  1. Good find, thanks for sharing.

    I'm a little disappointed to see the 2232TM uplink described as "8x10G SFP+"

    I'd hoped that the removable uplink module might have a 40G or 100G future. Seeing it described as SFP+ is a bit disappointing.

    OTOH, we're looking at a 5K platform (and code) which can only link to the current uplink module, so maybe there is hope after all.

  2. well this post is good. thanks for sharing such an good post.
