- Insert the ends of the retainer clip into the holes on the tabs.
- Insert power cord connector.
- Rotate clip until it clicks into place over the power cord connector.
You can see the hardware components for the SR2208P switch in the illustration below, and read about them in the descriptions that follow.
Hardware Component Descriptions
The Reset button allows you to reboot the device or reinstate the default factory settings. To reboot the device and retain the startup config file, hold the button down between 1 and 5 seconds. To return the configuration to the default settings, hold the button down for 5 seconds or longer. When you release the button, the System LED goes dark as the system reboots, then turns amber while the firmware loads and the system performs a self-test. After the firmware has finished loading and the switch has connected to ExtremeCloud IQ, the device System LED glows steady green.
Eight 10/100/1000-Mbps RJ45 Ethernet ports act as LAN interfaces, are compatible with 10/100/1000Base-T/TX, and automatically negotiate half-and full-duplex connections with the connecting device. The ports are auto-sensing and adjust to straight-through and crossover Ethernet cables automatically. All 8 ports support 124 W PoE capability for powered devices, such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, and network cameras. These ports are IEEE802.3af and IEEE802.3at PSE (power sourcing equipment) compliant, as described here:
- 802.3af PoE provides up to 12.95 W of DC power to each device (this rate reflects normal power loss through the cables). 802.3af meets the power demands of PoE Class 0, 1, 2, and 3 devices.
- 802.3at PoE (also referred to as PoE+) provides up to 25.5 W of DC power to each device (this rate reflects normal power loss through the cables). 802.3at meets the power demands of PoE Class 4 devices.
802.3af is the default setting for all ports, but you can configure up to four ports for 802.3at to support devices that require more power. When four ports are configured for 802.3at, the remaining four PoE ports are shut down to maintain the 802.3at power budget (these ports will still function as standard Ethernet ports).
To change the power setting, first add 803.2af and 802.3at PSE profiles to your network policy in ExtremeCloud IQ and assign them to ports as needed using the device template in your network policy. You can change the profile at any time.
The Ethernet port pin assignments use the TIA/EIA-568-B standard. The ports accept standard Cat3, Cat5, Cat5e, or Cat6 Ethernet cable, and autosensing capabilities allow the wiring termination in the Ethernet cable to be either straight-through or crossover.
For more information about how to manage PSE power, see "PoE Power Management".
Two combo 1 Gb uplink ports accommodate any combination of copper or fiber SFP modules (up to 1 Gbps) for additional uplink capacity. SFP modules can be used to connect a broadband modem or other uplink device (such as a router, switch, or hub). SFP ports are typically used for capacity planning and to leverage the higher network bandwidth capabilities and speeds typically offered by SFP modules. You can order SFP modules from Extreme Networks, or purchase your own modules. For more information contact your Extreme Networks representative. For information about installing, replacing, and cleaning SFP modules, see "Working with SFP Modules".
Use the RJ45 Console port to make a serial connection to the switch to access the CLI. The management station from which you connect to the device must have a VT100 emulation program, such as Tera Term Pro© (a free terminal emulator) or Hilgraeve Hyperterminal® (provided with Windows® operating systems from Windows 95 to Windows XP). The serial connection settings are: 9600 bits per second, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control. For Console port pin assignments see "Extreme Device Pin Assignments".
Use the power cord to connect the switch to the AC power adapter, and connect the AC power adapter to a standard AC power source. Because the switch does not have an on/off switch, it automatically powers on when you connect it to a power source. A retention clip ships with the switch that you can use to secure the power cord to the back of the device.
The LEDs display operational information about the switch. The SR2208P front panel contains the following LEDs:
- Off: No power
- Solid green: Power is on
- Solid green: System is up and ready
- Solid green (and all port LEDs are also solid green): System is in u-boot mode.
- Blinking green: Device is performing a power-on-self-test. If this LED is off, and power is on, a fault has been detected.
PoE MAX LED:
- Solid amber: The switch is providing 80% or more of the PoE power budget
- Off: The switch is providing less than 80% of the PoE power budget
Port Link Status LEDs (top left LED above port):
- Solid green: A link is detected on the port
- Blinking green: Traffic is being transmitted or received over the port
- Off indicates: No link detected
Port PoE Status LED (top right LED above port):
- Solid green: 802.3af/at powered device detected
- Off: No powered device detected
Combo Uplink Port Link Status LED (one per physical port):
- Solid green: A link is detected.
- Blinking green: Traffic is being transmitted or received over the port.
- Off: No link detected on the port.
The switch supports static and dynamic PoE power management:
- Static: Using static power management, the maximum power delivered by each port is determined by the power threshold (802.3af or 802.3at) that is configured on that port. If more power is required than the ports can deliver, the switch shuts down lower priority ports and transfers their power allotment to higher priority ports.
- Dynamic (default): Using dynamic power management, the switch measures the power consumption of each port in real time. If the power requirements exceed the PSE budget, the switch shuts down lower priority ports and transfers the power allotments to higher priority ports until the budget is met.
The combined amount of power delivered by all ports cannot exceed the PSE power budget.
To change the power management setting in ExtremeCloud IQ, go to Manage > Devices. Select the check box for the switch, select Dynamic or Static from the Power Management Type drop-down box in Optional Settings > PSE Settings, and then select Save.
By default, all ports have priority enabled, with a priority setting of low. There are three port priorities: low, high, and critical.
If there is no priority setting applied to a port or if multiple ports have the same priority, the switch gives the port with the lowest number the higher priority.
Port priorities are assigned and changed using the PSE port profiles that you create in ExtremeCloud IQ. Add PSE profiles for low, high, and critical in your network policy in ExtremeCloud IQ. You can change the priority for a port by changing its PSE profile.
You can install or replace SFP modules in the switch while it is powered and running. When you are working with SFP modules, especially fiber modules, be aware of the following safety precautions:
All fiber optic interfaces contain Class 1 lasers. Invisible laser radiation can also be emitted from disconnected fibers. Never look into the end of a fiber, regardless of whether it is active or disconnected.
Keep the chassis area clean and dust-free during and after installation.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD damage occurs when electronic components are improperly handled and can result in complete or intermittent failures. Be sure to follow ESD-prevention procedures when installing SFP modules. Wear an ESD wrist strap with a series 1 Megohm resistor and attach the clip end of the strap to a metal surface (such as an equipment rack) to act as ground.
Follow these steps to install an SFP module:
- Remove the module from its protective packaging.
- While wearing an ESD wrist strap, insert the module into an uplink port until it clicks into place. Modules are keyed to prevent incorrect installation.
- If you are not using the module, leave the protective cover in place. To remove a module, lift the bail handle on the front of the module and pull gently on the module until it disengages from the port.
- Always leave the protective cap in place on an SFP module when you are not using it to prevent dust from collecting on the connectors.
To connect a cable to an SFP module, perform the following steps:
- Always clean cable and port connectors before cabling an SFP module. See "Cleaning Fiber Ports and Connectors" for information about how to clean fiber modules.
- Remove the cover from the SFP module and store it in a resealable container to prevent the transfer of dust to the module. Keep the resealable containers near the connectors for easy access.
- Gently insert the cable connectors (a tab on each connector should face upward) into the module until the tabs lock into place.
- Check the LEDs to determine that the connections are working properly.
To avoid problems with fiber optic connections, it is important to clean both cable and port connectors each time you connect or disconnect them. Dust accumulates easily in connectors and can cause connection problems.
Use a dry (recommended) or wet cleaning process to clean connectors using either lint-free wipes or lint-free swabs. Lightly wipe the connectors to clean them. Never reuse a wipe or swab. If possible, inspect the connectors with a fiber scope to check that they are properly clean.
If you use a wet cleaning process, use only 99% isopropyl alcohol. Make sure that all alcohol is wiped away from all surfaces (do not allow it to evaporate slowly) and has not collected in crevices of cavities. Alcohol residue can contaminate connectors and it is difficult to remove all traces of it. For this reason, a dry cleaning process is preferable.
