What types of cables are applicable to SIP ports on the MPU of a CE12800 switch

In MPU connection mode, stack management links are connected through SIP ports on MPUs. A SIP port is a combo port consisting of a GE electrical port and a GE optical port. It starts to work immediately after a cable is connected and does not require any configuration. By default, the working mode of a combo port depends on whether the electrical port or optical port has a cable connected first. If the electrical and optical ports have a cable connected at the same time, the combo port works as an optical port.

Common cables applicable to SIP ports include network cables and LC fibers. When LC fibers need to be used, GE optical modules must be used on SIP ports.
