Costs for 8 Port expansion 200e

How much should I expect to pay for opening the remainder 8 ports on my 200E FOS Switch?

1) you post question in wrong forum

2) brocade 200E is end of sales, and optional license are not longer available.

most economy, you looking for a used brocade 200E with all licensed port.

Greetings amarino & TechHelp24.  First, I moved this thread to the correct location.  Second, there is one slight correction.  Yes this switch is very much EOS, but you can still buy a POD license for this switch (either with or without SFPs).  Here are the brocade part numbers: 

BR-SMED4POD-01POD,4-Port Activation for Mid-Range Switches, 0 SFPs
XBR-SMED4POD-0001POD,4-Port Activation for Mid-Range Switches, 4 SFPs

Now depending on who you go through for procurement, I'll leave that to them for quoting.
