Mcdata Firmware 09.08.01 2

Friends

We are planning to upgrade Firmware of Mcdata switch and we are using EFCM basic edition .

Our switch summery is :

Type Number   : 004700 
Model Number  : 001 
Manufacturer  : MCD 
Serial Number : 131438P 
EC Level      : 1070328 
  
Firmware Level: 09.08.01 2

Please suggest which will be the next firmware level from here?
Does it require sequential update path from 1 version to the next like we do in brocade switch ?

Please also let me know where i can download Mcdata firmware from ?

You can Upgrade in One step from 9.8.x to 9.9.x

Last rel. is 9.9.9

FW Download is here available if you have Active Maintenance Contract, or see by OEM i.e. HP, or EMC  for Firmware Download.
