I do not believe that Juniper keys their optics. My experience with this is limited though. I am able to get third-party optics to work just fine in EX switches.

As you can see it identifies the Xcvr as non-Juniper.

On the Cisco side, I have a Vertex 1310M GLC-LH-SM that is working fine in a 3560G.


Correct me if I'm wrong but there are good and bad 3rd party SFPs. The good ones being the SFPs with their EEPROM set to appear to be Cisco kit.
