Quality and authenticity should be your top consideration when buying products.
Products sourced from outside Cisco authorized channels may pass through many hands before they reach you.
Unauthorized products may include secondhand, third-party, or even stolen products.
Counterfeit products can contain components that have been tampered with, including illegal software. Counterfeit products may not perform to standards.
Counterfeit products can cause serious risks to network quality, performance, safety, and reliability.
Dates on security labels from new products purchased from Cisco authorized channels should correlate to the transaction date.
