FC8-32 limitations using 4G 30Km SFPs?

Hi All,

I have a customer with Brocade DCX-8510-8 and FC8-32 blades. He needs to use 4G 30Km SFPs.
Just wanted to confirm
a.       if there are any limitations regarding this?
b.      can all the ports on the FC8-32 be populated in the situation or do some ports need to be kept empty due to buffer to buffer credits for the long range ports?

c. Please let me know where can i find the ports mappings to ASICs

Best regards,

Fadi Saadeh

Hi TechHelp24,

I guess you are right, i got lost with translating the box from EMC partnumbers to Brocade.

Its not DCX-8510. its DCX 8 slots.
