Labeling the Cables
CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
4.
Caution
If each of the three external uplinks is not connected as described in Note #4, a single point of failure
could cause a traffic interruption.
5.
Caution
Note
To support full system redundancy, it is necessary to connect each of the three
Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch external uplinks to a different network with diverse routing paths to
the related external network elements (NEs) and services (such as OSS, DNS, media gateways, and
announcement servers).
To ensure redundancy of the DNS lookup function in the event of a network outage, it is strongly
recommended to have two DNS units reachable via separate networks with diverse routing paths.
If both DNS servers become unreachable, a traffic interruption will occur.
Ethernet ports on the rear panels of some EMS and CA units are labeled ETH0, ZNB0, ZNB1, and so
forth. On some units these ports are labeled hme0, qfe0, qfe1, and so forth. Regardless of the labeling
style, the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch functionality is the same.
Labeling the Cables
Make sure that you have all the cables labeled before you begin. Label the cables according to the
procedure in Appendix A: Cable Labeling, page 22.
Connect Ethernet Cables To EMS and CA Units
Follow these steps to connect the Ethernet cables. Refer to Figure 1 on page 2 to identify the specific

Enable IRDP
CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
Enable IRDP on Adjacent Cisco Routers
If you are enabling IRDP on Cisco routers adjacent to the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch, follow these
steps. If you have any questions about setup of these routers, contact your system administrator. If you
need additional assistance, contact Cisco TAC.
Step 1
Verify that you have the network information data sheet (NIDS) applicable to this
Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch. If necessary, contact your network administrator to verify that you have
the correct NIDS.
Step 2
On default gateway interfaces for Network2 and Network3 (as defined in the NIDS) enable IRDP using
the following commands:
config t
interface <Fast Ethernet interface number (see NIDS)>
ip irdp
ip irdp maxadvertinterval 4
ip irdp minadvertinterval 3
ip irdp holdtime 10
Step 3
Validate the configuration by performing the following command on both CA/FS hosts and both EMS
hosts:
login as root
#netstat -rn
Step 4
View the display and verify that each default route was populated dynamically by IRDP.
Verify IRDP Functions
Follow these steps to verify that IRDP is functioning properly on the network:
Side A CA
Perform Step 1 through Step 11 on the side A CA.
Step 1
Login to the side A CA as root.
Step 2
Display the IRDP daemon status by entering the following command:
ps -ef|grep in.rdisc
Step 3
20
View the display and verify that each default route was populated dynamically by IRDP. The display
should include the following information: /usr/sbin/in.rdisc -s -f. (This indicates that IRDP is running
properly.)
OL-2906-01
Verify Interfaces
CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
Step 4
Display the routing table by entering the following command:
netstat -rn
Step 5
Verify that the routing table shows two default routes, one on interface ZNB0 and one on ZNB4.
Step 6
Unplug the interface ZNB0 link at the back of the side A CA.
Step 7
Display the routing table by entering the following command:
netstat -rn
Step 8
Verify that the route for interface ZNB0 does not appear in the routing table.
Note
When a link is unplugged or plugged back in, it may take 5 to 10 seconds for the IRDP function
to automatically update.
Step 9
Plug the interface ZNB0 link back in to the side A CA.
Step 10
Display the routing table (netstat -rn) and verify that the route for interface ZNB0 appears in the
routing table again.
Step 11
Repeat Step 6 through Step 10 for the interface ZNB4 link.
Side B CA
Repeat Step 1 through Step 11 for the side B CA.
Verify Interfaces
Follow these steps to verify that all interfaces are configured on all computing elements:
Step 1
If the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch application software has already been installed on the system, go to
Step 2. If the application has not been installed, go to Step 4.
Step 2
(If the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch application software has already been installed on the system)
check the interface configurations using the following command on each of the four platforms (two
EMS units and two CA/FS units):
Enter: checkCFG
Step 3
The system should display the message Validating..... If no errors are found during validation, the
system will display the message No errors found. Verify that the No errors found message is displayed.
Note
Step 4
OL-2906-01
If the system does display an error, contact Cisco TAC for assistance.
If the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch application software has not been installed on the system, install the
application using the Application Installation procedure provided by Cisco. That procedure contains
the appropriate commands to check the configurations (checkCFG).

CISCO CONFIDENTIAL
Appendix A: Cable Labeling
Cables are labeled at both ends with the cable numbers listed in Table 1. Follow these steps to create and
attach the labels.
Note
As listed in Table 1, some of the cables require labeling and others do not.
Step 1
Make each label by copying the applicable number from Table 1 onto the label. Be sure to duplicate the
number several times onto the label, as shown in Figure 7, to make it easier to read. (If desired, make
the labels for all cables in one print run.)
Step 2
On a work bench or assembly table, position a cable so that one connector is on your left and the cable
goes off to the right. (See Figure 7.)
Step 3
Attach the appropriate label to the cable as shown in Figure 7.
Step 4
Turn the cable around so that the other connector is on your left with the cable going off to the right.
Step 5
Repeat Step 2 and Step 3 for this side of the cable. The completed cable should look like the example
shown in Figure 8.
Step 6
Repeat these steps for all cables in the rack, using the numbers from the cable list (Table 1).
