Figure 2 1-Port Fast Ethernet 2-Port Channelized T1 Network Module

Connecting Fast Ethernet Channelized T1 Modules

Use the following sections for Fast Ethernet and PRI connections.

Fast Ethernet Port

Use a straight-through two-pair Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable to connect the RJ-45 port on the Fast Ethernet-PRI network module to a switch, hub, repeater, server, or other network device. These ports are color-coded yellow. Figure 3 shows the RJ-45 port connected to a hub.


Note RJ-45 cables are not available from Cisco Systems. These cables are widely available and must be Category 5 cables.

Fast Ethernet Port

To connect the Fast Ethernet port, see the "Fast Ethernet Port" section.

CE1/PRI-B Port

Use the appropriate cable to connect a CE1/PRI-B (120-ohm) port to an E1 CSU. (See Figure 10, Figure 11, and Figure 12, showing DB-15, twinax, and RJ-45 CSUs respectively.) These ports are color-coded tan.

Figure 12 Connecting a CE1/PRI-B Port to an E1 CSU (DB-15-to-RJ-45 Connectors)

CE1/PRI-U Port

Use the appropriate cable to connect a CE1/PRI-U (75-ohm) port to an E1 CSU. Figure 13 shows a CSU with BNC connectors. These ports are color-coded tan.

Setting Interfaces to Balanced or Unbalanced Termination

This section describes how to configure an E1 network module for balanced or unbalanced termination. The module consists of two circuit boards, or cards. A terminal block and a set of five jumpers are provided on each card to configure termination. Figure 14 shows these terminal blocks.


Caution To avoid damaging electrostatic discharge (ESD)-sensitive components, observe all ESD precautions when handling the circuit boards.

Figure 14 Terminal Block Locations


Note The position of the jumpers is different on the two terminal blocks. See Figure 14 and the silk screening on the network module to ensure the correct jumper position.


Figure 15 shows a typical jumper.

Figure 15 Jumper

Configuring Unbalanced Mode

To configure the network module for unbalanced mode, follow these steps:


Step 1 Turn off electrical power to the router. However, to channel ESD voltages to ground, do not unplug the power cable. Remove all network interface cables, including telephone cables, from the rear panel.

The following warning applies to routers that use a DC power supply:


Warning Before performing any of the following procedures, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position. Statement 7


Step 2 Loosen the module captive mounting screws, using a Phillips or flat-blade screwdriver.

Step 3 Hold the captive screws between two fingers, and pull the network module toward you until it slides free of the chassis.

Step 4 Set the network module on an ESD-preventive mat.

Step 5 Using needlenose pliers, set jumpers J5 through J9 on the top terminal block to the 75-ohm position. Set jumpers J4 through J8 on the bottom terminal block to the same 75-ohm position. (See Figure 16.)

Figure 16 Jumper Insertion

Figure 17 shows the top terminal block set to unbalanced (75-ohm) position.

Figure 17 Jumpers in Unbalanced 75-Ohm Position (Top Card)

Step 6 Align the network module with the guides in the chassis and slide it gently into the slot.

Step 7 Push the module into place until you feel its edge connector mate securely with the connector on the motherboard.

Step 8 Fasten the module captive mounting screws into the holes in the chassis, using the Phillips or flat-blade screwdriver.

Step 9 If the router was previously running, reinstall the network interface cables and turn on power to the router.

The following warning applies to routers that use a DC power supply:


Warning After wiring the DC power supply, remove the tape from the circuit breaker switch handle and reinstate power by moving the handle of the circuit breaker to the ON position. Statement 8

Fast Ethernet-PRI Module LEDs

All network modules have an enable (EN) LED. This LED indicates that the module has passed its self-tests and is available to the router.

All Fast Ethernet-PRI modules have four LEDS for the Fast Ethernet port, and four additional LEDs for each PRI port. Figure 18 shows LEDs for the 1-port Fast Ethernet 2-port channelized E1/ISDN PRI balanced (120-ohm) network module as an example.
