- whenever a new destination address is found in a packet received on one of the switch ports, the destination address will not yet be in the switch’s address table and the Switch 212M/224M cannot know whether to forward or filter out the packet.
Introducing the HP ProCurve Switch 212M and 224M Switch Operation Overview Simultaneous Network Communications In addition to traffic isolation benefits provided by the Switch 212M/224M address table operation, the switch also enhances network performance because it can conduct multiple, simultaneous network connections. Instead of sharing the network bandwidth, as in connections to a hub, each connection has its own 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps bandwidth to use.
Installing the Switch 212M and 224M The HP Switch 212M and 224M are easy to install. They come with an accessory kit that includes the brackets for mounting the switches in a standard 19-inch telco rack, or equipment cabinet, or on a wall, and rubber feet so the switches can be securely located on any horizontal surface.
Installation Precautions: Follow these precautions when installing your HP Switch 212M or Switch 224M. W a r n i n g The rack or cabinet should be adequately secured to prevent it from becoming unstable and/or falling over. Devices installed in a rack or cabinet should be mounted as low as possible, with the heaviest device at the bottom and progressively lighter devices installed above.
If you do not install an optional transceiver, make sure that the cover plate is still attached over the slot for safe operation and proper switch cooling. Installing Transceivers Supported Transceiver Models: Install either of these HP 100Base-T transceiver modules into the transceiver slot: - HP J3192C 10/100Base-TX Twisted-Pair Transceiver Module...
If your installation requires a different power cord than the one supplied with the switch, be sure to use a power cord displaying the mark of the safety agency that defines the regulations for power cords in your country. The mark is your assurance that the power cord can be used safely with the switch.
When the switch is powered on, it performs its diagnostic self test. The test completes in approximately 20 seconds. LED Behavior: During the self test: Initially, all LEDs are on, except the Fdx mode indicator LED. The two • 100 LEDs are also not on initially, but turn on after a few seconds. This allows you to verify that all the LEDs are working.
Installation Procedures 4. Mount the Switch After you have verified that the switch passes self test, you are ready to power it off and mount the switch in a stable location. The Switch 212M/224M can be mounted in a variety of ways:...
(0.5-inch) pair on both sides of the rack Place the switch in the rack and lower it so the notches in the bottom of the bracket slide onto the screws. Tighten these screws-be careful not to overtighten them.
Wall Mounting You can mount the switch on a wall as shown in the illustrations on the next page. C a u t i o n The switch should be mounted only to a wall or wood surface that is at least 1/2-inch plywood or its equivalent.
