Connect the SP Cables
- Open the front door and locate the two SPs at the front of
See Front Components for the location of the two SPs, labeled SP0 and SP1.
- Connect Category 5 (or better) cables from the SP0 and SP1 SER MGT
RJ-45 ports to separate terminal devices.
Connecting each serial cable to different terminal devices provides redundancy in case one
terminal device fails.
- Connect Category 6 (or better) cables from the SP0 and SP1 NET MGT
RJ-45 ports to separate network switches of hubs.
To achieve 1-GbE network speeds, use Category 6 (or better) cables and network
devices that support 1000BASE-T networks. These 10/100/1000 Mbps NET MGT ports will autonegotiate to
the speed of your network.
- Continue with the installation.
To secure the SP cables through the front panels, see Securing the SP Cables.
