can i connect G620 QSFP to X6-4B core blade

we have new bought G620 and X6-4, can we connect QSFP of G620 to X6-4 core blade?

 

from Brocade documenation, X6-4 core blade only support X6-4 interconnect or x6-4 and 8510, it doesn't mention G620 switches.

No, this is not supported.

 

Howerver I've submitted to Brocade months ago a RFE for exact what you ask.

thanks, Antonio,  so the only option is to use switch FC ports of both G620b and X6-4b to create ISL for uplink?

unfortunately yes, this is at the moment the only traditional options to use ISL/Trunking

 

as saied, I've submited a concept to Brocade how such a features can be realized, is not simple....

 

I'll try to push and post here as soon I get any feedback from PM or Developer Team.

 

Stay Tuned!
