Future-Proof Switching at Entry-Level Price

Meet tomorrow’s needs today—even if you don’t know what those needs will be. Use the same standard ports for uplink or stacking, phase in SDN, and expand one switch stack to multiple locations. You can even add more advanced ICX family features with Campus Fabric. And only Brocade lets you manage switches across network layers from a single touchpoint.

Get Stand-Out Performance and Flexibility

Get Stand-Out Performance and Flexibility

Let’s do the math. Eight 10 GbE ports per switch for uplink or stacking. And an industry-leading total of up to 12 switches per stack. The sum? A fast, flexible network access layer that cost-effectively meets your growing and changing needs.

Add Switching Where It's Needed

Add Switching Where It’s Needed

Need more switching throughout your network, but don’t want to increase your management load? No problem. Distribute a single switch stack across your network, connected with standard cabling, and manage the entire stack as a single switch.

Easy SDN Integration

Simplify your Infrastructure and Upgrade with Advanced Features

Combine an ICX 7250 access switch with an ICX 7750 aggregation/core switch in the same management domain and you’ll get centralized control across network layers. And the ICX 7250 switch will inherit the higher-end switch features, including full Layer 3 capabilities.

Power, Power, Anywhere

Power, Power, Anywhere

The Brocade ICX 7250 delivers power through the same cable that carries your data, reducing power adapter and receptacle requirements while increasing wiring flexibility. Plus, an external power supply lets you support the most power-hungry devices through every switch port.

Easy SDN Integration

Easy SDN Integration

The ICX 7250 eases your transition to software networking. A unique hybrid port supports OpenFlow 1.3 and traditional networking flows on the same port at the same time. So you can build tomorrow’s infrastructure without disrupting today’s business.
