Question: 
What SFP can I use?
Answer: 
SFP optical modules can be plugged into the PTP ports for Ethernet connectivity instead of the electrical RJ45 ports. These ports have been designed for standard SFP 1GE modules and dual-rate SFP+ modules operating at 1GE speed.  Qulsar has verified the operation with modules from leading vendors as shown below:  Finisar: FTRJ8519P1BNL, FCLF-8521-3  Intel: AFBR709DMZ-IN3  Avago: AFBR-709DMZ  Ubiquity: UF-MM-1G FiberStore (FS): SFP1G-LX-31 FiberStore (FS): SFP-1/10GSR-85 (SFP+ dual-rate configured for 1GE) NOTE: SFP Copper modules are also available and will work with Qg 2. The user should be aware that in that case, the PHY is inside the SFP Copper and in most cases will not fully support Synchronous Ethernet feature. In that case, we recommend to use the native electrical RJ45 ports on Qg 2.
