MX2010 Cabinet Size and Clearance Requirements

The minimum size cabinet that can accommodate the router is 23.62 in. (60 cm) wide, and 39.37 in. (100 cm) deep. A cabinet larger than the minimum requirement provides better airflow and reduces the chance of overheating. To accommodate a single router, the cabinet must be at least 34 U high with a clearance of 36.20 in. (91.95 cm) to accommodate a standard cable manager. It must be at least 40.15 in. (102 cm) to accommodate an extended cable manager.

The minimum front and rear clearance requirements depends on the mounting configuration you choose. The minimum total clearance inside the cabinet is 36.20 in. (91.95 cm) between the inside of the front door and the inside of the rear door.


If you are installing the MX2010 router into a network cabinet, make sure that no hardware, device, rack, or cabinet component obstructs the 34-U rack space from access during installation.
