Hello


I have a Fiber link in place and would like to plug in 2 7606 routers on either end on this link.


Does the 7606 have the capability to connect to FX? If not, can I insert a PA with Fiber connectors (like an OC1)?


Thanks

You sure can. You can either use GLC-FE-100FX or GLC-FE-100LX.


Here's the link of supported SFP modules (FastEthernet and GigEthernet) for the 7600 routers:

Hope this helps you.

Yes, you have all types of fiber interfaces on the 7600 routers, including 10 gigabits. What you choose depends by your fiber plant, and budget.

We are looking at a fiber link with an LC connector which in turn has to plug into the 7606 router. Any suggestions?

I think more than LC connector you should provide info what speed you are looking for and what is the distance between 2 routers?


LC is just the connector even if the card for the speed and distance dont have LC connector. you can buy a cable which will convert to LC connector at the end.
