Connecting HP 6200yl SFP to Adtran 1638P SFP+?

I am working on upgrading an older HP Procurve Fiber network with 1638P's and utilizing the 10G SFP+.

HP's are 6200yl's connected in a ring around a campus with 9 micron Single Mode fiber currently 1 gbps on HP SFP's.

For budget reasons, customer is looking at replacing one at a time.

Is it possible to phase this in and replace 1 6200yl at a time with a 1638P connecting the HP SFP to Adtran SFP+? (Understanding that I will only get 1gbps until the 1638P's are connected to each other)

My parts list for each replacement looks like the following:

The Switch: NetVanta 1638P Part Number: 4700569F1

The XIM: NetVanta Dual SFP+ XIM Part Number: 1700471F1

The SFP+ Modules: 10GBase-LR SFP+ Module Part Number: 1700486F1

First thing would be to note the specs on our SFP module:

  • 1310nm laser transmitter
  • LC fiber connectors
  • Supports 10,000 meters using 10um single-mode fiber

Since I don't know anything about the HP modules, you'll have to investigate them. Assuming that our module and theirs use the same 1310 wavelength, there's a chance it would work but of course we can't in any way guarantee that; if it works, great, if it doesn't there's obviously nothing we can do about that.

Our SFP is looking for 10um fiber instead of the 9um you mentioned, so that might have an effect on performance as well.
