What is a Compatible H8C2H?

Compatible H8C2H are an equivalent solution for overpriced original H8C2H from Dell, 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 Dell H8C2H Active Optical Cables (AOC) provide a way to build high-availability connections in high-speed networks without having to compromise the arbitrary Dell price policy of the large world conglomerates. A Dell compatible H8C2H offers the same range of functions as an original H8C2H and differs only in the product label. The technical set-up of Dell compatible H8C2H and of original H8C2H is the same as defined by MSA standards. Only the quality of the installed components can vary. Dell compatible H8C2H 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 H8C2H from Dell. If you are not yet familiar with compatible Dell H8C2H, please let us know. You can request a test sample from gbic-shop.de to try out a compatible Dell H8C2H product in your system.

Benefits of a Compatible H8C2H

H8C2H 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 H8C2H.

Low Cost

H8C2H AOCs from Dell cost a lot more in comparison to compatible H8C2H. Depending on the model, well-known products are 50% to 1000% more expensive than compatible H8C2H 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 H8C2H 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 H8C2H with high-quality components like the compatible H8C2H of the BlueOptics brand from gbic-shop.de, which have an above-average lifetime compared to compatible H8C2H no-name products or conventional compatible H8C2H brand products, cost only a fraction of the price of original H8C2H.

Standardized Production

By setting standards and norms for H8C2H AOCs in the internationally appointed Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), compatible H8C2H can be designed to meet the exact specifications for an exact fit of the compatible H8C2H, the correct design of the compatible H8C2H and the exact operation of the compatible H8C2H. Depending on the choice of the internal installed components, compatible H8C2H can be just as qualitative as the original H8C2H. There is therefore no risk of incompatibilities when using compatible H8C2H insofar the MSA standards are applied. In addition, compatible H8C2H meet all industrial standards, norms and communications regulations. Compatible H8C2H of the brand BlueOptics from gbic-shop.de meet all specifications and reach or even exceed all standards.

Compatible Programming

Compatible H8C2H must be adapted for the use in its hardware, so that the compatible H8C2H can be recognized correctly and the hardware does not deny working with the compatible H8C2H. 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 H8C2H, who have the appropriate know-how and, if you are concerned, provide a test sample of the desired compatible H8C2H.

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 H8C2H 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 H8C2H you will always receive a corresponding exchange cable for your compatible H8C2H within the guarantee period.

Special products

Some cable variants are not available in certain manufacturers' portfolios. Compatible H8C2H 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 H8C2H 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 H8C2H

Compatible H8C2H from gbic-shop.de offer no disadvantages in terms of quality, processing and operation compared to original H8C2H. However, if you only pay attention to the price when buying compatible H8C2H, you can be surprised badly and cause big problems.

Poor processing - There are manufacturing companies for compatible H8C2H, mostly in China, which do not respect the MSA standards during the production process and therefore flood the market with compatible H8C2H 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 H8C2H product, you may experience a bad awakening after a few weeks of operation, if not already immediately after commissioning.

Toxic Substances in H8C2H - If the production of compatible H8C2H 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 H8C2H, what is strictly prohibited according to RoHS guidelines.

In order to save costs, in addition to saving on know-how of compatible H8C2H 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 H8C2H product. For this reason, caution should be exercised in the case of cheap offers from compatible H8C2H or vendors that say things they cannot comply with afterwards, what will be revealed firstly when problems occur while using the compatible H8C2H for a time.

Is a Compatible H8C2H as good as an Original?

Yes and No. We cannot answer this question in general. Compatible H8C2H from gbic-shop.de do not have any disadvantages compared to original H8C2H. Nowadays, there are many compatible H8C2H that are not even worth the low price they cost. Quickly, the cost of maintenance increases and the savings from buying the compatible H8C2H from the beginning disappear more than quickly. Even if malfunctions or errors do not necessarily occur immediately when using compatible H8C2H, inferior compatible H8C2H 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 H8C2H product, its longevity and, of course, in the price.

Does a Compatible H8C2H Void the Warranty of My Dell Hardware?

No. The use of compatible H8C2H in Dell 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 H8C2H not to be bound to one manufacturer. In so far as you use qualitative compatible H8C2H, it is also not possible that a defect of the hardware can be caused by a H8C2H that does not have its own current source.
