Site Preparation Checklist

Planning the location and layout of your equipment is essential for successful system operation, ventilation, and accessibility. Table C-1 lists the site planning tasks that we recommend completing before installing the Cisco UCS 6100 Series Fabric Interconnect.

Consider heat dissipation when sizing the air-conditioning requirements for an installation. See Table A-5 on page A-3 for the environmental requirements, and the "Power Specifications" section on page A-2 for power and heat ratings.
