Re: RB4011

I can not use fiber because of my existing cables. The only one problem with RB4011 is the high working temperature of the SFP+ module. So I assume you use longer copper cables if replacement would be problematic? What cable length do you use? I was always interested in actual maximum cable length ...

You can mount two CRS112 in 1U right? Since they're exactly half U?

It measures 200mm wide (7.875 inch). Would be nice to have a 1U case that holds both.
You can mount each one using 1 ear.
