MYTH: Compatibles may work, but if I ever upgrade my OS, they will no longer work or need to be recoded
GigaTech compatible products are coded the same as originals, so if an OS upgrade were to affect a compatible it would affect an original as well.
MYTH: Only original transceivers will fit properly in the systems
GigaTech transceivers are built to the same MSA (Multisource Agreement) as those used by switch manufacturers, ensuring that they are the exact same form, fit, and function.
MYTH: Companies that supply compatibles can’t help with configuration assistance or
post-sales support.
GigaTech has a staff of trained sales representatives backed by Cisco certified engineers who can help determine what items are needed, design custom solutions, and troubleshoot issues that may arise.
MYTH: If a system manufacturer does not offer a specific option then their systems won’t recognize or support it.
GigaTech can create custom solutions to bridge the gap between what OEM’s offer and what your network needs. Solutions include custom distance transceivers, custom length cables, dual coded direct attach cables, and unique CWDM and DWDM options.
