Installing and Removing EX4550 Switch Hardware Components


The EX4550 switch chassis is a rigid sheet-metal structure that houses the hardware components. The field-replaceable units (FRUs) in EX4550 switches are:

  • Power supplies

  • Fan modules

  • Expansion modules

  • Virtual Chassis module

  • Transceivers

The power supply (AC or DC), fan module, expansion module, Virtual Chassis module, and transceivers are hot-removable and hot-insertable: You can remove and replace them without powering off the switch or disrupting switch functions.


You must remove a fan module only for replacement.
