INTRODUCTION

1.2 THE 7F06-02MODULE

The 7F06-02Module provides two Fiber Optic ports via front panel FPIM modules.

1.2.1 Cable Type and FPIMs

The 7F06-02module has two front panel connectors that interface to the 7X00 Smart Switch Module through the chassis backplane. The front panel connections are standard Cabletron FPIMs. There are two FPIMs for each channel. These FPIMs allow the use of single mode or multimode fiber cable with MIC or SC type connectors and twisted pair cable, either shielded or unshielded.

1.2.27C03 MMAC SmartSwitch, the 7C04 Workgroup SmartSwitch and the 7C04-RWorkgroup SmartSwitch

The 7F06-02Module is designed to be installed in the 7C03 MMAC SmartSwitch, the 7C04 Workgroup SmartSwitch or the7C04-RWorkgroup SmartSwitch.

The modular design of the 7C03 MMAC SmartSwitch allows other modules that support Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, ATM, FDDI, or

INTRODUCTION

Token Ring to be used with the 7F06-02Module. These modules provide the capability to share data without the use of external bridges or routers.

The 7C03 MMAC SmartSwitch is a unique module that can be installed in an MMAC Series chassis. The 7C04 Workgroup SmartSwitch and the 7C04-RWorkgroup SmartSwitch are standalone chassis that provide the same functions.

1.3 FEATURES

The 7F06-02Module provides two FDDI ports via front panel FPIMs. The7F06-02Module includes the following features:

1.3.1 FPIMs

The front panel connections are standard Cabletron FPIMs. These FPIMs allow the use of single mode or multimode fiber cable with MIC or SC type connectors.

1.3.2 LANVIEW LEDs

The 7F06-02uses LANVIEW, Cabletron Systemsbuilt-invisual diagnostic and status monitoring system. With LANVIEW LEDs, you can quickly identify, at a glance, the status of the device connected to a port on the7F06-02Module.

1.3.3 Connectivity

The 7F06-02Module has one backplane connection and two sets of A/B front panel FPIM connections. The backplane connection provides power to the7F06-02Module and a channel for communication with the 7X00 SmartSwitch Control Module. The two front panel FPIMs provide FDDI connections, allowing the use of single mode or multimode fiber cable with MIC or SC type connectors.
