MPC-SF/SG Ethernet switch introduction
Stand-alone 6 x 10/100Base-TX local ports and 2 x 100 BaseFX or 2 x 1000Base-FX / 10/100/1000Base-TX Up-link ports, multimode or singlemode devices, in-band management
General
MPC-SF/SG is a fully managed Temperature hardened stand-alone Fast or Gigabit Ethernet switch for video networking applications. The MPC-SF/ SG supports IGMP snooping, VLAN, network redundancy (standard STP/ RSTP or manufacturer specific FRNT 0 protocol), SNMP management, port configuration, port alarms, QoS (layer 2 and 3) and port mirroring.

Switching methods
The switch stores every incoming packets and then checks the packet for check sum errors, usually by checking the frame CRC (cyclic redundancy check sum). If an error is found the packet is discarded. Other reasons for discarding packets are undersized packets with less than 64 bytes or oversized packets with more than 1518 bytes (Ethernet MAC tagging results in maximum Ethernet packet length of 1522 bytes). Once the switch verifies the packets are correct they are then forwarded onto the port(s) of the Switch and then to the corresponding network device. The Switching decision is made based on the MAC tables (Layer 2 Switching). All MAC tables are created and maintained automatically. When the MPC-SF/SG receives a packet on a port it stores the source MAC address in the MAC table that corresponds to that port. If a node is silent for a long time (five minutes) the MAC address will “age out” and be removed from the table. The MAC table can hold up to 2000 (Fast Ethernet) or 8000 (Gigabit Ethernet) address entries with a MAC aging interval of five minutes. If the MPC-SF/SG does not have the MAC address in the table it will send the packet to all ports (flooding). This is also the case for broadcast packets and multicast packets. The packet memory in the switch is one megabyte, this is normally enough to store thousands of packets (depending on size). The switch does not use flow control (IEEE 803.3x) to throttle end nodes to avoid dropping packets during network congestion. Instead of flow control it uses HOL (head of line blocking prevention). HOL guarantees that high priority packets can be forwarded to ports congested by low priority data. It is also possible to separate some ports for VLAN usage.

Simple network management protocol (SNMP)
The MPC-SF/SG switch supports SNMPv2c. SNMP enables network administrators and control engineers to manage network performance, find and solve network problems, and plan for network growth. One feature of SNMP is that the SNMP agent (in this case a MPC-SF/SG switch) can send SNMP traps to one or more SNMP Hosts. SNMP traps mean system alarms such as a port link loss or a port enabled for port alarms or the switch temperature exceeding a predefined threshold.

Redundant Ring Introduction The redundant ring technology eliminates network failure caused by fibre or copper failures. The latter protocol is alternative ring protocol optimized for rings containing many Switches and requiring very low re-configuration times. Switches are configurated via Ethernet connection using PC with MS Windows operating system and Web User Interface (WebUI). 8 to 7. The WebUI can also be used for remote configuration and management. 8 to 7 through the ring (never 7 to 7 or 8 to 8) • One switch as the network focal point (root) MPC-SF/SG user manual 11 . This means that all equipment can be installed prior to the configuration. . The recovery time is a critical factor for several applications.. Together with a reliable hardware design and optional redundant power supplies systems with maximum availability can be achieved. The MPC-SF/SG Switches supports standard Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). FRNT can be used when a recovery time beyond that offered by standard STP/ RSTP protocols is needed. This requires that all switches in the ring support FRNT. FRNT version 0 configuration rules • Port 7 and 8 are FRNT version 0 ports • Always connect port 8 to 7. Note! RSTP/STP and FRNT can not be combined. Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Fast Reconfiguration Network Topology (FRNT). Ring wiring Connect port 8 to port 7 on the next switch in the ring. The recovery time with a ring failure can be down to 20 ms.

so when the network topology changes. Note! When using FRNT protocol all switches have to be Teleste MPC-SF/SG or CES series switches. The Spanning Tree Protocol. which is also referred to as FRNTv0. a link loss or a link establishment). thus the reaction times are faster. while a STP implementation will only send STP control packets one network hop. When a switch supporting STP recognizes a loop in the network topology. Spanning Tree Protocol continually explores the network. it blocks one or more redundant ports. and most parameters have been left unchanged so users familiar with 802. not only of its neighboring switches as is the case for STP. Fast re-configuration of network topology (FRNTv0) The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Fast Re-configuration Topology Protocol version 0. is defined in the IEEE Standard 802. and provides faster spanning tree convergence after a topology change. The MPC-SF/SG switches include the FLHP (FRNT Link Health Protocol). The ring is managed by one Switch selected as Focal Point in FRNT. 12 MPC-SF/SG user manual .g. Rapid spanning tree protocol (RSTP) The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol. The FLHP protocol helps RSTP to determine the health of the fibre links.1d can rapidly configure the new protocol comfortably. Each switch in a ring topology has knowledge of the network topology. The FLHP is proprietary protocol. The other Switches in the ring are called member switches. which is also referred to as STP. The 802. STP automatically reconfigures switch ports to avoid the failure by blocking certain ports. RSTP is an evolution of the STP.1w. is defined in the IEEE Standard 802. It allows the device to interact with other STP compliant devices in your network to ensure that only one path exists between any two stations on the network. which is also referred to as RSTP.1d terminology remains primarily the same. The FRNT ring solution can recover from a failure in only 20 ms if such a failure does occur. The FRNTv0 protocol is similar to the IEEE Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) except for the following: The FRNT keeps network load generated by ring packets at very low level. The Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol.Spanning tree protocol (STP) The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Spanning Tree Protocol. A FRNT topology change event packet will be sent directly to the focal point switch in case of a topology change (e.1d. The STP provides a loop-free network.

A physical Ethernet network can be divided into several overlapping Virtual LANs (VLAN) without having IEEE802.1Q tagging or GVRP (Generic VLAN Registration Protocol) support on the Ethernet end nodes. An Ethernet end node that is not able to send tagged packets can. default VLAN id = 2. default priority = 0 [low] . Network administrators configure VLANs through software rather than hardware. A VLAN consists of a network of computers that behave as if connected to the same wire . A default VLAN id for a given port will be associated to each untagged packet received on the switch (or tagged packet with VLAN id equal to 0). only participate in one VLAN.g.Pink.Virtual LANs (VLAN) General A virtual LAN. default priority = 0 [low] . default priority = 0 [low] MPC-SF/SG user manual 13 . i. See page 24 how to configure the VLAN settings.even though they may actually physically connect to different segments of a LAN. Several VLANs can co-exist on a single physical switch. default priority = 0 [low] . priority = 7 [high] . This means that the VLAN tables on each switch are dynamically updated during a network topology change.Green. default VLAN id = 6.1Q tagging protocol dominates the VLAN world. default VLAN id = 5. is a logicallyindependent network. Seven different VLANs are available: . default priority = 0 [low] . default priority = 0 [low] . A trunk port means a switch port connected to another switch.

One of the biggest advantages of VLANs emerges when physically moving a computer to another location: it can stay on the same VLAN without the need for any hardware reconfiguration. default VLAN id = 3.

A few VLAN ids in this range are reserved for other use. and this is cannot be changed. since port 1 has the white VLAN as the default VLAN. Port 1 has the white VLAN id as the default VLAN. while other VLAN’s selected for the same port has only relevance in case the end node connected to the same port is able to send and receive packets with these VLAN ids. Example: A non white broadcast load close to full wire speed is not a problem for correct switch CPU operation.: . 14 MPC-SF/SG user manual .The VLAN that is selected as the default VLAN for a given port will appear as an unchangeable VLAN. blue. A mix of switches with and without VLAN support will not provide the user with the capability of tag removal on all parts of the network. and each trunk port is member of all seven VLANs.4096.g. where important packets might be lost (e. The legal VLAN id range is 1. 1: QoS level 1 .. All ports on a switch are members of the white VLAN.Priority 6..e. This is important in order to avoid that the port between the switch fabric and the CPU becomes a bottleneck. The network should only be based on switches enabled for VLAN or not. the switch CPU can always be accessed via port 1 with untagged packets. The tag is not removed on packets sent on a trunk port. I. An end node that is used for network management (SNMP or IP configuration) must always use the white VLAN in order to communicate with the switch’s CPU. and this cannot be changed.
