SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
THE GPIM-01 AND GPIM-09 GIGABIT ETHERNET 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.
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.

1.1
OVERVIEW
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch, shown in Figure 1-1, is an Ethernet interface module for the
Cabletron Systems 6C105 chassis. The 6E233-49 has 48 switched ports via four RJ21 connectors,
and 1 slot for an optional High Speed Interface Module (HSIM).
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch can be used to connect individual high-bandwidth user devices, such
as workstations, or to provide a central switching point for multiple 10 Mbps Ethernet segments.
The optional HSIMs provide one or more high speed uplinks to networking technologies such as
Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), Wide Area Network
(WAN) and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). The ESX-1620 is not capable of supporting
VHSIMs.
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch ports can be configured to control frame traffic several ways,
including prioritizing traffic flow according to protocol type. The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch can also
be configured to establish Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) and control the flow of frames
associated with each VLAN according to priority and Ether type. Detailed information about
VLANs is provided in the Cabletron Systems 802.1Q VLAN User’s Guide.
The following sections describe the features of the 6E233-49 SmartSwitch and concludes with
information on how to obtain assistance from Cabletron Systems.

The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch
Introduction
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Overview
1.1.1
Connectivity
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch connects to Ethernet networks or workstations through the four RJ21
connectors on the front panel. These ports support Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables with an
impedance between 85 and 111 ohms at lengths up to 100 meters. These ports are IEEE 802.3u
10BASE-TX compliant.
The 6E233-49 has a slot for an optional HSIM to provide additional connectivity to various
networking technologies.
1.1.2
Auto-Negotiation
The front panel ports on the 6E233-49 SmartSwitch module have the ability to auto-negotiate the
type of connection required to provide a link to another device. During Auto-Negotiation, two
devices automatically exchange information “telling” each other what their operating capabilities
are. The Auto-Negotiation feature targets the maximum capabilities that can be reached between
the two devices.
When Auto-Negotiation is supported at both ends of a link, the two devices dynamically adjust to
full or half duplex operation based on the maximum capability that can be reached between the
two devices. If the device connected to the 6E233-49 SmartSwitch cannot auto-negotiate, the
6E233-49 SmartSwitch interface operates according to the capabilities of the other device.
1.1.3
Runtime IP Address Discovery
This feature enables the module to automatically accept an IP address from a Boot Strap Protocol
(BootP) server on the network into NVRAM without requiring a user to enter an IP address
through Local Management.
When the module is connected to the network and powered up, Runtime IP Address Discovery
(RAD) checks the module for an IP address. If one has not yet been assigned (module and 6C105
chassis IP address set to 0.0.0.0), RAD checks to see if any of the module interfaces have a link. If
so, RAD sends out Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) and BootP requests to obtain an
IP address from a RARP or BootP server on the network.
The RAD requests start out at an interval of one second. The interval then doubles after every
transmission until an interval of 300 seconds is reached. At this point, the interval remains at 300
seconds. The RAD requests continue until an IP address is received from a RARP or BootP server,
or an IP address is entered using Local Management.
The module will reboot after RAD is successful.

Overview
1.1.4
Full Duplex Switched Ethernet
Each switched Ethernet port on the 6E233-49 SmartSwitch can be configured to operate in Full
Duplex Switched Ethernet (FDSE) mode. FDSE allows each port to provide up to 20 Mbps of
bandwidth.
1.1.5
SmartTrunk
SmartTrunk, also referred to as SmartTrunking, is Cabletron Systems’ terminology for load
balancing or load sharing. SmartTrunk technology provides an easy-to-implement mechanism to
group, or aggregate, multiple links of any technology together to scale the backbone bandwidth
beyond the limitations of a single link. All links are user-configurable so administrators can scale
the backbone bandwidth by adding SmartTrunk links. The benefits of SmartTrunking include the
following:
•
All purchased bandwidth is used.
•
Distributed, resilient links increase reliability and performance.
•
Multiple technologies are supported within a single trunk for maximum flexibility.
NOTE
1.1.6
For information on SmartTrunk configuration, refer to the Cabletron Systems
SmartTrunk User’s Guide.
Remote Monitoring (RMON)
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch supports all nine Ethernet RMON groups, which include Statistics,
Alarms, Events and History. These groups are enabled on all ports by default.
Cabletron Systems RMON Actions is a vendor-specific extension of RMON and provides the
ability to set an “Action” on any SNMP MIB variable. The Action can be triggered by any RMON
Event and/or Alarm. An example of an Action would be to turn off a MIB-2 interface if a
broadcast threshold is crossed.
1.1.7
Broadcast Suppression
Broadcast Suppression enables a user to set a desired limit of receive broadcast frames per port/per
second to be forwarded out the other ports on the module up to the set limit. Any broadcast frames
above this specified limit are dropped. In the event that broadcast frames are being suppressed,
multicast and unicast frames continue to be switched.

Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Overview
1.1.8
Port/VLAN Redirect Functions
The port redirect function, also referred to as “Port Mirroring,” is a troubleshooting tool used to
map traffic from a single source port to a single destination port within the device. This feature
allows frames, including those with errors to be copied and sent to an analyzer or RMON probe.
The analyzer or RMON probe will see the data as if it were directly connected to the LAN segment
of the source port.
The VLAN redirect function is similar to the port redirect function except that the frames received
by the device are redirected to a designated destination port according to the VLAN classification
of the frames received. The VLAN redirect function does not support redirecting errors, and is
only supported when the device is operating as an 802.1Q switch. Multiple VLANs can be directed
to the same ports.
1.1.9
Rate Limiting
The Rate Limiting feature enables the SmartSwitch device to have control of traffic rates on a
per-port, per-priority basis. The network administrator can configure a rate limit (from 100 kbps to
1 Gbps) for a given port with an associated list of IEEE 802.1p priorities (which can include one,
some, or all of the eight priority levels defined in 802.1p). Each rate limit is specified as an
inbound or an outbound limit. The combined rate of all traffic on the port that matches the listed
priorities cannot exceed the programmed limit. If the rate exceeds the defined limit, frames are
dropped until the rate falls below the limit.
Administrators can configure up to four rate limit rules per port; however, each rule must not
include conflicting 802.1p priority values. In order to control traffic inbound and outbound on the
same port, two rate limit rules must be configured (one inbound and one outbound). Since the rate
limiting operation occurs after the processing of the multi-layer classification rules, the two
features can be combined to provide application-aware rate limiting.
This traffic rate function is not supported on ports configured as SmartTrunk ports.
NOTE
For more information about the application of the Rate Limiting function, refer to the Local
Management User’s Guide.

Overview
1.1.10 GARP Switch Operation
Some or all ports on the switch may be activated to operate under the Generic Attribute
Registration Protocol (GARP) applications, GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP) and/or
GARP Multicast Registration Protocol (GMRP).
GARP is a protocol, or set of rules, that outlines a mechanism for propagating the port state and/or
user information throughout a bridged LAN to keep track of users and VLANs on the network
fabric. MAC bridges and end users alike can take part in the registration and de-registration of
GARP attributes such as VLAN and multicast group membership. For more details on how GVRP
and GMRP handle frames under GARP, and how to configure the switch ports to take advantage of
this operation, refer to the SmartSwitch Series 6H202, 6H203, 6H252, 6H253, 6H258, 6H259,
6H262, 6E233, and 6E253 Local Management User’s Guide.
1.1.11 802.1 Port Priority
IEEE 802.1 port priority is incorporated in the IEEE 802.1D standard. It is used to assign a default
priority to the frames received without priority information in their tag header, to map prioritized
frames to the appropriate transmit queues, and to prioritize frames according to protocol type.
1.1.12 Management
Management of the 6E233-49 SmartSwitch module and 6C105 chassis is accomplished using
Local Management application or remote SNMP management stations. Local Management is
accessible through the RS232 COM port on the front panel using a local VT100 terminal, or a
remote VT100 terminal via a modem connection, and in-band via a Telnet connection. In-band
remote management is possible through any SNMP compliant Network Management Software.
Local Management, as described in this user’s guide, provides the ability to manage the 6E233-49.
Local Management information for non-Ethernet HSIMs or VHSIMs is included in their
respective user’s guide. For details on how to get manuals, refer to the Related Manuals section in
the About This Guide section.
1.1.13 Switching Options
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch provides 802.1Q switching or SecureFast Switching Virtual Network
Services between all of the front panel interfaces including any optional HSIMs. In the 802.1Q
mode (the default mode of operation), the switch functions as an 802.1D switch until VLANs are
configured. SecureFast switching and IEEE 802.1Q switching allow migration to Virtual Network
technologies without requiring the replacement of existing equipment.

Overview
1.1.14 Distributed Chassis Management
From a management perspective, the 6C105 SmartSwitch 6000 chassis can be viewed as a single
entity with a single IP address. Its systems management functions are distributed to all modules.
The chassis can be managed using a single IP address, or the modules can be managed separately
by individual IP addresses. When using a single IP address, system wide settings can be done from
the chassis menu in Local Management, while module settings are done by selecting the specific
module to be modified and changing the settings for that module.
1.1.15 Optional HSIMs
The 6E233-49 provides a slot for an optional High Speed Interface Module (HSIM) for additional
connectivity to various networking technologies. Any exceptions to the HSIMs that operate in the
6E233-49 SmartSwitch are listed in the Release Notes. The 6E233-49 is not capable of supporting
VHSIMs.
1.1.16 Standards Compatibility
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3, 802.3x, 802.3u, 802.1D, and
especially 802.1Q standards. The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch provides IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree
Algorithm (STA) support to enhance the overall reliability of the network and protect against
“loop” conditions. The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch supports a wide variety of industry standard MIBs
including RFC 1213 (MIB II), RFC 1757 (RMON), RFC 1493 (Bridge MIB), RFC 1354 (FIB
MIB) and RFC 1190 (Path MTU Discovery). A full suite of Cabletron Systems Enterprise MIBs
provide a wide array of statistical information to enhance troubleshooting. For information on how
to extract and compile individual MIBs, contact Cabletron Systems.
1.1.17 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. Chapter 4 provides details
about the 6E233-49 SmartSwitch LANVIEW LEDs.
1.1.18 Year 2000 Compliance
The 6E233-49 SmartSwitch module and 6C105 chassis have an internal clock that can maintain
the time and date beyond the year 1999.

Module Mode Switch Location/Component Layout
Switch definitions and positions are as follows:
•
Switches 1 through 4 – For Cabletron Systems use only.
•
Switch 5 – COM Port Autobaud. The default (OFF) position enables Autobaud sensing on the
COM port for Local Management sessions. Changing the switch to the ON position disables
Autobaud sensing and sets the COM port to 9600 baud for Local Management sessions.
•
Switch 6 – Forced BootP. Changing the position of this switch (i.e., moving the switch from one
position to the other) clears download information from NVRAM and forces the SmartSwitch
to download a new image file from a BootP server after power to the chassis is restored.
NOTE
After changing the position of switch 6, DO NOT reapply power to the chassis until there
is a station acting as a BootP server, which contains the image file.
•
After changing the position of switch 6 and restarting the module, the SmartSwitch requests a
new image download until they either receive a new image or the RESET button on the front
panel is pressed. When the RESET button is pressed, the SmartSwitch continues trying to
contact a BootP server, but will time out in approximately one minute. If the module times out,
the image is downloaded from its FLASH memory.
•
Switch 7 – Clear NVRAM. Changing the position of this switch resets NVRAM on the next
power up. ALL user entered parameters, such as IP addresses, subnet masks, SNMP traps, and
switching functions are restored to their factory default settings.

Switch 8 – Reset Password/Community Strings. Changing the position of this switch clears
only the user-entered passwords stored in NVRAM, and restores the default passwords. Once
the SmartSwitch resets, the passwords can either be reentered or the default passwords (Public
and ENTER) may be used.
NOTE
B.3
Do not change the position of switch 8 unless it is necessary to reset the module
super-user configured passwords to their factory default settings.
SIMM UPGRADE
