Back Panel and Port Assignments

The WBG-5000-E2 and WBG-5500-E2 appliance models use a hardware platform with the same chassis. It has four network interfaces, a serial interface, and an RMM interface on its back panel. The network interfaces include two onboard interfaces and two on a network interface card that is preinstalled in a slot on the upper right.

In the diagram below, the onboard interfaces and its ports are labeled as (1) and (2).  The interfaces and ports on the preinstalled card are labeled as (7) and (8).


Four more network interfaces on a network interface card can be added to this configuration, which will increase the number of network interfaces to eight. 

You must purchase this card on your own and install it in the slot that is located to the left of the slot with the preinstalled card. In the diagram, the slot on the left is labeled as Riser 2.

You can also use a card with only two network interfaces and ports in Riser2. This configuration is shown in the diagram. The network interfaces and cards on the additionally installed card are labeled as (9) and (10). The positions labeled as (5) and (6) are currently not used for providing network interfaces.

The operating system assigns names to the ports that are included in the configuration as shown in the following table.

The information in the table is related to the diagram. If you install an additional card with four instead of only two network interfaces and ports, names will be assigned to these ports as well.

Position Interface Name assigned to port on interface
1 Network interface 1 (onboard, left) eth0
2 Network interface 2 (onboard, right) eth1
3 Serial  

For operating the Remote Management Module (RMM)
7 Network interface 3 (on preinstalled card, left) eth3
8 Network interface 4 (on preinstalled card, right) eth2
9 Network interface 5 (on additional card, left) eth5
10 Network interface 6 (on additional card, right) eth4
