I have a question around the choice of 10G XENPAK for a network design that I am working on.
I am installing several 6509-E chassis around a campus which will all be meshed via 10Gb trunks. The distances between the communication rooms varies from 50 metres to 200. The grade of the installed fibre is 50/125 micron - (OM2)
Am I correct in saying from the detail on this datasheet that Cisco XENPAK-10GB-SR will not be supported as they only do above 26 metres if the fibre is 62.5 OM3 ?
I think the next XENPAK (Cisco XENPAK-10GB-LX4) will provide me with the distances needed given that changing the fibre is not an option ?
could someone confirm ?
Sounds like you're going the right direction. Here's a little MMF fiber slide show that seems to affirm your findings.
