I am trying to connect a new server using 10Gb through fiber to my extreme switch x670v-48t. We are using 10G MM SFP SR. The question to connect the port in the switch with the server no patch panel in the middle do I require a straight cable or patch cable (cross)?

If you are trying to connect switch to server without any patch panel then we just need fiber cable. There is no straight or cross with fiber cable.

Hi Arturo,

you need to "cross" the cable, that is connect the transmitter of each SFP+ to the receiver of the other.

Ram is correct that there is no special "cross" fiber cable, you usually need to cross it yourself.
