I'm rather unexperienced in the optical networking, so I'm looking for some advice.
I manage one end of a fiber link to our internet provider, on my end I have this switch:
It has a GBIC labeled 30-0703-01 1000Base - LX 1300nm Laser
From the GBIC there is a cable with the same style connectors on both ends that goes to a fiber patch panel, then on to my provider.
The patch cable is 2 strands bonded together that are yellow, with blue ends, and has printed on it the text Optical Cable Corporation .... Single Mode .... Riser
I'd like to replace it with this switch:
This switch has a SFP labeled GLC-LH-SM 30-1299-02
And I have a patch cable that is orange with tan connectors (black boots) on both ends, one end of this cable fits the old GBIC/Patch Panel, the other, the new SFP. (it was sold to me as N316-01M Duples Fiber Optic Patch Cable - 1M LC/SC 62.5/125 Fibre) The packing slip says "FPC MM 62 2F LC SC 1M" "CERAMIC OFNP ZIP (2.0MM) CRN"
When I plug the new SFP into the patch panel with the orange cable, I don't get any link lights on the SFP, when I link the two switches together with the new cable, I get a link.
What can I do to diagnose this problem, and make this work?
