SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
THE GPIM-01 AND GPIM-09 GIGABIT ETHERNET MODULES
USE 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 -12.6 dBm or 55 x 10-6 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.

1.1
OVERVIEW
The SmartSwitches shown in Figure 1-1 are Ethernet/Fast Ethernet interface modules for
Cabletron Systems 6C105 chassis. The 6H202-24 has 24 RJ45 switched ports. The 6H252-17 has
16 RJ45 switched ports and 1 slot for an optional High Speed Interface Module (HSIM) or Very
High Speed Interface Module (VHSIM), and the 6H262-18 has 16 RJ45 switched ports and 2 slots
for Gigabit Port Interface Modules (GPIMs).
The SmartSwitches can be used to connect individual high-bandwidth user devices, such as
workstations, or to provide a central switching point for multiple 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet
segments. The optional HSIMs provide one or more high speed uplinks to networking
technologies such as Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI),
Wide Area Network (WAN) and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). Some HSIMs can provide
additional Fast Ethernet ports in varying media types. The optional VHSIMs provide very high
speed uplinks to networking technologies such as ATM and Gigabit Ethernet. The optional GPIMs
provide connectivity to Gigabit Ethernet using fiber optic cable.
SmartSwitch ports can be configured to control frame traffic several ways, including prioritizing
traffic flow according to protocol type. SmartSwitches can also be configured to establish Virtual
Local Area Networks (VLANs) and control the flow of frames associated with each VLAN
according to priority and Ether type. Detailed information about VLANs is provided in the Local
Management User’s Guide.

Introduction
The 6H202-24, 6H252-17, and 6H262-18 SmartSwitches
Overview
1.1.1
Connectivity
The SmartSwitch modules connect to Ethernet networks or workstations through the RJ45 ports on
the front panel. These ports are IEEE 802.3 10BASE-T and IEEE 802.3u 100BASE-TX
compliant. The ports support Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair cables with an impedance
between 85 and 111 ohms at lengths up to 100 meters for both 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps Ethernet
connections. They also support Category 3 for 10 Mbps, but not 100 Mbps Ethernet connections.
The 6H252-17 has a slot for an optional HSIM or VHSIM to provide additional connectivity to
various networking technologies.
The 6H262-18 has 2 GPIM slots for optional GPIMs that can provide additional connectivity to
Gigabit Ethernet, operating in full duplex mode. One of the ports is active and the other is
redundant. Redundancy is triggered based on link activity. GPIM 1 is the active port by default.
1.1.2
Auto-Negotiation
The twisted pair ports on the front panel of the SmartSwitch modules have the ability to
auto-negotiate the type of connection required to provide a link to another device. During
Auto-Negotiation, two devices automatically exchange information “telling” each other what their
operating capabilities are. The Auto-Negotiation feature targets the maximum capabilities that can
be reached between the two devices. For example, the SmartSwitches adjust 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 SmartSwitches
adjust to 10 Mbps operation.
When Auto-Negotiation is 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 the SmartSwitch cannot auto-negotiate, the module
interface operates according to the capability of the other device.
1.1.3
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 6C105
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.
Introduction
1-3
Overview
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.
The module will reboot after RAD is successful.
NOTE
1.1.4
Full Duplex Switched Ethernet
Each switched Fast Ethernet port on the SmartSwitches supports 10/100 Mbps operation and can
be configured to operate in Full Duplex Switched Ethernet (FDSE) mode. FDSE allows each port
to provide up to 200 Mbps of bandwidth.
1.1.5
SmartTrunk
SmartTrunk, also referred to as SmartTrunking, is Cabletron Systems’ terminology for load
balancing or load sharing. SmartTrunk technology provides an easy-to-implement mechanism to
group, or aggregate, multiple links of any technology together to scale the backbone bandwidth
beyond the limitations of a single link. All links are user-configurable so 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.
For more information on SmartTrunk configuration, refer to the Cabletron Systems SmartTrunk
User’s Guide.
1.1.6
Remote Monitoring (RMON)
The SmartSwitches support 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-specific extension 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 a MIB-2 interface if a
broadcast threshold is crossed.
1-4
Introduction
Overview
1.1.7
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.
1.1.8
Port/VLAN Redirect Functions
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 single destination port within the device. This feature
allows frames, 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 were directly connected to the LAN segment
of the source port.
The VLAN redirect function is similar to the port redirect function except that the frames received
by the device are redirected to a designated destination port according to the VLAN classification
of the frames received. The VLAN redirect function does not support redirecting errors, and is
only supported when the device is operating as an 802.1Q switch. Multiple VLANs can be directed
to the same ports.
1.1.9
Rate Limiting
The Rate Limiting feature enables the SmartSwitch device to have control of traffic rates on a
per-port, per-priority basis. The network administrator can configure a rate limit (from 100 kbps to
1 Gbps) for a given port with an associated list of IEEE 802.1p priorities (which can include one,
some, or all of the eight priority levels defined in 802.1p). Each rate limit is specified as an
inbound or an outbound limit. The combined rate of all traffic on the port that matches the listed
priorities cannot exceed the programmed limit. If the rate exceeds the defined limit, frames are
dropped until the rate falls below the limit.
Administrators can configure up to four rate limit rules per port; however, each rule must not
include conflicting 802.1p priority values. In order to control traffic inbound and outbound on the
same port, two rate limit rules must be configured (one inbound and one outbound). Since the rate
limiting operation occurs after the processing of the multi-layer classification rules, the two
features can be combined to provide application-aware rate limiting.
This traffic rate function is not supported on ports configured as SmartTrunk ports.
NOTE
For more information about the application of the Rate Limiting function, refer to the Local
Management User’s Guide.
Introduction
1-5
Overview
1.1.10 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-registration of
GARP attributes such as VLAN and multicast group membership. For more details on how GVRP
and GMRP handle frames under GARP, and how to configure the switch ports to take advantage of
this operation, refer to the SmartSwitch Series 6H202, 6H203, 6H252, 6H253, 6H258, 6H259,
6H262, 6E233, and 6E253 Local Management User’s Guide.
1.1.11 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. Both devices must support the
IEEE 802.3x standard for flow control to work.
The SmartSwitches support 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. Flow control can be enabled or disabled on a port-by-port basis.
Back pressure flow control is supported on all Ethernet ports operating in the standard mode of
operation. Flow control can be enabled or disabled on a port-by-port basis.
1.1.12 802.1 Port Priority
IEEE 802.1 port priority is incorporated in the IEEE 802.1D standard. It is used to assign a default
priority to the frames received without priority information in their tag header, to map prioritized
frames to the appropriate transmit queues, and to prioritize frames according to protocol type.
1-6
Introduction
Overview
1.1.13 Management
Management of the SmartSwitch modules and the 6C105 chassis is accomplished using the Local
Management application or remote SNMP management stations. Local Management is accessible
through the RS232 COM port on the front panel using a local VT100 terminal, or a remote VT100
terminal via a modem connection, and in-band via a Telnet connection. In-band remote
management is possible through any SNMP compliant Network Management Software.
Local Management, as described in your Local Management User’s Guide, provides the ability to
manage the SmartSwitches and offers information for Ethernet HSIMs or VHSIMs. Local
Management information for non-Ethernet HSIMs 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 About
This Guide section.
1.1.14 Switching Options
SmartSwitches provide 802.1Q switching or SecureFast Switching Virtual Network Services
between all of the front panel interfaces, including any optional HSIM, VHSIM or GPIM. In the
802.1Q mode (the default mode of operation), the switch functions as an 802.1D switch until
VLANs are configured.
SecureFast switching and IEEE 802.1Q switching allow migration to Virtual Network
technologies without requiring the replacement of existing equipment.
1.1.15 Distributed Chassis Management
From a management perspective, the 6C105 SmartSwitch 6000 chassis can be viewed as a single
entity with a single IP address. Its systems management functions are distributed to all modules.
The chassis can be managed using a single IP address, or the modules can be managed separately
by individual IP addresses. When using a single IP address, system wide settings can be done from
the chassis menu in Local Management, while module settings are done by selecting the specific
module to be modified and changing the settings for that module.
1.1.16 Optional HSIMs and VHSIMs
The 6H252-17 provides a slot for an optional High Speed Interface Module (HSIM) or Very High
Speed Interface Module (VHSIM) for additional connectivity to various networking technologies.
Any exceptions to the HSIMs and VHSIMs that operate in the 6H252-17 are listed in the Release
Notes shipped with the 6H252-17.
Introduction
1-7
Overview
1.1.17 Optional GPIMs

CONNECTING TO THE NETWORK
This section provides the procedures for connecting twisted pair segments from the network or
other devices to the SmartSwitches.
NOTE
3.5.1
If the SmartSwitches are being installed in a network using SmartTrunking, there are
rules concerning the network cable and port configurations that must be followed for
SmartTrunking to operate properly. Before connecting the cables, refer to the Cabletron
Systems SmartTrunk User’s Guide for the configuration information.
Connecting Twisted Pair Cables to Fixed Ports
All fixed front panel ports of the SmartSwitch are 10/100 ports with internal crossovers. When
connecting a workstation, use a straight-through cable. When connecting networking devices, such
as another bridge, repeater, or router, use a crossover cable.
NOTE
All SmartSwitch front panel ports support Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP)
cabling with an impedance between 85 and 111 ohms. Category 3 cable may be used if
the connection is going to be used only for 10 Mbps.
Connect a twisted pair segment to the SmartSwitch as follows:
1. Ensure that the device connected to the other end of the segment is powered ON.

specifications in the Appendix B, for each GPIM carefully before connecting a GPIM to the
network.
NOTES
An odd number of crossovers (preferably one) must be maintained between like devices
so that the transmit port of one device is connected to the receive port of the other
device and vice versa.
If the fiber optic cable being used has SC style connectors that do not resemble MIC
style connectors, or has SC connectors on one end and a different type on the other,
such as ST connectors, ensure that the proper cable cross-over occurs.

network status to aid in diagnosing network problems. Refer to Table 4-1 for a description of the
LEDs.
Refer to the HSIM or VHSIM User’s Guide for a description of the HSIM or VHSIM LEDs. Refer
to Section 4.2 for the GPIM LED descriptions.
NOTE
The terms flashing, blinking, and solid used in the LED definition tables of this chapter
indicate the following:
Flashing indicates an irregular LED pulse.
Blinking indicates a steady LED pulse (approximately 50% on, 50% off).
Solid indicates a steady LED light. No pulsing.
Troubleshooting
4-1
Using LANVIEW
4.1.1
The LED Mode Switch
The SmartSwitches have an LED mode switch, located on the front panel, that allows the user to
change the function of the LEDs. Refer to Figure 4-1. The 6H202-24 and the 6H262-18 have the
switch positioned near the bottom of the board. The 6H252-17 has the switch positioned near the
top of the board. The switch functionality applies no matter where on the modules the switch is
positioned. 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 or full duplex mode.
NOTE
The LED mode switch does not change the function of any LEDs on an HSIM or VHSIM
installed in the 6H252-17. The GPIMs installed in the 6H262-18 will have the indications
as listed starting in Table 4-4.
Table 4-1 provides the definitions of the LED states that occur when the LED mode switch is in the
UP position. Table 4-2 provides the definitions of the LED states that occur when the LED mode
switch is in the DOWN position.

Switch Settings, Upgrades, and Installations
This appendix covers the following items:
•
Setting the mode switches (Section C.1)
•
Installing the DRAM SIMM (Section C.2)
•
Location for installing HSIMs or VHSIMs (Section C.3)
!
CAUTION
C.1
!
You need an antistatic wrist strap (provided with 6C105 chassis) to perform the
procedures in this appendix. Use the antistatic wrist strap when performing any of the
procedures in this appendix to minimize ESD damage to the devices involved.
SETTING THE MODE SWITCHES
Read the appropriate sections to be fully aware of the consequences when changing
switch settings.
CAUTION
Only qualified personnel should change switch settings.
These switches are set at the factory and do not need to be changed unless you intend to perform
the following:
•
Force download a new image file from a BootP server.
•
Clear NVRAM and restore all user-entered parameters such as the IP address and Subnet Masks
to the SmartSwitch “Default” configuration settings.
•
Clear user-entered passwords stored in NVRAM and restore the default passwords.
Figure C-1 shows the location of the mode switches and the switch settings for normal operation.

Figure C-1
Module Mode Switch Location/Component Layout
Switch definitions and positions are as follows:
•
Switches 1 through 4 – For Cabletron Systems use only.
•
Switch 5 – COM Port Autobaud. The default (OFF) position enables Autobaud sensing on the
COM port for Local Management sessions. Changing the switch to the ON position disables
Autobaud sensing and sets the COM port to 9600 baud for Local Management sessions.
•
Switch 6 – Forced BootP. Changing the position of this switch (i.e., moving the switch from one
position to the other) clears download information from NVRAM and forces the SmartSwitch
to download a new image file from a BootP server after power to the chassis is restored.
NOTE
After changing the position of switch 6, DO NOT reapply power to the chassis until there
is a station acting as a BootP server, which contains the image file.
•
After changing the position of switch 6 and restarting the module, the SmartSwitch requests a
new image download until they either receive a new image or the RESET button on the front
panel is pressed. When the RESET button is pressed, the SmartSwitch continues trying to
contact a BootP server, but will time out in approximately one minute. If the module times out,
the image is downloaded from its FLASH memory.
•
Switch 7 – Clear NVRAM. Changing the position of this switch resets NVRAM on the next
power up. ALL user entered parameters, such as IP addresses, subnet masks, SNMP traps, and
switching functions are restored to their factory default settings.
C-2
Switch Settings, Upgrades, and Installations
SIMM Upgrade
•
Switch 8 – Reset Password/Community Strings. Changing the position of this switch clears
only the user-entered passwords stored in NVRAM, and restores the default passwords. Once
the SmartSwitch resets, the passwords can either be reentered or the default passwords (Public
and ENTER) may be used.
NOTE
C.2
Do not change the position of switch 8 unless it is necessary to reset the module
super-user configured passwords to their factory default settings.
SIMM UPGRADE
Memory upgrade is available for the SmartSwitch modules to expand the DRAM to 32 MB. This
section explains how to locate and add/replace a Single In-line Memory Module (SIMM). For
information on the available SIMM upgrades, contact Cabletron Systems. For details on getting
help, refer to Section 1.2 for details.
