IBM BladeCenter - Brocade 10-Port 8Gb SAN Switch Module

Hey folks,

I am wondering if I can get some help.  We have an IBM BladeCenter HT with a Brocade  10-Port 8Gb SAN Switch Module (IBM p/n: 44X1921) which I believe is a rebranded Brocade 5470 switch.  We are in urgent need of the 8Gbps SFPs (IBM p/n: 44X1962).  They seem to be in very short supply.  Does anyone know if there are Brocade branded SFPs that would work in the switch module that would not cause any issues?  I have been looking for a part number cross refrence but have been unable to find anything.  Any help would be much appreciated!!!
