If you check the datasheet here: https://www.commscope.com/product-typ...

It has a link to the supported optics for the platforms.

I have this but was hoping an Engineer would get this and have some insight into possible supported / unsupported transceivers as most 10gb sfp+ transceivers work on the ICX platform including non Ruckus/Brocade transceivers.

Hi Tim

Only the Ruckus 10G-SFPP-TX-A optic is tested and approved for use in the 7850. Third party optics should work but are not guaranteed https://www.commscope.com/globalassets/digizuite/62109-optics-advisory-note.pdf
