Vertiv Geist SwitchAir

Vertiv Geist SwitchAirVertiv Geist SwitchAir helps prevent failure by channeling cool air from the front of the rack to the air intakes regardless of where the equipment is mounted. The SwitchAir is a passive airflow management device with channels providing a dedicated path for cold aisle air to flow to the intake of the switch, using the on-board fans of the network devices to pull cool air from the front of the cabinet. The SwitchAir also creates a barrier preventing recirculation of hot exhaust air from the hot aisle from entering switch intakes.

The SwitchAir is required when network switches, load balancers and routers sit at the top and back portion of the rack, away from the cold aisle airflow at the front of the cabinet. This placement makes it difficult for cold air to flow from the front of the rack to the air intakes of the network switch equipment, increasing chances of failure over time.

Vertiv Geist SwitchAir Benefits

  • Reduces the chance of network switches overheating by directing cool air to device intakes.
  • Reduces the likelihood of premature equipment failure due to high intake temperatures.
  • Improves equipment efficiency by providing network equipment with the same cold aisle air temperature as other devices in the rack.
  • Decreases wraparound hot airflow from the hot aisle to the cold aisle due to missing blanking panels.
  • Standard three-year warranty, upgraded to five years with product registration.
  • Simple and quick installation in all standard racks or cabinets.
  • TAA and/or BAA compliant.
