    The first and last 6 ports can both be ethernet and fibre channel SFP+. The rest are ethernet only - so for your use-case it doesn't make any difference.

    so i can put 48x sfp+ 10g optics in my ports and use whole 48 x 10gb ports with no worry, right?

    Correct, you can utilize all 48 ports for 10G SFP+ transceivers 🙂
