cisco glc sx mm in aruba

can i put a cisco sfp (GLC-SX-MM) in an Aruba 2500 port ? Are the SFP's universal or proprietary? - Which means i would have to purchase the SFP from Aruba.

We do not prevent the usage of 3rd party optics but we do not guarantee they will work (e.g. there may be a driver incompatibility). Additionally should you call TAC for assistance on an issue and we have ruled out all Layer 2 and above issues and believe it is the optic at fault, we will ask that you try an Aruba SFP.


Here is actually the list of our optics and their source vendor for your reference.



I personally have not tried a Cisco SX optic in the S2500.

I’ve used Cisco SX optics before without issue.

Technically speaking yes, but no support and not recommended for critical production.
