Note: PDF files require Adobe Acrobat Reader*
Can I add or change SFP+ modules, direct attach cables, and SFP modules?
Yes. You can add or change optical modules. You can mix any combination of the listed optical modules or direct attach copper cables on dual or quad port adapters.
Can I mix different SFP module types and cables on a dual port adapter from the Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710 Series?Yes. You can install any mix of supported SFP+ optical modules, SFP modules or direct attach cables on the same dual or quad port adapter. You can plug any supported module into any port.
Which adapters in the Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710 Series support Intel® Ethernet SFP+ Optics and SFP+ direct attach cables?
All adapters in the Intel Ethernet CNA X710 series support Intel Ethernet SFP+ Optics, and SFP+ direct attach cables. Supported adapters are listed in the table.
What cables and lengths can I use with the Intel Ethernet SFP+ Optics?
Cable length depends on the speed, cable specifications, and which optical module is used.
Cable Lengths for Intel Ethernet SFP+ Optics provide the operating range in meters for optical cables used with Intel Ethernet SFP+ Optics.
What are the direct attach cable requirements for SPF+ with the Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710 Series?
What is a direct attach twinaxial cable?A direct attach twinaxial cable is a two-pair shielded copper cabling, terminated with SFP+ electrical modules.
Does the Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710 Series support both active and passive direct attach cables?
Yes. Active cables require Intel® Network Connections software version 15.3 or later.
Can I buy direct attach cables from Intel?
Yes. We sell 1 meter (3.3 feet.), 3 meter (9.8 feet), and 5 meter (16.4 feet) SFP+ 10 GbE direct attach passive copper cables. These cables are fully compatible with the Intel® Ethernet CNA X710 Series.
Can I use a direct attach cable to connect to a gigabit switch that accepts SFP pluggable modules?No, the Intel® Ethernet CNA X710 Series only supports 10-Gbps speed when using direct attach cables.
Which direct attach cables are compatible with the Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X710 Series?Any SFP+ passive or active limiting direct attach copper cable complying with the SFF-8431 v4.1 and SFF-8472 v10.4 specifications is compatible. We conduct testing with other members of the Ethernet Alliance to make sure there is interoperability between cables and host ports that meet these specifications.
Are these modules compatible with single or multi-mode?
