Port Description

100M/1000M/2.5GE/5GE/10GE BASE-T port (MultiGE port)

A 100M/1000M/2.5GE/5GE/10GE BASE-T port (MultiGE port) sends and receives service data at 100 Mbit/s, 1 Gbit/s, 2.5 Gbit/s, 5 Gbit/s, or 10 Gbit/s, and must use an Ethernet cable. If the 2.5 Gbit/s, 5 Gbit/s, or 10 Gbit/s speed is required, the port must use an Ethernet cable of Cat5e or higher category. Table 5-80 describes the attributes of a 100M/1000M/2.5GE/5GE/10GE BASE-T port.

6-a-1 stands for the six-around-one cable bundle mode, with one cable in the center and six cables bundled evenly around it.

Some cables pose high risks and are not recommended for the following reasons:
  • 802.3bz requires that the ALSNR value for alien crosstalk between Ethernet cables be greater than 0, but the standards for Cat5e and Cat6 unshielded twisted pairs do not specify the required ALSNR value. Therefore, such cables may not meet the crosstalk requirement in 802.3bz, causing severe problems such as continuous packet loss.
  • According the cabling specification TIA TSB-5021, using Cat5e and Cat6 cables for 5G poses high risks.
  • Currently, no clear onsite testing or evaluation method is available for checking whether ALSNR of cables conforms to 802.3bz.

If Cat5e and Cat6 unshielded twisted pairs do not meet the 5G requirement, you are advised to replace them with shielded twisted pairs or reduce the rate of interfaces to 2.5G.

10GE SFP+ port

A 10GE SFP+ Ethernet optical port supports auto-sensing to 1000 Mbit/s. It sends and receives service data at 1000 Mbit/s or 10 Gbit/s. Table 5-82 describes the attributes of a 10GE SFP+ Ethernet optical port.

ETH management port

You can connect a switch to a configuration terminal or network management workstation through the ETH management port to configure the switch locally or remotely. The port must use an Ethernet cable. You can choose to download the software package through the ETH management port in the BootLoad menu.

In V200R012C00 and later versions, you can log in to the switch that contains the ETH management port for the first time through the ETH port. For details, see "First Login to a Switch" in the Configuration Guide - Basic Configuration. If you have logged in to the device for the first time by pressing and holding the MODE button for 6 seconds or longer and saved the configuration, the default configuration on the ETH port will be cleared. In this case, you cannot log in to the switch for the first time through the ETH port. You are advised to log in to the switch for the first time through the ETH port.

USB port

The USB port can have a USB flash drive connected to upgrade the switch, or transfer configuration files or other files. The USB port can only connect to a USB flash drive that complies with USB 2.0.

USB flash drives from different vendors differ in model compatibility and drivers. If a USB flash drive cannot be used, try to replace it with another one from a mainstream vendor. Switches support a maximum of 128 GB USB flash drives.

Indicator Description

Hold down the mode switch button for 6s and release it to start the web initial login mode. Either of the following situations will occur:
  • If the switch has no configuration file, the system attempts to enter the web initial login mode. In this mode, the status of mode indicators is as follows:
    • If the system enters the web initial login mode successfully, all mode indicators turn green and stay on for a maximum of 10 minutes.
    • If the system fails to enter the initial login mode, all mode indicators fast blink for 10 seconds and then restore to the default status.
  • If the switch has a configuration file, the system cannot enter the web initial login mode. In this case, all mode indicators fast blink for 10s, and then return to the default states.
Figure 5-37 Indicators on the S6720-32C-PWH-SI-AC

The S6720-SI series switches provide a command for setting fault indicators, which help field maintenance personnel find a faulty switch quickly.

The SYS indicator and mode indicators (STAT, SPED, and STCK) are used as fault indicators of a switch. If the switch fails, its SYS indicator and mode indicators can be configured to blink red fast so that field maintenance personnel can find this faulty switch.

Power Supply Configuration

The S6720-32C-PWH-SI-AC is a PoE switch. It provides two power module slots, each supporting a 580 W, 650 W, or 1000 W (applicable in V200R013C00 and later versions) power module. A 580 W AC power module and a 650 W DC power module can be used together. A 580 W AC power module and a 1000 W AC power module can be used together. Table 5-88 lists its power supply configurations.

When a switch has two power modules installed, the two power modules work in redundancy mode to provide power for the chassis and in load balancing mode to provide power for PDs.

Figure 5-38 shows the power supply mode of dual AC PoE power modules (PWR1 and PWR2). After AC power is transmitted to the PWR modules, the PWR modules provide 12 V and -53 V outputs. The outputs are combined on the motherboard, which then provides 12 V voltage for the switch and -53 V voltage for the PDs.

When the altitude is 1800-5000 m (5906-16404 ft.), the highest operating temperature reduces by 1°C (1.8°F) every time the altitude increases by 220 m (722 ft.).

The equipment can operate beyond the normal operating temperature range for a short-term period, but the following conditions must be met:
  • The equipment operates at a temperature of over 45°C (113°F) consecutively for at most 96 hours in one year.
  • The equipment operates at a temperature of over 45°C (113°F) for a total of no more than 360 hours in one year.
  • The equipment operates at a temperature of over 45°C (113°F) for no more in 15 times in one year.
The equipment may be damaged or experience unexpected exceptions if any of the preceding limits is exceeded.

The equipment cannot start when the temperature is lower than 0°C (32°F). The maximum distance of optical modules used in these conditions cannot exceed 10 km.
