I have two new switches (DellEMC S4148T-ON) and two old switches (Dell PC5448), the S4148T-ON's have QSPF+ ports and the PC5448's have SPF ports. I have found adapters for QSPF+ to SPF+, but I have not found any adapters for QSPF+ to SPF. So my question is this, will a QSPF+ to SPF+ adapter work? Will it be backward compatible to SPF, if a SPF+ is plugged into a SPF port.
