Brocade 7500 FCIP device

I want to clarify a architechture problem.

Can a 7500 device direct connect to a WAN link?

or

should 7500 connect to a layer 3(or layer 2) LAN switch, then WAN communicate by the LAN switch?

I am not familiar with LAN, please advise.

As soon as 7500 has 2 Giga Ethernet interfaces, it can be connected either directly to a WAN or to a LAN equipment.
