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

    Thank you! It does appear to stay around 56-65°C during the day, with the 65°C being more in the evening. Only now I'm seeing it on speed 2: SSH@10G#show chassis The stack unit 1 chassis info: Power supply 1 (NA - AC - PoE) present, status ok Power supply 2 not present Power supply 3 not...

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

    Thank you for the answer! So if I understood correctly you're using it as Core switch and the APs are connected directly to it rather than to the edge switches, correct?

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

    Replaced the stock fans in the icx6450 with the Noctua NF-A4x20 FLX and the sound is truly amazing now. The rack is nearly silent and there is no annoying alternating sound like with the Foxconn ones. Problem is that despite there being only 2 PoE devices the temperatures are quite high...

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

    Concerning the ipv6 discussion, there is a seller in EU selling a ICX 7450 - 48p with Rev C power supplies (he confirmed that via PM). I'm not sure if I can link to the ebay listing, so just search for feldsam-inc on ebay and you'll find it. Me I sadly can't afford that high of a price so I'll...

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

    Thank you! So you'd recommend getting a icx 7xxx model if we want to have ipv6 working as intended? The only one I can get for an acceptable price is the 7450, but from previous posts it appears to be even more noisy than the 6610.

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

    Thank you for the explanation! Perhaps a stupid question: why is it so late and so overcomplicated in the Enterprise space? My 70€ 2015 Archer had SLAAC fully working in less than a minute, my 2017 500€ Edgerouter Pro took me a week of hitting my head against the wall but eventually I got it...

    How bad is the fan noise?

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

    So to have SLAAC on the ICX 6xxx we'd lose also ipv4 routing on the switch itself?

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

    It doesn't seem to be possible even with SLAAC though: Brocade: interface ve 1 ip address 192.168.2.254 255.255.255.0 ipv6 address some:thing:else:3901::2/64 ipv6 enable ! interface ve 10 ip address 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.0 ip helper-address 1 192.168.10.31 ip helper-address 2...

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

    The ICX 6450 arrived today! A few hours to get it updated, configured in the same way as the 2960S is replacing and installing the licenses (Thank you, @foohdeesha! ) and I swapped it in. The fans will have to be replaced though, the noise is quite high even at idle. Tempted to get the Noctua...

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

    Hi, I'd like to ask the seller of a very cheap icx 6450 to send me more info to confirm that the ethernet ports and the poe of the switch are functioning. What are the first commands you guys run on a new Brocade to verify that everything is fully working?
