The Cisco® UCS Fabric Interconnect family does not support generic 3rd party transceivers since they do not offer CLI access.
This has left Cisco® UCS customers the one option of purchasing overly expensive Cisco® OEM branded optical transceivers. IVI Optics solves this problem and brings economical transceiver options to Cisco® UCS customers. IVI Optics encodes their transceivers with the appropriate EEPROM compatibility information to ensure Cisco® UCS Fabric Interconnect compatibility.
The Cisco® UCS Manager screen shot below shows an IVI Optics 40G QSFP40G-SR4-C-IV that is recognized as a QSFP-40G-SR4 compatible 40G QSFP transceiver in a Cisco® 6332-16up Fabric Interconnect.
All IVI Optics transceivers are backed by the IVI Optics® Premium 5 year warranty.
