Overview of Installing the T1600 Router into the Rack

  1. Read the safety information. To avoid harm to yourself or the router as you lift it into the rack, follow the guidelines and safety procedures for working with routers.

    See T1600 Chassis Lifting Guidelines, and General Safety Guidelines for Juniper Networks Devices.

  2. Verify that the site has been prepared for the router installation.

    See T1600 Site Preparation Requirements Checklist .

  3. Because of the T1600 router's size and weight—up to 606 lb (275 kg) fully configured—we strongly recommend that you lift the router into the rack using a mechanical lift. However, if a mechanical lift is not available, you can remove components from the chassis to make it easier to install into the rack. With components removed, the chassis weighs approximately 225 lb (102 kg), and four people can lift the chassis into the rack manually.
