    Anyone done a Brocade 6610 fan mod?

    Very good overview! What signal generator was used for this? The one linked above? Do you have any pictures of the switch after the modifications?

    Managed 24 port poe+ switch with 4x 10GBase-T

    Brocade ICX-6450-24P should be perfect for you. There's even one for around 150GBP in UK. Grab it before Brexit. Brocade ICX6450-24P 24-Port Gig PoE Switch + 4 X SFP Ports | eBay 6450-24P | eBay

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I am definitely one of those guys. Got the 6450-24 due to the overwhelmingly positive comments in this thread, and later upgraded to the 6610-48P again due to this thread.

    Anyone done a Brocade 6610 fan mod?

    Anyone done a Brocade 6610 fan mod?

    Hi, I doubt that it would work (could be wrong).

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Hi, Might be a long shot, but does anyone know the ECCN and CCATS number for the ICX-6610-48P? My freight forwarder has been unable to get the numbers. Based on what I see online, the ECCN should be: 5A002, but I am unable to find the CCATS number. Edit: OK, this is getting a bit ridiculous...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Just picked up a ICX6610-48P-PE for 359USD including shipping to replace my now mixed assortment of switches. Currently have a ICX-6450-24, an HP 1810-24G and a Mikrotik CRS-309. Might actually end up with more or less the same power consumption...
