Installing the Hardware

Items Required

In addition to the materials and components provided in the OmniSwitch 6850 Series shipment, you must provide the following items in order to complete this installation:

Grounding wrist strap

Phillips screwdriver

Serial cable

Rack mount screws, if applicable

Site Preparation

Environmental Requirements

OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches have the following environmental and airflow requirements:

The installation site must maintain a temperature between 0° and 45° Celsius (32° and 113° Fahrenheit) and not exceed 95 percent maximum humidity (noncondensing) at any time.

Be sure to allow adequate room for proper air ventilation and access at the front, back, and sides of the switch. No clearance is necessary at the top or bottom of the chassis. Refer to page 6 for minimum clearance requirements.

Electrical Requirements

OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches have the following general electrical requirements:

Each switch requires one grounded AC power source.

Grounded AC power source must be 110V for North American installations (220V international).

Each supplied AC power cord is approximately 2 meters (6.5 feet) long. Do not use extension cords.

NEBS GR-1089Compliance Requirements

The following notes and warnings apply to all NEBS compliant platforms.

Grounding requirements: To ground the equipment properly, connect a Panduit Corporation UL listed Lug, P/N:LCD8-10ALto the two threaded holes located on the rear of each chassis and power supply module. All connections should be made using 8AWG copper conductors.

Use Panduit Corporation, P/N: CT-940CHfor crimping. (Each Module must have its own grounding conductor.)

(GR-1089requires treatment of ground connections and painted surfaces as needed during installation.)

Warning. Theintra-buildinginterfaces of this platform,

 

including Gigabit Ethernet, are suitable for connection to

shielded and grounded cables at both ends. The intra-building

 

ports of the equipment must not be metallically connected to

 

interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring.

 

 

 

 

 

Note. All bare conductors must be coated with an appro-

made. All unplated connectors, braided strap, and bus bars

 

 

are to be brought to a bright finish and then coated with an

4 Installing the Hardware

June 2007

Items Included

Your OmniSwitch 6850 Series switch order includes the following items:

OmniSwitch 6850 Series chassis

Rack mount flanges with attachment screws (rack mount flanges may be pre-installedon some orders)

Power cord (country-specific)

Documentation CD containing a complete set of user guides for the switch and switch software. Refer to “Related Documentation” on page 2 for a complete list of included documentation.

Depending on the items ordered for your specific network requirements, the following optional items may also be included:

Stacking cables (per order)

SFPs (per order)

10-GigabitXFPs (per order)

Backup power supply components and cables (per order)

Unpacking and Initial Setup

Unpacking the Chassis

To protect your OmniSwitch chassis and hardware components from electrostatic discharge (ESD) and physical damage, read all unpacking recommendations and instructions carefully before beginning.

Recommendations

Unpack your OmniSwitch chassis as close as possible to the location where it will be installed.

Depending on your order, Small Form-FactorPluggables (SFPs), stacking cables and backup power supply components may be packaged separately. In order to greatly reduce exposure to electrostatic discharge (ESD) and physical damage, do not unpack these items until they are ready to be installed.

Instructions

1Carefully cut the tape along the seam at the top of the box containing the chassis.

2Lift the box’s top flaps. Remove any smaller boxes or pouches that are enclosed and set them aside.

3Lift the chassis out of the packaging.

4 Carefully remove any foam pads and protective plastic from the switch chassis.

Note. Alcatel-Lucentprovidesfactory-installedblank cover plates for empty backup power supply or10-Giga-bit expansion module bays. Do not remove these cover plates unless a backup power supply or expansion module is to be installed immediately at the corresponding bay.

5If you are installing multiple switches in a stacked configuration, repeat steps 1 through 4 for the remaining switches that will make up the stack.

6Once all OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches have been removed from their packaging, continue to “Setting Up the Switch.”

Setting Up the Switch

Note. Due to their airflow and access requirements, OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches cannot be wallmounted.

Airflow Considerations

Be sure that your switch is placed in a well-ventilated,staticfree environment. Always allow adequate clearance at the front, rear, and sides of the switch.

The following diagram shows recommended minimum clearances for adequate chassis airflow and access to components at the rear of the chassis:

Rear. 5 inches minimum at rear of chassis.

Sides. 2 inches minimum at left and right sides for chassis airflow.

Front. 6 inches minimum at front of chassis for cable access and LED visibility.
