Where can I find end of support dates

    Hi,

    I am trying to find end of support dates/roadmaps for a couple of Brocade Switches and struggling to find the information I need.

     

    Where can I find out when Brocade will stop support for the following devices:

    Brocade VDX6730 (I assume not for a long time since it's quite new?)

    Brocade 6510

    This may vary, i.e. :

     

    Brocade 48000 launched 2004, is End of Support at Date February 17, 2016

    antother example

    Brocade 5100 launched 2008, is End of Support at Date June 14, 2018

     

    in summary, most Product are support for a period of 8+ Years.

     

    Keep in mind:

    1) To obtain Support Hardware must be under Active Maintenance Contract.

     

    2) OEM Label Switches Support and Warranty my vary from Brocade Channel Product, in you case please check this with Fujitsu Brocade Product Manager
