Re: Brocade switch with 80 ports

Hi Raju,

the B5300 has 80 FC-Ports.

Please check before upgrading if the available BB-Credits are enough for you. B5300 has less BB-Credits then B5100.

If you are not using Long-Distance connections, the B5300 should be the correct switch for you.



Kind Regards
