6500 Switches Installation

Dear sirs,

I'm an IT Consultant at CPM - Brazil and I'm installing some 6500 Catalyst switches. Is there any clearance recommendation above and below the cisco 6500 inside the 19 inch rack ?

Re: 6500 Switches Installation

Hi,

Multiple switches can be rack-mounted with little or no clearance above and below the chassis. However, when mounting a switch in a rack with other equipment, or when placing it on the floor near other equipment, ensure that the exhaust from other equipment does not blow into the air intake vent of the switch chassis.

Bobby
