Summary: Fibre Cable Specs

It appears that the fibre cables in use by E3500 storage arrays are 50/125
Multimode Fibre Optical Cable, Sun Part No. 537-1006 for 15m. The maximum
distance would be 2km, which is significantly further than the 550m max when
using this type of cable for Gibabyte Ethernet - perhaps they have increased
the MHz*km value from 500 to something faster, but this was more information
than I needed so I didn't check.
Thanks to Baiju C. Karedan and Joe Thykattil who both gave me what I wanted
before Sun managed to.
