    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Yup, PM sent. I thought this needed a firmware unlock, originally. Thanks!

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    Well crap. I got some AT24C164's to use to unlock my ICX6610, but upon opening it up it appears there's no place to install the EEPROM. How do I unlock the ICX6610 so I can use the 10 gbit ports? It looks like I may have incorrectly assumed this applied to the ICX6610 as well: EEPROM Unlocks -...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    OK, so it's just the reverse of what's up front. I think I understand. I have a breakout cable. Now I need to figure out how to unlock 10Gbit speeds.

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    How does that work? I plug a 40 Gbps cable and it runs at 10g? or there are 4x10 Gbps connections?

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I recently acquired one of these switches (ICX6610), but can only get two of the four QSFP+ ports on the back to work at all. They work at 40 gbits. I can get one of my QSFP+ cards to connect to one of the SFP+, but they only work at 1 gbit. What do I need to do to either make the the other two...

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    Hmm, I think I'll also get one of these and convert it over. My 40gbit network needs to expand by 3, so now I'm at 7 devices.

    What would the downside of doing that be?

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    10 G is fine for the other two PCs for my needs actually, but could those 10G ports be bonded?

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    Oh, so two would be 10 gbit and two 40 gbit?

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    Oh nice! I just ordered that Brocade. The SFPP and RJ45 ports will work quite well with what I have planned. Thanks!! My location is USA, and my budget is a few hundred dollars, but this switch looks like exactly what I need right now.

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    Ahh, I see. My bad. Thanks! I'll take a look. Do you know any you can easily point me to? I think I'll avoid trying to do something like that. I need 4 or 5 QSFP ports, but yeah, something simple that doesn't cost an arm and a leg would be great. I'll look into it more, are there any can can...

    Beware of EMC switches sold as Mellanox SX6XXX on eBay

    Oh! Is this the one I want to accomplish my goals then? I skipped over this one because it says: THIS MALLANOX SX6036 switch DOES NOT HAVE an Ethernet L2 L3 + Gateway license ON IT. I believe this thread is about how to fix that, though. All the networking terms are a bit confusing to me, but...
