Item or Task
For More Information
Verify that environmental factors such as temperature and humidity do not exceed switch tolerances.
Measure the distance between external power sources and the switch installation site.
Locate sites to connect system grounding.
Calculate the power consumption and requirements.
Choose the number and types of switches you want to install.
|Rack or Cabinet|
Verify that the rack or cabinet meets the minimum requirements for installing the switch.
Plan rack or cabinet location, including required space clearances.

The Ethernet cables to connect to the RJ-45 network ports on EX4400-24P and EX4400-48P switches provide 90-W power over 4-pair wire. To ensure that the cables do not exceed the rated temperature and ampacity and to ensure proper operation, the cables must meet the following specifications related to deployment, temperature rise, category, IEEE, UL, NEC, and local electric codes:
Plan the cable routing and management.
