Router/Switch Notes
VoyagerESR 2.0 Cisco ESS3300 Switch component
VoyagerVM 3.0
TDC Switch
TRX R2 (8-Core)

Transceivers, cables

The following copper SFP+ (10 Gbps) transceivers and cables are strongly recommended for use with Azure Stack Edge Mini R devices. Compatible fiber-optic cables can be used with SFP+ network interfaces (Port 3 and Port 4) but have not been tested.

SFP+ transceiver type Supported cables Notes
SFP+ Direct-Attach Copper (10GSFP+Cu)
  • Also known as SFP+ Twinax DAC cables.

  • Recommended option because it has lowest power usage and is simplest.

  • Autonegotiation is not supported.

  • Connecting an SFP device to an SFP+ device is not supported.

Power supply unit

The Azure Stack Edge Mini R device includes an external 85 W AC adapter to supply power and charge the onboard battery.

The following table shows the power supply unit specifications:

Specification Value
Maximum output power 85 W
Frequency 50/60 Hz
Voltage range selection Auto ranging: 100-240 V AC

Included battery

The Azure Stack Edge Mini R device also includes an onboard battery that is charged by the power supply.

An additional Type 2590 battery can be used along with the onboard battery to extend the use of the device between the charges. This battery should be compliant with all the safety, transportation, and environmental regulations applicable in the country of use.

Specification Value
Onboard battery capacity 73 Wh
