Fusion Line Card Interoperability

Older Fusion SFP line cards("SFP-16A") are not interoperable with the newer version SFP or QSFP line cards, you can only run with 1,2 or 3 bays of the older SFP version. 
You can run your Fusion with a mix of the newer SFP  ("SFP-16B") and QSFP line cards.

An older Fusion SFP line card is identified as having a hardware type of "LC10G-03" and version string of "SFP-16A"

To view which version of the line cards are installed from physically looking at a Fusion look for the version string "SFP-16A" or "SFP-16B" on the arm of the line card.

(See pictures below)

To view which version of line cards are installed from within the Fusion software run the 'show version' command.
