Brocade 6510 with 8GB SFP+ GBIC running at 2GB



I've got a 6510 (with 16GB GBIC's) and need to connect a couple of old servers running 2GB. According to the Brocade Fibre Channel Transceiver Support Matrix, the following part:


57-1000117-01/XBR-000163 is compatible with the Brocade 6510.


Can anyone confirm if the XBR-000163 will actually drop down to  2GB and do so in a 6510?

Hi Phil,


this SFP+ can be used in GEN5 switches (also in 6510).

It supports 2,4 and 8G FC speed.

Kind Regards
