Hi, 

 

doesn't look like that. It looks like it's mainly only supported on 8GB platforms.

 

HP SPOCK has a nice document listing the supported SFPs.

 

It's in the "B-Series FC Switch Connectivity stream" - you can find it here: http://h20272.www2.hp.com/Pages/spock2Html.aspx?htmlFile=hw_switches.html

 

The SFP AN211A is mentioned in there with the note: "The AJ715A, AK870A and AN211A SFP’s are supported in the 1GbE ports of the SAN Extension switch and blade for 1Gb operation"

 

In the same box you can also read "Listed SFP’s required for B-series 8Gb switches, directors & blades. Not supported on other B-series products except AJ716B which is also supported on 16Gb/s switches."

Re: Long Wave SFP

If only it was that simple.. with the introduction of 8GB SAN switches Brocade required Brocade Branded SFPs.
