Environmental Questions

Unanswered Question
Aug 5th, 2008

Can someone advise please why the Cisco 2800 and 3800 series have different environmental ratings? For example, the stated storage temperature for the 2800 is -20 to +65 deg C whereas the 3800 series has a wider range of -40 to +85 deg C. Being similar platforms you would expect a similar rating?

Also I would like to know what the vibration and shock measurements are for these platforms to see if they are capable in a ruggedised role. Any information or literature will be greatly appreciated.

Now For the Cisco 2811 platform, the temperature threshold was adjusted in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.4(3). With this Cisco IOS Software release, the fans will stay at low speed until the intake temperature reaches approximately 39°C/102°F. Prior to this release, the threshold was approximately 34°C/93°F. For the Cisco 2801, the temperature threshold is determined in hardware and no changes have been made. These trip points cannot be adjusted in the field.
