Intel XL710-QDA2 Compatibility with Dell Networking Cable QSFP+ to QSFP+ 40GbE Passive Copper Direct Attach Cable

Hi all, I have an Intel XL710-QDA2 dual port 40Gb adapter.

https://ark.intel.com/products/83967/Intel-Ethernet-Converged-Network-Adapter-XL710-QDA2 Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter XL710-QDA2 Product Specifications

I am trying to connect the adapter to my network but do not have any certified XLDACBL1, XLDACBL2, and XLDACBL3 or QSFP+ transceiver at the moment.

I have a few units of Dell Networking Cable QSFP+ to QSFP+ 40GbE Passive Copper Direct Attach Cable, believed to be OEM from Amphenol.

Not sure if the cable can work with XL710-QDA2 adapter? Fyi, the adapter will used to support iSCSI. Appreciate any advise / experience sharing.

Many thanks!

Hi Lawrence-Ang,

 

 

Thank you for posting in Wired Communities. It is recommended to use the validated cable listed on our website for the XL710-QDA2, please refer to the link below for reference:

You may try testing this but the configuration is not comprehensively validated or supported, so functionality will not be guaranteed.

 

 

Regards,
