Title: Brocade FastIron Edge X624 and BigIron RX-4 Functionality Certification and Cooperative Interoperability Evaluation

Publication date:   14 April 2010
Document number:    210106


Brocade commissioned Tolly to evaluate two of its enterprise-class LAN switches for interoperability with other switch brands.

Tolly engineers subjected the FastIron Edge X624 and BigIron RX-4 switches to more than a dozen tests with switches from 3Com, Cisco Systems, Enterasys Networks, Force10 Networks, Hewlett-Packard Co, IBM Corporation, and NEC Corporation. Engineers tested 20 switches from eight vendors to determine the various levels of interoperability offered.

Brocade switches demonstrated a broad level of interoperability with 18 other switches from seven other leading vendors for advanced LAN and routing functions at Layer 2 and Layer 3.

This testing was done in accordance with Tolly Common Test Plan #1088 - LAN Switch Interoperability. That document is available for license and you can find more information about it on the Tolly Common Test Plan website.
