sfps from fs dot com


     Back last year, I experienced less than expected reliability with 
QFX and their QSFPs.

     We prefer to use optic.ca since they're a few minutes from our DC's 
and will respond within the day, with platform and firmware changes, 
which we can test in lab before shipping to our remotes.

     The price difference is made reducing downtime in our case.
