10G GBIC question

I have a cisco 6708 10G blade and a Sun server with a 10G LC connection interface. Im wishing to connect these two devices via 10g.

What type of LC GBIC is required for the Sun server side?

Re: 10G GBIC question

It all depends on the distance between the two devices.

Choose an optics module for the Sun server that matches the reach of the optics module in the 6708.

Re: 10G GBIC question

The two devices are basically side by side. I was just wondering if there was a recommendation.

But yes, I see now. I have X2-10GB-LX4 (1310 nm), and the reach on the sun side is 850nm which does not match.

Thank you.

Re: 10G GBIC question

The X2-10GB-SR optics module should save you a few dollars.
