How to attach Brocade 5470 to CWDM

Dear All,

there are two server rooms connected trough Cisco CWDM, and I have to attach a Brocade 5470 to it. Where can I find compatibility information about this switch and the required SFP? The switch is an OEM IBM Blade switch, running the 6.4.3 firmware.

Thank You!

You need to know the wavelengh and speed of the CWDM SFP's and acquire/install compatible ones on the 5470.

 

take care of the deskew if you will use trunking.
