    Can I install FS transceivers in Cisco, 3Com, HP equipment without affecting the security of the radio equipment?

    It is a misconception that using third party transceivers will void your switch warranty. The truth is that they do not. Most software systems do not guarantee unsupported third party transceivers in the product warranty. However usage of third party transceivers will not affect your security and they are compatible with most devices.

    It is at the discretion of the original equipment manufacturer to disclose what requirements are needed to ensure their warranty is valid.
