CTP2000 Environmental Requirements
See one of the following topics for complete environmental specifications:
Choose a location for the device that is dry, relatively dust free, well ventilated, and air conditioned. If you install equipment in a rack, be sure that the floor is capable of supporting the combined weight of the rack and the installed equipment. Place the device in a location with sufficient access to power and network cables.
Like other network devices, the device generates a significant amount of heat. You must provide a balanced environment so that the device performs properly and safely. See the individual system specifications for acceptable ranges of temperature and humidity.
Be sure to allow enough space around the device for adequate ventilation. Inadequate ventilation can cause the device to overheat.
Do not block the air vents on the device. Otherwise, the device might overheat.
