It should work okay as long as it is dedicated to iSCSI traffic.

Dedicate NICs to iSCSI (either initiator or target) and only connect those dedicated NICs to that switch. And don't connect that switch to other switches that carry other traffic. All other services, including cluster services, should be bound to other NICs and those NICs should go through different switches.
