Finisar Transciver supported by Brocade TurboIron TI-24X-AC ?

Hi Community,

I would like to know if the Finisar 10G Transceiver is working and supported at the TuroIron TI23X-AC switch? I am not able to find some documents about the certification of oem SFP's for Brocade switches...

Could someone help me with this issue?

Type of SFP:

Finisar’s FTLX8571D3BCL 10Gb/s SFP+ transceivers

should work in:

TurboIron TI-24X-AC

Kindly regards

Michael

i believe they should. is there any specific error you are running into? are you trying to enable optical monitoring and it's not working?

"OEM Optic" 1G SFP transceivers are working fine in my Brocade FCXs, but they don't seem to support optical monitoring.

hi;

does the part # read OM?

if it doesn't read OM, then optical monitor is not supported on it.

the parts that support OM are:

E1MG-LX-OM =  1000Base-LX SFP optic, SMF, LC connector, Optical Monitoring Capable

or

E1MG-SX-OM = 

1000Base-SX SFP optic, MMF, LC connector, Optical Monitoring Capable

Hi spandya1,

     My understanding is the OM is only supported on the Brocade/Foundry branded optics that do have -om on the part number.  3rd party optics even if capable of OM will work but without the any OM support.

Thanks

Michael.

you are right.

finisar optics, are from foundry times...so their OM functionality should work with brocade.
