How can you validate a HPE switch's transceiver is an actual supported transceiver?
To validate your HPE part, (transceivers for this article) just download the HPE Validate mobile app from either the Apple App or Google Play stores.
For the transceiver validation you will be scanning or manually entering the Security ID (SID) number. It will either tell you the part is valid or invalid. Also, to help prevent Security Labels from being counterfeited, HPE uses a two-factor authentication system: The SID and the label hologram, which can be validated with the guidelines stated in the website given above.
Note: Additional hologram images and details can be found on this website regarding Security Labels found on Genuine HPE drives and memory.
