Step 1: Prepare the Site for Installation

Prepare your site for installation by observing the following guidelines:

  • When choosing a location, allow at least 6 in. (15.2 cm) of clearance between the front and back of the chassis and adjacent equipment or walls.
  • Ensure that the wall or the pole onto which the router is installed is stable and securely supported.
  • Ensure that the wall or pole is able to carry the load of the fully configured router.
  • If you are mounting the router in wallboard with a gypsum plaster core or in wallboard not backed by wall studs, use hollow wall anchors capable of supporting the combined weight of two fully loaded chassis. Insert the screws into wall studs wherever possible to provide added support for the chassis.
  • The width of the pole must be within the range of 2 in. through 16 in. for the pole-mounting brackets to fit properly.
  • To mount the router, use the pole-mount kit or the wall-mount kit from Juniper Networks.
  • The pole-mount kit and the wall-mount kit are not part of the standard package and must be ordered separately.
  • One person must be available to lift the router while another secures the router.
  • For service personnel to remove and install hardware components, allow at least 24 in. (60.9 cm) on top of the router.
  • When installing the ACX500 outdoor routers on a pole or on a wall, the chassis must be installed in a vertical orientation with the cables pointing downwards and the eye bolt for hoisting the router pointing upwards. See Figure 1.
