SMART CAT5 SWITCH 16 IP
2. Introduction
The Smart CAT5 Switch 16 IP (Smart 16 IP) from Minicom Advanced Systems
redirects local keyboard, mouse and video data to up to 16 remote servers. All data
is transmitted via IP.
Smart 16 IP features remote KVM access and control via a LAN or Internet
connection. It provides a non-intrusive solution for remote access and control.
Remote access and control software runs on the Smart 16 IP embedded processors
only and not on the servers, so there is no interference with server operation or
impact on network performance.
The Smart 16 IP can also be used in a multi administrator and multi server
environment. Cascade the Smart 16 IP to access up to 256 remote servers. The
Smart 16 IP combines digital remote KVM access via IP networks with a
comprehensive and integrated system management.

Connecting to Ethernet
The Ethernet connector on the Smart 16 IP can be used either for a 100 Mbps
100BASE-TX connection or for a 10 Mbps 10BASE-T connection. The adapter
adjusts to the appropriate operation mode automatically.
16.
10 Mbps Connection
For 10BASE-T Ethernet networks, the Fast Ethernet adapter uses Category 3, 4, or 5
UTP/FTP cable. To establish a 10 Mbps connection, the cable must be connected to
a 10BASE-T hub. Ensure the cable is wired appropriately for a standard 10BASE-T
adapter. Align the RJ-45 plug with the notch on the adapter's connector and insert it
into the adapter's connector.
17.
100 Mbps Connection
For 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet networks, the Smart 16 IP supports Category 5
UTP cabling. To establish a 100 Mbps connection, the cable must be connected to a
100BASE-TX hub.
1. Make sure that the cable is wired appropriately for a standard 100BASE-TX
adapter.
2. Align the RJ-45 plug with the notch on the adapter's connector and insert it into
the adapter's connector.
Note! The UTP/FTP wire pairs and configuration for 100BASE-TX cable are
identical to those for 10BASE-T cable when used with Category 5 UTP/FTP cable.
18.
Connecting the RS232 Serial cable
To operate the Smart 16 IP system with the Control software located on the
Marketing & Documentation CD, connect the RS232 Serial cable.
To connect the RS232 Serial cable:
1.
Connect the cable’s RJ11 connector to the Smart 16 IP’s Service port. See
Appendix A for the Service Connector Pin-out.
2.
Connect the cable’s DB9F connector to the computer’s Serial port.
The figure below illustrates the connections.
