The Brocade FastIron CX series of switches provides a good level of performance, scalability, and flexibility required for today's enterprise campus networks. With advanced capabilities, these switches deliver performance and intelligence to the network edge in a flexible 1U form factor that helps reduce infrastructure and administrative costs.

FastIron CX switches deliver both power and data across network connections, providing a single-cable solution for campus edge devices such as Voice over IP (VoIP) phones, video surveillance cameras, and wireless access point. The switches are compatible with industry-standard VoIP equipment as well as legacy IP phones. These switches support the emerging PoE Plus standard (802.3at) to provide up to 30 watts of power to each device. This high-powered solution simplifies wiring for solutions such as videoconferencing phones, pan/tilt surveillance cameras, and 802.11n wireless access points. The PoE capability reduces the number of power receptacles and power adaptors while increasing reliability and wiring flexibility.

FastIron CX switches include two dedicated 16 Gbps stacking ports, providing simple and robust expandability for future growth at the network edge. Leveraging IronStack technology, up to eight FastIron CX switches can be stacked into a single logical switch. This stacked switch has only a single IP address to simplify management. When new members are added to the stack, they automatically inherit the stack's existing configuration file, enabling true plug-and-play network expansion. Organizations can obtain console access to the stack through any of the stack members, eliminating the need to know which member is the primary controller. Throughout the stack, there is 64 Gbps of switching bandwidth, essentially eliminating the need to work around inter-switch bottlenecks.

In today's rapidly growing business environments, organizations need to minimize power consumption throughout the entire IT infrastructure. FastIron CX switches are designed to intelligently manage power usage, extending "green" initiatives to the wiring closet. Power to campus devices is automatically negotiated using the LLDP-MED protocol, providing the powered devices with exactly the amount of power they need. If devices go into sleep mode, they can request less power from the network, minimizing power usage in the campus environment.

FastIron CX switches utilize the Brocade IronWare operating system, providing a rich security suite for Layer 2 and Layer 3 services, Network Access Control (NAC), and Denial of Service (DoS) protection. IronWare security features include protection against TCP SYN and ICMP DoS attacks, Spanning Tree Root Guard and BPDU Guard to protect network spanning tree operations, and broadcast and multicast packet rate limiting.

FastIron CX switches support auto-configuration, simplifying deployment with a truly plug-and-play experience. Organizations can use this feature to automate IP address and feature configuration of the switches without requiring a highly trained network engineer onsite. When the switches power up, they automatically receive an IP address and configuration from DHCP and Trivial File Transport Protocol (TFTP) servers.

Brocade INM provides unified management for the FastIron CX along with the rest of the Brocade Ethernet network. It displays network- and application-level traffic information in graphical detail to greatly simplify network operations, provisioning, troubleshooting, and alarm reporting. As a result, organizations can accurately monitor overall networking operation, identify hot spots, and quickly diagnose and troubleshoot issues before they develop into widespread network problems. In addition, Brocade INM provides multilevel access security on the console and a secure Web-based management interface that keeps out unauthorized users while providing simple and flexible access.
