INTRODUCTION

This chapter describes the features of the Switch and some background information about Ethernet/Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet switching technology.

Fast Ethernet Technology

The growing importance of LANs and the increasing complexity of desktop computing applications are fueling the need for high performance networks. A number of high-speedLAN technologies have been proposed to provide greater bandwidth and improve client/server response times. Among them,100BASE-T(Fast Ethernet) provides anon-disruptive,smooth evolution from the current10BASE-Ttechnology. Thenon-disruptiveand smooth evolution nature, and the dominating potential market base, virtually guaranteecost-effectiveand high performance Fast Ethernet solutions.

100Mbps Fast Ethernet is a standard specified by the IEEE 802.3 LAN committee. It is an extension of the 10Mbps Ethernet standard with the ability to transmit and receive data at 100Mbps, while maintaining the CSMA/CD Ethernet protocol. Since the 100Mbps Fast Ethernet is compatible with all other 10Mbps Ethernet environments, it provides a straightforward upgrade and takes advantage of the existing investment in hardware, software, and personnel training.

Gigabit Ethernet Technology

Gigabit Ethernet is an extension of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet utilizing the same packet structure, format, and support for CSMA/CD protocol, full duplex, flow control, and management objects, but with a tenfold

increase in theoretical throughput over 100-MbpsFast Ethernet and a hundredfold increase over10-MbpsEthernet. Since it is compatible with all10-Mbpsand100-MbpsEthernet environments, Gigabit Ethernet provides a straightforward upgrade without wasting a company’s existing investment in hardware, software, and trained personnel.

The increased speed and extra bandwidth offered by Gigabit Ethernet are essential to coping with the network bottlenecks that frequently develop as computers and their busses get faster and more users use applications that generate more traffic. Upgrading key components, such as your backbone and servers to Gigabit Ethernet can greatly improve network response times as well as significantly speed up the traffic between your subnets.

Gigabit Ethernet supports video conferencing, complex imaging, and similar data-intensiveapplications. Likewise, since data transfers occur 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet, servers outfitted with Gigabit Ethernet NIC’s are able to perform 10 times the number of operations in the same amount of time.

The phenomenal bandwidth delivered by Gigabit Ethernet was the most cost-effectivemethod to take advantage of today’s rapidly improving switching and routing internetworking technologies. And with expected advances in silicon technology and digital signal processing that enabled Gigabit Ethernet to eventually operate over unshieldedtwisted-pair(UTP) cabling, outfitting your network with a powerful1000-Mbps-capablebackbone/server connection creates a flexible foundation for the next generation of network technology products.

Switching Technology

Another approach to pushing beyond the limits of Ethernet technology is the development of switching technology. A switch bridges Ethernet packets at the MAC address level of the Ethernet protocol transmitting among connected Ethernet or Fast Ethernet LAN segments.

Switching is a cost-effectiveway of increasing the total network capacity available to users on a local area network. A switch increases capacity and decreases network loading by dividing a local area network into differentsegments, which don’t compete with each other for network transmission capacity.

The switch acts as a high-speedselective bridge between the individual segments. The switch, without interfering with any other segments, automatically forwards traffic that needs to go from one segment to another. By doing this the total network capacity is multiplied, while still maintaining the same network cabling and adapter cards.

Switching LAN technology is a marked improvement over the previous generation of network bridges, which were characterized by higher latencies. Routers have also been used to segment local area networks, but the cost of a router, the setup and maintenance required make routers relatively impractical. Today switches are an ideal solution to most kinds of local area network congestion problems.

UNPACKING ANDINSTALLATION

This chapter provides unpacking and installation information for the Switch. To avoid causing any damage to the Switch, we recommend that you read this chapter carefully before starting installation.

Unpacking

Open the shipping carton of the Switch and carefully unpack the items inside. The carton should contain the following items:

The Smart Gigabit Ethernet Switch

One AC power cord, suitable for your area’s electrical power connections

Four rubber pads to be used for shock cushioning Screws and two mounting brackets

User’s Guide

Diskette for Manageable/Smart function user’s guide Console Cable: RS232 9pin (male) to 9pin (male)

If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for replacement.

Installation

The site where you place the Switch may greatly affect its performance. When installing, take the following into your consideration:

Install the Switch in a site free from strong electromagnetic field generators (such as motors), vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.

Leave at least 10cm of space at the front and rear of the Switch for ventilation.

Install the Switch on a sturdy, level surface that can support its weight, or in an EIA standard-sizeequipment rack.

For information on rack installation, see the next section Rack Mounting.

When installing the Switch on a level surface, attach the adhesive rubber pads to the bottom. The rubber pads cushion the Switch and protect its case from scratching.
