The Brocade BigIron RX series of switches provides the 2.2-billion packet-per-second offerings that scale cost-effectively from the enterprise edge to the core with hardware-based IP routing to 512,000 IP routes per line module. The high availability design features redundant and hot-pluggable hardware, hitless software upgrades, and graceful BGP and OSPF restart.

The BigIron RX series of Layer 2/3 Ethernet switches excels in all of these areas, enabling network designers to deploy an Ethernet infrastructure that addresses requirements with a scalable and future-ready architecture that will support network growth and evolution for years to come. BigIron RX series incorporates the latest advances in switch architecture, system resilience, quality of service and switch security in a family of modular chassis setting leading industry benchmarks for price performance, scalability and TCO.

The BigIron RX series allows network designers to standardize on a single product family for aggregation and backbone switching. The BigIron RX series, with its high-density and compact design, is an ideal IP solution for data mining and high-performance computing environments, and Internet Exchanges and Internet Service Providers (IXPs and ISPs) where non-blocking, high density Ethernet switches are needed.

At the heart of the BigIron RX architecture is an adaptive self-routing Clos switch fabric with a virtual output queue (VOQ) design. This non-blocking architecture is optimized for maximum throughput and low latency for all size packets. This advanced and scalable design ensures the reliable deliver of all IP-based voice, video and data applications. The BigIron RX series enables a user to deploy a reliable, secure and scalable networking solution.
