Third party SFP optics on a ONS15216 DWDM Mux solution
We have an existing DWDM network utilising 15216-SC-4B band splitters and 15216-FLA-8 8 port Mux filters. The devices connected to the filters already are an ONS15454 with MXP_MR_10DME and some 10GE Xenpaks in 6509s.
We need to connect in some Brocade SAN Switches as these are the only ones supported for a Netapp metrocluster solution. We have two options for this:-
1. Purchase 6 x MXP_MR_10DME cards at great expense
2. Add another pair of 8 port MUXs on the next available band and use third pary SFPs that are supported in the Brocade. Smartoptics make a 4Gb FC DWDM 100Ghz SFP which is ITU-T standard. Is there any reason I cannot patch these Smartoptics SFPs through a Cisco 15216-FLA-8 mux? Will this be supported?

Thanks. The question is less about whether it will work or not - I have a good optical budget and EDFAs if needed, but more about supportability as far as Cisco TAC goes, etc. If I deploy these and I have an issue will they say "sorry we wont support any part of your optical network because you are using non-cisco kit". Unlikely but I know vendors who do this!
