Re: Weird GigE Media Converter Behavior
Also, some of the SFP vendors did not necessarily provide all the optical power reading, transmit bias current, voltage, temperature etc few years ago. Nowadays it is more common for the SFP vendors to provide this information (and in a standard fashion) enabling system vendors to be more "bold" about displaying these parameters from their CLI/management systems.
