Description
Bottom rule

IBM Ethernet Switch c-series B24C models are designed to offer flexible, resilient, secure, and advanced services in a compact form factor.

IBM Ethernet Switch c-series is available in a variety of flexible configurations to help address different provider needs:

  • IBM Ethernet Switch B24C (4002AC2) 24-port 10/100/1000 RJ45 model including four combination 100/1000 MbE SFP (Hybrid Fiber) ports
  • IBM Ethernet Switch B24C (4002BC2) 24-port 100/1000 MbE SFP (Hybrid Fiber) model

IBM Ethernet Switch c-series is built on Multi-Service IronWare, the same operating system software that powers IBM Ethernet Router m-series, thereby allowing ease of integration with existing networks. These capabilities include support for robust routing protocols, advanced Layer 2 protocols, an industry-standard user interface, a broad range of Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) protocols, security, and simplified management capabilities. Multi-Service IronWare on IBM Ethernet Switch c-series includes all these capabilities and additionally supports Provider Bridge and Provider Backbone Bridge functions as an optional Metro Edge upgrade.

Carrier grade Ethernet is a ubiquitous, standardized service that is defined by five attributes: standardized services, scalability, service management, reliability, and quality of service (QoS). A carrier Ethernet service can be delivered over a range of transport technology as long as it satisfies the standards and attributes associated with the service. Examples of underlying transport mechanisms that could be used are native Ethernet using 802.1Q VLANs, MPLS-based Layer 2 VPNs, IEEE 802.1ad Provider Bridges, IEEE 802.1ah Provider Backbone Bridges, and so on. The IBM Ethernet Switch c-series supports all five key attributes of carrier Ethernet.

IBM Ethernet Switch c-series is compliant with both the MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum) 9 and MEF 14 specifications. Using these switches, a provider can offer E-Line (point-to-point), E-LAN (multipoint-to-multipoint), and E-Tree (point-to-multipoint) services, the standardized service names for point-to-point, multipoint, and rooted multipoint services. These services can be offered using 802.1Q VLANs, Provider Bridges, or Provider Backbone Bridges.

The IBM Ethernet Switch c-series supports up to 128k MAC addresses per system. Support for 100/1000 Mbps SFP ports or 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ45 ports, helps provide wire-speed performance even at full load, to accommodate providers' customers who wish to upgrade to a higher bandwidth service. Additionally, the use of Link Aggregation Groups (LAG) allows multiple links to be aggregated and offer even higher bandwidth services at the user network interface (UNI) to the end user. When combined with IBM m-series Ethernet routers as the Provider Edge (PE) router, VPLS services on the IBM m-series Ethernet routers, complemented with 802.1Q/PB/PBB functions on the IBM Ethernet Switch c-series, allows the creation of highly scalable carrier Ethernet services.

Recently developed specifications such as IEEE 802.1ag-2007 (Connectivity Fault Management) and MEF 17 (Service OAM Framework and Specifications), support the rapid and proactive identification and isolation of faults in the network or service, to help maintain service uptime. The IBM Ethernet Switch c-series with the optional Metro Edge Premium Activation (#45W2840) supports capabilities in IEEE 802.1ag such as Connectivity Check Messages, Loopback Message/Response, and LinkTrace Message/Response. It allows flexible association and definition of both Maintenance End Points (MEP) and Maintenance Intermediate Points (MIP) within a network. Fault management functions of MEF 17 Service OAM are also supported. These tools provide the ability to monitor, diagnose, and centrally manage the network.

To provide a high level of reliability in the carrier Ethernet service, the IBM Ethernet Switch c-series supports Metro Ring Protocol (MRP and MRP-II), the ring resiliency protocol of choice on several metro networks worldwide. Standard Layer 2 protocols such as MSTP, RSTP, and STP are also supported. MRP and MRP-II allows carrier Ethernet services to be delivered over ring-based topologies, including overlapping rings that help improve the use of fiber in metro rings and provide fast recovery from node and link failures in milliseconds. MRP and MRP-II can also be used within a PB and PBB network.

The IBM Ethernet Switch c-series supports up to eight queues per port, each with a distinct priority level. Advanced QoS capabilities, such as the use of 2-rate, 3-color traffic policers, Egress shaping, and priority remarking, may also be applied to offer deterministic "hard QoS" capability to customers of the service. The IBM Ethernet Switch c-series can be configured with Ingress and Egress bandwidth profiles per UNI that are in compliance with the rigid traffic management specifications of MEF 10 and MEF 14.

Provider Bridges, as specified in IEEE 802.1ad, allow reuse of the entire range of 4096 VLAN-IDs on each port. By adding a 12-bit VLAN-ID (called the Service VLAN-ID (S-VID)) and associated tags to a customer frame, it is possible to map these customer VLAN-IDs (C-VID) to service instances in a provider's network.

Most network cores today are built based on MPLS. Specifically, by using VPLS, an existing MPLS network can be easily leveraged to offer carrier Ethernet services. In a VPLS network, participating Provider Edge (PE) devices establish a full mesh of pseudo-wires among all nodes in a VPLS instance. To support the scalability of the VPLS service, hierarchical VPLS is often desired by operators to limit the number of PE devices that participate in the full mesh. Provider Backbone Bridge (PBB) technology can be used to implement hierarchical VPLS by cross-connecting VPLS at the PE router (the hub device) to PBB spokes at the network edge.

Multicast transport is a key enabler of next-generation services such as Internet Protocol Television (IPTV). It is also typically a major consumer of capacity in many multi-service networks. It is therefore critical for next-generation edge switches to efficiently handle multicast traffic. The IBM Ethernet Switch c-series has support for multicast switching and routing via a variety of protocols including PIM-SM, PIM-DM, PIM-SSM, IGMP V2 and V3, and other platform-independent multicast capabilities built in Multi-Service IronWare.

Based on Multi-Service IronWare, The IBM Ethernet Switch c-series includes support for IPv4 unicast protocols (RIP, OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP) with the optional Layer 3 feature. Further, to help increase overall service availability, Graceful Restart helper mode is supported for both OSPF and BGP to support hitless management failover and hitless operating system upgrades on adjacent modular routers with these functions.

These switches also provide a broad range of security capabilities, including support for both inbound and outbound ACLs, ACL logging, advanced Layer 2 controls such as BPDU guard and root guard, limits for broadcast and unknown unicast and multicast. Receive ACLs assist in placing controls on unwanted traffic targeted toward the control plane. Additionally, using tools such as ACL-based traffic policers, ACL-based sFlow, and ACL-based mirroring, malicious traffic can be identified and preventive measures taken in the network.

Limitations

Notice: Government regulations (such as those prescribed by OSHA or European Community Directives) may govern noise level exposure in the workplace and may apply to you and your system installation. The actual sound pressure levels in your installation depend upon a variety of factors, including the number of racks in the installation; the size, materials, and configuration of the room; the noise levels from other equipment; the room ambient temperature, and employees' location in relation to the equipment. Further, compliance with such government regulations also depends upon a variety of additional factors, including the duration of employees' exposure and whether employees wear hearing protection. IBM recommends that you consult with qualified experts in this field to determine whether you are in compliance with the applicable regulations.

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

Planning information, including customer responsibilities, physical planning, and installability is available in the specific product planning manuals on the following Web site

http://www.ibm.com/systems/networking

You are responsible for downloading or obtaining from IBM, and installing designated Machine Code (microcode, basic input/output system code (called "BIOS"), utility programs, device drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM machine) and other software updates in a timely manner from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides. You may request IBM to install Machine Code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.

Cable orders

The media installed in the chassis require appropriate cables for connectivity. Cables must be supplied by the customer. 10 Gbps optical XFP or 1 Gbps optical SFP transceivers require single-mode fiber (SMF) or multimode fiber (MMF) terminating in a LC connector. Refer to the media description for proper cable type. 10 Gbps copper XFP transceivers require CX4-grade copper cables. 1 Gbps copper SFP transceivers with an RJ-45 jack connector require CAT5 or higher cabling.

Installability

Hardware installation time for the IBM Ethernet Switch B24C (4002AC2 and 4002BC2), is estimated at less than one hour.

Warranty Information
P.O. Box 12195
Research Triangle Park, NC 27709
Attn: Dept JDJA/B203

Warranty period

  • One year
  • Optional features - One year

Optional IBM features initially installed in an IBM machine carry the same warranty period as the machine. If installed after the initial machine installation, they carry the balance of the machine warranty or the optional feature warranty, whichever is greater.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service, depending on the type of warranty service specified below for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically by access to an IBM Web site. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines On-site Service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative for country- and location-specific information.

The type of service is Customer Replaceable Unit (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive) Service and On-site Service.

Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) Service

IBM provides a replacement CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request. A CRU is designated as being either a Tier 1 (mandatory) or a Tier 2 (optional) CRU. Installation of Tier 1 CRUs, as specified in this announcement, is your responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged for the installation. You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service specified below, On-site Service.

Based upon availability, a CRU will be shipped for next-business-day (NBD) delivery. IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.

The following parts have been designated as a Tier 1 CRUs:

  • Transceivers
  • Serial cable
  • Power cords
  • Power supply
On-site Service

This provides On-site Repair, 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday excluding holidays, NBD response. IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well lit, and suitable for the purpose. On-site Service is not available in all countries, and some countries have kilometer or mileage limitations from an IBM service center. In those locations where On-site Service is not available, the normal in-county service delivery is used.

Call IBM at 1-800-IBM-SERV (426-7378) to assist with problem isolation for hardware to determine if warranty service is required. Telephone support may be subject to additional charges, even during the limited warranty period.

Calls must be received by 5:00 p.m. local time in order to qualify for NBD service.

IBM c-series Ethernet switches are licensed for use by a customer on the IBM machine for which it was provided under the terms and conditions of the Brocade End User License Agreement, to enable a specific machine to function in accordance with its specifications, and only for the capacity authorized by IBM and acquired by the customer. You can obtain the agreement by contacting your IBM representative.

IBM may release changes to the licensed machine code. IBM plans to make the licensed machine code changes available for download from IBM technical support at

http://www.ibm.com/systems/support/networking

If the machine does not function as warranted and your problem can be resolved through your application of downloadable licensed machine code, you are responsible for downloading and installing these designated licensed machine code changes as IBM specifies. If you would prefer, you may request IBM to install the downloadable licensed Machine code changes; however, you may be charged for that service.
