SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
THE FE-100F3 FAST ETHERNET INTERFACE MODULE, FPIM-05 AND
FPIM-07 FDDI PORT INTERFACE MODULES, AND APIM-29 ATM
PORT INTERFACE MODULE 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.

Overview
1.3
OVERVIEW
The HSIM-A6DP extends the functionality of your Cabletron Systems
interface module or standalone hub to include remote uplink capability. It
allows remote connectivity using ATM technology.
Two APIMs can be installed in the HSIM-A6DP, to provide redundant
ATM links from the HSIM to a switched ATM network. Cabletron
Systems provides a variety of APIMs that let you select the configuration
of your choice. If port redundancy is not a requirement, then only one
APIM needs to be installed.
The HSIM-A6DP supports two types of Virtual Channels: Permanent
Virtual Channels (PVCs), and Switched Virtual Channels (SVCs), which
are compliant with the ATM Forum’s User-Network-Interface (UNI) for
SVC signaling specification.
1.4
FEATURES
ATM Port Interface Modules (APIMs)
The HSIM-A6DP supports two Cabletron Systems APIMs for ATM
connectivity and redundancy. You can easily install APIMs into the
HSIM-A6DP for the interface of your choice. The two APIMs installed
may be of any combination of physical layer cable type and bandwidth.
For example the APIM installed in slot 1 could support Twisted Pair cable
and provide 155 Mbps of bandwidth, while the APIM installed in slot 2
could support Coaxial cable and provide 45 Mbps of bandwidth.
Appendix A, APIM Specifications, details all of the APIMs available for
the HSIM-A6DP.
MIB Support
For additional information on how to extract and compile individual
MIBs, refer to the Release Notes, or contact Cabletron Systems Technical
Support (refer to Section 1.7, Getting Help).

3.10.1 ATM LEC Table Screen Fields
The ATM LEC Table screen is a read-only screen that allows the user to
view the status of all LECs currently configured on the HSIM-A6DP.
The following list explains each of the ATM LEC Table screen fields:
IF (Read-Only)
This field displays the MIB-II Interface that this LEC has been assigned
dynamically.
LEC Index (Read-Only)
This field displays the Index of the LEC that was dynamically assigned.
ELAN Name (Read-Only)
This field displays the name given the Emulated LAN (ELAN) by the user
in the ELAN Administration screen (Section 3.11) or by the LECS.
LEC State (Read-Only)
This field displays the current state of the LEC. The LEC goes through a
series of initialization phases, which may result in this field displaying
different states as the initialization process proceeds. The possible states
are as follows:
NOTE
In most cases, the initialization process occurs very rapidly, and
the following initialization states, with the exception of
“operational”, will not display.
initialState - While in initialState the LEC receives various
configuration parameters from the LES, such as ATM addresses, ELAN
name, and maximum frame size allowed.
lecsConnect - During the lecsConnect phase, the LEC establishes a
Configuration Direct VCC with the LECS.
configure - The configure phase is where the LEC connects to the LES
before going on the join phase.
join - During the join phase, the LEC establishes an LES Control Direct
VCC with the LES. After this connection is made, the LEC is assigned a
LEC Index, and the initialization process proceeds to the
initialRegistration phase.
HSIM-A6DP User’s Guide
3-25
Chapter 3: Local Management
initialRegistration - The initialRegistration phase is used by the LEC to
confirm that its MAC Address(es) are unique before becoming fully
operational on the network.
busConnect - While in the busConnect phase, the LEC connects to the
Broadcast and Unknown server (BUS). At the end of this the phase, the
LEC has a BUS Multicast Send VCC and a BUS Multicast Forward VCC
with the BUS. Once these VCCs have been created, the LEC becomes
operational on the network.
operational - The LEC is now fully configured, and is switching traffic.

The Discovery ELAN Setup Screen
3.16.1 ATM Discovery ELAN Setup Screen Fields
The ATM Discovery ELAN Setup screen is used only when the host
device is configured to operate as a SecureFast switch. Upon first
initialization, the HSIM-A6DP attempts to contact any other
HSIM-A6DPs present on the SecureFast network. Once all HSIM-A6DPs
have discovered each other, they automatically create a default discovery
ELAN.
NOTE
If the HSIM-A6DP is inserted into a SecureFast network where
the default discovery ELAN has already been created, it will be
instructed to join this ELAN, rather than create a new discovery
ELAN.
All LECs that have been configured on the HSIM-A6DP use the
discovery ELAN(s) for notification of new LECs joining the discovery
ELAN. In this fashion, all LECs are aware of each other on the
SecureFast ATM network. The SecureFast network may be further
segmented by setting specific HSIM-A6DPs to belong to specific
discovery ELANs designated by the user in the Discovery ELAN Setup
screen. Up to 16 ELANs may be designated as discovery ELANs, and the
HSIM-A6DP may belong to any number of these 16 ELANs.
The default ELAN is represented as Index 1 on the ATM Discovery
ELAN Setup screen in Figure 3-15.
The default ELAN does not have a name assigned to itself.
NOTE
After this default ELAN is created, the user may set existing ELANs to be
discovery ELANS (to a total of 16) and assign the HSIM-A6DP to these
new discovery ELANs. The ATM Discovery ELAN Setup screen also
allows the user to enable or disable each ELAN, as desired. The following
definitions describe each of the ATM Discovery ELAN Setup screen
fields:
Index (Read-only)
This field displays the number assigned to this ELAN by the

USING THE BANDWIDTH ALLOCATION MODE
FEATURE
The HSIM-A6DP provides a feature that allows the user to create PVCs,
and configure each PVC to be guaranteed a set amount of bandwidth, up
to the amount of bandwidth that the APIM provides.
NOTE
Up to 1020 PVCs may be created using the Bandwidth
Allocation feature. However, ensure that the total amount of
bandwidth provided by the APIM is not exceeded.
For example, an HSIM-A6DP with an APIM-22 installed provides
155 Mbps of bandwidth. The Bandwidth Allocation Mode feature could
allow the user to create 2 PVCs. The first PVC could be guaranteed
100 Mbps of the available bandwidth. The second PVC could be
guaranteed the remaining 55 Mbps of bandwidth. Up to 1020 PVCs may
be created using the Bandwidth Allocation feature. However, ensure that
the total amount of bandwidth provided by the APIM is NOT exceeded.
The following sections provide instructions on how to configure the
HSIM-A6DP using the Bandwidth Allocation Mode feature.

CAUTION
The APIM-67R does not use Cell Payload Scrambling.
Scrambling must be disabled on any DS3 device connected to
the APIM-67R.
The APIM-67 conforms to the electrical characteristics specified by ANSI
T1.404-1989 Carrier-to-Customer Installation-DS3 Metallic Interface
Specification, Section 5.12 Grounding Arrangements. In accordance with
this specification, each channel (Transmit and Receive) must be grounded
at one end.
Cabletron Systems ships the APIM-67R with the following default
jumper settings:
•
Receive channel jumper - grounded
•
Transmit channel jumper - not grounded
Figure A-6 shows the location and default setting of each jumper. Refer to
Figure A-6 if you need to change the jumper settings to properly connect
the APIM-67R to another DS3 device.
