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 highspeed LAN technologies have been proposed to provide
greater bandwidth and improve client/server response times.
Among them, 100BASE-T (Fast Ethernet) provides a nondisruptive, 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 path and takes
advantage of the existing investment in hardware, software,
and personnel training.
1
Switching Technology
Another approach to pushing beyond the limits of Ethernet
technology is the development of switching technology. A
switch bridges Ethernet packets at the MAC address level of
the Ethernet protocol. It transmits packets among connected
Ethernet or Fast Ethernet LAN segments.
Switching is a cost-effective way of increasing the total
network bandwidth available to users on a local area
network.
A switch divides a local area network into
multiple, separate segments. Each segment has it’s own full
Ethernet or Fast Ethernet bandwidth that doesn’t compete
with the other segments for network transmission.
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 and blocks traffic
that does not need to be transmitted. By doing this the total
network bandwidth is multiplied, while still maintaining the
same network cabling and adapter cards.
For Fast Ethernet networks, a switch is an effective way of
eliminating the problem 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 a Fast Ethernet network beyond the 205-meter
network diameter limit.
Switches supporting both
traditional 10Mbps Ethernet and 100Mbps Fast Ethernet
are ideal for bridging between existing 10Mbps networks and
new 100Mbps networks.
2
Switching LAN technology is a marked improvement over
the previous generation of network bridges, which were
characterized by higher latencies. Today switches are an
ideal solution to most kinds of local area network congestion
problems.
Features
The DSS-5+ was designed for easy installation and high
performance in an environment where network traffic and
the number of users increases continuously.
Designed with the small and medium network in mind, the
DSS-5+ comes in a small and compact size. Whether used to
connect 10Mb and 100Mb network segments and servers
together, or to extend an existing switched network, it has
the necessary speed to do the job.
The DSS-5+ is expandable by cascading two or more
switches together. All ports support up to 200Mbps. Any
one of its five ports may be used to cascade to an additional
switch to open a Full-Duplex Fast Ethernet pipe. The DSS5+ is a perfect choice for sites planning to upgrade to Fast
Ethernet in the future. Ethernet workgroups can connect to
the DSS-5+ now, and upgraded Fast Ethernet adapters and
hubs can be added anytime later without requiring any
change to the Switch or network configuration.
The Switch combine dynamic memory allocation with storeand-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.
3
The Switch is an unmanaged 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch
that offers solutions in accelerating small Ethernet
workgroup bandwidth. Other key features are:
Auto-MDI (media dependent interface) port 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 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 wirespeed for 100Mbps speed.
Data filtering rate eliminates all error packets, runts, etc., per port at wirespeed for 10Mbps speed.

U NPACKING
AND
S ETUP
This chapter provides unpacking and setup information for
DSS-5+.
Unpacking
Open the shipping cartons of the Switch and carefully
unpacks its contents.
The carton should contain the
following items:
One DSS-5+ 5-port 10/100Mbps Switch
One external power adapter
This User’s Guide
If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your
local reseller for replacement.
Setup
The setup of DSS-5+ can be performed using the following
steps:
The surface must support at least 1.5 Kg for the Switch.
The power outlet should be within 1.82 meters (6 feet) of the Switch.
Visually inspect the DC power jack and make sure that it is fully secured to
the power adapter.
Make sure that there is proper heat dissipation from and adequate
ventilation around the Switch. Do not place heavy objects on the Switch.

DC Power Jack: Power is supplied through an external AC
power adapter. Check the technical specification section for
information about the AC power input voltage.
Since the switch does not include a power switch, plugging
6
its power adapter into a power outlet will immediately power
it on.
Auto-MDI Jacks:
These jacks supports automatic MDI/MDIX crossover detection
function gives true ‘plug and play’ capability without the need of
confusing crossover cables or crossover ports.
With the Auto-MDI function, you just need to plug-in the network
cable to the hub directly and no need to care if the end node is NIC
(Network Interface Card) or switches and hubs.
LED Indicators
Power Indicator (PWR)
This LED indicator lights green when the hub is receiving power,
otherwise, it is off
Link/Act:
This indicator light green when the port is connected to a station, if the
indicator blinking will be transmitting or received data on the
network.
100M:
If this indicator light green, mean this port is connected to a 100M
Fast Ethernet station. Otherwise, this indicators reminds off, mean this
port is connected to a 10M Ethernet station.
FDX/COL:
This LED indicator light green when a respective port is in full duplex
(FDX) mode. Otherwise, it is blinking when collisions are occurring
on the respective port

C ONNECTING T HE S WITCH
This chapter describes how to connect the DSS-5+ to your
Fast Ethernet network.
PC to Switch
A PC can be connected to the Switch via a two-pair Category
3,4, or5 UTP/STP straight-through cable. For 100Mbps
operation Category 5 must be used. The PC (equipped with
a RJ-45 10Mb Ethernet or 100Mb Fast Ethernet NIC) should
be connected to any of the 5 ports (1x - 5x) for the DSS-5+.
The LED indicators for PC connection are dependent on the
LAN card capabilities. If the LED indicators do not light
after making a proper connection, check the PC LAN card,
the cable, the Switch conditions and connections.
Hub to Switch
A hub (10 or 100BASE-TX) can be connected to the Switch
via a two-pair Category 3, 4, or 5 UTP/STP straight cable.
For 100Mbps operation a Category 5 cable must be used.
The connection is accomplished from any port of the hub to
any port of the Switch
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 Category 5 cable
must be used for 100Mbps operation. The connection can be
done from any (MDI-X) port of the Switch (Switch A) to any
of the 10Mbps, 100Mbps (MDI-X) port of the other switch
8
(switch B) or other devices.
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 autonegotiation or has auto-negotiation disabled, an autosensing process is initiated to select the speed and set the
duplex mode to half-duplex
