Generic SFPs

<< < (3/3)

Riley Casey:
Ten years ago I bought a box of used / surplus / generic / whatever multi mode fiber SFPs on Ebay at a price that made it worth throwing most of them away to get half a dozen working units. The first eight SFPs out of the box are still working fine ( or were before the virus shutdown ). Fiber transmission of Dante has been a good investment.

If the government job requires a JITC or NSA CfSC cert, then they probably can't save the money using alternate gear.
