Chapter 1
Overview
This manual describes the hardware features and installation procedures
for ATI’s set of independently manageable TurboStack™ (TS) hubs. The
TurboStack family also includes “Slave” modules that are not manageable
as standalone devices (the AT-TS12FS/SM, ST, SC; AT-TS24TS; and
AT-TS24TRS models). These devices have their own manual and are not
described here. For information on the software installation and network
management aspects of TurboStack hubs, see the separate TurboStack™
AT-S10 Firmware Module For TurboStack Hubs Operations Manual
shipped with each manageable hub.
TurboStack Hubs
TurboStack multiple-port hubs offer maximum flexibility and redundancy
for department needs. They are IEEE 802.3 compliant/Ethernet
compatible and support Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
with both the second version of the Management Information Base
(MIB-II) and hub MIB (also known as Hub MIB).
Note
This manual refers to two or more chassis-mounted hubs, at least one of
which is manageable, as a department concentrator. The term hub refers to
either a standalone hub (i.e., a single manageable hub) or a department
concentrator configuration.
Each hub is manageable by the Master as a single building block for
TurboStack chassis ((department concentrator) configurations with
(segmented backplanes. Allied Telesyn International (ATI) supplies a
rackmount department concentrator chassis that can hold up to six hubs
in combination with either the AT-TS90TR or the AT-TS95TR switch
module in the bottom slot of the chassis. Installation of a switch module is
optional and requires use of a segmented backplane instead of the
standard backplane used for non-segmented hubs.

Overview
The TurboStack department concentrator chassis can be configured to
connect hubs across a standard (or non-segmented) backplane. In this
configuration, a fully populated department concentrator comprising eight
hubs behaves as a single hub in the network topology. This enables you to
build and reconfigure networks easily, efficiently, and at minimum
expense.
Note
For a detailed explanation of ATI’s TurboStack chassis/backplane
offerings, refer to the TurboStack™ Chassis and Backplanes Installation
Manual. This manual describes the physical features and installation
procedures for the chassis models.

Overview
Hubs without
Management
In addition to the TurboStack hubs with management, ATI offers six
models without management (i.e., Slave modules). When used in
conjunction with the managed hubs listed in Table 1, the TurboStack
Slave hubs become SNMP manageable. Table 2 details the specific model
number, port count and media/connector type available for these Slave
hubs.

Wiring
Configuration
Rules
Depending on the medium you choose, there are certain wiring practices
you should follow to ensure the reliability of communication throughout
the network. TurboStack hubs comply with IEEE standards for 802.3
Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD)
Ethernet; you should refer to these standards when implementing your
network. Some important guidelines for ensuring integrity in network
wiring appear in later chapters and the appendices of this manual.
Chassis Configuration
Department
Concentrator
You can use a single manageable TurboStack hub in standalone mode or
as part of a department concentrator housed in a chassis. Various chassis
models are available for desktop or rackmount configurations. These
include 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 7-, and 8-module combinations for desktop or 19-inch
rackmount installations with standard or segmented backplanes.

TurboStack Hubs with Management
You can use any combination of TurboStack and AT-3600 Series hubs in
the same department concentrator. In this configuration, however, only
the management features of AT-S4 firmware apply to all the installed
department concentrator units. You must install only TurboStack hubs in
the same department concentrator to enable the full range of TurboStack
features running AT-S10 firmware,.
Note
Not all slots have to be populated and populated slots do not have to be
contiguous. The Master is the top-most module. Any Slave above the
Master will not be managed.
A variety of department concentrator chassis models is available for
TurboStack products. These include chassis with segmented backplanes.
These chassis address a range of needs for different sized networks and
uses. Call your ATI sales representative for details.
Attention
Chassis equipped with fans have variable voltage settings—either 120V or
240V. To avoid overheating, check the specific chassis model to determine
the correct voltage setting.
Figure 2 shows a sample TurboStack department concentrator using the
7-slot chassis model segmented backplane. You can configure up to six
TurboStack hubs in these rackmount models.

(The AUI port is not available because of its backplane location).
Note
Depending on the model used, the AUI network port on some slave modules
cannot be used in a seven-slot department concentrator because they
reside on the back panel of the repeater and are blocked by the backplane.
You can mount all or any combination of TurboStack hubs in the same
department concentrator chassis. Once installed, the AT-S10 network
management software views the concentrator as a single logical device.
Note
If you have configured your chassis with both AT-3600 Series modules and
TurboStack modules, you will need to download all units with AT-S4
firmware. All modules in the department concentrator will then function as
AT-3600 hubs and the TurboStack security features will be disabled.
Module
Functions
In the department concentrator configuration, the modules perform
different functions:
❑
❑
The top module becomes the Master. It downloads software to and
serves as the reporting unit for other units in the concentrator. It
also controls the management functions.
The module in the slot directly below the Master becomes the
Backup. It assumes management functions if the Master is
removed.
Note
Both the Master and the Backup modules must have management
capability.
❑
❑
All hub modules between the Master or Backup and the switch in
the bottom chassis slot function as Slaves. They report
management information to the Master but do not perform any
control functions.
The bottom slot of the 7-slot chassis may be occupied by either the
AT-TS90TR switch or the AT-TS95TR switch.
Note
The bottom slot of the 7-slot chassis may be left empty. If there is no switch
in the bottom slot, however, there will be no communication between the
installed units.

In a department concentrator configuration with segmented backplane,
the Master unit provides management for each lower-level module (except
the switch in Slot 7) through the management bus. The flow of data
between (to/from) each port on an installed hub module and the network
backbone is governed by the switch module in the bottom chassis slot. (As
shown in Figure 4, the backplane receptacle for the switch module is offset
from the other backplane receptacles.)

TurboStack Hubs with Management
Network Management
Network
Management
Planning
Before installing and connecting manageable TurboStack hubs at various
site locations (such as in closets in a single building or in closets on
different floors or in different buildings), you need to decide on the number
of hubs in your network and where each hub is to be located. This
advanced planning will facilitate the assignment of hub names, MAC and/
or IP addresses. It will also maximize the efficiency of network
management once your hubs are fully installed and operational.
If you have a limited number of workgroup terminals and/or devices
co-located on the same floor, for example, you may decide to manage each
hub locally in a standalone configuration. In this scenario, a non-TCP
network may be appropriate.
If you have many geographically dispersed subnetworks, each connected
to its own department concentrator, management of these multiple hubs
remotely in a central-site configuration may require TCP/IP network
management.
Any manageable TurboStack hub can be configured for local or central-site
management. The Omega agent allows local hub management through
the front console serial port connected directly to a terminal or PC.
Agent Software
ATI provides every manageable TurboStack hub with a pre-installed
software program called Omega. Omega enables network management
either locally through an RS232 terminal port or remotely through a
Telnet session. The Omega agent also supports industry-standard SNMP
Network Management Stations.
Should the Master (or top unit in the chassis) be removed or fail, the
Backup (or second from the top unit) takes over the Master functions
automatically. You can hot swap any module without interrupting hub
management functions.
Note
Both the Master and the Backup modules must have management
capability in order to ensure continuous management functionality.
The TurboStack agent software is easy to upgrade through the firmware
cassette port. When you insert an optional AT-S10 firmware cassette into
this port, at power-up the new firmware providing enhanced security
features is copied to the hub’s onboard non-volatile flash memory.
Refer to the TurboStack™ AT-S10 Firmware Module For TurboStack Hubs
Operations Manual for additional information.

Overview
MAC Address
Every “intelligent” ATI hub (i.e., hubs with management capability) is
provided with a factory-installed unique 6-byte (12-digit) Media Access
Control (MAC) address. This address includes a 3-byte (6-digit) company
identification number.
The MAC address is a unique number assigned to each node using the
network. These MAC addreses are used to resolve conflict when multiple
computers are trying to access the network simultaneously. This IEEE
physical storage location address resides in the MAC PROM and is
accessed through an ASCII terminal.
In order to make this address easily accessible and externally visible, a
MAC address label is etched on the vertical edge of the right-hand plastic
flap, as shown in Figure 5.

Hardware Installation
Site Preparation
Attention
Improper installation of the chassis can expose personnel to high voltages,
risking the possibility of injury or death. Before installing TurboStack
hubs, read the See Electrical Safety and Installation Requirements on
page i.
Location
Ventilation
A TurboStack hub can operate as a standalone product, or installed in a
chassis or in a 19-inch rack.
The site must have adequate ventilation to provide an operating
environment consistent with TurboStack specifications. Hubs have
internal fans to aid in cooling. Chassis models are also equipped with fans.
For the fans to function correctly, you must not block the ventilation
openings located on the sides of the chassis.
Attention
Maximum ambient temperature is 40o C with a department concentrator
chassis.
Power
Power connections for each unit should be able to provide 50 watts at 120
VAC for U.S.A. versions or 240VAC for international versions. It is
advisable to use dedicated power circuits or power conditioners to supply
power to the network devices. This aids in isolating the network
equipment from electrical power “noise.”

Installing Hubs
This section contains two separate procedures for installing manageable
TurboStack hubs:
❑
❑
Standalone installation
Installation in a chassis
Installing a standalone hub
The following procedure details how to install a TurboStack hub in a
standalone configuration:
1. Plug one end of the power cord into the repeater’s power receptacle and
the other end into a power outlet.
2. Check to see that the Power and Master indicators illuminate. If only
the Power indicator illuminates, the hub will have no management.
You will also hear a soft, humming sound caused by the internal fans
in the unit.
3. Plug your data cables into the hub and the network device. The Link
indicator for each connected port will illuminate (except on the
AT-TS08).
4. If one or more of the ports are transferring data, the Receive indicator
will illuminate.
5. The hub is now ready to be managed.
Installing a hub module in a chassis
The following procedure details how to install a TurboStack hub in a
chassis. This procedure is based on the assumption that another module in
the chassis is already functioning as the Master unit. The Master unit
must be installed in the uppermost slot. In powering up multiple hubs
installed in a chassis, always start with the Master unit.
Attention
When installing multiple ATI hubs in a chassis with power, setting the
chassis voltage switch too high (at 240V when 120V is required) will cause
overheating of the fans. Setting the voltage too low (at 120V when 240V is
required) will reduce the effectiveness of the fans and thus cause
overheating of the installed hub modules. Check the specific chassis model
to determine the correct voltage setting.
Attention
You should always quit the Omega management program at the end of
each session. Otherwise, you might encounter such problems as not being
able to exchange management hubs in a chassis.
Note
If you need to reinstall or update the network management software in a
hub module, refer to the TurboStack™ AT-S10 Firmware Module for
TurboStack Hubs Operations Manual.

Hardware Installation
Note
When inserting or removing repeater modules (using the hot swapping
method), you must be sure that the power cord is plugged in. To enable hot
swapping, you must disconnect the module from the backplane before you
unplug the power cord.
4. Flip open (toward you) the two plastic doors on either side of the
repeater front panel. (See Figure 9 below.)
5. Align the guide rails on either side of the module with the grooves in
the chassis slot. Then, slide the module into the chassis without seating
it in the backplane connector.
Note
If you use a chassis with a segmented backplane, hubs may be installed
only in slots 1 through 6, with slot 7 reserved for a switch module. If you
use a chassis with a standard backplane, hubs may be installed in any of
the chassis slots.
6. Plug in the module’s power cord.
7. Check to see that the Power indicator illuminates.
8. Seat the module carefully and firmly in the backplane.
9. Check to see that the Master indicator turns off. This indicates that the
module is not functioning as a Master unit in the chassis (if that is your
intended functionality for this module).
Attention
Upon initial power-up, the LEDs (including the red fault lights) on all units
connected through a chassis backplane will activate. This is a normal
cycling function and is not any indication of a problem.

12. If one or more of the ports on the module are transferring data, the
Receive indicator will illuminate.
13. The module is now active in the chassis as a component of a network
concentrator.
For confirmation, you can obtain hub and port status information via
network management. To enable management from a PC monitor, the PC
must be connected to the Master through the Master’s RS232 port. For
further details, refer to theTurboStack™ AT-S10 Firmware Module For
TurboStack Hubs Operations Manual.

Hardware Installation
Note
If you have configured your chassis with both AT-3600 Series modules and
TurboStack modules, you will need to refer to the AT-3600 Series Hub/
Repeaters and AT-S4 Firmware Module Network Operations Manual. The
AT-S10 software will not run on a chassis configuration that includes both
AT-3600 and TurboStack modules. See your ATI sales representative for
further details.
Attention
If a fault light illuminates and/or the port activity (link) LEDs on the
Master module illuminate when you first power up a hub, there may be a
problem with the unit. The recommended sequence of corrective steps is as
follows: 1) turn off the power and power up a second time; 2) insert a
firmware cassette in the back-panel port of the unit; 3) initiate a Return
Material Authorization (RMA) to ATI.
For a detailed explanation of ATI’s TurboStack chassis offerings, refer to
the TurboStack™ Chassis and Backplane Installation Manual, available
through your local ATI sales representative.
TurboStack Port Configurations
Network Ports
TurboStack hub models feature a variety of port counts and support a
variety of media, including:
❑
❑
❑
❑
RS232 Terminal Port
Fiber optic (10BASE-FL), using SM, SC or ST connectors
Thinnet (10BASE2), using BNC connectors
UTP/STP (10BASE-T), using Telco RJ21 or RJ45 connectors
Thick Ethernet (10BASE5), using the AUI connector
Every TurboStack hub with management capability includes an RS232
Terminal Port on the faceplate. (See Figure 10.)

Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
TurboStack Hubs with Management
The principal use for the RS232 port is connection of a local network
management terminal to access Omega. For more information, refer to the
TurboStack™ AT-S10 Firmware Module for TurboStack Hubs Operations
Manual.
AUI Appliqué Port
Each manageable TurboStack hub has a convertible AUI port located on
the front panel. You may use this port to connect the hub to the network.
In a department concentrator configuration, you might typically use one
module’s AUI port for the network connection and the other modules’ AUI
ports for station connections.
Figure 10 (above) shows this port configured as an AUI appliqué for
10BASE5. This port is convertible on all TurboStack hubs that have
management capability. You may configure it by replacing the networkinterface appliqué, as described below and in the TurboStack™ AT-TSAx
Appliqués Installation Manual shipped with all ATI appliqué kits.
Note
The AUI port on TurboStack hubs without management capability (i.e.,
“Slave” models) are permanently installed. They may not be converted. The
fixed AUI port resides on the front panel of each AT-TS12FS/SM, SC, or ST
slave module and on the back panel of each AT-TS24TRS and AT-TS24TS
slave module.)
Hub Connection Options
You can adapt individual hubs in a department concentrator to different
network media using either ATI external transceivers or internal
appliqués.
Appliqués
Optional appliqués are available for connection with fiber optic (SM, SC,
or ST), thinnet (BNC), or UTP (RJ45) cabling, in addition to the AUI
interface. Figure 11 shows the different TurboStack appliqués available.

Hub Status
Indicators
Hub status indicators show the overall condition of the module
Port activity indicators show the condition of each port connection.

back and the front panels of a TurboStack hub.
Port activity LEDs
Hub status LEDs

The specific illumination characteristics of each LED are as follows:
POWER—Green whenever power is applied.
MASTER— Amber indicates the currently active Master. (Illuminates on
the Master or on the Backup when the Backup has taken over the Master
function).
FAULT—(OFF under normal operational conditions):
❑
❑
Stays red for a very short time while power-on/reset diagnostics are
run; remains continually red if a malfunction occurs during the
diagnostics
Turns red (on a Master only) if the Master fails; if the Backup
detects a failure of the Master, the Backup takes over the Master
function
Note
If the Master fails, its software may not be able to turn OFF its own Master
LED; consequently, the Master LED may be illuminated on two modules in
the backplane. In this kind of failure, however, the original Master’s Fault
LED will also be illuminated to indicate the failure.

Troubleshooting the Installation
This section provides a checklist for resolving problems associated with
your hub and cabling. The first rule of troubleshooting is to isolate the
problem. As you experiment, only vary one factor at a time. Substitute
known good equipment and see if the problem persists or is eliminated.
As a preliminary check, perform the following steps
1. Do not overlook the obvious—check diagnostic LEDs and make
sure the cables and connectors are securely attached.
2. If there is no power indication, check to be sure the power plug is
properly seated at the repeater and at the AC receptacle.
3. (UTP models only) If the UTP Link indicator does not illuminate,
make sure the cabling is intact and connected to a functioning port on
the network. Check the cable configuration to make sure the
connectors are wired correctly and a cross-over cable is not necessary
(see Appendix A for details).
4. Use only UTP cable designed for use in 10BASE-T applications.
10BASE-T wiring lengths should not exceed 100 meters (328 ft.). The
wiring should be routed away from devices known to emit
electromagnetic interference, such as fluorescent lights, photocopiers,
power transformers and relay equipment.
5. If the Link indicator illuminates on a 10BASE-T segment, but
data transfer is slow, collision-prone or non-existent, verify that
your UTP cable is of Level 3, 4 or 5. Level 1 and 2 voice-quality cable
will not work properly. If the cable is more or less round in section, you
probably have data-grade cable. If, however, the cable appears flat
(such as “Silver Satin” telephone-type cable), you probably have voicegrade cable which may cause transmission problems. If it looks like
telephone cable, double check it. Also, if the wire pairing is incorrect,
you may get a Link indication but have high data error rates.
6. If the Link indicator does not illuminate on a fiber optic
segment, check to be sure the connectors are properly seated and that
Receive connects to Transmit on the network device and vice versa.
Check to be sure the cable conforms to specification and that the
distance has not been exceeded.
7. If data transfer is slow, collision-prone or non-existent on a
10BASE2 (BNC) port, make sure the segment is properly terminated
on both ends and that there is no other termination between these two
points. Also make sure the Terminator Switch is set correctly (see
Chapter 4).
8. If too many collisions are present on an AUI connection, check
to ensure that the external Ethernet transceiver connected to the AUI
port has the SQE Test (Heartbeat) function disabled. Excessive
network loading can also cause excessive collisions.
9. If a fault occurs (fault light stays ON), disengage the repeater module
from the backplane, unplug and replug the power cord, and reseat the
module.
10. If a fault light illuminates when you first power-up a hub, you
can correct this problem by turning off the power and powering-up a
second time or by inserting a firmware cassette in the back-panel port
of the unit. If these actions don’t help, you should initiate a Return
Material Authorization (RMA) to ATI.

Fiber Optic (10BASE-FL) Wiring Specifications
The IEEE 10BASE-FL standard limits a fiber segment length to 2 km
(6,560 ft.). Note, however, that this only applies to topologies in which one
10BASE-FL node connects to another 10BASE-FL node. You can intermix
10BASE-FL and FOIRL nodes, but if the cable connects a 10BASE-FL
node at one end and a FOIRL node at the other, the limitation would
revert to the lesser distance of 1 km (3,280 ft.).
AT-TS06F/ST, SC, and SM hubs support 62.5/125 micron and 50/125
micron duplex optical fiber cable (duplex refers to fiber optic cable pairs).
Normally, duplex fiber optic cable is labeled TX or TD (transmit) and RX or
RD (receive). This means it has a dedicated transmit cable and a dedicated
receive cable. You must connect the receiving port (RX or RD) on one
device to the transmitting (TX or TD) port on a second device for proper
connectivity.
To connect a network device to one of the fiber optic ports on the
AT-TS06F/ST, SC, SM models:
1. Attach both connectors at one end of the cable to the TX and RX ports
on the network device.
2. Connect one of the paired connectors at the other end of the cable to the
RX port on the repeater.
3. Check for On Line indicator to illuminate. If it does, connect the other
of the pair to TX. If On Line stays off, unplug the connector from RX
and use the other of the pair.

Fiber Optic
Connectors
Fiber optic repeaters use one pair of ST, one pair of SC, or one pair of SM
type connectors per port connection.
If your existing network uses ST and SMA systems, an ST-SMA, ST-SC, or
an SMA-SC hybrid cable is commercially available. This cable is a one
meter duplex fiber optic cable with an ST, SC, or SMA connector on one
end and a different one of the three connector types on the other. It
therefore allows easy conversion from one type of connector to the other.
Figure 25 shows the ST (Straight Tip) model whose attachment points
connect bayonet-style.

Attention
The ST connector is keyed. Gently rotate the connector to ensure proper
mating of the ST plug receptacle. Be careful not to force the connector
mating or you might damage the hub’s connector.

10BASE2 Wiring Specifications
10BASE2 (or thinnet) requires a thin coaxial cable, RG58. RG58 is a 10
MHz, baseband cable connected with BNC-series connectors. The cable
must be terminated with 50 Ω terminators and grounded at one end.
Maximum segment length is 185 meters (606 ft.).
The thinnet coaxial cable is plugged directly into the BNC receptacle for
Ports 1 through 8 located on the front panel. Next to each of these ports is
the 50 Ω termination switch (see Figure 30). If you are installing a BNC-T
connector (like the one shown in Figure 31) in the middle portion of a
segment, you must disable the ports’ termination by turning the switch
OFF (0).

MDI/MDI-X Switch
The 24 10BASE-T RJ45 ports on the AT-TS24TR are generally used for
network connections between the hub and a transceiver. Network
connections require a standard “straight-through” cable, meaning that a
pin at one end connects to a pin with the same number at the other end.
However, you may want to use one of these ports to link one hub to
another. This type of connection requires the signal to “crossover,” so that
the TX (transmit) pin at one end connects to the RX (receive) pin at the
other end. You can accomplish this in either of two ways:
❑
❑
You can use a special cross-over cable, available commercially at
most electronic outlets; or...
You can use a built-in method for internally crossing the signal
over, before it is transmitted through the cable
ATI has incorporated the latter feature into the AT-TS24TR module (see
Figure 52). The Medium Dependent Interface (MDI/MDI-X) switch at the
upper left corner of the AT-TS24TR front panel converts RJ45 Port 1 from
a normal network connector into an internally crossed-over port for hubto-hub connection:
❑
❑
The default setting for the switch is MDI-X (standard RJ45 port).
If you want to use Port 1 to connect two hubs, you must set the
switch on one, and only one, of the hubs to the MDI position.

MDI/MDI-X switch
Figure 52: MDI/MDI-X Switch
By setting the MDI/MDI-X switch to MDI, you can connect two hubs via
standard straight-through cable. The switch affects Port 1 only; you can
continue to use Ports 2 through 24 for network connections via straightthrough cable, no matter which way you set the MDI/MDI-X switch.
If you connect a straight-through cable (or any cable for that matter)
between two hubs (or any two nodes) and the network, LEDs do not
indicate a link condition, you can change the MDI/MDI-X switch. The
repeater will not be damaged if the MDI switch is in the wrong position.

cause problems. A cable more or less round in section is likely to be
twisted.
The specifications of 6 common modular cables and their applicability to
10BASE-T network use are shown in Table 7. The maximum length for
10BASE-T UTP segments is 100 meters (328 ft.).

Figure 54 shows a UTP cable with an RJ45 connector. For a 10BASE-T
link between a hub and a Medium Attachment Unit (MAU) or Network
Interface Controller (NIC), the cable is wired straight-through. That is, an
RJ45 receptacle at the hub would wire pin-to-pin to the RJ45 receptacle at
the MAU, as shown in Figure 55.

50-Pin Telco-to-RJ45
Octopus Cables
The 10BASE-T ‘octopus’ cable breaks out the AT-TS12T or AT-TS24T Hub
50-pin Telco connector to individual RJ45 connectors. This is an ideal
method for connecting into a patch panel in the wiring closet. Patch panels
allow for easy configuration and reconfiguration of house wiring
requirements.
When you purchase an octopus cable, ensure that it is wired for 10BASE-T
and that Level 3 UTP is used. This will help maintain 10 megabit data
integrity throughout the wiring system. “Silver Satin” flat cable is out of
specification and should not be used.
50-Pin Telco-to-RJ45
Harmonica
Allied Telesyn offers a harmonica adapter, Model AT-ADAPT-2. The
harmonica-style adapter shown in Figure 58 allows direct conversion from
the 50-pin Telco connector to RJ45 receptacles. There are many different
standards for the pin-out of the harmonica adapter. Make sure that the
pin-out of the adapter you use complies with the 10BASE-T wiring
specification. Refer to Table 8 for the pin-out of the Telco connector for the
AT-TS12T if you order a 10BASE-T harmonica adapter from a wiring
vendor other than ATI.

IEEE 802.3 Quick Primer
10BASE-T
10BASE-T UTP media were implemented to reduce Ethernet wiring costs.
UTP wiring is installed in most buildings for telephone systems. Make
sure the UTP wiring used for 10BASE-T is able to carry the high Ethernet
data rates before you implement a 10BASE-T network solution.
Unlike coaxial Ethernet, 10BASE2 and 10BASE5, 10BASE-T UTP is
point-to-point wiring. Typically, one end is connected to an Ethernet
10BASE-T NIC or transceiver (MAU) and the other end is connected to a
10BASE-T hub (repeater). Straight-through cabling pin-out is used for
hub-to-MAU connections. Hub-to-hub and MAU-to-MAU connections are
allowed when you use a UTP cable with a crossover function crossing TD+
and TD- with RD+ and RD- signals. No other attachments are allowed
along the length of the UTP wire; however, wiring patch panels and
punch-down blocks are allowed for interconnecting segments. The cable
should be at least Level 3 UTP, 100 Ω impedance, 22 to 26 AWG, and
should not exceed 100 meters (328 ft.) in length from one end to the other.
See Table 8 on page 62 for comparison of different UTP cables.
Four-Repeater Rule
Up to four repeater units may be connected, for a total of five segments,
provided that two of the segments are link segments. Link segments (such
as fiber) have no MAU attachments. If all segments are coax segments
with MAU attachments, a maximum of two repeater units and three
segments is allowed.

IEEE 802.3 Quick Primer
10BASE-FL/FOIRL Ethernet
The IEEE 802.3 10BASE-FL standard supports up to 2,000 meters (6,560
ft.) of multimode duplex fiber optic cable in a point-to-point link which
directly attaches two devices. FL is compatible with FOIRL, but FOIRL
only supports connections of 1,000 meters (3,280 ft.). Duplex refers to
support for fiber optic cable pairs, enabling a two-cable fiber optic
connection with transmit mode dedicated to one cable and receive mode to
the other. The wide dynamic range of a fiber optic interface facilitates
installation. When connecting fiber optic cable, you must connect the
receiving pin (RD) to the transmitting pin (TD) and vice versa.
10BASE2 (Thin) Ethernet
When configuring thin coax segments, IEEE 802.3 specifications allow up
to 30 MAU attachments per cable segment, spaced at no less than 0.5
meters (1.64 ft.). The 10BASE2 cable length cannot exceed 185 meters
(606 ft.) per segment. The worst-case propagation delay for a 185 meter
(606 ft.) thin Ethernet segment is 950.9 ns. The propagation delay for thin
(10BASE2) Ethernet cable is 5.14 ns/meter. Both ends of the segment
must be terminated with a 50 Ω termination with a power rating of 0.5
watts or greater. The segment shield must be earth grounded at only one
point on the cable.
10BASE5 (Thick) Ethernet
When configuring 10BASE5 coax segments, IEEE 802.3 specifications
allow 100 MAU attachments or less, spaced at multiples of 2.5 meters (8.2
ft.) measured accurately from the cable end (50 Ω terminator included).
The 10BASE5 cable segment cannot exceed 500 meters (1640 ft.) in
length. Worst-case end-to-end propagation delay of a 10BASE5 coax
segment is 2165 ns. Propagation delay of 10BASE5 Ethernet coax is
calculated at 4.33 ns/meter. Both ends of the segment must be terminated
with a 50 Ω termination with a power rating of 0.5 watts or greater. Earth
grounding of the segment shield must take place at only one point on the
cable.
AUI Drop Cables
AUI or Drop cables can be no longer than 50 meters (164 ft.) each.
Attachments may be made only to the cable ends at the 15-pin D-shell
connector. AUI Drop cables may have a maximum 257 ns propagation
delay, as used for computing the worst-case propagation delay of a cable
system. AUI cable propagation delay is approximately 5.13 ns/meter.
Internally, this cable consists of four shielded twisted-pair wires with an
overall shield and drain wire; there is a 15-pin D-shell male connector at
one end and a 15-pin D-shell female connector at the other end. Cable
impedance is nominally 78 Ω. The AUI cable typically connects a
transceiver attached to a coaxial segment with a DTE (workstation).

Propagation
Propagation delay is the time it takes a signal to travel from the input of a
system component to the output; it is usually measured in nanoseconds.
IEEE 802.3 has specific propagation delay maximums for the Ethernet
components. Cable length plays a major role; i.e., a 50 meters (164 ft.) AUI
cable has a maximum propagation delay of 257 ns. The propagation delay
of cable depends on the length and velocity factor of the cable type.
Round-trip propagation delay throughout the entire cable system, from
farthest ends, may not exceed 51.7 µs, ± 4 µs.

10BASE2—Also called thin Ethernet, thinnet or CheaperNet, a 10 MHz
baseband specification. Cable impedance is 50 Ω and maximum coaxial
segment length is 185 meters (607 ft.).
10BASE5—Also called thick Ethernet, a 10 MHz baseband specification. Cable
impedance is 50 Ω and maximum coaxial segment is 500 meters (1,640 ft.). The
cable is commonly referred to as yellow cable. Thick Ethernet cable is typically
used as a trunk or backbone path for the network.
10BASE-FL—IEEE 802.3 Fiber Optic Ethernet. A fiber optic standard that
allows up to 2,000 meters (6,560 ft.) of multimode duplex fiber optic cable in a
point-to-point link.
10BASE-T—IEEE 802.3 UTP Ethernet. Low-cost Level 3 or better UTP wiring
affords 100 meters (328 ft.) of point-to-point link segments. UTP uses RJ45
connectors and sometimes 50-pin Telco connectors to a patch panel and runs at
10 MHz.
50-PIN TELCO (RJ21)—This connector is very common in 10BASE-T wiring.
Unlike the RJ45 connector, the 50-pin Telco connector concentrates up to 12
UTP connections onto one connection. This concentration of UTP ports is then
broken out for connection to a punch-down block inside a building’s wiring
closet. 50-pin Telco connections provide a very clean, uncluttered interface to
the building’s wiring.
AT-ADAPT-2— A harmonica-style adapter that allows direct conversion from
a 50-pin Telco connector to RJ45 receptacles.
ATTACHMENT UNIT INTERFACE (AUI)—Connection between a MAU
(transceiver) and a DTE (typically a workstation). Includes a 15-pin D-sub
connector and sometimes a 15-conductor twisted pair cable. Maximum length
is 50 meters (164 ft.).
BACKUP MODULE— A repeater that behaves as the management module
when the Master fails in a department concentrator.
BASEBAND COAXIAL SYSTEM—A system whereby information is directly
encoded and impressed on the coaxial transmission medium. At any point on
the medium, only one information signal at a time can be present without
disruption.

BAYONET NUT COUPLE (BNC) CONNECTOR—A 10BASE2 thin coax
connector with push-on BNC locking lug. This lug quickly locks into place with
a half twist.
BIT RATE (BR)—The rate of data throughput on the medium in bits per
second. Ethernet specifies 10 million bits per second.
BIT TIME—The duration of one bit symbol (1/BR). Ethernet specifies a bit
time of 100 ns.
CARRIER SENSE—In a LAN, an ongoing activity of a data station that
detects whether another station is transmitting.
CARRIER SENSE MULTIPLE ACCESS with COLLISION DETECT
(CSMA/CD)—This is the access method employed by IEEE 802.3 LAN
transceivers, by which multiple stations compete for use of the transmission
medium (coax cable) for data packet transmission. It provides for a level of
error detection should that transmission be corrupted or impeded by
contention for the transmission medium.
COAX SEGMENT—A segment of Ethernet cable that contains MAUs.
COAXIAL CABLE—A two-conductor (center conductor, shield system),
concentric, constant-impedance transmission line used as the trunk medium in
the baseband system.
COAXIAL CABLE SEGMENT—A length of coaxial cable sections and
coaxial connectors, terminated at each end in its characteristic impedance.
COLLISION—An unwanted condition that results from concurrent
transmissions on the physical medium.
COMPATIBILITY INTERFACE—The MDI coaxial cable interface and the
AUI branch cable interface, the two points at which hardware compatibility is
defined to allow connection of independently designed and manufactured
components with the baseband transmission system.
CROSSOVER—Wiring used when connecting a 10BASE-T MAU to another
10BASE-T MAU or a 10BASE-T hub to another 10BASE-T hub. For example,
one 10BASE-T MAU has the TD pair on the same pins as another 10BASE-T
MAU. If pins were wired straight, there would be two transmitters on one pair
and no receiver. As a solution, the crossover cable crosses the TD pair with the
RD pair, to connect the TD pins on one end to the RD pins at the other end.
D-SUB CONNECTOR—The AUI cable uses 15-pin D-sub connectors. “D”
refers to the shape of the connector shell. Also called miniature D, DB15, or
DIX connectors.
DATA COMMUNICATION EQUIPMENT (DCE)—In RS-232 specification,
a module, such as a modem, for connecting a DTE to other equipment. A
repeater connected to a terminal or workstation for Omega management use is
wired as a DCE.
DATA TERMINAL EQUIPMENT (DTE)—In RS-232 specification, a module
typically at the end of a segment (i.e., uninterrupted length of Ethernet cable).
The DTE could be an Ethernet workstation, repeater or bridge.

DEPARTMENT CONCENTRATOR—Hub that provides a large number of
workstation connections. The term department concentrator refers to multiple
repeaters housed in an AT-CTS 7-slot or AT-C36C 8-slot chassis. See Hub/
Repeater, Repeater.
DIX CONNECTOR—See D-Sub Connector
FOIRL — A fiber optic standard that allows up to 1,000 meters (3,280 ft.) of
multimode duplex fiber optic cable in a point-to-point link.
HARMONICA ADAPTER—This adapter provides a simple way to convert
the 50-pin Telco connection to RJ45 connections. See AT-Adapt-2.
HEARTBEAT—See SQE
HOT SWAPPING— The process of replacing a hub module without bringing
down the network. This process occurs when you slide an active module into a
fully powered-up concentrator, replacing a failed module.
HOUSE WIRING—House wiring is the existing wiring inside a building. This
wiring generally originates from one or more wiring closets, such as a
telephone room. Some older buildings may have wiring unsuitable for 10
megabit data rates. In these circumstances, it is recommended that the wiring
be tested with a 10BASE-T signal/wire tester.
HUB/REPEATER—A hub is a central signal distributor. It is used in a wiring
topology consisting of several point-to-point segments originating from a
central point. The term hub is often used interchangeably with the term
repeater. Multiport 10BASE-T, 10BASE2 and fiber optic (10BASE-FL, FOIRL)
repeaters are considered hubs. See Repeater.
HUB-to-HUB WIRING—See MAU-to-MAU Wiring
HUB-to-MAU WIRING—UTP cables for 10BASE-T hub-to-MAU or NIC
cards are wired straight-through. An RJ45 receptacle at the hub would wire
pin-to-pin to the RJ45 receptacle at the MAU.
IMPEDANCE—An electrical characteristic of a circuit dealing with the
combination of the AC and DC resistance and the appearance of that resistance
to attached circuits.
JABBER LOCK-UP—The MAU’s ability to automatically inhibit the
transmit data from reaching the medium if the transmit data time exceeds a
specified duration. This duration is in the range of 20 ms to 150 ms. Jabber
lock-up protects the medium from being overrun with data packets from a
possibly defective device.
JAM—This is a term used to describe the collision reinforcement signal output
sent by the repeater to all ports. The jam signal consists of 96 bits of alternating
1s and 0s. Its purpose is to extend a collision sufficiently so that all devices
cease transmitting.
JITTER—The shift of the data bit in respect to a standard clock cycle. Jitter
is undesirable and must be minimized.
LINK SEGMENT—The link segment of coaxial cable is a segment that has no
MAU devices, but links together two LAN devices such as repeaters.

Glossary
LINK TEST—In 10BASE-T Ethernet, there is a link test function that
validates the UTP link. This consists of a pulse transmitted from point A on one
pair that is validated at point B. Point B also transmits a pulse on the second
pair to be validated by point A. These pulses occur during media idle states (in
between packets).
MANAGED MODULE— An intelligent repeater in a department
concentrator chassis that makes management data available to the Master.
MANAGEMENT AGENT—Software that is used to view hub activity and set
hub variables.
MASTER—A repeater in the topmost position in a department concentrator
chassis that contains and downloads the management agent software to
Backup and Slave modules. The Master contains the only active image of the
management agent and controls the management functions of the Backup and
Slaves.
MAU—See Medium Attachment Unit
MAU-to-MAU, HUB-to-HUB WIRING—10BASE-T MAU-to-MAU or hub-tohub wiring generally requires a crossover cable located somewhere along the
UTP cable run. This may commonly occur at the punch-down block or between
the RJ45 wall receptacle and the workstation.
MAU/TRANSCEIVER—An Ethernet transceiver is a MAU. A 10BASE-T
MAU interfaces the UTP media to an AUI port on a workstation, repeater,
bridge or other Ethernet device.
MDI/MDI-X—See Medium Dependent Interface
MEDIUM ATTACHMENT UNIT (MAU)—In a LAN, a device used in a data
station to couple the DTE to the transmission medium.
MEDIUM DEPENDENT INTERFACE (MDI)—The mechanical and
electrical interface between a hub and a transceiver (MAU). MDI-X is another
version of the interface that enables hubs to connect using different pin-outs,
thereby avoiding conflicts that occur when receiving and transmitting packets
use the same pin-out.
MODULE—A single repeater when it is mounted with other repeaters in an
AT-CTS or AT-C36 department concentrator chassis.
N-SERIES—A barrel-shaped, threaded connector used on 10BASE5 (thick
Ethernet) coaxial cable.
PATCH PANEL—A 10BASE-T patch panel may be used between a punchdown block and a UTP workstation. The patch panel generally has a female
RJ45 connector on the front for each workstation and a Telco (RJ21) connector
on the back; through the RJ21 connector, the patch panel is wired to a punchdown block. This provides a convenient way for the installer or network
manager to connect the hub 10BASE-T ports into the desired building
locations.
POLARITY CORRECTION—Many 10BASE-T UTP ports have a polarity
correction function. If the UTP wiring has RD- and RD+ inadvertently crossed,
the polarity correction function will sample the signal and electrically swap the
wires. If the TD- and TD+ wires are crossed, the correction would occur at the
MAU on the other end of the UTP link. This occurs within a single pair and
should not be confused with the crossover cable.

IEEE 802.3 stipulates specific propagation delay maximums for computing
propagation budgets when you design a LAN. Cable length plays a major role
in propagation delay; for example, a 50-meter (164-foot) AUI cable has a
maximum allowable propagation delay of 257 ns. The propagation delay of
cable depends on the length and velocity factor of the cable type. There are also
propagation delays associated with electronics attached to the system.
PUNCH-DOWN BLOCK—The punch-down block is the wiring panel where
the house wiring from the building’s offices terminates. This is where many
10BASE-T hubs would be located. Wiring installers use a special punch-down
tool to insert the UTP wire for data and voice applications.
REPEATER—A device used to extend the length, topology, or
interconnectivity of the physical medium beyond that imposed by a single
segment, up to the maximum allowable end-to-end trunk transmission line
length. Repeaters perform the basic actions of restoring signal amplitude,
waveform and timing applied to normal data and collision signals.
RJ45—This connector is a 10BASE-T standard for connecting UTP cabling. It
is inexpensive and easy to install onto UTP cable.
SIGNAL QUALITY ERROR (SQE)—Also referred to as Collision or Collision
Presence. This occurs when two devices attempt to transmit at the same time,
which is an illegal condition. All ATI transceivers test for SQE.
SIMPLE NETWORK MANAGEMENT PROTOCOL (SNMP)— SNMP is a
TCP/IP protocol that generally uses the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) to
exchange messages between a management information base and a
management client residing on a network. Since SNMP does not rely on the
underlying communication protocols, it can be made available over other
protocols, such as XNS or DECnet.
SLAVE— A repeater that behaves as a “dumb” module managed by a Master
in a department concentrator chassis. Slaves operating standalone perform
only simple regeneration and retiming tasks associated with repeating and are
not manageable.
SQE TEST—Commonly referred to as Heartbeat, is a special 802.3 signal sent
by the MAU to the DTE to test the collision detection function. Some DTE want
SQE and others do not. Repeaters do not want the SQE Test.
STANDALONE—Repeater operating as a hub on its own; i.e., not a module
among other modules in a department concentrator chassis.
STRAIGHT-THROUGH—A type of wiring connection where the pins of one
connector interface with the same pins of another connector. For example, pin
1 of one connector connects to pin 1 of another connector.
SUBSCRIBER CHANNEL (SC) CONNECTOR—A type of port connection
where the pins connect through a square push-pull mating interface.
SUB MINATURE ASSEMBLY (SMA) CONNECTOR—A type of port
connection where the pins connect through a threaded attachment interface.
(Also referred to as an SM Connector.)
STRAIGHT TIP (ST) CONNECTOR—A type of port connection where the
pins connect through a bayonet-style interface.

Glossary
TCP/IP PROTOCOLS—A set of protocols for intercomputer communication,
including network level (Internet Protocol), transport level (Transmission
Control Protocol or TCP) and application level protocols (for example, Telnet
terminal emulation). TCP/IP has been used for many years in two country-wide
networks, the ARPANET and MILNET. Recently, TCP/IP has become very
popular with users of a variety of multi-user computer systems and
engineering workstations. Most UNIX computers use TCP/IP over Ethernet as
the main intercomputer networking technology. TCP/IP is also popular among
PC users, particularly as a means of communication with large multi-user
computers.
TELCO CONNECTOR— A 50-pin receptacle that plugs into the front of the
hub, enabling cables from external devices to connect to the hub.
THICK ETHERNET—See 10BASE5
THIN ETHERNET—See 10BASE2
TRUNK CABLE—The coaxial cable used to distribute signals over long
distances throughout a cable system.
UNMANAGED MODULE— A repeater that behaves as a “dumb” repeater in
a department concentrator chassis (i.e., without a Master). It performs simple
repeating tasks like packet retiming and regeneration, but is not managed.
UNSHIELDED TWISTED PAIR (UTP)—A cable used in 10BASE-T wiring
that consists of at least two twisted pairs of 22 to 26 AWG wire. The pairs
should have at least 3 twists per foot and have an impedance of 100 Ω. Level 3,
Level 4 and Level 5 UTP cables fit these criteria.
