In addition, they leverage the innovative Brocade HyperEdge® Architecture, which provides simplified network deployment and management, scale-out networking, and investment protection with the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership. Brocade HyperEdge Architecture The Brocade HyperEdge Architecture increases organizational agility by bringing the campus network into the modern era. This evolutionary architecture removes the complexity of legacy campus architectures by collapsing unnecessary network layers and removing legacy protocols, such as spanning tree with inactive links. The HyperEdge Architecture also integrates innovative new features with existing network technologies to streamline application deployment, simplify management, and reduce operational costs. HyperEdge Architecture Key Design Principles The Brocade HyperEdge Architecture employs three design principles to modernize and simplify the network, enabling better business agility and productivity: •Consolidated management: Reduces unnecessary network layers to create large HyperEdge management domains that eliminate individual switch touch points, easing maintenance time and costs. •Shared network services: Allows premium and entry-level switches that share a common HyperEdge management domain to also share advanced Layer 2/3 services, achieving lower price-per-port functionality. •Scale-out networking: Integrates high- performance, fixed form-factor switches to create a single logical device that is independent of physical location and allows organizations to scale ports when and where needed across the campus. Brocade offers multiple implementation options to achieve the benefits of the HyperEdge Architecture design principles (see Figure 1), including: consolidated management, shared services, and scale-out networking across an ever-increasing number of network ports. •Mixed Stack: Integrates premium HyperEdge Mixed Stack Deployment and entry-level Brocade ICX 6610 and 6430/6450 Switches to collapse the network access and aggregation layers into a single HyperEdge domain that shares network services while reducing management touch points and network hops. HyperEdge Architecture Implemenation Options The Brocade HyperEdge Architecture provides a flexible, distributed chassis configuration using the Brocade ICX family of high-performance, fixed switches, instead of bulky, rigid modular chassis systems. Organizations can mix and match individual switches with the features and capabilities needed to meet specific requirements at each location, then combine them using either the Brocade Mixed Stack or Brocade Switch Port Extender* enabling technologies to create a customized, distributed chassis designed for their requirements. As requirements change, organizations can simply and easily add switches to the distributed chassis while maintaining the consolidated management, shared services, and scale-out networking within a single HyperEdge domain. •Switch Port Extender: Integrates Brocade ICX 7250, 7450, and 7750 stackable switches to collapse the network access, aggregation, and core layers into a single HyperEdge domain. This provides the density and reliability of large chassis switches at a fraction of the cost, while distributing ports where needed on the campus. These implementation options can also be integrated into an existing legacy network for incremental adoption. As Brocade continues to further develop and expand the HyperEdge Architecture, new implementation options will become available that deliver the benefits of Aggregation Switch Port Extender Collapsed Core/Aggregation/Access Mixed Stacks Mixed Stacks for Brocade ICX 6xxx Access/Aggregation/Core Access/Aggregation Core Collapsed Access/Aggregation Switch Port Extender Switch Port Extender for Brocade ICX 7xxx Figure 1: Simplifying legacy three-tier architectures with Brocade HyperEdge Architecture implementation options. * Support 2 to be available in a future release. Mixed stacking provides all the benefits of traditional stacking, in which all switch members are alike, all links within the stack are active (no Spanning Tree Protocol [STP]), and management is accomplished from a single IP address. However, by adding the unique capability to share network services between switches, a HyperEdge mixed stack becomes a powerful solution. HyperEdge shared services enable the extension of premium switch services to all ports of all members of the stack, including entrylevel switches. This capability provides two distinct advantages: significant per-port cost reduction and long-term investment protection. HyperEdge Switch Port Extender Deployment Access Mixed Stacks Core Legacy Three-Tier Architecture The Mixed Stack enabling technology, offered for Brocade ICX 6610 and 6430/6450 Switches, integrates premium Brocade ICX 6610 and entrylevel Brocade ICX 6450 Switches to collapse the network access and aggregation layers into a single HyperEdge domain. This domain shares network services while reducing management touch points and network hops (due to fewer network layers) as compared to legacy three-tier designs. Brocade Switch Port Extender* technology, offered for Brocade ICX 7250, 7450, and 7750 Switches, extends network options and scalability. It integrates premium Brocade ICX 7750, midrange Brocade ICX 7450, and entry-level Brocade ICX 7250 Switches, collapsing network access, aggregation, and core layers into a single HyperEdge domain. This domain shares network services while reducing management touch points and network hops through a single layer design spanning the entire campus network. These powerful deployments deliver equivalent or better functionality than large, rigid modular chassis systems, but with significantly lower costs and smaller carbon footprints. As a result, Switch Port Extender offers a level of flexibility, ease of deployment, and total cost of ownership unmatched by traditional access, aggregation, and smallcore chassis solutions. Brocade ICX switches support Distributed Chassis deployment models that use standards-based optics and cabling interface connections to ensure maximum distance between campus switches—up to 80 km—and minimum cabling costs— up to 50 percent less than incumbent solutions. This gives organizations the flexibility to deliver ports wherever they are needed on campus at a fraction of the cost. The Distributed Chassis design future-proofs campus networks by allowing networks to easily and costeffectively expand in scale and capabilities. SDN-Enabled Programmatic Control of the Network Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a powerful new network paradigm designed for the world’s most demanding networking environments and promises breakthrough levels of customization, scale, and efficiency. Brocade ICX switches enable SDN by supporting the OpenFlow 1.3† protocol, which allows communication between an OpenFlow controller and an OpenFlow-enabled switch. Using this approach, organizations can control their networks programmatically, transforming the network into a platform for innovation through new network applications and services. Brocade ICX switches deliver OpenFlow in true hybrid port mode, which allows organizations to simultaneously deploy traditional Layer 2/3 forwarding with OpenFlow on the same port. This unique † capability provides a pragmatic path to SDN by enabling network administrators to progressively integrate OpenFlow into existing networks, giving them the programmatic control offered by SDN for specific flows while the remaining traffic is forwarded as before. Brocade ICX hardware support for OpenFlow enables organizations to apply these capabilities at line rate. Unified Wired/Wireless Network Management With Brocade Network Advisor Managing enterprise campus networks continues to become more complex due to the growth in services that rely on wired and wireless networks. Services such as Internet, e-mail, video conferencing, real-time collaboration, and distance learning all have specific configuration and management requirements. At the same time, organizations face increasing demand to provide uninterrupted services for high-quality voice and Unified Communications (UC), wireless mobility, and multimedia applications. To reduce complexity and the time spent managing these environments, the easy-to-use Brocade Network Advisor discovers, manages, and deploys configurations to groups of IP devices. By using Brocade Network Advisor, organizations can configure Virtual LANs (VLANs) within the network, manage wireless access points, and execute commands on specific IP devices or groups of IP devices. sFlowbased proactive monitoring is ideal for performing network-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 products and third-party wireless products. Flexible, Long-Distance Stacking for the Most Demanding Enterprise Environments Brocade stacking technology makes it possible to stack up to 12 Brocade ICX switches into a single logical switch using standard SFP+ or QSFP+ Ethernet connections. This allows Brocade ICX switches to provide class-leading backplane bandwidth, between 80 Gbps and 240 Gbps, as well as simple and robust expandability for future growth at the network edge (see Figure 3). A selection of standard SFP+ and QSFP+ copper cables or optics can be used to stack Brocade ICX switches together, enabling stacking over distances of up to 10 km and thereby eliminating the need for stacked switches to be colocated in the same wiring closet. This stacked logical switch also has only a single IP address to simplify management and offers transparent STP-free traffic forwarding and shared Link Aggregation Groups (LAG) across a pool of up to 576 1 GbE or 10 GbE ports (depending on the platform deployed). When new switches join the stack, they automatically inherit the stack’s existing configuration file, enabling true plug-and-play network expansion. Brocade stacking technology also delivers high availability, enabling instantaneous hitless failover to a standby stack controller if the master stack controller fails. In addition, organizations can use hotinsertion and removal of stack members to avoid interrupting network services. Simplified, Open Standards-Based Management and Monitoring Brocade ICX switches provide simplified, standards-based management capabilities that help organizations reduce administrative time and effort while securing their networks. Available on select Brocade ICX switches today; future availability for other Brocade ICX switches. 3 Simplified, Automated Deployment with Auto-Configuration Figure 3: Brocade ICX switches can be stacked together using standard SFP+ or QSFP+ ports and optics to create a single logical device over distances up to 10 Km sFlow-based “Always-On” Network Monitoring sFlow is a modern, standards-based network export protocol (RFC 3176) that addresses many of the challenges that network managers face today. By embedding sFlow hardware support into Brocade ICX switches, Brocade delivers an “always-on” technology that operates with wire-speed performance. sFlow dramatically reduces implementation costs compared to traditional network monitoring solutions that rely on mirrored ports, probes, and line-tap technologies. Moreover, sFlow gives organizations full, enterprise-wide monitoring capability for every port in the network. 4 Brocade ICX switches support 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 currently installed switches. Open Standards Management Brocade ICX switches include an industrystandard Command Line Interface (CLI) and support 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. Enterprise-Class Availability When every second matters, Brocade ICX switches help deliver continuous availability to optimize the user experience. Brocade stacking technology delivers high availability, performing real-time state synchronization across the stack and enabling instantaneous hitless failover to a standby controller in the unlikely event of a failure of the master stack controller. Organizations also can use hot-insertion/ removal of stack members to avoid interrupting service when adding a switch to increase the capacity of a stack or replacing a switch that needs servicing. In addition to stack-level high availability, Brocade ICX switches include systemlevel high-availability features, such as dual hot-swappable, load-sharing, and redundant power supplies (depending on the platform deployed). The modular design also has dual hot-swappable fan trays. These features provide another level of availability for the campus wiring closet, all in a compact form factor. Additional design features include intake and exhaust temperature sensors and fan spin detection to quickly identify abnormal or failed operating conditions—helping to minimize mean time to repair.
