As we all know, Ubiquiti is a famous company that provides various kinds of switches, including Edge Switch, Edge Router, UniFi Switch. What does attract more attention is, this company firstly published its own SFP and SFP+ fiber optic transceiver, compatible with its switches last year. Meanwhile, it also published that third-party fiber transceivers from some fiber optic transceiver manufacturers like Cisco, Brocade and FS.COM are compatible with the Ubiquiti switches, too. In this paper, it will mainly talk about which kinds of third-party fiber transceivers can support the Ubiquiti switches and which fiber optic transceiver manufacturers can offer the most reliable third-party fiber transceivers.
Ubiquiti mainly provides switches for 1G and 10G Ethernet network. Until last year, they began to offer a small amount of single mode and multimode fiber transceivers to support the Ubiquiti switches. For instance, the UF-MM-1G and UF-SM-1G-S 1000Base SFP transceivers are used for the SFP ports on the Ubiquiti switches, while the UF-MM-10G, UF-SM-10G and UF-SM-10G-S 10GBase SFP+ transceivers are designed for connecting the SFP+ ports on the Ubiquiti switches.
Apart from their own fiber transceivers, there are also some other branded fiber transceivers tested on the Ubiquiti switches and confirmed to be compatible with Ubiquiti switches, such as Cisco, Brocade, Dell, HP, Finisar branded fiber transceivers. Just taking Cisco, the world famous fiber optic transceiver manufacturer as an example, it offers six kinds of SFP transceivers to support the Ubiquiti switches, Cisco GLC-LH-SM 30-1299-01 SFP, Cisco GLC-SX-MM, Cisco GLC-SX-MM 1000BASE-SX SFP, Cisco SFP-H10GB-CU1M, Cisco MGBSX1 Gigabit SX Mini-GBIC SFP Transceiver and Cisco GLC-T. Besides, for 10G network, the Cisco SFP-10G-SR can be inserted in SFP+ ports on the Ubiquiti switches.
After aquiring these basic information of transceivers for Ubiquiti switches, here also offers FS.COM transceiver solutions for Ubiquiti switches. FS.COM, a third-party fiber transceiver manufacturer, offers various kinds of SFP and SFP+ transceivers to support the Ubiquiti switches, such as, SFP1G-LX-31 1310nm (single mode SFPs), SFP-1G85-5M (multi-mode), SFP-GB-GE-T module, SFP-10G85-3M (multi-mode). These mentioned transceivers have been spoken highly of by many users at FS.COM.
From the text above, we can learn that except for their own transceivers, there are also many third-party fiber transceivers designed for supporting the Ubiquiti switches, for instance, Cisco, Brocade and FS.COM. Then here comes an important question, which kind of third-party fiber transceiver is more reliable for the Ubiquiti switches? In this paper, the suggestion is FS.COM fiber transceiver and the following will give you the reasons.
The first reason is that there are enough SFP and SFP+ transceivers offered for their corresponding Ubiquiti switches and those SFP and SFP+ transceivers have been tested to be suitable for the Ubiquiti switches. The second reason is that the SFP and SFP+ transceivers offered FS.COM are of high quality and good price. If you have ever bought the SFP and SFP+ transceivers with low price from some other fiber optic transceiver manufacturers, you may experience the quality of those fiber transceivers which generally can’t be assured. But in FS.COM test center, each fiber transceiver offered by FS.COM before shipping has to go through strict test on the switches from Cisco, Dell, Extreme, Juniper and other famous brands to assure 100% compatibility and high performance. Here offers the figures that shows the feedback about the quality and price for FS.COM fiber transceivers from users.
When choosing SFP and SFP+ transceivers for your Ubiquiti switches, have you ever hesitated over which fiber optic transceiver manufacturer should be chosen? Buy from Ubiquiti? Or other third-party fiber transceiver manufacturer? In fact, the selection should be made after considering the quality and price of the transceiver and the after-sales service the fiber transceiver manufacturer offers. Taking these factors into consideration, FS.COM should be a good choice for meeting your fiber transceiver needs.
