Digital Link

Verilink

Adtran

Larscom

Kentrox

T1 Lines

The T1 lines support the following:

Local, line, and remote loopback.

DS-1 facilities data link (FDL) in Extended Super Frame (ESF) framing

Bit error rate testing (BERT) is supported on each of the T1 lines. It can be done over a framed or unframed DS-1 signal. The OSM-CHOC12/T1 modules allow a maximum of 6 simultaneous T1 BER tests in each group of 84 T1 lines associated with three contiguous STS-1s. Thus there may be up to 6 active T1 BER tests in an OC-3 port or 24 active T1 BER tests in an OC-12 port.


Note BERT channel-groups and timeslots are also supported for both SDH and SONET.


In the channelized mode of operation, an OC-12/T1 OSM port can be channelized into a maximum of 336 T1 lines. Each of the T1 lines contains 24 timeslots or 64 or 56 kbps each. The T1 lines can support one or more user data channels, which appear to the system as serial interfaces. You can group the timeslots into individual logical channel groups, each of which may carry data with different data link layer protocol encapsulations. You are limited to a total of 1024 logical channel groups per port.

Each logical channel group can be composed of individual 64-kbps or 56-kbps timeslots and ranges of timeslots, for example, 1, 9, 12-14. Each logical channel group can contain from 1-24 timeslots maximum; the same timeslot cannot be used in more than one logical channel group. Any unused timeslots are filled with programmable idle-channel data.


Note If you assign only one channel group to an T1 line, it is a fractional T1 line. If you assign more than one channel group to an T1 line, it is a channelized T1 line.


E1 Lines

The E1 lines support the following:

Local, line, and remote loopback.

Any of the E1 lines can be configured as either E1 frames or E1 cyclic redundancy check (CRC) multiframes, as specified by CCITT/ITU G.704 and G.706.

Bit error rate testing (BERT) is supported on each of the E1 lines. It can be done over a framed or unframed E1 signal. The OSM-CHOC12/T1 modules allow up to 6 simultaneous E1 BER tests in each group of 63 E1 lines associated with each STM-1 port and 24 simultaneous E1 tests per STM-4 port.


Note BERT channel-groups and timeslots are also supported for both SDH and SONET.


Channelized E1—Any of the E1 lines can be configured as channelized E1 lines, but you are limited to a total of 1023 logical channels. You can group the time slots in these E1 lines into several individual logical channel groups, each of which carries data with different data link layer protocol encapsulations.

Each logical channel group can be composed of individual 64-kbps or 56-kbps timeslots and ranges of timeslots, for example, 1, 9, 12-14. Each logical channel group can contain from 1-31 timeslots maximum; the same timeslot cannot be used in more than one logical channel group. Any unused timeslots are filled with programmable idle-channel data.

Fractional E1— A fractional E1 line is a subset of the full E1 bandwidth, which uses n x 64 kbps; where n is a timeslot in the range of 1-31.

Fractional E1 lines contain only a single logical channel group that can be either a single 64-kbps timeslot or a range of timeslots; for example timeslot 1, or timeslots 15-23. Any unused timeslots are filled with programmable idle-channel data.


Note If you assign only one channel group to an E1 line, it is a fractional E1 line. If you assign more than one channel group to an E1 line, it is a channelized E1 line.


Unframed E1—Any of the E1 lines can be configured as unframed E1 data lines. Each unframed E1 line contains no framing overhead and is not timeslot divided.

DS0 Lines

T1 and E1 lines can be channelized down to DS0/64kbps or DS0/56kbps. See the "Configuring the T1 Lines" section for configuration information.

This chapter includes these sections:

Configuring the SONET Controller

Configuring STS-1 Path Attributes under SONET Framing

Configuring the POS Interface

Configuring T3 Links Under SONET Framing

Configuring CT3 Links Under SONET Framing

Configuring VT-15 Links Under SONET Framing

Configuring Interfaces Using SDH Framing with AU-3 Mapping

Configuring Interfaces Using SDH Framing with AU-4 Mapping

Configuring the SONET Controller

To configure the SONET controller, peform this task:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

Router# configure terminal

Enters configuration mode and specifies that the console terminal is the source of the configuration subcommands.

Step 2 

Router(config)# controller sonet slot/port

Selects a port and enters controller configuration mode.

Step 3 

Router(config-controller)# [no] framing {sonet | sdh}

Configures the framing mode to SONET or SDH.

SDH is the ITU standards equivalent of SONET.

SONET is the default.

Step 4 

Router(config-controller)# [no] channelized

Configures the link for channelization or clear channel POS. The no channelized command configures the link for clear channel OC-12 POS. The channelized command unprovisions the OC-12 POS clear channel.

Step 5 

Router(config-controller)# sts-1 {1-12} interface type

Provisions the channels for serial or POS interface.

Step 6 

Router(config-controller)# clock source {internal | 
line | common [internal | primary | secondary]}

Configures the clock source used by the SONET controller.

internal—sets sonet port to internal clock

line—sets sonet port to line (network) clock

common internal—sets internal clock for common telcom bus

common primary—sets port as primary source for common telcom bus

common secondary—sets port as secondary source for common telcom bus

The network clocking source is the default.

Step 7 

Router(config-controller)# [no] loopback {local network}

Enables or disables loopback mode on a SONET controller.

local—Sets the loopback after going through the framer toward the terminal.

network—Data is looped from the external port to the transmit port and back out the external port.

No loopback enabled is the default.

Step 8 

Router(config-controller)# alarm-report {all | b1-tca | b2-tca | b3-tca | lais | lrdi | plop | pplm | prdi |ptim | puneq | sd-ber | sf-ber | slof | slos}

Optional) Enables alarm reporting.

Step 9 

Router(config-controller)# threshold {b1-tca value | b2-tca value| b3-tca value| sd-ber value| sf-ber value}

(Optional) Sets BER threshold values.

Step 10 

Router(config-controller)# ais-shut

(Optional) Specifies an Alarm Indication Signal (AIS) to be sent when a POS interface is shut down.

Step 11 

Router(config-controller)# overhead [j0 {0-255 | expect 0-255} | s1s0 {0-3 | ignore}]

(Optional) Sets the overhead bytes.

j0—sets the j0 overhead bytes to transmit a number between 0 to 255 or to expect to receive a number between 0 to 255.

s1s0 —sets the s1s0 bits of H1 to a number between 0-3 or to ignore the s1s0 overhead bit.

Step 12 

Router(config-controller)# [no] description string

(Optional) Specifies up to 80 characters of text describing the SONET controller. No description is the default.


Note The clock source [internal | line] commands set the OC-12 or OC-3 port's SONET transmit clock source to either a local on-board Stratum-3 oscillator or to the port's received line clock. The clock source common [internal | primary | secondary] commands set the clock source for a telcom bus that interconnects logic inside the board. The internal command option sets the bus clock to the local Stratum-3 oscillator. The primary and secondary command options set the bus clock to the port's received line clock. One port will be set to primary and the other port set to secondary. As long as the primary port does not experience a loss of signal (LOS), its received line clock will be the telcom bus clock source. If the primary port experiences a LOS, the telcom bus clock is switched to the secondary port. The clock source switches back to the primary port when it recovers from the LOS. If no s econdary port has been defined, or if both ports have a LOS, then the bus clock source iswitches to the local Stratum-3 oscillator until the LOS condition is cleared. To avoid pointer adjustments on a port, its transmit clock should be from the same source as the common clock, that is, clock source internal and clock source common internal or clock source line and clock source common primary.


Configuring STS-1 Path Attributes under SONET Framing

To enter STS-1 path configuration mode to configure an STS-1 path under SONET framing, perform the following task:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

Router(config)# controller sonet slot/port

Selects a port and enters controller configuration mode.

Step 2 

Router(config-controller)# [no] framing {sonet | sdh}

Configures the framing mode to SONET or SDH.

SDH is the ITU standards equivalent of SONET.

SONET is the default.

Step 3 

Router(config-controller)# sts-1 {number | number 
range POS}

Enters STS-1 path configuration mode. Use the number range option is for OC-3 POS link configuration.

Step 4 

Router(config-crtlr-sts1)# [no] mode {ct3 | t3 | vt-15 
}

Specifies the mode of operation for the STS-1. Use the no mode ct3 | t3 command to unprovision sts-1 links configured for these modes.

When you select ct3, the specified STS-1 will carry a DS3 signal divided into 28 T1s (multiplexed asynchronously). When you select t3, the specified STS-1 will carry an unchannelized T3 signal. When you select vt-15, the specified STS-1 is divided into seven virtual tributary groups (VTGs). Each of those VTGs is then divided into four VT1.5s, each carrying one T1. To configure the T1 lines, use the STS-1 path configuration commands described in the "Configuring the T1 Lines" section.

The example that follows selects vt-15 as the STS-1 mode of operation:

Router(config)# controller sonet 6/1
Router(config-controller)# framing sonet
Router(config-controller)# sts-1 3
Router(config-ctrlr-sts1)# mode vt-15

Configuring the POS Interface

After you have configured a POS link from the controller level, you can configure the POS interface. The configuration below is basic, and you may need to specify additional interface parameters depending on your network requirements.
