A client is using Dell SFP #FTRJ8519P1BNL on some old Dell switches connected via orange cables-- 50u.

We are upgrading the switches to Avaya ERS3500s. I need to use Avaya compatible SFPs for the Avaya switches and I was wondering if I can use an SFP+ on each switch. (AA1403015-E6 )

This apparently changes the 1000Base-SX to 10GBase-SR.

My concern is that the SFP+ will only give me 82 meters rather than the 550 meters.

The greatest distance is about 120 meters.

Will the SFP+ work or should I stick with the AA1419013-E5 at 1Gb/s.

It looks like the 3500 series doesn't support 10GigEthernet, you'll have to stick with gig fibres.

You are correct. I had been fooled by the SFP+ labeled port, and the mention of SFP+ in the Installing_SFP_SFP+_XFP_transceivers.pdf manual. The only mention of SFP+ is in the title, and footers.
