Connecting AC-Powered Switches to a Power Source

An AC power cord is not included with the Summit AC power supply. You can purchase AC power cords for use in the US and Canada from Extreme Networks or from your local supplier. The cord must meet the requirements listed in Power Cord Requirements for AC-Powered Switches and AC Power Supplies.



For DC-powered switches, do not use this procedure. Instead, see Connecting DC-Powered Switches to a Power Source.

To power up an Extreme Networks AC-powered switch, do the following:

  1. Connect the AC power cord to the AC power input socket on the switch and an AC power outlet.
  2. If applicable, attach the cable from your redundant power supply (RPS) into the switch‘s redundant power supply receptacle.
  3. When power is connected, verify that the PSU LED and RPS LED (if applicable) turns green.

When both LEDs have turned green, follow the instructions in Connecting Network Interface Cables.

If the PSU and RPS LEDs do not turn green, see the Switch LEDs topic for your switch model (in Summit Switches) for troubleshooting information.
