Purpose

This task allows you to configure a node for Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) authentication. RADIUS validates remote users who are attempting to connect to the network.

Tools/Equipment

None

Prerequisite Procedures

D60 Log into CTC

Before configuring the node for RADIUS authentication, you must first add the node as a network device on the RADIUS server. Refer to the User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server for more information about configuring a RADIUS server.

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Superuser



Caution Do not configure a node for RADIUS authentication until after you have added that node to the RADIUS server and added the RADIUS server to the list of authenticators. If you do not add the node to a RADIUS server prior to activating RADIUS authentication, no user will be able to access the node. Refer to the User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server for more information about adding a node to a RADIUS server.


Note The following Cisco vendor-specific attribute (VSA) needs to be specified when adding users to the RADIUS server:

shell:priv-lvl=N, where N is:

0 for Retrieve user

1 for Maintenance user

2 for Provisioning user

3 for Superuser



Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Security > RADIUS Server tabs (Figure 18-2).

Figure 18-2 RADIUS Server Tab

Step 2 Click Create to add a RADIUS server to the list of authenticators. The Create RADIUS Server Entry window appears (Figure 18-3).

Figure 18-3 Create RADIUS Server Entry Window

Step 3 Enter the RADIUS server IP address in the IP Address field. If the node is an end network element (ENE), enter the IP address of the gateway network element (GNE) in this field.

The GNE passes authentication requests from the ENEs in its network to the RADIUS server, which grants authentication if the GNE is listed as a client on the server.


Caution Because the ENE nodes use the GNE to pass authentication requests to the RADIUS server, you must add the ENEs to the RADIUS server individually for authentication. If you do not add the ENE node to a RADIUS server prior to activating RADIUS authentication, no user will be able to access the node. Refer to the User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server for more information about adding a node to a RADIUS server.

Step 4 Enter the shared secret in the Shared Secret field. A shared secret is a text string that serves as a password between a RADIUS client and RADIUS server.

Step 5 Enter the RADIUS authentication port number in the Authentication Port field. The default port is 1812. If the node is an ENE, set the authentication port to a number within the range of 1860 to 1869.

Step 6 Enter the RADIUS accounting port in the Accounting Port field. The default port is 1813. If the node is an ENE, set the accounting port to a number within the range of 1870 to 1879.

Step 7 Click OK. The RADIUS server is added to the list of RADIUS authenticators.


Note You can add up to 10 RADIUS servers to a node's list of authenticators.


Step 8 Click Edit to make changes to an existing RADIUS server. You can change the IP address, the shared secret, the authentication port, and the accounting port.

Step 9 Click Delete to delete the selected RADIUS server.

Step 10 Click Move Up or Move Down to reorder the list of RADIUS authenticators. The node requests authentication from the servers sequentially from top to bottom. If one server is unreachable, the node will request authentication from the next RADIUS server on the list.

Step 11 Click the Enable RADIUS Authentication check box to activate remote-server authentication for the node.

Step 12 Click the Enable RADIUS Accounting check box if you want to show RADIUS authentication information in the audit trail.

Step 13 Click the Enable the Node as the Final Authenticator check box if you want the node to be the final autheticator. This means that if every RADIUS authenticator is unavailable, the node will authenticate the login rather than locking the user out.

Step 14 Click Apply to save all changes or Reset to clear all changes.

Step 15 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

PPM Type—Choose the number of ports supported by your SFP/XFP from the drop-down list. If only one port is supported, PPM (1 port) is the only option.

Step 6 Click OK. The newly created port appears in the Pluggable Port Modules area. The row in the Pluggable Port Modules area turns light blue and the Actual Equipment Type column lists the preprovisioned PPM as unknown until the actual SFP/XFP is installed. After the SFP/XFP is installed, the row turns white and the column lists the equipment name.

Step 7 Verify that the PPM appears in the list in the Pluggable Port Modules area. If it does not, repeat Steps 4 through 6.

Step 8 Repeat the task to create a second PPM.

Step 9 Click OK.

Step 10 When you are ready to install the SFP/XFP, complete the "DLP-D335 Install GBIC or SFP/XFP Devices" task.

Step 1 From card, node, or network view, click the Conditions tab.

Step 2 Click Retrieve (Figure 18-5).

The Retrieve button requests the current set of fault conditions from the node, card, or network. The window is not updated when events change on the node. You must click Retrieve to see any changes.

Figure 18-5 Node View Conditions Window

Conditions include all fault conditions raised on the node, whether or not they are reported.


Note Alarms can be unreported when they are filtered out of the display. See the "DLP-D227 Disable Alarm Filtering" task for information.


Events that are reported as Major (MJ), Minor (MN), or Critical (CR) severities are alarms. Events that are reported as Not Alarmed (NA) are conditions. Conditions that are not reported at all are marked NR in the Conditions window severity column.

Conditions that have a default severity of CR, MJ, MN, or NA but are not reported due to exclusion or suppression are shown as NR in the Conditions window.

Current conditions are shown with the severity chosen in the alarm profile, if used. For more information about alarm profiles, see the "NTP-D71 Create, Download, and Assign Alarm Severity Profiles" procedure.


Note When a port is placed in the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state, it raises an Alarms Suppressed for Maintenance (AS-MT) condition. For information about alarm and condition troubleshooting, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.



Note When a port is placed in the Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service state but is not connected to a valid signal, it generates a loss of signal (LOS) alarm.


Step 3 If you want to apply exclusion rules, check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box at the node or network view, but do not check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box in card view.

Step 1 In node view, double-click the CE-100T-8 card graphic to open the card.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > Ether Ports tabs.

Step 3 For each CE-100T-8 port, provision the following parameters:

Port Name—If you want to label the port, enter the port name.


Note Circuit table displays port name of the POS port and not the Ethernet port.


Admin State—Choose Unlocked to put the port in service.

Expected Speed—Choose the expected speed of the device that is or will be attached to the Ethernet port. If you know the speed, choose 100 Mbps or 10 Mbps to match the attached device. If you do not know the speed, choosing Auto enables autonegotiation for the speed of the port, and the CE-100T-8 port will attempt to negotiate a mutually acceptable speed with the attached device.

Expected Duplex—Choose the expected duplex of the device that is or will be attached to the Ethernet port. If you know the duplex, choose Full or Half to match the attached device. If you do not know the duplex, choosing Auto enables autonegotiation for the duplex of the port, and the CE-100T-8 port will attempt to negotiate a mutually acceptable duplex with the attached device.

Enable Flow Control—Click this check box to enable flow control on the port (default). If you do not want to enable flow control, uncheck the box. The CE-100T-8 attempts to negotiate symmetrical flow control with the attached device.

802.1Q VLAN CoS—For a class-of-service (CoS)-tagged frame, the CE-100T-8 can map the eight priorities specified in CoS for either priority or best effort treatment. Any CoS class higher than the class specified in CTC is mapped to priority, which is the treatment geared towards low latency. By default, the CoS is set to 7, which is the highest CoS value. The default results in all traffic being treated as best effort.

IP ToS—The CE-100T-8 can also map any of the 256 priorities specified in IP type of service (ToS) to either priority or best effort treatment. Any ToS class higher than the class specified in CTC is mapped to priority, which is the treatment geared towards low latency. By default, the ToS is set to 255, which is the highest ToS value. This results in all traffic being sent to the best effort queue by default.


Note Untagged traffic is treated as best effort.



Note If traffic is tagged with both CoS and IP ToS, then the CoS value is used, unless the CoS value is 7.


Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 Refresh the Ethernet statistics:

a. Click the Performance > Ether Ports > Statistics tabs.

b. Click Refresh.


Note Reprovisioning an Ethernet port on the CE-100T-8 card does not reset the Ethernet statistics for that port.

Step 1 From the View menu, choose Go to Other Node. In the Select Node dialog box, choose the node where path trace was provisioned on the circuit source and destination ports.

Step 2 Click Circuits.

Step 3 Choose the VC4 circuit that has path trace provisioned on the source and destination ports, then click Edit.

Step 4 In the Edit Circuit window, click the Show Detailed Map check box at the bottom of the window. A detailed circuit graphic showing source and destination ports appears.

Step 5 On the detailed circuit map, right-click the circuit STM-N port (the square on the left or right of the source node icon) and choose Edit Path Trace from the shortcut menu.


Note The STM-N port must be on a receive-only card listed in Table 19-5. If not, the Edit Path Trace menu item does not appear.


Step 6 In the Circuit Path Trace window, enable the path trace expected string by choosing Auto or Manual from the Path Trace Mode drop-down list:

Auto—Uses the first string received from the port at the other path trace end as the current expected string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the baseline is received. For STM-N ports, Auto is recommended because Manual mode requires you to trace the circuit on the Edit Circuit window to determine whether the port is the source or destination path.

Manual—Uses the Current Expected String field as the baseline string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the Current Expected String is received.


Note It is not necessary to set the format (16 or 64 bytes) for the expected string; the path trace process automatically determines the format.


Step 7 If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Manual, enter the string that the STM-N port should receive in the New Expected String field. To do this, trace the circuit path on the detailed circuit window to determine whether the port is in the circuit source or destination path, then set the New Expected String to the string transmitted by the circuit source or destination. If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Auto, skip this step.

Step 8 Click Apply, then click Close.

Step 1 If the SNMP "Get" (or other operation) is enabled on the ONS 15454 SDH configured as a GNE, enter the community name assigned to the GNE in community name field on the MIB browser.


Note The community name is a form of authentication and access control. The community name of the NMS must match the community name assigned to the ONS 15454 SDH.


Step 2 If the SNMP "Get" (or other operation) is enabled for the ENE through a SOCKS proxy-enabled GNE, create a formatted string to enter in the MIB browser community name field. Refer to the following examples when constructing this string for your browser:

Formatted community string input example 1:

allviews{192.168.7.4,,,net7node4}
 
   

If "allviews" is a valid community name value at the proxy-enabled SNMP agent (the GNE), the GNE is expected to forward the PDU to 192.168.7.4 at Port 161. The outgoing PDU will have "net7node4" as the community name. This is the valid community name for the ENE with address 192.168.7.4.

Formatted community string input example 2:

allviews{192.168.7.99,,,enter7{192.168.9.6,161,,net9node6}}
 
   

If "allviews" is a valid community name value at the proxy-enabled GNE, the GNE is expected to forward the PDU to 192.168.7.99 at the default port (Port 161) with a community name of "enter7{192.168.9.6,161,,net9node6}". The system with the address 192.168.7.99 (the NE between the GNE and ENE) forwards this PDU to 192.168.9.6 at Port 161 (at the ENE) with a community name of "net9node6". The community name "enter7" is valid for the NE between the GNE and the ENE and "net9node6" is a valid community name for the ENE.

Step 3 Log into the NMS where the browser is installed to retrieve the network information from the ONS 15454 SDH.

Step 4 On this computer, go to Start and click the SNMP MIB browser application.

Step 5 In the Host and Community areas, enter the IP address of the GNE through which the ONS 15454 SDH with the information to be retrieved can be reached.

Step 6 In the Community area, enter the community string as explained in Step 2.

Caution Do not complete this task until you confirm the role of the node within the network. It will be either an ES, IS Level 1, or IS Level 1/Level 2. This decision must be carefully considered. For additional information about OSI provisioning, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.


Caution Link State Protocol (LSP) buffers must be the same at all NEs within the network, or loss of visibility might occur. Do not modify the LSP buffers unless you confirm that all NEs within the OSI have the same buffer size.


Caution LSP buffer sizes cannot be greater than the LAP-D maximum transmission unit (MTU) size within the OSI area.


Note For ONS 15454 SDH nodes, three virtual routers can be provisioned. The node primary Network Service Access Point (NSAP) address is also the Router 1 primary manual area address. To edit the primary NSAP, you must edit the Router 1 primary manual area address. After you enable Router 1 on the Routers subtab, the Change Primary Area Address button is available to edit the address.



Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tabs.

Step 2 Choose a routing mode:

End System—The ONS 15454 SDH performs OSI end system (ES) functions and relies upon an intermediate system (IS) for communication with nodes that reside within its OSI area.


Note The End System routing mode is not available if more than one virtual router is enabled.


Intermediate System Level 1—The ONS 15454 SDH performs OSI IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It depends upon an IS L1/L2 node to communicate with IS and ES nodes that reside outside its OSI area.

Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2—The ONS 15454 SDH performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It also communicates with IS L1/L2 nodes that reside in other OSI areas. Before choosing this option, verify the following:

The node is connected to another IS Level 1/Level 2 node that resides in a different OSI area.

The node is connected to all nodes within its area that are provisioned as IS L1/L2.

Step 3 If needed, change the LSP data buffers:

L1 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 1 link state protocol data unit (PDU) buffer size. The default is 512. It should not be changed.

L2 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 2 link state PDU buffer size. The default is 512. It should not be changed.

Step 4 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > OSI > TARP > Config tabs.

Step 2 Provision the following parameters, as needed:

TARP PDUs L1 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 1 PDUs that are received by the node and are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 1 OSI area. (Type 1 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a target identifier [TID] within a Level 1 routing area.) The propagation does not occur if the network element (NE) is the target of the Type 1 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.


Note This parameter is not used when the Node Routing Area (Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tab) is set to End System.


TARP PDUs L2 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 2 PDUs received by the node that are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 2 OSI areas. (Type 2 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a TID within a Level 2 routing area.) The propagation occurs if the NE is not the target of the Type 2 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.


Note This parameter is only used when the Node Routing Area is provisioned to Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2.


TARP PDUs Origination—If checked (default), the node performs all TARP origination functions including:

TID-to-NSAP resolution requests (originate TARP Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs)

NSAP-to-TID requests (originate Type 5 PDUs)

TARP address changes (originate Type 4 PDUs)


Note TARP Echo and NSAP to TID is not supported.


TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the node maintains a TARP data cache (TDC). The TDC is a database of TID to NSAP pairs created from TARP Type 3 PDUs received by the node and modified by TARP Type 4 PDUs (TID to NSAP updates or corrections). TARP 3 PDUs are responses to Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs. The TDC can also be populated with static entries entered on the TARP > Static TDC tab.


Note This parameter is only used when the TARP PDUs Origination parameter is enabled.


L2 TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the TIDs and NSAPs of NEs originating Type 2 requests are added to the TDC before the node propagates the requests to other NEs.


Note This parameter is designed for Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes that are connected to other Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes. Enabling the parameter for Intermediate System Level 1 nodes is not recommended.


LDB—If checked (default), enables the TARP loop detection buffer. The LDB prevents TARP PDUs from being sent more than once on the same subnet.


Note The LDP parameter is not used if the Node Routing Mode is provisioned to End System or if the TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not enabled.


LAN TARP Storm Suppression—If checked (default), enables TARP storm suppression. This function prevents redundant TARP PDUs from being unnecessarily propagated across the LAN network.

Send Type 4 PDU on Startup—If checked, a TARP Type 4 PDU is originated during the initial ONS 15454 startup. Type 4 PDUs indicate that a TID or NSAP change has occurred at the NE. (The default setting is not enabled.)

Type 4 PDU Delay—Sets the amount of time that will pass before the Type 4 PDU is generated when Send Type 4 PDU on Startup is enabled. 60 seconds is the default. The range is 0 to 255 seconds.


Note The Send Type 4 PDU on Startup and Type 4 PDU Delay parameters are not used if TARP PDUs Origination is not enabled.


LDB Entry—Sets the TARP loop detection buffer timer. The LDB buffer time is assigned to each LDB entry for which the TARP sequence number (tar-seq) is zero. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 1 to 10 minutes.

LDB Flush—Sets the frequency period for flushing the LDB. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 0 to 1440 minutes.

T1—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 1 PDU. Type 1 PDUs seek a specific NE TID within an OSI Level 1 area. The default is 15 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

T2—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 2 PDU. TARP Type 2 PDUs seek a specific NE TID value within OSI Level 1 and Level 2 areas. The default is 25 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

T3—Sets the amount of time to wait for an address resolution request. The default is 40 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

T4—Sets the amount of time to wait for an error recovery. This timer begins after the T2 timer expires without finding the requested NE TID. The default is 20 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.


Note Timers T1, T2, and T4 are not used if TARP PDUs Origination is not enabled.

Caution IP-over-CLNS tunnels require two end points. You will create one point on an ONS 15454 SDH. The other end point is generally provisioned on non-ONS equipment including routers and other vendor NEs. Before you begin, verify that you have the capability to create an OSI over IP tunnel on the other equipment location.


Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > OSI > Tunnels tabs.

Step 2 Click Create.

Step 3 In the Create IP Over OSI Tunnel dialog box, complete the following fields:

Tunnel Type—Choose a tunnel type:

Cisco—Creates the proprietary Cisco IP tunnel. Cisco IP tunnels add the CLNS header to the IP packets.

GRE—Creates a Generic Routing Encapsulation tunnel. GRE tunnels add the CLNS header and a GRE header to the IP packets.

The Cisco proprietary tunnel is slightly more efficient than the GRE tunnel because it does not add the GRE header to each IP packet. The two tunnel types are not compatible. Most Cisco routers support the Cisco IP tunnel, while only a few support both GRE and Cisco IP tunnels. You generally should create Cisco IP tunnels if you are tunneling between two Cisco routers or between a Cisco router and an ONS node.


Caution Always verify that the IP-over-CLNS tunnel type you choose is supported by the equipment at the other end of the tunnel.

IP Address—Enter the IP address of the IP-over-CLNS tunnel destination.

IP Mask—Enter the IP address subnet mask of the IP-over-CLNS destination.

OSPF Metric—Enter the OSPF metric for sending packets across the IP-over-CLNS tunnel. The OSPF metric, or cost, is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. The default is 110. Normally, it is not be changed unless you are creating multiple tunnel routes and want to prioritize routing by assigning different metrics.

NSAP Address—Enter the destination NE or OSI router NSAP address.

Step 4 Click OK.

Step 5 Provision the other tunnel endpoint using the documentation.

Caution Do not complete this procedure until you confirm the role of the node within the network. It will be either an ES, IS Level 1, or IS Level 1/Level 2. This decision must be carefully considered. For additional information about OSI provisioning, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.


Caution LSP buffers must be the same at all NEs within the network, or loss of visibility could occur. Do not modify the LSP buffers unless you are sure that all NEs within the OSI have the same buffer size.


Caution LSP buffer sizes cannot be greater than the LAP-D MTU size within the OSI area.


Step 1 Verify the following:

All L1/L2 virtual routers on the NE must reside in the same area. This means that all neighboring virtual routers must have at least one common area address.

For OSI L1/L2 to ES routing mode changes, only one L1/L2 virtual router and no more than one subnet can be configured.

For OSI L1 to ES routing mode changes, only one L1 virtual router and no more than one subnet can be configured.

Step 2 In node view, click the Provisioning > OSI tabs.

Step 3 Choose one of the following routing modes:

End System—The ONS 15454 SDH performs OSI IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It depends upon an IS L1/L2 node to communicate with IS and ES nodes that reside outside its OSI area.

Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2—The ONS 15454 SDH performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It also communicates with IS L1/L2 nodes that reside in other OSI areas. Before choosing this option, verify the following:

The node is connected to another IS Level 1/Level 2 node that resides in a different OSI area.

The node is connected to all nodes within its area that are provisioned as IS L1/L2.


Note Changing a routing mode should be carefully considered. Additional information about OSI ESs and ISs and the ES-IS and IS-IS protocols are provided in the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.


Step 4 Although Cisco does not recommend changing the LSP (Link State Protocol Data Unit) buffer sizes, you can adjust the buffers in the following fields:

L1 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 1 link state PDU buffer size.

L2 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 2 link state PDU buffer size.

Caution Changing the IP or NSAP addresses or an IP-over-CLNS tunnel can cause loss of NE visibility or NE isolation. Do not change network addresses until you verify the changes with your network administrator.


Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > OSI > Tunnels tabs.

Step 2 Click Edit.

Step 3 In the Edit IP Over OSI Tunnel dialog box, complete the following fields:

Tunnel Type—Edit the tunnel type:

Cisco—Creates the proprietary Cisco IP tunnel. Cisco IP tunnels add the CLNS header to the IP packets.

GRE—Creates a Generic Routing Encapsulation tunnel. GRE tunnels add the CLNS header and a GRE header to the IP packets.

The Cisco proprietary tunnel is slightly more efficient than the GRE tunnel because it does not add the GRE header to each IP packet. The two tunnel types are not compatible. Most Cisco routers support the Cisco IP tunnel, while only a few support both GRE and Cisco IP tunnels. You generally should create Cisco IP tunnels if you are tunneling between two Cisco routers or between a Cisco router and an ONS node.


Caution Always verify that the IP-over-CLNS tunnel type you choose is supported by the equipment at the other end of the tunnel.

IP Address—Enter the IP address of the IP-over-CLNS tunnel destination.

IP Mask—Enter the IP address subnet mask of the IP-over-CLNS destination.

OSPF Metric—Enter the OSPF metric for sending packets across the IP-over-CLNS tunnel. The OSPF metric, or cost, is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. The default is 110. Normally, it is not be changed unless you are creating multiple tunnel routes and want to prioritize routing by assigning different metrics.

NSAP Address—Enter the destination NE or OSI router NSAP address.

Step 4 Click OK.

Step 2 Observe the Timing Mode field to see the type of timing (Line, External, Mixed) that has been set for that node.

Step 3 Scroll down to the Reference List and observe the NE Reference fields to see the timing references provisioned for that node.

Step 4 If the removed node was the only building integrated timing supply (BITS) timing source, perform the following:

a. Contact your synchronization coordinator or appropriate personnel before continuing with this procedure.

b. Look for another node on the ring that can be used as a BITS source and set that node's Timing Mode to External. Choose that node as the primary timing source for all other nodes in the ring. See the "DLP-D157 Change the Node Timing Source" task.

c. If no node in the reduced ring can be used as a BITS source, choose one node to be your internal timing source. Set that node's Timing Mode to External, set the BITS-1 and BITS-2 BITS In State to OOS, and set the NE Reference to Internal. Then, choose line timing for all other nodes in the ring. This forces the first node to be their primary timing source. (See the "DLP-D157 Change the Node Timing Source" task.)


Note This type of timing conforms to SETS requirements and is not considered optimal.


Step 5 If the removed node was not the only BITS timing source, provision the adjacent nodes to line timing using SDH links (east and west) as timing sources, traceable to the node with external BITS timing. See the "NTP-D28 Set Up Timing" procedure.
