I just want to make absolutely sure .... but I am correct in assuming that NONE of Huawei's Switches are supplied with any (Q)SFPs as default?

For instance the CE6810-32T16S4Q-LI Switch The documentation says "16*10GE SFP+ ports, 4*40GE QSFP+ ports", so does this switch come or not come with all required SFP's pre-installed??

Thanks for the help.

As far as I know Huawei or actually any other vendor's switches come with no SFPs installed. It's a common practice among vendors because they don't know your needs in terms of interconnect links in advance.

Thanks, PiotrekRGC,

I guess your reply is correct. I come from the storage environment where various switches are supplied as part of solutions and as such some already contain SFP's as the interconnect links are determined in advance as per design of the solution.

Hi Mark,

No. Huawei's Campus and CE switches does not come with the (Q)SFPs pre-installed. Not sure for the Huawei SAN switches though (SNS series). Haven't ordered them before.
