D Series SFP Compatibility

Hi All, i have a question about the new 'revision D' SFP's and their compatibility. So i understand that the C series are pre-EoL and they are to be replaced by revision D but i wanted to check that if I replace a switch and use the new rev D SFP (example J4858D) and the far end of the fibre connection is a rev C (J4858C) that there is no incompatibility issue there? I know it states on the EoL announcement that rev D are 'Backwards Compatoble' but it doesnt go into any detail about what this means.

Re: D Series SFP Compatibility

You are good to go. Rev D are essentially currently shipping versions.
We made the change to eliminate the possibility of using older versions of the Rev A, B, C parts on our newer switch families
