Brocade DCX product on the way?

Mysterious DCX-4S tested in Germany

A Brocade product called a DCX-4S has been tested and awarded a GS-Mark by TÜV Rheinland Product Safety, an authorised institution in Germany for testing product safety and quality. What is it?

A search on Brocade's website reveals nothing. The DCX is Brocade's data centre backbone switch which was launched a year ago, give or take a few days.

Jacques Maleval thinks it is a new director switch and will be launched before the end of the month. The TÜV Rheinland certificate, number 72081999, describes it as a Fibre Channel Director.

Brocade was unable to comment at the time of going to press. ®
