B300E switches and the best devices to do FC over IP to a DR-Site.

We have several Brocade B300E switches setup in a Small Fabric.  I have been asked to research what is the best way  to do FC over IP to a DR-Site. I am told there is a set of McData Eclipse 1620 available. What is the best way or devices to do this?

McDATA, both, 1620 and 2640 are End of Life and End of Support, and cannot participate in a Fabric with Brocade Platforms since FOS 6.3.0

If you want to use FCIP, must switch to new Plattform's Brocade 7800.
