An Integrated Platform for 
Enterprise Consolidation and 
Business Continuity 
Many of today’s IT organizations have
implemented multiple Storage Area Network
(SAN) islands to support specific applications, 
projects, and sites throughout their enterprises.
With the Brocade
7500 SAN Router, these
organizations can now interconnect their
SAN islands for greater resource utilization
and long-distance extension. By providing
this advanced level of connectivity without
the associated risk and complexity of
physically merging SAN islands into a single
large fabric, the Brocade 7500 supports
strategic business initiatives such as
disaster recovery, data migration, and
ongoing technology upgrades.
The Brocade 7500 combines the industry’s
first 4 Gbit/sec Fibre Channel routing 
capability with powerful hardware-assisted
traffic forwarding for Fibre Channel over 
IP (FCIP). The switch features 16 Fibre
Channel ports and two 1 Gigabit Ethernet 
ports—delivering high performance to run
storage applications at line-rate speed with
either protocol. By integrating these services
in a single platform, the Brocade 7500
offers a wide range of benefits for inter-SAN 
connectivity, including long-distance SAN
extension, greater resource sharing (either
locally or across geographical areas), and
simplified management.
