Risks of Using Non-Huawei-Certified Switch Optical Modules

Risks of Using Non-Huawei-Certified Switch Optical Modules

During certification of optical modules for Huawei switches, Huawei completes comprehensive functionality verification to ensure quality of optical modules. The verified items include optical module plug/unplug, transmit optical power, receive optical power, signal transmission quality, data reading, error tolerance, compatibility, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and environmental parameters.

Non-Huawei-certified switch optical modules may cause the following problems:

  • Non-standard structure and size cause failures to install optical modules on adjacent optical interfaces.

    Structures or sizes of some non-Huawei-certified optical modules do not comply with the Multi-Source Agreement (MSA). When such an optical module is installed on an optical interface, the size of this optical module hinders optical module installation on adjacent optical interfaces.

  • Data bus defects cause suspension of a switch's data bus.

    Some non-Huawei-certified optical modules have defects in data bus designs. Using such an optical module on a switch causes suspension of the connected data bus on the switch. As a result, data on the suspended bus cannot be read.

  • Improper edge connector size damages electronic devices of optical interfaces.

    If a non-Huawei-certified switch optical module with improper edge connector size is used on an optical interface, electronic devices of the optical interface will be damaged by short circuits.

  • Unnormalized temperature monitoring causes incorrect alarms.

    The temperature monitoring systems of some non-Huawei-certified switch optical modules do not comply with industry standards and report temperature values higher than the real temperature. When such optical modules are used on a switch, the system will report incorrect temperature alarms.

  • Improper register settings cause errors or failures in reading parameters or diagnostic information.

    Some non-Huawei-certified switch optical modules have improper register values on page A0, which can cause errors or failures when the system attempts to read parameters or diagnostic information from a data bus.

  • Some non-Huawei-certified switch optical modules are not designed in compliance with EMC standards and have low anti-interference capability. Additionally, they bring electromagnetic interference to nearby devices.

  • The operating temperature ranges of non-Huawei-certified switch optical modules cannot meet service requirements. When they are used under relatively high temperature, the optical power decreases, resulting in service interruption.
