The Cisco TwinGig Converter Module (model CVR-X2-SFP), also known as a
converter module, is a hot-swappable input/output (I/O) device that slides into a
10-Gigabit Ethernet X2 slot on a switch. It converts the 10-Gigabit X2 interface
into a dual SFP interface. It was developed for the Catalyst 3560-E switch but is
supported on other platforms. The converter module is shown in
