Cisco CRS Carrier Routing System 8-Slot Line Card Chassis Site Planning Guide


Chapter 4 Site Planning Considerations

Tools Required for Installation

In addition, make sure that the installation site meets the following access requirements:

At least 48 inches (122 cm) of clearance exists between rows of equipment racks. This space is
needed to access components in the chassis. Additional clearance may be necessary for installation.

Enough room exists for the system console terminal, and that the console cable is long enough to
reach the routing system from the terminal.

Fan tray exhaust vents are not blocked, and airflow at the bottom of the chassis is not blocked.

When planning the site, you should think about potential expansion of the system. Consider the

Equipment rack space for additional chassis

Power and cooling requirements for additional chassis

Cable management for routing system cables

Tools Required for Installation
