Twinax Cable for PA-5000

L1 Bithead

Hello everyone,

Has anyone installed an PA-5000 series (PA-5020 and PA-5050) with a standard twinax wire? I want to connect a PA-5020 and PA-5050 to a Juniper SW with a twinax cable (EX-SFP-10GE-DAC-5m), and I want to know if it is possible or if anyone has tried it (with a third party and a standard cable)...

Thanks for your help,

Is Twinax wire is like Twisted pair cable.

The only reason for your cable doesn't work could be incompatibility between palo and twinax gbic. There is only two supplier in the world then ...

I didn't try that yet but ... no reason for doesn't work.

Different vendors have different way of doing it.

For example in Cisco, to disable the supported checking for optics here is the command:

Router > configure terminal

Router(config) # service unsupported-transceiver

Some thing like that may be needed on Juniper switch to accept the communication, may be.
