output is factory set, and does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1 Laser transceivers
comply with the following safety standards:
•
21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services (FDA).
•
IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
•
CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical
Standardization).
When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the
Class 1 accessible emission limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not
considered hazardous.

Notice
Safety Information
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
Laser Radiation and Connectors
When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum
amount of radiant power exiting the fiber (under normal conditions) is -12.6 dBm or 55 x 10-6
watts.
Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly
from the optical port. The maximum radiance from the optical port (under worst case
conditions) is 0.8 W cm-2 or 8 x 103 W m2 sr-1.
Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to
view laser output increases eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, power must
be removed from the network adapter.

Introduction
The 9F426-02 FDDI SmartSwitch® Module shown in Figure 1-1, is a three port
switch module with two front panel FDDI interfaces and one INB-2 backplane
interface. The external FDDI networks are connected to the module using
standard Cabletron FPIMs on the front panel. The 9F426-02 module employs
SmartSwitch ASIC, a high performance switch design, and an Intel i960
microprocessor. The module can redirect one or both of its front panel FDDI
interfaces to the FNB backplane, creating an INB-1 to FNB bridge/switch product
that allows a migration from FNB modules to INB-1 modules.
Features
Processor
The 9F426-02 is equipped with an advanced Intel i960 microprocessor. This
microprocessor provides a platform for all management functions within a
scalable RISC-based architecture.
Packet Switch Engine
The 9F426-02 module incorporates the SmartSwitch ASIC, a collection of custom
ASlCs designed specifically for high-speed switching. The SmartSwitch ASIC bus
is 64-bits wide with a bandwidth of 320 Mbps. Since all frame translation, address
lookups, and forwarding decisions are performed in hardware, the 9F426-02 can
obtain a throughput performance of greater than 750K pps.
1-1
Introduction
Management
The 9F426-02 module has two full implementations of SMT (Version 7.3), one per
interface, and SNMP for local and remote management. Local management is
provided through the RS-232 COM ports on the SmartSwitch 9000 Environmental
Module using a standard VT-220 terminal or emulator. Remote management is
possible through Cabletron’s SPECTRUM or any SNMP compliant management
tool as well as telneting to the module. Management features including module
insert/bypass control, MAC placement, front panel/FNB configuration, and SMT
statistics. Switching statistics on both FDDI interfaces provide frames filtered,
frames forwarded, and all Spanning Tree Protocol parameters. The 9F426-02
module supports the IETF FDDI MIB (RFC-1512), IETF MIB ll (RFC-1213), IETF
BRIDGE MIB (RFC-1493), and a host of Cabletron enterprise MIBs. In addition,
the front panel provides LEDs for FDDI link status per port, as well as transmit
and receive activity.
Connectivity
The 9F426-02 module has one interface to the INB-2, two front panel FDDI
interfaces, or two FNB interfaces to the SmartSwitch 9000 FNB backplane. The
front panel connections are via standard Cabletron FPIMs. The INB-1 interface is
fixed, however, and the two FDDI interfaces can attach to one or both of the front
panel connectors, one or both of the FNB interfaces (FDDI-1 or FDDI-2), or one of
each.

Operation
The 9F426-02 module is capable of switching any three, of five possible interfaces,
depending on how it is configured. The INB-2 connection is always fixed. When
configuring the module, the decision is made to connect both front panel ports,
both FNB ports, or one front panel and one FNB port to the traditional switch.
As shown in Figure 3-1, packets may be received at the front panel FDDI ports,
the FNB rings (FNB-1 and/or FNB-2), and/or the INB-1 bus, according to the user
configuration. These packets are converted into canonical format. The
SmartSwitch ASIC circuitry decides from header information where the packets
should be sent. They are then converted from canonical format to the proper
format for that interface.

Operation
System Management Buses
There are two management channels within the SmartSwitch 9000 system: the
SMB-1 and the SMB-10. These buses provide out-of-band management and intermodule management communication.
SMB-1 Bus
The SMB-1 is a 1Mbs management bus located within the SmartSwitch 9000. This
bus is utilized by all diagnostic controllers in the system including connectivity
modules, power supply modules and the environmental module. The SMB-1
transports inter-chassis information between system components, such as power
and environmental information, as well as diagnostic messages. Periodic loopback tests are performed by all modules which share this bus to ensure the
validity of SMB-1. In the event a failure is detected on SMB-1, the SMB-10 may be
used as an alternate communication channel.
SMB-10 Bus
The SMB-10 is a 10Mbs management bus located within the SmartSwitch 9000
that is also used for inter-chassis communication of modules, as well as serving as
an out-of-band management channel into the SmartSwitch 9000. The SMB-10 is
externalized from the chassis via an optional Ethernet Port Interface Module
(EPIM) located on the front of the Environmental Module. Through an EPIM
connection, full SNMP management of the SmartSwitch 9000 is available out-ofband from user data. Modules that share the SMB-10 bus periodically send out
loop-back packets to ensure the validity of SMB-10. In the event a fault is detected
on the SMB-10, the SMB-1 can be used as an alternate communication channel by
the modules.
System Diagnostic Controller
This diagnostic controller is composed of a Z-80 microprocessor and its
supporting logic. The diagnostic controller is designed to control the power-up
sequencing of modules, monitor the 9F426-02 input and output power
parameters, keep watch over the main host processor, as well as monitor the
temperature and control the SMB LANVIEW diagnostic LED. Although the
diagnostic controller and the main host processor can operate independent of
each other if needed, they exchange information about each other’s status and
overall module condition. The information gathered by the diagnostic controller
is available to the network manager via local/remote management and the LCD
located on the environment module. The 9F426-02 has been designed so that in
the event of a diagnostic controller fault, the 9F426-02 will continue to function.
3-2
Operation
DC/DC Converter
The DC/DC converter converts the 48 VDC on the system power bus to the
necessary operating voltages for its host network services module. The diagnostic
controller monitors and controls the operation of the DC/DC converter.
INB Interface
Each module that attaches to the INB has an INB Network Interface Block (NIB).
The INB NIB converts canonical frames to fixed length data blocks for
transmission onto the INB. For data blocks received from the INB, the INB NIB
reassembles the data blocks received from the INB back into canonical frames for
transmission to the SmartSwitch ASIC then from the SmartSwitch ASIC to the
front panel ports.
SecureFast Switch
The SmartSwitch ASIC is a hardware-based switch design that is the key building
block of the SmartSwitch 9000. All filtering/forwarding decisions are made in
hardware, as opposed to software as in traditional switches. This custom
hardware allows the SmartSwitch ASIC to process over 150K frames per second.
The SmartSwitch ASIC is designed to support up to 64 ports that are shared
between the host processor, the INB backplane, and LAN/WAN interfaces on the
front panel of SmartSwitch 9000 modules.
The SmartSwitch ASIC can operate in two modes: as a traditional switch, or as a
SecureFast Switch (SFS). When operating in traditional switch mode, it makes
filtering/forwarding decisions based on Destination Address (DA), with standard
IEEE 802.1d learning. When operating in SmartSwitch ASIC mode, all
filtering/forwarding decisions are made based on a DA-SA pair and its receive
port. These DA-SA pairs with the associated receive port are programmed into
the switch using Cabletron’s SecureFast Virtual Network Server (SecureFast
VNS). This provides the network administrator with the ultimate network
security without the performance degradation found when using routers or
traditional switches with special filtering capabilities. The SmartSwitch 9000 hub
can support modules operating in traditional switch mode and SmartSwitch ASIC
mode simultaneously providing security when/where needed and ease of
configuration where security is not required.
3-3
Operation
i960 Core
The i960 core provides the SNMP protocol stacks, to support industry-standard
MIBs. Additionally, Cabletron enterprise extension MIBs are supported for each
media type. Advanced management services, such as the Distributed LAN
Monitor, telnet and network address to MAC address mapping, are also provided
by the i960 core.
The Host engine sends and receives packets via the CPU SmartSwitch ASIC
Interface. This allows the traditional switch to perform spanning tree protocol and
other traditional switching functions. The SMB Interfaces provide communication
to the Host Engine for management functions and communication with other
modules in the chassis.
