The Brocade 5000 combines scalability with superior investment protection. It features a flexible design that supports native E_Port interoperability for connectivity into Brocade Fabric OS (FOS) or M-Enterprise OS (M-EOS) environments, while allowing organizations to non-disruptively expand their existing SAN fabrics.


The Brocade 5000 is fully compatible with Brocade 1, 2, and 4 Gbit/sec devices, including the Brocade DCX Backbone, protecting existing technological assets while providing a strategic solution for the future. The Brocade 5000 is available in configurations of 16, 24, or 32 ports in an efficient 1U design. It also provides high performance for midrange SAN switches.


Some features and benefits of the Brocade 5000 include delivery of up to 32 ports in an optimized form factor that does not require a rail kit for deployment in a 19-inch rack, protection of existing investments; power and cooling efficiency to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and improve availability; utilization of Brocade EFCM 9.x and Brocade Fabric Manager for easy deployment within new and existing fabrics; and Ports on Demand capabilities for fast, easy, and cost-effective scalability from 16 to 32 ports in 8-port increments. The Brocade 5000 also provides protection to existing device investments, meets high-availability requirements with hot-pluggable components and software upgrades, and utilizes the Brocade EZSwitchSetup wizard, which simplifies installation and management.
