Integrate 10G Ethernet to 10G SFP


I'm looking to integrate 10G ethernet into my current SFP 10G network, but I'm not positive on how to go about it. I'm wondering if I could attach a Netgear XS512EM to my current SPF 10G switch and have everything talk to each other at full speed. Anybody have any suggestions or input? Thanks!

    Shouldn't be an issue to direct attach it to your existing network with fiber via the SFP+ port. Alternatively if you have an open SFP+ you could go with another switch a 10Gb transceiver module and a 10Gb switch thought I much prefer the direct fiber connection. Make sure your network is upgraded with CAT6, preferably CAT6A cables and keep your runs under 180 feet.
