Description
Key Features
The 1000BASE-SX and 1000BASE-LX Gigabit Ethernet (GEN) Interface
Modules are 2-port interface modules for the CoreBuilder™ 9000
Enterprise Switch. These GEN Interface Modules serve as a 2-Gigabit
data channel between the Gigabit Ethernet Switch Fabric Module and
other IEEE 802.3z-compliant Gigabit Ethernet devices.
The GEN Interface Modules support the following key features:
■
Two front panel IEEE 802.3z–compliant Gigabit Ethernet fiber-optic
ports that connect to a dedicated, non-blocking, redundant Gigabit
Ethernet backplane channel
■
850nm multimode support on the 1000BASE-SX GEN Interface
Module
■
1300nm single-mode support on the 1000BASE-LX GEN Interface
Module
■

Each GEN Interface Module has two ports on the front (see Figure 1) as
well as two ports on the rear of the module (not shown in Figure 1)
that connect to the chassis backplane. Because the front ports have a
pass-through function to the rear ports, they share port numbers
1 and 2 with the rear ports.
In the 16-slot chassis, you install modules vertically with the LEDs at the
top. In the 7-slot chassis, you install modules horizontally, as shown in
Figure 1.

AND
Order of Installation
Activities
2-PORT 1000BASE-LX GIGABIT ETHERNET INTERFACE MODULES QUICK START GUIDE
3Com recommends that you install CoreBuilder 9000 modules in the
following order:
1 Management Modules
One Enterprise Management Engine (EME) is required (order number
3CB9EME). A second EME or an Enterprise Management Controller
(EMC) is optional (order number 3CB9EMC). By installing the
management modules first, you can complete the required system-level
setup procedures before you add other modules to the chassis. For
more information, see the following documents:
■
Enterprise Management Engine User Guide
■
Enterprise Management Engine Quick Start Guide
■
Enterprise Management Controller Quick Start Guide
2 Switch Fabric Modules
Because you manage a GEN Interface Module through the primary GEN
Switch Fabric Module, you must install one GEN Switch Fabric Module
first. In the 16-slot chassis, a second GEN Switch Fabric Module is
optional. See the Gigabit Ethernet Switch Fabric Module Quick Start
Guide for more information.
3 Interface Modules
Install all interface modules, such as the 2-port 1000BASE-SX GEN
Interface Module, the 2-port 1000BASE-LX GEN Interface Module, or
the 36-port 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet RJ-45 Layer 2 Switching
Module, last. You can install interface modules in any order, but see
your module documentation for chassis slot restrictions and
recommendations. For restrictions and recommendations for the GEN
Interface Modules, see “Module Placement in the Chassis” next in this
guide.

Module Placement in
the Chassis
7
Note the following chassis slot restrictions and recommendations when
you choose a chassis slot for a GEN Interface Module.
In the CoreBuilder 9000 7-slot chassis:
■
Do not install the module in slot 7. This slot is reserved for a GEN
Switch Fabric Module.
■
Install the module in slot 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6.
In a CoreBuilder 9000 16-slot chassis:
■
Do not install the module in slot 8 or 9. These slots are reserved for
GEN Switch Fabric Modules.
■
To optimize backplane performance, install the module in slot 1, 2,
3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, or 12.
■
3Com recommends that you do not install the module in slot 13,
14, 15, or 16, because these slots only have one connection to the
backplane and the GEN Switch Fabric Modules (see Table 2). If you
install a GEN Interface Module into one of these slots, you can only
use one of the module’s front panel ports. The GEN Switch Fabric
Module automatically disables the second port.
Table 1 and Table 2 list the relationship between the 24 Gbps Gigabit
Ethernet (GEN) Switch Fabric Module (3CB9FG24) and the interface
module slots in the 7-slot chassis and the 16-slot chassis, respectively.
Use the information to help select a slot for your module, as well as for
administration purposes after you have completed the installation.

Installing the GEN
Interface Module
2-PORT 1000BASE-LX GIGABIT ETHERNET INTERFACE MODULES QUICK START GUIDE
Follow this procedure to install a GEN Interface Module:
1 Before you start the installation process, read “Safety Precautions” and
“Handling Precautions” earlier in this guide.
2 Select a chassis slot for your module, following the restrictions and
recommendations in “Module Placement in the Chassis” earlier in this
guide.
3 To expose the selected chassis slot, remove the blank faceplate that
covers the slot.
Save this faceplate, because you may need to cover an empty slot in
the future. Empty slots must be covered to ensure proper air flow and
cooling in the chassis.
4 Open the module ejector handles.
5 Begin to insert the module:
■
In the 7-slot chassis, hold the module horizontally with the LEDs on
the left and insert the module using the guides on the left and the
right of the slot. See Figure 2.
■
In the 16-slot chassis, hold the module vertically with the LEDs at
the top and insert the module using the guides on the top and the
bottom of the slot. See Figure 3.
CAUTION: Be careful not to twist or bend the module when you insert
it.
6 Slide the module into the chassis by pushing firmly at the two ends of
the front panel near the ejector handles.
WARNING: Hazardous energy levels exist inside of the chassis. Do not
place hands or objects into the chassis or touch components on an
inserted module.

7 To engage the module connectors and the chassis backplane
connectors, apply forward pressure to the module front panel.
You feel a slight resistance as the connectors engage.
CAUTION: If the resistance is too great, the module connectors and
the backplane connectors may not be aligned. Forcing the module into
place can damage the module connectors and backplane connectors. If
necessary, remove and reinsert the module, ensuring that the
connectors are properly aligned. Do not tighten the spring-loaded
screws to seat the module.
If modules are already installed to the left of this module in a 16-slot
chassis or installed beneath this module in a 7-slot chassis, you may
need to apply sideways or downward pressure on that adjacent module
to have your module line up correctly in its slot. Applying this pressure
compresses the thin strip of rubber-like material (which exists for
electromagnetic interference purposes) at the edge of the front panel
of the adjacent module.
8 Ensure that the module remains fully seated in the backplane
connectors while you close the ejector handles.
Use one hand to hold the module in place, and use your other hand to
close one ejector handle at a time until the handles are parallel with
the front panel.
9 To secure the module front panel to the chassis, tighten the
spring-loaded screws to a torque specification of 3–5 inch-pounds.
CAUTION: To ensure adequate cooling air flow and continued product
safety agency compliance, install blank faceplates over all empty slots.

Managing the
Module
15
You configure and manage the front panel ports on the GEN Interface
Module using the Administration Console, which is a command line
interface that you access from a terminal that is connected through the
Enterprise Management Engine (EME).
At the command prompt, you do not connect directly to a GEN
Interface Module; you manage GEN Interface Modules by connecting to
the primary GEN Switch Fabric Module backplane ports that correspond
to where you have installed the GEN Interface Module in the chassis. To
learn how GEN Switch Fabric Module backplane ports are assigned to
chassis slots, see Table 1 and Table 2 earlier in this guide.
To manage GEN Interface Module ports from the Administration
Console:
1 Log in to the EME.
For information about logging in to the EME, see the CoreBuilder 9000
Enterprise Management Engine User Guide.
2 At the prompt, enter:
connect <slot>.1
Where <slot> is the slot number of the module that you want to
manage, and the number after the decimal point is a subslot number
(the subslot number is always 1).
Because you manage the GEN Interface Modules through the GEN
Switch Fabric Module, you always connect to slot 7 in the
CoreBuilder 9000 7-slot chassis and to slot 8 or slot 9 in the
CoreBuilder 9000 16-slot chassis.
This command connects you to the primary GEN Switch Fabric Module,
and the Administration Console displays the top-level menu prompt.
3 To manage a GEN Interface Module port, enter commands for the
corresponding backplane port on the primary GEN Switch Fabric
Module.
For information about module commands, see the Command Reference
Guide.

YEAR 2000 WARRANTY
In addition to the Hardware Products Warranty and Software Products Warranty identified above, 3Com
warrants that all Heritage 3Com products sold or licensed to Customer on and after January 1, 1998 that

2000, provided that all other products used by Customer in connection or combination with the 3Com

“Heritage 3Com product” if it is a member of a product family which was manufactured by 3Com prior to
its merger with US Robotics Corporation. This Year 2000 limited warranty does not apply to Heritage US
Robotics Corporation products. If it appears that any such product does not perform properly with regard
to such date data on and after January 1, 2000, and Customer notifies 3Com before the later of April 1,
2000, or ninety (90) days after purchase of the product from 3Com or its authorized reseller, 3Com shall,
at its option and expense, provide a software update which would effect the proper performance of such
