Installing and Removing QFX5100 Device Hardware Components

The QFX5100 switch chassis is a rigid sheet-metal structure that houses the hardware components. The field-replaceable units (FRUs) in QFX5100 devices are:

  • Power supply

  • Fan module

  • Expansion module (QFX5100-24Q and QFX5100-24Q-AA only)

  • SFP+ transceiver
