Hi, Hopefully someone can assist. We're being advised that the NTTP86AA (8.5G-10.52G multi-rate XFP 850nm MMF) will work with a 8Gb Brocade/HP FC Shortwave SFP+ (AJ716B). It was our understanding that we would need a different XFP module in the 6500 chassis to be compatible with the 8Gb Brocade? If this is correct can anyone advise of… Show more

What is difference between the Optical amplifiers used in Submarine technology & Terrestrial Technology. Is there any difference at the terminal Station.Please share any specific Document available
Hi Manoj, While the amplifiers used in both terrestrial and submarine application maybe similar, the way they are set up are different as you have pointed out. You are right that power for terrestrial amps depends on the input power received and they are normally set to Gain mode. While on the submarine application, power for the amps are set…

We have 4200 DWDM device in our network and Gbe (Optical Gbe interfaces) are connected to our switches using fiber cable. I just to know that which port from Ciena box is connected to our switch. Is there any command where I can find the mac address of these optical interfaces so that I can then search in my switches based on mac-address table.
Does anyone know if it is required to use the console cable to log into the 3930 switch, or if I am using it to initially configure the switch if i can just use Ethernet connection with my PC to initially configure the switch?
If the Console cable is required could someone leave a reliable source that shows the pin layout for the RG-48 , and DB-9 so i can create my own.
With the 3930 you can connect to it either over the console port using a console cable or over the management port using ethernet. To connect to it over the management port, assign your computer an IP in 172.16.233.0/24 and telnet to 172.16.233.214. Since you say this is for initial configuration, you'll have to log in using the default…
This is a question to query the community on their experience turning up OTS links. I have been presented with the following testing criteria. First, all links will be tested by provisioning channels 1 and 88 and performing a 72-hour test on them. Testing multiple OTS links at once and 1&88 at the same time are allowed. Once completed, we… Show more

We ran into a broadcast storm issue last week that took us about 3 hours to trace back to a customer that was spewing into our network through our device connected to their network. The way it was ultimately found was by a few devices that had broadcast-containment on them and following the packet dropping backwards while adding more filters on… Show more
