Brocade ICX 7750 switches form the campus network core at the new Fujitsu GDC offering 96 wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports per switch and the capability to integrate up to a dozen switches into a high-performance stack. The stack can be managed as a single device delivering up to 5.76 Tbps of aggregated stacking bandwidth. This high level of performance scalability and port density has allowed Fujitsu to dedicate eight 10 GbE links to each of the Brocade ICX 7250 stackable switches which provide wire-speed 1 GbE network access with power-over-Ethernet to support IP phones Wi-Fi access points and other devices. By adding switches to the Brocade ICX 7750 stack Fujitsu will be able to easily accommodate a 1000-seat expansion to the GDC during the coming year.
In addition to the campus network infrastructure Fujitsu has also deployed Brocade VDX 6740 switches in the GDC data center. The switches form a high-performance low-latency 10 GbE fabric that is both self-forming and self-healing and offers ideal performance characteristics for virtualized data center operations. All the Brocade switches at the Fujitsu GDC fully support the OpenFlow SDN protocol enabling the IT staff to programmatically reconfigure both physical and virtual networks on-the-fly to meet the diverse IT requirements of simultaneous client development projects.
