Direct-Attach “Twinax” Cable
This 5-meter copper cable, known as “direct-attach” or “twinax,” connects from one SFP+ slot to another, without the need for SFP+ transceivers. It is an economical solution for interconnecting 10 Gigabit Net Optics products, such as connecting an iLink Agg xStream to a Director xStream. It is also great for making short 10 Gigabit connections between Net Optics products and most servers, network switches, and monitoring equipment that have SFP+ slots.
The Direct-Attach cable is terminated on both ends with mechanical connectors that plug directly into SFP+ slots the same as SFP+ transceiver modules to. The cable is fully passive; it does not have signal buffers or amplifiers.
The Direct-Attach cable is compatible with all Director, Director xStream, Director xStream Pro, and iLink Agg xStream models. It is not compatible with RG-800 series Regeneration Taps.
