Follow these guidelines when working on equipment powered by electricity:

  • Locate the emergency power-off switch in the room in which you are working. If an electrical accident occurs, you can quickly turn off the power.
  • Disconnect all power before doing the following:

Installing or removing a chassis

Working near power supplies

  • Look carefully for possible hazards in your work area, such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, frayed power cords, and missing safety grounds.
  • Do not work alone if hazardous conditions exist.
  • Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit. Always check.
  • Never open the enclosure of the internal power supply.
  • If an electrical accident occurs, proceed as follows:

Use caution; do not become a victim yourself.

Turn off power to the device.

If possible, send another person to get medical aid. Otherwise, assess the condition of the victim and then call for help.

Determine if the person needs rescue breathing or external cardiac compressions; then take appropriate action.

In addition, use the following guidelines when working with any equipment that is disconnected from a power source but still connected to telephone wiring or other network cabling:

  • Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
  • Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for it.
  • Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line is disconnected at the network interface.
  • Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
  • Remove power cables from all installed power supplies before opening the chassis.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. It can occur if electronic printed circuit cards are improperly handled and can cause complete or intermittent failures. Always follow ESD prevention procedures when removing and replacing modules:

  • Ensure that the router chassis is electrically connected to ground.
  • Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it makes good skin contact. Connect the clip to an unpainted surface of the chassis frame to channel unwanted ESD voltages safely to ground. To guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and cord must operate effectively.
  • If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching a metal part of the chassis.

Caution For the safety of your equipment, periodically check the resistance value of the anti-static strap. It should be between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohm).

General Site Requirements

This section describes the requirements your site must meet for safe installation and operation of your router. Ensure that the site is properly prepared before beginning installation. If you are experiencing shutdowns or unusually high errors with your existing equipment, this section can also help you isolate the cause of failures and prevent future problems.

General Precautions

Observe the following general precautions when using and working with your Cisco ISR 4451-X.

  • Keep your system components away from radiators and heat sources and do not block cooling vents.
  • Do not spill food or liquids on your system components and never operate the product in a wet environment.
  • Do not push any objects into the openings of your system components. Doing so can cause fire or electric shock by shorting out interior components.
  • Position system cables and power supply cables carefully. Route system cables and the power supply cable and plug so that they cannot be stepped on or tripped over. Be sure that nothing else rests on your system component cables or power cable.
  • Do not modify power cables or plugs. Consult a licensed electrician or your power company for site modifications. Always follow your local and national wiring rules.
  • If you turn off your system, wait at least 30 seconds before turning it on again to avoid system component damage.

Site Selection Guidelines

The Cisco ISR 4400 Series and Cisco ISR 4300 Seriess require specific environmental operating conditions. Temperature, humidity, altitude, and vibration can affect the performance and reliability of the router. The following sections provide specific information to help you plan for the proper operating environment.

The Cisco ISR 4400 Series and Cisco ISR 4300 Seriess are designed to meet the industry EMC, safety, and environmental standards described in the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Cisco 4000 Series ISR s document.

Site Environmental Requirements

Environmental monitoring in the router protects the system and components from damage caused by excessive voltage and temperature conditions. To ensure normal operation and avoid unnecessary maintenance, plan and prepare your site configuration before installation. After installation, make sure the site maintains the environmental characteristics as shown in Table 2-1 .

  • Chassis width meets EIA-310 19-inch (17.25 inches/438.15 mm) wide with rack brackets
  • Cable-management brackets at each Cisco ISR 4451-X locations can hold 16 ports of STP/UTP RJ 45 cables
  • Cable-management brackets allow a bend radius of 1.5 inches for cables
  • Adjustable rack-mount brackets allow for a front to rear rail variance distance of 15.50/394mm to 19.00/482.6mm

Rack Requirements

Some Cisco routers include brackets for use with a 19-inch rack or, if specified in your order, optional larger brackets for use with a 23-inch rack.

The following information can help you plan your equipment rack configuration:

  • Allow clearance around the rack for maintenance.
  • Allow at least one rack unit of vertical space between routers.
  • Enclosed racks must have adequate ventilation. Ensure that the rack is not congested, because each router generates heat. An enclosed rack should have louvered sides and a fan to provide cooling air. Heat generated by equipment near the bottom of the rack can be drawn upward into the intake ports of the equipment above it.
  • When mounting a chassis in an open rack, ensure that the rack frame does not block the intake or exhaust ports. If the chassis is installed on slides, check the position of the chassis when it is seated in the rack.

Router Environmental Requirements

Cisco ISR 4451-Xs can be placed on a desktop or installed in a rack. The location of your router and the layout of your equipment rack or wiring room are extremely important considerations for proper operation. Equipment placed too close together, inadequate ventilation, and inaccessible panels can cause malfunctions and shutdowns, and can make maintenance difficult. Plan for access to both front and rear panels of the router.

When planning your site layout and equipment locations, refer to the “General Site Requirements” section, section. If you are currently experiencing shutdowns or an unusually high number of errors with your existing equipment, these precautions and recommendations may help you isolate the cause of failure and prevent future problems.

  • Ensure that the room where your router operates has adequate air circulation. Electrical equipment generates heat. Without adequate air circulation, ambient air temperature may not cool equipment to acceptable operating temperatures.
  • Always follow ESD-prevention procedures described in the “Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage” section to avoid damage to equipment. Damage from static discharge can cause immediate or intermittent equipment failure.
  • Ensure that the chassis cover and module rear panels are secure. All empty network module slots, interface card slots, and power supply bays must have filler panels installed. The chassis is designed to allow cooling air to flow within it, through specially designed cooling slots. A chassis with uncovered openings permits air leaks, which may interrupt and reduce the flow of air across internal components.
  • Baffles can help to isolate exhaust air from intake air, which also helps to draw cooling air through the chassis. The best placement of the baffles depends on the airflow patterns in the rack, which can be found by experimenting with different configurations.
  • When equipment installed in a rack (particularly in an enclosed rack) fails, try operating the equipment by itself, if possible. Power off other equipment in the rack (and in adjacent racks) to allow the router under test a maximum of cooling air and clean power.

Power Guidelines and Requirements

Check the power at your site to ensure that you are receiving “clean” power (free of spikes and noise). Install a power conditioner if necessary.

The AC power supply includes the following features:

  • Autoselects either 110 V or 220 V operation.
  • All units include a 6-foot (1.8-meter) electrical power cord. (A label near the power inlet indicates the correct voltage, frequency [AC-powered systems only], current draw, and power dissipation for the unit.)

Network Cabling Specifications

The following sections describe the cables needed to install your Cisco ISR 4451-X in the following sections:

Console and Auxiliary Port Considerations

The router includes an asynchronous serial console port and an auxiliary port. The console and auxiliary ports provide access to the router either locally using a console terminal connected to the console port, or remotely using a modem connected to the auxiliary port. This section discusses important cabling information to consider before connecting the router to a console terminal or modem.

The main difference between the console and auxiliary ports is that the auxiliary port supports hardware flow control and the console port does not. Flow control paces the transmission of data between a sending device and a receiving device. Flow control ensures that the receiving device can absorb the data sent to it before the sending device sends more. When the buffers on the receiving device are full, a message is sent to the sending device to suspend transmission until the data in the buffers has been processed. Because the auxiliary port supports flow control, it is ideally suited for use with the high-speed transmissions of a modem. Console terminals send data at speeds slower than modems do; therefore, the console port is ideally suited for use with console terminals.

Console Port Connections

The router has both EIA/TIA-232 asynchronous (RJ-45) and USB 5-pin mini Type B, 2.0 compliant serial console ports. The console ports do not have any hardware flow control. Shielded USB cables with properly terminated shields are recommended.

EIA/TIA-232

Depending on the cable and the adapter used, this port appears as a DTE or DCE device at the end of the cable. Only one port can be used at the same time.

The default parameters for the console port are 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. The console port does not support hardware flow control. For detailed information about installing a console terminal, see the “Connecting to a Console Terminal or Modem” section.

For cable and port pinouts, see the Cisco Modular Access Router Cable Specifications document located on Cisco.com.

USB Serial Console

The USB serial console port connects directly to the USB connector of a PC using a USB Type A to 5-pin mini USB Type-B cable. The USB Console supports full speed (12Mb/s) operation. The console port does not support hardware flow control.


Note Always use shielded USB cables with a properly terminated shield.


The default parameters for the console port are 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit. For detailed information about installing a console terminal, see the “Connecting to a Console Terminal or Modem” section.

For operation with a Microsoft Windows OS version older than Windows 7, the Cisco Windows USB Console Driver must be installed on any PC connected to the console port. If the driver is not installed, prompts guide you through a simple installation process. For detailed information about installing the Cisco Windows USB Console Driver see “Installing the Cisco Microsoft Windows USB Device Driver” section.

The Cisco Windows USB Console Driver allows plugging and unplugging the USB cable from the console port without affecting Windows HyperTerminal operations. No special drivers are needed for Mac OS X or Linux.

Only one console port can be active at a time. When a cable is plugged into the USB console port, the RJ-45 port becomes inactive. Conversely, when the USB cable is removed from the USB port, the RJ-45 port becomes active.

Baud rates for the USB console port are 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, and 115200 bps.


Note 4-pin mini USB Type-B connectors are easily confused with 5-pin mini USB Type-B connectors. Only the 5-pin mini USB Type-B is supported.


USB Console OS Compatibility

  • Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows 2000, Window XP 32 bit, Windows Vista 32 bit
  • Mac OS X version 10.5.4
  • Redhat / Fedora Core 10 with kernel 2.6.27.5-117
  • Ubuntu 8.10 with kernel 2.6.27-11
  • Debian 5.0 with kernel 2.6
  • Suse 11.1 with kernel 2.6.27.7-9

Auxiliary Port Connections

The router has an EIA/TIA-232 asynchronous serial auxiliary port (RJ-45) that supports flow control. Depending on the cable and the adapter used, this port appears as a DTE or DCE device at the end of the cable.

For connection to a modem, your must use an RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter cable. This cable is orderable separately along with a DB-9-to-DB-25 adapter.

For detailed information about connecting devices to the auxiliary port, see the “Connecting to a Console Terminal or Modem” section.

For cable and port pinouts, see the Cisco Modular Access Router Cable Specifications document at Cisco.com.

Preparing for Network Connections

When setting up your router, consider distance limitations and potential electromagnetic interference (EMI) as defined by the applicable local and international regulations.

Network connection considerations are provided for:

See the following online document for more information about network connections and interfaces:


Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both use RJ-45 connectors. Statement 1021


Ethernet Connections

The IEEE has established Ethernet as standard IEEE 802.3. The routers support the following Ethernet implementations:

  • 1000BASE-T—1000 Mb/s full-duplex transmission over a Category 5 or better unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable. Supports the Ethernet maximum length of 328 feet (100 meters).
