Distance between FI and Chassis

Hi,

I would like to know the distance limitation between fabric interconnect and chassis

As of now we are running short on rack space and we need to mount chassis in another location might be 500+ mtrs away from Fabric interconnect? want to understand the pros & cons for the same, also any data latency if we connect chassis at long distance?

I'm not aware of any cabling which will get you over 300 meters.

Can I use SFP-10G-LR to connect Chassis placed at long distance from Fabric Interconnect ? Do I will face any latency issue ?
