supports today’s demanding video, Unified Communications (UC), VDI,
and mobile applications. 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

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.

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.

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.
