Supported Socket Transceivers and USB Ethernet Adapters

X1700 Socket Supported Transceivers

These are the supported types of SFP (Small form Factor Pluggable) transceivers that you and use with the X1700 Sockets. The transceivers are hot-pluggable and you can mix LR (long range) and SR (short range) transceivers in the same Socket.

  • SR generally supports up to 25m (or 200-300m for advanced cables)
  • LR generally supports up to 10km

These are the supported transceiver types and the Cato part numbers (P/N):

  • Transceiver 1G LR (P/N FTLF1318P3BTL)

  • Transceiver 10G LR (P/N FTLX1471D3BCV)

  • Transceiver 1G SR (P/N FTLX8519P3BNL)

  • Transceiver 10G SR (P/N FTLX8574D3BCV)
