Supported Socket Transceivers and USB Ethernet Adapters

These are the supported types of SFP (Small form Factor Pluggable) transceivers that you can 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

For more information, see Cato Socket Deployment Guides.

X1700 Socket Supported Transceivers

These are the supported transceiver types, and the Cato part numbers (P/N). When more than one P/N is available, you can order either option:

  • Transceiver 1G LR (P/N FTLF1318P2BTL) and (P/N FTLX1475D3BCV)

  • Transceiver 10G LR (P/N FTLX1471D3BCL) and (P/N FTLX1471D3BCV)

  • Transceiver 1G SR (P/N FTLF8519P3BNL)

  • Transceiver 10G SR (P/N FTLX8572D3BCL-G1) and (P/N FTLX8574D3BCV)

X1600 Socket Supported Transceivers

These are the supported types of SFP (Small form Factor Pluggable) transceivers that you can use with the X1600 Sockets. When more than one P/N is available, you can order either option:

Socket ports 1-2

  • Transceiver 1G Multi-Mode SR (P/N FTLF8519P3BNL)

  • Transceiver 1G Multi-Mode SR (P/N FTLF8519P2BNL)

  • Transceiver 1G Single-Mode LR (P/N FTLF1318P2BTL) and (P/N FTLF1318P3BTL)

Socket ports 3-4

  • Transceiver 10G Multi-Mode SR (P/N FTLX8572D3BCL-G1) and (P/N FTLX8574D3BCV)

  • Transceiver 10G Single-Mode LR (P/N FTLX1471D3BCL) and (P/N FTLX1471D3BCV)

  • Transceiver 10G Direct Copper (P/N HP JD097C)

X1500 and X1600 Sockets Support USB Ethernet Adapters

You can enable the USB1 and USB2 ports on an X1500 or X1600 Socket to use an Ethernet adapter as a WAN link for the Cato Cloud or as a VRRP link for HA keepalive traffic. This article lists the adapters that are supported by Cato for all X1500 and X1600 Socket models.

The maximum supported bandwidth for each USB WAN link is 25 Mbps for each direction (upload and download).

  • For Socket v14.0 and higher, the following adapters are supported:

    • Buffalo model:LUA4-U3-AGTE-BK

    • Elecom model:EDC-GUA3-B

    • Sanwa Supply model:USB-CVLAN1WN

    • Dell DBJBCBC064 USB 3.0

  • For Socket versions v5.0 - v13.x, the following adapter is supported:

    • Dell DBJBCBC064 USB 3.0

    Added supported transceiver types for X1700 Sockets

    Could you add the following

    - transceivers for the X1700B Socket 

    -  SFP Copper Module for the X1700B Socket.

    - clarifing out does the X1700B 4x Copper addon-card is based on SFP or SFP+ Ports and does the copper addon-card include Ethernet-T transceivers (RJ45) plug's or are they empty SFP / SFP+ sockets  

    - clarifing out if the X1700B add-on cards are in general based on SFP or SFP+

    Hi Odis - thank you for reaching out. 

    SFPs do not require powering down.

    Hi Daniel - thank you for your questions. This KB  includes the transceivers for both the X1700 and X1700B sockets. Regarding the card add-ons, you can find more information about that in the X1700 Deployment Guide.

    Can you hot swap the SFP's or does the socket need to be powered down?
