Connecting a 56G IB Cable

Connecting a 56G IB Cable

  • Before connecting or replacing a network cable, use a network cable tester to check whether the new network cable is functional.
  • The new and old cables must be of the same model or be compatible.


  1. Check the model of the new network.
  2. Number the new cable.

    • The new cable must have the same number as the old one.
    • Use the same type of labels for optical cables. Record the name and number of the local device to be connected on one side of an optical cable and those of the peer device on the other side. Attach a label 2 cm (0.79 in.) away from the end of a network cable.

  3. Lay out the new cable.

    Lay out the new cable in the same way as the old one. Note the following points:

    • Lay out optical cables or QSFP+ cables in the rack by observing installation regulations. You are advised to arrange cables in the original way. Ensure that cables are routed neatly and intact.
    • Separate optical cables or QSFP+ cables from power and signal cables when laying out the cables.
    • Bend optical cable or QSFP+ cables with a bending radius of at least 4 cm (1.57 in.) to prevent damage to core wires. Lay out optical cables or QSFP+ cables for easy maintenance and capacity expansion.
    • Bind optical cables with cable ties. Ensure that optical cables are routed straightly and bound neatly and that cable ties are installed at even spacing and in the same direction.

  4. Replace the cable.

    1. Remove the old 56G IB cable.

      Release the latch and remove the cable. See Figure 3-23.

      Figure 3-23 Removing a 56G IB cable

    2. Connect to a new 56G IB cable.

      Remove the dust-proof cap on the port, and insert the cable connector into the port. See Figure 3-24.


      When you hear a "click" and the cable cannot be pulled out, the connector is secured.

  5. Check that the new cable is properly connected.

    Power on the server. If the LOM indicator is green, the cable is properly connected.

  6. Bind the new optical cable.

    Bind the new optical cable in the same way as existing optical cables. You can also remove all cable ties and bind all of the optical cables again if necessary.
