The FET-10G is only supported between the Nexus
Supported for fabric links only (Cisco Nexus 2000 Series to Cisco parent switch)
Cisco Fabric Extender Transceiver must be connected to another Cisco Fabric Extender Transceiver
Supported on Cisco Nexus 2224TP, 2248TP, and 2232PP uplinks
While the SFP-10G-SR can be used to connect between the Nexus to other Cisco or 3rd party products, like Nexus to Catalyst 6500.
I have a question related with this : can we connect FEX to Nexus 5000 with other transceivers than FET (SFP-10G-SR for instance) ?
would Nexus accept other vendors SFP+ (AP783A HP for instance) ?
thanks in advance !
Hi for nexus hp have a propaitary sfp exclusive for hp only. The only sfp that is compatible in Cisco is allied television sfp sx for iOS. I haven't tried it to nexus or XR
Sent from Cisco Technical Support iPad App
Nexus and FEX will accept SFP-10G-SR.
For 3rd party tranceiver, I know it works (I have a customer using some 3rd party twinax cables right now).
thanks for your answers !
I found there is a command to make "unsupported sfp" working, but I prefer running compatible ones for sure
