Nexus 5596UP with N55-M16UP

Hello all,

Cisco documentation states that:

The Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch has three slots that can be used for the following optional expansion modules:

16-port Universal (Fibre Channel and Ethernet) GEM (N55-M16UP) that provides 8-, 4-, 2-, or 1-Gbps Fibre Channel and 1- or 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports

Is it possible to have one port doing Fiber and other doing ethernet, in the same module? If I have 80 ports and if I want Fiber in all of then do I need to order any license?

Regards,

Joao.

Yes, with the 16-port universal module, you can use it for Ethernet, FCOE and Fiber Channel.  For Ethernet and FCOE, you use the same optics, and for FC you use different optic. You would need FC license.
