Question on the difference between the VCFC 8GB 20Port and VCFC 8GB 24Port SPF/s

Steve had a Virtual Connect Fibre Channel cable question:

 

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

 

Ok, does anyone know the difference between the SPF/s for the two VCFC 8GB interconnects. Our product Bulletins and Sales builder show different model SFP/s between the 20 and 24 ports switches.

 

VCFC 8GB 20 Ports Shows - 8Gb Optical Transceivers (SFP+)Short Wave 8Gb - 75m P/N AJ718A VCFC 8GB 24 Ports Shows - 8Gb Optical Transceivers (SFPs)Short Wave HP 8Gb SW B-series FC SFP+ P/N AJ716A

 

Why the difference SPF/s? Will either work in the other interconnects switch? Are the VCFC Switches made by different manufactures? Assuming yes.

 

I have a customer asking because he received the wrong SFP/s based on the product quickspecs.

Chris replied:

 

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

 

Yes, each VC FC module is made by two different manufacturers and the SFP transceivers are different and do need to be the correct ones.

There is a restriction for the VC-FC 8Gb/24 port as it will only work with B-Series SFP.

No restriction on the VC-FC 8Gb/20 port modules.
