Are CE series switches required to use Huawei-certified optical modules

17

CE series switches must use Huawei-certified optical modules. Non-Huawei-certified optical or copper transceiver modules cannot ensure transmission reliability and may degrade service stability. Huawei is not liable for any problems caused by the use of non-Huawei-certified optical modules and will not fix such problems.

To know optical modules that have passed Huawei certification, see section "Optical Modules" in the Hardware Description of CE series switches. All the optical modules listed in this section have been certified by Huawei. You can also call technical support hotline to certify your optical modules.

Other related questions:
On a CE series switch, alarms for non-Huawei-certified optical modules are generated on the optical modules using Huawei trademarks. Why?
Some optical modules early delivered from Huawei may have no vendor information. In this case, non-Huawei-certified optical module alarms are generated. To disable non-Huawei-certified optical module alarms, run the transceiver non-certified-alarm disable command.

How do I determine the optical modules and cables supported by a card or switch
For CE series switches: - To determine the optical modules and cables supported by a card of the CE12800 series switches, see the "Indicators and Ports" section of the card model under "Cards" in the CloudEngine 12800 Series Switches Hardware Description. - To determine the optical modules and cables supported by CE8800&CE7800&CE6800&CE5800 series switches, see the "Appearance and Structure" section of the specific chassis model under Chassis > Chassis Models in the CloudEngine 8800&7800&6800&5800 Series Switches Hardware Description.

Are CE series switches required to use matching power modules
CE series switches must use matching power modules. Using unmatched power modules may cause unexpected risks. The chassis and power modules adopt foolproof designs to prevent misuse of power modules. For the mapping between CloudEngine chassis models and power modules, see the "Power Module" section in the Hardware Description.
