We recently installed a new 10G XFP optics module in Juniper MX router. As per the customer , XFP supported range is 120 KM and it is from some third party vendor named 'menara'. Menara produces various SFP+/XFP which are compatible with Juniper/Cisco and Alcatel (This is what their documentation says). I personally havent seen the XFP physically by holding it in my hand.
However , there are some confusions regarding this XFP :-
When we run the command 'show chassis hardware' , there is no such mentioning that its a NON-JNPR XFP. Based on this , can we say confidently that it must be XFP from Juniper side?
If the above condition is not true , is it still possible for a XFP (which as per vendor is fully compatible with Juniper / Cisco) to not be shown as NON-JNPR XFP in show chassis hardware
Juniper itself makes XFPs for various ranges (SR,LR,ER and ZR). The range of ZR is 80 KM as per Juniper documentation. In our case when we are using 10G XFP 120 KM , it is still shown as ZR. Is it normal on Juniper routers that using XFP with range (greater than or equal to 80 KM ), XFP will still be shown as ZR in 'show chassis hardware' output . Are the codes of 80 KM and 120 KM same (ZR)?
What should be expected code in case ZR is only reserved for 80 KM?
Below is the snapshot for brevity
