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

Auto-Negotiation

The twisted pair ports on the front panel of the 9H532-24and9H533-24modules have the ability toauto-negotiatethe type of connection required to provide a link to another device. DuringAuto-Negotiation,two devices automatically exchange information “telling” each other what their operating capabilities are. The AutoNegotiation feature targets the maximum capabilities that can be reached between the two devices. For example, the module adjusts to 100 Mbps when the device on the other end of the connection can also adjust between 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps. If the device on the other end of the connection can only operate at

10 Mbps, then the 9H532-24adjusts to 10 Mbps operation.

When Auto-Negotiationis supported at both ends of a link, the two devices dynamically adjust to full or half duplex operation based on the maximum capability that can be reached between the two devices. If the device connected to the9H532-24and9H533-24cannotauto-negotiate,the9H532-24and9H533-24interface operates according to the speed of the other device, in half duplex mode. For a full duplex only device, the port may be manually configured to full duplex.

Both the 9H531-24and the9H539-24support Full Duplex Switched Ethernet (FDSE) with 100 Mbps operation only. On the9H532-24and the9H533-24,each switched Fast Ethernet port can be configured to operate in FDSE mode, with 10 or 100 Mbps operation. FDSE allows each port to provide up to 200 Mbps of bandwidth.

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

1-3

Introduction

single link. All links are user-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.

Management

Management of the 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24modules 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 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24.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.

The 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24modules can be managed using Cabletron WebView, abrowser-basedutility. There is no software to install as this management capability is built into each module.

Remote Monitoring (RMON)

The 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24support 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.

Introduction

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 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 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24support 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 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24provide 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 until VLANs are configured, it operates as an 802.1Q switch.

Standards Compatibility

The 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24are fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3, 802.3x, 802.3u, 802.1Q, and 802.1p standards. The9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24provide IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Algorithm (STA) support to enhance the overall reliability of the network and protect against “loop” conditions. The9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24support 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

Installing the SmartSwitch 9000 Module

Using DIP Switch 6

The purpose of DIP switch 6 is to force a Flash download from a BootP server through the EM-EPIM.The first step in this process is to configure the BootP server. Configurations of BootP servers can differ from platform to platform and from one operating system to another. Read the user’s manual on BootP and TFTP serving for the correct files to edit and the correct files to execute for the server. After configuration of the BootP server the module can then have the switch state changed on dip switch 6 to initiate BootP and TFTP requests.

When the state of dip switch 6 is changed, the module begins requesting a BootP server in an attempt to receive a Flash image download. The modules boot PROM initiates a BootP sequence. During this sequence, the module requests an IP address and a filename from the BootP server. The module then requests a TFTP of the file and receives the download of the image. The module will not function until the Flash image is downloaded from the BootP and TFTP server.

If a BootP and TFTP are not intended at this time, this process may be stopped by resetting the module. Resetting is done by pushing the reset button on the module, power cycling the chassis, or removing the module from the chassis and re-inserting.(See the section titled The Reset Switch on page 2-6.) After resetting, the module again looks for a BootP server, but willtime-outafter about four minutes. After thetime-out,the module boots from Flash memory. The next time the power is cycled, the module will boot from Flash memory and not request the BootP server.

Installing the Module into the SmartSwitch 9000 Chassis

To install the SmartSwitch 9000 module, follow the steps below:

NOTE

The INB Terminator Modules must be installed on the rear of the fourteen slot chassis before powering up this module. The INB Terminator Modules are not required on the six slot chassis. Refer to the INB Terminator Modules Installation Guide for information and installation procedure.

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

2.Attach one end of the ESD wrist strap packaged with the SmartSwitch 9000 chassis to your wrist. Plug the other end into the ESD Wrist Strap Grounding receptacle in the lower right corner of the SmartSwitch 9000 chassis shown in Figure 2-2.

Cabling Requirements

10BASE-TNetwork

When connecting a 10BASE-Tsegment to the front panel ports of a9H532-24or a9H533-24module, ensure that the network meets the Ethernet network requirements of the IEEE 802.3 standard for10BASE-T.If a port is to operate at 100 Mbps, Category 5 cabling must be used. For 10 Mbps operation only, Category 3 cabling can be used.

100BASE-TXNetwork

The 9H532-24and the9H533-24support Category 5 UTP cabling with an impedance between 85 and 111 ohms for 10 and 100 Mbps operation. The device at the other end of the twisted pair segment must meet IEEE 802.3u100BASE-TXFast Ethernet network requirements for the devices to operate at 100 Mbps. Refer to the Cabletron SystemsCabling Guide for details.

100BASE-FXNetwork

The 9H531-24and9H539-24support100BASE-FX.When connecting a100BASE-FXsegment to any of the front panel ports, ensure that the network meets the optical performance requirements for100BASE-FXIEEE 802.3u standard.

The 9H531-24supports multimode fiber cables at the 1300 nm wavelength, at lengths of up to 2 km.

The 9H539-24supports single mode fiber at the 1300 nm wavelength. Class 1 lasers are used to support single mode 9/125 micon fiber cables up to 15 km in length.

Technical Overview

SmartSwitch Architecture

The SmartSwitch Architecture of the 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24modules, as shown inFigure 3-1,are configurable for one of two modes of operation: traditional IEEE 802.1 switching, or SecureFast switching. The modules support only one of these modes of operation at any one time.

When operating in traditional IEEE 802.1 switch mode, the 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24make filtering/forwarding decisions based on Destination Address (DA), with standard IEEE 802.1D learning. 802.1Q VLANs are also supported.

Spanning tree operation for the 9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24may be configured to adhere to IEEE 802.1D, DEC, or none. The default Spanning Tree Algorithm is 802.1D.

When operating in SecureFast switch mode, all filtering/forwarding decisions are made on a DA-SApair and its in and out port on aconnection-orientatedbasis. SecureFast switching mode providesvalue-addednetwork services including dynamic VLANs, Topology, Connectivity, IP Multicast, Control, Security, Application, Address Management, Dynamic Mapping, and Directory services. For example, Topology Services includes configurable options ranging from simple spanning tree implementations tofully-meshedactive topologies. Other services and features supported in SecureFast switching mode are described in detail in the Cabletron System’s White Paper,IP Host Communication in Bridged, Routed and SecureFast Networks.

System Management Buses

There are two management channels within the SmartSwitch 9000 system: the SMB-1and theSMB-10.These buses provideout-of-bandmanagement andinter-modulemanagement communication.

3-2

Technical Overview

SMB-1Bus

The SMB-1is a 1 Mbps management bus located within the SmartSwitch 9000. This bus is utilized by all diagnostic controllers in the system including connectivity modules, power supply modules and the environmental module. TheSMB-1transportsinter-chassisinformation between system components, such as power and environmental information, as well as diagnostic messages. Periodicloop-backtests are performed by all modules that share this bus to ensure the validity ofSMB-1.In the event a failure is detected onSMB-1,theSMB-10may be used as an alternate communication channel.

SMB-10Bus

The SMB-10is a 10 Mbps management bus located within the SmartSwitch 9000, which is also used forinter-chassiscommunication of modules as well as serving as anout-of-bandmanagement channel into the SmartSwitch 9000. TheSMB-10is externalized from the chassis via an optional Ethernet Port Interface Module (EPIM) located on the front of the Environmental Module. Through an EPIM connection, full SNMP management of the SmartSwitch 9000 is availableout-of-band from user data. Modules that share theSMB-10bus periodically send outloop-backpackets to ensure the validity ofSMB-10.In the event a fault is detected on theSMB-10,theSMB-1can be used as an alternate communication channel by the modules.

System Diagnostic Controller

This diagnostic controller is composed of a Z-80microprocessor and its supporting logic. The diagnostic controller is designed to control thepower-upsequencing of modules, monitor the9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24input and output power parameters, keep watch over the main host processor, as well as monitor the temperature and control the SMB LANVIEW diagnostic LED. Although the diagnostic controller and the main host processor can operate independent of each other if needed, they exchange information about each other’s status and overall module condition. The information gathered by the diagnostic controller is available to the network manager via local/remote management and the LCD located on the Environmental Module. The9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24have been designed so that in the event of a diagnostic controller fault, the9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24will continue to function.

3-3

Technical Overview

DC/DC Converter

The DC/DC converter converts the 48 VDC on the system power bus to the necessary operating voltages for its host network services module. The diagnostic controller monitors and controls the operation of the DC/DC converter.

INB Interface

Each module attaches to both INB A and INB B and has two INB ASICs. The INB ASICs use 64-byteEthernet frames for transmission onto the INBs at 66 MHz.

The 9X5XX modules are fully compatible with the the first generation 9X4XX modules. The first generation modules communicate only on INB B using a 56-bytecanonical frame format, at 40 MHz. If the newer module detects a first generation module on the backplane, it automatically changes from the fast 66 MHz Ethernet frames, to the first generation compatible 40 MHz canonical

frame on INB B only. INB A is used only by the 9X5XX modules and remains at the higher speed.

i960 Core

The i960 core provides modules host services, the SNMP protocol stacks, to support industry standard MIBs, as well as Cabletron enterprise extension MIBs for each media type. Management services, such as telnet, WebView and network address to MAC address mapping, are also provided by the i960 core.

LANVIEW LEDs

The front panel LANVIEW LEDs indicate the status of the module and may be used as an aid in troubleshooting. Figure 4-1 shows the LANVIEW LEDs of the9H532-24,9H533-24,9H531-24and9H539-24module.

The LED Mode Switch

The 9H532-24and9H533-24have an LED mode switch, located on the front panel, that allows the user to change the function of the switch port LEDs. Refer toFigure 4-1.When the switch is in the UP position, the LEDs indicate the receive (RX) and transmit (TX) status of the fixed ports. When the mode switch is in the DOWN position, the LEDs indicate at what speed the applicable port is currently operating (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) and if the applicable port is operating in standard (half) or full duplex mode.

Table 4-4 andTable 4-5 provide the definitions of the LED states that occur when the LED mode switch is in the UP position.Table 4-6 andTable 4-7 provide the definitions of the LED states that occur when the LED mode switch is in the DOWN position.
