Introduction
The HP StorageWorks Edge Switch 2/32 provides dynamic switched connections
between Fibre Channel servers and devices in a storage area network (SAN)
environment. SANs introduce the concept of server-to-device networking and
multi-switch fabrics, eliminate requirements for dedicated connections, and enable the
enterprise to become data centric.
A SAN provides speed, high capacity, and flexibility for the enterprise, and is
primarily based upon Fibre Channel architecture. The switch implements Fibre
Channel technology that provides a bandwidth of 2.125 Gbps, redundant switched
data paths, a scalable number of active ports, and long transmission distances (up to 35
km).
This chapter describes the switch and attached HP StorageWorks Ha-Fabric Manager
(HAFM) server. The chapter specifically discusses:
•
Switch management, error-detection and reporting features, serviceability
features, zoning, multi-switch fabrics, and specifications.
•
The HAFM server and minimum hardware specifications.
•
Remote workstation configurations and hardware specifications.
•
Maintenance approach.
•
Field-replaceable units (FRUs).
•
Connectors and indicators.
•
Software diagnostic features.
•
Tools and test equipment.

Introduction
Edge Switch 2/32 Description
The switch can be installed on a table or desk top, or mounted in an equipment cabinet
or in any standard equipment rack.
Multiple switches and the HAFM server communicate on a local area network (LAN)
through one or more 10Base-T Ethernet hubs. One or more 24-port Ethernet hubs are
optional and can be ordered with the switch. Up to three hubs are daisy-chained as
required to provide additional Ethernet connections as more switches (or other HP
managed products) are installed on a customer network.
Figure 1–1 illustrates the switch, HAFM server, and Ethernet hub.
HPJ3294A
Figure 1–1: Switch, HAFM server, and Ethernet hub
The switch provides dynamic switched connections for servers and devices, supports
mainframe and open-systems interconnection (OSI) computing environments, and
provides data transmission and flow control between device node ports (N_Ports) as
dictated by the Fibre Channel Physical and Signaling Interface (FC-PH 4.3). Through
interswitch links (ISLs), the switch can connect additional switches to form a Fibre
Channel multi-switch fabric.
The switch provides connectivity for devices manufactured by multiple original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs). To determine if an OEM product can communicate
through connections provided by the switch, or if communication restrictions apply,
refer to the supporting publications for the product or contact your HP marketing
representative.

Introduction
Features
The following sections describe the features of the Edge Switch 2/32:
Error-Detection, Reporting, and Serviceability
The switch provides the following error-detection, reporting, and serviceability
features:
•
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on switch FRUs and adjacent to Fibre Channel
ports that provide visual indicators of hardware status or malfunctions.
•
System and threshold alerts, event logs, audit logs, link incident logs, threshold
alert logs, and hardware logs that display switch, Ethernet link, and Fibre Channel
link status at the HAFM server.
•
Diagnostic software that performs power-on self-tests (POSTs) and port
diagnostics (internal loopback, external loopback, and Fibre Channel (FC)
loopback tests). The FC loopback test applies only when the switch is configured
to operate in S/390 mode.
•
Automatic notification of significant system events (to support personnel or
administrators) through e-mail messages or the call-home feature at the HAFM
server.
•
A modem for use by support personnel to dial-in to the HAFM server for event
notification and to perform remote diagnostics.
•
An RS-232 maintenance port at the rear of the switch (port access is password
protected) that enables installation or service personnel to change the switch’s
internet protocol (IP) address, subnet mask, and gateway address. Or to run
diagnostics and isolate system problems through a local or remote terminal.
•
Redundant FRUs—small form factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, power
supplies, and cooling fans—that are removed or replaced without disrupting
switch or Fibre Channel link operation.
•
A modular design that enables quick removal and replacement of FRUs without
tools or equipment.
•
Concurrent port maintenance—SFPs and fiber-optic cables are removed and
attached to ports without interrupting other ports or director operation.
•
Beaconing to assist service personnel in locating a specific port or switch. When
port beaconing is enabled, the amber LED associated with the port flashes. When
unit beaconing is enabled, the system error indicator on the front panel flashes.
Beaconing does not affect port or switch operation.

Introduction
•
Data collection through the Product Manager application to help isolate system
problems. The data includes a memory dump file and audit, hardware, and
engineering logs.
•
Simple network management protocol (SNMP) management using the Fibre
Alliance MIB that runs on the HAFM server. Up to 12 authorized management
workstations can be configured through the HAFM application to receive
unsolicited SNMP trap messages. The trap messages indicate operational state
changes and failure conditions.
•
SNMP management using the Fibre Channel Fabric Element MIB (Version 1.10),
transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) MIB-II definition (RFC
1213), or a product-specific MIB that run on each switch. Up to 12 authorized
management workstations can be configured through the Product Manager
application to receive unsolicited SNMP trap messages. The trap messages
indicate switch operational state changes and failure conditions.
NOTE: For more information about SNMP support provided by HP products, refer to the hp
StorageWorks SNMP reference guide for director 2/64, edge switch 2/16, and edge switch 2/32.
Zoning
The switch supports a name server zoning feature that partitions attached devices into
restricted-access groups called zones. Devices in the same zone can recognize and
communicate with each other through switched port-to-port connections. Devices in
separate zones cannot communicate with each other.
Zoning is configured by authorizing or restricting access to name server information
associated with device N_Ports that attach to switch fabric ports (F_Ports). A zone
member is specified by the port number to which a device is attached, or by the
eight-byte (16-digit) World Wide Name (WWN) assigned to the host bus adapter
(HBA) or Fibre Channel interface installed in a device. A device can belong to
multiple zones.
CAUTION: If zoning is implemented by port number, a change to the switch fiber-optic
cable configuration disrupts zone operation and may incorrectly include or exclude a
device from a zone.
If zoning is implemented by WWN, removal and replacement of a device HBA or Fibre
Channel interface (thereby changing the device WWN) disrupts zone operation and
may incorrectly include or exclude a device from a zone.
In Open Fabric mode, only zoning by WWN is supported. Zoning by port numbers is
not.
1–4
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
Introduction
Zones are grouped into zone sets. A zone set is a group of zones that is enabled
(activated) or disabled across all switches in a multi-switch fabric. Only one zone set
can be enabled at one time.
Multi-Switch Fabrics
A Fibre Channel topology that consists of one or more interconnected switches or
switch elements is called a fabric. Operational software provides the ability to
interconnect switches (through expansion port (E_Port) connections) to form a
multi-switch fabric. The data transmission path through the fabric is typically
determined by fabric elements and is user-transparent. Subject to zoning restrictions,
devices attached to any interconnected switch can communicate with each other
through the fabric.
Switch Management
These options are available for managing the Edge Switch 2/32 through a user
interface:
•
The Product Manager application installed on an High Availability Fabric
Manager (HAFM) server. Access to the Product Manager must be through the
HAFM applications. These applications are installed on the HAFM server.
•
The Embedded Web Server interface. Using a browser-capable PC with an
internet connection to the switch, you can monitor and manage the switch through
the web server interface embedded in the switch firmware. The interface provides
a GUI similar to the Product Manager application and supports switch
configuration, statistics monitoring, and basic operation.
To launch the Embedded Web Server interface, enter the switches IP address as
the internet uniform resource locator (URL) into any standard browser. Enter a
user name and password at a the login screen. The browser then becomes a
management console. Refer to the web server interface online help for details on
use.
NOTE: The default user name for the right to view status and other information is operator.
The default user name for the right to modify configuration data, perform maintenance tasks, or
perform other options is administrator. The default password for both user names is
password.
•
The command line interface (CLI). The CLI allows you to access many HAFM
and Product Manager functions while entering commands during a Telnet session
with the switch. The primary purpose of the CLI is to automate management of a
large number of switches using scripts. The CLI is not an interactive interface; no

This manual provides details on the Product Manager application for the Edge Switch
2/32 only. Use this manual for the Product Manager installed on an HAFM server.
This manual does not cover the Embedded Web Server interface or CLI.
Field Replaceable Units
The switch provides a modular design that enables quick removal and replacement of
FRUs small form factor pluggable SFP optical transceivers, power supplies, and fans.

SFP Transceivers
A single-mode or multi-mode fiber-optic cable attaches to a port through a pluggable
small form factor (SFP) transceiver. The SFP provides a duplex LC interface, and can
be detached from the switch port for easy replacement. Two fiber-optic transceiver
types are available:
•
Shortwave laser — Shortwave laser SFPs provide short-distance connections (2
to 500 meters) through 50-micron or 62.5-micron multi-mode fiber.
•
Longwave laser — Longwave laser SFPs provide long-distance connections (up
to 10 kilometers) through 9-micron single-mode fiber.
Cooling Fans
Four fans (each a separate FRU) provide cooling for the switch power supplies and the
control processor (CTP) card, as well as redundancy for continued operation if a
single fan fails.
Each fan FRU can be replaced while the switch is operating.
Power Supplies
Redundant, load-sharing power supplies step down and rectify facility input power to
provide 3.3 volts direct current (VDC), 5 VDC, and 12 VDC to the CTP. The power
supplies also provide input filtering, overvoltage protection, and overcurrent
protection. Either power supply can be replaced while the switch is operational.
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
1–7
Introduction
Each power supply has a separate CTP connection to allow for independent AC power
sources. The power supplies are input-rated at 100 to 230 volts alternating current
(VAC).
Power supply requirements are listed in Appendix B.
Connectors and Indicators
Connectors and indicators include the:
•
Initial machine load (IML) button.
•
Ethernet LAN connector.
•
Green power (PWR) and amber system error (ERR) LEDs.
•
Green and amber status LEDs associated with FRUs.
•
RS-232 maintenance port.
Initial Machine Load Button
When the IML button, as shown in Figure 1–2 is pressed and held for three seconds,
the switch performs an IML that takes approximately 30 seconds and resets the:
•
Microprocessor and functional logic for the CTP and loads firmware from
FLASH memory.
•
Ethernet LAN interface, causing the connection to the HAFM server to drop
momentarily until the connection automatically recovers.
•
Ports, causing all Fibre Channel connections to drop momentarily until the
connections automatically recover.
An IML should only be performed if a CTP failure is indicated. Do not IML the
switch unless directed to do so by a procedural step or the next level of support. As a
precaution, the IML button is flush mounted to protect against accidental activation.
Ethernet LAN Connector
The front panel provides a 10/100 megabit per second (Mbps) RJ-45 twisted-pair
connector, as shown in Figure 1–2 that attaches to an Ethernet LAN to provide
communication with the HAFM server or an SNMP management workstation. Two
green LEDs are associated with the LAN connector. When illuminated, the left LED
indicates LAN operation at 10 Mbps, and the right LED indicates LAN operation at
100 Mbps.
1–8
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
Introduction
Power and System Error LEDs
The PWR LED, as shown in Figure 1–2 illuminates when the switch is connected to
facility AC power and powered on. If the LED extinguishes, a facility power source,
power cord, or power distribution failure is indicated.
The ERR LED, as shown in Figure 1–2 illuminates when the switch detects an event
requiring immediate operator attention, such as a FRU failure. The LED remains
illuminated as long as an event is active. The LED extinguishes when the Clear
System Error Light function is selected from the Product Manager application. The
LED blinks if unit beaconing is enabled. An illuminated ERR LED (indicating a
failure) takes precedence over unit beaconing.
FRU Status LEDs
Amber and green LEDs associated with switch FRUs provide status information as
follows:
•
Port SFP — Amber and green LEDs to the left of the port, as shown in
Figure 1–2 illuminate, extinguish, or blink to indicate various port states
(operational with active Fibre Channel traffic, operational but not communicating,
beaconing, blocked, failed, inactive, or running diagnostics).
•
Fan — An amber LED at the lower left corner of each fan, as shown in Figure 1–3
illuminates if the fan fails or rotates too slowly.
•
Power Supply — A green LED at the upper left corner of each power supply, as
shown in Figure 1–3 illuminates if the power supply is operational and receiving
AC power.
Maintenance Port
The rear panel provides a 9-pin RS-232 maintenance port, as shown in Figure 1–3 that
provides a connection for a local terminal or dial-in connection for a remote terminal.
Although the port is typically used by authorized maintenance personnel, operations
personnel can use the port to configure switch network addresses.
Software Diagnostic Features
The switch provides the following diagnostic software features that aid in fault
isolation and repair of problems:
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
1–9
Introduction
•
FRUs provide on-board diagnostic and monitoring circuits that continuously
report FRU status to the HAFM and Product Manager applications. These
applications provide system alerts and logs that display failure and diagnostic
information at the HAFM server or a remote workstation communicating with the
HAFM server.
•
The HAFM Services application that runs as a Windows 2000 service and
provides an additional user interface to display operational status.
•
The Embedded Web Server interface that provides Internet access to isolate
problems for a single switch.
•
Unsolicited SNMP trap messages that indicate operational state changes or
failures can be transmitted to up to 12 authorized management workstations.
•
E-mail messages or call-home reports provide automatic notification of significant
system events to designated support personnel or administrators.
HAFM Server Description
The HAFM server, as shown in Figure 1–4 is a notebook personal computer (PC) that
provides a central point of control for up to 48 LAN-connected directors or Edge
Switches.

Introduction
Although a configured switch operates normally without HAFM server intervention,
an attached server should operate at all times to monitor switch operation, log events
and configuration changes, and report failures.
The HAFM server provides an auto-detecting 10/100 Mbps LAN connection,
provided by an internal Ethernet adapter card. This LAN port attaches to the
customer’s public intranet to allow access from remote user workstations. An optional
Ethernet adapter card (not supplied by HP) can be installed in the personal computer
memory card international association (PCMCIA) slot to provide a connection to a
private LAN segment for dedicated director communication.
Ethernet Hub
The HAFM server and managed directors connect through a rack-mounted 10/100
Base-T Ethernet hub. Figure 1–5 illustrates the optional 12-port hub.

2-5
Installing and Configuring the Edge Switch 2/32
Task 3: Configure Network Information
The edge switch 2/32 is delivered with the following default network addresses:
•
MAC address—the media access control (MAC) address is programmed into
FLASH memory on the CTP card at the time of manufacture. The MAC address is
unique for each switch, and should not be changed. The address is in
xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx format, where xx is a hexadecimal pair.
NOTE: References to the CTP in this manual are to the control processor logic contained on
the switch motherboard. If an event occurs that indicates the CTP as faulty, replacement of the
switch assembly is required.
•
IP address—the factory preset default internet protocol (IP) address is 10.1.1.10.
The default IP address is also 10.1.1.10.
If Reset Configuration is selected from the Product Manager application, the
switch resets to the default address of 10.1.1.10.
If multiple switches are installed on the same LAN, each switch (and the HAFM
server) must have a unique IP address. One switch can use the factory-set address,
but the addresses of the remaining switches must be changed.
NOTE: If you have enabled additional port function with the HP Flexport Feature since the
switch shipped from the factory, resetting the configuration will return this feature to the factory
default of only 16 ports enabled. You must re-enable the additional ports using the Configure
Feature Key dialog box (see “Task 9: Configure Feature Key (Optional)” on page 2–15).
WARNING: This operation resets all configuration including any optional
features that have been installed. You will need to re-enter your feature key to
enable all optional features after resetting the configuration parameters.
2-6
•
Subnet mask—the default subnet mask is 255.0.0.0. If the switch is installed on a
complex public LAN with one or more routers, the address may require change.
•
Gateway address—the default gateway address is 0.0.0.0. If the switch is
installed on a dedicated LAN with no connection through a router, the address
does not require change. If the switch is installed on a public LAN (corporate
intranet), the gateway address must be changed to the address of the corporate
intranet’s local router.

1. Use information under “Switch Parameters” to change settings as required for
parameters in this dialog box.
2. After you change settings, click the Activate button.
Switch Parameters
Configure the following parameters as required by your fabric.
Domain ID
The domain identification is a value between 1 and 31 that provides a unique
identification for the switch in a fabric. An Edge Switch cannot contain the same
domain ID as another switch or their E_Ports will segment when they try to join.
In the Configure Switch Parameters dialog box, a field is provided to enter a
preferred domain ID and a check box is provided to enable this ID as an insistent
domain ID.
2-26
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
Installing and Configuring the Edge Switch 2/32
Preferred
NOTE: To change this value, you must first set the switch offline. Choose Set Online State from
the Maintenance menu to display the Set Online State dialog box, then click the Set Offline
button. Be sure to set the switch back online after you change this value.
Use this field to set the a unique domain ID for the switch. The default value is 1. Set a
value between 1 and 31. When a switch comes online with a preferred ID, it requests
an ID from the fabric’s principal switch (indicating its preferred value as part of the
request). If the requested domain ID is not allocated to the fabric, the domain ID is
assigned to the requesting switch. If the requested domain ID is already allocated, an
unused domain ID is assigned. Note that you must set the switch offline before you
can change to the preferred domain ID.
The preferred domain ID must be unique for each director and switch in a fabric. If
two switches or directors have the same preferred domain ID, the E_Ports segment,
causing the fabric to segment.
For more information on domain ID, refer to the section on domain ID assignment for
multiswitch fabrics in the HP StorageWorks Products in a SAN Environment —
Planning Manual for details.
Insistent
This option is not supported unless the SANtegrity feature is installed. Click the check
box to remove or add a check mark. The default state is disabled (no check mark).
When a check mark displays, the domain ID configured in the Preferred Domain ID
field will become the active domain identification when the fabric initializes. See the
following notes:
•
This option is required if High Availability Fabric Manager (HAFM) is enabled.
•
If you enable Insistent Domain while the switch or director is online, the Preferred
Domain ID will change to the current active domain ID if the IDs are different.
CAUTION: If a switch with a duplicate domain ID exists in the fabric, both switches'
E_Ports will segment when they try to join.
Rerouting Delay
Placing a check mark in the check box to the left of the Rerouting Delay option
enables rerouting delay. This option is only applicable if the configured switch is in a
multiswitch fabric. The default state is disabled.
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
2-27
Installing and Configuring the Edge Switch 2/32
Enabling the rerouting delay ensures that frames are delivered in order through the
fabric to their destination. If there is a change to the fabric topology that creates a new
path (for example, a new switch is added to the fabric), frames may be routed over this
new path if its hop count is less than a previous path with a minimum hop count. This
may result in frames being delivered to a destination out of order since frames sent
over the new, shorter path may arrive ahead of older frames still in route over the older
path.
If rerouting delay is enabled, traffic ceases in the fabric for the time specified in the
E_D_TOV field of the Configure Fabric Parameters dialog box. This delay allows
frames sent on the old path to exit to their destination before new frames begin
traversing the new path.
NOTE: This option is required if High Availability Fabric Manager (HAFM) is enabled.
Domain RSCNs
Domain register for state change notifications (domain RSCNs) are sent between end
devices in a fabric to provide additional connection information to host bus adapters
(HBA) and storage devices. As an example, this information might be that a logical
path has been broken because of a physical event, such as a fiber optic cable being
disconnected from a port. Consult with your HBA and storage device vendor to
determine if enabling Domain RSCNs will cause problems with your HBA or storage
products. Note that this option is required if High Availability Fabric Manager
(HAFM) is enabled.
Operating Mode
NOTE: To change this value, you must first set the switch offline. Select Set Online State from
the Maintenance menu to display the Set Online State dialog box, then click the Set Offline
button. Be sure to set the switch back online after you change this value.
Click either the S/390 or Open Systems radio buttons:
•
2-28
If the FICON Management Server feature is enabled, the default mode will be
S/390. The operating mode cannot be changed to Open Systems with the FICON
Management Server feature enabled. Typically, S/390 mode is used when
attaching an IBM S/390 Parallel Enterprise or IBM zSeries server to the switch
and implementing inband switch management through a Fibre Connection
(FICON) channel.

3. Use information under “Fabric Parameters” to change settings as required for
parameters in this dialog box.
4. After you change settings, click the Activate button.
5. Back up the configuration data when you are finished configuring the switch.
Fabric Parameters
Configure the following parameters as required by your fabric.
BB_Credit
Configure the switch to support buffer to buffer credit (BB_Credit) from 1 through 60.
This is the value used for all ports, except those configured for extended distance
buffering (10-100 km). The default value is 16. For a description of the
buffer-to-buffer credit, refer to the industry specification, Fibre Channel Physical and
Signaling Interface.
2-30
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
Installing and Configuring the Edge Switch 2/32
R_A_TOV
Configure resource allocation time-out value (R_A_TOV) in tenth-of-a-second
increments. This variable works with the error detect time-out value (E_D_TOV)
variable to control the switch’s behavior when an error condition occurs. Resources
are allocated to a circuit when errors are detected and are not released for reuse until
the time set by the R_A_TOV value expires. The default value is 100 tenths (10
seconds). Set a value between 10 tenths and 1200 tenths (1 through 120 seconds).
NOTE: Set the same value for R_A_TOV on all directors and switches in a multiswitch fabric. If
the value is not the same on all units, the fabric segments. Also, the value for R_A_TOV must be
greater than the value configured for E_D_TOV.
E_D_TOV
Adjust the E_D_TOV in tenth-of-a-second increments. An error condition occurs
when an expected response is not received within the time limit set by this value. The
default value is 20 tenths (2 seconds). Set a value between 2 tenths through 600 tenths
(.2 through 60 seconds).
NOTE: Set the same value for E_D_TOV on all switches and directors in a multiswitch fabric. If
the value is not the same, the fabric segments.
Switch Priority
Setting this value determines the principal switch for the multiswitch fabric. Choose
Principal (highest priority), Default, or Never Principal (lowest priority) from the
Switch Priority drop-down list.
Setting these priority values determines the principal switch selected for the
multiswitch fabric. For example, if you have three switches in the fabric and set one as
Principal, one as Default, and one as Never Principal, the unit set to Principal
becomes the principal switch in the fabric.
If all switches are set to Principal or Default, the switch with the highest priority and
the lowest WWN becomes the principal switch. Following are some examples of
principal switch selection when switches have these settings:
•
If you have three switches and set all to Default, the switch with the lowest WWN
becomes the principal switch.
•
If you have three switches and set two to Principal and one to Default, the switch
with the Principal setting that has the lowest WWN becomes the principal switch.
edge switch 2/32 installation guide
2-31
Installing and Configuring the Edge Switch 2/32
•
If you have three switches and set two to Default and one to Never Principal, the
switch with the Default setting and the lowest WWN becomes the principal
switch.
At least one switch in a multiswitch fabric needs to be set as Principal or Default. If
all of the switches are set to Never Principal, all of the interswitch links (ISLs) will
segment. If all but one switch is set to Never Principal and the switch that was
principal goes offline, then all of the other ISLs will segment.
NOTE: We recommend you leave the switch priority setting as Default. If you are considering
setting this value to something other than default, refer to the section on principal switch
selection for multiswitch fabrics in the HP StorageWorks Products in a SAN Environment —
Planning Manual for details.
In, for example, the audit log, you may notice that the Principal setting maps to a
number code of 1, Default maps to a number code of 254, and Never Principal maps
to a number code of 255. The number codes of 2 — 253 are not currently in use.

•
Threshold criteria:
— Percent traffic capacity utilized. This is the percent of the port’s throughput
capacity achieved by the measured throughput. This setting constitutes the
threshold value. For example the value of 50 means that the port’s threshold is
reached when throughput is 50% of capacity.
— Time interval during which throughput is measured and alert notification can
occur.
— The time that the percentage of throughput capacity (% utilization) must exist
during the set time interval before an alert generates.
•

The HAFM server and one or more switches connect through an Ethernet hub
installed on a 10/100 Mbps LAN segment. One hub port is required to connect the
HAFM server, and one hub port is required to connect each switch. A combination of
up to 48 HP products can be configured and managed by a single HAFM server,
therefore multiple hubs may be required to provide sufficient port connections. These
hubs must be connected in accordance with the hub manufacturer’s specifications. HP
recommends using a star or hub-and-spoke topology when connecting multiple hubs.
The HAFM server must be connected to the center hub, and there should never be
more than two hubs between the HAFM server and any switch. Refer to the hub
manufacturer’s documentation for more detailed information.
For instructions to unpack and inspect one or more Ethernet hubs, and install the hubs
in a desktop or rack-mount configuration, refer to the appropriate Ethernet hub
documentation.

Federal Communications Commission Notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and Regulations has
established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an interference-free
radio frequency spectrum. Many electronic devices, including computers, generate RF
energy incidental to their intended function and are, therefore, covered by these rules.
These rules place computers and related peripheral devices into two classes, A and B,
depending upon their intended installation. Class A devices are those that may
reasonably be expected to be installed in a business or commercial environment. Class
B devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a residential
environment (for example, personal computers). The FCC requires devices in both
classes to bear a label indicating the interference potential of the device as well as
additional operating instructions for the user.
The rating label on the device shows the classification (A or B) of the equipment.
Class B devices have an FCC logo or FCC ID on the label. Class A devices do not
have an FCC logo or ID on the label. After the class of the device is determined, refer
