Product Overview Product Overview The Cisco 7010 is the ﬁve-slot model in the Cisco 7000 series product line and the Cisco 7505 is the ﬁve-slot model in the Cisco 7500 series. Figure 1 shows the interface processor end of the Cisco 7010 chassis.
The cable management kit includes two brackets and fasteners to secure the brackets to the inner sides of the interface processor end of the chassis. By routing cables through the brackets and away from the interface ports, you can keep cables sorted and organized, provide strain relief for heavy or lengthy cables, and maintain clear access to interface processors and ports in the lower slots.
Prerequisites Lifting Safely Whenever you lift the chassis or any heavy object, follow these guidelines: • A fully conﬁgured chassis weighs approximately 70 pounds. Whenever possible, avoid lifting the chassis by yourself. • Ensure that your footing is solid and balance the weight of the object between your feet. •...
Equipment Racks Considerations The rack-mounting hardware included with the router is suitable for most 19-inch equipment racks or Telco-type racks. The chassis mounts to two posts or rails in the rack with two mounting ears, which attach to the sides of the chassis. Ideally, you should be able to access both ends of the router without having to remove it from the rack.
Prerequisites • If the rack has a vertical power strip or other obstacle, ensure that there is sufﬁcient clearance to install and remove processor modules. Allow at least 12 inches of clearance to pull the modules straight out of their slots. •...
• Install and use the cable management brackets included with the router to keep cables organized and out of the way. Consider the equipment and cabling that is already installed in the rack. Ensure that cables from other equipment will not impair access to the interface processors, or require you to disconnect cables unnecessarily to perform equipment maintenance or upgrades.
Rack-Mounting the Chassis Figure 3 Typical 19-Inch Equipment Rack Posts and Mounting Strips 18.312" hole C to C Mounting strips 17.72" min. If you are installing a new router, mount the chassis in the rack before connecting any interface or power cables.
Figure 4 Installing the Ears on the Chassis While referring to Figure 4, turn the chassis so that the end that will be in the front of the Step 4 rack is facing toward you. For example, Figure 4 shows the correct orientation for the router if the noninterface processor end will face out the front of the rack.
Rack-Mounting the Chassis Figure 5 Installing the Chassis in a Four-Post, 19-Inch Rack Warning Install heavier equipment near the bottom of the rack to maintain a low center of gravity. A top-heavy rack could easily tip over if it is not anchored or bolted to the ﬂoor, resulting in injury.

To install the chassis in the rack, follow these steps: On the chassis, ensure that all captive screws (on the processor modules and on the access Step 1 cover) are tightened. Make sure that your path to the rack is unobstructed. If the rack is on wheels, ensure that Step 2 the brakes are engaged or that the rack is otherwise immobilized.
Installing the Cable Management Brackets Installing the Cable Management Brackets The cable management brackets attach to the inner sides of the chassis at the interface processor end. (See Figure 7.) For this procedure, the Cisco 7010 and Cisco 7505 chassis are functionally the same. Note Use the brackets to keep network interface cables untangled and orderly, provide strain relief, and prevent cables from hindering access to interface processors in the lower interface processor slots.
