is there any minimum distance required when using cisco's SFP-10G-LR (smf) to prevent any damage on the receiving SFP+ module?
According to what I found in the web there is no minimum distance for IEEE 802.3ae! It can be used even for two meter connections.
Can anyone confirm seeing these SFP-10G-LR modules working on short distances?
I just want to avoid damaging the modules as they are very expensive but I have to use single mode fiber and the distance is only about 10-20m.

The transceiver's max transmit power is 0.5dBm and the maximum receive power is 0.5dBm, so the minimum fiber length can be as short as required.
