To install an SFP transceiver module:
Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is well grounded.
Unpack the SFP transceiver module. Do not touch the golden finger of the module.
Pivot the clasp of the transceiver module up so that it catches a knob on the top of the module.
Squeezing both sides of the module, gently push the module into the slot until it has firm contact with
the slot (you can feel that the top and bottom spring tabs catch in the slot). See
