Brocade ICX IP switches are the foundation for connectivity in IP storage networks. They are designed for a wide range of EMC environments — enabling a low TCO and fast ROI. Brocade's data center switches provide a complete portfolio for EMC’s Data Center IP storage connectivity solutions. Models include the ICX 6430, 7250, 7450 and 7750 switches; offering enterprise functionality and stackable switching at an entry-level price. The Brocade 5600 virtual router offers networking functions like routing, firewall and VPN in software.

The Brocade virtual Traffic Manager (vTM) offers virtual Application Delivery Controller capabilities for software based network traffic management (IP Load Balancing, SSL Offload, Security, etc.).

The Brocade Analytics Monitoring Platform (AMP) allows deep Fibre Channel network monitoring. It non-disruptively attaches to Brocade and EMC 16Gb FC platforms.
