FCoE over Twinax Breakout cable

[ Edited ]

Hi guys!


I assume to use breakout cables for connecting servers (initiators) to VDX6740T and also connecting FCoE storage (targets) to VDX6740T.


Can I use twinax breakout cables (40Gb to 4x10Gb) for FCoE traffic?

From all the documentation I can find there are no limitations on FCoE functionality on QSFP in breakout mode, all features supported on NOS version for VDX6740T should be supported on QSFP breakout ports


Hope this helps
