Assured business continuity

Don’t let hardware or software failures take a critical network application offline and disrupt your business. Brocade FastIron SX switches feature redundant parts that instantly take over for failing components, ensuring continuous and seamless connectivity.

Superior performance for the campus core

The Brocade FastIron SX Series represents a portfolio of elite-performance, chassis-based switches built specifically for campus aggregation and core switching. They can handle extremely intensive and dynamic traffic levels, so you won’t need to add hardware and your investment is secure.
