Maestro uplink bond, mix media type?

Hello CheckMates,

is it supported to mix the media type of transceivers in a bond for uplink connection?

Meaning one with DAC and another with singlemode LR or any other combination.

Of course it is. Otherwise it wouldn't be possible to connect a MHO (dual-site) to a local and a remote core-switch for redundancy.
Therefore I'm running an uplink bond with these two connection types:

  • CPAC-DAC-100G-5M -100GbE QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper Cable 5 Meter
  • CPAC-TR-100CWDM4 transceiver - QSFP28 transceiver module for 100G fiber ports CWDM4 2Km

Thanks @Danny 

Just to clarify, I want to know this for the connections to the external switch environment not the connectivity between MHO and gateways.

As long as you speeds are the same, you should be just fine and connections between switches are just what they are, connections between switches. So if the switches support that, which I would expect they do, you should be in the clear.
