Installing Devices in the 10-Gigabit Ethernet Slots

These sections describe how to install and remove X2 transceiver modules and the Cisco TwinGig
Converter Modules (also known as converter modules).
Use only Cisco X2 transceiver modules, converter modules, and SFP modules with the switch. Each
Cisco module has an internal serial EEPROM that is encoded with security information. This encoding
provides a way for Cisco to identify and validate that the module meets the requirements for the switch.
For more information about installing, removing, cabling, and troubleshooting X2 transceiver modules,
see the module documentation that shipped with your device. For module cable specifications, see
Appendix B, "Connector and Cable Specifications."

Installing X2 Transceiver Modules and Converter Modules

When installing X2 transceiver modules and converter modules, observe these general precautions:
To install an X2 transceiver module or a converter module, follow these steps:
Step 1
Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap to your wrist and to a bare metal surface.
Step 2
Remove the module from the protective packaging.
Step 3
Remove the 10-Gigabit Ethernet module slot EMC plug and save.
Verify the correct orientation of your module before inserting it into the slot. Incorrect insertion can
damage the module.
For 24- and 48-port switches, position the module face up to install in the upper module slot (slot 1).
Step 4
Position the module face down to install in the lower module slot (slot 2). See
switch faceplate.
For Catalyst 3560E-12D switches, position the module top facing right to install in a module slot. See
Figure 2-18
flush with the switch faceplate.
When you install or remove the converter module, the mode on the switch changes from 10-Gigabit
Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet or the reverse. During this mode change, data traffic on the other switch
uplink ports (X2 transceiver or SFP module ports) might temporarily stop. When you install or
remove an X2 transceiver or SFP module, traffic delay does not occur.
Do not remove the EMC plug from the 10-Gigabit Ethernet slot until you are ready to install an X2
transceiver or a converter module. Either a module or an EMC plug must be installed in the slot at
all times.
Do not remove the dust plugs from the fiber-optic X2 transceiver modules or the rubber caps from
the fiber-optic cable until you are ready to connect the cable. The plugs and caps protect the module
ports and cables from contamination and ambient light.
Removing and installing an X2 module can shorten its useful life. Do not remove and insert any X2
module more often than is absolutely necessary.
To prevent ESD damage, follow your normal board and component handling procedures when
connecting cables to the switch and other devices.
