Which NetShelter cabinets are now Cisco Certified for pre-racking and shipping with UCS equipment?

Issue:
Customers are asking which cabinets are Cisco Certified for shipping with UCS components pre-integrated. 

Product Line:
NetShelter SX SP and SX Micro DC

Environment: 
AR3100SP, MDC42SX5KVAT and MDC42SX5KVAI, all serial ranges.

Cause:
Cisco has certified NetShelter Shock Package cabinets to be pre-integrated with Cisco UCS product and ship with the equipment installed. 

Resolution:

APC, the leading provider of physical infrastructure for data centers & integrated IT solutions is proud to announce - the NetShelter SX with Shock Packaging has undergone the rigorous packaging testing & approval process with Cisco for pre-racking and shipping their Unified Computing System (UCS) products & is NOW CERTIFIED by Cisco!

APC has always been the physical infrastructure powerhouse for UCS solutions. With this certification, the option to PRE-INTEGRATE a Cisco UCS in APC cabinet infrastructure and SHIP IT, provides an end-to-end solution for partners & plug-and-play experience for end users.

Before this certification - shipping in a non-Cisco rack would void the UCS warranty. UCS would ship separate for onsite install. Now a full converged UCS solution can be wrapped in a certified NetShelter SX with Shock Packaging! The cabinet "base building block" now brings Schneider Electric's InfraStruxure data center and Micro DC SX Xpress edge to Cisco converged architectures! 

The cabinets that are certified are: AR3100SP, MDC42SX5KVAT and MDC42SX5KVAI.
