HP Fiber Channel Product Names vs. Brocade Product Names – Switch Types

In some situations, it can come in handy to know the type of switch. However executing a switchshow command does not give you the information you need. In fact, it does only provide you with the switch type number. By using the table below, you should be able to link the switch type to the Brocade and HP Product Name.
