Ted,

The third party optics software licenses are platform specific licenses that are required to fully utilize 40G/100G third party optic.

I was a bit confused on this one.  Is there any reason I have to buy Extreme gbics as opposed to a different set?

The third party 40G/100G optics are likely tested. This will come at a greater cost than testing Extreme Networks branded 40G/100G.

Andrew what about 1G gibics/transceivers.  We don't have 40G/100G gear yet.

No license is needed for third party 1G transceivers.
