Cables and connectors

  • The Gigabit Ethernet IQ PICs use small form-factor pluggable tranceivers (SFPs) that allow different interfaces to be used on the PIC. For information about installing and removing SFPs, see the M7i Internet Router Hardware Guide.

  • Fiber-optic SFP transceivers:

    • Duplex LC/PC connector (RX and TX)

    • Small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers:

      • 1000Base-LH (model number: SFP-1GE-LH)

      • 1000Base-LX (model number: SFP-1GE-LX)

      • 1000Base-SX (model number: SFP-1GE-SX)

      Optical interface specifications—see the Hardware Compatibility Tool at

  • Copper SFP transceiver:

    • Connector: Four-pair, Category 5 shielded twisted pair connectivity through an RJ-45 connector

    • 1000Base-T (model number: SFP-1GE-T)

    • Pinout: MDI crossover

    • Copper interface specifications—see the Hardware Compatibility Tool at


  • Status LEDs, one tricolor:

    • Off—Not enabled.

    • Green—Online with no alarms or failures.

    • Yellow—Online with alarms for remote failures.

    • Red—Active with a local alarm; router has detected a failure.

  • Port LEDs, one per port:

    • Off—Port is down.

    • Green—Link is established.
