Summary of Common Switch Features
Full-Duplex Support
Extreme Networks switches provide full-duplex support for all ports. This means that frames can be
transmitted and received simultaneously, which, in effect, doubles the bandwidth that is available on a
link. Most ports on an Extreme Networks switch autonegotiate for half-duplex or full-duplex operation.
Gigabit Ethernet and 100BASE-FX ports operate in full-duplex mode only in accordance with technical
standards.
Management Ports
The 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet management port allows you to communicate directly to the CPU of the
switch. You can plug an Ethernet cable directly from your laptop into the management port. This
provides you with direct access into the switch and allows you to view and locally manage the switch
configurations.
Do not assign an in-band IP address to the management port VLAN. The management port VLAN is an
out-of-band VLAN, so if it is assigned an in-band IP address (an address where the source and
destination are in the same subnet), the switch will treat it as a normal VLAN and attempt to route
traffic through it.
The management port is located on the following Extreme Networks devices:
• Summit5i—The management port is located on the back side of the switch
• Summit7i—The management port is located on the front side of the switch
• Alpine—Switch Management Module (SMMi) for the Alpine series switch
• BlackDiamond—Management Switch Fabric Module (MSM64i) for the BlackDiamond series switch
Extreme Networks does not recommend that you use the management port to route traffic to any front
panel port on the switch. The management port is designed for switch management purposes.
Mini-GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
The Summit24e3 and Summit48si switches support the small form pluggable (SFP) GBIC, also known as
the mini-GBIC. The switch identifies the type of mini-GBIC that is installed and verifies that the
mini-GBIC is an Extreme Networks-certified mini-GBIC.
Mini-GBIC Types and Specifications
There are two types of mini-GBIC interfaces:
• SX mini-GBIC, which conforms to the 1000BASE-SX standard
• LX mini-GBIC, which conforms to the 1000BASE-LX standard
Use only Extreme Networks-certified mini-GBICs, available from Extreme Networks, into the
mini-GBIC port in the switch.

Total optical system budget for the SX mini-GBIC is 11.5 dBm. Extreme Networks recommends that 3
dBm of the total budget be reserved for losses induced by cable splices/connectors and operating
margin. While 8.5 dBm remains available for cable induced attenuation, the 1000BASE-SX standard
specifies supported distances of 275 meters over 62.5 micron multimode fiber and 550 meters over 50
micron multimode fiber. There is no minimum attenuation or minimum cable length restriction.

General
Total system budget
13.5 dBm
Total optical system budget for the LX mini-GBIC is 13.5 dBm. Measure cable plant losses with a 1310
nm light source and verify this to be within budget. When calculating the maximum distance attainable
using optical cable with a specified loss per kilometer (for example 0.25 dB/km) Extreme Networks
recommends that 3 dBm of the total budget be reserved for losses induced by cable splices/connectors
and operating margin. Thus, 10.5 dBm remains available for cable induced attenuation. There is no
minimum system budget or minimum cable length restriction because the maximum receive power is
the same as the maximum transmit power. There is no minimum attenuation or minimum cable length
restriction.

Summary of Common Switch Features
Safety Information
Before you begin the process of installing or replacing a mini-GBIC, read the safety information in this
section.
CAUTION
Mini-GBICs can emit invisible laser radiation. Avoid direct eye exposure to beam.
Mini-GBICs are class 1 laser devices, and they operate at 3.3 V. Use only Extreme Networks-certified
mini-GBIC devices.
If you see an amber blinking mini-GBIC port status LED after you install a mini-GBIC into the
Summit24e3 or Summit48si switch, this means the mini-GBIC is not certified by Extreme Networks. To
correct this problem, install an Extreme Networks-certified mini-GBIC, available from Extreme
Networks, into the port in the switch.
Preparing to Install or Replace a Mini-GBIC
To ensure proper installation, complete the following tasks before inserting the mini-GBIC:
1 Disable the port that is needed to install or replace the mini-GBIC.
2 Inspect and clean the fiber tips, coupler, and connectors.
3 Prepare and clean an external attenuator, if needed.
4 Do not stretch the fiber.
5 Make sure the bend radius of the fiber is not less than 2 inches (5.08 cm).
In addition to the previously described tasks, Extreme Networks recommends the following when
installing or replacing mini-GBICs on an active network:
1 Use the same type of mini-GBIC at each end of the link.
2 Connect one end of the link to the Tx port. Without an attenuator, measure the total loss from the Tx
port to the other site of the link. For example, the total loss must not exceed the total optical system
budget.
After you complete these described tasks, you are ready to install or replace a mini-GBIC.
Installing and Removing a Mini-GBIC
You can add and remove mini-GBICs from your Summit24e3 or Summit48si switch without powering
off the system. Figure 1 shows the two types of mini-GBIC connectors.

Mini-GBICs are Class 1 laser devices. Use only Extreme-approved devices.
NOTE
Remove the LC fiber-optic connector from the mini-GBIC prior to removing the mini-GBIC from the
switch.
CAUTION
Mini-GBICs can emit invisible laser radiation. Avoid direct eye exposure to beam.
If you see an amber blinking mini-GBIC port status LED after you install a mini-GBIC into the
Summit24e3 or Summit48si switch, this means the mini-GBIC is not certified by Extreme Networks. To
correct this problem, install an Extreme Networks-certified mini-GBIC, available from Extreme
Networks, into the port in the switch.
To remove the mini-GBIC connector labeled “Module A,” gently depress and hold the black plastic tab
at the bottom of the connector and pull the mini-GBIC out of the port on the switch.
To remove the mini-GBIC connector labeled “Module B,” gently lift down on the front handle and pull
the mini-GBIC out of the port on the switch.
To insert a mini-GBIC connector:
1 Holding the mini-GBIC by its sides, insert the mini-GBIC into the port on the switch.
2 Slide the mini-GBIC into the port, until you hear it click. If the mini-GBIC has a handle, push up on
the handle to secure the SX mini-GBIC.

Summary of Common Switch Features
GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
Most Extreme Networks switches support two types of GBICs: the Parallel ID GBIC and the Serial ID
GBIC. The switch can identify the media type for the GBIC that is installed. Initial ExtremeWare
software versions do not support Serial ID GBICs. If Serial ID GBICs are installed in a switch with an
initial software release, the switch will not bring up the link on GBIC ports.

Requirements for the UTP GBIC
The UTP GBIC operates in full-duplex mode only. The UTP GBIC does not operate in 10/100 Mbps
mode, and it does not support autonegotiation of link speed.
You need to disable autonegotiation on the ports that use the UTP GBIC and manually configure the
port speed to 1000 Mbps.
The following example disables autonegotiation, configures a port speed of 1000 Mbps, and specifies
full-duplex mode for port 4 on a stand-alone switch:
config ports 4 auto off speed 1000 duplex full
The following example disables autonegotiation, configures a port speed of 1000 Mbps, and specifies
full-duplex mode for port 1 on a G8Xi module located in slot 1 of a modular switch:
config ports 1:1 auto off speed 1000 duplex full
The UTP GBIC is supported on “i” series products only.
Long Range GBIC System Budgets
Measure cable plant losses with a 1550 nm light source and verify this to be within budget. When
calculating the maximum distance attainable, using optical cable with a specified loss per kilometer (for
example, 0.25 db/km), Extreme Networks recommends that 3 dB of the total budget be reserved for
losses induced by cable splices, connectors, and operating margin. Figure 2 shows the total optical
system budget between long range GBICs.
NOTE
The fiber loss budget plus all other penalties must not exceed the total optical system budget.

GBIC Type and Hardware/Software Support
Preparing to Install or Replace a GBIC
This section describes the preparation steps that you must perform before inserting and securing a
GBIC.
CAUTION
GBICs can emit invisible laser radiation. Avoid direct eye exposure to beam.
To ensure proper installation, complete the following tasks before inserting the GBIC:
1 Inspect and clean the fiber tips, coupler, and connectors.
2 Prepare and clean an external attenuator, if needed.
3 Calculate the link budget.
4 Do not stretch the fiber.
5 Make sure the bend radius of the fiber is not less than 2 inches.
In addition to the previously described tasks, Extreme Networks recommends the following when
installing or replacing GBICs on an active network:
1 Use the same type of GBIC at each end of the link.
2 Connect one end of the link to the Tx port. Without an attenuator, measure the total loss from the Tx
port to the other site of the link. For example, the total loss must not exceed the total optical system
budget listed in Figure 2.
3 Use dispersion shifted fiber whenever possible. This provides superior performance in the 1550 nm
range.
After you complete all of these described tasks, you are ready to install or replace a GBIC.
Installing or Replacing a GBIC
You can add and remove GBICs from your Extreme Networks switch without powering off the system.

Site Preparation
This chapter describes how to prepare your site for installing Extreme Networks equipment. It contains
information on environmental and cabling requirements, power requirements, and building and
electrical code organizations.
This chapter includes these sections:
• Planning Your Site on page 42
• Meeting Site Requirements on page 42
• Evaluating and Meeting Cable Requirements on page 53
• Meeting Power Requirements on page 58
• Applicable Industry Standards on page 61
The requirements described in this chapter are intended for the system administrator, network
equipment technician, or network manager who is responsible for installing and managing the network
hardware. It assumes a working knowledge of local area network (LAN) operations, and a familiarity
with communications protocols that are used on interconnected LANs. Installation, maintenance, and
removal of a switch, chassis, or its components must be done by qualified service personnel only.
Qualified service personnel have had appropriate technical training and experience that is necessary to
be aware of the hazards to which they are exposed when performing a task and of measures to
minimize the danger to themselves or other people.
By carefully planning your site, you can maximize the performance of your existing network and ensure
that it is ready to migrate to future networking technologies.
To learn more about safety issues and to ensure safety compliance, see Appendix A.
WARNING!

Site Preparation
Planning Your Site
To install your equipment successfully, you should plan your site carefully. The site planning process
has three major steps:
Step 1: Meeting Site Requirements
Your physical installation site must meet several requirements for a safe and successful installation:
• Building and electrical code requirements
• Environmental, safety, and thermal requirements for the equipment you plan to install
• Distribution rack requirements
Step 2: Evaluating and Meeting Cable Requirements
After examining your physical site and ensuring all environment requirements are met, you should
evaluate and compare your existing cable plant with the requirements of the Extreme Networks
equipment to determine if you need to install new cables (or cabling).
Step 3: Meeting Power Requirements
To run your equipment safely, you must meet the specific power requirements for the Extreme
Networks equipment that you plan to install.
NOTE
Review and follow the safety information before you install your equipment.
Meeting Site Requirements
This section addresses the various requirements to consider when preparing your installation site,
including:
• Operating Environment Requirements
• Rack Specifications and Recommendations
Operating Environment Requirements
You need to verify that your site meets all environmental and safety requirements.
Virtually all areas of the United States are regulated by building codes and standards. During the early
planning stages of installing or modifying your LAN, it is important that you develop a thorough
understanding of the regulations that pertain to your location and industry.
Building and Electrical Codes
Building and electrical codes vary depending on your location. Comply with all code specifications
when planning your site and installing cable. The following sections are provided as a resource to
obtain additional information.

cause static electricity.)
• Prevent unauthorized access to wiring closets by providing door locks. Install the equipment in a
secured, enclosed, and restricted-access area, ensuring that only qualified service personnel have
access to the equipment.
• Provide adequate overhead lighting for easy maintenance.
• Ensure that each wiring closet has a suitable ground. All distribution racks and equipment installed
in the closet should be grounded.
• Ensure that all system environmental requirements are met, such as ambient temperature and
humidity.
NOTE
Extreme Networks recommends that you consult an electrical contractor for commercial building and
wiring specifications.
44
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Meeting Site Requirements
Temperature. Extreme Networks equipment generates a significant amount of heat. It is essential that
you provide a temperature-controlled environment for both performance and safety.
Install the equipment only in a temperature- and humidity-controlled indoor area that is free of airborne
materials that can conduct electricity. Too much humidity can cause a fire. Too little humidity can
produce electrical shock and fire.
The following are some general thermal recommendations for your wiring closet:
• Ensure that the ventilation in the wiring closet is adequate to maintain a temperature below 104° F
(40° C).
• Install a reliable air conditioning and ventilation system.
• Keep the ventilation in the wiring closet running during nonbusiness hours; otherwise, the
equipment can overheat.
• Maintain ambient operating temperature: 32° to 104° F (0° to 40° C)
• Maintain storage Temperature: -40° to 158° F (-40° to 70° C)
NOTE
Like all electrical equipment, product lifetimes degrade with increased temperature. If possible,
temperatures should be kept at approximately 78° F (25° C) or lower.
BlackDiamond 6816 Spacing Requirements. Due to chassis-to-chassis heating, Extreme Networks
recommends placing no more than three BlackDiamond 6816 chassis next to each other.
The following are some general recommendations for installing your BlackDiamond 6816 chassis:
• A minimum of 17.32 inches (44 cm) between each set of three BlackDiamond 6816 chassis.
Or
• Place front-back cooled equipment, such as a BlackDiamond 6808 chassis, between each set of three
BlackDiamond 6816 chassis.
Or
• Place patch panels, which are used to patch cables together, between each set of three BlackDiamond
6816 chassis. A patch panel does not require any power and does not generate any heat.
NOTE
Up to five adjacent BlackDiamond 6816 chassis will continue to function without safety concerns.
However, product lifetime may degrade with continued exposure to high temperatures in close proximity
and long term reliability may be compromised.
Airflow Requirements. To ensure proper airflow through an Extreme Networks switch, refer to the
following recommendations when you are installing your switch:
• The Summit family of switches require 3 inches (7.62 cm) on both the left and right sides of the
switch (5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper airflow.
• The Alpine 3800 series chassis require 3 inches (7.62 cm) on both the left and right sides of the switch
(5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper airflow.
• The BlackDiamond 6816 and 6804 chassis require 3 inches (7.62 cm) around the entire chassis—front,
rear, and sides—(5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper airflow.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
45
Site Preparation
• The BlackDiamond 6808 chassis requires 3 inches (7.62 cm) around both the front and rear of the
chassis (5 inches (12.7 cm) recommended) for proper airflow.
The airflow of the Summit family of switches moves from the left side of the switch to the right side of
the switch, or from the right side of the switch to the left side of the switch depending on the model.
The airflow of the Alpine 3808 moves through the power supplies and is independent of the airflow
through the chassis as shown in Figure 4. For example, if the power supply fans fail, the airflow
through the module area of the chassis will not cool down the power supplies.
• Airflow for cooling power supplies enters the top of the chassis and moves left to right as you face
the chassis.
• Airflow for cooling modules moves left to right as you face the chassis.

Humidity. Operating humidity should be kept between 10 and 95% relative humidity (noncondensing).
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
Your system must be protected from static electricity. Take the following measures to ensure optimum
system performance:
• Keep relative humidity at 50 to 70%.
• Remove materials that can cause electrostatic generation (such as synthetic resins) from the wiring
closet. Check the appropriateness of floor mats and flooring.
• Connect conductors (metals, etc.) to ground, using dedicated grounding lines.
• Use electrostatically safe equipment and the ESD straps that are provided with your equipment. All
Alpine and BlackDiamond switches come with ESD wrist strap connectors and wrist straps as
shown in Figure 10.

Rack Specifications and Recommendations
Racks should conform to conventional standards. In the United States, use EIA Standard RS-310C:
Racks, Panels, and Associated Equipment. In countries other than the United States, use IEC Standard
297. In addition, verify that your rack meets the basic mechanical and space requirements that are
described in this section.
Mechanical Recommendations for the Rack
Use distribution racks that meet the following mechanical recommendations:
• Use an open style, 19-inch (48.26 cm) rack to facilitate easy maintenance and to provide proper
ventilation.
• The rack should use the universal mounting rail hole pattern that is identified in IEC Standard 297.
• The mounting holes should be flush with the rails to accommodate the chassis.
• Use a rack made of steel or aluminum.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
51
Site Preparation
• Install equipment into the lower half of the rack first to avoid making the rack top-heavy.
• The rack should support approximately 600 pounds (272 kilograms).
Protective Grounding for the Rack
Use a rack grounding kit and a ground conductor that is carried back to earth or to another suitable
building ground.
All Extreme Networks switches are designed with mounting brackets that provide solid metal-to-metal
connection to the rack. If you do not use equipment racks, you can attach wiring terminals directly to
the mounting brackets for appropriate grounding. Alpine products have grounding terminals that are
mounted on the back of the chassis.
At minimum, follow these guidelines:
• Ground equipment racks to earth ground.
— CAD weld appropriate wire terminals to building I-beams or earth ground rods.
— Use #4 copper wire.
— Drill and tap wire terminals to equipment racks.
— Position the earth ground as close to the equipment rack as possible to maintain the shortest
wiring distance possible.
— Properly test the quality of the earth ground.
NOTE
Because building codes vary worldwide, Extreme Networks strongly recommends that you consult an
electrical contractor to ensure proper equipment grounding is in place for your specific installation.
• Ground DC power supplies to earth ground by using the grounding terminals provided.
Space Requirements for the Rack
Provide enough space in front of and behind the switch so that you can service it easily. Allow a
minimum of 48 inches (122 cm) in front of the rack and 24 inches (61 cm) behind the rack. When using a
relay rack, provide a minimum of 24 inches (61 cm) of space behind the mounted equipment. Extra
room on each side is optional.
NOTE
Install your equipment rack near an easily accessible power outlet. When you need to disconnect the
power cable from your switch, remove it first from the power source and then from the switch.
Securing the Rack
The rack should be attached to the wiring closet floor with 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) lag screws or equivalent
hardware. The floor under the rack should be level within 3/16 inch
(5 mm). Use a floor-leveling cement compound if necessary or bolt the racks to the floor as shown in
Figure 11.

Evaluating and Meeting Cable Requirements
This section addresses requirements for the that cable you should use when installing your network
equipment. It includes:
• Cabling Standards
• Cable Labeling and Record Keeping
• Installing Cable
• RJ-45 Connector Jackets
• Radio Frequency Interference
Cabling Standards
We recommend using the BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Service International) RCDD (Registered
Communications Distribution Designer), which is globally recognized as a standard in site planning and
cabling. For information, go to http://www.bicsi.org
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
53
Site Preparation
Cable Labeling and Record Keeping
A reliable cable labeling system is essential when planning and installing a network. Maintaining
accurate records helps you to:
• Relocate devices easily.
• Make changes quickly.
• Isolate faults in the distribution system.
• Locate the opposite end of any cable.
• Know the types of network devices that your cabling infrastructure can support.
Consider the following recommendations when setting up a cable labeling system suitable for your
installation:
• Identify cables by securely attaching a label to all cable ends.
• Assign a unique block of sequential numbers to the group of cables that run between each pair of
wiring closets.
• Assign a unique identification number to each distribution rack.
• Identify all wiring closets by labeling the front panel of your Extreme Networks equipment and
other hardware.
• Keep accurate and current cable identification records.
• Post records near each distribution rack. Include the following cable drop information: the cable
source, destination, and jumper location.
Installing Cable
Consider the following recommendations when you connect cable to your network equipment:
• Examine cable for cuts, bends, and nicks.
• Support cable using a cable manager that is mounted above connectors to avoid unnecessary weight
on the cable bundles.
• Use cable managers to route cable bundles to the left and right of the network equipment to
maximize accessibility to the connectors.
• Provide enough slack—approximately 2 to 3 inches (5.08-7.62 cm)— to provide proper strain relief as
shown in Figure 12.
• Bundle cable using velcro straps to avoid injuring cables.
• If you build your own cable, ensure that cable is properly crimped.
• When installing a patch panel using twisted pair wiring, untwist no more than 1 inch (2.54 cm) of
the cable to avoid RF interference.
• When required for safety and fire rating requirements, use plenum-rated cable. See your local
building codes for determining when it is appropriate to use plenum-rated cable, or refer to IEC
standard 850.
• Keep all ports and connectors free of dust.
54
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Evaluating and Meeting Cable Requirements
NOTE
Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable can build up ESD charges when being pulled into a new
installation. Before installing category 5 UTP cables, discharge ESD from the cable by plugging it into a
port on a switch or any network device that is not powered on.

Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cable must be treated gently during installation. Every cable has a minimum bend radius, for
example, and fibers will be damaged if the cables are bent too sharply. It is also important not to stretch
the cable during installation. We recommend that the bend radius for fiber optic cable equals 2-inch
(5.08 cm) minimum for each 90 degree turn as shown in Figure 13.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
55
Site Preparation
NOTE
Kinks and sharp bends can destroy or impair the cable’s ability to convey light pulses accurately from
one end of the cable to the other. Use care in dressing the optical-fiber cables: provide satisfactory
strain relief to support the cable and maintain an adequate bend radius at all cable turns, particularly
where the cable connects to the I/O module.

RJ-45 Connector Jackets
Use RJ-45 cable with connector jackets that are flush with the connector or that have connectors with a
no-snag feature.
Using cable with jackets that are wider than the connectors can cause:
• Connectors that are not properly aligned with the port.
• Crowded cable installation, which can cause connectors to pop out of the port.
Figure 14 shows examples of connector jacket types that are not recommended as well as those that are
recommended.

Radio Frequency Interference
If you use unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cabling in an installation, take precautions to avoid radio
frequency (RF) interference. RF interference can cause degradation of signal quality, and, in an Ethernet
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
57
Site Preparation
network environment, can cause excessive collisions, loss of link status, or other physical layer problems
that can lead to poor performance or loss of communication.
To prevent RF interference, avoid the following devices or situations:
• Attaching UTP cable to AC power cables
• Routing UTP cable near antennas, such as a Ham radio antenna
• Routing UTP cable near equipment that could exhibit RF interference, such as:
— ARC welding equipment
— Electrical motors that contain coils
— Air conditioner units
— Electrical transformers
In areas or applications where these situations cannot be avoided, use fiber optic cabling or shielded
twisted pair cabling (STP).
NOTE
Because harmonics can appear on the neutral line of a typical three-phase power circuit, Extreme
Networks recommends using a harmonics meter in new installations.
Making Network Interface Cable Connections
Use the appropriate type of cable to connect the ports of your switch to another switch or router.
Working carefully, one port at a time, follow these steps:
1 Verify that you have identified the correct cable for the port.
2 Use an alcohol wipe or other appropriate cleaning agent to clean the cable connectors; make sure
they are free of dust, oil, and other contaminants.
3 If you are using optical-fiber cable, align the transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) connectors with the
correct corresponding connectors on the switch or the I/O module.
On the ATM and PoS modules, the transmit (Tx) connector on each port is the top connector.
4 Press the cable connectors into their mating connectors on the switch or I/O module until the cable
connector is firmly seated.
5 Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the remaining cables on this or other switches or I/O modules.
6 Dress and secure the cable bundle to provide appropriate strain relief and protection against bends
and kinks.
Meeting Power Requirements
This section discusses power requirements, including:
• Power Supply Requirements
• AC Power Cable Requirements
• Uninterruptable Power Supply Requirements
58
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Meeting Power Requirements
For more information about the power specifications of the Extreme Networks family of switches, see
Appendix B, “Switch Technical Specifications” on page 297.
Power Supply Requirements
Adhere to the following requirements in order to operate your Extreme Networks equipment safely:
• Ensure that your equipment is placed in an area that accommodates the power consumption and
component heat dissipation specifications.
• Ensure that your power supply meets the site power, AC power, or DC power requirements of the
network equipment.
• Ensure that DC connections are made by an on-site electrician.
NOTE
For power specifications for Extreme Networks products, see the Extreme Networks website at
http://www.extremenetworks.com.
• When connecting power to installed equipment, avoid connecting through an extension cord or
power strip.
• If your switch includes more than one power supply, connect each power supply to different,
independent power sources. If a power source fails, it will only affect the switch power supply to
which it is connected. If all switch power supplies are connected to a single power source, the entire
switch is vulnerable to a power source failure.
AC Power Cable Requirements
Use an AC power cable appropriate for your country. Check your local electrical codes and regulatory
agencies for power cable requirements. The countries listed in Table 18 have the following additional
requirements:
Table 18: AC power cable requirements
Country
Requirements
USA and Canada
•
The cable set must be UL-approved and CSA-certified.
•
The minimum specification for the flexible cable is No. 18
AWG (1.5 mm 2), Type SVT or SJT, 3-conductor.
•
The cable set must have a rated current capacity of at least
the amount rated for each specific product.
•
The attachment plug must be an Earth-grounding type with
a NEMA 5-15P (10 A, 125 V) configuration.
Denmark
The supply plug must comply with section 107-2-D1, standard
DK2-1a or DK2-5a.
Switzerland
The supply plug must comply with SEV/ASE 1011.
Argentina
The supply plug must comply with Argentinian standards.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
59
Site Preparation
NOTE
When using dual power supplies, make sure that each AC power supply attaches to an independent
power source.
Replacing the Power Cable
If the power cable plug is unsuitable and must be replaced, connect the power supply wires for the
switch according to the following scheme:
• Brown wire to the Live (Line) plug terminal, which may be marked with the letter “L” or colored
red.
• Blue wire to the Neutral plug terminal, which may be marked with the letter “N” or colored black.
• Yellow/Green wire to the Ground plug terminal, which may be marked with the letter “E” (the
Earth symbol) or colored yellow/green.
Uninterruptable Power Supply Requirements
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that sits between a power supply (such as a wall
outlet) and a device (such as a switch) to prevent outages, sags, surges, and bad harmonics from
adversely affecting the performance of the device.
UPS Features
A UPS traditionally can perform the following functions:
• Absorb relatively small power surges.
• Smooth out noisy power sources.
• Continue to provide power to equipment during line sags.
• Provide power for some time after a blackout has occurred.
In addition, some UPS or UPS plus software combinations provide the following functions:
• Automatic shutdown of equipment during long power outages.
• Monitoring and logging of power supply status.
• Display the voltage (current draw) of the equipment.
• Restart equipment after a long power outage.
• Display the voltage currently on the line.
• Provide alarms on certain error conditions.
• Provide short circuit protection.
Selecting a UPS
To determine UPS requirements for your switch, ask these questions:
• What are the amperage requirements?
• What is the longest potential time period that the UPS would be required to supply backup power?
• Where will the UPS be installed?
• What is the maximum transition time that your installation will allow?
60
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Applicable Industry Standards
NOTE
Extreme Networks recommends that you use a UPS that provides online protection.
Calculating Amperage Requirements
To determine the size of UPS that you need, use the following procedure:
1 To find VA (Volt-Amps), locate the voltage and amperage requirements for each piece of equipment.
These numbers are usually located on a sticker on the back or bottom of your equipment. Then
multiply the numbers together to get VA:
VA = Volts x Amperes
2 Add the VA from each piece of equipment together to find the total VA requirement.
To determine the minimum amperage requirements for your UPS, we recommend that you add 30%
to the total.
UPS Transition Time
Transition time is the time that is necessary for the UPS to transfer from utility power to full-load
battery power. For Extreme Networks products, a transition time of less than 20 milliseconds is required
for optimum performance.
Applicable Industry Standards
For more information, see the following ANSI/TIA/EIA standards:
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A—discusses the six subsystems of a structured cabling system.
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-569-A—discusses design considerations.
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-606—discusses cabling system administration.
• ANSI/TIA/EIA-607—discusses commercial building grounding and bonding requirements.

Summit Switch Overview
Memory Requirements
Your “i” series Summit switch must have 128MB of DRAM in order to support the features in
ExtremeWare version 6.0 or later. This is not a requirement for Summit24 or Summit48 switch models. If
you have a Summit24 or Summit48 switch, it must have 32MB of DRAM to support the features in
ExtremeWare version 4.0.
To determine the memory size in your switch, use the following command:
show memory
For Summit switches running ExtremeWare 4.0 or later, the switch indicates the total DRAM size in
megabytes as part of the output. For Summit switches running ExtremeWare releases prior to 4.0, you
must calculate the memory by taking the sum of the bytes listed under current free and adding to it
the bytes listed under current alloc. If the sum is greater than 16,000,000, there is no need to upgrade
the memory on the switch. If this is not the case, please contact your supplier.
Port Connections
Summit switches use a combination of the following types of ports:
• 1000BASE-SX ports using 850 nm duplex SC connectors
• 1000BASE-LX ports using 1300 nm duplex SC connectors
• 1000BASE-LX ports using 1300 nm duplex LC connectors
• 1000BASE-SX ports using MT-RJ connectors
• 1000BASE-LX ports using MT-RJ connectors
• Modular 1000BASE-SX and 1000BASE-LX using Mini-Gigabit Interface Connectors (mini-GBICs)
• Modular 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-LX, 1000BASE-ZX, LX1001, and UTP2 using Gigabit Interface
Connectors (GBICs)
• 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX ports using RJ-45 connectors
• 100BASE-FX ports using 1300 nm duplex SC connectors
• 100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T ports using RJ-45 connectors

The Summit48si switch supports two hot-insert power supplies, shown in Figure 30, with one power
supply preinstalled at the factory. You can remove or install Summit48si power supplies—one at a
time—without interrupting operation, and each power supply has its own power socket, which allows
you to connect independent power sources for each power supply. One functioning power supply must
always be installed. Two power supplies operate in a load-sharing manner and increase the reliability of
the switch.

Power Sockets
The Alpine 3802 switch supports up to two AC power supplies. Each power supply has its own power
socket. When a second power supply is installed, both provide a redundant, load-shared power supply
to the Alpine 3802 switch. If one of the power supplies fails, the second power supply provides all
power and ensures uninterrupted network operation.
NOTE
Do not attempt to fix a failed power supply; power supplies are not user removable. Alpine 3802 switch
power supplies must be installed or removed by trained service personnel only. Contact Extreme
Networks Customer Support if you experience problems.
If you have one power supply installed in the Alpine 3802, it must be installed in the lower power

On/Off Switch
The Alpine 3802 switch supports two DC power supplies, and each power supply has its own on/off
switch. If you have both power supplies powered on, both provide a redundant, load-shared power
supply to the Alpine 3802 switch. If one of the power supplies fails, the second power supply provides
all power and ensures uninterrupted network operation. Connect each power supply to different,
independent power sources. If a power source fails, it will only affect the switch power supply to which
it is connected. If all switch power supplies are connected to a single power source, the entire switch is
vulnerable to a power source failure.
NOTE
Do not attempt to fix a failed power supply; power supplies are not user removable. Alpine 3802 switch
power supplies must be installed or removed by trained service personnel only. Contact Extreme
Networks Customer Support if you experience problems.
If you require DC power, you must have two DC power supplies installed in the chassis.
Alpine 3802 Software Enhancements
The Alpine 3802 incorporates software enhancements and new commands to assist you in
troubleshooting switch errors and configuring the switch. This section describes the added software
features.
New Error Messages
If you insert a module into the Alpine 3802 that is not allowed in a particular slot, the switch logs the
error to the syslog. For example, if you insert a GM-WDMi module in slot 3, the switch logs an error.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
133
Alpine 3800 Series Switch Chassis
New Command
The Alpine 3802 has three modes of switch operation. You can use the configure switch {auto |
extended | standard} command to configure the switch to operate in a specific mode. By default, the
switch operates in auto mode.
The three modes of switch operation are:
• Extended mode—Slot 1 supports all existing Alpine modules: Alpine Ethernet I/O modules (green
stripe) and Alpine Access I/O modules (silver stripe). Slots 2 and 3 support only Alpine Access I/O
modules (silver stripe).
The Extended Mode LED lights when the switch is in extended mode.
• Standard mode—In standard mode, only slots 1 and 2 are enabled. Slot 3 is disabled. Slots 1 and 2
support all existing Alpine I/O modules: Alpine Ethernet I/O modules (green stripe) and Alpine
Access I/O modules (silver stripe).
The Standard Mode LED lights when the switch is in standard mode.
• Auto mode—In auto mode, the switch determines if it is in standard or extended mode depending
on the type of modules installed in the chassis or the slot preconfigurations. If an Alpine I/O
module with a green stripe (for example, an FM-32Ti module) is installed or preconfigured in slot 2,
the switch operates in standard mode. If an Alpine I/O module with a silver stripe (for example, a
WM-4Ti module) is installed or preconfigured in slots 2 or 3, the switch operates in extended mode.
Updated Commands
Two commands have been updated to reflect Alpine 3802 specific information and configurations: show
switch and show version.
Use the show switch command to display the current switch information, including the mode of
switch operation.
Use the show version command to display hardware and software versions currently running on the
switch as well as the riser card serial number (the riser card supports connection to the I/O slots).

NOTE
Read the information in this chapter thoroughly before you attempt to install, remove, or supply power to
any Alpine power supply.
The Alpine 3800 series chassis accommodates two power supplies: AC and DC. If two power supplies
are installed in the switch, both installed power supplies must be of the same type. The AC power
supplies auto-sense for 110 VAC and 220 VAC power. The DC power supplies require -48 VDC nominal
input line voltage. When two power supplies are present, the power is load-shared between the
supplies for enhanced longevity.
The power supplies for the Alpine 3808 are inserted into the front of the chassis. The power supplies for
the Alpine 3804 are inserted into the lower rear of the chassis. The Alpine 3802 power supplies are
preinstalled at the factory and are not user-removable. Table 37 describes the supported power supplies
for the Alpine 3800 series switch.

10 Alpine 3800 Series I/O Modules
This chapter describes:
• Configuring I/O Modules on page 161
• Installing I/O Modules on page 177
• Removing I/O Modules on page 179
NOTE
Read the information in this chapter thoroughly before you attempt to install or remove any Alpine I/O
modules.
Alpine I/O modules consist of a printed circuit board mounted on a metal panel that acts as the
insertion vehicle in an Alpine 3800 series switch. The module carrier also includes ejector/injector levers
and captive retaining screws at each end of the module front panel.
For more information about Alpine I/O module specifications, see Appendix C, “Module Technical
Specifications.”
Configuring I/O Modules
No configuration information is stored on the I/O modules; configuration information is stored on the
SMMi for the Alpine 3808 and 3804 chassis and the integrated Switch Management Module in the
Alpine 3802 chassis.
NOTE
There is a slight difference in appearance between Alpine I/O modules. Alpine Ethernet I/O modules
have a green stripe along the side of the module. Alpine Access I/O modules have a silver stripe along
the side of the module.
When the Alpine 3800 series switch is powered on, ExtremeWare generates a default configuration for
any slots with I/O modules. The default configuration allows the I/O module ports to participate in the
VLAN named default. The default configuration for the I/O module is not preserved unless you
explicitly save the information to nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM).
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
161
Alpine 3800 Series I/O Modules
You can configure parameters of the I/O module after it is installed or you can pre-configure a slot for a
certain type of module and configuration. The pre-configured information is applied to the module after
it is inserted. If you pre-configure a slot for a specific module type, and then insert a different type of
module, the module reverts to its default configuration.
NOTE
See the ExtremeWare Software User Guide and the ExtremeWare Command Reference Guide for more
information about configuring I/O modules.

Connecting the FM-8Vi Module to the Mogul-100
The FM-8Vi uses a single RJ-21 connector for the eight VDSL ports on the module. The cable connector
on the FM-8Vi has a Velcro™ strap to secure the connector on the cable to the module.
To deliver this VDSL connection to a subscriber, the bundle of twisted pairs that are contained in the
RJ-21 cable must be separated for connection to individual Mogul-100 customer premises equipment.
Typically, you connect the cable from the FM-8Vi to a punch-down block and wire the individual VDSL
circuits into RJ-11 jacks for connection to the Mogul-100s. Use the two center conductors of the RJ-11
connector to connect the wire pairs.
Your particular installation depends on the physical cabling in your building.
The connector on the FM-8Vi requires a male terminated RJ-21 cable. The FM-8Vi uses eight of the
twenty-five pairs in the cable. Because the RJ-21 standard was established for telecommunications, one
wire of each pair is designated as the tip side and the other wire is designated as the ring side.

LEDs
The FM-8Vi module has the following LEDs:
• Module status
• Port status
For information about the LEDs and their activity on the FM-8Vi module, see “I/O Module LEDs” on
page 176.
Software Requirements
The FM-8Vi module requires that the SMMi has ExtremeWare software version 6.1.5 or later and
BootROM 6.5 or later. For more information about software requirements and module configuration, see
the ExtremeWare Release Notes Software Version 6.1.5w2.01 Rev1. The FM-8Vi module also requires a
connection to the Mogul-100. For more information about Mogul-100 configuration, see the Mogul-100
Quick Guide.
Configuring the FM-8Vi. The VDSL connection from the FM-8Vi to the Mogul-100 is automatically
established by the hardware on the two devices. There are no commands to configure this VDSL
connection.
However, the VDSL ports on the FM-8Vi connect to the Mogul-100 in such a way that the Ethernet port
on the Mogul-100 behaves as though it is located on the Alpine switch. When you configure a port on
the FM-8Vi, you are configuring the Ethernet port on the Mogul-100. For example, when you add port 2
on the FM-8Vi to a VLAN, the Ethernet port on the Mogul-100 connected to port 2 of the FM-8Vi now
belongs to that VLAN.
The ports on the Mogul-100 that are controlled by the FM-8Vi accept configurations using the same
commands and procedures as the ports on the FM-32Ti and FM-24Fi modules, except that the ports can
only be configured for 10 Mbps.
The slot configuration command now includes a keyword to specify the FM-8Vi. To configure the slot
for the FM-8Vi, use the following command:
config slot <slot> module fm8v
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
173
Alpine 3800 Series I/O Modules
The following example configures slot 2 for the FM-8Vi module:
config slot 2 module fm8v
Displaying VDSL Statistics. For the FM-8Vi module, the show port command has been enhanced to
show VDSL statistics. To display VDSL statistics, use the following command:
show port <portlist> vdsl stats
The following command displays the VDSL statistics for ports 2:1 through 2:4:

Any unoccupied module slot in the chassis should have a blank faceplate installed to ensure
satisfactory protection from EMI and to guarantee adequate airflow through the chassis.
4 Grasp the module by its front panel with one hand, and place your other hand under the edge of the
metal panel. Check the connectors for dust and packing materials.
CAUTION
To prevent ESD damage, handle the module by the metal panel edges only. Never touch the
components on the PCB or pins on any of the connectors.
5 Ensure that the module is horizontal with the module name to the right, the PCB on top, and that
the ejector/injector levers are extended.
a Slide the module into the appropriate slot of the chassis (slots 1 through 8 in the Alpine 3808,
slots 1 through 4 in the Alpine 3804, or slots 1 through 3 in the Alpine 3802), until it makes
contact with the backplane.
NOTE
Use the metal panel, not the PCB, to guide the I/O module.
As the module begins to seat in the chassis, the ejector/injector levers begin to close.
b To close the ejector/injector levers, use both hands simultaneously to push the levers toward the
center of the module.
c
178
To secure the module, tighten the two captive screws using a #2 Phillips screwdriver.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Verifying the I/O Module Installation
NOTE
Tighten the screws of this module before you insert additional modules. Otherwise, you might unseat
modules that you have not secured.
6 Store the module packaging for future use.

need to handle ESD-sensitive components.
To install additional I/O modules, repeat steps 1 through 6.
Verifying the I/O Module Installation
After you install an I/O module, verify that it is working correctly. Check the LEDs on the front panel
of the I/O module and use the command-line interface (CLI) show slot <slot number> command to
display slot-specific information about the newly installed module.
LED Indicators
When the I/O module and its ports are configured and operating normally, the front-panel LED
indicators should appear as follows:
• STATUS LED—green
• DIAG LED (WM-4Ti module only)—off
• Port status LED (per port):
— Green (all modules except WM-4T1i)
— Alternating green and amber (WM-4Ti1 module only)
For more information about I/O module LED activity, see “I/O Module LEDs” on page 176.
Displaying Slot Status Information
Assuming the I/O module has no problems, the command show slot <slot> (where <slot> is the
number of the slot where you installed the module) displays information about the module including:
general information about the module (name, serial number, part number), the state of the module
(power down, operational, mismatch between the slot configuration and the module in the slot), and
the status of the ports on the module.
For more information about slot status information, see the ExtremeWare Software User Guide and the
ExtremeWare Command Reference Guide.

• One 20-slot chassis with backplane
• 16 I/O module slots, labeled slots 1 through 16
• Four MSM64i slots, labeled slots A through D
• Four power supply bays (accessed from the front of the unit)
• Two fan trays (accessed from the front of the unit)
• Two side mounted handles for lifting the chassis
• One electromagnetic discharge (ESD) wrist strap connector
NOTE
The BlackDiamond 6816 chassis only supports modules and power supplies with an “i” in their name,
such as the MSM64i.

• One 10-slot chassis with backplane
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
191
BlackDiamond 6800 Series Switch Overview
• Eight I/O module slots, labeled slots 1 through 8
• Two MSM64i slots, labeled slots A and B
• Two power supply bays (accessed from the front of the unit)
• One fan tray (accessed from the rear of the unit)
• One electromagnetic discharge (ESD) wrist strap connector
BlackDiamond 6804 Switch
The BlackDiamond 6804 switch consists of the following components:
• One 6-slot chassis with backplane
• Four I/O module slots, labeled slots 1 through 4
• Two MSM64i slots, labeled slots A and B
• Two power supply bays (accessed from the front of the unit)
• One fan tray (accessed from the front of the unit)
• One electromagnetic discharge (ESD) wrist strap connector
BlackDiamond Power Supplies
Three types of power supplies are available for the BlackDiamond switches:
• 220 VAC
• 110 VAC
• -48 VDC
All installed power supplies must be of the same type. You cannot mix 110 VAC, 220 VAC, and -48 VDC
power supplies in a single chassis.
All BlackDiamond power supplies are hot-swappable. They are also load-sharing. If one power supply
fails in a BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis, the remaining power supplies will provide sufficient power
to operate a chassis that has all slots populated with modules.
Switch Connectivity and the Backplane
Switch connectivity is an important aspect of the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch. The MSM64i
module is the internal switch fabric for data being sent between I/O modules. No configuration
information is stored on the I/O modules; all configuration information is stored on the MSM64i
module(s). Each MSM64i has two CPUs for protocol processing and network management. For full
redundancy, you can install up to four MSM64i modules in the BlackDiamond 6816 switch and up to
two MSM64i modules in the BlackDiamond 6808 and BlackDiamond 6804 switches.
The BlackDiamond 6800 series switch has a 100% passive backplane which means the backplane does
not contain any active components that can fail. A passive backplane is important because it increases
the reliability of the switch. The I/O modules treat the backplane as one logical connection and use the
same load sharing (trunking) algorithm as the front facing ports to distribute the switch traffic. There
are multiple Gigabit links from the I/O modules to the MSM64i modules, and most I/O modules have
eight full duplex Gigabit Ethernet links to the backplane that provide 16 bps full duplex bandwidth to
the backplane. If one of the backplane Gigabit Ethernet links fails, ExtremeWare reroutes the switch
traffic from the failed backplane Gigabit Ethernet link to another available backplane link. By moving to
another available backplane link, switch connectivity is not disrupted.
192
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Following Safety Information
With ExtremeWare 6.1 or later, you can configure the backplane load-sharing algorithm. The default
load-sharing algorithm uses ingress port-based trunking. In an Internet bridging or routing
environment, the address-based algorithm may be more appropriate. For more information about how
to configure the backplane load-sharing algorithm, see the ExtremeWare Software User Guide.
Packet Switching and Routing
Each installed I/O module has Gigabit Ethernet links that attach to the backplane. The backplane
divides these links equally among the MSM64i modules that are installed in the switch. For example, if
you install an F48Ti module, it has eight Gigabit Ethernet links to the switch backplane. If you have a
BlackDiamond 6816 and install four MSM64i modules, each module receives two of the eight Gigabit
Ethernet links. If you have a BlackDiamond 6808 or a BlackDiamond 6804 and install two MSM64i
modules, each module receives four of the eight Gigabit Ethernet links.
Following Safety Information
WARNING!
Read the safety information in Appendix A thoroughly before installing your Extreme Networks switch.
Failure to follow this safety information can lead to personal injury or damage to the equipment.
• All service to components of a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch should be performed by trained
service personnel only. Service personnel are persons having appropriate technical training and
experience necessary to be aware of the hazards to which they are exposed in performing a task and
of measures to minimize the danger to themselves or other persons.
NOTE
Electronic components are sensitive to static electricity. ESD originating from you or from objects
around you can damage these components. Exercise every possible precaution to prevent ESD
when working around printed circuit assemblies.
Keep all printed circuit assemblies in protective ESD-preventive sacks or place them on antistatic
mats until you are ready to install them. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap and ensure that the
leash is securely grounded before handling a bare printed circuit assembly.
• Some devices, such as I/O modules, contain fiber optic ports. To protect your eyes, you should never
look at the fiber optic ports while they are on, or look directly at the fiber cable ends when they are
on.

Power Supplies
This chapter describes:
• Installing a BlackDiamond 6800 Series Power Supply on page 215
• Removing a BlackDiamond 6800 Series Power Supply on page 221
NOTE
Read the information in this chapter thoroughly before you attempt to install, remove, or supply power to
any BlackDiamond power supply.
BlackDiamond power supplies are iPower power supplies. Three types of power supplies are available:
• 220 VAC
• 110 VAC
• -48 VDC
All installed power supplies must be of the same type. You cannot mix 110 VAC, 220 VAC, and -48 VDC
power supplies in a single chassis.
All BlackDiamond power supplies are fully fault-tolerant, hot-swappable, and they are load-sharing.
Depending upon the modules installed in the chassis, two power supplies can support a fully loaded
BlackDiamond 6816 chassis, and one power supply can support a fully loaded BlackDiamond 6808 or
BlackDiamond 6804 chassis. To increase switch reliability, you can install additional power supplies as
needed. If you have three or more power supplies installed in a BlackDiamond 6816 switch or two or
more power supplies installed in a BlackDiamond 6808 or BlackDiamond 6804 switch, you can remove
one of the power supplies without turning off power to the chassis.
Table 56 lists the minimum number of power supplies required to power up a BlackDiamond 6800
series chassis.

BlackDiamond 6800 Series Switch Power Supplies
NOTE
If you install four power supplies in your BlackDiamond 6816 chassis, the power supplies will deliver full
redundancy.
The BlackDiamond 6800 series switch generates SNMP traps for the following events:
• AC power source fails
• Power supply fails
• Power supply is removed
For more information about planning your site and power requirements, see “Meeting Power
Requirements” in Chapter 2. For more information about the specifications of the BlackDiamond 6800
series switch power supplies, see Table 84 on page 304.
220 VAC Power Supplies
If you install a 220 VAC power supply into the BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis, 220 Volts of power is
required for full operation. If 110VAC power is supplied, some BlackDiamond I/O modules might not
power up. The MSM64i performs power calculations and powers up the maximum number of I/O
modules from left (slot 1) to right (slot 8) in the BlackDiamond 6808, or top (slot 1) to bottom (slot 4 in
the BlackDiamond 6804 and slot 16 in the BlackDiamond 6816). A module is skipped if that module is
not within the power budget. Using 110 VAC, only eight modules in the BlackDiamond 6816, four
modules in the BlackDiamond 6808, and two modules in the BlackDiamond 6804 are powered on.
The BlackDiamond switch does not support installing a combination of the old 220 VAC PSUs (part
number 50012) with the new iPower 220 VAC PSUs (part number 50021) in the same chassis.
The 220 VAC power supply ships with one L6-20P (locking) power cable.
220 VAC power supplies slide in from the front of the chassis, as illustrated in Figure 99.

DC Power Supplies
The DC inputs are located on the front of the power supply. Each set of power terminals on the DC
power supply consists of two 6-mm, metric-threaded, nickel-plated, brass studs that are centered 0.625
inch (15.86 mm) apart. The earth ground studs extend 0.52 inch (13.2 mm) above the power supply
faceplate; the set of positive (+) and negative (–) studs extend 0.9 inch (22.9 mm) above the faceplate.
The nickel plating on the studs enhances conductivity and resists corrosion. The input terminals are
isolated from the ground terminals. The BlackDiamond DC power supplies operate with DC input that
can range from -42 to -70 V. Each DC power supply requires a dedicated 60 A service.
The DC power supply ships with the input lugs attached to the power supply, and the power supplies
slide in from the front of the chassis, as illustrated in Figure 101.
For centralized DC power connections, install only in a restricted access area.

Selecting the DC Cabling
Use the following guidelines when selecting cabling for the DC power supplies:
• Each DC power supply requires dedicated 55 A service.
• For DC power cables, use 4 AWG, high-strand-count copper wire cable.
Preparing the DC Cabling
Use the following guidelines when preparing cabling for the DC power supplies:
• Each DC power supply requires dedicated 60 A service.
• For DC power cables, use 4 AWG, high-strand-count copper wire cable with dual hole lugs that fit
over M6 (metric) terminals that are centered 0.625 inch (15.86 mm) apart.
• For convenience, the lock washers and nuts that you use to connect the source DC cables to the
power terminals are loosely mounted on the studs of the DC power supply.
NOTE
Add a length of heat-shrink tubing to prevent the crimp area on the lug from coming into contact with
the metal faceplate of the DC power supply.

corrosion.
For convenience, the lock washers and nuts for connecting the source DC cables to the power terminals
are loosely mounted on the studs ready for use.
Verifying a Successful Installation
After you supply power to the BlackDiamond switch, each MSM64i performs a POST of its circuitry.
The LED labeled “SYS” on the MSM64i blinks amber during the POST. After the MSM64i has passed its
POST and is operational, each I/O module performs its own POST.
NOTE
See Chapter 15, “BlackDiamond 6800 Series Management Switch Module” for more information about
switch management module LED activity and Chapter 16, “BlackDiamond 6800 Series I/O Modules” for
more information about I/O module LED activity.
Removing a BlackDiamond 6800 Series Power Supply
BlackDiamond 6800 series power supplies are hot-swappable. You can add or remove power supplies
without turning off power to the chassis and normal operation will continue was long as the switch has
enough power to support the installed modules. If you have three or more power supplies installed in a
BlackDiamond 6818 or two or more power supplies installed in a BlackDiamond 6808 or BlackDiamond
6804, you can remove one of them without turning off power to the chassis.

Management Switch Module
This chapter describes:
• Installing MSM64i Modules on page 229
• Removing MSM64i Modules on page 232
NOTE
Read the information in this chapter thoroughly before you attempt to install or remove the
BlackDiamond Management Switch Fabric Module (MSM64i).
The Management Switch Fabric Module (MSM64i) is the internal switch fabric for data that is being sent
between I/O modules. One MSM64i is required for switch operation; however, adding more MSM64i
modules increases both reliability and throughput. Each MSM64i has two CPUs for protocol processing
and network management. For full redundancy, you can install up to four MSM64i modules in the
BlackDiamond 6816 switch and up to two MSM64i modules in the BlackDiamond 6808 or
BlackDiamond 6804 switch. With full redundancy, the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch is a fully
nonblocking switch.
Table 61 shows that packet throughput between I/O modules increases when additional MSM64i
modules are installed.

The MSM64i module consists of a printed circuit board mounted on a metal panel that acts as the
insertion vehicle in a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch. The module carrier also includes
ejector/injector levers and captive retaining screws at each end of the module front panel.
The MSM64i has the following ports:
• Console port—Used to connect a terminal and perform local management.
• Management port—Used to connect an Ethernet cable directly from your laptop into the
management port to view and locally manage the switch configurations.
• Modem port—Used to connect a modem for remote access to the CLI.
• PCMCIA slot—Reserved for future use.
See Chapter 1, “Summary of Common Switch Features” for more information about management ports,
and for more information about BlackDiamond MSM64i module specifications, see Appendix C,
“Module Technical Specifications.”
MSM64i Activity
The BlackDiamond 6800 series switch can run with a single MSM64i installed. When you install
additional MSM64i modules, one of the MSM64i modules operates as the master, and the others become
the slaves.
The master MSM64i is responsible for upper-layer protocol processing and system management
functions. For example, OSPF computation and SNMP functions are performed by the master MSM64i.
Packet handling is distributed among the CPUs of all installed MSM64i modules.
When you save the switch configuration, it is saved to all MSM64i modules. If you download a new
ExtremeWare image, the image is downloaded to all MSM64i modules.
226
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Selection of the master MSM64i occurs automatically. The following scenarios describe the selection
process:
• When the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch boots with one or more MSM64i modules already
installed, and an MSM64i module is installed in slot A, the MSM64i in slot A becomes the master.
• When the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch boots with a single MSM64i (regardless of the slot
position), it is selected as the master. If additional MSM64i modules are added to the switch after
powered on, the added MSM64i modules become the slaves. MSM64i modules that operate as slaves
can be inserted and removed without disrupting network services.
• If you remove the master MSM64i while the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch is operating, the slave
MSM64i experiences a soft reset and then becomes the master MSM64i. For example, if you have a
BlackDiamond 6816 switch with a master MSM64i in slot A and slave MSM64i modules in slots B
through D, and you remove the master MSM64i from slot A, the slave in slot B becomes the master.
Later, if you need to remove the master MSM64i from slot B, the slave in slot C becomes the master.
MSM64i Memory
The MSM64i has two 144-pin SODIMM sockets and ships with two 128 MB SODRAM modules
installed, as shown in Figure 113.
NOTE
The MSM64i supports only SODIMMs supplied by Extreme Networks.
50015
Figure 113: MSM64i SODIMM sockets

This chapter describes:
• Configuring I/O Modules on page 235
• Installing I/O Modules on page 272
• Removing I/O Modules on page 275
NOTE
Read the information in this chapter thoroughly before you attempt to install or remove any
BlackDiamond I/O modules.
BlackDiamond I/O modules consist of a printed circuit board mounted on a metal panel that acts as the
insertion vehicle in a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch. The module carrier also includes
ejector/injector levers and captive retaining screws at each end of the module front panel.
For more information about BlackDiamond I/O module specifications, see Appendix C, “Module
Technical Specifications.”
Configuring I/O Modules
No configuration information is stored on the I/O modules; all configuration information is stored on
the MSM64i module(s).
When the BlackDiamond 6800 series switch is powered on, ExtremeWare generates a default
configuration for any slots that contain I/O modules. The default configuration allows the I/O module
ports to participate in the VLAN named default. The default configuration for the I/O module is not
preserved unless you explicitly save the configuration to nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM).
You can configure parameters of the I/O module after it is installed or you can pre-configure a slot for a
certain type of module and configuration. The pre-configured information is applied to the module after
it is inserted. If you pre-configure a slot for a specific module type, and then insert a different type of
module, the module reverts to its default configuration.

BD_WDMi
The WDMi module has one 10 Gbps port, which supports eight full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet channels.
The port transmits over a pair of single mode fiber cables using wavelength division multiplexing. The
port uses an SC-APC duplex connector with a spring-loaded safety cover. APC connectors are polished
at an 8° angle to minimize loss and reflections over extended transmit distances.
The default configuration of the WDMi module is as follows. The port:
• Is added to the default VLAN as untagged.
• Inherits the properties of the default VLAN (protocol type, VLANid, and so forth).
The WDMi module transmits bi-directionally on both fiber cables and then multiplexes these
wavelengths over the single-mode optical fiber.

The 10GLRi module has one 10GBASE-LR port that supports single-mode fiber using standard SC
connectors. The module has the bandwidth to blow through any bottleneck and has bandwidth
management, traffic shaping, and policy-based QoS capabilities. The module is a single slot I/O module
for the BlackDiamond 6808 chassis. No chassis upgrade is required, and the MSM64i modules support
the 10GLRi module.
The default configuration of the module is as follows. All ports:
• Are added to the default VLAN as untagged.
• Inherit the properties of the default VLAN (protocol type, VLANid, and so forth).
• Operate in auto-negotiation mode.
When you install the fiber-optic cable using the SC connectors, be sure you hear a “click” as the cable is
installed. This sound ensures that you have properly seated the connector and that it is completely
latched in the port. If the cable is not fully inserted in the port, the link my have many errors and my
not come up properly. You must use single-mode fiber-optic cable.

The P3cSi and P3cMi, Packet over SONET (PoS), modules each have four OC-3 ports that use duplex SC
connectors. The P12cSi and P12cMi PoS modules each have two OC-12 ports that use duplex SC
connectors. The P3cSi and the P12cSi modules support single mode fiber-optic cable only, and the P3cMi
and the P12cMi modules support multimode fiber-optic cable only. These modules connect the switch to
a SONET infrastructure that is used by metropolitan area service providers and operators of server
co-location networks.
250
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Configuring I/O Modules
In the first application, the metropolitan area network service provider can build service network sites
in various cities, then use PoS modules in a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch to connect those cities to a
carrier’s SONET infrastructure.
In the second application, operators of server co-location networks can use PoS modules in
BlackDiamond 6800 series switches to create a SONET-based connection between server co-location
sites. The result is that their network is simpler to manage, and problems can be isolated and resolved
more expediently.
Extreme Networks offers the PoS module in the following configurations:
• P3cMi: four OC-3 multimode, short-reach optical interfaces
• P3cSi: four OC-3 single-mode, intermediate-reach optical interfaces
• P12cMi: two OC-12 multimode, short-reach optical interfaces
• P12cSi: two OC-12 single-mode, intermediate-reach optical interfaces
NOTE
The “c” in the names of the modules indicates that the optical interfaces on these modules operate in
concatenated mode, which enables all the bandwidth to be devoted to a single payload stream.
NOTE
PoS modules are a Class 1 laser device.
The default configuration of the P3cSi, P3cMi, P12cSi, and P12cMi modules is as follows:
• Are added to the default VLAN as untagged. For P3c modules, only ports 1 and 3 are added to the
default VLAN. Ports 2 and 4 are not added to any VLAN.
• Inherit the properties of the default VLAN (VLANid and so forth).

Physical Description
This section describes the components and the LEDs of the PoS module, as shown in Figure 129.
The PoS module has the following key components:
• Two high-performance network processors
• A General Purpose Processor (GPP) subsystem
The network processors are programmable devices that participate with the Extreme “i” chipset to
support expanded functionality, features, and flexibility.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
251
BlackDiamond 6800 Series I/O Modules
The GPP subsystem handles system control and I/O module management functions. The GPP
subsystem resides outside of the I/O module data path to optimize performance.
PoS Module LED Indicators. The PoS modules are equipped with two module-level LED indicators
(STATUS and DIAG) and one port-level LED indicator for each network interface port on the PoS
module as shown in Figure 129.
• STATUS LED—Located near the top end of the PoS module front panel, near the ejector/injector
handle. This LED indicator is a bi-color LED (displaying in either green or amber) that signals the
operating status of the module as a whole.
• DIAG LED—Located beside the STATUS LED. This LED is a single-color LED (displaying in amber
only) that flashes amber when diagnostics are running on the module, and is solid amber if the
module fails the diagnostics.
• Port-level LED—Located next to the port number identifying each fiber optic network interface
connector on the front panel of the module. The port LED is a bi-color LED (displaying in either
green or amber) that signals the operating status of that network interface port.
NOTE
During the PoS module boot up, the Status and Diag LEDs may be incorrectly lit to solid green or solid
amber. The LEDs reflect their true state after approximately 30 seconds when the module has
completed its boot cycle.
For more information on PoS module LED activity, see “I/O Module LEDs” on page 271.
Service Ports. The PoS modules are equipped with two front-panel service ports: one port is a
subminiature DB-9 connector; the other is a micro HD-15 connector (see Figure 129). Both ports are
reserved for use only by Extreme Networks technical support personnel for diagnostic purposes.

SONET and SDH. SONET and SDH are the two terms used to identify a time division multiplexing
technology that is optimized for transporting voice traffic across a digital optical network, but that is
also capable of providing high-speed capacity for transporting data.
The term SONET is used to identify the technology used within the North American digital network. Its
standards are published by Bellcore and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The term
SDH is used to identify the equivalent standard approved by the International Telecommunication
Union (ITU) for use in Europe and elsewhere in the global digital network. Because SDH evolved out of
SONET, the two standards are closely joined and have been widely accepted as a dominant choice for
implementations requiring high transport capacity and resistance to failure.
PPP. PPP encompasses a suite of protocols designed to provide standard methods for transporting
datagrams over point-to-point links. The use of PPP over SONET links is commonly referred to as
Packet over SONET, or PoS. The Extreme Networks implementation of PPP for the PoS module
provides support for the following protocols in the PPP suite:
254
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Configuring I/O Modules
• Link Control Protocol (LCP)
• Link Quality Report (LQR) Protocol
• Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP)
• Password Authentication Protocol (PAP)
• IP Control Protocol (IPCP)
• Bridging Control Protocol (BCP)
• Extreme Discovery Protocol Control Protocol (EDPCP)
• Multi Protocol Label Switching Control Protocol (MPLSCP)
• OSI Network Layer Control Protocol (OSINLCP)
MPLS. The PoS module ports provide MPLS support via a PPP link. The MPLS Control Protocol
(MPLSCP) allows MPLS labeled packets to be transported across a PPP link.
Jumbo Frames. The PoS module ports provide jumbo frame support that is similar to that provided
by Ethernet ports on a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch.
Jumbo frames are Ethernet frames that are larger than 1522 bytes, including four bytes used for the
cyclic redundancy check (CRC). Extreme products that use the “i” chipset support switching and
routing of jumbo frames at wire-speed on all ports.
Jumbo frames are used between endstations that support larger frame sizes for more efficient transfers
of bulk data. Both endstations involved in the transfer must be capable of supporting jumbo frames.
QoS and Differentiated Services. The PoS modules support eight ingress queues and eight egress
queues per port. The scheduling parameters for these queues (minimum bandwidth, maximum
bandwidth, priority level, etc.) are controlled by QoS profiles that you can customize for individual
ingress or egress queues on a specific PoS port.
You can assign frames to queues based on IEEE 802.1p priorities, MPLS EXP values, Differentiated
Services Code Points (DSCPs), or by configuring a QoS profile for the port or VLAN. You can tailor the
DSCP-to-queue mapping for ingress or egress directions on a per-port basis. Most of the existing ingress
classification functions, along with the DiffServ replacement functions, are also supported for PoS ports.
The supported DiffServ functions maximize user flexibility while providing all of the features needed to
support the standard per-hop behaviors (PHBs), including:
• Default
• Class Selector
• Assured Forwarding
• Expedited Forwarding
The PoS modules also provide flexible support for the well-known Weighted RED (WRED) congestion
avoidance algorithm.
NetFlow Statistics. Each PoS port can maintain and export statistics for the flows that traverse the
associated SONET link.
Per-flow statistics are useful for many management purposes, including:
• Accounting and billing
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
255
BlackDiamond 6800 Series I/O Modules
• Network capacity planning and trend analysis
• Network monitoring
• Workload characterization
• User profiling
• Data warehousing and mining
Each PoS module can maintain two million flow records. Per-flow statistics are reported in the NetFlow,
Version 1 format, which groups flow records together into UDP datagrams for export to a flow-collector
device.
The PoS module also provides a NetFlow distribution feature to provide a growth path to more scalable
and robust collection architectures. This feature allows a single PoS port to distribute statistics across
multiple groups of flow-collector devices in a load-balanced manner. The function also includes a
health-check feature that significantly improves the reliability of the collection architecture. The
health-checker ensures that only responsive flow-collector devices are included in the effective export
distribution lists.
To further enhance scalability, the PoS module also offers filters and filter-based aggregation options
that allow you to configure a PoS port to maintain statistics selectively for only those flows matching
specified filters. The aggregation options can further reduce the volume of exported data by enabling a
single set of statistics to be maintained for all the flows that match an aggregation filter.
Automatic Protection Switching. Automatic Protection Switching, or APS, is a physical-layer
resiliency feature specified in the SONET standards. Multiplex Section Protection, or MSP, is the APS
equivalent in the SDH standard, which is also supported by the PoS module. Throughout this guide, the
terms APS and Automatic Protection Switching are used to refer to the protection switching features of
both standards.
Of the various protection switching modes specified in the SONET/SDH standards, the BlackDiamond
6800 series switches use the linear 1+1 architecture to protect tributary SONET lines. In the linear 1+1
architecture, there is one protection line for each working line. If the working line fails, traffic is
automatically switched to the protection line. You can also control whether traffic switched to the
protection line is automatically switched back to the working line when it is restored to service.
The Extreme Networks implementation supports network configurations where:
• Working and protection lines are terminated in the same PoS module.
• Working and protection lines are terminated in different PoS modules residing in the same
BlackDiamond 6800 series switch.
• Working and protection lines are terminated in different PoS modules residing in different
BlackDiamond 6800 series switches.
Service Provider Features
The PoS modules provide the following features for service provider environments:
• DSCP mapping
• VLAN ID (VID) tag mapping
• VLAN ID (VID) tag nesting
• Port tunneling
256
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Configuring I/O Modules
DSCP Mapping. You can use the diffserv dscp-mapping command to configure a mapped
relationship between an input DSCP and an associated output DSCP. Each PoS port supports three
DSCP mapping tables: one of the tables is used in the ingress direction; two are used for egress flows
(onto the SONET link). The two egress tables are for the congested and noncongested states, as
determined by the RED algorithm. If RED is not enabled on the PoS port, the egress congested-state
mapping table is not used.
In the ingress direction, the input DSCP of a packet received from the SONET link is replaced by an
output DSCP before the packet is forwarded. In the egress direction, the operation is similar, except that
the DSCP mapping occurs before the packet is transmitted onto the SONET link.
One potential use of the DSCP mapping capability is to reconcile varying DiffServ policies at the
boundary between autonomous systems, such as at the boundary between two ISPs. The availability of
different tables for the congested and noncongested states is useful in marking operations that increase
the probability of packets being dropped during times of congestion, as discussed in the DiffServ
Assured Forwarding RFC (RFC 2597).
VLAN ID (VID) Tag Mapping. An analogous feature has been added for managing 802.1Q tags. The
dot1q tagmapping command provides support for VLAN ID (VID) mapping tables. Each PoS port
supports two VID tables: one table is used in the ingress direction; the other is used in the egress
direction. Each of the tables enables an input VID to be mapped to an output VID. This feature is useful
in reconciling policy differences at the boundary between the customer and the service provider.
VLAN ID (VID) Tag Nesting. Another related enhancement provides support for nested 802.1Q tags by
allowing a tag push or tag pop attribute to be associated with a VID. The push attribute indicates that a
new tag is to be added to the frame, while the pop attribute indicates that the top-level tag is to be
removed from the frame. This capability is augmented by an option that allows the 802.1p priority of
the frame to be either preserved or set to a user-configurable value when a new tag is pushed. These
functions make it possible for service providers to tunnel customer-specific VLANs across a common
SONET backbone in a very simple manner.
Port Tunneling. The PoS module also supports port tunneling. Port tunneling can be used to
encapsulate and transport the raw High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) encapsulated byte stream
from one PoS port to another PoS port across an MPLS network. This allows service providers to tunnel
different types of SONET HDLC streams across a non-SONET backbone like Ethernet.
Software Requirements
The PoS modules require that you run ExtremeWare 7.0 or later on both the MSM64i module and the
PoS module, BootROM 7.8 for the MSM64i module, and BootROM 1.18 for the PoS module.
For more information about software requirements and PoS module configuration, see the ExtremeWare
Software User Guide and the ExtremeWare Command Reference Guide.
Hardware Requirements
The PoS modules are compatible with “i”series MSM modules only. For the most current list of I/O
modules supported for use with the PoS modules, consult your release notes.
PoS modules installed in a BlackDiamond chassis require at least one BlackDiamond Ethernet I/O
module also installed in the chassis in order to operate correctly.

The ARM is a self-contained module for the BlackDiamond 6800 series chassis-based system. Unlike
most other BlackDiamond modules, there are no external interfaces on the ARM. Instead, the ARM
provides advanced IP services for the other I/O modules installed in the chassis. The ARM contains a
powerful set of packet processing resources and four full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet internal ports that
connect to the BlackDiamond backplane switch fabric. The ARM operates in a one-armed fashion:
• Receiving frames from the switch fabric.
• Processing the frames.
• Transmitting the frames back into the switch fabric which then sends them to the appropriate I/O
module.
A maximum of four ARM modules can be placed in a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch at any one
time.
Physical Description
This section describes the components and the LEDs of the ARM module, as shown in Figure 131.
The ARM module has the following key components:
• Two high-performance network processors
• A GPP subsystem
The network processors are high-performance, programmable devices that enhance the Extreme “i”
chipset to support expanded functionality, features, and flexibility.
The GPP subsystem handles system control and ARM management functions. The GPP subsystem
resides outside the packet forwarding data path to optimize routing and billing performance.

ARM LED Indicators. The ARM is equipped with two module-level LED indicators (STATUS and
DIAG) (see Figure 131).
• STATUS LED—Located near the top end of the ARM front panel, near the ejector/injector handle.
This LED indicator is a bi-color LED (displaying in either green or amber) that signals the operating
status of the module.
• DIAG LED—Located beside the STATUS LED. The LED is a bi-color LED (displaying in either green
or amber) that signals whether diagnostics are being run on the module.
NOTE
During the ARM module boot up, the Status and Diag LEDs may be incorrectly lit to solid green or solid
amber. The LEDs reflect their true state after approximately 30 seconds when the module has
completed its boot cycle.
For more information on ARM module LED activity, see “I/O Module LEDs” on page 271.
Service Ports. The ARM module is equipped with two front-panel service ports: one port is a DB-9

Summary of Features
The ARM includes the following features:
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
259
BlackDiamond 6800 Series I/O Modules
• IP unicast forwarding (with selective longest prefix match)
• Destination-sensitive accounting
IP Unicast Forwarding. IP unicast packets are forwarded in the ARM module using the longest prefix
match algorithm. Counts of packets and bytes are maintained based on the routes used to forward
packets.
All IP unicast forwarding is performed on the ARM to facilitate implementation of accounting. When
longest prefix match or accounting is enabled, the ARM, rather than the switch fabric hardware,
performs layer-3 IP unicast forwarding. Layer-2 switching and layer-3 IP multicast forwarding are
unaffected.
ExtremeWare distributes its IP unicast routing table, ARP table, and interface IP addresses to each ARM
so that every ARM contains the same IP routing database.
Each ARM has sufficient capacity to support 239 K IP longest prefix match lookup route entries. Each
route entry also supports up to four equal-cost paths, providing a maximum routing database capacity
of 958 K routes. IP forwarding is configurable per VLAN.
Each ARM IP routing database provides an aggregate IP forwarding throughput of up to 4 Gbps. The
total forwarding throughput for a single BlackDiamond chassis can be scaled up to 16 Gbps by adding
up to four ARM modules. ARMs interface to the BlackDiamond switch fabric via four 1 Gbps internal
links.
See the ExtremeWare Software User Guide for more information about configuring longest prefix matching
on the ARM.
Destination-Sensitive Accounting. Counts of IP packets and bytes are maintained based on the IP
routes used to forward packets. Destination-sensitive accounting gives you the flexibility to bill your
customers at predetermined and different rates. The rates are based on the customers’ IP unicast packet
destinations.
Destination-sensitive accounting categorizes IP unicast packets according to two parameters:
• The ID of the VLAN from which the packet was received
• The accounting bin number associated with the route used to forward the packet
For each category, 64-bit counts of both the number of packets and number of bytes forwarded,
excluding those locally delivered to the MSM CPU, are collected. Eight accounting bin numbers, with
values from 0-7, are available for each of the possible 4096 VLAN IDs. This yields a maximum of 32768
sets of accounting statistics.
You use accounting statistics to bill your customers. For a given set of statistics, the source VLAN ID
identifies the customer and the accounting bin number corresponds to a billing rate.
Use the ExtremeWare route-map function to configure policies that assign accounting bin numbers to IP
routes. Bin zero is the default bin. Any route that does not have an explicit bin assignment via the
route-map function defaults to bin zero.
You retrieve accounting statistics via the CLI and SNMP.
See the ExtremeWare Software User Guide for more information about configuring destination-sensitive
accounting on the ARM.

Summary of Features
The MPLS module includes the following features:
• MPLS
• IP unicast forwarding (with selective longest prefix match)
• Destination-sensitive accounting
MPLS. MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a forwarding algorithm that uses short, fixed-length
labels to make next-hop forwarding decisions for each packet in a stream.
MPLS is a technology that allows routers to make protocol-independent forwarding decisions based on
fixed-length labels. The use of MPLS labels enables routers to avoid the processing overhead of delving
deeply into each packet and performing complex route lookup operations based upon destination IP
addresses.
In an MPLS environment, incoming packets are initially assigned “labels” by a Label Edge Router
(LER). The labels allow the packets to be more efficiently handled by MPLS-capable routers at each
point along the forwarding path.
An MPLS label essentially consists of a short fixed-length value carried within each packet header and
that identifies a Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC). The FEC tells the router how to handle the
packet. An FEC is defined to be a group of packets that are forwarded in the same manner. Examples of
FECs include an IP prefix, a host address, or a VLAN ID. The label concept in MPLS is analogous to
other connection identifiers, such as an ATM VPI/VCI or a Frame Relay DLCI.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
263
BlackDiamond 6800 Series I/O Modules
By mapping to a specific FEC, the MPLS label efficiently provides the router with all of the local link
information needed for immediate forwarding to the next hop. MPLS creates a Label Switched Path
(LSP) along which each Label Switch Router (LSR) can make forwarding decisions based solely upon
the content of the labels. At each hop, the LSR simply strips off the existing label and applies a new
one that tells the next LSR how to forward the packet.
MPLS Layer-2 VPNs. As networks grow and become more pervasive, the need to separate the
physical network infrastructure from the logical network or VLAN organization has become
increasingly important. By logically separating the network topology from the service provided by the
physical network, services are more easily managed, reliability through increased redundancy is
improved, and you gain more efficient use of the physical network infrastructure.
By mapping a VLAN to a specific set of MPLS tunnels, you can create virtual private networks (VPNs).
Within a VPN, all traffic is opaquely transported across the service provider network. Each VPN can be
managed and provisioned independently.
VPNs may have two or more customer points of presence (PoP). All PoPs are interconnected using
point-to-point tunnels. If there are two PoPs in the VPN, the VPN is considered to be point-to-point. If
there are more than two PoPs in the VPN, the VPN is considered to be multipoint. Multipoint VPNs can
be fully-meshed or hub-and-spoke.
Layer-2 VPNs are constructed from a set of interconnected point-to-point MPLS tunnels. Tunnel
endpoint nodes operate as virtual VPN switches, bridging traffic between tunnels and the local egress
VLAN. MAC caching is integrated into the MPLS module. Source MAC addresses within each VPN are
associated with the tunnel from which the packet is received. Up to 256K MAC addresses can be
cached. Within a VPN, once a MAC address has been learned, unicast traffic destined to the cached
MAC address is transmitted over a single tunnel. Integrated VPN MAC caching enhancement increases
network performance and improves VPN scalability.
IP Unicast Forwarding. IP unicast packets are forwarded in the MPLS module using the longest prefix
match algorithm. IP unicast forwarding is required to switch packets at ingress or upon egressing an
MPLS network domain.
All IP unicast forwarding is performed on the MPLS module to facilitate implementation of MPLS and
accounting. When MPLS, longest prefix match, or accounting functions are enabled, the MPLS module,
rather than the switch fabric hardware, performs layer-3 IP unicast forwarding. Layer-2 switching and
Layer-3 IP multicast forwarding are unaffected. See the ExtremeWare Software User Guide for more
information about configuring longest prefix match on the MPLS module.
ExtremeWare distributes its IP unicast routing table, ARP table, MPLS incoming label mappings (ILMs),
FEC-to-NHFLE database, and interface IP addresses to each MPLS module so that every MPLS module
contains the same IP routing database.
Each MPLS module has sufficient capacity to support 256K IP longest prefix match lookup route entries.
Each route entry also supports up to four equal-cost paths. IP forwarding is configurable per VLAN.
Each MPLS module IP routing database provides an aggregate IP forwarding throughput of up to 4
Gbps. The total forwarding throughput for a single BlackDiamond chassis can be scaled up to 16 Gbps
by adding up to four MPLS modules. MPLS modules interface to the BlackDiamond switch fabric via
four 1 Gbps internal links. IP unicast traffic is internally forwarded from the BlackDiamond I/O
modules using one of three backplane load-sharing policies: port-based, address-based, or round-robin.
See the ExtremeWare Software User Guide for more information.
Destination-Sensitive Accounting. Counts of IP packets and bytes are maintained based on the IP
routes used to forward packets. Destination-sensitive accounting gives you the flexibility to bill your
264
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Configuring I/O Modules
customers at predetermined and different rates. The rates are based on the customers’ IP unicast packet
destinations.
Destination-sensitive accounting allows you to bill your customers at different rates depending upon
the destination of the IP unicast packets they send.
Destination-sensitive accounting categorizes IP unicast packets according to two parameters:
• The ID of the VLAN from which the packet was received
• The accounting bin number associated with the route used to forward the packet
For each category, 64-bit counts of both the number of packets and number of bytes forwarded,
excluding those locally delivered to the MSM CPU, are collected. Eight accounting bin numbers, with
values from 0-7, are available for each of the possible 4096 VLAN IDs. This yields a maximum of 32768
sets of accounting statistics.
You use accounting statistics to bill your customers. For a given set of statistics, the source VLAN ID
identifies the customer and the accounting bin number corresponds to a billing rate.
Use the ExtremeWare route-map function to configure policies that assign accounting bin numbers to IP
routes. Bin 0 is the default bin. Any route that does not have an explicit bin assignment via the
route-map function defaults to bin 0.
You retrieve accounting statistics via the CLI and SNMP.

The A3cSi and A3cMi, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), modules have four OC-3 ports using
duplex SC connectors. The A3cSi supports single mode fiber-optic cable only, and the A3cMi support
multimode fiber-optic cable only. These modules interconnect metropolitan area networks across an
ATM infrastructure, interconnect server co-location network sites directly using ATM links, and provide
connectivity between a legacy Enterprise ATM network and an Ethernet backbone.
In the first application, the metropolitan area network service provider can build service network sites
in various cities, then use ATM modules in a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch to connect those cities to
a carrier’s ATM infrastructure.
In the second application, operators of server co-location networks can use ATM modules in
BlackDiamond 6800 series switches to create an ATM-based connection between server co-location sites.
The result is that their network is simpler to manage, and problems can be isolated and resolved more
expediently.
In the third application, a service provider can provide Ethernet-based services by using ATM modules
in a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch to connect their Enterprise ATM network to an Ethernet
backbone.
Extreme Networks offers the ATM module in the following configurations:
• A3cSi—four OC-3 single-mode, intermediate-reach optical interfaces
• A3cMi—four OC-3 multimode, short-reach optical interfaces
NOTE
The “c” in the names of the modules indicates that the optical interfaces on these modules operate in
concatenated mode, which enables all the bandwidth to be devoted to a single payload stream.

ATM. ATM is a connection-oriented packet transmission technique that is widely used in existing
telecommunications networks to transport voice, video, and data. ATM uses fixed size data packets
called “cells” which are 53-bytes long and have a header that includes a connection identifier. The
connection identifier makes it possible to support more than one point-to-point connection on a single
physical ATM connection. The switches in an ATM network use the connection identifier in each cell to
forward the cell to the next hop.
SONET and SDH. SONET and SDH are the two terms used to identify a time division multiplexing
technology that is optimized for transporting voice traffic across a digital optical network, but that is
also capable of providing high-speed capacity for transporting data.
The term SONET is used to identify the technology used within the North American digital network. Its
standards are published by Bellcore and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The term
SDH is used to identify the equivalent standard approved by the International Telecommunication
Union (ITU) for use in Europe and elsewhere in the global digital network. Because SDH evolved out of
SONET, the two standards are closely related and have been widely accepted as a dominant choice for
implementations requiring high transport capacity and resistance to failure. The term SONET is used
through out this guide. In instances where there are differences between SONET and SDH, the
differences are explicitly called out.
Jumbo Frames. The ATM module ports provide jumbo frame support that is similar to that provided
by Ethernet ports on a BlackDiamond 6800 series switch.
Jumbo frames are Ethernet frames that are larger than 1522 bytes, including four bytes used for the
cyclic redundancy check (CRC). Extreme products that use the “i” chipset support switching and
routing of jumbo frames at wire-speed on all ports.
Jumbo frames are used between endstations that support larger frame sizes for more efficient transfers
of bulk data. Both endstations involved in the transfer must be capable of supporting jumbo frames.

BlackDiamond 6800 Series I/O Modules
QoS and Differentiated Services. The ATM module supports eight ingress queues and eight egress
queues per port. The scheduling parameters for these queues (minimum bandwidth, maximum
bandwidth, priority level, etc.) are controlled by QoS profiles that you can customize for individual
ingress or egress queues on a specific ATM port.
You can assign frames to queues based on IEEE 802.1p priorities, Differentiated Services Code Points
(DSCPs), or by configuring a QoS profile for the port or VLAN. You can tailor the DSCP-to-queue
mapping on a per-port basis. Most of the existing ingress classification functions, along with the
DiffServ replacement functions, are also supported for ATM ports.
The supported DiffServ functions maximize user flexibility while providing all of the features needed to
support the standard per-hop behaviors (PHBs), including:
• Default
• Class Selector
• Assured Forwarding
• Expedited Forwarding
The ATM module also provides flexible support for the well-known Weighted RED (WRED) congestion
avoidance algorithm.
Service Provider Features
The ATM module provides the following features for service provider environments:
• DSCP mapping
• VLAN ID (VID) tag mapping
• VLAN ID (VID) tag nesting
• VLAN to PVC mapping
DSCP Mapping. You can use the diffserv dscp-mapping command to configure a mapped
relationship between an input DSCP and an associated output DSCP. Each ATM port supports three
DSCP mapping tables: one of the tables is used in the ingress direction; two are used for egress flows
(onto the ATM link). The two egress tables are for the congested and noncongested states, as
determined by the RED algorithm. If RED is not enabled on the ATM port, the egress congested-state
mapping table is not used.
In the ingress direction, the input DSCP of a packet received from the ATM link is replaced by an
output DSCP before the packet is forwarded. In the egress direction, the operation is similar, except that
the DSCP mapping occurs before the packet is transmitted onto the ATM link.
One potential use of the DSCP mapping capability is to reconcile varying DiffServ policies at the
boundary between autonomous systems, such as at the boundary between two ISPs. The availability of
different tables for the congested and noncongested states is useful in marking operations that increase
the probability of packets being dropped during times of congestion, as discussed in the DiffServ
Assured Forwarding RFC (RFC 2597).
VLAN ID (VID) Tag Mapping. An analogous feature has been added for the managing of 802.1Q tags.
The dot1q tagmapping command provides support for VLAN ID (VID) mapping tables. Each ATM
port supports two VID tables: one table is used in the ingress direction; the other is used in the egress
direction. Each of the tables enables an input VID to be mapped to an output VID. This feature is useful
in reconciling policy differences at the boundary between the customer and the service provider.
270
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Configuring I/O Modules
VLAN ID (VID) Tag Nesting. Another related enhancement provides support for nested 802.1Q tags by
allowing a tag push or tag pop attribute to be associated with a VID. The push attribute indicates that a
new tag is to be added to the frame, while the pop attribute indicates that the top-level tag is to be
removed from the frame. This capability is augmented by an option that allows the 802.1p priority of
the frame to be either preserved or set to a user-configurable value when a new tag is pushed. These
functions make it possible for service providers to tunnel customer-specific VLANs across a common
ATM backbone in a very simple manner.
VLAN to PVC Mapping. VLAN to PVC mapping can be used by service providers to isolate and
provision a customer’s traffic using different VLANs and PVCs for each customer. Thus, a service
provider can securely transport a customer’s Ethernet traffic across an ATM backbone or vice-versa.
Software Requirements
The ATM module requires that you run ExtremeWare 7.0 or later on both the MSM64i module and the
ATM module, BootROM 7.8 for the MSM64i module, and BootROM 1.18 for the ATM module.
For more information about software requirements and ATM module configuration, see the ExtremeWare
Software User Guide and the ExtremeWare Command Reference Guide.
Hardware Requirements
The ATM module is compatible with “i” series MSM modules only. For the most current list of I/O
modules supported for use with the ATM module, consult your release notes.
ATM modules installed in a BlackDiamond chassis require at least one BlackDiamond Ethernet I/O
module also installed in the chassis in order to operate correctly.

Installing I/O Modules
You can insert I/O modules at any time, without causing disruption of network services. Complete the
action of inserting a BlackDiamond I/O module in a reasonable time frame. Be sure to insert the
module completely to avoid partial insertion or connection of backplane connectors.
You need the following tools and equipment to install an I/O module:
• ESD-preventive wrist strap
• # 1 Phillips screwdriver
• I/O module
• Appropriate type of cable for the I/O module you plan to install
272
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
Installing I/O Modules
To install an I/O module:
1 Select a slot for the module:
• Slots numbered 1 through 16 in the BlackDiamond 6816 chassis
• Slots numbered 1 through 8 in the BlackDiamond 6808 chassis
• Slots numbered 1 through 4 in the BlackDiamond 6804 chassis
CAUTION
You can install I/O modules only in slots 1 through 16 in the BlackDiamond 6816, slots 1 through 8
in the BlackDiamond 6808, or slots 1 through 4 on the BlackDiamond 6804. I/O modules do not fit in
slots A, B, C, or D. Forceful insertion can damage the I/O module.
2 Attach the ESD strap that is provided to your wrist and connect the metal end to the ground
receptacle that is located on the top-left corner of the switch front panel.
3 Remove the blank faceplate from the slot to make room for the module, if applicable.
NOTE
Any unoccupied module slot in the chassis should have a blank faceplate installed to ensure
satisfactory protection from EMI and to guarantee adequate airflow through the chassis.
4 Grasp the module by its front panel with one hand, and place your other hand under the edge of the
metal panel to support the weight of the module. Check the connectors for dust and packing
materials.
CAUTION
To prevent ESD damage, handle the module by the metal panel edges only. Never touch the
components on the PCB or pins on any of the connectors.
5 For the BlackDiamond 6816 and the BlackDiamond 6804, ensure that the module is horizontal with
the module name to the left, the PCB on top, and that the ejector/injector levers are extended.
For the BlackDiamond 6808, ensure that the module is vertical with the module name at the top, the
PCB to the right, and that the ejector/injector levers are extended.
a Slide the module into the appropriate slot of the chassis (slots 1 through 16 in the BlackDiamond
6816, slots 1 through 8 in the BlackDiamond 6808, or slots 1 through 4 in the BlackDiamond
6804), until it makes contact with the backplane.
NOTE
Use the metal panel, not the PCB, to guide the I/O module
As the module begins to seat in the chassis, the ejector/injector levers begin to close.
b To close the ejector/injector levers, use both hands simultaneously to push the levers toward the
center of the module.
c
To secure the module, tighten the two captive screws using a #1 Phillips screwdriver.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
273
BlackDiamond 6800 Series I/O Modules
NOTE
Tighten the screws of this module before inserting additional modules. Otherwise, you might unseat
modules that you have not secured.
6 Store the module packaging for future use.
7 Leave the ESD strap permanently connected to the chassis so that it is always available when you
need to handle ESD-sensitive components.
To install additional I/O modules, repeat steps 1 through 6.
Verifying the I/O Module Installation
After you install an I/O module, verify that it is working correctly. Check the LEDs on the front panel
of the I/O module and use the command-line interface (CLI) show slot <slot number> command to
display slot-specific information about the newly installed module.
LED Indicators
When the I/O module and its ports (if applicable) are configured and operating normally, the
front-panel LED indicators should appear as follows:
• STATUS LED—green blinking
• DIAG LED—off
• Port status LED (per port):
The ARM and MPLS modules do not have external network interfaces (ports); therefore, there are no
port status LEDs on those modules.
— Green
— Amber blinking (all except ATM and PoS modules)
— Amber blinking, returning to green (ATM and PoS modules only)
For more information about I/O module LED activity, see “I/O Module LEDs” on page 271.
Displaying Slot Status Information
Assuming the I/O module has no problems, the command show slot <slot> (where <slot> is the
number of the slot where you installed the module) displays information about the module including:
general information about the module (name, serial number, part number), the state of the module
(power down, operational, mismatch between the slot configuration and the module in the slot), and
the status of the ports on the module.
If you have an ARM, PoS, ATM, or MPLS module, the command show slot <slot> also displays that
ExtremeWare has detected the module and set it to the OPERATIONAL state. As the module progresses
through its initialization, the GPP subsystem state changes to OPERATIONAL, and then each of the
network processors state changes to OPERATIONAL.
For more information about slot status information, see the ExtremeWare Software User Guide and the
ExtremeWare Command Reference Guide.

A Safety Information
Important Safety Information
WARNING!
Read the following safety information thoroughly before installing your Extreme Networks switch. Failure
to follow this safety information can lead to personal injury or damage to the equipment.
Installation, maintenance, and removal of a switch, chassis, or its components must be done by qualified
service personnel only.
Qualified service personnel have had appropriate technical training and experience that is necessary to
be aware of the hazards to which they are exposed when performing a task and of measures to
minimize the danger to themselves or other people.
You should consider the following before unpacking your equipment:
• Install the equipment in a secured, enclosed, and restricted-access area, ensuring that only qualified
service personnel have access to the equipment.
• Install the equipment only in a temperature- and humidity-controlled indoor area that is free of
airborne materials that can conduct electricity. Too much humidity can cause a fire. Too little
humidity can produce electrical shock and fire.
• When you handle the equipment on modular switches, put on the ESD wrist strap to reduce the risk
of electronic damage to the equipment. Leave the ESD strap permanently attached to the chassis so
that it is always available when you need to handle ESD-sensitive components.
Power
The Summit series switch has either one or two power inputs depending on the switch model. The
Alpine 3800 series switch has either one or two power inputs depending on the switch model. The
BlackDiamond 6816 has either four 220 VAC power inputs, eight 110 VAC power inputs, or eight -48
VDC power inputs. The BlackDiamond 6808 has either two 220 VAC power inputs, four 110 VAC power
inputs, or four -48 VDC power inputs.
• Disconnect power before removing the back panel of an Alpine switch or BlackDiamond switch.
• The unit must be grounded. Do not connect the power supply unit to an AC outlet without a ground
connection.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
293
Safety Information
• The unit must be connected to a grounded outlet to comply with European safety standards.

only fuses of the same manufacturer, make, and type.
Connections
Fiber Optic ports - Optical Safety. To protect your eyes, never look at the transmit LED/laser through a
magnifying device while it is powered on. Never look directly at a fiber port on the switch or at the
ends of fiber cable when they are powered on.
This is a Class 1 laser device.
WARNING!
Use fiber optic ports only for data communications applications that require optical fiber. Use only with
the appropriate connector. When not in use, replace dust cover. Using this module in ways other than
those described in this manual can result in intense heat that can cause fire, property damage, or
personal injury.
Lithium Battery
The battery in the bq4830/DS1644 device is encapsulated and not user-replaceable. The battery is
located on the SMMi for the Alpine switch, and the MSM motherboard for the BlackDiamond switch.
If service personnel disregard the instructions and attempt to replace the bq4830/DS1644, replace the
lithium battery with the same or equivalent type, as recommended by the manufacturer.
WARNING!
Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.
• Disposal requirements vary by country and by state.
• Lithium batteries are not listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a hazardous waste.
Therefore, they can typically be disposed of as normal waste.
Extreme Networks Consolidated Hardware Guide
