    Pin assignments Select an Ethernet twisted pair cable according to the RJ-45 Ethernet interface type on your device. An RJ-45 Ethernet interface can be MDI (for routers and PCs) or MDIX (for switches). For the pinouts of RJ-45 Ethernet interfaces, see Table 48 Table Table 48 RJ-45 MDI interface pinouts...

    Cut the cable to length with the crimping pliers. Strip off an appropriate length of the cable sheath. The length is typically that of the RJ-45 connector. Untwist the pairs so that they can lay flat, and arrange the colored wires based on the wiring specifications.

    Patch cords are classified into SC, LC, FC, and so on based on interface type. The length of a patch cord can be 0.5 m (1.64 ft), 1 m (3.28 ft), 2 m (6.56 ft), 3 m (9.84 ft), 5 m (16.40 ft), 10 m (32.81 ft), and so Pigtail cord A pigtail cord is an optical fiber that has an optical connector on one end and a length of exposed fiber on the other.

    If the fiber has to pass through a metallic board hole, the hole must have a sleek and fully filleted • surface (the filleting radius must be not less than 2 mm). When passing through a metallic board hole or bending along the acute side of mechanical parts, the fiber must wear jackets or cushions. •...

  • Page 92: Appendix E Cabling Recommendations

    Appendix E Cabling recommendations When the switch is mounted in a 19-inch standard rack, the interface cables are routed through the cable management brackets, bound at cabling racks on chassis sides, and then routed up or down to pass through the chassis top or the raised floor, depending on the available equipment room condition. The power cables run along the two sides of the chassis and out of the chassis either from the chassis top or the raised floor depending on the equipment room conditions (power distribution cabinet, lightning protection box, connector strip, and so on) of the exchange office.

    Appendix F Repackaging the switch This chapter describes how to repackage the switch chassis, power supply, card, mounting bracket, and cable management bracket. Removing cables from the switch Before repackaging the switch, remove all cables such as the power cable, console cable, twisted pair, optical fiber, and grounding cable from the switch.
