A question that I cannot find the answer for .
I am in a process of planning to implement FCIP between two sites ,
I have a DCX8510-8 with a FX8-24 blade installed with 2 x 10 GBE - SR sfp's , now the question
Would a multimode fibre as well as a single mode fibre work with the Short reach sfp or is it the same with FC sfp ie SW = multimode fibre and LW = single mode fibre
so therefore SR = Multimode and LR= singlemode
Solved! Go to Solution.

Multimode called MMF have specific Modal Bandwith
OM1 = 200 MHz
OM2 = 500 MHz
OM3 = 2000 MHz
OM4 = 4700 MHz
Singlemode called SMF, OS1 Type cable don't have any specific "Modal Bandwith"
depend what you want to relized, your should ask for a Cabling Protocols, and exact cable type.
new generation of OM3 and OM4 cable are LOMMF = Laser Optimized
OM2, OM3 and OM4, 50 μm and OS1 9 μm New cable generation, are availeble as "bend optimized" ; "enhanced bend performance" and "bend insensitive" Such cable is designe to have very small lost of signal, and is generally called BOMMF = "bend optimized"
hope that help
