Providing Adequate Space for the Rack
Provide enough space in front of and behind the switch so that you can service it easily.
WarningExtreme Networks switches do not have a switch for turning power to the unit on and off. For systems using an AC power supply, power to the switch is disconnected by removing the wall plug from the electrical outlet.
Be sure that cables and other equipment do not block the switch's air intake or outflow.
WarningThe DC-powered switches include the following models:
- X440-G2-24t-10GE4-DC and X440-G2-48t-10GE4-DC
For these switches and the EPS-150DC power supply, turn off power to the chassis by de-energizing the circuit that feeds the power supply. This is usually accomplished by turning off a circuit breaker. Disconnecting the DC power cable from the DC power source must be done by a qualified, licensed electrician.
Depending on other conditions in the equipment room, it may be possible to install the switches closer to each other; consult your Extreme Networks Customer Support representative for guidance.
