I was wondering if it may be possible to connect a Cisco SFP LH transceiver to a multimode OM3 cable without any issues? I have looked at several cisco documents however am not sure if it may work.
I hav across the following document http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/modules/ps5455/product_bulletin_c25-530836.html
which indicated that for 1300nm wavelength an mode conditioning cable is required; however it also indicated that if om3 cable is used; it can work without any issue?
I have attached a referece below:
Requirements for Gigabit Ethernet Transmissions
The requirement for MCP is specified only for 1000BASE-LX/LH transceivers transmitting in the 1300-nm window and in applications over MMF. MCP should never be used in 1000BASE-SX links in the 850-nm window.
MCP is required for 1000BASE-LX/LH applications over FDDI-grade, OM1, and OM2 fiber types. MCP should never be used for applications over OM3, also known as "laser-optimized fiber."
Not too sure if i understand it correctly that the Cisco SFP LH transceiver can work without any issue connected to om3 multimode fiber cable?
