Can a short wave SFP be used for an ISL for less then 150m ?

Hi 

 

Can a short wave SFP be used for an ISL between two 6510 switches less than 150m apart ?

Hi Faizell

 

Sure, as long as you are within the supported range of distance it is not a problem. The supported distance depends on the cable quality and the link speed. With a OM3 cables you can support up to 150 meters with a speed of 8G.
