Buying POD licenses without bundled transceivers?

I'm looking to upgrade my Brocade 300 switch with more ports than the initial 8, with should just require buying one or more 8-port POD licenses. I think an 8-port POD license is part number XBR-SMEDPOD8-01, but I think that includes 8-port transceivers. If I already have transceivers in spare to use, can I get the POD license without the transceivers, which I hope would be cheaper. If so, what would the part number be?


I think the switch is rated for 8Gb operation. Do transceivers have a speed rating or can I use any in the switch?
