I am trying to push a Nexus solution in the Datacentre, but I am having trouble getting a list of 10GB NICS (not CNA) that I can use the Cisco Twinax cable with.


Does anybody have a list?

The TwinAx has optics attached but still need to plug into a NIC (SFP+) this is what i was looking for

Every 10G switch or server supports sfp+ would do, as Twinax is just A type of media, while it can only a very short distance.

Cisco has their own SFP/SFP+ modules & cables, however you may need to check the chipset on the TwinAx cables as some passive twinAx are not compatible with certain HP network adapters or SAN solution i.e. EMC.
