Requirements on a GE module that needs to be interconnected with a client-side GE module of a TOM board

7

The two GE modes interconnected with each other must be in the same mode (either single-mode or multi-mode) and their wavelengths must be the same.

Major difference between GE (GFP-T) and GE (GFP-F) encapsulation modes at the client side of the TOM board
GE (GFP-F) can detect and respond to negotiation packets of the Ethernet working mode. It supports autonegotiation. GE (GFP-T), like an optical fiber, implements negotiation of the Ethernet working mode between the data devices interconnected with the TOM boards.

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
GE optical modules and GE electrical modules can be installed on the same 1000M optical interface board of the S7700&S9700, but you must configure the O/E converter on the 1000M optical interface board. The 1000M optical interface board of the S7700&S9700 can use only the Huawei certified converter.

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.

Actual maximum rate of the GE module on a TOA board
The GE module is configured on the client side of the TOA board. Since client services are transparently transmitted, the maximum rate of the GE module is the standard GE rate, 1.25 Gbit/s.
