B22 FEX SFP question: Is the AP783A the same as the 455885-001?

B22 FEX SFP question: Is the AP783A the same as the 455885-001?

Markus was looking to help a customer with transceivers:





My customer is ordering their c7000 with B22 FEX and AP783A (HP 10Gbe Short Range SFP+ Transceiver).


What they're receiving with the shipment, however, is prod. Nr  455885-001 (see photo).


Both seem to have the same description, but the customer wants proof - in part because Cisco doesn't recognize the part and recommended my customer not use it.


I tried using Partssurfer, myPMI and other tools and worked w/ logistics, but so far we can't line the two up.


Ordered: AP783A    HP 10Gbe Short Range SFP+ Transceiver

Received: 455885-001 ASSY, 10GB SR SFP  or HP 10Gb SR SFP+


Does anyone happen to know the answer to this one?




Answer from Steve:




The B22 FEX only works with either Cisco FETs or Cisco SFPs. The FETs are not sold separately but only as part of a Cisco bundle. No HP transceiver will work in the FEX or the upstream Nexus switch. As an alternative, you can use DACs cables. But these are not the recommended approach.
