Compatible DAC Cables for HEP 7510 Switch

The HEP 7510 switch supports a full rang of 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity options. Those 10G/40G ports support installation of SFP+ and QSFP+ optical modules as well as 10G and 40G direct attach cables for HEP 7510 switch. We would mainly focus on its compatible direct attach cables in the following part.

10G SFP+ Direct Attach Cables
Description of 10G SFP+ DAC Cable

From the last paragraph, we figure out that the HEP 7510 switch has 10G SFP+ ports, so you can directly plug one end of the 10G SFP+ “transceiver” of 10G SFP+ DAC cable into the SFP+ ports on the switch. As we can see from the above table, HEP 7510 switch supports 0.65 m, 1.2 m, 3 m and 5 m long SFP+ passive DAC cables. These cables are hot-removable and hot-insertable: You can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions. The cables use high-performance integrated duplex serial data links for bidirectional communication and the maximum data rates can be up to 10Gbps on this HEP 7510 switch connecting with 10 Gigabit Ethernet port. The above HEP SFP+ DAC cables are suitable for in-rack connections between server and HEP 7510 Switch. They are suitable for short distances and ideal for high cost-effective connectivity to your HEP switch.

40G QSFP+ Direct Attach Cables
Description of 40G QSFP+ DAC Cable

The HEP 7510 switch are fixed switch built to provide 10Gbps and 40Gbps server access connectivity. From the above statement, we are clear that the HEP 7510 switch has both 10G SFP+ and 40G QSFP+ ports. Thus, you can connect the end of 40G QSFP+ “transceiver” of 40G QSFP+ DAC cable with the 40G QSFP+ ports directly to make connectivity on the HEP 7510 switch. And also, you can use 40G QSFP+ to 4SFP+ DAC cable to connect—you can just plug the one end of 40G QSFP+ “transceiver” into the 40G QSFP+ ports and plug the other four 10G SFP+ “transceivers” on the other end into the 10G SFP+ ports. The QSFP+ “transceiver” connects directly into the QSFP+ access port on the HEP 7510 Switch with a data rate of 40Gbps while the other end with 4 SFP+ “transceivers” can arrive a data rate of 10Gbps each. The cables use high-performance integrated duplex serial data links for bidirectional communication on four links simultaneously. 40G QSFP+ passive DAC cables are suitable for very short distances and provide a simple and useful way to establish a 40G link between QSFP+ ports switches within racks and acrossadjacent racks.


HPE 7510 (JH333A) switch is a high performance switch, which can be deployed in the enterprise LAN core, aggregation layer, and wiring closet edge. If you are looking for its compatible optical modules and cables, FS.COM is an optimal option as it provides large and in-stock the optical modules and direct attach cables for the HPE 7510 switch with low cost but high quality.
