We want to life-cycle and move to Gen6. X6 Directors and G620 would be involved. Not found at datasheet or in this forum, is ISL encryption supportet ?
Thanks and regards

is this still true ? What are the plans, we need it for next year ...
Gen 6 switches and blades support up to four ports with compression at any line speed. ISL encryption is not currently supported on Gen 6 devices.

please update the docs ....
It seems it is supportet
Q. What are the benefits of in-flight compression over Inter-Switch Links (ISLs) for Brocade G620?
A. In-flight compression optimizes network performance within the data center and over long-distance links. Data is compressed at the source and uncompressed at the destination. Performance varies by data type, but Brocade uses an efficient algorithm to generally achieve 2:1 compression with minimal impact on performance. Compression can be used in conjunction with in-flight encryption.

the doc you are refering to is talking about compression which has always been supported with Gen6.
Encryption is supported on the x6 director starting FOS 8.1.0 and for the G620 switch it is planned for FOS 8.2.0 in Nov/Dec 17 timeframe I think.
