The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when
the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a
residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate
radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television
reception. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in
part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class
A or Class B digital devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct
any interference to radio or television communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco
equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by
using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television
or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Introduction
The Cisco Global Site Selector 4490 is a networking product that provides site
selection services that are critical for disaster recovery deployments involving
Internet and intranet data centers. The GSS globally load balances traffic between
geographically distributed data centers managed by other server load balancers
(SLBs) such as Cisco Content Services Switches and Cisco Content Switching
Modules, IOS SLBs, and Cisco LocalDirectors. The GSS is the cornerstone of
disaster recovery in such distributed deployments and enables businesses to
confidently deploy global Internet and intranet applications with the knowledge
that users will be quickly routed to standby data centers should problems occur.

Chapter 1
Introduction
System Hardware Features
The Global Site Selector 4490 is deployed at strategic locations within your
network. The GSS performs two major functions when deployed with other SLBs:
•
It takes an active role in the domain name server (DNS) infrastructure,
connecting clients to SLBs that support the requested website.
•
It continuously monitors the load and availability of SLBs in its network,
selecting the SLB that is most able to answer each client request.
By off-loading DNS resolution from traditional DNS servers, the GSS optimizes
global site selection and increases DNS responsiveness. And through its
monitoring of load and availability the GSS increases the fault tolerance and
scalability of large websites and data centers.
System Hardware Features
The Cisco Global Site Selector 4490 is configured for AC-input power and has a
single AC-input power supply. The GSS 4490 comes with an integrated dual-port
Ethernet controller. This controller provides an interface for connecting to
10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps networks.
The GSS 4490 has two 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-TX Ethernet ports
with RJ-45 receptacles. Both Ethernet ports support autonegotitate, full-duplex,
or half-duplex operation on an Ethernet LAN.

78-15755-02
Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
Safety Guidelines
•
Position cables and power cords carefully; route cables and the power cord
and plug so that they cannot be stepped on or tripped over. Be sure that
nothing rests on your system components’ cables or power cord.
•
Do not modify power cables or plugs. Consult a licensed electrician or your
power company for site modifications. Always follow your local or national
wiring rules.
Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge
Static electricity can harm delicate components inside the GSS 4490. Electrostatic
discharge (ESD) damage occurs when electronic cards or components are
mishandled and can result in complete or intermittent failures. To prevent static
damage, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your
system’s electronic components. You can do so by touching an unpainted metal
surface on the chassis.
You can also take the following steps to prevent damage from ESD:
•
Always wear an ESD-preventive wrist or ankle strap when handling
electronic components. Connect one end of the strap to an ESD jack or an
unpainted metal component on the system (such as a captive installation
screw).
•
When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not
remove the component from the antistatic packing material until you are
ready to install the component in your system. Just before unwrapping the
antistatic packaging, be sure to discharge static electricity from your body.
Place the removed component on an antistatic surface or in a static shielding bag.
•
When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic
container or packaging.
•
Handle all sensitive components in a static-safe area. If possible, use
antistatic floor pads and workbench pads.
•
Avoid contact between the cards and clothing. The wrist strap only protects
the card from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still
cause damage.

Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
Safety Guidelines
Rack Installation Safety Guidelines
Before installing your GSS 4490 in a rack, review the following guidelines:
•
Two or more people are required to install the device in a rack.
•
Ensure that the room air temperature is below 95°F (35°C).
•
Do not block any air vents; usually 6 inches (15.24 cm) of space provides
proper airflow.
•
Plan the device installation starting from the bottom of the rack.
•
Install the heaviest device in the bottom of the rack.
•
Do not extend more than one device out of the rack at the same time.
•
Connect the GSS 4490 to a properly grounded outlet.
•
Do not overload the power outlet when installing multiple devices in the rack.
•
Do not place any object weighing more than 110 lb (50 kg) on top of
rack-mounted devices.
Ensuring Proper Airflow
Observe the following general precautions to ensure proper airflow:
•
Install the system in an open rack whenever possible. If installation in an
enclosed rack is unavoidable, ensure that the rack has adequate ventilation.
•
Maintain ambient airflow to ensure normal operation. If the airflow is
blocked or restricted, or if the intake air is too warm, an overtemperature
condition can occur.
•
Allow at least 6 inches (15.24 cm) of clearance around the ventilation
openings of the chassis.
•
Avoid placing the system in an overly congested rack or directly next to
another equipment rack. Heat exhaust from other equipment can enter the
inlet air vents and cause an overtemperature condition.
•
Equipment near the bottom of a rack might generate excessive heat that is
drawn upward and into the intake ports of the equipment above. The warm air
can cause an overtemperature condition in the equipment above.
Cisco Global Site Selector 4490 Hardware Installation Guide

78-15755-02
Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
Safety Guidelines
•
Ensure that cables from other equipment do not obstruct the airflow through
the chassis or impair access to the power supplies or cards. Route cables away
from field-replaceable components to avoid disconnecting cables
unnecessarily for equipment maintenance or upgrades.
Stabilizing the System
Observe the following general precautions to stabilize the system:
•
Install any stabilizers that came with your equipment rack before mounting
or servicing the system in the rack.
•
Load the rack from the bottom to the top, with the heaviest system at the
bottom.
•
Do not stack the system on top of any other equipment. If the system falls, it
can cause severe bodily injury and damage the equipment.
•
If you are using an equipment shelf, ensure that the shelf is constructed to
support the weight and dimensions of the chassis.
•
If you are using a telco rack, ensure that the weight of the chassis does not
make the rack unstable. Secure the telco rack with ceiling brackets if the rack
is populated with heavy equipment.
•
Bolt the rack to the floor for stability.
Lifting the System
Observe the following general precautions when lifting the system:
•
Disconnect all power and external cables before lifting the system.
•
Ensure that your footing is solid and the weight of the system is evenly
distributed between your feet.
•
Lift the system slowly, keeping your back straight. Lift with your legs, not
with your back. Bend at the knees, not at the waist.
•
Depending on the weight of the system, more than one person might be
required to lift it.

When you install a Global Site Selector 4490 on a workbench or tabletop, ensure
that the surface is clean and in a safe location and that you have considered the
following:
•
The chassis should be installed off the floor. (Dust that accumulates on the
floor is drawn into the interior of the chassis by the cooling fans. Excessive
dust inside the GSS 4490 can cause overtemperature conditions and
component failures.)
•
There must be approximately 19 inches (48.26 cm) of clearance at the front
and rear of the chassis for accessing network cables or equipment.
•
The GSS 4490 must receive adequate ventilation (it is not being installed in
an enclosed cabinet where ventilation is inadequate).
Follow these steps to install the GSS 4490 on a workbench or tabletop:
1.
Remove any debris and dust from the tabletop or workbench, as well as from
the surrounding area. Also make sure that your path between the GSS 4490
and its new location is unobstructed.
2.
Attach the rubber feet to the bottom of the chassis. The rubber feet have an
adhesive backing. Peel the protective tape off the adhesive and stick the feet
to the bottom of a clean chassis surface. Place one foot in each corner.
3.
Place the chassis on the tabletop or workbench.
4.
Ensure that no exhaust air from other equipment will be drawn into the
chassis. Also, ensure that there is adequate clearance at the front and rear of
the chassis.

Maintaining the Cisco Global Site
Selector 4490
Proper use of preventive maintenance procedures can keep the Cisco Global Site
Selector 4490 in top operating condition and minimize the need for costly,
time-consuming service procedures. This chapter contains maintenance
procedures that you should perform regularly.
This chapter includes the following major sections:
•
Maintaining Your Site Environment
•
Using Power Protection Devices
Maintaining Your Site Environment
An exhaust fan in the power supply cools the power supply and system by drawing
air in through various openings in the system and blowing it out the back.
However, the fan also draws dust and other particles into the system, causing
contaminant buildup, which results in an increase in the system’s internal
temperature and interferes with the operation of various system components.
To avoid these conditions, we recommend keeping your work environment clean
to reduce the amount of dust and dirt around the system, thereby reducing the
amount of contaminants drawn into the system by the power supply fan.

Chapter 5
Maintaining the Cisco Global Site Selector 4490
Maintaining Your Site Environment
This section discusses various environmental factors that can adversely affect
system performance and longevity. It covers:
•
Temperature
•
Humidity
•
Altitude
•
Dust and Particles
•
Corrosion
•
Electrostatic Discharge
•
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference
•
Magnetism
•
Power Source Interruptions
Temperature
Temperature extremes can cause a variety of problems, including premature aging
and failure of chips or mechanical failure of devices. Extreme temperature
fluctuations can cause chips to become loose in their sockets and can cause
expansion and contraction of disk drive platters, resulting in read or write data
errors.
To minimize the negative effects of temperature on system performance, follow
these guidelines:
•
Ensure that the system is operated in an environment no colder than 50°F
(10°C) or hotter than 95°F (35°C).
•
Ensure that the system has adequate ventilation. Do not place it within a
closed-in wall unit or on top of cloth, which can act as insulation. Do not
place it in direct sunlight, particularly in the afternoon. Do not place it next
to a heat source of any kind, including heating vents during winter.
Cisco Global Site Selector 4490 Hardware Installation Guide
5-2
78-15755-02
Chapter 5
Maintaining the Cisco Global Site Selector 4490
Maintaining Your Site Environment
Adequate ventilation is particularly important at high altitudes. System
performance may not be optimum when the system is operating at high
temperatures as well as high altitudes.
•
Make sure that all slots and openings on the system remain unobstructed,
especially the fan vent on the back of the system.
•
Clean the system at regular intervals to avoid any buildup of dust and debris,
which can cause a system to overheat.
•
If the system has been exposed to abnormally cold temperatures, allow a
2-hour warm-up period to bring it up to normal operating temperature before
turning it on. Failure to do so may cause damage to internal components,
particularly the hard disk drive.
Humidity
High-humidity conditions can cause moisture migration and penetration into the
system. This moisture can cause corrosion of internal components and
degradation of properties such as electrical resistance, thermal conductivity,
physical strength, and size. Extreme moisture buildup inside the system can result
in electrical shorts, which can cause serious damage to the system.
Each system is rated to operate at 8 to 80 percent relative humidity, with a
humidity gradation of 10 percent per hour. Buildings in which climate is
controlled by air conditioning in the warmer months and by heat during the colder
months usually maintain an acceptable level of humidity for system equipment.
However, if a system is located in an unusually humid location, a dehumidifier can
be used to maintain the humidity within an acceptable range.
Altitude
Operating a system at high altitude (low pressure) reduces the efficiency of forced
and convection cooling and can result in electrical problems related to arcing and
corona effects. This condition can also cause sealed components with internal
pressure, such as electrolytic capacitors, to fail or perform at reduced efficiency.
Each system is rated to operate at a maximum altitude of 6500 feet (2000 meters)
and can be stored at a maximum altitude of 15,000 feet (4570 meters).

Maintaining Your Site Environment
Dust and Particles
A clean operating environment can greatly reduce the negative effects of dust and
other particles, which act as insulators and interfere with the operation of a
system’s mechanical components. Also, in addition to regular cleaning, you
should follow these guidelines to deter contamination of the system equipment:
•
Do not permit smoking anywhere near the system.
•
Do not permit food or drink near the system.
•
Use dust covers when the system is not in use.
•
Close windows and outside doors to keep out airborne particles.
Corrosion
The oil from a person’s fingers or prolonged exposure to high temperature or
humidity can corrode the gold-plated edge connectors and pin connectors on
various devices in the system. This corrosion on system connectors is a gradual
process that can eventually lead to intermittent failures of electrical circuits.
To prevent corrosion, you should avoid touching contacts on boards and cards.
Protecting the system from corrosive elements is especially important in moist
and salty environments, which tend to promote corrosion. Also, as a further
deterrent to corrosion, the system should not be used in extreme temperatures, as
explained in the “Temperature” section.
Electrostatic Discharge
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) results from the buildup of static electricity on the
human body and certain other objects. This static electricity is often produced by
simple movements such as walking across a carpet. ESD is a discharge of a static
electrical charge that occurs when a person whose body contains such a charge
touches a component in the system. This static discharge can cause components,
especially chips, to fail. ESD is a problem particularly in dry environments where
the relative humidity is below 50 percent.
Cisco Global Site Selector 4490 Hardware Installation Guide
5-4
78-15755-02
Chapter 5
Maintaining the Cisco Global Site Selector 4490
Maintaining Your Site Environment
To reduce the effects of ESD, you should observe the following guidelines:
•
Wear a grounding wrist strap. If a grounding wrist strap is unavailable, touch
an unpainted metal surface on the chassis periodically to neutralize any static
charge.
•
Keep components in their antistatic packaging until they are installed.
•
Avoid wearing clothing made of wool or synthetic materials.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) from
a system can adversely affect devices such as radio and television (TV) receivers
operating near the system. Radio frequencies emanating from a system can also
interfere with cordless and low-power telephones. Conversely, RFI from
high-power telephones can cause spurious characters to appear on the system’s
monitor screen.
RFI is defined as any EMI with a frequency above 10 kHz. This type of
interference can travel from the system to other devices through the power cable
and power source or through the air like transmitted radio waves. The Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) publishes specific regulations to limit the
amount of EMI and RFI emitted by computing equipment. Each system meets
these FCC regulations.
To reduce the possibility of EMI and RFI, follow these guidelines:
•
Operate the system only with the system cover installed.
•
Ensure that the screws on all peripheral cable connectors are securely
fastened to their corresponding connectors on the back of the system.
•
Always use shielded cables with metal connector shells for attaching
peripherals to the system.

Magnetism
Because they store data magnetically, hard disk drives are extremely susceptible
to the effects of magnetism. Hard disk drives should never be stored near magnetic
sources such as the following:
•
Monitors
•
TV sets
•
Printers
•
Telephones with real bells
•
Fluorescent lights
Power Source Interruptions
Systems are especially sensitive to variations in voltage supplied by the AC power
source. Overvoltage, undervoltage, and transients (or spikes) can erase data from
memory or even cause components to fail. To protect against these types of
problems, power cables should always be properly grounded and one or both of
the following methods should be used:
•
Use one of the power protection devices described in the “Using Power
Protection Devices” section.
•
Place the system on a dedicated power circuit (rather than sharing a circuit
with other heavy electrical equipment). In general, do not allow the system to
share a circuit with any of the following:
– Copier machines
– Air conditioners
– Vacuum cleaners
– Space heaters
– Power tools
– Teletype machines

78-15755-02
Chapter 5
Maintaining the Cisco Global Site Selector 4490
Using Power Protection Devices
– Adding machines
– Laser printers
– Facsimile machines
– Any other motorized equipment
Besides these appliances, the greatest threats to a system’s supply of power are
surges or blackouts caused by electrical storms. Whenever possible, turn off the
system and any peripherals and unplug them from their power sources
during thunderstorms.
If a blackout occurs—even a temporary one—while the system is turned on, turn
off the system immediately and disconnect it from the electrical outlet. Leaving
the system on may cause problems when the power is restored; all other
appliances left on in the area can create large voltage spikes that can damage
the system.
Using Power Protection Devices
A number of devices are available that protect against power problems such as
power surges, transients, and power failures. The following subsections describe
some of these devices.
Surge Protectors
Surge protectors are available in a variety of types and usually provide a level of
protection commensurate with the cost of the device. Surge protectors prevent
voltage spikes, such as those caused during an electrical storm, from entering a
system through the electrical outlet. Surge protectors, however, do not offer
protection against brownouts, which occur when the voltage drops more than
20 percent below the normal AC line voltage level.
Cisco Global Site Selector 4490 Hardware Installation Guide
78-15755-02
5-7
Chapter 5
Maintaining the Cisco Global Site Selector 4490
Using Power Protection Devices
Line Conditioners
Line conditioners go beyond the overvoltage protection of surge protectors. Line
conditioners keep a system’s AC power source voltage at a fairly constant level
and therefore can handle brownouts. Because of this added protection, line
conditioners cost more than surge protectors—up to several hundred dollars.
However, these devices cannot protect against a complete loss of power.
Uninterruptible Power Supplies
Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems offer the most complete protection
against variations in power because they use battery power to keep the system
running when AC power is lost. The battery is charged by the AC power while it
is available, so once AC power is lost, the battery can provide power to the system
for a limited amount of time—from 15 minutes to an hour or so—depending on
the UPS system.
Surge protectors should be used with all UPS systems, and the UPS system should
be Underwriters Laboratories (UL) safety-approved.

Answers a call on the first ring
•
Disables both hardware and software flow control mechanisms
•
Ignores modem control signals DTR and RTS
•
Suppresses echoing of command mode input
•
Disables recognition of AT commands
Cabling a Modem to the GSS 4490
After you configure the modem, perform the following to cable a modem to the
GSS 4490:
1.
