Hi,

I recently got two new switches that are spf+.  It came with two fiber cables, though I'm not actually sure how to install them.  I didn't get a transceiver with them and the plug looks different to usual fiber cable.

I've uploaded a two pictures of them.

Looks like a MRTJ.

What brand/model switch is it?

I also got a 40Gbe QSFP+ module.  I think what I'm missing is a transceiver that plugs into this to make any use of this cable? Can I use these for stacking?

Did you order any SFP's or Transceivers?

Did you order the cable, or did it just come with it?

You can use the 40Gbe QSFP+ module for stacking, but I'm fairly sure  you still need to get a transceiver.

I didn't order either.

Cable just came with the switches.

I believe what I need is a 40GBASE-SR4 transceiver if I want to stack these with this cable?

Did a little more research.   Did you by this switch new?  It looks like it is not available any more.  But the cable appares to be a 40 Gbps MTP fibre cable.

I did find this, which does not seem to have part nubmers:

I did find http://store.cablesplususa.com/40defocoqs85.html that says it is Dell compatible.
