Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you talking about physical location in the rack?  Routers can be installed anywhere in the rack.
Edit:

Place it where it makes sense with regards to cable management.  In addition, if in a structured data center, there is typically a plan for the air flow, such as a hot and cold aisle.  This may have some bearing on how you place your router so that the fan pulls the air in the proper direction.
