Campus networking technologies leader Brocade has unveiled its new Brocade ICX 7750 Switch, which the company says is the first purpose designed high-density 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed-port solution to enable scale-out of campus aggregation.

"In the Middle East, customers are not typically tied down by legacy IT infrastructure investments. However, we often see that business here struggle to handle ever increasing workloads while maintaining quality of service and network agility. The new ICX 7750 builds upon Brocade's HyperEdge Architecture, enabling rapid scaling of networks, investment protection and reduction of both, costs and complexity," said Sufian Dweik, regional director, MEMA at Brocade.

Flexibly designed to offer up to 3,000 1/10 GbE ports, or 800 40 GbE ports in a single logical device, the new Brocade ICX 7750 switch is designed to deliver up to 82 terabits per second of aggregate switching capacity.

The scalability of the ICX 7750, which is touted to be a key feature of the new solution, means customers can progressively add switching capability at the core/aggregation layer when needed. The solution also offers a host of advanced enterprise-class features such as Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol Extended (VRRPe), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), robust IPV4/IPV6 support, Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT), and Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF).
