Compatible Matrix for 10Gtek QSFP+ Cable
Some brands of systems are encrypted due to their exclusiveness to third-party products, so cables for these systems need special coding inside to realize their compatibility with these systems. Here are some of the compatibility testing records for 10GTEK's QSFP+ cables:
Cisco system is encrypted and requires Cisco coding. 10gtek's compatible testing result: Working
Cisco compatible QSFP+ products are USD25/pc higher in price than other brands-compatible QSFP+ products.
Extremes system is encrypted and requires Extreme coding. 10gtek's compatible testing result: Working
Extreme compatible QSFP+ products are USD15/pc higher in price than other brands-compatible QSFP+ products.
Arista system is encrypted and requires Arista coding. 10gtek's compatible testing result: Working
Force10, Juniper, IBM, HP Storage, EMC, DELL, SUN, Emulex, NetApp, Mellanox, Q-Logic support our Standard OEM coding.
For other brands such as H3C, HP ProCurve, Brocade, Blade, since we are lack of relative testing environment, currently the compatibility is uncertain. We are scheduled to buy/borrow original QSFP+ cables from those brands and solve the compatibility issue soon.
We tried to make a compatible matrix as clear as possible, but still, many details are hard to include. The
actual compatibility performance is subject to the real working situation.
10GTEK's QSFP+ products include:
40GBASE-SR4, 40GBASE-IR4 and 40GBASE-LR4 QSFP+ Optical Modules
40GBASE QSFP+ Active Optical Cables (QSFP+ AOC)
40GBASE QSFP+ to 4 SFP+ (10GBASE) Breakout cables
40GBASE QSFP+ to 4 XFP (10GBASE) Breakout cables
40GBASE QSFP+ to QSFP+ direct-attach Cables
For the above products which involve 2 kinds of connectors (such as QSFP+ to 4 XFP breakout cable, QSFP+ to 4 XFP breakout cable), when ordering, pls specify the brand of systems that will link with the two connectors separately, e.g. QSFP+ for Cisco and XFP for Juniper, so that no confusion is caused.
About Compatibility: (Take Cisco as an example)
10GTEK's QSFP+ Cables can Meet compatibility* with Cisco System. 10GTEK's QSFP+ products are 100% tested under CISCO NEXUS 3000 SWITCHES. "Meet Compatibility*" means: WORKING with systems, without link or identification problems. Please note: To "meet Compatibility*" with system, we need to modify the EEPROM information, without short notice.
