long wave SFP and license

hello

have 4/32 brocade san switches with web, zoning, fabric, extended fabric, performance monitor and trunking license in our SAN backbone. now i need some long wave SFP´s for these switches (partnr: AE493A) and a new switch on our standby side.
did i need some extra licenses or is that one i have enough?
is up to 10km with 4gb/s supported?

thank you

Hello Roland,

no, you don't need an additional license for long wave GBICs. 10km are supported with 4 GB FC.

Just following up on this trail Patrick, does that mean if I'm looking at a link greater than the supported distance by the sfp (say ELWL sfp's which support upto 30km) I can use a Extended fabric license and support a distance greater than the sfp's support.
