Reinstalling IOCs and SPCs

To reinstall the IOCs and SPCs, follow this procedure for each card (see Figure 79):

  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. Place the card on an antistatic mat or remove it from its electrostatic bag.
  3. Identify the slot on the services gateway where it will be installed.
  4. Verify that each fiber-optic has a rubber safety cap covering the transceiver. If it does not, cover the transceiver with a safety cap.
  5. Orient the card so that the faceplate faces you.
  6. Lift the card into place and carefully align the sides of the card with the guides inside the card cage.
  7. Slide the card all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance.
  8. Grasp both ejector handles and rotate them clockwise simultaneously until the card is fully seated.
