Answer

Customers might need to connect their Cisco 40GbE Ethernet switch ports to NetApp FAS platforms onboard or optional NICs using a Cisco copper 4x10GbE breakout cable.

The authoritative source for cable compatibility information is the NetApp Hardware Universe. NetApp part number X66120-3 or X66120-5 can be used as a cross-reference.

Cisco part numbers for QSFP+ to 4xSFP+ copper break-out cables:

  • QSFP-4SFP10G-CU-1M
  • QSFP-4SFP10G-CU-3M (NetApp Part Number: X66120-3)
  • QSFP-4SFP10G-CU-5M (NetApp Part Number: X66120-5)
