is it possible to have a direct ISL between HP B-series 8/12c and Dell M6505 or M5424

If both HP (HP B-series 8/12c)  and Dell (M5424 or M6505) switches have ISL feature licensed, is it possible to interconnect them direclty to have a unique SAN?

Hello Wagner,

 

As Far as I know, both Dell models are Brocade Products, OEMed By Dell.

 

You dont need to licence ISL to normal distance from a Bladecenter Enclosure and a core switch in the same Datacenter (in general less then 2KM )

Hello, someone said it need fabric license within 10KM, and need aditional EF license when long than 10KM,   but somebody ( as, you )  said no license need within 10km .  I`m confused
