what is the replacement/upgrade model for BROCADE 7500?

I am investigating a hardware refresh of all our Brocade switches and need to know the new Brocade model that would replace the Brocade 7500. I require the capability to configure LSANs.

Hi,

 

for FC-FC-Routing (LSAN-Zones) you do not need 7500 or 7800 or 7840. 7500 is for using FCIP.

So if you want to use FC-FC-Routing via FCIP, then you have to use 7800 or 7840. But they are not compatible to 7500.

So you have to exchange both ends of the FCIP Link.

 

 

Kind Regards
Ralf
