Switching & Routing Racks

Switching & Routing Racks - ideal for housing high-end switching & routing equipment


Many pieces of switching and routing equipment require a different airflow that the customary ‘front-to-back’ cooling. If 'such a switch' is included in a containment configuration, situations in which the equipment receives insufficient cold air, internal recirculation of the air occurs, and as a result one switch blows hot air into the next, must be avoided. In addition to the airflow/cooling, it is important to take account of the amount of cabling and the possibility of hot-swapping fans and power modules. To create enough space for the network cables and the airflow from right to left, Minkels has developed a specialised Switching & Routing rack.


Minkels switching & routing racks are ideal for housing high-end switching & routing equipment (e.g. Cisco 6500 & 7000 series). The racks combine the best possible cooling performance with capacity for a large amount of network cabling.


Cooling integration

Rack cooling strategy is front to back. Air flow inside the rack is managed to support required air flows in and around the switching and routing equipment without interfering with the network cabling.


Cable Management

Cable Tray (300mm) for vertical cable management in front of the rack (1000mm wide rack only)

Cable clips for vertical cable management in front of the rack (800mm wide rack only)
