Restrictions for 1-Port ADSL WAN Interface

The ADSL WAN interface does not support dual latency. When the ADSL link is intended to support both voice and data traffic simultaneously, the link should be configured for either all fast-path data or all interleave data with an interleave depth of zero to insure that latency is minimized. In addition, the total supported data rate must be reduced to adjust for the reduced coding gain, which is usually present with high-latency traffic.

Information About 1-Port ADSL WAN Interface

ADSL WAN Interface

The ADSL 1-port WAN interface provides asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) high-speed digital data transfer between a single customer premises equipment (CPE) subscriber and the central office.

The ADSL WAN interface is compatible with the Alcatel Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM), the Cisco 6260 DSLAM with Flexi-line cards and the Cisco 6130 DSLAM with Flexi-line cards. It supports Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Adaptation Layer (AAL5 and AAL2) and various classes of Quality of Service (QoS) for both voice and data service.


Note


ADSL is a last-mile access technology, which has an asymmetrical data rate running over a single copper wire pair.

The diagrams below show examples of typical deployment scenarios for the Cisco IAD2423.

Figure 3 ADSL WAN INterface with FXS or FXO Interface


Benefits

  • Enables business class broadband service with voice integration, scalable performance, flexibility, and security.
  • Aggregates both ADSL and other transport options onto a single platform.
  • Provides both POTS and ADSL high-speed digital data transmissions between the customer premise equipment (CPE) and the central office (CO).
  • Supports ITU G.992.1 (or G.DMT, which specifies full-rate ADSL). Supports and complies with ANSI T1.413 issue 2, and ITU G.992.1 (G.DMT for full-rate ADSL).
  • Supports ATM AAL5 and AAL2 services and applications, ATM class of service (constant bit rate [CBR], variable bit rate-nonreal time [VBR-NRT], variable bit rate-real time [VBR-rt], and unspecified bit rate [UBR]).
  • Provides ATM traffic management and Quality of Service (QoS) features to enable service providers to manage their core ATM network infrastructures.

How to Configure the 1-Port ADSL WAN Interface

See the following sections for configuration tasks for the ADSL WAN interface feature. Each task in the list is identified as either required or optional.

Configuring the ADSL ATM Interface

If your Cisco IAD has an ADSL port, a default ATM configuration is automatically in effect when the Cisco IAD is first powered on. If your Cisco IAD has a T1-WAN port, a default ATM configuration takes effect when you enter the mode atm controller command. The default ATM configuration has the following operating parameters:

  • ADSL port only.
    • Operating mode is auto--The ADSL interface operates in the mode specified by the remote DSL access multiplexer (DSLAM).
  • T1-WAN port and ADSL port.
    • Maximum VPIs per VCI (atm vc-per-vc)--1024.
    • No IP address.
    • ATM UNI Version 4.0 is assigned.

Configuring ATM for AAL2 Voice

This feature enables the Cisco IAD2423 to carry voice traffic (for example, telephone calls and faxes) over ATM networks using AAL2. AAL2 is the most bandwidth-efficient standards-based trunking method for transporting compressed voice, voice-band data, circuit-mode data, and frame-mode data over ATM infrastructures.

For configuration information, refer to the Cisco IOS Release 12.1(2)T feature module, Voice over ATM with AAL2 Trunking on Cisco MC3810 Series Concentrators, located on the World Wide Web at:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios121/121newft/121t/121t2/dt_aal2v.htm

Configuring RSVP over an ATM Network

The RSVP-ATM Quality of Service (QoS) Interworking feature provides support for Controlled Load Service using RSVP over an ATM core network. This feature requires the ability to signal for establishment of switched virtual circuits (SVCs) across the ATM cloud in response to RSVP reservation messages. To meet this requirement, RSVP over ATM supports mapping of RSVP sessions to ATM SVCs.

RSVP-ATM QoS Interworking allows you to:

  • Configure an interface or subinterface to dynamically create SVCs in response to RSVP reservation requests. To ensure defined QoS, these SVCs are established having QoS profiles consistent with the mapped RSVP flow specifications (flowspecs).
  • Attach Distributed Weighted Random Early Detection (DWRED) group definitions to the PA-A3 ATM PA interface to support per-VC DWRED drop policy. Use of per-VC DWRED ensures that if packets must be dropped, then best-effort packets are dropped first and not those that conform to the appropriate QoS determined by the RSVP's token bucket.
  • Configure the IP Precedence and type of service (ToS) values to be used for packets that conform to or exceed QoS profiles. As part of its input processing, RSVP uses the values that you specify to set the ToS and IP Precedence bits on incoming packets. If per-VC DWRED is configured, it then uses the ToS and IP Precedence bit settings on the output interface of the same router in determining which packets to drop. Also, interfaces on downstream routers use these settings in processing packets.

For configuration information, refer to, Configuring RSVP-ATM QoS Interworking, located on the World Wide Web at:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios121/121cgcr/qos_c/qcprt5/qcdrsatm.htm

Troubleshooting Tips

To troubleshoot ADSL line problems, follow these steps:

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    Check the carrier detect LED on the card. It will be off when the ADSL carrier is not detected. If it is off, it is a physical problem probably due to a bad cable or the problem with ADSL line or WAN service.

2.    Make sure the ATM0 interface is not administratively shut down and the cable is good.

3.    If the show interface atm 0 command shows the interface as down, it means the Cisco IAD2423 sees the ADSL carrier but cannot train up with the Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM) at the central office (CO).


DETAILED STEPS

Turn on debug atm events (you need to turn on terminal monitor if you are in a telnet session to the router) and look at the output:

The ADSL activation stages are shown below:

STOP

in shutdown state

INIT

initialization

DLOAD_1

init and downloading first image

DLOAD_2

downloading second image

DO-OPEN

requesting activation with central office (CO)

SHOWTIME

activation succeeded

When in DO_OPEN state, look for the modem state for the progress information:

Modem state = 0x0

modem down

Modem state = 0x8

modem waiting to hear from CO

Modem state = 0x10

modem heard from CO, now training

Modem state = 0x20

modem activation completed, link is up

The following is a sample debug output:

The ADSL WAN interface is compatible with the Alcatel Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM), the Cisco 6260 DSLAM with Flexi-line cards and the Cisco 6130 DSLAM with Flexi-line cards. It supports Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Adaptation Layer (AAL5 and AAL2) and various classes of Quality of Service (QoS) for both voice and data service.

The following platforms are supported:

Cisco IAD2423-8FXS , Cisco IAD2423-16FXS, Cisco IAD2423-1T1, Cisco IAD2423-16FXS8FXO.

The following commands were introduced or modified: dsl operating-mode, show dsl interface atm .

Glossary

AAL --ATM Adaptation Layer. ATM adaptation layer. Service-dependent sublayer of the data link layer. The AAL accepts data from different applications and presents it to the ATM layer in the form of 48-byte ATM payload segments.

AAL2 --ATM adaptation layer 2. ATM adaptation layer 2. One of four AALs recommended by the ITU-T. AAL2 is used for connection-oriented services that support a variable bit rate, such as some isochronous video and voice traffic.

AAL5 --ATM adaptation layer 5. ATM adaptation layer 5. One of four AALs recommended by the ITU-T. AAL5 supports connection-oriented, VBR services, and is used predominantly for the transfer of classical IP over ATM and LANE traffic.

ADSL--Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line.

ATM--Asynchronous Transfer Mode. Asynchronous Transfer Mode - International standard for cell relay in which multiple service types (such as voice, video, or data) are conveyed in fixed-length (53-byte) cells. An internationally standardized implementation of cell relay technology, ATM represents the first worldwide standard to be embraced by the computer, communications, and entertainment industry. ATM is a high-bandwidth, low-delay, connection-oriented, packet-like switching and multiplexing technique for data transmission that communicates all types of information (traditionally data, burst data, voice, video, image, and cell) over a common backbone using fixed cell lengths. ATM uses a 53-byte cell format that includes a 5-byte header and 48 bytes of payload. Because of the architecture, ATM has the capability to run from 45 Mbps using a DS3 to 2.5 Gbps using an OC-48.

broadband--Transmission system that multiplexes multiple independent signals onto one cable. In telecommunications terminology, any channel having a bandwidth greater than a voice-grade channel (4 kHz).

CBR--constant bit rate. QOS class defined by the ATM Forum for ATM networks. CBR is used for connections that depend on precise clocking to ensure undistorted delivery.

CPE--customer premises equipment. Customer Premises Equipment. Devices that a subscriber is responsible for in order to make use of telecommunications. CPE includes PCs, telephones, TVs, scanners, and much more. These devices or terminating equipment---such as terminals, telephones, and modems---are generally supplied by the telephone company, installed at customer sites, and connected to the telephone company network.

CO--Central Office - Local telephone company office to which all local loops in a given area connect and in which circuit switching of subscriber lines occurs. CO refers to the physical facility that contains the telephone switching system, transmission equipment, and other support systems that provide telephone and other telecommunications services to local telephone subscribers. There are numerous types of telephone switching systems, such as 1ESS, 4ESS, 5ESS, DMS 10/100/250/500, EAX2, or GTD5 that can be housed in a central office. The central office is not to be confused with the point of presence (POP) of the interexchange carrier, even though both perform many similar functions.

DSLAM--Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer. A device that concentrates traffic in DSL implementations through a process of time-division multiplexing (TDM) at the CO or remote line shelf. This device is usually located in the CO for termination of multiple customer DSL devices.

DWRED--Distributed Weighted Random Early Detection. Random Early Detection (RED) is a congestion avoidance mechanism that takes advantage of TCP's congestion control mechanism. By randomly dropping packets prior to periods of high congestion, RED tells the packet source to decrease its transmission rate. Assuming the packet source is using TCP, it will decrease its transmission rate until all the packets reach their destination, indicating that the congestion is cleared.

Weighted RED (WRED) generally drops packets selectively based on IP precedence. Packets with a higher IP precedence are less likely to be dropped than packets with a lower precedence. Thus, higher priority traffic is delivered with a higher probability than lower priority traffic. However, you can also configure WRED to ignore IP precedence when making drop decisions so that non-weighted RED behavior is achieved.

ILMI--Interim Local Management Interface. Specification developed by the ATM Forum for incorporating network-management capabilities into the ATM UNI.

POTS--plain old telephone service. Basic analog telephone service, usually associated with residential or business subscribers.

PPP over ATM--Point-to-Point Protocol. A successor to SLIP, PPP provides router-to-router and host-to-network connections over synchronous and asynchronous circuits.

PVC--permanent virtual circuit. Virtual circuit that is permanently established. PVCs save bandwidth associated with circuit establishment and tear down in situations where certain virtual circuits must exist all the time.

QoS--quality of service. Measure of performance for a transmission system that reflects its transmission quality and service availability.

RSVP--Resource Reservation Protocol. The Resource Reservation Protocol is a network-control protocol that enables Internet applications to obtain special qualities of service (QoSs) for their data flows.

SVC--switched virtual circuit. Virtual circuit that is dynamically established on demand and is torn down when transmission is complete. SVCs are used in situations where data transmission is sporadic. Called a switched virtual connection in ATM terminology.

ToS--type of service. See COS.

UBR--unspecified bit rate. QOS class defined by the ATM Forum for ATM networks. UBR allows any amount of data up to a specified maximum to be sent across the network, but there are no guarantees in terms of cell loss rate and delay.

UNI--User-Network Interface. ATM Forum specification that defines an interoperability standard for the interface between ATM-based products (a router or an ATM switch) located in a private network and the ATM switches located within the public carrier network.

VBR--variable bit rate. QOS class defined by the ATM Forum for ATM networks. VBR is subdivided into a real time (RT) class and non-real time (NRT) class.

VC--virtual circuit. Logical circuit created to ensure reliable communication between two network devices. A virtual circuit is defined by a virtual path identifier/virtual channel identifier (VPI/VCI) pair, and can be either a PVC or a SVC. Virtual circuits are used in Frame Relay and X.25. In ATM, a virtual circuit is called a virtual channel.
