SFP+ DAC for ER-X-SFP ?

Hi all

 

I bought today an EdgeRouter ER-X-SPF.

I've got a Netgear switch, a GS110TP with 2 SFP ports. I've got the last firmware installed.

 

I bought at a good price a DAC to connect them, a Cisco SFP-H10GB-CU1M from fs.com, which is a SPF+ DAC.

I choose this connection because I want to keep an ethernet slot remaining on my switch.

 

My question is : will it work ? I mean, does each equipment will be able to use the DAC not at 10Gb but at 1Gb ?

 

Thank's a lot.

 

Charles

The first result in a Google search for "SFP+ in SFP slot" is this:

Hi Charles, welcome to the Community!

 

This will depend on whether the Cisco SFP-H10GB-CU1M is able to operate in 1Gbps mode. The Ubiquiti SFP+ DAC cables support 1Gbps and 10Gbps speeds:

 

show interfaces ethernet eth5 sfp
connector=Unknown
vendor=UbiquitiNetworks
oui=00-40-20
part=UDC-1           
rev=    
serial=H17041700425    
date=17041300

show interfaces ethernet eth5 physical 
Settings for eth5:
   Auto-negotiation: on
   Speed: 1000Mb/s
   Duplex: Full
   Link detected: yes

Thanks for your answer !

If it does not work, I will swap the DAC with a traditionnal connection (SFP modules and fiber).

Hi all,

I received my DAC, and for now it's works with my switch. It has been recognized as a 1Go full duplex line.

I'm waiting for my router now (it's on its way).

 

Regards,
