I. Range of Application for Anti-Counterfeit Labels:

For your legal benefits and to prevent counterfeit H3C products from disturbing the market order, New H3C Technology Co., Ltd. ("H3C") started putting anti-counterfeit labels on the body of partial H3C products from May 10, 2010:

1. Anti-counterfeit label-A shall be put on the body of H3C hosts (for Chinese version and Chinese-Foreign version only, other than Foreign version and VIP version).

2. Anti-counterfeit label-B shall be put on the body of H3C optical modules (for Chinese version and Chinese-Foreign version only, other than Foreign version and VIP version).

Note: H3C optical modules refer to those that have undergone H3C professional tests and will not be incompatible with H3C hosts in use. The body of optical modules may bear a H3C logo or a third-party logo.

3. After H3C's evaluation, other H3C products (including but without limitation to: memory bank, hard drive, CPU and others) do not need to bear anti-counterfeit labels on their body.

You can identify the authenticity of H3C products via the anti-counterfeit label on the product body and/or Anti-Counterfeit Barcode Query System to better protect your legal benefits.

2.3 Anti-counterfeit label-B does not have any secret code or plain code, so you are suggested to use "Display transceiver interface" order on the software interface of H3C hosts to read the H3C optical modules' information.

H3C hosts will read the information of the optical modules you use. If the information read by H3C hosts is not H3C optical modules', H3C hosts will take the initiative to send warning messages to the log host and network management software.

Example:

For your legal benefits and prevent incompatibility of non-H3C optical modules with H3C hosts in use, you are suggested to purchase H3C optical modules. H3C provides maintenance services for H3C optical modules only.

III. If you have any questions, please contact your local dealer or sales agent immediately.

Thanks for your cooperation and trust!
