Best cost option to connect MX250 to Cat4510 for 10GB LAN hand-off

I'm new to Meraki and looking to confirm compatibility for 10gb LAN side connection to a Cat 4510.

I thought maybe to use standard Cisco SFP+ optics but I see there seem to be Meraki branded optics available as well.
I'm looking to plan my first install and need to confirm the best low cost option to connect these two devices.

Thank you for any guidance.

Hi @od33 , what’s the distance between the two devices?

 

Take a look at the Meraki direct attach cable -  MA-CBL-TA-3M. Way cheaper than 10Gbps SFPs
