Installing and Removing the Connected Grid DSL GRWICs

This section describes how to install and remove a Connected Grid DSL GRWIC in the Cisco CGR 2010 router and includes the following topics:

Safety Warnings

This section includes the basic installation warning statements. For regulatory compliance and safety information for the Cisco CGR 2010, refer to the Connected Grid Router 2000 Series Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/2000/CGR2010/hardware/rcsi/rcsiCGR2000series.html


Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment. Statement 1030

Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. Statement 1001

Warning Read the installation instructions before connecting the system to the power source. Statement 1004

Warning Hazardous network voltages are present in WAN ports regardless of whether power to the unit is OFF or ON. To avoid electric shock, use caution when working near WAN ports. When detaching cables, detach the end away from the unit first. Statement 1026

Installing a Connected Grid Single-Wide DSL GRWIC

All of the Connected Grid DSL GRWICs are single-wide interface cards. The router can accommodate four single-wide GRWICs or two single-wide GRWICs with one double-wide GRWIC, or two double-wide GRWICs at any one time.

A single-wide GRWIC installs in to one of four slots on the cable side of the router.

Each GRWIC is enclosed within a carrier enclosure with bars that extend outward from the front panel (see Figure 5).

Figure 5 Side View of GRWIC Carrier Enclosure

To install a single-wide GRWIC, follow these steps:


Step 1 Stand the GRWIC on end to slide the single-wide GRWIC in to the router slot (see Figure 6).

Figure 6 Installing a Single-wide GRWIC in the Cisco 2010 Router

Step 2 Tighten the three captive screws on the front of the GRWIC (see Figure 7).

Figure 7 Front View of GRWIC Within Carrier Enclosure


Note When installing multiple GRWICs at a time, the GRWICS must overlap as seen in Figure 8.


Figure 8 Installing Multiple GRWICs


Removing a Connected Grid Single-Wide DSL GRWIC


Caution The module CANNOT be hot swapped—to install the module, you must first power down the system.


Step 1 Using a screwdriver, loosen the three captive screws on the Connected Grid DSL GRWIC.

Step 2 Gently pull the module out of the slot.


Connecting Connected Grid DSL GRWICs to the Network

To connect the DSL GRWICs to the network, use a standard RJ-11 straight-through cable to establish connection between the GRWIC and the network device.

Table 5 shows the ADSL/ADSL2/2+/VDSL2 GRWIC pinouts.

Note If you are connecting an ADSL interface card to an RJ-11 wall jack that has the DSL pair wired for pins 2 and 5, you must use an RJ-11 crossover cable (lavender with blue stripe). The RJ-11 crossover cable can be ordered separately as a spare.
