Cisco ME 3400 Series Switches Cabling Details

The Cisco ME 3400 Series switches are specially designated for access layer in Metro Ethernet. That’s why there is “ME” (shorten for “Metro Ethernet”) in the model number of this series of Cisco switches. In Metro Ethernet environment, users are connected to the normal switch port of the access switches and the uplink ports of the switch are connected to the Metro Ethernet backbone infrastructure. Users in this situation cannot be trusted and direct traffic between user switch ports should not b...

Transceiver Module Maintenance Methods and Installation Tips

As we all know, basically, a fiber optical transceiver consists of a transmitter and a receiver. When a transmitter connect with a receiver through a fiber but the system doesn’t achieve your desired bit-error-ratio (BER), is the transmitter at fault? Or, is it the receiver? Perhaps both are faulty. The fault might come from either internally in the optical module itself or externally by improper usage. Anyway, we have to diagnose where’s the fault and take measure to maintain the fiber optics s...
