Preparing for Installation

Preparing for Installation

Installation Environment

Environmental Requirements

For easy installation and maintenance:

  • Install the server in an access-restricted area.
  • Keep the area where the server is located clean and tidy.
  • Keep a clearance of 1200 mm (47.24 in.) away from the front and rear doors of the cabinet to heat dissipation and device maintenance.
  • Do not move the 9016 cabinet on casters on surfaces with a slope of greater than 10 degrees.

    Before moving the server, check that there is a clear path. If not, remove obstructions to create a clear path. When moving the server, use at least four persons or use hoisting equipment. Before installing the 9016 server, ensure that the load-bearing capacity of the floor is greater than 830 kg/m2.

Installation Space Requirements

Table 3-2 describes the installation space requirements of the 9016 server.

Table 3-2 Installation space requirements




Equipment room height

≥ 2.6 m (without doorsills)

≥ 2.6 m (without doorsills)

Door height (including the elevator door height)

≥ 2.1 m (6.89 ft)

≥ 2.4 m (7.87 ft)

Door width

≥ 1.0 m (3.28 ft)

≥ 1.2 m (3.94 ft)

Temperature and Humidity Requirements

For normal device operation:

  • Use temperature control devices regardless of climate or season.
  • In dry areas, mop the floor regularly or use a humidifier to increase humidity in the equipment room.
  • In humid areas, use a dehumidifier to decrease humidity in the equipment room.

Table 3-3 lists the requirements for the temperature and humidity in the equipment room.

Table 3-3 Temperature and humidity requirements




5°C to 40°C (41°F to 104°F) (ASHRAE Class A3 compliant, some configurations support a maximum of 35°C operating temperature)


8% RH to 80% RH

Ventilation Channel Requirements

The 9016 cabinet is equipped with fan modules for dissipating heat. Air is drawn in from the front and exhausted from the rear. The cabinet supports an ambient temperature range of 5°C to 40°C (41°F to 104°F). If a single fan module fails, the server supports the maximum operating temperature of 35°C (95°F).

The cabinet has three heat dissipation zones: two system compute enclosures (SCEs) and one central management enclosure (CME). Each SCE has eight fan modules, and a CME has two fan modules.

Figure 3-2 shows the air volumes required by the 9016 cabinet at different temperatures in different configurations.

Figure 3-2 Air volume required

Reliability Requirements

When installing a server, consider reliability requirements from the following aspects.

Transportation Reliability
  • Transport the server vertically by using a vehicle. The cabinet must stand upright and the vehicle must be taller than 2.45 m (8.04 ft).
  • Ensure that the load-bearing capacity of the pallet truck for moving the server is greater than 1500 kg (3307.50 lb).
  • Ensure that the load-bearing capacity of the vehicle's loading ramp is greater than 2000 kg (4410 lb).
  • Ensure that the elevator is higher than 2.45 m (8.04 ft) and has a load-bearing capacity of greater than 2000 kg (4410 lb).

The weight limits of the vehicle's loading ramp and elevator include four adults, a pallet truck, and a 9016 server with a package.

Installation Reliability
  • Fill all slots with either components or filler panels for optimal heat dissipation.
  • Leave enough space around the cabinet, with no barriers that block airflow.
  • Ensure that the ground cable is intact. Keep the ground cable slack and away from heat sources.
Heat Dissipation Reliability
  • Limit replacement time for hot-swappable modules to 1 minute.
  • Remove the barriers that block fan modules and leave enough space around the server for optimal ventilation.
  • Keep air vents unblocked and ensure that objects are at least 5 cm (1.97 in.) away from the air vents.
  • Install dummy DIMMs and memory board modules (MBMs) in vacant slots.
  • Ensure that the rear of each system compute enclosure (SCE) is airtight. On each back I/O module of model B (BIO-B), install plastic air baffles for non-hot-swappable PCIe cards without any external ports. Install dummy power supply units (PSUs) and local partition management modules (LPMs) in vacant slots for improved airflow.
Environment Reliability
  • Keep the server away from magnetized objects.
  • Adhere to the requirements for ambient temperature and humidity.

Installation Personnel

Equipment installation and cable connection must be performed by professional telecom equipment service personnel who have been trained to handle high-voltage or high-current equipment.

Installation personnel must be familiar with equipment power supply, cable connections, and engineering methods.

At least four persons are required to transport and install a server.

Installation Tools

Table 3-4 lists the tools required for installing the 9016.


Tools No. 15 to No. 20 are used for drilling holes. You do not need to prepare these tools if drilling holes is not required.

Power Supply and Grounding

Server power supply and grounding must meet the following requirements:

  • Power input

    When configured with a cabinet, the 9008 supports IEC60309 32 A single-phase three-core industrial plugs (Each industrial plug supports an input voltage range of 200 V to 240 V AC at 50 Hz or 60 Hz, with up to 32 A input.) and IEC60309 32 A three-phase five-core industrial plugs (Each industrial plug supports an input voltage range of 346 V to 415 V AC at 50 Hz or 60 Hz, with up to 32 A input.)

  • Surge protection

    Protect the equipment room with lightning conductors such as a lightning rod and lightning belt. The lightning conductors must be connected to the same grounding body as the protection ground of the equipment room.

  • Ground resistance

    Employ joint grounding in the equipment room, where the working ground, protection ground, and surge protection ground share the same grounding body. All communication equipment and power supplies in the equipment room must share one protection ground. The ground resistance of the cabinet must be less than 0.05 ohm.

  • Ground connection

    Ensure that the ground and the ground network of the equipment room are properly connected using at least 40 mm x 4 mm (1.57 in. x 0.16 in.) galvanized flat steel or an at least 30 m (98.42 ft) cable with a cross section of at least 95 mm² (0.15 in.²). The flat steel or cable must be insulated, corrosion-proof, and free from any break point or repair, and its exposed part must be protected against mechanical damage.

  • AC grounding

    Connect the ground cable of the AC power distribution frame (PDF) in the equipment room directly to the protection ground of the equipment room. The ground cable must be as thick as or thicker than the input live wire.
