Product Migration Options

Customers are encouraged to migrate to the new Cisco MDS 9148 Multilayer Fabric Switch, which has more scalability (16 to 48 ports in 8-port increments), higher density, and increased line-rate performance. Note that the 8-Gbps ports on the Cisco MDS 9148 effectively replace the 10-Gbps ISL ports on the MDS 9134. Each of the ports on the Cisco MDS 9148 can have either 4-Gbps Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) optics or 8-Gbps SFP+ optics installed. MDS 9148 product and license part numbers that include bundled optics are available with either 4-Gbps SFP or 8-Gbps SFP+ optics. See the Cisco MDS 9148 product data sheet for a comprehensive list of available part numbers for ordering: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/ps4159/ps6409/ps5987/ps10703/data_sheet_c78-571411.html.
