Hewlett Packard Enterprise Networking Equipment/V1
Supports only HP transceivers
Status: Current — The violation is standing.
HP networking equipment often includes SFP, SFP+, or similar transceiver slots. These accept only HP-made transceivers, despite the fact that these are standard components.
- The transceiver's EEPROM can be reprogrammed to have HP's vendor ID, causing it to be accepted. There are mail-in services which will perform this change, for a fee.
