4GB long wave SFP in 4/64 switch


Can anyone confirm that the HP AN211A, HP 4Gb Long Wave B-series 30km Fibre Channel SFP, is supported in HP StorageWorks B-Series 4/64 switch? HP's support document is a bit ambiguous.

Thanks in advance,

According to the B series connectivity stream on SPOCK (dated 8/4/11) it does NOT.

For now I've attached the named document to my reply.

AN211A is a ELW SFP (by Finisar) for use in 8G B series only.

Your switch is an 4G one, if you need the distance, 300836-B21 is your part.

Please take into account that its an 2G ELW SFP. If you need 4G bandwith buy 4 and deploy 2 ISL's between your site per favric (preferably trunked).

Unfortunatly there is no 4G ELW available.
