SAFETY INFORMATION

CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS

THE 9H539-24MODULE USES CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS.

READ THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INFORMATION BEFORE

INSTALLING OR OPERATING THESE MODULES.

The Class 1 laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This control loop eliminates the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1 Laser transceivers comply with the following safety standards:

21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).

IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).

CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).

When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1 accessible emission limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered hazardous.

SAFETY INFORMATION

CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS

LASER RADIATION AND CONNECTORS

When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum amount of radiant power exiting the fiber (under normal conditions) is -12.6dBm or 55 x10-6 watts.

Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly from the optical port. The maximum radiance

from the optical port (under worst case conditions) is 0.8 W cm-2 or 8 x 103 W m2 sr-1.

Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to view laser output increases eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, power must be removed from the network adapter.

Introduction

The 9E531-24shown inFigure 1-1, is a10BASE-FLEthernet switching module for Cabletron Systems SmartSwitch 9000 chassis, providing 24MT-RJMMF ports.

The 9E531-24can be used to connect individual 10BASE-FLuser devices and servers.

Features

Connectivity

The 9H532-24connects to Ethernet networks or workstations through the 24 MTRJ ports on the front panel. These ports are IEEE 802.1D and 802.310BASE-FLcompliant. The ports support Multimode fiber cables with attenuation of less than or equal to 3.75 dB/Km, when measured at a wavelength of 850 nm.

Introduction

Duplex Mode

Through Local Management, each port on the 9E531-24can be configured to support either full or half duplex mode of operation.

Runtime IP Address Discovery

This feature enables the modules to automatically accept an IP address from a Boot Strap Protocol (BootP) server on the network into NVRAM without requiring a user to enter an IP address through Local Management.

When the modules are connected to the network and powered up, Runtime IP Address Discovery (RAD) checks the modules for an IP address. If one has not yet been assigned (module and SmartSwitch 9000 chassis IP address set to 0.0.0.0), RAD checks to see if any of the module interfaces have a link. If so, RAD sends out Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) and BootP requests to obtain an IP address from a RARP or BootP server on the network.

The RAD requests start at an interval of one per second. The interval then doubles after every transmission until an interval of 300 seconds is reached. At this point, the interval remains at 300 seconds. The RAD requests continue until an IP address is received from a RARP or BootP server, or an IP address is entered using Local Management.

SmartTrunk

SmartTrunk, also referred to as SmartTrunking, is Cabletron Systems’ terminology for load balancing or load sharing. SmartTrunk technology provides an easy-to-implementmechanism to group, or aggregate, multiple links of any technology together to scale the backbone bandwidth beyond the limitations of a single link. All links areuser-configurableso administrators can scale the backbone bandwidth by adding SmartTrunk links. The benefits of SmartTrunking include the following:

All purchased bandwidth is used.

Distributed, resilient links increase reliability and performance.

Multiple technologies are supported within a single trunk for maximum flexibility.

NOTE

For information on SmartTrunk configuration, refer to the SmartTrunk User’s Guide.

1-3

Introduction

Management

Management of the 9E531-24module and SmartSwitch chassis and any optional equipment is accomplished using the Local Management application or remote SNMP management stations. Local Management is accessible through the RS232 COM port on the Environmental Module using a local VT100 terminal, or a remote VT100 terminal via a modem connection, andin-bandvia a Telnet connection.In-bandremote management is possible through Webview or any SNMP compliant Network Management Software.

Local Management provides the ability to manage the 9E531-24.Local Management information fornon-EthernetHSIMs or VHSIMs is included in their respective user’s guide. For details on how to get manuals, refer to the Related Manuals section in the Introduction.

WebView

The 9E531-24modules can be managed by Cabletron WebView, abrowser-basedutility. There is no software to install as this management capability is built into each module.

Remote Monitoring (RMON)

The 9E531-24supports all nine Ethernet RMON groups. The Statistics, Alarms, Events and History groups are enabled on all ports by default.

Cabletron Systems RMON Actions is a vendor-specificextension of RMON and provides the ability to set an “Action” on any SNMP MIB variable. The Action can be triggered by setting an RMON Event and/or Alarm. An example of an Action would be to turn off aMIB-2interface if a broadcast threshold is crossed.

Broadcast Suppression

Broadcast Suppression enables a user to set a desired limit of receive broadcast frames per port/per second to be forwarded out the other ports on the module up to the set limit. Any broadcast frames above this specified limit are dropped. In the event that broadcast frames are being suppressed, multicast and unicast frames continue to be switched.

Port Redirect Function

The Port Redirect function, also referred to as “Port Mirroring,” is a troubleshooting tool used to map traffic from a single source port to a destination port within the chassis. This feature allows all packets, including those with errors, to be copied and sent to an analyzer or RMON probe. The analyzer or RMON probe will see the data as if it is directly connected to the LAN segment of the source port.

Flow Control

Flow Control is a method of managing the flow of frames between two devices. It ensures that a transmitting device does not overwhelm a receiving device with data. This enables the receiving device to communicate with the transmitting

1-4

Introduction

device, and to have it pause its transmission while the receiving device processes the frames already received. Flow control can be enabled or disabled on a port-by-port basis. Both devices must support the IEEE 802.3x standard for flow control to work.

The 9E531-24supports the following two types of flow control:

frame based 802.3x

back pressure

Frame based 802.3x flow control is supported on all Ethernet ports operating in the full duplex mode.

Back pressure flow control is supported on all Ethernet ports operating in the standard mode of operation.

802.1p Port Priority

The IEEE 802.1p standard is used to assign a default priority to the frames received without priority information in their tag header, and to map prioritized frames to the appropriate transmit queues.

The default priority-to-queuemappings are shown inTable 1-1. This configuration can be changed by the administrator.

Switching Options

The 9E531-24provides IEEEStandard-based802.1 switching or SecureFast Switching Virtual Network Services. In the 802.1 mode (the default mode of operation), the switch functions as an 802.1D switch. When VLANs are configured, it operates as an 802.1Q switch.

1-5

Introduction

Standards Compatibility

The 9E531-24is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3, 802.3x, 802.1Q, and 802.1p standards. The9E531-24provides IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Algorithm (STA) support to enhance the overall reliability of the network and protect against

“loop” conditions. The 9E531-24supports a wide variety of industry standard MIBs including RFC 1573 (MIB II), RFC 1271 (RMON), RFC 1493 (Bridge MIB), RFC 1354 (FIB MIB), and RFC 1190 (Path MTU Discovery). A full suite of Cabletron Systems Enterprise MIBs provide a wide array of statistical information to enhance troubleshooting.

For information about how to extract and compile individual MIBs, contact Cabletron Systems.

GARP Switch Operation

Some or all ports on the switch may be activated to operate under the Generic Attribute Registration Protocol (GARP) applications, GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP) and/or GARP Multicast Registration Protocol (GMRP).

GARP is a protocol, or set of rules, that outlines a mechanism for propagating the port state and/or user information throughout a bridged LAN to keep track of users and VLANs on the network fabric. MAC bridges and end users alike can take part in the registration and de-registrationof GARP attributes such as VLAN and multicast group membership.

LANVIEW Diagnostic LEDs
