Section I: FBRM/BFFG Product Description

Transition Networks

General description

Design and The FBRM and BFFG Devices are designed as standalone models, and also as slide- configuration in Devices for the Point System chassis. These Devices can be managed through

SNMP via the Focal Point software (free), Web-based management, Local SNMP, and USB interfaces.

The CFBRM and CBFFG (chassis Devices), and SFBRM and SBFFG (standalone Devices) are designed to manage Devices remotely through the copper and fiber ports.

The FBRM or BFFG Devices installed on a network should be configured one as the local peer and the other as a remote peer for management.

Remote management is accomplished using OAM (Operation Administration and Maintenance) per the IEEE 802.3ah, 2004 standard. Standalone Devices can also be managed via IP (Web-based) or Telnet.

What is OAM? These Devices implement the IEEE 802.3ah standard or (OAM) in the Ethernet first mile. OAM is a group of network management functions that provide network fault indications, performance information, data, and diagnosis. These Devices implement remote management via OAM as per the IEEE 802.3ah standard.

In-band

These Devices implement complete Real-Time Multi-Threaded Operating System

management

(RTOS) with a TCP/IP stack for in-band management.

USB interface The USB (Universal Serial Bus) type “B” serial port is used mainly to configure Device-basic setup before installation and operation on a network.

Point System Implements the current Point System management I2C interface. This allows mgmt interface managing the Device via SNMP, using the existing Point System method.

Transition Networks

Management methods

Management

The FBRM and BFFG Devices support the following management methods:

 

USB CLI (Command Line Interface)

 

Telnet

 

MMU (Management Module Unit) chassis web-based

 

IP-based (web-based directly to the Device)

USB

 

USB management requires a direct connection to the Device via a computer. This

 

method is used to set up initially or to troubleshoot Devices in the field.

Telnet

 

Telnet management requires that the Device be connected to a network. Then from

 

the CPU command line type Telnet and the Device IP address as shown as follows:

 

Telnet nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn (represents Device IP address).

 

 

MMU

The MMU (Management Module Unit) is the heart of the Point System chassis’

 

management capability. It has the ability to monitor and manage all its installed

 

Devices. The MMU communicates through the CLI presented at the serial port, or

 

through SNMP, Telnet CLI, and Web interface available via the Ethernet port.

IP-based (web-

The switch provides complete management through IP via an SNMP interface, web-

based)

browser, or Telnet. The Device provides an embedded web server for web-based

 

management. It also offers advanced management features and enables Device

 

management from anywhere on the network through a standard browser, such as

 

Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape.

Connectivity The different versions of the FBRM and BFFG can be connected and set up to manage a remote peer completely. In a mixed setup with other FBRM or BFFG Devices, consider the connectivity scenarios in Figure 9, and the explanation that follows:

Figure 9: Connectivity Scenarios

Connection In Figure 9, P2 of the active local peer in both scenarios is “OAM enabled” and scenario “Active” by default. To manage the remote passive peer via OAM, configure P1 of explanation the active local peer as follows:

Enable OAM

Select Active mode

If the connection to the passive remote peer is made thru P2 of the active local peer, OAM occurs without human intervention.

Note: Automatic firmware upgrades will not occur with different types of FBRM or BFFG Device configurations.

Section I: FBRM/BFFG Product Description

Redundant SFBRM1040-140 models

Redundant These SFBRM SFP Devices support fiber redundancy. They have two (2) fiber SFP models ports and one (1) copper port. When you tag the fiber ports as primary and secondary

with redundancy enabled, any fault on the primary port results in the secondary port becoming operational. There is an option for reverting back to the primary once it has been restored, or you can continue using the secondary port—these are user selectable features. See Figure 10.

Figure 10: SFBRMs in Redundant Mode

Explanation With Port 3 as the secondary port in Redundancy Mode and Port 2, the primary goes down, the following will happen:

Stage

Description

A.

All Physical layer and OAM configurations of Port 2 will be applied to

 

Port 3.

B.

Port 2 is disabled, and Port 3 initialized to take over.

C.

An SNMP trap is sent indicating that the ports have switched.

D.

OAM reinitializes (resets all OAM counters and event logs).

E.

All the dynamic MAC entries in the ATU are flushed and the active port

 

has to relearn the entries.

Note: If the configuration option “revert” is set, when the primary port link is restored the session will revert back to the primary port. If the “revert’ option is NOT SET and the primary link is restored, the secondary port remains in operation until the user intervenes.

Introduction

 

 

 

This section describes how to install the CFBRM and CBFFG Devices into a Point

 

System chassis with a remotely managed SFBRM or CFBRM standalone Device.

 

Also, shows how to install two SFBRM Devices or two SBFFG standalone Devices

 

on a network, one as a local Device and the other as a remotely managed Device.

Caution

 

 

 

When handling chassis Devices observe electrostatic discharge precautions.

 

This requires proper grounding; i.e., wear a wrist strap. Failure to observe this

 

caution could result in damage to the chassis Device.

Installing CFBRM/CBFFG Devices into point system chassis

IMPORTANT The CFBRM/CBFFG Device product family IS NOT compatible with the CPSMM-

 

200 and CPSMM-210 MGMT modules when used in a cascaded application. The

 

CFBRM/CBFFG can be installed in the “master” chassis with the CPSMM-200

 

MGMT module, but they can not be installed in a cascaded chassis using the

 

CPSMM-210 MGMT module.

 

Alternatively, the CFBRM/CBFFG can be used with the CPSMM120 MGMT

 

module, which does not support chassis cascading.

Caution

 

Wear a grounding strap and observe electrostatic discharge precautions when

 

installing the CFBRM/CBFFG Device into the Point System chassis. Failure

 

to observe this caution could result in damage to the Device.
