Q

Interchangeable cables?

Are SFP and optical Fibre Channel (FC) cables interchangeable?
Most optical GE cables and optical FC cables now use the SFP format. So, the cables are the same. Keep in mind that the optics, even at 1 gigabyte (GB) speeds, are not the same for FC and GE, but the cables are interchangeable.
