10GB Copper Transceiver Support?

Folks, We have a SX1600, with a Management Module with  2-port 10 GbE.

Part Number: (SX-FI2XGMR4)

Any idea if Copper SFP+ are supported on this module? (I heard they weren't, but wanted to ask the experts)..

Thanks..

SX-FI2XGMR4 has 2 XFP ports. We don't have a direct attached cable (Twinax) with XFP modules at both ends. The only options you have here are 10G-XFP-SR (300M over OM3/OM4 Multimode), 10G-XFP-LR (10Km over Singlemode), and 10G-XFP-ER (40Km over Singlemode).


We used to have a copper XFP "10G-XFP-CX4", that came with a CX4-grade copper cable with CX4 connectors. This was EOL'ed on 6/2012.


Thanks,
