Brocade 5300 Switch
  An Industry-Leading Switch for Virtualized Data Centers
Brocade 5300 Switch
The Brocade 5300 is an 8 Gb/s Fibre Channel switch that provides superior performance and port density for the most demanding SAN environments. With up to 80 ports in an efficient 2U design, it is an ideal solution for enabling greater data center consolidation and virtualization throughout the enterprise.
  • Delivers full 8 Gb/s 1:1 performance for up to 80 ports in a single-domain, optimized 2U form factor
  • Offers best-in-class port density and scalability for enterprise SAN switches along with redundant, hot-pluggable components and non-disruptive software upgrades
  • Protects existing device investments with auto-sensing 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s capabilities and native operation with Brocade and Brocade M-Series fabrics
  • Features Ports on Demand capabilities for fast, easy, and cost-effective scalability from 48 to 80 ports in 16-port increments
  • Provides Adaptive Networking services such as Quality of Service (QoS) to help optimize application performance in consolidated, virtual environments
  • Supports Fibre Channel Integrated Routing for selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation for scalability and fault isolation
  • Improves energy efficiency by combining increased bandwidth with lower power consumption
  • Fibre Channel ports
  • 80 ports in 16-port increments through Ports on Demand licenses at 48, 64, and 80 universal (E, F, M, Ex and FL) ports
