You'll see on the MX250 product page (at the bottom) it lists compatible SFP's.

Hi Jrivano,

I do not see a challenge here, we are using 1G SFP's in SFP+ slots for few of our customers.

Yes that is possible.  I try to avoid doing that when I can just use one of the built-in copper ports but I've done it for sure at sites where I don't have many spare ports.

Hey all,

 

You can find complete SFP compatibility on this page:

https://meraki.cisco.com/lib/pdf/meraki_datasheet_sfp.pdf

 

On the right hand we have marked the models compatible with each SFP type.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: MX250 WAN Port -SPF Compatibility

i think the point has been missed here, what is being asked is can you use the SFP-1GB-SX in the 10G wan ports, or do you have to use a SFP-10G-SR in those 2 ports? yes the MX250 can take SFP-1GB-SX but can they be used in tho 10G WAN interface on the MX250 rather than the normal ports
