There can be a lot of noise out there about third party optical transceivers and with so many options to choose from it can be difficult to select the right vendor to work with. We understand what is important to you when looking for compatible optics: price, compatibility and availability.
Hummingbird Networks optical transceivers are 100% compatible with all of the major brands of networking equipment and are a great way to extend your IT budget. Our optics cost 60-90% less than other brands. You can read more about why here, but the short version is that OEMs simply charge more for their optics because they can. Their optics are no different from ours, in fact they are sometimes even manufactured in the same place, they are just able to charge more because of the brand name recognition.
Since our optics are manufactured in the same facility as many major OEMs, they are 100% compatible with the intended brand of networking equipment. We carry compatible optics for Cisco, Juniper, HP, Adtran, Brocade and more. We also provide a limited lifetime warranty on our optics vs. other manufacturers who typically only give a 90 day warranty.
Our SFPs have far shorter delivery times than other brands as well. Most of our optics are in stock and can be shipped same day.
With all of that being said we want you to see the benefits of our optics for yourself. That’s why we’re giving you a completely risk free 14 day trial to test them out in your own environment.
