Overview

The universal port DFC provides multiple port sessions, with each session capable of originating or terminating a session over a DS-0 in PCM format. The number of sessions depends on the port density of the card. You can install a universal port DFC in any DFC slot of the universal gateway chassis. The universal port DFC does not require external connections. (See Figure 5-1.)

Figure 5-1 Universal Port DFC

Online Insertion and Removal (OIR) of the Universal Port DFC

Overview

To remove a DFC without dropping any calls or connections, you will need to take the DFC out of service by using the busyout command to disable the DFC. The busyout command is executed on a per DFC basis and will gracefully disable the card by waiting for the active services to terminate.

If you have active calls on the DFC after executing the busyout command, wait for the calls to drop. Use the show busyout command to view the status of the termination process.


Caution To avoid erroneous failure messages, remove or insert only one DFC at a time.

When you replace a DFC with a new DFC of the same type in the same slot, the system software will recognize the new trunk interfaces and bring them up automatically.

If you replace the existing DFC with a new DFC of a different type, you will have to reconfigure the system. For configuration details, refer to the Cisco AS5350 and Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway Software Configuration Guide. For information on voice and fax commands, refer to the
Monitoring Voice and Fax Services on the Cisco AS5350 and Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateways online document.

Removing the Universal Port DFC

To remove the universal port DFC, follow these steps:


Note Following these steps are examples of the output of each command.



Step 1 Determine which slot the DFC is in (see Figure 5-2 and Figure 5-3) by entering the show chassis command in privileged EXEC mode:

Router# show chassis slot

Figure 5-2 Slot Numbering on the Cisco AS5350 Chassis

Figure 5-3 Slot Numbering on the Cisco AS5400 Chassis

Step 2 Initialize the software busyout procedure by entering the busyout command:

Router# busyout slot-number

Step 3 Enter the show busyout command to check busyout status for that specific slot:

Router# show busyout slot-number

Step 4 You may use the clear port command to immediately disable active calls on the universal port card.

Router# clear port slot-number/port number

Step 5 Verify that the OIR/MAINT LED is off; this indicates that the DFC is offline and ready to be removed.


Note The OK/MAINT LED is green before you enter the busyout command. After you enter the busyout command, the LED changes to yellow. The LED turns off after all calls are disconnected and resources taken out of service, indicating that busyout is complete.


Step 6 Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap.


Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.


Step 7 Disconnect all interface cables from the DFC.

Step 8 Loosen the two captive screws that secure the DFC to the chassis until each screw is free of the chassis. (See Figure 5-4 and Figure 5-5.)

Figure 5-4 Loosen the Captive Screws on the Cisco AS5350

Figure 5-5 Loosen the Captive Screws on the Cisco AS5400

Step 9 Grasp the DFC handle with one hand and pull the card toward you until the card slides free of the chassis. Grasp the ventilated metal cover with your other hand to support and guide the DFC out of the slot. (See Figure 5-6 and Figure 5-7.)

Figure 5-6 Remove the DFC from the Cisco AS5350

Figure 5-7 Remove the DFC from the Cisco AS5400


Caution Avoid touching any pins or circuit board components during removal and installation of a DFC.

Step 10 After you remove the DFC, set it aside on an ESD-preventive mat.

Step 11 If the DFC slot is to remain empty, install a blank cover over the open DFC slot to ensure proper airflow inside the chassis. (See Figure 5-8.)

Installing the Universal Port DFC


Warning Do not work on the system or connect or disconnect cables during periods of lightning activity. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.



Note When you replace a DFC with a new DFC of the same type in the same slot, the system software will recognize the new trunk interfaces and bring them up automatically. If you replace the existing DFC with a new DFC of a different type, you will have to reconfigure the system. For configuration details, refer to the Cisco AS5350 and Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway Software Configuration Guide.


To install the universal port DFC, follow these steps:


Step 1 Attach an ESD preventive wrist strap.

Step 2 Slide the DFC into the slot until the connector pins make contact with the carrier card backplane connector. (See Figure 5-9 and Figure 5-10.)

Figure 5-9 Install the Universal Port DFC in the Cisco AS5350

Figure 5-10 Install the Universal Port DFC in the Cisco AS5400

Step 3 Align the captive screws with their holes, and then seat the card completely.

Step 4 Seat the DFC in the carrier by pushing the card firmly until the captive screws are aligned with their holes.

Step 5 Tighten the screws to secure the DFC to the chassis. (See Figure 5-11 and Figure 5-12.)

Figure 5-11 Tighten the Captive Screws on the Cisco AS5350

Figure 5-12 Tighten the Captive Screws on the Cisco AS5400

Step 6 Check the card LEDs to verify that the card is working properly. For information about dial feature card LEDs, refer to Chapter 6, "Troubleshooting"


SPE Firmware

SPE firmware is automatically downloaded to a universal port DFC from the Cisco IOS image when you boot the system for the first time, or when you insert a universal port DFC while the system is operating. When you insert DFCs while the system is operating, the Cisco IOS image recognizes the cards and downloads the required firmware to the cards.

For more information on universal port software and upgrade options, refer to the Cisco AS5350 and Cisco AS5400 Universal Gateway Software Configuration Guide.

For information on managing universal port services, refer to Managing Port Services on the Cisco  5350 Universal Gateway and Managing Port Services on the Cisco  AS5400 Universal Gateway.
