A 10-Gigabit Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) is a compact optical transceiver that can operate at speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second. Autonegotiation is enabled by default on the 10G SFP+ ports into which you insert your 10G SFP+ transceiver. As soon as a link between the port and the network is established, the mode is matched on both ends of the cable and for 10G SFP+ transceivers, the speed is also autonegotiated.
Insert the 10G SFP+ transceivers into the 10G SFP+ ports on the front panel of the appliance. Frequent installation and removal of transceivers shortens their life span. Follow the removal procedure carefully to avoid damaging the transceiver or the appliance.
