System Configurator Tutorial


This is a sample tutorial on how to use the System Configurator to search for products on the AddOn site. As search results are populated, the configurator gives you options to filter your results based on additional criteria that apply to that part. This current tutorial uses a Transceiver search to outline the process. For each product category (Transceivers, Cabling, Memory, Accessories) there are different filtering options based on those products. This is only used as an example for how the search and filtering processes effect the search results. This process applies to all categories and will help you to narrow your search results to find the specific products you are looking for.
