Answer

Users 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.

Cisco part numbers:

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

(QSFP to 4 SFP + copper break-out cable)

The following platforms are qualified to use these cables:
