Brocade 48000 EOL and Blades (fc4-32 and fc8-48)

Greetings,

I'm aware of the EOL notice governing the Brocade 48K.

My question is what is the EOL for blades themselves?  Specifically, fc4-32 and fc8-48)?

Thanks in advance!

For Brocade 48000 Director
• EOL Notification Date November 15th, 2010
• End of Support (EOS) Date February 17th, 2016

I'll check about FC4 and FC8 Blade

Why do you expect that the FC8-48 is EOL in the near future?

I would assume that FC4-48 is more earlier EOL.

Is it just a double typo?

As far as I know, FC port blades will go EOSL when the chassis they're installed in goes EOSL; there is not an specific EOSL date for each port blade.
