Revolutionizing the Way Data Center Networks Are Built

The Brocade VDX 6710 features 48 1 GbE copper interfaces and six 10 GbE SFP+ interfaces with low power consumption, making it an ideal platform for Top-of-Rack (ToR) fabric deployments in existing 1 GbE server environments. Together with Brocade VCS Fabric technology, this switch can simplify network design and operations for a more automated and efficient network, offer the flexibility needed to easily scale networks, and provide a cloud-ready infrastructure.

Additional Brocade VDX 6710 highlights include:

Performance and low latency: Maximizes performance with 1 GbE ports and ultra-low latency through wire-speed ports and automated hardware-based Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking.

Simplified architecture: Simplifies network architectures and enables cloud computing with Brocade VCS Fabric technology.

Easy configuration: Enables organizations to manage an entire VCS fabric as a single switch with Brocade VCS Logical Chassis.

Maximizes network utilization: Allows efficient, load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3, with multiple Layer 3 gateways.

Optimizes virtualization: Offers the automation needed to support highly virtualized server and storage environments while enabling the transition to cloud computing.
