Long distance fabric support

Hi,

I have two datacenters with a dark fiber distance of 80KM having DCX/5300 switches on both the sides.  Is there any SFP which can go into these switches and support long distance fabric rather than using FCP-to-IP conversion devices?


Regards,

I don't have any personal experience with that type of SFP, but Brocade's Compatibility Matrix suggests that some do exist.

Take a look starting on page 207 (page 211 in Acrobat Reader):

Hi sudhakar.ps

You'll also the the extended fabric license as well other wise you won't be able to get the performance/speed required.
