Chapter 1: Introduction
1.3 IRM3 FRONT PANEL
The IRM3 incorporates two ports that connect to external network
segments:
•
One pair of IEEE 802.3 FOIRL fiber optic ports. The fiber optic ST
port accommodates a wide variety of multimode fiber optic cable,
including 50/125 µm, 62.5/125 µm, and 100/140 µm fiber optic cable,
up to 2 km in length.
•
An IEEE 802.3 compliant AUI port. The AUI port allows you to
connect the module to a variety of Ethernet transmission media
including twisted pair, fiber optic, and/or thick or thin Ethernet coaxial
cable by way of an external transceiver.
Either one of these ports can act as the repeater port to the external
network. When the IRM3 is first powered up, the AUI port acts as the
repeater port and the fiber ports are off. Using the IRM3 network
management capabilities (see Chapter 4, Local Management), you can
reverse this configuration to have the fiber port act as the repeater port and
have the AUI port off. This configuration allows you to connect the IRM3
to a fiber optic link segment directly without having to use an external
fiber optic transceiver.
The IRM3 also provides the option, through remote management, to set
one port as the active repeater port and the other port as a redundant
repeater port.
Built into the front panel of the IRM3 are two standard 9-pin RS232
console ports labeled CONSOLE and UPS. The CONSOLE port enables
you to access the IRM3/LM locally or remotely using a Hayes compatible
modem. If you are using a CS-600R/CS-1250R series Uninterruptible
Power Source (UPS), the UPS port enables you to monitor and control the
UPS through the IRM3 using SPECTRUM Element Manager for
Windows or SPECTRUM. The front panel also has a reset switch to
initialize the IRM3 processor.
The IRM3 incorporates the Cabletron Systems LANVIEW Status
Monitoring and Diagnostic System. If a problem arises, such as a power
failure or a cable fault, the LANVIEW LEDs (see Section 5.1, Using
LANVIEW) help you to diagnose it.
Page 1-4
IRM3 User’s Guide
Repeater Functionality
The LANVIEW LEDs on the IRM3 indicate the following conditions:
•
The IRM3 is receiving power
•
An error has been detected with the IRM3
•
The IRM3 is receiving packets from any segment connected to the
MMAC
•
The IRM3 is detecting a collision from the network
1.3.1 IRM3 Features
There are a number of features that provide for efficient use and
maintenance of the IRM3. These features include the following:
•
Flash EPROM. This feature enables you to upgrade the IRM3 without
replacing firmware. Flash EPROMs can be updated remotely by
downloading the new software by way of Cabletron Systems
SPECTRUM Element Manager for Windows.
•
Thermal Sensors. These sensors warn the management station if the
IRM3 begins to overheat.
•
Ethernet SNMP Proxy. With SNMP proxy, you can use IRM3 remote
management to control power settings for the American Power
Conversion’s uninterruptible power source (UPS).
•
Connect the UPS to the IRM3 UPS port to control the power supply
through an SNMP compliant network management tool, such as
Cabletron Systems SPECTRUM Element Manager for Windows and
SPECTRUM.
1.4 REPEATER FUNCTIONALITY
The IEEE 802.3 compliant repeater on the IRM3 provides the MMAC
with the ability to achieve maximum data paths on all Ethernet
transmission media, including 10BASE-T, fiber optic, and thick or thin
Ethernet type cabling. To attain maximum data paths, the IRM3 retimes
IRM3 User’s Guide
Page 1-5
Chapter 1: Introduction
data packets and regenerates the preamble of each data packet that enters
the MMAC.
In addition, IRM3 repeater functionality assures that problem segments
connected to any port on the MMAC do not affect any other segments
connected to the MMAC. If 32 consecutive collisions are detected on any
segment, or if a collision detector is on for more than 2.4 ms, the IRM3
automatically partitions that segment. The segment automatically
reconnects to the MMAC after a packet is transmitted onto the segment
without causing a collision.
1.5 NETWORK MANAGEMENT CAPABILITIES
The Cabletron Systems IRM3 can be controlled and managed by a variety
of network management packages which include the following:
•
Cabletron Systems SPECTRUM
•
Cabletron Systems SPECTRUM Element Manager for Windows
•
Cabletron Systems IRM3/LM (Local Management)
•
Third Party SNMP compliant Network Management Packages
The IRM3 network management capabilities provide the necessary
management tools for the IRM3 to operate at its full capacity. Your ability
to set up parameters within the network management capabilities ensures
optimal performance of the IRM3, and, hence, the network.
For example, a great deal of statistical information on the port, board, and
MMAC device level is gathered by the IRM3, including each of the
following:
•
Packets
•
Bytes Received
•
Collisions
•
Giant Packets
•

NETWORK PLANNING AND CONFIGURATION
This chapter addresses some of the configuration issues that you should
consider when installing the IRM3, including 802.3 standards related to
repeaters, transceivers, and cables. This chapter also gives an overview of
Cabletron Systems Multi Media Access Center (MMAC) and the Media
Interface Modules (MIM) that can be managed by the IRM3. Finally, an
example of a network configuration using the IRM3 is provided.
2.1 NETWORK REQUIREMENTS
When connecting network segments to the IRM3, you must follow the
network guidelines listed below.
2.1.1 802.3 Repeater Requirements
Depending on the size of your network, you may need to use multiple
repeaters. When planning your network, keep in mind that 802.3
standards allow for no more than four repeaters in one data path. If your
network requires more than four repeaters, use a bridge to create a new
data path.
2.1.2 AUI Port Requirements
The IRM3 provides the flexibility of connecting to a network with
different types of media through the AUI port. Using an AUI cable along
with the proper Cabletron Systems transceiver, you can connect to the
network with AUI cable, coaxial cable, twisted pair cable, or fiber optic
cable.
IRM3 User’s Guide
Page 2-1
Chapter 2: Network Planning and Configuration
When connecting a network segment to the IRM3 through a transceiver
and an AUI cable, the following requirements must be met:
•
The transceiver to which the IRM3 will be connected must meet
Ethernet Version 1, Version 2 or IEEE 802.3 standards.
•
The AUI cables connecting the IRM3 to the transceiver on the network
must be IEEE 802.3 type cables and must not exceed 50 meters in
length.
•
The Signal Quality Error (SQE) function on the transceiver must be
disabled.
The SQE function is used to confirm that the collision signaling
of the transceiver is working properly. However, when
connecting a transceiver to the IRM3, or any other repeater,
you must disable the SQE test function. If SQE is not disabled,
the repeater regards each SQE signal as a collision and
resends the JAM packet, causing a considerable slowdown of
network operations.
NOTE
2.1.3 Fiber Optic Port Requirements
When connecting a Fiber Optic Link Segment to the IRM3 fiber optic ST
ports, the following requirements must be met:
•
Cable Type - The fiber optic link segment should consist of one of the
following:
-
•
50/125 µm fiber optic cabling
62.5/125 µm fiber optic cabling
100/140 µm fiber optic cabling
Attenuation - The fiber optic cable must be tested with a fiber optic
attenuation test set that is adjusted for an 850 nm wavelength. This test
verifies that the signal loss in a cable is within an acceptable level:
-
13.0 dB or less for 50/125 µm fiber cable segment
16.0 dB or less for 62.5/125 µm fiber cable segment
19.0 dB or less for 100/140 µm fiber cable segment
Page 2-2
IRM3 User’s Guide
The IRM3 in the Multi Media Access Center
•
Budget and Propagation Delay - When determining the maximum
fiber optic cable length, the fiber optic budget delay and total network
propagation should be calculated and taken into consideration before
fiber runs are incorporated in any network design. Fiber optic budget
is the combination of the optical loss due to the fiber optic cable,
in-line splices, and fiber optic connectors. Propagation delay is the
amount of time it takes a packet to travel from the sending device to
the receiving device.
•
Length - IEEE 802.3 specifications for fiber optic cable allow for a
maximum of 1 km. However, distances of at least 2 km can usually be
achieved.
2.2 THE IRM3 IN THE MULTI MEDIA ACCESS CENTER
The IRM3 is designed to be installed in a Cabletron Systems Multi Media
Access Center (MMAC) network hub with the Flexible Network Bus
(FNB) - See Figure 2-1. The MMAC is fully protocol independent and is
available in an eight slot (MMAC-M8FNB), five slot (MMAC-M5FNB)
and three slot (MMAC-M3FNB) model.
When installed in an MMAC, the IRM3 supports 10 Mbps Ethernet
(IEEE 802.3), as well as 4 and 16 Mbps Token Ring (IEEE 802.5) Media
Interface Modules (MIMs) using shielded twisted pair (STP) or
unshielded twisted pair (UTP), fiber optic, thin or thick coaxial and
standard AUI transceiver cabling. The IRM3 retimes and regenerates
packets for each port of each Ethernet MIM installed in the MMAC, and
allows users to access management information for all Token Ring and
Ethernet MIMs in the MMAC.

3.2.2 Setting the CTS External/Internal Jumper (H6, H8)
The IRM3 UPS port and CONSOLE port are RS232 interfaces that use
Request to Send (RTS), Clear to Send (CTS), and Data Terminal Ready
(DTR) to control data flow. If the device connected to either the UPS port
or CONSOLE port does not provide RTS or DTR, the IRM3 must be
configured to compensate (internally) for the lack of these signals. In
those situations, the CTS External/Internal jumpers (H6 for the UPS port
and H8 for the CONSOLE port) allow the IRM3 to generate the CTS
signal internally. Refer to the Users Manual of the device to determine the
requirements for this jumper setting.
IRM3 User’s Guide
Page 3-3
Chapter 3: Installing the IRM3
Set the CTS External/Internal Jumper as follows:
•
If RTS or DTR is generated by your device to the IRM3, place the
jumper over pins 2 and 3. This is the position in which the IRM3 is
shipped.
•
If RTS or DTR must be generated internally by the IRM3, place the
jumper over pins 1 and 2.
3.2.3 Setting the THN-MIM Jumper (JP1)
The THN-MIM Jumper (JP1, Figure 3-1) may need to be set depending
on the revision level of the THN-MIMs installed in your MMAC. To
check the revision level of the THN-MIM, refer to the part number
located in the lower left corner of the module (same side as the backplane
connector). Set the THN-MIM Jumper as follows:
•
If you are using THN-MIM part numbers 9000043-06 and above in
your MMAC, place the jumper over pin 2 and pin 3. This is the
position in which the IRM3 is shipped.
•
If you are using THN-MIM part numbers 9000043-05 and below in
your MMAC, place the jumper over pin 1 and pin 2.
!
CAUT ION
If THN-MIM part numbers 9000043-05 and below and
9000043-06 and above are both installed in your MMAC, the
THN-MIM Jumper must be placed over pin 1 and pin 2.
3.3 INSTALLING THE IRM3 INTO AN MMAC CHASSIS

Pre-installation Test
3.4 PRE-INSTALLATION TEST
Before installing the IRM3 in a live network, test the module in a
controlled situation to ensure that it is repeating packets. With the IRM3
installed in an MMAC hub with a Media Interface Module (MIM), this
test can be performed with two workstations (Figure 3-1) by completing
the following steps:
1. Install a Media Interface Module (TPMIM, FOMIM, THN-MIM, etc.)
into the same MMAC chassis as the IRM3.
2. Connect the first workstation to either the MIM, using the appropriate
cable and transceiver; or to the IRM3 using either the AUI port, using
a transceiver and an AUI cable; or to the fiber optic port, using fiber
optic cable; depending on which is the active repeater port.
NOTE
The AUI port is the default active repeater port. If you want to
test the IRM3 using the fiber port, it must be selected through
Local Management. Please refer to Chapter 4 for more
information on selecting the active repeater port.
3. Connect the second workstation to the MIM, using the appropriate
transceivers and cable.
4. Set the first workstation as the file server and the second as the client
(refer to the workstation documentation for setting up the workstations
as file server and client). When the workstations are properly set up,
proceed to send packets between the workstations and verify that the
IRM3 is operating properly.
NOTE
A “ping” test will verify that the IRM3 is operating properly.
However, both server and client workstations must have their
own unique IP Adresses.
If failures occur, refer to the Troubleshooting section in Chapter 5.

3.5.2 Connecting to the Network Through the
Fiber Optic Port
When connecting a fiber optic link segment to the IRM3 Fiber Optic
ports, you must keep the following in mind:
•
ST connectors attach to ST ports much like BNC connectors attach to
BNC ports. The connector is inserted into the port with the alignment
slot on the connector inserted into the alignment key on the port. The
connector is then turned clockwise to lock it down.
•
The physical communication link consists of two strands of fiber optic
cabling: the Transmit (TX) and the Receive (RX). The Transmit strand
from the fiber optic port on the module will be connected to the
Receive port of a fiber optic Ethernet device at the other end of the
segment. The Receive strand of the fiber optic port on the module will
be connected to the Transmit port of the fiber optic Ethernet device.
•
Label the fiber optic cable to indicate which fiber is Receive and which
is Transmit. When you buy fiber optic cable from Cabletron Systems,
it is labeled so that at one end of the cable, one fiber is labeled 1, and
the other fiber is labeled 2. This pattern is repeated at the other end of
the cable. If you did not purchase your cable from Cabletron Systems,
be sure to label your cable in this manner.
!
CAUT ION
Do not touch the ends of the fiber optic strands, and do not let
the ends come in contact with dust, dirt, or other contaminants.
Contamination of the ends can cause problems in data
transmissions. If the ends become contaminated, clean them
with denatured alcohol using a soft, clean, lint free cloth.
Connect a fiber optic link segment to an IRM3 FOIRL Fiber Optic port by
performing the following steps:
1. Remove the protective plastic covers from the fiber optic ports and
from the ends of the connectors on each fiber strand.
2. Attach the fiber labeled 1 (Figure 3-6) to the receive port, labeled RX,
on the module.
3. Attach the fiber labeled 2 to the transmit port, labeled TX, on the
module.

3.6 INSTALLATION CHECKOUT
After the IRM3 is connected to the network, verify that packets can be
passed between the two Ethernet network segments through the IRM3. As
in the pre-installation checkout, use two workstations set up as file server
and client. Keep the server workstation stationary in the wiring closet
with the IRM3, and use the client workstation to move around to each
node that is connected to the IRM3 (Figure 3-7).
You can verify the installation checkout by performing the following
steps:
1. Connect the server workstation to either a MIM, using the appropriate
cable and transceiver, or to the IRM3 through either the AUI port,
using a transceiver and an AUI cable, or to the Fiber Optic port,
using fiber optic cable.
2. Going to each node connected to the MMAC, connect the client
workstation and proceed to test the segment.
A “ping” test will verify that the IRM3 is operating properly.

Ring Port Status
The Ring Port Status fields display only when you have a Token Ring
concentrator module with externally accessible ring ports installed in the
MMAC. These fields provide the Ring In (RI) and Ring Out (RO)
conditions for the following:
•
STATUS
Indicates the On or Off condition for the Ring In and Ring Out ports.
•
PHANTOM
This field appears only with boards that support a phantom current.
Indicates the status of the phantom current. An ON status indicates that
the signal is being generated and that the port is inserted in the ring.
An OFF status indicates that no signal is being generated.
•

ring ports. Indicates the media type setting for the Ring In and Ring
Out ports: Shielded Twisted Pair (STP) or Fiber Optic.
FNB Status
Token Ring boards incorporate a Flexible Network Bus (FNB)
multiplexer which controls the FNB right and FNB left paths. Each slot
supports a left and a right multiplexer connection. Six possible FNB
status conditions are listed below:
•
LEFT...... ATTACHED
Indicates the board is attached to the left FNB multiplexer. This
indicates that the adjoining board has an open right FNB multiplexer
(as long as both boards are set to the same ring speed, and are not in a
bypass state).
•
LEFT...... DETACHED
Indicates that the board is disconnected from the left FNB multiplexer.
This means it is also disconnected from all boards to its left in the
MMAC.
•
LEFT...... FAULTED
Indicates that the Token Ring board has attempted to attach Left, but
failed. Some reasons for a faulted condition include the following: no
board inserted to the left, a non-Token Ring board inserted to the left,
or a Token Ring board is installed but not properly configured for a
connection (i.e., different ring speed setting).
