External 10-Gigabit Ethernet Module Ports
The Switch Module contains a switching ASIC that is capable of forwarding Ethernet and FCoE packets
at wire rate speed.
Six SFP+ ports are wired for external uplink access and are located on the front panel of the Switch
Module. These external uplinks support 10GBASE-SR SFP+, 10GBASE-LR SFP+, 10GBASE-CU
SFP+, and GE-SFP.
The port speed for the internal Ethernet ports can be set to 1 Gb or 10 Gb (only the internal Ethernet
ports can be set to auto-negotiate. See “Internal 10-Gigabit Ethernet Module Server Ports”). The duplex
setting must be full duplex.
For information on configuring the port settings, refer to the Cisco Nexus 4001I and 4005I Switch
Module for IBM BladeCenter NX-OS Configuration Guide and the Cisco Nexus 4001I and 4005I Switch
Module for IBM BladeCenter NX-OS Command Reference.
Serial Console Port
The Switch Module can be accessed through a serial console port located on the front panel. This is the
standard Cisco RS-232 console using an RJ45 connector for the Switch Module.
You can use the console port to connect the Switch Module to a host such as a PC, workstation, or a
terminal server. Use the supplied console cable to connect the switch module to a host.
For more information about the console port, refer to the Cisco Nexus 4001I and 4005I Switch Module

This section describes the internal interfaces of the Switch Module and includes the following topics:
•
Internal 10-Gigabit Ethernet Module Server Ports, page 1-3
•
Internal 100BASE-T Ethernet Management Port, page 1-4
Internal 10-Gigabit Ethernet Module Server Ports
The Switch Module contains a switching ASIC capable of forwarding Layer-2 packets at wire rate speed.
14 of the 10 Gb Ethernet ports are wired for internal access to the server blades. These downlink ports
connect to the server blades through the IBM BladeCenter chassis backplane, using the KX/KX4
interface.
The port speed for the internal Ethernet ports can be set to 1 Gb, 10 Gb, or auto-negotiate. However, the
duplex setting must be full duplex.
Note
The auto-negotiate speed mode works with network adapters that support IEEE802.3ap Clause 73, fixed
1G or fixed 10G. For network adapters that use the auto-negotiate speed mode, but do not support
IEEE802.3ap Clause 73, the switch port speed must be set to corresponding fixed speed of either 10 Gb
or 1 Gb.

Internal 100BASE-T Ethernet Management Port
The internal Ethernet management port (MGMT1) is used only for Switch Module management traffic,
not for data traffic. It is connected to the IBM Advanced Management Module (aMM) through the blade
enclosure backplane connector. Traffic to and from this port is isolated from the switch module ports.
This port only supports autonegotiation with 100 Mb/s and full-duplex mode.
The Switch Module supports two 100Base-T Ethernet ports connected to the Management Modules
through the backplane. The two Management Module Ethernet interfaces are combined into a single
Ethernet interface on the switch module management circuits. Which of the two Management Module
interfaces is active is determined by the chassis.

When installing an SFP+ transceiver module, observe the following precautions:
•
Do not remove the dust plugs from the fiber-optic SFP+ transceiver modules or the rubber caps from
the fiber-optic cable until you are ready to connect the cable. The plugs and caps protect the module
ports and cables from contamination and ambient light.
•
Removing and installing an SFP+ module can shorten its useful life. Do not remove and insert any
SFP+ module more often than is absolutely necessary.
•
To prevent ESD damage, follow your normal board and component handling procedures when
connecting cables to the Switch Module and other devices.
To install an SFP+ transceiver module, perform the following steps:
Step 1
Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap to your wrist and to the ESD ground connector or a bare metal
surface on your chassis.
Step 2

Note
Do not remove the optical bore dust plugs until directed to do so later in the procedure.
Step 3
Remove the 10 Gb Ethernet module slot cover and save.
Step 4
Position the SFP+ transceiver in front of the socket opening.
Caution
Verify the correct orientation of your transceiver module before inserting it into the slot. Incorrect
insertion can damage the module.
If your transceiver module has a bale clasp, position the transceiver with the clasp on the bottom, close
the clasp by pushing it up over the transceiver, and then gently insert the transceiver into the port until
it clicks into place.
Step 5
Insert the SFP+ module into the SFP+ port until you feel the connector latch into place.
Step 6
Press the SFP+ module into the slot firmly with your thumb.
If your transceiver module has a bale clasp, move the clasp to the locked (upright) position.

Chapter 2
Installing the Switch Module
Connecting the Switch Module Ports
Connecting Devices to the Ethernet Port
The External Management Port on the Switch Module is a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port that uses 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 UTP cable. The
10BASE-T traffic can use Category 3 or Category 4 cable.
Caution
Category 5e and Category 6 cables can store high levels of static electricity. Always ground the cables
to a suitable and safe earth ground before connecting them to the switch module or other devices.
The autonegotiation feature is enabled by default on the External Management Port. At this setting, the
port configures itself to operate at the speed of attached devices. If the attached device does not support
autonegotiation, you can explicitly set the External Management Port speed and the duplex parameters.
To maximize performance, either allow the port to 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 on the External Management Port. With auto-MDIX enabled, the port detects the
required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the interface accordingly. Therefore,
you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for connections to the External Management
Port, regardless of the type of device on the other end of the connection.
Refer to the Cisco Nexus 4001I and 4005I Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter NX-OS Configuration
Guide and the Cisco Nexus 4001I and 4005I Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter NX-OS Command
Reference for more information about enabling or disabling autonegotiation, and auto-MDIX.
If auto-MDIX is disabled, use the guidelines in Table 2-1 to select the correct cable for connecting the
switch-module 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports to other devices. See the “Cable Specifications” section on
page B-2 for cable-pinout descriptions.
