IBM Flex FC5022 mix 8Gb and 16Gb SFP's?

[ Edited ]

Hi 

 

We have an IBM Flex (a later model) with 2x FC5022 16GB fibre channel switches - we have some 8Gb transceivers - can we have a mix of 8Gb and 16Gb transceivers running on the same switches?  Is it supported?

 

Thanks

All 16Gb Plattforms support both 8 and 16G SFP+
