THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL
STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.
THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT
SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE
OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Submitting a Service Request
Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and
S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require
product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides
recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service
request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest
For S1 or S2 service requests, or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone.
(S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.)
Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business
operations running smoothly.
To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411

Preface
Obtaining Additional Publications and Information
Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity
definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is “down” or there is a critical impact to your business operations.
You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and
Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired while most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
Obtaining Additional Publications and Information
Information about Cisco products, technologies, and network solutions is available from various online
and printed sources.

Port Adapter Overview
The PA-MC-2T3+ is a single-width port adapter that provides two T3 interface connections using BNC
connectors. (See Figure 1-1.) Each T3 interface can be independently configured to be either
channelized or unchannelized. A channelized T3 provides 28 T1 lines multiplexed into the T3. Each T1
line can be configured into one or more serial interface data channels.
An unchannelized T3 provides a single serial interface data channel that may be configured to use all of
the T3 bandwidth or a fractional portion of it. This mode is compatible with several vendors of fractional
(subrate) DS3 data service units (DSUs).

•
The PA-MC-2T3+ supports both channelized and unchannelized operations.
•
It transmits and receives data bidirectionally at the T3 rate of 44.736 Mbps.
•
It conforms to relevant specifications for DS3 (Digital Signal Level 3) circuits.
•
The T3 connection, provided by two female BNC connectors for transmit (TX) and receive (RX),
requires 734A coaxial cable that has an impedance of 75 ohms.

Overview
Channelized T3 Overview
•
It supports RFC 1406 and RFC 1407 (CISCO-RFC-1407-CAPABILITY.my). For RFC 1406, Cisco
supports all tables except the FarEnd table. For RFC 1407, Cisco does not support FarEnd or
Fractional tables. (For information on accessing Cisco MIB files, refer to the Cisco MIB User Quick
Reference publication.)
•
PA-MC-2T3+ microcode is loaded at initialization and is bundled into IOS software.
Channelized T3 Overview
In the channelized mode of operation, a PA-MC-2T3+ T3 link is channelized into 28 DS1 data lines in
an industry standard multiplexing format.
Each of the T1 lines contains 24 timeslots of 64 or 56 kbps each. The T1 lines can support one or more
user data channels which appear to the system as serial interfaces. Each serial interface is assigned one
or more of the timeslots giving the serial interface a bandwidth of n x 56 kbps or n x 64 kbps, where n
is the number of timeslots assigned. Any unused timeslots of the T1 are filled with an idle channel
pattern.
The following restrictions apply: A timeslot can only be used by one serial interface. A serial interface
cannot use timeslots from more than one T1 line. Each T3 can have a maximum of 128 serial interfaces.
Unused serial interfaces on one T3 cannot be used by the other T3.
The PA-MC-2T3+ supports Cisco High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC), Frame Relay, PPP, and
Switched Multimegabit Data Service (SMDS) Data Exchange Interface (DXI) encapsulations over each
serial interface.
Note
T1 lines on the PA-MC-2T3+ are numbered 1–28, rather than the more traditional zero-based scheme
(0–27) used with other Cisco products. This is to ensure consistency with telco numbering schemes for
T1 lines within channelized T3 equipment.
Note
The PA-MC-2T3+ does not support the aggregation of multiple T1 lines (called inverse multiplexing or
bonding) in hardware for higher bandwidth data rates. MLPPP may be used for this purpose in software.
The T3 section of the PA-MC-2T3+ supports the maintenance data-link channel (MDL) when using c-bit
parity framing as well as local and network loopbacks. The T1 section of the PA-MC-2T3+ supports
facilities data link (FDL) in Extended Superframe (ESF) framing, as well as various loopbacks. Bit error
rate testing (BERT) is supported on each of the T1 lines although a test may not be active on more than
one T1 at a time. BER testing may be done over a framed or unframed T1 signal.
Unchannelized T3 Overview
In the unchannelized mode of operation, a T3 link provides a single high speed user data channel, rather
than being multiplexed into 28 T1 lines. The data channel appears to the system as a serial interface that
may be configured to use the full T3 bandwidth or a smaller portion of the T3 bandwidth. No industry
standard exists for subdividing the T3 bandwidth but the PA-MC-2T3+ is compatible with the
proprietary formats of five vendors of T3 DSUs, when used at the far end of the T3 link.

T3 Specifications
In unchannelized T3 mode, the T3 section supports the maintenance data link (MDL) channel when
using c-bit parity framing as well as local and network loopbacks. Bit error rate testing (BERT) is
supported on the T3 link. The PA-MC-2T3+ supports Cisco High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC),
Frame Relay, PPP, and Switched Multimegabit Data Service (SMDS) Data Exchange Interface (DXI)
encapsulations over the serial interface.
T3 Specifications
The PA-MC-2T3+ T3 port is designed to receive and transmit at the DSX-3 level while driving and
receiving from 75-ohm coaxial cables (ATT 734A or equivalent quality coax). The T3 port connects
directly to any equipment with DSX-3 level BNC connectors.
Table 1-1 lists the specifications that the T3 front end is designed to meet.

Identifying Interface Addresses
Identifying Interface Addresses
This section describes how to identify interface addresses for the PA-MC-2T3+ in supported platforms.
Interface addresses specify the actual physical location of each interface on a router or switch.
Interfaces on the PA-MC-2T3+ installed in a router maintain the same address regardless of whether
other port adapters are installed or removed. However, when you move a port adapter to a different slot,
the first number in the interface address changes to reflect the new port adapter slot number.
Interfaces on a PA-MC-2T3+ installed in a VIP maintain the same address regardless of whether other
interface processors are installed or removed. However, when you move a VIP to a different slot, the
interface processor slot number changes to reflect the new interface processor slot.
Note
Interface ports are numbered from left to right starting with 0.

1. Port adapter slot 0 is reserved for the Fast Ethernet port on the I/O controller (if present).
2. Port adapter slot 0 can accept the Port Adapter Jacket Card if an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 are installed.
3. Port adapter slot 0 is reserved for the Fast Ethernet port on the I/O controller (if present).
Cisco 7200 Series Routers Interface Addresses
This section describes how to identify the interface addresses used for the PA-MC-2T3+ in Cisco 7200
series routers. The interface address is composed of a two-part number in the format
port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number. See Table 1-4 for the interface address format.
In Cisco 7200 series routers, port adapter slots are numbered from the lower left to the upper right,
beginning with port adapter slot 1 and continuing through port adapter slot 2 for the Cisco 7202, slot 4
for the Cisco 7204 and Cisco 7204VXR, and slot 6 for the Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR. (Port
adapter slot 0 is reserved for the optional Fast Ethernet port on the I/O controller—if present.)
The interface addresses of the interfaces on the PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 1 are 1/0 through 1/1
(port adapter slot 1 and interfaces 0 and 1). If the PA-MC-2T3+ was in port adapter slot 4, these same
interfaces would be numbered 4/0 through 4/1 (port adapter slot 4 and interfaces 0 and 1).
Cisco 7301 Router Interface Addresses
This section describes how to identify addresses used for the PA-MC-2T3+ in the Cisco 7301 router. In
the Cisco 7301 router, slot 1 is the port adapter slot you use for the PA-MC-2T3+. (See Figure 1-5.)
The interface address is composed of a two-part number in the format
port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number. See Table 1-4 on page 1-11 for the interface address
format.
Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card Interface Addresses
This section describes how to identify the interface addresses used for the PA-MC-2T3+ in the Cisco
7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card in Cisco 7304 routers. The interface address is made of a two-part
number in the format port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number.
The Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card installs into Cisco 7304 router module slots 2 through 5
(See Figure 1-7.) The port-adapter-slot-number is the Cisco 7304 router module slot number. For
example, the interface address of port 0 on a PA-MC-2T3+, in which the Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter
Carrier Card is installed in Cisco 7304 router module slot 3, would be numbered 3/0.
Cisco 7401ASR Router Interface Addresses
This section describes how to identify addresses used for the PA-MC-2T3+ in the Cisco 7401ASR router.
In the Cisco 7401ASR router, slot 1 is the port adapter slot you use for the PA-MC-2T3+.
(See Figure 1-8.) The interface address is composed of a two-part number in the format
port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number. See Table 1-4 on page 1-11 for the interface address
format.

Cisco 7000 series and Cisco 7500 series routers.
Note
Although the processor slots in the 7-slot Cisco 7000 and Cisco 7507 and the 13-slot Cisco 7513 and
Cisco 7576 are vertically oriented and those in the 5-slot Cisco 7010 and Cisco 7505 are horizontally
oriented, all Cisco 7000 series and Cisco 7500 series routers use the same method for slot and port
numbering.
See Table 1-4 on page 1-11 for the interface address format. The interface address is composed of a
three-part number in the format
interface-processor-slot-number/port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number.
If the VIP is inserted in interface processor slot 3, then the interface addresses of the PA-MC-2T3+ are
3/1/0 through 3/1/1 (interface processor slot 3, port adapter slot 1, and interfaces 0 and 1). If the
port adapter was in port adapter slot 0 on the VIP, these same interface addresses would be numbered
3/0/0 through 3/0/1.
Note
If you remove the VIP with the PA-MC-2T3+ (shown in Figure 1-9 on page 1-9) from interface
processor slot 3 and install it in interface processor slot 2, the interface addresses become 2/1/0 through
2/1/1.

Checking Hardware and Software Compatibility
For configuration guidelines on port adapters in the Cisco 7200 series, refer to the Cisco 7200 Series
Port Adapter Hardware Configuration Guidelines.
Checking Hardware and Software Compatibility
To check the minimum software requirements of Cisco IOS software with the hardware installed on your
router, Cisco maintains the Software Advisor tool on Cisco.com. This tool does not verify whether
modules within a system are compatible, but it does provide the minimum IOS requirements for
individual hardware modules or components.
Note
Access to this tool is limited to users with Cisco.com login accounts.
To access Software Advisor, click Login at Cisco.com and go to Technical Support Help—Cisco TAC:
Tool Index: Software Advisor. You can also access the tool by pointing your browser directly to
http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/support/CompNav/Index.pl.
Choose a product family or enter a specific product number to search for the minimum supported
software release needed for your hardware.
75-Ohm In-Line Coaxial Attenuator
A 75-ohm in-line coaxial attenuator may be required to tune the signal between the PA-MC-2T3+ and
the far-end equipment, if the port adapter is experiencing line code violations (LCVs). LCVs occur when
the far end equipment transmit signal saturates the front end receiver of the PA-MC-2T3+.
Cisco offers an attenuator kit (ATTEN-KIT-PA=) that contains five attenuators with fixed values ranging
from 3-dB to 20-dB. For more information on the attenuator kit go to the following website:

Electrical Equipment Guidelines
Follow these basic guidelines when working with any electrical equipment:
•
Before beginning any procedures requiring access to the chassis interior, locate the emergency
power-off switch for the room in which you are working.
•
Disconnect all power and external cables before moving a chassis; do not work alone when
potentially hazardous conditions exist.

FCC Class A Compliance
•
Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit; always check.
•
Do not 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.
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when electronic cards or components are
improperly handled, results in complete or intermittent failures. Port adapters and processor modules
comprise printed circuit boards that are fixed in metal carriers. Electromagnetic interference (EMI)
shielding and connectors are integral components of the carrier. Although the metal carrier helps to
protect the board from ESD, use a preventive antistatic strap during handling.
Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:
Caution
•
Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.
•
Connect the equipment end of the strap to an unfinished chassis surface.
•
When installing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to
properly seat the bus connectors in the backplane or midplane. These devices prevent accidental
removal, provide proper grounding for the system, and help to ensure that bus connectors are
properly seated.
•
When removing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to
release the bus connectors from the backplane or midplane.
•
Handle carriers by available handles or edges only; avoid touching the printed circuit boards or
connectors.
•
Place a removed board component-side-up on an antistatic surface or in a static shielding container.
If you plan to return the component to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding
container.
•
Avoid contact between the printed circuit boards and clothing. The wrist strap only protects
components from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.
•
Never attempt to remove the printed circuit board from the metal carrier.
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be
between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohm).
FCC Class A Compliance
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates,
uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this
equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be
required to correct the interference at their own expense.

Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
FCC Class A Compliance
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference
stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment
causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more
of the following measures:
Note
•
Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
•
Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
•
Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
•
Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is,
make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit
breakers or fuses.)
The Cisco PA-MC-2T3+ port adapter has been designed to meet these requirements. Modifications to
this product that are not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc., could void the various approvals and negate
your authority to operate the product.

Removing and Installing Port Adapters
This chapter describes how to remove the Cisco PA-MC-2T3+ port adapter from supported platforms
and also how to install a new or replacement port adapter. This chapter contains the following sections:
•
Handling Port Adapters, page 3-1
•
Online Insertion and Removal, page 3-2
•
Warnings and Cautions, page 3-3
•
Port Adapter Removal and Installation, page 3-4
•
Cables and Connectors, page 3-13
Each port adapter circuit board is mounted to a metal carrier and is sensitive to electrostatic discharge
(ESD) damage.
Note
Caution
When a port adapter slot is not in use, a blank port adapter must fill the empty slot to allow the router or
switch to conform to electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions requirements and to allow proper
airflow across the port adapters. If you plan to install a new port adapter in a slot that is not in use, you
must first remove the blank port adapter.
When powering off the router, wait a minimum of 30 seconds before powering it on again.
Handling Port Adapters
Caution
Always handle the port adapter by the carrier edges and handle; never touch the port adapter components
or connector pins. (See Figure 3-1 on page 3-2.)

Online Insertion and Removal
Several platforms support online insertion and removal (OIR) of port adapters; therefore, you do not
have to power down routers when removing and replacing a PA-MC-2T3+ on Cisco 7100 series routers,
Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco uBR7200 series routers, Cisco 7301 routers, or Cisco 7401ASR routers.
Although the VIP and the Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card support online insertion and
removal, individual port adapters do not. To replace port adapters, you must first remove the VIP or the
Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card from the chassis and then install or replace port adapters as
required. If a blank port adapter is installed on the VIP or the Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card
on which you want to install a new port adapter, you must first remove the VIP or the Cisco 7304 PCI
Port Adapter Carrier Card from the chassis and then remove the blank port adapter.
Caution
To prevent system problems, do not remove port adapters from the VIP or the Cisco 7304 PCI Port
Adapter Carrier Card motherboard or attempt to install other port adapters on the motherboard when the
system is operating. To install or replace port adapters, first remove the VIP or the Cisco 7304 PCI Port
Adapter Carrier Card from its interface processor slot.
It is wise to gracefully shut down the system before removing a port adapter that has active traffic moving
through it. Removing a module while traffic is flowing through the ports can cause system disruption.
Once the module is inserted, the ports can be brought back up.
Note
Online insertion and removal (OIR) is not supported on the Port Adapter Jacket Card. OIR is supported
on the port adapter. You must have the chassis powered off to install or remove the Port Adapter Jacket
Card.
Note
As you disengage the module from the router or switch, online insertion and removal (OIR)
administratively shuts down all active interfaces in the module.
OIR allows you to install and replace modules while the router is operating; you do not need to notify
the software or shut down the system power, although you should not run traffic through the module you
are removing while it is being removed. OIR is a method that is seamless to end users on the network,
maintains all routing information, and preserves sessions.

OL-3526-05
Chapter 3
Removing and Installing Port Adapters
Warnings and Cautions
The following is a functional description of OIR for background information only; for specific
procedures for installing and replacing a module in a supported platform, refer to the “Port Adapter
Removal and Installation” section on page 3-4.
Each module has a bus connector that connects it to the router. The connector has a set of tiered pins in
three lengths that send specific signals to the system as they make contact with the module. The system
assesses the signals it receives and the order in which it receives them to determine if a module is being
removed from or introduced to the system. From these signals, the system determines whether to
reinitialize a new interface or to shut down a disconnected interface.
Specifically, when you insert a module, the longest pins make contact with the module first, and the
shortest pins make contact last. The system recognizes the signals and the sequence in which it receives
them.
When you remove or insert a module, the pins send signals to notify the system of changes. The router
then performs the following procedure:
Note
1.
Rapidly scans the system for configuration changes.
2.
Initializes newly inserted port adapters or administratively shuts down any vacant interfaces.
3.
Brings all previously configured interfaces on the module back to their previously installed state.
Any newly inserted interface is put in the administratively shutdown state, as if it was present (but
not configured) at boot time. If a similar module type is reinserted into a slot, its ports are configured
and brought online up to the port count of the originally installed module of that type.
Before you begin installation, read Chapter 2, “Preparing for Installation,” for a list of parts and tools
required for installation.
Warnings and Cautions
Observe the following warnings and cautions when installing or removing port adapters.
Note
If a port adapter lever or other retaining mechanism does not move to the locked position, the port
adapter is not completely seated in the midplane. Carefully pull the port adapter halfway out of the slot,
reinsert it, and move the port adapter lever or other mechanism to the locked position.
Caution
To prevent jamming the carrier between the upper and the lower edges of the port adapter slot, and to
ensure that the edge connector at the rear of the port adapter mates with the connection at the rear of the
port adapter slot, make certain that the carrier is positioned correctly, as shown in the cutaway in the
following illustrations.
Caution
When performing the following procedures, wear a grounding wrist strap to avoid ESD damage to the
card. Some platforms have an ESD connector for attaching the wrist strap.
Warning
Hazardous voltage or energy is present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution
when servicing.

Cisco 7200 VXR Routers Port Adapter Jacket Card
The Port Adapter Jacket Card is used in the I/O controller slot of a Cisco 7200 VXR router with either
an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 installed, and allows a port adapter to be installed in it. Both the NPE-G1 and
NPE-G2 incorporate I/O controller functionality, so that with either network processing engine the I/O
controller slot is available. The NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 have a third dedicated peripheral component
interconnect (PCI) bus that provides additional bandwidth to the chassis. The third PCI bus allows a port
adapter with a high bandwidth point requirement to be used with the Port Adapter Jacket Card in the I/O
controller slot.
Note
Online insertion and removal (OIR) is not supported on the Port Adapter Jacket Card. OIR is supported
on the port adapter. You must have the chassis powered off to install or remove the Port Adapter Jacket
Card.

Cables and Connectors
Cables and Connectors
The interface connectors on the PA-MC-2T3+ are coaxial BNC types, with one connector for transmit
(TX) and one for receive (RX). The BNC connectors are transformer-coupled to the PA-MC-2T3+ line
interface unit (LIU), which is the analog physical interface on the PA-MC-2T3+.
The pinout and signal descriptions for the BNC connectors on the PA-MC-2T3+ are as follows:
Caution
•
Transmit (TX)—Transmitted signals appear on the center contact, and the outer shield is grounded
for the 75-ohm 734A coaxial cable you attach to the TX BNC connector.
•
Receive (RX)—Received signals appear on the center contact, and the outer shield is grounded for
the 75-ohm 734A coaxial cable you attach to the RX BNC connector.
To prevent problems when long cable lengths are required, you must ensure that your 75-ohm coaxial
cables meet or exceed 734A specifications. See Table 1-1 in the “T3 Specifications” section on page 1-3
for supported cable lengths.
Figure 3-6 shows the typical 75-ohm 734A coaxial cable pair recommended for use with the
PA-MC-2T3+. Use one 75-ohm coaxial cable for each PA-MC-2T3+ connection: RX and TX.
Note
Cisco Systems does not supply cables with the PA-MC-2T3+. You must supply your own cables.

adapter installation, you must install the port adapter cables. The instructions that follow apply to all
supported platforms.
Connect the 75-ohm coaxial cables to the PA-MC-2T3+ port adapter as follows:
Step 1
Attach the 75-ohm coaxial cables directly to the BNC ports on the PA-MC-2T3+ port adapter. Attach
one end of a cable to the port labeled TX and one end of a second cable to the port labeled RX. (See
Figure 3-7 on page 3-14.)

Configuring Unchannelized mode for the
Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
To continue your Cisco PA-MC-2T3+ port adapter installation, you must configure the PA-MC-2T3+
interface. The instructions that follow apply to all supported platforms. Minor differences between the
platforms—with Cisco IOS software commands—are noted.
This chapter contains the following sections:
•
Using the EXEC Command Interpreter, page 4-1
•
Replacing an Existing Port Adapter, page 4-2
•
Configuring an Unchannelized T3 Link, page 4-3
•
Configuring the T3 Controller, page 4-4
•
Performing a Basic Serial Interface Configuration, page 4-17
•
Checking the Configuration, page 4-18
Using the EXEC Command Interpreter
You modify the configuration of your router through the software command interpreter called the EXEC
(also called enable mode). You must enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter with
the enable command before you can use the configure command to configure a new interface or change
the existing configuration of an interface. The system prompts you for a password if one has been set.
The system prompt for the privileged level ends with a pound sign (#) instead of an angle bracket (>).
At the console terminal, use the following procedure to enter the privileged level:
Step 1
At the user-level EXEC prompt, enter the enable command. The EXEC prompts you for a
privileged-level password as follows:
Router> enable
Password:
Step 2
Enter the password (the password is case sensitive). For security purposes, the password is not displayed.
When you enter the correct password, the system displays the privileged-level system prompt (#):

Chapter 4
Configuring Unchannelized mode for the Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
Using the EXEC Command Interpreter
Replacing an Existing Port Adapter
Before you remove or replace a port adapter, use the shutdown command to disable the port adapter to
prevent anomalies when you remove and reinstall the port adapter. When you shut down an interface, it
is designated administratively down in the show command displays.
Follow these steps to shut down an interface:
Step 1
Enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (also called enable mode). (See the “Using
the EXEC Command Interpreter” section on page 4-1 for instructions.)
Step 2
At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal is the
source of the configuration subcommands, as follows:
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#
Shutting Down the T3 Controller
Step 3
Shut down the T3 controller on the PA-MC-2T3+ with the controller command:
shutdown
This command sends a DS3 idle signal toward the network. You can bring the T3 controller back up with
the no shutdown controller command.
Examples follow:
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1 of the Cisco
7500 series router:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/1
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
Router(config)# controller T3 1/1
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
Note
Step 4
Both T3 ports of the PA-MC-2T3+ should be shut down before removing the port adapter.
Verify that the two T3 ports are now shut down using the
show controller T3 command shown in the following examples:
The following example is for a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 6 of a Cisco 7200 series router.
Router(config-controller)# end
Router# show controller T3 6/0
T3 6/0 is administratively down.
Router# show controller T3 6/1
T3 6/1 is administratively down.

The following example is for a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 1 of a VIP in a Cisco 7500 series router.
Router(config-controller)# end
Router# show controller T3 1/1/0
T3 1/1/0 is administratively down.
Router# show controller T3 1/1/1
T3 1/1/1 is administratively down.
Step 5
Save the shutdown configuration to nonvolatile memory.
Router# copy running-config startup-config
Step 6
Replace the port adapter in the slot. See the “Port Adapter Removal and Installation” section on page 3-4
for more information.
Step 7
Re enable the port adapter by doing the following:
a.
Repeat Step 3 to renewable an interface but substitute the no shutdown command for the shutdown
command.
b.
Repeat Step 4 to verify that the interfaces are in the correct state and no longer shut down. Use the
show controller T3 command.
c.
Repeat Step 5 to write the new configuration to memory.
Use the copy running-config startup-config command.
For complete descriptions of software configuration commands, refer to the publications listed in the
“Related Documentation” section on page viii.
Configuring an Unchannelized T3 Link
If you installed a new PA-MC-2T3+ or if you want to change the configuration of an existing
PA-MC-2T3+ link, you must enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter and then use
the configure command. If you replace a PA-MC-2T3+ that was previously configured, the system
recognizes the new PA-MC-2T3+ link and brings it up in its existing configuration.
After you verify that the new PA-MC-2T3+ is installed correctly (the enabled LED goes on), use the
privileged-level configure command to configure the new interface. Be prepared with the information
you need, such as the following:
•
Protocols you plan to route on each new interface
•
IP addresses, if you plan to configure the interfaces for IP routing
The configure command requires privileged-level access to the EXEC command interpreter, which
usually requires a password. Contact your system administrator if necessary to obtain EXEC-level
access.

Selecting a T3 Controller
You must enter the following controller command, before any other configuration commands, to select
the T3 controller you want to configure:
controller T3 interface-processor-slot/port-adapter-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7500 series router
controller T3 chassis-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7200 series router
controller T3 chassis-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7301 series router
controller T3 chassis-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7401ASR router
Examples of selecting the T3 controller follow:
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0

Configuring an Unchannelized T3 Link
Setting Unchannelized Mode for the T3 Controller
To configure the T3 for unchannelized mode, use the no channelized command. After the full-rate T3
interface is configured, use the dsu bandwidth command to create a subrate T3 interface. The
following example configures a subrate T3 interface on a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 1 of a Cisco
7200 series router.
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller t3 1/0
Router (config)# no channelized
Router (config-controller)# exit
Router (config)# interface serial 1/0
Router (config-if)# dsu bandwidth 16000
Router (config-if)# encapsulation frame-relay
Router (config-if)# ip address 10.10.10.10 255.255.255.255
Router (config-if)# no shutdown
The following example is for a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 1 of a VIP in a Cisco 7500 series router.
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller T3 1/1/0
Router (config)# no channelized
Change to subrate mode will cause cbus complex reset. Proceed? [yes/no]: Y
Router(config)# interface serial 1/1/0
Router(config-if)# encapsulation ppp
Router(config-if)# ip address 10.10.10.10.10 255.255.255.255
Router(config)# no shutdown
When the PA-MC-2T3+ is configured for unchannelized T3 mode, its default MTU size is set to 4470
for compatibility with other T3 equipment and port adapters.
Caution
The change in MTU sizes will cause a memory recarve and cbus complex to occur, disrupting all traffic
on the router for several minutes. (This occurs only on Cisco 7500 series routers.)
The following message will be displayed when switching from channelized to unchannelized mode on
Cisco 7500 series routers:
Change to subrate mode will cause cbus complex reset. Proceed? [yes/no]: Y
Type Y for ‘yes’ at the end of the warning. At the prompt, type ^Z to exit. This will allow you to exit
configuration mode and enter unchannelized mode.
Setting the T3 port to unchannelized mode creates a serial interface which the following commands may
be used to configure. Use the interface serial command to select the serial interface.
router# configure terminal
router# interface serial 1/0/1

Setting the Framing Type for the Serial Interface
In interface configuration mode, specify T3 framing by entering the {c-bit | m13} configuration
subcommand, as in the following example:
router(config-if)# framing {c-bit | m13}
where:
•
c-bit—C-bit parity DS3 framing
•
m13—M13 Multiplex DS3 framing
Use the no form of this command to return to the default, C-bit framing.
Specifying the Cable Length for the Serial Interface
At the prompt, specify the cable length using the interface command:
cablelength feet
where:
•
feet is a numeral from 0 to 450.
•
The default value is 10 feet.
An example follows:
Router(config-if)# cablelength 40
Note
For the cablelength feet command, user-specified T3 cable lengths are structured into ranges as follows:
0–49 and 50–450 to represent short and long cables.
If the numerical value entered by the user falls within the lower range, then the PA-MC-2T3+ T3 port is
set for short cable output levels. If the value falls into higher range, the long cable output levels will be
used.
In the preceding example, a cable length of 40 is specified, which means that the 0–49 range is used. If
you change the cable length to 45, then the 0–49 range still applies. Further, if you specify a cable length
of 100 or 200, the 50–450 range applies in both cases. Only moving from one range (0–49) to the other
range (50–450) has an effect. The actual cable-length number you enter is stored in the configuration
file. It is recommended that the actual cable length be entered to ensure future compatibility.
Setting the Clock Source for the Serial Interface
At the prompt, set the internal or line clock source for the selected T3 controller with the interface
command:
clock source {line | internal}
Where:
line—selects a network clock source
internal—selects an internal clock source
The default is clock source internal.

Configuring MDL Messages for the Serial Interface
You can configure Maintenance Data Link (MDL) messages (which are defined in the ANSI
T1.107a-1990 specification) on the PA-MC-2T3+.
Note
MDL messages are only supported when the T3 framing is set for c-bit parity. (See the “Setting the
Framing Type for the Serial Interface” section on page 4-6.)
To configure MDL messages, use the interface commands:
mdl {transmit {path | idle-signal | test-signal} | string {eic | lic | fic | unit | pfi | port | generator}
string}
no mdl {transmit {path | idle-signal | test-signal} | string {eic | lic | fic | unit | pfi | port |
generator} string}
where:
•
eic is the equipment identification code (up to 10 characters).
•
lic is the location identification code (up to 11 characters).
•
fic is the frame identification code (up to 10 characters).
•
unit is the unit identification code (up to 6 characters).
•
pfi is the facility identification code to send in the MDL path message (up to 38 characters).
•
port is the equipment port, which initiates the idle signal, to send in the MDL idle signal message
(up to 38 characters).
•
generator is the generator number to send in the MDL test signal message (up to 38 characters).
Use the no form of this command to remove MDL messages. The default is that no MDL message is
configured.

Setting the DSU Mode for the Serial Interface
In interface configuration mode, define the DSU interoperability mode by entering the
dsu mode [0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4] configuration subcommand, as in the following example:
router(config-if)# dsu mode 1
Use the no form of this command to return to the default, 0.
The local DSU mode must match the remote DSU or T3 port configuration. For example, if an ADC
Kentrox DSU is at the remote end of the T3 link, then the local T3 port must be configured for mode 1.
You need to know what type of DSU is at the remote T3 end to find out if it interoperates with the
PA-MC-2T3+. Specify mode 0 for connection from a PA-MC-2T3+ to another PA-MC-2T3+ or a Digital
Link DSU (DL3100). Specify mode 1 for connection from a PA-MC-2T3+ to a Kentrox DSU. Specify
mode 2 for connection from a PA-MC-2T3+ to a Larscom DSU. See Table 4-1 for a list of DSUs and
their corresponding bandwidth range.
Also see the “T3 Specifications” section on page 1-3 for information regarding DSU feature
compatibilities.

Caution
Always connect to and configure HSSI port B on the Verilink HDM2182. Port A is not supported by the
PA-MC-2T3+.
Caution
The PA-MC-2T3+ does not support the Kentrox DSU bandwidth setting of 1.0 mbps. The Kentrox DSU
speed must be set to 1.5 mbps or greater.
Caution
For all DSU modes, the DSU must be configured for the same transmit and receive speeds. Asymmetrical
transmit and receive speeds are not supported.

Setting the Bandwidth for the Serial Interface
In interface configuration mode, set the bandwidth to be used by the serial interface on the T3 link by
entering the dsu bandwidth bandwidth configuration subcommand, as in the following example:
Router(config-if)# dsu bandwidth 16000
The allowable bandwidth range is 1 to 44210 kbps. Use the no form of this command to return to the
default, 44210.
The local DSU bandwidth value must match the remote DSU or T3 port bandwidth exactly. For example,
if you set the DSU bandwidth to 16000 on the local port, you must do the same on the remote DSU or
T3 port.
Setting Scrambling for the Serial Interface
In interface configuration mode, enable serial interface scrambling by entering the scramble
configuration subcommand, as in the following example:
router(config-if)# scramble
Use the no form of this command to restore the default value, disabled.
The local port configuration must match the remote DSU or T3 port configuration. For example, if you
enable scrambling on the local port, you must do the same on the remote DSU or T3 port.
Configuring Loopback Mode for the Serial Interface
With loopbacks, you can detect and isolate equipment malfunctions by testing the connection between
the PA-MC-2T3+ interface and a remote device such as a CSU/DSU. Remote loopback sends a command
to loop the T3 line at the far end. It can be used to diagnose problems with cables from the port adapter
to the switching office. Network loopback loops the PA-MC-2T3+ T3 port back to the network, allowing
the remote end to test the connection to the PA-MC-2T3+.
Local loopback loops the PA-MC-2T3+ T3 port back to itself allowing it to be tested in isolation from
the T3 cables and remote T3 equipment.
The loopback subcommand places an interface in loopback mode, which enables test packets that are
generated from the ping command to loop through a remote device and cables. If the packets complete
the loop, the connection is good.
Table 4-2 provides examples of the loopback {local | network {line | payload} | remote {line | payload}2
command. You can configure the serial interface for loopback modes using the interface command:
loopback [local | network | remote]
The default is no loopback.
To return the serial interface to its default unlooped condition, use the no form of the command.

1. Remote loopback mode works with C-bit framing only. The other loopback modes listed above work with C-bit and M13 framing. Refer to the “Setting
the Framing Type for the Serial Interface” section on page 4-6 for information on configuring C-bit framing.
2. These loopback commands are only available when the DSU mode is set to 1, Kentrox mode.
Configuring the T3 controller to Enable Loopbacks
The PA-MC-2T3+ can be configured to respond to or to ignore remote T3 loopback requests sent to it
from the far end T3 equipment. Equipment customer loopback enables the port adapter to respond to
remote T3 loopback commands from the remote T3 equipment while equipment network loopback
causes the PA to ignore remote T3 loopback commands.
equipment [customer | network] loopback
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# equipment customer loopback
Note
Remote loopbacks are only available when you use c-bit parity framing.

Shutting Down the T3 Controller
You can shut down the T3 controller on the PA-MC-2T3+ with the controller command:
shutdown
This command sends a DS3 idle signal toward the network. You can bring the T3 controller back up with
the no shutdown controller command.
Examples follow:
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0

Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
Configuring a BER Test on the T3 Controller
Bit error rate test (BERT) circuitry is built into the PA-MC-2T3+. With BER tests, you can test cable and
signal problems in the field.
There are two categories of test patterns that can be generated by the onboard BER test circuitry:
pseudorandom and repetitive. The former test patterns are polynomial based numbers and conform to
the CCITT/ITU O.151 and O.153 specifications; the latter test patterns are zeros or ones, or alternating
zeros and ones.
A list of the available test patterns follows:
•
Pseudorandom test patterns:
– 2^15 (per CCITT/ITU O.151)
– 2^20 (per CCITT/ITU O.151 non-QRSS)
– 2^23 (per CCITT/ITU O.151)
•
Repetitive test patterns:
– All zeros (0s)
– All ones (1s)
– Alternating zeros (0s) and ones (1s)
Both the total number of error bits received and the total number of bits received are available for
analysis. You can set the testing period from 1 minute to 14,400 minutes (240 hours), and you can also
retrieve the error statistics anytime during the BER test.
When running a BER test, your system expects to receive the same pattern that it is transmitting. To
accomplish this, two common options are available:
•
Use a loopback somewhere in the link or network.
•
Configure remote testing equipment to transmit the same BER test pattern at the same time.

The following explains the output of the preceding command, line by line:
Output Display Line
Explanation
BERT test result (running)
This line indicates the current state of the test. In this case,
“running” indicates that the BER test is still in process. After
a test is completed, “done” is displayed.
Test Pattern : 2^15, Status : Sync, Sync Detected : 1
This line indicates the test pattern you selected for the test
(2^15), the current synchronization state (sync), and the
number of times synchronization has been detected during
this test (1).
Interval : 5 minute(s), Time Remain : 5 minute(s)
This line indicates the time the test takes to run and the time
remaining for the test to run.
Interval : 5 minute(s), Time Remain : 2 minute(s)
(unable to complete)
For a BER test that you terminate, this line indicates the time
the test would have taken to run and the time remaining for
the test to run had you not terminated it; “unable to complete”
signifies that you interrupted the test.
Bit Errors(Since BERT Started): 6 bits,
These four lines show the bit errors that have been detected
versus the total number of test bits that have been received
since the test started and since the last synchronization was
detected. Bits and errors are only counted when the test status
is “sync”.
Bits Received(Since BERT start): 8113 Kbits
Bit Errors(Since last sync): 6 bits
Bits Received(Since last sync): 8113 Kbits
Terminating a BER Test
You can terminate a BER test with the controller command:
no bert
Examples follow:
Terminate the BER test running on T3 0.
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# no bert
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# no bert
To check your configurations using show commands, proceed to the “Checking the Configuration”
section on page 4-18; otherwise, proceed to the following section to perform a basic interface
configuration.

OL-3526-05
Chapter 4
Configuring Unchannelized mode for the Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
Configuring an Unchannelized T3 Link
Performing a Basic Serial Interface Configuration
Following are instructions for a basic configuration: enabling an interface and specifying IP routing. You
might also need to enter other configuration subcommands, depending on the requirements for your
system configuration and the protocols you plan to route on the interface. For complete descriptions of
configuration subcommands and the configuration options available for serial interfaces, refer to the
appropriate software documentation.
In the following procedure, press the Return key after each step unless otherwise noted. At any time you
can exit the privileged level and return to the user level by entering disable at the prompt as follows:
Router# disable
Router>
Step 1
Enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal is the source of the configuration
subcommands, as follows:
Router# configuration terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#
Step 2
Specify the first interface to configure by entering the interface serial subcommand, followed by the
interface address of the interface you plan to configure. See “Port Adapter Slot Locations on the
Supported Platforms” section on page 1-5 and “Identifying Interface Addresses” section on page 1-11.
This example is for the serial interface of T3 port 0 in port adapter slot 6.
Router(config)# interface serial 6/0
Router(config-if)#
This example is for the serial interface of T3 port 0 of a port adapter in port adapter slot 1 of a VIP in
interface processor slot 2.
Router(config)# interface serial 2/1/0
Router(config-if)#
Step 3
Assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface (if IP routing is enabled on the system) by using
the ip address subcommand, as in the following example:
Router(config-if)# ip address 10.0.0.0 10.255.255.255
Step 4
Add any additional configuration subcommands required to enable routing protocols and set the
interface characteristics.
Step 5
Re enable the interfaces using the no shutdown command. (See the “Replacing an Existing Port
Adapter” section on page 4-2.)
Step 6
Configure all additional port adapter interfaces as required.
Step 7
After including all of the configuration subcommands to complete your configuration, press
Ctrl-Z—hold down the Control key while you press Z—or enter end or exit to exit configuration mode
and return to the EXEC command interpreter prompt.
Step 8
Write the new configuration to NVRAM as follows:
Router# copy running-config startup-config
[OK]

Checking the Configuration
This completes the procedure for creating a basic configuration.
Checking the Configuration
After configuring the new interface, use the show commands to display the status of the new interface
or all interfaces, and use the ping and loopback commands to check connectivity. This section includes
the following subsections:
•
Using show Commands to Verify the New Interface Status, page 4-18
•
Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connectivity, page 4-30
•
Using loopback Commands to Troubleshoot Network Problems, page 4-30
Using show Commands to Verify the New Interface Status
Table 4-3 demonstrates how you can use the show commands to verify that new interfaces are configured
and operating correctly and that the PA-MC-2T3+ appears in them correctly. Sample displays of the
output of selected show commands appear in the sections that follow. For complete command
descriptions and examples, refer to the publications listed in the “Related Documentation” section on

Using the show controllers Command
You can display information for the T3 controller within a PA-MC-2T3+ in Cisco 7200 series,
Cisco 7301 routers, and Cisco 7401ASR routers with the command:
show controllers t3 port-adapter/t3-port [brief | tabular]
where:
•
brief displays a list of configurations only.
•
tabular displays a list of configurations and MIB data in a tabular format.
Note
If you use the show controllers t3 port-adapter/port command without either of the optional arguments
(brief or tabular), all information is displayed for the T3 controller you specified; therefore, the
resulting display output can be extensive.
Note
You can use these show controllers t3 commands for Cisco 7500 series routers in which the
PA-MC-2T3+ is supported. The syntax is as follows:
— show controllers t3 slot/port-adapter/t3-port brief
— show controllers t3 slot/port-adapter/t3-port tabular

(additional displayed text not shown)
If you use the show controllers T3 command without specifying a port address (slot/port-adapter/port),
all information is displayed for all T3 port adapters in the router; therefore, the resulting display output
can be extensive.
Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connectivity
Using the ping command, you can verify that an interface port is functioning properly. This section
provides a brief description of this command. Refer to the publications listed in the “Related
Documentation” section on page viii for detailed command descriptions and examples.
The ping command sends echo request packets out to a remote device at an IP address that you specify.
After sending an echo request, the system waits a specified time for the remote device to reply. Each
echo reply is displayed as an exclamation point (!) on the console terminal; each request that is not
returned before the specified timeout is displayed as a period (.). A series of exclamation points (!!!!!)
indicates a good connection; a series of periods (.....) or the messages [timed out] or [failed] indicate a
bad connection.
Following is an example of a successful ping command to a remote server with the address 10.0.0.10:
Router# ping 10.0.0.10 <Return>
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to 10.0.0.10, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/15/64 ms
Router#
If the connection fails, verify that you have the correct IP address for the destination and that the device
is active (powered on), and repeat the ping command.
Proceed to the next section, “Using loopback Commands to Troubleshoot Network Problems,” to finish
checking network connectivity.
Using loopback Commands to Troubleshoot Network Problems
If you have difficulty with the PA-MC-2T3+ configuration or installation, you can troubleshoot the port
adapter using the loopback command. Refer to the “Configuring Loopback Mode for the Serial
Interface” section on page 4-10 for instructions on setting loopbacks.
PA-MC-2T3+ Multi-Channel T3 Port Adapter Installation and Configuration
4-30
OL-3526-05
Chapter 4
Configuring Unchannelized mode for the Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
Checking the Configuration
If the ping command to the remote IP address failed, then use loopbacks to troubleshoot the T3
connection using the following steps:
Step 1
Use the show controller T3 and show interface serial commands to confirm that the T3 controller,
serial interface, and line protocol are up.
Step 2
Place the serial interface of the PA-MC-2T3+ in local loopback using the loop local command.
Step 3
Repeat the ping command using the IP address of the local serial interface. Using the previous example
where the remote server’s IP address was 10.0.0.10, if the local IP address is 10.0.0.5, then use the
command:
ping 10.0.0.5
If the ping is successful, proceed to Step 4. A failure indicates a configuration problem or a hardware
problem with the PA-MC-2T3+.
Step 4
Remove the local loop with the no loopback command and place the remote server or DSU in network
loopback with the loopback remote command.
Note
The loopback remote command is only available when the framing is set to c-bit parity. If the framing
is not set to c-bit parity, the remote server will have to be placed into network loopback by someone at
the remote site.
Step 5
Repeat Step 3. If the ping is successful then the PA-MC-2T3+ and the T3 link to the remote site is
functioning correctly. The problem is probably in the remote DSU or server configuration or hardware.
If the ping fails then either the T3 link to the remote site or the remote server or DSU configuration or
hardware has a problem.

Configuring Channelized mode for the
Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
To continue your Cisco PA-MC-2T3+ port adapter installation, you must configure the PA-MC-2T3+
interface. The instructions that follow apply to all supported platforms. Minor differences between the
platforms—with Cisco IOS software commands—are noted.
This chapter contains the following sections:
•
Using the EXEC Command Interpreter, page 5-1
•
Replacing an Existing Port Adapter, page 5-2
•
Configuring a Channelized T3 Link, page 5-3
•
Performing a Basic Serial Interface Configuration, page 5-24
•
Checking the Configuration, page 5-26
Using the EXEC Command Interpreter
You modify the configuration of your router through the software command interpreter called the EXEC
(also called enable mode). You must enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter with
the enable command before you can use the configure command to configure a new interface or change
the existing configuration of an interface. The system prompts you for a password if one has been set.
The system prompt for the privileged level ends with a pound sign (#) instead of an angle bracket (>).
At the console terminal, use the following procedure to enter the privileged level:
Step 1
At the user-level EXEC prompt, enter the enable command. The EXEC prompts you for a
privileged-level password as follows:
Router> enable
Password:
Step 2
Enter the password (the password is case sensitive). For security purposes, the password is not displayed.
When you enter the correct password, the system displays the privileged-level system prompt (#):

Using the EXEC Command Interpreter
Replacing an Existing Port Adapter
Before you remove or replace a port adapter, use the shutdown command to disable the port adapter to
prevent anomalies when you remove and reinstall the port adapter. When you shut down an interface, it
is designated administratively down in the show command displays.
Follow these steps to shut down an interface:
Step 1
Enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (also called enable mode). (See the “Using
the EXEC Command Interpreter” section on page 5-1 for instructions.)
Step 2
At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal is the
source of the configuration subcommands, as follows:
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#
Shutting Down the T3 Controller
Step 3
Shut down the T3 controller on the PA-MC-2T3+ with the controller command:
shutdown
This command sends a DS3 idle signal toward the network. You can bring the T3 controller back up with
the no shutdown controller command.
Examples follow:
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1 of the Cisco
7500 series router:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/1
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
Router(config)# controller T3 1/1
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
Note
Step 4
Both T3 ports of the PA-MC-2T3+ should be shut down before removing the port adapter.
Verify that the two T3 ports are now shut down using the
show controller T3 command shown in the following examples:
The following example is for a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 6 of a Cisco 7200 series router.
Router(config-controller)# end
Router# show controller T3 6/0
T3 6/0 is administratively down.
Router# show controller T3 6/1
T3 6/1 is administratively down.

Router# show controller T3 1/1/0
T3 1/1/0 is administratively down.
Router# show controller T3 1/1/1
T3 1/1/1 is administratively down.
Step 5
Save the shutdown configuration to nonvolatile memory.
Router# copy running-config startup-config
Step 6
Replace the port adapter in the slot. See the “Port Adapter Removal and Installation” section on page 3-4
for more information.
Step 7
Reenable the port adapter by doing the following:
a.
Repeat Step 3 to reenable an interface but substitute the no shutdown command for the shutdown
command.
b.
Repeat Step 4 to verify that the interfaces are in the correct state and no longer shut down. Use the
show controller T3 command.
c.
Repeat Step 5 to write the new configuration to memory.
Use the copy running-config startup-config command.
For complete descriptions of software configuration commands, refer to the publications listed in the
“Related Documentation” section on page viii.
Configuring a Channelized T3 Link
If you installed a new PA-MC-2T3+ or if you want to change the configuration of an existing
PA-MC-2T3+ link, you must enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter and then use
the configure command. If you replace a PA-MC-2T3+ that was previously configured, the system
recognizes the new PA-MC-2T3+ link and brings it up in its existing configuration.
After you verify that the new PA-MC-2T3+ is installed correctly (the enabled LED goes on), use the
privileged-level configure command to configure the new interface. Be prepared with the information
you need, such as the following:
•
Protocols you plan to route on each new interface
•
IP addresses, if you plan to configure the interfaces for IP routing
The configure command requires privileged-level access to the EXEC command interpreter, which
usually requires a password. Contact your system administrator if necessary to obtain EXEC-level
access.

Selecting a T3 Controller
You must enter the following controller command, before any other configuration commands, to select
the T3 controller you want to configure:
controller T3 interface-processor-slot/port-adapter-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7500 series router
controller T3 chassis-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7301 router\
controller T3 chassis-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7401ASR router
controller T3 chassis-slot/T3-port for Cisco 7200 series router
Examples of selecting the T3 controller follow:
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller t3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)#

Configuring Channelized mode for the Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
Configuring a Channelized T3 Link
To configure the T3 for channelized mode, use the channelized command. The following example is
for a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 1 of a Cisco 7200 series router.
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router (config)# channelized
The following example is for a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter slot 1 of a VIP in a Cisco 7500 series router.
Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller T3 1/1/0
Router (config)# channelized
Change to channelized mode will cause cbus complex reset. Proceed? [yes/no]:
When the PA-MC-2T3+ is configured for channelized T3 mode, its default MTU size is set to 1500 for
compatibility with other T3 equipment and port adapters.
When the T3 controller is configured to be channelized, 28 T1 lines are created. To configure the T1
lines, refer to the “Configuring T1 Lines” section on page 5-10.
Caution
The change in MTU sizes will cause a memory recarve and cbus complex to occur, disrupting all traffic
on the router for several minutes. (This occurs only on Cisco 7500 series routers.)
The following message will be displayed when switching from unchannelized to channelized mode on
Cisco 7500 series routers:
Change to channelized mode will cause cbus complex reset. Proceed? [yes/no]:
Type Y for ‘yes’ at the end of the warning. At the prompt, type ^Z to exit. This will allow you to exit
configuration mode and enter channelized mode.
Setting the Framing Type for the T3 Controller
At the prompt, specify the framing type using the controller command:
framing [c-bit | m23 | auto-detect]
You can set c-bit framing format as follows:
Router(config-controller)# framing c-bit
You can set m23 framing format as follows:
Router(config-controller)# framing m23
You can request the PA-MC-2T3+ to detect the framing type it is receiving from the far end and transmit
that same framing type as follows:
Router(config-controller)# framing auto-detect

Configuring a Channelized T3 Link
Specifying the Cable Length for the T3 Controller
At the prompt, specify the cable length using the controller command:
cablelength feet
where:
•
feet is a numeral from 0 to 450.
•
The default value is 49 feet.
An example follows:
Router(config-controller)# cablelength 40
Note
For the cablelength feet command, user-specified T3 cable lengths are structured into ranges as follows:
0–49 and 50–450 to represent short and long cables.
If the numerical value entered by the user falls within the lower range, then the PA-MC-2T3+ T3 port is
set for short cable output levels. If the value falls into higher range, the long cable output levels will be
used.
In the preceding example, a cable length of 40 is specified, which means that the 0–49 range is used. If
you change the cable length to 45, then the 0–49 range still applies. Further, if you specify a cable length
of 100 or 200, the 50–450 range applies in both cases. Only moving from one range (0–49) to the other
range (50–450) has an effect. The actual cable-length number you enter is stored in the configuration
file. It is recommended that the actual cable length be entered to ensure future compatibility.
Setting the Clock Source for the T3 Controller
At the prompt, set the internal or line clock source for the selected T3 controller with the controller
command:
clock source {internal | line}
The default is clock source internal.
Examples follow:
•
Instruct the PA-MC-2T3+ to use a line clock source.
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# clock source line
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# clock source line
•
Instruct the PA-MC-2T3+ to use an internal clock source.
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# clock source internal
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:

Configuring MDL Messages for the T3 Controller
You can configure Maintenance Data Link (MDL) messages (which are defined in the
ANSI T1.107a-1990 specification) on the PA-MC-2T3+.
Note
MDL messages are only supported when the T3 framing is set for c-bit parity. (See the “Setting the
Framing Type for the T3 Controller” section on page 5-5.)
To configure MDL messages, use the controller commands:
mdl {transmit {path | idle-signal | test-signal} | string {eic | lic | fic | unit | pfi | port | generator}
string}
no mdl {transmit {path | idle-signal | test-signal} | string {eic | lic | fic | unit | pfi | port |
generator} string}
where:
•
eic is the equipment identification code (up to 10 characters).
•
lic is the location identification code (up to 11 characters).
•
fic is the frame identification code (up to 10 characters).
•
unit is the unit identification code (up to 6 characters).
•
pfi is the facility identification code to send in the MDL path message (up to 38 characters).
•
port is the equipment port, which initiates the idle signal, to send in the MDL idle signal message
(up to 38 characters).
•
generator is the generator number to send in the MDL test signal message (up to 38 characters).
Use the no form of this command to remove MDL messages. The default is that no MDL message is
configured.
Examples of MDL Message Configuration
Examples of configuring MDL messages follow:
•
Enter controller configuration mode first.
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router# configure t

Configuring the Loopback Mode for the T3 Controller
With loopbacks, you can detect and isolate equipment malfunctions by testing the connection between
the PA-T3+ interface and the remote T3 device such as a DS3 MUX. Remote loopback sends a command
to loop the T3 line at the far end (central office). It can be used to diagnose problems with cables from
the port adapter to the switching office. Network loopback loops the PA-MC-2T3+ T3 port back to the
network allowing the remote end to test the connection to the PA-MC-2T3+. Local loopback loops the
PA-MC-2T3+ T3 port output back to itself allowing it to be tested in isolation from the T3 cables and
remote T3 equipment.
The loopback subcommand places an interface in loopback mode, which enables test packets that are
generated from the ping command to loop through a remote device and cables. If the packets complete
the loop, the connection is good. If not, you can isolate a fault to the remote device or cables in the path
of the loopback test.
You can configure the T3 controller for loopback modes using the controller command:
loopback [local | network | remote]
The default is no loopback.
To return the T3 controller to its default unlooped condition, use the no form of the command.
Table 5-1 provides examples of the loopback {local | network | remote} command.

network (before the framer at the remote
T3 device).
1. Remote loopback mode works with C-bit framing only. The other loopback modes listed above work with C-bit, and M23. Refer to the “Setting the
Framing Type for the T3 Controller” section on page 5-5 for information on configuring C-bit framing.
Configuring the T3 controller to Enable Remote Loopback
Equipment customer loopback enables the PA-MC-2T3+ port adapter to respond to remote T3
loopback and T1 loopback requests it receives from the remote site, while equipment network
loopback causes the PA to ignore remote T3 and T1 loopback commands.
equipment [customer | network] loopback
router(config)# controller T3 3/0
router(config-controller)# equipment customer loopback
router(config)# controller T3 3/0
router(config-controller)# equipment network loopback
Note
T3 remote loopbacks are only available when you use c-bit parity framing.
Shutting Down the T3 Controller
You can shut down the T3 controller on the PA-MC-2T3+ with the controller command:
shutdown
This command sends a DS3 idle signal toward the network. You can bring the T3 controller back up with
the no shutdown controller command.
Examples follow:
•
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller t3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# shutdown
•

For consistency throughout the following configuration examples and whenever possible, the port
addresses 1/0/0 and 1/0/0/1:1 are used for Cisco 7500 series routers and 1/0 and 1/0/1:1 for Cisco 7200
series routers.
Your PA-MC-2T3+ port addressing might be different depending on the Cisco 7200 series router chassis
slot or the interface processor slot in which your VIP is installed and the VIP port adapter slot in which
your PA-MC-2T3+ is installed.
Creating a Logical Channel Group on a T1 Line
You can create a logical channel group on a T1 line using the following controller command:
t1 t1-line-number channel-group channel-group-number timeslots list-of-timeslots
[speed {56 | 64}]
where:
•
t1-line-number is 1–28.
•
channel-group defines a logical channel group.
•
channel-group-number is 0–23.
•
timeslots list-of-timeslots can be 1–24 or a combination of subranges within 1–24 (each subrange
is a list of timeslots of the T1 line).
•
speed{56 | 64} is an optional argument that specifies the speed of a time slot to be either 56 kbps or
64 kbps.
Configure logical channel group 20 on T1 line 1 and assign channelized timeslots 1 to 5 and 20 to 23.
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# t1 1 channel-group 20 timeslots 1-5, 20-23

Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# t1 1 channel-group 20 timeslots 1-5, 20-23
Note
Each T1 link may have up to 24 channel groups with an overall limit of 128 for the 28 T1 links on each
T3 port. Unused channel groups in one T3 port may not be used by the other T3 port.
Note
Each channel group defined with this command causes a serial interface to be created. Refer to the
“Performing a Basic Serial Interface Configuration” section on page 5-24 for instructions on configuring
these interfaces.
Note
All the encapsulation formats, such as PPP, HDLC, SMDS, Frame Relay, and switching types are
applicable to the serial interface and can be set using the serial interface configuration commands.
Removing a Logical Channel Group from a T1 Line
You can remove a logical channel group from a T1 line with the following controller command:
no t1 t1-line-number channel-group channel-group-number
where:
•
t1-line-number is 1–28.
•
channel-group-number is 0–23.
Remove logical channel group 10 from channelized T1 line 1.
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# no t1 1 channel-group 10
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# no t1 1 channel-group 10
Note
If logical channel groups had previously been configured on a port, and you switch to ‘no channelized’
mode, first remove all channel groups before invoking the ‘no channelized’ command.
Setting the Framing Format on a T1 Line
You can specify the T1 framing format using the controller command:
t1 t1-line-number framing {esf | sf}
where:
•
The default framing format is extended super frame (ESF).
•
t1-line-number is 1–28.
Examples follow:
•
Set Super Frame (SF) framing format for T1 line 6.

The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# t1 16 framing esf
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# t1 16 framing esf
Note
Use of the 0xFF HDLC idle pattern may help prevent false yellow alarms in the remote T1 device when
SF framing is used.
Setting the Yellow Alarm Configuration for a T1 Line
You can use the [no] t1 t1-line-number yellow {detection | generation} command (where
t1-line-number is 1–28) to turn the detection or generation of a yellow alarm on and off. When you select
SF framing, you should consider using the no t1-line-number yellow detection command to turn off
yellow alarm detection, because the yellow alarm can be incorrectly detected with SF framing.
Setting the Clock Source on a T1 Line
You can set the internal or line (network) clock source for a T1 line with the controller command:
t1 t1-line-number clock source {internal | line}
where:
•
t1-line-number is 1–28.
•
The default clock source is internal.

Router(config-controller)# t1 1 clock source internal
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# t1 1 clock source internal
•
Instruct T1 line 16 to use a line clock source received from the network.
The example that follows is for a port adapter on a VIP in interface processor slot 1:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0/0
Router(config-controller)# t1 16 clock source line
The example that follows is for a port adapter in slot 1 of the Cisco 7200 series routers:
Router(config)# controller T3 1/0
Router(config-controller)# t1 16 clock source line
Note
Normally the T1 link should be configured to use the line clock recovered from the network. In cases
where the network does not provide the clock, such as two PA-MC-2T3+ port adapters connected
back-to-back, one end of the T1 link must be set to internal clock and the other end to line clock.
Setting the FDL Configuration for a T1 Line
To enable and disable 1-second transmissions of performance reports through the facility data link (per
ANSI T1.403 specification), you must use the following command on both ends of the connection:
t1 t1-line-number fdl ansi
where: t1-line-number is 1–28.
Note
You can use this command only when the T1 framing is ESF. Use the no form of the command to disable
remote performance reports.
Setting Loopbacks on a T1 Line
If you have difficulty with the PA-MC-2T3+ configuration or installation, you can troubleshoot the port
adapter using the loopback command. Specify loopback for a T1 line using the following command:
t1 t1-line-number loopback [local | network | remote]
where: t1-line-number is 1–28.
Note
This command requires that you are in T3 controller mode.
Note
fdl loopback commands are available only for T1 lines configured for ESF framing.
Explanations of specific loopback modes follow:

Configuring a Channelized T3 Link
local
Loops the router output data back toward the router at the T1
framer and sends an AIS signal out toward the network.
network {line | payload}
Loops the data back toward the network before the T1 framer
and automatically sets a local loopback at the HDLC
controllers (line), or loops the payload data back toward the
network at the T1 framer and automatically sets a local
loopback at the HDLC controllers (payload).
remote line fdl {ansi | bellcore}
Sends a repeating, 16-bit ESF data link code word (00001110
11111111 for ANSI; 00010010 11111111 for Bellcore) to the
remote end, requesting that it enter into a network line
loopback.
Specify the ansi keyword to enable the remote line facility
data link (FDL) ANSI loopback on the T1 channel, per the
ANSI T1.403 specification.
Specify the bellcore keyword to enable the remote SmartJack
loopback on the T1 channel, per the TR-TSY-000312
specification.
remote line inband
Sends a repeating, 5-bit inband pattern (00001) to the remote
end, requesting that it enter into a network line loopback.
remote payload [fdl] [ansi]
Sends a repeating, 16-bit ESF data link code word (00010100
11111111) to the remote end, requesting that it enter into a
network payload loopback. Enables the remote payload
Facility Data Link (FDL) ANSI loopback on the T1 channel.
You can optionally specify fdl and ansi, but it is not
necessary.

Configuring a BER Test on a T1 Line
Bit error rate test (BERT) circuitry is built into the PA-MC-2T3+. With BER tests, you can test cables
and signal problems in the field. You can configure BER tests on each of the 28 T1 lines but only one
BER test can be active at a time.
There are two categories of test patterns that can be generated by the onboard BER test circuitry:
pseudorandom and repetitive. The former test patterns are polynomial based numbers and conform to
the CCITT/ITU O.151 and O.153 specifications; the latter test patterns are zeros or ones, or alternating
zeros and ones.
A list of the available test patterns follows:
•
Pseudorandom test patterns:
– 2^11 (per CCITT/ITU O.151)

– 2^15 (per CCITT/ITU O.151)
– 2^20 (per CCITT/ITU O.153)
– 2^20 QRSS (per CCITT/ITU O.151)
– 2^23 (per CCITT/ITU O.151)
•
Repetitive test patterns:
– All zeros (0s)
– All ones (1s)
– Alternating zeros (0s) and ones (1s)
Both the total number of error bits received and the total number of bits received are available for
analysis. You can set the testing period from 1 minute to 14,400 minutes (240 hours), and you can also
retrieve the error statistics anytime during the BER test.
Note
BER testing for the T3 link is not supported in channelized T3 mode. It is only supported for
unchannelized T3 ports.
When running a BER test, your system expects to receive the same pattern that it is transmitting. To
accomplish this, two common options are available:
•
Use a loopback somewhere in the link or network.
•
Configure remote testing equipment to transmit the same BER test pattern at the same time.
Sending a BER Test Pattern on a T1 Line
You can send a BERT pattern on a T1 line with the controller command. The unframed option causes the
BERT pattern to use the entire T1 bandwidth including the T1 framing as well as payload bits. If
“unframed” is omitted, then the T1 will be either SF or ESF framed as configured by the “T1 n framing”
command and the BERT pattern will occupy only the T1 payload bits.
t1 t1-line-number bert pattern pattern interval time [unframed]
where:
•
t1-line-number is 1–28.
•
time is 1–14400 minutes.
•
pattern is:
– 0s, repetitive test pattern of all zeros (as 00000...)
– 1s, repetitive test pattern of all ones (as 11111...)
– 2^11, pseudorandom test pattern (2,048 bits long)
– 2^15, pseudorandom O.151 test pattern (32,768 bits long).
– 2^20-O153, pseudorandom O.153 test pattern (1,048,575 bits long)
– 2^20-QRSS, pseudorandom QRSS O.151 test pattern (1,048,575 bits long)
– 2^23, pseudorandom O.151 test pattern (8,388,607 bits long)
– alt-0-1, repetitive alternating test pattern of zeros (0s) and ones (1s), as 01010101
Examples follow:
•
Send a BERT pseudorandom pattern of 2^23 through T1 line 10 for 5 minutes.

show controllers T3 chassis-slot/t3-port/t1-line-number for Cisco 7200 series router
where: t1-line-number is 1–28.
You can view the results of a BER test at the following times:
•
After you terminate the test using the no t1 bert command
•
After the test runs completely
•
Anytime during the test (in real time)

The following explains the output of the preceding command, line by line:
Output Display Line
Explanation
BERT test result (running)
This line indicates the current state of the test. In this case,
“running” indicates that the BER test is still in process. After
a test is completed, “done” is displayed.
Test Pattern : 2^11, Status : Sync, Sync Detected : 1
This line indicates the test pattern you selected for the test
(2^11), the current synchronization state (sync), and the
number of times synchronization has been detected during
this test (1).
Interval : 5 minute(s), Time Remain : 5 minute(s)
This line indicates the time the test takes to run and the time
remaining for the test to run.
Interval : 5 minute(s), Time Remain : 2 minute(s)
(unable to complete)
For a BER test that you terminate, this line indicates the time
the test would have taken to run and the time remaining for
the test to run had you not terminated it; “unable to complete”
signifies that you interrupted the test.
Bit Errors(Since BERT Started): 6 bits,
These four lines show the bit errors that have been detected
versus the total number of test bits that have been received
since the test started and since the last synchronization was
detected. Bits and errors are only counted when the test status
is “sync”.
Bits Received(Since BERT start): 8113 Kbits
Bit Errors(Since last sync): 6 bits
Bits Received(Since last sync): 8113 Kbits
Note
Unless unframed is selected, the BER test runs over the currently configured framing option for the
specified T1 line (ESF or SF). Before running a BER test, you should configure the framing option that
is appropriate to your application. (Refer to the “Setting the Framing Format on a T1 Line” section on
page 5-11.)
Terminating a BER Test
You can terminate a BER test with the controller command:
no t1 t1-line-number bert
where: t1-line-number is 1–28.
Examples follow:
Terminate the BER test running on T1 line 10.

Performing a Basic Serial Interface Configuration, page 5-24
Performing a Basic Serial Interface Configuration
Note
The Cisco 7200 VXR Port Adapter Jacket Card requires no configuration. Configure a port adapter in it
as you would any other port adapter.
Following are instructions for a basic configuration: enabling an interface and specifying IP routing. You
might also need to enter other configuration subcommands, depending on the requirements for your
system configuration and the protocols you plan to route on the interface. For complete descriptions of
configuration subcommands and the configuration options available for serial interfaces, refer to the

Using the show controllers Command
You can display information for all T1 lines within a PA-MC-2T3+ with the command:
show controllers T3 slot/port-adapter/port [brief | tabular | remote performance]
where:
Note
•
brief displays a list of configurations only.
•
tabular displays a list of configurations and MIB data in a tabular format.
•
remote performance displays a list of performance data from the remote end of a T1 connection.
If you use the show controllers T3 slot/port-adapter/port command without either of the three optional
arguments (brief, tabular, or remote performance), all information is displayed for the T3 controller
you specified; therefore, the resulting display output can be extensive.

Configuring Channelized mode for the Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
Checking the Configuration
Note
You can use these three show controllers T3 commands for Cisco 7200 series, Cisco 7301 routers, and
Cisco 7401ASR routers in which the PA-MC-2T3+ is supported. The syntax is as follows:
— show controllers T3 chassis-slot/T3-port brief
— show controllers T3 chassis-slot/T3-port tabular
— show controllers T3 chassis-slot/T3-port remote performance
Examples of these show controllers T3 commands for Cisco 7200 series and Cisco 7401ASR routers
are not shown.
The show controllers command with no arguments displays information about every controller and
interface in the router.
The following example is for a Cisco 7500 series router:
•

.
(additional displayed text not shown)
Note
In the preceding example, remote performance data is unavailable.
If you use the show controllers T3 command without specifying a port address
(slot/port-adapter/port/t1-line-number), all information is displayed for all 28 T1 lines within every T3
port adapter in the router; therefore, the resulting display output can be extensive.
You can also display brief configuration information or tabular configuration and MIB information about
a specific T1 line within a PA-MC-2T3+ with the command:
show controllers T3 slot/port-adapter/t3-port/t1-line-number [brief | tabular | remote performance]
where:
•
t1-line-number is 1–28.
•
brief displays a list of configurations only.
•
tabular displays a list of configurations and MIB data in a tabular format.
The following examples show command output display information for a PA-MC-2T3+ in port adapter
slot 0 on a VIP installed in interface processor slot 1, using the following commands.

Configuring Channelized mode for the Cisco PA-MC-2T3+
Checking the Configuration
Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connectivity
Using the ping command, you can verify that an interface port is functioning properly. This section
provides a brief description of this command. Refer to the publications listed in the “Related
Documentation” section on page viii for detailed command descriptions and examples.
The ping command sends echo request packets out to a remote device at an IP address that you specify.
After sending an echo request, the system waits a specified time for the remote device to reply. Each
echo reply is displayed as an exclamation point (!) on the console terminal; each request that is not
returned before the specified timeout is displayed as a period (.). A series of exclamation points (!!!!!)
indicates a good connection; a series of periods (.....) or the messages [timed out] or [failed] indicate a
bad connection.
Following is an example of a successful ping command to a remote server with the address 10.0.0.10:
Router# ping 10.0.0.10 <Return>
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to 10.0.0.10, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/15/64 ms
Router#
If the connection fails, verify that you have the correct IP address for the destination and that the device
is active (powered on), and repeat the ping command.
