Are Nexus 5596UP & Nexus 2248TP GE compatible with SFP-10G-SR?

Hello

I am looking to see if Nexus 5596UP & Nexus 2248TP GE compatible with SFP-10G-SR?

The reason is because a consultant was hired on to "design" the network layout and has decided to purchase Cisco SFP+ Copper Twinax Cables which have a 10M limit. A small handful of the Data Center racks are 10-15M away... just out of reach of the Twinax. I would prefer NOT to move the LAN row so that it is more centered in the room. Can I use the SFP-10G-SR to connect the 2 switches (5596 & 2248) together? This SFP has a 26M reach on standard 10gig fiber, the small cost increase per connection is of no concern.

Yes, it is supported. Table 2

If this is only between the Nexus 5596 and Nexus 2000s, you can also use the FET (suppose to be cheaper).

HTH,
