Nexus 5k to 2k to 10gig Server conectivity

Hi All,

Sorry in case I'm posting a Silly question.

We are in the plan of implementing a new 10gig network. For this we have choosen the Nexus 5596 and 2232 pair. Please let me know the transceivers/accesories I should order for connecting 10Gig servers of NC552SFP dual port NICs to the 2232 in High availability (NIC 1 to 2232PP 1 and NIC 2 to 2232PP 2). Should I order the FEX SFP+ uplink conector to conect 5k and 2232 also (or its aded to the Nexus box itself) ? Also, is it fine to have Nexus 2232 in floor 2 and Parent neus in Floor 3 (say seperatd by a max of 400meters)?

Thanks in advance,

Bala

Nexus 5k to 2k to 10gig Server conectivity

Hi,

The servers usually take standard LH or SH optics.  So for your servers you can use the SFP+10G-SR

You also need to order the 10gig SPF+ for connecting the FEXs to the 5Ks.  If your distance is 400M from FEX to the 5K than you need to use LR type SFP.  If you cable is 50/125 OM4 you can use SR, but you are safe if you use LR.

Have a look at table -2 in this link for the type of optics and the distance limitation

Also table-4 in this link:
