How To Use This Guide
Each chapter of this guide contains information on how to successfully operate your
Extreme Networks switch. The Summit-, Alpine-, and BlackDiamond-specific chapters
contain information that is applicable to that family of switch only. All other chapters
are applicable to any Extreme Networks switch. For switch-specific information, be sure
to read the applicable switch-specific chapter. For example, if you have a BlackDiamond
switch and you need to remove and replace an I/O module, see “Removing I/O
Modules” in Chapter 16 for details about how to remove and replace an I/O module in
a BlackDiamond chassis. For an issue that is applicable to any Extreme Networks
switch, make sure you read the appropriate chapter. For example, after your switch is
properly installed, powered on and passes its initial power-on self test (POST), you
need to log in to the switch for the first time. See “Logging In for the First Time” in
Chapter 18 for details about how to log in to the switch for the first time.
The appendices describe switch safety issues and switch specifications. The Safety
Information appendix describes important safety issues such as power, power cords,
and fuses. The Technical Specifications appendix is organized according to the family of
switch: Summit, Alpine, and BlackDiamond, and describes switch specifications such as
physical dimensions, weight, certifications, and power supply parameters. Information
that is common to all switches is described at the end of the appendix.

Full-Duplex Support
Extreme Networks switches provide full-duplex support for all ports. This means that
frames can be transmitted and received simultaneously, which, in effect, doubles the
bandwidth available that is available on a link. Most ports on an Extreme Networks
switch autonegotiate for half-duplex or full-duplex operation. Gigabit Ethernet and
100BASE-FX ports operate in full-duplex mode only in accordance with technical
standards.
Management Ports
The 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet management port allows you to communicate directly to
the CPU of the switch. You can plug an Ethernet cable directly from your laptop into
the management port. This provides you with direct access into the switch and allows
you to view and locally manage the switch configurations.
The management port is located on the following Extreme Networks devices:
• Summit5i—The management port is located on the back side of the switch
• Summit7i —The management port is located on the front side of the switch
• Alpine—Switch Management Module (SMMi) for the Alpine series switch
• BlackDiamond—Management Switch Fabric Module (MSM64i) for the
BlackDiamond series switch

Mini-GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
It is possible, but not recommended, to route traffic from the management port to any
front panel port on the switch. The management port is designed for switch
management purposes.
Mini-GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
The Summit24e3 and Summit48si switches support the small form pluggable SFP GBIC,
also known as the mini-GBIC. The switch uses identifier bits to determine the media
type of the mini-GBIC that is installed.
Mini-GBIC Type and Specifications
There are two types of mini-GBIC interfaces:
• SX mini-GBIC, which conforms to the 1000BASE-SX standard
• LX mini-GBIC, which conforms to the 1000BASE-LX standard
Use only Extreme Networks-certified mini-GBICs, available from Extreme Networks,
into the mini-GBIC port in the switch.
Table 1-2 describes the specifications for the SX mini-GBIC interface, and Table 1-3
describes the specifications for the LX mini-GBIC interface.

General
Total system budget
13.5 dBm
Total optical system budget for the LX mini-GBIC is 13.5 dBm. Measure cable plant
losses with a 1310 nm light source and verify this to be within budget. When calculating
the maximum distance attainable using optical cable with a specified loss per kilometer
(for example 0.25 dB/km) Extreme Networks recommends that 3 dBm of the total
budget be reserved for losses induced by cable splices/connectors and operating
margin. Thus, 10.5 dBm remains available for cable induced attenuation. There is no
minimum system budget or minimum cable length restriction because the maximum
receive power is the same as the maximum transmit power. There is no minimum
attenuation or minimum cable length restriction.
Safety Information
Before you begin the process of installing or replacing a mini-GBIC, read the safety
information in this section.
Caution: Mini-GBICs can emit invisible laser radiation. Avoid direct eye exposure
to beam.
Mini-GBICs are class 1 laser devices. Use only Extreme-approved devices.

Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Mini-GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
Note: If you see an amber blinking mini-GBIC port status LED after you install a
mini-GBIC into the Summit24e3 or Summit48si switch, this means the mini-GBIC
is not certified by Extreme Networks. To correct this problem, install an Extreme
Networks certified mini-GBIC, available from Extreme Networks, into the port in
the switch.
Preparing to Install or Replace a Mini-GBIC
To ensure proper installation, complete the following tasks before inserting the
mini-GBIC:
• Disable the port that is needed to install or replace the mini-GBIC.
• Inspect and clean the fiber tips, coupler, and connectors.
• Prepare and clean an external attenuator, if needed.
• Do not stretch the fiber.
• Make sure the bend radius of the fiber is not less than 2 inches (5.08 cm).
When installing or replacing mini-GBICs on an active network, use the same type of
mini-GBIC at each end of the link.
Once you complete all of these tasks, you are ready to install or replace a mini-GBIC.
Installing and Removing a Mini-GBIC
You can add and remove mini-GBICs from your Summit24e3 switch without powering
off the system. Figure 1-1 shows the mini-GBIC connector.

GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
Most Extreme Networks switches support two types of GBICs: the Parallel ID GBIC and
the Serial ID GBIC. The switch uses identifier bits to determine the media type for the
GBIC that is installed. Initial ExtremeWare software versions do not support Serial ID
GBICs. If Serial ID GBICs are installed in a switch with an initial software release, the
switch will not bring up the link on GBIC ports.

Measure cable plant losses with a 1550 nm light source and verify this to be within
budget. When calculating the maximum distance attainable using optical cable with a
specified loss per kilometer (for example 0.25 dB/km), Extreme Networks recommends
that 3 dB of the total budget be reserved for losses induced by cable splices/connectors
and operating margin. Thus, 18 dB remains available for cable induced attenuation.
A minimum attenuation of 3 dB is required to prevent saturation of the receiver.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide

Summary of Common Switch Features
If a ZX GBIC is used on the same link with an LX70 GBIC, the available link budget is
reduced to a total of 18 dB. Additionally, a minimum attenuation of 6 dB is required to
ensure correct operation of the ZX GBIC receiver.

*The transmitter output power level for the 1000BASE-LX70 is +4 dBm. The maximum allowable receiver input power level is
-3 dBm. Therefore, there is a minimum of 7 dB loss required for the link to operate without errors. This minimum required loss
can be achieved using a fiber length of 32 km (0.25 dB/km provides 8 dB loss), or by adding 10 dB of fixed optical attenuator
at the receiver end.
Determining Budget and Distance Calculations
When calculating the distance that is attainable by using optical cable with a specified
loss per kilometer, Extreme Networks recommends that 3 dB of the total budget be
reserved for losses that are induced by cable splices, cable connectors, and operating
margin. These are referred to as loss penalties.
To determine the required link budget for a specific distance of fiber, use the following
formula:
Required Link Budget LB = [(Distance d) * (Fiber Attn)] + all other Loss Penalties
• Distance is the distance between the links
• Fiber attenuation is the fiber or cable attenuation
• loss penalties are the amounts reserved for losses that are induced by cable splices,
cable connectors, and operating margin.
The following example determines a required link budget of 9 dB where the following
is true:
1-10
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
• Distance is 20 km
• Fiber attenuation is 0.30 dB/km
• Loss penalties are 3 dB
Required Link Budget LB = (20 km * 0.30 dB/km) + 3 dB = 9 dB
When calculating the supported link distance, if the link distance is less than the
minimum length supported, external attenuators may be needed. To determine the
supported link distance, use the following formula:
Link distance supported = (system budget - loss penalties) / fiber attenuation
For example, Table 1-10 and Table 1-11 use the supported link distance formula to
determine the maximum link distances for two different GBICs: the ZX GBIC and the
LX70 GBIC.

Installing or Replacing a GBIC
This section describes the preparation steps that you must perform before inserting and
securing a GBIC.
Caution: GBICs can emit invisible laser radiation. Avoid direct eye exposure to
beam.
To ensure proper installation, complete the following tasks before inserting the GBIC:
• Inspect and clean the fiber tips, coupler, and connectors.
• Prepare and clean an external attenuator, if needed.
• Calculate the link budget.
• Do not stretch the fiber.
• Make sure the bend radius of the fiber is not less than 2 inches.
In addition to the previously described tasks, Extreme Networks recommends the
following when installing or replacing GBICs on an active network:
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
1-13
Summary of Common Switch Features
• Use the same type of GBIC at each end of the link.
• Connect one end of the link to the Tx port. Without an attenuator, measure the total
loss from the Tx port to the other site of the link. For example, the total loss must
not exceed the total budget listed in Table 1-10 for a ZX GBIC or Table 1-11 for an
LX70 GBIC.
• Use dispersion shifted fiber whenever possible. This provides superior performance
in the 1550 nm range.
Once you complete all of these described tasks, you are ready to install or replace a
GBIC.
You can add and remove GBICs from your Extreme Networks switch without powering
off the system. Figure 1-4 shows the two types of GBIC connectors.

Wiring Closet Considerations
You should consider the following recommendations for your wiring closet:
• Ensure that your system is easily accessible for installation and service. See “Rack
Specifications and Recommendations” on page 2-12 for specific recommendations.
• Use AC power, 15-amp service receptacles, type N5/15 or NEMA 5-15R for 120 VAC.
• Use 30 A at -40 VDC (or equivalent power between -40 and -70 VDC) for Alpine DC
power supplies. For Alpine DC power and ground cables, use 8 AWG,
high-strand-count wire cable (Alpine 3808) or 10 AWG, high-strand-count wire cable
(Alpine 3804).
• Use AC power, 20 A service receptacle, NEMA L5-20R for BlackDiamond 110 VAC
power supplies.
• Use AC power, 20 A service receptacle, NEMA L6-20R for BlackDiamond 220 VAC
power supplies.
• Use 55 A service for BlackDiamond DC power supplies. For BlackDiamond DC
power cables, use 4 AWG, high-strand-count wire cable.
• Use a vinyl floor covering in your wiring closet. (Concrete floors accumulate dust,
and carpets can cause static electricity.)
• Prevent unauthorized access to wiring closets by providing door locks.
• Provide adequate overhead lighting for easy maintenance.
• Ensure that each wiring closet has a suitable ground. All distribution racks and
equipment installed in the closet should be grounded.
• Ensure that all system environmental requirements are met, such as ambient
temperature and humidity.
Note: Extreme Networks recommends that you consult an electrical contractor
for commercial building and wiring specifications.
Temperature. Extreme Networks equipment generates a significant amount of heat. It
is essential that you provide a temperature-controlled environment for both
performance and safety.
The following are some general thermal recommendations for your wiring closet:
• Ensure that the ventilation in the wiring closet is adequate to maintain a temperature
below 104° F (40° C).
• Install a reliable air conditioning and ventilation system.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
2-5
Site Preparation
• Keep the ventilation in the wiring closet running during nonbusiness hours;
otherwise, the equipment can overheat.
• Maintain ambient operating temperature: 32° to 104° F (0° to 40° C)
• Maintain storage Temperature: -40° to 158° F (-40° to 70° C)
Note: Like all electrical equipment, product lifetimes degrade with increased
temperature. If possible, temperatures should be kept at approximately 78° F
(25° C) or lower.
BlackDiamond 6816 Spacing Requirements. Due to chassis-to-chassis heating,
Extreme Networks recommends placing no more than three BlackDiamond 6816 chassis
next to each other.
The following are some general recommendations for installing your BlackDiamond
6816 chassis:
• A minimum of 17.32 inches (44 cm) between each set of three BlackDiamond 6816
chassis.
Or
• Place front-back cooled equipment, such as a BlackDiamond 6808 chassis, between
each set of three BlackDiamond 6816 chassis.
Or
• Place patch panels, which are used to patch cables together, between each set of
three BlackDiamond 6816 chassis. A patch panel does not require any power and
does not generate any heat.
Note: Up to five adjacent BlackDiamond 6816 chassis will continue to function
without safety concerns. However, product lifetime may degrade with continued
exposure to high temperatures in close proximity and long term reliability may be
compromised.
Air flow Requirements. To ensure proper air flow through an Extreme Networks
switch, refer to the following recommendations when you are installing your switch:
• The Summit family of switches require 3 inches (7.62 cm) on both the left and right
sides of the switch (5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper air flow.
• The Alpine 3800 series chassis require 3 inches (7.62 cm) on both the left and right
sides of the switch (5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper air flow.
2-6
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Meeting Site Requirements
• The BlackDiamond 6816 and 6804 chassis require 3 inches (7.62 cm) around the
entire chassis—front, rear, and sides—(5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper
air flow.
• The BlackDiamond 6808 chassis requires 3 inches (7.62 cm) around both the front
and rear of the chassis (5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper air flow.
The air flow of the Summit family of switches moves from the left side of the switch to
the right side of the switch or from the right side of the switch to the left side of the
switch depending on the model.
The air flow of the Alpine 3808 moves through the power supplies and is independent
of the air flow through the chassis as shown in Figure 2-1. For example, if the power
supply fans fail, the air flow through the module area of the chassis will not cool down
the power supplies.
• Air flow for cooling power supplies enters the top of the chassis and moves left to
right as you face the chassis.
• Air flow for cooling modules moves left to right as you face the chassis.

Rack Specifications and Recommendations
Racks should conform to conventional standards. In the United States, refer to EIA
Standard RS-310C: Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment. In countries other than
the United States, refer to IEC Standard 297. In addition, verify that your rack meets the
basic mechanical and space requirements that are described in this section.
Mechanical Recommendations for the Rack
Use distribution racks that meet the following mechanical recommendations:
• Use an open style, 19-inch (48.26-cm) rack to facilitate easy maintenance and to
provide proper ventilation.
• The rack should use the universal mounting rail hole pattern that is identified in IEC
Standard 297.
• The mounting holes should be flush with the rails to accommodate the chassis.
• Use a rack made of steel or aluminum.
• Install equipment into the lower half of the rack first to avoid making the rack
top-heavy.
• The rack should support approximately 600 pounds (272 kilograms).
Protective Grounding for the Rack
Use a rack grounding kit and a ground conductor that is carried back to earth or to
another suitable building ground.
All Extreme Networks switches are designed with mounting brackets that provide solid
metal-to-metal connection to the rack. If you do not use equipment racks, you can
attach wiring terminals directly to the mounting brackets for appropriate grounding.
Alpine products have grounding terminals that are mounted on the back of the chassis.
At minimum, follow these guidelines:
• Ground equipment racks to earth ground.
— CAD weld appropriate wire terminals to building I-beams or earth ground rods.
— Use #4 copper wire.
— Drill and tap wire terminals to equipment racks.
2-12
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Meeting Site Requirements
— Position the earth ground as close to the equipment rack as possible to maintain
the shortest wiring distance possible.
— Properly test the quality of the earth ground.
Note: Because building codes vary world-wide, Extreme Networks strongly
recommends that you consult an electrical contractor to ensure proper
equipment grounding is in place for your specific installation.
• Ground DC power supplies to earth ground by using the grounding terminals
provided.
Space Requirements for the Rack
Provide enough space in front of and behind the switch so that you can service it easily.
Allow a minimum of 4 feet (121.92 cm) in front of the rack and 2 feet (60.96 cm) behind
the rack. When using a relay rack, provide a minimum of 2 feet (60.96 cm) of space
behind the mounted equipment. Extra room on each side is optional.
Note: Install your equipment rack near an easily accessible power outlet. You
should power down your equipment only by removing the power cord from the
power source.
Securing the Rack
The rack should be attached to the wiring closet floor with 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) lag screws
or equivalent hardware. The floor under the rack should be level within 3/16 inch
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
2-13
Site Preparation
(5 mm). Use a floor-leveling cement compound if necessary or bolt the racks to the floor
as shown in Figure 2-7.
Secure to floor

Evaluating and Meeting Cable Requirements
This section addresses requirements for the that cable you should use when installing
your network equipment. It includes:
• Cabling Standards
• Cable Labeling and Record Keeping
• Installing Cable
• RJ-45 Connector Jackets
• Radio Frequency Interference
2-14
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Evaluating and Meeting Cable Requirements
Cabling Standards
We recommend using the BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Service International)
RCDD (Registered Communications Distribution Designer), which is globally
recognized as a standard in site planning and cabling. For information, go to
http://www.bicsi.org
Cable Labeling and Record Keeping
A reliable cable labeling system is essential when planning and installing a network.
Maintaining accurate records helps you to:
• Relocate devices easily.
• Make changes quickly.
• Isolate faults in the distribution system.
• Locate the opposite end of any cable.
• Know the types of network devices that your cabling infrastructure can support.
Consider the following recommendations when setting up a cable labeling system
suitable for your installation:
• Identify cables by securely attaching a label to all cable ends.
• Assign a unique block of sequential numbers to the group of cables that run between
each pair of wiring closets.
• Assign a unique identification number to each distribution rack.
• Identify all wiring closets by labeling the front panel of your Extreme Networks
equipment and other hardware.
• Keep accurate and current cable identification records.
• Post records near each distribution rack. Include the following cable drop
information: the cable source, destination, and jumper location.
Installing Cable
Consider the following recommendations when you connect cable to your network
equipment:
• Examine cable for cuts, bends, and nicks.
• Support cable using a cable manager that is mounted above connectors to avoid
unnecessary weight on the cable bundles.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
2-15
Site Preparation
• Use cable managers to route cable bundles to the left and right of the network
equipment to maximize accessibility to the connectors.
• Provide enough slack—approximately 2-3 inches (5.08-7.62 cm)— to provide proper
strain relief as shown in Figure 2-8.
• Bundle cable using velcro straps to avoid injuring cables.
• If you build your own cable, ensure that cable is properly crimped.
• When installing a patch panel using twisted pair wiring, untwist no more than 1” of
the cable to avoid RF interference.
• When required for safety and fire rating requirements, use plenum-rated cable. See
your local building codes for determining when it is appropriate to use
plenum-rated cable, or refer to IEC standard 850.
• Keep all ports and connectors free of dust.
Note: Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable can build up ESD charges when
being pulled into a new installation. Before installing category 5 UTP cables,
discharge ESD from the cable by plugging it into a port on a switch or any
network device that is not powered on.

Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cable must be treated gently during installation. Every cable has a minimum
bend radius, for example, and fibers will be damaged if the cables are bent too sharply.
It is also important not to stretch the cable during installation. We recommend that the
bend radius for fiber optic cable equals 2-inch (5.08 cm) minimum for each 90 degree
turn as shown in Figure 2-9.

Evaluating and Meeting Cable Requirements
Radio Frequency Interference
If you use unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling in an installation, take precautions to
avoid radio frequency (RF) interference. RF interference can cause degradation of signal
quality, and, in an Ethernet network environment, can cause excessive collisions, loss of
link status, or other physical layer problems that can lead to poor performance or loss
of communication.
To prevent RF interference, avoid the following devices or situations:
• Attaching UTP cable to AC power cords
• Routing UTP cable near antennas, such as a Ham radio antenna
• Routing UTP cable near equipment that could exhibit RF interference, such as:
— ARC welding equipment
— Electrical motors that contain coils
— Air conditioner units
— Electrical transformers
In areas or applications where these situations cannot be avoided, use fiber optic
cabling or shielded twisted pair cabling (STP).
Note: Because harmonics can appear on the neutral line of a typical three-phase
power circuit, Extreme Networks recommends using a harmonics meter in new
installations.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide

Meeting Power Requirements
This section discusses power requirements, including:
• Power Supply Requirements
• AC Power Cord Requirements
• Uninterruptable Power Supply Requirements
Power Supply Requirements
Adhere to the following requirements in order to operate your Extreme Networks
equipment safely:
• Ensure that your equipment is placed in an area that accommodates the power
consumption and component heat dissipation specifications.
• Ensure that your power supply meets the site power, AC power, or DC power
requirements of the network equipment.
• Ensure that DC connections are made by an on-site electrician.
Note: For power specifications for Extreme Networks products, see the Extreme
Networks website at http://www.extremenetworks.com.
• When connecting power to installed equipment, avoid connecting through an
extension cord or power strip.
• If your switch includes more than one power supply, connect each power supply to
different, independent power sources. If a power source fails, it will only affect the
switch power supply to which it is connected. If all switch power supplies are
connected to a single power source, the entire switch is vulnerable to a power source
failure.
2-22

A UPS traditionally can perform the following functions:
• Absorb relatively small power surges.
• Smooth out noisy power sources.
• Continue to provide power to equipment during line sags.
• Provide power for some time after a blackout has occurred.
In addition, some UPS or UPS plus software combinations provide the following
functions:
• Automatic shutdown of equipment during long power outages.
• Monitoring and logging of power supply status.
• Display the voltage (current draw) of the equipment.
• Restart equipment after a long power outage.
• Display the voltage currently on the line.
• Provide alarms on certain error conditions.
• Provide short circuit protection.
Selecting a UPS
To determine UPS requirements for your switch, ask these questions:
• What are the amperage requirements?
• What is the longest potential time period that the UPS would be required to supply
backup power?
• Where will the UPS be installed?
• What is the maximum transition time that your installation will allow?
Extreme Networks recommends that you use a UPS that provides online
protection.
Calculating Amperage Requirements
To determine the size of UPS that you need, use the following procedure:
2-24
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Applicable Industry Standards
1 To find VA (Volt-Amps), locate the voltage and amperage requirements for each
piece of equipment. These numbers are usually located on a sticker on the back or
bottom of your equipment. Then multiply the numbers together to get VA:
VA = Volts x Amperes
2 Add the VA from each piece of equipment together to find the total VA requirement.
To determine the minimum amperage requirements for your UPS, we recommend
that you add 30% to the total.
UPS Transition Time
Transition time is the time that is necessary for the UPS to transfer from utility power to
full-load battery power. For Extreme Networks products, a transition time of less than
20 milliseconds is required for optimum performance.
Applicable Industry Standards
For more information, see the following ANSI/TIA/EIA standards:
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A—discusses the six subsystems of a structured cabling system.
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-569-A—discusses design considerations.
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-606—discusses cabling system administration.
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-607—discusses commercial building grounding and bonding
requirements.

Memory Requirements
Your “i” series Summit switch must have 32 MB of DRAM in order to support the
features in ExtremeWare version 4.0 and above. This is not a requirement for Summit24
and Summit48 switch models, and all currently shipping switches contain 32 MB. Some
3-4
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Memory Requirements
earlier models of the Summit switch shipped with 16 MB, and must be upgraded to
support ExtremeWare version 4.0 and above.
To determine the memory size in your switch, use the following command:
show memory
For Summit switches running ExtremeWare 4.0 or later, the switch indicates the total
DRAM size in megabytes as part of the output. For Summit switches running
ExtremeWare releases prior to 4.0, you must calculate the memory by taking the sum of
the bytes listed under current free and adding to it the bytes listed under current
alloc. If the sum is greater than 16,000,000, there is no need to upgrade the memory on
the switch. If this is not the case, please contact your supplier.
Port Connections
Summit switches use a combination of the following types of ports:
• 1000BASE-SX ports using 850 nm duplex SC connectors
• 1000BASE-LX ports using 1300 nm duplex SC connectors
• 1000BASE-SX ports using MT-RJ connectors
• 1000BASE-LX ports using MT-RJ connectors
• Modular 1000BASE-SX using Mini-Gigabit Interface Connectors (mini-GBICs)
• Modular 1000BASE-SX and 1000BASE-LX using Gigabit Interface Connectors
(GBICs)
• 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX ports using RJ-45 connectors
• 100BASE-FX ports using 1300 nm duplex SC connectors

Power Supplies
The Summit48si switch supports two hot-insert power supplies, shown in Figure 4-15,
with one power supply preinstalled at the factory. You can remove or install
Summit48si power supplies—one at a time—without interrupting operation, and each
power supply has its own power socket, which allows you to connect independent
power sources for each power supply. One functioning power supply must always be
installed. Two power supplies operate in a load-sharing manner and increase the
reliability of the switch.

Summit Switch Installation
Verifying a Successful Installation
After you supply power to the Summit switch, the switch performs a power-on self test
(POST).
During the POST, all ports are temporarily disabled, the packet LED is off, the power
LED is on, and the MGMT LED flashes. The MGMT LED flashes until the switch
successfully passes the POST.
If the switch passes the POST, the MGMT LED blinks at a slow rate (one blink per
second). If the switch fails the POST, the MGMT LED shows a solid yellow light.
Note: See Chapter 4 for more information about Summit LEDs.

Alpine 3800 Series Switch Chassis
Alpine 3802 Software Enhancements
The Alpine 3802 incorporates software enhancements and new commands to assist you
in troubleshooting switch errors and configuring the switch. This section describes the
added software features.
New Error Messages
If you insert a module into the Alpine 3802 that is not allowed in a particular slot, the
switch logs the error to the syslog. For example, if you insert a GM-WDMi module in
slot 3, the switch logs an error.
New Command
The Alpine 3802 has three modes of switch operation. You can use the configure
switch {auto | extended | standard} command to configure the switch to operate
in a specific mode. By default, the switch operates in auto mode.
The three modes of switch operation are:
• Extended mode—In extended mode, all slots (1, 2, and 3) are enabled. Slot 1
supports all Alpine modules (both I/O and Access modules). Slots 2 and 3 support
only Alpine Access modules.
The Extended Mode LED lights when the switch is in extended mode.
• Standard mode—In standard mode, only slots 1 and 2 are enabled. Slot 3 is disabled.
Slots 1 and 2 support any Alpine module (both I/O and Access modules).
The Standard Mode LED lights when the switch is in standard mode.
• Auto mode—In auto mode, the switch determines if it is in standard or extended
mode depending on the type of modules installed in the chassis or the slot
preconfigurations. If an Alpine I/O module (for example, an FM-32Ti module) is
installed or preconfigured in slot 2, the switch operates in standard mode. If an
Alpine Access module (for example, a WM-4Ti module) is installed or preconfigured
in slots 2 or 3, the switch operates in extended mode.
Updated Commands
Two commands have been updated to reflect Alpine 3802 specific information and
configurations: show switch and show version.
7-10
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Installing the Chassis
Use the show switch command to display the current switch information, including
the mode of switch operation.
Use the show version command to display hardware and software versions currently
running on the switch as well as the riser card serial number (the riser card supports
connection to the I/O slots). Information about the power supplies is not displayed.
Installing the Chassis
The Alpine 3800 series chassis fits in standard 19-inch (48.26-cm) racks. The Alpine 3808

measures 4 U in height.
The Alpine 3808 and Alpine 3804 chassis is shipped empty. For your safety, due to the
increased weight of the chassis after components are installed and to prevent damage to
the equipment, we strongly recommended that you install the power supply and
modules after you mount the empty chassis in a rack.
The Alpine 3802 chassis is shipped with a preinstalled power supply and fan tray. For
your safety, due to the increased weight of the chassis after components are installed
and to prevent damage to the equipment, we strongly recommend that you install the
I/O modules after you mount the chassis in a rack.
Note: Mount the chassis in a rack before installing any switch components.

Power Supplies
This chapter describes:
• Important facts about the Alpine 3800 series power supplies
• Installation and removal procedures for the Alpine 3800 series power supplies
The Alpine 3800 series chassis accommodates two power supplies: AC and DC. If two
power supplies are installed in the switch, both installed power supplies must be of the
same type. The AC power supplies auto-sense for 110 VAC and 220 VAC power. The
DC power supplies require -40 VDC input line voltage. When two power supplies are
present, the power is load-shared between the supplies for enhanced longevity.
The power supplies for the Alpine 3808 are inserted into the front of the chassis. The
power supplies for the Alpine 3804 are inserted into the lower rear of the chassis. The
Alpine 3802 power supply is preinstalled at the factory and is not user-removable.

10 Alpine 3800 Series I/O Modules
This chapter describes:
• Configuration information and specifications for the Alpine 3800 series I/O modules
• Installation and removal procedures for the Alpine 3800 series I/O modules
Configuring I/O Modules
No configuration information is stored on the I/O modules; configuration information
is stored on the SMMi for the Alpine 3808 and 3804 chassis and the integrated Switch
Management Module in the Alpine 3802 chassis.
Note: There is a slight difference in appearance between Alpine Ethernet I/O
modules and Alpine Access I/O modules. Alpine Ethernet I/O modules have a
green stripe along the side of the module. Alpine Access I/O modules have a
silver stripe along the side of the module.
When the Alpine 3800 series switch is powered on, ExtremeWare generates a default
configuration for any slots with I/O modules. The default configuration allows the I/O
module ports to participate in the VLAN named default. The default configuration for
the I/O module is not preserved unless you explicitly save the information to
nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM).
You can configure parameters of the I/O module after it is installed or you can
pre-configure a slot for a certain type of module and configuration. The pre-configured
information is applied to the module after it is inserted. If you pre-configure a slot for a
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide

specific module type, and then insert a different type of module, the module reverts to
its default configuration.

Figure 10-4: GM-WDMi module
The GM-WDMi module has one 4 Gbps port, which supports four full-duplex Gigabit
Ethernet channels. The port transmits over a single mode fiber cable using wavelength
division multiplexing. The port uses an SC-APC simplex connector with a
spring-loaded safety cover. APC connectors are polished at an 8° angle to minimize loss
and reflections over extended transmit distances.
The default configuration of the GM-WDMi module is as follows:
• The port is added to the default VLAN as untagged.
• The port inherits the properties of the default VLAN (protocol type, VLANid, and so
forth).
The GM-WDMi module transmits bi-directionally on the fiber cable and then
multiplexes these wavelengths over the single-mode optical fiber.
The total optical system budget for the GM-WDMi module is 12 dB. Measure cable
plant losses with a 1550 nm light source to verify that your cable plant losses are within
the optical budget. Table 10-1 describes the optical specifications for the GM-WDMi
module.

Figure 10-9: FM-8Vi module
The FM-8Vi module has eight 10 Mbps VDSL ports, using one standard RJ-21 connector,
and eight internal loopback ports for ingress rate-shaping. The FM-8Vi module supports
10BASE-S.
The default configuration of the FM-8Vi module is as follows:
• All ports are added to the default VLAN as untagged.
• All ports inherit the properties of the default VLAN (protocol type, VLANid, and so
forth).
• All ports operate in autonegotation mode.
Connecting the FM-8Vi Module to the Mogul-100
The FM-8Vi uses a single RJ-21 connector for the eight VDSL ports on the module. The
cable connector on the FM-8Vi has a Velcro™ strap to secure the connector on the cable
to the module.
To deliver this VDSL connection to a subscriber, the bundle of twisted pairs that are
contained in the RJ-21 cable must be separated for connection to individual Mogul-100
customer premises equipment. Typically, you connect the cable from the FM-8Vi to a
punch-down block and wire the individual VDSL circuits into RJ-11 jacks for connection
to the Mogul-100s. Use the two center conductors of the RJ-11 connector to connect the
wire pairs.
Your particular installation depends on the physical cabling in your building.
The connector on the FM-8Vi requires a male terminated RJ-21 cable. The FM-8Vi uses
eight of the twenty-five pairs in the cable. Because the RJ-21 standard was established
10-12

for telecommunications, one wire of each pair is designated as the tip side and the other
wire is designated as the ring side.
Table 10-3 lists the pin numbers on the connector, the color code for the wires, and the
associated port number for the wire pair.

Software Requirements
The FM-8Vi module requires that the SMMi has ExtremeWare software version 6.1.5 or
later and BootROM 6.5 or later. For more information about software requirements and
module configuration, see the ExtremeWare Release Notes Software Version 6.1.5w2.01 Rev1.
The FM-8Vi module also requires a connection to the Mogul-100. For more information
about Mogul-100 configuration, see the Mogul-100 Quick Guide.
Configuring the FM-8Vi. The VDSL connection from the FM-8Vi to the Mogul-100 is
automatically established by the hardware on the two devices. There are no commands
to configure this VDSL connection.
However, the VDSL ports on the FM-8Vi connect to the Mogul-100 in such a way that
the Ethernet port on the Mogul-100 behaves as though it is located on the Alpine
switch. When you configure a port on the FM-8Vi, you are configuring the Ethernet port
on the Mogul-100. For example, when you add port 2 on the FM-8Vi to a VLAN, the
Ethernet port on the Mogul-100 connected to port 2 of the FM-8Vi now belongs to that
VLAN.
The ports on the Mogul-100 that are controlled by the FM-8Vi accept configurations
using the same commands and procedures as the ports on the FM-32Ti and FM-24Fi
modules, except that the ports can only be configured for 10 Mbps.

All installed power supplies must be of the same type. You cannot mix 110 VAC, 220
VAC, and -48 VDC power supplies in a single chassis.
All BlackDiamond power supplies are hot-swappable. They are also load-sharing. If one
power supply fails in a BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis, the remaining power
supplies will provide sufficient power to operate a chassis that has all slots populated
with modules.
Switch Connectivity and the Backplane
Switch connectivity is an important aspect of the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch. The
MSM64i module is the internal switch fabric for data being sent between I/O modules.
No configuration information is stored on the I/O modules; all configuration
information is stored on the MSM64i module(s). Each MSM64i has two CPUs for
protocol processing and network management. For full redundancy, you can install up
to four MSM64i modules in the BlackDiamond 6816 switch and up to two MSM64i
modules in the BlackDiamond 6808 switch.
The BlackDiamond 6800 series switch has a 100% passive backplane which means the
backplane does not contain any active components that can fail. A passive backplane is
important because it increases the reliability of the switch. The I/O modules treat the
backplane as one logical connection and use the same load sharing (trunking) algorithm
as the front facing ports to distribute the switch traffic. There are multiple Gigabit links
from the I/O modules to the MSM64i modules, and most I/O modules have eight full
duplex Gigabit Ethernet links to the backplane that provide 16 bps full duplex
bandwidth to the backplane. If one of the backplane Gigabit Ethernet links fails,
ExtremeWare reroutes the switch traffic from the failed backplane Gigabit Ethernet link
to another available backplane link. By moving to another available backplane link,
switch connectivity is not disrupted.
With ExtremeWare 6.1 and later, you can configure the backplane load-sharing
algorithm. The default load-sharing algorithm uses ingress port-based trunking. In an
Internet bridging or routing environment, the address-based algorithm may be more
appropriate. For more information about how to configure the backplane load-sharing
algorithm, see the ExtremeWare Software User Guide.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide

BlackDiamond 6800 Series Switch Overview
Packet Switching and Routing
Each installed I/O module has Gigabit Ethernet links that attach to the backplane. The
backplane divides these links equally among the MSM64i modules that are installed in
the switch. For example, if you install an F48Ti module, it has eight Gigabit Ethernet
links to the switch backplane. If you have a BlackDiamond 6816 and install four
MSM64i modules, each module receives two of the eight Gigabit Ethernet links. If you
have a BlackDiamond 6808 and install two MSM64i modules, each module receives four
of the eight Gigabit Ethernet links.
Following Safety Information
All service to BlackDiamond 6800 series modules, fan trays, and power supplies should
be performed by qualified service personnel only.
Warning: Read the safety information in Appendix A thoroughly before installing
your Extreme Networks switch. Failure to follow this safety information can lead
to personal injury or damage to the equipment.

Installing the Chassis
The BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis fits in standard 19-inch (48.26-cm) racks. The
BlackDiamond chassis measures 35 U in height, and the BlackDiamond 3808 chassis
measures 15 U in height.
The BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis is shipped empty. For your safety, due to the
increased weight of the chassis after components are installed and to prevent damage to
the equipment, we strongly recommend that you install the power supply and modules
after you mount the empty chassis in a rack.
Note: Mount the chassis in a rack before installing any switch components.
Rack Installation
To mount the BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis in a rack:

14 BlackDiamond 6800 Series
Switch Power Supplies
This chapter describes:
• Important facts about the BlackDiamond 6800 series power supplies
• Installation and removal procedures for the Alpine 3800 series power supplies
BlackDiamond power supplies are iPower power supplies. Three types of power
supplies are available:
• 220 VAC
• 110 VAC
• -48 VDC
All installed power supplies must be of the same type. You cannot mix 110 VAC, 220
VAC, and -48 VDC power supplies in a single chassis.
All BlackDiamond power supplies are fully fault-tolerant and hot-swappable. They are
also load-sharing. If you have three or more power supplies installed in a
BlackDiamond 6818 switch or two or more power supplies installed in a BlackDiamond
6808 switch, you can remove one of them without turning off power to the chassis.
Note: If you install four power supplies in your BlackDiamond 6816 chassis, the
power supplies will deliver full redundancy.
The BlackDiamond 6800 series switch generates SNMP traps for the following events:
• AC power source fails
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
14-1
BlackDiamond 6800 Series Switch Power Supplies
• Power supply fails
• Power supply is removed
220 VAC Power Supplies
If you install a 220 VAC power supply into the BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis, 220
Volts of power is required for full operation. If you operate the BlackDiamond 6800
series switch at 110 Volts instead of 220 Volts, it is possible that not all of the I/O
modules will power up. The MSM64i will perform power calculations and power up
the maximum number of I/O modules from left (slot 1) to right (slot 16 in the
BlackDiamond 6816 and slot 8 in the BlackDiamond 6808). It is possible to skip a
module if that module is not within the power budget but the subsequent module is.
When you use 110 Volts, typically only eight modules in the BlackDiamond 6816 and
four modules in the BlackDiamond 6808 are powered on.
The BlackDiamond switch supports a combination of the old 220 VAC PSUs (part
number 50012) with the new iPower 220 VAC PSUs (part number 50021) when installed
in the same chassis. However, you may get reduced power if a combination of the two
types of 220 VAC PSUs are installed in the same chassis.
220 VAC power supplies slide in from the front of the chassis, as illustrated in
Figure 14-1.

Selecting the DC Cabling
Use the following guidelines when selecting cabling for the DC power supplies:
• Each DC power supply requires dedicated 55 A service.
• For DC power cables, use 4 AWG, high-strand-count wire cable.
Preparing the DC Cabling
Use the following guidelines when preparing cabling for the DC power supplies:
• Each DC power supply requires dedicated 60 A service.
• For DC power cables, use 4 AWG, high-strand-count wire cable with dual hole lugs
that fit over M6 (metric) terminals that are centered 0.625 inch (15.86 mm) apart.
• For convenience, the lock washers and nuts that you use to connect the source DC
cables to the power terminals are loosely mounted on the studs of the DC power
supply.
Note: Add a length of heat-shrink tubing to prevent the crimp area on the lug
from coming into contact with the metal faceplate of the DC power supply.

Verifying a Successful Installation
After you supply power to the BlackDiamond switch, each MSM64i performs a POST of
its circuitry. The LED labeled “SYS” on the MSM64i blinks amber during the POST.
After the MSM64i has passed its POST and is operational, each I/O module performs
its own POST.
Note: See Chapter 15 for more information about switch management module
LED activity and Chapter 16 for more information about I/O module LED activity.
Removing a BlackDiamond 6800 Series Power
Supply
BlackDiamond 6800 series power supplies are hot-swappable. You can add or remove
power supplies without turning off power to the chassis and normal operation will
continue was long as the switch has enough power to support the installed modules. If
you have three or more power supplies installed in a BlackDiamond 6818 or two or
more power supplies installed in a BlackDiamond 6808, you can remove one of them
without turning off power to the chassis.
Three types of power supplies are available: 110 VAC, 220 VAC, and -48 VDC. All
installed power supplies must be of the same type.
To remove a 110 VAC, 220 VAC, or -48 VDC power supply:
1 Attach the ESD strap that is provided to your wrist and connect the metal end to the
ground receptacle that is located on the top-left corner of the switch front panel.
2 Completely remove the power supply cord(s) from the wall outlet and then from the
power supply. If you have a DC power supply, turn the on/off switch to the off
position and remove the power cables.

Management Switch Module
This chapter describes:
• Important information about the BlackDiamond 6800 series Management Switch
Fabric Module (MSM64i)
• Installation and removal procedures for the BlackDiamond 6800 series MSM64i
The Management Switch Fabric Module (MSM64i) is the internal switch fabric for data
that is being sent between I/O modules. One MSM64i is required for switch operation
in both the BlackDiamond 6816 and the BlackDiamond 6808; however, adding more
MSM64i modules increases both reliability and throughput. Each MSM64i has two
CPUs for protocol processing and network management. For full redundancy, you can
install up to four MSM64i modules in the BlackDiamond 6816 switch and up to two
MSM64i modules in the BlackDiamond 6808 switch. With full redundancy, the
BlackDiamond 6800 series switch is a fully nonblocking switch.
Table 15-1 shows that packet throughput between I/O modules increases when
additional MSM64i modules are installed.

Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
MSM64i Activity
The BlackDiamond 6800 series switch can run with a single MSM64i installed. When
you install additional MSM64i modules, one of the MSM64i modules operates as the
master, and the others become the slave MSM64i.
The master MSM64i is responsible for upper-layer protocol processing and system
management functions. For example, OSPF computation and SNMP functions are
performed by the master MSM64i. Packet handling is distributed among the CPUs of all
installed MSM64i modules.
Selection of the master MSM64i occurs automatically. The following scenarios describe
the selection process:
• When the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch boots with one or more MSM64i
modules already installed, and an MSM64i module is installed in slot A, the MSM64i
in slot A becomes the master.
• When the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch boots with a single MSM64i (regardless
of the slot position), it is selected as the master. If additional MSM64i modules are
added to the switch after powered on, the added MSM64i modules become the
slaves. MSM64i modules that operate as slaves can be inserted and removed without
disrupting network services.
If you remove the master MSM64i while the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch is
operating, the slave MSM64i does a soft reset and becomes the master MSM64i.
When you save the switch configuration, it is saved to all MSM64i modules. If you
download a new ExtremeWare image, the image is downloaded to all MSM64i modules.

MSM64i Memory
The MSM64i has two 144-pin SODIMM sockets and ships with two 128 MB SODRAM
modules installed, as shown in Figure 15-2. The memory capacity can be increased by
replacing the SODIMM module(s).
50015
Note: The MSM64i supports only SODIMMs supplied by Extreme Networks.
EW_SODMs
Figure 15-2: MSM64i SODIMM sockets
For larger network configurations and larger routing tables, you can add additional
memory to the MSM64i. The MSM64i can be populated with any of the memory
combinations that are listed in Table 15-2. If you are using multiple MSM64i modules,
all modules must have identical memory configurations.

BlackDiamond 6800 Series Management Switch Module
As the MSM64i begins to seat in the chassis, the ejector/injector handles begin to
close.
4 To close the ejector/injector handles, use both hands simultaneously to push the
handles toward the center of the module.
5 To secure the module, tighten the two screws with a #1 Phillips screwdriver.
Note: Tighten the screws before you insert additional modules. Otherwise, you
might unseat modules that you have not secured.
6 Repeat this procedure for each additional MSM64i module, if applicable.
After a slave MSM64i is installed, use the synchronize command to replicate all
saved images and configurations from the master MSM64i to the slave MSM64i.
Caution: Depending on the size and complexity of your network, you should
install and configure a slave MSM64i module when there will be minimal network
disruption. You may need to reboot your switch after you use the synchronize
command.
7 Leave the ESD strap permanently connected to the chassis, so that it is always
available when you need to handle ESD-sensitive components.
Caution: You can install the MSM64i only in the designated (orange) slots. The
MSM64i does not fit in any other chassis slots.
Adding SODIMMs to the MSM64i Module
The MSM64i supports only SODIMMs from Extreme Networks.
To add a SODIMM to the MSM64i:
1 Attach an ESD strap to your wrist and connect the metal end to the ground
receptacle that is located on the top-left corner of the switch front panel.
2 Locate the SODIMM sockets on the MSM64i.
3 Position the SODIMM in the socket by ensuring that the gold fingers of the
SODIMM slip into the connector and the keying notches align.
4 Secure the SODIMM by pressing down firmly until it is locked into the socket and
the ejector locks rotate into position, as shown in Figure 15-5.

Modules
This chapter describes:
• Configuration information and specifications for the BlackDiamond 6800 series I/O
modules
• Installation and removal procedures for the BlackDiamond 6800 series I/O modules
Configuring I/O Modules
No configuration information is stored on the I/O modules; all configuration
information is stored on the MSM64i module(s).
When the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch is powered on, ExtremeWare generates a
default configuration for any slots that contain I/O modules. The default configuration
allows the I/O module ports to participate in the VLAN named default. The default
configuration for the I/O module is not preserved unless you explicitly save the
configuration to nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM).
You can configure parameters of the I/O module after it is installed or you can
pre-configure a slot for a certain type of module and configuration. The pre-configured
information is applied to the module after it is inserted. If you pre-configure a slot for a
specific module type, and then insert a different type of module, the module reverts to
its default configuration.
Note: See the ExtremeWare Software User Guide for more information about
configuring I/O modules.

Figure 16-4: WDMi module
The WDMi module has one 10 Gbps port, which supports eight full-duplex Gigabit
Ethernet channels. The port transmits over a pair of single mode fiber cables using
wavelength division multiplexing. The port uses an SC-APC duplex connector with a
spring-loaded safety cover. APC connectors are polished at an 8° angle to minimize loss
and reflections over extended transmit distances.
The default configuration of the WDMi module is as follows:
• The port is added to the default VLAN as untagged.
• The port inherits the properties of the default VLAN (protocol type, VLANid, and so
forth).
The WDMi module transmits bi-directionally on both fiber cables and then multiplexes
these wavelengths over the single-mode optical fiber.

Initial Switch and Management Access
Powering On the Alpine Switch
To turn on power to the switch, connect the power cord to the power supply and then
to the wall outlet. If you install more than one power supply, connect a power cord to
each power supply and then to a different wall outlet.
Powering On the BlackDiamond Switch
To turn on power to the switch, connect the power cord to the power supply and then
to the wall outlet. If you install more than one power supply, connect a power cord to
each power supply and then to a different wall outlet. If you have a DC power supply,
turn the on/off switch to the on position.
Verifying the Installation
This section describes the events that indicate a successful installation for a Summit
switch, an Alpine switch, or a BlackDiamond switch after you turn on power to your
switch.
Verifying Successful Installation on the Summit Switch
After you supply power to the Summit switch, the switch performs a power-on self test
(POST).
During the POST, all ports are temporarily disabled, the packet LED is off, the power
LED is on, and the MGMT LED flashes. The MGMT LED flashes until the switch
successfully passes the POST.
If the switch passes the POST, the MGMT LED blinks at a slow rate (one blink per
second). If the switch fails the POST, the MGMT LED shows a solid yellow light.
Note: See Chapter 4 for more information about Summit LEDs.
Verifying a Successful Installation on the Alpine Switch
After you supply power to the Alpine switch, the integrated Switch Management
Module (Alpine 3802) or the SMMi (Alpine 3804 and Alpine 3808) performs a POST.
The LED labeled “DIAG” on the chassis (Alpine 3802) or on the SMMi (Alpine 3804 and
Alpine 3808) blinks green during the POST. After the integrated management module or
18-2

the SMMi has passed its POST and is operational, each I/O module then performs its
own POST.
Note: See Chapter 9 for more information about switch management module
LED activity and Chapter 10 for more information about I/O module LED activity.
Verifying a Successful Installation on the BlackDiamond
Switch
After you supply power to the BlackDiamond switch, each MSM64i performs a POST of
its circuitry. The LED labeled “SYS” on the MSM64i blinks amber during the POST.
After the MSM64i has passed its POST and is operational, each I/O module performs
its own POST.
Note: See Chapter 15 for more information about switch management module
LED activity and Chapter 16 for more information about I/O module LED activity.
Connecting Equipment to the Console Port
Connection to the console port is used for direct local management. The console port
settings are:
• Baud rate — 9600
• Data bits — 8
• Stop bit — 1
• Parity — None
• Flow control — XON/XOFF
The terminal or PC with terminal-emulation software that you connect to any Summit,
Alpine, or BlackDiamond switch must be configured with these settings.This procedure
is described in the documentation supplied with the terminal.
Appropriate cables are available from your local supplier, or you can make your own.

Safety Information
This is a Class 1 laser device.
Warning: Use fiber optic ports only for data communications applications that
require optical fiber. Use only with the appropriate connector. When not in use,
replace dust cover. Using this module in ways other than those described in this
manual can result in intense heat that can cause fire, property damage, or
personal injury.
Lithium Battery
The battery in the bq4830/DS1644 device is encapsulated and not user-replaceable. The
battery is located on the SMMi for the Alpine switch, and the MSM motherboard for the
BlackDiamond switch.
If service personnel disregard the instructions and attempt to replace the
bq4830/DS1644, replace the lithium battery with the same or equivalent type, as
recommended by the manufacturer.
Warning: Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with
the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used
batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Disposal requirements vary by country and by state.
• Lithium batteries are not listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a
hazardous waste. Therefore, they can typically be disposed of as normal waste.
• If you are disposing of large quantities, contact a local waste-management service.
• No hazardous compounds are used within the battery module.
• The weight of the lithium contained in each coin cell is approximately 0.035 grams.
• Two types of batteries are used interchangeably:
— CR chemistry uses manganese dioxide as the cathode material.
— BR chemistry uses poly-carbonmonofluoride as the cathode material.
