i've always thought that while fc/25 was sun's own, the gbics - the
plug-in fiber r/t modules - were standard.  if true, many brands could
find their way under sun covers over the years.  iirc you can get
copper gbics, for situations which don't demand the distance fiber can

in my own encounter with a sun ssa [in a y2k project] i learned from a
sun fse that the original ssa gbics were prone to failure, as he
replaced ours.  i may have gleaned the above gbic intel from him.
