Chapter 1
Edit Configuration Mode
This section describes the Megaplex management operations that can be
performed in RADview’s Edit Configuration mode.
1.1 Connecting RADview Management Station to TDM
The RADview management station may be connected to Megaplex units in one of
the following setups:
•
Direct management-to-TDM link running on Single Line Internet Protocol
(SLIP)
•
Connection from management station in a LAN through an MBE to a TDM
unit.
Direct Management Connection
In this application, the management station is connected directly to a Megaplex
unit. If more than one device is installed on this network, the device directly
connected to management is the local unit. Any other devices are remote.
This application requires installation of SLIP. It is the customer's responsibility to
acquire a SLIP communication program and to install it according to the
manufacturer's instructions. RADview supports both public domain SLIP and
vendor SLIP.
Figure 1-1 shows a sample direct management application.

Management via LAN
In this application, the management station is connected to the device through an
Ethernet LAN and an MBE (Ethernet Elementary Bridge). If the MBE and the device
are located in the same subnet, the system will operate immediately upon
hardware connection with no need for further software configuration.
Figure 1-2 and Figure 1-3 show a sample management via LAN application.

Configuring R2 Data Profile
Most of the parameters included in an R2 profile can be automatically selected by
specifying a national (country) implementation. In addition, it is necessary to select
the type of link (terrestrial or satellite).
R2 profiles enable the user to specify, for each individual channel (identified by
the main link timeslot to which it is routed), the call permissions: incoming only,
outgoing only, or both.
To set R2 data:
1. From the Signaling Profile Dialog Box, select a profile whose type is R2 CAS
and click <R2 Data…>
The R2 Data dialog box appears. There are three tabs: General, Timers
and Data.
2. Click on the desired tab to configure parameters
3. Click <Set> to add the changes to the NMS database and close the dialog
box.

Note: You can select more than one destination slot by using standard Windows item
selection methods (click<CTRL>click, click<SHIFT>click). Each destination slot will
receive the same configuration.
A destination slot may contain data that affects or depends on data of other slots (for
example, redundant MTML cards, LS-6 tandem cards, and so on). These conditions are
not checked or processed further by RADview. You are responsible for checking and
correcting such conditions.
Removing a Card
The Remove command deletes a card configuration from the selected slot in the
Edit Configuration mode. If the card configuration exists in the same slot in other
Edit Configurations of the current Megaplex, the card configuration will be
removed from all.
To remove a card from the Edit Configuration:
1. Click the card you want to remove.
2. From the Configuration menu, select Remove.
A dialog box appears asking you to confirm the Remove operation.
3. Click <OK> to confirm.
1.5 Port Level Configuration Operations
RADview allows you to perform network management in the Port Level. You select
a port by clicking it in the zoomed card view.

This section explains the Megaplex management operations that are performed in
RADview’s Agent mode.
2.1 System Level Agent Operations
In the Agent mode, you can display configuration information for the current
Megaplex configuration in the Megaplex, Card and Port Levels. Data accessed in
the Agent mode may be used for comparison and analysis when adjusting
parameters in the Edit Configuration view.
You can display active alarms and history log for the Megaplex, cards and ports. In
addition, you can view and analyze port statistics at the management station from
the Agent mode.
Any of the slot positions can be selected. Only correctly installed slot positions can
be monitored and zoomed. The Megaplex view displays the rear panel of each of
its installed cards, along with the card's name. If a slot is empty, no rear panel is
displayed. If an unknown card is installed, the rear panel displays "?" (unknown).
If a slot in the agent is incorrectly installed, a red frame surrounds it. If a slot is
selected, a light blue frame surrounds it.

Flip Index
Index number of the entry in the Table according to the order of priority.
When multiple event combinations cause flipping to more than one configuration at the
same time, RADview will activate the entry that comes first in the Decision Table.
Logical Expression Combination of net events, which, if they occur, causes RADview to flip to a specific
Megaplex configuration.
The expression consists of event numbers and the following logical symbols (maximum of
19 characters):
& - AND
| - OR
! – NOT
( ) – Parentheses enclose a combination of events that comprises a single condition in the
logical expression.
For example, (2&51)|(!102&4) means that (event no. 2 exists AND event no. 51 exists)
OR (event no. 102 does not exist AND event no. 4 exists).
Note: The logical expression cannot begin with a blank space.

Only active state alarms with a severity level of warning, major, minor or critical can be
inverted.
An inverted alarm cannot be masked by the Mask function.
An inverted alarm cannot be cleared by an Alarms>Clear or Alarms>Clear All
command.
An inverted alarm cannot be saved, so the inversion will be lost if the Megaplex is turned
off. However, the inversion is retained after the card is removed.

VF-PBX Family Limitations
It is not recommended to use VF-PBX family cards on the MP2104 hub because
they have a limited power supply module. The Power Supply provides 6A while
the VF-PBX cards need 2.4A for Master and 2.1A for Slave. Since there are other
cards in the hub (CL, ML) only one VF-PBX card can be used.
Bi-directional Bypass
In order to remove Bi-directional Bypass between 2 ML ports in TSA which are
configured with 'Direction' =Both (for two entries, one for each port), it is
necessary to remove both entries. In addition, in order to change this Bypass to
Uni-directional, it is necessary to change the direction of one ML port, and to
change the other ML port TS connections from Both to Rx.
