When the appliance is securely mounted on the rack, you are ready to connect the cables. Ethernet cables and the optional console cable are connected first. Connect the power cable last.
Ethernet cables connect your appliance to the network. The type of cable you need depends on the type of port used to connect to the network. Use a category 5e or category 6 Ethernet cable with a standard RJ-45 connector on a 10/100/1000BASE-T port.
The CloudBridge 4000/5000 appliance has two power supplies, with one serving as a backup. A separate ground cable is not required, because the three-prong plug provides grounding. Power up the appliance by installing one or both power cords.
