2.2 Product Description - Magnum 6K25e Managed Fiber Switch

The Magnum Managed Fiber Switch boosts the performance of large Ethernet

LANs, typically serving as a “backbone” switch. It has the flexibility to handle a mix of both fiber and twisted-pair switched ports along with Gigabit backbone port options.

Industry-standard IEEE 802.1p QOS prioritization is included, providing high performance switching services for both “smooth” streaming and “bursty” data traffic.

The Magnum 6K25e has up to 25 ports capacity, all of which may be configured as fiber ports, but still offers a space-saving rack-mount chassis that is only

1U (1.70in. or 4.32cm) high. The “mixed-media” capability allows user selection of all popular flavors of fiber port connectors and modes, including even 10Mb fiber along with Gigabit ports. It also allows a mix of 10/100Mb RJ-45 (copper) ports and a fiber

7

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

Gigabit port in the same unit. This flexibility is achieved via a family of 6K25e port modules for copper and fiber-built-in (emphasizing Small Form Factor fiber for high fiber port density), 6-port modules for fiber and RJ-45 combinations, and 1Gb port module selections using GBICs. These modules can be factory configured in a base chassis unit (or may be changed in the field by trained technicians) to adapt the unit to the user’s application and Ethernet cabling requirements. Even evolving mixed-media requirements for 10Mb and 100Mb fiber and copper as well as Gigabit ports can be handled by the Magnum 6K25e product.

The 6K25e managed switches also provides PoE option via Power-pass-through and power –inside PoE modules and allows the users to select a wide option of combo PoE modules to support 802.3af pd devices. See details in sec 5.2.10 and 5.2.11. The Power

Sourcing Equipment (PSE), and are fully compatible with Powered Devices (PD)(e.g wireless access points, IP phones) that comply with the IEEE 802.3af PoE standard. The

PoE switch ports have an auto-sensing algorithm, so that they provide power only to

802.3af, PoE end devices.

PoE is managed by a multi-stage handshake to protect equipment from damage and to manage power budgets

.The PoE ports will discontinue supplying power when the PoE powered devices are disconnected, and support the 802.3af PoE PSE standard for over-current protection, under-current detection, and fault protection.

The packaging and power-input options target the Magnum 6K25e at heavyduty applications. The chassis mounting rack style may be “regular” (with the ports and

LEDs in the front and the power input and management console connector in the rear) or

“Reverse” (with the ports and LEDs and the power-input and the management console connector all in the rear and a duplicate set of LEDs in the front). Rack widths accommodated include standard 19” RETMA, ETSI, and 23” Telco. Input power may be

AC, or –48VDC for Telco environments, or 24VDC for Industrial applications.

Designed for use in network traffic centers, the Magnum 6K25e Managed

Fiber Switches are easy to install and use. Addresses of attached nodes are automatically learned, maintained and aged out, adapting the switching services to network changes.

LEDs provide status information on each port. The Magnum 6K25e provides high performance plug-and-play hardware operation, 802.1p packet prioritization in hardware, and industry-standard managed networks software functionality, all in convenient 1U rack-mount packages.

2.2.1 Magnum 6K25e and 6K25eR chassis

The Magnum 6K25e is a 19” rack-mountable Ethernet Switch with three eight-port slots (A, B, and C) and one Gb-only slot (D) for configuration flexibility. Slots

A, B and C may be configured with any of a large selection of fiber and copper port types and combinations of types, typically eight ports per module, but sometimes 6 or 4 ports or even one Gb port. Slot D may be configured with a Gb module that accepts

GBICs. The port types configurable using the 4 slots allows the 6K25e to efficiently serve a large variety of applications, especially using fiber media. The Magnum 6K25e port modules are normally factory installed, but may be changed or added in the field.

(See Section 5)

Figure 2.2.1a: “Regular” 6K25e front view, configured for 24 +1 Gb ports

Status LEDs are part of each port module and are viewable when connecting the Ethernet media. A “regular” rack-mount 6K25e is shown in Figure 2.2.1a. On

“Reverse” rack-mount models, there is a duplicate set of LEDs on the other (front) side for normal status viewing from that direction. Of course, with management, the port status data is also available in software.

The 100Mb fiber eightport modules for the Magnum

6K25e’s normally are set (factory default) to operate in full-duplex mode for best fiber distance and performance. Using the

6K25e’s MNS software, the user may select full- or half-duplex mode per-port through set-up of the software (See Magnum 6K25e MNS Software Manual) for the flexibility to adapt to any FDX or HDX type of Fast Ethernet devices).

There are three LED’s per fiber port. The Link (LK) LED indicates “ready for operation” on that port when lit, the F/H LED indicates operation in full-duplex mode when ON (half-duplex when OFF), and the blinking ACT LED indicates receiving

Activity on the port. A fiber cable must be connected into a SFF port and the Link (LK) indicator for that port must be ON (indicating there is a powered-up device at the other end of the cable) in order for a LK LED to provide valid indications of operating conditions on that port.

10

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) eliminate the need of cross-over cable.

On the model 6K8-RJ45 module, there are four LEDs for each port, two in the connector and two separate. The LK (Link) LED indicates “ready for operation” on that port when lit. The blinking ACT (Activity) LED indicates receiving Activity on that port when lit. The 10/100 LED indicates operation at 100Mb speed when ON and at 10 Mb speed when OFF (when autonegotiation is not disabled).

The FDX/HDX LED is ON to indicate full-duplex operation and OFF to indicate

2.2.9 Packet Prioritization, 802.1p QOS

Quality of Service means providing consistent predictable data delivery to users from datagram paths that go all across a network. As a LAN device, the Magnum

6K25e can do its part to prevent any QOS degradation while it is handling Ethernet traffic through its ports and buffers.

The Magnum 6K25e switching hardware supports the IEEE 802.1p standard and fulfills its role in support of QOS, giving packet processing priority to priority tagged packets according to the 802.1p standard. In addition to hardware support for QOS, the

MNS software (R2) supports two priority queues that can be shared across the eight levels of defined packet priorities for application-specific priority control by the user through software configuration settings.

2.2.10 Frame Buffering and Flow Control

Magnum 6K25e’s are store-and-forward switches. Each frame (or packet) is loaded into the Switch’s memory and inspected before forwarding can occur. This technique ensures that all forwarded frames are of a valid length and have the correct

CRC, i.e., are good packets. This eliminates the propagation of bad packets, enabling all of the available bandwidth to be used for valid information.

While other switching technologies (such as "cut-through" or

"express") impose minimal frame latency, they will also permit bad frames to propagate out to the Ethernet segments connected. The "cut-through" technique permits collision fragment frames (which are a result of late collisions) to be forwarded which add to the network traffic. Since there is no way to filter frames with a bad CRC (the entire frame must be present in order for CRC to be calculated), the result of indiscriminate cutthrough forwarding is greater traffic congestion, especially at peak activity. Since collisions and bad packets are more likely when traffic is heavy, the result of store-andforward operation is that more bandwidth is available for good packets when the traffic load is greatest.

When the Magnum 6K25e Switch detects that its free buffer queue space is low, the Switch sends industry standard (full-duplex only) PAUSE packets out to the devices sending packets to cause “flow control”. This tells the sending devices to temporarily stop sending traffic, which allows a traffic catch-up to occur without dropping packets. Then, normal packet buffering and processing resumes. This flowcontrol sequence occurs in a small fraction of a second and is transparent to an observer.

Another feature implemented in Magnum 6K25e Switches is a collision-based flowcontrol mechanism (when operating at half-duplex only). When the Switch detects that

15

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) its free buffer queue space is low, the Switch prevents more frames from entering by forcing a collision signal on all receiving half-duplex ports in order to stop incoming traffic.

2.2.11 Managed Network Software (MNS-6K ) for Magnum 6K25e-Series

Magnum 6K25e’s come with Rel3.7 licensed MNS-6K software, which allows the user to configure the Magnum 6K25e as a Managed Switch and implements security features and other software enabled features.

(NOTE: Magnum 625e managed switch will work with Rel 3.7 firmware or higher version only, using any other MNS-6K version will not support the 6k25e hardware)

2.4 Applications

Magnum 6K25e Fiber Switches offer high performance and modularity. They provide the flexibility of 100Mbps fiber and copper ports as well as Gigabit ports, with industry-standard LAN management software. Magnum 6K25e Switches are easily used in a variety of applications including MANs (metropolitan area networks) client/server computing, secure VLAN- performance upgrades to departmental networks, and LAN traffic centers require Gb backbone services. The performance characteristic of the

6K25e Switches enables them to inter-connect a series of subnets (one subnet per 6K25e

Switch port) in a LAN traffic center. The subnet connections may be via fiber or twisted pair cabling, 100Mbps or 10 Mbps speed, and full-or half-duplex mode.

The mixed-media capability is ideal for upgrading existing Ethernet LAN networks where existing cabling must be accommodated. The fiber-built-in media capability is ideal for integrating future-proof fiber cabling into the LAN structure.

Example 1.

In a Telecommunications storage data application, a secure managed switch is required to provide an Ethernet backbone for a diversified network with multiple subnets. The backbone consists of high speed LAN segments supported by 1000Mbps full-duplex future-proof fiber media to provide secure long distance LAN connections.

The entire network is sharing a higher bandwidth Gigabit-enabled data-mining server for the vital database located in a separate secured building. The copper ports are required for multiple subnets inside the building. The entire spread network is managed to provide easy, detectable, uninterrupted support through a viewable SNMP monitor.

The robust Tag based vlan feature will able to segregates different ports belong to one group and provide an effective solution for bandwidth. The SNMP option and secure web based will allow the remote capability and monitoring the network securely. The versatile mechanical design with rack mounting capability and AC/DC option will be an additional feature to take care of temperature and power option issue.

Equipped with IGMP-L2 mode enhanced features allow the Magnum 6K25e to meet the fastest growing application of video monitoring or video surveillance demand of industry and provide an economical and effective solution to meet that expectation.

Before installing the equipment, it is necessary to take the following precautions:

1.)

If the equipment is mounted in an enclosed or multiple rack assembly, the environmental temperature around the equipment must be less than or equal to 50

0

C.

2.)

If the equipment is mounted in an enclosed or multiple rack assembly, adequate airflow must be maintained for proper and safe operation.

3.)

If the equipment is mounted in an enclosed or multiple rack system, placement of the equipment must not overload or load unevenly the rack system.

4.)

If the equipment is mounted in an enclosed or multiple rack assembly, verify the equipment’s power requirements to prevent overloading of the building/s electrical circuits.

5.)

If the equipment is mounted in an enclosed or multiple rack assembly verify that the equipment has a reliable and uncompromised earthing path.

6.)

24vdc, -48vdc, and 125vdc must be installed in restricted access locations.

7.)

CB-Circuit breakers of 10Amps should be shown on top of the

Rack.

This section describes installation of the

Magnum 6K25e Switches, as well as connection of the various Ethernet media types.

3.1 Locating Magnum 6K25e Switches

The location of a Magnum 6K25e Switch is dependent on the physical layout of the network.

Typically the Switch is placed in a central wiring location where groups of network devices need to be connected in order to communicate with each other. These Switches are typically rack mounted in a wiring closet see Section 3.3.2 below), but because they have rubber feet they can also be installed on a shelf or table top unit. The compact size allows it to be easily placed in an office or lab area, and it can also be either shelf of wall-mounted (see Section 3.3.1 below).

Figure 3.1: Location of the Magnum

6K25e’s cooling fans

21

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

Locate an AC receptacle that is within six feet (2 meters) of the intended

Magnum 6K25e site. The rugged metal case of the Magnum 6K25e will normally protect it from accidental damage in a lab or workplace setting. Maintain an open view of the front to visually monitor the status LEDs. Keep an open area around the unit so that cooling can occur from the small fan on the left side, while the unit is in operation.

See figure below.

3.2 Connecting Ethernet Media

The Magnum 6K25e Switches are specifically designed to support all standard Ethernet media types within a single Switch unit. This is accomplished by using a family of different port Modules which can be individually selected and configured per-port. See Section 2.4 for a description of the PMs.

The various media types supported along with the corresponding IEEE

802.3 and 802.3u standards and connector types are as follows:

Connecting Fiber Optic ST-type, “twist-lock”

The following procedure applies to installations using a PM with ST-type fiber connectors. This procedure applies to ports using a 6K25e module, MST-type port.

1.

2.

Before connecting the fiber optic cable, remove the protective dust caps from the tips of the connectors on the PM. Save these dust caps for future use.

Wipe clean the ends of the dual connectors with a soft cloth or lint-free lens tissue dampened in alcohol. Make certain the connectors are clean before connecting.

Note:

One strand of the duplex fiber optic cable is coded using color bands at regular intervals; you must use the color-coded strand on the

associated ports at each end of the fiber optic segment.

22

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

3.

4.

5.

Connect the Transmit (TX) port (light colored post) on the Magnum PM to the

Receive (RX) port of the remote device. Begin with the color-coded strand of the cable for this first TX-to-RX connection.

Connect the Receive (RX) port (dark colored post on the PM) to the Transmit

(TX) port of the remote device. Use the non-color coded fiber strand for this.

The LINK LED on the front of the PM will illuminate when a proper connection has been established at both ends (and when power is ON in the unit). If LINK is not lit after cable connection, the normal cause is improper cable polarity. Swap the fiber cables at the PM connector to remedy this situation.

3.2.2 Connecting Fiber Optic SC-type, "Snap-In"

The following procedure applies to installations using a PM with SC-type fiber connectors, i.e., using 6K-MSC, 6K-SSC single-mode.

When connecting fiber media to SC connectors, simply snap on the two square male connectors into the SC female jacks of the 6KPM until it clicks and secures.

When using single-mode fiber cable, be sure to use single-mode fiber port connectors. Single-mode fiber cable has a smaller diameter than multi-mode fiber cable

(9/125 microns for single-mode, 50/125 or 62.5/125 microns for multi-mode where xx/xx are the diameters of the core and the core plus the cladding respectively). Single-mode fiber allows full bandwidth at longer distances, and may be used to connect 10 Mb nodes up to 10 Km apart, or 18Km with the 6K-SSC.

The same procedures as for multi-mode fiber applies to single-mode fiber connectors. Follow the steps listed in Section 3.2.2 above.

3.2.4 Connecting Twisted Pair (RJ-45,CAT3, CAT5, Unshielded or Shielded)

The RJ-45 ports of the Magnum 6K25e can be connected to the following two media types: 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T. CAT 5 cables should be used when making

100BASE-TX connections. When the ports are used as 10BASE-T ports, CAT 3 may be used. In either case, the maximum distance for unshielded twisted pair cabling is 100 meters (328 ft).

Media IEEE Standard Connector

Twisted Pair (CAT 3, 4, 5) 10BASE-T RJ-45

Twisted Pair (CAT 5) 100BASE-TX RJ-45

NOTE : It is recommended that high quality CAT. 5 cables (which work for both 10 Mb

and 100Mb) be used whenever possible in order to provide flexibility in a mixed-speed network, since dual-speed ports are auto-sensing for either 10 and

100Mb/s.

23

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

The following procedure describes how to connect a 10BASE-T or 100BASE-

TX twisted pair segment to the RJ-45 port. The procedure is the same for both unshielded and shielded twisted pair cables.

1. Using standard twisted pair media, insert either end of the cable with an RJ-45 plug into the RJ-45 connector of the port. Note that, even though the connector is shielded, either unshielded or shielded cables and wiring may be used.

2. Connect the other end of the cable to the corresponding device

3. Use the LINK LED to ensure proper connectivity by noting that the LED will be illuminated when the unit is powered and proper connection is established

NOTE: for Power Substations: In support of the IEEE 1613 Class 2 standard, GCI

advises that, for substation applications, the RJ-45 ports are intended for connectivity to other communication equipment such as routers or telecommunication multiplexers installed in close proximity (i.e., less than 2 meters or 6.5ft) to the 6K25e. It is not recommended to use these ports in substation applications to interface to field devices across distances which could produce kigh (greater than 2500V ) levels of ground potential rise (GPR) during line-to-ground fault conditions. The 6K25e passes the

1613specifications for zero packet loss with fiber ports & with RJ45 ports used as indicated here.

3.2.5 Connecting Twisted Pair (CAT5E or better, Unshielded or Shielded)

The RJ-45 Gigabit ports of the Magnum 6K25e can be connected to the media types, 1000BASE-T or CAT 5E or better 100-ohm UTP or shielded twisted pair (STP) balanced cable. The CAT 5E or better 100-ohm UTP or shielded twisted pair (STP) balanced cable is recommended to use when making 1000BASE-TX connections. In either case, the maximum distance for unshielded twisted pair cabling is 100 meters (328 ft). See Section 4.3 for manual Up-Link switch on port 1 of copper port modules.

The following procedure describes how to connect a 1000BASE-T twisted pair segment to the RJ-45 port. The procedure is the same for both unshielded and shielded twisted pair cables.

1. 1000Base-T connections require that all four pairs or wires be connected. Insert either end of the cable with an RJ-45 plug into the RJ-45 connector of the port.

Note that, even though the connector is shielded, either unshielded or shielded cables and wiring may be used.

2. Connect the other end of the cable to the corresponding device

Gigabit SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) Optical Transceivers

The small form-factor pluggable (SFP) is a compact optical transceiver used in optical communications for both telecommunication and data communications applications. Due to its compact, hot pluggable characteristics, SFPs are becoming a very popular choice for various applications. The small-chassis Magnum 6KQ is designed for industrystandard Gb-SFPs and Gb-SFPCU (copper) for user selection of the SFP gigabit media type as desired.

All SFPs used in Magnum 6KQs are compliant with the industry standard Multi-Source

Agreement (MSA) ensuring compatibility with a wide range of networking kit.

Note: It is highly recommended to remove the fiber cable first before removing the SFP transceiver for any reason. Not removing the fiber cable first can damage the fiber cable, cable connector or optical interfaces. It is advised not to remove and insert a SFP transceiver frequently as this may shorten its useful life.

Note: Always use an ESD wrist strap while handling the SFP transceivers since the SFP modules are static sensitive devices.

Note: The copper 1000BASE-T SFP transceiver port supports 1000Mb only. It is recommended to use a straight-through RJ-45(4-twisted pair) connection while connecting to any Server/workstation. While connecting with any Switch/repeater or other device, it is recommended to use Crossover RJ-45 (4-twisted pair) category 5 or higher cabling. The maximum length supported on copper 1000BASE-T is 100mts (328 ft.).

3.3.1 Rack-mounting (for 19” RETMA racks), regular Magnum 6K25es

Installation of a Magnum 6K25e Fiber Switch in a 19” rack is a simple procedure. The units are 1U (1.70”) high. When properly installed, the front-mounted

LED status indicators should be in plain view and easy to read. Rack-mount installation requires special 19” rack-mounted brackets and screws (included with each Magnum

6K25e unit). These brackets attach to the front sides of the Switch (regular package, i.e., not the Reverse version), which is then typically fastened into a standard 19” RETMA rack as shown here.

The 23” brackets and the ETSI (European metric, approx. 21”) brackets are also available (optional) for rack-mounting of Magnum 6K25e Switches. These brackets are popular in the Telco industry where they are a standard for Central Office rackmounting purposes. The 23” and the ETSI brackets are mainly used for larger equipment

Powering the Magnum Managed Fiber Switch

The Magnum 6K25e Switches incorporate an internal universal power supply and have a recessed male IEC connector for the AC power cord at the left-rear. A manual power ON-OFF switch is adjacent. A six-foot 115 VAC 60 Hz standard power cord is supplied with each unit shipped within the United States and Canada.

The auto-ranging power supply supports installation environments where the

AC voltage is from 90 to 260 volts with a power input frequency between 47 and 63 Hz.

The 25-port units will consume over 20 watts of power typically. When connecting the

28

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

Ethernet cabling, there is no need to power down the unit. Individual segments can be connected or disconnected without concern for AC power-related problems or damage to the unit.

Power supply options are available to suit the 6K25e Switches to special highavailability communications and/or heavy industrial-grade applications, including:

* -48VDC, 24VDC and 125VDC with single DC input,

* -48VDC, 24VDC and 125VDC with dual-source DC input,

See the Appendices of this manual for more details. Use an RFQ for other variations.

3.4.1 Alarm Contacts for monitoring internal power, and Software Traps

The Alarm Contacts feature, optional on Magnum 6K25e’s, provides two

Form C Normally Closed (NC) contacts to which the user can attach two sets of status monitoring wires at the green terminal block. When this option is present, the terminal block for Alarm Contacts is part of the Power Input panel in the Magnum 6K25e case.

The AC or DC power input connection is in the same panel. A manual On-Off Switch for power to the unit is not available on 6K25e units with the Alarm Contacts option, as these two features occupy the same space in the case.

The first NC Alarm Contact (top position) is a “Software Alarm”, operated by user settings in the MNS-6K software. The user can disable the Software Alarm feature with a software configuration command if desired. When the Software Alarm is enabled, the Form C Normally Closed (NC) contact is held close during normal software operation. A user-defined software malfunction, such as an SNMP Trap or a Software

Security violation or an S-Ring Fault, causes the contact to open and thus trigger an alarm in the user’s monitoring system

The second (bottom position) NC Alarm Contact is held close when there is power on the main board inside of the 6K25e. This provides a “Hardware Alarm” because the NC contacts will open when internal power is lost, either from an external power down condition or by the failure of the power supply inside of the Magnum 6K25e

Switch. Useful info. about Alarm contacts:

1. There is four terminal block (1,2,3,4)provided next to AC/DC power supply

2. The top two pins (1,2) are software operated

3. The bottom two pins (3,4) are hardware operated

4. By default it is NC (normally closed)

5. The software operation need to be enable and set to get the Alarm traps. For detail information about the Software Alarm and software control of SNMP alarm traps, please reference the Magnum MNS-6K Software User Manual. (Chapter 19th).

3.5 6K25e Port Module (6KPM) Installation

The Magnum 6K25e Switches are normally received from the factory with all required 6KPM modules installed. There may be situations where 6KPM cards need to be added or replaced. In cases where additional 6KPM cards are needed, the faceplate for an available front-mounted slot must be removed. The following procedure describes this operation.

3.5.1 Preparation for Installing and Removing 6KPMs

STOP!!!

Be sure the power cord and connections for all powers single or dual, is unplugged from the chassis before attempting to remove and/or replace any PM cards.

Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit and will void the warranty.

Caution- Avoid Static Discharge: The port modules (like most electronic equipment) are sensitive to static discharge. Use proper ESD measures when handling port modules.

Step 1.

Make sure the 6KPM Card package has all necessary accessories to install it properly. Each 6KPM Card package except the Gigabit, for field installation contains (Daughterboard (Bigger) and Granddaughter board (smaller), three 5/8 stand offs for Granddaughter board, six #4-40 Pan-Head screws along with

Front panel face plate package. The Front panel faceplate package includes 3 retainer brackets and six #2-56 flat head screws.

NOTE: Every 6KPM Card package comes with their matching Daughter and

Granddaughter board. The copper 6KPM card should not work properly if mixed with other Fiber combo 6KPM card packages. Always install the PM module separately one by one to avoid the mixing

.

Step 2. Remove Chassis Cover

The Magnum 6K25e chassis are combined with top and bottom parts and

30

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) assembled together with the help of 22 Philips-head screws. There are 7 screws located on the front-bottom and rear-top of the unit and four screws each on the sides. Remove these screws. Once these are removed, the top cover is easily lifted off the chassis base.

When the chassis top cover has been removed, the interior of the unit is exposed.

Figure 3.5.1a: Removing Chassis Cover

Caution: Be careful not to disturb the power supply.

Looking down into the Magnum 6K25e unit, notice that there are individual

PM installation spaces and female latch(white) connectors provided on the main board along with four stand-off’s for each 6KPM card position. (See Figure 3.5.1b).

Figure 3.5.1b: Magnum 6K25e, Top view without chassis cover

Step 3. Remove front panel face plate retaining screws

There are four PM slots (A, B, C and D) located on the front of the chassis cover.

Looking into the vertical placed Chassis cover of the unit, there are three brackets with retaining screws (#256 flat head ) which hold each PM Face plate card slot securely.

These six screws shown in the picture below are used to secure a PM face plate in position, but unscrew only four of the screws as shown in Fig. below. These screws are also used to secure the individual 6KPM cards screen plate which can be subjected to significant forces from the attached cables. (See Figure 3.5.1c)

3.5.2 Installing 6KPM Cards in the Magnum 6K25e

Up to four front-mounted 6KPM cards may be installed in one Magnum 6K25e

Managed Fiber Switch unit. Follow these steps to install a 6KPM.

Step 1.

Remove top chassis cover. See procedure in Section 3.5.1 above.

Step 2.

Placed Granddaughter board (as shown in fig. 3.5.2a and 3.5.2b) on the chassis built in stand off (female) provided at the front of the 6K25e Main Board and screw down tightly with the three 5/16 stand-off (male) on the top of the

Granddaughter board The 5/16 stand off has been used to place the daughter board on the top of the granddaughter board and latch it securely.

Fig 3.5.2a Granddaughter Board shown separately

33

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

Step 5.

Once the latching connectors are aligned properly and the mounting holes are aligned with stand offs then press slowly and firmly with two fingers (as shown below in

Fig. 3.5.2f) on the top of the latching connectors until the connectors latched up securely.

Figure 3.5.2f: Securely latching up 6KPM Cards into a Magnum 6K25e

NOTE: All 6KPM slots need not be filled in order for the Magnum 6K25e unit to be

operational. When leaving 6KPM slots empty, always use a face plate (Magnum 6K8-

BLNK) to cover the slot opening in the front panel. This will maintain proper cooling air flow, safety, and operation as required by FCC, CE, and other regulations.

Step 6.

Now screw down the daughter board with 6

#440 screws, so that it holds the daughter board securely. The figure below shows the top view of 6KPM card after successfully installing the

6KPM cards inside the

Magnum 6K25e.

Fig. 3.5.2g

Top View : 6KPM Module installed inside a

6K25e

Step 7.

Once the installation of granddaughter and daughter modules is done, the front panel screen plates need to be placed on the front of the chassis cover to complete the installation process for that port module. The front panel screen plate comes along with the package of port module separately along with

34

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) brackets and 6 #256 flat head screws. The brackets and screws have been installed inside of the top cover as shown in Fig. 3.5.2h.

Fig. 3.5.2h Inside view of chassis cover (from the rear), showing the front panel screen plates installed inside the chassis cover using brackets and screws

Step 8.

Once all 6KPM cards have been installed (including faceplates for empty slots), the chassis cover should be replaced. Make sure the chassis cover is aligned properly before securing the enclosure.

NOTE(Gigabit Module only

):

The Gigabit port module installation on slot A, B and C

COTX require four bracket extender for each(slot A, B, or C COTX).

Attach the bracket from the PCA to the center standoff on the main mother board. The bracket provide the stability to the Gigabit module. The slot D can be configured with dual Gigabit

SFP ordualRj-45 or dual combo of SFP & RJ-45 modules only.

NOTE (

Reverse mount Model

): The Reverse model require a

LED Decal, (for checking the speed, F/H, and activity status)

3.5.3 Removing 6KPM Cards

To properly remove a 6KPM card from the 6K25e Managed Fiber Switch, follow the 3 steps below.

Step 1. Remove chassis cover

See procedures in Section 3.5.1 above.

Caution: Be sure the power cord is unplugged.

Step 2. Remove retaining screws placed on top for the 6KPM and Face Plate

On the top of the daughter module there are six retaining screws for each 6KPM card. These screws are used to secure a 6KPM card in position (see Figure 3.5.3a). Remove the three standoffs holding the Granddaughter board with the chassis. The screen faceplate screws out from the inside front of the chassis cover by loosening

35

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) the 4 screws and bracket while holding it down firmly.

Figure 3.5.3a: Top View - 6 retaining s crews shown by arrows

Step 3. Remove 6KPM Card

Carefully and gently pull out the daughter board from the latching connectors, using both hands, gripping the board near the latch-up connectors as shown in Fig. 3.5.3b . If the now empty slot is to remain unused, be sure to install a 6KPM-BLNK face plate cover

.

4.0 OPERATION

This chapter describes the functions and operation of the Magnum 6K25e

Switch.

A Magnum 6K25e provides switched connectivity at Ethernet wire-speed among all of its ports. The Magnum 6K25e supports10/100Mbs for copper media and 10 or 100Mb separate traffic domains for fiber ports to maximize bandwidth utilization and network performance. All ports can communicate to all other ports in a Magnum 6K25e, but local traffic on a port will not consume any of the bandwidth on any other port.

37

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

Magnum 6K25e units are plug-and-play devices. There is no software configuring necessary to be done for basic operation at installation or for maintenance.

The only hardware configuration settings are user options for an UP-LINK Switch

(resides inside the unit) on the 6K8-RJ45. Optional Half / Full duplex mode and 10 or

100Mbps selection for the switched ports must be configured through MNS software per unit as per the requirement. The internal functions of both are described below.

Filtering and Forwarding

Each time a packet arrives on one of the switched ports, the decision is taken to either filter or to forward the packet. Packets whose source and destination addresses are on the same port segment will be filtered, constraining them to that one port and relieving the rest of the network from having to process them. A packet whose destination address is on another port segment will be forwarded to the appropriate port, and will not be sent to the other ports where it is not needed. Traffic needed for maintaining the operation of the network (such as occasional multi-cast packets) are forwarded to all ports.

The Magnum 6K25e Switches operate in the store-and-forward switching mode, which eliminates bad packets and enables peak performance to be achieved when there is heavy traffic on the network.

Address Learning

All Magnum 6K25e units have address table capacities of 4K node addresses suitable for use in larger networks. They are self-learning, so as nodes are added, removed or moved from one segment to another, the 6K25e Switch automatically keeps up with node locations.

An address-aging algorithm causes least-used addresses to fall out in favor of frequently-used addresses. To reset the address buffer, cycle power down-and-up.

4.3

For all Magnum 6K25e models :

PWR :

Power LED, ON when external power is applied to the unit.

LK :

Steady ON, Link status for 10 Mbps and 100Mbps operation.

ACT :

F/H :

Full / Half duplex LED, ON when the port is running full duplex, OFF for half duplex.

100/10 :

Speed LED, ON when the speed is 100Mbps , OFF when the speed is 10 Mbps

Up-link MDI-MDIX on RJ-45 port modules, for port 1 only

The upper part of the copper port module has a manual Up-link switch, located

38

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) on the inside of the unit on the port module board next to the RJ45 port # 1 which it controls. It enables the port’s cable to be cascaded (X) to a 10/100Mb repeater or switching hub in the network. The manual Up-link switch position is configured as (=) position as default factory setting, where used for all-copper module or combo modules.

4.4 Auto-Cross(MDIX) and Auto-negotiation, for RJ-45 ports

The RJ-45 ports independently support auto-cross (MDI or MDIX) in auto-negotiation mode and will work properly with all the other connected devices with RJ-45 port whether it supports Auto-negotiation or not (e.g 10Mb Hub, media converter) or fixed mode at 10Mb or 100Mb Half/Full Duplex(managed switch). No cross-over cable is required while using the 6K8’s copper port to other devices.

Operation is according to the IEEE 802.3u standard.

The Managed 6K25e-Series Fast Ethernet copper ports, can be set for either fixed 100Mb speed or for 10/100 F/H N-way auto-negotiation per the IEEE802.3u standard. The selection is made via MNS software. The factory default setting is for auto-negotiation.

At 10Mb or 100Mb-fixed speed, the user may select half- or full-duplex mode by MNS

Software for each RJ-45 port separately. For detail information

See Section (10.1 at page no.52) of this manual to access the “6K-MNS(Rel 3.7) Software user guide”

One frequently-used application for the Managed Magnum 6K25e Switch copper ports is to connect one of them using a fiber media converter to another Switch in the network backbone, or to some other remote 100Mb device. In this case, it is desirable to operate the fiber link at 100Mb speed, and at either half- or full duplex mode depending on the capabilities of the remote device. Standard commercially available

Fast Ethernet media converters mostly do not support auto-negotiation properly, and require that the switched port to which they are connected be at 100Mb fixed speed.

Attachment to 10/100 auto-negotiation ports typically will not work properly. The

6K25e Switch’s RJ-45 ports handle this situation by configuring the ports as per desire through MNS software port settings and can check the port status of each port after the change.

When Magnum 6K25e RJ-45 copper ports are set for auto-negotiation and are connected to another auto-negotiating device, there are 4 different speed and F/H modes possible depending on what the other device supports. These are: (1) 100Mb full-duplex,

(2) 100Mb half-duplex, (3) 10 Mb full-duplex and (4) 10 Mb half-duplex.

The auto-negotiation logic will attempt to operate in descending order and will normally

39

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) arrive at the highest order mode that both devices can support at that time. (Since autonegotiation is potentially an externally controlled process, the original “highest order mode” result can change at any time depending on network changes that may occur). If the device at the other end is not an auto-negotiating device, the 6K25e’s RJ-45 ports will try to detect its idle signal to determine 10 or 100 speed, and will default to halfduplex at that speed per the IEEE standard.

General information -

Auto-negotiation per-port for 802.3u-compliant switches occurs when:

-- the devices at both ends of the cable are capable of operation at either 10

Mb or 100Mb speed and/or in full- or half-duplex mode, and can send/receive auto-negotiation pulses, and . . .

-- the second of the two connected devices is powered up*, i.e., when

LINK is established for a port, or

-- the LINK is re-established on a port after being lost temporarily.

NOTE

Some NIC cards only auto-negotiate when the computer system that they are in is powered up. These are exceptions to the “negotiate at

LINK – enabled” rule above, but may be occasionally encountered.

When operating in 100Mb half-duplex mode, cable distances and hop-counts may be limited within that collision domain. The Path Delay Value (PDV) bit-times must account for all devices and cable lengths within that domain. For Magnum 6K25e Fast

Ethernet switched ports operating at 100Mb half-duplex, the bit time delay is 50BT.

4.5 Flow-control, IEEE 802.3x standard

Magnum 6K25e Switches incorporate a flow-control mechanism for Full-

Duplex mode. The purpose of flow-control is to reduce the risk of data loss if a long burst of activity causes the switch to save frames until its buffer memory is full. This is most likely to occur when data is moving from a 100Mb port to a 10 Mb port and the

10Mb port is unable to keep up. It can also occur when multiple 100Mb ports are attempting to transmit to one 100Mb port, and in other protracted heavy traffic situations.

40

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07)

Magnum 6K25e Switches implement the 802.3x flow control (non-blocking) on Full-Duplex ports, which provides for a “PAUSE” packet to be transmitted to the sender when the packet buffer is nearly filled and there is danger of lost packets. The transmitting device is commanded to stop transmitting into the 6K25e Switch port for sufficient time to let the Switch reduce the buffer space used. When the available freebuffer queue increases, the Switch will send a “RESUME" packet to tell the transmitter to start sending the packets. Of course, the transmitting device must also support the

802.3x flow control standard in order to communicate properly during normal operation.

Note:

When in Half-Duplex mode, the 6K25e Switch implements a back-pressure algorithm on 10/100 Mb ports for flow control. That is, the switch prevents frames from entering the device by forcing a collision indication on the half-duplex ports that are receiving. This temporary “collision” delay allows the available buffer space to improve as the switch catches up with the traffic flow.

4.6 Power Budget Calculations for Magnum 6K25e PM’s with Fiber Media

Receiver Sensitivity and Transmitter Power are the parameters necessary to compute the power budget. To calculate the power budget of different fiber media installations using Magnum products, the following equations should be used:

OPB (Optical Power Budget) = P

T

(min) - P

R

(min)

where P

T

= Transmitter Output Power, and P

R

= Receiver Sensitivity

Worst case OPB = OPB - 1dB(for LED aging) - 1dB(for insertion loss)

Worst case distance = {Worst case OPB, in dB} / [Cable Loss, in dB/Km] where the “Cable Loss” for 62.5/125 and 50/125

µ m

(M.m) is 2.8 dB/km, and the “Cable Loss” for 100/140 (Multi-mode) is 3.3 dB/km, and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.5 dB/km and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.4 dB/km (LXSC25) and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.25 dB/km

(LXSC40) and the “Cable Loss” for 9/125 (Single-mode) is 0.2 dB/km (LXSC70)

* Note: The use of either multi-mode or single-mode fiber to operate at 100Mbps speed over long distances (i.e., in excess of approx. 400 meters) can be achieved

only

if the following factors are both applied:

The 100Mb fiber segment must operate in full-duplex (FDX) mode, i.e. the full-duplex (factory default) setting for 100Mbps fiber ports must be used,

and

The worst-case OPB of the fiber link must be greater than the fiber cable’s passive Attenuation.

(Attenuation = Cable loss + LED aging loss + Insertion loss + safety factor)

6KPM Module Description

An important feature of the Magnum 6K25e is the use of Port

Modules for flexible mixed-media connectivity to RJ-45 and fiber media. Since the Magnum 6K25e Switches have dual-speed capability for copper ports, the 6 or 8-port interfaces are designed to support all standard Ethernet media types at

10 or 100Mps speed. Each 6K25e PM provides six or eight ports for connecting Ethernet segments with its individual connector type and media.

For a list of 6K25e Port Module types, refer to Section 1.2

Each 6K25e PM is individually described in the following sections.

NOTE

: The port #1 on the RJ-45 ports on all the modules, either all

RJ-45 ports or used for COMBO module is set as (=) other user ports.

Each port has an Activity (ACT) LED indicating packets being received, a

Link (LK) LED that indicates proper connectivity with the remote device when lit, a

FDX/HDX LED to indicate full-duplex mode when lit (or half-duplex when off), and a

“10/100” LED indicating 100Mb when lit (or 10 Mbps when off).

Important Note:

The 10/100 RJ-45 ports are supported with Auto-negotiation and

Auto-crossover (MDIX), which allow the RJ-45 ports to automatically Link with any RJ-

45 device and eliminate the use of cross-over cable.

NOTE: for Power Substations: In support of the IEEE 1613 Class 2 standard, GCI

advises that, for substation applications, the RJ-45 ports are intended for connectivity to other communication equipment such as routers or telecommunication multiplexers installed in close proximity (i.e., less than 2 meters or 6.5ft) to the 6K25e. It is not recommended to use these ports in substation applications to interface to field devices across distances which could produce kigh (greater than 2500V ) levels of ground potential rise (GPR) during line-to-ground fault conditions. The 6K25e passes the

1613specifications for zero packet loss with fiber ports & with RJ45 ports used as indicated here.

The LEDs on 6KP8-RJ45- PoE module are slightly different compared to regular (non-PoE) RJ-45 modules as shown in Fig 2. When the PoE port is in use, the

PoE LED is ON when connected properly to a 803.af compliant PD device on that port.

When non-PoE devices are connected, the PoE LED is OFF. Operation of Ethernet data traffic is not affected by PoE.

LINK and ACTIVITY LEDS are combined on the PoE modules into one LED that is marked as LINK/ACT, as shown in the diagram.

PoE LEDs Summary

For PoE devices, each RJ-45 PoE port supports only 802.3af complaint devices. The PoE LED is ON when the attached PD is drawing power from the port.

For non-PoE devices connected, the PoE port will act as a normal RJ-45 port and the PoE LED is OFF. No power is being sent out from the port.

The PoE ports in Magnum 6K’s with 48VDC power input act as a passthrough, so the 48VDC power source must be strong enough to provide power to the 6K switch and to all the 8 RJ-45 ports with PD devices connected (up to

15 watts per PoE port).

In the case where the 48VDC power in not internally connected and no power is coming to the PoE ports for some reason, all the PoE port LEDs are ON simultaneously to indicate a trouble condition. The ports will still operate properly for data traffic.

It protects the Switch from incorrect DC input connections. An incorrect polarity connection, for example, will neither affect the Switch, its internal power supply, nor will it blow the fuse in the internal power supply.

The manual power “On-Off” Switch (optional) is used for powering the unit on and off when it is placed into or taken out of service.

B3.0 APPLICATIONS FOR DC POWERED SWITCHES

Magnum 6K25e Fiber Switches are easily installed in a variety of applications where -48VDC, 24VDC and 125VDC power is used as the primary power source. The-

48VDC, 24VDC and 125VDC power configuration provides an Ethernet networking solution utilizing a special power supply in a managed Fiber Switch.

The –48VDC solution is particularly useful in the telecommunication industry, where it is common for facilities to operate on -48VDC power. Such companies include regular and wireless telephone service providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and

58

Magnum 6K25e Gigabit Fiber Switch Installation and User Guide (10/07) other communication companies. In addition, many high availability equipment services, such as broadcasters, publishers, newspaper operations, brokerage firms and other facilities often use a battery backup system to maintain operations in the event of a power failure. It is also frequently used for computer system backup, management and operations monitoring equipment.

The 24VDC and 125VDC solution are particularly useful in the Industrial environment, where it is common facilities to operate on 24VDC or 125VDC power. The

125VDC solution is mainly used in power utilities, such as electrical substations, electrical generating plants, etc. The 24VDC applications are mainly in the Industrial environment, such as factory floor, HVAC equipment, military equipment, etc.

B4.0 INSTALLATION

This section describes the installation of the -48 VDC, 24VDC and 125VDC power source leads to the -48 VDC, 24VDC and 125VDC power terminal block on the

and chassis ground (GND).

The actual connection procedure is very straightforward. Simply connect the leads to the Magnum unit, beginning with ground. Ensure that each lead is securely tightened.

Note: The GND should be hooked up first. The 6K25e unit has a floating ground, so the user may elect to Ground either + or = terminal to suit the customer’s use.

Before connecting hot lines to the Terminal Block of –48VDC, 24VDC or

125VDC, always use a digital voltmeter to measure the output voltage of the power supply and determine the lead which is more “+ve potential”. The more “+ve” voltage lead from 48V or –48V supply must be connected to the post labeled “+”.

An ON-OFF manual switch is optional for DC power. This can be used to cut off power connections and as a RESET for the Magnum 6K25e Switch.

, including Appendix B

“Internal DC Power Supply Option”

The 6K25e-Switch models with the internal -48VDC, 24VDC and 125VDC

Dual-Source power supply are designed for installations where a battery plant is the power source, and where two separate power sources are utilized in order to increase operational uptime and to simplify maintenance.

The functionality of the Magnum 6K25e Switch -48VDC, 24VDC and

125VDC Dual-Source Option units is identical to the standard AC-powered models.

Refer to the main sections of this

Installation and User Guide

for a detailed description of the Magnum 6K25e Switches.

C3.0 DUAL-SOURCE OPTION, THEORY OF OPERATION

The Dual-Source DC power

C4.0

a)

FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF THE DUAL-SOURCE DESIGN

The Switch unit can receive power from either input, “A” or “B”. The hub will normally draw its power from the DC source with the highest voltage at a given time. b) c) d)

The Switch unit will not allow power to flow from a higher voltage input to a lower voltage input, i.e. the two DC power sources are not mixed together by the hub.

When one correct DC input is present, the Switch will receive power if the other DC input is absent, or even if it is connected with reverse polarity or shorted or grounded.

Reverse polarity connections, if they should accidentally occur on either input, will not damage the Switch or power supply internally (nor will it blow the fuse in the internal power supply) because of the blocking action of the diodes. This is true even if one input connection is reversed while the Switch is operating from the other source.

e)

The Switch will not receive power (and will not work) when both inputs are simultaneously absent or are both incorrectly connected.

C5.0 INSTALLATION

This section describes the proper connection of the -48VDC, 24VDC and

125VDC dual source leads to the -48VDC, 24VDC 7 125VDC power terminal block on the Magnum 6Ks Switch (shown in Figure )

Figure C5.0: -48VDC Dual-Source, wiring connections to the External

Terminal Block on a Magnum 48VDC with Dual-Source option

Note: The GND should be hooked up first. The 6K25e unit has a floating ground, so the user may elect to Ground either + or = terminal to suit the customer’s use.

Before connecting hot lines to the Terminal Block of –48VDC, 24VDC or

125VDC, always use a digital voltmeter to measure the output voltage of the power supply and determine the lead which is more “+ve potential”. The more “+ve” voltage lead from 48V or –48V supply must be connected to the post labeled “+”.

The connection procedure is straightforward. Simply connect the DC leads to the Switch’s power terminals, positive (+) and negative (-) screws. The use of Ground

(GND) is optional; it connects to the Switch chassis. Ensure that each lead is securely tightened.

The 24VDC & 125VDC terminal block on Magnum 6K25e’s is similar to that described in the –48VDC information above.

C5.1 UL Requirements

The following must be adhered to in order to conform to UL requirements:

1. Minimum 18 AWG cable for connection to a Centralized DC power source.

2. Minimum 14 AWG cable for connection to earthing wiring.

3. Use only with Listed 10 A circuit breaker provided in building installation.

4. “Complies with FDA radiation performance standards, 21 CFR subchapter J.”

or equivalent.

5. Fastening torque of the lugs on the terminal block: 9 inch pound max.
