Configure 1Gbps Mode on SFP+ Interfaces

The two SFP+ ports, 1 and 2 are dual-speed capable ports and can provide 1Gbps connectivity when used with the supported transceivers and configured for 1Gbps operation from the SEFOS CLI.

  • To configure a 1G-MMF link, use the supported 10G/1G SFP+ transceiver (PN x2129a). The speed must be changed to 1G on the appropriate port (see example below).

  • To configure a 1G-Cu (RJ45) link, use the supported SFP transceiver (PN x2123a), which provides a RJ45 interface. This is a 1G-only transceiver and the speed must be changed to 1G on the appropriate port (see the following example).


Caution  - When using 1Gbps mode, autonegotiation must be disabled on the link-partner. The link-partner must be configured in 1Gbps-Forced-FDX mode.

  1. Obtain the SEFOS prompt.
  2. Type these commands to configure the speed to 1G.

    For example, to configure ports 1 and 2.

    SEFOS# config terminal
    SEFOS(config)# interface range extreme-ethernet 0/1-2
    SEFOS(config-if)# shutdown
    SEFOS(config-if)# speed 1000
    SEFOS(config-if)# no shutdown
    SEFOS(config-if)# end
    SEFOS# write startup-config
