sfp-ge-s= is it compatable with a glc-sx-mm

Could I have a sfp-ge-s= on one side of a multimode fiber link and a glc-sx-mm= on the other side of the link and you were within the correct distance from each other.  Will they talk to each other if they are the same wavelength. Is there a chart somewhere interfaces will work with each other and what won't.

Thanks

Hi,

I don't know of a chart that shows which transceivers are compatible with each other, but the transceivers you mention are both 1000BASE-X transceivers using 850nm wavelength on mulitmode fibre so should have no issues.

From the Cisco Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix:

  • SFP-GE-S= 1000BASE-SX SFP transceiver module for MMF, 850-nm wavelength, extended operating temperature range and DOM support, dual LC/PC connector
  • GLC-SX-MM= 1000BASE-SX SFP transceiver module for MMF, 850-nm wavelength, dual LC/PC connector

Regards
