Hello, James!

You can use X670
I don't think any purple switches can meet your config requirements. You technically might be able to get there an x460-G2 and the VIM-2q module with fan out cables, but that isn't really what you're asking for.

The X460-G2 with the VIM-2q module cannot actually be fanned out to 8 1G ports. The QSFP ports can be used at 1G, but the switch itself does not support more than 2 ports on the VIM module, so these 40G ports cannot be used as 8 1G ports.

I was referring to using QSFP to 4x10G SFP+ fan out cables, not 1G. Are you saying you can't use fan out cables with the x460?

I mistyped 1G instead of 10G.

Check out the 7100 series, in particular a 7124, which is 24 ports of 1/10gig SFP+ ports (plus 4 10/40gig QSFP ports). Load your appropriate SFP+ optics in and then load in RJ45 SFP transceivers for your copper 1 gig ports. The part number for the copper transceivers is MGBIC-02 and the optics would be in the 10GB-xx-SFPP series, where xx is SR, LR, or ER.

James,

As AlexandrP mentioned, you need a Summit X670 switch (either X670-48x, X670V-48x or X670-G2-48x-4q) with 12 10/100/1000Base-T SFP transceivers (these will only operate at 1G). This is a 48-port switch, so you will have an additional 24 SFP+ ports, but is the only one that will give you the port combination you need.
thank you all for the suggestions!
