Re: 3rd Party Cisco CWDM GBICs?

Look into Finisar.

I believe Finisar is the OEM for the Cisco CWDM GBIC's as they look identical (With the obvious exception of the label)

They have 16 Lambda's available

Hi List,
Cisco currently provides 8 lambdas for CWDM and we have a 10 lambda
mux/de-mux system we want to make use of over a single fibre (5 data
channels).  The 1430 and 1450nm lambdas are dark and I was wondering if
there are any 3rd party vendors out there that have produced Cisco
compatible GBICs for these wavelengths.  I have looked around and seen
Finisar does make Cisco GBICs, but not in the 1430/1450 lambdas.
Have a look at Optoway ( I did not yet test their CWDM GBICs but I'm about to use their BiDI GBICs which come with great distance granularity and excellent price.
