Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best
results, OM2 cables must not be connected to OM3 cables. However, if an OM2 cable is connected
to an OM3 cable, the characteristics of the OM2 cable apply to the entire length of the cables.
The following table shows the supported distances for the different cable types at the different
link speeds.

Adapter LED states
Green and yellow LEDs can be seen through openings in the mounting bracket of the adapter. Green
indicates firmware operation, and yellow signifies port activity. Table 46 summarizes normal LED states.
A 1 Hz pause occurs when the LED is off between each group of fast flashes (2, 3 or 4). Observe the LED
sequence for several seconds to ensure that you correctly identify the state.

Power-on-self-test (POST) conditions and results are summarized in Table 47. These states can be used to
identify abnormal states or problems.
