HPE SN3000B 16G SAN Switches compatibility with 8G connection

I've 2 new HPE SN3000B SAN Switches with 48 16G SFP+ adapter installed. I have a backup server with 8G FC connection to the previous SAN Switch need to be connected to this new SAN Switches. The server are only able to support 8G FC HBA cards. If I connect the backup server to the 16G SFP+ port would it able to work?

Yes it will work.

The 16GB SFP can connect to 16/8/4 GB.
