Step 1–Preparing the Site for the QFX10008

The QFX10008 is a rigid sheet-metal switch-chassis that houses the other hardware components such as control boards, switch interface boards (SIBs), power supplies, fan trays, and line cards. The switch chassis ships in a cardbox box that has a two-layer wooden pallet base. The switch chassis is bolted to the pallet base. You can install a QFX10008 switch in a standard 19 in. (483 mm) equipment rack by using the supplied rack-mounting kit and the front-mounting bracket that is attached to the chassis.

Before you install the QFX10008, make sure the site meets all of the power, cooling, and clearance requirements. See the site preparation guidelines and power requirements in the QFX10008 Switch Hardware Guide
