Chapter 3 Installation Preparations


3.1 Safety Recommendations
Routers play the key role in data communications network. Please pay attention to the following: Warning: It indicates that this operation may seriously damage the router or endanger the operator. Please follow the operation procedures for sake of safety. Caution: It indicates that during the installation and usage of the router, the operation needs attention. Though this operation will not do any damage to the router or endanger the operator, it may affect the normal operation of the router. Please follow the following safety recommendations during the installation and use of the router: Keep the router away from water or any wet place. Keep the router away from any heat source. Make sure that the router is normally grounded. Wear ESD-preventive wrist strap during installation. Do not hot unplug the modules of the router. Do not hot unplug any cable. Always use UPS.

3.2 Installation Conditions


R2600/3600 series must be used indoors. To ensure the normal operation and prolong their service life, the following requirements for installation site must be met.

3.2.1 Temperature and Humidity Requirements


Certain requirements on temperature and humidity in the equipment room shall be met. If the relative humidity is too high, the insulation materials in it will deteriorate easily or even lead to electric leakage. Sometimes this will result in change to the mechanical performance of the materials and rusting of the metal components. If the relative humidity is too low, the fastening screw will become loosen due to shrinkage of the isolation spacer. In an environment with dry climate, the static electricity may be produced, putting the CMOS of the router to risk. High temperature is of the greatest risk: for it will significantly degrade the routers reliability, speed up the aging process of the insulating materials, and shorten the service life of the router. The requirements on the temperature and humidity for R2600/3600 series are shown in Table 3-1:

3-1

Installation Manual Quidway R2600/3600 Series Modular Routers

Chapter 3
Installation Preparations

Table 3-1 Humidity requirement in the equipment room


Temperature Normal operating condition 15OC to 30OC Safety operating condition 0OCto 45OC Relative humidity Normal operating condition 40% to 65% Safety operating condition 10% to 90%

Note: 1) The values of environmental temperature and humidity in the equipment room are measured at 1.5m high and 0.4m away from the front of the router rack when there is no protective board installed in front and at the back of the rack. 2) Safety operating condition refers to the continuous operation for less than 48 hours or the accumulative annual operation time less than 15 days. 3) The extreme environment refers to the likely environmental temperature and humidity when the air conditioning system in the equipment room fails (the normal operating condition should be recovered within five hours for each failure).

3.2.2 Cleanness Requirements


Dust undermines the normal operation of R2600/3600 series. Dust dropping on the equipment can cause electrostatic adsorption, which degrades the contact performance of the metal connection parts or connectors. This happens more frequently when the indoor relative humidity is low, which will not only shorten the routers service life, but also cause communication failure. The recommended specification on dust content and particle diameter in the equipment room is shown in Table 3-2: Table 3-2 Specification on dust content in equipment room
Maxim diameter ( 0.5 1 3 5 m) Max. intensity (particles per cubic meter) 1.4 x 107 7 x 105 2.4 x 105 1.3 x 105

The routers also have rigorous demand on the content of salts, acids and sulfides in the air. These harmful gases will speed up the metal rusting and the aging processes of certain parts. The equipment room should be protected from the invasion of harmful gases such as SO2, H2S, NO2, NH3 and Cl2, the value limits of which are shown in Table 3-3:

3-2

Installation Manual Quidway R2600/3600 Series Modular Routers

Chapter 3
Installation Preparations

Table 3-3 Value limits for harmful gas contents in equipment room
Gas SO2 H2S NO2 NH3 Cl2 Average (mg/m3) 0.2 0 0.04 0.05 0.01 Max. (mg/m3) 1.5 0.03 0.15 0.15 0.3

3.2.3 ESD-Preventive Requirements


Although many antistatic considerations have been given to R2600/3600 series, damage to the routers circuit or even the whole equipment may still happen when the static electricity exceeds the tolerance threshold. In the communication network to which the routers are connected, static induction mainly comes from: External electric fields such as outdoor high voltage power line or thunder. Internal environment like flooring materials or the whole equipment structure.

Thus, the following should be considered to safeguard the equipment against the static damage: Make sure that the equipment and the floor are well grounded. Make sure that dust-proof measures are taken. Maintain an appropriate humidity and temperature. Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap and uniform when contacting the circuit board. Place the uninstalled circuit board on the antistatic workbench, with its face upward, or put it into the electromagnetic shield bag. When observing or removing the uninstalled circuit board, please touch the edge of the circuit board, and avoid contacting the devices on it.

3.2.4 Anti-interference Requirements


The interference sources, no matter where they come from, affect the routers with capacitance coupling, inductance coupling, radiation of electromagnetic wave, common impedance (including the grounding system) or conducting line (power line, signal line and transmission line etc.). So the following should be considered: Take effective measures to prevent the power system from being interfered with by the power grid system. Separate the working ground of the router from the grounding device of the power supply equipment or anti-lightning grounding device as far as possible. Keep the router far away from the radio launcher, radar launcher, and highfrequency devices working in high currents. Use electromagnetic shielding when necessary.

3.2.5 Lightning Protection Requirements


Although many measures have been taken to protect R2600/3600 series from lightning, if the lightning intensity exceeds a certain range, damage to the router may still happen. To protect the router from lightning better, the following should be considered:

3-3

Installation Manual Quidway R2600/3600 Series Modular Routers

Chapter 3
Installation Preparations

Ensure the shell of the chassis is well grounded through the ground wire. Ensure the neutral point of the socket of AC power supply is well grounded. To enhance the lightning protection capability of the power supply, a lightning arrester could be installed at the input end of the power supply. As for the signal line led out to the outdoor from the function modules of R2600/3600 series, such as ISDN line, telephone line, E1 line, etc, a special lightning arrester should be installed at the input end of the signal line to enhance the lightning protection capability.

3.2.6 Workbench Requirements


No matter whether you are to install the router in the cabinet or directly place it on the workbench, it is necessary to ensure that: There is spacing reserved at the air inlet and outlet in the router so as to facilitate the radiation of the router cabinet. The cabinet and workbench have good radiation systems. The cabinet and workbench are firm enough to support the weight of the router and other installation accessories. The cabinet and workbench are well grounded.

3.3 Tools and Devices Required


1) 2) 3) Tools required Phillips screwdriver Flathead screwdriver ESD-preventive wrist strap Connection cables Power cable Console cable Auxiliary cable Ethernet cable Interface cable for selected modules Required Devices Ethernet HUB or LANSWITCH CSU/DSU or other DCE Configuration terminal (can be an ordinary PC) Equipment related with selected modules

Step 4: Check that the power indicator in the rear panel of the router is on. It is on when the power cable is correctly connected.

4.3.2 Connecting Ground Cable

Warning: The normal connection of the routers ground cable is the primary guarantee for the anti-lightning and anti-interference capability of the router, so you must connect the ground cable carefully.

The AC input connector of R2600/3600 series comes with an AC noise filter unit, whose central ground is directly connected with the cabinet, forming the so-called chassis ground (also called the protection ground). This chassis must be well grounded so that the induction power and leakage power can be released to the ground to improve the whole routers performance to withstand electromagnetic interference. This ground also provides protection against the lightning and over-voltage likely to be caused by the external network cable such as the E1 interface and ISDN cables. The ground point of the chassis is located near the AC power and switch at the back of the cabinet, as shown in Figure 4-7. The point shall be connected to the ground.

Ground point

Figure 4-7 Ground point on the chassis Please connect this point to the ground with a ground cable, and make sure that the ground resistance is not greater than 5-ohm. If the router is installed in a standard 19inch cabinet, then this cabinet should be grounded in the same way.

Warning: The router must be well grounded for the normal working; otherwise it cannot guard against lightning, and is likely to cause damage to the router and the far-end equipment connected with this router!

8.5 1FE/2FE Module


8.5.1 Introduction
I. Functions
FE (Fast Ethernet) is mainly responsible for the communication between the router and the LAN. R2600/3600 series support two kinds of FE modules: 1FE, 2FE, which are different in the following aspects: 1FE module provides one RJ-45 connector of 100Mbps Ethernet 2FE module provides two RJ-45 connectors of 100Mbps Ethernet

The FE module (1FE/2FE) supports the following functions: If Category 5 twisted pair is used, 100-meter transmission distance can be supported.

8-5

Installation Manual Quidway R2600/3600 Series Modular Routers

Chapter 8
Function Modules

The FE interface can work at the speed of 100Mbps or 10Mbps, and can implement auto-sensing. The FE interface can work in full-duplex or half-duplex mode; the former is more commonly used.

II. Arrangement of Ethernet interfaces


The interfaces of FE module should be arranged according to the following principle: The fixed Ethernet interface of R2630/R2620/R2630E is Ethernet0, and the interface number of the first swappable module starts from Ethernet1. R2631/R2621/R2631E has two fixed Ethernet interfaces: Ethernet0 and Ethernet1. The interface number of the first swappable module starts from Ethernet2. The first Ethernet interface of the R3640/3680/R3640E/R3680E is Ethernet0. The number of the Ethernet interface will increase in ascending order, starting from slot 0. In the same 2FE board, the interface sequencing is the same as that of 2FE panel. For example, if a 1FE is plugged into slot 1 of the Quidway R2630 and 2FE is plugged into slot 2, the number for the Ethernet interface in slot 1 is Ethernet1, and the two Ethernet interfaces are numbered Ethernet2 and Ethernet3.

Note: 1) When preparing the network cable, please use the twisted cable by preference to ensure the electromagnetic compatibility. 2) The Ethernet interface between the 1FE/2FE module and the configuration terminal can not be connected directly through the straight-through cable. Use crossover network cable to connect them directly. 3) You can use HUB to connect the straight-through cable of the 1FE/2FE modules Ethernet interface to the Ethernet interface of the configuration terminal.

8.5.6 Connecting Interface Cable


Step 1: If the Ethernet cable is a straight-through cable, plug one end of the cable to an Ethernet interface of the FE module, and plug another end to the HUB. Step 2: Power on the router and check the status of READY indicator on the routers front panel. It is on when the module has completed self-check and works normally. It is off when the module fails to pass the self-check, and please contact the local agent of Huawei. Step 3: After powering on the system, please check the status of the LINK indicator of FE. It is on when the line is connected and off when the line is disconnected, in the latter case, please check the line.

Caution: When connecting the cables, observe the identifiers on the interfaces to avoid wrong connection and damage to the module and the router.

8.6 2SA/4SA Module

Warning: Plugging or unplugging the interface cable of 2SA/4SA module is prohibited when the router is powered on, otherwise, the equipment or the module may be damaged.

8.6.1 Introduction

Caution: Before connecting the sync/async serial interface, please make sure of the following: 1) The type of device (sync/async, DTE/DCE, etc.) connected to the sync/async serial interface, and the signal standard, baud rate, and synchronization clock as required by the access device. 2) When the EIA/TIA-232 cable is used, the baud rate in synchronous mode cannot exceed 64Kbps.

I. Functions of 2SA/4SA
SA (sync/async serial interface) supports synchronous and asynchronous modes. It is mainly responsible for receiving/transmitting and processing data at the sync/async serial interface. R2600/3600 series support two kinds of SA modules: 2SA, 4SA.

II. Arrangement of 2SA/4SA serial interfaces


The interfaces of 2SA/4SA module are arranged according to the following rules: The first sync/async serial interface is Serial0. In the same 2SA or 4SA module, the interface sequencing is the same as that of the module panel. Starting from slot 0, the interface of the first SA ranges from Serial0 to Serial1 (2SA) or from Serial0 to Serial3 (4SA); the interface of the second SA ranges from Serial2 to Serial3 (2SA) or from Serial4 to Serial7 (4SA), and so on. For example, A 4SA is respectively plugged into slots 1 and 3 in the Quidway R3680. So the four sync/async serial interfaces in slot 1 are numbered from Serial0 to Serial3, and those in slot 3 are numbered from Serial4 to Serial7.

Chapter 8
Function Modules

III. Introduction to DTE and DCE


2SA/4SA are usually connected to Modem. When they are used as dialup ports, it is necessary to set their baud rates. The synchronous serial interface can work in either DTE mode or DCE mode. Two devices directly connected should work in DTE and DCE modes respectively. The DCE side provides the synchronization clock and specifies communication rate, and the DTE receives the synchronization clock and communicates at the specified rate. The router normally works as a DTE. To know whether the specific equipment connected with the router is DTE or DCE, please refer to the manual shipped with the equipment. In addition, Table 8-5 also helps you identify the equipment type. Table 8-5 Typical DTE and DCE
Equipment type DTE DCE Interface type Male Female Typical equipment PC Router Modem Multiplexer CSU/DSU

IV. Baud rate and transmission distance on the sync/async serial interface
In different operating modes, the sync/async serial interface supports different electric signals and baud rates, so different cables should be selected in different situations. The maximum transmission distance of the signal and the baud rate set are associated with the selected cable. Please refer to the following table for the specific values: Table 8-6 Baud rate and transmission distance for EIA/TIA-232 cable
Baud rate (bps) 2400 4800 9600 19200 38400 64000 115200 Maximum transmission distance (meter) 60 60 30 30 20 20 10

Caution: When the EIA/TIA-232 cable is used, the baud rate in synchronous mode shall not exceed 64Kbps.

8.7 8AS/16AS Module

Warning: Plugging or unplugging the interface cable of the 8AS/16AS module is prohibited when the router is powered on, otherwise the equipment or the module may be damaged.

8.7.1 Introduction
I. Functions of 8AS and 16AS
AS stands for asynchronous serial interface. Quidway R2600/3600 series support two kinds of AS module: 8AS, 16AS. 8AS is mainly responsible for receiving, transmitting and processing data streams on the 8-port async interface. 16AS is mainly responsible for receiving, transmitting and processing data streams on the 16-port async interface. 8AS and 16AS both features the following: The maximum speed per line is up to 115.2Kbps, supporting terminal access service and asynchronous leased line service. In addition, the asynchronous serial interface can serve as a dialup access server for the small- and medium-sized ISPs. Or, it can interconnect with 8 (8AS) LANs or 16 (16AS) LANs through the asynchronous dialup line. The interface cable for the 8AS module is a 1-to-8 connection cable: its DB-68 end is connected with the 8AS module and the DB-9/DB-25 end is connected with the network. The interface cable for the 8AS module is a 1 to 16 connection cable: its DB-200 end is connected with the 16AS module and the DB-9/DB-25 end is connected with the network.

II. Arrangement of interfaces of 8AS and 16AS


The interfaces of 8AS and 16AS are arranged according to the following rules: The first interface is Async0. Starting from slot 0, the interface of the first AS ranges from Async0 to Async7 (8AS) or from Async0 to Async15 (16AS). The interface of the second AS ranges from Async8 to Async15 (8AS) or from Async16 to Async31 (16AS), and so on. In the same 8AS/16AS, the order for the interfaces is the same with the numbering order on 8AS and 16AS.

8-24

Function Modules

LINK indicator of 8AS is on when the line is connected, and off when the link is disconnected. LINK indicator of 16AS is on when the line is connected, and off when the line is disconnected.

Caution: When connecting the cables, observe the identifiers on the interfaces to avoid wrong connection and damage to the module and the router.

8.8 1E1/2E1/4E1 Module

Caution: If the interface cable of 1E1/2E1/4E1 is led out to the outdoor, a special lightning arrester should be installed at the input end of the signal line to obtain better lightning protection effect.

8.8.1 Introduction
I. Module function
E1 is an abbreviated term for cE1/PRI module. The main function of E1 module is to implement the receiving, transmission, and processing the E1 data streams. In addition, it provides access to cE1, implementing the ISDN PRI function so that one board can serve multiple purposes. R2600/3600 series routers support three models of cE1/PRI module, i.e., 1E1, 2E1 and 4E1.

II. Arrangement of module interfaces and order


The method for operating on the cE1 module is different from that for operating on the other modules: each cE1 interface is a Controller E1. The arrangement of Controller E1 interfaces is as follows: The first Controller E1 interface is E1 0. Starting from slot 0, the first Controller E1 interface number for the next slot is equal to the last Controller E1 interface number of the previous slot plus 1.

8-33

Installation Manual Quidway R2600/3600 Series Modular Routers

Chapter 8
Function Modules

In the same interface unit, the order for the interface numbers is the same as that for the numbers on the module.

For example, in the Quidway R3680, plug a 4E1 into slot 1 and a 2E1 into slot 3. The four cE1/PRI interfaces in slot 1 are numbered from Controller E1 0 to Controller E1 3, and the two cE1/PRI interfaces in slot 3 are numbered from Controller E1 4 to Controller E1 5.

Caution: At the corresponding Controller E1, you can bind the timeslot of cE1 to the corresponding Serial0 with the configuration command. For details, please refer to VRP User Manual - Configuration Guide (V1.5).
