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.

It is also suitable for use with all CAT5 cable manufactured after 1995 in accordance with the ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A (1995) standard. CAT5 cable connection All CAT5 ports support extended 150 m distances when using high quality CAT5e or better cables. Category 5 cable installed before 1995 UTP CAT5 cabling installed prior to 1995 is totally suitable for Fast Ethernet 100Base-TX. All CAT5 ports support MDI/MDIX by automatically accepting both straight and crossover Ethernet UTP cables. The Switch also automatically corrects polarity errors. For the most current test procedures and 1000Base-T installation recommendations. make sure that it has been fully tested for use with 1000Base-T. please refer to the Gigabit Ethernet Alliance web site at: www. it based its specifications on the CAT5 standard 1995 update. produced after 1995. Category 5e (Enhanced) 1000Base-T works equally well over CAT5 and CAT5e cable. The principal difference between the two cables is that CAT5e includes performance enhancements. Firmware version The functionality and operation of the devices described in this manual applies for firmware version 3.UTP CAT5 and CAT5e cable The 1000Base-T GbE physical layer is designed for use on all UTP CAT5e cable. Both straight and cross connected RJ45 cables can be used for CAT5 connection. All CAT5 ports support also auto-negotiation protocol. MPC-SF/SG user manual 5 . it may not yield consistent performance results when used with 1000Base-T GbE. This is because the standard was first established in 1991 and then modified in 1995.20). MPC-SG notes Category 5 cable installed after 1995 When the IEEE first began to work on the 1000Base-T physical layer standard. with confidence.org. onwards (done with 3. Furthermore the CAT5 UTP ports have isolation barriers between the signal lines and the internal electronics withstanding 1500 Vrms (1 minute). detect the various modes that exist in the device on the other end of the wire and advertise their own abilities to automatically configure the highest performance mode of interoperation. All cable installed after 1995 is ideally suited for use with 1000Base-T. However. Note! If your existing CAT5 cable was installed before 1995.

Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Fast Reconfiguration Network Topology (FRNT). The recovery time with a ring failure can be down to 20 ms. Note! RSTP/STP and FRNT can not be combined.. FRNT can be used when a recovery time beyond that offered by standard STP/ RSTP protocols is needed. The latter protocol is alternative ring protocol optimized for rings containing many Switches and requiring very low re-configuration times.Redundant Ring Introduction The redundant ring technology eliminates network failure caused by fibre or copper failures. Switches are configurated via Ethernet connection using PC with MS Windows operating system and Web User Interface (WebUI). 8 to 7. Together with a reliable hardware design and optional redundant power supplies systems with maximum availability can be achieved. FRNT version 0 configuration rules • Port 7 and 8 are FRNT version 0 ports • Always connect port 8 to 7. The recovery time is a critical factor for several applications. Ring wiring Connect port 8 to port 7 on the next switch in the ring. . 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 . The MPC-SF/SG Switches supports standard Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). This means that all equipment can be installed prior to the configuration. This requires that all switches in the ring support FRNT.

The FLHP protocol helps RSTP to determine the health of the fibre links. which is also referred to as STP. and provides faster spanning tree convergence after a topology change. The ring is managed by one Switch selected as Focal Point in FRNT. 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. and most parameters have been left unchanged so users familiar with 802. 12 MPC-SF/SG user manual . Fast re-configuration of network topology (FRNTv0) The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Fast Re-configuration Topology Protocol version 0. Each switch in a ring topology has knowledge of the network topology. The FLHP is proprietary protocol. Spanning Tree Protocol continually explores the network. it blocks one or more redundant ports. is defined in the IEEE Standard 802.1d can rapidly configure the new protocol comfortably. a link loss or a link establishment). thus the reaction times are faster.1w. which is also referred to as FRNTv0. RSTP is an evolution of the STP. 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.Spanning tree protocol (STP) The MPC-SF/SG switches support the Spanning Tree Protocol. The MPC-SF/SG switches include the FLHP (FRNT Link Health Protocol).1d terminology remains primarily the same. The STP provides a loop-free network. while a STP implementation will only send STP control packets one network hop. is defined in the IEEE Standard 802. When a switch supporting STP recognizes a loop in the network topology. which is also referred to as RSTP. Note! When using FRNT protocol all switches have to be Teleste MPC-SF/SG or CES series switches. STP automatically reconfigures switch ports to avoid the failure by blocking certain ports.1d. 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. The Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol.

A physical Ethernet network can be divided into several overlapping Virtual LANs (VLAN) without having IEEE802. priority = 7 [high] . Several VLANs can co-exist on a single physical switch. default VLAN id = 7.White. default priority = 0 [low] MPC-SF/SG user manual 13 . See page 24 how to configure the VLAN settings. default VLAN id = 3.g. no VLAN user configuration is required on the trunk ports.Blue. VLAN id = 1. where a network redundancy protocol is running (e. default VLAN id = 4. default priority = 0 [low] . i. All Ethernet trunk ports are member of all of the seven legal VLANs. Network administrators configure VLANs through software rather than hardware. 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). default VLAN id = 2. This means that the VLAN tables on each switch are dynamically updated during a network topology change.1Q tagging or GVRP (Generic VLAN Registration Protocol) support on the Ethernet end nodes. 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. Seven different VLANs are available: . This tag can be removed at the output port(s) if the port(s) is configured for tag removal.Brown. An Ethernet end node that is not able to send tagged packets can. which makes them extremely flexible.Yellow. default priority = 0 [low] .

A VLAN consists of a network of computers that behave as if connected to the same wire . default VLAN id = 6. A trunk port means a switch port connected to another switch.1Q tagging protocol dominates the VLAN world.even though they may actually physically connect to different segments of a LAN. default priority = 0 [low] . the default VLAN id for the port is used as the VLAN for such an end node. default priority = 0 [low] . default priority = 0 [low] .Pink.Virtual LANs (VLAN) General A virtual LAN.

Port 1 has the white VLAN id as the default VLAN. yellow. an end node cannot send “white” packets unless the end node sends packets with the white VLAN id unless the default VLAN for the port is the white VLAN... This is important in order to avoid that the port between the switch fabric and the CPU becomes a bottleneck. and each trunk port is member of all seven VLANs.Priority 4. 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.Priority 6. A few VLAN ids in this range are reserved for other use. 5: QoS level 3 . where important packets might be lost (e. 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. This means that the user does not need to set any VLAN parameters on the trunk ports. 7: QoS level 4 This priority will be added to the tag.g. The legal VLAN id range is 1. and this is cannot be changed. The layer 2 priority of a given VLAN can also be set.The VLAN that is selected as the default VLAN for a given port will appear as an unchangeable VLAN. and this cannot be changed. and that any network topology change will be handled automatically.Priority 0. The tag is not removed on packets sent on a trunk port. the switch CPU can always be accessed via port 1 with untagged packets. since port 1 has the white VLAN as the default VLAN.Priority 2. The network should only be based on switches enabled for VLAN or not. brown and pink packets never will be sent to the switch CPU.e. All ports on a switch are members of the white VLAN.
