passive twinax cables for VNX 5300 10Gb iSCSI module

does anyone know if there is support for passive twinax now for 10Gb iSCSI I/O modules?  I need to connect a VNX 5300 to Cisco UCS 6248 fabric interconnects but the cisco bundle only comes with passive cables.

No that hasn't changed

Probably won't since 10GbaseT copper cards will be released soon

TwinAx Passive cables are yet not supported on the VNX models . Its only the active ones.

Have a broader look : http://www.emc.com/collateral/hardware/white-papers/h8217-introduction-vnx-wp.pdf

found this thread ...  Looks like VNXe does not support TwinAX anyway ( its need RPQ for it )
