General Site Installation Guidelines
To plan and create an acceptable operating environment for your services gateway and prevent environmentally caused equipment failures:
Follow the prescribed electrostatic discharge (ESD) prevention procedures to prevent damaging the equipment. Static discharge can cause components to fail completely or intermittently over time.
Follow prescribed airflow guidelines to ensure that the cooling system functions properly. The airflow around the chassis must be unrestricted. Allow sufficient clearance between the front and back of the chassis and adjacent equipment. Ensure that there is adequate circulation in the installation location.
Keep the area around the chassis clear and free from dust.
