Thank you for your reply Suraj. Do see however that the module is supported at 10GE as per the picture above and the spec sheet for the transceivers.
I have some other questions if you'd be able to assist and guide me in the right direction. What would be a more cost effective replacement to facilitate my goal? the 100F is far beyond my budget layout.
The other question is (Pardon my lack of experience with Forti products) would it be possible for me to combine multiple interfaces to create a nic team to get the desired result of 10ge?
