MCX416A-B and sx1012 QSFP compatibility


We are configuring 3 new servers for a small ESXi cluster (vSphere 6) and, because we already own a pair of SX1012 switches, we were looking at Mellanox for the adapters.

We have 2 options:

  • MCX416A-B

  • MCX314A-BCCT

What we don’t know is if we can connect the MCX416A-B with the SX1012 using QSFP+ cables for 56Gb per port as the adapter has QSFP28 ports.

Can anyone clarify if this is supported or not?
