1 Introduction
Card Status LEDs
The lower part of the MR9600-100’s front panel contains 16 two-color LED indicators, one for each card
slot in the CC9600 chassis. The slots are numbered 1 through 16 from left to right. The LEDs indicate the
state of the device cards installed in the CC9600 chassis. When the MR9600-100 is turned on, the lights go
through the following sequence before they act as status indicators for the device cards.
1.
The LEDs on the right side turn red and then turn green when the right SIMM passes its memory
test.
2.
The LEDs on the left side turn red and then turn green when the left SIMM passes its memory test.
3.
The LEDs stay green for about five seconds while the flash boot code waits for a handshake sequence
on the diagnostic serial port.
4.
If none is detected (this is normal unless the firmware is being updated through the diagnostic port)
the main controller code starts running and the LEDs are turned off.
5.
The LEDs are turned on and off, one at a time, red and green.
6.
All LEDs turn green while the system starts up.
7.
After the system has started, the LEDs reflect the status of the device cards. Each LED will be in one
of the following states, depending on the device card.

100BASE-TX Technology Overview
100M bps Fast Ethernet is a relatively new standard specified by the IEEE 802.3 LAN committee. It is an
extension of the 10Mbps Ethernet standard with the ability to transmit and receive data at 100Mbps, while
maintaining the CSMA/CD Ethernet protocol. Since 100Mbps Fast Ethernet is compatible with all 10Mbps
Ethernet environments, it provides a straight-forward upgrade without wasting your investment in
hardware, software, and personnel training.
The MR9600-100 provides an easy, affordable, high-performance, seamless, and standards-based
migration path to a 100BASE-TX LAN while preserving your initial investment and use of 10Mbps
Ethernet LANs.
The MR9600-100 complies with IEEE802.3u, 100BASE-TX, IEEE 802.3 and 10BASE-T standards. The
MR9600-100 has five 10Mbps twisted-pair ports and two 100Mbps twisted-pair ports. The MR9600-100
provides a store-and-forward token passing scheme. Filtering and forwarding rates for the MR9600-100
run at wire-speed, reducing latency within and across segments.
Cables and Connectors
The MR9600-100 supports Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cables. Cat 5 UTP cable uses the
same RJ-45 connector used with 10BASE-T, wired in the same configuration. Please note that the punchdown blocks in the wiring closet must also be Category 5 certified. Where these blocks do not meet the
standard, an upgrade is necessary.
Topology
A Fast Ethernet workgroup is configured in a star topology and is built around a maximum of two
repeaters. Each workgroup forms a separate LAN (also known as a “segment” or “collision domain”), and
these workgroups can be easily interconnected through switches, bridges, or routers to form one LAN
large enough to encompass a high-rise building or campus environment. Recent innovations in LAN hub
6
CommPlete Communications Server
1 Introduction
technology such as stackable hubs, coupled with the decreasing cost of switches, bridges, and routers,
allow the design of low-cost, efficient Fast Ethernet workgroups and enterprise LANs.
The following factors strongly influence the architecture of Fast Ethernet networks:
• The EIA/TIA 568 Wiring Standard imposes a 100 meter limit on horizontal runs of twisted-pair cables;
that is, connections from the wiring closet to the end-station.
• Fast Ethernet’s increased operational speed reduces the maximum distance between all elements of the
LAN (see below).
• The EIA/TIA 568 Wiring Standard does not support the use of coaxial cables for horizontal wiring.
Network
The network diameter, which is the distance between two end-stations in the same collision domain, is the
primary difference between traditional Ethernet and Fast Ethernet. Due to the increased speed in Fast
Ethernet and adherence to the EIA/TIA 568 wiring rules, the network diameter of a Fast Ethernet collision
domain is limited to 205 meters; in contrast, the maximum 10BASE-T Ethernet collision domain diameter
can be up to 2500 meters.
Hubs
While 10BASE-T hubs are all functionally identical, Fast Ethernet hubs are divided into two distinct types:
Class I and Class II. A Class I hub repeats all incoming signals on one port to the other ports by first
translating them to digital signals and then retranslating them back to line signals. These translations are
necessary when connecting various network media to the same collision domain, such as when combining
two wire-pair 100BASE-TX media with four wire-pair 100BASE-T4 media. Only one Class I hub can exist
within the same collision domain, thus this type of hub cannot be cascaded. A Class II Hub (or
“repeater”), on the other hand, immediately repeats all incoming line signals on one port to the other
ports; no translations are performed. This type of hub connects identical media to the same collision
domain; for example, TX to TX. At most, two Class II hubs can exist within the same collision domain.
The cable used to cascade these hubs is called an inter-repeater link (IRL).
As mentioned earlier, stackable hubs can be used to increase the number of available nodes in a collision
domain. An entire hub stack counts as a single hub (repeater).
Connectivity Rules
• The maximum length of a twisted-pair segment (that is, distance between a port in the hub to a singleaddress network device such as a PC, server, or LAN switch) is 100 meters.
• The maximum diameter in a collision domain is about 205 meters using two Class II hubs (or hub
stacks) and 200 meters using one Class I hub.
• Between any two end-stations in a collision domain, there may be up to three segments and two Class
II hubs or two segments and one Class I hub.
Switching Technology
Switching is fast becoming the industry standard for pushing the limits of existing Ethernet networks. A
switch bridges Ethernet packets between Ethernet and Fast Ethernet LAN segments at the MAC address
level of the Ethernet protocol.
CommPlete Communications Server
7
MR9600-100 User Guide
The difference between switched Ethernet (10Mbps, 100Mbps, or both) and traditional Ethernet is
analogous to the difference between a private phone line and a party line. With switched Ethernet, each
workgroup has a “private line” so that transmitted packets don’t have to wait as long to gain access to the
network. When connected to a switched port, each Ethernet segment has full “wire-speed” access, so a
switch effectively divides a single Ethernet LAN into bridged multiple LAN segments. Each segment can
support a workgroup or even provide a dedicated connection for a key workstation or server. The result of
dividing an Ethernet LAN into multiple segments is a multiplication of internal bandwidth available to all
stations on the LAN and a reduction in latency rates during peak-use periods.
Benefits of Switching
Ethernet switching technology drastically increases the total bandwidth of a LAN. It also provides
configuration flexibility to local workgroups which allows the network administrator to better control how
network resources are distributed against network load. Switching helps reduce the congestion problems
inherent in the contention-oriented CSMA/CD protocol, thereby improving network response during high
utilization periods.
Also, currently popular distributed client/server applications often require higher bandwidth and tighter
client-to-server integration. Legacy 10Mbps Ethernet often is unable to provide a sufficiently
sophisticated platform for users to be able to take full advantage of such client/server applications.
Fast Ethernet switching not only satisfies both technical and business needs, it also preserves the current
investment in the huge 10BASE-T Ethernet installed base. Compatibility with 10Mbps Ethernet ensures
that users will be able to migrate to Fast Ethernet at a pace appropriate to their installation and needs.
10/100 Switching Technology
An integral extension of Fast Ethernet, 10/100 switching provides not only a 100Mbps high-speed
connection for carrying aggregated 10Mbps traffic, it also handles the necessary conversion of the MAC
layer between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX. Combining Fast Ethernet and switching technologies provides
both bandwidth for local workgroups and a high-speed link to carry local traffic elsewhere in the network.

Installation Procedure
1.
Unpack the MR9600-100 assembly from its packaging, and save the packaging for possible future
use. Perform a visual inspection of the MR9600-100. If you are concerned about the condition of the
MR9600-100, call Technical Support for instructions.
2.
Remove the blank controller panel or previous MR9600-100 controller from the CC9600 chassis. The
MR9600-100 is hot-swappable.
3.
Holding the MR9600-100 by its handle and the edges of the bottom panel, place the MR9600-100
into the open controller slot of the CC9600. Make sure the edges of the MR9600-100 card mate
properly with the plastic guides in the CC9600.
4.
Slide the MR9600-100 into the CC9600 chassis until you feel the MR9600-100’s connectors fit into
the bus connectors at the back of the CC9600.
5.
Tighten the MR9600-100's retaining screws.
6.
Turn on the PS9600 power supplies, if they are off.
7.
Note the PS9600 LED indicators. If they are not lit, see Chapter 6. If they are lit, proceed with
MultiModemManager operation (Chapter 4 of the MultiModemManager User Guide manual).
Note: A self-test runs each time the CommPlete Communications Server is turned on. Refer to Chapter 5
of the MultiModemManager User Guide manual for more details on the power-on self-test.
Ethernet Cabling
Two female 10/100M bps connectors are accessible from the back of the CC9600 chassis. Connect one of
these connectors to the TCP/IP network that the supervisor console is attached to. The supervisor console
12
CommPlete Communications Server

Hardware Installation
is the PC that runs the MultiModemManager software or, optionally, a third-party SNMP manager. Note
that for 10M bps connection, you can use Category 3 (Cat 3) or Cat 5 cable; for 100M bps connection you
must use Category 5 (Cat 5) cable.
Serial Cabling
Use the 9-pin RS-232 connector on the back of the CC9600 chassis for diagnostics and configuration.
Network Connections
If any port on the MR9600-100 is set for full duplex operation, the device (or LAN) connected to that port
must also be set for full duplex operation. Refer to the following sections on 10M bps and 100M bps ports
for specific requirements.
10M bps Ports
The five 10M bps ports are used internally for the four CommPlete segments and the Controller. The 10M
bps ports operate at a user-selectable effective speed of 10M bps in half-duplex mode, or at 20M bps in
full-duplex mode. In either mode, the twisted-pair connector can operate over 100 meters of Category 3, 4,
or 5 UTP/STP cable. Note that the MR9600-100 back panel has two RJ-45 connectors. Refer to Figure 2 for
the proper connector type (cross-over or straight through).
100M bps Ports
The two 100M bps ports use standard RJ45 twisted-pair connectors with unshielded or shielded twistedpair (UTP/STP) wiring. The 100M bps ports operate at an auto-negotiable neffective speed of 100M bps
(in half-duplex mode) or 200M bps (in full-duplex mode). In either mode, the twisted-pair connector can
operate over 100 meters of Category 5 UTP/STP cable. (Cat 3 cable can be used if the 100M bps port is
running at 10M bps.)
The two 100M bps ports can auto-negotiate for 10/20/100/200M bps operation. Note that the MR9600-100
back panel has two RJ-45 connectors. Refer to Figure 2 for the proper connector type (cross-over or
straight through).

Under most conditions, the ports on the MR9600-100 may use normal straight-through cables. Some
circumstances, however, may require cross-over cables (i.e., cables in which the twisted-pair outputs have
been crossed). See Appendix B for more information on cable pinouts.

MR9600-100 User Guide
Setting the Duplex Mode (JP1-JP5)
Each 10M bps port can be set for half-duplex or full-duplex operation. At half-duplex operation, packet
transmission and reception do not occur simultaneously, thus communication speed is limited to 10Mbps
in 10BASE-T mode. At full-duplex operation, packet transmission and reception occur simultaneously,
thus communication speed is doubled to 20Mbps using 10BASE-T mode. Full-duplex operation can be
used on links between the MR9600-100 and any device (or station) that supports full-duplex operation.
Set the 10M bps duplex mode using jumpers JP1-JP5 on the top PCB located behind the front panel.
To set a port (e.g., “P1” in the figure below) to full-duplex operation, jumper the top two pins together for
that port.
To set a port (e.g., “P5” in the figure below) for half-duplex operation, jumper the bottom two pins
together for that port.
Refer to the figures below for 10M bps Half-duplex/Full-duplex mode jumper locations and settings. Note
that it is not necessary to turn off power to the MR9600-100 when changing the duplex mode setting.

You can operate the MR9600-100 by using the front panel indicators for information (see Chapter 6). But if
you install the optional MultiModemManager software, you can operate the MR9600-100 by running
windows-based menu and command functions from a dedicated management console (refer to the
MultiModemManager User Guide).
Security
The MR9600-100 has a security system to prevent unauthorized system modification by Telnet, Web
browser, or FTP users who access the system via the TCP/IP network or the diagnostic serial port on the
back of the CC9600 chassis. SNMP and MultiModemManager software security is accomplished by
selecting SNMP read and write community strings. Note: SNMP issues relate to the SNMP-managed
MR9600-100 chassis, but not to the unmanaged CC9600HB-100 Ethernet switch.
There are three levels of security: guest, operator, and supervisor. There are default user IDs and
passwords for each level (see following table).
Supervisor

Guest

Once you are logged in, you can change your user ID and password by using the commands userid to
change your user ID, and passwd to change your password (see Chapter 5).
File System
The MR9600-100 stores configuration, security, and event information in files. There are two drives on the
system: A and B. The A drive is used for nonvolatile information such as configuration and security
database files, and is about 1 MB in size. The B drive is for volatile information such as event files, and is
about 6.5 MB in size. Each drive has an MMM directory on it. A:\MMM stores all configuration
information for the system. B:\MMM\MR.LOG contains all of the event files for the system. The file system
can be accessed either through the command line interface or by using FTP.
Event Files
One event file is created for each hour in the format MMDDHHYY.HR, where MM is the month, DD is the
day, HH is the hour, and YY is the last two digits of the year. When the drive fills up, the oldest .HR file is
deleted. The number of events your MR9600-100 will hold depends on the number of calls you receive in a
day. Event files can be FTPed from the MR9600-100 and analyzed using the Statistical Analyzer, which is
part of the MultiModemManager software.

3 Operation
SNMP Interface
The MR9600-100 can be monitored and controlled by using SNMP through the MultiModemManager or a
third party SNMP manager.
Note that SNMP issues relate to the SNMP-managed MR9600-100 controller, but not to the unmanaged
CC9600HB-100 Ethernet switch.
To receive traps from the MR9600-100, the SNMP manager should log in using the entry in the system
table. In that entry, do a set of “login PUBLIC.” When you are done monitoring the MR9600-100, do a set
of the same variable with “logout.” This will stop traps being sent to your station. MultiModemManager
does this automatically.
Command Line Interface
The MR9600-100 provides a complete command line interface that enables you to do most of your
management functions through either the MR9600-100’s diagnostic serial connector or, more likely, by
using Telnet. When first setting up your MR9600-100, you must use the MR9600-100 diagnostic serial
connector to set up the system’s TCP/IP information, such as its IP address, default gateway IP address,
etc., as described in the MR9600-100 Quick Start in Chapter 3.
When you first connect with the MR9600-100, either in Telnet or by using the serial port, you will be
prompted for a user ID and password. Enter the correct user ID and password for the desired security level
(see “Security” on page 18). Once you are logged in, the screen should show the following information.
Welcome to MultiModemManager MR9600-100
version 2.20 (APR 24 1998 18:06:37) 4/29/1998 3:14pm
Press any key to start system
manually...starting............done
Username: supervisor
Password *********
[0] A:\ #
The command line prompt is the current directory followed by a # character. You can switch between the
MR9600-100’s two drives, A and B, by using the cd command or by typing A: or B:. A standard set of DOS
and UNIX file system commands are available, though in limited fashion (no wildcards are supported,
etc.). See Chapter 5 for command functions and limitations.
Some commands allow you to monitor activity on the CommPlete’s modems. The commands
getmodems, getcalls, and getfaults allow you to see the current state of the modems, the connection
history of the modems, and the history of faults on the modems, respectively.
Information that does not fit on the screen is displayed one page at a time by using a --MORE-prompt. When you see this prompt, you have the option of quitting the list by typing Q or continuing the
list by typing anything else.
Some commands allow you to change the current state of the modems. With the commands oosset,
oosclear, reset, and config, you can set modems in or out of service; reset them, or configure them,
respectively.
Use the logout command when you are done using the command line interface, in order to leave the
MR9600-100 in a secure state.
For a complete list of the MR9600-100’s commands, see Chapter 5.

MR9600-100 User Guide
Telnet Interface
Telnet is a standard Internet protocol that allows a remote connection between two systems connected to a
TCP/IP network such as the Internet. The MR9600-100 can be managed remotely by using Telnet. Telnet
can give the user access to all management functions through the command line interface.
There is an inactivity timer associated with the Telnet session. If there is no activity for 10 minutes, then
the Telnet session will close.
Web Browser Interface
The MR9600-100 can be monitored and controlled from a World Wide Web browser such as Netscape
Navigator version 2.0 or later, or Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3.0 or later.
Two interfaces are available: an HTML framed interface (in which the browser screen is split into separate
frames) and a non-framed interface. To use the framed interface, type the following URL in your browser’s
URL entry line and press ENTER:
http://111.222.333.444/mmm/main.html
For the non-framed interface, use the following URL:
http://111.222.333.444/mmm/standard.html
In both examples, 111.222.333.444 represents your card’s IP address.

3 Operation
Logging In
Whenever you access the MR9600-100 for the first time during a browser session, you will be prompted for
a user ID and password. You must log in as someone of security level operator or higher to get access to the
Web interface.
Both the framed and the non-framed interfaces present logged-in users with a list of available views
(Framed or Standard), a list of operations, and a list of information views. These are all available via
hypertext links.
Getting Modem Information
In each interface the same information is available in table format. There are tables of information about
modems, calls on modems, modem and system faults, and system version. In the framed version these
tables appear in frames on a single HTML page; in the non-framed version each table appears on a
separate HTML page.
Controlling Modems
In either interface, the user can reset modems, set modems in or out of service, and configure modems.
When the user selects the hot link for an operation, a form appears in which the user can enter in list
format (e.g., 1A:3C,15B) the modems that are to have the desired operation performed on them. The
operation is performed when the user selects the action button (e.g., Config if the user is configuring
modems).
Web Interface Limitations
The Web interface does not provide a full management interface. Full management is provided by our
MultiModemManager software, or through the use of a third party SNMP manager. However, once the
system is set up, most management can be done using the Web browser interface.
FTP Interface
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a standard Internet protocol that allows the transfer of files between two
systems connected to a TCP/IP network, such as the Internet. The MR9600-100 acts as an FTP server so
that FTP clients can send and receive files to and from it.
You need FTP to transfer configuration files (*.cfg) to and from your system. If you plan to use
MultiModemManager security, you need FTP to transfer security files (*.db) to and from your system. If
you wish to analyze event information, you also need FTP to transfer event files (*.hr) from the MR9600100 to a management computer where you can run the Statistical Analyzer on them.
Note: When logging in, you must use the Supervisor user name and password.

Parameter Types
Many MR9600-100 commands require a parameter to complete the command. Most of the required
parameters fall into one of the four following types.
Pathname
Description: A DOS-style path and/or file name. A partial path assumes the current directory.
Full pathname example: a:\mmm\MR9600-100.ini
Partial pathname example: MR9600-100.ini
The preceding partial pathname gives the same result as a:\mmm\MR9600-100.ini if the current working
directory is a:\mmm.
Device
Description: A list of modems or T1 devices separated by commas. No spaces are allowed. A colon selects
a range of devices from the device preceding the colon through the device following the colon.
The device identifier includes the device’s slot number and device letter. A CommPlete Communications
Server has 16 slots, numbered from left to right, with the RASCards occupying slots 1, 5, 9, and 13. Each
modem card contains 8 modems, represented by the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. Thus, 7D is the
fourth modem in slot 7.
Examples:
The following two strings each select modems 1A, 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F, 2G, 2H, 3A, 3B, and 4C:
1A,2A:3B,4C
1A,2A,2B,2C,2D,2E,2F,2G,2H,3A,3B,4C.
Note: T1 devices can exist only at 1b, 1c, 5b, 5c, 9b, 9c, 13b, and 13c.
IP Address
Description: An IP address string consisting of four decimal numbers separated by periods. Each number

Introduction
This chapter provides information needed to identify and fix problems with the MR9600-100. Problems
can be diagnosed by observing the LED indicators on the MR9600-100’s front panel, or through the
dedicated management console’s screen. Also, problems can be found by performing the diagnostic tests
documented in Chapter 8 of the MultiModemManager User Guide Manual.
For specific MultiModem troubleshooting information, refer to the MultiModem Owner’s Manual shipped
with your MultiModem. For basic Windows messages, refer to your Windows manual or Help screens. For
a description of the MR9600-100’s LED indicators, see Chapter 1.
MR9600-100 Diagnostic Tests
If you suspect that your MR9600-100 is not functioning properly, you can run the following diagnostic
tests to test the MR9600-100’s hardware capabilities.
1.
Refer to Figure 3 on page 12 to locate the test jumper on the MR9600-100 Controller card. Put the
test jumper into the loopback position, so the two pins are shorted together. Reinstall the MR9600100 assembly into the CC9600 chassis. Plug the 10Base-T loopback jumper into the Ethernet
connector labeled “LAN” on the rear of the CC9600 chassis.
2.
Run MultiExpress or another datacomm program on a PC at 115,200 bps with no flow control.
Connect the COM port used by the datacomm program to the MR9600-100’s RS-232 port on the rear
of the CC9600 chassis.
3.
Reset the MR9600-100 by pressing the reset button on the front with a paper clip, or turn the CC9600
chassis off and on.
4.
When prompted to start manually, press a key.
5.
When prompted to enter a user name and password, log in as supervisor.
6.
Type the command HDTEST and press ENTER.
7.
You will see a menu. Proceed with testing in the following order:

Appendix B - Categories of Ethernet Performance
The telecommunications industry has defined cable and cable component standards in terms of
performance “categories”. The standards cover cable thickness, outer jacket material and thickness, etc.
The categories specify the tests which the cable and components must pass to meet the standards. The two
categories of test standards currently in use are Category 3 and Category 5.
Category 3 (“Cat 3”) cabling is used for voice and data at speeds up to 10M bps (e.g., 10BaseT Ethernet).
Category 5 (“Cat 5”) cabling is used for 100M bps transmissions (e.g., 100BaseT), but is also fully capable
of 10M bps transmission. Both categories use 24 gauge wire.
The self-certifying tests for cabling and components involve a swept-frequency test. Cat 3 must pass all
signals from 1-16M Hz; Cat 5 must pass all signals from 1-100M Hz. All forms of modulation of any carrier
waves within those frequencies, as well as all forms of digital pulses must be supported for any and all
applications. Since handling digital pulses is more difficult than simple modulation, digital pulsing
requires a broader range of frequencies to provide square pulse edges (as compared to AM or FM
modulation).
Category 3 (Cat 3)
Cat 3 cabling and components are designed and tested for 16M Hz of communications bandwidth for 10M
bps voice and data/LAN traffic transmissions. Cat 3 is very common in voice telephone cabling. The Cat 3
technical specifications are defined by FCC Part 68, ANSI/EIA/TIA-568, TIA TSB-36, and TIA TSB-40.
Safety specifications for Cat 3 cabling are covered by UL 1459 (telephone), UL 1863 (wire and jacks), and
NEC 1993 (article 800-4).
Category 5 (Cat 5)
Cat 5 cabling and components are designed and tested for 100M Hz of communications bandwidth for
100M bps voice and data/LAN traffic transmissions. The Cat 3 technical specifications are defined by FCC
Part 68, EIA/TIA-568, TIA TSB-36, and TIA TSB-40. Safety specifications for Cat 3 cabling are covered by
UL 1459 (telephone), UL 1863 (wire and jacks), and NEC 1993 (article 800-4). Cat 5 cabling is required for
use with Ethernet 100BaseTX (Fast Ethernet over Category 5 wiring) networks.
Cat 5 wiring has advantages over Cat 3 in its operation (full-duplex) wire-twist structure (tighter),
insulation (better), and connecting hardware (more versatile). Another advantage with using Cat 5 is that
it works for legacy 10M bps as well as newer 100M bps equipment.
86
CommPlete Communications Server
Appendixes
However, Cat 5 has some installation requirements that must be met:
• Never use staples to mount or fix Cat 5 wiring.
• Velcro is recommended in place of tie wraps. Wrap cable in bundles very loosely if you use tie wraps.
• Never untwist the wire at the punch-down block or jack termination; the twists should remain right up
to the termination.
• Never strip off more jacket insulation than is required to make the termination.
• Do not pull too hard on the cable (especially around corners).
• Do not pull on a cable to straighten out a loop or kink. Instead, always untwist the cable at the location
of the loop or kink.
• Do not stuff too many cables into too small of a conduit.
• Refer to the applicable Commercial Building Telecom Wiring Standard for specific information.
The Ethernet 100BaseT standard is implemented for three cabling environments: copper wire
(100BaseT2), UTP (100BaseTX), and fiber (100BaseFX). Since the 100BaseT spec is built on the 10BaseT
spec, it is an easy upgrade from 10M to 100M bps, without impact on users, existing operating systems, or
network management applications. 100BaseT provides increased throughput compared to 10BaseT by
decreasing the latency period between bits, effectively increasing packet speed by a factor of 10.
100BaseTX uses two pairs of 24 gauge wire, one pair for transmitting and one pair for receiving.
Upgrading a network from 10M bps to 100M bps Ethernet requires 100BaseTX NICs and Hubs as well as
the Cat 5 wiring to connect them. It is strongly recommended that end-to-end testing be performed to
verify proper installation of Cat 5 connection to the Cat 5-compliant wall jacks and patch panels.
100BaseTX Connectivity Rules:
• the max. length of a twisted-pair segment (e.g., the distance from a Hub port to a PC/NIC) is 100
meters.
• the max. diameter in a collision domain is approx. 205 meters (672.5 feet) using two Class II Hubs and
200 meters (656 feet) using one Class I Hub.
• up to three segments and two Class II Hubs (or two segments and one Class I Hub) may exist between
any two end stations in a collision domain.
