I purchased on "old" 6450-48P for my home lab, but still a bit in doubt on the license and port capabilities..
My boot screen shows 2 of the SFP ports are disabled due to the lack of a license, but it doesn't state if the other 2 are 10Gb or 1Gb ports.. and then there is the Unit 2 that states a 4 port 40G module..
if it requires licenses, how would I be able to get one or a demo one.. ?

Q.: Do Brocade ICX 6430 and 6450 Switches come standard with 10 GbE ports?
A Brocade ICX 6450 models (except the Brocade ICX 6450-C) have four dual-mode 1 /10 GbE SFP+ ports for stacking and uplinking. The default configuration provides two 10 GbE and two 1 GbE ports. A license (ICX6450-2X10G-LIC-POD) to upgrade the 1 GbE ports to 10 GbE speed is available and provides four 10 GbE ports per Brocade ICX 6450 Switch. Brocade ICX 6430 models have four 1 GbE SFP ports for stacking and uplinking. The Brocade ICX 6430-C and 6450-C models have two 100 Mbps/1 GbE SFP ports and two 100 Mbps/1 GbE copper ports for uplinks.
