    Hi 

     

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

     

     

    Regards

    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.
