To Install a Quad port 10g Fiber Bypass Network Interface Card (NIC) into an Advance Threat Protection (ATP) 8880
Remove existing copper bypass NIC from slot 7. Store for contingency and testing purposes. NOTE: Do not insert the existing copper bypass NIC into a different slot in the ATP8880 chassis.
