Before installing lan switches on a workbench, ensure that:
- The workbench is strong to bear switches lan and cables.
- No obstruction that affects lan switch installation exists in or around the workbench.
- Lan switches are ready to install. They are placed near the workbench and are easy to move.
- Paste rubber foot pads.
Paste the foot pads to the four feet at the bottom of each switch lan.
- Install switches lan on the workbench.
Lift a switch lan to a position that is a little higher than the workbench and place the lan switching in the middle of the workbench.
Lan Switch Configuration Rules
If the work mode of the network interface of the eSpace U2980 is different from the work mode of the connected lan switching network interface, problems such as packet loss and disconnection may occur, which may affect proper running of the device and bring potential security risks. To ensure the stable operation of on-line devices and avoid risks, configure the work mode of the eSpace U2980 network interface and the connected switch lan port based on the specifications specified in this topic.
Onsite engineers must install lan switches based on the requirements in the following table before installing software.
|Local Device||Board||Port Work Mode||Local Port Work Mode||Peer Device||Peer Port Work Mode|
|MGC/MRP||GPU||Auto||1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex||LAN Switch||Auto/1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex|
|MSU||Auto||1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex||LAN Switch||Auto/1000 Mbit/s Full Duplex|
|OMU||Auto||1000M Auto Duplex||LAN Switch||Auto/1000M Auto Duplex|
|FS||-||Auto||1000M Auto Duplex||LAN Switch||Auto/1000M Auto Duplex|
|CTI||-||Auto||1000M Auto Duplex||LAN Switch||Auto/1000M Auto Duplex|
Cascading network interfaces must be aggregated to ensure smooth communication between two lan switches and sufficient bandwidth for communication planes in the case of large-scale networking and improve network reliability. Generally, you are advised to aggregate four network interfaces.
Lan Switch Configuration Command
This command is used to query the configuration information on a switch lan in the configuration database.
- To query for the data records of all the lan switches, do not set any parameter.
- To query for the data record of a specified lan switch, set lan switch ID.
