How to attach Brocade 5470 to CWDM

Dear All,

there are two server rooms connected trough Cisco CWDM, and I have to attach a Brocade 5470 to it. Where can I find compatibility information about this switch and the required SFP? The switch is an OEM IBM Blade switch, running the 6.4.3 firmware.

Thank You!
