Connecting to the Switch Ports
This section describes how to connect to the fixed switch ports and to the SFP module ports. The switch
in the illustrations might be different from your switch, but the instructions apply to all Cisco ME 3800X
and ME 3600X switches.
Connect to 10/100 or 10/100/1000 Ports
When you connect to servers, workstations,
customer-premises equipment (CPE), wireless access
points, and routers, connect a straight-through, twisted
four-pair, Category 5 cable to a switch 10/100 or
10/100/1000 port.
