Compatibility SFP+ and 10-Gbe X2-SC SR ??

Hi all,

As far as I 've can tell it's not possible to connect a SFP+ with a 10-Gbe X2-SC SR (j9150a<>j8436a).

I'm afraid I'm right ?

Thanx

Jaap

Hello Jaap,

SFP+, X2and XEN Pack are formfactors of 10Gbe interfaces.
SFP+ uses LC connectors and X2 uses SC connectors.
I've got a working setup between Avid ISIS Interplay and a Cisco Catalyst 4948-10Gb.

Hi Jaap

This link should help you http://www.hp.com/rnd/support/faqs/10-GbE-trans.htm

1 LC 10-GbE port (IEEE 802.3ae Type 10Gbase-SR); Duplex: full only

This should work. Just bear in mind you will need an LC-SC cable with the appropriate fibre specs.
