    Hello virtualwalker,




    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.

    Hello virtualwalker,


    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 and Addon/Prolabs.
