Typically, hardware devices, such as networking devices, include status indicators that display the status of ports and other elements related to the device. Each status indicator includes a status light that is carried by a plastic tube or pipe. Large amounts of plastic are typically involved in the manufacture of port status plastic tubes for networking devices worldwide. Techniques described herein provide for a universal status light that can be provided for networking devices in which the universal status light provides for merging port status indicators and general status indicators into a single status indicator, which may help to reduce plastic consumption and CO2 emissions.
