Device upgradtion consideration

It's important to consider certain things when upgrading to a newer device.
  • Rack Space
  • power [ AC/ DC / socket type ( C14/C15 - C19/C20 etc)
  • Rack type and mounting brackets and screws
  • IOS Feature comparison does all the features supported in the newer image - double check [ sometime we downgrade the device eg: move the powerful device where most needed]
  • Access to the technicians
  • Interface Type and fibre patch cords [ lc / sc / fc ] , length.
  • If we are moving the device from a different location, ensure that it is properly transported and wrapped in appropriate cartons before proceeding with the migration plan.
