GE electrical interface module
GE electrical interface modules are described as follows: A GE electrical interface module has four 1 Gbit/s electrical ports. These ports are the service ports used to connect the storage system to application servers and to receive data read/write requests from application servers.

Indicators on a GE electrical interface module
Indicators on a GE electrical interface module are described as follows: Power indicator/Hot swap button Steady green: The interface module is working correctly. Blinking green: The interface module receives a hot swap request. Steady red: The interface module is faulty. Off: The interface module is powered off or is hot-swappable. Link/Active indicator of a GE electrical port Steady green: The link to the application server is normal. Blinking green: Data is being transferred. Off: The link to the application server is down. Speed indicator of a 10GE electrical port Steady orange: Data is transferred between the storage system and application server at a rate of 1 Gbit/s. Off: Data is transferred between the storage system and application server at a rate lower than 1 Gbit/s.

Can GE optical modules and GE electrical modules be installed on the same interface board of the S12700
GE optical modules and GE electrical modules can be installed on the same 1000M optical interface board of the S12700, but you must configure the O/E converter on the 1000M optical interface board. The 1000M optical interface board of the S12700 can use only the Huawei certified converter. When Non-Huawei O/E converters are installed on interfaces of the S12700, the interfaces still work as optical interfaces.

Can GE optical modules and GE electrical modules be installed on the same interface board of the S7700&S9700

No LPT support on GE electrical ports
Question: A customer conducts an LPT test on the 12LOG board on the OSN 6800. During the test, it is found that only GE optical ports of the LOG board support LPT, and LPT on GE electrical ports fails. The customer wants to know whether the failure is caused due to a device fault or product specifications issue. Analysis: None Root cause: None Answer: According to a confirmation with Huawei R&D engineers, LPT is an optical-port feature and is not supported by GE electrical ports. This is determined by LTP specifications and is not related to products. Suggestion and conclusion: All GE electrical ports do not support LPT.
