Hi everyone,
One of our customer uses Cisco GLC-EX-SMD (1000BASE-EX SFP transceiver module, SMF, 1310nm, 40km, DOM) GBIC and wants to use the equivalent of an Extreme SFP instead about 200 amounts. We decided to give MGBIC-08 1000BASE-ELX (70KM) 1 LC PORT but, its wave length is different from Cisco.

GLC-EX-SMD wave lenght 1310nm, 40km
MGBIC-08 wave lenght 1550nm, 80km

So, I will be glad if you tell me the equivalent Extreme SFP model of Cisco.

Hi Yasar, what switch model(s) will your customer be using the EX SFP with?
Hi Drew,
They will use EX SFP's on Cisco switch, I do not know the exact model, and they will use the Extreme SFP on N-Series chassis as backbone.
