SO-SFP-16GFC-ER-Cxx

Hi all,

 

I'm currently looking for a supported SFP+ modul that can be used with CWDM and got a bit confused by the documentation. I've a Brocade 6505 Switch that I want to connect to a CWDM with 1550 and 1570nm wavelength. I found fitting SFPs on the Smartoptics website. "SO-SFP-16GFC-ER-C55" and "SO-SFP-16GFC-ER-C57" seem to be good matches to achieve my goal.

But I can't find those one in the "Fabric OS8.x Compatibility Matrix".

 

http://www.brocade.com/en/backend-content/pdf-page.html?/content/dam/common/documents/content-types/product-matrix/brocade-compatibility-matrix-fos-8x-mx.pdf

 

Looking at "16G CWDM0-40km" I only find "16G-ER-Dxxx-BR1" modules. But those ones are for DWDM, arn't they?

In the 8G section are the Cxx models listed. So the question is this a mistake in the documention or are the 16GFC-ER-Cxx SFPs realy not supported? And if so, what SFP should I use?

 

Thanks in advance,

Markus

Thanks for your fast reply, Antonio. The part number you mentioned would be this one from the SmartOptics site, right?

 

SO-SFP-16GFC-ER-Dxxxx SFP+, 16/8/4Gbps FC/FICON, DWDM, SM, DDM, 13dB, 40km

https://www.smartoptics.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/SO-SFP-16GFC-ER-Dxxxx-Rev-4.1.pdf

 

Regarding the datasheet, those modules are for DWDM and not CWDM.
