The FastIron GS Series access switch family provides enterprise organizations with a flexible and feature-rich solution for building a secure and converged network edge. Upgradeable with 10-Gigabit Ethernet, PoE, and IronStack stacking technology, the FastIron GS Series provides enterprises with the cost and operational benefits of a “pay-as-you-grow” architecture.
The FastIron GS Series delivers the scalability, QoS assurance, resilience, and VoIP-readiness needed to implement a high-value converged solution that can scale to meet future growth at the network edge. An enterprise may initially deploy a standalone FastIron GS switch and later upgrade to IronStack stacking to scale the installation from one to eight stacked units to meet growing user requirements.
With its flexible architecture the FastIron GS Series offers investment protection, while enabling vital network applications and capabilities such as IP telephony, wireless access, WebTV, video surveillance, building management systems, triple play—voice, video and data, and remote video kiosks in a cost-effective and high-performance compact design.
Additionally, the FastIron GS Series may be deployed in metro area networks connecting branch offices with 10-GbE uplinks. In this environment, important features include the Brocade Metro Ring Protocol for building resilient ring-based topologies, VLAN stacking, and advance multicast capabilities including IGMP v1/v2/v3 and MLD v1/v2 snooping for controlling multicast traffic for high-bandwidth content delivery.
The wide range of switch models includes six PoE-ready base models and PoE upgradeable base models. Each switch model includes four combination RJ45/SFP ports supporting uplink aggregation using four Gigabit Ethernet fiber links. See system summary table in this brochure for a complete description of port types and densities for each different model.
