Anyone have make/model numbers of working CWDM or DWDM transceivers that work in Aruba 2930F or 3810

I've got 4 strands of OS2 from site1 to site 2.

Currently, there are 2x 10GBase-LR connections from a stack of 2930F switches to a stack of 3810M switches, using all 4 strands.

I'm looking to remove the 10GBase-LR transceviers, install some CWDM or DWDM mux/demux units, and then install 10GBase-WDM transceivers.

Only problem is Aruba doesn't have any listed skus for supported CWDM or DWDM transceivers.

Anyone have working 10GBase-CWDM or 10GBase-DWDM or 1GBase-CWDM or 1GBase-DWDM transceivers that are working in Aruba 2930F or 3810M switches with firmware version 16.x.x?

I'm not afraid of using service-unsupported-transceiver, but I don't want to go buy a bunch of DWDM/CDWM mux/demux units, transceivers, patch cables, etc... and then find out they won't work anyway.

Why, client side (from the mux/demux transponders standpoint), do you need C/DWDM interfaces instead of standard 10G SFP+? I mean the uplink could be OTU4 2x100 Gbps...where the "client" side would be, let me say, 20x10Gbps (SFP+ SR or LR...so Aruba supported SKUs, respectively for 2930F and 3810M, exist and are exactly those you are already using). Am I misunderstanding the whole purpose of using muxponders/transponders pairs on existing fiber optic uplinks between sites?

You can use your existing optics on the 1310 port. However, DWDM in most cases is cheaper, I wouldn't put in any new CWDM these days unless you had to integrate with an already existing CWDM system.
