Required Tools, Wires, and Cables

Cabling your system should take only a few minutes. You will need the items listed below and in Table 6-1 for proper installation.

Table 6-1 Required cables
Connection
Port and Cable Used
Management connection between SRP I/O module and the LAN
One 10/100Base-T Ethernet management port with an RJ-45 connector
Management connection between SRP I/O module and a management console
One RS-232 port with a DB-9 connector for VT100 management access
Direct connections to I/O modules
See Table 12-3 in Chapter 12, Module Specifications for specific I/O module connector information



Note: If you plan on using a cable-management bracket (ERX-7xx/14xx models only), install it before you begin cabling your E-series router. Cable-management brackets are helpful to keep network interface cables untangled and orderly and to prevent cables from hindering access to other slots. See Installing a Cable-Management Bracket on ERX-7xx Models in Chapter 9, Maintaining E-Series Routers.
