[RETIRED] Supported Transceivers and Cables for Mellanox Switches

Follow

Note: This article has been retired. The current list of supported transceivers and cables is available on the Cumulus Networks hardware compatibility list.


Supported Optics for Mellanox 2700 and 2100-series Switches

Mellanox has qualified the following optics for their SN2700, SN2700B, SN2100 and SN2100B switches running Cumulus Linux. They are organized by speed and type. 

These tables should provide enough information to source products from your favorite transceiver or cable vendor. Some hardware platforms on the Cumulus Linux HCL may have more specific examples for use with their equipment running Cumulus Linux.

In some cases, the part number includes the cable length (for example, MCP7H00-Gxxx, where the xxx is replaced by a code identifying the length). For more information, see the Mellanox website.

Please be sure to check with the latest release notes for the version of Cumulus Linux you are running for any known caveats.
