What is a Compatible DAC-3M?
Compatible DAC-3M are an equivalent solution for overpriced original DAC-3M from NetApp, 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 electrical signals in a network, for example in a data center, compatible NetApp DAC-3M Direct Attach Cables (DAC) provide a way to build high-availability connections in high-speed networks on short distances without having to compromise the arbitrary NetApp price policy of the large world conglomerates. A NetApp compatible DAC-3M offers the same range of functions as an original DAC-3M and differs only in the product label. The technical set-up of NetApp compatible DAC-3M and of original DAC-3M is the same as defined by MSA standards. Only the quality of the installed components can vary. NetApp compatible DAC-3M from the brand BlueLAN use only high-quality brand cables (such as Belden, Molex or TE Connectivity) and high-quality ICs (such as Maxim Integrated or Netlogic) and therefore have the same quality or even a better quality as the original DAC-3M from NetApp. If you are not yet familiar with compatible NetApp DAC-3M, please let us know. You can request a test sample from gbic-shop.de to try out a compatible NetApp DAC-3M product in your system.
Benefits of a Compatible DAC-3M
DAC-3M DACs 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 DAC-3M.
DAC-3M DACs from NetApp cost a lot more in comparison to compatible DAC-3M. Depending on the model, well-known products are 50% to 1000% more expensive than compatible DAC-3M 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 DAC-3M 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 DAC-3M with high-quality components like the compatible DAC-3M of the BlueLAN brand from gbic-shop.de, which have an above-average lifetime compared to compatible DAC-3M no-name products or conventional compatible DAC-3M brand products, cost only a fraction of the price of original DAC-3M.
By setting standards and norms for DAC-3M DACs in the internationally appointed Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), compatible DAC-3M can be designed to meet the exact specifications for an exact fit of the compatible DAC-3M, the correct design of the compatible DAC-3M and the exact operation of the compatible DAC-3M. Depending on the choice of the internal installed components, compatible DAC-3M can be just as qualitative as the original DAC-3M. There is therefore no risk of incompatibilities when using compatible DAC-3M insofar the MSA standards are applied. In addition, compatible DAC-3M meet all industrial standards, norms and communications regulations. Compatible DAC-3M of the brand BlueLAN from gbic-shop.de meet all specifications and reach or even exceed all standards.
Compatible DAC-3M must be adapted for the use in its hardware, so that the compatible DAC-3M can be recognized correctly and the hardware does not deny working with the compatible DAC-3M. 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 DAC-3M, who have the appropriate know-how and, if you are concerned, provide a test sample of the desired compatible DAC-3M.
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 DAC-3M of the brand BlueLAN, 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 DAC-3M you will always receive a corresponding exchange cable for your compatible DAC-3M within the guarantee period.
Some cable variants are not available in certain manufacturers' portfolios. Compatible DAC-3M 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 DAC-3M of the brand BlueLAN 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 DAC-3M
Compatible DAC-3M from gbic-shop.de offer no disadvantages in terms of quality, processing and operation compared to original DAC-3M. However, if you only pay attention to the price when buying compatible DAC-3M, you can be surprised badly and cause big problems.
Poor processing - There are manufacturing companies for compatible DAC-3M, mostly in China, which do not respect the MSA standards during the production process and therefore flood the market with compatible DAC-3M 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 DAC-3M product, you may experience a bad awakening after a few weeks of operation, if not already immediately after commissioning.
Toxic Substances in DAC-3M - If the production of compatible DAC-3M 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 DAC-3M, what is strictly prohibited according to RoHS guidelines.
In order to save costs, in addition to saving on know-how of compatible DAC-3M 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 DAC-3M product. For this reason, caution should be exercised in the case of cheap offers from compatible DAC-3M or vendors that say things they cannot comply with afterwards, what will be revealed firstly when problems occur while using the compatible DAC-3M for a time.
Is a Compatible DAC-3M as good as an Original?
Yes and No. We cannot answer this question in general. Compatible DAC-3M from gbic-shop.de do not have any disadvantages compared to original DAC-3M. Nowadays, there are many compatible DAC-3M that are not even worth the low price they cost. Quickly, the cost of maintenance increases and the savings from buying the compatible DAC-3M from the beginning disappear more than quickly. Even if malfunctions or errors do not necessarily occur immediately when using compatible DAC-3M, inferior compatible DAC-3M 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 cables 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 DAC-3M product, its longevity and, of course, in the price.
Does a Compatible DAC-3M Void the Warranty of My NetApp Hardware?
No. The use of compatible DAC-3M in NetApp 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 DAC-3M not to be bound to one manufacturer. In so far as you use qualitative compatible DAC-3M, it is also not possible that a defect of the hardware can be caused by a DAC-3M that does not have its own current source.
Each BlueLAN SC353501J3M30 SFP+ to SFP+ DAC Direct Attach 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.
