    Hi,

    Can someone please let me know, how do i find out if the SFP is dual fiber or single fiber by the juniper SFP part number or specifications.

    I require both dual fiber and single fiber SFP for 10G and range 10KM

    Juniper only does a dual fiber 10G 10km single-mode optic: EX-SFP-10G-LR. single fiber (bidi) are available for 1G.

     

    If you require a single fiber (bidi) 10G optic, you have to look into thirdparty vendors to solve this need - but it will work so you can easily go in that direction 🙂

    Hi Jonas ,

    I wasn't expecting some one to resolve the query this soon, I will let this be the solution unless someone points out single fiber SFP for 10GbE.

    Thanks alot for the information.

     

    Regards,

    Hi Mannan,

     

    there is no performance impact of using 3rd party optics.

     

    Regarding which optic for MIC-3D-4XGE-XFP. This MIC has 4 XFP-slots which is a different form factor than SFP+.

     

    You could eg. use Prolabs EX-XFP-10GE-BXD-20KM-C and EX-XFP-10GE-BXU-20KM-C. Please be aware with bidi optics they need to be in pairs as transmit/receive wavelengths has to match. In this case you can see tx/rx on the SKU description from Prolabs. Other vendors has similar optics available, use your google-foo to find these. Prolabs are just my personal go-to-vendor 🙂

     

     EX-XFP-10GE-BXD-20KM-C  10GBASE-BXD XFP, Tx1330nm/Rx1270nm, 20km 
     EX-XFP-10GE-BXU-20KM-C  10GBASE-BXU XFP, Tx1270nm/Rx1330nm, 20km 

     

    Please remember to kudo if you can use the answer...

    I've found that Champion Optics work well in the MX, EX and ACX line gear and offer a wide variety of BiDi options.
