Hmmm, what transceiver to use? Helping with ArubaOS-Switch and ArubaOS-CX Transceiver Choices.

The transceiver question is typically on them mind during every deployment.  Below is the link to our current combined ArubaOS-Switch and ArubaOS-CX Supported Transceiver Guide and I have attached important information about the use of 3rd party transceivers.

Hi Rob.

 

Do Aruba AOS-CX (6300M) switches support HPE FlexNetwork Transceivers?

I can't find that in the release notes, is that only for 6300/6400 or also on the 8400?

Yes, it is.

 

Currently (28 August 2020) ArubaOS-CX 10.05.0010 superseded the ArubaOS-CX 10.05.0001. So go with the latest if possible.
