Table 8.3: Port LED indicators for 10BaseT/100BaseTX chassis modules
The following port types are supported on the HP 9304M and HP 9308M devices.
1000BaseT Gigabit Copper (GC) Ports
The 1000Base-T Gigabit Copper ports can provide Gigabit throughput over standard Cat-5 copper wiring. The
port connectors are RJ-45s, the same as the connectors on HP's 10/100 modules. Thus, you can immediately
deploy the GC ports without recabling.
The 10BaseT/100BaseTX ports are auto-sensing, auto-negotiating ports with RJ-45 UTP connectors. These
ports accept Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables.
See "Connecting Network Devices" on page 2-17 for cabling pinouts and signalling specifics. If you prefer to
avoid assembling cables by hand, you can order the proper cables from HP.
The 100BaseFX ports are equipped with MT-RJ connectors and operate at 100 Mbps in full-duplex mode.
The 1000BaseSX ports operate in full-duplex mode and are equipped with SC connectors. Multi-mode fiber
cabling is supported.
The 1000BaseLX ports operate in full-duplex mode and are equipped with SC connectors. Both single-mode fiber
(SMF) and multi-mode fiber (MMF) cabling is supported. The 1000BaseLX ports must be connected to another
1000BaseLX port. Connection to a 1000BaseSX port is not supported.
NOTE: 1000BaseSX and 1000BaseLX ports also support auto-negotiation when the auto-gig option is enabled
on the system.
NOTE: 1000BaseSX and 1000BaseLX ports operate only at full-duplex.
100BaseFX ports come with MT-RJ connectors.
1000BaseSX and 1000BaseLX ports come with dual SC connectors.
10/100BaseTX ports come with RJ-45 connectors.
