S+RJ10 Revisions

Tue Nov 27, 2018 3:49 pm

Doing some labtests with CRS317/2xCRS305/Multiple S-RJ01/Multiple S+RJ10/S+DA0001 with 6.44beta28.

Seems there are different Revisions showing different SFP-Parameters. But it is not clear what is real.

Only one S+RJ10 shows temperature,Supply Voltage and Advertised/Link Partner Advertised speed. Changing advertised speeds does not change anything (Even advertised speed). Only this module shows correct 1Gbps negotiation when there is a S-RJ01 on the other side. All other S+RJ10 modules show always 10Gbps.

So seems there are different S+RJ10 Modules out there. The better module has Manufacturing Date 18-08-30 Vendor Revision 2.07. The older with wrong reporting are Revision 1.0.

Sorry for digging up this thread. Meanwhile the RJ10 product page lists the new revision as also supporting jumbo frames (the old one did not).

I have 3 rev1 modules and 1 rev2 (happely working together). Is there a way to trade/flash/... the rev1 modules to rev2?

Unfortunately no, because transceiver hardware differs.

Even rev2 is old. The actual are rev3.

Interesting, I had a discussion about this after my CRS309 video last week. I was testing, including jumbo frames and it was working fine and he said it was impossible.

All that I can add to this discussion is that module revision 2.11 manufactured 2018-12-06 works well. Tested it with 1Gbit Intel NIC connections (GUI reports 1Gbit connection in status window) and 10Gbit connections through 35m of CAT7 to an Intel x540 with full 10Gbit speed. I also inserted the S+RJ10 into a Mellanox ConnextX-3 and in there I was also able to get the full 10Gbit connected to a S+RJ10 in the CRS309.

I know hardware manufacturers don't like to do this but if Mikrotik could put up a list on the S+RJ10 information page what changed with what revision, it would prevent a whole lot of troubleshooting and testing!

p.s. My serial number ends with r2, does that mean it's a revision 2? Or is this the revision 3 you mentioned because it's the newest version I see posted here and the date is quite "young".

I have no r3. I have r1 and r2. r2 did show some more sfp info. Both can't handle frames big enough for mpls. Don't remember exactly but I think it was 1504 byte frames max. Test if you are able to handle bigger packets.
