Scenario 4: Mounting in a Network Box
Network cables used outdoors must be buried underground or routed through steel pipes to protect the
switch from lightening. Do not route network cables overhead.
Do not place a network box in an environment subject to intrusion of sulfur and water. Otherwise, the
switch may be eroded or short circuited by water. Protect the switch from dust. If possible, install air
filters on the outlets of the network box.
To protect network ports from lightning, use 8-line surge protectors or Huawei certified 4-line surge
protectors. When installing a network port surge protector, connect the IN ports to network devices and
connect the OUT ports to network ports of the switch.
Connect the ground cables of the switch and surge protectors to the ground bar in the network box.
If the network box is located outdoors and power cables are routed aerially over a long distance (more
than 300 m) to the network box, you are advised to install a power supply surge protector in the
network box. The decoupled power cable must be at least 3 m long, and a ground cable must be no
more than 40 cm long (recommended: < 15 cm).
Installing other Modules
5.1 Installing a Power Module
Some models of the S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700 series switches support hot swappable power
modules. Installation methods for different power modules are the same.
CAUTION
When installing a power module, slowly push it into the slot. If you feel resistance or find the module inclined, pull the module
out and push it into the slot again. Do not push the module with force; otherwise, the connectors on the module and
backplane may be damaged.
If only one power module is installed, install a power module filler panel in the empty power module slot.
It is recommended that you install two power modules in a switch to enhance power reliability if the switch supports double
power modules.

5.2 Installing a Card
Some models of the S3700&S5700 series switches support pluggable cards. Different pluggable cards are
installed in the same way. A 4-port front card is used as an example here to describe the installation procedure.
CAUTION
A card must be installed on switches that support the card. For the cards applicable to different switches, see "Cards" in the
Hardware Description.
Cards for the S3700-HI, S5700-HI, S5710-EI, S5710-HI, S5720-C-EI, S5720-PC-EI and S5720-HI are hot swappable, and
cards for the other switch models are not hot swappable.
Cards that do not support hot swappable cannot be installed when the switch is running. You must power off the switch,
install the cards, and then power on the switch to activate the cards.
When installing a card, slowly push it into the slot. If you feel resistance or find the card inclined, pull the card out and push it
into the slot again. Do not push the card with force; otherwise, the connectors on the card and backplane may be damaged.
