DCX-8 EOL

I saw a post sometime ago saying the older DCX-4 and DCX-8 units had been EOL is this correct and is there an EOL letter. Also FC4 and FC8 ports have been EOL is that correct?

Re: DCX-8 EOL

First generation of DCX, are since 2009 EOL, this included:

DCX-2000 ICL kit, DCX-1101, DCX-1102, DCX-1148, DCX-0101, DCX-0102, and DCX-0148 blades.

For this Parts Brocade announced End of Support for end 2014.

For the Second DCX Generation any EOL announcement is unknow to me, and exactly the opposite, i know a Customer he get shortly a delivery of more DCX.

--->>>Also FC4...

FC4-xx Blade are 48000 Blade and not DCX Blade ,this are since February 28, 2012 EOL.

Last Time Order (LTO) final, non-cancelable, non-returnable orders due date is Tomorrow September 28, 2012.

NOTE:

TO AVOID CONFUSION, ANSWER ARE RELATED TO DCX AND DCX-4S

AND NOT REFER NEW DCX-8510-X GENERATION.

is very simple, first generation are the Blade listed in my preview post.

Those Blade are replaced with:

BR-DCX-1000 (2x BR-DCX-1000 is equivalent to 1xBR-DCX-2000)

BR-DCX-2101 FC8-16Port Blade 16Ports,16x 8G SWL SFPs

BR-DCX-2102 FC8-32Port Blade 32 Ports,32x 8G SWL SFPs

BR-DCX-2148 FC8-48 Port Blade 48 Ports,48x 8G SWL SFPs

BR-DCX-2101 FC8-16Port Blade 16Ports,16x 8G SWL SFPs

BR-DCX-2102 FC8-32Port Blade 32 Ports,32x 8G SWL SFPs

BR-DCX-2148 FC8-48 Port Blade 48 Ports,48x 8G SWL SFPs

If you have a doubt, please ask you OEM or Brocade Local Rapresentative.
