I NTRODUCTION
This chapter describes the features of the Switch and some
background information about Ethernet/Fast Ethernet
switching technology.
Fast Ethernet Technology
The growing importance of LANs and the increasing
complexity of desktop computing applications are fueling the
need for high performance networks. A number of high-speed
LAN technologies have been proposed to provide greater
bandwidth and improve client/server response times. Among
them, 100BASE-T (Fast Ethernet) provides a non-disruptive,
smooth evolution from the current 10BASE-T technology.
The non-disruptive and smooth evolution nature, and the
dominating potential market base, virtually guarantee cost
effective and high performance Fast Ethernet solutions in
the years to come.
100Mbps Fast Ethernet is a new standard specified by the
IEEE 802.3 LAN committee. It is an extension of the
10Mbps Ethernet standard with the ability to transmit and
receive data at 100Mbps, while maintaining the CSMA/CD
Ethernet protocol. Since the 100Mbps Fast Ethernet is
compatible with all other 10Mbps Ethernet environments, it
provides a straightforward upgrade and takes advantage of
the existing investment in hardware, software, and
personnel training.
3
Switching Technology
Another approach to pushing beyond the limits of Ethernet
technology is the development of switching technology. A
switch bridge Ethernet packets at the MAC address level of
the Ethernet protocol transmitting among connected
Ethernet or Fast Ethernet LAN segments.
Switching is a cost-effective way of increasing the total
network capacity available to users on a local area network.
A switch increases capacity and decreases network loading
by dividing a local area network into different segments,
which don’t compete with each other for network
transmission capacity.
The switch acts as a high-speed selective bridge between the
individual segments. The switch, without interfering with
any other segments, automatically forwards traffic that
needs to go from one segment to another. By doing this the
total network capacity is multiplied, while still maintaining
the same network cabling and adapter cards.
For Fast Ethernet networks, a switch is an effective way of
eliminating problems of chaining hubs beyond the “tworepeater limit.” A switch can be used to split parts of the
network into different collision domains, making it possible
to expand your Fast Ethernet network beyond the 205-meter
network diameter limit for 100BASE-TX networks. Switches
supporting both traditional 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps
Fast Ethernet are also ideal for bridging between the
existing 10Mbps networks and the new 100Mbps networks.
4
Switching LAN technology is a marked improvement over
the previous generation of network bridges, which were
characterized by higher latencies. Routers have also been
used to segment local area networks, but the cost of a router,
the setup and maintenance required make routers relatively
impractical. Today switches are an ideal solution to most
kinds of local area network congestion problems.
Features
The Switches were designed for easy installation and high
performance in an environment where traffic on the network
and the number of user increase continuously.
The Switches with its rack size is specifically designed for
middle to large workgroups. These Switches provide
immediate access to a rapidly growing network through a
wide range of user-reliable functions.
The Switches are ideal for deployment with multiple highspeed servers for shared bandwidth 10Mbps or 100Mbps
workgroups. With the highest bandwidth 200Mbps (100Mbps
full-duplex mode), any port can provide workstations with a
congestion-free data pipe for simultaneous access to the
server.
The Switches are expandable by cascading two or more
switches together. As all ports support 200Mbps, the
Switches can be cascaded from any port and to any number
of switches.
The Switches are a perfect choice for site planning to
5
upgrade to Fast Ethernet in the future.
Ethernet
workgroups can connect to the Switches now, and change
adapters and hubs anytime later without needing to change
the Switches or reconfigure the network.
The Switches combine dynamic memory allocation with
store-and-forward switching to ensure that the buffer is
effectively allocated for each port, while controlling the data
flow between the transmit and receive nodes to guarantee
against all possible packet loss.
The Switches are an unmanaged 10/100 Fast Ethernet
Switch offering solutions in accelerating small Ethernet
workgroup bandwidth. Other key features are:
Auto-MDI function supports automatic MDI/MDIX
crossover detection function gives true ‘plug and play’
capability without the need of confusing crossover
cables or crossover ports.
Store and forward switching scheme capability. As
the result of complete frame checking and error frame
filtering, this scheme prevents error packages from
transmitting among segments.
NWay Auto-negotiation for any port. This allows for
auto-sensing of speed (10/100Mbps) thereby providing
you with automatic and flexible solutions in your
network connections.
Flow control for any port. This minimizes dropped
packets by sending out collision signals when the
port’s receiving buffer is full. Note that flow control
6
is only available in half duplex mode.
Data forwarding rate per port is at wire-speed for
100Mbps speed.
Data forwarding rate per port is at wire-speed for
10Mbps speed.
Data filtering rate eliminates all error packets, runts,
etc., per port at wire-speed for 100Mbps speed.
Data filtering rate eliminates all error packets, runts,
etc., per port at wire-speed for 10Mbps speed.
Up to 8K active MAC address entry table with selflearning and table-aging for 16-port model, up to 8K

Installation
The site where you install the hub stack may greatly affect
its performance. When installing, consider the following
pointers:
Install the Switch in a fairly cool and dry place. See
Appendix B for the acceptable temperature and
humidity operating ranges.
Install the Switch in a site free from strong
electromagnetic field generators (such as motors),
vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.
Leave at least 10cm of space at the front and rear of
the hub for ventilation.
Install the Switch on a sturdy, level surface that can
support its weight, or in an EIA standard-size
equipment rack. For information on rack installation,
see the next section, Rack Mounting.
When installing the Switch on a level surface, attach the
rubber feet to the bottom of each device. The rubber feet
cushion the hub and protect the hub case from scratching.

100Base-FX Module Installation
The installation procedure for each module is the same.
Additional information about each module is provided below.
To install any of the modules: (Includes SC or ST type
connectors)
1. Locate the module slot in the switch’s rear panel.
2. Using a screwdriver, undo the two screws and remove
the dust cover on the module slot.
3. Holding the module component-side up and connectorside in, gently slide the module along the guides and seat
it in the internal connector.
4. Using a screwdriver, replace the two screws and tighten
until snug.
10
We recommend that you retain the dust cover in case you
need to remove the module for an extended period sometime
in the future.
In FSW-1609/2409TFX, the last port (Port 16/24) and the
100BASE-FX port is really the same port. Do not use both
Port 16/24 and the 100BASE-FX port at the same time.
Rack Mounting
The switch can be mounted in an EIA standard-size, 19-inch
rack, which can be placed in a wiring closet with other
equipment. Attach the mounting brackets at the switch’s
front panel (one on each side), and secure them with the
provided screws.
11
Then, use screws provided with the equipment rack to mount
each switch in the rack.

The following are LED indicator possibilities for a PC to
Switch connection:
1.
The “100M LINK/ACT, 10M LINK/ACT” LED
indicator light green for hookup to 100Mbps speed or
light amber for hookup to 10Mbps speed.
2.
The “10/100M FDX, 10/100M COL LED” indicator
depends upon LAN card capabilities for full-duplex or
half-duplex.
16
Hub to Switch
A hub (10 or 100BASE-TX) can be connected to the Switch
via a two-pair Category 3, 4, 5 UTP/STP cable. The
connection is accomplished from the hub uplink (MDI-II)
port to any port of the Switch (MDI-X) ports.
A. 10BASE-T Hub
For a 10BASE-T hub, the Switch LED indicators should light
up as the following:
“10/100M FDX, 10/100M COL” LED indicator is OFF.
“100M LINK/ACT, 10LINK/ACT” LED indicator is
light amber.
B. 100BASE-TX Hub
For a 100BASE-TX hub, the Switch LED indicators should
light up as the following:
“10/100M FDX, 10/100M COL” LED indicator is OFF.
“100M LINK/ACT, 10M LINK/ACT” LED indicator is
light green.
17
Switch to Switch (other devices)
The Switch can be connected to another switch or other
devices (routers, bridges, etc.) via a two-pair Category 3, 4, 5
UTP/STP straight or crossover cable.
A. Using straight cable
When using straight cable, this is done from the uplink
(MDI-II) port of other Switch to any of the 10Mbps or
100Mbps (AUTO MDI-X) port of FSW-1609/2409TFX.
B. Using crossover cable
When using crossover cable, this is done from any (MDI-X)
port of the Switch (Switch A) to any of the 10Mbps, 100Mbps
(AUTO MDI-X) port of FSW-1609/2409TFX.
1.
The “100M LINK/ACT, 10M LINK/ACT” LED
indicator light green for hookup to 100Mbps speed or
light amber for hookup to 10Mbps speed.
2.
The “10/100M FDX, 10/100M COL” LED indicator
depends upon LAN card capabilities for full-duplex or
half-duplex.
18
Port Speed & Duplex Mode
After plugging the selected cable to a specific port, the
system uses auto-negotiation to determine the transmission
mode for any new twisted-pair connection:
If the attached device does not support auto-negotiation or
has auto-negotiation disabled, an auto-sensing process is
initiated to select the speed and set the duplex mode to halfduplex.
