Yes, but there are some limitations. Please refer to Table 6 in the following document.

We did happen upon an issue where using the LX/LH moudules over 50um MMF over distances around 200m-250m where we discovered DMD (Differential Mode delay) and had to use relatively costly mode-conditioning patch cables to confirm the condition.

The symptoms that led to this discovery were fairly limited to "input errors" on both end of some trunk links. We're talking about 1 to 2 errors a week. In our case we just went to SX modules and all issues cleared.

Our interfaces never came up and we too had to use conditioning cables.
