second management module increases system reliability through redundancy. Each management
module contains a temperature sensor, nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM), and a real-time
clock.
The management module has very high speed and scalable control plane support with an Intel i7 dual
core CPU which will run at 2 GHz, 1 GB compact flash and 2 GB ECC DDR3 SDRAM.

ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (Formerly BlackDiamond X Series) Modules and Fans
The following sections describe the functions and features of the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly
BlackDiamond X Series) management modules:
• Redundant Management Module Activity on page 16
• Features of the Management Module on page 16
• Management Module LEDs on page 17
Redundant Management Module Activity
The switch can operate with a single management module installed or with two management modules
installed for redundancy.
When you install a second management module, one of the management modules operates as the
primary, and the other becomes the secondary or backup. The management modules are solely
responsible for upper-layer protocol processing and system management functions and do not carry
data plane traffic between I/O slots.
When you save the switch configuration, it is saved to all installed management modules.
Selection of the primary management module occurs automatically. The following examples describe
the selection process:
• When a switch boots with two management modules installed, the management module in slot A
becomes the primary.
•
If a switch is operating with one management module and a second management module is added
to the switch after it has been powered up, the added management module becomes the secondary.
Management modules operating in secondary, or backup, mode can be inserted and removed
without disrupting network services.
If you remove the primary management module while the switch is operating, the secondary
management module becomes the primary management module.
For example, if you have a switch with a primary management module in slot A and a secondary
management module in slot B, and you remove the primary management module from slot A, the
secondary, or backup, management module in slot B becomes the primary.
Features of the Management Module
Management modules have the following features on the front panel:
•
•
Management1 port : The 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet management port allows you to connect an
Ethernet cable directly from your laptop to the management port to view and locally manage the
switch configurations. This port can also be used to connect the system to a parallel management
network for administration.
Two USB ports: These ports allow you to attach a single external USB 2.0 flash drive for
downloading new software or rescuing an image. Only one of these ports can be used at any one
time. Only a USB flash drive that is formatted using the file allocation table (FAT) file system is
recognized on this port. Other devices, such as a USB external hard drive, will not be mounted.

No configuration information is stored on the I/O modules; all configuration information is stored on the
management modules.
When a switch is powered on, the software generates a default configuration for any slots that contain
I/O modules. The default configuration allows the I/O module ports to participate in the VLAN named

You can configure parameters of an I/O module after it is installed, or preconfigure a slot for a certain
type of module and configuration. The preconfigured information is applied to the module after it is
inserted.
Caution
If you preconfigure the I/O module type for a slot and then insert a different type of I/O
module into that slot, ExtremeXOS will detect a mismatch and will not power on the module
or generate any kind of default configuration.
See the ExtremeXOS 16.2 User Guide and the ExtremeXOS 16.2 Command Reference Guide for featurespecific information related to ExtremeSwitching X8 Series modules.

3 Power Supplies
PSU Redundancy in the Chassis
AC Power Supply
ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly BlackDiamond X Series) switches are powered by AC power
supplies that are installed at the top front of the chassis.
Warning
Field operators must not attempt to open the power supply enclosure for any reason; the
power supply does not contain user-serviceable parts. In the event of failure, return the
defective power supply to Extreme Networks for repair or replacement.
The power supply bay in the switch can accommodate up to eight AC power supplies.
Note
AC power supplies are ordered separately from the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series chassis.
The AC power supplies can operate from 110 VAC or 220 VAC and automatically adjust to the supply
voltage. With 220 VAC input, the AC power supplies can operate in an N+N or N+1 configuration.
Depending upon the load, with 110 VAC input the AC power supplies can operate in an N+N or N+1
configuration as well.
Power supplies in the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series are fully fault tolerant and load-sharing in an N+1
configuration. After the system is properly configured, if one power supply fails, the others provide
sufficient power to operate a fully loaded switch.
For more information on redundancy in the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series chassis, see PSU Redundancy
in the Chassis on page 31.
PSU Redundancy in the Chassis
The ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly BlackDiamond X Series) chassis has slots for eight power
supply units (PSUs). A power connector is located on the back of each PSU. If all populated PSUs are
powered from 220 VAC, then each PSU is capable of supplying about 2500 W to the chassis. If any PSU
is powered by 120 VAC, then each PSU is capable of supplying about 1250 W.
Note
These values, 2500 W and 1250 W, are approximations. When several PSUs are installed in a
system, the actual power per PSU decreases by up to 10 percent. This decrease is taken into
account when a system is configured.
ExtremeSwitching X8 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide for version 1.0
31
Power Supplies
The following topics describe how N+1 and N+N redundancy apply to the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series
PSUs. Extreme Networks sales personnel can advise you on how much power to allocate for each
module in your system and on the maximum power output each PSU can deliver. They can help you
determine how many PSUs are needed to achieve the desired redundancy.
N+1 Redundancy
To ensure that the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly BlackDiamond X Series) equipment will
operate properly in the event of a single PSU failure, calculate how many PSUs are needed to power all
the modules and fan trays in the configuration.
Do the following to calculate the number of PSUs needed for N+1 redundancy:
1
Add up the total power consumptions of all the management modules, I/O modules, fabric modules,
and fan trays in the system.
2 Divide the total power consumption by either 2500 or 1250 (depending on line voltage), and round
the result up to the next whole integer. This number is N.
3 Add 1 to N to get the total number of PSUs needed for N+1 redundancy.
If more modules are added to the chassis, more PSUs may be needed to maintain N+1 redundancy. N+1
redundancy is possible with any existing chassis configuration, even if the line voltage is 120 VAC.
N+N Redundancy
N+N refers to power source redundancy. For instance, a data center may have two independent power
sources available so that if one source fails, the other source (backup) will automatically take over and
power the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly BlackDiamond X Series) chassis.
To achieve N+N redundancy, the top row of PSUs (Bank A) should be powered from the same facility
power source – that is, plugged into power circuits derived from a single power source. The bottom row
of PSUs (Bank B) should be powered from the backup power source.
You must install enough PSUs in each bank to power the entire chassis. If the line voltage is 220 VAC, it
is likely that the entire chassis can be powered with four PSUs. If the line voltage is 120 VAC, most
configurations can be powered by four PSUs.
Simultaneous N+1 and N+N Redundancy
To achieve both N+1 and N+N redundancy at the same time, three (or fewer) PSUs must be capable of
powering the entire ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly BlackDiamond X Series) chassis. Each bank
of PSUs should be populated with enough PSUs to power the chassis (N) plus one more chassis (N+1).
AC Power Supply
The AC power supply for the ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly BlackDiamond X Series) delivers
2500 W when operated from 185 to 264 VAC, or 1250 W when operated from 90 to 140 VAC.

Each ExtremeSwitching X8 Series AC power supply unit contains two cooling fans at the front of the
unit. Airflow is from front to back.
The AC power supply does not contain a field-replaceable fuse.
Warning
Field operators must not attempt to configure or replace fuses in Extreme Networks AC
power supplies. In the event of failure, immediately return the defective power supply for a
complete replacement.

Site Preparation
Wiring Closet Considerations
Be aware of the following recommendations for your wiring closet:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Be sure that your system is easily accessible for installation and service. See Rack Specifications and
Recommendations on page 38 for information.
Use appropriate AC or DC power, power distribution, and grounding for your specific installation.
Use a vinyl floor covering in your wiring closet. (Concrete floors accumulate dust, and carpets can
cause static electricity.)
Prevent unauthorized access to wiring closets by providing door locks. Install the equipment in a
secured, enclosed, and restricted access location, ensuring that only qualified service personnel have
access to the equipment.
Provide adequate overhead lighting for easy maintenance.
Be sure that each wiring closet has a suitable ground. All distribution racks and equipment installed
in the closet should be grounded.
Be sure that all system environmental requirements are met, such as ambient temperature and
humidity.
Note
We recommend that you consult an electrical contractor for commercial building and wiring
specifications.
Temperature
Extreme Networks equipment generates a significant amount of heat. It is essential that you provide a
temperature-controlled environment for both performance and safety.
Install the equipment only in a temperature- and humidity-controlled indoor area that is free of airborne
materials that can conduct electricity. Too much humidity can cause a fire. Too little humidity can
produce electrical shock and fire.
Follow these general thermal recommendations for your wiring closet:
•
•
•
•
•
Be sure that the ventilation in the wiring closet is adequate to maintain a temperature below 104°F
(40°C).
Install a reliable air conditioning and ventilation system.
Keep the ventilation in the wiring closet running during non-business hours; otherwise, the
equipment can overheat.
Maintain an ambient operating temperature of 32° to 104°F (0° to 40°C).
Maintain a storage temperature of -40° to 158°F (-40° to 70°C).
Note
As with all electrical equipment, Extreme Networks product lifetimes degrade with increased
temperature. If possible, temperatures should be kept at approximately 78°F (25°C) or lower.
ExtremeSwitching X8 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide for version 1.0
37
Site Preparation
Humidity
To maximize equipment life, keep operating humidity between 50% and 70% relative humidity (noncondensing) during typical operation. The equipment can operate between 10% and 93% relative
humidity (non-condensing) for short intervals.
Spacing and Airflow
Be sure that walls and other equipment do not block the air intake or outflow on an Extreme Networks
switch.
•
•
Leave a minimum of 24 inches (61 cm) between any solid wall or other obstruction and the front and
back of the chassis.
Measure the air temperature approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the front of I/O slot 1. The
temperature should be less than 104 °F (40 °C).
Electrostatic Discharge
Your system must be protected from static electricity or electrostatic discharge (ESD).
•
•
•
Remove materials that can cause electrostatic generation (such as synthetic resins) from the
equipment location. Check the appropriateness of floor mats and flooring.
Connect metal chassis, conduit, and other metals to ground using dedicated copper grounding lines.
Use electrostatically safe equipment.
If you are working with pluggable interface modules, wear an ESD-preventive device such as a wrist
strap, and connect the metal end to a grounded equipment rack or other source of ground.
Figure 16: Using an ESD-preventive Wrist Strap
Rack Specifications and Recommendations
Racks should conform to conventional standards. In the United States, use EIA Standard RS-310C:
Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment. In countries other than the United States, use IEC Standard
297. In addition, verify that your rack meets the basic mechanical, space, and earthquake requirements
that are described in this section.
Mechanical Recommendations for the Rack
Use equipment racks that meet the following mechanical recommendations:
ExtremeSwitching X8 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide for version 1.0
38
Site Preparation
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use an open style, 19-inch rack to facilitate easy maintenance and to provide proper ventilation.
Use a rack made of steel or aluminum.
The rack should use the universal mounting rail hole pattern that is identified in IEC Standard 297.
The rack should have designated earth grounding connections (typically on the base).
The rack must meet earthquake safety requirements equal to that of the installed chassis.
The mounting holes should be flush with the rails to accommodate the chassis.
The rack should support approximately 1,260 pounds (572 kg).
Protective Grounding for the Rack
Use a rack grounding kit and a ground conductor that is carried back to earth or to another suitable
building ground.
All Extreme Networks switches are designed with mounting brackets that provide solid metal-to-metal
connection to the rack. If you do not use equipment racks, you can attach wiring terminals directly to
the mounting brackets for appropriate grounding. Extreme Networks switches have grounding
terminals that are mounted on the back of the chassis.
Note
Because building codes vary worldwide, We strongly recommend that you consult an
electrical contractor to ensure proper equipment grounding for your specific installation.
At a minimum, follow these guidelines to ground equipment racks to the earth ground:
•
•
CAD weld appropriate wire terminals to building I-beams or earth ground rods.
Use the appropriate chassis grounding wire for your system; the correct size depends on the
available input current to the power supply. For AC systems using a 20A breaker per PSU, the
chassis ground can be as small as 14 AWG. The power cable ground should be the same size as the
primary.
Note
For complete details on power supplies and power supply cords, refer to Power Supplies
for ExtremeSwitching X8 Series Switches on page 127 and to Selecting Power Supply
Cords on page 114. Drill and tap wire terminals to equipment racks.
•
•
Position the earth ground as close to the equipment rack as possible to maintain the shortest wiring
distance possible.
Use a ground impedance tester or micro-ohm meter to test the quality of earth ground connection
at the chassis. This will ensure good grounding between the chassis, rack, and earth ground.
Space Requirements for the Rack
Provide enough space in front of and behind the switch so that you can service it easily. Allow a
minimum of 48 inches (122 cm) in front of the rack and 24 inches (61 cm) behind the rack. When using a
relay (two-post) rack, provide a minimum of 24 inches (61 cm) of space behind the mounted
equipment. Extra room on each side is optional.

Cable Installation
Consider the following recommendations when you connect cable to your network equipment:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Examine cable for cuts, bends, and nicks.
Support cable using a cable manager that is mounted above connectors to avoid unnecessary
weight on the cable bundles.
Use cable management hardware to route cable bundles to the left and right of the network
equipment to maximize accessibility to the connectors.
Provide enough slack, approximately 2 to 3 inches (5.08 to 7.62 cm), to provide proper strain relief.
Bundle cable using Velcro straps to avoid damaging cables.
If you build your own cable, be sure that connectors are properly crimped.
When installing a patch panel using twisted pair wiring, untwist no more than 1/4 inch (6.4 mm) of
the cable to avoid radio frequency (RF) interference.
ExtremeSwitching X8 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide for version 1.0
43
Site Preparation
•
•
•
Discharge the RJ-45 Ethernet cable before plugging it into a port on the switch.
Use plenum-rated cable when it is necessary for safety and fire rating requirements. Consult your
local building codes to determine when it is appropriate to use plenum-rated cable, or refer to IEC
standard 850.
Keep all ports and connectors free of dust.
Caution
Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable can build up ESD charges when being pulled into a new
installation. Before connecting any category 5 UTP cable to the switch, discharge ESD from
the cable by plugging the RJ-45 connector into a LAN Static Discharge device or use an
equivalent method.
Handling Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cable must be handled carefully during installation. Every cable has a minimum bend radius,
for example, and fibers will be damaged if the cables are bent too sharply. It is also important not to
stretch the cable during installation. We recommend that the bend radius for fiber optic cable equal 2
inches (5.08 cm) minimum for each 90 degree turn as shown in the figure below.
Note
Kinks and sharp bends can destroy or impair the cable’s ability to convey light pulses
accurately from one end of the cable to the other. Use care in dressing the optical fiber cables:
provide satisfactory strain relief to support the cable and maintain an adequate bend radius at
all cable turns, particularly where the cable connects to the I/O module.
Figure 18: Bend Radius for Fiber Optic Cable
Radio Frequency Interference
If you use UTP cabling in an installation, take precautions to avoid RF interference. RF interference can
cause degradation of signal quality, and, in an Ethernet network environment, can cause excessive
collisions, loss of link status, or other physical layer problems that can lead to poor performance or loss
of communication.
To prevent RF interference, avoid the following situations:
ExtremeSwitching X8 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide for version 1.0
44
Site Preparation
•
•
•
•
•
•
Attaching UTP cable to AC power cables
Routing UTP cable near antennas, such as an amateur radio antenna
Routing UTP cable near equipment that could exhibit RF interference, such as ARC welding
equipment
Routing UTP cable near electrical motors that contain coils
Routing UTP cable near air conditioner units
Routing UTP cable near electrical transformers
In areas or applications where these situations cannot be avoided, use fiber optic cabling or shielded
twisted pair cabling (STP).
Power Supply Requirements
Follow these recommendations when you plan power supply connections for your Extreme Networks
equipment:
•
•
•
•
Place the equipment in an area that accommodates the power consumption and component heat
dissipation specifications.
Be sure that your power supply meets the site DC power or AC power requirements of the network
equipment.
When you connect power to installed equipment, do not make this connection through an extension
cord or power strip.
If your switch includes more than one power supply, connect each power supply to different,
independent power sources.
If a power source fails, it will affect only the power supply to which it is connected. If all switch power
supplies are connected to a single power source, the entire switch is vulnerable to a power source
failure.
•
In regions that are susceptible to electrical storms, Extreme Networks recommends that you plug
your system into a surge suppressor.
Warning
The chassis does not have a switch for turning power to the unit on and off. For systems using
an AC power supply, power to the chassis is disconnected by removing the wall plug from the
electrical outlet. For systems using a DC SSI power supply, power to the chassis can be turned
off by lifting the handle on the power supply or by de-energizing the circuit that feeds the
power supply, which is usually accomplished by turning off a circuit breaker.

Warning
For systems using an AC power supply, unplug the AC power cords from the back of the
chassis to disconnect the power to the chassis.
Warning
Disconnect all power supply cords before servicing.
Débranchez tous les cordons d'alimentation avant l'entretien.
AC Power Cord Requirements
AC power input cords are not included with ExtremeSwitching X8 Series (formerly BlackDiamond X
Series) power supplies. You can purchase AC power cords for use in the US and Canada from Extreme
Networks or from your local supplier.
Make sure that the power cord you use is certified for the country of end use and suitable for the device.
Check your local electrical codes and regulatory agencies for power cable requirements.
The power cord must meet the requirements listed in Selecting Power Supply Cords on page 114.
Warning
A dedicated Listed circuit breaker rated at 20A is to be used for each power supply
connection.
Un disjoncteur Listed dédié évalué à 20A doit être utilisée pour chaque connexion
d'alimentation.
Uninterruptible Power Supply Requirements
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that sits between a power supply (such as a wall
outlet) and a device (such as a switch) to prevent outages, sags, surges, and bad harmonics from
adversely affecting the performance of the device.
A UPS traditionally can perform the following functions:
•
•
•
•
Absorb relatively small power surges.
Smooth out noisy power sources.
Continue to provide power to equipment during line sags.
Provide power for some time after a blackout has occurred.
In addition, some UPS or UPS plus software combinations provide the following functions:
•
•
•
•
Automatically shut down equipment during long power outages.
Monitor and log power supply status.
Display the voltage (current draw) of the equipment.
Restart equipment after a long power outage.
ExtremeSwitching X8 Series Switches Hardware Installation Guide for version 1.0
46
Site Preparation
•
•
•
Display the voltage currently on the line.
Provide alarms on certain error conditions.
Provide short circuit protection.
Selecting a UPS
To determine UPS requirements for your switch, answer these questions:
•
•
•
•
What are the amperage requirements?
What is the longest potential time period that the UPS would be required to supply backup power?
Where will the UPS be installed?
What is the maximum transition time that your installation will allow?
Note
We recommend that you use a UPS that provides online protection.
Calculating Volt-Amperage Requirements
To calculate the volt-amperage requirements for your equipment, follow these steps:
1
Multiply the number of power supply units by 2500 W to get VA. If the equipment is to be operated
from a 110 VAC source, then multiply the number of PSUs by 1250 W to get VA.
VA = Volts multiplied by Amperes
2 Add 30 percent to the total (recommended by Extreme Networks) to determine the minimum voltamperage requirements for your UPS.
UPS Transition Time
Transition time is the time that is necessary for the UPS to transfer from utility power to full-load battery
power. For Extreme Networks products, a transition time of less than 20 milliseconds is required for
optimum performance.

jederzeit parat haben, wenn Sie mit Komponenten umgehen, die empfindlich gegenüber
elektrostatischer Aufladung sind.
Die Kabel sind spannungsfrei zu installieren. Verwenden Sie Kabelbinder oder sonstige
Zugentlastungsvorrichtungen.
Kabelverlegung für LAN-Systeme
Extreme Networks-Geräte erfüllen die Anforderungen für Geräte für LAN-Systeme.
LAN-Systeme sind für gebäudeinterne Installationen konzipiert, das heißt, die Kabel zwischen den
einzelnen Einheiten müssen im gleichen Gebäude verlaufen, in dem auch die Geräte untergebracht.
Hiervon ausgenommen sind nur die unten aufgeführten Bedingungen.
Laut dem US-amerikanischen National Electrical Code (NEC) darf diese Ausrüstung zwischen
Gebäuden verbunden werden, sofern eine der folgenden Bedingungen erfüllt ist:
• Die Länge der zwischen Gebäuden verlegten Kabel beträgt höchsten 140 Fuß.
• Die Kabel sind zwischen den Gebäuden direkt erdverlegt.
• Die Kabel zwischen den Gebäuden sind in einem unterirdischen Kanal verlegt, wobei ein
durchgehender metallischer Kabelschirm oder eine durchgehende Metallleitung, die das Kabel
umschließt, an den Erdungselektrodensystemen der einzelnen Gebäude angeschlossen ist.
Caution
Eine Missachtung dieser Bedingungen für die Kabelverlegung kann Nutzer der Gefahr eines
elektrischen Stromschlages aussetzen und das Gerät so beschädigen, dass es nicht mehr
einwandfrei arbeitet.
Die Ethernet-Anschlüsse des Gerätes und der zugehörigen Baugruppen sind nur für
gebäudeinterne (innerhalb ein und desselben Gebäudes) Verbindungen oder für Anschlüsse
an nicht exponierte Verdrahtungen oder Verkabelungen geeignet (siehe die oben
aufgeführten Bedingungen). Die Ethernet-Anschlüsse des Gerätes und der zugehörigen
Baugruppen dürfen nicht mit Metallkontakt an Schnittstellen angeschlossen werden, die mit
einer externen Anlage (Outside Plant, OSP) oder deren Verdrahtung verbunden sind.
Ethernet-Schnittstellen sind nur für eine Verwendung als gebäudeinterne Schnittstellen
konzipiert (sog. Ports vom Typ 2 oder Typ 4 gemäß GR-1089-CORE, Ausgabe 6) und müssen
durch Isolierung von exponierter OSP-Verdrahtung getrennt werden. Primäre Protektoren
sind kein ausreichender Schutz für den Anschluss dieser Schnittstellen über einen
Metallkontakt mit OSP-Verdrahtung.
Diese Warnung gilt nicht für Ports vom Typ T1/E1, weil diese Ports über eine integrierte
Isolierung und einen Schutz vor Spannungsspitzen verfügen, der den Anschluss an OSPVerdrahtung gestattet.
