2.5G port hardware compatibility

Tue Feb 16, 2021 11:20 am

Hi, in france, an internet provider (free) provide Server with 2.5 Gb copper port. I have an hex S, i can choose 2.5Gb in Interface but i think MT7621 is only with1gb ports. I m looking for a mikrotik hardware with 2.5Gb ports, but there's nothing easy to find. I have looking for in the product_matrix files but nothing...

Do you have an idea for me ?
Regards

Hi there
Not sure if your intention is to cable with fiber to devices or use copper cages and transfer to ethernet cable.
How many devices do you have that can use SFP ports/speeds?

That helps, also the cable from the ISP modem/ont to the Mikrotik, would this be copper or fiber cable?

Assuming you need a router, you need something with an SFP+ cage and use a copper SFP+ like the S+RJ10 in it. Cheapest option is a RB4011, cheapest with multiple ports is a CCR2004.

Switches with 10G copper ports will also do 2.5G.
