    Before You Install the T320 Rack-Mounting Hardware

    The router can be installed in a four-post rack or cabinet or an open-frame rack. Before you install the T320 router, you install the mounting hardware on the rack. The procedure for installing the mounting hardware depends on the type of rack and how you are mounting the router.

    In an open-frame rack, center-mounting is generally preferable to front-mounting because the more even distribution of weight provides greater stability. If you center-mount the chassis, you use the center-mounting brackets attached to the chassis; if you front-mount the chassis, you use the front-mounting flanges.

    If you are mounting the router in a four-post rack or cabinet, you must install the spacer bars on the rack before you mount the chassis. For instructions about installing the mounting hardware, see Installing the T320 Mounting Hardware for a Four-Post Rack or Cabinet or Installing the T320 Mounting Hardware for an Open-Frame Rack, depending on your type of installation.

    After the mounting hardware is installed, proceed to Installing the T320 Router Using a Mechanical Lift or Installing the T320 Chassis in the Rack Manually, depending on your type of installation.
