Because core sizes are different, OM1 cables can only be connected to other OM1 cables. For best
results, OM2 cables should 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 fiber optic cable types
at different link speeds.

Adapter LED
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 12 summarizes the link rate
conditions. There is a 1-second pause when the LED is off between each group of fast flashes (2, 3, or 4).
Observe the LED sequence for several seconds to be sure that you have correctly identified the state.

Power-on self test (POST) conditions and results are summarized in Table 13. These states can be used to
identify abnormal states or problems. Follow the action to be taken for each condition.
