Fibre Channel (SAN)

Posts: 0

Looking for reference of SFP/FC cable working spec.


In our customer's SAN,below medias are being used:

- 2GB/4GB/8GB short-wave SFP module

- 50μm/125μm & 60μm/125μm multimode fibre cables(MMF)

- 9μm/125μm single-mode fibre cables(SMF)

Is there any reference to be used to measure whether above components works at normal conditions:

- For SFP modules,what's the normal TX power & RX power(unit: dBm)

- For cables,what's the normal degree of attenuation(unit: db)

PS: 2GB/4GB SFP modules are most made by Finisar,and the 8GB SFP by Brocade.
