Note: The other dip-switch SW2 is a 2-bit switch, which shall be used by manufacturing people.
Users are not advised to change the default status.
3.2.2 Fault-Pass-Through Capability Explanation
When Fault-Pass-Through capability is enabled, there are 3 situations that we call it a link
fault.
1.The equipment will monitor the status of remote Ethernet interface. When it changes to
link down from link up, we take it as a link fault of remote Ethernet. At the same time, the
status of local module will change to link down form link up. It will not be recovered until
the fault disappears at remote site.
2.The equipment will monitor the status of remote E1 interface. When it changes to loss of
signal status from normal, we take is as a link fault of remote E1 link. At the mean time,
the equipment will cut off the transmission of local E1 interface but not send AIS signal.
-5-
Beijing Raisecom Science & Technology Co., Ltd
The local E1 interface will not recover until the fault disappears at remote site.
3.The equipment will monitor the status of optical link, either transmitting alarm or receiving
alarm will be taken as an optical link fault. At the mean time, the Ethernet interface status
will change to link down and the E1 interface will be cut off. The Ethernet interface and
E1 interface will not recover until the optical interface recovers.
The fault-pass-through capability is designed for users who have particular requirements.
When it is disabled, any fault at remote site and at optical interface has nothing to do with local
interfaces; all the interfaces of local module will be open.
In order to avoid misunderstanding, users are advised to use it cautiously. The factory default
status is disabled.

Note: when setup any kinds of loop-back at the local Ethernet Multiplexer, the “remote loop-back”
switch at remote Ethernet Multiplexer must be at default status.
When the module is at E1 remote loop-back status, the Ethernet data communication will not
be interfered.
3.2.4 How to Implement Remote Network Management
When the equipment is connected as the following topology, the remote network management can
be implemented.
A.
The host-site module is installed in Raisecom’s dedicated 16-slot 3U-high chassis, which
also has the network management module installed. The remote-site module is installed in
Raisecom’s single slot chassis.

B.
The both modules are installed in 16-slot 3U-high chassis, but only the host-site chassis is
equipped with network management module. The remote-site module shall be set to “forced
remote network management mode”. That is to say, the 8th switch shall be turned to ON.
Chapter 4 Installation and Test
4.1 Inspect after Opening
Please first check if the models and part numbers are in consistence, and also check if the
equipments are damaged.
4.2 Preparation before Installation

Carefully read this manual
Prepare all kinds of the cable. Ensure that they are not short-circuited. Refer to Appendix A for
cable making.
Ensure the pressure of power supply is in the tolerance range, the chassis is well connected with
the ground.
Prepare the BERT and optical power meter for test of line quality.
Place the equipment at stable and secure environment. Pay attention to the requirements of the
ambience.
4.3 Installation
This module can be installed into Raisecom’s dedicated 16-slot 3U-high chassis, 4-slot
1U-high chassis, and single slot chassis. Slowly insert the module into the slot to the end, and fasten
the fixing screw tightly.
4.3.1 Connecting the Cables
z
E1 Signal Interface
120 Ohm balanced signal. Connect with twisted-pair cable, Pin 1, 2 for output and Pin 5, 6 for
input.

Beijing Raisecom Science & Technology Co., Ltd
z
Ethernet Interface
Connect with Cat. 5 or hyper Cat. 5 twisted-pair cables. Either straight-through or crossover
cable is OK.
z
Optical Interface
Plug the tail fiber into the fiber socket to the end.
4.3.2 Function Configuration
After connecting the cables and applying the power supply, there shall not be alarms at the
optical interface.
If users want to configure the dip-switches, first unplug the module from the chassis and then
use a flat screw-driver to set switches.
Chapter 5 Troubleshooting
If there is any problem during installation and operation, please try the following solutions. If
the problem still cannot be solved, please contact distributors for technical support.
The following explanations and solutions to optical and E1 LOS alarms are for the local
module. If the alarms are at the remote site, please solve them at remote site.
z Power (PWR) indicator (Green) is not ON
Answer: Power supply fails. Check whether the power supply is working properly
z LAL indicator (Red) at optical interface is ON
Answer: Loss of signal at the optical interface. Check whether the input of optical fiber is connected
properly. Users can test the optical power using optical power meter. The optical power shall be
larger than the receiving sensitivity.
z E1 sub-channel L/R LOS indicator (Red) is ON
Answer: The local E1 sub-channel receiving signal is lost. If the indicator is flashing, it means the
remote E1 sub-channel receiving signal is lost. Please check if the E1 interface is well
connected.
