Section 1

Introduction

The Model S72450 24-port Switch is a 24-port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet switch. This switch supports the advanced features for current switch design. This switch can auto detect 10/100Mbps speed, full/half duplex mode, MDI/MDI-X connection and provides an option for one 100BaseFX expansion module port. This feature provides the user a simple way to complete the network connection with the switch.

The Model S72450 24-port Switch provides console management functions. You can configure the switch from the console for VLAN setting, port setting and priority setting. The switch supports CoS function for advanced network applications. The switch also supports 2 priority transmit queues per port and long Ethernet packets of up to 1522 bytes for tagged packets.

1.1 Package Contents

 

    • One 24-port Switch
    • One AC power cord
    • Two rack-mount kits and screws
    • This user's guide
    • One console cable

 

Section 2

INSTALLATION


2.1 Where to Place the 24-port Switch

This 24-port Switch can be placed on a flat surface (your desk, shelf or table).

Place the 24-port Switch at a location with these connection considerations in mind:

    • The switch configuration does not break the rules as specified in Section 3.
    • The switch is accessible and cables can be connected easily to it.
    • The cables connected to the switch are away from sources of electrical interference such as radio, computer monitor, and light fixtures.
    • There is sufficient space surrounding the switch to allow for proper ventilation (the switch may not function according to specifications beyond the temperature range of 0 to 50 degrees C).

You can also install this 24-port Switch in a 19" rack with rack-mount kits as shown below:

 


SECTION 3

Configure the Network Connection


3.1 Connecting Devices to the 24-port Switch

    • Use Category 3 or 5 twisted-pair Ethernet cable when connecting 10BaseT devices to the switch (cable pin assignments defined in Appendix A)
    • Use Category 5 (straight-through) twisted-pair Ethernet cable when connecting 100BaseTX devices to the switch (cable specifications defined in Appendix B)
    • Always limit the cable distance to 100 meters (328 ft) as defined by IEEE specification
    • If your switch has a FX port, you can connect long distance fiber optic cable to the switch.
    • Because this switch supports Auto MDI/MDI-X detection, you can use normal straight through cable for both workstation connection and hub/switch cascading.

     

3.2 Connecting to Another Ethernet Switch/Hub

This 24-port Switch can be connected to existing 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps hubs/switches. Because all of the TP ports on the 24-port Switch are Auto MDI/MDI-X, you can connect from any TP port of the 24-port Switch to the MDI or MDI-X port of another hub/switch with Straight Through or crossover cables.

 

3.3 Application Example

A switch can be used to overcome the hub-to-hub connectivity limitations as well as improve the overall network performance. Switches make intelligent decisions about where to send network traffic based on the destination address of the packet. As a result, the switch can significantly reduce unnecessary traffic.

The example below demonstrates the switch ability to segment the network. The number of nodes on each segment is reduced thereby minimizing network contention (collisions) and boosting the available bandwidth per port.


 

 

SECTION 4

For 100BaseFX Module


4.1 Adding 100BaseFX Module

This 24-port switch has a module port for a 100BaseFX connection extension. You can add one 100BaseFX module to the switch for long distance fiber optic cable connection. But when this module is added, the 24th TP port will be disabled and this FX port becomes the 24th port.

 

Please follow the steps to add the module to the switch:

1. Turn off the switch

2. Loosen the screws of the blank cover and remove the cover from the module port of the switch.

3. Slide in the module into the module port.

4. Tighten the screws of the module to the switch.

5. Connect the fiber optic cable to the FX port of the module.

6. Power on the switch.

7. Refer to Section 6 to configure Port 24 to (Auto-Disable, 100Mbps, Full duplex) for 100BaseFX connection from the console.

 

SECTION 5

SECTION 6

Configure from Console


6.1 Console Hardware Setting

Before using the console connection to configure the switch, please make sure that you have already installed the terminal program "HyperTrm" in your MS Windows operating software. If you cannot find it in your Windows please install it first with your Windows Installation Disk. You can also use other terminal programs for console setting if you already have one.

    1. Please connect from the console port of the Switch to COM port of the PC (COM1 or COM2) with the attached console cable.
    2. Start the terminal program. Select the COM port on the PC and set the operation configuration to [9600,8,N,1] and the terminal interface to Auto.
    3. Power on the switch and the following screen will appear on your terminal screen. If you cannot find it, please restart the terminal program and reboot the switch.

There are five items in the setup menu. You can select one and following the directions to complete the setting.

6.2 Console Operation

1. System Setting :

There is only one item in this function. You can enable or disable the backpressure function for half-duplex. If it is enabled, it can prevent packets lost in half-duplex mode. But it will also reject packets when the network traffic is very heavy and that may cause some network connections to fail.

2. Port Setting:

You can set the operation speed and duplex mode from here. If “Auto-Negotiation” is enabled then the settings in speed and duplex will be ignored. If “Auto-Negotiation” is disabled then the speed and duplex setting will take effect.

3. VLAN Setting:

You can configure VLAN groups from this function. Because every port must belong to some VLAN, the removed port from VLAN will be assigned to Group 24 automatically if it does not belong to any VLAN any more after being removed. In the setting, VLAN groups can be overlapped on ports in this switch.

4. Priority Setting:
 

There are two transmit priority queues for each port of the switch and you can configure the priority setting here.

Port Based : If the setting of a port is set to H then all the packets received from this port will always be forwarded to the high priority queue and will be sent with high priority.

VLAN Based : If the setting of a port is set to E then tagged packets received from this sport will be forwarded with a the priority information in the tag.

5. Restore Default Setting :

You can restore to the default setting of the switch with this function.
