No you should not require a different licence the Brocade 300 is a 8GB FC switch although I do recommend checking the approved SFP list from Brocade.

I have an older HP server that required 1GB SFP's and I figured that I could use the 4GB SFP's from my Brocade 200E and nope they did not work.  Verify the compatibility list first to eliminate issues.
