Is possible to plug QSFP28 (100G) Direct Cable in First port of Connext5-EN Dual Ports (100G) and QSFP (40G) Direct Cable in Second port of same NIC?

For example :

MCP1600-C002 in first port

MCP1700-B002E in second port

Hello Jean-Philippe,

Thank you for posting your inquiry on the NVIDIA Networking Community.

Yes, you can insert a 100GbE cable in one port and a 40GbE cable in the other port. Both ports function independently from each other. Just make sure the cables you are using are in the validated/tested list of cables mentioned in the RN of the f/w of the adapter →

Thank you and regards,
