The Cisco 3G wireless Modular and Fixed Cisco ISR provides the following software functionality:

Modem activation—You can activate the modem either by using Cisco IOS commands either manually or by using over-the-air service provisioning (OTASP), Internet over-the-air (IOTA) data profile provisioning or the device management protocol specified by OMA-DM.

Modem management—You can access modem software and hardware information, radio and network status, and data profile information by using Cisco IOS commands and SNMP MIBs.

Dial on Demand Routing (DDR)—This allows you to set up a data call when there is data traffic to be sent over the wireless network.

Fallback connection (DDR backup)—The 3G Modular and Fixed Cisco ISR allows you to configure the cellular modem to initiate a dialup connection when connection to a primary service is lost.

Teardown after fallback (part of fallback DDR)—After a primary connection has failed and the cellular connection is in fallback mode, the 3G Modular and Fixed Cisco ISR tears down the fallback-mode connection when the primary connection is available.

Automatic teardown—After a configurable timeout, the 3G Modular and Fixed Cisco ISR automatically tears down a connection if there has been no activity.

Autodetect—The 3G Modular and Fixed Cisco ISR automatically detects and uses the best available service.

Firmware upgrade—You can upgrade the firmware on the modem by using Cisco IOS commands.

Prerequisites for Configuring 3G Wireless

The following are prerequisites to configuring the 3G wireless HWICs:

You must have service availability from a wireless service provider, and you must have network coverage where your router will be physically located. For a complete list of supported carriers, see the data sheet at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/go/3g

You must subscribe to a service plan with a wireless service provider. For manual activation, you will need the following specific information from the provider:

Master Subsidy Lock (MSL) number

Mobile Directory number (MDN)

MSID

The ESN number is on the modem itself, as shown in Figure 3. Make sure that your service is registered with the ESN number. You can also obtain the ESN by using the show cellular hardware command.

You must install the required antennas before you configure the 3G wireless HWIC. See the following URLs for instructions on how to install the antennas:

3G-ANTM1919D—See the Cisco Multiband Swivel Mount Dipole Antenna (3G-ANTM1919D)

3G-ANTM1916-CM—See the Cisco Multiband Omnidirectional Ceiling Mount Antenna (3G-ANTM1916-CM)

3G-AE015-R (Antenna Extension)—See the Cisco Single-Port Antenna Stand for Multiband TNC Male-Terminated Portable Antenna (3G-AE015-R)

3G-ANTMOUT-OM—See the Cisco 3G Omnidirectional Outdoor Antenna (3G-ANTM-OUT-OM)

3G-ANTM-OUT-LP—See the Cisco 3G Low Profile Outdoor Antenna (3G-ANTM-OUT-LP)

3G-ACC-OUT-LA—See the Cisco 3G Lightning Arrestor (3G-ACC-OUT-LA)

You must make sure to check your LEDs for signal reception as described in Table 2.

You should be familiar with Cisco IOS.

Figure 3 Location of the ESN Number

The ESN is located on the modem that is attached to the back of the 3G wireless HWIC. The ESN is just below the barcode.


Restrictions for Configuring 3G Wireless

The following restrictions apply to the Cisco 3G Wireless HWICs:

Data connection can be originated only by the 3G wireless Modular and Fixed Cisco ISRs. Remote dial-in is not supported.

Throughput—Because of the shared nature of wireless communications, the amount of throughput that is experienced varies, depending on the number of active users or congestion in a network.

Cellular networks have higher latency, compared to wired networks. Latency rates depend on the technology and carrier. Latency can increase because of network congestion.

Any restrictions that are a part of the terms of service from your carrier.

Technology Overview

This section contains the following topics:

CDMA Network Overview

Overview of SNMP MIBs

3G Cellular WAN MIB Architecture

Supported Cisco Antennas and Cables

CDMA Network Overview

CDMA is a standard for mobile communication. A typical CDMA network includes terminal equipment, mobile termination, base transceiver station (BTS), base station controller (BSC), packet data serving node (PDSN), and other data network entities. The PDSN is the interface between a BSC and a internet gateway.

Figure 4 shows the relationship of the components of a typical CDMA network, including a PDSN and a branch office with the 3G wireless Modular and Fixed Cisco ISRs.

As the figure shows, the branch office connects to a radio tower and a BTS. The BTS connects to a BSC, which contains a component called the packet control function (PCF). The PCF communicates with the Cisco PDSN for data communication and with the mobile switching center (MSC) for voice.

Figure 4 Overview of the CDMA Network

Overview of SNMP MIBs

Simple Management Network Protocol (SNMP) development and use is centered around the Management Information Base (MIB). An SNMP MIB is an abstract data base, i.e., a conceptual specification for information that a management application may read and modify in a certain form. This does not imply that the information is kept in the managed system in that same form. The SNMP agent translates between the internal data structures and formats of the managed system and the external data structures and formats defined for the MIB.

The SNMP MIB is conceptually a tree structure with conceptual tables. Cisco 3G MIB is discussed in more detail in the next section. Relative to this tree structure, the term MIB is used in two senses. In one sense it is actually a MIB branch, usually containing information for a single aspect of technology, such as a transmission medium or a routing protocol. A MIB used in this sense is more accurately called a MIB module, and is usually defined in a single document. In the other sense a MIB is a collection of such branches. Such a collection might comprise, for example, all the MIB modules implemented by a given agent, or the entire collection of MIB modules defined for SNMP.

A MIB is a tree where the leaves are individual items of data called objects. An object may be, for example, a counter or a protocol status. MIB objects are also sometimes called variables.

MIBs for the 3G cellular Modular and Fixed Cisco ISRs can be classified into three categories:

IF MIBs—describes interface statistics

Cisco-Entity-Vendortype-OID-MIB.my—ENTITY-MIBs are used to provide general hardware type for both the Modular and Fixed Cisco ISRs and the modem. CISCO-ENTITY-VENDORTYPE-OID-MIB assigns OIDs for Cisco components (including the HWICs & the modems). The OIDs are then used as the values of entPhysicalVendorType in the ENTITY-MIB.

3G cellular MIBs—cellular or wireless-specific MIBs

3G Cellular WAN MIB Architecture

This section describes the MIB definition and implementation support for Cisco's cellular 3G WAN products on the customer premises equipment (CPE) end.

The 3G Cellular WAN MIB supports both CDMA and GSM set of cellular standards and includes the following technologies:

GSM—GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA

CDMA—1xRTT/EVDO RevA/EVDO Rev0

The 3G cellular MIB uses indexes from the cellular interface and from the modem. You can obtain the interface index using IF-MIBs and the modem index using the ENTITY MIBs.

The 3G MIB definition includes the following major sub-trees:

Common objects

CDMA objects

GSM objects

Notifications

You can use MIB object c3gStandard defined in the c3gWanCommonTable to distinguish between CDMA or GSM and implementing MIB for CDMA or GSM.


Note Cisco 3G MIB supports both SNMP V3 and V2.


At a high level, the Cisco 3G WAN MIBs are divided into two groups and have the following structure:

1. ciscoWan3gMIBObjects—this group defines all the MIB objects for Cisco 3G WAN MIBs

2. ciscoWan3gMIBNotifs—this group defines all the notification events for Cisco 3G WAN MIBs

ciscoWan3gMIBObjects

The ciscoWan3gMIBObjects group has three sub-groups:

c3gWanCommonTable—defines the common MIB objects for both CDMA and GSM

c3gWanCdma—defines the MIB objects specific for CDMA 2000 standards (3GPP2)

c3gWanGsm—defines the MIB objects specific for GSM/UMTS standards (3GPP)

c3gWanCdma

Under c3gWanCdma, there are seven sub-groups:

c3gCdmaSessionTable for session related objects

c3gCdmaConnectionTable for connection related objects

c3gCdmaIdentityTable for user identity related objects

c3gCdmaNetworkTable for network related objects

c3gCdmaProfile for user profile related objects

c3gCdmaRadio for radio related objects

c3gCdmaSecurityTable for security related objects

c3gWanGsm

Under c3gWANGsm, there are five sub-groups:

c3gGsmIdentityTable for user identity related objects.

c3gGsmNetworkTable for network related objects.

c3gGsmPdpProfile for PDP profile related objects.

c3gGsmRadio for radio related objects.

c3gGsmSecurityTable for security related objects.

ciscoWan3gMIBNotifs

Cisco Cellular 3G WAN MIB implementation supports SNMP GET (read operation) for all MIB objects, and SNMP SET (write operation) for the following RW (read-write) objects and more:

c3gRssiOnsetNotifThreshold

c3gRssiAbateNotifThreshold

c3gEcIoOnsetNotifThreshold

c3gEcIoAbateNotifThreshold

c3gModemTemperOnsetNotifThreshold

c3gModemTemperAbateNotifThreshold

c3gModemReset

c3gModemUpNotifEnabled

c3gModemDownNotifEnabled

c3gServiceChangedNotifEnabled

c3gNetworkChangedNotifEnabled

c3gConnectionStatusChangedNotifFlag

c3gRssiOnsetNotifFlag

c3gRssiAbateNotifFlag

c3gEcIoOnsetNotifFlag

c3gEcIoAbateNotifFlag

c3gModemTemperOnsetNotifEnabled

c3gModemTemperAbateNotifEnabled


Note By default, all notifications are disabled. To receive notifications, you must enable these notifications.



Note The IF MIBs also have traps for the cellular interface objects that are used in conjunction with the notification type. When you get a notification, you must check the associated objects.


Table 5 shows various notifications and what they mean.

Table 5

Traps
Details

ModemUpNotification

Modem successfully recognized.

ModemDown

Crash or power-cycle.

Change Notification

Notifies about changes in service objects related to this notification—previous service type to current service type.

ConnectionStatus

Shows the connection status. Service type is included in this notification.


Traps and Notifications

Restrictions

For the router that runs the SNMP agent, you must configure appropriate access control (e.g. SNMP-server community) using the Cisco IOS CLI for the NMS and agent to work properly.

It is strongly recommended that you configure SNMP V3 with authentication/privacy when implementing SNMP GET and SET operation.

cellular slot/wic_slot/port cdma activate manual mdn msid sid nid msl

For more infomation about the parameters, see the "cellular cdma activate manual" section

In addition to activation, the modem data profile provisioning is done using a process called IOTA. IOTA is initiated automatically when you use the cellular cdma activate manual command.

Here is a sample output from this command:

router#cellular 0/0/0 cdma activate manual 1234567890 1234567890 1234 12 12345 
NAM 0 will be configured and will become Active

Note The IOTA start and end must have "success" as the resulting output. If you receive an error message, you can run IOTA independently by using the cellular cdma activate iota command.



Tip A periodic refresh of the data profile may be needed as required by your carrier. Use the following command to refresh the data profile: cellular cdma activate iota.


Activating Using OMA-DM

When you power up the modem for the first time, the modem automatically initiates Hands Free Activation (HFA) to receive over-the-air programming for the MDN and MSID numbers and refreshes mobile IP profile1 (MIP1). You will see the message "OMA DM Hands Free Activation session is active" on your device.

At the end of the session, you may see one of the following three messages depending on the activation status:

If activation is successful: "OMA DM Hands Free Activation completed successfully"

If activation is unsuccessful, you will see the following message (up to 5 times) indicating that modem is retrying HFA: "OMA DM Hands Free Activation, waiting for retry in <x> seconds".

If activation is still unsuccessful, user will see the message "OMA DM Hands Free Activation Failed - Error: <error_code>(<error_string>). Please try again later. If the problem persists, you may need to contact Customer Service."

To check if the account is provisioned and the modem is activated, use the show cellular profile command. If the account is not activated, use the user-initiated mode using the Cisco IOS CLI to activate your modem.

To activate using the Cisco IOS CLI, use the following command beginning in EXEC mode:

cellular slot/wic/port cdma activate oma-dm device-config

Router#cellular 0/0/0 cdma activate oma-dm device-config
Modem is activated
MIP profile 1 will be updated and will be active, if command is successful

Figure 7 shows a data call setup using the 3G wireless HWIC.

Figure 7 Data Call Setup with the HWIC-3G-CDMA

Configuring the Cellular Interface

To configure the cellular interface, enter the following commands in the cellular interface mode.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. configure terminal

2. interface cellular <slot/wic/port>

3. encapsulation ppp

4. ppp chap password 0 <password>

5. asynchronous mode interactive

6. ip address negotiated


Note The modem supports both mobile IP (MIP) and simple IP (SIP). In both modes, the modem authenticates with the network. However, when the modem is configured in MIP-preferred mode (ask your carrier which mode is supported), if MIP authentication fails, the modem tries to set up a SIP call. The modem uses SIP authentication parameters derived during modem provisioning and passes the CHAP authentication challenge to the cellular interface. The purpose of the authentication challenge is to keep the cellular interface informed of Link Control Protocol (LCP) negotiations between the modem and the network. The authentication challenge from the modem does not have a username, so under the cellular interface, you should configure a default CHAP password, i.e., configure only the ppp chap password and not the ppp chap hostname. If your carrier supports only MIP, you do not need to configure either of the two parameters.


DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

Router# configure terminal 
Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode from the terminal.

Step 2 

Router(config)# interface cellular 
<slot/wic/port>
Example:

Router (config)# interface cellular 0/0/0

Specifies the cellular interface.

Step 3 

Router(config-if)# encapsulation ppp
Example:

Router (config-if)# encapsulation ppp

Specifies PPP encapsulation for an interface configured for dedicated asynchronous mode or dial-on-demand routing (DDR).

Step 4 

Router (config-if)# ppp chap password <password>
Example:

Router (config-if)# ppp chap password cisco

Defines an interface-specific CHAP password.


Note You can set the password to any value. This password is used only when the modem has failed MIP authentication and fails over to SIP mode. The modem ignores the CHAP authentication response from the cellular interface.


Step 5 

Router(config-if)# async mode interactive

Example:

Router (config-if)# async mode interactive

Returns a line that has been placed into dedicated asynchronous network mode to interactive mode, thereby enabling the slip and ppp EXEC commands.

Step 6 

Router(config-if)# ip address negotiated

Example:

Router (config-if)# ip address negotiated

Specifies that the IP address for a particular interface is obtained via PPP/IPCP address negotiation.


Note When static IP address is required for the cellular interface, the address may be configured as ip address negotiated. During IPCP, the network ensures that the correct static IP address is allocated to the device. If a tunnel interface is configured with ip address unnumbered <cellular interface>, it is necessary to configure the actual static IP address under the cellular interface, in place of ip address negotiated. For a sample cellular interface configuration, see "Basic Cellular Interface Configuration: Example" section.

Configuring DDR Backup

To monitor the primary connection and initiate the backup connection when needed, the router can use one of the following methods:

Backup Interface—The backup interface that stays in standby mode until the primary interface line protocol is detected as down and then is brought up.

Floating Static Route—The route through the backup interface has an administrative distance that is greater than the administrative distance of the primary connection route and therefore would not be in the routing table until the primary interface goes down.

Dialer Watch—Dialer watch is a backup feature that integrates dial backup with routing capabilities.

Configuring Interfaces to Use a Backup Interface

To configure one or more interfaces to use a backup interface, use the following commands, beginning in global configuration mode.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. interface type number

2. backup interface cellular number

Configuring Data DedicatedTransmission Mode (DDTM)

On CDMA modems, data transmission is disrupted by incoming voice calls if data dedicated transmission mode (DDTM) is disabled. You can enable DDTM mode so the modem will ignore incoming voice calls.

To enable dedicated data transmission mode (DDTM) on a CDMA modem, use the cdma ddtm command in configuration mode

This command is enabled by default. You can disable this feature by using the no cdma ddtm command.


Note When DDTM is enabled, only voice calls will be blocked for the MC5728v modems, while on the AC597E and MC5725 and MC 5727, incoming SMS messages will also be blocked.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you are encountering issues with the working of the 3G wireless Modular and Fixed Cisco ISRs, this section will help you troubleshoot and pinpoint the cause of failure.

Verifying Configuration

To verify your configuration and to make sure that your connection is up and running, follow these step:


Step 1 After creating a profile with the create cellular profile command, send a ping from a router or attached host.

Step 2 If you do not get any response, to find where failure is occurring, run the following debug commands:

debug chat script

debug PPP negotiation

show cellular all

show interface cellular

show running-config

show controllers cellular

Step 3 Save the output from all these commands and contact your system administrator.


Checking Signal Strength

If the RSSI level is very low, for example, less than -110 dBm, it means one of the following:

Your antenna is not connected

The antenna is not working properly

There is no service in your area

If all the above are connected and working as they should, contact your system administrator.

Call Setup Using CHAT Script

The following is a sample output for a call that is set up using CHAT script. It shows a received IP address from the network and indicates that the call setup is successful and the data path is open:

Debugs enabled:
debug modem
debup chat
debug ppp negotiation

Modem Troubleshooting Using the Diagnostic Port

The RJ-45 port on the faceplate of the 3G wireless HWIC provides access to the debug port on the Sierra Wireless modem. By connecting an industry-standard diagnostic tool, such as Qualcomm CAIT/QXDM or Spirent UDM to this port, you can perform radio-level diagnostics and traffic monitoring on the modem. Use the following test command to turn diagnostics on:

router# test cell-hwic slot/port/wic dm-port on

The cable used to connect the PC/Laptop running the diagnostic tool is the standard Cisco router console cable (RJ-45 to DB-9).


Note To enable test commands, you must enter the service internal command in the global configuration mode.
