Good day All,
- Let's say I have a situation in which I have 4 physical sites. With 3 sites to be connected independently to the 4th central site.

First off you use the term LAN and I didn't find the SAN abbriviation in your post.
However the term's ISL Extended Fabrics and the fact you posted in the DataCenter SAN forum instead of ethernet would suggest you have a question about SAN's. On the other hand you've linked the Ethernet SFP pdf and are talking about 10Gbit speeds, which is possible in LAN and SAN.
Therefor my question is, are you talking about cennecting SAN's, LAN's or possibly both?

Apologies for not being completely clear. I am talking about 10Gb/s Ethernet LAN.
The reason I put it under SAN is because I assumed the switches will be connected via inter-site fiber (which of course does not make it a SAN!).
As I said before, this is for extending a 10Gb/s LAN between multiple sites.
