Hope am not cross posting;
Am wondering if MX80 supports 10GE BIDI XFP.
If you want to know whether MX 80 supports bidirectional GE SFP - then yes, it does support for GE SFP.
With respect to 10GE BIDI XSFP, I do not think MX 80 supports 10GE bidirectional XSFP.
The list of supported transceivers for MX 80 categorized based on speed are in the link below hyperlink:

Hope this helps.

Juniper MX80 just supports 10G SFP+ BIDI (not XFPs), the Juniper P/Ns are JNP-SFP-10G-BX10D and JNP-SFP-10G-BX10U. You can find the datasheets here:
Please note that these are only supported with the MIC-MACSEC-20GE, starting with JUNOS 18.3R1.
It is absolutely possible that 3rd party BIDI XFPs or SFP+ are working in any other ports or MICs, it is just not supported by Juniper, but this does not mean that it is not working.
It is always a good idea to try this out in a lab to make sure it works before putting it into production.
The MX80 does not officially supports 10G XFP bidi transceivers... but go to a 3rd party supplier and they can make it work. I have personally used 10G XFP bidi transceivers on MX80 with transceivers from fs.com and Addon/Prolabs.
