Cisco SFPs

    Does anyone actually buy Cisco's SFPs? We always buy OEM complaint 1,10 and 40GB SFPs. I'm guessing Cisco doesn't make theirs anyway just has an authorizing chip and they are all made the same. You do have to enable non-cisco ones as they are turned off buy defualt. But has anyone actually found a reason to buy cisco's own? ex 40GB QSFP+ from Cisco is $1,500 from a OEM it's about $150

    I kind of think we do. I'll have to look downstairs. There is a box of them somewhere.



  • Interesting.

    I'm about to use a few different SFP(+)s with HP and UBNT equipment. A reseller I've contacted tells me that they are suppose to be all compatible, but... yeah we know how that often turns out.

    My 1 GB fiber SFP (10Gtek) just arrived this morning. I plan to put it in a EdgeSwitch and connect it to an HP with a HP SFP.
