Simple and Elegant Scalability
Increase Productivity
Enhanced Operational Stability

The Brocade G630 enterprise class switch delivers industry leading port density with 128 Fibre Channel ports in an elegant 2U form factor. Built to support maximum flexibility and dense Fibre Channel fabrics, it offers cost-effective pay-as-you-grow scalability, expanding from 48 to 128 ports with Ports on Demand (PoD). To support higher data volumes over long distance, the switch delivers in-flight encryption and data compression to optimize bandwidth and minimize the risk of unauthorized access.

With simple and open automation IT organizations can significantly improve their efficiency and dramatically decrease the risk of operational mistakes for repetitive daily management tasks. Automation in large-scale IT environments integrates diverse infrastructure components with consistency and predictability to deliver greater operational efficiency and agility.

The Brocade G630 with Brocade Fabric Vision® technology delivers a breakthrough hardware and software solution that helps simplify monitoring, increase operational stability, and dramatically reduce costs. This technology includes IO Insight and VM Insight, which provides organizations with deeper visibility into both SCSI and NVMe traffic.

Tech Specs

Fibre Channel performance Fibre Channel: 4.25 Gbit/s line speed, full duplex; 8.5 Gbit/s line speed, full duplex; 10.53 Gbit/s line speed, full duplex; 14.025 Gbit/s line speed, full duplex; 28.05 Gbit/s, full duplex; 112.2 Gbit/s, full duplex; auto-sensing of 4/8/10/16/32 Gbit/s port speeds and capable of supporting 128 Gbit/s speeds; 10 Gbit/s optionally programmable to fixed port speed. Auto-sensing of 4×32 / 4×16 / 4×8 / 4×4 Gbit/s speeds on the QSFP ports with Brocade FOS v8.2.0.
Fibre Channel ports 96 SFP+ ports capable of operating at 4/8/10/16/32 Gbit/s Fibre Channel auto-sensing speeds;
8 QSFP ports capable of operating at 4×32 / 4×16 / 4×8 / 4×4 Gbit/s Fibre Channel speeds.
Offers a base configuration of 48 ports, two 24-port SFP+ PoD (Ports on Demand), and one 32-port QSFP PoD. The switch has a total of eight 32 Gbit/s QSPF ports. This allows users to grow from 48 ports to 128 ports. Supports F/E/EX_Port and D_Port types on the SFP+ ports and only F/E/EX_Port and D_Port types on the QSFP ports with Brocade Fabric OS® (FOS) v8.2.0.
Maximum Fibre Channel frame size Latency for locally switched ports is 780 ns (including FEC); compression is 1 ms per node
Scalability Full-fabric architecture with a maximum of 239 switches
Certified maximum Single fabric: 56 domains, 7 hops
MPR fabric: 19 hops
ISL trunking Frame-based trunking with up to eight 32 Gbit/s connections between a pair of switches combined to form a single logical ISL with a speed of up to 256 Gbit/s (512 Gbit/s full duplex) per ISL trunk. Exchange-based load balancing across ISLs with DPS included in Brocade FOS. On the QSFP ports 256 Gbit/s trunks are supported by trunking 2× (4×32 Gbit/s) QSFP ports.
Aggregate bandwidth 4 Tbit/s
Maximum frame size 2,112-byte payload
Frame buffers 15K frame buffers with dynamic buffer sharing capability across ports
Classes of service Class 2, Class 3, Class F (inter-switch frames)
Port types D_Port (ClearLink Diagnostic Port), E_Port, EX_Port, F_Port, AE_Port, optional port-type control
Data traffic types Fabric switches supporting unicast
Media types Hot-pluggable, industry-standard Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+), LC connector; Short-Wave Laser (SWL), Long-Wave Laser (LWL); Extended Long-Wave Laser (ELWL); distance depends on fiber optic cable and port speed. Supports SFP+ (32/16/8 Gbit/s), SFP+ (16/8/4 Gbit/s), SFP+ 10 Gbit/s optical transceivers, 4×32 Gbit/s QSFP SWL and 4×16 Gbit/s QSFP SWL optical transceivers. Note: 32 Gbit/s ELWL is currently not supported with Brocade FOS v8.2.0 but is planned for future support.
