Hi Sandeep,


No for below ones you dont need SFM. they can work with or without SFM. That's why SFM capable is mentioned. these module are fabric enabled that means that hey cna work both on 32 BGPS and 256 GBPS if SFM is provided.


HTH, Please rate if it does.

Hi Sandeep,


This module is fabric only module which works on 256 GBPS. Its has to have SFM2, without SFM it will not work.
