Pluggable Transceivers Supported on EX Series Switches

 

The transceivers for EX Series switches are hot-removable and hot-insertable field-replaceable units (FRUs): You can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions.

Note

After you insert a transceiver or after you change the media-type configuration, wait for 6 seconds for the interface to display the operational commands.

Note

We recommend that you use only optical transceivers and optical connectors purchased from Juniper Networks with your Juniper Networks device.

Caution

If you face a problem running a Juniper Networks device that uses a third-party optic or cable, the Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) can help you diagnose the source of the problem. Your JTAC engineer might recommend that you check the third-party optic or cable and potentially replace it with an equivalent Juniper Networks optic or cable that is qualified for the device.
