Install Mini-GBIC (SFP)

The MA Network Switch comes with up to four SFP cages. These cages accept mini-GBIC transceivers.
Two are at the rear panel, port 9 and 10. Two are inside the MA Switch.

For information on the compatibility see SFP Transceiver Compatibility

To install mini-GBIC transceivers inside the switch at port 11 and port 12, call your local distributor.

Install mini-GBIC at port 9 and 10

1. Remove the mini-GBIC from its protective packaging.

Be aware of the insertion direction.
Port 9 must have the bail wire delatch on the top.
Port 10 must have the bail wire delatch at the bottom.

2. Install the mini-GBIC into the slot 9 or 10 at the rear panel, until the mini-GBIC clicks into place.

For detailed description of your mini-GBIC transceiver, refer to the transceiver manual.

Remove mini-GBIC from port 9 and 10

  1. Open the ball wire delatch to disengage and remove the mini-GBIC transceiver.
  2. Replace the protective plastic cover on the mini-GBIC.

The mini-GIBC is removed from the port.
