Reuse GBIC

Unanswered Question
Nov 25th, 2007

Dear Sir,

I have GBIC for WS-X6416-GBIC (on 6506) and now I am replacing the 6506 with 4506E. WS-X4418-GB will be used this time.

Can I use the old GBIC on WS-X6416-GBIC?


I have this problem too.

Hi Joseph

You don't say which GBIC it is.

The WS-X4418-GB supports the following GBIC's

WS-G5484, G5486, G5487

The WS-X6416-GBIC supports

WS-G5483, WS-G5484, G5486, G5487

The WS-G5483 is a for Cat5 so unless you are using that in your 6416 module you should be fine.

Attached is the full matrix for GBIC compatability between Catalyst switches.
