The Cisco IE 4010 switch has two types of ports: ports for copper cables and ports for SFPs that support fiber optic cables. Fiber optic cables are specified where the distance between switches exceeds 100 m. For each connection, verify the type of cable, and then use the corresponding port. The ports labeled in blue are console ports for local access. The console ports are not connected during installation. The console ports accept copper cables with RJ-45 connectors.

How you use a particular port depends on switch configuration. For configuration files generated by the wizard, the default configuration for a port is to block traffic. You enable ports for purposes such as access or uplink, for a particular topology (ring or other types), and for specified subnets/VLANs. This means that the details of the switch wiring are specific to the network that you install. For information on how to connect a switch, refer to the accompanying installation sheet.
