H801ETHB Board Description

H801ETHB Board Description

This topic covers the working principle, application, front panel, port, and specifications of the H801ETHB board.

Functional Specifications

Please refer to "Ethernet Service Access Boards Comparison".

Technical Specifications

Please refer to "Power Consumption and Maximum Frame Size of Boards".


The H801ETHB board supports Ethernet cascading, Ethernet upstream transmission, and aggregation management for remote GE extended subracks.

  • The H801ETHB board is mainly used for Ethernet cascading, which saves the upstream fiber resources of access nodes.

    Figure 3-56  H801ETHB used for Ethernet cascading
  • When the upstream ports on the control board and GIU board are insufficient, the H801ETHB board can be used for Ethernet upstream transmission.

    Figure 3-57  H801ETHB used for Ethernet upstream transmission
  • The H801ETHB board can be cascaded to remote GE extended subracks (for example, MA5623AR), achieving aggregation management for remote GE extended subracks.

Working Principle

Figure 3-59 illustrates the working principle of the H801ETHB board.

Figure 3-59  Working principle of the H801ETHB board

The basic working principle of the H801ETHB board is as follows:

  • The control module loads the board software, manages and controls the running of the board, and reads the slot ID, version and type of the board.
  • The interface module provides eight GE ports.
  • The switching module implements the load sharing and the redundancy protection through the inter-board aggregation.
  • The power module supplies power to each functional module of the board.
  • The clock module provides clock signals for each functional module of the board.

The service process is as follows:

  • In the upstream direction, service data is transmitted from the control board to the switching module through the backplane connector. The switching module performs the line rate switching of the Ethernet packets and supports service cascading and upstream transmission.
  • In the downstream direction, service data is transmitted to the switching module through the daughter board and then to the control board through the backplane.
