What is a Compatible CBL-401?
Compatible CBL-401 are an equivalent solution for overpriced original CBL-401 from Gigamon, 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 Gigamon CBL-401 Active Optical Cables (AOC) provide a way to build high-availability connections in high-speed networks without having to compromise the arbitrary Gigamon price policy of the large world conglomerates. A Gigamon compatible CBL-401 offers the same range of functions as an original CBL-401 and differs only in the product label. The technical set-up of Gigamon compatible CBL-401 and of original CBL-401 is the same as defined by MSA standards. Only the quality of the installed components can vary. Gigamon compatible CBL-401 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 CBL-401 from Gigamon. If you are not yet familiar with compatible Gigamon CBL-401, please let us know. You can request a test sample from gbic-shop.de to try out a compatible Gigamon CBL-401 product in your system.
Benefits of a Compatible CBL-401
CBL-401 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 CBL-401.
CBL-401 AOCs from Gigamon cost a lot more in comparison to compatible CBL-401. Depending on the model, well-known products are 50% to 1000% more expensive than compatible CBL-401 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 CBL-401 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 CBL-401 with high-quality components like the compatible CBL-401 of the BlueOptics brand from gbic-shop.de, which have an above-average lifetime compared to compatible CBL-401 no-name products or conventional compatible CBL-401 brand products, cost only a fraction of the price of original CBL-401.
By setting standards and norms for CBL-401 AOCs in the internationally appointed Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), compatible CBL-401 can be designed to meet the exact specifications for an exact fit of the compatible CBL-401, the correct design of the compatible CBL-401 and the exact operation of the compatible CBL-401. Depending on the choice of the internal installed components, compatible CBL-401 can be just as qualitative as the original CBL-401. There is therefore no risk of incompatibilities when using compatible CBL-401 insofar the MSA standards are applied. In addition, compatible CBL-401 meet all industrial standards, norms and communications regulations. Compatible CBL-401 of the brand BlueOptics from gbic-shop.de meet all specifications and reach or even exceed all standards.
Compatible CBL-401 must be adapted for the use in its hardware, so that the compatible CBL-401 can be recognized correctly and the hardware does not deny working with the compatible CBL-401. 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 CBL-401, who have the appropriate know-how and, if you are concerned, provide a test sample of the desired compatible CBL-401.
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 CBL-401 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 CBL-401 you will always receive a corresponding exchange cable for your compatible CBL-401 within the guarantee period.
Some cable variants are not available in certain manufacturers' portfolios. Compatible CBL-401 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 CBL-401 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 CBL-401
Compatible CBL-401 from gbic-shop.de offer no disadvantages in terms of quality, processing and operation compared to original CBL-401. However, if you only pay attention to the price when buying compatible CBL-401, you can be surprised badly and cause big problems.
Poor processing - There are manufacturing companies for compatible CBL-401, mostly in China, which do not respect the MSA standards during the production process and therefore flood the market with compatible CBL-401 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 CBL-401 product, you may experience a bad awakening after a few weeks of operation, if not already immediately after commissioning.
Toxic Substances in CBL-401 - If the production of compatible CBL-401 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 CBL-401, what is strictly prohibited according to RoHS guidelines.
In order to save costs, in addition to saving on know-how of compatible CBL-401 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 CBL-401 product. For this reason, caution should be exercised in the case of cheap offers from compatible CBL-401 or vendors that say things they cannot comply with afterwards, what will be revealed firstly when problems occur while using the compatible CBL-401 for a time.
Is a Compatible CBL-401 as good as an Original?
Yes and No. We cannot answer this question in general. Compatible CBL-401 from gbic-shop.de do not have any disadvantages compared to original CBL-401. Nowadays, there are many compatible CBL-401 that are not even worth the low price they cost. Quickly, the cost of maintenance increases and the savings from buying the compatible CBL-401 from the beginning disappear more than quickly. Even if malfunctions or errors do not necessarily occur immediately when using compatible CBL-401, inferior compatible CBL-401 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 CBL-401 product, its longevity and, of course, in the price.
Does a Compatible CBL-401 Void the Warranty of My Gigamon Hardware?
No. The use of compatible CBL-401 in Gigamon 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 CBL-401 not to be bound to one manufacturer. In so far as you use qualitative compatible CBL-401, it is also not possible that a defect of the hardware can be caused by a CBL-401 that does not have its own current source.
Each BlueOptics BO252503K1M QSFP to QSFP AOC Active Optical Cable is covered by a 5-year functional warranty from CBO.
For the entire product lifetime, you will always receive technical support via e-mail and telephone.
The CBO Advance Exchange will include a free shipping of replacement cables from the next business day.
