Ports and Connectors

The vEdge 5000 router supports three types of ports: network ports, management port, and console port.

Network Ports (SFP Ports)

The 8x1-Gigabit Ethernet SFP NIM module support 1-Gbps SFP module. The 4x10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ NIM module supports 10-Gbps SFP+ module.

Table 1 provides the pinout information for the NIM  SFP/SFP+ port connector. The SFP/SFP+ ports comply with the SFP/SFP+ MSA standards.

Network Port LEDs

Each network port on the vEdge 5000 router has two LEDs—the activity LED and the link LED. See Figures 1 through 3.

Management Port

The management port on a vEdge 5000 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.

Console Port

The console port on a vEdge 5000 router is accessible via the following external interface:

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

Figure 5: RJ-45 Connector

The default baud rate for the console port is 115,200 baud.

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

The console port on a vEdge 5000 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 5000 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.
