Please see Transceiver Support Matrix here 


You will see that there are no 10G RJ-45 listed, it is possible to use QSFP breakout to achieve a supported solution for this type of connectivity

Looks like the transceiver support matrix is lagging a bit.


NOS7.1.0 supports the Methode Electronics 10GBaseT optic - their part number is DM7051.


This is listed in the hardware enhancements in the NOS7.1.0 release notes.
