Unpacking the MX104

Unpacking an MX104 Router

The MX104 routers are shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material. The carton also contains an accessory box.

CAUTION:

MX104 routers are maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack the routers until you are ready to begin installation.

To unpack the router and prepare for installation, you need the following tools:

  • Blank panels to cover any slots not occupied by a component

To unpack the router:

  1. Move the shipping carton to a staging area as close to the installation site as possible, but where you have enough room to remove the system components.
  2. Position the carton so that the arrows are pointing up.
  3. Open the top flaps on the shipping carton.
  4. Remove the accessory box and verify the contents in it against the parts inventory on the label attached to the carton.
  5. Pull out the packing material holding the router in place.
  6. Verify the chassis components received against the packing list included with the router. An inventory of parts provided with the router is provided in Parts Inventory (Packing List) for an MX104 Router.
  7. Save the shipping carton and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the router later.
