SG500X-48 SFP(+) ports

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to pick these up for a company with a growing network. I'm, however, confused about the SFP(+) ports. Ok, so there are 4 of them that can work at 10 gigabit speed simultaneously.

What is the purpose of the 2 additional 5 gigabit SFP ports then? Can they be used together with the 10G SFP+ ports?

I found this in some manual:

Non-Stacking standalone option:

• Ports XG3/S1 and XG4/S2 available as standard network ports

– Speed—1G or 10G

• Port S1, S2 and 5G are not available

• Ports XG1 and XG2 are available as standard network ports

– Speed—1G or 10G

So if I interpret this correctly,  then the 5G ports are only to be used with some form of stacking?

Many thanks for confirming,

Jeroen

The 5 gig ports are combo ports. You can choose to use either the 5 gig or 10 gig port but not both.
