No, the QFX3500 only supports 10Gb and 40Gb interfaces.  Also, as of the moment, the 40Gb interfaces are only usable as QFabric uplinks, or as 4 x 10Gb (via breakout cable) interfaces, not as native 40Gb Ethernet.

Thanks, follow up--data sheet specifies 1gbe connects, how does that fit to your reply?

The 10Gb interfaces are actually multi-media in that some of them can be 1Gbps (via SFP), and some of them can also be fiber-channel.
