Setting Up the Switch
See the Cisco ME 3800X and ME 3600X Switch Getting Started Guide on Cisco.com for instructions on
how to initially configure your switch. The getting started guide also covers switch management options,
basic rack-mounting procedures, port and module connections, power connection procedures, and
troubleshooting.
For instructions on setting up your switch using the CLI, see Appendix C, “Configuring the Switch with
the CLI-Based Setup Program.”
Switch Models
You can deploy the switch as a backbone switch, aggregating 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T,
and fiber-optic Ethernet traffic from other network devices.
See the switch software configuration guide for examples that show how you might deploy the switch in
your network.

BITS Port
The Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS) port is an RJ-45 interface that provides external
synchronized clocking through a timing signal generator (TSG). The BITS input is an external timing
reference that must be traceable to a stratum 3 clock or better. The BITS port on the switch can be
configured to accept either a T1 or an E1 framed input. Although this clock input is T1 or E1 framed, it
does not carry data and cannot be used for any other purpose than to derive clocking for the system.
Alarm Input Port
The switch supports four alarm inputs. The alarm input is a dry-contact alarm port. Use the CLI to define
each alarm input to respond to a normally open or closed dry-contact closure and to define the alarm
severity as minor, major, or critical. When a condition triggers an alarm, the console displays an alarm
message, and the corresponding Alarm LED responds (see the “Alarm LEDs Description” section on
page 1-9).

Management and Console Port
You can connect the switch to a host such as a Windows workstation or a terminal server through the
10/100/1000 Ethernet management port or the console port. The 10/100/1000 Ethernet management port
connection uses a standard RJ-45 crossover or straight-through Ethernet cable. The console port
connection uses a RJ-45-to-DB-9 female cable.
The Ethernet management port operates in any combination of 10, 100, or 1000 Mb/s, and its traffic is
isolated from the other ports. See Table 1-7 for descriptions of the Ethernet management port LEDs. See
the “10/100/1000 Ethernet Management Port” section on page B-3 for pinout information.
For console port and adapter pinout information, see the “Console Port Adapter Pinouts” section on
page B-8.
10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Ports
The 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports use standard RJ-45 connectors with Ethernet pinouts. The maximum
cable length is 328 feet (100 meters). The 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T traffic requires Category 5,
Category 5e, or Category 6 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. The 10BASE-T traffic can use
Category 3 or Category 4 UTP cable.
The autonegotiation feature is enabled by default. The switch ports configure themselves to operate at
the speed of attached devices. If the attached device does not support autonegotiation, you can explicitly
set the switch port speed and the duplex parameters. To maximize performance, either let the ports
autonegotiate both speed and duplex, or set the port speed and duplex parameters on both ends of the
connection.
For simplified cabling, the automatic medium-dependent interface crossover (auto-MDIX) feature is
enabled by default. The switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and
configures the interface accordingly. You can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for
connections to a switch 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, regardless of the type of device on the other end of
the connection.
SFP+ and SFP Modules
The switch 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ modules are used for connections to other devices. These
transceiver modules are field-replaceable, providing the uplink interfaces when inserted in an SFP+
module slot. You can use any combination of SFP+ or SFP modules. The SFP+ modules have LC
connectors for fiber-optic connections. The SFP+ module slots support SFP+ and 1000BASE-X SFP
modules. The SFP+ module slots do not support 100BASE-X and 1000BASE-T modules.
Use only Cisco SFP+ or SFP modules on the switch. Each Cisco module has an internal serial EEPROM
that is encoded with security information.

SFP Module Patch Cable
The SFP downlink ports supports the SFP module patch cable, a 0.5-meter, copper, passive cable with
SFP module connectors at each end. This cable is only used with 1-Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports to connect
two switches in a cascaded configuration.
See the “Inserting and Removing the SFP+ Module Patch Cable” section on page 2-17 for more
information about using the SFP module patch cable.
You can order the SFP module patch cable (part number CAB-SFP-50CM=).
SD Memory Slot
The switch has an SD (secure digital) memory slot for additional non-volatile storage. You can save
configurations or Cisco IOS images and transfer them to other systems. The memory slot supports
standard SD (1 MB and 2 GB) memory cards or SDHC (4 GB) memory cards.
LEDs
You can use the switch system and port LEDs to monitor switch activity and performance.

Power Supply Module Features
Power Supply Module Features
The Cisco ME 3800X and ME 3600X switches support two power supply modules, either AC or DC
input. You can install two AC or DC input power supply modules, a mix of AC and DC input power
supply modules, or one power supply and one fan module. The power supply and fan modules are
hot-swappable.
Caution
Both slots must be occupied either by two power supply modules or a power supply and a fan module.
Do not run the switch with an empty slot unless you are replacing a faulty power supply or fan module.
Running the switch with an empty slot triggers an alarm.
Each power supply module contains three fans. The switch can operate safely if one fan fails. A fan
failure triggers an alarm. When a fan fails, replace the power supply module immediately.
See Chapter 3, “Installing and Removing AC and DC Input Power Supply and Fan Modules,” for
instructions on installing the AC and DC input power supply and fan module. See Appendix A,
“Technical Specifications,” for voltage and other specifications.
Power Supply Module LEDs
The power supply module LEDs show the status of the power supply modules. Figure 1-5 applies to both
AC and DC input power supply modules.

Management Options
•
Cisco IOS CLI
You can fully configure and monitor the switch from the CLI. You can access the CLI either by
connecting your management station directly to the switch console port or by using Telnet from a
remote management station. See the switch command reference on Cisco.com for more information.
For setup instructions that use the CLI, go to Appendix C, “Configuring the Switch with the
CLI-Based Setup Program.”
•
CiscoView application
The CiscoView device-management application displays the switch image so that you can set
configuration parameters and view switch status and performance information. The CiscoView
application, which you purchase separately, can be a standalone application or part of a Simple
Network Management Protocol (SNMP) platform. See the CiscoView documentation for more
information.

Management Options
•
SNMP network management
You can manage switches from a SNMP-compatible management station that is running platforms
such as HP OpenView or SunNet Manager. The switch supports a comprehensive set of Management
Information Base (MIB) extensions and four Remote Monitoring (RMON) groups. See the switch
software configuration guide on Cisco.com and the documentation that came with your SNMP
application for more information.
Network Configurations
See the switch software configuration guide on Cisco.com for an explanation of network configuration
concepts. The software configuration guide also provides examples of network configurations that use
the switch to create dedicated network segments that are interconnected through Ethernet connections.
