Chelsio T520-SO-CR compatible cable + modules sourcable in United Kingdom

Hi everyone,

I have a Chelsio T520-SO-CR 10 Gigabit network card, which I need to connect to a Cisco switch.

The manufacturer suggest there are various SFP+ module/connector types and only some of them are compatible with that particular card. This one in partical has been proven be 100% compatible with both the Chelsio card and the Cisco switch but it is nearly impossible to source in the United Kingdom.

Are there any other SFP+DAC cable combos I could buy in UK that will do the job?

I'd say any Cisco a compatible twinax cable will be fine.  The data sheet is a bit confusing but it looks like only the fibre-optic modules should be Chelsio parts.

We're looking to get the copper twinax cables already packaged with the modules.
