Step 1: Prepare the Site

Before You Unpack the Platform

Before you begin unpacking the platform, be sure you have the following tools:

  • No. 2 Phillips screwdriver
  • Utility knife
  • Mechanical lift, or at least two people to assist in lifting

Unpack the Platform

Depending on the platform, it may be delivered boxed, bolted, and strapped to a skid. For your convenience, we recommend that you unpack the device in the location where you want to install it.

Warning: Three people are required to install the device in a rack: two to lift the device into position and one to screw it to the rack.

To unpack the device:

  1. Cut the two straps that secure the carton to the skid, open the carton from the top, and remove the box of accessories that sits on top of the device.
  2. Unlock the four plastic clips that hold the box to the skid by squeezing them in their center and pulling out, and then lift the carton off the device.
  3. Remove the three screws that attach each of the two L-brackets to the device.
  4. To avoid scratching the device when removing it from the skid, detach one of the L-brackets from the skid by removing the three screws.

Inspect the Components and Accessories

After you remove the equipment from the shipping containers:

  • Confirm the contents of each container.
  • Inspect all external surfaces and external connectors for visible signs of damage.
  • Inspect all accessories shipped with each unit.
  • Document any damage noted during your inspection.
  • Confirm that the device has the correct number and type of modules for your ordered configuration.

If You Detect or Suspect Damage

If you detect or suspect damage to any equipment:

  • Contact the shipper responsible for delivery, and formally report the damage.
  • Contact your Juniper Networks sales representative or reseller.
