So the systems I am using are MX960 MPC7e.
When I use the 1meter 100G DAC I have zero errors + zero packet loss.
When I use the 3meter 100G DAC cables I have packet loss & framing errors. I tried 3 DAC cables on 2 different sets of routers…all MX960 MPC7e.
These are 3rd party DAC cables, all from the same place, but what I do not understand is why the 1M cables work and the 3M are giving me errors. The only difference between the cables that I have noticed is that the 3M are 28AWG and the 1M are 30AWG.
Any ideas as to what the issue is? I would think it was just a bad cable, but all 3 of them seems a little strange.
