PA-5200 QSFP+/HSCI DAC Cable type



PA writes in his Front Pane description HSCI port "PA-5220 firewall —One QSFP+ 40Gbps port (supports only a 40Gbps (QSFP+) transceiver or QSFP+ active optical cable)." and nothing for the QSFP+ ports.


Does PA-5200 also support 40G QSFP+ DAC Passive Copper Cable and if so on QSFP+ and HSCI Port?


Has anyone tried out?

Hi Robert,


Did you got the answer for this? We are planning to connect PA5220 with DAC cable with our Juniper switches and not getting any confirmed answer.
