1000BASE-LX compatible with 100BASE-LX

poirier.j

Level 1

                   I have a optical network designed over singlemode fiber. All my communication modules are based on the standard 1000BASE-LX, which is the GLC-LH-SM SFP module. However, I would like to add to my network an external component rated at 1310 nm and 100 Mbps, which is the same wavelength but a lower speed. This external component is not available on a Gigabytes speed and I am stuck with this one.

Can I connect them together, or do I have to change my SFP module with one based on the 100BASE-LX standard, like the GLC-FE-100LX ?

Also, do you have some good references where I could easily get this kind of information ?

Thank you for your time.

You will need to use a 100Mb module to connect to another device at 100Mb.

Check optical transceiver compatibility with your equipment by reviewing the following fast ethernet compatibility document:

There are 2 module types, one for GE and one for FE slots. Choose the one it says is compatible.
