In some cases, the users may insert their own SFP laser transceivers into the product. Users are
alerted that RAD cannot be held responsible for any damage that may result if non-compliant
transceivers are used. In particular, users are warned to use only agency approved products that
comply with the local laser safety regulations for Class 1 laser products.
Always observe standard safety precautions during installation, operation and maintenance of
this product. Only qualified and authorized service personnel should carry out adjustment,
maintenance or repairs to this product. No installation, adjustment, maintenance or repairs
should be performed by either the operator or the user.
Handling Energized Products
General Safety Practices
Do not touch or tamper with the power supply when the power cord is connected. Line voltages
may be present inside certain products even when the power switch (if installed) is in the OFF
position or a fuse is blown. For DC-powered products, although the voltages levels are usually
not hazardous, energy hazards may still exist.
Before working on equipment connected to power lines or telecommunication lines, remove
jewelry or any other metallic object that may come into contact with energized parts.
Unless otherwise specified, all products are intended to be grounded during normal use.
Grounding is provided by connecting the mains plug to a wall socket with a protective ground
terminal. If a ground lug is provided on the product, it should be connected to the protective
ground at all times, by a wire with a diameter of 18 AWG or wider. Rack-mounted equipment
should be mounted only in grounded racks and cabinets.
Always make the ground connection first and disconnect it last. Do not connect
telecommunication cables to ungrounded equipment. Make sure that all other cables are
disconnected before disconnecting the ground.
Some products may have panels secured by thumbscrews with a slotted head. These panels may
cover hazardous circuits or parts, such as power supplies. These thumbscrews should therefore
always be tightened securely with a screwdriver after both initial installation and subsequent
access to the panels.
Connecting AC Mains
Make sure that the electrical installation complies with local codes.
Always connect the AC plug to a wall socket with a protective ground.
The maximum permissible current capability of the branch distribution circuit that supplies power
to the product is 16A (20A for USA and Canada). The circuit breaker in the building installation
should have high breaking capacity and must operate at short-circuit current exceeding 35A (40A
for USA and Canada).
Always connect the power cord first to the equipment and then to the wall socket. If a power
switch is provided in the equipment, set it to the OFF position. If the power cord cannot be
readily disconnected in case of emergency, make sure that a readily accessible circuit breaker or
emergency switch is installed in the building installation.
In cases when the power distribution system is IT type, the switch must disconnect both poles
simultaneously.
Connecting DC Power
Unless otherwise specified in the manual, the DC input to the equipment is floating in reference
to the ground. Any single pole can be externally grounded.
Due to the high current capability of DC power systems, care should be taken when connecting
the DC supply to avoid short-circuits and fire hazards.
Make sure that the DC power supply is electrically isolated from any AC source and that the
installation complies with the local codes.
The maximum permissible current capability of the branch distribution circuit that supplies power
to the product is 16A (20A for USA and Canada). The circuit breaker in the building installation
should have high breaking capacity and must operate at short-circuit current exceeding 35A (40A
for USA and Canada).
Before connecting the DC supply wires, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. Locate
the circuit breaker of the panel board that services the equipment and switch it to the OFF
position. When connecting the DC supply wires, first connect the ground wire to the
corresponding terminal, then the positive pole and last the negative pole. Switch the circuit
breaker back to the ON position.
A readily accessible disconnect device that is suitably rated and approved should be incorporated
in the building installation.
If the DC power supply is floating, the switch must disconnect both poles simultaneously.
Connecting Data and Telecommunications Cables
Data and telecommunication interfaces are classified according to their safety status.
The following table lists the status of several standard interfaces. If the status of a given port
differs from the standard one, a notice will be given in the manual.

TNV-3 Telecommunication Network Voltage-3:
Ports whose normal operating voltage exceeds the
limits of SELV (usually up to 120 VDC or telephone
ringing voltages), on which overvoltages from
telecommunication networks are possible.
Safety Extra Low Voltage:
Ports which do not present a safety hazard. Usually
up to 30 VAC or 60 VDC.
Always connect a given port to a port of the same safety status. If in doubt, seek the assistance
of a qualified safety engineer.
Always make sure that the equipment is grounded before connecting telecommunication cables.
Do not disconnect the ground connection before disconnecting all telecommunications cables.
Some SELV and non-SELV circuits use the same connectors. Use caution when connecting cables.
Extra caution should be exercised during thunderstorms.
When using shielded or coaxial cables, verify that there is a good ground connection at both
ends. The grounding and bonding of the ground connections should comply with the local codes.
The telecommunication wiring in the building may be damaged or present a fire hazard in case of
contact between exposed external wires and the AC power lines. In order to reduce the risk,
there are restrictions on the diameter of wires in the telecom cables, between the equipment
and the mating connectors.
Caution
To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger telecommunication line
cords.
Attention
Pour réduire les risques s’incendie, utiliser seulement des conducteurs de
télécommunications 26 AWG ou de section supérieure.
Some ports are suitable for connection to intra-building or non-exposed wiring or cabling only. In
such cases, a notice will be given in the installation instructions.
Do not attempt to tamper with any carrier-provided equipment or connection hardware.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
The equipment is designed and approved to comply with the electromagnetic regulations of
major regulatory bodies. The following instructions may enhance the performance of the
equipment and will provide better protection against excessive emission and better immunity
against disturbances.
A good ground connection is essential. When installing the equipment in a rack, make sure to
remove all traces of paint from the mounting points. Use suitable lock-washers and torque. If an
external grounding lug is provided, connect it to the ground bus using braided wire as short as
possible.
The equipment is designed to comply with EMC requirements when connecting it with unshielded
twisted pair (UTP) cables. However, the use of shielded wires is always recommended, especially
for high-rate data. In some cases, when unshielded wires are used, ferrite cores should be
installed on certain cables. In such cases, special instructions are provided in the manual.
Disconnect all wires which are not in permanent use, such as cables used for one-time
configuration.
The compliance of the equipment with the regulations for conducted emission on the data lines
is dependent on the cable quality. The emission is tested for UTP with 80 dB longitudinal
conversion loss (LCL).
Unless otherwise specified or described in the manual, TNV-1 and TNV-3 ports provide secondary
protection against surges on the data lines. Primary protectors should be provided in the building
installation.
The equipment is designed to provide adequate protection against electro-static discharge (ESD).
However, it is good working practice to use caution when connecting cables terminated with
plastic connectors (without a grounded metal hood, such as flat cables) to sensitive data lines.
Before connecting such cables, discharge yourself by touching ground or wear an ESD preventive
wrist strap.

data rates or event timing when transmitting from one device to
another. Also used to remove jitter.
Carrier
A continuous signal at a fixed frequency that is capable of being
modulated with a second (information carrying) signal.
Cell
The 53-byte basic information unit within an ATM network. The user
traffic is segmented into cells at the source and reassembled at the
destination. An ATM cell consists of a 5-byte ATM header and a 48byte ATM payload, which contains the user data.
Channel
A path for electrical transmission between two or more points. Also
called a link, line, circuit or facility.
Clock
A term for the source(s) of timing signals used in synchronous
transmission.
Control Signals
Signals passing between one part of a communications system and
another (such as RTS, DTR, or DCD), as part of a mechanism for
controlling the system.
CTS (Clear To Send)
A modem interface control signal from the data communications
equipment (DCE) indicating to the data terminal equipment (DTE) that
it may begin data transmission.
Data
Information represented in digital form, including voice, text, facsimile
and video.
dBm
A measure of power in communications: the decibel in reference to
one milliwatt (0 dBm = 1 milliwatt and -30 dBm = .001 milliwatt).
Diagnostics
The detection and isolation of a malfunction or mistake in a
communications device, network or system.
Equalizer
A device that compensates for distortion due to signal attenuation
and propagation time with respect to frequency. It reduces the effects
of amplitude, frequency and/or phase distortion.

wide area networks. Ethernet operates at many speeds, including data
rates of 10 Mbps (Ethernet), 100 Mbps (Fast Ethernet), 1,000 Mbps
(Gigabit Ethernet), 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps, and 100 Gbps.
Flow Control
A congestion control mechanism that results in an ATM system
implementing flow control.
Frame
A logical grouping of information sent as a link-layer unit over a
transmission medium. The terms packet, datagram, segment, and

and receiving) at the same time.
G.703
An ITU standard for the physical and electrical characteristics of
various digital interfaces, including those at 64 kbps and 2.048 Mbps.
Gateway
Gateways are points of entrance and exit from a communications
network. Viewed as a physical entity, a gateway is that node that
translates between two otherwise incompatible networks or network
segments. Gateways perform code and protocol conversion to
facilitate traffic between data highways of differing architecture.

signals.
IP Address
Also known as an Internet address. A unique string of numbers that
identifies a computer or device on a TCP/IP network. The format of an
IP address is a 32-bit numeric address written as four numbers from 0
to 255, separated by periods (for example, 1.0.255.123).
Jitter
The deviation of a transmission signal in time or phase. It can
introduce errors and loss of synchronization in high speed
synchronous communications.
Laser
A device that transmits an extremely narrow and coherent beam of
electromagnetic energy in the visible light spectrum. Used as a light
source for fiber optic transmission (generally more expensive, shorter
lived, single mode only, for greater distances than LED).
Loopback
A type of diagnostic test in which the transmitted signal is returned to
the sending device after passing through all or part of a
communications link or network.
Manager
An application that receives Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP) information from an agent. An agent and manager share a
database of information, called the Management Information Base
(MIB). An agent can use a message called a traps-PDU to send
unsolicited information to the manager. A manager that uses the
RADview MIB can query the RAD device, set parameters, sound alarms
when certain conditions appear, and perform other administrative
tasks.
Multimode Fiber
A fiber with a large core diameter; 50-200 microns compared with the
wavelength of light. It therefore propagates more than one mode.
With multimode fiber, light traverses multiple paths, some longer than
others. This leads to dispersion, which reduces optical range.
Multiplexer
At one end of a communications link, a device that combines several
lower speed transmission channels into a single high speed channel. A
multiplexer at the other end reverses the process. Sometimes called a
mux. See Bit Interleaving/Multiplexing.
Network
(1) An interconnected group of nodes. (2) A series of points, nodes,
or stations connected by communications channels; the collection of
equipment through which connections are made between data
stations.
parameters
Parameters are often called arguments, and the two words are used
interchangeably. However, some computer languages such as C define
argument to mean actual parameter (i.e., the value), and parameter to
mean formal parameter. In RAD CLI, parameter means formal
parameter, not value.
Physical Layer
Layer 1 of the OSI model. The layer concerned with electrical,
mechanical, and handshaking procedures over the interface
connecting a device to the transmission medium.
Port
The physical interface to a computer or multiplexer, for connection of
terminals and modems.
prompt
One or more characters in a command line interface to indicate that
the computer is ready to accept typed input.
Protocol
A formal set of conventions governing the formatting and relative
timing of message exchange between two communicating systems.
Routing
The process of selecting the most efficient circuit path for a message.
RTS (Request To
Send)
A modem control signal sent from the DTE to the modem, which tells
the modem that the DTE has data to send.
Single Mode
Describing an optical wave-guide or fiber that is designed to
propagate light of only a single wavelength (typically 5-10 microns in
diameter).
Sync
See Synchronous Transmission.
Telnet
The virtual terminal protocol in the Internet suite of protocols. It lets
users on one host access another host and work as terminal users of
that remote host. Instead of dialing into the computer, the user
connects to it over the Internet using Telnet. When issuing a Telnet
session, it connects to the Telnet host and logs in. The connection
enables the user to work with the remote machine as though a
terminal was connected to it.

•
One or two power supplies (A and B):
AC/DC wide-range power supply (100-240 VAC or -40 to -72 VDC)
Fiber Optic Uplink Interface
The fiber optic interface provides a secure link in hazardous or hostile
environments, increasing the maximum connection range, and achieving immunity
against electrical interference and protection against the harmful effects of
ground loops. To optimally meet a wide range of system requirements, the fiber
optic interface can be ordered for operation over 62.5/125 micron multimode
fibers (typical attenuation 3.5 dB/km at 850 nm), as well as over low-loss
9/125 micron single mode fibers (typical attenuation 0.4 dB/km at 1310 nm, and
0.25 dB/km at 1550 nm).
The fiber optic interface is hot swappable, allowing for quick and easy
replacement in the field.
Technical Characteristics

* The Receiver Sensitivity for units with the Ethernet port is 32 dBm.
All fiber optic interface options offer high performance and have a wide dynamic
range.
Note
The SF3 option uses an SC/APC connector. The FO cable connected to it must
therefore be of the same type.
Uplink Redundancy Option
Optimux-108 can be ordered with one or two link interface options. Each
interface operates independently, and can be ordered from the link options listed
above.
In the uplink redundancy option, Optimux-108 supports fully automatic switching
between the main and the backup link. The main link has priority, therefore
normally it is selected for use, and the backup link is disabled. In case a failure
occurs on the main link, Optimux-108 automatically switches to the backup link
and continues providing normal service. After the main link returns to normal
operation, it is automatically reselected.
Each link interface has its own set of indicators that display the current state of
the link.
E1 Tributary Interface
The Optimux-108 tributary interfaces meet the requirements of ITU-T Rec. G.703.
The tributary ports (1-4) can be one of the following:
•
120Ω balanced line interface, terminated in a RJ-45 8-pin connector
•
75Ω unbalanced interface, terminated in two BNC coaxial connectors.
Line coding is HDB3. The nominal balanced interface transmit level is ±3V, and the
unbalanced interface transmit level is ±2.37V. The maximum line attenuation is up
to 6 dB, and each E1 signal is processed by an adaptive equalizer that
compensates for various cable lengths to ensure optimal performance. Phase
locked loops (PLL) are used to recover the clock signals, and the resulting jitter
performance complies with the requirements of ITU-T Rec. G.823.
Each tributary interface has its own set of indicators that show the current state
of the tributary link. The user can disable the alarm indications generated by
unused interfaces. AIS data streams are transmitted instead of failed or
unconnected tributary data streams.

Optimux-108 can be also ordered with an additional V.35 user port. This port has
a V.35 DCE interface supporting both ISO 2110 and Telebras pinouts on DB-25
connectors and M34 connector pinout. All these pinouts are supported via
external cables.
Ethernet User Port
Optimux-108 can be also ordered with an additional Ethernet user port. This port
operates at a rate of 10/100 Mbps and can be set to 10/100 full or half duplex,
autonegotiation enable/disable. It supports flow control enable/disable option
and MDI/MDIX connection.
Timing
The uplink interface supports only internal timing mode.
The clock of each E1 channel is independent for each channel and transferred
transparently.

Configuration and Management Alternatives
After installation, there are no special operating procedures for Optimux-108.
Once it is powered up, the unit operates automatically. The unit operational
status can be monitored constantly.
If required, Optimux-108 can be reconfigured. Optimux-108 can be managed
using different ports and applications:
•
Local out-of-band management via an ASCII terminal connected to the
RS-232 port. Usually, preliminary configuration of the system parameters is
performed via ASCII terminal. Once the Optimux-108 host IP parameters are
set, it is possible to access it via Telnet, ConfiguRAD or RADview for further
configuration.
•
Remote management via Ethernet management port. Remote management is
performed using Telnet, or ConfiguRAD (RAD’s Web-based application), or
RADview-PC/TDM and RADview-HPOV/TDM (RAD’s SNMP-based management
systems). Alternatively, Optimux-108 can be managed via a third-party SNMPbased NMS.
Optimux-108 allows up to three management sessions to be active at a time. This
includes up to two network sessions (Telnet or ConfiguRAD) and one ASCII
terminal session. When connected via Telnet or Web, the user is disconnected
after 10 minutes of inactivity (no keyboard input on the client computer).
The following functions are supported by the Optimux-108 management
software:
•
Viewing system information (Inventory)
•
Modifying configuration and mode of operation, including setting system
default values and resetting the unit
•
Monitoring Optimux-108 performance
•
Initiating loopback tests (Diagnostic)
•
Uploading and downloading software and configuration files.
Working with Terminal
Optimux-108 has a V.24/RS-232 asynchronous DCE port, designated CONTROL
and terminated in a 9-pin D-type female connector. The control port continuously
monitors the incoming data stream and immediately responds to any input string
received through this port.
The Optimux-108 control port can be configured to communicate at the following
rates: 9.6, 19.2, 38.4, 57.6 or 115.2 kbps.

Working with SNMP-based Management System
RADview-PC/TDM and RADview-HPOV/TDM
RADview-PC and RADview-HPOV are user-friendly and powerful SNMP-based
element management systems, used for planning, provisioning, and managing
heterogeneous networks. RADview software provides a graphical user interface
for monitoring RAD products via their SNMP agents.
RADview management software for Optimux-108 is bundled in the
RADview-PC/TDM and RADview-HPOV/TDM packages for PC (Windows-based) or
Unix, respectively.
For more details about this network management software, and for detailed
instructions on how to install, set up, and use RADview, contact your local
Authorized Business Partner or refer to the RADview-PC/TDM and
RADview-HPOV/TDM User's Manuals, located on the Technical Documentation CD
or on RAD's Web site.
Third-party SNMP-based NMS
Alternatively, Optimux-108 can be managed via a third-party SNMP-based NMS.
Optimux-108 supports several management information bases (MIBs). A MIB
(Management Information Base) is a database of managed objects. The MIB
contains the data regarding the network elements being controlled and
monitored. Each characteristic of the element to manage is defined as an object
in the MIB. The MIB is a hierarchical tree structure that acts as the repository for
defined objects. Each object has an object name, a type, syntax, an access code
(read-write, read-only, not-accessible, and write-only) and a status (mandatory,
optional, obsolete).
Optimux-108 supports appropriate groups (tables) of MIB II (SNMP standard MIB),
and the RAD Private MIB as follows:

Installation and Operation Manual
Chapter 4 Configuration
Optimux-108 stores two software versions, each of them in one of the two 1.15
MB partitions of its flash memory, which also contains a boot program. The
software is stored in compressed format. The main version is decompressed and
loaded into the Optimux-108 RAM upon power-up. The backup software is kept
for backup purposes. If the main software becomes corrupted, you can swap it
with the backup. By default, Optimux-108 is delivered with active software only.
New software releases are distributed as *.img files, which are downloaded to
Optimux-108. When starting a download, Optimux-108 erases the current backup
and places the new software in the backup partition. When downloading is
complete, the unit checks the integrity of the new software file. If it is correct,
the backup and active files are swapped. The new software release becomes
active and the former active software becomes the backup. If a failure occurs
during downloading, the new version is erased. In this case, only one version is
left stored in the flash memory. The backup software can be downloaded to the
unit and swapped with the main software later.
Downloading software is performed using the TFTP or X-Modem protocols. The
software files can also be downloaded to Optimux-108 via Boot Manager, using
XMODEM or TFTP, as explained in Appendix B.

Running Uplink Loopbacks
Local Loopback on the Uplink
The uplink local loopback returns the transmit signal of the active uplink interface
to the input of the receive path. Simultaneously, the local Optimux-108 sends an
unframed all-ones signal to the uplink.
Figure 5-13 shows the uplink local loopback connection for the Optimux-108
without optional V.35 or Ethernet user port. The diagrams for models with
optional user ports are similar but do not include AIS on the uplink.
When this loopback is activated, the equipment connected to the local
Optimux-108 tributary must receive its own transmission.
This test checks the operation of the local Optimux-108 and the connections to
the equipment attached to the tributary interfaces.

Note
For V.35 interface version: when performing Uplink RLB, V.35 data on the remote
Optimux-108 is not looped
Figure 5-14 shows the uplink remote loopback connection for the Optimux-108

Figure 5-14. Uplink Remote Loopback in the Optimux-108
³
To run a loopback on an uplink:
1. Set Device Number to the device being configured (Local or Remote).
2. Set the uplink LLB loop timeout to the number of minutes the loopback must
run (1 to 255).
3. Set uplink Loop type to the type of loop to run on this device (LLB or RLB).
The loopback test begins running immediately after the loopback is set.
Caution
Setting the Uplink Local Loopback (LLB) in the remote Optimux-108 disconnects
the link, and as such, is irreversible. To remove this loopback, connect a terminal
to the remote unit or shut down the power to the remote unit. If you set the
Uplink LLB timeout on the remote Optimux-108, the loopback test will stop after
the specified timeout period.
Running Loopbacks on E1 Tributary Channels
Optimux-108 features local and remote loopbacks on each E1 tributary link. The
loopback is set separately for each E1 interface.
E1 Tributary Local Loopback

Downloading the New Software Release File to Optimux-108
Optimux-108 stores two software versions, each of them in one of the two
partitions of its flash memory, which also contains a boot program. The software
is stored in compressed format. The active version is decompressed and loaded
into the Optimux-108 RAM upon power-up. The passive software is kept for
Optimux-108 Ver. 6.1
Upgrading Optimux-108 Software via the File Utilities Menu
6-3
Chapter 6 Software Upgrade
Installation and Operation Manual
backup purposes. By default, Optimux-108 is delivered with the active software
only.
New software releases are distributed as an *.img file, which is downloaded to
the local Optimux-108 using the TFTP or XMODEM protocol. Upon downloading,
the new software release becomes active, the former active software turns into
backup, and the former backup is erased.
If a failure occurs during downloading or decompression, the new version is
erased from the flash and the backup version becomes active. In this case, only
one version is left stored in the flash memory. If the active software becomes
corrupted, you can replace it with its backup.
This procedure is used to replace the current software version with the new
software release (OP-106.img).
Downloading a New Software Release via TFTP
