Installing an I/O Card with Copper Media Interfaces

To install an IOC that supports copper media interfaces:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    The PWR LED blinks to show you that the device is shutting down. Wait for the device to shut down before proceeding.

  3. Place the IOC on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  4. Identify the slot on the services gateway where it will be installed. You can only install IOCs in front-panel slots.
  5. Orient the IOC so that the faceplate faces you. Slide the IOC all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance.
  6. Tighten the screws on either side of the card.
  7. If you are installing additional IOCs at this time, repeat steps Step 3 through Step 6, then continue with the following steps to connect the appropriate cables.
  8. Insert the appropriate cables into the cable connector 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 its shape.

Warning: 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.
