A6685 - Multi or Single?

I've purchased a Fibre Interface for a HP9000 K370. Our networking guys asked if it uses multimode or single. The Brocade switch I will be patching into is using multimode cards. How do I know if my A6685 can handle multimode?

Thanks

Does it has any markings that say SX or LX or LH?
If a problem can be fixed, there's nothing to worry. If a problem can't be fixed, worrying ain't gonna help. Bottom line: don't worry.

Didn't realise, but you can actually pull the card out of the interface, and multi-mode was written on it.

Cool.

LH SX & LX may sometimes be marked on the box in which the card came. That would have said something about the type of fiber it'd take.
