I need a few cables to go from MCX353A-FCBT to a Gnodal Switch 40GBE, but I am not sure if I need QSFP or QSFP+ cables. Has anyone run a similar setup?

Thanks!

I'm not sure that there's actually a difference. I ordered a ton of different cables for more or less the same hardware, and 1 or 2 failed, but I think they were just bad cables. The other ~15 or so have all been fine.

Thanks! So basically go with the cheapest reputable product. I will order a few from Ebay and see how it goes.
