Back Panel and Port Assignments

The WBG-5000-E and WBG-5500-E appliance models use the same hardware platform, which has six network interfaces, a serial interface, and an RMM interface on its back panel.

The network interfaces include two onboard interfaces, two interfaces on a built-in IO module on the lower right, and two on a copper network interface card, which is preinstalled in a card slot on the upper right, as shown in this diagram.


Four more network interfaces on a fiber card can be added to this configuration, which will increase the number of network interfaces to ten. You must purchase this card on your own and install it in the slot on the upper left.

The network interfaces provide ports, which the operating system assigns names to as shown in the following table.

NOTE: Traffic can be routed with different speed rates through the ports on these interfaces, see the port column.
