Emulex adapters support both Active and Passive types of Direct Attached Copper (DAC) devices. Refer to the specification for the switch that you will be connecting to when procuring DAC cables. These cables have a special type of transceiver soldered directly onto the cable. The idea is to convert the optical 10GBASE-SR laser signal into a signal that can be carried over short distances (up to 10 meters / about 30 feet) within a data center rack over the attached copper wires. This is also referred to as 10 GBASE-CR “Copper Reach”.
SFP+ stands for Small Form Pluggable Plus – the second generation of the SFP interconnect system, supporting data rates up to 10Gb/s. SFP+ modules can be plugged into an SFP+ cage that is installed on the board, which allows you to swap out an optical module in the event of a failure. Optical versions of OneConnect adapters (10GBASE-SR) ship with two SFP Optical Transceivers installed in the SFP+ cages on the board. Copper versions of OneConnect adapters (10GBASE-CR) can be connected with a Direct Attached Copper (DAC or TwinAx) cable.
