FET work with B22 HP

 

Hi,

 

I want to connect a c7000, B22HP card to our 5548s. Can I use FET SFPs on the c7000 side and the 5548 side?

 

Thank you

 

I found this document a little unclear - this is what I referenced.

Pat,

It should not be an issue in using FET with the B22 series. Just make sure to use FET on both sides of the connection.

Hi Pat,FET only works between

Hi Pat,

FET only works between FEXs and the parent switches (7k, 6k, 5ks, etc..) and not between parent switches or parent switches to other vendors.

So, I must use Standard

So, I must use Standard 10GBASE-KR on the B22HP  side and FET-10G the 5548 side? Of must I use

The same on both? And if the same, what should I use on both sides? Not sure what the documentation is trying to tell us.

From what I understand the B22HP is supposed to look like a FEX from the 5548s side?

This is why I was thinking it might use a FET module.

 

Thank you.
