Brocade MLX Series routers feature industry-leading 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 10 GbE, and 1 GbE wire-speed density; rich IPv4, IPv6, Multi-VRF, MPLS, and Carrier Ethernet capabilities without compromising performance; and advanced Layer 2 switching.
Built upon Brocade’s sixth-generation architecture and terabit-scale switch fabrics, the Brocade MLX Series has a proven heritage with more than 9000 routers deployed worldwide. Internet Service Providers (ISPs), transit networks, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), hosting providers, and Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) rely on these routers to meet skyrocketing traffic requirements and reduce the cost per bit. By leveraging the Brocade MLX Series, mission-critical data centers can support more traffic, achieve greater virtualization, and provide cloud services using less infrastructure—thereby simplifying operations and reducing costs. Moreover, the Brocade MLX Series can reduce complexity in large campus networks by collapsing core and aggregation layers, as well as providing connectivity between sites using MPLS/VPLS.
The Brocade MLX Series includes existing Brocade MLX Routers with up to 7.68 Tbps of routing capacity, and the new Brocade MLXe Routers with up to 15.36 Tbps of routing capacity, an astounding 4.8 billion pps routing performance, and data center-efficient rear exhaust for all chassis types. Both models are available in 4-, 8-, 16-, and 32-slot chassis and deliver up to 256 10 GbE, 1536 1 GbE, 64 OC-192, or 256 OC-48 ports in a single system.
A new 2-port 100 GbE module will provide wire-speed connectivity over both ports in the Brocade MLXe, wire-speed connectivity over a single port in Brocade MLX Routers using the cost-saving Ports on Demand feature, and enable the industry’s first multiterabit trunks. Brocade MLX and Brocade NetIron XMR modules can be utilized in the new Brocade MLXe model chassis, protecting network investments. All of the Brocade MLX Series routers help reduce power and cooling costs with the lowest power consumption and heat dissipation in their class.
Designed for non-stop networking, the Brocade MLX Series features Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT), which provides more than 30 Tbps of dual-chassis bandwidth, full active/active routing links, and uninterrupted traffic flow in the event of node failover. Organizations can achieve high resiliency through fully redundant switch fabrics, management modules, power supplies, and cooling systems. And to further ensure network and application availability, the Brocade IronWare operating system features hitless management failover and software upgrades.
