Transceiver failure rate

We've had several GLC-SX-MM, SFP's failures within the last month and a half. Does Cisco have a way of referencing the failure rate for a certain device?

Links are apprecaited

Thanks in advanced,

Re: Transceiver failure rate

Hello Justin,

let me share our experience

in the last mounths we had to change many GLC-SX-MM SFP in two campus networks we thought we had got a set of defective transceivers.

However, older bigger GBICs are more reliable, SFPs are much smaller but probably they suffer more heating (more power density)

Hope to help

Re: Transceiver failure rate

Giuseppe,

Thanks for your response that is enlightening. I would like to move away from these transceivers as well. That being said I need to provide justification to get funds for this, hence why I need statistics on the failure rate of this particular transceiver.

Thanks again Giuseppe,
