Switch Ports and Network Cables This appendix includes switch connector information and network cable information for cables that should be used with the Series 2700 Switches, including minimum pin-out information and specifications for twisted-pair cables. N o t e Incorrectly wired cabling is the most common cause of problems for LAN communications.
Switch Ports and Network Cables Note on 1000Base-T Cable Requirements. The Category 5 networking cables that work for 100Base-TX connections should also work for 1000Base-T, as long as all four-pairs are connected. But, for the most robust connections you should use cabling that complies with the Category 5E specifications, as described in Addendum 5 to the TIA-568-A standard (ANSI/ TIA/EIA-568-A-5).
Switch Ports and Network Cables Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs The IEEE 802.3ab “Auto MDI/MDI-X” Feature: The 10/100/1000Base-T ports on the Series 2700 Switches all have the “Auto MDI/MDI-X” feature that is part of the IEEE 802.3ab standard. They automatically detect the type of port on any device connected to the Series 2700 Switch and then operate as either an MDI or MDI-X port, whichever is appropriate.
Switch Ports and Network Cables Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs Straight-Through Twisted-Pair Cable for 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Network Connections Because of the Auto MDI/MDI-X operation of the RJ-45 ports on the switch, when they are operating at either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps, for all network connections, you can use “straight-through”...
Switch Ports and Network Cables Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs Crossover Twisted-Pair Cable for 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Network Connection The Auto MDI/MDI-X operation of the RJ-45 ports at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps also allows you to use “crossover” cables for all network connections, to PCs, servers or other end nodes, or to hubs or other switches.
Switch Ports and Network Cables Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs Straight-Through Twisted-Pair Cable for 1000 Mbps Network Connections 1000Base-T connections require that all four pairs or wires be connected.
