The 10G slot supports copper 1G transceivers, which can operate at up to 1 Gbps in a 10 Gbps slot.
Note that you cannot insert a 10G transceiver into a 1G slot.
The following table shows the compatibility matrix of transceivers and ports available on the NetScaler appliance.
|10G||1G Fiber||1G Copper|
|1G Fiber||Not Supported||Supported||Not Supported|

QSFP+ stands for Quad Small Form-factor Pluggable, which is a small, hot-pluggable transceiver for connecting data devices. This transceiver is used for 40G interfaces.
QSFP+ to Four SFP+ Copper Breakout Cables—These cables connect to four SFP+ 10GE ports of a NetScaler appliance on one end and to a QSFP+ 40G port of a Cisco switch on the other end.
Support for 40G connectivity—NetScaler models that have at least four 10G SFP+ ports connect to Cisco 40G interfaces by aggregating four of the 10G SFP+ ports to form a 40G link aggregation channel. QSFP to Four port SFP+ Copper Breakout Cable QSFP-4SFP10G-CU3M (reports as L45593-D178-C30) is used.
QSFP-4SFP10G-CU3M breakout cable is supported by NetScaler release 9.3 build 65.8 or later, and release 10.1 build 122.17 or later.
