Unpacking a QFX5110

The QFX5110 is a rigid sheet-metal structure that houses the hardware components. A QFX5110 is shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material. The carton also contains an accessory box and a Documentation Roadmap card.


The QFX5110 is maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack the switch until you are ready to begin installation.

To unpack a QFX5110:

  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 against the inventory included in the box. Table 1 lists the inventory of components supplied with a QFX5110.
  5. Pull out the packing material holding the switch in place.
  6. Verify the chassis components received:
    • Two power supplies

    • Five fan modules

    The QFX5110-32Q-CHAS is shipped without power supplies or fan modules.

  7. Save the shipping carton and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the switch later.
