INSTALLATION
This chapter contains Dual E3 Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
Network Interface Card (NIC) installation information.
Installation Tools
To install this NIC in the Total Control chassis, you need a #2 Phillips and
flat-head screwdriver.
Installation
Procedure
To install this NIC:
ESD: To reduce the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD), take proper
grounding precautions before handling the NIC.
Install the NIC with or without power applied to the chassis.
1 Select a slot at the rear of the Total Control chassis for installing the NIC.
Install this NIC in slots: 1–17
CAUTION: The Dual E3 ATM NIC must be installed behind a HiPer Access
Router Card (ARC) Network Application Card (NAC).
2-2
CHAPTER 2: INSTALLATION
For managed chassis, slot 17 is reserved for a NIC corresponding to the
Network Management Card (NMC).
2 Use a #2 Phillips screwdriver to remove the safety panel covering
this slot.
Installation Procedure
2-3
3 Insert the NIC between the slot’s upper and lower card guides.
4 Slide the NIC into the chassis, until the front of the NIC is flush with the
chassis.
2-4
CHAPTER 2: INSTALLATION
5 Use a flat-head screwdriver to tighten the screws on the front panel.
6 Cover any unused chassis slots with safety panels.
7 Install the HiPer ARC NAC. Refer to the HiPer ARC NAC Getting Started
Guide for more information.
