Can GE optical modules be used on 10GE ports of CE series switches

1

10GE optical interface cards of the CE series switches support GE optical and copper modules. A GE optical module can only work at 1000 Mbit/s on a 10GE optical port.
When a GE copper module is installed on a 10GE optical interface, the interface works as follows:
- In V100R001C00, the interface cannot connect to a 10M/100M interface.
- In V100R002C00 and later versions,?Interfaces 24-35 on the CE-L48XS-FDA/CE-L48XS-FD card cannot be connected to 10M/100M interfaces. Under other circumstances, 10GE optical interfaces can be connected to 10M/100M interfaces.
- On the CE8860EI, CE6860EI, and CE5810EI, such an interface can only connect to a 1000M interface.
- On the CE6880-24S4Q2CQ-EI, such an interface can only connect to a 100M/1000M interface.
- On the CE6880-48S4Q2CQ-EI, interfaces 1 to 12 can connect to 10M/100M/1000M interfaces, whereas interfaces 13 to 48 can only connect to 100M/1000M interfaces.
- On other switch models, such an interface can only connect to a 10M/100M interface.

Can GE optical ports use 10GE optical modules
GE optical ports of the switch cannot use 10GE optical modules. Similarly, 100M optical ports cannot use GE or 10GE optical modules.

Can I use a GE optical module on a 10GE optical port or a 100M optical module on a GE optical port
A high-speed optical port supports low-speed SFP, eSFP, and SPF+ modules. Generally, optical ports on a modular switch support low-speed optical modules. However, on a fixed switch, downlink optical ports support low-speed optical modules, but uplink optical ports do not. You can use a GE optical module on a 10GE optical port or a 100M optical module on a GE optical port. NOTE: Normally, you are not advised to install a low-speed optical module on a high speed optical port.

Can CE switches use GE optical modules to set up a stack
GE optical modules cannot be used to set up a stack.

Which types of optical modules can be used on QSFP+ optical ports of CE series switches
QSFP+ optical ports of CE series switches must use QSFP+ (40GE) optical modules and cables. When a 40GE optical port works in 4*10GE mode, it can use: - QSFP+ optical module and MPO-4*DLC or MPO-MPO-8*FC optical fiber - QSFP+ to 4*SFP+ high-speed cable - QSFP+ to 4*SFP+ AOC cable
