Physical Installation
Ensure adequate clearance and spacing for thermal cooling. For detailed information,
refer to Chapter 4 in the Wide Bank 28 DS3 User Manual.
• FFO-Equipped Units. Only units equipped with the Fan Faceplate Option can be
mounted flush together without any free air space between units.
• Non-FFO Units, Horizontal Mounting. Ensure 1 RU (1.75 inches) minimum free
air space between units and 4 RU minimum space between each group of 4 units.
• Non-FFO Units, Vertical Mounting. Requires Carrier Access Vertical Mount
Crossbars, which provide proper spacing between units.

Electrical Connections and Cabling
For detailed information, refer to Chapter 5 in the Wide Bank 28 DS3 User Manual.
1. Power Connection. ALWAYS Connect BOTH –48VDC Connectors, and connect
the ground lugs to the building ground.
2. Connect High-Speed DS3 and Low-Speed DS1/E1 Cables. Attach ferrite RF
suppressors to low-speed cables.
3. Connect Ethernet, RS-232 Management, TL1 Alarming and Management,
and Alarm Outputs, if used. Attach ferrite RF suppressors to RS-232 cable.

Initial provisioning normally uses the local Craft RS-232 CLI management port. (The
RS-232 port must be used to set up the Ethernet and TL1 ports for remote
management.)
For detailed information, refer to Chapter 6 in the Wide Bank 28 DS3 User Manual.
CLI Tips and Tricks
The following tips and tricks can be helpful when using the Command Line
Interface:
If you initiate a craft RS-232 session and find that a Telnet session is already
active, you can cancel (kill) the conflicting session by pressing CTRL+k.
z You can back up (reverse) through the last three commands that were issued
by pressing CTRL+r, and move forward by pressing CTRL+f.
z When the screen scrolling stops with a more... message, pressing Enter
advances the scroll one line, and pressing the space bar advances the scroll one
page. For continuous scrolling (no stops), set the screen lines to zero by
entering the command screen 0.
z To stop a long scroll from completing, press Esc.

Starting CLI Session
1. Connect PC to Craft RS-232 Port on Wide Bank 28 DS3 connector panel.
2. Set PC terminal interface for: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity bit, one stop bit,
no flow control.
3. Press the Enter key to initialize connection and produce the Command Line
prompt.
4. Log into the Wide Bank, if required, by providing a user name and password.
NOTE: For convenience in new installations, the Wide Bank is shipped
with security turned off. For information about setting up security for the
Wide Bank, see Chapter 6 in the Wide Bank 28 DS3 User Manual.
If the Ethernet and TL1 ports have already been configured for remote
management, you can also use a CLI/Telnet session or TL1 session. See Chapter 5
in the Wide Bank 28 DS3 User Manual for detailed informations.
Verifying Status
1. Initiate self-test of all DS3, DS1, and cooling fan circuits with the following
command:
test all
2. Display current alarms with the following command:
alarms
3. Display current configuration settings with the following command:
