Hi,

Brocade doesn't include the 5470 in their matrix >> http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/matrices/SFP_Matrix.pdf

I do think LR SFP's will work physicaly if you need to cover the distance, based of features and figures in http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/technotes/tips0747.pdf but unsure if its possible to adjust buffercredits of other longdistance settings.

Contider contacting IBM if they support it and what partnumber to order.

I found answer in IBM BladeCenter Interoperability Guide (http://download.boulder.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/systems/support/system_x_pdf/bladecenter_interoperability_guide_2011_september.pdf).

Compatible SFP is 45W1216 SFP Transceiver 8 Gbps 10 km LW.
