Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Overview

The Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server is a high-density, ISDN and modem WAN aggregation system that provides both digital and analog call termination. It is intended to be used in service provider dial point-of-presence (POP), or centralized enterprise dial environments. The access server chassis components include a Cisco 5814 dial shelf and a Cisco 7206 router shelf. An optional AC power shelf is also available.

The dial shelf and router shelf are bundled, and can be ordered to support either AC or DC power. Included in the dial shelf is a blower assembly, filter module, and power entry modules (PEMs). Also included in the bundled system are ingress trunk cards, modem cards, dial shelf controller cards, Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) Flash memory cards, cables, and Cisco IOS software. The dial shelf feature cards and host router shelf communicate via a proprietary dial shelf interconnect cable.

The dial shelf contains 14 slots (numbered 0 through 13 on the backplane). The dial shelf can support up to 10 modem cards, 2 trunk cards, and 2 dial shelf controller cards. Only slot 0 through slot 5 are designed to recognize trunk cards and are prioritized for clock selection beginning with slot 0; therefore, you must install trunk cards in the first 6 slots.


Note   The Cisco AS5800 access server currently only supports a maximum of 2 CT1 trunk cards, 1 CT3 trunk card, or 1 CT1 and 1 CT3 card installed in any of the dial shelf slots 0 through 5.


The router shelf supports the dial shelf and performs all routing and packet processing. The router shelf also houses the main system software images.

CT3 Trunk Card Overview

The CT3 trunk card contains an onboard M13 multiplexer, which multiplexes 28 separate T1 lines into a single T3 line. Each CT3 trunk card installed in the Cisco 5814 dial shelf contains all necessary functionality to terminate link signaling and incoming digital calls.

shows the CT3 trunk card components.

Figure 3 CT3 Trunk Card

Each CT3 trunk card performs the following functions:

Provides physical termination for up to 672 sessions.

Provides digital termination for up to 256 DS-0 connections (calls) using onboard HDLC controllers. Note that the D-channel of a PRI consumes a single channel of an HDLC controller.

Removes framing and embedded signaling bits (or inserts them depending on the direction of the flow), demultiplexing the calls. The framer CPU sends the data stream to onboard time-division multiplexing (TDM) resources, which break out each call and passes each call to an appropriate call termination resource. Digital or ISDN-originated calls are terminated onboard the CT3 trunk card on HDLC controllers.


Note   Each D-channel consumes an HDLC controller.


Analog modem-originated calls are passed over the dial shelf backplane TDM bus to an available modem resource. The system software controls modem and HDLC resource management.

Responds to time-sensitive signaling. Each CT3 trunk card can supply two clocks from any two of its 28 ports. You can assign priorities to these clocks or accept the default values assigned by the software.

Processes counting information for performance monitoring.

Supports online insertion and removal (OIR), a feature that allows you to remove and replace a trunk card in the Cisco 5814 dial shelf while the system is operating without disrupting other cards and their associated calls. If you remove a trunk card while the system is operating, all calls associated with the CT3 lines on that card are dropped. Calls being handled by other trunk or modem cards, however, are not affected. For more information, see the "Online Insertion and Removal" section.

Clocking

All Cisco AS5800 access server trunk cards use the same transmit clock. This clock can originate from several sources, which are as follows:

TDM clock source—A priority value between 1 and 50 that is applied to a clock source using multiple clock sources.

External clock source—A clock source external to the access server.

Default priority values for clocking are based on the following:

Clocks are prioritized by slot number (slot 0 to slot 5). The highest priority clock is selected from the card in slot 0. If this clock fails, the highest priority clock from the card in slot 1 becomes the default clock, and so forth.

The trunk card then forwards the clocks to the dial shelf controller. The dial shelf controller selects the highest priority clock as the system primary clock, and the rest of the clocks remain in a prioritized backup queue.

Instead of using the default algorithm for clock selection, you can specify clocks through global configuration, and select a maximum of 2 clocks per trunk card.

If you configure fewer than 2 clocks on a trunk card and all other configured clocks fail, the clock selection will resort to the default algorithm on that card and the second clock will be selected automatically.

CT3 Clocking

CT3 trunk cards are usually attached to an external device, such as a Digital Access and Cross Connect System (DACS) or Add-Drop multiplexer (ADM). This point-to-point link requires a single clock source to which the CT3 link is timed. You must determine whether you want the CT3 trunk card or external device as the primary clock source and configure it accordingly during the software configuration process, which is discussed later in this document.

CT1 Clocking

The CT3 trunk card has 28 T1 framers that always get their clock from the line. As a result, the configuration of T1 clock sources is not allowed.

LED and Alphanumeric Indicators

The CT3 trunk card front panel is designed with an alphanumeric display to provide trunk card status, as shown in .

CT3 Trunk Card Specifications

Using the Test Port

The CT3 trunk card front panel is designed with an alphanumeric display to provide trunk card status and port level monitoring information (see ).

Test port functionality is supported by Cisco IOS Release 12.0(6)T and later releases.

Trunk Card Bantam Jacks

The test port is a set of bantam jack connectors located at the bottom of the CT3 front panel (see ). The bantam jacks allow the connection of an external test device (for example, a FIREBERD test device) to test any of the 28 individual T1 circuits in drop-insert mode or to monitor the individual T1 circuit in monitor mode.

In monitor mode, you can only monitor the ingress side of the T1 line. The T1 line being monitored is not disrupted, and the line maintains its HDLC and modem connections through TDM.

In drop-insert mode, the T1 line is dropped out of service. To prevent accidental use of the pushbutton in drop-insert mode, use the test trunk drop-insert privileged EXEC command to disable the drop-insert mode on the specified T3 controller. See the next section "Drop-Insert Mode" for details.

Drop-Insert Mode

The test trunk drop-insert privileged EXEC command is used to enable or disable drop-insert mode on a T3 controller. When the system initially boots up, the drop-insert mode is disabled on all T3 controllers.

To drop a particular T1 line to the test port, follow these steps:


Step 1 Enable drop-insert mode by entering the test trunk drop-insert on privileged EXEC command as follows:

5800# test trunk drop-insert on shelf/slot/unit

Note   The shelf/slot/unit refers to the CT3 controller.


Step 2 Push and quickly release the pushbutton below the LED to toggle to the port number. The pushbutton is labeled monitor # in .


Note   You must release the pushbutton within 2 sec to advance through the port numbers (from 1 to 28). After port 28, the display returns to port 1.


Step 3 Push and hold the pushbutton for 2 or more sec.

The letter "D" (indicating drop-insert) is displayed in the front panel LED, indicating that the particular T1 line has been dropped to the test port.


Note   To select another port number, press the pushbutton again and hold it for 2 or more sec. You can now toggle to another port number.


Step 4 Disable the drop-insert mode after testing the T1 lines. We recommend that you disable drop-insert mode to prevent accidental use of the pushbutton on the CT3 board.

To disable drop-insert mode, enter the test trunk drop-insert off privileged EXEC command as follows:

5800# test trunk drop-insert off shelf/slot/unit

Monitor Mode

To monitor a particular T1 line at the test port, follow these steps:


Step 1 Verify if drop-insert mode is disabled on the CT3 controller by entering the show command as follows:

5800# sh controller t3 shelf/slot/unit

The following is sample output from the sh controller t3 command if drop-insert mode is disabled:

as5800# show controller t3 1/1/0
T3 1/1/0 is up.
Applique type is Channelized T3
No alarms detected.
FEAC code received: No code is being received
Framing is M23, Line Code B3ZS, Clock Source is Internal
Drop-insert is disabled
Data in current interval (90 seconds elapsed):
 0 Line Code Violations, 0 P-bit Coding Violation
 0 C-bit Coding Violation, 0 P-bit Err Secs
 0 P-bit Severely Err Secs, 0 Severely Err Framing Secs
 0 Unavailable Secs, 0 Line Errored Secs
 0 C-bit Errored Secs, 0 C-bit Severely Errored Secs
as5800#

Note   If the display shows "Drop-insert is enabled," repeat Step 4 on page 13.


Step 2 Push and quickly release the pushbutton below the LED to toggle to the port number. The pushbutton is labeled monitor # in .


Note   You must release the pushbutton within 2 seconds to advance through the port numbers (from 1 to 28). After port 28, the display returns to port 1.


Step 3 Push and hold the pushbutton for 2 or more seconds.

The letter "M" (indicating monitor) is displayed in the front panel LED, indicating that you can monitor the particular T1 line at the test port.


Note   To select another port number, press the pushbutton again and hold it for 2 or more sec. You can now toggle to another port number.


Online Insertion and Removal

The Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server supports online insertion and removal (OIR). This feature allows you to remove and replace a T3 trunk card while the system is operating, without affecting system operation.


Tips

This section describes system component mechanical functions and emphasizes the importance of following the correct procedures to avoid unnecessary circuit card failures. This section is for background information only. Refer to the section "Replacing or Installing a Trunk Card," page 18 for specific procedures regarding the CT3 trunk card.


Each card contains a female connector that connects to a male connector on the system backplane. Each male backplane connector comprises a set of tiered pins, in 2 lengths. The backplane pins send specific signals to the system as they make contact with the card connectors. The system assesses the signals it receives and the order in which it receives them to determine what event is occurring and what task it needs to perform, such as reinitializing new interfaces or shutting down removed ones.

Each card is designed with 2 ejector levers to be used when you install or remove a card, as shown in . The function of the ejector levers is to align and securely seat the card connectors in the backplane.

Figure 8 Card Ejector Levers


Caution   
Do not force the dial shelf controller cards or feature cards into a slot, as this can damage the backplane connector pins if they are not aligned properly with the card connectors.


Tips

To avoid erroneous messages, you must allow at least 15 sec for the system to reinitialize and note current interface configurations before you remove or insert a dial shelf controller card or feature card in the dial shelf.


Safety Guidelines

This section provides safety and ESD-prevention guidelines to help you avoid injury to yourself and avoid damage to the equipment. Cisco recommends the following safety guidelines when working with any equipment that connects to electrical power or telephone wiring:

Locate the emergency power-off switch for the room you are working in before beginning any procedures requiring access to the chassis interior.

Never work alone when potentially hazardous conditions exist.

Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit; always check.

Never perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes the equipment unsafe.

Carefully examine your work area for possible hazards such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

This unit is to be installed in a restricted access area in accordance with articles 110-16, 110-17, and 110-18 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.

Telephone Wiring Guidelines

Cisco recommends the following guidelines when working with any equipment that is connected to telephone wiring or other network cabling:

Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.

Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.

Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the network interface.

Always use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damages equipment and impairs electrical circuitry. ESD occurs when printed circuit cards are improperly handled and results in complete or intermittent failures.

The system feature cards and dial shelf controller cards consist of a printed circuit board that is fixed in a metal carrier. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, connectors, and ejector levers are integral components of the carrier. Handle the cards by their carrier edges or ejector levers only; never touch the printed circuitry, card components, or connector pins.

Although the metal carrier helps to protect the printed circuitry from ESD, you should wear a preventive antistatic strap whenever handling feature cards or dial shelf controller cards. Ensure that the strap makes good skin contact, and connect the strap's clip to an unpainted chassis surface to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground.

The following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD wrist strap or ankle strap when installing or replacing system components. Ensure that the ESD strap makes contact with your skin.

Handle the trunk cards by their metal carrier edges and handles only; avoid touching the printed circuit card components or any connector pins.

Place all system components that have been removed on an antistatic surface with the printed circuit card components facing upward, or in a static shielding bag. If you are returning a feature card to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding bag.


Caution   
Periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be within the range of 1 and 10 megohm.

Replacing or Installing a Trunk Card

Depending on your configuration requirements, you might need to replace existing trunk cards or install new trunk cards in your Cisco 5814 dial shelf. Because the system only recognizes trunk cards installed in the first 6 slots, you must install trunk cards in slots numbered 0 through 5 on the dial shelf backplane.


Note   The online insertion and removal feature allows you to install and remove a trunk card without powering OFF system power. Refer to the section "Online Insertion and Removal," page 14 for a description of OIR.


This section describes the steps to remove and replace a trunk card from the dial shelf, and includes the following items:

Verifying and Troubleshooting the Installation

Configuring Your CT3 Trunk Card

If you are replacing a trunk card with a new trunk card of the same type in the same slot, the system software recognizes the new trunk card interfaces and brings them up automatically. No additional configuration is needed.

If you are replacing a CT1 trunk card with a CT3 card (or vice versa), you need to modify your running configuration file. Software configuration commands are defined in the section "Configuring Your CT3 Trunk Card," page 25.

For additional software configuration information, refer to the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Software Installation and Configuration Guide that shipped with your system.

Busyout Command-Line Interface

To remove a trunk card without dropping the calls or connections, you must first take the trunk card out of service by using the busyout command to busyout DS0s and modem resources as calls are completed. The busyout command is executed on a per-card (slot) basis.

The busyout command has the format busyout shelf-number/slot-number, where shelf number is a user-designated value from 0-9999, and slot number is recognized in slot 0 through slot 5. The user designated value is generally configured during the initial setup configuration process.

Caution   
Trunk cards weigh 8 lb (3.6 kg) each. Use both hands when removing or replacing a trunk card.

To remove a trunk card from the Cisco 5814 dial shelf, follow these steps:


Step 1 Note the slot in which the trunk card is installed. If you decide to install the new trunk card in the same slot, this will expedite the installation process.

Step 2 Initialize the software busyout procedure by entering the busyout command (see "Busyout Command-Line Interface" section).

Step 3 Verify the yellow maintenance (MAINT) LED lights on the trunk card, which indicates the card is offline and ready to be removed.

Step 4 Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unpainted chassis surface.


Caution   
To prevent ESD damage, handle trunk cards by ejector levers and carrier edges only, and use an ESD-preventive wrist strap or other grounding device.

Step 5 Disconnect all CT3 trunk line cables and secure them out of the way using cable ties, if necessary.

Step 6 Loosen the panel fasteners at the top (see ) and bottom of the trunk card front panel using a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver.

Figure 9 Using the Ejector Levers

Step 7 Pull either the top or bottom ejector lever away from the trunk card front panel to disengage the trunk card from the backplane connector, as shown in .


Caution   
Always use the ejector levers to disengage or seat trunk cards, modem cards, or dial shelf controller cards in the backplane. Failure to do so can cause erroneous system error messages indicating a card failure; however, do not use the ejector levers to lift or support the weight of the cards.

Step 8 Grasp the ejector levers and pull the trunk card partially from the dial shelf slot until you can grasp the trunk card front panel with 1 hand. Place your other hand under the trunk card to balance the weight of the card as you pull it from the slot, as shown in .

Step 9 Pull the trunk card straight out of the slot. Avoid touching the circuitry or any connector pins.

Figure 10 Removing the CT3 Trunk Card

Step 10 Place the removed trunk card on an antistatic mat or foam pad until you are ready to reinstall it in the chassis. If you plan to return the card to the factory, place it in an antistatic bag.

This completes the trunk card removal procedure. Proceed to the section "Installing a Trunk Card."

Installing a Trunk Card

To install the trunk card in the Cisco 5814 dial shelf, follow these steps:


Caution   
Trunk cards weigh 8.0 lb (3.6 kg) each. Use both hands when removing or replacing a trunk card.


Step 1 Ensure your ESD-preventive wrist strap is attached between you and an unpainted chassis surface.


Caution   
To prevent ESD damage, handle trunk cards by ejector levers and carrier edges only, and use an ESD-preventive wrist strap or other grounding device.

Step 2 Carefully align the trunk card carrier guides with the top and bottom grooves in the dial shelf slot. Avoid touching the circuitry or any connector pins.

Step 3 Slide the trunk card into the slot until the ejector levers make contact with the chassis frame.

Step 4 Seat the trunk card in the backplane by pushing the card firmly until the ejector levers fold in toward the trunk card front panel, and the front panel is flush with the chassis frame.


Caution   
Always use the ejector levers to disengage or seat trunk cards, modem cards, or dial shelf controller cards in the backplane. Failure to do so can cause erroneous system error messages indicating a card failure; however, do not use the ejector levers to lift or support the weight of the cards.

Step 5 Tighten the panel fasteners using a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver. This secures the backplane connection and ensures proper EMI shielding.


Caution   
Always tighten the panel fasteners on trunk cards. These fasteners prevent accidental removal and provide proper grounding for the system.

Step 6 Install a blank filler card (DS58-BLANK=) in all empty card slots to keep the chassis dust free and to maintain proper airflow.

Step 7 Enter the no busyout command.

Step 8 Repeat Step 2 through Step 7 for any other trunk cards you want to replace.


Caution   
To avoid erroneous failure messages, remove or insert only 1 trunk card at a time. Also, after inserting or removing a trunk card, allow at least 15 seconds before removing or inserting another trunk card so that the system can reinitialize and note the current configuration of all interfaces.


Caution   
To prevent the overheating of internal components, always install blank filler cards in empty slots to maintain the proper flow of cooling air across the cards.


Note   The system brings online only interfaces that match the current configuration and were previously configured as up; all other interfaces require that you configure them with the configure command. For information on the configure command, refer to the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Software Installation and Configuration Guide that shipped with your system.


This completes the trunk card replacement procedure. Proceed to the section "Connecting Cables" to attach the interface cables.

Connecting Cables

The CT3 trunk card receives and transmits 45 Mbps signals through a 75-ohm cable, using common female BNC coaxial cable connectors. There are 2 female BNC connectors: 1 for T3 transmit data and 1 for T3 receive data. Use a 75-ohm coaxial cable to connect the T3 lines. (See .)

To connect the T3 lines, follow these steps:


Step 1 Attach the end of the T3 cable(s) directly to the BNC receptacle(s) on the trunk card (See .)

Step 2 Attach the network end of your CT3 cables to your external network.

Figure 11 CT3 Trunk Card BNC Cable Connections

Configuring Cable Length

When you configure your CT3 trunk cards, you must include the distance of the cable connected to the feature card. To specify this distance, you must use the cablelength command and designate the length of the DS3 cable, as shown in . Cable length is a value measured in feet between 0 and 450.

When you configure your system for CT3 lines, you must also include additional commands to define framing, line code, clock source, signaling, and so forth. For additional software information, refer to the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Software Installation and Configuration Guide that shipped with your system.

This completes the trunk card installation procedure. Proceed to the section "Verifying and Troubleshooting the Installation," page 25 to verify the installation.

Verifying and Troubleshooting the Installation

When you first power ON your Cisco AS5800 access server, all LEDs light while the system runs a series of self-test diagnostics. After the system passes initial diagnostics, all LEDs shut off. Later the LEDs light again as described in earlier in this document.

To complete the hardware installation, verify the trunk card LEDs operate properly by observing the following LED states:

The power LED is ON.

If the power LED remains OFF, verify that the card is seated properly.

If the power LED lights on other trunk cards in the dial shelf, try inserting the trunk card in a different slot. If none of the power LEDs lights, check your dial shelf power connections, power entry modules, and AC-input power supplies (if present).

The HCPU LED is ON.

If the HCPU LED is OFF, but the power LED is ON, the software image might have failed to load onto the card. The dial shelf controller will attempt to reload the software automatically. After a programmed number of attempts to reload the software image have failed, the dial shelf controller will power OFF the trunk card, and all LEDs will shut off.

If this happens, assume that the failure is due to defective hardware. Return the card to the factory for replacement. For additional information on returning a card to the factory, refer to the "Cisco Connection Online" section.

The FCPU LED is ON.

If the FCPU LED is OFF while the HCPU LED is ON, either the hardware is defective or the framer processor software has crashed. To determine if the failure is software related, wait while the dial shelf controller card automatically reloads the card. The auto-reload feature on the dial shelf controller card will attempt to reload the software image. If the software fails to reload after the programmed number of times, assume that the failure is due to defective hardware. Return the card to the factory for replacement. For additional information on returning a card to the factory, refer to the "Cisco Connection Online" section.

For further installation troubleshooting information, refer to the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Hardware Installation and Configuration Guide. If you have any questions, or need assistance, proceed to the section "Cisco Connection Online."


Tips

For installation and troubleshooting information, refer to the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Hardware Installation and Configuration Guide.


Configuring Your CT3 Trunk Card

The Cisco 5814 dial shelf only recognizes trunk cards in dial shelf slots 0 through 5; therefore, you must install trunk cards only in the first 6 slots.

If you are replacing a trunk card in the same slot as the one you just removed, the system automatically recognizes the previous system configuration, and no other configuration is needed.

If you are replacing a trunk card in a different slot from the one you just removed, additional configuration is needed.

Configuration Commands

lists commands to help you configure your CT3 card.


Note   The "/" symbol is used in commands to specify a physical location. Thus 1/0/0 on a T3 port tells you where you can plug something into the box. The ":" symbol is used in commands to specify a time multiplexed division within a physical port.
