This chapter describes how to install the Cisco Integrated Communications System 7750 (Cisco ICS 7750) chassis. This chapter includes the following sections:

Mounting the System

This section provides mounting instructions for the Cisco ICS 7750 and the Catalyst switches, as follows:


Warning Two people are required to lift the chassis. To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back.

Chassis Dimensions

The Cisco ICS 7750 chassis dimensions are as follows:

  • Height: 15.75 in. (9U)
  • Width: 17.25 in.
  • Depth: 12.5 in.

The chassis is designed to be rack-mounted in a standard 19-inch rack.

Installing the Cable Management Bracket

The system ships with a cable management bracket (see Figure 3-1). You can attach the cable management bracket to the chassis with three supplied 6-32 x 0.375-inch Phillips screws. Figure 3-2 shows the system with an installed cable management bracket.

Rack Mounting

This section describes how to rack-mount the system chassis and refers you to documentation for rack-mounting the Catalyst switches.

You can mount the Cisco ICS 7750 in a standard 19-inch rack. This section describes how to front-mount or mid-mount the chassis in a rack.

The chassis is shipped with a rack-mounting kit that includes the following items:

  • Two rack-mount brackets
  • Eight Phillips screws (8-32 x 1/4 inch) to attach the brackets to the chassis
  • Eight Phillips screws (10-32 x 1/2 inch) to attach the brackets (and the chassis) to the rack

Tip Plan the system installation so that the weight of the equipment is evenly distributed in the rack and so that the heaviest units are toward the bottom of the rack.


Warning The plug-socket combination must be accessible at all times because it serves as the main disconnecting device.


Warning To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a rack, you must take special precautions to ensure that the system remains stable. The following guidelines are provided to ensure your safety:

  • This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack.
  • When mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top, with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack.
  • If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in the rack.

Caution   Use only the screws included in the rack-mount kit to install the system in a rack. Using screws other than those in the rack-mount kit, especially screws longer than one-half inch, can damage the chassis and its internal components.

Complete these steps to rack-mount the chassis.


Step 1   Use the 8-32 x 1/4-inch Phillips screws to attach the brackets in one of the two positions shown in Figure 3-3.

Step 2   Lift and slide the chassis into the front of the rack.

Step 3   Use the eight 10-32 x 1/2-inch Phillips screws to securely attach the brackets to the rack.

Step 4   Ground the chassis according to the instructions in the "Grounding the System" section.






Figure 3-3   Rack-Mount Bracket Locations


Desktop Mounting

This section describes how to install the Cisco ICS 7750 on a desktop and how to use the included desktop-mounting kit to stack as many as two Catalyst switches on top of the chassis.

You need the following items for a desktop installation:

  • Number-1 Phillips screwdriver
  • Four rubber feet (in the hardware accessory kit)
  • Desktop stacking kit (in the hardware accessory kit), which includes the following items:
    • Two chassis-to-switch brackets (shown in Figure 3-4) for connecting a Catalyst switch to the top of the Cisco ICS 7750 chassis.
    • Two switch-to-switch brackets (shown in Figure 3-4) for connecting a second switch to a switch stacked on top of the Cisco ICS 7750 chassis.
    • Eight Phillips 8 x 0.375-inch screws to attach the brackets to the switches.
    • Two Phillips 8-32 x 1/4-inch screws to attach the brackets to the chassis.Do not stack the chassis on any other equipment. If the chassis falls, it can cause severe bodily injury and equipment damage.

Figure 3-4   Desktop Mounting Brackets (One of Each Type Shown)


Affixing Rubber Feet to the Chassis

Follow these steps to prepare the chassis for a desktop installation.


Warning Two people are required to lift the chassis. To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back.


Step 1   Starting with the chassis resting on a flat surface, tilt the chassis back until the bottom is exposed.

Step 2   Attach the rubber feet to the four recessed areas (one at each corner) on the bottom of the chassis, to prevent the chassis from sliding across a surface.

Step 3   Place the chassis on a flat, secure surface.





Stacking Switches on the Chassis

You can stack two Catalyst switches on the Cisco ICS 7750 in a desktop configuration. Use the two chassis-to-switch brackets (see Figure 3-4) to attach the first Catalyst switch to the top of the chassis, as shown in Figure 3-5. To add another switch on top of the first switch, use the two switch-to-switch brackets (see Figure 3-4) to attach the additional switch, as shown in Figure 3-6.


Caution   If you are using more than two switches with the Cisco ICS 7750, mount the chassis and the switches in a rack. For instructions on rack-mounting the Cisco ICS 7750, see the "Rack Mounting" section. For instructions on rack-mounting Catalyst switches, refer to the "Installation" chapter in the installation guide that came with the switch.

Power Supply Use Guidelines

This section describes guidelines for using power supplies with the Cisco ICS 7750.

  • One uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can support one of the following configurations:
    • One Cisco ICS 7750 and two Catalyst switches
    • Three Cisco ICS 7750 systems (no Catalyst switches)
    • Three Catalyst switches
  • One Cisco Redundant Power Supply (RPS) 300 provides redundant power for one Catalyst switch.
  • One dedicated wall power-outlet can support one of the following configurations:
    • One Cisco ICS 7750 and two Catalyst switches
    • Three Cisco ICS 7750 systems (no Catalyst switches)

Figure 3-7 shows a recommended power configuration that uses two UPSs and an RPS 300 to provide backup power to the Cisco ICS 7750 and to five connected Catalyst 3524-PWR XL switches.

Grounding the System

You must ground the system before installing any processor cards and before powering on the chassis. Follow the electrical wiring guidelines in this section to make sure that the system is correctly grounded.


Warning This equipment needs to be grounded. Use a green and yellow 14 AWG ground wire to connect the host to earth ground during normal use.


Warning When installing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last.

Electrical Panel Configuration

Before grounding the chassis (and the UPS, if required), verify that your electrical AC panel is configured as shown in Figure 3-8, to ensure that your system can be correctly grounded and powered.


Figure 3-8   Electrical (AC) Panel Configuration


Possible Grounding Configurations

There are two possible grounding configurations for the Cisco ICS 7750:

In this configuration, the Cisco ICS 7750 is grounded to the wall outlet. The supplementary ground connector ensures that, in case the UPS fails or is accidentally unplugged, the Cisco ICS 7750 remains safely grounded.

In this configuration, the Cisco ICS 7750 is grounded to the wall outlet only. Because there is no backup power system, no grounding redundancy is required.


Figure 3-9   Grounding the System—UPS



Figure 3-10   Grounding the System—No UPS


Grounding Procedure

For this procedure, you need to provide a number-14 American Wire Gauge (AWG) grounding wire. The Cisco ICS 7750 should use single-point grounding: All grounding connections should be made with the same ground wire.

Complete the following steps to ground the chassis:


Step 1   Loosen the nut on the grounding lug on the rear of the chassis.


Figure 3-11   Grounding Lug Location


Step 2   Connect the ground wire to the grounding lug.

Step 3   Tighten the nut on the grounding lug. If you are not using a UPS, skip to Step 5.

Step 4   Connect the ground wire to the grounding lug on the UPS.

Step 5   Connect the ground wire to the electrical (AC) outlet.

Step 6   Power on the chassis according to the "Power Supply Use Guidelines" section.





Connecting to Card Ports

This section describes how to connect to processor card ports, as follows:


Caution   Do not connect the system switch processor (SSP) Ethernet ports (labeled 1x and 2x) to your Ethernet network until you have successfully completed the initial configuration program as described in the "Running the Initial Configuration Program" section. Do not remove the sticker covering the Ethernet ports on the SSP until directed to do so.


Caution   Do not remove the panel that covers an empty chassis slot until you are ready to install a card in the slot. An empty slot without a panel can cause an airflow problem that affects system cooling. After you remove a panel to install a card, save the panel in case you need to use it later to cover an empty slot.


Note   To easily manage cables that are connected to the system, install the cards that have the greatest number of connected cables as far left in the chassis as possible. For example, an MRP300 with two 2-port WICs might be installed in slot 1, to prevent the cables connected to the card from obscuring the front panels of other cards.

Typical Configuration

The Cisco ICS 7750 can contain different combinations of cards and power supply modules. Figure 3-12 shows one possible system configuration, and Table 3-2 describes the components in this configuration. The procedures described in this document are based on the configuration shown in Figure 3-12. Before you begin the installation, take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the system configuration shown in Figure 3-12 and the system components listed in Table 3-2.

    • Belkin 4-Port USB Hub

USB devices that require installation of additional software or non-native Windows 2000 drivers will probably not work with the ICS 7750, and therefore Cisco recommends against trying to use them.


Note   USB devices not listed here may work with the SPE310, but Cisco cannot guarantee that they will.

MRP, ASI81, and MRP3-8FXS Connections

MRP, ASI81, and MRP3-8FXS connections vary, depending on the WICs, VICs, andVWICs that are installed in the system cards. The following are some connection examples:

  • T1/E1 WIC—Use a serial cable (DB-60) to connect this type of card to the wall jack that provides WAN data services to your Cisco ICS 7750.
  • T1/E1 VIC or T1/E1 VWIC—Use a straight-through RJ-48C-to-RJ-48C cable to connect this type of card to the PSTN (or to a legacy PBX).

  • Note   In countries in which PSTNs do not use RJ-11 wall outlets, use a suitable adapter to convert the plug on an RJ-11 modular cable to the type of wall outlet connector used locally. These adapters are not sold by Cisco Systems, but the adapters are available from other vendors.

  • FXO—Use a standard modular telephone cable (RJ-11) to connect this type of card to the PSTN, to a legacy PBX, or to a combination of both.
  • FXS—Use a standard modular telephone cable (RJ-11) to connect this type of card to analog devices, such as telephones, fax machines, or teleconferencing stations.

  • Note   For additional information about connections, refer to the Cisco Interface Cards Installation Guide.

SSP Connections

Remove the sticker covering the Ethernet 10/100 ports on the SSP (labeled 1x and 2x) and use the supplied straight-through Ethernet cable (yellow) to connect the network interface card (NIC) on your PC to either one of the SSP Ethernet ports.


Caution   Do not connect the SSP Ethernet ports (labeled 1x and 2x) to your Ethernet network until you have successfully completed the initial configuration program as described in the "Running the Initial Configuration Program" section.

SAP Connections

This section describes how to connect to the system alarm processor (SAP) ports.

SAP Console Port

You can use the supplied EIA/TIA-232 rollover cable to connect a display device or a modem to the SAP console port. This connection enables configuration of the Cisco ICS 7750 by means of the command-line interface (CLI). There are two ways to make this connection:

  • Display device—Connect to a PC COM port (using the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter) or to a terminal (using the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter).
  • Modem—Connect to a modem (using the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter) to enable a dial-up connection (9600 baud, maximum). You can communicate with the Cisco ICS 7750 remotely by using the CLI through a dial-up connection. (For additional information about using a modem with the Cisco ICS 7750, see the "Connecting a Modem" section.)

SAP COM Ports

You can use an Electronic Industries Alliance/Telecommunication Industry Association (EIA/TIA-232) rollover cable to connect the SAP COM ports to enable the system to monitor a UPS, to integrate with an external legacy voice-mail system, or to enable remote access to the Cisco ICS 7700 System Manager software, as follows:

  • UPS—Using the EIA/TIA-232 cable that came with your APC Smart-UPS and an RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter, connect the UPS serial port (on the rear of the unit) to the SAP COM1 port. Refer to the Cisco ICS 7750 Troubleshooting Guide for instructions on how to configure the software on the Cisco ICS 7750 to support UPS monitoring.

Tip An alternative UPS configuration is to use the straight-through Ethernet cable that came with your APC Smart-UPS to directly connect the UPS Ethernet port (on the rear of the unit) to an available 10/100 port on an Ethernet switch that is connected to the SSP.


Note    If you are using a UPS other than the APC Smart-UPS, you might not be able to monitor its status through the Cisco ICS 7750.

  • Voice mail—Connect the Simplified Message Desk Interface (SMDI) port on a legacy voice-mail system to the COM1 or COM2 port on the SAP. (On the Octel 250, connect to the appropriate serial port on the CF card, using a DB-25-to-DB-9 connector.)

Note    An alternative way to connect to legacy voice mail is to connect an available port on an Ethernet switch that is connected to your Cisco ICS 7750 to an IP telephony-enabled router, such as a Cisco Voice Gateway 200 (VG200), as described in the "Alternative Legacy Voice-Mail Connection" section. This connection makes an SAP COM port available for remote System Manager access or for connecting to a UPS.

  • Remote System Manager dial-up access—Connect a modem (using the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter) to the COM1 port on the SAP to enable remote dial-up access to the Cisco ICS System Manager software. Refer to the "Connecting a Modem" section for instructions on connecting a modem.

Alternative Legacy Voice-Mail Connection

Instead of directly connecting your Cisco ICS 7750 to a legacy voice-mail system, you can connect system Ethernet switches to the legacy voice-mail system. The procedure below explains how to connect to an Octel 250 voice-mail system:


Step 1   Use a 25-pair amphenol cable to connect one of the ports on the FLT-8 card on the Octel 250 to a patch panel.

Step 2   Each of the eight ports on the FLT-8 card supports 25 users. Connect additional ports on the FLT-8 to the patch panel as needed.

Step 3   Connect the patch panel to an IP telephony-enabled router, such as a VG200.

Step 4   Connect the router to an available Ethernet port on a switch that is connected to your Cisco ICS 7750.

Ensure that the Ethernet switch is connected to the SSP on the Cisco ICS 7750, as described in "SSP Connections" section.


Note    If using a VG200, note that the VG200 supports 100 users. If you have more than 100 users, repeat Step 3 and Step 4 for an additional VG200.





Connecting Power and Turning On the System

After you have installed the system chassis and connected the subsystem cards as described in "Preparing to Install the Cisco ICS 7750," and you are ready to connect power, follow the procedures in this section.

Figure 3-15 shows a recommended power configuration that uses a UPS to provide backup power to the Cisco ICS 7750 and that uses a Cisco RPS 300 to connect to two Catalyst 3524-PWR XL switches.


Note   For information about other power configurations, see the "Power Supply Use Guidelines" section.


Figure 3-15   Recommended Power Configuration with up to Two Catalyst Switches


Connecting Power to the System

Complete the following steps to connect power to the system:


Step 1   Connect one or both of the power supply modules in the Cisco ICS 7750 to an AC power outlet on the UPS.


Tip For high availability when using two power supply modules, plug one power supply module into the UPS, and plug the other power supply module into a dedicated wall outlet, as shown in Figure 3-15.

Step 2   If you are using the Cisco RPS 300 in your system, connect the RPS connector on the first Catalyst switch to any of the DC outlet connectors on the RPS. Repeat this step for each Catalyst switch connected to the Cisco ICS 7750.


Note    Each RPS provides redundant power to only one Catalyst switch at a time. If a switch power supply fails and the RPS provides power to the switch, that RPS cannot support any additional failed switches. For absolute redundancy, each switch must have its own RPS.

Step 3   Connect the AC power connector on the first Catalyst switch to any AC power connector on the UPS. Repeat this step for each Catalyst switch connected to the Cisco ICS 7750.

Step 4   If you are using the Cisco RPS 300 as part of your system, make one of the following connections:

  • Connect the AC power connector on the RPS to any AC power connector on the UPS.
  • Connect the AC power connector on the RPS to a dedicated wall outlet.

The RPS starts up after Step 4.

Step 5   Use the supplied power cables to connect the power supply modules (one or two) to one of the power sockets on the UPS.

Step 6   Plug the connector on the UPS into a wall outlet at your site.





Powering On the System

Complete the following steps to turn on the system power:


Step 1   Press the UPS power button on the front panel. The UPS turns on.

Step 2   For one or both of the power supply modules installed in your system, press the power supply switch to on ( | ).





Verifying System Installation

After you have connected the chassis to a power source and turned the system on, you can verify that the system is functioning correctly by checking particular LEDs on the processor cards and power supply modules.

To verify that the Cisco ICS 7750 is correctly installed and running, verify that the LEDs are functioning as described in Table 3-3.


Note   The ALARM LED on system cards turns yellow during the power-on self-test (POST). If the ALARM LED on any card does not go off at the completion of POST, that card is not functioning correctly. Refer to the "Solving Hardware Problems" chapter in the Cisco ICS 7750 Troubleshooting Guide .
