SFP+ modules compatibility

Hopefully my device will finally arrive today. I’m looking at using the SFP+ module to connect to my 10G network.

in relation to purchasing a DAC+ cable or other SFP+ modules, is there any compatibility concerns or just get a DAC cable compatible with my switch?

Yes, I would choose a DAC that is compatible with your switch. There is no vendor enforcement/restrictions on the Ten64 end.

The only types of modules not supported are 10GBase-LRM (10G over ‘legacy’/‘orange’ multimode fiber) and dual-speed (1/10G) transceivers.

There is a list of tested modules in the ‘Hardware Compatibility List’

I have used both a 10Gtek (emulating the Cisco DAC[1]) and the standard white SFP+ Ubiquti DAC cable - both worked fine for me, but I only tested them on one switch.
