SFP+ Cards

  • Hello all,

    Looking to purchase compatible SFP+ card for my pfSense system.

    What else would be recommended / fully compatible besides: T520-SO-CR ?
    ( Also, if any1 can provide recommendation where to get in Canada, would be thankful).

    This would be used with ES-16-XG switch.

    Thank you!

  • Hi, Intel cards work good from what I have tested.

    Take a look at eBay. :)

  • Thank you for replying! Appreciate it.

    Right now looking into: Intel Dell X520-DA2 , it appears that this one is fully compatible ? (At least from the re-search right now) , should be plug and play.

    I found one on Ebay, Canadian Seller, around $160 CAD.

    Many recommend Chelsio, its expensive here, and appears to be running much hotter compared to Intel?

    Thank you!

  • I have a pfsense cluster with dell server and this cards. It runs for a year. Routing between 12 vlans for a year now. Totally perfect.

  • Thank you thesurf again!

  • Works like a charm , thank you thesurf once again.

  • no problem you are welcome.

  • I know you are asking for something other than a Chelsio card, however, I have been running a Chelsio T50-SO-CR 2-Port SFP+ card without issue for approximately a year. It was simply plug and play with my Supermicro X10SDV-8C-TLN4F board.

    This card has been working with pfSense v2.4.3 and prior versions without issue.

    The left port is connected to a Meraki Switch and the right port is connected to a Cisco Switch. Everything works great.
