10G BASE-SRL SFP+ SHORT REACH LITE Copper Twinax cables

Steve had a customer question on pass-thru cables:

 

****************************************************************************

Does anyone know if we support the “10G BASE-SRL SFP+ SHORT REACH LITE Copper Twinax cables” on the 10Gb Passthrough module?

 

Thanks,

*****************************************************************************

Another Steve gave us direction:

************************************************************************

The 10GbE PTM will accept DACs cables from any manufacturer. Cables that were tested include HP/ProCurve, Cisco and  BNT at lengths up to 7 meters. The use of a DAC cable longer than 7 meters, or an untested DAC cable will result in a logged message alerting than an untested cable is being used, but the PTM will still open the link. An Arista cable would work but generate a message.

Good info. Hope you can use this in your cabling decisions. Any other suggestions?
