Copper transceiver modules

Copper transceiver modules transmit signals over Category-5, -5e, -6, and -6a unshielded twisted pair (UTP). UTP transmission cover shorter distances than fiber transmission and can be used in small-sized networks only. 10G over twisted pair requires the use of Category 6 and 6a.

Copper transceivers are supported in 1G SFP and 10G SFP+ ports where listed in the compatibility tables.
