Overview of Connecting the M320 Router to Management and Alarm Devices

 

For management and service operations, you connect the Routing Engine to an external console or management network through ports on the Connector Interface Panel (CIP). You can also connect the router to external alarm-reporting devices through the alarm relay contacts on the CIP.

After you have installed the router into the rack, attach one or more external devices to the ports on the CIP that connect to the Routing Engines for management and service operations (see Figure 1).
