Required to Connect HP Flex 10/10D Ethernet Module with Cisco 9300 catalyst switch using 10G SFP

Team,

We want to connect Flex 10/10D module uplink with Cisco catalyst Switch 9300. Can you please guide which fiber cable and SPF will be required at both Flex-10 and Cisco switch side ? Please note that, we will be using 10G Flex-10 uplink for this connection.

Hello! have you tried reading related HPE QuickSpecs (or other relevant Datasheet documenting supported options ni case of Cisco)? the HPE Virtual Connect Flex-10/10D Module for c-Class BladeSystem QuickSpecs (23rd October 2017, 19th Edition) should have supported SFP+ Transceivers already clearly listed, Cisco should have a similar document too.

From a pure connectivity standpoint a single link uplink will require - on each end - a supported SFP+ Transceiver (SR = Short Range if the fiber optic run is no longer than 300 meters) and a proper certified fiber optic cabling - generally OM3 quality should suffice - between switches' interfaces (if the HPE and the Cisco are just few meters away a fiber optic patch LC/LC should be enough between them...DAC could be problematic since they require to be supported on both ends...and if you use Cisco you could have issue on HPE side and vice-versa...the SFP+ Transceivers way is for sure more expensive but also agnostic to underlying vendor).
