Description

 

 

 

RESET switch

 

A recessed switch allows the user to reset the system.

 

 

 

Console port

 

A single console port allows the user access to the command-lineinterface.

 

 

The console port has an RJ-45connector.

 

 

 

USB ports

 

The switch has two USB ports:

 

 

Port 1 is a device port with a Type B USB connector. A standard

 

 

USB 1.1 host, such as a PC, can plug into this port.

 

 

Port 2 is a host port with a Type A USB connector. A standard USB 1.1

 

 

device, such as Flash memory, can plug into this port.

 

 

 

PCMCIA slot

 

Type 2 CompactFlash devices can be installed in this slot.

 

 

 

Downlink ports

 

The chassis front panel has 24 downlink ports. An SFP transceiver must be

 

 

installed for the port to operate. Cable type and recommended cabling

 

 

distance are determined by the type of SFP transceiver installed in the

 

 

downlink port.

 

 

 

Uplink ports

 

The chassis front panel has 8 uplink ports. An SFP transceiver must be

 

 

installed for the port to operate. Cable type and recommended cabling

 

 

distance are determined by the type of SFP transceiver installed in the uplink

 

 

port.

Note To maintain proper air circulation through the switch chassis, we

 

 

 

recommend that you maintain a minimum 6-inch(15 cm) separation

 

 

 

between a wall and the chassis air intake or a wall and the chassis air

 

 

 

exhaust. You should also allow a minimum separation of 12 inches

 

 

 

(30.5 cm) between the hot air exhaust on one chassis and the air

 

 

 

intake on another chassis. Failure to maintain adequate air space can

 

 

 

cause the chassis to overheat and the system to fail.
