In my experience, Brocades in general aren’t very picky when it comes to working with any optic branding. It’s just the DOM that might or might not work.
I’ve only ever had 1 vendor show issues with Brocade after an ironware upgrade.

Can always grab a few brocade branded optics from Flexoptix

    Brocade and Extreme don't seem overly ambitious to help.
    Anyone have any documentation they can scrounge up? SFP compatibility list? The ones I see in there already look substantially like the ones I get from FiberStore, but that doesn't mean much.
    Do they still sell support on these? I'm largely just interested in newer firmware for them. I don't think they were updated since they left the factory and there are a few quirks I'm hoping they addressed at some point.
