The 2-port adapters enable affordable 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) network performance with cost-effective RJ45 connections for distances up to 100 meters. The 4-port adapter enables affordable 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) network performance over SFP+ Multimode Fiber SR optical modules and also supports SFP+ Active Copper cables, depending on the Ethernet switch used. They are compatible with the installed base of GbE switching and cabling infrastructure commonly deployed today.
