Re: VDX 6720-40 licence purchase option

Hello,

You have 40 ports that can be used.

 

If you need more than 40 you can buy additional licences.  Each licence will enable a further 10 ports.

 

Extreme Networks has recently acquired Brocade's Data Centre IP products which includes VDX, so you would need to contact an Extreme Networks sales rep or partner that sells Extreme Networks gear.

 

Regards

Steve
