Hello,

We're planning to phase out some 10G link-aggregations in favor of 100G
interfaces. We've been looking at buying MIC3-3D-1X100GE-CFP, MPC3E and
Fiberstore CFPs.

I've been told that CFPs (in general) weren't that reliable. They were
kinda "replaced" almost a year and a half or so after its introduction by
CFP2 and then by CFP4 and so on. Size and power consumption aside, are the
MIC3-3D-1X100GE-CFP and CFP modules reliable at all? Are they the SFP-TX of
the 100GBase?
