Note
One AT-SBx31CFC supports up to 200 Gbps of bidirectional
Ethernet traffic. When two AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Cards are
installed, the switching load of the network traffic is shared between
the switching fabric circuitry on each of the line cards resulting in a
potential system throughput of 400 Gbps.
The Switchblade x3112 Management Software resides on the
AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card which monitors and configures the line
cards via the controller circuitry. Either one or two AT-SBx31CFC Fabric
Control Cards may be installed yielding a non-redundant or redundant
controller configuration respectively.

eco-friendly
Button
The eco-friendly button on the AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card front
panel is used to turn off the LEDs on the line cards.This reduces the
overall power consumption of the switch. It is displayed in Figure 7. You
may want to turn off the LEDs when you are not using them to monitor the
port status on the line card front panels.
With the LEDs are turned off, all of the LEDs in the chassis are affected
except for the M/S LED on the active AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card
which is always illuminated.
The eco-friendly button is also used for a lamp test, which is initiated each
time the button is pushed. The lamp test consists of LEDs flashing in
alternating colors for 3 seconds.
RESET
Figure 7 eco-friendly Button and Reset Button
RESET Button
You can use the RESET button to reset the controller and switch fabric
circuitry on the AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card.This button is
displayed in Figure 7. Push the button only in the unlikely event that the
Switchblade x3112 Management Software is not responsive to CLI
commands or status requests. Depending on your configuration, you may
initiate a short interruption in the flow of network traffic through the switch
when you press the button.
If you press the RESET button with only one AT-SBx31CFC Fabric
Control Card installed, which is the active controller, all of the Ethernet line
cards are reset by the AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card as part of its
boot up process.
Caution
When the RESET button is pressed with only one AT-SBx31CFC
Fabric Control Card installed, the Ethernet network traffic flow
through the switch is interrupted for up to two minutes while the ATSBx31CFC and Ethernet line cards reboot.
If you press the RESET button with two AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control
Cards installed, the role of the active controller is “swapped” with the
inactive controller. This means that the inactive controller becomes the
24
SwitchBlade x3112 Installation Guide
active controller and the active controller becomes the inactive or standby
controller. During this process, the switch management function is
swapped to the new active controller. In this case, the inactive ATSBx31CFC becomes active immediately, and consequently, the Ethernet
line cards are not affected or reset.
Caution
With two AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Cards installed, the
switching fabric circuitry on each line card is shared. When you
press the RESET button, the Ethernet network traffic flow through
the switch is limited to 200 Gbps for up to two minutes. This is the
time required for the inactive AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card to
reboot and for its switching fabric circuitry to become available again
for switching network traffic.
Note
The RESET switch is specifically provided for resetting the
AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card. If you want to swap the
controller function between the active and standby AT-SBx31CFC
Fabric Control Cards, Allied Telesis recommends that you use the
SWAP commands provided in the Switchblade x3112 Management
Software. Refer the to the Software Reference for SwitchBlade®

pinouts, refer to “Connectors and Port Pinouts” on page 102.
The default setting for the Management port is Auto-Negotiation with Auto
MDI/MDI-X. At the default setting, the port, which is IEEE 802.3u
compliant, sets its speed and duplex mode automatically with AutoNegotiation. You can disable Auto-Negotiation and set the speed and
duplex mode manually.
The wiring configuration of the port is set automatically with
Auto MDI/MDI-X to MDI or MDI-X, depending on the wiring configuration
of the end node. This allows you to use a straight-through twisted-pair
cable regardless of the wiring configuration of the port on the network
device. The Auto MDI/MDI-X feature is only available when the port is
using Auto-Negotiation. If the Auto-Negotiation feature is disabled with the

Chapter 1: Overview
Connector Type
Speed
The ports are 8-pin RJ-45 connectors that use four pins at 10 or 100 Mbps
and all eight pins at 1000 Mbps. For the pin assignments, refer to “RJ-45
Twisted Pair Port Pinouts” on page 78.
A port’s speed can be 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps. The speed can be set
automatically through Auto-Negotiation, the default setting, or manually
with the Switchblade x3112 Management Software.
Note
To operate at 1000 Mbps, a twisted-pair port is set to Auto Negotiation. You cannot set the speed of a twisted-pair port to
1000 Mbps manually.
Duplex Mode
A twisted-pair port can operate in either half- or full-duplex mode. (Fullduplex mode is the only mode available when a port is operating at 1000
Mbps.) The twisted-pair ports are IEEE 802.3u-compliant and AutoNegotiate the duplex mode setting.
You can disable Auto-Negotiation on one or all of the switch ports so that
you can set the duplex mode manually through the Switchblade x3112
Management Software.
Note
In order for a switch port to successfully Auto-Negotiate its duplex
mode with a 10 or 100 Mbps end node, the end node should also be
configured for Auto-Negotiation. Otherwise, a duplex mode
mismatch can occur. A switch port using Auto-Negotiation defaults
to half-duplex if it detects that the end node is not using AutoNegotiation. This results in a mismatch if the end node is operating
at a fixed duplex mode of full-duplex.
To avoid this problem when connecting an end node with a fixed
duplex mode of full-duplex to a switch port, use the Switchblade
x3112 Management Software to disable Auto-Negotiation on the
port and set the port speed and duplex mode manually.

The cabling requirements for a 10/100/1000Base-T port are:
ˆ
For 10 Mbps operation: Standard TIA/EIA 568-B-compliant Category 3
or better shielded or unshielded cabling with 100 ohm impedance and
a frequency of 16 MHz.
ˆ
For 100 Mbps operation: Standard TIA/EIA 568-A-compliant Category
5 or TIA/EIA 568-B-compliant Enhanced Category 5 (Cat 5e) shielded
or unshielded cabling with 100 ohm impedance and a frequency of 100
MHz.
ˆ
For 1000 Mbps operation: Standard TIA/EIA 568-A-compliant
Category 5 or TIA/EIA 568-B-compliant Enhanced Category 5 (Cat 5e)
shielded or unshielded cabling with 100 ohm impedance and a
frequency of 100 MHz.
The twisted-pair ports on the switch are IEEE 802.3ab compliant and
feature Auto MDI/MDI-X. This feature, available when a port’s speed and
duplex mode are set through Auto-Negotiation, automatically configures a
switch port to MDI or MDI-X depending on the wiring configuration of the
port on the end node. This allows you to connect any network device to a
port on the switch using a straight-through twisted-pair cable.
If Auto-Negotiation is disabled on a port and the speed and duplex mode
are set manually, the Auto MDI/MDI-X feature is also disabled and the
port’s wiring configuration defaults to the MDI-X setting.
Port Pinouts
Refer to Table 14 on page 102 for the port pinouts when a twisted-pair port
operates at 10 or 100 Mbps in the MDI configuration and Table 15 on

Description
SwitchBlade x3112 Installation Guide
AT-SBx31GP24
Power over
Ethernet
The twisted-pair ports on the AT-SBx31GP24 PoE Line Card feature
Power over Ethernet (PoE). PoE is a mechanism for supplying power to
network devices over the same twisted-pair cables used to carry network
traffic. This feature can simplify network installation and maintenance by
allowing you to use the switch as a central power source for other network
devices.
A device that receives its power over an Ethernet cable is called a
powered device (PD). Examples of such devices are wireless access
points, IP telephones, web cams, and even other Ethernet switches. A PD
connected to a port on the switch receives both network traffic and power
over the same twisted-pair cable.
The AT-SBx31GP24 automatically determines whether a device
connected to a port is a PD or not. A PD has a signature resistor or
signature capacitor that the switch can detect over the Ethernet cabling. If
the resistor or capacitor is present, the switch assumes that the device is a
PD.
A port connected to a network node that is not a PD (that is, a device that
receives its power from another power source) functions as a regular
Ethernet port, without PoE. The PoE feature remains enabled on the port
but no power is delivered to the device.
Power Budgeting
The AT-SBx31GP24 PoE Line Card is capable of providing a maximum of
30W of power per port on all 24 ports for a total power consumption of 720
W, while at the same time furnishing standard 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
functionality. See Table 8 on page 34 for the matrix of Class versus power
level output and the maximum number of ports.
Note
The maximum number of PoE ports in the SwitchBlade x3112
Switch is 240 ports.

The PoE power is supplied to the PoE ports on a first come basis. By
default, the highest PoE priority starts from slot 0, port 0 and decreases as
the PoE slot/port numbers ascend to the last PoE port.
For example, if you have one AT-SBx3165 PoE Power Supply and two
AT-SBx31GP24 PoE Line Cards are installed and 40 Class 4 PDs
connected to slot/ports 0/0 through 0/23 and 1/0 through 1/15, they all
receive the full 30 W of PoE power or a total of 1200W. If more than 40
PDs are connected, the highest slot/port numbers have a flashing amber
or fault condition because all the available PoE power (1200 W) are
allocated to the first 39 ports and no additional PoE power is available for
the additional PDs.
Note
The PoE port priorities can be reassigned using the port
configuration commands in the Switchblade x3112 Management
Software. Refer the to the Software Reference for SwitchBlade®
x3100 Series Switches on the ATI web site for specific information.

SwitchBlade x3112 Installation Guide
Implementation
A standard Ethernet twisted-pair cable contains four pairs of strands for a
total of eight strands. Network traffic at speeds of 10/100 Mbps requires
only four strands (1, 2, 3, and 6), leaving four strands in the cable unused
(4, 5, 7, and 8).
Note
1000BASE-T cables carry the network traffic on all eight strands of
the Ethernet cable.
The PoE standard, IEEE 802.3at, describes two alternative ways for
delivering power to a PD over twisted-pair cabling for 10/100 Mbps ports.
Alternative A uses the same strands that carry the network traffic
where Alternative B uses the spare strands of the cable. The PoE
implementation on the AT-SBx31GP24 PoE Line Card is Alternative A,
where power is transmitted over strands 1, 2, 3, and 6.
PDs that comply with the IEEE 802.3at standard typically support both
power delivery methods. As a PD is compliant with the standard, it
receives its power from the switch while using either a straight or
crossover cable. The AT-SBx31GP24 PoE Line Card works with most
legacy PDs as long as the device can be powered on pins 1, 2, 3, and 6. A
legacy device is a node that was manufactured before the IEEE 802.3at
standard was completed and, consequently, may not adhere to the
standard. If this is the case, a straight (MDI) cable may be needed to
insure that the DC polarity is correct.

AT-SBx31FAN Tray
The AT-SBx31FAN Tray consists of four fans with speed control and
status circuitry. It is a field replaceable assembly that is factory installed
and shipped with the AT-SBx3112 Chassis.
The fan tray is initialized by the Switchblade x3112 Management Software
running on the AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card. The fan speed is
controlled automatically and is adjusted proportional to the internal
operating temperature of the switch. When the ambient temperature
coming into the fan tray is approximately 20 C, the speed of the fans are
their lowest. The fan speed increases to provide additional cooling as the
ambient temperature rises, which allows proper operation for the line
cards within the chassis.
The AT-SBx31FAN Tray features the following:
Cooling across all twelve chassis line card slots
ˆ Quad-fan design for better reliability
ˆ Software controlled, temperature speed control for noise control
ˆ Hot-swappable design

SwitchBlade x3112 Installation Guide
To prepare for the installation of the SwitchBlade x3112 Switch into your
equipment rack, perform the following procedure:
Caution
Due to its weight, the chassis should be mounted as low as possible
in the equipment rack to maximize vertical stability.
1. Reserve 311.1 mm (12.25“) of vertical rack space for the installation of
the AT-SBx3112 Chassis as shown in Figure 21.
311.1 mm (12.25“)
152.4 mm (6”0)
In addition, do not mount any other equipment within 152.4 mm (6”)
above this space during installation. This additional vertical space is
temporary and allows you enough room to lift and tilt the chassis into
its position in the equipment rack without hitting other equipment - see
Figure 25 on page 56. When the chassis is installed, this additional
space is available for any other equipment that you may install.
463.5 mm (18.25”)

sales representative for assistance.
Adjusting the
Brackets
–
One AT-SBx3112 Chassis (with pre-installed ATSBx31FAN Tray and shipping brace)
–
Ten line card blank panels
–
Three power supply blank panels
Before installing the AT-SBx3112 Chassis, you need to determine where
the horizontal position of the chassis front panel will be relative to the
vertical rack rails. The AT-SBx3112 Chassis rack mounting brackets come
installed from the factory so that the chassis is flush with the rack rails after
installation. See position “A” in Figure 23 on page 54.
You may decide to extend (positions “B” through “E” in Figure 23 on page
54) or recess (position “F” in Figure 24 on page 55) the horizontal position
of the chassis relative to the rack mounting rails. You can do this by
removing both rack mounting rails and re-attaching them in the
appropriate holes on each side of the chassis. The dimension (X) between
the front panel and the rack rails is given in Table 13 for each rack
mounting bracket position.

Chapter 2: Installation
Cabling the Twisted-Pair or Fiber Optic Ports
Observe the following guidelines when connecting a twisted-pair or fiber
optic cable to a port on the switch:
ˆ
The connector on the cable should fit snugly into the port on the
switch. The tab on the connector should lock the connector into place.
ˆ
Because the twisted-pair ports on the switch are auto-MDI/MDI-X, any
type of network device can be connected to a port on the switch using
a straight-through twisted-pair cable. If you disable Auto-Negotiation
on the port, the port defaults to MDI-X. For instructions on how to
configure a port, refer to the Software Reference for SwitchBlade®
x3100 Series Switches on the ATI web site for specific information.
Go to “Where to Find Web-based Guides” on page 13 for information
about how to navigate to this document.
ˆ
If your network topology contains a loop where two or more network
devices can communicate with each other over more than one network
path, do not connect the network cables forming the loop until after
you have activated a spanning tree protocol on the switch. Data loops
can adversely affect network performance.
ˆ
If you are creating a port trunk, you must configure the Switchblade
x3112 Management Software before connecting the cables of the
trunk to the switch. Otherwise, a network loop will result which can
adversely affect network performance.
ˆ
In order for a switch port to successfully Auto-Negotiate its duplex
mode with an end node, the end node should also be using AutoNegotiation. Otherwise, a duplex mode mismatch can occur. A switch
port using Auto-Negotiation defaults to half-duplex if it detects that the
end node is not using Auto-Negotiation. This can result in a mismatch
if the end node is operating at a fixed duplex mode of full-duplex.
To avoid this problem, disable Auto-Negotiation on a switch port and
set the port’s speed and duplex mode manually if the end node has a
fixed duplex mode of full-duplex.
82
SwitchBlade x3112 Installation Guide
Installing the Chassis Blank Panels
Ten blank panels are supplied with the AT-SBx3112 Chassis. These

card has not been installed.
2. Align the two thumb screws on the blank panel with the mounting holes
on the front panel rails of the chassis.
3. Finger tighten the two thumbscrews to attach the blank panel to the
chassis.
4. With a # 2 Phillips head screw driver, torque both thumbscrews to
.56 Nm (5 lb-in) maximum.
5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for the remaining vacant slots.
6. Store any unused blank panels in a secure place for future use.

PSU Fault LED Flashing Amber on AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control
Card
Check the PSU System Status LED on the front of the AT-SBx31CFC card
for a solid green or flashing amber status. A flashing amber status LED
indicates a FAULT condition on one or more power supplies.
Check each Fault LED on each AT-SBx3161 System Power Supply and
AT-SBx3165 PoE Power Supply to see which one(s) is solid amber and
then do the following:
ˆ
You can obtain the current status for each power supply by using the
Switchblade x3112 Management Software by entering the following
commands:
officer SEC>> SHOW PSU
officer SEC>> SHOW PSU FULL
Contact Allied Telesis Technical Support for further assistance. Please
report the power supply fault condition and the information obtained
from the SHOW PSU and SHOW PSU FULL commands.
ˆ
If the affected power supply needs to be replaced, remove it and install
a replacement power supply. Refer to “Installing the AT-SBx3161
System Power Supply” on page 61.
Note
The AT-SBx3161 System Power Supply and AT-SBx3165 PoE
Power Supply are hot swappable when used in a redunant
configuration. This allows the SwitchBlade x3112 to continue to
operate while you exchange power supplies.

FAN Fault LED Flashing Amber on AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control
Card
Check the FAN System LED on the front panel of the AT-SBx31CFC
Fabric Control Card for a solid green or flashing amber status. A flashing
amber status LED indicates a FAULT condition in the AT-SBx31FAN Tray.
The fan tray is initialized by the software running on the AT-SBx31CFC
Fabric Control Card. The fan speed is independently adjusted proportional
to the internal operating temperature. If the fan speed of one or more fans
falls below a set minimum speed, the fan FAULT condition will occur.
You can obtain specific information for the AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control
Card by using the Switchblade x3112 Management Software to note
specific parameters by entering the following command:
officer SEC>> SHOW FANMODULE
ˆ
Contact Allied Telesis Technical Support for further assistance. Please
report the AT-SBx31FAN Tray fault condition and the information
obtained from the SHOW FANMODULE command.
ˆ
If the AT-SBx31FAN Tray needs to be replaced, remove the assembly
and install a replacement AT-SBx31FAN Tray. Refer to “Replacing the
AT-SBx31FAN Tray” on page 79.
Note
The AT-SBx31FAN Tray is hot swappable which allows the
SwitchBlade x3112 to continue to operate while you exchange ATSBx31FAN Trays.

Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
SBx Status LEDs Flashing Amber on AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control
Card
If a SBx Status LED is flashing amber, the line card has experienced a
FAULT or an error condition. See “SBx STATUS LED Description on the
Active AT-SBx31CFC Fabric Control Card” on page 23 for an explanation
of all status conditions.
Note
All line cards are hot swappable. This allows the AC power to be
connected to the SwitchBlade x3112 while you re-seat or exchange
line cards.
ˆ
If a FAULT condition is encountered for one of the card slots, you can
attempt to restart the line card. The following example is for restarting
a card in slot 2:
officer SEC>> restart card 2
You will be prompted as follows - enter y for YES:
Do you really want to restart card 2 (Y/N)? y
Command has been submitted
officer SEC>>
ˆ
If the RESTART CARD command is not successful, remove the line
card from the slot and re-seat until the face plate is flush with the
chassis front panel. Wait for 2 to 3 minutes for it to come on line. If it
successfully comes up, the SBx Status LED for the slot in question
turns to solid green.
ˆ
You can obtain specific card status information for each card slot
through the Switchblade x3112 Management Software by entering the
SHOW CARD command as follows:
officer SEC>> show card
ˆ
92
If the SBx Status LED for the slot is continues to flash amber after the
above actions have been taken, contact Allied Telesis for further
assistance. Please report the slot where the SBx Status LED fault
condition is present and the information obtained from the SHOW
CARD command.

Link LED is Off on AT-SBx31GP24 PoE Line Card
Under normal operating conditions for a port with an active LINK status,
the LINK LED for each port is either solid GREEN or AMBER, or it is
flashing GREEN or AMBER. Refer to “Port LEDs on the AT-SBx31GP24
PoE Line Card” on page 32 for the LINK LED location and Table 7 on
page 32 for the LINK LED description. If a Link LED is off, do the following:
ˆ
Verify that the end node connected to the port is powered ON and is
operating properly.
ˆ
Check that the twisted-pair cable is securely connected to the port on
the switch and to the port on the end node.
ˆ
Make sure that the twisted-pair cable does not exceed 100 m
(328 ft).
ˆ
Verify that you are using the appropriate category of twisted-pair cable:
Category 3 or better for 10 Mbps operation, Category 5/5E for 100
Mbps 1000 Mbps and Category 6/6E for 10GBASE-T operations.
ˆ
Determine if a crossover cable is required. Since the twisted-pair ports
feature auto MDI/MDI-X, you should be able to use a straight-through
cable regardless of the type of device you connect to a port. However,
if you disable auto-negotiation on a port and set a port’s speed and
duplex mode manually, the port defaults to MDI-X.
ˆ
Verify that the twisted-pair cable is not faulty by replacing it with a
known good cable
ˆ
Make sure that the operating parameters of the port on the switch are
compatible with the end node to which the port is connected. This may
require that you use the Switchblade x3112 Management Software.

Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
PoE Device is not Receiving Power on AT-SBx31GP24 PoE Line Card
If you attached a powered device (PD) to a port on a AT-SBx31GP24
card, the PoE LED for the port should be green. If the device is not
receiving power or the PoE LED is flashing amber, steady amber, or is
OFF, do the following:
94
ˆ
Check to be sure that the PD is designed to receive power over pins 1,
2, 3, and 6 on the RJ-45 port. This can be verified by reviewing the
device’s documentation or data sheet.
ˆ
Check that the device’s power requirements do not exceed 30 W. This
can be verified by reviewing the device’s documentation or data sheet.
ˆ
Verify that the PD is not faulty
ˆ
Verify that you are using the appropriate category of twisted-pair
cable: Category 3 or better for 10 Mbps operation, Category 5/5E for
100 Mbps 1000 Mbps and Category 6/6E for 10GBASE-T operations.
ˆ
Verify that the twisted-pair cable is not faulty by replacing it with a
known good cable.
ˆ
Use the Switchblade x3112 Management Software to determine
whether PoE is enabled on the port. The default setting for PoE is
enabled.
ˆ
Use the Switchblade x3112 Management Software to determine
whether the PoE power setting for the port has been reduced from the
default setting of 30 W, to a value below the power requirements of the
device.
ˆ
Verify that the power budget on the switch is not being exceeded by
the number of PDs and their load requirements. This should not be a
problem for the AT-SBx31GP24 card, which can support PDs on all
ports 1 to 24, assuming the connected devices require no more than
30 W/port. However, if the total number of ports in the AT-SBx3112
chasssis exceeds the maximum allowed with the number of ATSBx3165 PoE supplies, this will result in a FAULT condition for those
ports over the limit. Refer to “IEEE802.3at Classes versus ATSBx31GP24 Power Levels” on page 34 for the maximum number of
ports supported for each Class.

Port LED is Off on AT-SBx31XZ4 XFP Line Card
For fiber optic uplink ports that have an XFP transceiver installed, verify
that the 1000 LINK LED is ON. If a 1000 LINK LED is off but the
transceiver is present, do the following:
ˆ
Verify that the end node connected to the port is powered ON and is
operating properly.
ˆ
Check that the fiber optic cable is securely connected to the XFP
transceiver in the AT-SBx31XZ4 XFP Line Card and to the port on the
remote end node. The dual ports in an XFP transceiver consist of two
separate connectors, where each connector connects to a separate
fiber strand.

When you connect a fiber optic cable, be sure that the receive fiber
connector of the XFP transceiver is connected to the transmit
connector on the remote end node, and that the transmit fiber
connector is connected to the receive connector on the remote node.
ˆ
Make sure that you are using the appropriate type of fiber optic cable
and that the cable length does not exceed the allowed maximum
distance. For cable specifications, refer to the data sheet for your XFP
transceiver.
ˆ
Use a fiber optic tester to test the attenuation on the cable to determine
if the strength of the fiber optic signal falls below acceptable limits. For
fiber optic port specifications, refer to the data sheet for your XFP
transceiver.
ˆ
Check that the operating specifications (for instance, wavelength and
maximum operating distance) of the fiber optic port on the remote end
node are compatible with the fiber optic port on the AT-SBx31XZ4 XFP
Line Card.
ˆ
Check to be sure that the fiber optic ports on theAT-SBx31XZ4 XFP
Line Card and on the remote end node are operating at the same
speed and duplex mode.
ˆ
Verify that any optional XFP transceivers are completely inserted into
the SP slot on the front of the switch.
95
Chapter 3: Troubleshooting
ˆ
96
Verify that the XFP transceiver is IEEE 802.3ae (10G Ethernet) and
XFP MSA compliant. If an XFP transceiver meets a “Fiber Channel”
standard, it may not link up.
