love how we've had ethernet link-speed autonegociation on 10M/100M/1G for decades but fucking SFP+ can't autoneg between 1G and 10G (not to speak of 40G and 100G) like...


That has nothing to with the sfps. More likely it has something to do with cisco. 10GbE SFPs can be programmed to do 100/1000/10000 and even Fibre Channel.
