We manage a network with Brocade equipment as describe in the subject and need to know how long is the lifetime of those equipment. There are some technical information about this issue. Could somebody help me please. Thanks in advance for the help.

Minimum lifetime is around 5 years.
But be aware that:
- BigIron RX is already EoS/EoL
- FastIron SX800 Gen3 last software with new features is 8.0.30, lastest 8.0.40 code is not released for this platform. So you can simply start couting this box also as dead in near future. Probably we will see EoS/EoL soon same like for FCX platform.
MLXe is stable platform, just ensure you have MR2 cards and not Gen1.0 LCs (not supported >= NI 5.7)
