Good News for individuals who Need Optics Information Quickly

If you want to access information regarding Cisco’s optics and easily quickly, we have very good news for you.

Composed with Peter Wong, Product Supervisor, Cisco Optics


Two months ago we highlighted two online tools that produce life easier whenever choosing optics for the Cisco switches, routers, and servers. An abundance has been obtained by us of positive comments, which we appreciate.

We’re very happy to announce a 3rd tool which has the same appear and feel because the first two. Each of them look much like an e-commerce site, having an intelligent internet search engine at the category and top filter systems on the remaining side panel. It’s called the Cisco Online Product Details (COPI) tool also it enables you to view and refine specialized information regarding Cisco Optics products.


COPI saves your time

Previously, you had just our static datasheets to visit. While they are useful and accurate, as of today you can find 26 of them. COPI enables you to avoid having to go through them and provides you exactly the same optics details. Imaginable how much commitment you can save with this particular consolidated dynamic interface.

     Example result of the Optics-To-Gadget Compatibility Matrix. COPI runs on the similar look and feel.     


COPI collects all of the Cisco Optics information that you want right into a readable desk format. Just like the other two equipment, the optic-to-gadget compatibility matrix and the optic-to-optic interoperability matrix , it is possible to export your outcomes to a good Excel PDF or even sheet file.

Make use of URLs


Just like the other two tools furthermore, COPI is browser-based and the URL captures the search parameters. Therefore, it is possible to shared it via e-mail or embed it as a web link. For example, this URL teaches you datasheet information regarding our single-lambda 100G QSFP28 LR optic: https://copi.cisco.com/?pid=QSFP-100G-LR-S .

The search function doesn’t restrict one to one product simply, though. Let’s state you want to notice all Cisco Optics that may transmit and receive over multi-setting fiber (MMF). Without COPI, you’ll have to proceed through all of the static datasheets, and discover each MMF optic in each one of these (they’re separated by information rate and form aspect). You’ll then need to assemble all of this information, that is tedious and time-consuming. COPI aggregates the outcomes for you. Right here’s that specific lookup: https://copi.cisco.com/?ttp=MMF .


What’s next

As you’ll expect, we will add brand new optics to COPI once we release them. We have additional improvements in the continuing works too. Stay tuned!
