Figure 1-3
All Cisco uBR7100 series routers have one power supply with one AC-input power receptacle. A power
cable connects the AC-input power supply to the site AC power source. The router’s main power switch
is located next to the AC-input power receptacle. Separate power cords are available, depending on the
country of operation.
On the side of each chassis are two chassis ground receptacles—choose the most convenient set for a
chassis ground connection for a two-hole grounding lug, and the other set can provide a mounting
location for the cable management bracket. On the back of the chassis, there is a receptacle for
electrostatic discharge (ESD) equipment.
Four internal fans draw cooling air into the chassis (back to front) and across internal components to
maintain an acceptable operating temperature. There are four environmental sensors for monitoring the
cooling air as it leaves the chassis. For more information on environmental monitoring, see the
“Environmental Monitoring and Reporting Functions” section on page 6-2.
Caution
To ensure the proper flow of cooling air across the internal components, a port adapter must be installed
in the port adapter slot. If no port adapter is installed, install a blank port adapter (the product number
is MAS-7100-PABLANK=). Slot 5 has a blank face plate. For proper airflow, make sure that a blank
faceplate is always installed in slot 5. (The product number is SM-BLANK=).
The modular port adapter slides into the chassis slot and connects directly to the router; there are no
internal cables to connect.
The port adapter, fixed cable interface, and fixed LAN interface connect to two peripheral component
interconnect (PCI) buses on the router’s backplane that provide a path to packet I/O memory and the
system processor. For more information, see the “Peripheral Component Interconnect Buses” section on
page 1-14.
Cisco uBR7100 series routers can be installed on a tabletop or in an equipment rack. Rubber feet for
tabletop installation are included in the accessory kit that shipped with your router.
A rack-mount and cable-management kit is also standard equipment included with all Cisco uBR7100
series routers when they are shipped from the factory. The kit provides the hardware needed to mount
the router in a standard 19-inch, four-post or telco-type equipment rack. The rack-mount kit also
provides the hardware necessary to manage the interface cables attached to the router.
Note
Hardware to install the Cisco uBR7100 series in a 23-inch or 24-inch rack can also be ordered separately
(the order number is ACS-7100-RMK=).

Product Overview
Fixed Interface Units
Instructions for installing the router on a tabletop, installing the router in an equipment rack, and
attaching the cable-management bracket are given in Chapter 3, “Installing Cisco uBR7100 Series
Universal Broadband Routers.”
Fixed Interface Units
The Cisco uBR7100 series universal broadband router contains the following fixed interfaces:
•
Ethernet/Fast Ethernet LAN Interface, page 1-6
•
RF Cable Interface, page 1-6
Ethernet/Fast Ethernet LAN Interface
The Cisco uBR7100 series contains a fixed LAN Ethernet/Fast Ethernet autosensing interface with two
separately routable 100BASE-TX ports. Both ports support full-duplex and half-duplex operation, and
automatically determine whether the attached network is a 10-Mbps 10BASE-T Ethernet or a 100-Mbps,
100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet network. Each port uses an RJ-45 connector with Category 5 unshielded
twisted-pair (UTP) wiring.
RF Cable Interface
The Cisco uBR7100 series router includes a fixed cable interface card that provides one downstream port
and from one to four upstream ports, depending on the model.
On the Cisco uBR7111 and Cisco uBR7114 routers, the cable interface supports the North American
DOCSIS channel plan, with a 6 MHz National Television Systems Committee (NTSC) channel width,
with a 5 to 42 MHz upstream frequency range. The downstream supports the 54 to 858 MHz frequency
range with 64 QAM and 256 QAM data rates, while the upstream supports QPSK and 16 QAM data
rates.
On the Cisco uBR7111E and Cisco uBR7114E routers, the cable interface supports the EuroDOCSIS
channel plan, with an 8 MHz pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) and SECAM channel width, with a
5 to 65 MHz upstream frequency range. The downstream supports the 54 to 858 MHz frequency range
with 64 QAM and 256 QAM data rates, while the upstream supports QPSK and 16 QAM data rates.
Two downstream connectors are provided:
Note
•
DS0 RF—Outputs the downstream after it has been processed by the router’s integrated upconverter,
thereby creating an RF signal suitable for connection to a combiner and transmission on the coaxial
cable network.
•
DS0—Outputs the downstream as an IF signal, requiring an external upconverter to process the
signal for output on the coaxial cable network.
On the Cisco uBR7111E and Cisco uBR7114E routers, the DS0 connector is automatically muted when
the DS0 RF port is enabled.

Chassis Slot and Logical Interface Numbering
In Cisco uBR7100 series routers, the slot number is the location in the chassis where the interface resides
and the port number is the physical port associated with that slot. Cisco uBR7100 series router slots are
numbered 0 through 5. Interfaces in the Cisco IOS software are identified by a type, slot number, and
port number. The number of physical ports depends on the type of modular port adapter or fixed
interface. For example, Fast Ethernet 0/1 indicates port 1 on the fixed LAN interface in slot 0.
Slots in the Cisco uBR7100 series are numbered as follows:
Note
•
Slot 0—Fixed LAN (Fast Ethernet) interface
•
Slot 1—Fixed RF interface
•
Slot 3—Modular port adapter
Slots 2, 4, and 5 are not used on the Cisco uBR7100 series router.
Figure 1-5 illustrates the slot placement on Cisco uBR7114 and Cisco uBR7114E routers. The
placement on the Cisco uBR7111 and Cisco uBR7111E routers is identical.

Indentifing Interface Information in the Software
You can identify interfaces by using software commands. To display information about all interfaces,
use the show interfaces command. To display information about a specific interface, use the show
interfaces command with the interface type, slot number, and port number in the format show interfaces
type slot/port.
The following example shows how the show interfaces command, used without arguments, displays
status information (including the slot and port number) for each interface in a Cisco uBR7100 series
router. In the following example, most of the status information for each interface is omitted:

MAC Addresses
The Media Access Control (MAC) or hardware address is a standardized data-link layer address that is
required for certain network interface types. These addresses are not used by other devices in the
network; they are specific and unique to each port. The router uses a specific method to assign and
control the MAC addresses of its port adapter.
All LAN interfaces (ports) require unique MAC addresses. Typically, the MAC address of an interface
is stored on a memory component that resides directly on the interface circuitry; however, the online
insertion and removal (OIR) feature requires a different method. For a description of OIR, see the
“Online Insertion and Removal” section on page 1-14.
The OIR feature allows you to remove a port adapter and replace it with another identically configured
one. If the new port adapter matches the port adapter you removed, the system immediately brings it
online.

Chapter 1
Product Overview
Functional Overview
To allow OIR, an address allocator with unique MAC addresses is stored in an EEPROM on the router.
Each address is reserved for a specific port and slot in the router regardless of whether a port adapter
resides in that slot.
The MAC addresses for port adapters are assigned to slot 3 in Cisco uBR7100 series routers, not to a
particular port adapter. Assigning MAC addresses to the slot and not to the port adapter allows you to
remove a port adapter and insert the port adapter into other routers without causing the MAC addresses
to move around the network or to be assigned to multiple devices.
Note
Storing the MAC addresses for every slot in one central location means the addresses stay with the
memory device on which they are stored.
Online Insertion and Removal
The modular port adapter installed in Cisco uBR7100 series routers supports OIR. This function allows
you to install and replace a port adapter while the router is operating; you do not need to notify the
software or shut down the system power. This provides a method that is seamless to end users on the
network, maintains all routing information, and preserves sessions.
The following is a functional description of OIR for background information only; for specific
procedures for installing and replacing a port adapter in a Cisco uBR7100 series router, see the
configuration note that ships with each port adapter.
Each port adapter has a bus connector that connects it to the router. Each connector has a set of tiered
pins in three lengths that send specific signals to the system as they make contact with the port adapter.
The system assesses the signals it receives and the order in which it receives them to determine if a port
adapter is being removed or inserted into the router. From these signals, the system determines whether
to reinitialize a new interface or shut down a removed interface. For example, when you insert a port
adapter, the longest pins make contact with the port adapter first, and the shortest pins make contact last.
The system recognizes the signals and the sequence in which it receives them.
When you remove or insert a port adapter in a Cisco uBR7100 series router, the port adapter pins send
signals to notify the system, which then performs as follows:
1.
Rapidly scans the system for configuration changes.
2.
Initializes all newly inserted port adapters, noting any removed interfaces and placing them in the
administratively shutdown state.
3.
Brings all previously configured interfaces on the port adapter back to the state they were in when
they were removed. Any newly inserted interfaces are put in the administratively shutdown state, as
if they were present (but not configured) at boot time. If a similar port adapter type is reinserted into
a slot, its ports are configured and brought online up to the port count of the original port adapter.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Buses
All interfaces connect to two Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) buses on the router that provide
a path to packet I/O memory and the network processor. Slots 1 and 3 use PCI bus 0, and slot 0 uses
PCI bus 1. The maximum recommended bandwidth points on each PCI bus is 600 points.
Note
Slots 2, 4, and 5 are not used in the Cisco uBR7100 series routers.

Functional Overview
Network Processor Card
The network processor card resides inside the chassis and is shown in Figure 1-6 on page 1-16. The
network processor card provides the following features:
•
Senses OIR of the port adapter
•
Bridges the PCI buses from the interfaces to packet memory
•
Arbitrates traffic across the PCI buses
•
Generates the clock signals for the interfaces on each PCI bus
The network processor card also performs the following system management functions:
Note
•
Sending and receiving routing protocol updates
•
Managing tables, caches, and buffers
•
Monitoring interface and environmental status
•
Providing Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management and the console or Telnet
interface
•
Accounting and switching of data traffic
•
Booting and reloading images
•
Managing port adapters (recognition and initialization during OIR)
For instructions for removing and replacing memory components on the network processor card, such
as the SDRAM DIMMs, refer to Memory Replacement Instructions for the Network Processing Engine
or Network Services Engine and Input/Output Controller at the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/core/7206/fru/memory/index.htm
The network processor card consists of the following components:
Note
•
Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) microprocessor running at 175 MHz
•
Two system controllers—Provide processor access to two separate banks of SDRAM and permit
devices on both PCI buses to access either SDRAM bank. This means that devices on different PCI
buses can access different SDRAM banks simultaneously.
•
Upgradable memory modules—SDRAM system memory defaults to 128 MB and can be upgraded
to either 192 MB or 256 MB. (SDRAM packet memory is fixed at 64 MB.) SDRAM memory stores
packets received or sent from network interfaces, routing tables, and network accounting
applications. The two independent SDRAM memory arrays allow concurrent access by interfaces
and the processor. For information about accessing the SDRAM memory modules, refer to the
“Upgrading the SDRAM Memory Modules” section on page 6-11.
The network processor card contains two SDRAM slots for user-configurable system memory, DIMM 1
and DIMM 2. The amount of memory installed in slot DIMM 1 must be greater than or equal to the
memory installed in slot DIMM 2. Slot DIMM 2 is zero for the default memory configuration of
128 MB. Slot DIMM 0 is used only for packet memory and is fixed at 64 MB in the factory.
•
Cache memory—Cisco uBR7100 series routers have two levels of cache: a primary cache that is
internal to the microprocessor and a secondary, 2-MB (fixed) external cache that provides additional
high-speed storage for data and instructions.
