Industry-leading Brocade switches are the foundation for high-performance connectivity in storage, IP, and converged network environments. These highly reliable, scalable switches are designed for a wide range of environments including IP phone systems and VoIP solutions, enabling a low total cost of ownership and fast return on investment.
Brocade switches provide Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) and are fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3af PoE and IEEE 802.3at PoE+ specifications for delivering in-line power. PoE technology eliminates the need for an electrical outlet and a dedicated Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) near IP-powered devices. Brocade switches enable power to be consolidated and centralized in wiring closets, improving the reliability and resiliency of the network, and because PoE can provide power over existing Ethernet cables, power is continuous, even during a power failure. In addition, PoE provides several useful features to control, prioritize, and manage power precisely.
From enterprise data centers to the service provider core, Brocade develops extraordinary networking solutions to help today’s data-intensive organizations operate more efficiently and maximize the business value of their data.
