Directly connect two N7700 via 100Gb link

Hello,

 

We are using N7700 chassis with 100G line cards (N77-F312CK-26).

Transceivers are 100GBASE-SR10 (link).

 

I'm wondering if it's possible to directly connect two chassis using some 24-fiber MPO cable, e.g. this one.

 

My most concern is about polarity issues, because aforementioned cable doesn't have a possibility to change it in-place (unlike PanMPO connectors).

 

P.S. I've also found this document (link), that states such configuration is possible, although the cable from another manufacturer is used.

Just received an e-mail from Panduit support:

 

Panduit Response:

Hello,

Yes, our 24F cable is capable of direct connect.  Fibers 1-12 on one end go to 13-24 on the other and 13-24 hit 1-12.

I trust that this helps clarify the situation
