Cisco compatible 100Gbe Optics


searching out comments from oldsters who have examined or are walking cisco well matched 100gbe optics in some of the newer product including the nexus 93180yc-ex and catalyst c9500-48y4c. use of one and 10gbe 1/3 birthday party optics appears to be fairly not unusual and occasional hazard, and we've got had good revel in in our testing with cisco well suited optics from wondering, although, approximately the qsfp28 optics. have you ever had precise experience with third birthday celebration? if yes, with which optic company? if no, can you difficult on issues that you encountered? for your enjoy, does cisco's 0.33 celebration optic position / policy exchange when you get beyond 10gbe optics?

putting together a undertaking that can require 15 - 20 of these optics, and the price distinction between cisco (after discount) and third celebration is extensive. would really like to consider going 0.33 birthday party and stocking a couple cisco-branded spares.

We haven't used Cisco-branded optics (SFP/SFP+, QSFP, etc.) for a long, long time.

your not the only one -- may other vendors, much cheaper, similiar MTBF and works great
