I caved once I saw they also had the ES-48-LITE in stock as I've been waiting for that one as well. So I bought both :D. Gotta cancel my ShopBLT order now!

Price REALLY sucks, but I also really wanted to play around with them. I mostly want to stress them and see just how ready they are for a production environment.

Edit: Anyone know of any optics that are confirmed to work with both Juniper & Ubiquiti?
Mine has a Friday ETA. CA Tax + 1 day prime shipping made the price hurt worse.

Ubiquiti doesn't vendor lock transceivers. I would go with Juniper compatible ones, so they'll work in both.

While they don't vendor lock, they certainly do NOT support all transceivers. I've got three different transceivers that do NOT work with my edgeswitches.

That's sounds pretty strange. What are the model numbers of those transceivers that don't work?

Damn that sucks. I wonder if that means my Nebula L45593-C116-D20-C won't work either then.

I'm not sure how you could call that vendor lock...Dell transceivers working in a Ubiquiti switch, but some other ones not.

Here is their compatibility list. Are some transceivers not following specs and that's why they won't work? Or issues with edgeswitch firmware?

EdgeMAX - Which SFPs are compatible with the EdgeSwitch?

SFP modules compatibility - Ubiquiti Networks Community

Haven't read through the 12 page sticky thread yet.
Hah, found my own post in there.

One of the models: Finisar FTLF8524P2BNL-MD
