I'm wondering if anyone has any experience using OEM 10Gbps SFP+ optics? I'm guessing that any link issues will be met with a, "You aren't using a supported optic" response by support. Other than that, has anyone actually had any issues with compatibility/reliability/longevity? If it matters, we have a mixture of x460s, x670s and soon adding some x460-G2s.
The Extreme Networks branded optics at >$1000. The same model number (Minus the -EX suffix), Finisar branded optics are $180.
It's hard to justify spending >$1000 for a single optic when you can buy the same thing for <$200.
