ISL to Cisco MDS

Where can I find the Brocade recommended procedures for integrating a new Cisco MDS 95xx series switch into existing Brocade 7.x fabric?

What usually happens is that the new switch is added as dumb port aggregator to the existing environment.
On Brocade this would be the Access Gateway mode.
I'm not sure, but believe Cisco calls this NPV mode on their gear

Besides the option Dion mentioned there is not other way. Connectivity between brocade and other equipment is no longer supported.
