I am newer to the exos line and I am curious if the QSFP form factor ports in the rear of the x450-g2 can be used to connect with standard QSFP ports to non-exos switch with QSFP ?

thanks,

Jake

The QSFP ports on the back of the X450-G2 can only be used for stacking with other X450-G2s. They cannot be used as standard ethernet ports.

the x460-g2 can take the VIM-2Q to get 2 QSPF+ ports that can work to 3rd party switches correct ?
