    The X1700 data sheet does not mention the 4 port 1Gbps fiber extension card. It also does not provide any technical information of the SFP modules delivered with the extension cards like wavelength, range (e.g. distance supported like 10-20km or 40-80km etc, specifically for the single mode) etc.

    Missing the new rack mount guide for the X1500B models, these are very different from the original X1500

    Gents, some drawings in the new rack mounting guide are reversed for the X1500B model. Ports front is at the ports back and vice versa. Just FYI

    What is included in the X1500 package? other than the power adapter.

    The X1500 package includes a DB9-RJ45 serial cable and power adapter.  However, it is possible to order a rack mounting kit.

    The X1500 Rack mount kit are now purchased on a NRR pricing model. Is the annual maintenance contract included in the CATO site license?
