All IP Office control units and external expansion modules can be rack mounted into standard 19" rack systems. Each unit requires a 2U slot space within the rack. Rack mounting requires a kit for each control unit and external expansion module.
Where systems are being rack mounted, the effect of conditions within the rack cabinet must be considered. For example, the rack temperature may be above the room temperature and airflow within the rack is restricted. The environmental requirements for the individual IP Office units are still applicable inside the rack cabinet.
