About this Guide
This guide is intended for network administrators and technical support staff using the DEV3726K VDSL2
The DAS-3626 VDSL2 Switch delivers DMT 5-band IP-based VDSL2 broadband access for residential and smal
business use. The switch provides up to 100 Mbps downstream and 50 Mbps upstream data transmission for
sixteen or twenty-four subscriber ports, enough bandwidth for high-speed Internet access, multimedia services,
and packet telephony services. The switch can coexist with ADSL, ISDN or POTS deployments. The switch
implements a 6-band DMT VDSL spectrum utilization that is ful y compatible with, and an improvement upon the
standard band plan that pushes the downstream bit rates wel beyond the ITU specification. The switches
feature dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for network uplink and trunking to another DAS-3626. The DAS-3626
includes the option of using either SFP or copper Gigabit Ethernet ports for uplinking. The switch has an internal
DSL splitter and DSLAM. Each VDSL subscriber port is paired with the various CPE options D-Link VDSL2
Home Gateways. The switch supports CPE management. The switch and CPE are managed via an out-of-band
console connection to a computer using terminal emulation software or accessed in-band via Telnet and web-
based management.

The system may be managed in-band or out-of-band using the Management Ethernet port, which wil al ow
users to connect to it using the imbedded web GUI, or through Telnet. Administrators may also use the console
port on the front panel to connect to the switch’s CLI management interface. The console interface provides
complete access to al switch management features.
Rear and Side Panels
Do not block the vent holes on the right side and rear of the switch housing. The left panel vent holes are used to
disperse heat from the system fan.

Before you connect to the network, you must instal the switch on a flat surface or in a rack, set up a terminal
emulation program, plug in the power cord, and then set up a password and IP address.
The switch is supplied with rubber feet for stationing it on a flat surface and mounting brackets and screws for
mounting the switch in a rack.
Switch Placement
The switch is designed for mounting in an EIA standard-sized, 19-inch rack, which can be placed in a wiring
closet with other equipment. Make certain the location of the equipment rack is sufficiently dry and cool and, al
network attachments and the power cord are connected to the device on the front panel.

Attach the rubber feet to al switches that wil be instal ed to maintain a minimum space between
the devices and to avoid damaging the equipment housing.

The power outlet or power source should be within 1.82 meters (6 feet) of the device.

Visual y inspect the power attachment and see that it is secured to the DC power connector.

Make sure that there is proper heat dissipation from and adequate ventilation around the switch.
Leave at least 5 cm of space on the right and left sides, as wel as 5cm on the rear of the equipment for

Cables attach at the front. Make sure there is ample room to access cable connections.

Do not place heavy objects on the switch.
NOTICE: Attach the included rubber feet to the switch or switches
before installing it in the rack. All equipment in the rack should have
rubber feet attached, to maintain the minimum space needed
between devices and to protect the device housing from being
Installing the Switch without the Rack
1. Instal the switch on a level surface that can safely support the weight of the switch and its attached
cables. The switch must have adequate space for ventilation and for accessing cable connectors.
2. Set the switch on a flat surface and check for proper ventilation. Al ow at least 5 cm (2 inches) on each
side of the switch and 15 cm (6 inches) at the back for the power cable.
3. Attach the rubber feet on the marked locations on the bottom of the chassis.
4. The rubber feet, although optional, are recommended to keep the unit from slipping.
Power On
The switch provides the option of using DC or AC power supply. The switch’s power supply wil adjust to the
local power source automatical y and may be powered on without having any or al network cables connected.
When the switch is plugged in, the Power LED indicator wil light steady green.
Power Failure
As a precaution in the event of a power failure, unplug the switch. When power is resumed, plug the switch back

Installing the Switch in a Rack
You can instal the switch in most standard 19-inch (48.3-cm) racks. Refer to the il ustrations below.
1. Use the supplied screws to attach a mounting bracket to each side of the switch.
2. Align the holes in the mounting bracket with the holes in the rack.
3. Insert and tighten two screws through each of the mounting brackets.
Figure 8. Attach mounting brackets

Attaching RJ-21 Connectors
The examples below il ustrate the two styles of connectors used for RJ-21 cable connections.

Network Connections
The partial front view of the DAS-3626 Switch in the diagram below il ustrates al network connectors as wel as
the RS-232 console port.
Figure 11. Front panel network connections
The required connections for ful POTS and VDSL operation are as fol ows:
1. Connect the female RJ-21 receptacle labeled POTS to the PBX (analog channel to Central Office) for basic
telephone services with Telco50 cable.
2. Connect the female RJ-21 receptacle labeled VDSL to patch panel for connection to CPE (via 0.4mm or
0.5mm twisted-pair telephone cabling). This connection is made using Telco50 cable with a male RJ-21
connector to the Main Distribution Frame, Cabling Cabinet, patch panel or other telephone distribution
system used for connection the end users.
3. Uplink to backbone via Gigabit SFP port(s) “mini-GBIC” (single or multimode fiber). The DAS-3626 includes
the option of using RJ-45 1000BASE-T port(s) for the uplink. If you prefer to use the 1000BASE-T ports on
the DAS-3626, configuration is required to enable the ports (and disable the SFP ports).
4. The Gigabit ports may be used to trunk with another DAS-3626. This requires configuration to specify the
port wil be used for trunking (config interface switch port-trunking).
Network cable connections can be made to the switch with the power on or off. Caution should always be used
when working with or handling any electrical y powered devices.
For initial set up and management, connect the male RS-232 port to the computer used for switch configuration
and management using RS-232 cable.
NOTE: In the illustration below, a telephone patch panel is used only
to illustrate the connection to the subscriber or end user.

Figure 12. Sample network
Connection to End User
The separated signals for both VDSL and POTS service are carried to subscribers via standard 0.4mm or
0.5mm twisted-pair telephone cabling. Connection to the CPE is made with standard RJ-11 connectors that are
familiar to the subscriber. The CPE device is a simple bridge and does not require that any driver or software to
use. Subscriber CPE and connection conditions can be managed through the switch.
Using the CLI
The DAS-3626 supports a console management interface that al ows the user to connect to the switch’s
management agent via a serial port and a terminal or a computer running a terminal emulation program. The
console can also be used over the network using the TCP/IP Telnet protocol. The console program can be used
to configure the switch to use SNMP-based network management software over the network.
This section describes how to use the console interface to access the switch, change its settings, and monitor its
Note: Switch configuration settings are saved to non-volatile RAM using the
system config save command. The current configuration will then be
retained in the switch’s NV-RAM, and reloaded when the switch is
rebooted. If the switch is rebooted without using the save command, the
last configuration saved to NV-RAM will be loaded.

Connecting to the Switch
The console interface is used by connecting the switch to a VT100-compatible terminal or a computer running an
ordinary terminal emulator program (e.g., the HyperTerminal program included with the Windows operating
system) using an RS-232C serial cable. Your terminal parameters wil need to be set to:

VT-100 compatible

115200 baud

8 data bits

No parity

One stop bit

No flow control
Users can also access the same functions over a Telnet interface. Once users have set an IP address for your
Switch, users can use a Telnet program (in VT-100 compatible terminal mode) to access and control the switch.
Al of the screens are identical, whether accessed from the console port or from a Telnet interface.
After the switch reboots and users have logged in, the console looks like this:
