3.4.1  What Does it Mean When an Indicator Is Yellow on a Card of a CE12800 Series Switch?

Table 3-18 describes the yellow indicators on various cards of a CE12800 series switch.

Description

MPU

RUN/ALM: running status indicator

Yellow

Steady on: The card is in power-off state. (For example, the card has been forcibly powered off using the power off command or is about to start.)

SFU

LPU

RUN/ALM: running status indicator

Yellow

  • Steady on: The card is in power-off state. (For example, the card has been forcibly powered off using the power off command or is about to start.)
  • Blinking: When the card is installed in the CE12804/CE12808/CE12812/CE12816 chassis, you can run the set device id-led { on | off } [ slot slot-id ] command in the diagnostic view to configure the PWR, FAN, SFU, and MPU indicators on the chassis header and RUN/ALM indicator of the card to blink yellow simultaneously. In this way, maintenance personnel can quickly find the chassis and card.

Service port indicator

Yellow

Blinking: The port is transmitting or receiving data.

3.4.2  Are Cards of the CE12800 Series Switches Hot Swappable?

All the cards of the CE12800 series switches are hot swappable.

  • Main Processing Units (MPUs) and Centralized Monitoring Units (CMUs) support 1:1 hot standby.
  • Switch Fabric Units (SFUs) support N+M hot standby. To remove an SFU, hold down the OFL button (at the bottom of the enlarged image) for at least 6s until the OFL indicator turns red (at the top of the enlarged image). Then remove the SFU from the chassis. Packets may be lost if you remove the SFU before the OFL indicator turns red.

3.4.3  What CMU Models Are Applicable to the CE12800 Series Switches?

The CE12804S/CE12808S/CE12804E/CE12808E/CE12816E chassis do not have independent CMUs, and their monitoring modules are integrated on the MPUs.

CMUs of the CE12804/CE12808/CE12812/CE12816 chassis include CE-CMUA and CE-CMUB. They differ in the following ways:

  • They monitor and manage different quantities of power modules and fan modules.
  • They are applicable to different chassis models and installed in CMU slots with different slot IDs.

Table 3-19 describes differences between the CE-CMUA and CE-CMUB

3.4.4  What Are Functions of the Ports on a CE-CMU?

Figure 3-36 shows the ports on a CE-CMU.

ETH port

It is a management port and supports rates of 10 Mbit/s, 100 Mbit/s, and 1000 Mbit/s. This port is reserved for future use.

RS485 port

Ports RS485 0 and RS485 1 are reserved for future function extension.

I/O port

Ports ALM IN and ALM OUT are reserved for future function extension.

3.4.5  Do Ports on a CE-L24XS-EC Card Support GE Optical Modules?

Yes, ports on a CE-L24XS-EC port card support GE optical modules. A CE-L24XS-EC card provides packet processing and traffic management on twenty-four 10GE optical ports.

  • When the 10GE ports work in 10GE mode, they support SFP+ 10GBASE-SR/LR/ER/ZR/LRM/USR optical modules, and can work with 10GE Twinax high-speed cables or AOC cables.
  • When the 10GE ports work in GE mode, they support SFP 1000BASE-X optical modules and 1000BASE-T copper modules. When using a 1000BASE-T copper module, a port supports 10M/100M/1000M auto-sensing.

3.4.6  What Are Differences Between CE-L24XS-ED and CE-L48XS-EC Cards?

A CE-L24XS-ED card has 24 10GE optical interfaces that share one chip. A CE-L48XS-EC card has 48 10GE optical interfaces that share two chips.

The ED and EC series interfaces cards support different numbers of FIB entries and ACLs, but they have the same MAC address table size.

3.4.7  How Much Is the Power Consumption of a CE-L36LQ-EG Card?

The typical power consumption of a CE-L36LQ-EG card is 605 W, and its maximum power consumption is 986 W.

You can obtain hardware specifications of the CE series switches using the Hardware Query Tool.

3.4.8  How Do I Know Version Support for Various Cards of the CE12800?

You can use the Hardware Query Tool to quickly find the version support for a card of the CE12800 or refer to the "Version Mapping" section of the specific card model under "Cards" in the CloudEngine 12800 Series Switches Hardware Description.

3.4.9  What Are the Naming Conventions of CE Series Switches and Cards?
