MPO trunk polarity
Which type of MPO cable to choose?
The philosophy of the different generations of Brocade switches is to support transceivers of X datarate and X-1 datarate. Datarates lower than X-1 are managed by the X-1 daterate transceiver..
Example: Model G620 is a 32G FC switch. It therefore supports 32G SFPs and 16G SFPs. 8G and 4G speeds are supported by 16G optics which are multi-rate 16/8/4G.
Pureoptics provides 32G, 16G, 8G, gray and colored optics (DWDM, CWDM) for switches up to Gen6.
Since the release of Gen7 switches, Brocade has introduced the notion of “secure transceivers”. These transceivers are not currently available as compatible.
