Safety Information
Class 1 Laser Transceivers
The single mode interface modules use Class 1 laser transceivers.
Read the following safety information before installing or operating these modules.
The Class 1 laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This control loop eliminates the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1 Laser transceivers comply with the following safety standards:
• 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).
• IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
• CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).
When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1 accessible emission limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered hazardous.
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.

4H4285-49
The 4H4285‐49 is an edge‐network switch with 48, 10BASE‐T/100BASE‐TX and PoE compliant ports, accessed through fixed front panel RJ45 connectors and an option slot for a network expansion module (NEM). Each of the fixed front panel ports can operate in either half‐duplex or full‐duplex mode of operation. The duplex mode can be determined by either auto‐negotiation or manual configuration. The DFE‐Gold module can be installed in a Matrix N3, N5, N7, or E7 chassis.
1-2
Introduction
DFE-Gold Module
Caution: Regardless of which chassis is used, the chassis system must be dedicated to
DFE-Gold modules (4xxxxx) only. Do not insert 7xxxxx modules or other legacy modules
into the same chassis with 4xxxxx modules as this will render the chassis inoperable.
Precaución: Cualquiera que sea el chasis que utilice, recuerde que el sistema debe
aplicarse exclusivamente a los módulos DFE (Distributed Forwarding Engine) de la serie
Gold (4xxxxx). No inserte módulos 7xxxxx ni otros módulos legado dentro de un chasis
con módulos 4xxxxx. Si lo hace, el chasis no funcionará.
The DFE module ports can be configured to provide a high level of security, control traffic by limiting the rate of traffic accepted into the module and prioritizing traffic to expedite the flow of higher priority traffic through the module. For a complete list of capabilities, and information concerning how to configure the DFE module features are provided in the Enterasys Matrix DFE‐Gold Series Configuration Guide.
The DFE module receives power and backplane connectivity when it is inserted into the Matrix E7, Matrix N7, Matrix N5, or Matrix N3 chassis. The power to support the DFE module connections to 802.3af PoE‐compliant 48 Vdc PDs (powered devices) can be from the backplane of a Matrix N5 chassis or from an optional external Matrix N‐POE Power System. The Matrix N‐POE Power System can provide 48 Vdc to support up to eight PoE‐compliant DFE modules. The connection from the N‐POE Power System is by way of the 48 Vdc ~ 20 A Maximum Optional Power Input connector on the front panel of the DFE module.
Note: Only an N-POE Power System can be connected to the 48 Vdc ~ 20 A Maximum
Optional Power Input connector of a series PoE-compliant DFE module such as the
4H4285-49.

4H4285-49
Depending on how the 4H4285‐49 is configured, it can support up to:
•
48, 10BASE‐T/100BASE‐TX switched ports connected through 48 fixed front panel connectors, or
•
48, 10BASE‐T/100BASE‐TX switched ports and an optional network expansion module (NEM).
The fixed front panel ports can also support connections to PoE‐compliant PDs when the module is connected to an external N‐PoE Power System or installed in an N5 chassis. Management
Management of the module can be either in‐band or out‐of‐band. In‐band remote management is possible using Telnet, Enterasys Networks’ NetSight® management application, or WebView™ application. Out‐of‐band management is provided through the RJ45 COM (Communication) port on the front panel using a VT100 terminal or a VT100 terminal emulator.
Switch Configuration Using WebView
Enterasys Networks’ HTTP‐based Web management application (WebView) is an intuitive web tool for simple management tasks.
Switch Configuration Using CLI Commands
The CLI commands enable you to perform more complete switch configuration management tasks.
For CLI command set information and how to configure the module, refer to the Enterasys Matrix DFE‐Gold Series Configuration Guide.
Secure Networks Policy Support
Policy Enabled Networking manages the allocation of networking infrastructure resources in a secure and effective manner. Using Secure Networks Policy, an IT Administrator can predictably assign appropriate resources to the Users, Applications, and Services that use the network; while blocking or containing access for inappropriate or potentially dangerous network traffic. Using this technology it is possible, for the first time, to align IT services with the needs of specific users and applications, and to leverage the network as a key component of the organization’s security strategy.
Matrix DFE-Gold Series PoE Module Hardware Installation Guide
1-5
Standards Compatibility
The Secure Networks Policy Architecture consists of 3 components: Classification Rules, Network Services, and Behavioral Profiles. These are defined as follows:
•
Classification Rules determine how specific traffic flows (identified by Layer 2, Layer 3, and Layer 4 information in the data packet) are treated by each Switch or Router. In general, Classification Rules are applied to the networking infrastructure at the network edge/ingress point. •
Network Services are logical groups of Classification Rules that identify specific networked applications or services. Users may be permitted or denied access to these services based on their role within the organization. Priority and bandwidth rate limiting may also be controlled using Network Services. •
Behavioral Profiles (or roles) are used to assign Network Services to groups of users who share common needs–for example Executive Managers, Human Resources Personnel, or Guest Users. Access, resources, and security restrictions are applied as appropriate to each Behavioral Profile. A variety of authentication methods including 802.1X, EAP‐TLS, EAP‐TTLS, and PEAP may be used to classify and authorize each individual user; and the IT Administrator may also define a Behavioral Profile to apply in the absence of an authentication framework.
Standards Compatibility
The DFE module is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3‐2002, 802.3ae‐2002, 802.3af‐2003, 802.1D‐1998, and 802.1Q‐1998 standards. The DFE‐Gold module provides IEEE 802.1D‐1998 Spanning Tree Algorithm (STA) support to enhance the overall reliability of the network and protect against “loop” conditions.
LANVIEW Diagnostic LEDs
LANVIEW diagnostic LEDs serve as an important troubleshooting aid by providing an easy way to observe the status of individual ports and overall network operations.

Network Requirements
Before installing the module, review the requirements and specifications referred to in this chapter concerning the following:
Refer to page...
For information about...
Link Aggregation
2-1
10BASE-T Network
2-2
100BASE-TX Network
2-2
The network installation must meet the requirements to ensure satisfactory performance of this equipment. Failure to do so will produce poor network performance.
Note: The Matrix DFE-Gold Series Configuration Guide and the Cabling Guide referred to
in the following sections can be found on the Enterasys Networks World Wide Web site:
http://www.enterasys.com/
Refer to “Related Documents” on page xvi.
Link Aggregation
Link Aggregation is a method of grouping multiple physical ports on a network device into one logical link according to the IEEE 802.3ad‐2002 standard. Because Link Aggregation is standards based, it allows for automatic configuration with manual overrides (if applicable), and can operate on 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps Ethernet full duplex ports. Thus the network administrator can combine a group of five 100 Mbps ports into a logical link (trunk) that functions as a single 500 Mbps port. As long as the DFE modules agree on which ports are in the trunk, there are no problems with looping, and the Spanning Tree can treat this trunk as a single port.
Matrix DFE-Gold Series PoE Module Hardware Installation Guide
2-1
10BASE-T Network
In normal usage (and typical implementations) there is no need to enable/disable ports for Link Aggregation. The default values will result in the maximum number of aggregations possible. If the switch is placed in a configuration with its peers not running the protocol, no aggregations will be formed and the DFE modules will function normally (that is, Spanning Tree will block redundant paths).
For details about the commands involved with configuring the Link Aggregation function, refer to the Matrix DFE‐Gold Series Configuration Guide.
10BASE-T Network
When connecting a 10BASE‐T segment to any of the RJ45 fixed front‐panel ports of the 4H4285‐49, ensure that the network meets the Ethernet network requirements of the IEEE 802.3‐2002 standard for 10BASE‐T and 802.3af‐2003 standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE) power sourcing applications over Ethernet cabling. For more information about PoE, refer to Appendix C.
Note: If a port is to operate at 100 Mbps, Category 5 cabling must be used. Category 3
cabling does not meet 100 Mbps specifications. For 10 Mbps operation only, Category 3 or
Category 5 cabling can be used. Refer to the “100BASE-TX Network” on page 2-2 for
information about 100BASE-TX networks and cabling.
100BASE-TX Network
The fixed front panel ports of the 4H4285‐49 provide a connection that supports Category 5 UTP cabling. The device at the other end of the twisted pair segment must meet IEEE 802.3‐2002 100BASE‐TX Fast Ethernet network requirements for the devices to operate at 100 Mbps. The fixed front‐panel ports also support the 802.3af‐2003 standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE) power sourcing applications over existing cabling. For more information about PoE, refer to Appendix C.
Note: The fixed ports of the module support Category 5 UTP cabling with an impedance
between 85 and 111 ohms for 100 Mbps operation.
The module is capable of operating at either 10 or 100 Mbps. The module automatically
senses the speed of the other device and adjusts its speed accordingly.

To ensure proper operation of the system, consider the following examples and rules for module placement in either chassis.
Example 1 (Figure 3-1, A)
Shows one module installed in the chassis. If the chassis is populated with only one 4xxxxx, it must be installed in slot 1. Rule: If only one 4xxxxx is installed in the chassis, it must be in slot 1. Always install a 4xxxxx in slot 1 of the chassis.
Example 2 (Figure 3-1, B)
Shows the chassis fully populated with 4xxxxx modules. By default, the chassis system can continue to operate after losing operation of all modules except the module in slot 1. (The loss of operation can be due to module reset, removal, or failure.) However, with the redundancy key installed, the system will remain operational provided that there is an operating module in slot 1 or 2.
Caution: When installing a module into slot 1 of a non-operating chassis, it is strongly
recommended that the module have the desired version of firmware. Installation of a
replacement module into slot 1 of a non-operating chassis requires reconfiguration of the
system settings.
Precaución: Para instalar un módulo en la ranura 1 del chasis apagado, lo mejor es que
el módulo corresponda a la versión de firmware solicitada. Para instalar un módulo de
reemplazo en la ranura 1 del chasis apagado será necesario reconfigurar el sistema.

For information on how to use this command, refer to the Enterasys Matrix DFE‐Gold Series Configuration Guide. To access this guide on the web, refer to “Related Documents” on page xvi. Rule: By default, the operation of all modules, except for the one in slot 1, can be lost without loosing system operation. With the redundancy key installed, the system will remain in operation provided the module in slot 1 or 2 is operational.
Example 3 (Figure 3-1, C)
Shows the module missing from slot 1. As long as the redundancy key has been programmed into the system and the module in slot 2 is operational, the system will continue to operate.
Caution: When installing a module into slot 1 of a non-operating chassis, it is strongly
recommended that the module have the desired version of firmware. Installation of a
replacement module into slot 1 of a non-operating chassis requires reconfiguration of the
system settings.
Precaución: Para instalar un módulo en la ranura 1 del chasis apagado, lo mejor es que
el módulo corresponda a la versión de firmware solicitada. Para instalar un módulo de
reemplazo en la ranura 1 del chasis apagado será necesario reconfigurar el sistema.
Rule: You can power up the system completely as long as there is a module in slot 1. With the redundancy key installed, you can power up the system completely as long as there is an operating module in slot 1 or 2.
Example 4 (Figure 3-1, D)
Shows a chassis populated with 4xxxxx modules in all slots except 1 and 2. This system is not operational because there is no module in slot 1 or 2 for management purposes.
Rule: In a 4xxxxx system, the chassis system will not operate with modules missing from slots 1 and 2. Example 5 (Figure 3-1, E)
Shows a chassis populated with 4xxxxx and 7xxxxx modules. DO NOT install 4xxxxx and 7xxxxx modules in the same chassis. In a 4xxxxx system, the chassis must be dedicated to DFE modules only.

Connecting 48 Vdc Power for PoE Operation
Connecting 48 Vdc Power for PoE Operation
The Matrix N5 (7C105‐P) chassis provides 48 Vdc to connected PDs (powered devices) by way of its backplane connection to a PoE‐compliant DFE module such as the 4H4285‐49.
Note: When you install the 4H4285-49 in a Matrix N5 chassis, the 4H4285-49 48 Vdc
Optional Power Input does not support a connection from an external N-POE Power
System. The 48 Vdc power is supplied through the backplane of the N5 chassis from its
own 48 Vdc power modules. If none of these power modules are installed, then there is no
PoE support.
Warning: The DFE module is shipped with a cover over its 48 Vdc Optional Power Input
connector. Do not remove this cover when the DFE module is installed in an N5 chassis.
This cover is removed only when you connect a 48 Vdc power cable from the Enterasys
N-POE Power System.
Advertencia: El modulo DFE es embarcado con una cubierta sobre su conector de poder
opcional de 48 Vdc. No remover esta cubierta cuando el modulo DFE es instalado en un
chassis N5. Esta cubierta debe removerse unicamente cuando se conecta el cable de
poder de 48 Vdc hacia el Sistema de Enterasys de Energia por Cable (Enterasys N-POE
Power System).
Warnhinweis: Im Auslieferungszustand der DFE Module stülpt eine Schutzkappe über
dem 48V Gleichspannungs-Anschluss, die nur dann abgezogen werden darf, wenn ein
Enterasys N-POE Power System angeschlossen wird. Keinesfalls darf diese Schutzkappe
abgezogen werden, wenn das DFE Modul in einem N5 Chassis installiert wird.
For Matrix E7 (6C107), Matrix N3 (7C103) and Matrix N7 (7C107) chassis, an optional external Enterasys Matrix N‐POE Power System is required to support PD connections to the 4H4285‐49. The power from the Matrix N‐POE Power System is supplied through a DC power cable connection to the front‐panel 48 Vdc Optional Power connector on the 4H4285‐49.
Warning: The 48V wire harness contains two fuses, F11 and F29. If a fuse needs to be
replaced, it must be done by service personnel only. The fuse must be replaced with the
same Type and Rated fuse 20 A, 400 VDC.
Advertencia: E arnes del cable de 48V contiene dos fusibles, F11 y F29. Si un fusible
requiere ser reemplazado, debe ser hecho por personal de servicio unicamente. El fusible
debe ser reemplazado por uno del mismo tipo y clasificado como fusible de 20 A, 400
VDC.
Warnhinweis: Im Kabelbaum der 48V Zuleitung befinden sich 2 Sicherungen, F11 und
F29. Die Sicherung darf nur duch Fachpersonal getauscht werden und darf auch nur
durch den gleichen Typ ersetzt werden ( 20A / 400VDC ).
Note: If you are planning to install a PoE-compliant DFE module such as the 4H4285-49
in a Matrix E7 (6C107), Matrix N3 (7C103) or Matrix N7 (7C107) chassis, install and
connect the Matrix N-POE Power System before connecting to PDs.

Installation
Connecting to the Network
Connecting to the Network
This section provides the procedures for connecting unshielded twisted pair (UTP) segments from the network or other devices to the 4H4285‐49 (“Connecting UTP Cables to 4H4285‐49” on page 3‐13).
Note: If the DFE module is being installed in a network using Link Aggregation, there are
rules concerning the network cable and port configurations that must be followed for Link
Aggregation to operate properly. Before connecting the cables, refer to the Enterasys
Matrix DFE-Gold Series Configuration Guide for the configuration information. For details
on how to obtain manuals, refer to “Related Documents” on page xvi.
Connecting UTP Cables to 4H4285-49
The fixed RJ45 front panel connections of the 4H4285‐49 are 10/100 Mbps ports. The ports have internal crossovers, and also support automatic‐polarity sensing when configured for automatic‐negotiation.
If automatic‐negotiation is not activated on a port, use a straight‐through cable when connecting a workstation to the port. When connecting a networking device to the port, such as a bridge, repeater, or router, use a crossover cable.
If a port is set for auto‐negotiation, automatic‐polarity sensing is also activated. Automatic‐polarity sensing eliminates the need for a crossover cable, regardless if the connection is to another network device or a workstation.
Note: All RJ45 front panel ports on the 4H4285-49 support Category 5 Unshielded
Twisted Pair (UTP) cabling with an impedance between 85 and 111 ohms. Category 3
cable may be used if the connection is going to be used only for 10 Mbps.
The fixed RJ45 front panel connectors of the 4H4285‐49 also support PoE‐compliant connections to PDs (powered devices) that require 48 Vdc through the UTP cable to operate. Whether the 48 Vdc is available through the backplane of an N5 chassis or externally from an N‐POE Power System, you can verify if there is power at each port as described later in this procedure. Making the UTP Connections
Caution: To prevent damage to the equipment, do not connect the PoE supported ports
(1 through 48) to segments running between buildings. Keep connections to equipment
within the building.
Precaución: Para evitar que el equipo se dañe, no conecte los puertos PoE
(1 a 48) a segmentos que vayan de un edificio a otro. Mantenga las conexiones de los
equipos dentro del edificio.

Using LANVIEW
The DFE module uses a built‐in visual diagnostic and status monitoring system called LANVIEW. The LANVIEW LEDs (Figure 4‐1) allow quick observation of the network status to aid in diagnosing network problems. About the Management (MGMT) LED
The MGMT LED (shown in Figure 4‐1) indicates when the module is serving as the Management Module to control the management functions for all DFE‐Gold modules in the chassis. The Management Module handles all IP requests to the chassis IP address, such as PING, Telnet, SNMP, HTTP, and more. The Management Module also handles the CLI configuration sessions through the console port. So, when you plug into a DFE‐Gold module COM port to configure a DFE‐Gold module in the chassis, it is handled by the Management Module regardless of the DFE‐Gold module COM port that you use.

Using LANVIEW
Viewing Receive/Transmit Activity
On the 4H4285‐49 you can view the receive and transmit activity on the RX and TX LEDs. However, only one group of 12 ports may be viewed at a time.
To view the receive and transmit activity on a group of attached segments, press the GROUP SELECT button (see Figure 4‐1) to step to the group of interest (Groups 1 through 4). Each time the GROUP SELECT button is pressed, the GROUP LED lights up in sequence, indicating which group is selected. The receive and transmit activity for that group of segments is then indicated by the RX and TX LEDs for each port.

Using LANVIEW
Viewing the PoE Port Status
If the 4H4285‐49 is installed in an N5 chassis or is receiving 48 Vdc from an external N‐POE Power System to support connections to PDs (Powered Devices), you can view the power status indications on the RX and TX LEDs. However, only one group of 12 ports may be viewed at a time. To view the PoE port status, refer to Figure 4‐1 and proceed as follows:
1.
Press the GROUP SELECT button for more then two second. The 4H4285‐49 will enter the PoE port status mode and the PoE LED turns green.
2.
Now, every time you press the GROUP SELECT button for less than a second, the GROUP LED lights up in sequence, indicating which Group is selected. The PoE POWER STATUS for that group of segments is then indicated by the RX and TX LEDs for each segment. If there is power at the port, the RX LED is green and the TX LED is off. Otherwise, refer to Table 4‐1 for troubleshooting information.
3.
Press the GROUP SELECT button again for more than two second. This returns the 4H4285‐49 to the default status mode to monitor RX (receive) and TX (transmit) activity and the PoE LED turns off. Table 4‐1 describes the LED indications and provides recommended actions as appropriate.
Note: The terms flashing, blinking, solid, and Alternately used in Table 4-1 indicate
the following:
Flashing indicates an LED is flashing randomly.
Blinking indicates an LED is flashing at a steady rate (approximately 50% on, 50% off).
Solid indicates a steady LED light. No pulsing.
Alternately indicates an LED is flashing at a steady rate other than 50% on, 50% off.

Overview of DFE Module Shutdown Procedure
Overview of DFE Module Shutdown Procedure
Caution: Do not remove a DFE module from an operating chassis system before reading
the following information and instructions.
Precaución: Antes de retirar los módulos DFE del chasis en funcionamiento, lea las
siguientes instrucciones y la información suministrada.
The DFE modules installed in a Matrix N3, N5, or N7 chassis are interdependent and operate under a single IP address as a single, distributed switch system (hardware, databases, and persistent storage). In this operating environment, the DFE module must shut down in an orderly fashion to ensure that the other modules in the system and other devices on the network are notified of the impending change. The device(s) can then make intelligent decisions and stabilize the network before the change is made; thereby increasing network availability.
You can shut down a DFE module in an operating system using the OFFLINE/RESET switch shown in Figure 4‐2. There are two procedures to shut down a DFE module.
•
Recommended shutdown procedure (page 4‐10)
•
Last resort shutdown procedure (not recommended) (page 4‐10)

Overview of DFE Module Shutdown Procedure
Recommended Shutdown Procedure Using OFFLINE/RESET
Switch
Caution: Do not pull any DFE module out of an operating chassis before it has completed
its shutdown routine.
Precaución: No retire los módulos DFE del chasis en funcionamiento hasta que no se
haya terminado con la rutina de apagado.
Before pulling a DFE module out of a chassis, press or tap on its OFFLINE/RESET switch for less than 1 second. Its CPU LED changes from solid green to blinking between green and amber, indicating that the module is shutting down. At the end of the shutdown routine, the CPU LED changes to a 67%/33% sequence of amber/off, respectively, indicating the module is in a halt state. In this time it is safe to restart or remove the module from the chassis.
When a controlled shutdown is initiated from the OFFLINE/RESET switch, you have 60 seconds from the time the CPU starts alternately flashing amber/off until the device automatically restarts.
Note: The only safe time to pull a DFE module out of the chassis is when the CPU LED
is alternately flashing amber/off. Otherwise, system operation will be interrupted.
Last Resort Shutdown Procedure Using OFFLINE/RESET Switch
Caution: This method of shutting down a DFE-Gold module is not recommended except
as a last resort, because all processes currently running on the module will be interrupted
resulting in loss of frames.
Precaución: No se recomienda utilizar este método para apagar los módulos DFE- Gold.
Recurra a él sólo como último recurso, puesto que interrumpe todos los procesos del
módulo en funcionamiento, lo que podría resultar pérdidas de frames.
To reset a DFE module without it performing an orderly shutdown routine, press and hold the OFFLINE/RESET switch for approximately 6 seconds. Pulling any DFE module out of the chassis before it has been shut down is not recommended. The only safe time to pull a module out of the chassis is after the completion of a shutdown and the management LED is alternately flashing amber/off.

Switch definitions and positions are as follows:
•
Switches 1 through 6 – For Enterasys Networks use only.
•
Switch 7 – Clear Persistent Data. Changing the position of this switch clears Persistent Data on the next power‐up of the module. All user‐entered parameters, such as the IP address, module names, and others, are reset to the factory default settings. Once the module resets, you can either use the factory default settings or reenter your own parameters.
•
Switch 8 – Clear Admin Password. Changing the position of this switch clears the admin password, and restores the factory default password on the next power‐up of the module. Once the module resets, you can either use the factory default settings or reenter your own password.
Note: Do not change the position of Switch 8 unless it is necessary to reset the admin
password to its factory default setting.

About PoE (Power over Ethernet)
This appendix provides an overview of Power over Ethernet Technology and how it is implemented in relation to the 4H4285‐49.
Overview
Power over Ethernet (PoE) refers to the ability to provide operational power to a device connected to a data network using the same cabling that provides the data interface. Modern Ethernet implementations employ differential signals over twisted pair cables. This requires at a minimum of two twisted pairs for a single physical link. Both ends of the cable are isolated with transformers blocking any DC or common mode voltage on the signal pair. PoE exploits this fact by using two twisted pairs as the two conductors to supply a direct current. One pair carries the power supply current and the other pair provides a path for the return current. While several proprietary legacy implementations of PoE have been deployed by LAN equipment vendors, in 2003 the IEEE published the IEEE 802.3af‐2003 specification, which is part of the 802.3 suite of standards.
The 4H4285‐49 is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3af standard. It supports the standard resistor based detection method, as well as AC disconnect capability. The 4H4285‐49 is also capable of supplying the maximum specified current to all ports simultaneously.
Each PD has a PDC (Powered Device Classification) that is transmitted to the DFE module for power management purposes. Table C‐1 on page C‐1 lists the classifications and the associated power ranges.

C-1
Proprietary PD Detection
Proprietary PD Detection
The 4H4285‐49 supports a subset of the currently deployed proprietary PoE methods. This includes support for Cisco PDs, including a proprietary capacitor based detection scheme. Power Interface
The 4H4285‐49 can interface to an external 48 Vdc supply that resides in a Matrix N5 chassis or from a separate Matrix N Series N‐POE Power System.
Matrix N5 Backplane 48 Vdc Interface
The 4H4285‐49 has a connector that interfaces with the backplane of the N5 chassis for 48 Vdc power. This power connection on the 4H4285‐49 is fused, has EMI suppression components for this interface, and can support a sustained output current of 20 A.
Front Panel 48 Vdc Interface
The 48 Vdc Optional Power Input connector on the 4H4285‐49 front panel provides a power interface connection for an Enterasys Matrix N Series N‐POE Power System, which provides the 48 Vdc power and return as well as the power supply status signals. The status signals indicate the presence and operating state of each power supply module in the N‐POE Power System. This 48 Vdc Optional Power Input interface is not fused as the N‐PoE Power System has a circuit breaker for each PoE switch module power feed.
Warning: The DFE module is shipped with a cover over its 48 Vdc Optional Power Input
connector. Do not remove this cover when the DFE module is installed in an N5 chassis.
This cover is removed only when you connect a 48 Vdc power cable from the Enterasys
N-POE Power System.
Advertencia: El modulo DFE es embarcado con una cubierta sobre su conector de poder
opcional de 48 Vdc. No remover esta cubierta cuando el modulo DFE es instalado en un
chassis N5. Esta cubierta debe removerse unicamente cuando se conecta el cable de
poder de 48 Vdc hacia el Sistema de Enterasys de Energia por Cable (Enterasys N-POE
Power System).
Warnhinweis: Im Auslieferungszustand der DFE Module stülpt eine Schutzkappe über
dem 48V Gleichspannungs-Anschluss, die nur dann abgezogen werden darf, wenn ein
Enterasys N-POE Power System angeschlossen wird. Keinesfalls darf diese Schutzkappe
abgezogen werden, wenn das DFE Modul in einem N5 Chassis installiert wird.

PoE Port Status LEDs
PoE Port Status LEDs
The PoE port status of each 10/100 Mbps front‐panel port is indicated by the two‐color RX and TX LED display for each port. To observe the PoE port status indications, you must switch the DFE module management system from the default RX/ TX Status Mode to the PoE Port Status Mode using the DFE module front‐panel GROUP SELECT button. The switch operation and a description of how to use the LED indications are described in “Using LANVIEW” on page 4‐1. Table C‐2 provides a brief description of each port status RX/TX LED display.
