100G QSFP28 interfaces

On platforms that include 100G interface ports, you can use only F5-branded 100G QSFP28 transceiver modules in those ports.
When a 100G interface operates at either 40G and 100G speeds, it is considered to be
the r10000/r12000 platform, the 100G ports (1, 2, 11, and 12)
default to 100G. The cable that you use when operating at 100G with 100GBASE-SR4 transceiver modules is an industry-standard OM4 qualified multi-mode fiber optic cable with female MPO/MTP connectors at both ends. The cable that you use with 100GBASE-LR4 transceiver modules is an industry-standard SMF fiber optic cable with LC duplex connectors and a reach of up to 10km. You must provide your own cable and F5-branded QSFP28 transceiver modules for 100G operation.
