The QSFP ports support the following types of cables:
4x10 Gbyte fiber SR
4x10 Gbyte to 4 SFP+ 10 Gbyte fiber SR
4x10 Gbyte direct attach copper
4x10 Gbyte to 4 SFP+ 10 Gbyte direct attach copper
Before installing a QSFP Ethernet cable, identify the type of QSFP Ethernet cable that you are using for the connection.
The passive copper Ethernet cable is a single-part unit, where the cable and the optical tranceiver (cable connector) are a single combined assembly.
The active fiber QSFP Ethernet cable is a dual-part unit, where the cable and the optical tranceiver are separate parts.
