Connecting Network Cables

Connecting Network Cables

This section describes how to install electrical transceivers on the ports and how to connect them to the peer device ports using network cables according to the network plan.


Before connecting the network cable, check the following:
  • Construction conditions

    Ensure that the peer device has been installed in the equipment room and the port to which the network cable is to be connected has been determined.

  • Cabling route

    The engineering document specifies the cabling route from the cabinet to the peer device in the equipment room. Ensure that the cable length is calculated based on the cabling path.

  • Cable label

    Ensure that the cable is labeled before being connected to the devices.

Network cables are either crossover or straight-through cables. Currently, Ethernet ports on most devices can dynamically adapt to both types of cables. For devices that do not support dynamic adaptation, use the correct cables.

In terms of electromagnetic compatibility, network cables are either ordinary or shielded cables. Shielded cables are preferred because of their higher electromagnetic compatibility.

Before connecting a cable, ensure that the port is labeled and that the cable is inserted into the correct port. Otherwise, the port module or the device may be damaged.

Before bundling network cables, use a network cable tester to test cable connectivity. Bind the network cables to form a rectangle inside the cabinet. Each bundle contains a maximum of 20 network cables. Ensure that the cable ties are tidy and tied in the same direction.

The distance between the power cable, PGND cable, and signal cable must be greater than 30 mm.


  1. If multiple network cables need to be connected, attach temporary labels to both ends of each cable.
  2. Remove the dust-proof caps from a board interface and insert the electrical module into the interface.


    The electrical module can be inserted only in odd-numbered interfaces on the 24-port 100/1000Base-X-SFP flexible interface card.

  3. Connect one end of a network cable to the electrical transceiver of the NIP6830 and the other end to the Ethernet port of the peer device based on the network plan.

  4. Lay out the network cable along a cabinet and route the cable through the cable hole for the signal cables at the top (overhead cabling) or bottom (underfloor cabling) of the cabinet.
  5. Remove the temporary labels and attach labels (20 mm away from the connectors) at each end of the network cable.

Follow-up Procedure

Verify the following:

  • The labels at each end of the cable are correct, clear, neat, and facing the same direction.

  • The cables and connectors are free of any damage and are connected properly and securely.
