I got a few replies on this, but the following
message from Lynne Regazzaini <>
says it all: Thanks a lot Lynne!

>From what I can tell, the part number 6731A translates into
both the Vixel and the IBM-- PN 370-3975-03.

IBM 21H9870
Vixel 00651050-70
830-870 nm

Here is the Breakdown of Good Vs Bad GBIC's

Part Number Manufacture Description Status

370-2303-02 VIXEL CD Lazer REPLACE
370-2303-02 IBM CD Lazer GOOD
370-3975-01 IBM CD Lazer GOOD
370-2303-03 VIXEL Vertical Cavity Lazer GOOD
370-2303-03 IBM Vertical Cavity Lazer GOOD

IBM GBIC's can be Identified by the Wire Handle.

Vixel GBIC's must be pulled out and checked for the -03 rev of the part


If you have Vixel 02REV50, REPLACE IT!! Its bad. Vixel's 03REV50 GBICs are good. All IBM GBICs are good.
