Basic information on Ethernet switching
Ethernet switching
Ethernet switches forward data packets directly from the input port to the appropriate output
port during data exchange based on the address information. Ethernet switches operate on a
direct delivery basis.
Essentially, switches have the following functions:
• Connection of collision domains / subnets
Since repeaters and star couplers (hubs) operate at the physical level, their use is
restricted to the span of a collision domain. Switches connect collision domains. Their use
is therefore not restricted to the maximum span of a repeater network. On the contrary,
extremely large networks with very large spans are possible with switches. The distances
achieved depend on the fiber-optic interfaces used in the devices and the FO fibers used
(see technical specifications).
• Containing load
By filtering the data traffic based on the Ethernet (MAC) addresses, local data traffic
remains local. In contrast to repeaters or hubs, which distribute data unfiltered to all ports
/ network nodes, switches operate selectively. Only data intended for nodes in other
subnets is switched from the input port to the appropriate output port of the switch. To
make this possible, a table assigning Ethernet (MAC) addresses to output ports is
created by the switch in a “teach-in" mode.
• Limiting errors to the affected subnet.
By checking the validity of a data packet on the basis of the checksum which each data
packet contains, the switch ensures that bad data packets are not transported further.
Collisions in one network segment are not passed on to other segments.
The need for Industrial Ethernet switches
With over 95% of LANs based on Ethernet, this is the most commonly used technology. The
use of switches is particularly important: They allow extensive networks with large numbers
of nodes to be set up, increase the data throughput, and simplify network expansion.
The IE Switches X-300 from SIMATIC NET are designed for use in high-speed plant
networks that will also meet future requirements. With the HSR redundancy function and
standby coupling of rings, high network availability can be achieved. Support of IT standards
such as VLAN, RSTP, IGMP, and GARP makes seamless integration of automation
networks in existing office networks possible.
The IE Switches X-300 are designed for use in switching cubicles and cabinets.

Description
2.1 Basic information on Ethernet switching
Technical options (network topologies)
The IE Switches X-300 simplify the expansion of a network regardless of the network
topology.
You can use an IE Switch X-300 in the following network topologies:
• Linear structure
• Star/tree structure
• Ring with redundancy manager
The maximum cable length is 10 km for single mode gigabit transmission. A mixed topology
between IE Switch X-300s and OSMs/ESMs is possible on the optical ports. Mixed operation
in the topology between SCALANCE X308-2 and an OSM over the optical ports is not
possible because the SCALANCE X308-2 only supports gigabit.
Using an IE Switch X-300 as the redundancy manager in a ring with redundancy manager
provides greater availability. If there is an interruption on the connection between these
switches, the IE Switch X-300 used as redundancy manager acts like a switch and in a very
short time creates a line from the ring with redundancy manager. As a result, a functional,
end-to-end structure is restored. For information on this topic, refer to the Configuration
Manual "SIMATIC NET; Industrial Ethernet Switches SCALANCE X-300 SCALANCE X-400."
2.1.1
Linear structure
Functional description
Linear structures can be created with the IE Switches X-300. The cascading depth and total
span of a network are limited only by the signal propagation times of the communication
connections.
Properties of the linear structure
Each IE Switch X-300 communicates over a TP or FO cable with a neighboring Ethernet
switch. Communication is possible over the optical or the electrical ports.

Ring with redundancy manager
To increase availability, linear (bus) topologies of up to 50 switches can be closed to form a
ring:
• Optical: SCALANCE X-400, SCALANCE X-300
• Electrical: SCALANCE X-400, SCALANCE X-300, SCALANCE X-200 or ESM
Functional description
The two ends of the bus are closed to form a ring by an IE Switch X-300 operating as a
redundancy manager.
The redundancy manager function is enabled by the SELECT/SET button or implemented by
a setting in the software.
For more detailed information, refer to the configuration manual "Industrial Ethernet Switches
SCALANCE X-300 SCALANCE X-400."
In contrast to the ring ports of the other IE Switches X-300, the ring ports of the redundancy
manager are disconnected when the network is operating problem-free. The IE Switch X-300
operating in the redundancy manager mode monitors the connected bus over its ring ports
and switches the ring ports through if there is an interruption on the connected bus; in other
words, it restores a functioning bus over this substitute path. Reconfiguration is achieved

within 0.3 s. As soon as the problem is eliminated, the original topology is restored; in other
words, the ring ports in the redundancy manager are disconnected from each other again.
In a ring with redundancy manager, there can only be one IE switch configured as a
redundancy manager.
(Defaults are ports 9 and 10. Both the RM and the IE switches in the ring must be connected
over these ring ports to allow redundancy to function.)
Electrical ring ports
An electrical ring with redundancy manager can be set up since the device provides
connectors (RJ-45 jacks) that allow attachment of electrical (twisted pair) connections (10,
100, 1000 Mbps). The factory setting defines the two ports no. 9 and 10 as ring ports. The
ring ports can, however, be reconfigured individually.
Optical ring ports (1000 Mbps)
An optical ring with redundancy manager requires the use of SCALANCE X308-2,
X308-2 LD. (Optical ports 9 and 10 are the defaults.
Configuration example
Sample configurations with IE Switch X-300, SIMATIC S7-200/300/400, operator control and

Redundant coupling of two subnets in mixed operation with SCALANCE X310
and SCALANCE X308-2
In this case, network segments are rings with a redundancy manager (RM). The rings can
also be interrupted at one point (linear topology).
For a redundant link as shown in the figure, two IE Switches X-300 must be configured within
a network segment. This configuration is set in Web Based Management, Command Line
Interface or using SNMP access. For more detailed information, refer to the "Configuration
Manual SCALANCE X-300 and SCALANCE X-400 Industrial Ethernet Switches". The two
IE Switches X-300 connected in the configuration exchange data frames with each other to
synchronize their operating statuses (one device is master and the other slave). If there are
no problems, only the link from the master to the other network segment is active. If this link
fails (for example due to a link-down or a device failure), the slave activates its link as long
as the problem persists.
Note
If IE Switches X-300 or SCALANCE X408-2 devices are used exclusively for redundant
coupling of the gigabit rings, the coupling links can also be designed with a gigabit
transmission rate.

Unpacking and checking
Unpacking, checking
1. Make sure that the package is complete.
2. Check all the parts for transport damage.
Warning
Do not use any parts that show evidence of damage!
2.2.3
Power supply and signaling contact
Power supply
The power supply is connected using a 4-pin plug-in terminal block.
The power supply can be connected redundantly. Both inputs are isolated. There is no
distribution of load. When a redundant power supply is used, the power supply unit with the
higher output voltage supplies the IE Switch X-300 alone. The power supply is connected
over a high resistance with the enclosure to allow an ungrounded set up. The two power
inputs are non-floating.

Operating Instructions, 01, A5E01113043
Description
2.2 Description of the SCALANCE X-300 product line
Signaling contact
The signaling contact (relay contact) is a floating switch with which error/fault states can be
signaled by breaking the contact.
The signaling contact is connected to a 2-pin plug-in terminal block.
The signaling by the signaling contact is synchronized with the fault LED, in other words, all
errors displayed by this LED (freely configurable) are also signaled on the signaling contact.
If an internal fault occurs, the fault LED lights up and the signaling contact opens.
The connection or disconnection of a communication node on an unmonitored port does not
lead to an error message.
The signaling contact remains activated until the error/fault is eliminated or until the current
status is entered in the fault mask as the new desired status.

The core diameter of the multimode FOC is 50 µm; the light source is an LED. Many modes
(light beams) are used for signal transmission. The propagation times of the light pulses
(dispersion) restrict the maximum range considerably.
Transmission range
The maximum transmission range (segment length) is 750 m when using SIMATIC NET
fiber-optic multimode FOC with SC duplex connectors.
Connectors
SC duplex female connectors are used.
2.2.5.2
1000Base-LX
Transmission rate
The transmission rate of the optical gigabit ports is 1 Gbps.
Transmission mode
Transmission with 1000Base-LX is defined in the IEEE 802.3z standard and is specified as
1000 Mbps transmission rate and full duplex.
Transmission medium
Data is transmitted over single mode FOC. The wavelength is 1310 nm.
The core diameter of the single mode FOC is 9 or 10 µm; the light source is a laser diode. To
transmit a signal, only one mode (light beam) is used greatly reducing dispersion. As a
result, the maximum range of single mode FOC is greater than that of multimode FOC.
Transmission range
The maximum transmission distance (segment length) is 10 km for 1000Base-LX
transmission.
Connectors
SC duplex female connectors are used.

Description
2.2 Description of the SCALANCE X-300 product line
2.2.6
C-PLUG (configuration plug)
Area of application
The C-PLUG is an exchangeable medium for storage of the configuration data of the IE
Switch and ships with the product. This means that the configuration data remains available
if the IE Switch is replaced.
Notice
The C-PLUG must only be removed or inserted when the power supply to the device is
turned off.
How it works
Power is supplied by the IE Switch. The C-PLUG retains all data permanently when the
power is turned off.
If an empty C-PLUG (factory settings or deleted with the Clean function) is inserted, all the
configuration data of the IE Switch is saved to it automatically when the device starts up.
Changes to the configuration during operation without operator intervention are saved on the
C-PLUG if this is in the "ACCEPTED" status.
An IE Switch with an accepted C-PLUG inserted uses the configuration data of the C-PLUG
automatically when it starts up. Acceptance is possible only when the data was written by a
compatible device type.
This allows an IE Switch to be replaced quickly and simply. The C-PLUG is taken from the
failed component and inserted in the replacement. The first time it is started up, the
replacement device has the same configuration as the failed device except for the MAC
address set by the vendor.
Diagnostics
Inserting a C-PLUG that does not contain the configuration of a compatible device type,
accidentally removing the C-PLUG or general malfunctions of the C-PLUG are signaled by
the diagnostics mechanisms of the IE Switch (LEDs, WEB-based management, SNMP, CLI
and PROFINET diagnostics).
Inserting in the C-PLUG slot
The slot for the C-PLUG is located on the back of the device.
To insert the C-PLUG, remove the screw cover. The C-PLUG is inserted in the receptacle.
The screw cover must then be closed correctly.
Removing the C-PLUG
It is only necessary to remove the C-PLUG if the IE Switch develops a fault.
The C-PLUG can be removed from the slot using flat pliers, tweezers, or a small screwdriver.

Warning
Commissioning devices and replacement devices
If you use redundancy mechanisms (HSR ring redundancy and/or redundant coupling of
rings over standby), open the redundant path before you insert a new or replacement device
in an operating network. A bad configuration or attachment of the Ethernet cables to
incorrectly configured ports causes overload in the network and a breakdown in
communication.
A device may only be inserted in a network and connected when:
• HSR:
The ring ports of the device being inserted in the HSR ring were actually configured as
ring ports and "Ring redundancy enabled" was set. (Refer to the "Configuration manual
SCALANCE X-300 X-400, section X-300 Ring Configuration"). If the device is intended to
operate as the redundancy manager, "Redundancy manager enabled" must also be set.
(Refer to the "Configuration manual SCALANCE X-300 X-400, section X-300 Ring
Configuration").
• Standby coupling:
The standby connection must be "enabled" and the "Standby connection name" must
match the name of the partner device. You must also select the port in "Enable standby
port monitoring". (Refer to the "Configuration manual SCALANCE X-300 X-400, section
X-300 Standby Mask").
4.1
Power supply
Power supply
The power supply is connected using a 4-pin plug-in terminal block.
The power supply can be connected redundantly. Both inputs are isolated. There is no
distribution of load. When a redundant power supply is used, the power supply unit with the
higher output voltage supplies the IE Switch X-300 alone. The power supply is connected
over a high resistance with the enclosure to allow an ungrounded set up. The two power
inputs are non-floating.

Warning
The IE Switch X-300 is designed for operation with safety extra-low voltage (SELV). This
means that only safety extra-low voltages (SELV) complying with IEC950/EN60950/
VDE0805 can be connected to the power supply terminals.
The power supply unit for the IE Switch X-300 power supply must meet NEC Class 2, as
described by the National Electrical Code(r) (ANSI/NFPA 70).
The power of all connected power supply units must total the equivalent of a power source
with limited power (LPS limited power source).
If the device is connected to a redundant power supply (two separate power supplies), both
must meet these requirements.
The signaling contact can be subjected to a maximum load of 100 mA (safety extra-low
voltage (SELV), 24 V DC).
Never operate the device with AC voltage or DC voltage higher than 32 V DC.
Caution
If IE Switches X-300 are supplied over long 24 V power supply lines or networks, measures
are necessary to prevent interference by strong electromagnetic pulses on the supply lines.
These can result, for example, due to lightning or switching of large inductive loads.
One of the tests used to attest the immunity of devices of the IE Switches X-300 to
electromagnetic interference was the "surge immunity test" according to EN61000-4-5. This
test requires overvoltage protection for the power supply lines. A suitable device is, for
example, the Dehn Blitzductor VT AD 24 V type no. 918 402 or comparable protective
element.

The signaling by the signaling contact is synchronized with the fault LED, in other words, all
errors displayed by this LED (freely configurable) are also signaled on the signaling contact.
If an internal fault occurs, the fault LED lights up and the signaling contact opens.
The connection or disconnection of a communication node on an unmonitored port does not
lead to an error message.
The signaling contact remains activated until the error/fault is eliminated or until the current
status is entered in the fault mask as the new desired status.

SELECT / SET button
The SELECT / SET button is used to switch over the display modes (DMode) and to make
other settings. After turning on the IE Switch X-300, it is in DMode A.
The button has the following functions:
• Changing the display modes
By pressing the button briefly, you change from one display mode to the next. The
selected mode or current status is displayed by the LED (DM).
• Resetting to the factory defaults
It is possible to restore the factory defaults in DMode A. by pressing the button for 12
seconds. You can cancel the reset procedure by releasing the button before the 12
seconds have elapsed. All previously made settings are overwritten by the factory
defaults.
• Defining the fault mask and the LED displays
It is possible to set the fault mask in DMode A and DMode D. This allows you to specify
the mask for signaling faults by defining an individual "good status“ for the connected
ports and the power supplies. In this case, you press the button for 5 seconds in DMode
A or DMode D. After 3 seconds, the LED (DM) begins to flash. You can cancel the
procedure by releasing the button before the 5 seconds have elapsed. If, however, you
press the button for a further 2 seconds, the current states of all ports and the states of
the power supplies L1 and L2 are included in the fault mask. The previous fault mask is
then overwritten.
• Activating/deactivating the redundancy manager
It is only possible to activate/deactivate the RM in DMode B. by pressing the button for 5
seconds. After 3 seconds, the LED (DM) begins to flash. If you release the button before
the 5 seconds have elapsed, the action is aborted. After 5 seconds the redundancy
manager is activated/deactivated. If the redundancy manager as well as ring redundancy
were deactivated, ring redundancy is also activated at the same time. If you deactivate,
only the redundancy manager is deactivated.

Localizing an IE Switches X-300
To identify an IE Switch X-300 locally and with certainty, you can use the "show location"
function on a programming device to select the node over the network and make it flash.
This can be used, for example, when assigning addresses to make sure that the correct
node receives the address. All port LEDs of the addressed node flash green at 2 Hz.
With the PST Tool V3.0 or higher, you can trigger this function with "Module \ Flash".

Note
The following applies to IE Switches X-300
The number of IE Switches X-300 connected in a line influences the frame propagation time.
When a frame passes through an IE Switch X-300, it is delayed by the Store&Forward
function of the IE Switch X-300
• with a 64 byte frame length by approx. 10 microseconds (at 100 Mbps)
• with a 1500 byte frame length by approx. 130 microseconds (at 100 Mbps)
This means that the more IE Switch X-300 devices the frame passes through, the longer the
frame delay.

A.1 TP port
Notice
TP cords or TP-XP cords with a maximum length of 10 m can be connected to the RJ-45 TP
port.
With the IE FC cables and IE FC RJ-45 plug, an overall cable length of up to 100 m is
permitted between two devices depending on the cable type.
Autonegotiation
Autonegotiation means the automatic detection of the functionality of the port at the opposite
end. Using autonegotiation, network components or end devices can detect the functionality
available at the port of a partner device allowing automatic configuration of different types of
device. With autonegotiation, two components connected to a link segment can exchange
parameters and set themselves to match the supported communication functionality.
Note
With devices that do not support autonegotiation, the IE Switch X-300 port must be set
manually to the speed and duplexity settings of the device (in other words, the identical
setting).
Note
The IE Switch X-300 is a plug-and-play device that does not require settings to be made for
commissioning.

Operating Instructions, 01, A5E01113043
Appendix A
A.1 TP port
MDI /MDIX autocrossover function
The advantage of the MDI /MDIX autocrossover function is that straight-through cables can
be used throughout and crossover Ethernet cables are unnecessary. This prevents
malfunctions resulting from mismatching send and receive wires. This makes installation
much easier for the user.
The IE Switches X-300 all support the MDI / MDIX autocrossover function.
Note
Autocrossover works only in autonegotiation is enabled. If the setting is fixed, there is no
autocrossover (see Glossary).
Notice
Please note that a direct connection between two ports on the IE Switch X-300 or an
accidental connection over several IE Switches X-300 can cause illegal formation of loops
unless RSTP or STP is activated. Such a loop can lead to network overload and network
failures.
SCALANCE X-300
Operating Instructions, 01, A5E01113043
61
Glossary
Aging time
The aging time is the time after which a learned MAC address is discarded if an IE Switch X300 has not received frames with this sender address during this time.
Autocrossover
Technique with which a TP port is automatically switched over between MDI and MDIX
assignment to make a connection independent of the port assignment of the device being
attached. This means that crossover cables are not required. The autocrossover function
can only be used when the port is set to autonegotiation mode.
Autonegotiation
Procedure standardized by IEEE 802.3 in which the transmission parameters (for example
10/100 Mbps, full/half duplex) are negotiated automatically between the devices.
BOOTP
A protocol for automatic assignment of IP addresses. The IP addresses are provided by a
BOOTP server.
CLI
Command Line Interpreter. Terminal-based configuration option for the IE Switch X-300.
With TELNET, the CLI can be used over every Ethernet port.
Collision domain
To ensure that the CSMA/CD protocol functions correctly, the propagation time of a data
packet from one node to another is restricted. This propagation time results in a spatially
limited span for the network depending on the data rate known as the collision domain.
Connection monitoring
With regular link test pulses, IE Switch X-300 monitors the connected TP and FO cable
segments for short-circuits or interruptions. The IE Switch X-300 does not send data to a
segment from which it is not receiving link test pulses.
SCALANCE X-300
Operating Instructions, 01, A5E01113043
63
Glossary
C-PLUG
The C-PLUG (configuration plug) is an exchangeable memory medium of storing the
configuration data. If the device is replaced, the configuration can be adopted by swapping
the C-PLUG.
CRC
Cyclic Redundancy Check. A checksum used in transmission protocols to detect errors in
frames.
Cut Through
With this technique, a frame is forwarded as soon as the destination address is recognized.
The delay is therefore not dependent on the frame length.
Default gateway
A network node that forwards all frames not addressed to stations in the same LAN (subnet).
DHCP
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), like BOOTP, a method for automatic
assignment of IP addresses. With DHCP, however, addresses can be assigned while the
device is operating.
Dispersion
Broadening and distortion of light pulses in fiber-optic cable due to signals arriving at
different times. On multimode FOC, the distortion of the output signal is greater than with
single mode FOC.
Display mode (DMode)
Display mode that indicates various statuses (port status, power monitoring activated etc.).
The modes can be switched over using a button on the IE Switch X-300.
ESM
Electrical Switching Module – SIMATIC NET Ethernet switch with electrical ports.
Event
For Alarms & Events: An event is anything that happens that could be of interest to a client.
Although events can also be generated when a condition is met, they are not necessarily
dependent on conditions. Events that are not linked to conditions include, for example, error
messages of the communication system.

Glossary
Fault mask
Specifies the desired status (good status). Deviations from this occurring during operation
are handled as faults.
FO port
Fiber Optic port
Full duplex
Two-way simultaneous - both communication partners can send and receive at the same
time.
Half duplex
Two-way alternate transmission mode- it is only possible to either send or receive over the
interfaces at any one time.
Latency
Latency specifies the time taken by frames to pass through an IE Switch X-300. This does
not include the time required for buffering frames.
Load containment
With its filtering functions, a switch makes sure that local data traffic remains local. The local
network load of a segment is contained in the originating segment and does not represent
extra load on the remainder of the network.
MDI
Medium Dependent Interface, - straight.
On a MDI port or a MDI cable, the receive (Rx) and
transmit (Tx) cables are not crossed over.
MDI-X
Medium Dependent Interface – crossover.
On an MDI-X port or MDI-X cable, the receive (Rx) and
the send (Tx) lines are crossed over.
MIB
Management Information Base. The MIB is a formal description of network objects in the
form of a tree structure that contains all the relevant information for network management in

Mirroring
A port (mirror port) with its specific data traffic can be mirrored to another port (monitor port)
for test purposes. Protocol analysis devices can be connected to the monitor port, in other
words, the monitor port is not available for data exchange. Mirroring has no effect on the
mirror port.
Modes
Modes are discrete waves used to transmit data within a fiber-optic cable. With single mode
fibers, only one wave propagates, whereas in multimode fibers several waves propagate.
Modes are patterns of electromagnetic fields in FOCs.
Multicast
A frame with a multicast address is received by all nodes prepared to receive this address.
Multimode
In multimode transmission, the pulse is transferred using many modes (waves) that travel
along curved paths or are reflected within the core. Attenuation is mainly caused by physical
absorption and dispersion as well as by mechanical bending. The amount of attenuation
depends among other things on the wavelength of the input light. Multimode fiber-optic
cables have an outer diameter of 125 µm and 50 or 62.5 µm core diameter. Due to the larger
core diameter the pulse edges degrade more than in single mode transmission resulting in
shorter transmission distances.
OSM
Optical Switching Module – SIMATIC NET Ethernet switch with optical ports.
Passive listening
Support of Rapid Spanning Tree Topology Change frames. When an RSTP topology change
frame is received, the MAC address table is deleted.
PCF
Polymer Cladded Fiber
Optical fiber that can be assembled in the field and whose core is made of glass and jacket
made of plastic.
POF
Plastic Optical Fiber
Optical fiber that can be assembled in the field and whose core and jacket are made of
plastic.

Rapid Spanning Tree
The Rapid Spanning Tree protocol (RSTP) allows redundant transmission paths. This
prevents circulating frames and, if a fault develops, provides an alternative path within
seconds (reconfiguration time).
Reconfiguration time
The time required to restore a functional configuration if a device fails or a network cable is
interrupted.
Redundancy manager (RM)
IE Switch X-300 in a ring topology that does not forward any frames between its ring ports if
there are functioning connections between all other switches. As soon as a connection
between two switches is interrupted, the redundancy manager forwards frames between its
ring ports and so restores an intact connection between all switches.
Ring port
Two ports on an IE Switch X-300 via which it is connected to other switches to form a ring.
One IE Switch X-300 must be configured as the redundancy manager in the ring. This sends
test frames via the ring ports that are forwarded by all the ring ports of the other switches in
the ring. This makes sure that the ring does not have any interruptions.
RMON
Remote Monitoring. RMON-compliant devices allow diagnostic data to be collected on the
device and read out by a network management station. This means that network problems
are detected early and can be eliminated. The particular advantage of RMON is that it is
independent of location. The acquired data can be analyzed at any point in the network with
suitable reporting software.
Segment
In the Ethernet bus system, transceivers connected together over the bus cable along with
the nodes connected over patch cables form a segment. Several such segments can be
connected via repeaters. When using twisted pair and fiber-optic cables, each subsection
forms a segment.
Signaling contact
Floating relay contact via which the detected error states can be signaled.
Single mode
In single mode transmission, (and monomode transmission) the pulse is transmitted by a
straight mode (wave). Attenuation is mainly caused by physical absorption and dispersion as
well as by mechanical bending. The amount of attenuation depends, among other things, on
the wavelength of the input light. The single mode fiber typically has a core diameter of 5 to 9
µm. The outer diameter is, however, once again 125 µm (compare multimode). The smaller

core diameter degrades the pulse edges less than multimode transmission and allows
greater transmission distances.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol. Standardized protocol for transporting network
management information.
Spanning Tree
The Spanning Tree protocol (STP) allows redundant transmission paths. This prevents
circulating frames and, if a fault develops, provides an alternative path within 20 - 30
seconds (reconfiguration time).
Store and forward
In this switching technique, the entire frame is read in, before it is forwarded by the
IE Switch X-300. A packet is only passed on if it is error-free.
TELNET
With this protocol, an interactive connection can be established to another device in the LAN
or on the Internet. The user then has the same options as when directly connected to this
device with a terminal.
TFTP
Trivial File Transfer Protocol. A simple, UDP-based protocol for data transfer. Due to its
limited size, it can also be used by network nodes with little ROM.
TP port
Port with a TP connector (RJ-45 jack)
VLAN
Virtual LAN within a physically existing network.
WBM
Web Based Management. With WBM, configuration and diagnostics are handled with an
Internet browser. Entries made by the user are sent to the IE Switch X-300 using the HTTP
protocol and the IE Switch X-300 transfers its replies by HTTP to the user.
