Installing and Removing SFP Modules

These sections describe how to install and remove SFP modules. The modules are inserted into the
SFP module slots on the front of the switch module. These field-replaceable modules provide uplink

You can use any combination of SFP modules. Refer to the switch module release notes for the list of
SFP modules that the switch supports. Each port must match the wave-length specifications on the other
end of the cable, and the cable must not exceed the stipulated cable length for reliable communications.
See the

“Installation Guidelines” section on page 2-3

for cable stipulations for SFP connections.

Use only Cisco SFP modules on the switch. Each SFP module has an internal serial EEPROM that is
encoded with security information. This encoding provides a way for Cisco to identify and validate that
the SFP module meets the requirements for the switch.

For detailed instructions on installing, removing, and cabling the SFP module, refer to your SFP module
