These paricular sfps are multimode so a key point to consider is the type of fibers you have run for the connectivity. Are you using Single Mode or MultiMode fiber. Additionally, esecially on the Dell switches, I would be careful as it is possible they may work, you are not likely going to find a list that says they will work. Technically speaking they are compatible with the technologies just not sure of what the switch will think when you plug it in.

In Cisco for example, you could use off branded stuff but had to issue a command that allowed it to be recognized by the switch.
