Introduction
1.1
LRS-24 Overview
Management/CM-2 Functions
LRS-24 is managed by a UNIX-based or PC-based SNMP management system via
the Central Management card (CM-2). The software is user-friendly, GUI-based
and runs under PC/Windows (RADview-PC) or HP OpenView (RADview-HPOV)
systems. Configuration and monitoring are also provided via Telnet or ASCII
terminal.
Network management provides centralized control of all LRS-24 hubs, modem
cards and remote modems in the network, including interface configuration,
connection setup, alarm and monitoring. A single management station can
control up to 64,000 LRS-24 hubs.
Direct 10BaseT Ethernet connection enables real-time management of central
and remote sites. Performance information is available in graph and table format
for the last 24 hours. This information can be saved in a file for accounting
purposes.
If a major alarm occurs, the LRS-24 CM-2 card can dial out through an external
dial-up modem to a central management site. This saves a direct connection to
remote sites, while providing alerts if critical events occur. In addition alarms can
activate dry contacts. The dry contacts are placed on the system clock connector
on CM-2.
Two types of modem cards are available on the LRS-24:
•
S-Mode: Cards with a built-in SNMP agent
•
I-Mode: Cards without an SNMP agent. For these cards CM-2 serves as the
SNMP proxy agent. The CM-2 built-in agent complies with SNMP MIB II and
supports generic SNMP HPOV applications.
A new software version can be downloaded from a remote site onto the CM-2
via:
•
LAN by TFTP
•
Terminal by XMODEM.
CM-2 saves up to three software versions.
When the management station includes BootP software, the CM-2 card
automatically retrieves the IP address required for management connection. This
eliminates the need to configure IP addresses for new hub installations.
LRS-24
RADview/TDM
LRS-24 Overview
1-1
Chapter 1 Introduction
User's Manual
LRS-24 can also be managed from an ASCII terminal. It allows all functions of
SNMP except for GUI interface. The connection is made via a V.24 supervisory
port using SLIP or PPP.
Telnet support enables terminal connection over any IP network.
The CM-2 panel includes an alphanumeric display with two characters used for
alerting on fault conditions and for the hub IP address.
Power Supplies
LRS-24 operates with single or dual, AC or DC power supplies. Each power supply
supports a full LRS-24 hub, including modem cards. Redundant power supply can
be replaced during operation, without affecting system performance
(hot-swapping).
Cards in the LRS-24 chassis are capable of providing remote power feeding for
repeaters and remote standalone modems. To provide remote power feeding
order a separate standalone power supply, LRS-PS-FEED.
Product Options
Two different physical versions of the LRS-24 hub are available:
•
ANSI − card insertion, LEDs and switches are at the front, but cable
connections are at the rear of the hub. This compact, 4U high unit complies
with the American ANSI standard. Cards can be hot-swapped without
removing cables.
•
ETSI − card insertion, LEDs, switches and cable connections are at the front.
This version is 30 cm high (almost 6U), and complies with European ETSI
standard. Cards can be hot-swapped without removing cables.

Features
LRS-24 is a high-density, fully modular design with front-panel access to all the
functions. It supports up to 48 user modules in addition to redundant power
supply and management access modules.
It combines different technologies in a centrally-managed rack: xDSL, fiber and
baseband.
LRS-24 offers single-point management access to the individual equipment
modules installed in the hub, and to the remote equipment units connected by
links to these modules. LRS-24 supports SNMP management, as well as
management by means of an ASCII terminal. No special software is required for
the terminal, which is controlled by the management software of the modules
installed in LRS-24.
Clock signals are distributed from an external source (station clock) to all the
equipment modules installed in the hub.
Power supply voltages are regulated and power supply redundancy ensures
continuous availability of power.
The unit supports remote (phantom) feed of equipment connected to LRS-24.
The mechanical design separates user hardware modules from interface
(connector) modules, facilitates maintenance tasks.
The form factor is suitable for installation in standard 300 mm and 600 mm
ETSI racks; can be easily adapted for installation in 19-inch racks.
The flexible modular construction and management capabilities that are available
for the equipment installed in LRS-24 enable the user to easily configure
individual systems for specific requirements and applications.

Chapter 1 Introduction
User's Manual
Remote Management
The modem cards in the LRS-24 can be remotely managed by the
RADview-HPOV/TDM SNMP management system, the PC-based RADview-PC/TDM
management system or by a dumb terminal. The same RADview application can
manage the LRS-24, modems in the hub and other RAD products.
Audible and visual indicators provide status of alarms and tests at the network,
card and port levels, and include all links connected to the hub. Alarms are
automatically logged and presented upon request, unless otherwise masked.
Management by an ASCII Terminal
LRS-24 can also be managed from an ASCII terminal connected to the dedicated
RS-232 port.
Clock
Control module CM-2 has a station clock connection enabling clock distribution to
all cards, so that all cards can be synchronized to the same station clock. Refer to
the specific card operation manual for a description of station clock support.
Power Supplies
LRS-24 operates with single or dual power supplies: AC or DC. Each power supply
supports a full rack of cards of any combination. The redundant power supply can
be replaced during operation, without affecting the system performance
(hot- swapping).
The LRS-24 chassis contains fifteen slots:
•
2 PS (Power Supply) slots, located in slots 1-2
•
1 CL slot (containing the CM-2 card), located in slot 3
•
12 Modem card slots (containing SMOD and IMOD modem cards), located in
slots numbered 10-1–10-12.
SMOD Cards
SMOD cards have their own agents. The card installed in the chassis is always an
agent. The card's mode (Central = master, Remote =slave) is configured via a
hardware jumper. The Central modem acts as the Proxy Agent for the concurrent
Remote modem, (which may be another SMOD card or a standalone Remote
modem). The IP address of the SMOD card is assigned by the LRS-24 Agent
(CM-2).
The LRS-24 chassis supports the following SMOD cards:

Since SMOD cards have their own agents, they are not affected by any changes
made to the LRS-24 agent. Changes can be made to the cards, and traps are
generated to report these changes.
IMOD Cards
IMOD cards do not have their own agents. The CM-2 card serves as the agent for
the LRS-24 and the IMOD cards. The procedures for viewing and configuring the
modem parameters are similar for all IMOD cards.
The following IMOD cards are supported:
•
ASM-40CD (LRS-24 only, version ≥ 2.5))

RADview-HPOV/TDM SNMP Management System
Both electrical and fiber optic modem cards can be managed by the
RADview-HPOV/TDM SNMP management system. All cards in the hub, except for
ASM-40CD, have remote control abilities for monitoring and/or controlling remote
units, and several types of cards contain an internal SNMP agent. In some cases,
managed cards can work opposite non-manageable modems.
RADview-HPOV management is available for modules with or without an
integrated SNMP agent, via the SNMP Control Module (CM-2). The RADview-HPOV
station is connected to LRS-24 via an integrated Ethernet connection on the
CM-2 module; CM-2 acts as a proxy SNMP agent for those cards without an
agent.
RADview-PC/TDM Management System
The RADview-PC/TDM management station communicates with LRS-24 using
out-of-band communication via Ethernet.
The RADview-PC/TDM has a windows-based Graphical User Interface (GUI)
platform for LANand WAN networks. The graphical user interface allows
configuration with easy-to-use operations on graphical representations of the
hub. The configuration can be performed at the port, card, hub and network
levels.

Connecting to the Management Station
To connect the RADview/TDM management station to LRS-24 units, use either of
the following setups:
•
Direct management connection to LRS-24 link running on Ethernet
•
Connection from management station in a LAN through an MBE to the local
standalone modem.
Direct Management Connection
In this application, the management station is connected directly to an HTU-2,
HCD-E1 or HTU-E1 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/TDM supports both public domain SLIP and
vendor SLIP.

Performance Management
This chapter discusses how RADview monitors the performance of the LRS-24
system and modems.
Performance monitoring includes the following tasks:
•
System performance monitoring
Polling the agent, manual polling
Periodic polling
•
Modem performance monitoring
Viewing and running modem diagnostics tests
Viewing interval, line, and interface performance statistics
Resetting statistics.
5.1
Monitoring System Performance (Diagnostics)
RADview/TDM LRS-24 enables you to perform system diagnostics including:
•
Polling the agent
•
Manual polling
•
Setting periodic polling.
Polling the Agent
Polling the agent updates the card status. You can execute either manual or
automatic polling of the LRS-24 system.
Polling Manually
You can execute manual (immediate) polling using the Poll Agent command,
which immediately triggers an agent to update the card status.
Note that if you have selected to perform periodic polling of the agent (see
Setting Automatic Periodic Polling), the (manual) Poll Agent command is disabled.
To manually poll and update the card status:
•
In the LRS-24 View window, from the Configuration menu, select Poll Agent.
The card status is updated immediately.

Viewing Intervals Data Table and Graph Simultaneously
Note
Both Intervals Data Table and Graph can be open at the same time (for ASMi51CD/C or ASMi-52CD/CQ/CD4W. In order to view the graph and table
simultaneously, you must open the graph dialog first.
Horizontal Axis
The horizontal axis represents Intervals from 1 to 96. Every time Refresh is
performed, the range changes (increases). (For the ASMi-52 family, the number
of entries is present in the Intervals Table.)
View Overlap
The graph features View Overlap (does not exist if only one parameter is
displayed). This is a useful feature when the graph lines overlap. Selecting the
View Overlap check box activates the View Overlap function. This causes a little
shift of the overlapping lines (on the vertical axis), so that both are visible on the
graph, (not at their exact value, due to the shift). Clearing the check box disables
the function and returns to the overlap view.

Fault Management
This chapter discusses how to manage faults for the LRS-24 system, cards, and
modems using RADview/TDM.
Managing faults includes the following tasks:
•
Managing system alarms
Updating system installation registry
Masking and listing alarm traps.
•
Managing card alarms
•
Managing modem alarms
Viewing active modem alarms
Masking modem traps.
6.1
Managing System Alarms
RADview allows you to filter system alarms. Managing system alarms includes the
following tasks:
Updating system installation registry
Masking and listing alarms.
Updating System Installation Registry
You can specify the connectivity of far-end modems to prevent generating alarm
messages from disconnected modems. See Updating System Installation Registry
in Chapter 2.
Masking and Listing Alarm Traps
You can mask the alarm traps by either masking or listing the modems.
Masking Alarm Traps
In RADview you can choose to mask alarm traps, per selected slot. However, the
“masking” functionality masks only the traps related to the selected alarm.
Masking system alarm traps (i.e. all alarms of the entire slot) prevents the
sending of alarm traps for this slot.

To light LEDs for tester use (Figure B-1):
1. Set AIS Enable jumper to ON for the near-end master modem.
2. Disconnect the IN electrical wire in the far-end modem to turn on the LEDs:
ELECTRICAL LOW in far-end modem
OPTICAL AIS in near-end modem
3. Disconnect the IN Optic wire in the near-end master modem, starting with
initial state (jumper ON).
This will turn the OPTICAL LOW LED ON in the near-end modem.
4. Disconnect both electrical wires of the far-end modem, starting with initial
state (jumper ON).
5. Connect a ‘Loop’ between the IN-OUT electrical entries of the near-end
modem.
This will turn ON the LEDs:
ELECTRICAL LOW in far-end modem
OPTICAL AIS and ELECTRICAL AIS in near-end modem.
