Re: CWDM/DWDM in Brocade 6510

ssh-storage the FOS 7 compatibility matrix is the latest hardware compatibility matrix. It is specific to FOS version 7 qualification. The 6510 / DCX8510 products are qualified with the SmartOptics SFP's listed on PDF page 32.

I must be missing something. I see the list for SmartOptics there, but it only contains MUX equipment and active WDM.

The tranceivers SO-SFP-8GFC...etc... aren't there?

SmartOptics parts are being validated and should be qualified in the June 2013 timeframe

Too bad that's too late. I'm already supposed to have come up with a design. Stretching it as it is.

Re: CWDM/DWDM in Brocade 6510

Right now i'm very much tempted to use a Brocade DCX-4S on either side, or Brocade 5300's.

Then i can use the 8 Gb CWDM SFP+MUX kit from SmartOptics. I really want that 8 Gb per colour.

At least that's a supported combination AFAICT.

Anything that might prevent me from using such a combo?

The DCX-4S and or 5300 solution will work. I've used this a number of times.
