The combo ports can be used alongside the set of 8 regular 10G RJ45 ports whenever you feel the need to alternate between 10G RJ45 Ethernet or 10G SFP+, when you need an additional fiber connection.


It should be noted that the ports on this MikroTik switch can also be software selected, meaning RouterOS scripting can be utilized by more seasoned network managers, to decide which combo ports will be active.
