Power Supplies

The AT-CV5000chassis is shipped with two rear slots designated for the power supplies. Two power supply options are available:

AT-PWR14AC module

AT-PWR15DC module

Caution

The AT-CV5000Media Converter chassis can contain two power supplies of the same type (AC or DC) or a combination of the two versions with the same power ratings. Make sure not to mix power supplies with different power ratings in the same chassis.

For information on the power supply module, refer to the documentation that is shipped with the module.

An AC powered chassis is shown in Figure 8 and aDC-poweredchassis is shown inFigure 9.

When two power supplies are installed, one provides full power to the chassis and the one of them works in standby mode. If one power supply fails, the remaining power supply provides all the power to the system, preventing a system failure.

Chapter 1: Overview

Fan Modules

The AT-CVFANmodule, as shown inFigure 10, is designed for use with theAT-CV5000chassis. You can install the same fan module in either fan slot labeled A or B, located at the rear of theAT-CV5000chassis. For proper operation, twoAT-CVFANmodules are preinstalled in theAT-CV5000chassis.

Caution

The AT-CVFANmodules arefield-replaceable;however, they are nothot-swappable.Therefore, make sure to power OFF the chassis before replacing the fan modules.

Note

The AT-CV5000chassis operates correctly even with one faulty fan module. However, it will not operate correctly if one fan is missing because this changes the air flow.

Management Connections

The AT-CV5000chassis provides two ports to connect to theAT-S70management software:

For local management, connect to the RS-232terminal port on theAT-CV5M01Management Card or to theRS-232console port on theAT-CM70Sline card only.

For more information, refer to “Starting a Local Management Session” on page 67.

Note

You cannot access the AT-S70management software through the

RS-232port on the LED interface card.

For remote management using Telnet, connect to the 10/100Base-TXEthernet port.

For more information, refer to “Starting a Remote Management Session” on page 70.

Note

When you install an AT-CM70Sline card in anAT-CV5000chassis, you can manage it either through itsRS-232port or through the terminal port on theAT-CV5M01Management Card.

Chapter 1: Overview

A Few Basics about Media Converters

MAC Address

Table

Duplex Mode

An Ethernet media converter can interconnect network devices over large distances by transferring Ethernet traffic between twisted pair ports and fiber optic cabling.

A Converteon™ media converter line card has a MAC address table that can store up to 2K to 32 K MAC addresses, depending on the line card model. Refer to the Converteon™ Media Converter Line Cards Reference Guide for the number of MAC addresses that each line card can store. The line card uses the table to store the MAC addresses of the network end nodes connected to the ports, along with the port number on which each address was learned.

A line card learns the MAC addresses of the end nodes by examining the source address of each packet received on a port. It adds the address and port on which the packet was received to the MAC table if the address had not already been entered in the table. The result is a table that contains all the MAC addresses of the devices that are connected to the line card’s ports, and the port number where each address was learned.

When the line card receives a packet, it also examines the destination address and, by referring to its MAC address table, determines the port on which the destination end node is connected. It then forwards the packet to the appropriate port and on to the end node.

If the line card receives a packet with a destination address that is on the same port on which the packet was received, it discards the packet without forwarding it on to any port. Because both the source end node and the destination end node for the packet are located on the same port on the line card, there is no reason for the line card to forward the packet.

Duplex mode refers to the manner in which an end node receives and transmits data. If an end node can receive or transmit data, but not both simultaneously, the end node is operating in half-duplexmode. If an end node can both receive and transmit data simultaneously, the end node is operating infull-duplexmode. An end node capable of operating in fullduplex can handle data much faster than an end node that can only operate inhalf-duplexmode.

The twisted pair ports on the Converteon™ line cards can operate in either halfor full-duplexmode. The twisted pair ports are IEEE 802.3ucompliant and willAuto-Negotiatethe duplex mode setting for you.

You can disable Auto-Negotiationon the line card ports so that you can set the duplex mode manually through the management software.

In order for a line card port to successfully Auto-Negotiateits duplex mode

Store-and-

Pass-through

AT-CV5000Media Converter Chassis Installation Guide

with an end node, the end node should also be using Auto-Negotiation.Otherwise, a duplex mode mismatch can occur. A line card port, usingAuto-Negotiation,defaults tohalf-duplexif it detects that the end node is not usingAuto-Negotiation.This results in a mismatch if the end node is operating at a fixed duplex mode offull-duplex.

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

The bridging media converter line cards, for example the AT-CM202,AT-CM2K0S,and CM212x/1 Series line cards, usestore-and-forwardas the method for receiving and transmitting frames. When an Ethernet frame is received on a line card port, the line card does not retransmit the frame out the destination port until it has received the entire frame and has stored the frame in a port buffer. It then examines the frame to determine if it is a valid frame. The line card discards invalid frames, such as fragments or runts. This ensures that only valid frames are transmitted out the line card ports and that damaged frames are not propagated on your network.

The non-bridgingmedia converter line cards, for example theAT-CV102andAT-CV1KSS,usepass-throughas the method for receiving and transmitting frames. The line cards can support any frame size. They only support one speed on the copper and fiber ports. These line cards do not support the filtering feature and do not learn any MAC addresses.
