The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

Cisco WS-C1100 CDDI/FDDI concentrator release notes.
Catalyst 5000 series switches support CDDI module (WS-X5103), FDDI module MMF (WS-X5101), and FDDI module SMF (WS-X5104).
The FDDI/CDDI modules run their own software image, in addition to the supervisor engine software image.
Catalyst 5000 series switches support FDDI/CDDI modules in supervisor engine software release 1.3 or later.
Catalyst 5000 series FDDI software release notes.
Catalyst 1900/2820 Series Switch
Catalyst 2820 series switches support WS-X2831, WS-X2841, and WS-X2842 FDDI/CDDI modules.
Catalyst 2820 series switches support FDDI/CDDI modules in software release 5.x or later.
Catalyst 2820 series FDDI module software release notes.
Catalyst 1600 series Token Ring switch supports WS-C161F FDDI module.
The FDDI module enables you to connect the Catalyst 1600 to file servers, routers, concentrators, or other Catalyst 1600 devices, on FDDI networks.
Catalyst 1600 series Token Ring switch supports FDDI module in software release 1.3 or later.
Cisco 7000 series routers support both FDDI half-duplex port adapters and full-duplex port adapters, which provide interfaces for both SMF and MMF optic cable.
Cisco 7000 series routers support half-duplex and full-duplex port adapters in Cisco IOS release 11.1x or later.
Cisco 4500-M and 4700-M supports one-port single attachment multimode FDDI Network Processor Modules (NPMs), and one-port dual attachment SMF/MMF FDDI NPMs.
Cisco 4000 series routers supports FDDI in Cisco IOS release 11.2x or later.
