What is a Compatible JL287A?

Compatible JL287A are an equivalent solution for overpriced original JL287A from HPE, 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 HPE JL287A Active Optical Cables (AOC) provide a way to build high-availability connections in high-speed networks without having to compromise the arbitrary HPE price policy of the large world conglomerates. A HPE compatible JL287A offers the same range of functions as an original JL287A and differs only in the product label. The technical set-up of HPE compatible JL287A and of original JL287A is the same as defined by MSA standards. Only the quality of the installed components can vary. HPE compatible JL287A 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 JL287A from HPE. If you are not yet familiar with compatible HPE JL287A, please let us know. You can request a test sample from gbic-shop.de to try out a compatible HPE JL287A product in your system.

Benefits of a Compatible JL287A

JL287A 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 JL287A.

Low Cost

JL287A AOCs from HPE cost a lot more in comparison to compatible JL287A. Depending on the model, well-known products are 50% to 1000% more expensive than compatible JL287A 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 JL287A 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 JL287A with high-quality components like the compatible JL287A of the BlueOptics brand from gbic-shop.de, which have an above-average lifetime compared to compatible JL287A no-name products or conventional compatible JL287A brand products, cost only a fraction of the price of original JL287A.

Standardized Production

By setting standards and norms for JL287A AOCs in the internationally appointed Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), compatible JL287A can be designed to meet the exact specifications for an exact fit of the compatible JL287A, the correct design of the compatible JL287A and the exact operation of the compatible JL287A. Depending on the choice of the internal installed components, compatible JL287A can be just as qualitative as the original JL287A. There is therefore no risk of incompatibilities when using compatible JL287A insofar the MSA standards are applied. In addition, compatible JL287A meet all industrial standards, norms and communications regulations. Compatible JL287A of the brand BlueOptics from gbic-shop.de meet all specifications and reach or even exceed all standards.

Compatible Programming

Compatible JL287A must be adapted for the use in its hardware, so that the compatible JL287A can be recognized correctly and the hardware does not deny working with the compatible JL287A. 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 JL287A, who have the appropriate know-how and, if you are concerned, provide a test sample of the desired compatible JL287A.

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 JL287A 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 JL287A you will always receive a corresponding exchange cable for your compatible JL287A within the guarantee period.

Special products

Some cable variants are not available in certain manufacturers' portfolios. Compatible JL287A 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 JL287A 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 JL287A

Compatible JL287A from gbic-shop.de offer no disadvantages in terms of quality, processing and operation compared to original JL287A. However, if you only pay attention to the price when buying compatible JL287A, you can be surprised badly and cause big problems.

Poor processing - There are manufacturing companies for compatible JL287A, mostly in China, which do not respect the MSA standards during the production process and therefore flood the market with compatible JL287A 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 JL287A product, you may experience a bad awakening after a few weeks of operation, if not already immediately after commissioning.

Toxic Substances in JL287A - If the production of compatible JL287A 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 JL287A, what is strictly prohibited according to RoHS guidelines.

In order to save costs, in addition to saving on know-how of compatible JL287A 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 JL287A product. For this reason, caution should be exercised in the case of cheap offers from compatible JL287A or vendors that say things they cannot comply with afterwards, what will be revealed firstly when problems occur while using the compatible JL287A for a time.

Is a Compatible JL287A as good as an Original?

Yes and No. We cannot answer this question in general. Compatible JL287A from gbic-shop.de do not have any disadvantages compared to original JL287A. Nowadays, there are many compatible JL287A that are not even worth the low price they cost. Quickly, the cost of maintenance increases and the savings from buying the compatible JL287A from the beginning disappear more than quickly. Even if malfunctions or errors do not necessarily occur immediately when using compatible JL287A, inferior compatible JL287A 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 JL287A product, its longevity and, of course, in the price.

Does a Compatible JL287A Void the Warranty of My HPE Hardware?

No. The use of compatible JL287A in HPE 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 JL287A not to be bound to one manufacturer. In so far as you use qualitative compatible JL287A, it is also not possible that a defect of the hardware can be caused by a JL287A that does not have its own current source.
