HP Flex 10 and single-mode fibre

We are in the process of setting up blade enclosures with flex 10 modules. We have existing fibre ran through our facility that is single-mode 50/125 LC to LC.

Can we use this with our flex10 setup? What are the limitations? What issues or problems could this cause us if it is usable?

Whooops.

Single cant be 50/125.

Regardless, can i utilize this single-mode at all or is it useless for flex10?
