What is a Compatible XFP-5901?

Compatible XFP-5901 are an equivalent solution for overpriced original XFP-5901 from Level One, 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 fiber-optic network, compatible Level One XFP-5901 provide a way to build high-availability connections in high-speed networks in hardware from different manufacturers without having to compromise the arbitrary Level One price policy of the large world conglomerates. A Level One compatible XFP-5901 offers the same range of functions as an original XFP-5901 and differs only in the product label. The technical set-up of Level One compatible XFP-5901 and of original XFP-5901 is the same as defined by MSA standards. Only the quality of the installed components can vary. Level One compatible XFP-5901 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 XFP-5901 from Level One. If you are not yet familiar with compatible Level One XFP-5901, please let us know. You can request a test sample from to try out a compatible Level One XFP-5901 product in your system.

Benefits of a Compatible XFP-5901

Optical XFP-5901 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 XFP-5901.

Low Cost

Optical XFP-5901 from Level One cost a lot more in comparison to compatible XFP-5901. Depending on the model, well-known products are 50% to 1000% more expensive than compatible XFP-5901 from third-party suppliers. Depending on the number of ports required this can quickly increase the cost of a fiber-based network. In this case, however, it is important not to purchase any compatible XFP-5901 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 XFP-5901 with high-quality components like the compatible XFP-5901 of the BlueOptics brand from, which have an above-average lifetime compared to compatible XFP-5901 no-name products or conventional compatible XFP-5901 brand products, cost only a fraction of the price of original XFP-5901.

Standardized Production

By setting standards and norms for pluggable XFP-5901 in the internationally appointed Multi-Source Agreement (MSA), compatible XFP-5901 can be designed to meet the exact specifications for an exact fit of the compatible XFP-5901, the correct design of the compatible XFP-5901 and the exact operation of the compatible XFP-5901. Depending on the choice of the internal installed components, compatible XFP-5901 can be just as qualitative as the original XFP-5901. There is therefore no risk of incompatibilities when using compatible XFP-5901 insofar the MSA standards are applied. In addition, compatible XFP-5901 meet all industrial standards, norms and communications regulations. Compatible XFP-5901 of the brand BlueOptics from meet all specifications and reach or even exceed all standards.

Compatible Programming

Compatible XFP-5901 must be adapted for the use in its hardware, so that the compatible XFP-5901 can be recognized correctly and the hardware does not deny working with the compatible XFP-5901. 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 XFP-5901, who have the appropriate know-how and, if you are concerned, provide a test sample of the desired compatible XFP-5901.

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 XFP-5901 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 In the unexpectedly occurring event of a fault of the compatible XFP-5901 you will always receive a corresponding exchange module for your compatible XFP-5901 within the guarantee period.

Special products

Some transceiver variants are not available in certain manufacturers' portfolios. Compatible XFP-5901 can be adapted in such a way that even module types with other specifications which are not officially supported by the manufacturer can be used to enable special applications or higher ranges. Compatible XFP-5901 of the brand BlueOptics from 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 XFP-5901

Compatible XFP-5901 from offer no disadvantages in terms of quality, processing and operation compared to original XFP-5901. However, if you only pay attention to the price when buying compatible XFP-5901, you can be surprised badly and cause big problems.

Poor processing - There are manufacturing companies for compatible XFP-5901, mostly in China, which do not respect the MSA standards during the production process and therefore flood the market with compatible XFP-5901 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 XFP-5901 product, you may experience a bad awakening after a few weeks of operation, if not already immediately after commissioning.

Toxic Substances in XFP-5901 - If the production of compatible XFP-5901 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 XFP-5901, what is strictly prohibited according to RoHS guidelines.

In order to save costs, in addition to saving on know-how of compatible XFP-5901 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 XFP-5901 product. For this reason, caution should be exercised in the case of cheap offers from compatible XFP-5901 or vendors that say things they cannot comply with afterwards, what will be revealed firstly when problems occur while using the compatible XFP-5901 for a time.

Is a Compatible XFP-5901 as good as an Original?

Yes and No. We cannot answer this question in general. Compatible XFP-5901 from do not have any disadvantages compared to original XFP-5901. Nowadays, there are many compatible XFP-5901 that are not even worth the low price they cost. Quickly, the cost of maintenance increases and the savings from buying the compatible XFP-5901 from the beginning disappear more than quickly. Even if malfunctions or errors do not necessarily occur immediately when using compatible XFP-5901, inferior compatible XFP-5901 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 XFP-5901 product, its longevity and, of course, in the price.

Does a Compatible XFP-5901 Void the Warranty of My Level One Hardware?

No. The use of compatible XFP-5901 in Level One 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 XFP-5901 not to be bound to one manufacturer. In so far as you use qualitative compatible XFP-5901, it is also not possible that a defect of the hardware can be caused by a XFP-5901 that does not have its own current source.
