Models, specifications, and compatibility

QSFP28 optical transceiver modules provide a transmission rate of 100 Gbps and use LC connectors.

The 845972-B21 100G BiD transceiver is a Short Reach 100G product, designed to work over Multi-mode Fiber (MMF) only of OM3 or better quality. It is NOT supported for use over OM1/OM2 quality fiber.

The 845972-B21 100G BiDi transceiver is offered by HPE Server. These parts are ordered using the specified part number (transceiver may not be available to order for Aruba-only partners).

Refer to the HPE Compute transceiver and cable hardware matrix product availability matrix at hpe.com to verify compatibility with HPE network adapters.

9300S requires configuration of port-groups to enable 100G speeds. Groups of 4 - all ports in the group need to be of the same speed set (100G vs 40G). 100G is enabled using speed-group 1 (default) for the selected port group. The center QDD ports (17-24) do not need a command, and are auto-sensing.
