Mounting an EX4300 Switch in a Recessed Position in a Rack or Cabinet

 

You can mount an EX4300 switch in a recessed position on two posts of either a two-post rack or a four-post rack such that the switch is recessed inside the rack from the rack front by 2 inches. To mount the switch in a recessed position, use the front-mounting brackets provided in the separately orderable four-post rack-mount kit.

Reasons to mount the switch in a recessed position include:

  • You are mounting the switch in a cabinet and the cabinet doors do not close completely unless the switch is recessed.

  • The switch you are mounting has an uplink module with transceivers installed in it—the transceivers in the uplink module ports protrude from the front of the switch.

To mount the switch in a recessed position, on two-posts or on four-posts, follow the instructions in Mounting an EX4300 Switch on Two Posts of a Rack or Cabinet or Mounting an EX4300 Switch on Four Posts of a Rack or Cabinet.
