DCX-8510-4 can be fit with a Total 4 Port Blade.
16,32,48 and 64 Port Blade are supported.
Application Blade have different port count.
As per example, if you use 4x 64 Port Blade, then you have 256 Port

So if we go with 64port, we need to change all our Fiber cables as well? To retain the existing cabling better to go with 48 port right? In this case we will get 192 ports. What you suggest?

if you have a infrastructure with a optical panel, the you need just to replace Patch Cable from Optical Panel to the Switch.
otherwise you must replace the cabling or crimp new Plug.
--->>>> In this case we will get 192 ports. What you suggest?
I can suggest nothing, all depend of many Port you really need in the Datacenter.
Alternative is DCX-8510-8, you can expand till 8x Blade with 48 Port.
