EX-series switches have an out-of-band management port with an RJ-45 connector on the rear panel. If you need to monitor and manage an EX-series switch using a dedicated management channel, you can use the out-of-band management port to connect the EX-series switch to the management device.
Ensure you have an Ethernet cable with an RJ-45 connector available. One such cable is provided with the switch. Figure 39Figure 42 shows the RJ-45 connector of the Ethernet cable supplied with the switch.
