Installing a Summit Family Switch

Before you attempt to install or remove an Extreme Networks switch, read the precautions in Safety Considerations for Installing Switches and Pre-installation Requirements.

If you are installing switches for use in a SummitStack configuration, read Building Stacks before you install the switches.

ExtremeSwitching and Summit switches fit into standard 19-inch equipment racks.

The provided rack-mounting brackets attach to the front of the switch and are adaptable to either a front-mount or mid-mount installation. Rear-mounting brackets are included with some switch models for four-post racks or cabinets.

To install an Extreme Networks switch, refer to the specific instructions for your switch model.
