Hi, there is a very good documentation about the supported transceiver for 500 ans 700 series, but I can not find this for the E810 Series. What transceivers are supported for these NIC series? Specially DACs and AOC from specific switch vendors.
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.
We would like to inform you that we have a forum for these specific issues and products, so we are moving it to the "Hardware Products, Ethernet Products" forum so you can get better support for this matter.

Hi, especially I`m looking for information about the E810-XXVDA2 for OCP 3.0, but in general for all cards of the E810 series and be more specific, this are the cablesI want to us:
Cisco DAC (SFP-H25G-CUxM=) and AOC (SFP-25G-AOCxM=)
But in the mentioned post I found a suitable answer:
"The E810 series of cards are "Open Optic" which means that we don't restrict them to only Intel branded cables and optics. You may use 3rd party modules but it will be on your own validation. However, if you encounter issues during usage, we may have difficulties assisting you as it is a 3rd party product and unvalidated. The best source of support would be the manufacturer of the modules."
If there is no more concrete statement about the cisco cable possible, You can set this to solve.
Thanks a lot.
Thank you for the prompt reply.
Additionally, in case you pursue to use Intel branded optics and cables, you may visit the Product Brief of Intel® Ethernet Network Adapter E810-XXVDA2 for OCP 3.0.
Intel® Product Compatibility Tool is also available online for you to check compatibility for the network card and other Intel products.
Please also be reminded that in case you encountered issues during usage, we may have difficulties assisting you as it is a 3rd party product and unvalidated. The best source of support would be the manufacturer of the modules.
We will now proceed closing this request as per your advise. Just feel free to post a new question if you may have any other inquiry in the future as this thread will no longer be monitored.
