    Disconnecting a Fiber-Optic Cable from an Optical ILA

    The optical ILA has optical connectors to which you can connect fiber-optic cables.

    Before you disconnect a fiber-optic cable from an optical ILA, ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions for safe handling of lasers (see Optical ILA General Laser Safety Guidelines and Laser Safety Warnings for Juniper Networks Devices).

    To disconnect a fiber-optic cable from an optical connector installed in the optical ILA:

    Warning: Do not look directly into a fiber-optic connector or into the ends of fiber-optic cables. Fiber-optic connectors and fiber-optic cables connected to transceivers emit laser light that can damage your eyes.

    Warning: Do not stare into the laser beam or view it directly with optical instruments even if the interface has been disabled.

    1. Carefully unplug the fiber-optic cable connector from the LC connector. The port will be automatically disabled when the cable is removed.

      Warning: Do not leave a fiber-optic connector uncovered except when inserting or removing a cable. The rubber safety cap keeps the port clean and prevents accidental exposure to laser light.

      Warning: Class 1M laser product.

    2. Cover the fiber-optic cable connector and the optical connector with the respective rubber safety caps.
