Hello Ahmed,

it is not only a question of SFP: different clocks, framing structure are used on an OC-12 (actually being superior in the SONET hierarchy) then in an OC-3.


If the linecard is not able to work in dual mode you need an external Sonet ADM to create a virtual cross-connect between an OC-12 and an OC-3 link.


Edit:


I see that they have multi rate support

Multirate mode support (OC-3 and OC-12)

so with an explicit config and the right SFP you can get one port to act as an OC-3 link.


Hope to help

Giuseppe

Hello Ahmed,

you need to configure the port for OC-3 operation mode (multi rate = multi speed capabilities).

Once you do so the port becomes an OC-3 interface and should be able to use the SFP for OC-3 operations.


Hope to help
