What is the best way to connect two HP 2530-48G (J9775A) switches using the SFP ports? The switches are a few inches apart in the same rack. Is there a SFP direct attach cable?
Checking the webpage of accesories for HP 2530-48G (J9775A) I could not find any Direct Attach Cable for this switch, neither 10G fiber based SFPs.
Among the SFPs compatible with this switch:
- If you want to use the SFP ports for interconection and would like/need to avoid optical fiber cables you can use the HP X121 1G SFP RJ45 T Transceiver (J8177C) which is 1G and suitable for your distance.
- If you don´t have a restriction forcing you to avoid fiber links, take into account that HP X121 1G SFP LC SX Transceiver(J4858C) is a bit cheaper than the copper one (at least in list price for the USA) and also suitable for your distance
