Hi to All,
we have 6 Ex-Switch brocade 7800 in 3 site, 2 for every site, in every site we have 3 DWDM i would know if i can connect it FC via DWDM with this 3 data center configuration:
1 port for EXS 7800 in SITE1 to SITE2
1 port for EXS 7800 in SITE1 to SITE3
1 port for EXS7800 in SITE2 to SITE1
1 port for EXS7800 in SITE2 to SITE3
1 port for EXS7800 in SITE3 to SITE1
1 port for EXS7800 in SITE3 to SITE2
I would create a EDGE CORE EDGE fabric.
Is it configuration documented in brocade and is it supported with EXtension Switch 7800?

You can certainly connect 3 sites each with two 7800 over FC via WDM.
I haven't seen if 7800 with WDM cennection using FC documented as an example in any document, but Brocade Fabric OS 7.x Compatibility Matrix document has WDM device listed for 7800 switches.
And As per Brocade Storage extension solutions FAQ it also supports xWDM SFPs
Does Brocade offer a choice of SFPs?
A. Yes. The Brocade 7840, Brocade 7800, Brocade SX6, and Brocade FX8-24 can use a variety of Brocade hot-pluggable SFP and SFP+ transceivers to support distance, xWDM, cable type, and port-speed requirements
