Unpacking and Checking the Products

Unpacking and Checking the Products

This section describes the procedure and precaution for unpacking and checking the products before installation has started.

Checking the Package Container

Before unpacking and checking the products, check whether the package container is intact.


  1. Unload the products.

    To facilitate checking, when unloading the products, arrange the packages in order and make sure that the product labels on the packages face the same direction.

  2. After unloading the products, check whether the total number of the products is the same as the number indicated on the Packing List. Check whether the destination of delivery is the same as the actual installation site.



    The total number of products is the same as the number indicated on the Packing List, and the products are delivered to the correct destination.

    Perform step 4.

    The total number of products is different from the number indicated on the Packing List, or the products are delivered to the wrong destination.

    Perform step 3.

  3. The engineering supervisor must send the Cargo Inspection Feedback Form that is confirmed and signed by the customer to the order management engineer in the local Huawei representative office within three days. At the same time, stop unpacking the products.
  4. Check whether the exterior of the package container is intact. Check whether the package container is placed correctly during transportation.



    The package is intact.

    Unpack and check the products.

    The package is seriously damaged or shows signs of water intrusion.

    Perform step 5.

  5. Stop unpacking the products. Trace the cause and report the problem to the order management engineer of the local Huawei representative office. Then wait for further assistance.

    To protect the device and trace the cause, transfer the unpacked device indoors to ensure proper storage. Take photographs of the storage site, any rusted or corroded device, package in question, and package materials. Preserve the package and unpacked materials.

Unpacking the Wooden Case

Wooden cases are used to pack heavy goods such as racks, cabinets and batteries. Cabinet packaging consists of wooden panels, steel edges, tongues, and foam plates. If possible, move the wooden case into or near the equipment room and then unpack the cabinet to avoid damaging the cabinet during transportation.


  • When carrying the cabinet, always hold on to a more durable part of the cabinet, such as the support or the rack. Do not exert force on the more fragile parts, such as the cable support or the cable fixing beam. Doing so may damage the cabinet or cause an injury. Remove the backing blocks from the rack only after the cabinet is carried to the installation site to avoid damaging signal cables and boards during transportation.
  • Correctly orient the wooden case. Do not place the wooden case upside-down. Doing so may severely damage the device.


  1. Put on protective gloves.
  2. Place the wooden case on the ground. Make sure that the case is level and the pallet side faces downwards.
  3. Insert one end of the spanner into the hole of the tongue on the cover of the wooden case. Lift the spanner to straighten the tongue, as shown in Figure 2-1. (You can also use a screwdriver or a claw hammer to straighten the tongue.)

    1 Steel edge

    2 Wooden panel

    3 Tongue

    4 Spanner

    Tongue edges are sharp and may cause injury.

  4. After straightening all the tongues on the cover, remove the cover as shown in Figure 2-2.

    Figure 2-2  Removing the cover

  5. Straighten all the tongues that hold together the side wooden panels and remove the side wooden panel, as shown in Figure 2-3.

  6. Stand the cabinet upright. Remove the pallet, foam plates, and package bag.

    Three to five peoples are required to stand the cabinet up. If the cabinet tips over, injuries may occur.

  7. Check the following items:

    • The appearance of the cabinet. Ensure that the exterior (especially the bottom) of the cabinet is intact, free from water penetration, distortion, and rust.
    • The cabinet door. Ensure that the cabinet door can be opened and closed normally.
    • The cabinet surface. Ensure that the cabinet surface is clean, neat, and completely painted.
    • The labels on the cabinet. Ensure that the labels on the cabinet are correct, legible, and complete.

Unpacking the Carton

Cartons contain cables, boards, and terminal devices.


  1. Read the carton label carefully to understand the types and quantities of the boards in the carton.
  2. Cut off packing straps with diagonal pliers.
  3. Cut the tape along the seams of the carton cover with a paper knife. Do not penetrate the carton with the knife more than is necessary as this may damage the carton contents.
  4. Open the carton and take out the foam plates.
  5. Check the label on the box that contains the board, and check whether the board quantity is consistent with the quantity indicated on the carton label. Then, take out the boxes.
  6. Wear an ESD wrist strap and ground it correctly. Unpack the ESD bag that contains the board. Check whether the board has any obvious damage.
  7. Check the types and quantity of boards in the carton against the Packing List. The Packing List must be confirmed and signed on site by the customer.

    Figure 2-4 shows the procedure for unpacking the carton.

    9 Board

    Do not throw away any carton containing boards. It is recommended that one person unpacks one carton. After unpacking a carton, make sure that it is empty before unpacking another carton.

Checking the Boards

This section describes the criteria for checking boards.

Before installing the boards, clean the chassis and cabinet. Wear an ESD wrist strap when removing the board from the antistatic package. Check whether the board name is consistent with the identifier on the package, and whether any device is damaged or any component is missing.

Check the pins on the backplane of the chassis. The pins should be straight and clean. Repair any bent pins on the backplane board slots.

The boards are sensitive to Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). When handling boards, observe the following rules:

  • Check whether the device is safely grounded.

  • Wear an ESD wrist strap during the installation.

  • Ensure that the metal button on the ESD wrist strap is in complete contact with your skin and that the other end of the strap (ESD connector) is inserted into the ground point on the device.

  • Ensure that the wrist strap is working properly. Its resistance value must be between 0.75 megohm and 10 megohm. If the service life (usually two years) of the wrist strap has been exceeded or the resistance value fails to meet requirements, replace the wrist strap.

  • Do not touch the board with your clothes. The ESD wrist strap cannot protect the board from ESD when it is in contact with clothes.

  • Wear ESD gloves and place the board on an antistatic pad when replacing the chip of the board. Use antistatic tweezers or extraction tools to replace chips. Do not touch chips, circuits, or pins with your bare hands.

  • Keep the board and other ESD sensitive parts to be installed in antistatic bags. Place the removed boards and components on an antistatic pad or other antistatic materials. Do not use non-antistatic materials such as white foams, common plastic bags, or paper bags to pack boards and do not let such materials touch boards.

  • Wear an ESD wrist strap when operating the ports of boards as they are also ESD-sensitive. Discharge the static electricity of cables and protective sleeves before connecting them to the ports.

  • Reserve some materials that can hold boards, such as vacuum formed boxes and antistatic bags, in the equipment room for later use.
