Radio Frequency Interference Regulations
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 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.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Vanguard Networks could void the
user's authority to operate the equipment.
This Class A digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian Interference-Causing
Equipment Regulations.
This is a Class A product. Operation of this equipment in a residential environment may
cause radio interference, in which case the user may be required to take adequate measures to
correct the interference at his/her own expense.
This product was verified under test conditions that included use of shielded DTE cable(s).
Use of different cables will invalidate verification and increase the risk of causing
interference to radio and TV reception.
You can obtain the proper cables from Vanguard Networks.
Telecommunications Regulations
Equipment that complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules includes a label or permanent marking
on the printed circuit board that connects to the network that contains, among other information, the FCC registration number and ringer equivalence number (REN) for this equipment.
If requested, this information must be provided to the telephone company. A plug and jack
used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply
with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant
telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected
to a compatible modular jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone
line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to
an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To
be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total
RENs, contact the local telephone company. The REN for this product is part of the product
identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the
REN without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3).
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify
you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance
notice isn't practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as soon as possible.
Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is
necessary. The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations
or procedures that could affect the operation of the equipment. If this happens the telephone
company will provide advance notice in order for you to make necessary modifications to
maintain uninterrupted service. If the equipment is causing harm to the telephone network,
the telephone company may request that you disconnect the equipment until the problem is
resolved. Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs. Contact the state public
utility commission, public service commission or corporation commission for information. If
your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the
installation of this equipment does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions
about what will disable alarm equipment, consult a trained technician.
Equipment that meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal Equipment Technical
Specifications is conformed by the registration number. Equipment that complies with
Industry rules includes a label or permanent marking on the printed circuit board that
connects to the network. The abbreviation, IC, before the registration number signifies that
the registration was performed based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry
Canada technical specifications were met. It does not imply that Industry Canada approved
the equipment.

Vanguard 7300 Functions and Features
Feature Cards and
Mezzanine Cards
Vanguard 7300 Series products are highly scalable with Vanguard Networkssupplied option cards and half-size Mezzanine Cards. Currently Vanguard 7300
Series products support these full-size cards:
• Processor Card (the Central Processor Unit (CPU))
- MPC750 - with a 10/100BaseT Ethernet port
- IBM750FX - with two 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet ports
• Carrier Expansion Card
• T1/E1/PRI Card with T1/E1/PRI Rear Transition Module
• T3/E3 ATM Card that includes:
- Standard Carrier Expansion Card
- T3/E3 Rear Transition Module
• Serial Card with Serial Rear Transition Module
• Token Ring Card
Each of these cards occupies a full slot in a Vanguard 7300 chassis.
The Vanguard 7300 Series also supports the following half-size piggyback cards,
Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Mezzanine Cards, known as PMCs:
• 10/100BaseT Ethernet PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC)
• Voice PCI Mezzanine Card (a custom T1/E1/PRI card PMC)
• T3 ATM PCI Mezzanine Card (a custom T3 ATM card PMC)
• Advanced Encryption Card (AEC)
A Vanguard 7300 PMC does not require a chassis slot, but mounts on top of one of
the full-size Vanguard 7300 cards. The full-size card serves as the PMC’s host.
For example, a single 10/100 BaseT Ethernet PMC can be hosted by the Vanguard
7300 CPU Card, or two 10/100 BaseT Ethernet PMCs can be hosted by the Carrier
Expansion Card. The T1/E/1PRI Card’s Voice PMC can only be hosted by a
Vanguard 7300’s T1/E1/PRI Card.

Vanguard 7300 Platform Version 2
Introduction
This section describes the Vanguard 7300 Platform.
The Vanguard 7300 The Vanguard 7300 Version 2 Series chassis with its standardized CompactPCI bus
Platform
architecture permits high-speed, high-availability, compute-intensive
telecommunication applications. With its extremely high bandwidth and hot-swap
capability, the CompactPCI bus is ideal for high-speed data communication
telecommunication industry applications.
Vanguard 7300 Platform Version 2
The Vanguard 7300 Chassis - Version 2
Introduction
Vanguard 7300 Series chassis fit standard equipment racks, and the cards have
PICMG standardized telecom-grade connectors. Hot-swappable boards and power
supplies can be removed and replaced without taking the router out its rack and
without disconnecting unrelated cables.
7310 and 7330
Routers
The combination of the CompactPCI bus, special-purpose, metal-front, screwfastened PCI cards, half-size PMCs, and rear-cabled I/O transition modules provides
reliable, high-performance solutions for the most demanding routing environment.
For a cutaway view of the center midplane CompactPCI bus design implemented in
Vanguard 7300 Revision 2 Series router, refer to Figure 1-11.

Vanguard 7300 Cards
Description
The Vanguard 7300’s midplane slots hold special-purpose printed circuit cards
and rear transition modules accessible from both the front and the rear of the
rack-mounted chassis. Card-swapping time is minimized, port cabling is organized,
and low-level software customizing is eliminated.
Depending on its purpose, a CompactPCI card can be:
• A single card with or without connectors that inserts into a front chassis slot
• A single card with one or more half-sized PMCs mounted on it that inserts
into a front chassis slot
• A two-part card that inserts into a front chassis slot and requires a rear
transition module inserted into its matching rear chassis slot
Figure 1-12 shows a two-part Serial card plugged into the front and rear of the
Vanguard 7300 midplane. The rear transition module has eight ports for cabling from
the rear of the chassis. Fasteners on every card or module lock it securely in its
chassis slot and indicate that the card or module is seated properly.

CompactPCI Connectors
Description
The CompactPCI midplane is located toward the middle of the chassis, and each card
slot is equipped with male J1 connectors (pins). The plug-in cards use socket
(female) connectors. The same type of connectors are used on the rear side of the
midplane to accept rear I/O transition modules. Midplane connectors have external
metal shields for proper shielding and grounding in noisy environments. Controlled
impedance minimizes unwanted signal reflections.
Figure 1-13 shows the standard five CompactPCI card connectors that make up the
CompactPCI bus interface and the user input/output sub-bus. The following table
summarizes the function of the standard card connectors:

CompactPCI cards and rear transition modules plug into the midplane’s front and
rear pin connectors. Each card or module uses IEC-approved 110-pin connectors for
power, ground, and all 32-bit and 64-bit PCI signals, rather than card-edge
connectors. See Figure 1-14 for views of chassis slot female connector sockets.

PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC)
Introduction
10/100BaseT Ethernet Mezzanine Cards (PMCs)can be installed in the PMC slot on
the CPU card and in the two PMC slots on the Carrier Expansion Card. Because a
PMC does not require a full slot, it is mounted on a full-size card that serves as its
host. The following full-size Vanguard 7300 cards can host PMCs:
• CPU Card (one PMC slot)
• Carrier Expansion Card (two PMC slots)
Dual-port 10/100BaseT Ethernet Mezzanine Card (PMC)
Description
The 10/100BaseT Ethernet Mezzanine Card (PMC) mounts on the CPU card and
on the Carrier Expansion Card. This 10/100BaseT Ethernet PMC provides two
auto-sensing ports that can switch between 10BaseT and 100BaseT, depending on
the link data rate, to provide the highest possible 10 or 100 Mbps throughput.
An auto-sensing port detects the speed of hubs and adapters and negotiates
automatically for the maximum possible throughput speed. The Vanguard 7300
Ethernet interface complies with the IEEE 802.3 for 10BaseT and 100BaseT.
Front View
The 10/100BaseT Ethernet PMC provides two RJ45 connectors and six indicator

T1/E1/PRI Card and Rear Transition Module
Introduction
T1/E1/PRI card functions are provided by a two-part card that occupies a single
Vanguard 7300 chassis slot: the T1/E1/PRI card and the T1/E1/PRI Rear Transition
Module, which is shielded with an attached metal jacket. The following versions of
the T1/E1/PRI card are available:
• 8-Port
• 12-port
Ports 1 and 2 can be cabled for either voice or data (but not both); ports 3 through 8
or 12 are data-only.
T1/E1/PRI Card
The T1/E1/PRI card offers high-density termination of voice and data traffic on the
same card. Each card can support up to 12 physical rear transition module ports.
Each port can be configured to run as an independent T1, E1, or ISDN PRI port.
T1/E1/PRI Rear Transition Module
The metal-jacket-shielded T1/E1/PRI rear transition module connects to the T1/E1/
PRI card and provides 12 RJ48C rear panel connectors. There is only a 12-port
version of the T1/E1/PRI rear transition module; the 8-port version has 12 physical
ports, but only eight of those ports function. Voice transmission is available only on
ports 1 and 2.
T1/E1/PRI Card
Functions
The T1/E1/PRI card supports:
T1/E1/PRI Timing
Considerations
The T1/E1/PRI card can accept up to three independent clock sources; however, all
circuits connected to ports 1 through 4 must be synchronized to the same source to
prevent frame slips.
• Channelized or fractional T1/E1 support
• ISDN PRI to support dial-backup or bandwidth-on-demand voice operations
• Up to 24 channels for each physical T1 or T1/PRI port and up to 31 channels
for each physical E1 or E1/PRI port
• Voice functions with the optional Voice Server/DSP PMC installed
• Termination of voice and data traffic on different ports of the same card (with
a Voice Server/DSP PMC installed)
Similarly, ports 5 through 8 can be synchronized to a different clock source from 1
through 4, but must all be synchronized to the same source. Ports 9 through 12
comprises a third timing group.
Voice connections can be connected only to ports 1 and 2. Voice and data cannot be
combined on a single T1/E1/PRI port. For example, when you designate port 1 as a
voice port, it cannot carry data. Similarly, you can specify port 2 as either voice or
data, but never both, and ports 3 through 12 are restricted to data only.

T3/E3 ATM Card
Introduction
The T3/E3 ATM Card is a Compact PCI card that provides an intelligent connection
between the ATM layer and the T3/E3 physical data port.
Functionality
The T3/E3 ATM Card functionality is provided by a two-part card that occupies a
single Vanguard 7300 chassis slot: a standard Carrier Expansion Card with the PMC
mounted, and the T3/E3 Rear Transition Module.
The T3/E3 ATM Card supports:
• Standard T3/E3 physical interface with the T3/E3 Rear Transition Module
installed
• Non-channelized, T3/E3
• Supports both T3 (up to 44.736 Mbps) and E3 interfaces (up to 34.368 Mbps)
• ATM User to Network Interface (UNI) version 3.1 with the ATM PMC
installed
• ATM Adaptation Layer 5 (AAL5)
• Constant Bit Rate (CBR)
• Unspecified Bit Rate (UBR)
• Variable Bit Rate (VBR - real time and non-real time)
• FRF.8 Transparent Mode
• Annex G Termination
• SNMP Agent
• Internal and external clocking
• Permanent Virtual Circuits (PVC)
• Up to 4000 Virtual Channel Connections (VCC)
• Maximum coaxial cable length of 450 feet
ATM CBR Station
Configuration
Occasionally Constant Bit Rate ATM stations can become deactivated. (The total
aggregate PCR does not exceed the link speed.) This occurs because the CBR
scheduling is very rigid and has to fit into the transmit scheduling table in a certain
way. Even though it appears that bandwidth is available, if it does not fit in the
scheduling table, the station is not created. To increase the chances of fitting into the
scheduling table, the larger CBR entries (PCR rate) should be created first. Use VBR
stations instead.
Carrier Expansion Card
The Carrier Expansion Card provides an interface:
• between the PMC Segmentation And Reassembly (SAR) module and T3/E3
Rear Transition Module and
• between the SAR module and host
This Card supports one slot T3/E3 ATM PMC and it must be installed into PMC Slot
1. No other PMCs can be installed on the same Carrier Card with a T3/E3 ATM
PMC.

T3/E3 ATM Mezzanine Card (PMC)
Description
To support T3/E3 ATM functions, a T3/E3 ATM PCI Mezzanine card (PMC) must
be installed in slot 1 on the Carrier Expansion Card. The T3/E3 ATM PMC is a
customized card designed to be mounted only on the Vanguard 7300 Carrier
Expansion Card. This PMC cannot be installed anywhere else. Figure 2-19 on
page 2-29 shows the PMC mounted on the Carrier Expansion Card.
Note
The T3 ATM PMC Card is only supported in slot 1 of the Carrier Expansion
Card. Due to the design of the T3 ATM Rear Transition Module, only the top slot
of the Carrier Expansion Card supports the T3 ATM PMC.
Functions
The T3/E3 ATM PMC converts data to and from ATM cells and transfers the cells to
and from host memory over the PCI bus. The T3/E3 ATM PMC provides these
functions:
• ATM over T3/E3 with a PCI host interface
• User Network Interface (UNI) to T3/E3
• Support for RFC2496 T3/E3 MIB

The T1/E1 card has three groups of 4 ports (2 groups for an 8 port card). Each T1/E1
card can have a maximum of 3 different time bases on a single 12 port card (2 for 8
port cards), one on each of the groups.
The Time base for all four ports in each group must be the same, either from an
external source within the group, another group, another card or an internal
oscillator. You can set each port to Internal, Primary External (Prim_Ext), or
Secondary External (Sec-Ext). This setting determines whether the attached device
provides the timing or accepts timing from each port and also sets the priority of this
clock.
• There are three types of clock buses in the node, Group Clock, Card Clock
and System Clock. There are three Group Clock busses on each twelve-port
card (two for 8 port cards), one for each group of four ports. This locks the
timing of each of the four ports in a group together.

Vanguard 7300 Cards
• There is one Card Clock on each card. Card Clock allows you to lock multiple
Groups together and must be used for voice ports.
• There is one System Clock bus in the node, which allows you to lock multiple
cards together.
You set each group on a card (four ports) as to whether it participates in Card Clock
or not and you set the card as to whether it participates in System Clock.

Advanced Encryption Card (AEC)
Introduction
Release 6.4 and greater supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
encryption for the Vanguard 7300 Series using the Advanced Encryption Card
(AEC). The 7300 AEC supports DES, 3DES, and AES.
Advanced
Encryption
Standard (AES)
The Advanced Encryption Standard is a Federal Information Processing Standard
(FIPS), which specifies a cryptographic algorithm for use by organizations to protect
sensitive, classified information. AES provides a better combination of security and
speed than DES or Triple-DES. AES has more elegant mathematical formulas
behind it, and only requires one pass to encrypt data. AES was designed from the
ground up to be fast, unbreakable and able to support the smallest computing devices
imaginable. The big differentiators between AES and Triple-DES are the strength of
security, superior performance and better use of resources. AES provides faster
encryption and compatibility with the widest range of devices. Without AES, it
would be necessary to have different encryption technologies for application-specific
purposes, such as wireless e-mail, financial transactions or quality-of-servicespecific applications.
AES is defined for 128, 192 and 256 bit key lengths.
Release 6.4 and greater supports the 7300 Encryption Card for the
Vanguard 7300 Series. Please refer to the Virtual Private Network (VPN) Manual
(Part Number T0103-10) and the Encryption Manual (Part Number T0103-09) for
more information.

How to Choose a Site
How to Choose a Site
Introduction
Before you install a Vanguard 7300 Series router, select a site for the device. The site
should be free of accumulated dust and environmental extremes. Refer to
Appendix A, Specifications, for detailed dimensions.
Power
Requirements
Choose a site that is within an appropriate distance (approximately six feet) of a
power source. Depending on your application and the country in which the Vanguard
7300 Series product is to operate, the power source must be a grounded 100 to 240 V
AC outlet, 60 to 50 Hz.
The Vanguard 7300 Series DC input version specifications are -40VDC to -72VDC
input (-48 DC version) with a maximum input current at -40VDC. See Appendix A,
Specifications, for specific electrical information.
Air and Cable
Clearances
Allow at least 20 inches (50.7 cm.) of clearance in front of a Vanguard 7300 chassis
to open the door, to attach cables, and to replace cards. Leave at least 20 inches
(50.7 cm) behind the unit for card removal, cable clearance, and air circulation.
Caution
Vanguard Networks 7300 series products should be used in environments designed
for computers and electronic equipment. In areas susceptible to lightning, take
precautions to prevent damage to electronic equipment. Contact your telephone
company, or an electronic accessories vendor, for information on lightning
protection equipment. Customers experiencing problems caused by surges from
lightning can eliminate such problems by installing appropriate surge suppressors on
power and data lines connected to Vanguard 7300 Series products.
Rackmount Weight To avoid hazards arising from uneven mechanical loading of the rack, plan your
Consideration
installation so that (within the limitations of equipment and cabling) the weight of
the equipment is evenly distributed in the rack. Mount the heaviest units towards the
bottom of the rack.
3-6
Vanguard 7300 Installation
How to Choose a Site
Thermal Considerations
Introduction
This section describes some of the heat and temperature factors that can affect your
Vanguard 7300 Series router.
Fan
After the unit is installed, power it up to be sure the fans are working properly.
Inlet Temperature
After the unit is running, check the ambient air temperature. Make sure it does not
exceed the operating temperature limits specified in Appendix A.
• The components of the system require an input air temperature of 5º C to 40º
C (41º F to 104º F)
• Operation between 40º C and 50º C (104º F and 122º F) is permitted for
intervals less than 96 hours
Note
On the Vanguard 7300 Version 2 Series routers, do not block the air intake
located on the left side of the chassis, or the exhaust air outlet located at the rear
right side.
Thermal Shutdown If a Vanguard 7300 Series router is not properly cooled, the power supply overheats
and shuts down, a process called thermal shutdown. The power supply remains off
until it cools, after which it automatically comes back on again.
Thermal shutdown occurs when the internal Vanguard 7300 temperature is too high.
Overheating can occur due to any of these conditions:
• Blocked vents
• Insufficient clearance around the unit
• Air inlet temperatures exceeds the operating limits
After the unit cools, it automatically powers on again. However, the unit continues to
shut down automatically until the problem is corrected.
Electrostatic Discharge Precautions
Antistatic
Precautions
Vanguard Networks recommends that you use an antistatic wrist strap and a
conductive foam pad when installing or upgrading the system. Electronic
components such as card and modules can be extremely sensitive to Electrostatic
Discharge (ESD). After removing the component from the chassis or its protective
wrapper, place the component flat on a grounded, static-free surface; and, in the case
of a card, component-side up. Do not slide the components over any surface.
If an ESD station is not available, you can avoid damage resulting from ESD by
wearing an antistatic wrist strap. Wrap one end of a wrist grounding strap around
your wrist. Attach the grounding end (usually a piece of copper foil or an alligator
clip) to an electrical ground. An electrical ground can be a piece of metal that
literally runs into the ground (such as an unpainted metal pipe) or a metal part of a
grounded electrical appliance.

Operating Your Vanguard 7300
Vanguard 7300 Port Configuration
Vanguard 7300 Port Configuration
Introduction
The Vanguard 7300’s unique port number system provides the physical and virtual
port numbers required by the Applications Ware software for configuring the router
on your network. These conventions accommodate the mix of cards that can be
installed in a Vanguard 7300 chassis. This section described special-purpose
Vanguard 7300 ports, their configuration, and programming considerations.
Port Numbering
Vanguard 7300 port numbers are based on each card’s chassis slot number, rather
than specific cards or physical locations. This way, whatever the card mix in your
chassis, once configured, network management software can locate any referenced
Vanguard 7300 port.
Port Number
Format
A Vanguard 7300 configuration port number is a three-digit number that always
begins with the number of the board’s chassis slot -- chassis slots 1-5 on the 7310,
and chassis slots 1-8 on the 7330.
The Vanguard 7300 configuration port number format:
spx
where:
s is the number of the chassis slot (1-5 for a 7310; 1-8 for a 7330)
p is either:
- 0 or 1 to signify a port on a full-size chassis card
- 5 to indicate a port on a PMC
x is the number of that port on the full-size or PMC
For example, if your Vanguard 7300 has an 8-port Serial card in chassis slot four, the
configuration port numbers for those ports would be 401 through 408. For a Carrier
Expansion Card in chassis slot two with two PMC ports in the first PMC slot, the
Carrier Expansion Card’s configuration port numbers would be 251 and 252.
Virtual Ports
Wide Area Network (WAN) virtual ports are numbered in sequence in a range of 51
through 1000. Voice and data virtual ports are numbered sequentially from 2000
through 4000.
Operating Your Vanguard 7300
4-7
Vanguard 7300 Port Configuration
CPU Card Port
Numbers
A CPU card is always present and always resides in chassis slot 1. There are two
types of CPU cards supported in the Vanguard 7300 Series:
• MPC750
• IBM750FX
MPC750 CPU
The Vanguard 7300 MPC750 CPU card port numbers are fixed:
• The on-board RJ45 Ethernet port, labelled 10/100 BaseT, is port 101
• The console terminal port (CTP) is port 102
• When a 2-port Ethernet PMC resides in the on-board slot, labelled PCI PMC,
the configuration port numbers for the PMC’s RJ45 ports begin with 1,
representing chassis slot one, then 5 to show they are PMC ports
For example, to configure the CPU card’s pair of Ethernet PMC ports, PMC Port 1 is
always configured as port 151, and PMC Port 2 is always configured as port 152.
CPU card ports 101 and 151 are the only ports that can be used for LLC2/SDLC
conversion (SLAC). The first two lowest numbered Ethernet ports that are
configured in the node are available for LLC2/SDLC conversion (SLAC). Refer to
the section, Vanguard 7300 LLC-SDLC LAN Ports, further ahead for details on
SLAC ports.
IBM750FX CPU
The Vanguard 7300 IBM750FX CPU card port numbers are fixed:
• ETH1 (10/100/1000BaseT) is port 101
• ETH2 (10/100/1000BaseT) is port 103
• The console terminal port (CTP) is port 102
• PMC 1 is 151 and 152
• PMC 2 is 161 and 162
The first two lowest numbered Ethernet ports that are configured in the node are
available for LLC2/SDLC conversion (SLAC). On the IBM750FX the lowest
numbered Ethernet port would be 101 and 103.

If the Clock Source parameter in the FRI, PPP, X.25, SDLC, or TBOP serial port is
set to EXT or EXTLP, the Port Speed field in the FRI, PPP, X.25, SDLC, and TBOP
statistics screen might not match the speed of the actual clock on the serial line.
Caution
The Clock Speed parameter in the Port Record should be configured to the Clock
Speed the port is attached to. It is important to set the correct port speed, even when
set to external, because statistics, throughput, and capacities use this value in their
own calculations.

Vanguard 7300
LLC-SDLC LAN
Ports
To run LLC-SDLC (SLAC) on a Vanguard 7300 Series router, you must use the first
two Ethernet ports, the lowest numbered ports in the node. For example, for a
Vanguard 7300 running LLC-SDLC, the conversion ports have to be the first two
Ethernet ports on the MPC750 CPU card, which are:
• The on-board port labelled 10/100 BaseT (port number 101)
• The first PMC (PMC) Ethernet port (port number 151)
If you do not have a CPU PMC, the second Ethernet port would be the first Carrier
Expansion Card Ethernet port in that card’s PMC Slot 1.
The first two Ethernet ports on a IBM750FX CPU card are:
• ETH 1 (port number 101)
• ETH 2 (port number 103)
SLAC information is assigned to two system tables that are logically associated with
the first two physical Ethernet ports on the Vanguard 7300. The system tables are the
First Ethernet Station Table and the Second Ethernet Station Table, as shown in
Figure 4-7. Each table can contain up to 1000 LLCs. If you use any Ethernet port
other than the first two, the SLAC data is neither recognized nor reported.

BSC 3270-to-SNA
Conversion
BSC 3270-to-SNA Conversion is supported on the Vanguard 7300 Series. The BSC
3270-to-SNA Conversion allows banks and ATM network providers to retain BSC
3270-attached ATMs while providing a LAN attachment at the host. The BSC 3270to-SNA converts the upper layers of SNA and the LLC2 data link control (layer two)
protocol in the host Vanguard 7300 Series node to Display System Protocol (DSP)
for transport within Frame Relay (Annex G) or X.25.
The total number of devices supported for BSC 3270-to-SNA conversion on a
Vanguard 7300 are 2,000. The maximum number of SLAC stations supported for
BSC LU devices are 100.

Voice Port Configuration
Introduction
This section describes the H.323 Version 2 features. For more information on H.323
voice parameters, see the Vanguard Voice Manual (Part Number T0104-05).
Dynamic Coder for H.323
Description
H.323 Dynamic Coder lets you configure your 7300 device to ensure that your calls
are successfully placed. This is done using coder negotiation between other H.323
devices. This feature is limited to H.323 calls only.
How Does It Work? Using H.323 Dynamic Coder, the Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) port on
your 7300 device can be configured to allow the H.323 interface to advertise all of its
supported coders with a remote H.323 device. This action prompts the H.323
interface to dynamically negotiate, with the remote H.323 device, for a voice
compression coder, bundle format, and Voice Activity Detection (VAD) control
setting. If necessary, the PSTN port is re-configured to match the negotiated settings.
Supported Voice Compression Coders
The 7300 Series supports these voice compression coders:
• G.723.1
• G.729A
• G.711U
• G.711A
When negotiations take place, supported coders are provided in a prioritized list. The
highest prioritized coder in the list is the PSTN port configuration. The second
highest is the same coder with the opposite VAD setting. Any remaining coders
follow in this order: G.723.1, G.729A, G.711U, and G.711A.
Note
If H.323 Dynamic Coder is not enabled, the H.323 interface does not advertise
the current configuration (compression rate, bundle format, and VAD setting)
and negotiations do not take place. If the remote H.323 device cannot match the
PSTN ports configuration, the call is cleared.
Accessing and
Configuring
Dynamic Coder
Dynamic Coder for H.323 introduces one new parameter under the Port
Configuration menu. Use these steps to access the H.323 Dynamic Coder parameter:
1) Select Configure from the main menu.
2) Select Port, type the appropriate port number and press enter.
3) Type voice and press enter.
Figure 4-8 shows an example of the Port Configuration Menu and the H.323
Dynamic Coder parameter.

Description:
Specifies whether or not advertising is used to negotiate with a
remote H.323 device.
• Enabled: The H.323 interface advertises all of the coders
supported on this device. The H.323 interface dynamically
negotiates, with the remote H.323 device, for a coder,
bundle format, and VAD setting. If necessary, this port is
re-configured to match the negotiated settings.
• Disabled: The H.323 interface advertises only the current
configuration (compression rate, bundle format, and VAD
setting). Negotiations do not take place. If the remote H.323
terminal cannot match this ports configuration, the call is
cleared.
For more information, refer to the Vanguard Voice Manual (Part Number T0104-05).

Vanguard 7300 Port Configuration
Dynamic Modem
Dynamic Modem is a new configuration parameter created to Enable or Disable DSP
dynamically, switching to codec G.711 after a high speed or fax modem is detected.
An example of various high speed modems (which utilizes phase reversal in the
answer tone) are the V.32, V.34 and V.90.
Warning
The Dynamic Modem parameter is only supported on Texas Instruments (TI) DSP,
this includes:
• Vanguard 6560 - HDSM
• Vanguard 6400 Series - T1/E1 with DSP
• Vanguard 7300 Series - T1/E1 with DSP
• Vanguard Quad FXS/FXO cards
The enabling and disabling of the dynamic switching to G.711, after modem
detection, is configured at the voice port.
Note
The Dynamic Modem parameter is only effective when the H.323 Dynamic
Coder configuration parameter is enabled.
Accessing and
Configuring
Dynamic Modem
Dynamic Modem introduces one new parameter under the Port Configuration menu.
Use these steps to access the Dynamic Modem parameter:
1) Select Configure from the main menu.
2) Select Port, type the appropriate port number and press enter.
3) Type voice and press enter.

Parameter
This is a description of the Dynamic Modem parameter:
Dynamic Modem
Range:
Enabled, Disabled
Default:
Disabled
Description:
Enable or Disable the feature of the dynamic switching to G.711
after modem detection.
If Enabled, the DSP which detects the modem tone switches to
codec G.711 regardless of the codec configured.
Warning
For digital interfaces the timing must be traceable back to the same clock source and/
or a Stratum 1 clock. If this is not true frame slips will occur causing the modem
traffic to loose some data. However, if the modem is using some type of error
correction and/or the modem is transporting a protocol that has error correction
(such as PPP) the clock slips will have less impact.
Warning
Modem traffic over a QUAD FXS or FXO will not run error free. The QUAD FXS
and FXO run from an internal oscillator. There is no clock synchronization between
the QUAD FXS or FXO and any other voice interface. The amount of errors and the
error rate is dependent on how close the internal oscillator is and cannot be
determined in advance. However, if the modem is using some type of error
correction and/or the modem is transporting a protocol that has error correction
(such as PPP) the errors will have less impact.

Description
The H.323 Options parameters allows you to specify H.323
Version 2 features that allows for:
• DISABLE_FAST_START - The Vanguard H.323 Version 2
implementation supports FAST START or FAST CONNECT
and automatically opens audio channels. If the H.323 Options
parameter is configured for DISABLE_FAST_START, FAST
START is not used.
• DISABLE_H245_TUNNELING - The Vanguard H.323
Version 2 implementation automatically enables tunnelling of
H.245 messages over a H.225 TCP session. If H.323 Options
parameter is configured for DISABLE_H245_TUNNELING,
H.245 messages are not tunnelled over the H.225 TCP
session. Instead a separate TCP session is used for H.245
messages.
• BLOCK_SETUP_ACK - This prevents the Q.931 SETUP
ACK message from being transmitted.
• BLOCK_PROGRESS - This prevents the Q.931 PROGRESS
Message from being transmitted.
• PREPEND_CALLING_TO_CALLED - This function copies
the calling number to beginning of the called number.
• BLOCK_ALERTING - This function prevents the Q.931
ALERTING Message from being transmitted.

Board Management
Board Management
Introduction
Board management is limited to board level actions, this includes resetting the
hardware, testing the hardware, downloading any necessary software to the board,
downloading any additional configuration information, activating and deactivating
the board. The board management function supports recovery of T1-E1 boards on
the 7300 platform.
The purpose of the recovery mechanism is to allow for a method of recovery of
faults which might occur in the T1/E1 card. This card is heavily populated by active
devices and supports a lot of channels. The recovery mechanism detects faults and
takes action to protect the node and its resource and allow other boards that are not
involved in the fault to continue operation.
Hot swap of the T1-E1 card is specifically excluded as a functional requirement in
this version of board recovery. The functional requirements exclude removing a
hardware faulty T1-E1 board and inserting a equivalent working board in its place
while the node is functioning and expecting the board to be activated.
Once recovery is triggered, the recovery function reloads the T1/E1 board and takes
whatever necessary steps needed to complete the process of bringing the failed card
on line.
The recovery preserves the topology of the operational (running) configuration.
Applications which use the failed resources are informed that the resource is
deactivated, but they are not necessarily deleted. These instances are available to
report the deactivate condition. Reactivation after recovery brings the system on line
as it was before the failure. The process does not do any booting actions such as
reading CMEM.
Configuration
Board management has configuration. In the CTP the configuration is controlled by
a menu entry in the Configuration Menu: Configure->Board Management. The
same parameters are available for viewing in the Examine and List menus. The
Board Management configuration is specified in the following table:
Keepalive Timeout
4-22
Range
1 to 20
Default
5
Description
This is the time between the sending of keepalive/heartbeat
messages. A shorter timeout allows a more responsive recovery to
occur, but with a higher processing overhead to the node. The
parameter is in tenth of seconds
Operating Your Vanguard 7300
Board Management
Keepalive Tries
Range
0-3
Default
2
Description
This is the number of consecutive keepalive failures that cause the
trigger of a recovery procedure. A keepalive failure is counted
when a keepalive timeout occurs and no response to the previous
keepalive enquiry has been received. A lower tries count allows a
more sensitive detection of failure, but with a higher chance of
false trigger in high load conditions. A value of 0 disables the
triggering of recovery procedures.
Failure Threshold Time
Range
1 to 1440
Default
15
Description
This is the interval of time over which the a record of the number
of failures have been performed by the board management system.
This time is measured in minutes.
Failure Threshold Count
Range
1 to 10
Default
2
Description
When a recovery procedure is triggered, board management
checks to see if the number of failures for the board over the last
Failure Threshold Time minutes has reached this number. If the
number of failures reaches this number, the board management
function deactivates the board without doing the recovery
procedure.
History Limit
Range
20
Default

Description
This is the total number of events related to boards that the Board
Management Module stores. The number of events exceeding the
oldest record is removed to make room for the most recent event.

Removing a
CompactPCI Card
or Transition
Module
Use the procedure in this table to remove your Vanguard 7300 cards and rear
transition modules from the chassis. For your personal safety, be sure to review all of
the preceding safety warnings and cautions before you begin to replace any
Vanguard 7300 component.
Note
To meet FCC regulations and for thermal considerations, chassis slot covers
always should be kept on empty chassis slots.
Step
Action
1
To replace a non-hot-swappable component, always power down the
Vanguard 7300. Hot-swappable components can be swapped with like
cards while the unit is powered up, but data integrity is not guaranteed.
2
Remove all port cables. Use a grounded wrist strap, static-dissipating work
surfaces, and anti-static bags for component storage.
3
Unscrew each ejector lever’s captive screw. (See Figure 5-3.)
4
Press the two component ejector levers outward at the same time to release
the component, as shown in Figure 5-3. (If the card is equipped with ejector
locks, depress to unlock the ejectors.)

General Card Replacement Guidelines
Inserting a
CompactPCI Card
or Transition
Module
Whether you are replacing an existing CompactPCI component or adding a new
component to your Vanguard 7300, care must be taken when inserting a component’s
midplane socket (female) connectors over the rows of male pin connectors on the
CompactPCI midplane. Before replacing or adding a Vanguard 7300 card or
transition module, be sure to familiarize yourself with CompactPCI midplane chassis
design. Compact PCI card and transition module descriptions and connector
characteristics are illustrated in the “Vanguard 7300 Platform Version 1” section in
Chapter 1.
The pin connectors that line the front and rear of the CompactPCI midplane must not
be damaged; a single bent pin can prevent a card from seating properly and could
even disable an entire chassis. Although Vanguard 7300 chassis are equipped with
card guides and other alignment mechanisms to minimize the possibility of damage,
inserting components requires careful handling.
Before You Begin... Use the procedure in this table to insert cards and rear transition modules into a
Vanguard 7300 chassis:
• For your personal safety, be sure to review all of the preceding safety
warnings and cautions before you begin to replace any Vanguard 7300
component
• Be sure to use a grounded wrist strap, static-dissipating work surfaces, and
anti-static bags for component storage
• Unscrew and remove the slot cover from the chassis slot. Slot covers should
be stored for reuse in case the card is removed in the future
Step
Action
1
Align the card with the card guides in the chassis slot. Be sure both ejection
levers are in the open position. (Refer to Figure 5-4.)
2
Insert the card into the card guides and slide the card into the chassis until
you feel resistance (approximately 1/4 inch short of full insertion). Use
even pressure and do not rock or force the card to insert it.
3
Simultaneously press both ejection levers inwardly toward the center of the
card until the levers lock into their slots. The front panel should be flush
with the adjacent cards and/or slot covers.
4
Tighten the captive screws on the card or transition module to secure it.
5
Install port cables according to the cabling directions for the specific card
or transition module according to instructions further on in this chapter.

Product Declarations and Regulatory Information
Industry Canada
The following information includes the Industry Canada statement regarding ISDN
and T1 equipment use.
The Industry Canada label identifies certified equipment. This certification means
that the equipment meets certain telecommunications network protective,
operational, and safety requirements. The Department does not guarantee the
equipment will operate to the user’s satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be
connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment
must also be installed using an acceptable method of connection. In some cases, the
company’s inside wiring associated with a single line individual service might be
extended by means of a certified connector assembly (telephone extension cord).
The customer should be aware that compliance with the above conditions might not
prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian
maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by
the user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, could give the
telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of
the power utility, telephone lines, and internal metallic water pipe system, if present,
are connected together. This precaution can be particularly important in rural areas.
Caution
Users must not attempt to make such connection themselves, but must contact the
appropriate electric inspection authority, or electrician, as appropriate.
Les utilisateurs ne doivent pas établir de telles connexions eux-mêmes. Ils doivent
contacter une personne compétente ou un électricien.
Benutzer sollten nicht versuchen, diese Verbindung selbst herzustellen, sondern
dazu die zuständige Aufsichtsbehörde für Elektroinstallationen bzw. einen
Elektroinstallateur kontaktieren.
