Unpacking a Line Card Used in an EX 8200 series Switch

The line cards for EX 8200 series switches are rigid sheet-metal structures that house the line card components including network ports. The line cards are shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material.

Caution: The line cards are maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack the line cards until you are ready to install them in the switch chassis.

Before you unpack a line card:
