Question regarding 10GbE card - Intel X520-DA2

Hello there,

We are trying to implement a 10Gb Ethernet environment, we want to use Intel X520-DA2 card, but one of the requirement is to run it with 1310nm single mode.

Will this NIC card with proper transceiver capable to connect to a network with 1310nm wavelength network? If so, what transceiver is needed?

If it will not work, please advise the reason and any workaround, thanks.

Apparently you can only use Copper Twinax cables with that card - so no fiber at all!

You could use the SR1, SR2 or LR1 cards instead though - they all allow for a 10GBASE-LR transciever which can support 1310nm fiber.

Have a look here...
