Spirent TestCenter: Is HP JL307A QSFP20 DAC cable supported?

Environment/Versions
  • JL307A QSFP20 DAC cable
  • DX3 and FX3 cards - Speed 100G, 25G and 50G
A customer has a cable ( JL307A QSFP28 DAC) and they are looking for validation from our side so that they can implement accordingly on their side.
Answer
  • Yes, it's supported
Engineering helped tested it out on a FX3 card at 100, 50, and 25G speeds. Link and traffic all look okay. No need to do any manual setup as the auto setting are good. It’ll work the same on a MX3 card.
DAC cable also tested fine on DX3, the cable works in auto mode and there will be no code changes.

The cable is labeled with an Aruba PN.
 

But programmed into the eeprom is a FCI vendor and PN.
