Installing an I/O Card with Copper Media Interfaces
To install an IOC that supports copper media interfaces:
Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare
wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis. For more information about ESD, see Preventing
Electrostatic Discharge Damage.
If you have not already done so, power off the device by
pressing the Power button on the front panel of the Switch Fabric
Board (SFB) for three to five seconds.

Orient the IOC so that the faceplate

ports on each IOC). Secure the cables so that they are not
supporting their own weight. Place excess cable out of the way in
a neatly coiled loop. Placing fasteners on a loop helps to maintain

Never lift the services gateway using the handles on the front
panels of the IOCs or other CFM cards. The handles might come off,
causing the chassis to drop and inflicting possible grave injury.
