Hi all

 

Does somebody know if we support 40Gb from the VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 with our QSFP+ DAC Cable to the Cisco Nexus 5672?

It’s up to Cisco to support HP DAC cables, we only qualify at our end. Most likely they will be appear as 3rd party on Cisco side.

 

We do *enable* the following Cisco DAC cables with VC FlexFabric-20/40 F8 module:

 

QSFP-H40G-CU1M

QSFP-H40G-CU3M

QSFP-H40G-CU5M

QSFP-H40G-CU7M

 

QSFP-4SFP10G-CU1M

QSFP-4SFP10G-CU3M

QSFP-4SFP10G-CU5M
