I need to build a test environment to communicate with a hardware device that has a 10Gbe comms port and that uses a SFP+ connector.

So I need a 10Gbe NIC for a Windows/Linux PC, and that NIC should have a SFP+ connector.

Would anyone like to recommend a suitable NIC please?

The cable length will only be a few metres. Should I use fiber or copper?

As I will not be using a switch (due to the high cost of 10Gbe switches) I guess I need to use a crossover cable. Is this possible with SFP+ compatible cables?

Best regards
