I have a query, I need connect a Switch 6500 with a switch HP, the switch HP has a HP X242 10 SFP module and need connect to the switch 6500 with a module CVR-X2-SFP10G. I need to know if this modules are compatible.
Typically, Cisco does not support the use of third-party transceiver devices.
Would the HP equipment support the use of a Cisco SFP? The Cisco compatibility matrix for 10G transceivers is the place to look for supported devices. I do not see the 6500 supporting 10G SFP+ active copper or optical cable assemblies with a reach of 10 meters.
Hello Tom, the information was very helpful. The team decide buy the CVR-X2-SFP10G module, in my 6500 switch I have the WS-X6716-10GE module. I refer to the compatibility matrix but I don't see any information about this module specifically, I will appreciate the help on this problem.
"Q. What is the difference between WS-X6716-10G-3C and WS-X6716-10G-3CXL?
A. Both modules offer 16 ports of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and share the same base board, WS-X6716-10GE. WS-X6716-10G-3C comes with distributed forwarding card 3C (WS-F6700-DFC3C), and WS-X6716-10G-3CXL comes with distributed forwarding card 3CXL (WS-F6700-DFC3CXL)."
"A sticker is placed on the module faceplate identifying it as either a WS-X6816-10G-2T or WS-X6816-10G-2TXL depending on whether a WS-F6K-DFC4-E or WS-F6K-DFC4-EXL daughter card is installed on the module."
"Not all 10-GB transceiver versions may be supported on your module. Refer to your software release notes to determine if a specific 10-GB transceiver is supported on your module."
It seems you will need to determine which daughter card or forwarding card is installed in the base WS-C6716-10GE board; then refer to the software release notes for transceiver compatibility. The longer reach SFP+ copper or active optical interfaces draw more power, thus they may not be supported with the X2 to SFP+ converter.
