The new ServSwitch™ Freedom is the latest innovation in keyboard-video-mouse solutions. It enables a user to switch seamlessly between four individual CPUs and connected monitors simply by moving the mouse to the desired monitor. This KVM switch features exclusive Glide and Switch technology that provides fast control of up to four CPUs/monitors with a single keyboard and mouse.

To learn more, visit www.blackbox.com/go/Freedom .

• With Glide and Switch technology, the user’s mouse and keyboard shift control to different CPUs when the mouse moves the cursor to the related monitor.

• Immediately access and switch instantly between multiple systems with one keyboard and one mouse.

• Ideal for command and control centers, such as E911 operations and financial trading desks.

• It’s similar to an extended desktop operation, but it reduces the number of keyboard and mice needed—saving time, space, and money.

• Four-port, professional grade switch that supports quick-fire switching via hotkeys or front-panel buttons.

• Setup is simple, and there is no software to install on the connected machines.

Introduction

Why Is Branding Important?

A brand is a promise. Many consistencies go into building brand recognition: logo, font, color, phrasing, layout positioning, processes, pricing, data organization, frequency of communication, service availability, and style. When a company maintains these brand elements, a customer gains a comfort level with what to expect. This trust and confidence result in smoother business transactions and increased sales.

“ Global brands transcend their origins and create strong, enduring relationships with consumers across countries and cultures.”

— Wikipedia

The Objective of This Guide

Black Box Network Services is a global brand and it’s incumbent upon all of us to protect and promote it. This guide is produced to provide a very concise, extremely high-level understanding of what defines the Black Box Network Services brand and help define accepted brand guidelines. It merely scratches the surface of the many details reviewed internally that go into making consistent Black Box marketing pieces.

Although a great deal of Black Box’s marketing pieces are produced by the Marketing & Media Services Department, it’s still helpful for other Team Members to be familiar with our branding. Reviewing this guide will help illustrate some of the elements we rely on to build brand recognition.

Logo Usage

General Rule

The “Double Diamond” part of the Black Box Network Services logo is designed to be a black box with white outlines.

See below. Our base Adobe Illustrator

®

logo file (bboxnetservlogo.eps) contains both black and white versions and notes to the left of the images labeling the colors used in each. Other formats (gif, jpg, etc.) are available as well.

On a white background, the outlines “disappear”.

The Exception

Subject here

Headline here.

Subhead here.

Reversed out of black; only the outlines appear.

On a color background, both the white outlines and black shapes will appear.

BLACK BOX

®

The top of this Double

Diamond should align with the top of the translucent gray bar.

The bottom should align with the bottom of the blue gradation.

BLACK BOX

The Double Diamond should be cropped to bleed off the right edge by having “first base” of the center diamond touch the right edge.

Logo Usage

Sizing and Formats

The logo can be used at any readable size. Using the correct format for your specific logo application is necessary to achieve an acceptable result.

For press printing, tradeshow banners, silkscreening

eps — Because Adobe Illustrator eps files are vector- (or line-) based, they can be enlarged or reduced without losing resolution.

For Web site, Word or PowerPoint

®

docs

jpg, tif, or png

— RGB Adobe Photoshop jpg or png files are pixel-based, therefore they will lose resolution when enlarged.

However, these are recommended because of their small file size and PC compatibility.

For Web site, Word or PowerPoint docs with a color background gif — A gif is also a pixel-based format, but it can be created with a transparent background without requiring the creation of a clipping path.

Margins

There should always be a margin around the entire logo that is as wide as the “N” in “NETWORK SERVICES” is high.

A larger logo will demand a larger margin.

Gaps are to allow for the white outline of the double diamond.

What NOT to Do to the Logo

Do not:

• Change the color.

• Skew (narrow or widen) the logo in any unproportional way.

• Alter the stacking of the words or the horizontal or vertical spacing between them..

• Change the spacing or position between the Double Diamond and the words.

• Attempt to redraw the logo or use different fonts.

• Outline the logo.

• Embed the logo in text in lieu of spelling out "Black Box Network Services."

DO:

• Use an official, approved logo file provided by corporate headquarters.

• Ask, if you have any questions at all. (For contact information, see page 24.)

BLACK BOX

Registration Marks

Both the Double Diamond and Black Box are registered trademarks, so the logo will always contain two ®s.

Network clock synchronization

Making networks run on time.

BLACK BOX

®

How Network Time Protocol ensures that devices across the network are synchronized with each other.

Tabbed banner design is used for the

cover front

of multipage documents.

Copyright and trademark statements, and file name and version number should appear on the

back cover.

Network clock synchronization

Choose a variety of time servers that take their time from different sources. This ensures the greatest accuracy and also ensures that time servers are still available if one goes down.

Have enough upstream time servers but not too many. Because NTP compares times from different servers to determine which are most accurate, it needs enough servers to compare, even if one or two go down. Five servers is often recommended as a good minimum number to ensure accuracy. On the other hand, NTP won’t use more than ten servers, although it can be set to monitor more.

NTP servers that set their own time

If there’s no requirement that network time align precisely with UTC, there is no reason not to simply set up an NTP server that syncs the network to its own manually set internal clock, essentially acting as its own Stratum 0 reference clock. This method brings all the devices on the network into sync with each other, but only approximates time outside the network.

Approximate time, however, doesn’t work well for networks that regularly interface with other networks or for networks that must keep to UTC for regulatory reasons. Financial institutions, for instance, must precisely timestamp each transaction and must have a time server that’s not only aligned with UTC but also stands up to audit.

Conclusion

Today’s networks operate with the assumption that time is synchronized between network devices. The most popular way to achieve this goal is to use NTP, a versatile protocol that can maintain a high level of synchronization while using minimal network resources.

Rear-panel DIP switches enable you to configure the converter quickly so you’re up and running in a matter of minutes. Simply ensure that connected nodes are set to operate in flow control mode identical to that of the media converter. No further intervention is required.

And though it’s designed to work as a PoE PD, the PoE converter doesn‘t have to be used this way. It also works as a pure converter.

It’s even ideal for temporary setups where you need to convert copper twisted-pair interfaces to fiber media, and vice versa.

technically speaking

Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides a way for network devices to be powered by their data cables rather than by separate power cords. The IEEE 802.3af PoE standard calls for

48 volts of AC power over any grade of UTP wire, including

Category 3, 5, 5e, and 6. The specification covers power sourcing equipment (PSE) and powered devices (PDs). The

PSE puts power onto the UTP cable, and the PD picks it off.

How does PoE work? Very simply, Ethernet cable consists of four twisted pairs of cable: two pairs for data transmission and two “free” pairs that can be used for other purposes.

802.3af PoE uses either the spare pairs or the data pairs to transmit power. It adds DC power to the wires using signal transformers and picks off power at the far end the same way.

Although sending power over the data pairs rather than the spare pairs would seem to be counterintuitive, data and power transmissions don’t interfere with each other because they’re at opposite ends of the frequency spectrum.

Specifically, electricity has a low frequency of 60 Hz or less, and data transmissions have frequencies that can range from

10 million to 100 million Hz.

The 802.3af standard calls for the maximum power available to any powered device to be 12.95 watts with a voltage range of 36 VDC to 57 VDC. This is more than enough to power typical PoE devices, such as wireless access points.

OVERVIEW

Bridge Fast Ethernet fiber optic and copper segments and provide reliable power to devices in out-of-the-way areas.

The BLACK BOX ® PoE PSE Media Converter not only connects

100BASE-FX fiber to 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX copper, but it also functions as power source equipment (PSE) in Power over Ethernet

(PoE) applications.

PoE enables you to provide power over the spare pairs of an

Ethernet data cable to compatible PoE-powered devices (PDs). These can be wireless access points, CCTV security cameras, or VoIP phones.

The PoE PSE Media Converter works as an endpoint PSE that delivers

-48-VDC power via twisted-pair cable Pins 1, 2, 3, and 6.

Using a single cable to deliver both data and power gives you added flexibility. It’s particularly beneficial in areas where you’re short on AC power outlets, and it eliminates the need to run separate AC power circuits to devices at the edge of your LAN.

In a typical PoE application, you’d use the PoE PSE Media

Converter to convert copper and fiber in order to extend your data runs at long distances over interference-free, signal-enhancing optical cable. Then, at the end of the fiber run, you would use a remote management PC or security station to communicate with the PoE devices plugged into the converter.

The converter gets its power from an autosensing AC power supply that plugs into a standard outlet.

Compatible with the 802.3af PoE standard, the PoE PSE Media

Converter features an advanced autosensing algorithm that enables it to provide PDs with discovery, classification, current limit, and other necessary functions.

For PoE-side PD links, simply run a twisted-pair cable to compatible equipment. The converter supports 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX media.

Or set it up to adapt to the speed of the Ethernet or Fast Ethernet connection, and use it in an existing switch, bridge, or router application.

The media converter offers overcurrent and undercurrent detection, as well as fault protection input and power monitoring.

LEDs inform you if PoE feeding power is disrupted and the class of PD connected (4-W Class 1, 7-W Class 2, or 15.4-W Class 0 or 3 device).

PD signature sensing detects when a 802.3af-compliant PD is connected downstream. This helps protect non-802.3af legacy devices that may be accidentally connected to the converter.

On the fiber side, the media converter connects to 1310-nm

100BASE-FX media. Depending on the model you order, this can be multimode fiber optic cable with ST or SC type connectors or singlemode cable terminated with SC type connectors. The multimode PoE

PSE Media Converter models support full duplex fiber runs up to 2 kilometers (1.2 mi.) long, and the single-mode model supports full duplex fiber segments as far as 20 kilometers (12.4 mi.).

Link-fault passthrough and far-end fault detection keep you from sending valuable data across invalid links. Link status on one port is propagated to the other port. If either the twisted-pair or the fiber optic port is in link-fail state—if it’s unplugged, for instance—the converter disables the other port, thus passing through the link fault.

The converter also stops sending link pulse to the link partner if it detects loss of a fiber RX signal.

Non-product photos are to be black and white.

When using images of people, look for images that appear to be unposed. As a general rule, images where the person is smiling and looking directly at the camera are to be avoided. Additionally, whenever possible, avoid images that have become cliché: handshakes, people talking on cell phones, etc.

Use royalty-free, not rights-managed images.
