XL710-QDA2 to SFP+ Fibre (netgear)

Good Morning-

I'm in the process of retrofitting a lab. Hardware has not yet been procured.

The Intel X710 QDA2 cards will be utilized in the new nodes but idle until an appropriate switch is bought.

There is currently a netgear 10gbE (prosafe xs708e http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/datasheet/en/XS708E.pdf http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/datasheet/en/XS708E.pdf ). I could delay one upgrade if I can interface one of the XL710s to this SFP+ fiber port.

I've not see approved cables at any of the intel links for a breakout to fiber. Does this exist?
