OM cabling is supported on with SWL SFP+, by a distance more than as 190 Meter - 8Gb - you need LWL SFP+ and Single Mode Cable, see table below

by the distance is not a question of switch model, much more as descripted in the table a restriction by SWL, no matter if the switch is Brocade or another vendor.
