Active SFP+ Twinax 10gbE between Cisco Nexus and HP Servers
Posted on 2012-04-13
We are in the planning stages of a new Nexus 7009 Core switch, and are trying to verify compatability of using 10 meter SFP+ Active Twinax cabling (Cisco part: SFP-H10GB-ACU10M) to connect the core to server HP servers with NC552SFP 10gbE cards. I know that the cards support SFP+ twinax, but I can't find any information about support at the 10m length which requires the active twinax rather than passive. Does anyone have experience wiring HP servers for 10gE at this distance?
