Introduction

The 9F106-01module, shown inFigure 1-1, is a two port FDDI router. One front panel network connection can be made to this module and routed to any otherMMAC-Plusmodule via the FNB bus.

Features

Processor

The 9F106-01is equipped with an advanced IDT R4600 Fourth Generation 64 bit RISC microprocessor. This microprocessor provides a platform for all management functions within a scalableRISC-basedarchitecture.

System Management

The 9F106-01provides an interface to the System Management Bus(SMB-1)for intermodule management.

Connectivity

The 9F106-01provides one dual attached FDDI interface using two standard

Cabletron FPIMs.

Routing

The 9F106-01provides Routing between the front panel interface and/or to any other module in the chassis via FNB-1or FNB-2of the FNB bus. IEEE 802.1d Spanning Tree Protocol is supported in all bridging functions.

Introduction

Management Information Base (MIB) Support

The 9F106-01module provides MIB support including the following:

IETF FDDI MIB

IETF MIB II

NOTE

For a complete list of supported MIBs, refer to the release notes provided in the

 

module package.

LANVIEW LEDs

The 9F106-01uses LANVIEW: the Cabletron Systemsbuilt-invisual diagnostic and status monitoring system. With LANVIEW LEDs, you can quickly identify the device, port, and physical layer status at a glance.

Hot Swapping

The 9F106-01can be installed or removed from the chassis while theMMAC-Plusis powered up without affecting the operation of the remaining modules in the chassis.

Chapter 2

Installing the MMAC-PlusModule

The MMAC-Plusmodule may be installed into any of the 14 slots that are available. To install, follow the steps below:

1.Remove the blank panel, covering the slot that the module is being mounted in. All other slots must be covered, if modules are not being installed, to ensure proper airflow and cooling.

2.Carefully remove the module from the shipping box. (Save the box and packing materials in the event the module must be reshipped.)

3.Attach one end of the ESD wrist strap packaged with the MMAC-Pluschassis to your wrist. Plug the other end into the ESD Wrist Strap Grounding receptacle in the lower right corner of theMMAC-PlusChassis shown in Figure 1.

4.Remove the module from the plastic bag. Observe all precautions to prevent damage from Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).

5.Carefully examine the module, checking for damage. If any damage exists, DO NOT install the module. Contact Cabletron Systems Technical Support immediately.

6.Before installing the MMAC-Pluscards into the chassis, ensure that the bottom and top plastic tabs are unlocked. Slide the card into an available slot and ensure that the circuit card is between the card guides, as shown in Figure 1. Check both the upper and lower tracks. Take care that the module slides in straight and engages the backplane connectors properly. Lock down the top and bottom plastic tabsat the same time, applying even pressure.
