CWDM on 3850-12S or 3850-24S

Hi

Does anyone know if the CWDM optics are supported on the 3850-12S or 3850-24S switches (i.e. 12 or 24 SFP ports) - on the fixed SFP ports? On the SFP compatibility matrix it only lists compatibility for the C3850-NM-4-1G module. It looks like the compatibility matrix is not up to date as it doesn't even list compatibility for the 12S or 24S switches even for standard SX SFP's...

Cheers

Go HERE.  According to the document CWDM is supported on the C3850-NM-4-1G only.

Hi Leo

I have checked the document - it doesn't list any compatibility for the 12S or 24S switches, so I don't believe it is current (otherwise nothing would be compatible with these switches)

Cheers

Then go HERE and look at Table 10.  This one is a lot more vague because it doesn't mention whether CWDM/DWDM will work on the appliance or on the network module. 

 

If in doubt, either raise a TAC Case or contact your authorized Cisco reseller or your Cisco AM/SE and have the response in writing.

Hi Leo

Thanks again... unfortunately I agree, the data sheet isn't very specific.

 

Has anyone actually used / tested the CWDM optics on the 3850 12S or 24S switches?

Cheers

Hi

 

I logged a TAC case a few days ago, they have confirmed support for the CWDM optics and the compatibility matrix page has now been updated

Thanks for taking the time to provide everyone else the feedback and update.  :)
