My question is, will Cisco devices used outside the US be "different" from devices used INSIDE the US?

If you work internationally, and you need a Cisco device, does it always originate stateside?

I'm just wondering about all the hoops one has to jump through on the international scene.

I ordered 3 devices (used, not brand new) from Singapore some years ago, does this mean I got a different version from what I would have received had I ordered it back home?

I understand in the above link, Singapore has a dual use code. Which to my understanding is they have some kind of "Yeah, you can go ahead and use our stuff with no problems, nor modifications, nor pared-down versions" agreement with the lawyers in San Jose?

Much thanks in advance.
