10Gbps CX4 to 10Gbps SFP+ media converter



The DMC-805X 10G CX4 to 10G SFP+ Media Converter converts 10G CX4 signals to 10G SFP+ fibre signals. The DMC-805X comes with an SFP+ slot for user-selectable fibre transceivers and extends the network connection to various lengths depending on SFP+ transceiver capability. The DMC-805X is a high-performance 10G media converter which provides flexible distance extension for servers equipped with CX4 NICs or older 10G switches with 10G CX4 ports. The DMC-805X can be used as a standalone converter or installed in a standard rack-mount chassis (DMC-1000). A management option is available for the DMC-805X installed in a chassis (DMC-1000).
