Choose OEM Compatibles from GigaTech Products

System manufacturers such as Cisco, Ciena, HP, and Juniper do not build the transceivers and cables that they supply. Instead, these items are purchased from global contract manufacturers. These items are then labeled, coded, and packaged and sold at astronomically inflated prices. At GigaTech we label, code and package compatible solutions that meet or exceed the specifications of the product provided by the manufacturer at a fraction of the price. Each item is subject to in-depth qualification and testing to ensure that it will be 100% compatible with the OEM solution, and will accommodate the demands of the most rigorous technology environments.

Will the OEM refuse support if I use a GigaTech compatible product

System manufacturers (OEM) cannot deny warranty or support of the system because of the use of third party transceivers or cables and official statements supporting this can be found on numerous system manufacturer websites. The reason for this is due to the Magnuson Moss Act, passed by the FTC in 1975, defined in Section 2302 Subsection C:

(c) Prohibition on conditions for written or implied warranty; waiver by Commission

No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer’s using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name.

So, unless the system manufacturer wants to supply the accessory article at no cost to the consumer, they cannot limit the purchase of accessory goods to exclusive use of manufacturer originals. This does not mean that the system manufacturer has to warrant the accessory item or service purchased from a third party vendor, that responsibility falls upon the company that has supplied the accessory or service. At GigaTech, all of our products come with a Lifetime Warranty without need to purchase any extended contracts or service agreements.

Excerpts From OEM Terms of Service

“When a product fault or defect occurs in the network, and Cisco concludes that the fault or defect is not attributable to the use of third party memory, cables, GBICs, filters, or other non-Cisco components installed by a customer or reseller, Cisco will continue to provide support for the affected product under warranty or covered by a Cisco support program.”

“Adding third-party items does not void the IBM warranty unless the third-party item causes the IBM machine to fail. If there is a warranty or service implication, you may be asked to remove the third-party item, or have the IBM machine inspected and qualified before IBM will process with the warranty service”

Juniper Networks is not obligated to provide services for any of the following: 1) Third-party devices (hardware, software cabling, etc.) not provided by Juniper Networks or Problems associated with or arising directly or indirectly from such components; 2) Problems with Product that have been installed by any party other than (A) Juniper Networks or (B) a party authorized by Juniper Networks 3) Problems relating to incompatibility of the Product with third-party devices;

This HP Limited Warranty does not apply to expendable or consumable parts, with the exception of HP printing supplies and certain rechargeable batteries as specified below, and does not extend to any HP Hardware Product from which the serial number has been removed or that has been damaged or rendered defective by software, interfacing, parts or supplies not supplied by HP; HP is not responsible for any interoperability or compatibility issues that may arise when products, software, or options not supported by HP are used;

GigaTech Products Quality Manufacturing

Never Sourced. Never Recycled.

All components in GigaTech Products optics are manufactured under the same roof and represent the gold standard for reliability and consistency in performance. This vertical manufacture chain allows GigaTech to avoid unnecessary variance in transceiver casing or laser quality often found with online resellers who source their components from an ever-changing vendor list. The transceiver is guaranteed to be built from A-Stock never used components overseen by GigaTech Products,

Rigorous Testing & Standards Compliance

The quality and standards of our hardware is one the base foundations of GigaTech Products. All of our components comply with MSA (Multi-Source Agreement) output standards and, in many cases, excel beyond those certification standards. Every transceiver we produce is tested on active network devices to ensure they comply with OEM equipment and are verified to be plug-and-play and do not require work arounds.
