TitleUnderstanding S-Series Option Modules and Compatibility
Objective
To understand  S-Series Option Modules and compatibility 
Environment
  • S-Series
  • Option Modules 
  • Series 1
  • Series 2
  • Type 1
  • Type 2
Procedure
Option Modules can be broken down into mainly Series 1 and Series 2 option Modules.
They can also be further broken down into TYPE 1 or TYPE 2 depending on which option slots they are compatible with.
 
Series 1 Option Modules

Series 1 Modules are compatible with S130/S150/S155 modules ONLY 
Option module series is identified by the 1st valid number in the part SOK1208-0204 (the #1 after the 'SOK' indicates that it is Series 1)
Series 1 are the older legacy modules
  • SOK1208-0102 S-Series Option Module (Type1) - 2 10GBASE-X Ethernet ports via SFP+ (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots)
  • SOK1208-0104 S-Series Option Module (Type1) - 4 10GBASE-X Ethernet ports via SFP+ (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots)
  • SOK1208-0204 S-Series Option Module (Type2) - 4 10GBASE-X Ethernet ports via SFP+ (Compatible with Type2 option slots)
  • SOG1201-0112 S-Series Option Module (Type1) - 12 1000BASE-X ports via SFP (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots)
  • SOT1206-0112 S-Series Option Module (Type1) – 12 10/100/1000BASE-T ports via RJ45 with PoE (802.3at) if in POE capable Module (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots).
N.B. Some early Series 1 Option modules have to be carefully matched to the base module by investigating serial numbers as there was a connector change that meant that there could be an incompatibility. This article describes how to check for that:  S-Series Base/Option Module Compatibility

Series 2 Option Modules

Series 2 option modules are compatible with all classes of base module ( S130/S140/S150/S155/S180)
  • SOK2208-0102 S-Series Option Module (Type1) - 2 Ports 10GBASE-X via SFP+ (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots)
  • SOK2208-0104 S-Series Option Module (Type1) - 4 Ports 10GBASE-X via SFP+ (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots)
  • SOK2208-0204 S-Series Option Module (Type2) - 4 Ports 10GBASE-X via SFP+ (Compatible with Type2 option slots)
  • SOG2201-0112 S-Series Option Module (Type1) - 12 Ports 1000BASE-X via SFP (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots)
  • SOGK2218-0212 S-Series Option Module (Type2) - 10 Ports 1000BASE-X via SFP and 2 ports 10GBASE-X via SFP+ (Compatible with Type2 option slots)
  • SOT2206-0112 S-Series Option Module (Type1) - 12 Ports 10/100/1000BASE-T via RJ45 with PoE (802.3at) (Compatible with Type1 & Type2 option slots)
  • SOTK2268-0212 S-Series Option Module (Type2) - 10 Ports 10/100/1000BASE-T via RJ45 with PoE and 2 ports 10GBASE-X via SFP+ (Compatible with Type2 option slots)
Series 3 Option Modules

Series 3 Option Modules are compatible with S140/S180 right side option module slot only
SOV3208-0202 S-Series Option Module (Type?) – 2 Ports 10GBASE-X via SPF+ for hardware VSB only (compatible with S140/S180 Type2 right side option module slot only)

Expansion Modules

SOV3008-0404 S-Series VSB Expansion Module – 4 Ports 10GBASE-X via SFP+ for hardware VSB only (Compatible with S180 I/O Modules)


Explaining Type 1 and Type 2 Option Slots and compatibility 

Option module TYPE is identified by the 1st number after the dash ( in the part SOK1208-0204 (the #02 after the - indicates that it is Type 2)
  • Type 1 - The option module has one 20Gb connector for connecting to an S-Series module’s motherboard.
  • Type 2 - The option module has two 20Gb connectors for connecting to an S-Series module’s motherboard. 
Compatibility can be generally described as follows:

Type 1 Options Modules are compatible with all classes of base module ( S130/S140/S150/S155/S180)
Type 2 Option Modules are compatible with all except  S130 Class I/O modules 

Note: The VSB option module (SOV3208-0202) is compatible only with S140 Class I/O modules and the S180 Class I/O fabric modules.
