    X520-SR2. Also possible to connect LR optics?


      Hello community,


      I am wondering if it is possible to connect a LR optic to one port of the x520-SR2 card or if it only supports SR optics. The chip should be the same for all X520 models or am I missing something?

      Otherwise I guess I have to go along with one X520-LR1 and one X520-SR1 which is more expensive.

      Also, I am wondering if the X520 cards support 1Gbps aswell since I wont be able to upgrade both ends simultaneously. It should be backward compatible but I know that some SFP+ Modules for example support 10Gb only.

      I hope you can help me or maybe lead to the right direction.


      Best Regards
