This section describes how to prepare for and physically install a Sonus SBC 2000 system.

Installing the Sonus SBC 2000 Chassis in a 4-Post Equipment Rack

The Sonus SBC 2000 chassis can be installed in a standard 19-inch, 4-post equipment racks. Mounting hardware is provided for racks with 24-inch and 30-inch depths.

Before installing the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis in a 4-post equipment rack, you must first assemble and attach the 2 rear support brackets to the two rear rack posts.

To Assemble and Install the Sonus SBC 2000 Rear Support Brackets

  1. In the mounting hardware bag provided with the Sonus SBC 2000 system, find the rear support brackets (2) and 9-inch extension arms (2).
  2. If you are installing the Sonus SBC 2000 system into a 30-inch depth rack, attach the extension arms to the support brackets.
  3. Attach the support brackets securely to the two rear posts of your equipment rack. Refer to the illustration below for visual details of the assembly:

The illustration above shows the rear bracket assembly for a rack with a 30-inch depth. For racks with a 24-inch depth, do not use the 9-inch extension arm and attach each support bracket directly to the rear rack posts.

To Install Sonus SBC 2000 in a 4-Post Equipment Rack

  1. Attach the 2 rack mounting ears securely to the front corners of the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis.
  2. Attach the 2 pan handle plates securely to the rear corners of the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis.
  3. Working with a partner, lift the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis and slide it into the equipment rack, making sure to seat each pan handle plate into the support brackets mounted on the rear support posts.
  4. Attach the 2 rack mounting ears securely to the front mounting posts of the equipment rack. Refer to the illustration below for visual details of the installation (click to enlarge).

Do not block the air vents on either side of the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis. Both sides of the unit must clear to ensure proper cooling of the unit.

Installing the Sonus SBC 2000 Chassis in a 2-Post Equipment Rack

The Sonus SBC 2000 chassis can be installed in a standard 19-inch, 2-post equipment racks by attaching the rack mounting ears to the middle attachment points on both sides of the chassis.

DO NOT mount the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis using only the rack ears attached to the front corners on a 2-post equipment rack. Mounting the chassis using only the front mount rack ears will not provide adequate mechanical support and can cause damage the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis and other equipment in the rack.

To Install Sonus SBC 2000 in a 2-Post Equipment Rack

  1. Attach the 2 rack mounting ears securely to the center mounting points on both sides of the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis.
  2. Attach the 2 rack mounting ears securely to the mounting posts of the equipment rack. Refer to the illustration below for visual details of the installation (click to enlarge).

Installing Interface Cards

Sonus SBC 2000 interface cards are delivered separately from the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis. Install the cards in the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis before powering on the unit. For more information about Sonus SBC 2000 interface cards, see Sonus SBC 2000 Interface Cards. For more information about installing and removing interface cards, see Inserting and Removing Interface Cards.

You must power down the Sonus SBC 2000 system before installing or removing Interface Cards. Hot swapping of Interface Cards is not supported.

 

 

To Insert an Interface Card

  1. Carefully insert the card so that the left and right edges slide into the mounting slots.
  2. Grip the outside of the attachment levers and push toward the inside of the card until the card locks into place.
    The red buttons click and pop out when the card is properly locked into place.
  3. Tighten the screws on the right and left side of the interface card.

Installing Ground Wire, Power Cables and Connect Power

After you have completed the physical installation of the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis, connect the grounding wire and power cables

To Install the Grounding Wire and Power Cables

  1. Connect a grounding wire to the grounding bolt on the left side of the rear panel, in accordance with System Grounding Requirements.
  2. Connect power cords to the power supply and electrical sockets.

    If your equipment rack provides dual power circuits and your unit is equipped with a dual power supply, make sure to plug each power supply into a separate power circuit.

DO NOT INSTALL EITHER Sonus or TELECOM CABLES. You must complete the Initial Configuration before connecting the Sonus SBC 2000 system to your network.

Installing the Cable Management Bracket

In order to provide cable strain relief for cables connected to Sonus SBC 2000 interface cards, a cable management bracket is provided.

To Install the Cable Management Bracket

  1. Place the cable management bracket on top of the pan handle plates.

    If you have installed the Sonus SBC 2000 chassis in a 2-post configuration, you must install the pan handle plates on the rear corners of the chassis.

  2. Use the provided cable ties to secure the cable management bracket to the pan handle plates. Refer to the illustration below for visual details of the installation (click to enlarge).

 

DO NOT INSTALL EITHER Sonus or TELECOM CABLES. You must complete the Initial Configuration before connecting the Sonus SBC 2000 system to your network.

Next Steps

You are now ready to complete the initial configuration of the Sonus SBC 2000 system. Proceed to Running Initial Setup.
