Hi there

This might seem like a daft question, but I'm looking to confirm which part I would need to connect a DELL SFP+ cable (part number 337MK) to a DELL PowerConnect 6248 switch.

I think it's just a Dual Port SFP+ Module, but if anyone could confirm if this is correct as well as the part number for the module that would be fantastic - I've not had much experience with these switches.

My question is what are you trying to accomplish. It looks like this module uses the twinax cabling, for 10g up to 5-7 meters.

It's literally just to get a 10g connection to a server in the cabinet next to it, so only requires short cable length.

As long as it's not far from the switch.
