Introduction
This section introduces the SPECTRUM Device Management documentation for the FN and ELS devices.
This introduction to the Device Management
documentation for the FN and ELS devices
contains the following information:

Purpose and Scope
For more information about device management
using SPECTRUM and for explanations of basic
SPECTRUM functionality and navigation
techniques, refer to the documentation listed
under Required Reading.
Required Reading
To use this documentation effectively, you must
be familiar with the information covered by these
other SPECTRUM online documentation topics:
Use this documentation as a guide for managing
Cabletron’s FN10, FN100, ELS10, and ELS100
switches with the management module
SM-CSI1064. The documentation describes the
icons, menus, and views that enable you to
remotely monitor, configure, and troubleshoot
devices through software models in your
SPECTRUM database. Only information specific
to the supported management module is included
under this topic.

Introduction
Supported Devices
Supported Devices
ELS10 Ethernet Switches
The SPECTRUM management module
SM-CSI1064 allows you to model Cabletron’s FN
and ELS switches. The FN10 and FN100 are
earlier Fast Network switches; the ELS switches
are similar to the FN10 and FN100 but use a
current firmware revision. The switches are
described below.
The ELS10 switches are described below. These
switches operate in a modified cut-through mode
that increases performance for larger packets.
CSI_ELS10
The CSI_ELS10 is a 16 port Ethernet switch.
When modeled, the CSI_ELS10 is represented by
the ELS10-26 model type; the CSI_ELS10 is being
replaced in a later release by the ELS10-26,
which will use a different firmware revision.
FN10 Ethernet Switch
The FN10 Ethernet switches offer two optional
Fast Ethernet ports. The FN10 switches
accelerate network performance by creating
independent Ethernet connections, each with 10
Mbps of bandwidth.
ELS10-26TX
FN100 Fast Ethernet Switch
The FN100 Fast Ethernet switches combine highperformance switching with the flexibility of
mixed 10/100 Mbps operation. The FN100
contains an address database engine that
filters/forwards traffic to the ports on the device.
Additionally, the FN100 supports up to eight 192
MAC addresses, contains full store-and-forward
functionality and is protocol transparent.
Device Management
The SmartSTACK ELS10-26TX is a 24-port
10Mbps Ethernet switch with two additional Fast
Ethernet uplink ports; one fixed 100 Base-TX
(RJ45) and an optional Fast Ethernet Port
Interface Module slot (FE-PIM).
ELS10-27TX
The SmartSTACK ELS10-27TX is a 24-port
10Mbps Ethernet switch, which uses an ASICbased switching engine. The switch has three
10/100Mbps Autonegotiating ports with two slots
for multimode fiber uplinks, for a total of 27
ports. All ports have wire speed switching, and
full duplex operation on all ports.
Page 6
FN10/100 and ELS10/100
Introduction
The SPECTRUM Model
ELS100 Fast Ethernet Switches
ELS100-24TXG
The ELS100 switches automatically set each port
for half or full duplex modes of operation. The
ELS100 switches contain up to 24 RJ-45
switched ports for high-end desktop, workgroup,
and local backbone applications. The ELS100
switches support RMON Statistics, Alarms,
Events, and History functions.
The ELS 100-24 TXG is used to aggregate small
workgroups of lower-speed devices. It offers two
Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
The different models of the ELS switches are
described below.
The SPECTRUM Model
The SPECTRUM model type names, and the
represented FN or ELS switches, are shown
below:
•

ELS100-16TX
The ELS100-16TX has 16 switched 10/100Mbps
ports and is modeled with the CSI_ELS100 model
type. The ELS100-16TX provides support for two
Fast Ethernet fiber optic ports, via two optional
Ethernet Port Interface Modules (EPIM-100FX).
ELS100-24TX
The SmartSTACK ELS100-24TX has 24 switched
10/100Mbps ports and wire-speed throughput in
both half and full duplex modes.
CSI_FNET10 (FN10 Ethernet switch)
CSI_FNET100 (FN100 Fast Ethernet switch)
CSI_ELS10 (CSI_ELS10/ELS10-26 Ethernet)
CSI_ELS100 (ELS100-16TX Fast Ethernet)
Els100_Tx (ELS100-24TX Fast Ethernet)
Els100_TxG (ELS100-24TXG Fast Ethernet)
Els100_TxM (ELS100-24TXM Fast Ethernet)
As shown in Figure 1 on Page 8, the appearance
of the Device icon varies slightly depending on the
view in which it appears.
ELS100-24TXM
The SmartSTACK ELS100-24 TXM has 24 ports
with one modular fiber uplink slot.

Device Views
This section describes the Device views and subviews available for the FN and ELS switches in SPECTRUM.
Device views use icons and labels to represent the
modeled device and its components, such as
modules, ports, and applications. The three types
of Device views for this management module are:
• Logical Device view (described in the
SPECTRUM Portable Management
Application documentation)
• Interface Device View (Page 11)
• Chassis Device View (Page 15) (available for
the ELS 100 series)
Device Management
Interface Device View
Access: From the Icon Subviews menu for the Device
icon, select Device > Interface.
This view provides dynamic configuration and
performance information for each of the device’s
serial/network I/O ports, which are represented

lower panel of the view uses interface icons to
represent the device’s serial/network I/O ports.
These icons provide the same information and

particular interface, a device icon appears on the
vertical bar above the interface icon along with an
icon representing the network group that
contains the device.

Model Information Views
This section provides a brief description of the Model Information views available for models of FN and ELS
devices in SPECTRUM.
Figure 12:
Access: From the Icon Subviews menu for the Device

Model Information views are also available for
each of the Interface icons in the Interface Device
and Interface Device Topology views, and for each
of the Application icons in the Application view.
Although these views may vary slightly depending
on the particular entity being modeled, their basic
layout and content are similar for most
SPECTRUM management modules. These views
are described in more detail in the SPECTRUM
Views documentation.
