Product Overview
Introduction
5× 10/100/1000Base-T port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with
Broadcast Storm Control
Live-GSH5T Gigabit Ethernet Switch is an auto-sensing and auto-negotiating Gigabit Ethernet
Switch with Broadcast Storm Control capability. Its five 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit ports provide
10/100/1000Mbps connections to PC with gigabit cards or gigabit switches
Live-GSH5T’s unique switching fabric provides non-blocking full wire speed for all ports. Auto
MDI/MDIX function is provided for conventional uplinking to another switch/hub using ordinary
straight-through cable. Each port provides up to 2000Mbps in full duplex mode. With its
auto-sensing, Live-GSH5T automatically detects the speed of the devices you plug into, and routes
the incoming data to its destination. Its auto-negotiating function allows existing devices running at
different speeds to communicate easily within the same network.
Broadcast Storm Control
The Live-GSH5T automatically filters out the broadcast traffic when the broadcast packets exceed
5% of the total traffic. Broadcast storm can significantly impede the performance of the network.
The Live-GSH5T protects your network from such situations.
Store-and-Forward Architecture against Packet Loss
When network is under heavy traffic, the shared memory buffer in the switching devices might yield
incorrect detections due to overfed memory buffer. This setback can happen either when data is
transmitted in IEEE802.3x Full Duplex or Back Pressure Flow Control mode. To solve this problem,
Live-GSH5T utilizes a fixed memory buffer allocation with Store-and-forward transmission to
ensure an effective buffer allocation for each port.
Store-and-forward transmission controls data flow from transmitting to receiving nodes with the
receiving buffer threshold adjusted to an optimal value, thus guaranteeing against all possible packet
losses.
Active Flow Control
Live-GSH5T Gigabit Ethernet Switch implements in full duplex mode a flow control that is
compliant to IEEE 802.3x standard. While in half duplex mode, it employs an optional Back
1
Live-GSH5T Gigabit Ethernet Switch
1 Product Overview
Pressure Flow Control to stall the incoming data when port buffers are saturated. With this flow
control mechanism, it can be ensured that frames dropped during transmission are reduced to a
minimum.
Non-blocking Wire Speed
Live-GSH5T’s non-blocking cross-bar matrix architecture provides high-end performance for
departmental and workgroup environments at a fraction of the cost of similar devices. Typically,
this type of architecture was found only in high-end switches designed to handle huge corporate
networks. With bandwidth needs and network efficiency concerns, Live-GSH5T’s switching fabric
design is the perfect answer for solution.
System/Port Status Information at a Glance
There are 2 sets of LEDs on the front panel: System LED and Station port LEDs,. The System LEDs
consist of the Power LED, the BCST(Broadcast Storm Control)/Diag and OvUn_Flow LED.
The station LEDs consist of the 10M Link/Act, 100M Link/Act, 1000M Link/Act
What’s Broadcast Storm Control
Broadcast Storm is the result of too much broadcast traffic in the network. Broadcast packets are
sent to every stations in the network, thus increase the overall network traffic. Broadcast storm are
likely to decrease the network performance significantly. Broadcast Storm occurs usually when
there is a loop formed in the network or when a particular application creates unordinary amount of
broadcast packets. The Live-GSH5T has built-in broadcast storm control which filter out the
broadcast traffic when it exceeds 5% of total traffic.
Solution for the digital media age
In the age of digital media, the computer has become the storage center for DV, DVD video, and
digital pictures. Furthermore, the majority of the worldwide TV format will turn to HDTV and other
digital standard in the next few years. The demand for faster network will increase dramatically.
Gigabit Ethernet will make playing DVD quality video over the network a reality. In addition, copy
Gigabytes of data over network will no longer be a time consuming process. With the Live Series
Gigabit Ethernet switch, building a network capable of fast large file sharing and real time play back
of high quality audio/video is simple and affordable.
Why Copper-wired Gigabit Connection?
With the tremendous success of Ethernet in LAN, twisted-pair cable has become the most
ubiquitous networking media all over the world. It also costs less than the fiber-optic cable. Thus, it
is very convenient to choose a copper-wired gigabit switch such as Live-GSH5T, since you can
easily set up a gigabit backbone using the kind of twisted-pair cable so ordinarily used in
10/100BASE-TX environment.

Straight-through cabling requirements
Under most conditions, the 5 station ports on the Switch accept normal, straight-through cables, i.e.,
standard UTP/STP cables, which are the only ones that can be used with a RJ-45 pin layout.
Normally, 10BASE-T networks require a straight-through Cat. 3, 4, 5 UTP/STP cabling system.
The cabling system could be found in most existing Ethernet network installations.
100/1000BASE-T networks require Cat. 5 UTP/STP cabling system. The pin assignments for a
straight-through cable are shown in Figure 3-5 and 3-6.

3 Installation of the Switch
The 10/100/1000BASE-T port can automatically determine whether or not it needs to cross over
between pairs as shown in Table 3-2 below. Therefore, the ports do not require crossover cables
when connecting to another Switch.
If Live-GSH5T interoperates with a device that cannot automatically correct for crossover, it makes
the necessary adjustment prior to commencing auto-negotiation. If it interoperates with a device that
implements MDI/MDIX crossover, a random algorithm as described in IEEE 802.3 section 40.4.4
determines which device performs the crossover.

your workgroup/departmental traffic within Ethernet/Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet.
The following section will introduce to you the basics of network connectivity in virtual workgroup
computing within Ethernet/Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet environment.
Connectivity Rules
10 Mbps Connection (10BASE-T)
Ethernet connection should be configured according to the following connectivity rules:
•
The maximum length for UTP cables must not exceed 100 meters from end station to a
shared-access 10BASE-T hub.
•
Between any two end stations in a collision domain, there may be up to five cable segments and
four intermediate repeaters at most.
•
If there is a path between any two end-stations containing five segments and four repeaters, then
at least two of the cable segments must be point-to-point link segments (e.g. 10BASE-T or
10BASE-5), while the remaining segments may be of mixed segments (e.g.: 10BASE-2 or
10BASE-5).
Copper-wired 100/1000 Mbps Connection (100/1000BASE-T)
Copper-wired Fast Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet connection should be configured according to the
following connectivity rules:
•
The maximum length for STP/UTP cable is 100 meters from end station and a shared-access
100BASE-TX hub.
•
The maximum cable length is 100 meters between end station and switch/repeater; and 100
meters between switch and switch/repeater, thus making possible a maximum distance of 300
meters between two end stations.
Connecting to another Switch/Hub
Straight-through Cable Connection
Because the switch is equipped with auto-MDI/MDIX function for every port, users can use
straight-thru cable for any type of connection. There is no need for crossover cables.

Power LED
Power LED will give a solid green light when you turn on the Switch, and will be off when the
Switch being turned off. You can simply check the Power LED to see if the Switch is being
activated. Before turning on the Switch, please verify that the power cord has been properly
connected to the Switch and the power outlet on the wall.
Diagnostic LEDs
The Diagnostic LEDs help you to troubleshoot the network problem.
BCST/DIAG LED
The BCST/DIAG has two functions:
Power-On Diagnostic Test:
When the switch is powered on, the system will perform a power-on diagnostic test. Under
normal condition, the BCST/DIAG will flash once and remain off. If the LED remained lit after
several seconds, then the switch might fail the power-on test.
Broadcast Storm Control
When broadcast traffic exceeds 5% of total traffic. The BCST/DIAG LED will keep on
flashing to indicate that the switch is filtering out the broadcast packets. The light will be off
when the broadcast traffic is below 5% again.
Gigabit Port LEDs (for Port #1 ~ 5)
10M/100M/1000M Link/Act LED
Link/Act LED giving a solid green light indicates that a full duplex data link has been established
between the corresponding port and the device. If the connection is faulty, it will be off. While the
port is transmitting or receiving data, you will see a blinking light.
Green 10M Link/ACT: A 10Mbps connection has been made

Appendix B Troubleshooting
Appendix B Troubleshooting
This appendix contains specific information to help you identify and solve problems.
If your switch does not function properly, please make sure it is set up according to
the instructions on the manual.
If you suspect your switch is not connected correctly to your network, check the
following points before you contact your local dealer for support.

Make sure the Power is ON (Check the Power LED).
Make sure the cable is connected properly on both ends.
Make sure that the maximum cable length between switch and end node
does not exceed 100 meters (for 10/100/1000BASE-TX connection).
Make sure that the maximum switch-to-hub/switch cable distance does not
exceed 100 meters (for 10/100/1000BASE-TX connection).
Verify that the cabling type used is correct.
Check the corresponding 10M/100M/1000M Link/ACT. If one of them do
not light up, that means a faulty connection. Check the status of the cable
attachment. If the problem persists, try a different cable.
Try another port on the Switch.
Turn off power supply to the Switch. After a while, turn it on again to see if
it resumes to its normal function.
If you find out where the problem is but cannot solve it by yourself, or you
simply cannot locate what is at fault, please contact your local dealer for
technical support.
