UCS 2.0 and Port Channels

I came across this interesting article today around the new capabilities of UCS 2.0. It’s a shame that it seems to indicate the requirement for the new 6248 fabric interconnect, and 2208 fabric extenders in the chassis, to take advantage of the “Port Channel to the blade” capabilities it talks about though. Does this really require the next gen 40GE hardware, or can it be used with existing UCS 1.x hardware too, simply by upgrading the firmware? Answers on a postcard people!
