Step 6 Fit the tabs see Figure Table A-1 lists the currently available Catalyst series switch power supplies and the power supply description location.
Many telco organizations require a —48 VDC power supply to accommodate their power distribution Note systems. Due to form factor differences, the W AC-input and DC-input power supplies cannot be installed in any other Catalyst series switch chassis.
The table includes references to power cord illustrations. All W power supply power cords are 8 feet 2 inches 2. All W power supply power cords are 14 feet 4. Due to form factor differences, the W AC-input power supply cannot be installed in any other Catalyst series switch chassis. Power factor correction is a standard feature on Note all Catalyst series AC-input power Included in the table are references to illustrations of the power cords.
High-line input with power factor correction PFC included. Input voltage is 85 VAC or greater. SEV Type 23 Connector: For Cisco IOS, both power supplies come on.
The total available wattage is the output wattage of the higher wattage power supply. Lower wattage power System log and syslog messages are generated. The lower-wattage supply is disabled Catalyst operating system. The total available redundancy enabled wattage is the output wattage of the higher wattage power supply.
Appendix A Power Supply Specifications Power Supply Redundancy In systems that are equipped with two power supplies, if one power supply fails and the other power Note supply cannot fully power all of the installed modules, system power management will shut down devices in the following order: Power over Ethernet PoE devices— The chapter is divided into these sections: Appendix B Transceivers, Module Connectors, and Cable Specifications Transceivers 1-GB Transceiver Modules Table B-2 lists along with brief descriptions of the transceiver modules, pointers to cabling distances tables, and reference illustrations.
The only restrictions are Note that each SFP port must match the wavelength specifications on the other end of the cable and that the cable must not exceed the stipulated cable length for reliable communications.
Appendix B Transceivers, Module Connectors, and Cable Specifications Transceivers GB Transceiver Modules The GB transceiver modules are listed in Table B-5 along with brief descriptions of the transceiver modules, pointers to cabling distances tables, and reference illustrations. Minimum cabling distance for all types is 2 m according to the IEEE Requires a 5 db nm fixed loss attenuator for cable distances less than 20 km.
The attenuator is available from Cisco Systems The receive and transmit signals are polarized. Contaminated connectors Note can damage the fiber and cause data errors.
If your cable was purchased from Cisco Systems, pin 1 will be white on one connector, and pin 8 will be white on the other. A rollover cable reverses pins 1 and 8, 2 and 7, 3 and 6, and 4 and 5. This is what makes the C signficantly different from the C chassis. You can easily tell if the blade has some form of connection to the Cross Bar fabric by looking at the connectors on the back of the cards.
If the Cross Bar Connector is present, then the module has some form of the connection to the fabric. This is what was used in the early days of the chassis with the first generation C61xx and C63xx modules which could easily oversubscribe the backplane connection.
Most new installation are completely fabric switched excepting for IP Telephony installations who use the oversubscribed model and like the QoS features of the C and the high power density of up to W in a single chassis. This post is not a comprehensive look at the modules and supervisor architecture. This is covered a number of documents but check the White paper link just below this which has a lot more information and is a complete reference to the architecture of the C The reason for this article is to outline some of the issues that a Data Centre designer needs to understand.
The architecture of the switch, and same logic applies to storage switches, can impact the design of the network. There are other factors that might affect a design, such as the Multicast performance or the QoS features, but this article points out some of the first factors for thinking about whether C is the right switch. I hope you realise that knowing something about the guts of your switch, and how the insides look, is important to getting your network right.
Human Infrastructure for Data Networks. Host of the Packet Pushers Podcast on data networking at http: Cisco was less forthcoming about this or at least on this level of detail when we built out our Phoenix location. I always had a dislike for the stating of bandwidth as the sum of input and output. Of the dozens I have encountered it has always been to remove them in place of s or s so that any card could go anywhere.
At least the and have the same capacity in every slot. Since the WSxx could only use one backplane channel at 8Gbps, the C backplane looked like a good idea at the time.
If you give the customers what they ask for, you might regret it later. You forgot to mention that 40Gbps per slot is the Half-Duplex speed. Also the Sup2T supports 80Gbps per slot and supports dual channel on every slot in the That Half-Duplex on the slot again for a total of Gbps per slot or Gbps where they get the 2T.
