Installing Optional Components

After the switch is secured to the rack or cabinet, install optional components.

Pluggable Transceiver Modules

Extreme Networks offers several optical transceiver modules for transmitting and receiving data over optical fiber rather than through electrical wires. Install these modules using the instructions in Extreme Networks Pluggable Transceivers Installation Guide.

Other Optional Components

To install other optional components – port option cards, versatile interface modules (VIMs), and stacking modules – refer to the instructions in Installing Expansion Modules.

What to Do Next

After you have installed optional components, if your switch comes with an installed power supply, skip to Connecting Power to the Switch.

If your switch does not come with an installed power supply, install one or two power supplies using the instructions in Installing Internal Power Supplies.

To see which internal power supplies are compatible with your switch, see Replaceable Internal Power Supply Compatibility .
