ACX500 Chassis Overview

 

ACX500 Indoor Router Description

The ACX500 indoor routers contain a total of 10 ports that support 1-Gbps speed, eight of which are labeled COMBO. At any point of time, you can use a maximum of six ports.

The ports labeled COMBO (combination ports) consist of four Gigabit Ethernet ports that support RJ-45 connectors and four Gigabit Ethernet ports that support small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers. Out of the four RJ-45 ports, three ports support Power over Ethernet (PoE+ and PoE++).

The two ports that are not part of the COMBO ports are Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports.

On the ACX500, the six ports that you can use at any point of time can be two Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports (non-combination) and four ports from the COMBO ports.

Note

You can mix and match the four RJ-45 and SFP COMBO ports as long as the port numbers are unique.

For example, from the COMBO ports, you can use the 0/1/0 SFP port along with the 0/1/1 PoE+ RJ-45 port, but not the 0/1/0 PoE++ RJ-45 port, as the port numbers of the SFP and the RJ-45 ports are same (0/1/0).

The top view and bottom view of an AC-powered ACX500 router are respectively the same as those of a DC-powered router. The only component that appears different is the power inlet for the two routers.

ACX500 Outdoor Router Description

The ACX500 outdoor routers contain three Gigabit Ethernet ports that support SFP transceivers and three Gigabit Ethernet ports that support RJ-45 connectors. The ACX500 outdoor routers install on a pole or a wall, with the chassis installed in a vertical orientation with the cables pointing downward and the eye bolt for hoisting the router pointing upward.

ACX500 Outdoor Router with PoE Description

The ACX500 outdoor routers with Power over Ethernet (PoE) contain three Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 ports that support PoE+ and three Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports. Out of the three RJ-45 ports, the port labeled 0/1/0 supports PoE++, and the ports labeled 0/1/1 and 0/1/2 support PoE+ with a maximum system PoE power limit of 80 W. The ACX500 outdoor routers with PoE install on a pole or a wall, with the chassis installed in a vertical orientation with the cables pointing downward and the eye bolt for hoisting the router pointing upward.
