    Can somebody answer on question about Dell Brocade 6505?
    I have tried to make a ticket on, but seems I have only guest access and can't make any tickets or get any software for Brocade 6505.

    What is the best and shortest method to check license/ports speed on the switch and how to download the soft in this case?

    088NXW Dell Brocade 6505 (DL-6505-12-8G-0R) comes with 8Gb SFP+ Transceivers.

    If to buy the 12pcs 16Gb SFP+ instead of 8Gb SFP+ it will work or not?

    Due to the manual Dell Brocade 6505 comes already as 16 Gbps switch and supports both types of transceivers.


    In license manual there is information, that Dell Brocade 6505 does not apply the 8G license, so it should come with 16 Gbps by default and there should not be a problem to change transceivers (due to the question above), right?


    Thank you.
