Operating the SFP-DAC10 direct attached cable at SFP ports of differing speeds
This document describes how to adjust the port configuration for operating the SFP-DAC10 direct attached cable at switches with SFP ports of differing speeds (1 GBit and 10 GBit).
If the SFP-DAC10 is operated between two switches with 1-GB SFP ports or between two switches with 10-GB SFP ports, the link will be established immediately.
However, if the SFP-DAC10 is connected to one switch with a 1-GB SFP port and another switch with a 10-GB SFP+ port, no link will be established with the default settings.
LANCOM switches of the type GS-2352(P) and GS-2328(F/P)
supported by SwitchOS version 3.30 RU3 and later (
download current version
