Solution to your 10G Copper

10GBase-T words sm

Almost five years after SFP+ form factor 10Gbps transceivers emerged in volume, usable 10GBASE-T SFP+ transceivers are finally becoming available. While 10GBASE-T ports are quite commonplace on Network Interface Cards (NICs) and on a variety of network appliances (firewalls, storage devices, etc.), they are quite uncommon on the switches and routers to which many of these servers and appliance would like to connect. The reason is that these interfaces have consumed far too much power to operate in pluggable SFP+ slots. Of course this mismatch has led to numerous connectivity problems. All of the fixed 10BASE-T to SFP+ 10G ports cases (shown in blue) in the figure below have been impossible without some kind of external device, perhaps an expensive media converter, involved.

With the availability of copper 10G SFP+ modules, all of the above scenarios are straightforward. Simply plug the 10GBASE-T SFP+module in an available slot and connect with a CAT-6A/7 cable.
