No.

I mean insert a Cisco SFP into Foundry Switch mini-GBIC Slot.

Hello,

I think this will be a trial & error, unless somebody else has physically tried that setup. Most likely, Cisco will tell you that only their own SFPs will work, and Foundry will tell you the same. I had an issue once with Avaya GBICs (not quite the same, but an example) in a Cisco switch, and I blew three of them, eventually we had to get Cisco GBICs...

There are though manufacturers that make SFPs that are compatible with multiple vendors, check the link below for an example:

FIBERXON SFP
