Rack-Mounting Requirements

The QFX10008 switch chassis is designed to be installed in standard 19-in. wide four-post racks that are spaced at 1 U (1.75 in. or 4.45 cm) increments.

You can stack three QFX10008 chassis in a four-post rack if:

  • The rack is 42 U or greater.
  • The rack meets the strength requirements to support the weight.
  • The facility can provide adequate power and cooling.
  • Ensure that the rack rails are spaced widely enough to accommodate the switch chassis’ external dimensions. The outer edges of the front-mounting brackets extend the chassis width to 19 in. (48.26 cm).
  • Ensure that the rack is strong enough to support the weight of the switch and cabling.
  • Ensure that the spacing of rails and adjacent racks allows for proper clearance around the switch and rack.
