Highlights

Brocade 300 — 24-Port, 8-Gbit/sec Fibre Channel switches for entry and midrange Enterprise SANs

Fast, Reliable 8-Gbit/sec Performance

• Non-blocking and non-oversubscribed platform with a total bandwidth of 408 Gbit/sec in 1U

• 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

• Utilizes extended distance support to enable native Fibre Channel extension greater than 590 km

Affordable Scalability

• Combines up to 24 ports of industry-leading 8-Gbit/sec technology with Ports on Demand scaling from 8 to
   16 to 24 ports, allowing “pay-as-you-grow” scalability

• 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

• Utilizes the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard, which can make SAN configuration a simple 3-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

• Features an easy-to-use, non-blocking and non-oversubscribed platform that is designed to eliminate time wasted on managing ports and cables

Excellent Value for a Variety of SAN Environments

  • Offers dual functionality as a full fabric FC SAN switch or as a Brocade Access Gateway, providing seamless connectivity into any vendor SAN environment
  • Designed to provide a greater than 40 percent power efficiency improvement (Watts/Gbit) over the previous generation of Brocade switches — further reducing power consumption and the overall cooling burden in a data center
