Ports and Connectors

The vEdge 2000 router supports three types of ports: network ports (also called SFP ports), management port, and console port.

Network Ports (SFP Ports)

The built-in network ports on the vEdge 2000 router as well as the 8x1-Gigabit Ethernet SFP PIM module support 1-Gbps SFP module. The 2x10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ PIM module supports 10-Gbps SFP+ module.

Table 1 provides the pinout information for the built-in SFP and the PIM SFP/SFP+ port connector. The SFP/SFP+ ports comply with the SFP/SFP+ MSA standards.

Network Port LEDs

Each network port on the vEdge 2000 router has two LEDs—the link/activity/status LED and the LAN/WAN LED. See Figures 1 through 3.

Table 2: Link/Activity/Status LED on Network Ports

Color

State & Description

Green

  • Blinking—The link is negotiated and active at maximum speed, and there is link activity.
  • On steadily—The link is negotiated and active at maximum speed, but there is no link activity.

 

Yellow (SFP ports only)

  • Blinking—The link is negotiated and active at a speed of 10M/100M, and there is link activity.
  • On steadily—The link is negotiated and active at a speed of 10M/100M, but there is no link activity.

Alternating green and yellow

  • An SFP has been detected in the port but the link is not active.

Off

  • There is no SFP present in the port and the link is not active.

Table 3 describes the LAN/WAN LED on the network ports.

Table 3: LAN/WAN LED on Network Ports

Color

State & Description

Green

  • On steadily—The port is configured as a WAN port.
  • Off—The port is configured as a LAN port.

Management Port

The management port on a vEdge 2000 router uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a management device for out-of-band management.

The management port uses an autosensing RJ-45 connector to support a 10/100/1000Base-T connection. The two LEDs on the port indicate link/activity on the port and the administrative status of the port. See Management Port LEDs below.

Table 4 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 connector for the management port.

Management Port LEDs

The management port on the vEdge 2000 router has two LEDs that indicate link/activity and port status. See Figure 4.

  • Off—There is no link activity

Status

Green/Yellow

Indicates the speed of the link:

  • Green—1000 Mbps
  • Yellow—10/100 Mbps
  • Off—Link is not up

Console Port

The console port on a vEdge 2000 router is accessible via the following external interfaces:

  • An RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a console management device.
  • A USB serial interface that uses a standard USB Type B connector to connect to a console management device. See Figure 5.

Figure 5: USB Type B Connector

At any given time, you can activate only one of the external interfaces. The default baud rate for the console port is 115,200 baud.

Table 7 provides the pinout information for the RJ-45 console port connector.

RJ-45-to-DB-9 Serial Port Adapter Pinout

The console port on a vEdge 2000 router is an RS-232 serial interface that uses an RJ-45 connector to connect to a management device such as a PC or a laptop. If your PC or laptop does not have a DB-9 male connector pin and you want to connect your PC or laptop to a vEdge 2000 router, use a combination of the RJ-45-to-DB-9 female adapter along with a USB-to-DB-9 male adapter. See Figure 6.

You can also connect the vEdge 2000 router to a management device such as a PC or a laptop using an RJ-45-to-RJ45 cable as shown in Figure 7. Note that the vEdge 2000 router does not ship with an RJ-45-to-RJ-45 cable.
