Clarification on ProCurve cables

A question from Paul:


I found a link to the quickspecs for HP ProCurve 10-GbE SFP+ Direct Attach Cables at http://h20195.www2.hp.com/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c01856205.pdf (from the web page http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/za/en/ho/WF06c/A1-329290-64274-3897937-3897937-3897936-4063701.html?lang=en&cc=za), and it listed the following in the document:


HP ProCurve 10-GbE SFP+ 1m Direct Attach Cable J9281B
HP ProCurve 10-GbE SFP+ 3m Direct Attach Cable J9283B
HP ProCurve 10-GbE SFP+ 7m Direct Attach Cable J9285B


Are the above cables the same type of cables as J9300A/J9301A/J9302A but just different part numbers?


And the answer from Vincent:


No they’re not the same. The J928xB have an SFP+ module at each end. The J930xA have an SFP+ module at one end and an XFP module at the other.
