The following are prerequisites to configuring the AIS on Channelized T1E1 feature:

You must be familiar with Cisco IOS software

Overview of Alarm Indication Signal on Failure

This feature allows an AIS alarm to be sent on the T1/E1 line when a CEM transitions to the down state. Typically, this is used to signal to the equipment connected to the CEM that the CEM is in a failed state. This allows the end equipment to trigget switchover to a standby link.


Note By default, this feature is disabled. To use this feature, you must enable it using the ais-on-failure command.


When the feature is enabled and the CEM transitions to a down state, an AIS alarm is sent on the corresponding T1/E1 line. When the CEM transitions back to the up state, the AIS alarm is removed.

How to Configure AIS on CEM

To configure the AIS on channelized T1 or E1 CEM feature, follow this procedure:

SUMMARY STEPS
