The Brocade FastIron LS series access switch family provides enterprise organizations with a flexible and feature-rich solution for building a secure, high-value, intelligent network edge. Upgradeable with 10-gigabit Ethernet, and IronStack stacking technology, the FastIron LS series gives enterprises the cost and operational benefits of a "pay-as-you-grow" architecture.
The FastIron LS series delivers the scalability, QoS assurance, feature richness and advanced security needed to implement an intelligent high-value solution that can scale to meet future growth at the network edge. An enterprise may initially deploy a standalone FastIron LS switch and later upgrade to IronStack stacking to scale the installation from one to eight stacked units to meet growing user requirements.
The FastIron LS series is designed to conserve space and power. Their one rack unit height and shallow depth allow them to be installed in cabinets in which larger systems cannot be supported.
Additionally, the FastIron LS 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 advanced multicast capabilities including IGMPv1/v2/v3 and MLD v1/v2 snooping for controlling multicast traffic for high-bandwidth content delivery.
