Ruckus branded software on Brocade branded ICX 7xxx hardware?

It's such a long story about why, but I have a pair or Brocade ICX 7450-24 switches that were never deployed that I'm just rolling out now. I'd love to update the firmware first, but it appears Ruckus has taken over Brocade. Show version provides, among other things:  SW: Version 08.0.20T213. So that number seems like the software version, and it appears to be a few minor versions behind 2021 versions.

Question is: does anyone know if Ruckus branded software images are compatible with Brocade branded hardware?

Hi Justin,

I am not sure about old hardware that is why i am saying to go with 8030u.

But if you want to upgrade and can certainly try it.

8030 to 8080e non-UFI to 89090j UFI.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hashim

I have a 7450-48P that is about 4 years old that has the brocade logo on it and I am running the latest ruckus software on it. You. May have to upgrade to .60 then .80 before going to .90 and above.

Yes.   If you download the software for the ICX 7450 forum Ruckus, that will run fine on your Brocade ICX 7450.   In fact some of their switches say Ruckus and. To add on the same switch on different stickers

Hope you are doing Great!!!

For the ICXs it is the same Hardware as Brocade but now newer generations,

You should be able to try the latest 8030u code.

Hope this helps.

The person above is correct:

"May have to upgrade to .60 then .80 before going to .90 and above. "

The ICX 7450 supports a UFI image
