Introduction

The Cisco AS5800 access server is a high-density, Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN), and modem Wide Area Network (WAN) aggregation systems that provide digital and analog call termination. They are intended to be used as a service provider dial point-of-presence (POP) or centralized enterprise dial gateway. The Cisco AS5800 consists of a dial shelf and one or two router shelves:

The Cisco DS5814 (dial shelf) has 14 slots and can support 1 or 2 dial shelf controller cards and up to 12 feature cards to provide full analog modem, and ISDN coverage. Analog calls are terminated by a feature card that is loaded with integrated modems.

ISDN calls are terminated onboard the trunk card on High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) controllers. The E1 trunk, T1 trunk, and the CT3 trunk cards include channel service units (CSUs) and have either 12 E1 ports, 12 T1 ports, or 28 T1 ports (within the CT3 trunk) that can operate as Primary Rate Interfaces (PRIs), inter-machine trunks (IMTs), or channelized interfaces in any combination. The specific trunk card limitations are described in Table 2, Part 1.


Note T1 and E1 cards are not supported in the same box.


The Cisco RS7206VXR (router shelf) contains a network processing engine, an I/O controller, and the egress interfaces, such as High-Speed Serial Interface (HSSI), Fast Ethernet (FE), Gigabit Ethernet (GE), and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), and supports either 280W AC-input or 280W DC-input redundant power. The router shelf also may contain one or two dial shelf interconnect port adapters each with a single RJ-45 receptacle, which is used to connect the router shelf to the Cisco 5814 dial shelf. The interconnect port adapter connects directly to the dial shelf controller card on the dial shelf via a Cisco-proprietary cable, customized with jack screws to secure the connection. You must use this specially designed cable that ships with your interconnect port adapter. Each router shelf can only be connected to one dial shelf controller card.If the dial shelf configured in split mode, it must be connected to two separate router shelves.


Note The router shelf is only supported for routing data to and from the dial shelf. The router should not be used with multiple port adapter interfaces to route LAN traffic between multiple networks.


The AC-input power shelf is an optional component of the Cisco AS5800 universal access servers and is used to convert AC-input power into DC-output power for the DC-powered Cisco 5814 dial shelf. The AC-input power shelf contains two AC-input power supplies.

The AC-input to DC-output connection supplies -48V DC-output power to the dial shelf power entry modules (PEMs). The PEMs receive the -48V and transmit power to the filter module. Power flows through the filter module to the backplane, where it is distributed to the dial shelf controller card(s) and feature cards.

The AC-input power shelf includes two 2,000 W, AC-input power supplies that plug into a common power backplane in the AC-input power shelf. A single AC-input power supply is capable of powering a fully configured Cisco 5814 dial shelf. The second power supply provides full redundancy.

For information on new features and Cisco IOS commands supported by Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) XS2, see the "New and Changed Information" section and the "Related Documentation" section.

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/130/upgrade_index.shtml

For specific information about upgrading AS5800 IOS software, modem and firmware upgrades, and split dial shelf, refer to the "Provisioning" chapter in the Cisco AS5800 Operations, Administration, Maintenance, and Provisioning Guide (OAM&P) at:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_serv/as5800/sw_conf/58_oamp/prov.htm

Upgrading to a New Software Release

For general information about upgrading to a new software release, refer to Upgrading the Cisco IOS Software Release in Cisco Routers and Modems located at:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/130/upgrade_index.shtml

Microcode and Modem Code Software

Microcode software images are bundled with the system software image—with the exception of the Channel Interface Processor (CIP) microcode (all system software images). Bundling eliminates the need to store separate microcode images. When the router starts, the system software unpacks the microcode software bundle and loads the proper software on all the interface processor boards.

You could have received a later version of modem code than the one bundled with the Cisco IOS software. The modem code in Flash memory is mapped to the modems. Unless you fully understand how Cisco IOS software uses modem code, it is important to keep the factory configuration.

The modem code release notes are on Cisco.com and the Documentation CD-ROM.

On Cisco.com at:

Technical Documents: Access Servers and Access Routers: Access Servers: Cisco AS5800: Configuration Documents for Cisco AS5800: Port Firmware

On the Documentation CD-ROM at:

Cisco Product Documentation: Access Servers and Access Routers: Access Servers: Cisco AS5800: Configuration Documents for Cisco AS5800: Port Firmware

To obtain the latest Cisco IOS software release compatible with Cisco MICA portware, refer to the Cisco AS5x00 MICA 6-Port and 12-Port Modem Module Portware/Cisco IOS Software Compatibility Matrixes at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_serv/5300/sw_conf/sw_ports/compmat/mca12prt.htm.

Feature Set Tables

The Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets consisting of software images—depending on the platform. Each feature set contains a specific set of Cisco IOS features.

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) XS2 supports the same feature sets as Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1), but Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) XS2 can include new features supported by the Cisco AS5800 universal access servers.


Caution Cisco IOS images with strong encryption (including, but not limited to, 168-bit Triple Data Encryption Standard [3DES] data encryption feature sets) are subject to United States government export controls and have limited distribution. Strong encryption images to be installed outside the United States are likely to require an export license. Customer orders may be denied or subject to delay because of United States government regulations. When applicable, purchaser and user must obtain local import and use authorizations for all encryption strengths. Please contact your sales representative or distributor for more information, or send an e-mail to export@cisco.com.

Table 3 lists the features and feature sets supported by the Cisco AS5800 universal access servers in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) XS2 and uses the following conventions:

Yes—The feature is supported in the software image.

No—The feature is not supported in the software image.


Note This table might not be cumulative or list all the features in each image. If you have a Cisco.com login account, you can find image and release information regarding features prior to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) by using the Feature Navigator tool at http://www.cisco.com/go/fn.

CSCdu69405

After bootup SS7 signalling is up but B channels are not ready

CSCdu69747

SS7 link fluctuates and calls are dropped unnder stress on 5800

CSCdv48950

Very poor (unuseably) upload performance from dialup client modems

Symptom: Attempting to upload (port to Egress direction) information larger than a few kilobytes fails or runs extremely slowly.

Conditions: This problem occurs on Cisco AS5850 Access Servers running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(02)XB. The upload will start ok with a "normal" packet rate, but the packet rate will very quickly drop to near zero in both directions of the TCPsession. The packet rate can be observed by issuing

show interfaces async x/y

where x is the slot number and y is the port (modem) number of the modem the problem is occuring on.

Workaround: There is no known workaround.

Note: This issue is not seen on the AS5400 and AS5350 platforms.

CSCdv51292

Symptom: Attempting to upload (port to Egress direction) information larger than a few kilobytes fails or runs extremely slowly. Examples of applications affected are ftp and Microsoft Netbios File sharing.

Conditions: This problem occurs on Cisco AS5800 or AS5850 Access Servers running:

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(01)XS (which has SPE portware version 0.6.108 bundled)

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(02)XB (which has SPE portware 0.7.5.0 bundled)

The upload will start ok with a "normal" packet rate, but the packet rate will very quickly drop to near zero in both directions of the TCP session. The packet rate can be observed by issuing the following command for the Cisco AS5800:

show interfaces async <shelf>/<slot>/<port>

For the Cisco AS5850:

show interfaces async <slot>/<port>

The SPE portware version can be found by issuing the following command:

show spe version

Workaround: There is no known workaround for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(02)XB.

For Cisco IOS Release 12.2(01)XS, a workaround is to use SPE portware version 0.6.93.0. This can be loaded into the SPE's with the following configuration command:

(config)#spe <shelf>/<slot>/<spe> <shelf>/<slot>/<spe>

(config-spe)#firmware location flash:<filename>
