We have a countywide fiber connection project going on and for our buildings we are needing a 10gb connection between the buildings,   One end will have a Cisco 10gb connection,  the other building has 3com 4800G switches.

I would like to know if anyone is familar with the 3Com 4800G switches to tell me how I can sucessfully connect this switch via 10gb fiber connection to the other end being a Cisco switch.  I am thinking that I need a  3COM 3C17768 SWITCH 1-PORT 10-GIGABIT MODULE(XFP) plus the XFP-LX-SM1310 transceiver, but not sure if this will communication with the Cisco at the other end of the fiber.  Are the XFP transcievers cross compatible?

Thanks,
NR

For the most part, you just need to make sure the light frequency matches, and that you haven't exceeded the distance limitation.

the XFP-LX-SM1310 is 1310nm single mode fiber

This should be compatible with
Cisco SFP-10G-LR
or
X2-10GB-LR
