1G/10G SFP+ card

  • In my searching I haven't been able to find a good solution for this situation. They are going to start work this spring on city wide fiber. It sounds like TDS does fiber to the home. If that is the case, it would be nice to have the option to connect it directly to my router. From what I’ve been able to find GPON SFP+ transceivers are not a thing. It also sounds like some cards are picky about what transceivers you use and don’t accept 1G transceivers. I am will probably be adding a 10G switch to my network in the near future as well. So, what I’m wondering is if there is a dual nic card that would work to have a fiber WAN in one port and the 10G switch in the other?

    First wait what your ISP will actually install/require and then buy something that really fits/works.

  • @grimson That is a good point. The main reason I'm asking now is the potential addition of the 10G switch in the near future. I'm trying to figure out if it will be solely an isolated storage switch or it I want to route it. I only have one pcie slot in my router. So, if I add a SFP+ card, I would like to get one that has the greatest chance of also working with a fiber WAN.
