Before You Start

Before You Start

Before using the optical/electrical module, please understand the risk of using the non-certified optical/electrical module and how to How to Identify Huawei-Certified optical/electrical modules.

  • A NIP must use optical or electrical modules that have been certified for use. Non-certified optical or electrical modules cannot ensure transmission reliability and may affect service stability. Huawei is not liable for any problem caused by the use of non-certified optical or electrical modules and will not fix such problems.

  • The methods provided here are only for reference. To confirm whether optical modules you are using have been certified for use on Huawei NIPs, contact Huawei technical support.

Risks of Using Non-Huawei-Certified Optical Modules

During certification of optical modules for NIP, 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 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 NIP's data bus.

    Some non-Huawei-certified optical modules have defects in data bus designs. Using such an optical module on a NIP causes suspension of the connected data bus on the NIP. 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 NIP 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 NIP 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 NIP, the system will report incorrect temperature alarms.

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

    Some non-Huawei-certified NIP 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 NIP 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 NIP optical modules cannot meet service requirements. When they are used under relatively high temperature, the optical power decreases, resulting in service interruption.

How to Identify Huawei-Certified Optical Modules

Method 1: Check for "HUAWEI" on the label

If an optical module has been certified by Huawei, its label contains "HUAWEI", as shown in Figure 1-78.

Method 2: Run the display esn interface command

If Certified is YES, and VendorName is huawei in the display esn interface command output, the optical module has been certified by Huawei. Otherwise, it is not a Huawei-certified optical module.
