Installing an SFP or XFP Transceiver

To install an SFP or XFP:

  1. Attach an ESD wrist strap to your bare wrist and connect the wrist strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Take each transceiver to be installed out of its electrostatic bag and identify the slot on the IOC or SPC where it will be installed.
  3. Verify that each transceiver is covered by a rubber safety cap. If it is not, cover the transceiver with a safety cap.
  4. Carefully align the transceiver with the slots in the IOC or SPC. The connectors should face the IOC or SPC.
  5. Slide the transceiver until the connector is seated in the IOC slot. If you are unable to fully insert the transceiver, make sure the connector is facing the right way.
  6. Close the ejector handle of the transceiver.
  7. Remove the rubber safety cap from the transceiver and the end of the cable. Insert the cable into the transceiver.
  8. Verify that the status LEDs on the IOC or SPC faceplate indicate that the SFP or XFP is functioning correctly. You can also verify that the IOC or SPC is functioning by issuing the show chassis fpc pic-status command described in Maintaining IOC Cables.
