We have Supervisor V-10GE and I am looking to purchase the correct kit to connect using the 10Gb interfaces.


The 2 switches I am connecting are next to each other and I think that the following interface is correct.


X2-10GB-CX4


But I am not sure what cable I need to purchase? Could someone please advise?

Hi,


You can buy a connecting cable from Cisco, part numbers (starting CAB-INF) at the bottom of the page here:

Although this is probably the cheapest option the distance is limited to a max of 15m so if you think you might move them further apart than this then maybe a fibre connection would be a better investment.


HTH - plz rate useful posts (not just mine!)

Thanks for the cable advice.


Just one further question...


Each port provides 10Gb; would it be also possible to Etherchannel this connection if required?

There should be no problem with using both 10GE links in a channel, although there is a probably a minimum IOS version required.


HTH
