SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
THE 9H539-24 MODULE USES 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.

Introduction
The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 shown in Figure 1-1, are
10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet interface modules for the Cabletron Systems
SmartSwitch 9000 chassis. The 9H532-24 provides 24 RJ45 10/100 Ethernet ports
and the 9H533-24 provides 24 10/100 Ethernet ports via two RJ21 Telco ports. The
9H531-24 provides 24 MTRJ MMF switched ports and the 9H539-24 provides 24
SMF switched ports.
The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 can be used to connect
individual high-bandwidth user devices, such as workstations, or to provide a
central switching point for multiple 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet segments.
Features
Connectivity
The 9H532-24 connects to Ethernet networks or workstations through the 24 RJ45
ports on the front panel. The 9H533-24 supports two RJ21 Telco connectors that
provide up to 24 ports of 10/100 mbps Ethernet connectivity. These ports are
IEEE 802.3 10BASE-T and IEEE 802.3u 100BASE-TX compliant. The ports support
Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair cables with an impedance between 85 and
111 ohms at lengths up to 100 meters. In addition, Category 3 cabling can be used
for 10 Mbps only.
The 9H531-24 uses MJ-RT connectors that support multimode Þber connectivity.

Introduction
Auto-Negotiation
The twisted pair ports on the front panel of the 9H532-24 and 9H533-24 modules
have the ability to auto-negotiate the type of connection required to provide a link
to another device. During Auto-Negotiation, two devices automatically exchange
information ÒtellingÓ each other what their operating capabilities are. The AutoNegotiation feature targets the maximum capabilities that can be reached
between the two devices. For example, the module adjusts to 100 Mbps when the
device on the other end of the connection can also adjust between 10 Mbps or
100 Mbps. If the device on the other end of the connection can only operate at
10 Mbps, then the 9H532-24 adjusts to 10 Mbps operation.
When Auto-Negotiation is supported at both ends of a link, the two devices
dynamically adjust to full or half duplex operation based on the maximum
capability that can be reached between the two devices. If the device connected to
the 9H532-24 and 9H533-24 cannot auto-negotiate, the 9H532-24 and 9H533-24
interface operates according to the speed of the other device, in half duplex mode.
For a full duplex only device, the port may be manually conÞgured to full duplex.
Both the 9H531-24 and the 9H539-24 support Full Duplex Switched Ethernet
(FDSE) with 100 Mbps operation only. On the 9H532-24 and the 9H533-24, each
switched Fast Ethernet port can be conÞgured to operate in FDSE mode, with 10
or 100 Mbps operation. FDSE allows each port to provide up to 200 Mbps of
bandwidth.
Runtime IP Address Discovery
This feature enables the modules to automatically accept an IP address from a
Boot Strap Protocol (BootP) server on the network into NVRAM without
requiring a user to enter an IP address through Local Management.
When the modules are connected to the network and powered up, Runtime IP
Address Discovery (RAD) checks the modules for an IP address. If one has not yet
been assigned (module and SmartSwitch 9000 chassis IP address set to 0.0.0.0),
RAD checks to see if any of the module interfaces have a link. If so, RAD sends
out Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) and BootP requests to obtain an
IP address from a RARP or BootP server on the network.
The RAD requests start at an interval of one per second. The interval then doubles
after every transmission until an interval of 300 seconds is reached. At this point,
the interval remains at 300 seconds. The RAD requests continue until an IP
address is received from a RARP or BootP server, or an IP address is entered
using Local Management.
SmartTrunk
SmartTrunk, also referred to as SmartTrunking, is Cabletron SystemsÕ
terminology for load balancing or load sharing. SmartTrunk technology provides
an easy-to-implement mechanism to group, or aggregate, multiple links of any
technology together to scale the backbone bandwidth beyond the limitations of a
1-3
Introduction
single link. All links are user-conÞgurable so administrators can scale the
backbone bandwidth by adding SmartTrunk links. The beneÞts of SmartTrunking
include the following:
¥
All purchased bandwidth is used.
¥
Distributed, resilient links increase reliability and performance.
¥
Multiple technologies are supported within a single trunk for maximum
ßexibility.
NOTE
For information on SmartTrunk conÞguration, refer to the
SmartTrunk UserÕs Guide.
Management
Management of the 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 modules and
SmartSwitch chassis and any optional equipment is accomplished using the Local
Management application or remote SNMP management stations. Local
Management is accessible through the RS232 COM port on the Environmental
Module using a local VT100 terminal, or a remote VT100 terminal via a modem
connection, and in-band via a Telnet connection. In-band remote management is
possible through Webview or any SNMP compliant Network Management
Software.
Local Management provides the ability to manage the 9H532-24, 9H533-24,
9H531-24 and 9H539-24. Local Management information for non-Ethernet HSIMs
or VHSIMs is included in their respective userÕs guide. For details on how to get
manuals, refer to the Related Manuals section.
WebView
The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 modules can be managed using
Cabletron WebView, a browser-based utility. There is no software to install as this
management capability is built into each module.
Remote Monitoring (RMON)
The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 support all nine Ethernet
RMON groups. The Statistics, Alarms, Events and History groups are enabled on
all ports by default.
Cabletron Systems RMON Actions is a vendor-speciÞc extension of RMON and
provides the ability to set an ÒActionÓ on any SNMP MIB variable. The Action can
be triggered by setting an RMON Event and/or Alarm. An example of an Action
would be to turn off a MIB-2 interface if a broadcast threshold is crossed.
1-4
Introduction
Broadcast Suppression
Broadcast Suppression enables a user to set a desired limit of receive broadcast
frames per port/per second to be forwarded out the other ports on the module up
to the set limit. Any broadcast frames above this speciÞed limit are dropped. In
the event that broadcast frames are being suppressed, multicast and unicast
frames continue to be switched.
Port Redirect Function
The Port Redirect function, also referred to as ÒPort Mirroring,Ó is a
troubleshooting tool used to map trafÞc from a single source port to a destination
port within the chassis. This feature allows all packets, including those with
errors, to be copied and sent to an analyzer or RMON probe. The analyzer or
RMON probe will see the data as if it is directly connected to the LAN segment of
the source port.
Flow Control
Flow Control is a method of managing the ßow of frames between two devices. It
ensures that a transmitting device does not overwhelm a receiving device with
data. This enables the receiving device to communicate with the transmitting
device, and to have it pause its transmission while the receiving device processes
the frames already received. Flow control can be enabled or disabled on a port-byport basis. Both devices must support the IEEE 802.3x standard for ßow control to
work.
The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 support the following two types
of ßow control:
¥
¥
frame based 802.3x
back pressure
Frame based 802.3x ßow control is supported on all Ethernet ports operating in
the full duplex mode.
Back pressure ßow control is supported on all Ethernet ports operating in the
standard mode of operation.
802.1p Port Priority
The IEEE 802.1p standard is used to assign a default priority to the frames
received without priority information in their tag header, and to map prioritized
frames to the appropriate transmit queues.
The default priority-to-queue mappings are shown in Table 1-1. This
conÞguration can be changed by the administrator.

Switching Options
The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 provide IEEE Standard-based
802.1 switching or SecureFast Switching Virtual Network Services. In the 802.1
mode (the default mode of operation), the switch functions as an 802.1D switch.
When until VLANs are conÞgured, it operates as an 802.1Q switch.
Standards Compatibility
The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 are fully compliant with the
IEEE 802.3, 802.3x, 802.3u, 802.1Q, and 802.1p standards. The 9H532-24, 9H533-24,
9H531-24 and 9H539-24 provide IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Algorithm (STA)
support to enhance the overall reliability of the network and protect against
ÒloopÓ conditions. The 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 support a
wide variety of industry standard MIBs including RFC 1573 (MIB II), RFC 1271
(RMON), RFC 1493 (Bridge MIB), RFC 1354 (FIB MIB), and RFC 1190 (Path MTU
Discovery). A full suite of Cabletron Systems Enterprise MIBs provide a wide
array of statistical information to enhance troubleshooting.
For information about how to extract and compile individual MIBs, contact
Cabletron Systems.
GARP Switch Operation
Some or all ports on the switch may be activated to operate under the Generic
Attribute Registration Protocol (GARP) applications, GARP VLAN Registration
Protocol (GVRP) and/or GARP Multicast Registration Protocol (GMRP).
GARP is a protocol, or set of rules, that outlines a mechanism for propagating the
port state and/or user information throughout a bridged LAN to keep track of
users and VLANs on the network fabric. MAC bridges and end users alike can
1-6
Introduction
take part in the registration and de-registration of GARP attributes such as VLAN
and multicast group membership.
LANVIEW Diagnostic LEDs
LANVIEW diagnostic LEDs serve as an important troubleshooting aid by
providing an easy way to observe the status of individual ports and overall
network operations.

Installing the SmartSwitch 9000 Module
Using DIP Switch 6
The purpose of DIP switch 6 is to force a Flash download from a BootP server
through the EM-EPIM. The Þrst step in this process is to conÞgure the BootP
server. ConÞgurations of BootP servers can differ from platform to platform and
from one operating system to another. Read the userÕs manual on BootP and TFTP
serving for the correct Þles to edit and the correct Þles to execute for the server.
After conÞguration of the BootP server the module can then have the switch state
changed on dip switch 6 to initiate BootP and TFTP requests.
When the state of dip switch 6 is changed, the module begins requesting a BootP
server in an attempt to receive a Flash image download. The modules boot PROM
initiates a BootP sequence. During this sequence, the module requests an IP
address and a Þlename from the BootP server. The module then requests a TFTP
of the Þle and receives the download of the image. The module will not function
until the Flash image is downloaded from the BootP and TFTP server.
If a BootP and TFTP are not intended at this time, this process may be stopped by
resetting the module. Resetting is done by pushing the reset button on the
module, power cycling the chassis, or removing the module from the chassis and
re-inserting. (See the section titled The Reset Switch on page 2-6.) After resetting,
the module again looks for a BootP server, but will time-out after about four
minutes. After the time-out, the module boots from Flash memory. The next time
the power is cycled, the module will boot from Flash memory and not request the
BootP server.
Installing the Module into the SmartSwitch 9000
Chassis

Cabling Requirements
10BASE-T Network
When connecting a 10BASE-T segment to the front panel ports of a 9H532-24 or a
9H533-24 module, ensure that the network meets the Ethernet network
requirements of the IEEE 802.3 standard for 10BASE-T. If a port is to operate at
100 Mbps, Category 5 cabling must be used. For 10 Mbps operation only,
Category 3 cabling can be used.
100BASE-TX Network
The 9H532-24 and the 9H533-24 support Category 5 UTP cabling with an
impedance between 85 and 111 ohms for 10 and 100 Mbps operation. The device
at the other end of the twisted pair segment must meet IEEE 802.3u 100BASE-TX
Fast Ethernet network requirements for the devices to operate at 100 Mbps. Refer
to the Cabletron Systems Cabling Guide for details.
100BASE-FX Network
The 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 support 100BASE-FX. When connecting a
100BASE-FX segment to any of the front panel ports, ensure that the network
meets the optical performance requirements for 100BASE-FX IEEE 802.3u
standard.
The 9H531-24 supports multimode Þber cables at the 1300 nm wavelength, at
lengths of up to 2 km.
The 9H539-24 supports single mode Þber at the 1300 nm wavelength. Class 1
lasers are used to support single mode 9/125 micon Þber cables up to 15 km in
length.

Technical Overview
SmartSwitch Architecture
The SmartSwitch Architecture of the 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24
modules, as shown in Figure 3-1, are conÞgurable for one of two modes of
operation: traditional IEEE 802.1 switching, or SecureFast switching. The modules
support only one of these modes of operation at any one time.
When operating in traditional IEEE 802.1 switch mode, the 9H532-24, 9H533-24,
9H531-24 and 9H539-24 make Þltering/forwarding decisions based on
Destination Address (DA), with standard IEEE 802.1D learning. 802.1Q VLANs
are also supported.
Spanning tree operation for the 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 may
be conÞgured to adhere to IEEE 802.1D, DEC, or none. The default Spanning Tree
Algorithm is 802.1D.
When operating in SecureFast switch mode, all Þltering/forwarding decisions are
made on a DA-SA pair and its in and out port on a connection-orientated basis.
SecureFast switching mode provides value-added network services including
dynamic VLANs, Topology, Connectivity, IP Multicast, Control, Security,
Application, Address Management, Dynamic Mapping, and Directory services.
For example, Topology Services includes conÞgurable options ranging from
simple spanning tree implementations to fully-meshed active topologies. Other
services and features supported in SecureFast switching mode are described in
detail in the Cabletron SystemÕs White Paper, IP Host Communication in
Bridged, Routed and SecureFast Networks.

System Management Buses
There are two management channels within the SmartSwitch 9000 system: the
SMB-1 and the SMB-10. These buses provide out-of-band management and
inter-module management communication.
3-2
Technical Overview
SMB-1 Bus
The SMB-1 is a 1 Mbps management bus located within the SmartSwitch 9000.
This bus is utilized by all diagnostic controllers in the system including
connectivity modules, power supply modules and the environmental module.
The SMB-1 transports inter-chassis information between system components,
such as power and environmental information, as well as diagnostic messages.
Periodic loop-back tests are performed by all modules that share this bus to
ensure the validity of SMB-1. In the event a failure is detected on SMB-1, the
SMB-10 may be used as an alternate communication channel.
SMB-10 Bus
The SMB-10 is a 10 Mbps management bus located within the SmartSwitch 9000,
which is also used for inter-chassis communication of modules as well as serving
as an out-of-band management channel into the SmartSwitch 9000. The SMB-10 is
externalized from the chassis via an optional Ethernet Port Interface Module
(EPIM) located on the front of the Environmental Module. Through an EPIM
connection, full SNMP management of the SmartSwitch 9000 is available out-ofband from user data. Modules that share the SMB-10 bus periodically send out
loop-back packets to ensure the validity of SMB-10. In the event a fault is detected
on the SMB-10, the SMB-1 can be used as an alternate communication channel by
the modules.
System Diagnostic Controller
This diagnostic controller is composed of a Z-80 microprocessor and its
supporting logic. The diagnostic controller is designed to control the power-up
sequencing of modules, monitor the 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24
input and output power parameters, keep watch over the main host processor, as
well as monitor the temperature and control the SMB LANVIEW diagnostic LED.
Although the diagnostic controller and the main host processor can operate
independent of each other if needed, they exchange information about each
otherÕs status and overall module condition. The information gathered by the
diagnostic controller is available to the network manager via local/remote
management and the LCD located on the Environmental Module. The 9H532-24,
9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 have been designed so that in the event of a
diagnostic controller fault, the 9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 will
continue to function.
3-3
Technical Overview
DC/DC Converter
The DC/DC converter converts the 48 VDC on the system power bus to the
necessary operating voltages for its host network services module. The diagnostic
controller monitors and controls the operation of the DC/DC converter.
INB Interface
Each module attaches to both INB A and INB B and has two INB ASICs. The INB
ASICs use 64-byte Ethernet frames for transmission onto the INBs at 66 MHz.
The 9X5XX modules are fully compatible with the the Þrst generation 9X4XX
modules. The Þrst generation modules communicate only on INB B using a
56-byte canonical frame format, at 40 MHz. If the newer module detects a Þrst
generation module on the backplane, it automatically changes from the fast
66 MHz Ethernet frames, to the Þrst generation compatible 40 MHz canonical
frame on INB B only. INB A is used only by the 9X5XX modules and remains at
the higher speed.
i960 Core
The i960 core provides modules host services, the SNMP protocol stacks, to
support industry standard MIBs, as well as Cabletron enterprise extension MIBs
for each media type. Management services, such as telnet, WebView and network
address to MAC address mapping, are also provided by the i960 core.

LANVIEW LEDs
The front panel LANVIEW LEDs indicate the status of the module and may be
used as an aid in troubleshooting. Figure 4-1 shows the LANVIEW LEDs of the
9H532-24, 9H533-24, 9H531-24 and 9H539-24 module.
The LED Mode Switch
The 9H532-24 and 9H533-24 have an LED mode switch, located on the front
panel, that allows the user to change the function of the switch port LEDs. Refer to
Figure 4-1. When the switch is in the UP position, the LEDs indicate the receive
(RX) and transmit (TX) status of the Þxed ports. When the mode switch is in the
DOWN position, the LEDs indicate at what speed the applicable port is currently
operating (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) and if the applicable port is operating in
standard (half) or full duplex mode.
Table 4-4 and Table 4-5 provide the deÞnitions of the LED states that occur when
the LED mode switch is in the UP position. Table 4-6 and Table 4-7 provide the
deÞnitions of the LED states that occur when the LED mode switch is in the
DOWN position.
