Introduction to SPMA

for the FRX4000, FRX6000, and SmartSwitch 1800

Using this Guide; manual conventions; contacting the Cabletron Systems’ Global Call Center; firmware versions supported by SPMA

Your SPMA for the FRX4000, FRX6000, and the SmartSwitch 1800 management module provides management support for the FRX4000 stand-aloneframe relay access device; its larger cousin, the FRX6000 scalable chassis; and the innovative SmartSwitch 1800 frame relay access device. These devices arehigh-performanceFrame Relay products that combine the capabilities of a frame relay access device (FRAD) and a router in one box.

The FRX4000 is designed for smaller branch offices that require high performance to integrate with larger networks over frame relay at access rates up to T1 and beyond. It supports up to eight serial interfaces (RS232, V.35, or RS422) and one LAN (Ethernet or Token Ring) interface, and is available in a variety of models depending on the combination of LAN interface and serial protocols you need.

The FRX6000 is ideal for data centers and concentration sites because of its scalable rackmount chassis. Its eight slots can support up to two LAN interface cards and 48 serial interfaces, or as many as 56 (with a single LAN interface) or 64 (with no LAN interface) serial interfaces. Up to eight ports can operate at T1 speeds, and as many as six can operate at E1 speeds. Expansion cards are available for Ethernet or Token Ring LAN support, and for RS232, V.35, or RS422 serial interfaces; a wide variety of protocol support is also provided.

The SmartSwitch 1800 is a high performance, multiprotocol frame relay access device that provides multimedia support by adding voice technology to traditional data applications. Designed for branch offices, it supports four serial interfaces for WAN and local connectivity (RS232, V.35, or RS422), two analog RJ45 voice channels, and one LAN (Ethernet or Token Ring) interface.
