About This Manual
This manual describes the complete line of FriendlyNET 7000 Series Gigabit
Switches. The manual often focuses on two models:
❑
FS7108 — eight-port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet switch
plus one-port Gigabit module
❑
FS7016 — sixteen-port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet switch with two
expansion slots
The FS7108 model is fixed in a single configuration. The FS7016 is an base
unit which may be configured in a variety of ways by adding expansion
modules.
Because the addition of an expansion module to the FS7016 base unit
effectively changes the model number of the unit (as described in “Model
Numbering Convention” on page 1-2), this manual refers to all configurations
deriving from the FS7016 (all models that are 1.5 rack-units high).
Unless otherwise noted, all information provided in this manual is applicable to
all configurations within the 7000 Series family of FriendlyNET Switches.
This manual also describes three optional slide-in modules:
❑
Gigabit SX XP Module — one-port 1000Base-SX expansion module

Switching Technology
This section provides a brief overview of switching technology, including Fast
Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet.
An Ethernet switch is a device that can direct network traffic among several
Ethernet and Fast Ethernet networks. A switch increases network capacity and
decreases network loading by making it possible for a LAN to be divided into
multiple, unique dedicated segments.
In Fast Ethernet networks, a switch allows chaining of hubs beyond the “tworepeater limit.” A switch can be used to separate the network into different
collision domains, which allows expansion beyond the 205 meter diameter limit
for 100Base-TX networks.
Switch Acts as a Bridge Between Network Segments
A switch acts as a high-speed selective bridge between individual segments.
Traffic that needs to go from one segment to another is automatically forwarded
by a switch, without interfering with any other segments. This allows the total
network capacity to be multiplied while decreasing network loading.
Page 1-4
Switching Technology
To ensure network reliability, a switch monitors each of its ports for signal
quality. The switch automatically disconnects stations transmitting excessive
noise, then reconnects them when the problem is resolved. A switch also
automatically drops data packets that exceed the maximum allowable length.
This prevents a device from blocking the network by transmitting continuous
data streams or extra-long packets.
The FriendlyNET 7000 Series Switch supports store-and-forward switching. If
the speeds are different, such as for a 10Mbps workstation connected to a
100Mbps server, the switch will buffer and read the entire packet, perform a
data validity check, then forward the packet at the new speed.
The FS7000 Series utilizes an advanced third generation switching engine. It
features high port count in a high integration package. For wire speed
performance, the 7108 features a 2.4Gbps bus, while the 7016 base unit has a
9.6Gbps cross-bar bus to support its higher port count configurations.
Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet Technology
As the volume of network traffic increases, the bandwidth offered by a typical
10Mbps Ethernet network quickly becomes inadequate to maintain acceptable
performance for a growing number of desktop/server computing environments.
Fast Ethernet, or 100Base-T, provides a smooth, non-disruptive evolution from
10Base-T technology.
The growing use of Fast Ethernet connections to servers and desktops is
creating a clear need for an even higher-speed network technology at the
backbone and server level. Gigabit Ethernet follows the same form, fit and
function as its 10Mbps and 100Mbps Ethernet precursors, allowing a
straightforward, incremental migration to higher-speed networking. This
evolutionary upgrade path allows Gigabit Ethernet to be seamlessly integrated
into existing Ethernet and Fast Ethernet networks.
All of today’s internetworking technologies are fully compatible with Gigabit
Ethernet, just as they are with Ethernet and Fast Ethernet. All three Ethernet
speeds use the same IEEE 802.3 frame format, full-duplex operation and flow
control methods. In half-duplex mode, Gigabit Ethernet employs the same
fundamental CSMA/CD access method to resolve contention for the shared
media. And, Gigabit Ethernet uses the same management objects defined by the
IEEE 802.3 group. Gigabit Ethernet is Ethernet, only faster.
Asanté FriendlyNET 7000 Series Switches support not only traditional
10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet, but also Gigabit Ethernet, and
are ideal for bridging them without the need for a separate device.

Components
This section describes the front- and back-panel layouts of the FS7108 and
FS7016 Switches.
The only control on the front panel is the uplink push-button switch. The only
control on the rear panel is the power switch. The LED indicators are described
in detail in Chapter 3.
The uplink push-button switch is connected to a single port on each Switch. In
Normal position, the port associated with the uplink switch operates like any
other port on the unit. When the uplink push-button is in the depressed
position, the port associated with the uplink switch becomes an uplink port and
eliminates the need for a crossover cable.
FS7108
The front panel of the FS7108 contains eight 10/100Mbps ports, one Gigabit
Ethernet port, one uplink switch button, and LED indicators. See Figure 2-1.

100 FX MII Module
◆
Note: Each 10/100 expansion module provides 8 ports
which are numbered 1 through 8. If the module is installed
in Option Slot A, the ports on the module will correspond
to LED indicators A1–A8. If the module is installed in
Option Slot B, the ports on the module will correspond to
LED indicators B1–B8.
100 FX MII Module
All FriendlyNET 7000 Series Gigabit Switches include one Media Independent
Interface (MII) slot on the rear panel of the unit which allows for connection to
100Base-FX media.
The Asanté 100 FX MII Module is sold separately and complies with IEEE
802.3 and 802.3u (10/100Base-T and 100Base-FX) specifications. The module
is equipped with a 100Base-FX Fiber SC connector and can easily be installed
in the MII slot of FS7000 Series Switches.
▲
Important: When an MII module is installed, one of the
10/100Mbps ports becomes disabled. The 8th switching
port on FS7108 models, or the 16th switching port on
FS7x16 models, is shared with the MII Module. When an
MII Module is plugged in, it has priority for that port.
▲
Important: MII modules are hot-swappable; you can
install and/or remove the module without turning the
switch’s power off.
To install a 100 FX MII module:
1
Unscrew the metal cover from the front of the MII slot

Cabling Requirements
This section describes the type of cabling required for various types of
connections.
100Base-TX requires the use of data-grade Category 5 UTP (unshielded
twisted-pair) cable. Category 3 wiring may be used for 10Base-T.
▲
Important! Some installations have Category 5 cabling but
do not have wall outlets and/or wiring closet punch-down
blocks that meet Category 5 requirements.
▲
Important! 100Base-TX requires that all wiring and accessories meet EIA/TIA 568 specifications for proper operation. When wiring a 100Base-TX network, make sure that
the entire cable plant meets specifications.
1000Base-SX (via Gigabit module) requires dual 62.5/125 micron gradedindex multimode fiber-optic cable with an SC connector.
100Base-FX (via MII module) requires dual 62.5/125 micron graded-index
multimode fiber-optic cable with an SC connector.

❑
Use a straight-through twisted pair cable or a crossover cable when
appropriate for either uplink or standard data ports
❑
When connecting two switches together (cascading switches), make
sure that the link between them is no longer than 100 meters
❑
Network cable segments can be connected to, or disconnected from,
the Switch while the Switch’s power is on
Connecting a Computer to the Switch

Make sure that the Switch and the device on the other end are both powered on.
Make sure the link light is on (enabled) for the device on the other end of
the cable.
Make sure that the device on the other end is a 10/100 TX device.
Make sure the proper type of cabling is used between the device and the
Switch. (See “Cabling Requirements” on page 2- 8.)
Make sure the correct cable is connected between the Switch and the network device.
Make sure the cable does not exceed 100 meters.
Push the Uplink button again.
Slow performance
Make sure the duplex mode on both ends of the link connection is configured to the same mode (half- or full-duplex).
If your adapter card supports NWay auto-negotiation, make sure the
driver also supports full-duplex mode.
