Please suggest Brocade SAN switch model

Hi all,

Which Brocade SAN switch has max amount of B-to-B credits. These switches will be used for SAN connectivity trough DWDM 250km distance for 4GB links. Current brocade 66.1 has not enough buffer credits. Probably 1x 4GB link need 500 BB credits.

You can choose 5100, 5300 SAN SW. in order to get mor eBB credit, in an ISL portgroup disable the other ports , whose BB credits will be assigned to the used one.
