Hello

As long as the TwinAx cable is 5m or less in length, and is a passive cable - it will be fine. We always recommend you use the switch vendor's cables where possible.

HPE Nimble Arrays support SFP+ Direct Attach, also known as 10GSFP+Cu. This IEEE Standard network topology uses 10Gb Ethernet over twinaxial copper cables that plug directly into SFP sockets. No transceivers are used.

Passive TwinAx cables up to 5 meters in length are supported for use with HPE Nimble Arrays.
Active TwinAx cables are not supported for use with HPE Nimble Arrays.
Note: HPE Nimble Storage does not supply 10GSFP+Cu cables.

Support for SFP+ copper cables follows the specification and full SFF-8431 SFP+ MSA compliance enhances compatibility with any standard SFP+ direct attach ported switch, router, or NIC.

For information on the specification, please refer to the following link:

SFF-8431 - SFP+ 10 Gb/s and Low Speed Electrical Interface - snia.org

The following Passive TwinAx cables should work with the 10Gbps cards in the controllers.

Molex Part Number: 74752-45801 SFP+ Passive Cable Assembly, 10Gbps, 24 AWG Cable, Pull-to-release Plunger Style Latch, 5.0m Length

Amphenol 5M cable Part Number: 571540003

Amphenol 3M cable Part Number: 571540002
