License model for X710 when using 10gE

  • Hello,

    if I want to use an X710 with 40Gbit interfaces but insert a 10Gbit sfp.. Will this be licensed under the 10Gbit model?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi @RobertG

    Yes, in the current licensing model, you can use TNSR Business (up to 10Gbps of throughput) on a system with faster interface, but will only get 10Gbps of throughput.

    In the future, there may be technical limitations in the product that cause TNSR Business to not initialize interfaces that are capable of exceeding 10Gbps throughput, so please be aware... We're interested in customer feedback on the best way to handle this, but have not yet landed on a final model for engineering reasons.
