SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
The IOM-29-4-MIX, IOM-29-4-IR, IOM-29-4-LR, IOM-39-1 and IOM-39-1-LR connectors use Class 1 Laser
transceivers. Read the following safety information before installing or operating one of these modules.
The Class 1 Laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This control loop
eliminates the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and does not allow any user
adjustment. Class 1 Laser transceivers comply with the following safety standards:
•
•
•
21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).
IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).
When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1 accessible emission
limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered hazardous.
LASER RADIATION AND CONNECTORS
When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum amount of radiant power
exiting the fiber (under normal conditions) is -12.6dBm or 55x10-6 watts.
Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly from the optical port. The
maximum radiance from the optical port (under worst case conditions) is 0.8 W cm -2 or 8x103 W m-2 sr-1.
Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to view laser output increases
eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, you must remove power from the network adapter.

FIBER OPTIC PROTECTIVE CAPS
Warning
READ BEFORE REMOVING FIBER OPTIC PROTECTIVE CAPS.
Cable assemblies and MMF/SMF ports are shipped with protective caps to prevent contamination. To avoid
contamination, replace port caps on all fiber optic devices when not in use.
Cable assemblies and MMF/SMF ports that become contaminated may experience signal loss or difficulty inserting
and removing cable assemblies from MMF/SMF ports.
Contamination can be removed from cable assemblies by:
1.
Blowing surfaces with canned duster (Chemtronics p/n ES1270 or equivalent).
2.
Using a fiber port cleaning swab (Alcoa Fujikura LTS p/n ACT-01 or equivalent) saturated with
optical-grade isopropyl alcohol, gently wipe the end surface of ferrules first; then wipe down the
sides of both ferrules.
3.
Blow ferrule surfaces dry with canned duster.
Contamination can be removed from MMF/SMF ports by:
1.
Using the extension tube supplied with canned duster, blow into the optical port, being careful not
to allow the extension tube to touch the bottom of the optical port.
2.
Reconnect cable and check for proper mating. If problems remain, gently wipe out optical port with
a DRY fiber port cleaning swab and repeat step 1.
Warning
To avoid contamination, replace port caps on all fiber optic devices when not
in use.

unplugging the SmartSwitch 6000 chassis. You can install as many as five switch modules in each chassis (using the
6C205-3 power supply). In this configuration, the SmartSwitch 6A000 modules provide up to 75 user ports. Modules
should be connected with inter-module trunks if traffic must cross between modules. Table 2-2 shows the maximum
number of LAN and ATM switch modules that can be installed in a SmartSwitch 6000 chassis.

3 CONFIGURING THE SWITCH
3.1
SWITCH CONFIGURATION
Initial configuration of your SmartSwitch 6A000 consists of setting the name of the switch, its Ethernet IP address,
subnet mask, and default gateway. Once this is done, the switch is reachable for additional configuration and
administration through its Ethernet interface.
Perform the following steps to configure initial switch parameters:
1.
Configure a dumb terminals or workstation running terminal emulation software to use the following
communication parameters:
-
Baud rate = 9600
Data bits = 8
Stop bits = 1
Parity = none
Flow Control = none
Note
2.
If you are using a PC or other workstation with a standard 9-pin serial port, install
the supplied 9-pin serial port RJ-45 adapter on your workstation.
Plug one end of the supplied RJ-45 UTP cable into the 9-pin serial port RJ-45 adapter.
Note
For information about serial port adapter wiring, see Chapter 5, "Specifications."
3.
Plug the other end of the UTP cable into the SmartSwitch 6A000 female RJ-45 jack labeled Terminal
(see Figure 3-1).
4.
Connect the switch to your Ethernet network by plugging a UTP cable into the SmartSwitch 6A000
female RJ-45 jack labeled Ethernet (see Figure 3-1).

Once you enter these parameters and reboot the switch, you can log off the local console connection. You can perform
all additional configuration over your Ethernet network using a telnet session.
Note
Only one console connection is allowed at any time. To reach the SmartSwitch
6A000 through telnet, you must exit the local terminal connection by entering the
exit command.
The following is an example of the initial configuration session. Note that your start up screen may look slightly
different, but the same information is requested.

3.1.1
Backup Configuration
Backup configuration consists of setting up the SmartSwitch 6A000 to save configuration backup files. The backup
configuration file contains all configuration changes made to the switch. For example, the backup file contains ELAN
information, port configuration changes, PVCs, filters, and so on.
Note
The backup file does not contain an image of the switch operating firmware. For
information on upgrading or replacing switch firmware, see the SmartSwitch
ATM User Guide.
Perform the following steps to configure backup capabilities.
1.
On a workstation that can be reached by your SmartSwitch 6A000 and is running TFTP server
software, create a file under the /tftpboot directory. This file is used as the backup file by the
SmartSwitch 6A000, and can initially be blank.
2.
Make sure that the SmartSwitch 6A000 has full read/write privileges to the file.
3.
Enter the backup switch command on the SmartSwitch 6A000. Specify the IP address of the TFTP
server and the full path and file name to the backup file. For example:
SmartSwitch # backup switch
ServerIP()
Path(public/Smart6A000.ztr)
: 206.61.237.40
— IP address of the backup TFTP server
— full path and file name
: /tftpboot/backup.ztr
SmartSwitch #
SmartSwitch 6A000 Installation and Setup Guide 3-3
Using the Console
Configuring the Switch
Note
Depending upon whether your TFTP server is running in secure or non-secure
mode, you may not need to specify /tftpboot in the path to the backup file. If you
experience access violation errors, try leaving off /tftpboot from the path.
Note
It’s a good idea to backup the SmartSwitch 6A000 each time you make a
permanent or significant change to the switch’s configuration.
Once the SmartSwitch 6A000 configuration is backed up, you can restore the configuration by entering the restore
command. For example:
switch
SmartSwitch # restore switch
ServerIP(206.61.237.40)
Path(tftpboot/backup/smart6A000.ztr)
:
— Remembers last IP address entered
: — Remembers last path and file name entered
Backup file is valid.
Restoring a backup file will completely replace any data stored in the flash, and requires a switch
reboot
Are you sure this is what you want to do?
Confirm(y/n)?:y
— Yes, restore the configuration
Restoration complete.
Rebooting is required to ensure correct operation,
Do you want to reboot now?
— Yes, reboot the switch
Confirm(y/n)?:y
3.2
USING THE CONSOLE
Use the SmartSwitch 6A000 console interface to configure and manage your switch. The following is a description of
the console interface and its operation.
3.2.1
Port Numbering
The SmartSwitch 6A000 is capable of containing both physical and virtual ports. The following conventions are used
for numbering ports on the SmartSwitch 6A000.
Physical Ports
Physical ports are numbered according to the following convention:
I/O module letter
port number
For example, port 3 of I/O module A on the TSM in slot 5 is represented by: A5
3-4 SmartSwitch 6A000 Installation and Setup Guide
Configuring the Switch
Using the Console
Virtual Ports
Virtual ports are designated by a period (.), and the virtual port number is appended to the physical port number. For
example, virtual port 2 on physical port A5 is represented as: A5.2
3.2.2
Console Commands
Note
For detailed descriptions of all console commands, see the SmartSwitch ATM
Switch Reference Manual.
All console commands use the syntax:
operator switch-attribute [<parameter 1> <parameter 2>... <parameter n>]
Where the operator is one of the following:
show (display):
add (create):
Show the current values used by a switch-attribute.
Add a new instance of a switch-attribute.
delete (remove):
modify (set):
start:
Delete an instance of a switch-attribute.
Change the values that currently define a switch-attribute.
Start a process on the switch; for example, start the LAN Emulation Configuration Server.
restart:
Restart a process on the switch; for example, restart a client.
flush:
Remove assigned values; for example, flush a route table.
alias:
Create easier names for often-used commands and their parameters.
SmartSwitch 6A000 Installation and Setup Guide 3-5

4.3
MANAGING YOUR ATM NETWORK
SmartSwitch ATM Administrator can connect to your ATM switches through either the switch’s Ethernet interface or
through a direct ATM connection to one of the ATM switches. In the later case, your NMS workstation must contain
an ATM network adapter card.
Using an ATM adapter to reach your ATM network is the preferred type of connection for ATM Administrator. Using
ATM to connect to your ATM network avoids issues related to maintaining a parallel Ethernet network. ATM assures
that all switches are reachable, and that all switches can reach important services such as the TFTP and BootP servers.
Using ATM also removes the need to create and keep track of special Ethernet routes that may be needed for
connectivity (see "Ethernet Connectivity").
4.3.1
ATM Connectivity
Connecting the NMS workstation to your network through an ATM network adapter card is the easiest way to manage
your ATM network. To set up ATM Administrator to use ATM, create an ELAN that is dedicated to network
management (named “NMS”, for instance). Then, make all ATM switches and the NMS workstation clients of this
ELAN (see Figure 4-5). Using this special ELAN for network management not only assure that ATM Administrator
can reach all ATM switches, it also provides a certain amount of security because all network management activity
occurs on its own subnet.

Ethernet Connectivity
If you decide to use an Ethernet adapter in your NMS workstation, SmartSwitch ATM Administrator can manage your
ATM switch network through each switch’s Ethernet interface. However, depending on your network’s topology,
managing through Ethernet may pose connectivity challenges.
For example, in figure Figure 4-6, two ATM switches are displayed as generic switch icons (gray boxes, identified by
the IP address of their LANE client). In this case, each of these generic switches are not connected to the Ethernet
network, but are connected to the other switches through ATM only. Ethernet connected switches adjacent to the
generic switches inform ATM Administrator of the existence of the generic switches. However, because the generic
switches are not connected to the Ethernet network, the NMS cannot reach these devices, and ATM Administrator
cannot communicate with them to find out what they are.

Managing Your ATM Network
ATM Administrator
Figure 4-6 Switches that ATM Administrator cannot reach through Ethernet
Figure 4-7 is a diagram of the ATM and Ethernet connectivity of the network map shown in Figure 4-6. Notice that the
generic switches, 90.1.1.20 (Switch 4) and 90.1.1.24 (Switch 5), are not connected to the Ethernet network. As a result,
switches 4 and 5 do not have direct access to the NMS, and the NMS (using an Ethernet connection) does not know
how to reach the subnet 90.0.0.0, which is Switches 4 and 5’s ELAN.

This connectivity problem can be fixed by creating routes between the NMS and the non-Ethernet connected switches:
1.
Add a route on the NMS that specifies the gateway to 90.0.0.0 as the Ethernet interface of a switch
that has connectivity to both Ethernet and the ATM ELAN.
4-8 SmartSwitch 6A000 Installation and Setup Guide
ATM Administrator
2.
Managing Your ATM Network
Add routes on Switches 4 and 5 that specify the LANE client of their adjacent switches as the
gateway to the Ethernet network (126.231.44.0 in this example).
Note
All switches specified as gateways must have connectivity to both the Ethernet
and ATM networks.
For instance, in Figure 4-8, after the route is added to the NMS, a route must be added to Switch 4 that specifies Switch
1’s LANE client as the gateway to the Ethernet network. To add the route on Switch 4, use the add route console
command:
SmartSwitch # add route
DestNetIP()
GatewayIP()
: 206.61.237.0
— Switch 1’s LANE client
: 90.1.1.22
SmartSwitch #
Similarly, a route must be added to Switch 5 that specifies Switch 2’s LANE client as the gateway to the Ethernet
network:
SmartSwitch # add route
DestNetIP()
GatewayIP()
: 206.61.237.0
: 90.1.1.15 — Switch 2’s LANE client
SmartSwitch #
To see the new route, enter the show
