Designed for wire-speed and non-blocking performance, the Brocade FCX Series includes 24- and 48-port models, in both Power over Ethernet (PoE) and non-PoE versions. Utilizing Brocade IronStack technology, organizations can stack up to The Brocade FCX Series can deliver both power and data across network connections, providing a single-cable solution for edge devices such as Voice over IP (VoIP) phones, video surveillance The Brocade FCX Series offers a comprehensive line of switches with specific models optimized for campus and data center deployments. BUILT FOR NEXT-GENERATION ENTERPRISE NETWORKS Figure 1. Brocade FCX Series switches can be stacked into a single logical switch and then redundantly connected to the aggregation layer using aggregated 10 GbE ports. POWER OVER ETHERNET PLUS In 2003, PoE became a standard with the approval of IEEE 802.3af, eliminating the need to have separate LAN cables for data and electrical cables for power. Class 3 PoE switches can deliver up to 15.4 watts of power across each port, providing converged power and data to devices such as VoIP phones, surveillance cameras, and wireless access points. While 15.4 watts of power is sufficient for many devices, PoE+ is an emerging standard (802.3at) that leverages modern CAT5e cabling to provide 30 watts of power per port—enabling higher-powered next-generation campus convergence devices such as wireless 802.11n access points, video conferencing phones, and pan/tilt surveillance cameras. Moreover, PoE+ is backward compatible with 802.3af PoE, and Brocade FCX Series switches can use LLDP to negotiate port settings dynamically. Dual-Aggregated 10 GbE Ports Aggregation Layer cameras, and wireless access points. The switches are compatible with industrystandard VoIP equipment as well as legacy IP phones. These switches support the emerging PoE Plus (PoE+) standard (802.3at) to provide up to 30 watts of power to each device. This high-powered solution simplifies wiring for next-generation solutions such as video conferencing phones, pan/tilt surveillance cameras, and 802.11n wireless access points. The PoE capability reduces the number of power receptacles and power adapters while increasing reliability and wiring flexibility. The 24-port Brocade FCX PoE model can supply full Class 3 (15.4 watts) or full PoE+ (30 watts) power to every port, and the 48port model can supply full Class 3 power to every port or full PoE+ power to 26 ports. The switches can power a combination of PoE and PoE+ devices while staying within the switches’ 820-watt power budget. Plug-and-Play Operations for Powered Devices The Brocade FCX Series supports the IEEE 802.1AB Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) and ANSI TIA 1057 Link Layer Discovery Protocol-Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED) standards that enable organizations to deploy interoperable multivendor solutions for Unified Communications (UC). Configuring IP endpoints such as VoIP phones can be a complex task requiring manual and time-consuming configuration. LLDP and LLDP-MED address this challenge, providing a standard, open method for configuring, discovering, and managing network infrastructure. The LLDP protocols help reduce operational costs by simplifying and automating network operations. For example, LLDP-MED provides an open protocol for configuring 64 Gbps Stacking Performance Brocade FCX Series Switches Stacked in a Logical Switch Quality of Service (QoS), security policies, Virtual LAN (VLAN) assignments, PoE power levels, and service priorities. INCREASED FLEXIBILITY AND SCALABILITY The Brocade FCX Series provides a wide range of flexibility and scalability advantages for dynamic and growing enterprise networks. Simplified, High-Performance, High-Availability Stacking Leveraging Brocade IronStack technology, up to eight Brocade FCX Series switches can be stacked into a single logical switch, providing simple and robust expandability for future growth at the network edge. This stacked switch has only a single IP address to simplify management. When new members are added to the stack, they automatically inherit the stack’s existing configuration file, enabling true plug-andplay network expansion. Brocade stacking technology delivers high availability, performing real-time state synchronization across the stack and enabling instantaneous hitless failover to a standby controller, if the master stack controller fails. In addition, organizations can use hot-insertion/removal of stack members to avoid interrupting service. Brocade FCX-S switch models offer two dedicated full-duplex 16 Gbps stacking ports that provide 64 Gbps of stacking bandwidth, essentially eliminating the need to work around inter-switch bottlenecks (see Figure 1). These dedicated stacking ports free up the 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports for high-speed connectivity to the aggregation or core layers—providing maximum flexibility in a compact access switch. Additionally, all Brocade FCX Series Figure 2. Brocade FCX 624 and Brocade FCX 648 switch models feature reversible front-to-back airflow, internal redundant hot-swappable power supplies, and a swappable fan assembly. switches can be stacked through their optional 10 GbE ports. with copper Twinax cables, supports flexible and cost-effective network architectures. The 10 GbE ports can also be trunked from different members of the stack to optimize performance and availability. For added flexibility, IronStack also supports the use of 10 GbE ports with fiber-optic cabling for stacking across racks, floors, and buildings. Industry-leading 4-port 10 GbE density in a 1U switch provides up to 40 Gbps of uplink bandwidth to the aggregation or core layers of the network. Even with the high-density 48-port model, this bandwidth enables a near 1:1 subscription ratio throughout the network. As a result, organizations can deploy highly utilized networks to avoid congestion during peak hours. Optional 10 GbE Module Brocade FCX-S switch models accept an optional 10 GbE module containing two XFP ports, enabling high-bandwidth connectivity to the aggregation or core layers, or extended switch stacking across long distances. Up to eight 10 GbE links can be aggregated in a stack, providing 80 Gbps of bandwidth between the wiring closet and the aggregation layer. Brocade FCX Series Models with Four Optional 10 GbE Uplinks Brocade FCX 624 and Brocade FCX 648 switch models accept an optional 10 GbE module containing four Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) ports, enabling highbandwidth connectivity to the aggregation or core layers, or creating a switch stack horizontally across a row of servers. Utilizing the SFP+ port form factor enables higher density, more flexible cabling options, and better energy efficiency. The ability to use short-range and long-range optics, along Flexible Cooling Options The Brocade FCX 624 and Brocade FCX 648 are the first Brocade Ethernet switches with reversible front-to-back airflow options. This design improves mounting flexibility in server racks, while adhering to the cooling guidelines of the data center. Organizations can specify airflow direction at the time of order and can reverse the direction after deployment by swapping the power supplies and the fan assembly. REDUCED POWER CONSUMPTION In today’s rapidly growing business environments, organizations need to minimize power consumption throughout the entire IT infrastructure. The Brocade FCX Series is designed to intelligently manage power usage, extending “green” initiatives to the wiring closet. Power to connected devices is automatically negotiated using the LLDP-MED protocol, providing the powered devices with exactly the amount of power they need. If devices go into sleep mode, they can request less power from the network, minimizing power usage in the campus environment. At as low as 1.22 watts/Gbps for non-PoE models and 1.41 watts/Gbps for PoE models, Brocade FCX Series switches consume minimal power for the performance and functionality they provide. HIGH RELIABILITY IN A COMPACT FORM FACTOR In addition to stack-level high-availability capabilities such as hitless failover and hot insertion and removal of stacked units, Brocade FCX Series switches include system-level high-availability features such as optional dual hot-swappable, loadsharing, redundant power supplies (see Figures 2 and 3). The modular design also has a removable fan assembly. These features provide another level of availability for the campus wiring closet and the data center in a compact form factor. Additional design features include intake and exhaust temperature sensors and fan spin detection to aid in fast identification of abnormal or failed operating conditions to help minimize mean time to repair. COMPREHENSIVE ENTERPRISECLASS SECURITY Figure 3. Brocade FCX-S switch models feature internal redundant hot-swappable power supplies and a swappable fan assembly, in addition to dedicated stacking ports and a rear-facing out-of-band management port. The Brocade FCX Series utilizes the Brocade IronWare operating system, providing a rich security suite for Layer 2 and Layer 3 services, Network Access Control (NAC), and Denial of Service (DoS) protection. IronWare security features include protection against TCP SYN and ICMP DoS attacks; Spanning Tree Root Guard and BPDU Guard to protect network spanning tree operations; and broadcast and multicast packet rate limiting. Additional security features include dynamic ARP inspection, DHCP snooping, and IP source guard to protect against address spoofing and man-in-the middle attacks. Network Access Control (NAC) Organizations can rely on key features such as multi-device port authentication and 802.1X authentication with dynamic policy assignment to control network access and perform targeted authorization on a per-user level. In addition, the Brocade FCX Series supports enhanced Media Access Control (MAC) policies with the ability to deny traffic to and from MAC addresses on a per-VLAN basis. This powerful tool helps organizations control access policies per endpoint device. Standards-based NAC also facilitates best-in-class solutions for authenticating network users and validating the security posture of connecting devices. Support for policy-controlled MAC-based VLANs provides additional control of network access, enabling policy-controlled assignment of devices to Layer 2 VLANs. Traffic Monitoring and Lawful Intercept Organizations might need to set up lawful traffic intercept due to today’s heightened security environment. For example, in the United States, the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) requires organizations to be able to intercept and replicate data traffic directed to a particular user, subnet, port, and so on. This capability is particularly essential in networks implementing VoIP phones. Brocade FCX Series switches provide the capability to meet this requirement through Access Control List (ACL)-based mirroring, MAC filter-based mirroring, and VLAN-based mirroring. Fiber to the Desktop for SecuritySensitive Applications The Brocade FCX 624S-F provides 24 SFP 100/1000 Mbps fiber-optic ports for government and military network initiatives or for applications requiring additional security and resiliency. For these types of network environments, fiber-optic cable is the ultimate transmission medium, because it does not emit electromagnetic signals that can be intercepted. And, unlike copper wires, optical fiber cannot be tapped without detection. Fiber-optic network links are also immune to Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI). Threat Detection and Mitigation The Brocade FCX Series utilizes embedded hardware-based sFlow traffic sampling to extend Brocade IronShield 360 security to the network edge. This unique and powerful closed-loop threat mitigation solution uses best-in-class intrusion detection systems to inspect traffic samples for possible network attacks. In response to a detected attack, Brocade Network Advisor can automatically apply a security policy to the compromised port, stopping network attacks in real time without administrator intervention. Advanced Multicast Features The Brocade FCX Series supports a rich set of Layer 2 multicast snooping features that enable advanced multicast services delivery. Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping for IGMP version 1, 2, and 3 is supported. Support for IGMPv3 source-based multicast snooping improves bandwidth utilization and security for multicast services. To enable multicast services delivery in IPv6 networks, the Brocade FCX Series supports Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) version 1 and 2 snooping——the multicast protocols used in IPv6 environments. NETWORK RESILIENCY THROUGH FAULT DETECTION Software features such as Virtual Switch Redundancy Protocol (VSRP), Brocade Metro-Ring Protocol (MRP) v1 and v2, Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), protected link groups, 802.3ad Link Aggregation, and trunk groups provide alternate paths for traffic in the event of a link failure. Sub-second fault detection utilizing Link Fault Signaling (LFS) and Remote Fault Notification (RFN) helps ensure fast fault detection and recovery. Enhanced spanning tree features such as Root Guard and BPDU Guard prevent rogue hijacking of a spanning tree root and maintain a contention- and loop-free environment, especially during dynamic network deployments. In addition, the Brocade FCX Series supports port-loop detection on edge ports that do not have spanning tree enabled. This capability protects the network from broadcast storms and other anomalies that can result from Layer 1 or Layer 2 loopbacks on Ethernet cables or endpoints. Protected link groups minimize disruption to the network by protecting critical links from loss of data and power. In a protected link group, one port in the group acts as the primary or active link, and the other ports act as secondary or standby links. The active link carries the traffic and, if it goes down, one of the standby links takes over. UniDirectional Link Detection (UDLD) monitors a link between two Brocade FCX Series switches and brings down the ports on both ends of the link if the link fails at any point between the two devices. The Brocade FCX Series also supports stability features such as port flap dampening, single-link Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), and port loop detection. ADVANCED CAPABILITIES To meet a wide range of requirements, the Brocade FCX Series provides full Layer 3 capabilities, along with metro features for connecting buildings and campuses. Full Layer 3 Capabilities All Brocade FCX switches come standard with powerful Layer 3 switching capabilities. Organizations can use Layer 3 features such as IPv4 OSPF and RIP routing, policy-based routing, VRRP, and Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM) to reduce complexity and enhance the reliability of large enterprise networks by bringing Layer 3 capabilities to the network edge. Advanced (-ADV) models include BGP routing capabilities, enabling remote offices to connect Brocade FCX Series switches to service provider networks. BGP routing can also be added to any Brocade FCX Series switch model through software key-based activation. Metro Features Connecting Buildings and Campuses Because Brocade FCX Series switches include Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) features, organizations can use them to connect a distributed enterprise. In this type of environment, Brocade FCX Series switches provide rich services using MRP (v1 and v2) for building resilient ringbased topologies, VLAN stacking (Q-in-Q), and advanced multicast capabilities— including IGMP v1/v2/v3 and Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) v1/v2 snooping for controlling multicast traffic for highbandwidth content delivery. SIMPLIFIED, SECURE MANAGEMENT BASED ON OPEN STANDARDS The Brocade FCX Series provides simplified, standards-based management capabilities that help organizations reduce administrative time and effort while securing their networks. Simplified Deployment with Auto-Configuration The Brocade FCX Series supports autoconfiguration, simplifying deployment with a truly plug-and-play experience. Organizations can use this feature to automate IP address and feature configuration of the switches without requiring a highly trained network engineer onsite. When the switches power up, they automatically receive an IP address and configuration from DHCP and Trivial File Transport Protocol (TFTP) servers. At this time, the switches can also automatically receive a software update to be at the same code revision as already installed switches. Open-Standards Management The Brocade FCX Series includes an industry-standard Command Line Interface (CLI) and supports Secure Shell (SSHv2), Secure Copy (SCP), and SNMPv3 to restrict and encrypt management communications to the system. In addition, support for Terminal Access Controller Access Control System (TACACS/TACACS+) and RADIUS authentication helps ensure secure operator access. wide troubleshooting, generating traffic reports, and gaining visibility into network activity from the edge to the core. Brocade Network Advisor centralizes management of the entire family of Brocade wired and wireless products, including the Brocade FCX Series. Out-of-Band Management BROCADE GLOBAL SERVICES The Brocade FCX Series includes an RJ-45 Ethernet port dedicated to out-of-band management, providing a remote path to manage the switches, regardless of the status or configuration of the data ports.
