All 10/100/1000 ports use standard RJ-45 connectors and Ethernet pinouts.
SFP Module Connectors
The switch has two
console ports: a USB 5-pin mini-Type B port on the front panel and an RJ-45
console port on the rear panel.
The USB console
port uses a USB Type A to 5-pin mini-Type B cable. The USB Type A-to-USB
mini-Type B cable is not supplied. You can order an accessory kit (part number
800-33434) that contains this cable.
console port uses an 8-pin RJ-45 connection. The supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter
cable is used to connect the console port of the switch to a console PC. You
need to provide a RJ-45-to-DB-25 female DTE adapter if you want to connect the
switch console port to a terminal.
Cables and Adapters
Transceiver Module Network Cables
specifications, refer to the following notes:
Each port must match the wavelength specifications on the other end of the cable, and the cable must not exceed the stipulated
cable length. Copper 1000BASE-T SFP module transceivers use standard four twisted-pair, Category 5 cable at lengths up to
328 feet (100 meters).
To identify a
crossover cable, compare the two modular ends of the cable. Hold the cable ends
side-by-side, with the tab at the back. The wire connected to the pin on the
outside of the left plug should be a different color from the wire connected to
the pin on the inside of the right plug.
Console Port Adapter Pinouts
The RS-232 console port uses an 8-pin RJ-45 connector. Use an RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter cable to connect the switch console port
to a console PC. You need to provide a RJ-45-to-DB-25 female DTE adapter to connect the switch console port to a terminal.
