SFP compatibility with 10gbE?

Answered Question
Jun 5th, 2007

Someone knows if a SFP (GLC-SX-MM=) works with a fiber optic patch cord 10gbE? As a port FE works with a UTP Cat.6 cable (obviously at 100Mb).

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Most of the 10GBE fiber patch chords are using 50um Core Size and if your patch chord is of 50um or 62.5um then 1000BASE-SX short wavelength GLC-SX-MM will support the same....

Rate if it does,

Hi Parry,

I know that it will not work in 10gb, but my question is will function in 1gb with a fiber optic patch cord 10gbE, to only understand if it has some physical problem of the compatibility.

Yeah, I agree with Balaji on this. the same multimode fiaber patch cable and work for both 10GB and 1GB connection. You have to just change the GBIC connector for either 1G connectivity or 10GB connectivity.

HTH,
