SFP Compatibility

Hi 

 

I have got 3 firewalls. 5050 and (3020-1 & 3020 -2 HA pair). We are trying to replace the core 6500 switch with meraki 425. and we have got the MA-sfp-10gb-sr and we need to look for supported sfp in palo side. I found one good fit as PAN-SFP-PLUS-SR (AFBR-709SMZ ). from online. But, I am not sure that whether one end witht the cisco sfp and one with the other will it work ? any ideas ? any OS or platform related release notes precaution?

 

Thanks

Re: SFP Compatibility

As long as you're using an official PAN SFP and the other side is configured with something compatible you'll be fine. 3rd Party transceivers on a PAN device might work, but aren't officially supported. 

 

It can be a challenge (putting it lightly) trying to troubleshoot an issue when using a 3rd party part, so there's a policy about that:

There's a PDF of the specs on the various transceivers here. It's broken down by platform, so it should make it fairly short work to review:
