They don't offer anything in the SFP form factor according to their tool.


Filtering on 10 Gbps and copper cabling only shows the older (and end of sales) X2 form factor product (X2-10GB-T).

ok so i not going crazy lol

how is this possible seems like a pretty standard part . 

Cisco has decided that they would rather have you buy their twinax-based transceiver products for 10 Gbps over copper.


Those are a lot less expensive but have the downside of potential compatibility issues if the other end of the link isn't another Cisco device. (Of course Cisco sees that as an upside.)

 Only problem is twinax only goes to a max of 10M(33 feet). I need to go 50 feet

Or a multi mode fiber link (with SFP-10G-SR-S=)  or a 3th party 10GBASE-T module pair seems the solution.

And, when a customer turns up in our hosting facility with a big stack of servers equipped with 10GBase-T interfaces, we have no choice but to use 3rd party 10GBase-T SFPs...


If they turn up with a big stack of servers equipped with 10GBase-T interfaces, you will not have enough with some 10GBase-T ports. Proposed solution from Cisco in this case is to add a (Nexus series) 10GBase-T switch.

Can confirm. 10 Gbase-T SFP+ module doesn't exist within the Cisco part codes, only the 1 gpbs SFP equivalent ( GLC-TE= )

I need to go 250 feet for my satellites switches and it's much cheaper going copper for the shop floor.

I don't understand why Cisco is not going ahead with its SFP+ copper module.  Others company (fs, antaria, Ubiquity, and so on) already have their module ready.

Go for SFP-10G-T-X=

Mark this answer as solved if it resolved your problem.

Yes, this is curent the only one 10GBASE-T existing @ Cisco  : SFP-10G-T-X=

I was looking for a 10GBase-T transceiver for Nexus 9k and I found one. I am not sure if It has been added later to tmgmatrix.

In my case, I typed "SFP10G" and "N9300" in the search field and I got my results:


Hope this helps.

Transceiver to host compatibility

Q.  Which Cisco platforms will support the SFP-10G-T-X transceiver?
A.  At the release, the Nexus 9000 and NCS 5501 platforms will support the transceiver. Please check the Cisco compatibility matrix for the latest information on platform support:
Q.  Are there any restrictions during deployment?
A.  Yes, the maximum power consumption of this transceiver (2.5W per port) imposes certain restrictions during deployment. Cisco switches and routers will not be able to fully populate and deploy all ports with the SFP-10G-T-X. The table below summarizes the platforms that will support the SFP-10G-T-X as well as deployment limitations.
