FAQ

What compatible brands of QSFP28 modules are available in FS.COM?

FS offers high quality QSFP28 module that compatible with mainstream brands include Cisco, HP, Juniper, Brocade, Dell, Extreme, H3C, Arista, Huawei, Intel, IBM, Netgear, Ciena, D-Link, Avago, F5 Networks, Avaya, Alcatel-Lucent, Aruba Networks, Allied Telesis, SMC Networks, TRENDnet etc.

What kinds of custom choices are offered in FS.COM?

FS provides custom options such as compatibility (with different brands), transmission distance, operating temperature, label pattern, label colors and etc. And we appreciates any inquiry for customized products and solutions for your specific preference and requirements.

Can FS.COM QSFP28s and patch cables be shipped directly from USA or Europe?

Yes. FS has built warehouses in Seattle, US and Munich, Germany. And we’ve prepared adequate stock of optical transceiver modules and patch cables in both the locations. Generally, customers can enjoy same-day shipping given that all the ordered items are ready in stock.

What makes QSFP28 different from QSFP+?

QSFP28 has the same size form factor and the maximum number of ports as a QSFP+ transceiver, but the lane speeds of QSFP28 are increased from 10 Gbps to 25 Gbps. It’s made specifically for large scale data centers and carriers to scale to 100G Ethernet.

Can QSFP28 interoperate with 100GBASE-SR10?

No. The QSFP28 has just 4 electrical lanes, which is not enough to support 10 lanes of 10G electrical interface. A QSFP28 can only support 4x25G electrical interface but not 10x 10GbE. As a result the QSFP28 cannot interoperate with SR10 based 100GbE transceivers.

Which 100G QSFP28 transceiver can be used in breakout mode?

Breakout mode refers to running multiple ports at lower speeds. Currently there are three types of QSFP28 modules supporting 4x25G breakout mode: QSFP-100G-SR4, QSFP-100G-PSM4 and QSFP-100G-CR4.
