Installing the SRX110 Services Gateway in a Rack

You can front-mount the SRX110 Services Gateway in a rack. Many types of racks are acceptable, including 4-post (telco) racks, enclosed cabinets, and open-frame racks.

  • Ensure that the rubber feet on the base of the chassis are removed for rack installation.
