Nexus 5548p to a 3550 ISP switch - Fiber link won't light up

At a client, I'm trying to migrate from an old 6506 to a Nexus 5548p.  We tried to move over an ISP link and we can't get the port on the Nexus to light up.  The port is set as follows:

  switchport mode trunk
  speed 1000

The old 6506 port is set like this:

 switchport
 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,111,113,115,116,118
 switchport mode trunk

We're using a GLC-SX-MM SFP on the Nexus.  Does anyone have any ideas as to why this isn't working?
Thanks.

We got the issue fixed.  The ISP had it set to autonegotiate, but it wasn't working.  We set both sides to 1g/full and it worked fine.  Thanks.
