Overview of the NJ1000 and Its Features

The front of the NJ1000 has four gigabit LAN ports for local switching. The gigabit 
LAN uplink port on the rear connects it to the rest of the network. 

The NJ1000 brings gigabit switching capabilities to any single port on an Ethernet 
network by allowing connections for up to four networking devices such as 


background image


computers, servers, access points, IP cameras, and Voice Over IP (VoIP) telephones to 
the network through a single Ethernet connection. 

All 5 LAN ports feature 10/100/1000 Mbps with auto-negotiation and auto MDI-X. 
The NJ1000 also provides two pass-through ports that can be used to connect two 
additional devices to separate network segments through the same unit. 

Power is provided to the NJ1000 either through the uplink port via 802.3at or 
802.3af PoE (Power over Ethernet) or locally via an optional, external 48V DC power 
supply, 3CNJ1000PSL.


Power Over Ethernet (PoE) is a method for providing power to equipment over 

an Ethernet cable, allowing a device to receive both data and power from the same 
network cable. PoE power may be provided on port 1 or port 2 of the NJ1000 if there 
is sufficient power available to the system. See the section “Understand the PoE 
Capabilities for Port 1 and Port 2” later in this guide for details.

NJ1000 Basics

This diagram shows the front and side views of the NJ1000. Table 1 on page 4 
describes the features.

Installation Overview for the NJ1000

Detailed installation instructions are included in the sections that follow.

The following diagram displays an overview of the recommended installation. In this 
example, the NJ1000 is being connected to an Ethernet network cable that is 
terminated with a female RJ-45 connector.

1. Understand the Power Options

Power to the NJ1000 can be supplied through either PoE (either 802.3at or 802.3af) 
applied to the uplink port or through the optional local external power supply.

If power is supplied to the uplink port by 802.3at or by the external power supply, 
then ports 1 and 2 may act as PoE PSE (Power Source Equipment) and may also 
provide power to other devices plugged into those ports. If power is supplied by 
802.3af, then port 1 and 2 will not be able to supply PoE power. Refer to Table 4 for a 
summary of this information.

2. Understand the PoE Capabilities for Port 1 and Port 2

If power is supplied by 802.3at through the uplink port (PD) or if power is supplied 
through the external power supply, then ports 1 and 2 may in turn act as PoE PSE and 
may provide power. 

If power is provided to the NJ1000 by the uplink port (PD) with 802.3at PoE or with 
the external power supply, then the NJ1000 will have a total PoE PSE budget of 
15.4W, which can be divided between port 1 and port 2 based on the class-based 
power management feature. 

The NJ1000 can power these combinations of devices:

One Class 0,3 PD device or

Two Class 2 PD devices or

Two Class 1 PD devices or

You must use only a power supply that is provided or approved by 3Com 

for use with this NJ1000. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in 
damage to the NJ1000, or may result in a hazardous situation or personal injury.

3. Plan the Installation

When installed, the back of the NJ1000 extends into a wall for 0.5 inches. Because 
the depth of some wall openings differs, observe the following requirements and 
recommendations before you install the NJ1000:

Make sure that the wall opening where the NJ1000 is being installed complies 
with the NEMA-WD6 standard, as described in this diagram:

Make sure that the distance between the back of the NJ1000 and the inside of 
the wall is at least 1.5 inches (3 inches is recommended).

If you are installing the NJ1000 into a wall junction box, make sure that there 

is enough space between the back of the NJ1000 and the inside of the junction box 
to maintain an acceptable bend radius on the cable. 

To ensure proper horizontal cabling functionality, adhere to the following 
network cabling standards during installation:


Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard


Commercial Building Standard for Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces

4. Attach the Wall-Mount Bracket

Attach the included wall-mount bracket to the wall opening as shown in this 


background image


5. Set Up the Network Cabling

The network cabling (from the wiring closet to the wall opening) may already be 
installed. If it is not, install the cabling following these general guidelines.


 3Com recommends that a professional cable installer perform these 

procedures. Be sure to adhere to local safety and regulatory codes during the cable 


Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the network. Usually, this 
connection is made in a network wiring closet, via the patch panel.


Terminate the other end of the cable at the location where the 
NJ1000 is being installed (using either a female or male RJ-45 
connector). Refer to the connector manufacturer's instructions for 
terminating the cable. Be sure to test the connector and verify that it 
is working.

6. Connect the NJ1000 to the Network

The method for connecting the NJ1000 to the network is determined by how the 
network cable is terminated, as described in step




If the end of the cable is terminated with a female RJ-45 connector, use one of 
the RJ-45 coupler cables included in the NJ1000 package to connect the NJ1000 
to the network cable.

If the end of the cable is terminated with a male connector, connect the network 
cable directly into the Ethernet uplink port.

7. Mount the NJ1000 to the Wall

After you connect the NJ1000 to the network, follow these steps, as shown in the 
next figure:


Mount the NJ1000 to the wall-mount bracket. 


 Make sure that the vents along the edges of the NJ1000 faceplate are 

clear of any obstructions to allow airflow to vents.


Slide the NJ1000 onto the wall-mount bracket, ensuring that the four 
hooks on the bracket fit into the four slots on the back of the 


background image



Pull the NJ1000 down to lock the hooks tightly into the slots. Be sure 
to match the screwholes in the bracket and the NJ1000. Secure the 
NJ1000 using the T-10 torx screw that came in the NJ1000 package

8. Connect the Local Power Supply (Optional)

If the network does not support PoE, you can use the optional local power supply. To 
connect the local power supply to the NJ1000, follow these steps:


Connect the round connector of the local power supply to the 
NJ1000 (as shown in the next diagram).


Plug the power cord of the local power supply into an AC outlet.




 the local power supply available from 3Com. Failure to do so 

may result in damage to the NJ1000 or may result in a hazardous situation.

9. Connect Devices to the NJ1000

Now you may connect networking devices such as computers, servers, access points, 
IP cameras, and Voice Over IP (VoIP) telephones to any of the four LAN ports on the 
front of the NJ1000. Remember, if power is supplied to the NJ1000 by 802.3at or via 
the local, external power supply, then PoE PSE power will be available on ports 1 and 

10. Troubleshooting: Check the LEDs
