Welcome to the Nutanix NEXT community. To get started please read our short welcome post. Thanks!
we are performing a POC at a customer site and the customer is proposing to connect a 4 nodes
Nutanix NX-3465-G4 to a Cisco Nexus Switch using Cisco Twinax Active cables 7m and 10m long. Cisco code:
Can we use these cables or there is some compatibility issue?
Tks in advance
Go to Solution.
no problem at all, as long as its SFP+ (which it is) and the switch MFG supports it (which cisco does), we're pretty indifferent in that regard
Should be good to go
Is there a maximum supported length of twinax cables? When we started with Nutanix we were given the recommendation to keep to 2M but I don't remember where that recommendation came from.
It's all SFP+, so typical standards apply.
Up to 10 Meters, but 7 and 10 meter lengths need to be Active twinax
1 through 5 meters can be passive.
