Can I use the optical transceiver SFP+ ODX042501 of X2CS uplink board on the Switch that the port is 10GE?
If you're asking if you can plug that optic into a SFP+ slot on a switch, it depends on the switch. Many major brands (Cisco, Dell, HP) check for "magic footprints" in the pluggable optics, so the switch only works with optics from them, or some place that has figured out the brand-specific "magic footprints". Here is a listing for one of those vendors that will do the brand-specific coding.

If that wasn't the question you were asking, please provide specifics and I'll try to answer you.
