Installing and Removing QFX3600 or QFX3600-I Device Hardware Components

The QFX3600 or QFX3600-I device chassis is a rigid sheet-metal structure that houses the hardware components. The field-replaceable units (FRUs) in QFX3600 and QFX3600-I devices are:

  • Power supplies

  • Fan trays

  • SFP transceivers on management ports labeled C0S and C1S
