1Gb to 10Gb VC Flex-10 Upgrade

Hello All,

We currently have out VC modules connected via 1Gb SFP RJ-45 Modules to our switches. We will be upgrading to 10Gb capable switches and we were wondering if all we had to do was replace the 1Gb SFP RJ-45 modules with the new 10Gb TwinAx cables or if we needed to do more (i.e. backup VC config, etc.)?

All you have to do is replace the SFP's with 10Gb SFPs or Direct Attach Cables (DACs).  After replacement, VC will recognize the new SFP/DAC and form link with the upstream 10Gb switch.  No config necessary on VC.
