QFX5700 Cable Management System

The QFX5700 Cable Management System consists of the following components.

  • Cable Manager

  • Cable Manager Assembly

  • Tray

  • Locking mechanism

Note:

You need to necessarily attach the Cable manager assembly when you install six or more line cards of the same model.

The cable manager allows you to manage a large number of fiber-optic and copper cables attached to the RCBs and FPCs installed in the QFX5700 switch. It is installed in the front of the QFX5700 chassis. Figure 1 shows the QFX5700 Cable Manager.
