Fiber Optic Link
Fiber Optic Link Interface Characteristics
The fiber optic interface can be used to provide a secure link in hazardous or
hostile environments, increase the maximum connection range, and achieve
immunity against electrical interference and protection against the harmful effects
of ground loops.
The fiber optic interface complies with the requirements of ITU-T Rec. G.956, and
uses a proprietary signaling format that ensures optimum performance. To
optimally meet a wide range of system requirements, the fiber optic interface can
be ordered for operation over 62.5/125 micron multi-mode fibers (typical
attenuation 3.5 dB/km at 850 nm), as well as over low-loss 9/125-micron singlemode fibers (typical attenuation 0.4 dB/km at 1310 nm, and 0.25 dB/km at 1550
nm). Most of the options can be ordered with ST, SC, or FC/PC connectors. In
addition, 9/125-micron single mode over a single fiber is also available (with SC
connectors only).
Note
The SF3 option uses an SC/APC connector. The FO cable connected to it must
therefore be of the same type.
Table 1-1 provides information on the characteristics of the optical sub-system,
including the maximum range over typical fiber optic cable. The maximum range
values given in the table assume a 3 dB margin.

All the fiber optic interface options offer high performance and have a wide
dynamic range, which ensures that the receiver does not saturate even when using
short fiber optic cables (saturation is caused when the optical power applied to the
receiver exceeds its maximum allowed input power, and results in very high bit
error rates).
Fiber Optic Link Redundancy Option
MT1000A can be ordered with one or two link interface options. Each interface
operates independently, and can be ordered from any of the link options listed
above.
In the fiber optic link redundancy option, MT1000A supports fully automatic
switching between link A and link B. Link A has priority. Therefore, normally link A
is selected for use, and link B is disabled. In case a failure occurs on link A,
MT1000A automatically switches to link B and continues providing normal service.
After link A returns to normal operation, it is automatically reselected.
Each link interface has its own set of indicators that show the current state of the
link. AIS alarm will not appear for the non-active optical link.
Tributary Interface Characteristics
The MT1000A tributary interfaces meet the requirements of ITU-T Rec. G.703.
Each tributary port has a 100Ω balanced line interface terminated in an RJ-45
eight-pin connector.
1-4
Functional Description
MT1000A Installation and Operation Manual
Chapter 1 Introduction
Line coding is B8ZS or AMI. The nominal balanced interface transmit level is
±3.0 V. The line attenuation is up to 12 dB, and each T1 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.824.
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 (via internal switch and terminal, see section 2.5). AIS data streams are
transmitted instead of failed or unconnected tributary data streams.
Test and Diagnostics Capabilities
MT1000A has comprehensive test and diagnostics capabilities that include local
and remote loopbacks on the fiber optic link interface and on each tributary link.
The activation is performed by sending a special test sequence through the fiber
optic link. An automatic self-test on power-up further enhances maintenance.
For more information on activating loopbacks see Chapter 4.
Alarms and Alarm Indications
MT1000A can detect the following alarm conditions on each T1 and fiber optic
interface:
Notes
•
Loss of input signal
•
Loss of frame synchronization
•
Reception of alarm indication (AIS) signal, which consists of a continuous
sequence of 1s.
• When AIS is received, loss of frame synchronization occurs. However, in this
case the alarm indicating the loss of frame synchronization is suppressed.
• AIS alarm will not appear for the non-active optical link.
When not all the tributaries are in use, the user can disable the alarm indications
related to the unused tributaries.
The response to alarm conditions is as follows:
•
AIS is transmitted on each tributary output in the following cases:
Loss of fiber optic input signal is detected
AIS is received on the fiber optic input
Loss of fiber optic frame synchronization.
•
For each tributary, an AIS signal is sent instead of the tributary data stream
through the fiber optic link in the following cases:
Loss of tributary input signal is detected
AIS is received on the tributary input
Loss of tributary frame synchronization.
Functional Description
1-5
MT1000A Installation and Operation Manual
Chapter 1 Introduction
Front panel indicators display each alarm condition. In addition, a dedicated
connector is used to provide major and minor alarm indications, by means of dry
contacts.
The major alarm is activated in the following cases:
•
MT1000A is not powered, or total power supply failure (e.g., when two power
supplies are installed, failure of both supplies).
•
Loss of fiber optic input signals, or loss of fiber optic frame synchronization.
•
Loss of tributary input signals, or loss of frame synchronization
•
Unable to activate redundancy.
The minor alarm is activated in the following cases:
•
Reception of AIS signal on the fiber optic input.
•
Reception of AIS signal on tributary inputs.
Management and Monitoring
MT1000A units are equipped with a front panel serial RS-232 management port
and an Ethernet management port. The RS-232 port operates at user-selectable
rates of 9.6, 19.2, 38.4, 57.6 and 115.2 kbps over a null-modem cable. The
Ethernet port operates at a rate of 10 Mbps and can be set to full- or half-duplex.
The management interface supports the following management methods:
•
Supervision Terminal–An ASCII terminal connected to the RS-232 port (or a
PC running a terminal emulation program) can be used as a supervision
terminal. All software required for the various management functions available
through the terminal is contained in the MT1000A.
•
SNMP Management–The management interface includes an SNMP agent that
enables SNMP management of the MT1000A, using the UDP-over-SLIP (Serial
Link Internet Protocol) protocol. The SNMP agent also enables management
by other SNMP-based systems.
•
Ethernet Management–A management terminal can be connected to the
MT1000A via an Ethernet connection, using a UTP-CAT5 cable. The 10BaseT
Ethernet interface supports a throughput of 10 Mbps. All software required for
the various management functions available through the terminal is contained
in the MT1000A.
Power Requirements
MT1000A can be ordered with one or two power supplies. Two types of power
supplies are available:
•
AC/DC wide-range for operation on AC (100 to 240 VAC) or on
DC (40-72 VDC) sources
•
DC operation on 24 VDC source.
Each power supply (A and B) can be ordered as one of the above power supply
types).

Interfaces and Connections
MT1000A Installation and Operation Manual
Chapter 2 Installation and Setup
To connect the fiber optic links:
1. Before connecting, clean the optical connectors using an approved solvent and
dry thoroughly using optical tissue.
2. For each fiber optic link interface (A and B), connect two optical cables to the
two optical connectors designated TX (transmit output) and RX (receive input)
of the appropriate interface. Pay attention to correct connection of the
transmit and receive cables to the corresponding connectors. Avoid sharp
bends and twisting of the fiber optic cables.
3. For the WDM option, only one fiber optic cable per link should be connected.
Connecting the Alarm Relays
The ALARM connector is used to connect to the changeover contacts of the major
and minor alarm relays.
To connect the alarm relays:
•
Connect the cable to the ALARM connector on the rear panel.
Grounding
The connection of the protective ground is accomplished through one of the pins
of the power connector, both for the AC and DC versions.
This instrument may become dangerous if damage to the protective
(grounding) conductor (inside or outside the instrument) occurs or if
disconnecting from the protective ground terminal.
Warning
To ground MT1000A:
•
Connect the protective ground terminals of the MT1000A to the protective
ground conductor of the power cord.
Connecting the Power
Figure 2-2 shows a typical rear panel power for an MT1000A unit with a dual AC
power supply. When only one power supply unit is installed, the rear panel
includes a single power connector.
The wide-range AC/DC power supply inside the MT1000A accepts current from
both AC and DC sources. From an AC source, the power supply can receive any
voltage in the range of 100 to 240 VAC. From a DC source, the 48 VDC power
supply can receive any voltage in the range of 40 to 72 VDC.
When connecting the DC power, the PWR pin must be connected to the
ungrounded line of the central battery (either − or +). The RTN pin must be
connected to the grounded line of the central battery. The GND pin must be
connected to the protected earth of the building installation.

Diagnostic Tests
MT1000A supports the following types of loopback connections:
•
Loopbacks toward the local MT1000A
•
Loopbacks toward the remote MT1000A.
The test functions are controlled by the management software. During all
loopbacks, the TST indicator lights up on the units that participate in the loopback
path.
The available loopback functions are described in the following paragraphs.

Chapter 5 Testing and Diagnostics
Local Loopbacks in the MT1000A
You can set two types of local loopback connections in the MT1000A unit:
•
T1 local, which is set for each T1 interface separately from a terminal.
•
Fiber optic link local, which can be set from a terminal.
T1 Local Loopback in the MT1000A
The T1 local loopback returns the T1 transmit signal to the output of the receive
path. Simultaneously, an unframed all-ones signal is sent to the MUX. Figure 5-1
shows the T1 local loopback connection.
This test checks the operation of the connections to the equipment attached to the
local tributary interfaces.

Fiber Optic Link Local Loopback in the MT1000A
The fiber optic local loopback returns the transmit signal of the active fiber optic
link interface to the input of the receive path. Simultaneously, the local
MT1000A sends an unframed all-ones signal to the fiber optic link. Figure 5-2
shows the fiber optic link local loopback connection.
When this loopback is activated, the equipment connected to the local
MT1000A tributary must receive its own transmission.
This test checks the operation of the local MT1000A, and the connections to the
equipment attached to the tributary interfaces.

MT1000A 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).
MT1000A supports appropriate groups (tables) of MIB II (SNMP standard MIB) and
some other MIBs, as shown in Table B-1.

DC Power Supply Connection – Terminal Block Connector
Note: Ignore this supplement if the unit is
AC-powered.
Certain DC-powered units are equipped with a plastic 3-pin
VDC-IN power input connector, located on the unit rear panel.
Different variations of the connector are shown in Figure 1. All
are functionally identical.
Supplied with such units is a kit including a mating Terminal
Block (TB) type connector plug for attaching to your power
supply cable.

Connect the wires of your power supply cable to the TB plug,
according to the voltage polarity and assembly instructions
provided below.
Caution: Prepare all connections to the TB plug before
inserting it into the unit’s VDC-IN connector.
Preparing and Connecting the Power
Supply Cable with the TB Plug
Refer to Figure 2 for assistance.
1. Strip the insulation of your power supply wires
according to the dimensions shown.
2. Place each wire lead into the appropriate TB
plug terminal according to the voltage polarity
mapping shown in Figure 4. (If a terminal is
not already open, loosen its screw).
Afterwards, tighten close the three terminal
screws.

3. Pull a nylon cable tie (supplied) around the
power supply cable to secure it firmly to the
TB plug grip, passing the tie through the holes
on the grip.
4. Isolate the exposed terminal screws/wire
leads using a plastic sleeve or insulating tape,
to prevent the possibility of short-circuit.
5. Connect the assembled power supply cable to
the unit by inserting the TB plug into the unit’s
VDC-IN connector until it snaps into place.

Note: Certain TB plugs are equipped with captive
screws for securing the assembled cable’s
TB plug to the unit’s VDC-IN connector (C and
E types only). To secure the plug, tighten the two
screws on the plug into the corresponding holes
on the sides of the input connector as shown in
Figure 3.

DC Power Supply Wire Voltage Polarity
Refer to Figure 4 for proper mapping of the power supply
wire leads to the TB plug’s three terminals.
Warning:
• Reversing the wire voltage polarity can cause damage to
the unit!
• Always connect a ground (earth) wire to the TB plug’s
Chassis (frame) Ground terminal. Connecting the unit
without a protective ground, or interruption of the
grounding (for example, by using an extension power cord
without a grounding conductor) can cause harm to the unit
or to the equipment connected to it!
