What kind of SFPs modules are used in SW multiprotocol router? There can be two types of connections: to FC SANs and to IP networks. The ports themselves AFAIK are universal and autosensing. But what kind of SFPs do I need to connect to Ethernet network? RJ-45 or LC, or both? Should they be bought along with Brocade hardware, or can we utilize spare LC or RJ-45 SFPs for Cisco routers?
