The FastIron LS Series meets these requirements with wire-speed architecture that delivers high-throughput for a range of Ethernet endpoints while assuring QoS for business critical applications. For cost-effective and rapid scaling at the network edge, the FastIron LS can be upgraded to support the Brocade IronStack technology, which allows stacking up to eight units that act as a logical chassis. The FastIron LS IronStack system supports 40Gbps switching capacity between stacked units providing a high-capacity interconnect across the stack. FastIron LS IronStack supports stacking over copper and fiber cables. This provides for flexible stack configurations in which stacked units can be separated by more than several hundred meters of fiber. The FastIron LS Series makes it easy to deploy a cost-effective, high-performance solution today that can be upgraded to support 10-GbE and stacking as needed to scale the intelligent edge. The FastIron LS switches support two types of single port 10-Gigabit Ethernet pluggable modules, the FLS-1XGC and the FLS-1XG. The FLS-1XGC supports a CX4 connector providing a cost-effective, high performance 10-Gigabit Ethernet solution for inter-switch or server-to-switch connectivity. The FLS-1XG supports a small form factor pluggable XFP transceiver. Supported XFP transceivers include SR, LR, ER, ZR, and ZRD optics supporting fiber lengths up to 80 Km. The Brocade IronStack Solution Ease of Use: Plug and Play The FastIron LS series may be ordered pre-configured with the Brocade IronStack stacking technology or upgraded in the field. IronStack is an advanced stacking technology that supports stacked configurations in which as many as eight FastIron GS and/or FastIron LS switches can be interconnected and maintain the operational simplicity of a single switch. An IronStack can be a mix-and-match of different FastIron GS and FastIron LS switch models providing for very flexible stack configurations. Each IronStack enabled FastIron GS or LS model can support up to 40Gbps of stacking bandwidth per unit. IronStack configurations can be built using 10-GbE CX4 copper or XFPbased fiber connections. When XFP-based fiber connections are used, an IronStack configuration can be extended between racks, floors, and buildings with fiber lengths up to several hundred meters. The FastIron LS Series supports the IEEE 802.1AB LLDP and ANSI TIA 1057 LLDPMED standards that enable organizations to deploy interoperable multi-vendor solutions. Configuring IP endpoints, such as VoIP stations can be a complex task requiring manual and time-consuming configuration. LLDP and LLDP-MED address these challenges, providing organizations with a standard and open method for configuring, discovering, and managing their network infrastructure, thereby simplifying and reducing the cost of operations. For example, LLDP-MED provides an open protocol for configuring QoS, security policies, VLAN assignments, and service priorities. Additionally, LLDP-MED provides for the discovery of device location and asset identity, information that is used for inventory management and by emergency response services, such as Enhanced 911 (E911). These sophisticated features make network services easier to deploy and operate while enabling new and critical services. The FastIron LS STK models are preconfigured with two one-port 10-GbE CX4 modules, expanded CPU memory, an IronStack license (IronStack PROM) and software. The CX4 module in the STK models can be replaced in the field with any of the optional 10-GbE modules available for the FastIron LS. An IronStack system operates as a single logical chassis (with a single IP management address) and supports crossmember trunking, mirroring, switching, static routing, sFlow, multicast snooping and other switch functions across the stack. An IronStack has a single configuration file and supports remote console access from any stack member. Support for active-standby controller failover, stack link failover, and hot insertion and removal of stack members delivers the resilience that is typical of higher end modular switches. The FastIron LS Series supports DHCP client-based auto-configuration, simplifying customer deployment and configuration providing true Plug-and-Play. Enterprises can use this feature to automate the IP address and feature configuration of FastIron LS switches without the presence of a highly-trained network engineer on-site. Technicians can simply power up a new FastIron LS and the unit will automatically receive an IP address and configuration from DHCP and TFTP servers. Autoconfiguration provides an intelligent solution to reduce operating expenses and simplify network management. Comprehensive Enterprise-Class Security Traffic Monitoring and Lawful Intercept FastIron LS switches are powered by the Brocade IronWare operating software, which offers a rich set of Layer 2 switching services and Layer 3 routing functionality, an advanced security suite for network access control (NAC) and denial of service protection, and QoS. IronWare embedded security features include protection against Denial of Service (DOS) attacks via TCP SYN, ICMP smurf attack prevention, and broadcast and multicast packet rate limiting. The FastIron LS also supports key security features such as Spanning Tree Root Guard and BPDU Guard to protect network spanning tree operation. In non-stacking configurations, the FastIron LS series offers additional security features, including dynamic ARP inspection and DHCP snooping to protect against address spoofing and manin-the middle attacks. In response to today’s heightened security environment, organizations may be required to set up traffic intercept (lawful intercept). For example, in the United States, the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) requires that businesses be able to intercept and replicate data traffic directed to a particular user, subnet, port, etc. This capability is particularly essential in networks implementing IP telephony. The FastIron LS provides the capability necessary to support this requirement through ACL-based Mirroring, MAC Filter-based Mirroring, and VLAN-based Mirroring. Network managers can apply a “mirror ACL” on a port to mirror a traffic stream based on IP source/destination address, TCP/UDP source/destination ports, and IP protocols such as ICMP, IGMP, TCP, and UDP. A MAC filter can be applied on a port to mirror a traffic stream based on a source/destination MAC address. VLANBased mirroring is another option for CALEA compliance. Many enterprises have servicespecific VLANs, such as voice VLANs. With VLAN mirroring, all traffic on an entire VLAN within a switch can be mirrored, or specific VLANs can be transferred to a remote server. Network Access Control Network managers can rely on features such as multi-device and 802.1X authentication with dynamic policy assignment to control network access and perform targeted authorization on a peruser level. FastIron LS switches also support enhanced MAC policies with the ability to deny traffic to and from a MAC address on a per-VLAN basis. This powerful tool allows network administrators to control access policies for each endpoint device. Standards-based NAC enables network operators to deploy best-of-breed NAC solutions for authenticating network users and validating the security posture of a connecting device. Support for policycontrolled MAC-based VLANs provides additional control of network access, allowing for policy-controlled assignments of devices to Layer 2 VLANs. Threat Detection and Mitigation Support for embedded, hardware-based sFlow traffic sampling extends the Brocade IronShield 360 security shield to the network edge. This unique and powerful closed loop threat mitigation solution uses best-of-breed intrusion detection systems to inspect sFlow traffic samples for possible network attacks. In response to a detected attack, IronView® Network Manager (INM) can apply a security policy to the compromised port. This automated threat detection and mitigation stops network attacks in real time, without human intervention. This advanced security capability provides a network-wide security umbrella without the added complexity and cost of ancillary sensors. Advanced Multicast Features FastIron LS switches support 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. IGMPv3 sourcebased multicast snooping improves bandwidth utilization and security for multicast services. such as IPv4 static routes, virtual interfaces (VE), routing between directly connected subnets, RIPv1/v2 announce, VRRP, DHCP Relay, and routed interfaces. To enable multicast service delivery in IPv6 networks, the FastIron LS supports Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) v1 and v2 snooping - the multicast protocols used in IPv6 environments. In non-stacking configurations, the FastIron LS models support an optional Edge Layer 3 feature set (EPREM)*. These edge Layer 3 features enable dynamic routing via OSFPv1/v2 and RIPv1/v2 in addition to the Base Layer 3 features. With FastIron LS Base Layer 3 and the optional EPREM upgrade, network managers can deploy end-to-end Layer 3 networks and deploy the same routing policies from edge to core, simplifying network design and operations. Building Resilient Networks with Advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 Protocols Unified and Secure Element Management Software features such as Virtual Switch Redundancy Protocol (VSRP), the Brocade Metro Ring Protocol (MRP I and II), 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. Subsecond fault detection utilizing Link Fault Signaling and Remote Fault Notification ensures rapid fault detection and recovery. Enhanced Spanning Tree features such as Root Guard and BPDU Guard prevent rogue hijacking of spanning tree root and maintain a contention and loop-free environment, especially during dynamic network deployments. Additionally, the FastIron LS 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. Base Layer 3 functionality enhances the capability of the FastIron LS IronStack and standalone models. Base Layer 3 allows enterprises to use simple Layer 3 features The Brocade INM provides unified network management for the FastIron LS Series. INM greatly simplifies network operations, provisioning, troubleshooting, and alarm reporting. INM offers multilevel access security on the console and a secure Web management interface that prevents unauthorized users from accessing or changing the switch configuration. INM employs a Java-based network configuration and management tool that displays, in graphical detail, network and application level traffic information. Network managers can accurately monitor overall networking operation, zero in on hot spots, and quickly diagnose and troubleshoot difficulties before they develop into widespread network problems. The FastIron LS Series includes Secure Shell (SSHv2), Secure Copy, and SNMPv3 to restrict and encrypt management communications to the system. Additionally, support for Terminal Access Controller Access Control System (TACACS/TACACS+) and RADIUS authentication ensure secure operator access. *Available only on the standalone FastIron LS. This feature is not available on the IronStack enabled FastIron LS. Fault Detection FastIron LS switches support logical fault detection through software features such as Link Fault Signaling (LFS), Remote Fault Notification (RFN), Protected Link Groups, and Unidirectional Link Detection (UDLD). • Link Fault Signaling (LFS) is a physical layer protocol that ensures bi-directional communication on a link between two 10-GbE switches, thereby allowing switches on both sides to disable the link. • Remote Fault Notification (RFN) enabled on 1 GB transmit ports notifies the remote port whenever the fiber cable is either physically disconnected or has failed. When this occurs the devices on both sides of the link disable the link and turn OFF the associated LEDs. • 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. If the active link goes down, one of the standby links takes over. • UDLD monitors a link between two FastIron LS switches and brings the ports on both ends of the link down if the link fails at any point between the two devices. FastIron LS switches support enhanced Digital Optical Monitoring of Brocade XFP optics providing real time detection resulting in reduced down time. Network managers can use the enhanced Digital Optical Monitoring capability to monitor the health and strength of the transceivers. Key optic parameters that can be monitored include TX/RX power, temperature, and bias current. The switch will generate alarms when any of these parameters go beyond the normal range. In addition, the FastIron LS switches support stability features such as Port Flap Dampening, single link LACP, and Port Loop Detection. Port Flap Dampening increases the resilience and availability of the network by limiting the number of port state transitions on an interface. This reduces the protocol overhead and network inefficiencies caused by frequent state transitions occurring on misbehaving ports. Single link LACP provides a fast detection scheme for unidirectional or bi-directional faults. This standards-based solution works with other switch vendors. The Port Loop Detection feature enables network managers to detect and prevent Layer 1 and Layer 2 loops without using STP. Enterprises that do not enable a Layer 2 Protocol, such as STP to detect physical loops at the edge can use Port Loop Detection.
