Multi-Enclosure Stacking using fiber cables (ethernet)

Andrew had a Multi-Enclosure Stacking (MES) question:

 

******************

 

I'm trying to find if two enclosures can be stacked together using SFP+ SR fiber modules and fibre cables - for longer distance within the datacenter. Customer wants the enclosures to be over 7m apart.

 

Is this supported? I can only find references to DAC cables in the examples/documents I have found so far.

Yes it is supported.

Be sure to look in the whitepaper on Multi-Enclosure Stacking:
