Connecting a Cable to a 10GE Port

Connecting a Cable to a 10GE Port

Connect an optical cable or SFP+ cable to a 10GE port. Before the connection, determine the cable type and ensure that the cable to be connected is of the same model as the one to be replaced or is compatible with the server.

The following tools are available:

  • Phillips screwdriver: used to tighten screws
  • ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves: used to prevent ESD damage


  1. Check the new network model.
  2. Number the new cable.

    • The new cable must have the same number as the old one.
    • Use the same type of labels for optical cables. Record the name and number of the local device to be connected on one side of an optical cable and those of the peer device on the other side. Attach a label 2 cm (0.79 in.) away from the end of an optical cable.

  3. Lay out the new cable.

    Lay out the new cable in the same way as the old one. Note the following points:

    • Lay out optical or SFP+ cables in the cabinet according to installation regulations. You are advised to arrange new cables in the same way as existing cables. Ensure that cables are routed neatly and intact.
    • Separate optical or SFP+ cables from power and signal cables when laying out the cables.
    • Bend an optical or SFP+ cable with a bending radius of at least 4 cm (1.57 in.) to prevent damage to core wires. Ensure that the cable is intact. Ensure that optical or SFP+ cables are laid out for easy maintenance and capacity expansion.
    • Bind optical cables with cable ties. Ensure that optical cables are routed straightly and bound neatly and that cable ties are installed at even spacing and fastened properly.

  4. When you use an optical cable:

    1. Remove the old optical cable.

      Remove the old optical cable from the server.

    2. Connect the new optical cable.
    • Connect the new optical cable to the same port as the old one.
    • Connect the optical cable to the optical module securely.
    1. Insert the optical module into the optical port. See step (1) in Figure 3-23.
      Figure 3-23 Connecting an optical cable

    2. Close the latch on the optical module to secure it. See step (2) in Figure 3-23.
    3. Insert the optical cable into the optical module. See step (3) in Figure 3-23.

  5. When you use an SFP+ cable:

    1. Remove the old SFP+ cable.

      Gently push the power connector inwards and pull the latch out to remove the SFP+ cable. See Figure 3-24.

      Do not directly pull the latch out.

      Figure 3-24 Removing an SFP+ cable

    2. Connect the new SFP+ cable.

      Remove the dust-proof cap on the port, and insert the cable connector into the port. See Figure 3-25.


    When you hear a "click" and the cable cannot be pulled out, the connector is secured.

  6. Check that the new cable is properly connected.

    Power on the device, and ping the IP address of the peer device connected over the new cable. If the peer device cannot be pinged, check that the cable is intact or the connector is securely connected.

  7. Bind the new optical cable.

    Bind the new optical cable in the same way as existing optical cables. You can also remove all cable ties and bind all of the optical cables again if necessary.
