Highlights

The Brocade 5300 is an 80-port, 8-Gbit/sec Fibre Channel switch for entry and midrange enterprise storage area networks (SANs).

Fast, Reliable 8-Gbit/sec Performance

  • Non-blocking and non-oversubscribed platform with a total bandwidth of 1360 Gbit/sec 
  • Designed to increase network performance with enhanced Brocade Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking, which allows up to eight ports (at 2, 4 or 8 Gbit/sec speeds) between a pair of switches to be combined to form a single, logical ISL with a speed up to 64 Gbit/sec
  • Offers Adaptive Networking services, including Adaptive fabric quality of service (QoS), traffic isolation and ingress rate limiting, enabling organizations to maintain optimized application performance in virtual environments

Affordable Scalability

  • Combines up to 80 ports of industry-leading, 8-Gbit/sec technology with Ports on Demand scaling from 48 to 64 to 80 ports, allowing “pay-as-you-grow” scalability
  • Provides integrated, per-port routing for increased scalability, interoperability and fault isolation
  • Helps protect existing investments by providing 8-Gbit/sec technology with auto-sensing capabilities to also recognize 1, 2,and 4-Gbit/sec devices
  • Designed to future-proof investments by allowing organizations to use 4-Gbit/sec small form-factor pluggables (SFPs) today and upgrade to 8-Gbit/sec SFPs when required

Simple Deployment and Management

  • Delivers 80 ports in a single domain, 2U package, helping to maximize port density while simplifying management
  • Utilizes the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard, making SAN configuration a simple three-step point-and-click task
  • Includes a USB port that can increase serviceability and error logging by facilitating firmware upgrades and downloads of system log files
  • Meets high-availability requirements with redundant, hot-pluggable components, nondisruptive software upgrades and hot code activation for a wide range of SAN configurations
  • Employs familiar Brocade software and management interfaces, including Brocade EFCM and Brocade Fabric Manager, simplifying management and reducing training costs

Excellent Value for a Variety of SAN Environments

  • Designed to provide a greater than 40 percent power efficiency improvement (watts/Gbit) over the previous generation of Brocade switches, further helping to reduce power consumption and the overall cooling burden in a data center
  • Includes a USB port that helps provide increased serviceability and error logging functionality by facilitating easy firmware upgrades and downloads of system log files
  • Offers Top Talkers, which monitors resources and can assist in finding hot spots to help increase resource utilization
  • Utilizes ISL Trunking and dynamic path selection, traffic can be distributed across ISLs in the SAN, which helps to increase utilization of the SAN and reduce costs
