    I have to connect an 8320 with Aruba 40G QSFP+ LC BiDi 150m MMF (JL308A) with a Cisco Nexus which use the Cisco QSFP-40/100-SRBD transceiver.

    Due to the datasheet the Aruba transceiver works with 850 nm

    and Cisco works with 855 nm

    Is it possible to build up a link between those transceiver?

    Thanks

    Hi Frank,
    As far as I know, nowadays 40GE bidirectional transceivers are prorietary, they do not follow a IEEE standard, so the only way to know if the transceivers you mentioned work together it is trying them on the field.
