The S6000 supports splitting a single 40G QSFP+ port into four 10G SFP+ ports using one of the
supported breakout cables. This splitting is not allowed on ports 4, 12, 20, 28, 100, 108, 116, and 124.
When you use the fanout feature, the 40G QSFP+ port is deleted and four 10G SFP+ ports are created.
QSFP+ ports have eight LEDs associated with each stack of two ports; four for the top and four for the
bottom ports. You can configure each port as a single 40G port or four10G ports. When configured as a
40G port, only the first of the four LEDs is used. When configured as four 10G ports, all four LEDs are
used to indicate the status. Table 2-2 lists the LED status and Table 2-3 lists the management port LED
status.

www.dell.com | support.dell.com
Site Selection
Dell Network’s equipment is intended for installation in restricted access areas. A restricted access area is
one in which access can only be gained by service personnel through the use of a special tool, lock, key,
or other means of security and access is controlled by the authority responsible for the location.
Ensure that the area where the S6000 system is installed meets the following safety requirements:
• Near an adequate power source. Connect the system to the appropriate branch circuit protection as
defined by your local electrical codes.
• Environmental temperature between 32° to 113°F (0° to 45°C).
• Relative humidity that does not exceed 90% non-condensing.
• In a dry, clean, well-ventilated and temperature-controlled room, away from heat sources such as hot air
vents or direct sunlight.
• Away from sources of severe electromagnetic noise.
• Positioned in a rack or cabinet, or on a desktop with adequate space in the front, rear, and sides of the
S6000 for proper ventilation and access.
Cabinet Placement
Install the S6000 only in indoor cabinets designed for use in a controlled environment as described in Site
Selection. Do not install the S6000 in outside plant cabinets.
The cabinet must meet the following:
• Minimum cabinet size and airflow are according to the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) standard.
Rack Mount
When you prepare your equipment rack, ensure that the rack is earth ground. Ground the equipment rack
to the same ground point used by the power service in your area. The ground path must be permanent.
Ground
Use the S6000 in a CBN. Connect the grounding cables as described in Chapter 4, Install the S6000.
Fans and Airflow
The S6000 fans support two airflow options. Be sure to order the fans suitable to support your site’s
ventilation. Use a single type of airflow fan in your system. Do not mix reverse and normal airflows in a
single S6000 chassis.
18
|
Site Location and Preparation
Fan Combinations
The S6000 has stock keeping units (SKUs) that support the following configurations. Installation of the
fans is done as part of the factory install based on SKU type.
• AC PSU with fan airflow from I/O to PSU
• AC PSU with fan airflow from PSU to I/O
• DC PSU with fan airflow from I/O to PSU
• DC PSU with fan airflow from PSU to I/O
All fans and PSUs in a configuration must be in the same airflow direction. Should a mixed airflow
configuration happen, the software notifies you of the invalid configuration.
The S6000 supports three fan trays with airflow directions from the I/O to the utility or the utility to
the I/O.
For proper ventilation, position the S6000 in an equipment rack (or cabinet) with a minimum of
five inches (12.7cm) of clearance around the exhaust vents. When you install two S6000 systems near
each other, position the two chassis at least five inches (12.7cm) apart to permit proper airflow. The fan
speed increases when the internal temperature reaches 72°C and decreases to normal speed when the

Regulatory information booklet before you begin.
NOTE: The illustrations in this document are not intended to represent a specific switch.
NOTE: Do not the use the mounted Ready-Rails as a shelf or a workplace.
Rack Mount Safety Considerations
• Rack loading — Overloading or uneven loading of racks may result in shelf or rack failure, causing
damage to the equipment and possible personal injury. Stabilize racks in a permanent location before
loading begins. Mount the components beginning at the bottom of the rack, then work to the top. Do not
exceed your rack load rating.
• Power considerations — Connect only to the power source specified on the unit. When multiple
electrical components are installed in a rack, ensure that the total component power ratings do not
exceed the circuit capabilities. Overloaded power sources and extension cords present fire and shock
hazards.
• Elevated ambient temperature — If installed in a closed rack assembly, the operating temperature of
the rack environment may be greater than the room ambient temperature. Use care not to exceed the
40°C maximum ambient temperature of the switch.

Installing an AC or DC Power Supply
The S6000 supports two hot-swappable PSUs with integrated fans that provide cooling for the system.
The S6000 supports AC and DC power supplies with two air-flow directions (I/O to PSU or PSU to I/O).
Two PSUs are required for full redundancy, but the system will operate with a single PSU.
NOTE: S6000 ships with two PSUs. However, it is possible to run the unit with a single PSU. If you use a
single PSU, install a blank plate in the other PSU slot. Dell Networking recommends using power supply 1
(PSU1) as the blank plate slot.
The PSUs are field replaceable. When running with full redundancy (two power supplies installed and
running), you can remove and replace one PSU while the other PSU is running without disrupting traffic.
The S6000 does not support mixing PSU types. You cannot replace an AC PSU with a DC PSU and you
cannot replace an AC-R PSU with a DC-R PSU.
WARNING: ESD damage can occur if components are mishandled. Always wear an ESD-preventive wrist or
heel ground strap when handling the S6000 and its components.
CAUTION: To prevent electrical shock, ensure the S6000 is grounded properly. If you do not ground your

The S6000 has 32 40Gbps QSFP+ optical ports.
WARNING: ESD damage can occur if components are mishandled. Always wear an ESD-preventive wrist or
heel ground strap when handling the S6000 and its components.
WARNING: When working with optical fibers, follow all warning labels and always wear eye protection. Never
look directly into the end of a terminated or unterminated fiber or connector, which may cause eye damage.
To install QSFP+ optics into an open port, follow these steps:
Position the optic so it is in the correct position. The optic has a key that prevents it from being
inserted incorrectly.
2 Insert the optic into the port until it gently snaps into place.
LR4 optics can be installed only on top row front end ports 4, 12, 20, 28, 36, 44, 52, 60, 68, 76, 84, 92,
100, 108, 116, and 124.

NOTE: Both rows of QSFP+ ports require that you insert the 40G optics with the tabs facing up.
Remove QSFP+ Optics
Remove an optic by pushing the tab on the optic and sliding the optic from the port.
When removing optics with direct attach cables (DACs) from the port, pull the release tab firmly and
steadily. Prior to pulling the release tab, you may need to gently push the optic into the port to ensure it is
seated properly. Do not jerk or tug repeatedly on the tab.
Split QSFP+ Ports to SFP+ Ports
The S6000 supports splitting a single 40G QSFP+ port into four 10G SFP+ ports using one of the
supported breakout cables. This splitting is not allowed on ports 4, 12, 20, 28, 100, 108, 116, and 124.
When you use the fanout feature, the 40G QSFP+ port is deleted and four10G SFP+ ports are created.
For the system to recognize the port type change, enter the stack-unit portmode command.
For example:
stack-unit
stack-unit port number portmode quad
• stack-unit: Enter the stack member unit identifier of the stack member to reset. The range is from 0 to 5.
• number: Enter the port number of the 40G port to be split. The range is from 0 to 124.
Important Points to Know:
• The unit number with the split ports must be the default (stack-unit 0). You can verify this using the
show system brief command.
• The quad port must be in a default configuration before you can split it into four 10G ports. The 40G
port is lost in the configuration when you split the port, so be sure that the port is also removed from
other L2/L3 feature configurations.
