Catalyst 4000 Family Access Gateway Module DSP Upgrade Installation Note
WS-X4604-DSP(=) Catalyst 4000 DSP Set, 4x6 DSP SIMMs for AGM
WS-X4604-GWY(=) Catalyst 4000 Family Access Gateway Module
This configuration note contains procedures for installing digital signal processor (DSP) cards on the Catalyst 4000 family access gateway module.
This document contains the following sections:
The following tools are required to remove and replace the DSPs:
•Antistatic mat or foam pad to support the removed supervisor engine
•Flat-blade screwdriver to remove any filler (blank) modules and to tighten the captive installation screws that secure the supervisor engine in its slot
•A wrist strap or other grounding device to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage
Avoiding Problems When Installing and Removing Modules
The ejector levers on switching modules align and seat the module connectors in the backplane (see Figure 1). If you fail to use the ejector levers to insert the module, you can disrupt the order in which the pins contact the backplane. Follow the removal and replacement instructions carefully.
When removing a module, use the ejector levers to ensure that the module connector pins disconnect from the backplane properly. Any supervisor engine or switching module that is only partially connected to the backplane can disrupt the system.
For detailed instructions on removing and installing supervisor engines, see the Catalyst 4003 and 4006 Switch Installation Guide.

Safety warnings appear throughout this note in procedures that may harm you if performed incorrectly. A warning symbol precedes each warning statement.
Warning Before you install, operate, or service the system, read the Site Preparation and Safety Guide. This guide contains important safety information you should know before working with the system.
Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install or replace this equipment
Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself.
Removing the Access Gateway Module
Caution To prevent ESD damage, handle switching modules by the carrier edges only.
To remove an access gateway module from a Catalyst 4000 family switch, perform these steps:
Step 1 Disconnect any network interface cables attached to the ports on the switching module that you intend to remove.
Step 2 Loosen the captive installation screws, as shown in Figure 1.
Step 3 Grasp the left and right ejector levers and simultaneously pivot the levers outward to release the switching module from the backplane connector.
Figure 1 shows a close-up of the right ejector lever.
Step 4 Grasp the access gateway module front panel with one hand and place your other hand under the carrier to support and guide it out of the slot. Do not touch the printed circuit boards or connector pins.
Step 5 Carefully pull the access gateway module straight out of the slot, keeping your other hand under the carrier to guide it.
Step 6 Place the access gateway module on an antistatic mat or antistatic foam.
Installing the DSPs
The DSPs must be fastened to the access gateway module (see Figure 2). After you remove the access gateway module from the Catalyst 4000 family switch, you can install the DSPs.
Caution Always use an ESD wrist strap when handling modules or coming into contact with internal components.
Figure 2 Access Gateway Module DSP Slots
Caution Handle the DSP by its edges only; avoid touching the memory module, pins, or traces (the metal fingers along the connector edge of the DSP). DSPs are sensitive components that are susceptible to ESD damage, and can be shorted by mishandling.
To install the DSPs, perform the following steps:
Step 1 Remove a DSP from its package, holding it by its edges, and carefully insert it into the connector (see Figure 3).
Step 2 While gently pressing the DSP into the connector, tilt the DSP to the vertical position until it clicks into place.
Step 3 Repeat the procedure for each of the remaining three DSPs.
Figure 3 Installing the DSPs
Installing the Access Gateway Module
All Catalyst 4000 family switching modules are installed in horizontal chassis slots that are numbered from top to bottom.
Caution To prevent ESD damage, handle the access gateway modules by the carrier edges only.
To install the access gateway module in a Catalyst 4000 family switch, perform these steps:
Step 1 Take the necessary precautions to prevent ESD damage.
Step 2 Choose a slot for the new access gateway module.
Be sure that you have enough clearance to accommodate any interface equipment that you will connect directly to the access gateway module ports.
Step 3 To install the access gateway module, hold the switching module front panel with one hand, and place your other hand under the carrier to support the module, as shown in Figure 4. Do not touch the printed circuit boards or connector pins.
Step 4 Align the edges of the access gateway module carrier with the slot guides on the sides of the switch chassis, as shown in Figure 4.
Figure 4 Installing the Access Gateway Module in the Chassis
Step 5 Pivot the two module ejector levers out away from the faceplate.
Step 6 Carefully slide the access gateway module into the slot until the notches on both ejector levers engage the chassis sides.
Step 7 Using the thumb and forefinger of each hand, simultaneously pivot in both ejector levers to fully seat the access gateway module in the backplane connector.
Caution Always use the ejector levers when installing or removing access gateway modules. A module that is partially seated in the backplane will cause the system to halt and reset. Make sure the ejectors are locked when the module is in the slot.
Step 8 Use a screwdriver to tighten the captive installation screws on each end of the access gateway module faceplate.
Standards Compliance Specifications
When installed in a system, the Catalyst 4000 family modules comply with the standards listed in Table 1.
Table 1 Standards Compliance Specifications
Item Specification Compliance
1 CE = European Compliance
2 UL = Underwriters Laboratory
3 CSA = Canadian Standards Association
4 EN = European Norm
5 IEC = International Electrotechnical Commission
6 TS = technical specifications
7 AS/NZS = Australia Standards/New Zealand Standards
8 EMC = electromagnetic compatibility
9 FCC = Federal Communications Commission

FCC Class A Compliance
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
•Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
•Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
•Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
•Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate this product.
