How to install the SFPs
This product uses hot-swappable SFPs, but you should disconnect any cables before changing the SFP modules.
Caution: Wear a grounding strap when handling SFPs to avoid damaging them or other components. Avoid exposure to laser radiation from optical components by keeping the dust plugs installed until you are ready to install the cables.
Your transceivers can be inserted into any open port and in any order.
You can hot-swap the connected transceivers at any time, but it is recommended you then re-launch Observer Analyzer so that the new speeds can be identified.
