Connecting 10Gb to 1Gb

Hello,

I am about to purchase a StoreVirtual 3200 with the 10Gb option (either SFP+ or Base-T). In the documentation, on page 34 it says:

"The 10G Base-T network interfaces cannot be connected to a 1 GbE device. While the network cable connectors are physically compatible, the 10GBase-T interface on the storage controller cannot negotiate at 1 GbE speeds and the network interface will not link."

 

Can someone please confirm if that is also the case for the 10GbE (SFP+)? Meaning, woudl I be able to connect the 10GbE SFP+ to a switch that is 1GbE SFP?

 

Thanks,

Sagy

hi Sagy

No, you will need 10GbE sfp for the switch as well.
