Intel(R) Ethernet 10G 2P X520 Adapter twinax or fibre sfp

Hello All

Please help

A customer has several servers with Intel(R) Ethernet 10G 2P X520 Adapter NICs.

They want to connect to Cisco Meraki 425 10gb switches. The documentation is not clear, can we use twinax cables to connect between the meraki switch and the Intel x520 NICs instead of buying lots of separate 10gb sfp and cables?

Thanks

I'd also suggest contacting Cisco for requirements with your desired setup to ensure compatibility.

 

 

Hope this helps.
