In the core of the data center, network operators need to be able to respond in real time to dynamic business needs by delivering applications and services on demand. At the same time, they must contain costs through more efficient resource utilization and simpler infrastructure design.
The Brocade MLX half-slot 4-port 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) module for Brocade MLXe Core routers delivers high density and performance with 128 40 GbE ports in a single chassis. Based on Brocade VersaScale-160 packet processors, this module provides flexibility to add software features without compromising wire-speed performance. With support for OpenFlow, up to 524,288 IPv4 or 131,072 IPv6 routes in the forwarding information base (FIB), 1,048,576 MPLS labels, and wire-speed throughput with layer 2, IPv4/IPv6, MPLS, and virtual private network (VPN) services, the Brocade MLX 4-port 40 GbE module delivers leading density and performance to the service provider and large enterprise networks.
