recommendation for ambient temperature

Hi,

for a detailed site planning I am searching for a recommendation from Cisco about the ambient temperature for Switches (2924XL,4500, 6500). In the specifications sheets I have found only a range of 0 - 40 °C and it´s very expensive to cool down a room to 0 °C and also I don´t think a C6500 switch can´t reach a mtbf of 7 years in a room with 40 °C.

THX for your ideas

Larry

Re: recommendation for ambient temperature

Have a look on the net for data center design/environment.

The following is from a SUN site:

Optimal data center temperature is 70 to 74F (21 to 23C)

Optimal relative humidity in a data center is: +45 to +50% RH

Cheers
