MPC-SF/SG Ethernet switch introduction


Stand-alone 6 x 10/100Base-TX local ports and 2 x 100 BaseFX or 2 x 1000Base-FX / 10/100/1000Base-TX Up-link ports, multimode or singlemode devices, in-band management
General
MPC-SF/SG is a fully managed Temperature hardened stand-alone Fast or Gigabit Ethernet switch for video networking applications. The MPC-SF/ SG supports IGMP snooping, VLAN, network redundancy (standard STP/ RSTP or manufacturer specic FRNT 0 protocol), SNMP management, port conguration, port alarms, QoS (layer 2 and 3) and port mirroring.

Switching methods
The switch stores every incoming packets and then checks the packet for check sum errors, usually by checking the frame CRC (cyclic redundancy check sum). If an error is found the packet is discarded. Other reasons for discarding packets are undersized packets with less than 64 bytes or oversized packets with more than 1518 bytes (Ethernet MAC tagging results in maximum Ethernet packet length of 1522 bytes). Once the switch veries the packets are correct they are then forwarded onto the port(s) of the Switch and then to the corresponding network device. The Switching decision is made based on the MAC tables (Layer 2 Switching). All MAC tables are created and maintained automatically. When the MPC-SF/SG receives a packet on a port it stores the source MAC address in the MAC table that corresponds to that port. If a node is silent for a long time (ve minutes) the MAC address will age out and be removed from the table. The MAC table can hold up to 2000 (Fast Ethernet) or 8000 (Gigabit Ethernet) address entries with a MAC aging interval of ve minutes. If the MPC-SF/SG does not have the MAC address in the table it will send the packet to all ports (ooding). This is also the case for broadcast packets and multicast packets. The packet memory in the switch is one megabyte, this is normally enough to store thousands of packets (depending on size). The switch does not use ow control (IEEE 803.3x) to throttle end nodes to avoid dropping packets during network congestion. Instead of ow control it uses HOL (head of line blocking prevention). HOL guarantees that high priority packets can be forwarded to ports congested by low priority data. It is also possible to separate some ports for VLAN usage.

Simple network management protocol (SNMP)


The MPC-SF/SG switch supports SNMPv2c. SNMP enables network administrators and control engineers to manage network performance, nd and solve network problems, and plan for network growth. One feature of SNMP is that the SNMP agent (in this case a MPC-SF/SG switch) can send SNMP traps to one or more SNMP Hosts. SNMP traps mean system alarms such as a port link loss or a port enabled for port alarms or the switch temperature exceeding a predened threshold.

UTP CAT5 and CAT5e cable


The 1000Base-T GbE physical layer is designed for use on all UTP CAT5e cable. It is also suitable for use with all CAT5 cable manufactured after 1995 in accordance with the ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A (1995) standard.

Category 5 cable installed before 1995


UTP CAT5 cabling installed prior to 1995 is totally suitable for Fast Ethernet 100Base-TX. However, it may not yield consistent performance results when used with 1000Base-T GbE. This is because the standard was rst established in 1991 and then modied in 1995. Note! If your existing CAT5 cable was installed before 1995, make sure that it has been fully tested for use with 1000Base-T. For the most current test procedures and 1000Base-T installation recommendations, please refer to the Gigabit Ethernet Alliance web site at: www.gigabitethernet.org.

MPC-SG notes

Category 5 cable installed after 1995


When the IEEE rst began to work on the 1000Base-T physical layer standard, it based its specications on the CAT5 standard 1995 update. All cable installed after 1995 is ideally suited for use with 1000Base-T. Category 5e (Enhanced) 1000Base-T works equally well over CAT5 and CAT5e cable. The principal difference between the two cables is that CAT5e includes performance enhancements. Note! Use your on-hand supply of CAT5 cable, produced after 1995, with condence. When it comes time to replenish your supply be sure to ask for CAT5e (Enhanced) cable.

CAT5 cable connection


All CAT5 ports support extended 150 m distances when using high quality CAT5e or better cables. Both straight and cross connected RJ45 cables can be used for CAT5 connection. All CAT5 ports support MDI/MDIX by automatically accepting both straight and crossover Ethernet UTP cables. All CAT5 ports support also auto-negotiation protocol, detect the various modes that exist in the device on the other end of the wire and advertise their own abilities to automatically congure the highest performance mode of interoperation. The Switch also automatically corrects polarity errors. Furthermore the CAT5 UTP ports have isolation barriers between the signal lines and the internal electronics withstanding 1500 Vrms (1 minute).

Firmware version
The functionality and operation of the devices described in this manual applies for rmware version 3.20. onwards (done with 3.20).

Installation
Quick instructions
Install the temperature hardened MPC-SF/SG series Ethernet switch to its installation location. A 12 V supply voltage is provided by a CPS24x/ 25x mains adapter (see CPS24x example picture bottom). Switch on the power and see that all indicator LEDs on the front panel are going through a routine checking cycle. Connect all necessary Ethernet cables. Note! Management connection to the device can be created via any of local port, although port 1 is the recommended. Open IP cong tool on the computer connected to the switch and congure all necessary settings. Make sure that the port indicator led on the front panel is lit green on the ports where cables are connected. If the indicator led is dark, the Ethernet connection does not operate at that port. Default network addresses for the device is: 10.9.96.30 (IP) 255.255.255.0 (Netmask) 10.9.96.1 (Gateway)

Factory reset
The factory reset is done in two phases. In rst phase four ports are connected together and the switch is restarted to initiate the factory reset. In second phase the switch is restarted again for the factory default conguration to take place. 1. Connect port 1 to port 6 and port 2 to port 5 simultaneously and restart the switch. After the switch has restarted and the Status LED is green, the LEDs on the local ports will turn on & off following a certain pattern. For the factory reset to be complete the user must wait until LEDs are lit solid green on ALL 6 ports. 2. Power off the switch, remove the cables and powered on the switch again. The switch settings after factory reset are the following: IP address 192.168.2.85 Netmask 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.2.85 All ports are enabled All applications are disabled Username: admin Password: westermo* or otn**

VLAN (up to 7 pcs)


A VLAN is a group of end stations with a common set of requirements, independent of physical location. A VLAN has the same attributes as a physical LAN but allows you to group end stations even if the VLANs are not located physically on the same LAN segment. VLANs allow you to group ports on a Switch to limit unicast, multicast, and broadcast trafc ooding. Flooded trafc originating from a particular VLAN is only ooded out other ports belonging to that VLAN.

Management connection
The primary conguration interface to MPC-SF/SG switches is WebUI. The IP Cong Tool is to be used in special cases only. The MPC-SF/SG Switch can be congured locally and/or remotely via any of the Ethernet ports. However, port 1 is recommended when using IP Cong Tool management connection.

Fibre connection
Auto-MDIO is not supported on the bre ports. Thus, the user must make sure that the bre drop link used is cross-connected. This is veried by checking if the bre port LED is on or not, when the bre drop link is connected between two switches or the switch and a bre enabled end node. Manual swooping of the TX/RX drop link on one of the bre devices is required in case the LED is off on both devices. This can be done either directly on the switch bre port or on a bre patch panel if this is available (preferably). The optical Ethernet up-link interface is a small form-factor pluggable (SFP, see picture beside). The small form-factor pluggable is a specication for a new generation of optical modular transceivers. The optics is not hotswappable. The optical output level is constant and cannot be adjusted. When installing the bre optic cable, do not exceed the minimum bending radius when connecting cable to the system. Note! For correct optical operation ensure that all optical connectors are cleaned immediately before mating. Connectors should always be cleaned using high purity alcohol (e.g. methyl or isopropyl alcohol). Dry the surfaces using clean compressed air or other equivalent pressurised gas. The optical connectors on the equipment should always be protected with dustcaps when there is no bre inserted. Optical Ethernet connection meets class 1 laser safety requirements of IEC60825-2: 2004 and US department of health services 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 (1990) when operated within the specied temperature, power supply and duty cycle ranges.

How to unplug or plug-in the SFP transceiver module


If your up-link port requirements change, simply unplug the existing SFP module, and plug-in the new module. The SFP transceiver modules must be installed before the switch is powered on. The SFP transceiver module has a bale-clasp latch that makes er to install or remove the module. Protect the SFP module by inserting a clean dustplug into the module after you remove the bre cable. Be sure to clean the optic surfaces of the bre cable before you plug the cable into another module. Check which connector plug is send (TX) and which is receive (Rx).

Redundant Ring
Introduction
The redundant ring technology eliminates network failure caused by bre or copper failures. The MPC-SF/SG Switches supports standard Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Fast Reconguration Network Topology (FRNT). The latter protocol is alternative ring protocol optimized for rings containing many Switches and requiring very low re-conguration times. The recovery time is a critical factor for several applications. FRNT can be used when a recovery time beyond that offered by standard STP/ RSTP protocols is needed. The recovery time with a ring failure can be down to 20 ms. This requires that all switches in the ring support FRNT. Together with a reliable hardware design and optional redundant power supplies systems with maximum availability can be achieved. Switches are congurated via Ethernet connection using PC with MS Windows operating system and Web User Interface (WebUI). This means that all equipment can be installed prior to the conguration. The WebUI can also be used for remote conguration and management.

Ring wiring Connect port 8 to port 7 on the next switch in the ring.
Note! RSTP/STP and FRNT can not be combined.

FRNT version 0 conguration rules


Port 7 and 8 are FRNT version 0 ports Always connect port 8 to 7, 8 to 7, .. 8 to 7 through the ring (never 7 to 7 or 8 to 8) One switch as the network focal point (root)

Spanning tree protocol (STP)


The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Spanning Tree Protocol. The Spanning Tree Protocol, which is also referred to as STP, is dened in the IEEE Standard 802.1d. The STP provides a loop-free network. When a switch supporting STP recognizes a loop in the network topology, it blocks one or more redundant ports. Spanning Tree Protocol continually explores the network, so when the network topology changes, STP automatically recongures switch ports to avoid the failure by blocking certain ports. It allows the device to interact with other STP compliant devices in your network to ensure that only one path exists between any two stations on the network.

Rapid spanning tree protocol (RSTP)


The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol. The Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol, which is also referred to as RSTP, is dened in the IEEE Standard 802.1w. RSTP is an evolution of the STP, and provides faster spanning tree convergence after a topology change. The 802.1d terminology remains primarily the same, and most parameters have been left unchanged so users familiar with 802.1d can rapidly congure the new protocol comfortably.

Fast re-conguration of network topology (FRNTv0)


The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Fast Re-conguration Topology Protocol version 0, which is also referred to as FRNTv0. The FRNTv0 protocol is similar to the IEEE Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) except for the following: The FRNT keeps network load generated by ring packets at very low level, thus the reaction times are faster. Each switch in a ring topology has knowledge of the network topology, not only of its neighboring switches as is the case for STP. A FRNT topology change event packet will be sent directly to the focal point switch in case of a topology change (e.g. a link loss or a link establishment), while a STP implementation will only send STP control packets one network hop. The ring is managed by one Switch selected as Focal Point in FRNT. The other Switches in the ring are called member switches. The FRNT ring solution can recover from a failure in only 20 ms if such a failure does occur. The MPC-SF/SG switches include the FLHP (FRNT Link Health Protocol). The FLHP protocol helps RSTP to determine the health of the bre links. The FLHP is proprietary protocol. Note! When using FRNT protocol all switches have to be Teleste MPC-SF/SG or CES series switches.

MPC-SF/SG user manual

Virtual LANs (VLAN)


General
A virtual LAN, commonly known as a vLAN or as a VLAN, is a logicallyindependent network. Several VLANs can co-exist on a single physical switch. A VLAN consists of a network of computers that behave as if connected to the same wire - even though they may actually physically connect to different segments of a LAN. Network administrators congure VLANs through software rather than hardware, which makes them extremely exible. One of the biggest advantages of VLANs emerges when physically moving a computer to another location: it can stay on the same VLAN without the need for any hardware reconguration. The IEEE 802.1Q tagging protocol dominates the VLAN world. A physical Ethernet network can be divided into several overlapping Virtual LANs (VLAN) without having IEEE802.1Q tagging or GVRP (Generic VLAN Registration Protocol) support on the Ethernet end nodes. All Ethernet trunk ports are member of all of the seven legal VLANs. A trunk port means a switch port connected to another switch; where a network redundancy protocol is running (e.g. FRNT or RSTP). This means that the VLAN tables on each switch are dynamically updated during a network topology change. Thus, no VLAN user conguration is required on the trunk ports. See page 24 how to congure the VLAN settings.

Operation
The VLAN implementation is meant for both Ethernet end nodes that support tagging and for those that do not. An Ethernet end node that is not able to send tagged packets can, however, only participate in one VLAN, i.e. the default VLAN id for the port is used as the VLAN for such an end node. A default VLAN id for a given port will be associated to each untagged packet received on the switch (or tagged packet with VLAN id equal to 0). This VLAN id will be added to packet as an IEEE802.1Q tag. This tag can be removed at the output port(s) if the port(s) is congured for tag removal. Seven different VLANs are available: - White, VLAN id = 1, priority = 7 [high] - Red, default VLAN id = 2, default priority = 0 [low] - Blue, default VLAN id = 3, default priority = 0 [low] - Green, default VLAN id = 4, default priority = 0 [low] - Yellow, default VLAN id = 5, default priority = 0 [low] - Brown, default VLAN id = 6, default priority = 0 [low] - Pink, default VLAN id = 7, default priority = 0 [low]

MPC-SF/SG user manual

13

The VLAN that is selected as the default VLAN for a given port will appear as an unchangeable VLAN, while other VLANs selected for the same port has only relevance in case the end node connected to the same port is able to send and receive packets with these VLAN ids. All ports on a switch are members of the white VLAN, and this is cannot be changed. However, an end node cannot send white packets unless the end node sends packets with the white VLAN id unless the default VLAN for the port is the white VLAN. Port 1 has the white VLAN id as the default VLAN, and this cannot be changed. An end node that is used for network management (SNMP or IP conguration) must always use the white VLAN in order to communicate with the switchs CPU. Thus, the switch CPU can always be accessed via port 1 with untagged packets, since port 1 has the white VLAN as the default VLAN. Note! this means that red, blue, green, yellow, brown and pink packets never will be sent to the switch CPU. This is important in order to avoid that the port between the switch fabric and the CPU becomes a bottleneck, where important packets might be lost (e.g. FRNT control packets). Example: A non white broadcast load close to full wire speed is not a problem for correct switch CPU operation. The tag is not removed on packets sent on a trunk port, and each trunk port is member of all seven VLANs. This means that the user does not need to set any VLAN parameters on the trunk ports, and that any network topology change will be handled automatically. The layer 2 priority of a given VLAN can also be set. I.e.: - Priority 0, 1: QoS level 1 - Priority 2, 3: QoS level 2 - Priority 4, 5: QoS level 3 - Priority 6, 7: QoS level 4 This priority will be added to the tag. The legal VLAN id range is 1...4096. A few VLAN ids in this range are reserved for other use. The network should only be based on switches enabled for VLAN or not. A mix of switches with and without VLAN support will not provide the user with the capability of tag removal on all parts of the network.

Bridge Prio: Selects the RSTP priority. It is 32768 by default. The bridge with the lowest numerical value will be selected as RSTP root Dynamic Trunking: Enable/disable dynamic trunking. When enabled, a port will become a trunk port (member of all VLANs, tagged) if it receves a BPDU on this port. Default value is disabled Edge Ports: Active/inactive edge ports. Ports may be congured as edge ports if they are attached to a LAN that has no other bridges attached. These edge ports transition directly to the forwarding state. RSTP still continues to monitor the port for BPDUs in case a bridge is connected. As soon as the bridge detects a BPDU coming to an edge port, the port becomes a nonedge port. Choose protocol: Disables switch to use RSTP protocol Choose desired redundancy protocol, either RSTP, FRNT or none

The trunk ports that are dened in this page. The trunk ports dened on this page are not 802.12 VLAN trunk. It just statically tells where is the IGMP Querier 3. All tagged port. Tagged ports are dened on the VLAN page. This is the 802.1Q tagged port, similar to Ciscos term trunk Enable Multicast Stoplter: Enables ltering of all multicast trafc which does not have registered receiver (unknown multicasts) Enable IGMP Automode: If enabled, it ensures that only 1 IGMP Querier is present in the network. The switch with the lowest IP address will be selected as the Querier Enable IGMP Querier: Allows the switch to become an IGMP Querier candidate Querier Interval (Seconds): Congurable IGMP query interval in seconds Enable IGMP Fast Reconnect: This option can be used only with FRNT redundancy protocol. Trunk Ports: Species the ports that lead towards the IGMP Querier. Typically the switch could detect (by IGMP snooping) where is the IGMP Querier. However, you can manually tell the switch where the IGMP Querier is. Proper use of this conguration results is fast multicast recovery stream availability

Name: The use of White, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Brown and Pink colour names is intended to make it easier to talk about different VLANs. Port Nr: These seven checkboxes per port specify to which VLANs the port belongs. The port could belong to more than one VLAN Vlan Id: When conguring VLANs in different switches, only VLANs with the same id will be part of the same logical group. Therefore, the same VLAN color in all switches must have the same id in order to succeed. Pri: It is the Layer 2 Priority for each VLAN. The legal range is 0...7. The lower the value is, the lower the priority for the given VLAN. For VLAN White priority is xed to 7. Default: When an untagged packet is received on a port, the switch will regard the packet as coming from the default VLAN that is congure on that port. Remove Tag: Tag removal on egress. If this option is ticked, VLAN tags will be removed from Ethernet packets on egress: output data will have no VLAN tag. This option is always ticked in port 1 and cant be changed. Trunk ports must be member of all VLANs and the VLAN tags must not be removed. This settings allow data from all VLANs to be transmitted transparently through the network between different switches.

IP cong tool
Introduction
Note! The use of IP Cong Tool for switch conguration is recommended for previous FW versions, which do not support WebUI. From FW version 3.12 onwards the IP Cong Tool can only be used for switch discovery and IP address conguration (IP address, subnet mask and gateway) and for some specic special cases. This chapter introduces how the IP Cong Tool is used to congure and manage the MPC-SF/SG switches. The IP cong tool is used to congure the network settings such as IP address, subnet mask and default gateway of the MPC-SF/SG switches. This tool is also used to congure the redundant ring and time server parameters. Port 1 is always advised to be used as a local management port. In case a device is connected to the port 1, only remote management is available.

System requirements
The MPC-SF/SG Gigabit Ethernet switch (SW Ver 2.14 or newer) The X86 based PC computer running Windows 2000 or XP Ethernet network card Administrative rights are required during installation The IP cong tool (TelesteIPCong.exe, ver 9.7.1 or newer). The interconnection Ethernet cable

How to get the IP cong tool


You can download the latest version of IP Cong Tool from Telestes web site at: www.teleste.com.

How to install the IP cong tool


Unzip the le IP_Cong_Tool.zip by using e.g. WinZip and extract all the les to the folder you want. Ensure that all les reside in the same folder and that you can nd the folder after you extract them there. Start the program by running TelesteIPCongxxx.exe.

Operating
The IP Cong Tool consists principally of several windows. On the Selected Device page you can congure the chosen device. The IP Cong Tool has the following conguration display pages that are introduced in this document: - IP Conguration / Device list - Selected Device - Port conguration - VLAN conguration The information on conguration sheets is shown in data elds or boxes. You can change settings in data elds or boxes whose background is white. Place your cursor in the desired data eld or box and enter the new setting. Some settings are entered by ticking a checkbox or clicking on a radio button, by selecting from a pull-down list or by scrolling digits with the help of spin buttons. Information without dataeld or box is read only parameter and can not be change.

How to nd out the IP address of switch


In certain case you may have a need to nd out the IP address for a switch. IP Cong Tool can discover all Teleste switches in a layer 2 network: 1. Connect a PC to any port that belongs to VLAN White (the rst VLAN that is in the VLAN list. It is VLAN 1 by default). Port 1 is recommended to use because Port 1 is always member of VLAN White. 2. Type the IP address and subnet mask of the network card which you are using for discovery. This info is required because there can be more than one network interface card installed in the PC. 3. Click button --> all the Teleste switches will be listed in the table. The switchs IP address, subnet mask, MAC address, rmware version (SW ver) and type are also shown. Note! The discovery messages are layer 2 messages. This means that the switches can be discovered regardless of the IP addresses.

MPC-SF/SG IP Cong Tool user manual

Notes on the IP cong tool


1. IP Cong Tools subnet mask has to be same as PCs 2. IP Cong Tool must have temporary IP address in the same subnet as the PC (for example if PC has 10.9.96.5 the temporary IP can be 10.9.96.1) Note! DO NOT USE SPACE BUTTON when typing default IP address for IP Cong Tool! 3. If system role (root/or member switch) is changed, IP and subnet mask may not be changed at the same time 4. If system role is changed a reboot of the device is required 5. No reboot is required when changing IP and subnet mask settings 6. When using FRNTv0, only one root switch may be seen by the IP Cong Tool during ring conguration, otherwise the member switches congured may belong to the wrong ring (root MAC address can be collected from a root switch that belongs to another ring) 7. No routers or other devices ltering broadcast trafc are allowed to be connected between the ring switches and the conguration PC 8. If a switch is congured in the wrong way you may have to connect the PC directly into this switch in order to correct the settings

Trouble shooting
1. In case switches are not be found, check that there are no spaces used in IP Cong Tools default IP address eld 2. When using FRNTv0, only one root switch is allowed to be in a ring 3. Setting system role (root/member) requires restart of the switch

Firmware upgrade via IP cong tool


1. Make sure that the PC, the IP Cong Tool and the switches that are to be upgraded are in the same IP subnet 2. Unzip the zip le containing the new image to the FTP server directory 3. Select the switch in the IP Cong Tool that you want to upgrade 4. Disable SNMP and VLAN before starting the upgrade 5. Write upgrade in Host name eld and the name of the unzipped lename (e.g. lx214.bin) in the Location eld 6. Click button. A progress bar will appear in the bottom of the dialog box, and the switches will restart (the upgrade time is less than 2 minutes for the MPC-SF/ SG versions 2.00 and newer) Note! Make sure that you have waited at least 5 minutes after the upgrade procedure is started (pushed the Set button) before you remove power, or that you have veried that the switch has restarted. Removing power during the upgrade procedure might damage the le system and the switch will not restart.

IP Cong Tool and Firmware Versions


The IP Cong Tool version 9.7.1 or newer is recommended for switch rmware version 2.14. Switch control options for a switch will be enabled based on the version of IP Cong Tool and the rmware version running on the switch. Older versions of the IP Cong Tool can be used with the latest rmware, but then the user might not be able to congure the new switch features.

Glossary
Auto-Negotiation A Protocol dened in the Ethernet standard that allows devices at either end of a link segment to advertise and negotiate modes of operation such as the speed of the link, half- or full-duplex operation and full-duplex ow control. Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) BPDUs are data messages that are exchanged across the switches within an extended LAN that uses a spanning tree protocol topology. BPDU packets contain information on ports, addresses, priorities and costs and ensure that the data ends up where it was intended to go. BPDU messages are exchanged across bridges to detect loops in a network topology. The loops are then removed by shutting down selected bridge interfaces and placing redundant switch ports in a backup, or blocked, state. A bridge sends a BPDU frame using the unique MAC address of the port itself as a source address, and a destination address of the STP multicast address 01:80:C2:00:00:00. There are three types of BPDUs: Conguration BPDU (CBPDU), used for Spanning Tree computation. Topology Change Notication (TCN) BPDU, used to announce changes in the network topology. Topology Change Notication Acknowledgment (TCA). BPDUs are exchanged regularly (every 2 seconds by default) and enable switches to keep track of network changes and to start and stop forwarding at ports as required. CSMA/CD (Carrier Sense Multiple Access / Collision Detection) A set of rules determining how network devices respond when two devices attempt to use a data channel simultaneously (called a collision). The CSMA/ CD method is internationally standardized in IEEE 802.3 and ISO 8802.3. DHCP (Dynamic Host Conguration Protocol) Internet standard (RFC 1541) protocol for distributing conguration information to network and allows a computer to obtain its own IP address automatically rather than having it entered manually. Fast Ethernet (100Base-T and 100Base-X) Uses CSMA/CD access method at 100 Mbps; IEEE 802.3u. Can use full duplex (200 Mbps). Full Duplex The ability to transmit and receive signals simultaneously. Gateway Gateways are points of entrance to and exit from a communications network. Viewed as a physical entity, a gateway is that node that translates between two otherwise incompatible networks or network segments. Gigabit Ethernet (1000Base-T and 1000Base-X) Informal name for standard IEEE 802.3z. CSMA/CD technology designed to provide 1 Gbps network connectivity. Based on existing and evolving 802.3
34

standards, Gigabit Ethernet is expected to incorporate both half and full-duplex operation, link-level ow control, VLAN support, and systems management. Support for one repeater per collision domain, backward compatibility with 10Base-T and 100Base-TX. Half Duplex The ability to transmit and receive signals in both directions, but only in one direction at a time. Host Any device on the network that implements communication above the Data Link Layer. Hostname A synonym for IP domain name, which typically takes the form host. Hub A physical layer device, generally used to serve at the center of a star-topology network. Hubs accept host, internetworking, and network management modules; and provide re-timing/repeater, bridging, and/or network management functionality. A hub is an Ethernet multi-port repeater, which sometimes referred to as a concentrator. IEEE 802.3 Denes carrier sense multiple access with collision detection (CSMA/CD) access method and physical layer specications. IEEE 802.3u Denes CSMA/CD access method and physical layer specications for 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet. IEEE 802.3ab Denes CSMA/CD access method and physical layer specications for 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet. IEEE 802.3z Denes CSMA/CD access method and physical layer specications for 1000BASE Gigabit Ethernet. IEEE 802.1q VLAN Tagging - Denes Ethernet frame tags which carry VLAN information. It allows switches to assign endstations to different virtual LANs, and denes a standard way for VLANs to communicate across switched networks. IEEE 802.1d Spanning Tree Protocol controls redundant links between Layer 2 switches and ensures theres only one active path any two devices and no loops; does not allow for load sharing, only redundancy. IEEE 802.1p Provides trafc class expediting and dynamic multicast ltering. Essentially, it provides a mechanism for implementing Quality of Service (QoS) at the MAC level. 802.1p is part of the IEEE 802.1d standard along with IEEE 802.1q.
MPC-SF/SG user manual

IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree is an update of the original Spanning Tree Protocol that improves Layer 2 convergence from 30 seconds or more to a few seconds or less. IEEE 802.3p Provides QoS. Trafc is classied and prioritized attending to Layer 2 class of service eld. IEEE 802.3x Denes Ethernet frame start/stop requests and timers used for ow control on full-duplex links. IGMP (Internet Group Multicast Protocol) The Internet standard (RFC 1112) extensions to IP that support IP datagram multicasting to a host group. Membership in a host group is dynamic and there are no topological restrictions to participating in a host group. Hosts groups may be either permanent or transient. Host groups are identied by Class D IP addresses. There are three levels of conformance: 0: no support; 1: support for sending but not receiving; 2: full support. IGMP Querier The device which manages IGMP service. IGMP Querier asks all the devices in a network for possible multicast groups of interest. In a IGMP enabled network where multicast trafc is being delivered, multicast receivers must join multicast groups, advertise periodically their membership to the groups and nally, leave the groups. There must be only one IGMP Querier in a given network. IP (Internet Protocol) The most important protocol of the Internet suite. IP allows information to traverse multiple networks worldwide. The network layer protocol (RFCs 760, 791) for the Internet protocol suite. Local Area Network (LAN) A local area network is generally a private network. It is under the control of the owner and used by a set of related individuals and/or workgroups, typically within a single building or over a group of neighboring buildings. LANs are a group of computers and associated devices that share a common communications line and typically share the resources of a single processor or server within a small geographic area (for example, within an ofce building). A local area network may serve as few as two or three users (for example, in a home network) or many as thousands of users (for example, in an FDDI network). MAC (Media Access Control) The protocol level that describes network management frames sent on the 802.5 token ring. Most MAC frames are handled transparently by the network adapter. MAC Address The unique physical (data link layer) address of an individual network interface. The standard species
MPC-SF/SG user manual

both 16- and 48-bit addresses. The 802.1 standards committee has dened a canonical format for writing and transmitting a MAC address. It is expressed as six octets separated by hyphens, each octet represented as twohexadecimal digits, least-signicant bit rst (littleendian). (As a matter of custom, non-canonical, most-signicant bit rst representation is given using colons as the octet separator.) For example, 08-00-2085-e6-8d is a typical canonical MAC address. Within the MAC address are a number of elds of interest. The most signicant (rst) bit, known as the I/G bit (for Individual or Group) is 0 if the address represents an individual station; it is 1 if the address is a multicast (group or broadcast) address. The second bit, known as the U/L (for Universal or Local) bit is 0 if the address is globally administered and registered with the IEEE; it is 1 if it is a locally administered address. MAC sublayer Media Access Control sublayer. As dened by the IEEE, the lower portion of the OSI reference model data link layer. The MAC sublayer is concerned with media access issues, such as whether token passing or contention will be used.
MDIO (Management Data Input/Output)

Management Data Input/Output, or MDIO, is a bus structure dened for the Ethernet protocol. MDIO is dened to connect Media Access Control (MAC) devices with PHY devices, providing a standardized access method to internal registers of PHY devices. Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) A network that interconnects users with computer resources in a geographic area or region larger than that covered by even a large local area network (LAN) but smaller than the area covered by a wide area network (WAN). The term is applied to the interconnection of networks in a city into a single larger network (which may then also offer efcient connection to a wide area network). It is also used to mean the interconnection of several local area networks by bridging them with backbone lines. The latter usage is also sometimes referred to as a campus network. MIB (Management Information Base) A collection of objects (database) that can be accessed via a network management protocol. See SNMP and RFC 1066. MIB-II (Management Information Base, Version 2) The revised object denitions for Internet standard network management. Objects are dened using a subset of the Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1). See SNMP and RFC 1213. Multicast Communication between a single sender and multiple receivers on a network. Streaming content can be sent multicast from one server to many users.
35

Multicast Address An address that refers to multiple network devices. Synonymous with group address. Netmask A bit mask used to select bits from an Internet address for subnet addressing. The mask is 32 bits long and selects the network portion of the Internet address and one or more bits of the local portion. This is also sometimes referred to as the address mask or subnet mask. Network Address The hostid 0 of an IP address is reserved; an IP address with the hostid zero is used to refer to the network itself. Network Layer: OSI Layer 3 Provides upper layers with independence from the data transmission and switching technologies used to connect systems; responsible for establishing, maintaining, and terminating connections. Responsible for routing, switching, and subnetwork access across the entire OSI environment. Ping (Packet InterNet Groper) Ping is a program that bounces a request off of another computer over a network to see if the remote computer is still responding. If the ping comes back, the remote computer is still alive. QoS (Quality of Service) Interactive video conferencing requires a high QoS. QOS is important as it determines the quality of your video call. Low quality of service results in latency and a jerky picture with poor and inconsistent audio quality. Ring A network topology in which all nodes are connected in a closed loop. Transmission is permitted by passing a token around the ring; a node copies out messages addressed to it and copies in messages addressed to others. Message receipt verication can also be performed with the token. Router On the Internet, a router is a device or, in some cases, software in a computer, that determines the next network point to which a packet should be forwarded toward its destination. The router is connected to at least two networks and decides which way to send each information packet based on its current understanding of the state of the networks it is connected to. A router is located at any gateway (where one network meets another), including each Internet point-ofpresence. A router is often included as part of a network switch. Server A networked computer that contains public resources or services that can be accessed using software applications called clients.
36

SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) A set of protocols for managing complex networks. SNMP works by sending messages, called protocol data units (PDUs), to different parts of a network. SNMP-compliant devices, called agents, store data about themselves in Management Information Bases (MIBs) and return this data to the SNMP requesters. SNMPv2 is a proposed update of version 1, that provides additional administrative structure, authentication, and privacy. Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) A standard bridge protocol (IEEE 802.1d). This protocol allows bridges to dynamically discover a subset of the LAN topology that is loop-free and provides connectivity to all LAN segments. Switch An internetworking device (multiport bridge) that intelligently segments networks to increase overall bandwidth, isolate trafc and provides an interface to high-speed networks. The switch selects a path or circuit for sending a unit of data to its next destination. A switch may also include some functions of the router, a device or program that can determine the route and specically what adjacent network point the data should be sent to. In general, a switch is a simpler and faster mechanism than a router, which requires knowledge about the network and how to determine the route. Type of Service (ToS) A byte in the IPv4 header (RFC 1349). it is represented in an 8-bit (1 byte) eld in the header which is used by a variety of QoS methods, including IP Precedence, Differentiated Services Code Point, and ToS eld. Unicast Communication between a single sender and a single receiver on a network. Compare with Multicast. VLAN (Virtual LAN) Network conguration, emulating a broadcast domain, where stations communicate using LAN protocols as if they were on the same LAN, but where they are actually on multiple segments connected through layers 1, 2, and/or 3. Wide Area Network (WAN) A geographically dispersed telecommunications network. The term distinguishes a broader telecommunication structure from a local area network (LAN). A wide area network connects local area networks to one another, generally using public infrastructure or services. The connections are made using the shared public infrastructure, public infrastructure leased for private use, and sometimes, private infrastructure (e.g., bre) with public services.

Recovery from state 0.00
If something goes wrong during upgrade, the switch will restart with rmware version 0.00. This means that the switch has started with the backup image. In this case the recovery to original version has to be done in two phases. First the switch has to be upgraded to an intermediate rmware version 2.15 and then to the latest version.

Firmware version 0.00.

Upgrading from 0.00 directly to 2.15


Backup rmware 0.00 has no web server running, so web UI is unavailable. For upgrading you should use IPcong tool. PC physically connected to Port1. FTP server is running on PC and congured properly to access the lx215.bin le. Then use IPcong tool to upgrade the switch. Hostname: upgrade Location: lx215.bin IP gateway: (FTP server IP address) Once the rmware is transferred from FTP server the switch, it takes 5-7 minutes for the switch to complete upgrade process. During the upgrade: Download completed notication. 1. Do not detach the cable from the switch 2. Do not turn off the switch 3. Do not close the IPcong tool until you get the Download completed notication. Then you can search again and will see the version changed to 2.15.

Upgrading rmware 0.00 to 2.15.

Firmware version 2.15..

Upgrading from 2.15 to 3.20


Since the rmware version 2.15 doesnt support WebUI, the upgrade procedure from rmware version 2.15 to the latest one will be done the same way as in phase 1 using the IP Cong Tool. Once the rmware transferred from FTP server to the switch, it takes 5 minutes for the switch to complete the upgrade process. Switch will restart two times. Do not close the IPcong tool until you get the Download completed notication. When Upgrading is done you can access the switch through WebUI.
