We have just received a device with 10Gig BaseT ports (for copper cable with RJ45 endings) that needs to be connected to a Cisco Nexus 5548. This switch only has SFP+ ports and we're connecting them right now using a couple 1Gbps SFP. We really would like to use the 10Gig connection.
I googled 10Gig Media converters and found some brands but i have doubts regarding stability and compatibility. The final scenerio would be like this:
[Nexus 5k]--[10G SFP+]---Optical Fiber Jumper---[Media converter]--Cat 6a--[DataDomain]
Does anyone out there have a similar combination of equipment? How has it worked for you?
