    We have SLKWRM 300 brocades (8GB) in our environment and want to purchase 2 new 8GB switches.

    What model 8GB brocade should we buy? The same SLKWRM 300 or is there a newer and/or better 8GB brocade model?

    Thanks!

    kbay,

     

    I would suggest from a point of view of ROI, to buy Brocade 6510

    Other 8Gb Switches excepted Brocade 300 are End of Sales

    Hi kbay,

     

    See the 6505/6510 FAQ doc at the link below for a comparison of the 65xx series and the 300

     

    http://www.brocade.com/forms/getFile?p=documents/faqs/6510-6505-faq.pdf

     

    The 6505 & 6510 support 2, 4, 8, 16 Gbps speeds
