EMC ED-48000B Nears End-of-Support Date
In May 2005, Brocade introduced its then flagship 48000 director, a 4 Gbps director with an eight (8) blade capacity, each blade capable of attaching up to 48 ports, for a total capacity of 384 ports. EMC re-branded the 48K and sold it as the ED-48000B. It was designed by Brocade to compete with McData and Cisco its two main rivals (at the time) in the director space. Back then the EMC ED-48000B (Brocade 48K) was “state of the art”. Now it is a bit old – legacy if you will – and was designated End-of-Life in January 2011 roughly five and one half years after its introduction. Soon, on January 31, 2016, the EMC ED-48000B will reach its End-of-Support date with EMC.
