I am a newbie in brocade world and I need to acquire a Brocade Switch 24 SFP Port but I have already MikroTik S-31DLC20D SFP Modules. Are Brocade Switches compatible with Mikrotik SFP Module?
If not, could I create a link between a Mikrotik Switch SFP port connected to a Brocade Switch.
Thank you in advance for your help.

not sure what you mean with "Brocade Switch 24 SFP Port"
in any case the answer is no. Brocade support only Brocade Genuine SFP

Thank you for your support.
In other words, is there any way I should connect Brocade switch (with Brocade SFP genuine) to a Mikrotik (With S-31DLC20D SFP Module). Are they compatible.

is not clear to me, what Type/Model of Brocade Switch you wnat to connect to this MikroTik SFP, and in what type of switch or whatever you want to insert this MikroTik SFP ?????

I have already deployed Mikrotik Switch with MikroTik S-31DLC20D SFP (1310 nm, 1.25G SFP) to my end point site. I would like to purchase a Brocade Switch 24 SFP ports in the backbone to connect all end point switch to the core of the network (Brocade switch). I wish to know if there is any possibility to make those links running.

I'm not confident with such Mikrotik Switches.
again, ---->>>Brocade Switch 24 SFP
Brocade have a lot of Switch with 24 SFP, if this Mikrotik Plattforms covered the IP Standard, then you should be able to connect to Brocade.
without any EXACT!!! Switch Type/Models ( both, Brocade and Mikrotik ) I'm not able to give you more Info about compatibility.

- From one side Mikrotik CCR1036-8G-2S+ with SFP Transceiver S-31DLC20D Single Mode 1.5G
- From the core network Brocade 300 SAN 24 SFP Port
Which transceiver to choose to make fiber optic link between both switches?

Brocade 300 is a SAN Switch, and not IP.
you cannot connect IP Device to SAN Switches.
you need such a Compatible Switch in order to connect this Mikrotik Switch

It seems Brocade ICX 6650 should be used. But my problem is the compatibility between both switches.
Thank you for you assistance.
