SFP Question - The Same but different

  • 1.  SFP Question - The Same but different

    Posted 07-14-2014 04:36 PM

    I need some help understanding why my SFPs show differently on the switch but are the same.

    We have 2 x Brocade 300 switches and they have HP AJ716B SFPs installed.

    They work fine but i don't understand why some say they are

    HP-A Brocade Inter_dist and others say HP-F Brocade Short-dist

    They are identical part numbers so is this OK or do i need to change something.

    Hi,

     

    Probably HP sells them as equivalent but those SFPs were purchased and OEMd them from different vendors and that's way they may not be exactly the same.

     

    there is nothing that special that you need to do with them.
