Can I use RJ45 tranceivers with 10G SFP ports on my Unitrends Appliance?

SUMMARY

Support for 10G RJ45 SFP interconnections on Unitrends Appliances

ISSUE

Some customers require multiple network connections beyond those otherwise included onboard on Unitrends appliances. Additional add-in adapters are available for 10G connections using SFP in current generation 2U appliances as well as some older generation models, but installing additional RJ45 connections is not an option.  How can you connect to a 3rd RJ45 port?

RESOLUTION

Vendor 10Gtek manufactures and Intel Compatible 10GBase-T SFP+ 10 Gigabit RJ45 Copper Transceiver 30-Meter.  

Unitrends Engineer and and QA have tested and certified this adapter and can confirm 1G and 10G connectivity to standard switch ports via the Unitrends 10G SFP adapter.  

Unitrends does not sell or distribute any SFP adapters for the cards we sell, however, this component can be acquired from a variety of resellers and websites and will work with our equipment.  You can also find this information on our KB discussing compatible SFP adapters.  What SFP+ Modules does the 10Gbps card support   |   10Gbe adapter not online
