Hi all !
I've been looking in the GTACK but can't find my answer precisely :
Is it possible to use 1Gb SFP transceivers in 10Gb SFP+ ports of a 8900-10G24X-c card (ref 41632B) on a 8810 chassis ? (latest EXOS 15.5.4.2)

I've seen it's ok for S-series and not for K-series, so I wonder what the answer will be for my BD8800/8900...

Thanks for answers !

Hi, Nicolas!

In the Data Sheet for BD8000, page 5, Figure 2: Connectivity Options by I/O Module:
8900-10G24X-c = 24 SFP+ / 10GBASE-X Ports = 24 SFP / 1000BASE-X
Ports

Thank you!

For anyone who comes across this thread in the future, you can find information on supported optics in EXOS switches at the GTAC Knowledge article below:
