Wall-mounted Ethernet switch, how to install?

by Simon Richter   Last Updated July 26, 2018 16:21 PM

I have a wall-mounted Ethernet switch that is supposed to be mounted partially inside a wall or panel. There is a mounting bracket included that would fit a standard 60mm can, however the switch does not fit in there, as it uses the rectangular area of the mounting bracket.

Mounting bracket, 60mm can and appropriate drill

My suspicion is that this is a collision of a product for the US market with German wiring standards. How would I mount such a bracket to a wall properly, leaving a close to rectangular space inside the wall below the opening (the switch doesn't protrude far into the wall, 1cm should be enough)?
