Installing a Summit XGM3 Series Port Option Card

The XGM3 series port option cards can be installed only in a Summit X460 series switch; they are not mechanically compatible with any other Summit switch series.

To install an XGM3 series port option card:

  1. Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap to your bare wrist and connect the metal end to an appropriate ground point on the rack.
  2. At the back of the switch, remove the blank cover over slot A.
