1. Eight 10GBASE-T RJ45 ports

10GBASE-T RJ45 port

The ES5D21X08T00 provides eight 10GBASE-T RJ-45 electrical ports. The first four electrical ports support only 10 Gbit/s. The last four electrical ports support only 10 Gbit/s in versions earlier than V200R019C00, and also support 100 Mbit/s and 1000 Mbit/s in auto-negotiation mode in V200R019C00 and later versions. When the ports work at 10 Gbit/s, Category 6A shielded Ethernet cables are recommended. Table 8-144 lists the attributes of a 10GBASE-T RJ45 port.
