Background Information

Ethernet cards include:

  • E100T

  • E1000-2

  • E100T-G

  • E1000-2-G

The E100T and E1000-2 cards have been discontinued, but are included here because they will continue to be supported until March 28, 2007. These cards have been replaced with equivalent boards. The E100T-G is the functional equivalent of the discontinued E100T-12, and the E1000-2-G is the functional equivalent of the discontinued E1000-2. Refer to End of Life Announcement for E100T and E1000-2 cards for Cisco ONS 15454 for more information.

The 15454 uses E100T and E100T-G cards for Ethernet (10 Mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) and the E1000-2 and E1000-2-G cards for Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps). The E100T and E100T-G enable network operators to provide multiple 10/100 Mbps and the E1000-2 and E1000-2-G enable network operators to provide multiple 1000 Mbps access drops for high-capacity customer LAN interconnections.

Description of Port-Level Indicators

Each port has one LED, which can turn Amber (yellow-orange) or Green. This table shows the meaning of all possible LED states associated with the specific Ethernet port:

LED State Description
Amber Transmitting and Receiving.
Flashing Amber Flashes proportionally to traffic.
Flashing Green Transmitting only or Receiving only.
Solid Green Idle and Link Integrity is good.
OFF Inactive Connection or Unidirectional Traffic.
