AFAIK, it depending of type of license on PV side.
for that reason, you should post such question on Vendor community

For your information, if you are referring to a brocade 5300 please be aware that this particular switch will go End of Support in August of this year.

I dont think that this is correct answer to this question. Situation that switch will be not in support doesnt mean that its not usable anymore. I saw couple of switches under support of 3rd party after EOL/EOS.

try to ask EMC directly.
In datasheet in array i've found
The FC can connect at either or 8 Gbps and 16 Gbps, however 16 Gbps is recommended NOTE: Only 16 Gbps adapters are supported. See Supported Fibre Channel host bus adapters .
So i guess there is possibility to connect it to 8Gb but you will not get support for that infra.
