Brocade Campus Fabric Technology: Extending Options and Scalability

Brocade Campus Fabric technology, offered for Brocade ICX 7250*, 7450, and 7750 Switches, extends network options and scalability. It integrates premium Brocade ICX 7750, midrange Brocade ICX 7450, and entry-level Brocade ICX 7250 Switches, collapsing network access, aggregation, and core layers into a single logical switch. This logical device shares network services while reducing management touch points and network hops through a singlelayer design spanning the entire campus network. These powerful deployments deliver equivalent or better functionality than large, rigid modular chassis systems, but with significantly lower costs and smaller carbon footprints.

Brocade ICX switches support a Distributed Chassis deployment model that uses standards-based optics and cabling interface connections to help ensure maximum distance between campus switches—up to 80 km—and minimum cabling costs—up to 50 percent less than incumbent solutions. This gives organizations the flexibility to deliver ports wherever they are needed on campus at a fraction of the cost. The Distributed Chassis design future-proofs campus networks by allowing networks to easily and cost-effectively expand in scale and capabilities.

Leading-Edge Flexibility and Reliability

The Brocade ICX 7750 provides a highly flexible 10/40 GbE aggregation solution that offers the highest levels of reliability and port density available in a 1U form factor. The Brocade ICX 7750 is available in three models: the Brocade ICX 7750-48F, 7750-48C, and 7750-26Q. The Brocade ICX 7750-48F and 7750-48C both offer 48 10 GbE ports (SFP+ and 10GBASE-T, respectively) and up to 12 40 GbE ports (six optional). The Brocade ICX 7750-26Q offers up to 32 40 GbE QSFP+ ports (six optional).

All models support stacking, which allows organizations to buy only the ports they need now and expand later by adding switches to the stack where and when they are needed. This eliminates the need for a forklift upgrade and helps avoid provisioning an underutilized, centralized chassis. In addition, the Brocade ICX 7750 supports redundant, hot-swappable AC or DC power supplies and fans, reversible airflow, and advanced software.

Distributed Chassis Architecture for Ultimate Flexibility

The Brocade ICX 7750 Switch redefines the economics of enterprise networking by delivering a unique 10/40 GbE campus aggregation solution in a fixed form factor and new levels of performance, availability, and flexibility. It provides the capabilities of a chassis with the flexibility and costeffectiveness of a stackable switch.

The Brocade ICX 7750 delivers wirespeed, non-blocking performance across all ports to support latency-sensitive applications such as real-time voice/ video streaming and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). Up to 12 Brocade ICX 7750 Switches can be stacked together using up to 12 full-duplex 40 Gbps standard QSFP+ stacking ports that provide an unprecedented maximum of 5.76 Tbps of aggregated stacking bandwidth with full redundancy, eliminating inter-switch bottlenecks (see Figure 4).

ICX 7750 Switches
Figure 4. Up to 12 Brocade ICX 7750 Switches can be stacked using up to 12 standard full-duplex 40 Gbps QSFP+ ports per switch, providing up to 5.76 Tbps of aggregated stacking bandwidth.

High Availability with Hitless Failover

Organizations can count on Brocade ICX 7750 Switches to deliver continuous availability for an optimized user experience. Brocade stacking technology helps provide high availability, performing real-time state synchronization across the stack and enabling instantaneous hitless failover to a standby controller in the unlikely event of a failure of the master stack controller. Organizations also can use hot-insertion/removal of stack members to avoid interrupting service when adding a switch to increase the capacity of a stack or replacing a switch that needs servicing. These features provide another level of availability for the campus wiring closet in a compact form factor. Additional design features include intake and exhaust temperature sensors and fan spin detection to quickly identify abnormal or failed operating conditions— helping to minimize mean time to repair.

Increased Reliability through Redundancy and Intelligence

The Brocade ICX 7750 includes dualinternal redundant power supplies. These power supplies are hot-swappable and load-sharing with auto-sensing and autoswitching capabilities, which are critical for power redundancy and deployment flexibility (see Figure 5).

ICX 7750
Figure 5. The Brocade ICX 7750 features hot-swappable redundant power supplies (1+1) and fans (3+1), and a hot-swappable 6×40 GbE ports module that can be used for stacking or as additional 40 GbE data ports.

The hot-swappable power supplies (1+1) and fan assembly (3+1) allow organizations to replace components without service disruption. In addition, several highavailability and fault-detection features help in failover of critical data flows, enhancing overall system availability and reliability. Organizations can use Brocade Network Advisor and sFlow-based network monitoring and trending to proactively monitor risk areas and optimize network resources.

The Brocade ICX 7750 supports In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU), a capability typically available only on high-end chassis with multiple management modules. The multicore CPU of the Brocade ICX 7750 can run multiple virtual control/management planes, enabling one management plane to be upgraded while another keeps the switch in service.

Brocade Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT) supports dual homing of wiring closet access switches, or servers in a rack, to two Brocade ICX 7750 stacks in an MCT peer group, eliminating the risk of a single point of failure. In conjunction with MCT, VRRP-E (the Brocade extension to VRRP for MCT) provides redundancy and sub-second failover for both Layer 2 and Layer 3 . For metro or campus deployments in a ring topology, the Brocade Metro Ring Protocol (MRP-I and MRP-II) prevents Layer 2 loops and enables faster re-convergence than Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) with sub-second failover.

SDN-enabled Programmatic Control Of The Network

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a powerful new network paradigm designed for the world's most demanding networking environments and promises breakthrough levels of customization, scale, and efficiency. The Brocade ICX 7750 enables SDN by supporting the OpenFlow 1.0 and 1.3 protocols, which allow communication between an OpenFlow controller and an OpenFlowenabled switch. Using this approach, organizations can control their networks programmatically, transforming the network into a platform for innovation through new network applications and services. The Brocade ICX 7750 delivers OpenFlow in true hybrid port mode. With Brocade hybrid port mode, organizations can simultaneously deploy traditional Layer 2/3 forwarding with OpenFlow on the same port. This unique capability provides a pragmatic path to SDN by enabling network administrators to progressively integrate OpenFlow into existing networks, giving them the programmatic control offered by SDN for specific flows while the remaining traffic is forwarded as before. Brocade ICX 7750 hardware support for OpenFlow enables organizations to apply these capabilities at line rate in 10 GbE and 40 GbE networks.

Greener Campus And Data Center Networks With Lower TCO

As application data and storage requirements continue to rise exponentially, demand for higher port density and bandwidth grows, along with the number of network devices and power consumption. Organizations seeking to reduce TCO need solutions that can provide higher scalability and density per rack unit, thereby reducing power consumption and heat dissipation.

The Brocade ICX 7750 addresses those needs with a state-of-the-art ASIC, reversible airflow, automatic fan-speed control, and power-efficient optics to ensure the most efficient use of power and cooling. For lowcost, low-latency, and low-energy-consuming cabling within and between the racks, the Brocade ICX 7750 supports SFP+ Direct Attach Copper (Twinax) cables at up to 5 meters. For switch-to-switch connectivity, the Brocade ICX 7750 supports low-power- consuming SFP+ and 40GBASE-SR4 QSFP+ optical transceivers at up to 100 meters. In high-port-density deployments, these features save significant operating costs.

Superior ROI And Investment Protection

The Brocade ICX 7750 combines strategic performance, availability, and scalability advantages with investment protection for existing LAN environments. It utilizes the same Brocade FastIron operating system used by other Brocade Ethernet/ IP products. This helps ensure full forward and backward compatibility among the product family while simplifying software maintenance and field upgrades.

Moreover, the use of the same industrystandard Command Line Interface (CLI) eliminates the need for staff retraining. As a result, the Brocade ICX 7750 enables organizations to better leverage their current training, tools, devices, and processes. Brocade enables organizations to further maximize their investments by not requiring additional licensing fees for advanced Layer 3 features, including IPv6 routing.

Simplified, Standards-based Management

Deploying more switches in a data center infrastructure can increase overall network performance, but it can also prevent organizations from gaining a complete view of network capacity, bandwidth consumption, utilization, and overall health.

To overcome this challenge, the Brocade ICX 7750 utilizes sFlow, a unique solution that helps simplify network management and monitoring. By providing real-time visibility into the network, sFlow helps organizations effectively manage transactions flowing throughout the network. This open standards-based approach integrates with a wide range of management, monitoring, and trending utilities. For example, organizations can use Brocade Network Advisor to manage all Brocade data center Ethernet/ IP switches and routers, including Brocade VDX switches, Brocade ICX switches, Brocade FCX Series switches, Brocade ServerIron ADX Series application delivery switches, and Brocade MLXe core routers.

The Brocade ICX 7750 also supports the IEEE 802.1AB LLDP standard, enabling organizations to build open, converged, and advanced multivendor networks. LLDP greatly simplifies and enhances network management, asset management, and network troubleshooting.

With the resulting insight, organizations can quickly and accurately review overall data center operations, identify hot spots, and quickly diagnose and troubleshoot issues before they develop into widespread problems. The Brocade ICX 7750 also provides accurate SNMP/RMON statistics to Brocade Network Advisor, reducing the administrative burden normally associated with proactive network management, design, and capacity planning.

Purpose-built Feature Set

The Brocade ICX 7750 combines a wide range of unique features to help organizations overcome the most challenging business requirements.

Industry-Leading Advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 Feature
To provide self-healing topologies in Layer 2 configurations, the Brocade ICX 7750 supports industry-standard Ethernet protocols, including multiple varieties of STP and link aggregation as well as optic-, link-, and switch-level fault detection and correction features. The advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 feature set is leveraged from Brocade FastIron switches that have been field-proven in enterprise and data center networks for more than a decade. With rich Layer 3 features enabled, organizations can utilize the Brocade ICX 7750 in several environments.

Data Protection through Robust Security
Security is a critical requirement in today's data centers and branch offices, and the Brocade ICX 7750 provides robust security through a wide range of advanced features. Organizations can use both regular and extended Access Control Lists (ACLs) to control access to and through data center networks.

Organizations can use control policies that permit or deny traffic based on a wide variety of identification characteristics—such as source/destination MAC addresses, source/destination IP addresses, TCP/UDP ports/sockets, and well-known port numbers—further protecting and restricting network access. In addition, for maximum security the Brocade ICX 7750 also leverages 802.11x security, MAC authentication, port MAC security, and MAC filter enhancements.

The Brocade ICX 7750 implements hardware-based ACL, so security does not adversely affect switching performance. In addition, the Brocade ICX 7750 provides hardware-based protection against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks (ICMP flood and TCP SYN) as well as hardware-based private VLAN attacks— with no impact on CPU utilization. Also, BPDU Guard and Root Guard prevent rogue hijacking of the spanning tree root and maintain a contention-free—and loop-free— environment, especially during dynamic network deployments.

Advanced QoS to Improve Data Traffic Integrity
The Brocade ICX 7750 offers superior QoS features designed to ensure high-reliability services throughout the data center. It can identify, mark, classify, reclassify, and manage traffic based on specific criteria. This enables organizations to classify bandwidth-critical application traffic, discriminating among various traffic flows and enforcing bandwidth policies.

After the traffic is classified, organizations have complete control over the method the system uses to service the queues: Weighted Round Robin (WRR), Strict Priority (SP), or a mix of both. For granular control to Brocade I CX 6450 Brocade HyperEge M ixed Stack Brocade I CX 7750 Access MCT regulate bandwidth utilization, the Brocade ICX 7750 can also perform ingress rate limiting and egress rate shaping.

Multicast-based Applications
The use of video, financial, and other oneto-many applications requires support for scalable multicast services. The Brocade ICX 7750 supports IGMPv1/2/3, PIMSM/SSM/DM, MSDP, Anycast RP, and PIM Snooping for optimized multicast forwarding. In addition, the Brocade ICX 7750 provides storm-control features to contain and intelligently switch rather than broadcast multicast traffic.

Key Solution Areas

The Brocade ICX 7750 provides a highperformance, cost-effective solution for many types of campus and data center environments, including 10/40 GbE aggregation of campus access switches, Top-of-Rack (ToR) server connectivity, and HPC environments.

Campus Aggregation for Enterprise Networks
The Brocade ICX 7750 provides the necessary advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 features, high 10/40 GbE port density, and high-availability capabilities to be deployed as a campus aggregation solution. A stack of Brocade ICX 7750 Switches interconnected with 40 GbE links makes a cost-effective, highly available campus aggregation solution.

Collapsed Campus Aggregation/ Core
Traditional three-tier network design, with “big-box” chassis at the aggregation and core layers, requires a significant up-front investment and offers limited deployment flexibility and future-proofing. In contrast, a distributed “multi-box” architecture at the aggregation and core layers can deliver much greater scalability and future-proofing with an easier “upgrade as you go” model. This type of architecture enables network architects to add capacity exactly where it is needed in the network, unlike a big-box chassis approach, with all ports located in the same closet.

Thanks to rapid technology evolution and innovative thinking, Brocade is able to offer the first stackable solution for campus aggregation and small core that delivers higher performance and port density than a traditional midsize chassis, while offering the same level of reliability and availability. Brocade longdistance stacking technology enables a ring of Brocade ICX 7750 Switches interconnected with 40 GbE stacking links and separated by up to 10 km each to be used as a combined aggregation and core layer for a midsize campus (see Figure 6).

The stackable Brocade ICX 7750 is ideal for deployment as a cost-effective, high-performance solution, forming a single campus-wide ring and combining the aggregation and core layers in a single logical device.
Figure 6. The stackable Brocade ICX 7750 is ideal for deployment as a cost-effective, high-performance solution, forming a single campus-wide ring and combining the aggregation and core layers in a single logical device.

Data Center ToR Server Connectivity
The Brocade ICX 7750 is designed to fit in server racks, and it consumes only one rack unit. To simplify cabling, the 10 GbE Network Interface Cards (NICs) in the servers connect to the Brocade ICX 7750 10 GbE ports by using fiber and SFP+ optical transceivers, SFP+ Direct Attach Copper cable, or standard copper Ethernet twisted pair cables with 10GBASE-T (see Figure 7).

The Brocade ICX 7750 provides data center aggregation with Brocade ICX 6610 and 6450 Switches providing ToR access.
Figure 7. The Brocade ICX 7750 provides data center aggregation with Brocade ICX 6610 and 6450 Switches providing ToR access.

If any servers in the rack have only 1 GbEcapable NICs, organizations can connect them to the same Brocade ICX 7750 Switch by using a 10 GbE port as a 1 GbE port through an SFP or copper port. The Brocade ICX 7750 ToR switch can connect to the data center middle-of-row/end-of-row aggregation chassis with either 10 GbE or 40 GbE, usually through link aggregation.

The Brocade ICX 7750 provides data center ToR access while Brocade MLXe routers provide an aggregation/core solution.

Cost-Effective 10 GbE Aggregation
In data center environments where most servers are 1 GbE-capable, the Brocade ICX 7750 provides a compact and cost-effective 10 GbE aggregation switch. It connects to the data center core through 10 GbE or 40 GbE ports, and it uses 10 GbE links to connect to Brocade ICX ToR switches at the edge of the network (see Figure 8).

The Brocade ICX 7750 provides data center ToR access while Brocade MLXe routers provide an aggregation/core solution.
Figure 8. The Brocade ICX 7750 provides data center ToR access while Brocade MLXe routers provide an aggregation/core solution.
