Connecting 10GBps Flex-10 VC to HP Procurve switches

Hi all,


We would like to connect our c7000 Blade system loaded with Flex-10 VC to a Procurve Switch with 10GBps bandwith.


My question is simple: is the following configuration going to work?


- One Blade c7000 enclosure

- One Procurve 2910-48G

- Transceiver 443756-B21 in the Flex-10 module

- Transceiver  J9150A in the Procurve


Connect both switches using LC Fiber cables.


Is this going to work? :)

P/N 443756-B21 is an XFP type of transceiver and will not work in the VC Flex-10 module. It only accept SFP or SFP+ types of transceivers.
