FWS4802 Upgrade beginner question


I'm new to the Foundry/Brocade family and have recently aquired a FWS4802. It seems to have basic layer 3 capabilities and I'm wondering if this can be upgraded to a full layer 3 switch. I was able to find some links online that point to an upgrade called FWS4802-UP. I'm just wondering how to confirm that this is what I need.

This is the output from me performing a "show ver". I'd appreciate any help that people would be willing to provide.

You can not Download Firmware for Brocade or Brocade / Foundry Products withuot a active Maintenance Contract.

Ask you Reseller or Local SE about that.
