Installing the OSP Card in the Switch

Installing the OSP Card in the Switch


  • Before installing an OSP card into a slot, remove the filler panel from the slot.
  • Wear an ESD wrist strap or a pair of ESD gloves when you install the card. Do not touch the card with bare hands.
  • When installing an OSP card, push the card slowly and horizontally into the slot along guide rails to protect components on the cards from collisions.
  • Do not touch the electronic devices on the card during the installation.
  • Cover all the vacant slots with filler panels to ensure good electromagnetic shielding, heat dissipation, and dustproof performance.


ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves


  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap and insert the other end into the ESD jack on the cabinet, or wear ESD gloves.
  2. Remove the card to be replaced or filler panel on the slot.
    1. Release the locks on the ejector levers at both sides of the card, and then open the ejector levels to eject the card from the connector on the backplane. See callout 1 in Figure 2-4.
    2. Grasp the ejector levers and pull out the card slowly along with the guide rails. See callout 2 in Figure 2-4.

    Keep the removed filler panel in an appropriate place for later use.

  3. Install the OSP card.
    1. Slowly push the card into the slot until the card is securely connected to the backplane. See callout 1 in Figure 2-5.
    2. Rotate the ejector levers inwards to secure the card. See callout 2 in Figure 2-5. When you hear a click from the ejector levers, the card is properly installed.

  4. Observe the RUN/ALM indicator on the new card.

    • If the RUN/ALM indicator blinks green fast, the card is starting.
    • If the RUN/ALM indicator blinks green slowly, the card is running normally.
