Environmental Specifications

I've looked at the data sheets for the equipment in question, but haven't found the environmental specs that I need to satisfy my logistics requirments.

I've found all of the operating and nonoperating temperatures, but operating and nonoperating humidities and altitudes don't always seem to be included in the quotes specs.

Specifically, I'm looking for these numbers:

Cisco 5548UP: nonoperating (storage) altitude.

Cisco 2248TP: nonoperating (storage) altitude.

Cisco 6248UP: nonoperating (storage) altitude.

Ethernet SFPs: operating humidity, nonoperating humidity, operating altitude, nonoperating altitude.

Fibre Channel SFPs: operating humidity, nonoperating humidity, operating altitude, nonoperating altitude.

Is there someplace other than the datasheets on that I can look and find all of these environmental numbers in one place?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can point me at these numbers.

Environmental Specifications

I'm still looking for this information.

The non-operating specs let my customer verify that the equipment can be stored and shipped within certain conditions.

Obviously, Cisco equipment is shipped all over the world, but I need vendor documentation that these items of equipment are rated to survive exposure to altitudes above 4,572m (while powered off).

5548UP Nexus Switch

2248TP Fabric Extender

6248UP Fabric Interconnect

Can somebody point me in the right direction?

I think you will need to engage your Cisco authorized reseller.
