Distance limitations mutlimode fiber

Can anyone tell me what the distance limitations are running multimode fiber 62.5? I'd like to extend my SAN to another building directly across the street. Going from Brocade 48k to Brocade 4100. Can I do this without the need for extended fabric license? The distance between buildings is approximately 200 meters. End to end would be around 350 meters.

Re: Distance limitations mutlimode fiber

From the "BCFP in a nutshell" guide:An extended fabric license is required for distances >10km.
