What is a Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC?

Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC are an equivalent solution for overpriced original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC from Broadcom, which primarily serve as a margin product for the manufacturer, filling the pockets of the company at your expense. As today's standard for the transmission of optical signals in a network, for example in a data center, compatible Broadcom AFBR-7QER25Z-BC Active Optical Cables (AOC) provide a way to build high-availability connections in high-speed networks without having to compromise the arbitrary Broadcom price policy of the large world conglomerates. A Broadcom compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC offers the same range of functions as an original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC and differs only in the product label. The technical set-up of Broadcom compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC and of original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC is the same as defined by MSA standards. Only the quality of the installed components can vary. Broadcom compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC from the brand BlueOptics use only high-quality brand lasers (such as Avago or Lumentum) and high-quality ICs (such as Maxim Integrated or Netlogic) and therefore have the same quality or even a better quality as the original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC from Broadcom. If you are not yet familiar with compatible Broadcom AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, please let us know. You can request a test sample from gbic-shop.de to try out a compatible Broadcom AFBR-7QER25Z-BC product in your system.

Benefits of a Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC

AFBR-7QER25Z-BC AOCs are special industrial products which, as a compatible variant, should only be obtained from a specialist in order to benefit from the following advantages of compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC.

Low Cost

AFBR-7QER25Z-BC AOCs from Broadcom cost a lot more in comparison to compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC. Depending on the model, well-known products are 50% to 1000% more expensive than compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC from third-party suppliers. Depending on the number of ports required this can quickly increase the cost of a network. In this case, however, it is important not to purchase any compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC junk products where the quality suffers during the production or already during the product design process which leads to link errors or complete failures of a connection after a short period of use. But even long-life compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC with high-quality components like the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC of the BlueOptics brand from gbic-shop.de, which have an above-average lifetime compared to compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC no-name products or conventional compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC brand products, cost only a fraction of the price of original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC.

Standardized Production

By setting standards and norms for AFBR-7QER25Z-BC AOCs in the internationally appointed Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC can be designed to meet the exact specifications for an exact fit of the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, the correct design of the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC and the exact operation of the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC. Depending on the choice of the internal installed components, compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC can be just as qualitative as the original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC. There is therefore no risk of incompatibilities when using compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC insofar the MSA standards are applied. In addition, compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC meet all industrial standards, norms and communications regulations. Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC of the brand BlueOptics from gbic-shop.de meet all specifications and reach or even exceed all standards.

Compatible Programming

Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC must be adapted for the use in its hardware, so that the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC can be recognized correctly and the hardware does not deny working with the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC. Incorrect programming can lead to functional restrictions as well as a complete lack of function. It is therefore advisable to look for a trusted supplier for the acquisition of compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, who have the appropriate know-how and, if you are concerned, provide a test sample of the desired compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC.

Long Warranty Periods

Some manufacturers do offer limited warranty periods on original products, usually about one year. Others offer life-long warranty periods. However, this lifetime refers to the time while the product is officially offered. If this is terminated as End of Life (EOL) product, the warranty expires. What this says about the real lifetime of a product is left to your imagination. Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC of the brand BlueOptics, on the other hand, have a warranty period of 5 years and an average life expectancy of 10 years with continuous individual support from gbic-shop.de. In the unexpectedly occurring event of a fault of the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC you will always receive a corresponding exchange cable for your compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC within the guarantee period.

Special products

Some cable variants are not available in certain manufacturers' portfolios. Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC can be adapted in such a way that even cable types with other specifications which are not officially supported by the manufacturer can be used to enable special applications or higher ranges. Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC of the brand BlueOptics from gbic-shop.de are 100% compatible, are MSA and RoHS compliant, have an above average lifetime and are available for more than 165 different vendors.

Disadvantages of a Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC

Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC from gbic-shop.de offer no disadvantages in terms of quality, processing and operation compared to original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC. However, if you only pay attention to the price when buying compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, you can be surprised badly and cause big problems.

Poor processing - There are manufacturing companies for compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, mostly in China, which do not respect the MSA standards during the production process and therefore flood the market with compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC products that lack precision, show incompatibilities, cause hardware damage or are simply sloppily manufactured and thus endangering security. Since you cannot notice this by just looking at the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC product, you may experience a bad awakening after a few weeks of operation, if not already immediately after commissioning.

Toxic Substances in AFBR-7QER25Z-BC - If the production of compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC is not observed to comply with valid industrial and environmental standards, this will lead to a risk to life and limb for you and your employees. Lead and other toxins are used in unclean production processes for compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, what is strictly prohibited according to RoHS guidelines.

In order to save costs, in addition to saving on know-how of compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC and endangering our environment, saving on certifications such as ISO9001 or non-compliance with work laws and work standards are other aspects on how to minimize the total price of a compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC product. For this reason, caution should be exercised in the case of cheap offers from compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC or vendors that say things they cannot comply with afterwards, what will be revealed firstly when problems occur while using the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC for a time.

Is a Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC as good as an Original?

Yes and No. We cannot answer this question in general. Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC from gbic-shop.de do not have any disadvantages compared to original AFBR-7QER25Z-BC. Nowadays, there are many compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC that are not even worth the low price they cost. Quickly, the cost of maintenance increases and the savings from buying the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC from the beginning disappear more than quickly. Even if malfunctions or errors do not necessarily occur immediately when using compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, inferior compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC can already lead to this in a short time. Reasons for this are poor processing, failure to comply with standards and norms and, above all, the use of lasers and ICs from Asian manufacturers, in the worst case from China, which have not been able, as of now, to match the quality of traditional companies for transmission technology from the US by far. As with any electronic component, this is naturally reflected in the quality of the compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC product, its longevity and, of course, in the price.

Does a Compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC Void the Warranty of My Broadcom Hardware?

No. The use of compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC in Broadcom hardware does not void or compromise the warranty of the hardware. Since networks are becoming increasingly heterogeneous and many products from different manufacturers are used, it is only natural for AFBR-7QER25Z-BC not to be bound to one manufacturer. In so far as you use qualitative compatible AFBR-7QER25Z-BC, it is also not possible that a defect of the hardware can be caused by a AFBR-7QER25Z-BC that does not have its own current source.
