DWDM-Transceiver for Nexus55xx ?

We need an Nexus-Chassis (L3!, capable for OSPF) which supports DWDM-Transceiver (10G) for interlinking with ONS15454-Card

Is there any existing/new/upcomming NX-OS which supports this DWDM-Transceiver for Nexus 55xx ???

in the PDF "Cisco 10-Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix"

there is no support for Nexus-Chassis 5596 and all other 55xx

10-Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix - Cisco Systems - G_2014-01-25_19-02-28.jpg

any hints ?

or any idea ?

Thank You in Advance

DWDM-Transceiver for Nexus55xx ?

You wouldn't use a DWDM transceiver in the client side Nexus. I doubt Cisco will ever offer one in that platform.

Instead use a standard 10 Gbase-SR transceiver and then link to the 15454 via an ONS-XC-10G-S1= transceiver in a 15454-10GE-XP= Xponder card. (Data Sheet)

DWDM-Transceiver for Nexus55xx ?

Thank you for your answer.

but we don't use a Xponder card.

for that reason we have to use a DWDM-Transceiver instead of.

now we have cat65xx (with DWDM-Transceivers) but we have to migrate to n55xx.

and are looking for any platform which supports this DWDM-Transceiver

so that we have no changes at the hole ONS
