AT-CV5M01Management Card

The AT-CV5M01Management Card provides a CPU subsystem for theAT-CV5000chassis as well as theAT-S70management software preinstalled that allows you to configure and monitor the status of the converter line cards. For more information about theAT-S70management software, refer to theAT-S70 Management Software User’s Guide.

The AT-CV5000chassis is shipped without anAT-CV5M01Management

Card and therefore is by default an unmanaged chassis.

Note

The AT-CV5M01Management Card ishot-swappableand you can insert it in any line card slot without powering OFF the chassis.

The AT-CV5M01Management Card, as shown inFigure 6, features the following components:

One RS-232terminal port with aDB-9connector for a local management session

One 10/100Base-TXtwisted pair port with anRJ-45connector for a remote management session

These default settings are for a DEC VT100 or ANSI terminal, or an equivalent terminal emulation program.

Note

This terminal port does not allow you to connect to any module present in the expansion slot located in the rear of the chassis. To connect to a module in the rear expansion slot, you must use the RS-232terminal port on the LED interface card, as described in“LED Interface Card” on page 21.

The 10/100Base-TXtwisted pair port on the management card allows you to establish a remote management session and has a maximum operating distance of 100 meters (328 feet). The port has an8-pinRJ-45connector. For the port pinouts, refer to“RJ-45 Twisted Pair Port Pinouts” on

page 103.

The twisted pair port is 10/100Base-TXIEEE 802.3uAuto-Negotiationcompliant and is capable of both 10 megabits per second (Mbps) and 100 Mbps speeds. You can set the port speed manually through theAT-S70management software or allow the port to set it automatically. With AutoNegotiation, the management card automatically matches the highest possible common speed between the port and the Ethernet hub or switch. For example, if the Ethernet hub or switch is capable of only 10 Mbps, the management card sets the port connected to the end node to 10 Mbps.

Note

Auto-Negotiationis the default setting on the twisted pair port on the management card. To deactivateAuto-Negotiationand set the speed manually, refer to theAT-S70 Management Software User’s Guide.

The twisted pair port on the management card can operate in either halfor full-duplexmode. The twisted pair port is IEEE802.3u-compliantand willAuto-Negotiatethe duplex mode setting. You can disable AutoNegotiation and set the duplex mode manually using theAT-S70management software.

Note

In order for the twisted pair port on the management card to successfully Auto-Negotiateits duplex mode with an end node, the end node should also be usingAuto-Negotiation.Otherwise, a duplex mode mismatch can occur. Therefore, when you connect an

end node with a fixed duplex mode of full-duplexto a management card port, you should use theAT-S70management software to disableAuto-Negotiationon the port and set the port speed and duplex mode manually.

For 10 Mbps operation, Category 3 or better, 100 Ohm shielded or unshielded, twisted pair cabling is required. For 100 Mbps operation, Category 5 or Enhanced Category 5 (5E), 100 Ohm shielded or unshielded, twisted pair cabling is required.

The recessed CPU RESET button allows you to reset only the management card. You may need to reset the management card after upgrading the firmware or after you have made a configuration change that requires resetting the module to activate the change.

Note

This reset button does not reset the line cards and/or the module installed in the expansion slot at the rear of the chassis.

Converteon™ Line Cards

Link Test

MissingLink™

Note

For a current list of line cards for the Converteon™ Series Chassis, refer to the Allied Telesis web site or consult your authorized sales representative. For detailed descriptions of these line cards, refer to the documentation shipped with the line cards and/or the

Converteon™ Media Converter Line Cards Reference Guide.

On some Converteon™ line cards, you can enable or disable the following features by configuring their DIP switches:

Link Test

MissingLink™ Mode

Smart MissingLink Mode

OAM Capabilities

The link test is a fast and easy way for you to test the connections between the converter ports and the end nodes that are connected to the ports. If a network problem occurs, you can perform a link test to determine which port is experiencing a problem, and therefore focus your troubleshooting efforts on the cable and end node where the problem resides.

The LK LED for the twisted pair port should be green, indicating that it was able to establish a link with its end nodes. If the LK LED is off, the port could not establish a link. Refer to “Troubleshooting” on page 95 for suggestions on how to remedy the problem.

For more information on how the LK LED functions, refer to Appendix A in the Converteon™ Media Converter Line Cards Reference Guide.

Performing a link test does not interfere with a converter’s ability to pass network traffic.

The MissingLink™ feature enables the ports on the media converter to pass the link status of their connections to each other. When the media converter detects a problem on one of the ports, such as the loss of connection to an end node, the media converter shuts down the connection to the other port, thus notifying the end node that the connection has been lost.

For example, if the twisted pair cable to the 10/100Base-TXport on the media converter fails, the line card drops the link on the100Base-FXfiber optic port. In this way, the media converter notifies the end node connected to the fiber optic port that the connection on the twisted pair

AT-CV5000Media Converter Chassis Installation Guide

port has been lost. If the failure occurs on the fiber optic cabling, the line card drops the link to the twisted pair port.

Some devices can be configured to take a specific action in the event of the loss of connection on a port, to seek a redundant path to a disconnected end node, or to send out a trap to a network management station, and so alert the network administrator of the problem.

The Smart MissingLink feature performs exactly the same function as MissingLink™ with one additional feature. When a link is lost on a port, the LK LED of the port that still has a valid connection to its end node starts to blink. This allows you to quickly determine which port still has a valid connection (LK LED blinking) and which port has lost its connection (LK LED is off).

For example, if the network twisted pair cable to the 10/100Base-TXport on the media converter fails, the LK LED on the100Base-FXfiber optic port blinks, indicating a failed connection on the twisted pair port. If the failure starts with the fiber optic cabling, the LK LED on the twisted pair port blinks.

This allows you to quickly see which port has failed and troubleshoot your network accordingly.

The Operation, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) is a group of functions that provides tools and utilities used to manage a network. The OAM feature is 802.3ah-compliantand is used to provide network indication, system configuration, performance monitoring, security management, diagnostic functions and configuration. OAM is described in detail in theAT-S70 Management Software User’s Guide.

For a detailed description of each Converteon™ line card, refer to the documentation shipped with the line card or the Converteon™ Media Converter Line Cards Reference Guide.

Blank Slot Covers

The AT-CV5PNLxSeries blank slot covers are designed to maintain optimal,trouble-freeenvironmental conditions for the modules used in the Converteon™AT-CV5000chassis. Every unoccupied slot on the chassis must be covered with a blank slot cover to prevent dust from entering the chassis and to maintain proper airflow, cooling, and ventilation throughout the chassis.

There are three AT-CV5PNLxSeries blank slot covers:

AT-CV5PNL1– For line cards andAT-CV5M01Management Card

AT-CV5PNL2– For power supply modules

AT-CV5PNL3– For the rear expansion slot
