AJ716A SFP+ cable is EOL

Taha was looking for a cable replacement:





Was configuring a solution for one of my customers, and I can see from info that the AJ716A SFP is EOL on 1 Jun 2012. Unfortunately, the HP 8Gb Brocade Blade SAN Swtich does not support any other SFP+. Can someone recommend an alternative that works?

Use P/N: AJ716B


From the HP SN8000B and DC SAN Director Family QuickSpecs:


HP 8Gb Short Wave B-series FC SFP+ 1 Pack, AJ716B
NOTE: Qualified and supported on 8Gb Fibre Channel blades; This is the ONLY 8Gb Short Wave Length SFP qualified and supported on 16Gb Fibre Channel blades (QK713A and QK714A).
