Unless you do
device(config)#service unsupported-transceiver
device(config)#no errdisable detect cause gbic-invalid
assuming you are using the right combination of WDM SFPs on that link.
The second command may be unnecessary on cat65xx platform.
But I guess you are aware of the consequence of using the aforementioned commands…

Looks like the line card doesn’t support it according to that doc.

I have a pair of: "WS-X6816-GBIC”

Hi All,

Anyone got experience with single strand optics on Cisco 6500s?

trying to test some Champion 1 single strand optics and cannot get a link. The GBIC shows up on the interface just never gets a physical link.
