The full SKU of the original cards was QLE8242-CU-CK (dual port copper).
 The replacements were the same, but SR instead of CU.  Here's a quick link
of detail on these cards --

.

The copper cables/SFPs were Cisco's SFP-H10GB-CU5M and SFP-H10GB-CU3M,
which are listed on QLogic's list of approved cables:

.

I had a comment regarding the TCO of a Nexus 5548 w/ full SR SFPs vs.
copper  and yes, this is a significant cost increase, so be aware of that!
 Hopefully you're not paying retail for them :-), even w/ our discount it
was substantial.
