Re: How SFP+ Can Connect to X2?

Hello Pouria,

you can handle this by using optical fibers with appropriate termination ( physical connectors)

SFP+ requires LC connector, the X2 may require an SC connector.

Using two fibers with LC-SC terminations solve the issue.(LC connector on one fiber end, SC connector on the other fiber end)

The fiber type has to be appropriate to the type of optical transceivers you have on your devices (single mode or multi mode, the two sides must agree on this aspect)

Hope to help

How SFP+ Can Connect to X2?

Thank for your answer

are you sure i can connect them together by that way?and it will work as 10G?

do you have any sample part number for this kind of cable?

what do you think about OneXConvertor ?

i mean can i buy WS-X6708-10G-3CXL that has 8 port and then buy 8 OneXconvertor to convert X2 to SFP+?

Hello Pouria,

>> are you sure i can connect them together by that way?and it will work as 10G?

yes it works I have done this in the past. About the cable browse the catalog of your cable supplier LC/SC cables are available. They are not sold by Cisco.

>> i mean can i buy WS-X6708-10G-3CXL that has 8 port and then buy 8 OneXconvertor to convert X2 to SFP+?

I think it would be more expensive because you would put in each X2 port a OneXconvertor + 1 SFP+ transceiver then you could use LC/LC fiber instead of LC/SC.

Hi

As Giuseppe noted, you only need the correct fiber patch cord.  So, SFP or SFP+ utilizes LC type connector and X2 utilizes SC type connector.  All you have to do is to get a patch cord with one side SC (6500) and one side LC (4849).

The patch cord does not care about the speed, you just need the correct optic on each side.  Also, if your optics are Single mode you need single mode patch cord.  If your optics are Multimode than you need Multimode patch cord.
