Suggestions on how to add our 48000 to our existing environment

Hello all, this is my first post. Let me give you a run down of our environment. We have a 2-node IBM SVCconnected to one IBM SAN140M with A DS8100, DS4500,DS4700, DS4800, and a DS4100. All adding up to arounf 56TB.

We bought a Brocade 48000 with two FC4-32 port blade. We can't really add the switch the way I would like because that would be way to much down time and work to change all of our host zone. I was thinking about using it as an Edge switch, but if I did that I was wondering how the zoning would work Or would I even need to zone? How many ports should I use so I wouldn't affect the traffic that is using the switch. I know i would probably use one blade each HBA for each host.

If you have other suggestions or questions let me know thanksfor the help
