2.4
Network Concept
The IP network concept of the Acrobat Digital Wireless Intercom System is designed for the separation into three
logical networks:
1. IP (Infrastructure) network
In this network segment are all the existing infrastructure components (default Gateways, DHCP servers, Time
server,...) as well as the Acrobat CC located. This network is used for the connection of the Acrobat CC to the IP
infrastructure of the company LAN.
The factory-default network address is 192.168.2.0 with a netmask of 255.255.255.0.
The preconfigured IP address of the Acrobat CC in this network is 192.168.2.1.
2. DECT network
In this network segment are all Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antennas and the Acrobat CC Cell Controller located. This
network is solely used for the communication between the Cell Antennas and the Cell Controller.
The preconfigured network address of the Acrobat CC-8 is 192.168.11.100.
The preconfigured network address of the Acrobat CC-60 / CC-120 is 192.168.12.100.
The fixed netmask of Acrobat CC-8 / CC-60 / CC-120 is 255.255.0.0.
3. Cell Antennas internal networks
For internal communication between the different hardware components of the Cell Antennas there are two
further networks configured.
Keep in mind, that these addresses may not be used for the IP network and the DECT network.
192.168.123.x :
Internal network of the CA-6 for DECT functionality.
169.254.222.x.
Internal network of the CA-6 between the two main processors CSP (.1) and MSP (.2).
All Cell Antennas as well as the Cell Controller must be located inside the same network segment
and therefore MUST NOT be separated by layer 3 routing devices. Only Layer 2 switches are
supported between the Cell Antennas and the Cell Controller.
2.5
Overview of reserved networks
Host IP 192.168.1.1/24 is used for factory default of Cell Antennas CA-6.
Host IP 192.168.2.1/24 is used for factory default of Cell Controller CC.
IP network 192.168.123.0/24 for internal DECT communication at CA-6.
IP network 169.254.222.0/24 for internal communication at CA-6.

2.6
Synchronization via Ethernet (acc. IEEE1588)
Using synchronization via Ethernet, great demands are made on the Ethernet characteristics like symmetry,
packet loss, delay, jitter (variance of delay), … Therefore special requirements regarding the Ethernet components
(especially the Ethernet switches used) have to be considered. Exceeding of limits (especially of jitter) will lead to
loss of synchronization, which will finally lead to a resynchronization process. During this process the belonging
Cell Antennas are unable to establish an audio connection.
Synchronization topology
The Synchronization according Ethernet solely uses a star shaped topology. Maximally one Cell Antenna serves a
Synchronization Master (Sync Master), all other Cell Antennas which participate at the synchronization serve as
Synchronization Slaves (Sync Slave).
Resynchronization
The DECT functionality of all CA-6, which are configured as IEEE1588 Sync Slaves, depends on the availability of the
IEEE1588 Sync Master. If the Sync Master is not functional (e. g not Online due to Ethernet problems), the DECT
functionality of all IEEE1588 sync slave CA-6 will go down. During this time no audio connections are possible.
General requirements on the Ethernet system
The usage of a dedicated VLAN at the Cell Controller for Infrastructure and DECT network is mandatory. The CoS
value of the DECT VLAN must be assigned to the highest priority in the network switch. All participating switches
have to be configured in a way that the VLAN of the DECT network has to be assigned the highest priority.
Further details regarding Ethernet Synchronization according IEEE1588 may be found in chapter “6.2 Ethernet
Synchronization (acc. IEEE1588)” on page 93.
Only premium class switches, which fulfill the requirements regarding Ethernet synchronization according
IEEE1588, are supported. Following switches are already tested and can be used:
•
24-port PoE Layer2 switch from D-Link; e.g. - DES-1228P, DES-3028P, DGS-1224TP
•
24-port PoE Layer2 switch from Hewlett Packard (HP ProCurve Series), e.g. - 2626-PWR, 2650-PWR
•
Enterasys Switch B3G124 (1Gbit)
•
Enterasys Switch B5G124
•
Cisco Catalyst 3560
•
Cisco Catalyst 2960-48PST-L (48 PoE ports)
•
Cisco Small Business Pro ESW 500 (all switch ports used for CA-6 were configured as "others")
•
Cisco SG 300-28P
•
Cisco SG 500-28P
Riedel gained unsuccessful experience with the following switch model:
•
Netgear FS1008
•
Allnet
If the customer use Layer3 switches, the L3 function of the relevant switch ports have to be
deactivated.
A maximum number of three cascaded Ethernet switches are supported between the Sync Master (SM) and a
Sync Slave (SS) CA-6. Please notice that the CC-8 already contains one switch behind the PoE ports. Also this switch
counts as a hop, if used.
The graphics on the next pages illustrate different network setups limited by the three hops rule.

Partition concept of Cell Antenna and Cell Controller
To guarantee a functional system at any time, two bootable systems are implemented at the Cell Controller and
the Cell Antenna.
A current system and the fallback system. Therefore the Cell Antenna and Cell Controller have two different
systems partitions: System 1 and System 2.
Both system partitions can hold their own configuration (although it is copied from one partition to the other
during a firmware update).
A factory reset is always applied to the current system partition. It does not affect the settings of the other
partition.
The partitions of CC and CA-6 have to be synchronized to the same value (1 or 2).

Factory reset of Cell Antenna
A Factory Reset can be performed by a special "power sequencing" cycle, which is used to reset the Cell Antenna
to its default configuration. The factory reset is applied by the following procedure:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Power on the board (see note)
Wait about 5 seconds (3s < wait < 7s) after the first flash of the LED
Power off the board
Repeat steps 1. – 3. three (3) times
Boot the Cell Antenna
If the factory reset was successful, this is indicated by fast red flashing of both LEDs.
If you provide power to the board by connecting the Ethernet cable using a PoE Switch, power may
NOT be provided immediately. Due to the stages of powering up a PoE link defined in 802.3af it
may take up to some seconds until the power is delivered from the switch to the PoE port. Take a
look at the LEDs or the switch status LEDs to see at which time the power is available. After this
procedure, the default configuration parameters will be set.
The factory reset is applied to the currently active partition. It does not affect the settings of the
other partition.

4 Quick Start Cell Controller (Example CC-8)
The quick start chapter describes the initial operation of the Acrobat Digital Wireless Intercom system for a first
functional test including the necessary configuration.
The "Quick Start" assumes the availability of:
•
one Acrobat CC-8 Cell Controller,
•
two Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antennas,
•
two Acrobat WB-2 Wireless Beltpacks
•
a Maintenance PC (Windows XP based) with an administration account (if the ip configuration has to be
adapted) and
•
•
for each device connected a CAT.5 1:1 cable or 1 CAT.5 Cross-Over cable
a license file (voip-capi.lic) for the Acrobat Digital Wireless Intercom system which includes a unique DECT
SystemId (SystemAri) and the DECT frequency setting. Copy this file to the maintenance PC.
•
optionally, if using more components, a functional PoE network switch, (alternatively a standard switch and
Power injectors).
Please read the corresponding chapter in the detailed manual parts if you need further information regarding any
step of the "Quick Start".
The following conditions apply for the Quick Start:
4.1
•
For the quick start it is assumed that no VLAN functionality is needed.
•
No special DECT functionality is configured (Antenna diversity,...).
•
It is assumed that a CC-8 - which is resetted to factory defaults - is used.

Prepare and connect hardware
If you plan to connect more components via Ethernet, you need a separate Ethernet switch with the needed
number of ports to connect the further components to the Acrobat CC-8 system as well as the maintenance PC (a
maximum of 4 Cell Antennas may be connected directly to the PoE ports of the Acrobat CC-8).
If the Cell Antennas should be attached to the separate switch, the ports for the CA-6 need Power over Ethernet
(PoE) functionality (Class 2) since the Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antennas have no separate Power connector. Alternatively
you may use a PoE Power injector between a standard switch port and the Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antenna.
•
Check, if the Ethernet Connector "ETH1" of the Acrobat CC-8 is directly connected to the port "AUX1". If not,
connect the two ports using a standard Ethernet CAT.5 1:1 cable.
•
Check, if the Ethernet Connector "ETH2" of the Acrobat CC-8 is directly connected to the port "AUX2". If not,
connect the two ports using a standard Ethernet CAT.5 1:1 cable.
•
Optionally if using more components. Connect the Ethernet switch using a standard Ethernet CAT.5 cable
with the Ethernet Connector "ETH0" of the Acrobat CC-8. This connection is called the uplink.
•
•
Connect mains power to the Acrobat CC-8 Cell Controller.
Connect the two Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antennas to the PoE ports of the CC-8.
Therefore open the enclosure at the bottom front side of the CA-6 and plug in the Ethernet cable (CAT.5 1:1)
into the RJ45 plug and connect the other side of the Ethernet cable into a PoE port.
•
Connect the two Acrobat WB-2 Wireless Beltpacks to the PoE ports of the CC-8.
Therefore plug in the Ethernet cable (CAT.5 1:1) into the RJ45 plug at the bottom side of the Beltpack and
connect the other side of the Ethernet cable into a PoE port.
•
If the Beltpacks are not equipped with the battery now or if the battery is very low you have to insert a fully
charged Acrobat RB-2300 rechargeable Battery into the housing of the Acrobat WB-2 Wireless Beltpacks.
Power on the Beltpack using the Power switch at the bottom side.
•
Wait about 1 minute until the LED state of the CA-6 Antenna changes to blinking green / red.
•
If the Acrobat CC-8 is not started now (see Power LED at the front side), start the CC-8 by reattaching mains
power or by using the (covered) Reset button right of the LEDs at the front.
•
Meanwhile you may connect the maintenance PC to the ETH0 port via a cross-over ethernet cable.
The devices MUST NOT be separated by layer 3 Routing devices. Only separation via Layer 2
switches is supported.

4.4
Maintenance PC
The Acrobat CC-8 is accessible via its factory default IP address 192.168.2.1. To access the web configuration
interface you have to configure an IP address in the network 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0, e.g. 192.168.2.101 on
your maintenance PC.
4.5
Cell Controller initial access
The Acrobat CC-8 is accessible via its factory default IP address 192.168.2.1. If the IP address 192.168.2.1 is used
in your network, you first have to directly connect the maintenance PC and the Cell Controller via Ethernet. This
may be done with a direct Ethernet connection where only the Maintenance PC and the Cell Controller is
connected (e.g. the built-in Ethernet switch of the Acrobat CC-8).
Test via ping, if the Acrobat CC-8 is answering the ping requests at the IP address (ping 192.168.2.1). If not, check
all cabling, switch settings, (e.g. VLAN configuration). Ensure that the configured local IP of the maintenance PC
address is up (e.g. ping 192.168.2.101). If you don’t get replies consider to configure the IP address of the Acrobat
CC-8 via the local Linux console.
Start the Web browser (Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer) at the Maintenance PC.
Access the WBM (Web based management) at the following URL: http://192.168.2.1

4.6
IP (Infrastructure) network
Changing the configuration of the IP (Infrastructure) Network settings requires a reboot of the Acrobat CC-8 for
the changes to get active. Therefore, the settings are configured before the other Acrobat system components
(Cell Antennas and Wireless Beltpacks) are configured at the designated network segment.
To allow direct IP communication between the Acrobat CC-8 and IP infrastructure devices (Maintenance PC, NTP
server,...) all these devices have to be located in the same IP network. Therefore it is necessary to adapt the IP
address of the Acrobat CC-8 to the network of the IP (Infrastructure). You need at least one unused IP address of
the IP Infrastructure network, which has to be configured at the Acrobat CC-8.
If the network of 192.168.2.1/255.255.255.0 is not already used in the IP infrastructure network, you
may use this default network.
Select the configuration page "Network/Gateways".
Change the configuration in the bottom frame to the designated values of the Acrobat CC-8.
Figure 21: configuration page "Network/Gateways"
Change the following values according your needs:
IP Address
Here you have to configure the IP address at which the Acrobat CC-8 should be accessible inside the IP
(Infrastructure) Network. The default IP address is 192.168.2.1.

If you need routing to another network (e.g. access from maintenance PC to the IP (Infrastructure) Network, you
can configure the corresponding values either by setting the "Default Gateway" or by adding a route to a special
"Network destination". If using the "Network destination" method, you have to configure the fields "Network
destination", "Network mask" and "Gateway" and additionally you have to add a route at the maintenance PC.
The Default gateway is functional only for networks outside 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0 (since
192.168.x.y. is a reserved local network for the Acrobat Cell Antennas). To overcome this situation,
one manual route to a 192.168.x.y network may be configured.
To submit your changes, click the [Apply] button at the bottom right corner of the WBM. This may result in some
warnings and / or errors, but these are fixed with the further configuration steps.

Devices/DECT network
Changing the configuration of the DECT Network settings requires a reboot of the Acrobat CC-8 for the changes to
get active. Therefore, the settings are configured before the other Acrobat system components (Cell Antennas and
Wireless Beltpacks) are configured at the designated network segment.
To allow direct IP communication between the Acrobat CC-8 and the DECT devices (Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antennas
and Acrobat WB-2 Wireless Beltpack (when attached to the Ethernet), all these devices have to be located in the
same IP network. You need at least one unused IP address of the IP Infrastructure network, which has to be
configured at the Acrobat CC-8.
If the network of 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 is not already used in the IP infrastructure network, you may use this
default network.
Select the configuration page "Devices".
Figure 22: configuration page "Devices"
Change the configuration in the bottom frame to the designated values of the Acrobat CC-8.
Server IP
This field contains the IP address of the Acrobat CC-8 (the IWU) in the DECT network. It is used for communication
between all Cell Antennas and the Cell Controller. The factory default IP address is 192.168.11.100.
SystemAri
This field displays the System ARI ("DECT ID") which has to be unique at each DECT system. The SystemAri is
included in a license file. This license file is loaded in one of the next steps.

User Manual Acrobat CC-8 / CC-60 / CC-120 V4.2
IWU as GW
Activate this option to use the Acrobat CC-8 as a router to the Cell Antennas.
Using the option "IWU as GW" enables the routing (IP forwarding) between the IP (Infrastructure)
Network and the DECT Network. This ensures access to the network in which the Cell Antennas are
located, without having an IP address (in the DECT network) configured at the maintenance PC.
Additionally you have to add a route at the maintenance PC.
Apply the changes by clicking the [Apply] button at the bottom section.

System1 and System2 partitions
To guarantee a functional Acrobat system at any time, two bootable systems are present on the Cell Controller.
The current (active) system and the fallback (non active) system.
Therefore the Cell Controller has two different systems partitions: System 1 and System 2.
Since the CA-6 also has two bootable systems, these "partitions" are "synchronized". Booting the Cell Controller
into partition "Version System 1" will also automatically boot the CA-6 into partition "Version System 1" and viceversa.
Version System x:
Displays information about Software Version, Software Date and the MAC address.
Active system
The radio buttons below "Active system" indicate which of the both System partitions is the currently ACTIVE
System partition. In the example of the screenshot above, System 1 is the active partition.
5.2.2.1
[System Update]
Central firmware update
Updating the system software is done using the mechanism central firmware update, which consists of two
integrated steps which run automatically after initiating the System Update.
•
Updating the firmware of the Acrobat CC and also
•
Updating the firmware of all CA-6.
Keep in mind that the Audioboard and the WB-2 have to be updated manually. The central firmware update
functionality is available for a CC-8 which is already running version 3.30.2.
If you update the system software, the Update is always applied to the NON-active system.
Furthermore, the current configuration of the active system will be applied to the NON-active system.
54
User Manual Acrobat CC-8 / CC-60 / CC-120 V4.2
Partition synchronization
If an update is started if Partition 1 of the Acrobat CC is the active partition, the Update will be applied to nonactive partition 2 in this case. The update mechanism also starts the updates for all activated CA-6 into the same
Partition 2. If one or several CA-6 have a "wrong" active partition (the active partition fifers from the active
partition of the Acrobat CC), a message box will inform about that. In this case, no update is applied to these CA-6
and therefore they "stay" in their current partition.
After the update is finished, the Acrobat CC has to be rebooted with the other partition marked as Boot system.
All active CA-6 will also be rebooted automatically and switch their partition to the new active partition number if
necessary.
If later the partition of the Acrobat CC will be changed (e.g. after an update), all CA-6 will also switch their partition.
This ensures a reliable fallback scenario (e.g. to the last version) for the whole installation (CC and CA-6).
To synchronize the CC-8 and all CA-6, simply apply a System update twice. This will force all
components into the same partition.
Downgrade
A downgrade is not fully supported. In need of a downgrade, a factory reset is applied automatically. Please refer
to the delivered release notes of the new version for details of the update process.
Update instructions
1. Please create a backup of the old configuration (Page Registration - [Backup Config].
2. Ensure that you have a firmware file of the old version available (in case of a necessary downgrade).
3. Start with the update for the Acrobat CC. After the process has finished check at page Devices-About- PartInfo1
and PartInfo2 if all CA-6 already are updated successfully. Wait until all CA-6 are updated correctly (Version
displayed in PartInfo1 resp. PartInfo2 should be unequal "n/a").
4. Reboot the CC with the other (inactive) partition where the update has been applied to. Therefore select page
Administration.
Toggle the Radio Button "Boot System" from the partition which was marked active (see radio button "Active
System") to the opposite partition.
[Apply] the change and select [Reboot Board] to reboot the whole Acrobat CC system.
5. Apply the update to all other devices (Audioboard and WB-2) and reboot them.
6. Restart the services at the Acrobat CC.

All changes will be activated after a reboot of the Acrobat CC.
Figure 52: Network Configuration
IP settings for the Cell Controller
IP Address
Here you have to configure the IP address at which the Acrobat CC-8 should be accessible inside the IP
(Infrastructure) Network. This is also the IP address at which the Acrobat CC-8 is accessible via WBM.
Network Mask
Enter the corresponding netmask for the IP address as configured above. (Default for Class C networks:
255.255.255.0).
Default Gateway
If all other routing is done via a default gateway, it can be configured here. Alternatively, a dedicated route may be
configured using the settings "Network destination", "Network Mask" and "Gateway" as described below.
The routing functionality is without function for Software Version 3.30.2.
The Default gateway is functional only for networks outside 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0. (Since
192.168.0.0/16 is a reserved local network for DECT Cell Antennas).
All devices (Acrobat CC Cell Controller, Acrobat CA-6 Cell Antennas and Acrobat WB-2 Wireless
Beltpacks) must be located inside the same network segment and therefore MUST NOT be
separated by layer 3 Routing devices. Only Layer 2 switches are supported between the devices.
Switch Ports
If this option is disabled, all Ethernet ports of the CC (ETH0, ETH1 and ETH2 of CC-8, Gb1 and Gb2 of CC-60/CC120) are configured to build a Layer2 bridge. This means, the IP addresses of the Infrastructure network and the
DECT network are not bound to a specific Ethernet port, instead they are bound to all ports. This setup doesn't
support VLANs.
If this option is enabled, the Ethernet ports of the CC (ETH0, ETH1 and ETH2 of CC-8, Gb1 and Gb2 of CC-60/CC120) are configured separately as switch ports. This means, the IP address of the Infrastructure network is
bound to a specific Ethernet port and the IP address of the DECT network is bound to another Ethernet port. This
setup supports VLANs.

Network Destination
Alternatively to a default gateway, a dedicated route to another network may be configured here (e.g. using a
Time server or access to a maintenance network, ...). In the following three fields, you have to configure the
routing information to the other IP network.
Network destination
The destination address for the other IP network (e.g. 192.52.109.0).
Network Mask
The corresponding network mask for the other Network destination. (e.g. 255.255.255.0).
Gateway
The IP address of the gateway inside the IP (Infrastructure) network which handles the routing to the other
network.
HTTPS Enable
Determines, if https (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer) should be used for WBM
communication between the browser and the Cell Controller. Using https encrypts the communication between
these devices. It is suggested to use https mode.
Depending on the http access mode you have to use http:// or https:// mode at the browser.
HTTPS Enabled = [ ]
HTTPS Enabled = [X]
Example: https://192.168.2.1
use http://{Server IP of IP (Infrastructure) Network}
use https://{Server IP of IP (Infrastructure) Network}
Tos Value
With the "TOS Value" you can configure the prioritization of the IP packets via TCP/IP (Layer3 ) according to DSCP.
It is only used for the IP DSCP field for VoIP Signalling (SIP) and VoIP data (RTP) packets towards the PBX (IP
network). Other IP packets e.g
•
WBM or SSH towards the IP network or
•
packets between Cell Antennas and Cell Controller (DECT Network)
are NOT tagged with configured the DSCP value. (Default = "0", i.e. no prioritization).
Using the dropdown you may select one of the pre-configured ToS values.
Cos Value
With the "CoS Value" (decimal) you can configure the prioritization of the ethernet packets via ethernet (Layer2)
according to 802.1p. (Default = "0", i.e. no prioritization).
Using the dropdown you may select one of the pre-configured CoS values.
58
User Manual Acrobat CC-8 / CC-60 / CC-120 V4.2
VLAN Id
The corresponding VLAN Id (according IEEE 802.1q) is configured here. If VLANs are used (value unequal to "0"),
the switch port connected with the Acrobat CC has to be configured to tag the Ethernet frames.
VLAN configuration is activated, if the VLAN Id is configured to a valid VLAN Id unequal to 0.
If VLAN is activated, the Cell Controller sends and expects to receive tagged Ethernet packets. Therefore the
switch port to which the CC is connected to, has to be configured to tag the Ethernet frames with the VLAN Ids.
Tagging has to be established for the VLAN Id of the IP (Infrastructure) network (this VLAN Id) AND for the
VLAN Id of the DECT network.
All Ethernet frames towards the IP (Infrastructure) network between the CC and the Ethernet switch are
tagged with the configured VLAN Id configured for the Infrastructure network (option "VLAN Id" at page
Network/Gateways - this option).
All Ethernet frames towards the DECT network between the Cell Controller and the Ethernet switch are tagged
with the configured VLAN Id configured for the DECT network (option "VLAN Id" at page DECT).
Please take account of the correlating VLAN configuration of the DECT network at chapter "5.5.7.2 General
configuration options" on page 72.
Time Server IP
Exact time information may be derived from a NTP (or SNTP) time server. The IP address of the Time Server is
configured here.
If a time server is not configured correctly and cannot be contacted, the local time of the PC mainboard of the
Acrobat CC will be used.
Timezone
If using a Time Server, the Timezone has to be configured according the physical location of the Acrobat Digital
Wireless Intercom system (country). Since NTP is always using UTC time, the local time has to be calculated against
the time zone information to get correct current Local time.
Time Server Enable
Enables the usage of the Time Server.
SNMP Server IP
Using this option, an IP address of a SNMP server may be configured here to which SNMP traps are being send.
For details refer to chapter "6.1.2 SNMP" on page 89.

This option is needed for special testing option used with US frequencies. The default setting is disabled. Leave
this option disabled.
Timeslot Parity
This value determines, if the corresponding Beltpack is working with odd or even DECT timeslots.
To achieve good efficiency of the available DECT timeslots, configure half of the configured Beltpacks to use even
timeslots, the other half to use odd timeslots.
Regardless of this setting (even or odd), all WB-2 are able to communicate among each other if they are assigned
to the same partyline.
MADI Channel No (CC-60/CC-120)
This field will be used to assign a MADI Channel to the Beltpacks. Valid values are "0" (no fixed assignment) and 1
… 120 for a fixed mapping. It is possible to assign a MADI channel to multiple Beltpacks.
Timeout (CC-60/CC-120)
This Beltpack specific setting determines the Timeout (in minutes) for a Beltpack which DIP SW 4 is set to ON. If
such a WB-2 channel is disconnected for different reasons (e.g. WB-2 was switched OFF, out of DECT area, …) the
timer will be started at the Cell Controller.
If the channel is re-connected or WB-2 is switched ON before the timeout has expired and if the Channel is
ChanAvailable, than the MADI channel will be used automatically for this connection.
If the channel is re-connected or WB-2 is switched ON after the timeout has expired, than the no MADI channel
will be used automatically for this connection. The user has to select a MADI channel using the “MADIChan”
service menu.
If the value is configured to "0", the timeout is configured infinite. In this case the channel reservation will not be
released.
Valid values are 0 … 10080 minutes (10080 minutes = 1 week).
After start of the system services, all Timeouts will be set to expired.
This value may be changed only if the system services are stopped.

Antenna.
"Sync" (Default value: "1588 slave")
Here you can configure the type of synchronization of the Cell Antenna (CA-6) with a dropdown box.
Synchronization is necessary for the seamless handover between Cell Antennas. You can only use
synchronization over Ethernet according IEEE1588.
You can choose one of the following menu items in the dropdown box:
"No"
No synchronization of the Cell Antenna. This may be configured if no "seamless handover" is needed or if this Cell
Antenna serves as the "Sync Master" which is the topmost synchronization source.
"1588 master"
Synchronization of activated Cell Antennas via Ethernet (according IEEE1588). Only one CA-6 may be configured as
"1588 master".
This method occupies – depending on the Beacon configuration – one or more available timeslots (which cannot
be used for audio connections), but it allows the seamless handover between the radio areas of synchronized Cell
Antennas.
The Cell Antenna to be synchronized at must be an activated Cell Antenna at the Cell Controller.
"1588 slave"
Synchronization of activated Cell Antennas via Ethernet (according IEEE1588). If a "1588 master" is configure, all
other CA-6 have to be configured as "1588 slave".
This method occupies – depending on the Beacon configuration – one or more available timeslots (which cannot
be used for audio connections), but it allows the seamless handover between the radio areas of synchronized Cell
Antennas.
The Cell Antenna to be synchronized at must be activated as "1588 master".
The DECT functionality of all CA-6 which are configured as IEEE1588 sync slaves depends on the
availability of the IEEE1588 sync master. If the sync master is not functional (e.g not Online because
of Ethernet problems …), the DECT functionality of all IEEE1588 sync slave Cell Antennas will go
down.
Further information regarding the Synchronization may be found in the chapter "6.2 Ethernet Synchronization

Figure 61: Devices - Debug
On the sub page "Debug" various logging and debugging functions may be activated for the individual Cell
Antennas. Based on these functions potential problems in the DECT section may be isolated. For the analysis of
the Log files profound knowledge of the DECT technologies is essential. Therefore debugging is intended primarily
for our support staff.
Please note that depending on the activated Logging configuration big amounts of data may be
produced which may have negative influence on the performance of the Cell Controller Software
and the System. Therefore you should only activate Logging functions when requested by a support
engineer.
The columns of the configuration page have the following meaning:
The columns "Enabled" and "Name" are repeated on all sub pages. A description of these can be
found in chapter "5.5.1 Configuration Page "Devices - Base" on page 63.)
Debug Disable (Default value: Deactivated)
When activating this entry, the Logging functionality for the active DECT module is disabled, independent of the
configured Debug level.

Deleting, scanning and syncing
Figure 62: Deleting, scanning and syncing
By selecting a device and clicking on [Delete Module], the selected device entry is deleted.
[Scan]
The button [Scan] has read functionality. It initiates a Seek or Scan of the network for all attached devices using
an IP broadcast mechanism.
All devices are answering (if they are attached to the Ethernet) and sending their current configuration
information (mainly its own IP address, the IP address and listen port of the Cell Controller and its name) to the CC
where it is displayed. For newly scanned devices which no configuration (according the MAC address) is assigned,
a new entry is automatically added (If the option "No new modules on scan is deactivated").
Depending on the VLAN configuration of IP Infrastructure and IP Dect network, the devices are only found if they
are attached to the appropriate network segment. For details refer to option "VLAN Id" of the IP (Infrastructure
network) at chapter "5.3.2 Network configuration" on page 57 and of the DECT network at chapter "5.5.7.2
General configuration options" on page 72.
If communication specific options of a device are changed at the CC, a [Sync] process has to be
established. Otherwise the formerly active IP address of the CA-6 will be still displayed.
If newly added devices are not found using [SCAN], repeat the [SCAN] process with stopped system services and
ensure that the option "No new modules on scan" is deactivated. Otherwise take note of the hints described at
chapter 7.1.1 Cell Antenna is not found using "Scan" on page 95.

General configuration options
Server Ip
This field contains the IP address of the Acrobat Cell Controller (the IWU) inside the DECT network. It is used by
the devices as the destination ip address for ip packets.
The factory default Ip address is 192.168.2.1, which may not be saved inside the configuration of the CC.
The configured IP address may not be located inside the network of the configure IP (Infrastructure)
Ip address.
Listen Port
This field defines the IP port on which the communication between the Acrobat Cell Controller and the devices is
established. The default value is 10500.
IWU as GW
This option is only intended to access the devices in the DECT network if when different VLANS and/or VPNs are
configured. It activates the routing functionality between the IP (Infrastructure) Network and the DECT
network.
Use this option only in case where other IP access is not available, e.g.
•
SSH access to Cell Antenna
•
Access to WBM of Cell Antenna
•
Firmware update of Cell Antenna
Therefore, you have to add a route at the maintenance PC (Windows XP):
Example:
IP of Cell Controller is 192.52.109.83, IP-DECT network is 192.168.201.0/255.255.255.0
To permanently add a route at the administration XP PC, type in at a command windows:
route -p add 192.168.201.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.52.109.83
If you have formerly configured an IP address at the maintenance PC within the DECT network,
don’t forget to delete this address at the XP PC before adding the route.

SystemAri
In this field the System ARI (DECT ID) which has to be unique at each DECT system has to be configured. The
SystemAri is provided by the system implementor. Supported System Ari’s are
Class A and ClassB Ari. The SystemAri is part of the license file and is therefore not changeable directly.
SystemPIN
The "PIN" is a 8-digit number and it is needed for the registration of the WB-2 at the CC. It is preconfigured with
"00000000" and may be configured system wide here.
No new modules on scan
If this option is activated, no new devices (audioboard, Cell Antenna and Beltpack) are added to the corresponding
configuration pages of the WBM. The default value is disabled.
VPN Enable
This option enables the encryption of data communication (signalling and voice data) between the CC and all CA-6.
Encryption is realised by using an IPSEC connection in transport mode using static keys.
Some system relevant functions (e.g. SCAN and SYNC) are transmitted unencrypted.
VLAN Id
The corresponding VLAN Id (according IEEE 802.1q) for the DECT network is configured here.
Regardless of the value configured here, a CA-6 is not able to handle tagged Ethernet packets. This
is due to the fact that a CA-6 has no local console access and therefore may not be accessible
anymore if VLAN is not configured correctly. For this reason, the Switchport - at which a CA-6 is
attached to - has to be configured untagged and assigned the VLAN Id configured here.
For details refer to option "Vlan Id" of the Infrastructure network at chapter 5.3
"Network/Gateways" Configuration on page 56.
All Ethernet frames towards the IP (Infrastructure) network between the CC and the Ethernet switch are
tagged with the configured VLAN Id configured for the Infrastructure network (option VLAN Id" at page
Network/Gateways).
All Ethernet frames towards the DECT network between the CC and the Ethernet switch are tagged with the
configured VLAN Id configured for the DECT network (option "VLAN Id" at page DECT - this option).
Please take account of the correlating VLAN configuration of the IP (Infrastructure) network at chapter 5.3

6 Configuration techniques and technologies
6.1
6.1.1
Technologies
CC-60/CC-120 MADI Channel assignment
For Acrobat CC-60/CC-120 systems, each WB-2 has to be assigned a MADI Channel. This may be accomplished by
using one of two different technologies.
6.1.1.1
MADI Channel assignment by Administator (WBM)
This method may be used if the Administrator of the Acrobat system is responsible for the assignment of MADI
channels to Beltpacks.
To activate this method, DIP-SW4 at the Beltpack has to be set to OFF and a MADI channel has to be assigned by
WBM (page Devices > Beltpack > "MadiChannelNo").
6.1.1.2
MADI Channel assignment at WB-2 by User
This method may be used if the Beltpack users are responsible for the assignment of a MADI channel to their
Beltpack.
To activate this method, DIP-SW4 at the Beltpack has to be set to ON and a MADI channel has to be assigned by
using the WB-2 service menu “MADIChan”.
6.1.1.3
6.1.1.3.1
General
Formal description of WB-2 boot phase
1. Pre-condition: WB-2 was registered successfully and is operational, system services are running, WB-2 is
switched OFF. WB-2 is being switched ON or is reentering the DECT area.
2. WB-2 is signaling its DIP-SW4 state to the Cell Controller.
3. Cell Controller checks if last assigned MADIChannel of the WB-2 is free (ChanAvailable) or occupied by another
WB-2 (ChanOccupied) or not configured (NoChanConfigured).
4. Cell Controller sends the assigned MADIChannelNo and its current state (ChanAvailable, ChanOccupied,
NoChanConfigured) back to the WB-2.
5.1 ChanAvailable
The Beltpack will be started directly with OperatingDisplay.
Available chans are those who are enabled and are not connected to a MADI channel.
5.2 ChanOccupied
The Beltpack will be started with display message ChanOccupied and stays connected by DECT.
5.3 NoChanConfigured
The Beltpack will be started with display message NoChanConfigured.
88
User Manual Acrobat CC-8 / CC-60 / CC-120 V4.2
6.1.1.4
Implementation of DIP SW 4
The Status of DIP SW 4 is needed for two issues:
1. If set to ON, the service menu "MADIChannel" is available, otherwise this service menu is not available
2. If set to ON, the timeout detection for the Beltpack at the CC will be enabled. In this case, if a MADI channel is
configured for the Beltpack, this channel is reserved for this Beltpack for a period of time (see parameter Devices
> Beltpack > "Timeout") after the channel was disconnected (e.g. WB-2 was switched OFF, out of DECT area, …).
Keep in mind, that this channel is not exclusively reserved for the Beltpack. Another WB-2 may occupy this
channel during the timeout period.
If set to OFF, no Timer will be used for a Beltpack which channel is disconnected for different reasons (e.g. WB-2
was switched OFF, out of DECT area, …) -> see parameter Devices > Beltpack > Timeout.
Further details may be found in the User Manual of WB-2.
6.1.1.4.1
Hints
Under normal conditions (DIP-SW4 of all WB-2 are configured uniquely, Channels are assigned uniquely to
Beltpacks) all WB-2 will retrieve a “ChannelState” which will result to a functional WB-2.
IF DIP-SW4 is set to OFF at all WB-2, all WB-2 will receive a “ChanAvailable”.
IF DIP-SW4 is set to ON at all WB-2, the WB-2 will receive a “ChanAvailable”, “ChanOccupied” or
“NoChanConfigured”.
Mixing the DIP4 mode may lead to situations where a WB-2 (with DIP-SW4 set to OFF) may have no system
functionality after Power-ON. In this case the DIP-mode for this WB-2 has to be set to ON or a valid channel has to
be assigned at the WBM.
6.1.2
SNMP
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is used by the ACROBAT system mainly to detect overload
situations and failure situations of the system. These may be queried by a SNMP Server (SNMP MIB - Management
Information Base) or may be signaled by the Cell Controller via SNMP Trap. Furthermore, the MIBs and traps of
the OS (LINUX - openwrt) may be used - but are provided "as is".
The implementation uses SNMP version 2 with fixed ports. For the ACROBAT system, a specific MIB file is
available. The name of the used MIB is "ACROBAT-MIB".
The Cell Controller of the Acrobat system provides besides SNMP values and tables (which may be queried with a
SNMP manager) also SNMP traps which are signaled to a SNMP management system (which IP address has to be
configured in the WBM of the Cell Controller).
Since a lot of data has to be queried by the Cell Controller for each SNMP request, this will lead to a high system
load of the Cell Controller, a special mechanism was implemented to refresh the tables only if needed. Therefore,
a specific SNMP value has to be queried by the SNMP management system to trigger the actualization of the
SNMP tables by the Cell Controller.

Implementation Details
The SNMP MIBs provide statistical data of the Cell Controller (one table per day) to retrieve them by SNMP
queries. A maximum of 14 statistical tables for the last 14 days are stored. Therefore one table holds the data for
the current time period (current day), the other tables provide data for the last 13 days.
The naming conventions of the SNMP values according the OID (Object Identifier) is composed as follows:
The table with the current period of time is assigned the relative OID .1.
The table of the last day is assigned the relative OID .2.
The table of the day before yesterday is assigned the relative OID .3, …

Ethernet Synchronization (acc. IEEE1588)
Towards an Ethernet based Synchronization (acc. IEEE1588, PTP Precious Time Protocol) great demands are made
on Ethernet characteristics like symmetry, packet loss, delay, jitter (variation of delay). Therefore special
requirements regarding the Ethernet components (especially the Ethernet switches used) have to be considered.
Exceeding of limits (especially of jitter) will lead to loss of synchronization, which will finally lead to a
resynchronization process. During this process the belonging Cell Antennas are unable to establish audio
connections.
The Synchronization according Ethernet solely uses a star shaped topology. Maximally one Cell Antenna serves a
Synchronization Master (Sync Master), all other Cell Antennas which participate at the synchronization serve as
Synchronization Slaves (Sync Slave).
Resynchronization
The DECT functionality of all Cell Antennas, which are configured as IEEE1588 Sync Slaves, depends on the
availability of the IEEE1588 Sync Master. If the Sync Master is not functional (e. g not Online due to Ethernet
problems …), all 1588 sync slaves will go OutOfSync. During this time no audio connections are possible.
General requirements on the Ethernet system
A maximum number of three cascaded Ethernet switches are supported between the Sync Master (SM) and a
Sync Slave (SS) Cell Antenna. The following figure illustrates a valid and an invalid setup according the "3 switch
hop" rule.

As shown in this figure, also a 5 switch setup may be realized by choosing the correct position of the Sync-Master
inside the switch topology.
Only premium class switches, which fulfill the requirements regarding Ethernet synchronization according
IEEE1588, are supported.
Usage of VLAN at the Cell Antennas for Infrastructure and DECT network is mandatory. All participating switches
have to be configured in a way that the VLAN of the DECT network has to be assigned the highest priority.

Timezone Support
A Timezone may be selected on WBM page Network/Gateways. This Timezone defines the time shift to GMT
(Greenwich Mean Time) as well as the parameters for daylight savings. About 75 different time zones are
available, which should cover nearly all regions of the world.
The appropriate Timezone for Germany is:
"(GMT +01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Stockholm, Vienna".
•
Activating a changed timezone setting requires a reboot of the Cell Controller. Configuration of
a Timezone on a Cell Controller is reasonable only in the context of a configured NTP server.
•
The width of the timezone column may be changed by dragging the scale element at the lower
right corner (see figure).

7 Troubleshooting / FAQ
7.1
7.1.1
DECT
Cell Antenna is not found using "Scan"
Please check the following:
•
Is the "missing" Cell Antenna connected with the network cable (LED states of the CA-6 OK)?
•
Is the network cable connected at a PoE Port of the CC-8?
•
Is the network cable connected to a PoE Ethernet Switch?
Please check the Status LEDs at the relevant PoE Ports of the Ethernet Switch.
Please check if the power at the relevant PoE Port is enabled.
•
Is the network cable connected to a Power Injector and an Ethernet Switch without PoE functionality?
Please check the Status LEDs of the Power Injector.
•
The Cell Antennas must be located in the same Ethernet segment as the Cell Controller.
These devices cannot operate in different Ethernet segments connected via an IP Router.
•
VLAN configuration issues
•
Newly added Cell Antennas are not recognized and displayed by SCAN during running system services. Stop
the system services and repeat the SCAN.
•
7.2
7.2.1
Check, if option "No new modules on scan" is activated
Audioboard at CC-8
No Audio data from / to Audioboard
The configuration (assignment of Audiochannels / Partyline / Beltpack) is OK, but no voice from/to Audioboard
may be heard at the Beltpacks.
Possible reason: The Audioboard has to be in sync with the CA-6. This synchronization is done via Ethernet sync
acc. IEEE 1588. If no CA-6 is configured for "1588 master", the audioboard will not be able to go "InSync".

Depending of the security settings of MS IE, the IP address of the Cell Controller has to be added to the list of
Trusted sites (Tools - Internet options - Security - Trusted sites).
This comes in effect when Backing up a configuration file of the Cell Controller. If the security settings are not
valid, the configuration file will not be downloaded and the WBM session will be closed.
For IE7 there is an issue one some installations when backing up the configuration. After initiating the backup
process, the information panel will be displayed and afterwards you are logged out from the WBM. To overcome
this situation, you have to change the following settings in IE7:
1.
Choose Tools – Internet-Options - Security
2.
Select the appropriate zone in which the Cell Controller is located (e.g. "Trusted sites") and select [Custom
level]
3.
In the outline view browse to "Downloads" and change the setting of "Automatic prompting for file
downloads" from Disabled to Enabled
IE9 is not officially supported already. The "Compatibilty mode" has to be activated; otherwise, only
a blank screen will be displayed by IE9 after Login to WBM.
