Syed Arshad,

It is possible that these Gigabit transceivers will work on EXOS switches; however, if possible put the optic in an EXOS switch and with a cable connected run the following command and provide the output.

debug hal show optic-info ddmi port <port#>

This output will provide some additional output.

I do not have them with me. 

Did you try using them and they worked fine ?

You should try them yourself, in most cases 3rd party transceivers work well

There was a display issue is earlier firmware that would report "not supported " on some transceivers but that has been addressed so it is always a good point to upgrade but if the traffic passes without any issues you should be good to go.

The release notes are the go to documentation for these questions.  If it is listed in a release as supported then it should be. If there are issues let us know.
