Electrostatic Discharge Guidelines
ESD can damage processors, circuit cards, and other electronic components. Always observe the
following precautions before installing a system component.
1. Do not remove a component from its protective packaging until ready to install it.
2. Wear a wrist grounding strap and attach it to a metal part of the system unit before handling
components. If a wrist strap is not available, maintain contact with the system unit throughout
any procedure requiring ESD protection.
3. For detailed instructions, see Static-Sensitive Equipment Handling Procedures on page 5-3.
WARNING! INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (ICS) ARE EXTREMELY SUSCEPTIBLE TO
ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE. UNLESS YOU ARE A QUALIFIED SERVICE TECHNICIAN WHO
USES TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES THAT CONFORM TO ACCEPTED INDUSTRY PRACTICES, DO
NOT HANDLE ICS.
The ESD warning label below appears on packages and storage bags that contain static-sensitive
products and components. Static electricity is always present, and using general anti-static
procedures will minimize the chances of damage to the Wide Bank.

Introduction
System Overview
System Overview
Fan Faceplate Option (FFO)
Carrier Access’ Wide Bank 28 DS3 Multiplexer provides a standards-based M1-3 multiplexing
function. This product converts a framed Digital Signal Level 3 (DS3) network connection to 28 Digital
Signal Level 1 (DS1) connections to T1 facilities, or 21 connections to E1 facilities.
The Wide Bank’s modular design provides up to seven active quad DS1 (QDSX) cards or seven active
three-channel E1 cards, and one spare circuit card (DS1 or E1), connecting from 4 to 28 DS1 (3 to 21
E1) circuits, as needed. The spare circuit card provides software-controlled redundancy of low-speed
interfaces on a 1 to 7 basis. The DS3 Controller Card provides all common electronic functions of power
conversion, processing and management, and a single DS3 interface. An optional spare DS3 Controller
card in the Wide Bank provides redundancy and protection for both electronic common equipment and
a second, redundant, DS3 network connection.
The Wide Bank does not re-frame or re-clock the connected low-speed inputs. It allows T1 or E1
framing to be provided independently by the connected communications equipment at both the nearend and the far-end of the DS3 line. Each T1 or E1 is also independently clocked within the M1-3
formatted DS3 composite. Because of independent clocking and framing capabilities for each of the T1
or E1 connections, the Wide Bank can provide asynchronous T1 or E1 to DS3 multiplexing functions.
The Wide Bank is designed for compact size (one rack unit) and convenient mounting either in standard
19-inch and 23-inch racks or on a wall. It is designed to provide total circuit redundancy and easy
maintenance. Integrated self-tests and line tests provide advanced fault isolation. SNMP, command line
interfaces, and TL1 connection allow remote management. The Wide Bank is also designed for quick
and easy installation. An optional AC to –48VDC power converter and battery backup unit provide
protected power. Cabling to the Wide Bank uses connectors to save installation labor.

Introduction
Features, Functions, and Options
DS3 Ports
There are four DS3 connections, two transmit and two receive (75 ohm unbalanced BNC) in the
redundant configuration, that make up two DS3 ports. These ports connect to two DS3 interfaces,
called Primary and Secondary (the secondary DS3 interface is optional). Each Controller card, also
called primary and secondary (the secondary Controller card is optional), has a single DS3
interface.
DS1 and E1 Ports
The Wide Bank’s low-speed ports are accessible through two 64-pin connectors. You can use two
of Carrier Access’ low speed cables to connect 28 DS1s or 21 E1s from standard low-speed patch
panels to the Wide Bank 28 DS3.
Any digital equipment may be terminated on both ends at a standard level crossconnect. The
crossconnect provides a convenient central facility for circuit rearrangements, patching, and testing.
The Wide Bank’s DS1 interfaces provide crossconnects at Digital Signal Crossconnect Level 1
(DSX-1) per ANSI T1.102. The E1 interfaces meet the crossconnect requirements of ITU-T/G.703.
Independent Clocking and Transparent Framing
Because of independent timing and transparent framing, the installation and maintenance of the
DS1 or E1 connections are easily managed. Because the Wide Bank 28 DS3 transmits DS1 or E1
streams transparently into a DS3 composite, there are no framing or timing options to set on the 28
DS1 or 21 E1 connections. The Wide Bank transparently passes the framing and clocking as
applications change. DS1 line coding, optioned as either AMI or B8ZS, is the only Wide Bank 28
DS3 T1 configuration normally needed to access DS3 carrier services. E1 line coding is fixed as
HDB3 and need not be configured to access DS3 carrier services.
By using M1-3 multiplexers, independently clocked DS1 and E1 carrier service connections can be
carried in the same DS3 line. Each Wide Bank connection derives clocking from either end of the
DS1 or E1 connection, as appropriate for the network requirements.
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 transmits all possible DS1 and E1 framing formats transparently on each
of the low-speed connections. Framing transparency allows the customer and end-carriers to frame
(or not frame) each of the low-speed connections appropriately for the voice or data application
desired. Mixed carrier services can share the same DS3 access line.
DS1 end-to-end transparency for Extended Superframe (ESF) also provides important management
capabilities from the end-carriers to the customer. The Wide Bank allows complete ESF
communications to each end of the DS1 connection.

Introduction
Features, Functions, and Options
Manageability
Carrier Access’ Wide Bank 28 DS3 Multiplexer provides configuration management and testing
and surveillance using any of the following:
Command Line Interface (CLI) through a 9-pin RS-232 CLI port
Command Line Interface using a Telnet session over a 10Base-T connection
Embedded SNMP agent over a 10Base-T Ethernet connection
NetworkValet® Enhanced Management System provides network and element management
over a 10Base-T Ethernet connection
TL1 management interface over either a 25-pin RS-232 port or a 10Base-T Ethernet
connection
TL1 Automated Outbound Alarming over either a 25-pin RS-232 port or a 10Base-T Ethernet
connection
Security
To control access to user interface functions, the Wide Bank 28 DS3 Multiplexer supports a
multiple-level user security system. Basic security, which allows users to be assigned access levels
and passwords, is supported by all Wide Banks. Enhanced security, available as the “Security
Upgrade” option, provides additional security features, including the ability to disable user
interfaces.
Basic Security
Basic security allows CLI users to be assigned access levels based on their requirements. The
access level determines which commands are available to the user. The basic security user
access levels are:
admin – The admin user has access to all commands and has the sole authority to grant
others access to the system by adding and deleting user names and passwords. There can
be only one admin user within the system.
rw (read/write) – An rw user has access to all commands except those for adding users,
deleting users, and setting user levels. The rw users are typically responsible for the dayto-day operation of the system.
ro (read only) – An ro user is limited to commands that display status and reports. The
ro access level permits technicians to monitor system operation and performance, but
prevents them from altering settings.
NOTE:
In previous releases of the Wide Bank, the security access levels were Level 1,
Level 2, and Level 3. These levels correspond to admin, rw, and ro, respectively. If you
are upgrading firmware in a Wide Bank that supports the numerical access levels, the
Level 1 user is automatically converted to admin; Level 2 users are converted to rw; and
Level 3 users are converted to ro.
Wide Bank 28 DS3 - Release 2.4

Introduction
Features, Functions, and Options
With basic security, each user can be assigned a password. If security is on and passwords have
been assigned, the login process requires both a user name and password. Users can modify
their own passwords. If passwords have not been assigned, a user name is required but no
password.
When security is off, no password is required, and each user is considered to be at the admin
level.
Security Upgrade Option
The Wide Bank’s Security Upgrade option provides enhanced security features. In addition to
the features described for basic security, the Security Upgrade option provides:
One additional user access level (secu, described below)
Restrictions on the number and types of characters allowed in user names and passwords
The ability to set a time-out value for CLI sessions
The ability to individually disable the user interface ports: Ethernet port, 9-pin RS-232
CLI port, and 25-pin RS-232 TL1 port
The ability to disable SNMP management
The ability to disable TL1 management
The user access levels available with the Security Upgrade option are:
secu – The secu user has access to all commands and has the sole authority to grant others
access to the system by adding and deleting user names and passwords. The secu user
also has sole authority to perform such functions as clearing all statistics and logs,
configuring IP settings, restoring factory default or previously saved configurations, and
configuring the TL1 interface. There can be only one secu user within the system.
admin – An admin user has access to all commands except those assigned exclusively to
the secu user. Functions available to the admin user that are not available to lower-level
users include clearing DS1 and DS3 statistics, copying a configuration from the active to
standby Controller, setting the system time and date, programming the flash memory,
saving a configuration to a TFTP server file, setting various security functions,
configuring SNMP, and copying the current configuration to temporary storage.
rw (read/write) – An rw user has access to all commands except those assigned
exclusively to the secu and admin users. The rw users are typically responsible for the
day-to-day operation of the system.
ro (read only) – An ro user is limited to commands that display status and reports. The
ro access level permits technicians to monitor system operation and performance, but
prevents them from altering settings.
NOTE: In previous releases of the Wide Bank, the security access levels were Level 1,
Level 2, and Level 3. These levels correspond to secu, rw, and ro, respectively. If you are
upgrading firmware in a Wide Bank that supports the numerical access levels, the Level 1
user is automatically converted to secu; Level 2 users are converted to rw; and Level 3
users are converted to ro.

Introduction
Management Capabilities
With the Security Upgrade option, passwords are required when security is on. Each user is
assigned a password by the secu user. Passwords can be modified only by the secu user.
When security is off, no password is required, and each user is considered to be at the secu level.
Management Capabilities
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 currently provides three management ports for full configuration and
monitoring. These ports are:
One 9-pin RS-232 port for local Command Line Interface (CLI) control
One 10Base-T Ethernet port for remote SNMP agent, NetworkValet management, Telnet
sessions, or TL1 management and Automated Outbound Alarming
One 25-pin TL1 port for management and Automated Outbound Alarming

Command Line Interface
The command line interface is a simple user interface that controls configuration and maintenance
operations. There are two ways to use the command line interface:
A VT-100 terminal (or a PC running terminal emulation software such as HyperTerminal)
connected to the 9-pin (DB9) RS-232 port. The port runs at 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit,
no parity, and no flow control.
A Telnet connection using the 10Base-T Ethernet port. To use Telnet, you must first assign
an IP address to the Wide Bank using the RS-232 interface
SNMP
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 contains an embedded SNMP v1 agent that offers the standard MIB II
(RFC 1213) in addition to the DS1/E1 MIB (RFC 1406) and the DS3 MIB (RFC 1407).
Also resident are Carrier Access’ Wide Bank 28 DS3 enterprise MIBs that provide additional MIB
objects.

The network manager can use any SNMP-compatible network management system such as
SunConnect’s SunNet Manager™, HP OpenView™, or Castle Rock’s SNMPc™ to monitor and
control the Wide Bank 28 DS3.
You can connect to the SNMP agent through the 10Base-T Ethernet port. Before using the Ethernet
port, you must set the IP, mask, gateway, and NMS addresses using the RS-232 command line
interface. See Chapter 6 for instructions on how to configure these addresses.

Introduction
Management Capabilities
NetworkValet Software
NetworkValet Enhanced Management System provides network and element management with
simple graphical user interfaces. The full-featured NetworkValet with alarms and performance
monitoring is intended for Network Operations Centers (NOCs).
NetworkValet provides easy management of Carrier Access products including the Wide Bank 28
DS3. It provides the same management functions as CLI, SNMP, and TL1. NetworkValet is a crossplatform Java application that runs on either Microsoft Windows or Solaris based computer
systems. Java Runtime Engine (JRE) software for Windows or Solaris is included with the
NetworkValet installation program.
NetworkValet sends commands over the carrier’s IP network to communicate with the SNMP agent
in the Wide Bank 28 DS3. The Wide Bank includes a standard 10Base-T Ethernet port for
connection to the hub or network interface, or laptop computer. The Wide Bank 28 DS3 must have
FLASH software version 2.00 or higher.
Transaction Language 1 (TL1)
The TL1 Interface provides surveillance and control, provisioning, and testing capabilities between
the Wide Bank 28 DS3 and remote operating systems.
Surveillance includes real-time alarm reports, event reports, threshold crossing alerts, logs,
and performance statistics. Control functions include automatic and forced switching of both
the low-speed and high-speed circuits.
Provisioning includes most of the same configuration functions available through the CLI
Testing includes the ability to initiate, terminate, and get results from all available loop tests
In addition, TL1 provides TL1 Automatic Outbound Alarm Reporting. Automatic outbound alarm
messaging is a standards-based ASCII management language defined for TL1-based operations and
support systems such as the Telcordia NMA™ network monitoring and analysis system. With this
feature, the Wide Bank 28 DS3 will integrate into TL1 alarm-managed networks to provide
notification of network and equipment conditions. TL1 is configured using the standard Wide Bank
Command Line Interface (CLI). The Wide Bank supports three simultaneous TL1 sessions via the
TCP/IP Ethernet port, one session via the RS-232/TL1 port, and one session via Telnet using the
CLI “tl1” command.

Low-Speed Connectors. Together these two 64-pin Champ type connectors support 28 DS3 or
21 E1 ports. One is designated as LOW SPEED IN, and the other is designated as LOW SPEED
OUT. The cable connecting to these ports (the same cable is used on both ports) has a male 64pin Amphenol® connector on both ends for connections between the patch panel or other
equipment, and the Wide Bank 28 DS3. (Cables are available in 10-foot and 25-foot lengths.)
DS3 Connectors. There are four DS3 connections: Primary (Active) in and out, and Secondary
(Protection) in and out, which make up two DS3 ports. Each Controller card has a single DS3
interface, so the Wide Bank 28 DS3 must have two Controller cards installed to have two DS3
ports available.
Ethernet Connector. The Ethernet interface (RJ-45) provides management access to the Wide
Bank 28 DS3. The LED associated with the Ethernet port provides a carrier-detect indicator for
the 10Base-T connection when green.
RS-232 Monitor Connector. This is an RS-232 port (DB-9 female) that can connect to a VT-100
terminal or a PC with terminal emulation software to manage the active Controller card via the
Command Line Interface (CLI).
RS-232 TL1 Connector. This is an RS-232 port (DB-25 female) for Automated Outbound
Alarming and Wide Bank management from a remote operating system.

Product Description
Connector Panel Interfaces
External Clock Connector. An external DS3 clock connector (75-ohm unbalanced BNC) is
provided for clocking the unit from an external 44.736 MHz timing source, when required.
Alarm Connector. The alarm contacts are on a 4-position wiring block connector. There are
contacts for a critical alarm and for a combined major/minor alarm. The contacts can be
programmed to be normally open or normally closed. One cable connector, which can be wired
to externally-powered alarm monitor or indicator, is provided with each Wide Bank 28 DS3. For
wiring information, see External Alarm Wiring on page 5-12.
Power Connectors. Power connections are made to the –48 VDC power connector input with a
three-position removable wiring connector. An 8-foot DC power cord is provided with each
Carrier Access Corporation 120 VAC to –48 VDC Power Converter/Battery Charger. There are
two independent power receptacles on the rear of the Wide Bank, labeled A and B. Power
connector A supplies –48 VDC to the power supply on Controller card A, and power connector B
supplies –48 VDC to the power supply on Controller card B. For wiring information, see Wiring
the Power Plugs on page 5-14.
The Controller cards are designed to provide power to each other if a power failure occurs. If only
power connector A has a power source plugged into it, the power converter for Controller card A
will supply power to the entire system including Controller card B. However, if Controller card A
is removed, Controller card B will no longer receive power. The same is true (in reverse) if only
power connector B has a power source.
WARNING! FOR REDUNDANT OPERATION BOTH CONTROLLER CARDS MUST
RECEIVE POWER AND BOTH POWER CONNECTORS MUST HAVE A POWER SOURCE
PLUGGED INTO THEM. IT IS RECOMMENDED, AND IS STANDARD PRACTICE, THAT THE
TWO –48V POWER SOURCES BE INDEPENDENT TO MAINTAIN PROPER REDUNDANCY AND
PROTECTION.

Framing Modes
Additional Functions Available in C-Bit Mode ... 2-8
DS3 Multiframe Structure ... 2-9
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 can be configured for either M23 or C-bit framing. The major difference
between M23 framing and C-bit parity framing is that M23 framing uses the C-bits to indicate stuffing,
while C-bit parity framing does not.
With M23 framing, all three C-bits in a subframe are set to one (1) if stuffing occurs, or to zero (0) if
stuffing does not occur.
C-bit parity framing does not require stuffing indication (stuffing is always present), so the C-bits are
used for other applications. These other applications and how the C-bits are used to accomplish them
are described in the following text and figures.
Additional Functions Available in C-Bit Mode
When configured for C-bit framing, the Wide Bank 28 DS3 provides the following functions, which
are not available in M23 framing:
Control of C-bit loopbacks for low-speed and DS3 using the loopup and loopdown commands
The third C-bit in M-subframe 1 provides a far-end alarm and control signal. This signal is
used to send alarm or status information from the far-end to the near-end and to initiate lowspeed and DS3 loopbacks at the far-end terminal from the near-end terminal. See Testing the
DS3 Far-End with Loopback Tests on page 7-37.
Automatic receipt of far-end alarms
The alarms are sent automatically and result in a minor alarm indication on the Wide Bank 28
DS3. See DS3 Far-End Alarms and Control (FEAC) on page 12-4.
Controlled receipt of far-end statistics and status
Separate commands for statistics and status must be issued from the Wide Bank to cause the
network to send the information. See DS3 Far-End Statistics on page 7-7.
Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) IP communication over C-bit link
This provides an IP connection over the C-bit data link instead of the Ethernet port, and
provides management access equal to the Ethernet port. See Management Interfaces on
page 8-2.
Controlled receipt of PPP link status
A command issued from the Wide Bank causes the network to send the information. See
Point-to-Point Protocol Status on page 7-8.

Product Description
Framing Modes
The Path Maintenance Data Link is a 28.2 Kbps terminal-to-terminal data link embedded in
the C-bits. See DS3 Path Maintenance Data Link on page 7-7.
The ability to send a DS3 idle code to the network
The DS3 idle code means that the DS3 is not carrying traffic
DS3 Multiframe Structure
The DS3 signal is partitioned into multiframes (M-frames) of 4760 bits each. The M-frames are
divided into seven M-subframes, each having 680 bits. Each M-subframe is further divided into
eight blocks of 85 bits, 84 of which are payload and one bit for frame overhead.
The structure of the DS3 multiframe is the same for both M23 and C-bit framing. As stated above,
the C-bits are used for different purposes.
Figure 2-2 shows how the frame is structured with the C-bits highlighted. Figures 2-5 through 2-8
provide details about the individual subframes.

X-Bits - Error Message from Far-End to Near-End
The X-bits, located in the first bit position of both M-subframe 1 and M-subframe 2 (see Figure
2-2), are both set to zero (0) if a Loss-of Signal (LOS), Out-of-Frame (OOF), or Alarm
Indication Signal (AIS) is detected at the far-end during any one-second interval. This signal is
transmitted to the near-end for one second, then the X-bits return to their normal condition (both
ones). X-bit states of 01 or 10 are abnormal and are ignored by the near-end.
Application Identification Channel (AIC) Bit
The first C-bit in M-subframe 1, the AIC bit, indicates whether the far-end equipment is set for
C-bit parity framing (1), or M23 framing (random 1s and 0s). See Figure 2-3.

Far End Alarm (FEA) Bit
The FEA bit is used for two purposes: (1) as a far-end channel to send alarm and status
information from the far-end to the near-end, and (2) to initiate from the near-end, DS3 and lowspeed loopbacks at the far end terminal. A 16-bit code is transmitted serially over this one-bit
channel, least-significant (right-end) bit first, to indicate one of eleven conditions. The format
of the 16-bit code is: 0XXXXXX0 11111111 (where X can be a 1 or a 0).

CP Bits
The three C-bits of Subframe 3, called the CP bits, are used to transport DS3 parity information.
At the DS3 transmit location, they are set to the same value as the P-bits of Subframes 3 and 4.
See Figure 2-4 and Figure 2-5.
P-Bits
The first bit of both Subframes 3 and 4 are called P-bits. They are used as parity indication bits
for information bits, and are monitored for indications of DS3 signal errors. See Figure 2-4 and
Figure 2-5.
Far-End Block Error (FEBE) Bits
If an incoming path error (framing error or parity error) is detected at the receiving side, the
three FEBE bits are set to any combination of 1s and 0s except 111, and sent to the far-end
terminal. A setting of 111 means there are no framing or parity errors. See Figure 2-5.

Critical and Major/Minor Alarm Definitions
Table 2-2 lists the events that cause critical and major/minor alarms. Any one of the critical alarm
events cause the Critical Alarm LED to light red, activate the critical alarm relay contacts, and
record appropriate log entries. Any one of the major/minor alarm events cause the Major/Minor
Alarm LED to light red (major) or yellow (minor), activate the major/minor alarm relay contacts,
and record appropriate log entries. When the alarm event no longer exists, the LED and the relay
contacts revert to the non-active state but the log entries remain.
Line Code Violations and Bipolar Violations
Line Code Violations (LCV) are used to determine alarm events that are typically a result of
deteriorating transmission line integrity. The calculation of LCVs, and Bit Error Rate (BER) in
the Wide Bank 28 DS3 is as follows:
BPV (Bipolar Violations). The occurrence of a pulse of the same polarity that is not part of a
zero suppression signature.
EXZ (Excessive Zeros). A string of more than 3 consecutive zeros for E1 and DS3 data, or 7
consecutive zeros for DS1 B8ZS, or 15 consecutive zeros for DS1 AMI
LCV. Total number of BPVs and EXZs.
BER. Number of LCVs in time window divided by number of bits in time window.
LCVs are also used to determine when a DS3 switching event takes place (DS3 threshold).
SeeDS3 THRESHOLD on page 8-42.
NOTE:
When DS3 protect is turned on and there is a bit error rate (BER) exceeding
1x10 , the active Controller executes a protection switch to the standby Controller
regardless of the DS3 threshold setting.

Protection Modes
The Wide Bank can be provisioned with one or two Controller cards and connections to one or two
DS3 lines to provide the following levels of protection:
Electronics Protection – When provisioned with two Controller cards and only one DS3 line,
only the Controller cards can be protected.
Electronics and Network Protection – When provisioned with two Controller cards and two
independent DS3 lines, both the Controller cards and the DS3 lines can be protected.
Electronics Protection Mode
In this mode there are two Controllers available to the Wide Bank but only one DS3 line.
The electronics mode of protection provides Controller card redundancy. Because there is only one
DS3 connected, there is no DS3 redundancy. The receive path from the DS3 line is simultaneously
applied to the receiver of both Controller cards (see Figure 2-8). This enables both Controllers to
monitor the condition of the DS3 line so both are continuously framed up to the incoming signal.
The controller-select signal disables the outputs of the low-speed receive paths on the standby
Controller and enables the low-speed receive paths on the active Controller. The active Controller’s
transmit signal is connected to the transmit path of the DS3 line through a relay, while the standby
is disconnected until a protection switch occurs.
The automatic redundancy mode is used to enable and disable protection switching. If arm is
enabled (arm on), and the redundancy control process determines the active Controller is
malfunctioning, or a maintenance switch is invoked (the switch command), a protection switch will
occur. This means that the active Controller relinquishes control to the secondary Controller. This
is done by enabling the standby Controller’s receive path and disabling the originally active
Controller’s low-speed receive path (controller-select signal) and switching the output paths so that
the transmit path of the DS3 line is connected to the standby Controller. Service interruptions (hits)
will be taken on both the DS3 and low-speed connections during this type of switch. However,
because the standby Controller is already framed up to the incoming signal, the hits are minimal.

Protection) but if the currently active Controller malfunctions, another protection switch will occur.
If revertive switching is not enabled (revertive ds3 off), no protection switch-back will occur.
NOTE: Revertive switching (revertive ds3 on) has different effects for Electronic
Protection and Electronic and Network Protection. Please read both descriptions to
determine the differences.
Setting the Arm and Revertive Software Switches
Arm and revertive are interactive. They interact as follows:
Arm and revertive can both be on (factory default)
Turning revertive on also turns arm on
Arm can be on when revertive is off
If both arm and revertive are on, you cannot turn arm off (arm off command) without first
turning revertive off (revertive ds3 off command)
If both arm and revertive are off, an arm on command only turns on arm
If both arm and revertive are off, a revertive ds3 on command turns on both arm and

Controller and DS3 Redundancy
Electronics and Network Protection Mode
The highest level of protection, electronics and network protection, allows both the Controller cards
and the DS3 lines to be switched. This mode is available with two Controllers and two active DS3
lines. Switching must be enabled (arm on) and protection must be enabled (DS3 protect on).In this
mode, the primary Controller is connected to the primary DS3 line and the secondary Controller is
connected to the secondary DS3 line. The low-speed transmit streams are multiplexed, framed and
simultaneously broadcast on both the primary and secondary DS3 lines, thus transmitting the
identical payload to the far-end service and protection line. Also, each Controller is framed up to its
respective DS3 line and the controller-select signal determines which Controller has access to the
low-speed cards, and thus carries the service.

If the active Controller malfunctions, the DS3 line condition deteriorates, or a maintenance switch
is invoked (the switch command), a protection switch will occur. The Wide Bank will enable the
secondary DS3 path through the other Controller card. If revertive switching is enabled (revertive
ds3 on), there will be a five minute delay (beginning when the previously-active Controller’s error
rate equals zero). Then the Wide Bank will switch back to the previously-active Controller and DS3
line, provided that there is no longer a malfunction in that path during the five-minute delay. If
revertive switching is not enabled (revertive ds3 off), no switch-back will occur.

Product Description
Controller and DS3 Redundancy
The Wide Bank switching performance complies with Telcordia TR-TSY-752, paragraph 8.4, subparagraph 1, which states that no more than 10 bit errors are caused by the switching operation, and
also that the switching operation is accomplished within 250 ns.
The threshold at which DS3 switching takes place is determined by an LCV count within a certain
length of time. This threshold can be set for different values using the DS3 threshold command,
which is explained in detail in DS3 in Chapter 8. For a definition of LCVs, see Line Code Violations
and Bipolar Violations on page 2-15.
NOTE:
After a power cycle or switching event, switching cannot occur again until the
original Controller and DS3 line have experienced five minutes of error-free operation. The
five-minute delay is built-in, and conforms to standards to prevent oscillation during poor
DS3 line conditions.
Operator-Initiated Switch
A switch of Controllers can be initiated manually by using the switch command. At the prompt,
enter the switch command:
(A: Active)> switch
If the secondary Controller is fully functional, the switch is initiated immediately.
If the secondary Controller is considered non-functional by the processor, a prompt will ask to
continue. If the choice is to continue with the switch, the switch is initiated unless the secondary
Controller is experiencing catastrophic failure, in which case the switch is aborted. If revertive
switching is enabled in network protection mode, the switch will last only five minutes. The Wide
Bank will then switch back to the original state if the originally active path is error-free.
Restoring to Original Status (Revertive Switching)
Once a switch has occurred, another switch back to the original status (revertive switching) can
sometimes occur, depending on certain configurations and equipment status, described below.
Revertive Switching with Electronics Protection
When using electronics protection (two Controller cards and one DS3 line), a switch to the
standby Controller card cannot revert automatically. After five minutes automatic protection
switching is rearmed, allowing another switch if subsequent errors occur. Without errors, a
switch back to the originally active Controller card must be initiated using a switch command.
Revertive Switching with Electronics and Network Protection
When using network protection (two Controller cards and two DS3 lines), switching can be
configured so that it can automatically revert to original state (after five minutes of error-free
operation on the original Controller). Then the original Controller and the original DS3 line
again carry the traffic. To configure revertive switching, set revertive ds3 on and arm on.

Product Description
Controller and DS3 Redundancy
To configure network protection mode for non-revertive (one-shot) switching, set revertive ds3
off and arm on. Once a switch occurs with this configuration, switching back requires a manual
switch (switch command) or a configuration change.
To configure electronics protection or network protection modes for no automatic switching,
set revertive ds3 off and arm off. With this configuration a switch will occur only if there is a
catastrophic equipment failure or a manual switch is initiated.
NOTE:
To facilitate testing of automatic switching, you can reset the five minute delay
(wait-to-restore time) by using the clear wtr command.

Low-Speed Automatic Switchover
The Wide Bank provides low-speed circuit monitoring and automatic switchover to a spare lowspeed circuit card when an error is detected. When an error is detected, traffic is automatically
switched to a spare low-speed circuit in the same circuit group. The status LED indicator on the
spare circuit will change from yellow to green, and the LED on the failed circuit will turn off. When
the failed circuit is replaced (see Hot-Swapping a Failed Standard Low-Speed Card on page 2-27)
the traffic is switched back to the original circuits, leaving the spare card available for subsequent
error switching.
Any traffic carried by the spare circuits will be dropped when a failed standard low-speed circuit
card is removed. Any traffic carried by the spare circuits will not be dropped when a failed MSO
Electronics card is removed, provided that the spare is not already in use before pulling failed MSO
card.
Low-Speed Circuit Groups
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 employs a one to seven (1:7) electronics redundancy scheme using four
spare DS1 circuits (or three spare E1 circuits) to protect up to 28 active DS1 circuits (or 21 active
E1 circuits). Circuit groups are arranged so that each of the circuits on the spare card can replace a
corresponding circuit on each of the seven active cards (see Figure 2-1 Functional Block Diagram
on page 2-4 and Table 2-3 Low-Speed Circuit Groups for Spare Switching on page 2-23).
Switchover Lockouts Within Groups
A resource conflict occurs when more than one circuit fails in the same low-speed circuit group.
Because redundancy is limited to one spare per circuit group, a second failed circuit within the same
group is not covered, so it will be locked out.
If a second failure occurs in the same circuit group, automatic switchover will not occur and
the second failed circuit will not be spared. A minor failure alarm will be activated for the
second failed circuit, and its card status LED will turn red.

Product Description
Low-Speed (LS) Redundancy
Pulling or “hot-swapping” a card when circuit failures exist on other cards produces the following
lockout behavior, depending on the card type.
If a Standard card is pulled when the spare is already being used, all four circuits on the
Standard card will be dropped. The spare circuits will not be affected.
If an MSO Electronics card is pulled when the spare is already being used, the low-speed
circuits using the spare will be kicked off the spare and will be dropped. All four circuits on
the pulled card will be moved to the spare card.

Maintenance Service Option (MSO)
In addition to the circuit failure protection provided by Standard DS1 and E1 cards, MSO DS1 and
E1 cards will automatically switch low-speed service to the spare card when the electronics are
manually removed from a system. With MSO cards, the service interruption time is less than 50
milliseconds compared to 15 seconds when replacing standard cards.
The Maintenance Service Option (MSO) low-speed circuit card is made up of two separating
sections called the MSO Electronics card and the MSO Relay card. By separating these sections, a
customer can replace the one-to-four (or one-to-three for E1) failed DS1/E1 electronic circuits of
that MSO Electronics card while the MSO Relay card automatically maintains the four DS1 (three
E1) circuits by switching them to the spare low-speed circuit card. Once new MSO Electronics are
inserted and pass self-test, the four circuits (three E1) currently on the spare card are automatically
switched back to the “home” circuits.
With MSO Relay section
installed in chassis, the
MSO Electronics section
can be removed without
interrupting service
MSO card assembly,
comprising an MSO Electronics
section and an MSO Relay
section, replaces standard

Figure 2-10 MSO Electronics and MSO Relay Cards
When joined together, the MSO Electronics and MSO Relay cards fit the same form-factor of the
standard low-speed card. Therefore, the MSO DS1 or E1 card is compatible with all Wide Bank 28
DS3 systems. The MSO Electronics card contains all the necessary electronics for full operation of
all four circuits of the MSO Quad DS1 card or all three circuits of the MSO E1 card. This section

is replaceable by itself (see Chapter 9 for replacement instructions). The MSO Relay card contains
the necessary relays to switch the traffic either to the MSO Electronics card or to the spare lowspeed card, as required. The Relay card is only replaceable when combined with the electronics card
as a unit to form the MSO DS1 or E1 card.
WARNING! DO NOT INSERT THE RELAY SECTION OF THE CARD BY ITSELF. THE
RELAY SECTION AND THE ELECTRONICS SECTION MUST BE LATCHED TOGETHER AS A
UNIT FOR ADDED STRENGTH WHEN INSERTING IT INTO THE CARD SLOT CONNECTOR.
You can upgrade a non-MSO Wide Bank to an MSO system. The items necessary to upgrade to
MSO functionality are:
1. The desired number of MSO low-speed circuit cards (up to 8) to replace the standard low-speed
circuit cards.
2. A code update.
The release code for MSO support is Rev 1.47 or higher and is available for both FLASH-based
systems and EPROM-based systems. The FLASH-based systems will support software code
updates via both TFTP and XMODEM. The EPROM-based systems require a new EPROM
integrated circuit (IC) from Carrier Access Corporation. Both systems, if redundant, will
maintain live traffic and configurations while the off-line Controller is updated.
The low-speed circuit card residing in the spare low-speed circuit card position can be either a
Standard low-speed circuit card or an MSO low-speed circuit card.

Product Description
Low-Speed (LS) Redundancy
Failures that Cause a Low-Speed Switchover
The Wide Bank checks for the following events every 200 milliseconds, and if one or more of them
occur, initiates a low-speed switchover.
Transmitter Failure. A transmitter failure is declared when:
1. There is a lack of activity on the transmit clock.
2. There is a lack of activity on the transmit tip and ring outputs (either or both). This
event is ignored if AMI line coding is selected.
System Clock Failure. When there are no transitions on the master clock of a low-speed card,
a failure is declared for all four DS1 (three E1) circuits on the card.
Write/Read/Verify Failure. If the Controller cannot correctly read and write certain test
registers on a DS1 card, it declares a failure for that card.
Receiver Failure. This failure can be caused by either a low-speed receiver failure or an
external failure of the low-speed line. This failure is declared when there is either no receive
activity (Loss of Signal, or LOS) for 2.5 seconds or a Major Line Code Violation (Major
LCV). After the switchover, if no signal improvement is seen, the traffic is automatically
returned back to the original circuits to retain the availability of the spare.
Enabling and Disabling Low-Speed Switchovers
The low-speed automatic switchovers can be either enabled or disabled for all circuits by using the
ds1 protect or ls protect commands. The factory default setting of low-speed protection is ON. For
more information see LSMODE on page 8-58.
Example:
To disable automatic switchovers for all low-speed circuits:
(A:Active)> ds1 protect off
or
(A:Active)> ls protect off
To enable automatic switchovers for all low-speed circuits:
(A:Active)> ds1 protect on
or
(A:Active)> ls protect on

Product Description
Low-Speed (LS) Redundancy
Restoring to Original Status (Revertive Switching)
Because some circuit failures can look like line failures (LOS or Major LCV), the Wide Bank
provides a revertive switching feature to keep spares available for use by other circuits.
When a line failure occurs, the Wide Bank will move the channel to the spare circuit. If the failure
remains, the problem is a line failure, so the channel is moved back to the home circuit. However,
if the failure clears on the spare circuit, the next action depends on the revertive ds1 setting.
Revertive Off – the channel will remain on the spare circuit until you replace the home card or
manually move the channel back to the home circuit.
Revertive On – a self-test will be performed on the home circuit and one of the following actions
will occur:
Self-Test Fails – the channel will remain on the spare circuit until you replace the home card
or manually move the channel back to the home circuit.
Self-Test Passes – the channel will be moved home after 2 minutes. However, if three failures
occur within a 24-hour period, the low-speed circuit will be locked out and will remain on the
spare card. If fewer than three failures occur on the same circuit within 24 hours, the failure
count will decrement by 1 each day until the count is again zero. If desired, you can reset the
locked-out circuit (revertive ds1 reset), which will move the channel back to the home circuit.
Hot-Swapping a Failed Standard Low-Speed Card
CAUTION! THIS PROCEDURE CAN CAUSE DROPPED CALLS ON THE LOW-SPEED
CIRCUITS THAT HAVE BEEN SWITCHED OVER BY AUTOMATIC ELECTRONIC REDUNDANCY.
A standard (non-MSO) low-speed card that causes a switchover can be hot-swapped (swapped with
power on) but any calls on the circuits to the failed card, including those that were switched to the
spare low-speed card, will be dropped. The circuits will become active again as soon as the new
card has completed self-tests, and the previously switched failing channel will be switched back to
the new card. The spare card circuit is now unused and available.
Hot-Swapping a Failed MSO Low-Speed Card
The Maintenance Service Option (MSO) low-speed card consists of two separating portions, the
MSO Relay card and the MSO Electronics card. The MSO low-speed card allows the failed DS1 or
E1 Electronic circuits of that card to be replaced while the MSO Relay portion automatically
maintains service on the spare low-speed card. Once a new MSO Electronics card is inserted and
passes self-test, the circuits currently on the spare card are automatically switched back to the
“home” circuit.
Priority of service on the spare low-speed card is always given to those DS1 or E1 circuits from the
first MSO Electronics card removed from the system. Because removing an MSO Electronics card
requires four spare DS1 circuits (three E1) to be available, only one MSO card can be removed at
a time (see Low-Speed (LS) Redundancy on page 2-22). If any of the spares are already in use by
Wide Bank 28 DS3 - Release 2.4
July 2004
2-27
Product Description
Low-Speed (LS) Redundancy
other cards, there will be a conflict for resources. The conflict results in any circuits previously
switched to the spare low-speed card (and still present there) to be switched back to their home lowspeed cards. If the home low-speed cards are not able to maintain the circuits, the circuits will be
dropped.
MSO Conflicts with Spare Card
If you remove more than one MSO Electronics card section from a Wide Bank, there will not
be enough spares to maintain traffic. This conflict will cause all low-speed circuits handled by
the removed electronic sections to be dropped. To resolve the conflict, re-insert all the MSO
Electronics card sections, then remove and replace only one card at a time, starting with the card
containing the failed low-speed circuits. Removing the relay sections of the MSO cards will
also resolve the conflict but will not restore dropped circuits.

Transmission Path Verification
Verification of transmission data paths is a unique self-diagnostic capability of the Wide Bank 28
DS3. The low-speed transceivers include a pseudo-random bit sequence (PRBS unframed 215-1 as
defined by ITU -T O.151) generator, detector, and bit error counter. Because these have the
flexibility of being placed in either the receive or transmit low-speed stream, several Bit Error Rate
test modes are available, in conjunction with the DS3 Framer. Individual DS1 or E1 bit error rate
testing may be conducted toward the low-speed equipment (the “drop”), in the DS3 line, or
internally to the Wide Bank (part of self-test). Following activation of the PRBS pattern generation,
received pattern synchronization is displayed along with bit error rate counts for the low-speed
circuits under test.

Low-Speed Metallic Loopback
The low-speed metallic loopback loops the received low-speed signal back to the low-speed
transmit using a relay. This Carrier Access Corporation-unique loopback provides “point-ofentry” fault-isolation between the Wide Bank and attached DS1 or E1 equipment to detect DS1
or E1 line problems.
A spare low-speed card is required to provide metallic loopbacks toward the low-speed
connections. The metallic loopback function may not be available if the spare low-speed
channels are in use. If this is the case, the Wide Bank will not execute a metallic loopback on
the low-speed channel requested. Also, only four low-speed channels (in different spare
groups) can be selected for metallic loopback at one time.

C-bit FEAC Loopback Code Word Detection
When the Wide Bank is configured for C-bit framing mode, the DS3 monitors and detects lowspeed loopback requests sent over the C-bit far-end alarm and control signal. When a low-speed
loopback code word is received an equipment loopback is activated (see Low-Speed Equipment
Loopback Mode on page 2-30).
NIU Loopcode Detection
Each low-speed circuit on the Wide Bank can monitor and detect Network Interface Unit (NIU)
loopback codes originating from the DS3 network. A standard 5 second integration time to declare
loop-up or loop-down codes is used. Upon detecting an NIU loop-up code on a DS1 or E1 channel
of the DS3, a low-speed equipment loopback will be executed by the Wide Bank for that channel.
This provides for standard loop testing from the DS3 end, as if a physical DS1 or E1 NIU (“Smart
Jack”) was connected to each of the 28 DS1s or each of the 21 E1s.

DANGER! WHEN INSTALLING THE WIDE BANK, BE SURE TO OBSERVE STANDARD
SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR WORKING WITH ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT.
Rack mounting is the only recommended method for mounting the Wide Bank. The different
recommended configurations for rack mounting are:
Standard, non-FFO units:
Horizontal mounting in a 19-inch or 23-inch rack. This method is limited by specific guidelines
described in the mounting procedures that follow.
Vertical mounting in a 19-inch or 23-inch rack. This method allows up to 24 units to be mounted
in a single rack, depending on environmental factors.
FFO-equipped units:
Horizontal mounting is the only recommended configuration for FFO-equipped units. FFOequipped units do not require a 1 RU space between units, which results in the highest density
installation method.
Before mounting the Wide Bank chassis, ensure that the installation site meets the following criteria:
Adequate clearance for maintenance access, cable routing, and air flow to cool the unit. Allow
approximately 30 inches in front of the removable control panel for maintenance and accessing
the slide-in cards. Allow approximately 24 inches in the rear for cable access and bending radius.
Because the cables on the Power Converter/Battery Charger total 12 feet in length, there should
be a properly grounded, 120 VAC power outlet within 11 feet of the Wide Bank power connectors,
unless power is supplied by other power conversion equipment that has longer cables.
A stable environment, clean and free from extremes of temperature, shock, vibration, and EMI,
with a relative humidity between 0 and 98%.
An appropriate ambient air temperature for the mounting method used. The Wide Bank 28 DS3
operates throughout the NEBS operating temperature range unless otherwise specified in the
installation descriptions below.
NOTE:
If the operating temperature rises above 176 º F (80 º C), an Over-Temperature
alarm is generated. When the temperature is reduced below 176 º F (80 º C), the OverTemperature alarm will clear.

Attaching Mounting Brackets to the Units
The included Universal Heavy-Duty Brackets (Carrier Access part number 710-0153) can be used
to mount the Wide Bank in either 19-inch or 23-inch racks, with either 1 3/4-inch or 2-inch vertical
hole spacing. These brackets are made up of four individual pieces. The following procedures show
how to assemble the brackets and attach them to a Wide Bank.
1. There are two bracket parts with right-angle bends (see Figure 4-1). Mount one of these on each
side of the Wide Bank to obtain the desired offset, as shown in Figure 4-2, using the #6 x 3/8inch mounting screws provided. Use the Wide Bank mounting holes nearest the front of the unit
to produce a typical flush mounting. Use the Wide Bank mounting holes nearest the rear of the
unit for a 5-inch or center offset to the front.
2. If you are mounting the Wide Bank in a 23-inch rack, fasten the other two bracket pieces to the
previously-mounted brackets, as shown in Figure 4-1, using the four 10-32 x 3/4" machine
screws provided.
3. Mount the chassis and bracket assembly on the rack, using 10-32 x 3/4" rack-mounting screws
in a manner appropriate for the selected mounting arrangement. See Rack Mounting - Non-FFO
Equipped Units on page 4-6 or Rack Mounting - FFO-Equipped Units on page 4-9, as required.

mounted with less than one rack unit of space between them must have
the FFO option installed.
FUSE PANEL
FUSE PANEL
With FFO the Wide Bank meets NEBS thermal performance criteria for
installation of up to 40 units per rack with no space between units (see
Figure 4-5 and Figure 4-7).
Fan Faceplate Option
The Fan Faceplate Option provides additional cooling capacity to
allow the Wide Banks to be mounted with no space between them.
When fan faceplates are installed, the fan power connectors on the
faceplates mate with power connectors on the Controller cards (see
Figure 4-6). When installing a faceplate, use care to ensure correct
alignment of the power connectors before tightening the fastening
screws at each end of the faceplate. Also, the fastening screws must
be tightened with an adequate tool for compliance with UL 1950. Do
not overtighten.
The fans start operating 30 seconds after the FFO is installed.

Mounting the Power Converter/Battery Charger
The Wide Bank can be supplied with power for US operation with the optional 115 VAC to –48 VDC
Power Converter/Battery Charger. This converter includes both a six-foot grounded AC power cord and
a six-foot three-position DC power cable. The Power Converter/Battery Charger has four mounting
holes for attaching the unit to a wall or other flat surface. To mount the Power Converter/Battery
Charger on a nearby wall, locate the converter within 5.5 feet of the Wide Bank rear connector panel
and use screws or anchors appropriate for the mounting surface.
When using a single power converter, the power connectors shipped with the Wide Bank must be “daisy
chained” to supply power to both the A and B power input connectors.
Mounting the Battery Unit
Wall-Mounting the Battery Unit ... 4-11
Rack Mounting the Power Converter & Battery Unit ... 4-14
The Wide Bank power supply redundancy can be supplemented by using a Carrier Access Corporation
–48V Battery unit. The battery unit is kept charged by the Power Converter/Battery Charger. When AC
power fails, the battery unit supplies continuous –48 VDC power for six to eight hours, depending on
operational status, the condition of the batteries, and the ambient temperature. A single 6-foot DC power
cable connects the battery unit to the Power Converter/Battery Charger.
Wall-Mounting the Battery Unit
To mount the battery unit on a nearby wall, locate the battery unit within 5.5 feet of the Power
Converter/Battery Charger and use screws or anchors appropriate to the mounting surface. To
mount the battery unit on a 3/4-inch piece of plywood, use four #8 x 3/4-inch pan-head wood
screws. See Figure 4-8.
1. Using the template included with the battery unit, clearly mark the locations of the four screws
on the plywood. If this template is misplaced, a scaled-down copy of the template, with
dimensions, is included in Figure 4-8.
DANGER! DO NOT DRILL THE PILOT HOLES SO LARGE THAT THE SCREW THREADS
WILL NOT HOLD. IF THE BATTERY UNIT SHOULD FALL, IT CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY
OR DAMAGE. THE CORRECT SIZE DRILL BIT FOR #8 WOOD SCREWS IS 7/64 INCH (1/8
INCH MAXIMUM).
2. Pre-drill pilot holes for all four screws using a drill bit of appropriate size for the screws you
are using. This is necessary because the holes are so close to the battery case that it is difficult
to drive the screws into the plywood.

3. Drive the lower two #8 x 3/4-inch pan-head wood screws into the lower pilot holes until the
heads are within 1/8 inch of the plywood (see enlargement in Figure 4-8). DO NOT drive the
screws until the heads seat on the plywood.
4. Carefully lift the battery unit and hang it on the two screws installed in step 3, using the two
keyhole screw slots in the lower corners of the battery unit back plate.
DANGER! DO NOT RELEASE THE BATTERY UNIT UNTIL STEP 5 (BELOW) IS
COMPLETED. IF THE BATTERY UNIT SHOULD FALL, IT CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR
DAMAGE.
5. Fasten the top of the battery unit to the plywood with two #8 x 3/4” pan-head wood screws in
the upper pilot holes.

Static-Sensitive Equipment Handling Procedures
Static-Sensitive Equipment Handling Procedures
CAUTION! THE WIDE BANK CONTAINS CIRCUIT CARDS AND COMPONENTS THAT
ARE SUBJECT TO DAMAGE BY ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE (ESD). ALWAYS USE THE
FOLLOWING PROCEDURE WHENEVER HANDLING PLUG-IN CIRCUIT CARDS.
NOTE:
A grounding wrist strap consists of an electrically conductive elastic wrist band
with a grounding wire for connection to the equipment chassis or a common ground point.
Static electricity is always present and is easily picked up from shoes and clothing. Using anti-static
procedures will minimize the chances of damaging sensitive semiconductor components.
1. Wear a grounding wrist strap whenever handling, touching, inspecting, installing, or removing
plug-in circuit cards.
2. Test the grounding wrist strap before using.
Use an ohmmeter to check the resistance of a grounding wrist strap.
-
Connect one meter lead to wrist strap.
Connect other meter lead to metal clip or banana plug at end of grounding wire.
A resistance of one megohm to ten megohms (megohm = one million ohms) is typical and
will provide adequate protection to equipment and user.
DO NOT use the wrist strap if the resistance is more than 35 megohms because it will not
protect the equipment from ESD damage.
DO NOT use the wrist strap if the resistance is less than 0.75 megohms (750,000 ohms)
because it will not protect you from high voltage shock hazards.
3. Before touching a circuit card, momentarily touch the grounded equipment rack or chassis to
discharge any static buildup.
4. Before inserting or removing a circuit card from a storage bag, momentarily ground or hold the
anti-static plastic storage bag to discharge any static buildup.
5. Do not touch any components or printed wiring on the circuit card. Hold the card by its edges
or plastic handles.
6. Always store circuit cards in an anti-static storage bag. Whenever possible, use the same storage
bag the card or replacement card came in.
7. If a circuit card is to be returned to the factory, always ship the circuit card inside an anti-static
storage bag.

Cable and Wiring Layout
The figure below shows a typical cable and wiring layout for the Wide Bank 28 DS3. Tie-down loops
are provided on the left and right side of the connector panel for tieing down cables and wires. Because
the low-speed connectors are located in the center of the panel, it is easiest to dress the low-speed cables,
Ethernet, ground, and alarm wiring toward the left side of the chassis (as viewed from rear), with the
remaining cables and power wires dressed toward the right side, as shown.
NOTE:
Ferrite Cube RFI Suppressors are Carrier Access part number 010-0051.
NOTE: DSX-1 cables require two ferrite RFI/EMI
suppressors per cable for DS1 circuits, as shown.
E1 circuits require three suppressors per cable.

Ground Connection
Ground Connection
When the Wide Bank is connected to a power source other than the Carrier Access Power Converter/
Battery Charger, a separate ground wire must be connected to a Common Bonding Network (CBN). A
recommended method to make this connection is shown below.
CAUTION! CHASSIS MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED FOR COMPLIANCE WITH
NEBS 1089 EMI/EMC AND FCC REQUIREMENT PART 15, FOR POWER GROUNDING
AND TO PREVENT RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE WITH OTHER EQUIPMENT.
1. Measure and cut enough wire to connect from building ground to grounding lug on the
connector panel of the Wide Bank. Use #14 to #6 AWG insulated copper wire, as required by
grounding practice.
2. Route wire from building ground to Wide Bank connector panel. Bend wire to position it near
chassis ground studs, as shown in the figure.
3. Obtain a ground lug with crimp or compression clamp for attaching ground wire. Do not use
solder, quick-connect or friction-fit connectors.
4. Strip enough insulation off wire end to fit inside the ground lug, flush with front of wire
compression clamp.
5. Apply an anti-oxidant compound to the lug’s crimp or pressure connector and to the chassis
bonding surface.
6. Insert ground wire into ground lug and clamp wire securely using crimp tool or compression
tool.
7. Remove lug nuts and lock washers (included) from chassis ground studs.
8. Position ground lug over chassis ground studs and install a star or lock washer.
9. Attach lug nuts and tighten to 0.8 foot-pound (1.086 Nm).

DC Power Connector Input Requirements
CAUTION! BOTH POWER INPUTS MUST BE CONNECTED WHEN THE WIDE BANK IS
EQUIPPED WITH TWO CONTROLLER CARDS. IF ONLY ONE CONTROLLER IS POWERED,
SERVICE WILL BE INTERRUPTED WHEN THE POWERED CONTROLLER IS REMOVED OR ITS
INTERNAL POWER CONVERTER FAILS.
WARNING! THE POWER CONNECTOR INPUT IS FOR –48 VDC POWER ONLY. THE
POWER AND GROUND WIRES IN THE SUPPLY CABLE MUST BE EITHER 16 AWG OR 18
AWG WIRE. THE POWER SUPPLIED TO THE WIDE BANK MUST BE EXTERNALLY
PROTECTED BY A THREE-AMP CIRCUIT BREAKER OR SLOW-BLOW FUSE IN THE –48 VDC
BRANCH CIRCUIT.
WARNING! WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER FAILURES RESULTING FROM LONG-TERM
OPERATION WITH POWER APPLIED TO ONLY ONE OF THE REDUNDANT CONTROLLER
CARDS.
NOTE:
Carrier Access strongly recommends that power always be applied to both
power input connectors even if the unit is equipped with only one Controller card. Powering
both connectors allows Controller cards to be inserted into either card slot, enables quick
installation of a redundant Controller, and also speeds card replacement and software
upgrades without losing the current configuration settings.
The Wide Bank has two three-pin DC power connector inputs located on the rear connector panel
(see Figure 5-1). Connector A supplies –48 VDC to Controller card A, and connector B supplies
–48 VDC to Controller card B.
If two Controller cards are installed for redundant operation, both power connectors, A and B, must
be connected to a –48 VDC power source to prevent service interruptions in the event of a power
failure or Controller failure. If redundant power sources are not available, both power connectors
can be wired to the same source.

Electrical Installation and Cabling
Power Wiring
The Wide Bank is designed to provide redundant power input protection and redundant power
converter protection. For example, if Controller card A loses –48 VDC input power or if its power
converter fails, Controller card B will continue to provide power to all circuits in the Wide Bank.
Prolonged operation with only one power input will reduce reliability.
To conform with UL 1950 third edition, and CSA-C22.2 No. 950-95 Standard for Safety for
Information Technology Equipment, the Wide Bank is equipped with solid-state, automaticresetting, current-limiting devices to protect the –48V input and DC return from AC power surges,
lightning, or inductive motor spikes. There are no fuses in the Wide Bank.
Wiring the Power Plugs
Two power plugs are shipped with each Wide Bank for wiring to a –42 to –58 VDC power supply
as described in the following procedure.
DANGER! ENSURE THAT NO POWER IS PRESENT ON THE THREE WIRES FROM THE
POWER SOURCE.
1. Use only 16 AWG or 18 AWG copper wire.
2. Strip the three wires from the power source so that 5/16-inch of bare wire is exposed.
WARNING! BE SURE TO WIRE THE CONNECTOR CORRECTLY, AS DESCRIBED IN
THIS PROCEDURE. WIRING –48 V TO THE WRONG TERMINAL CAN SEVERELY DAMAGE
THE EQUIPMENT OR POWER SUPPLY.
3. Loosen the set screws and insert the wires in the appropriate square holes as shown below, one
at a time, tightening the set screws as you go. When inserting wires, ensure that no bare wire is
exposed.

CAUTION! WHEN A CARRIER ACCESS POWER CONVERTER/BATTERY CHARGER
IS USED, THE WIDE BANK IS GROUNDED THROUGH THE POWER PLUG (PIN 1).
THEREFORE, THE POWER CONVERTER MUST BE PLUGGED INTO A PROPERLY
GROUNDED THREE-PRONGED OUTLET WITH A SOLID EARTH GROUND TO PREVENT
CIRCUIT PROBLEMS. THE POWER CONVERTER ALSO HAS AN EXTERNAL GROUNDING
LUG THAT SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO EARTH GROUND.
IF THE WIDE BANK IS CONNECTED TO A POWER SOURCE OTHER THAN THE
CARRIER ACCESS POWER CONVERTER/BATTERY CHARGER, A SEPARATE GROUND
WIRE MUST BE CONNECTED TO A COMMON BONDING NETWORK (CBN). SEE GROUND
CONNECTION ON page 5-6.
NOTE:
We recommend that each power input cable be protected by an in-line 3-amp

Working Configurations
All working configurations are saved in non-volatile memory. Whenever changes are made to the
working configuration by issuing any configuration command, the changes are automatically and
immediately saved in non-volatile memory. Changes are also copied to the standby Controller’s
non-volatile memory if Autocopy is on. If Autocopy is off, use the copy command to copy the entire
configuration to the standby Controller.
There is no command that can undo a configuration change. However, a temporary copy of the
current configuration can be saved with the temp copy command. This copy of the configuration
can be retrieved using the restore temp copy command, as long as power has not been cycled.
Another way to preserve the current configuration is to use the save tftp command, which saves a
snapshot of the configuration in a file system on your network using TFTP. This copy of the
configuration will not be destroyed by cycling power. The file can be retrieved using a restore tftp
command. See the save command and the restore command in Chapter 9.

Wide Bank 28 DS3 - Release 2.4
Configuration
Basic Configuration
Saving a Temporary Copy of Configuration
Use the temp copy command to place a temporary copy of the working configuration in volatile
storage, to be restored if the working copy becomes corrupted. One use for this command is when
you are changing the working configuration and want to easily return to the original configuration
if your changes do not work.
To save a copy of the configuration:
(A:Active)> temp copy
All current settings have been temporarily copied to RAM.
NOTE:
This temporary copy, because it is in volatile storage, will be lost whenever
power is turned off. This temporary copy, saved by the temp copy command, should not
be considered a true backup copy. The working configuration and the factory defaults are
the only configurations that will survive a power cycle, because they are retained in nonvolatile memory.
Restoring a Temporarily Saved Configuration
Use a restore temp copy command to replace the current working configuration with the temporary
configuration previously saved using a temp copy command. If no temp copy command was
previously issued, or if power was lost, there will be no temporary configuration to load.
Saving the Configuration to a User File System
NOTE:
Saving the configuration to a user file system, as well as restoring the
configuration requires that a TFTP server be running on the computer identified by the
“ipaddr” parameter of the save command.
A more secure copy of the working configuration can be saved to a user file system using TFTP, as
mentioned under Working Configuration. The save tftp ipaddr “filename” (include quotes)
command will save a copy of the working configuration with the specified file name on the
computer having the IP address stated in the command.
(A:Active)> save tftp ipaddr "filename"
Restoring Saved Configuration from User File System
If you have previously saved a copy of the configuration using the save tftp command, the file can
be retrieved using the restore tftp ipaddr “filename” command (see restore command in Chapter
9). The IP address and the filename string must match the ones used in the save command. The file
you receive is essentially a list of valid CLI commands that will set up the Wide Bank configuration
to match the snapshot.
(A:Active)> restore tftp ipaddr "filename"

Configuration
Basic Configuration
Restoring Factory Defaults
The working configuration can be replaced with the original factory defaults by using the restore
defaults command. Both the working configuration and the factory defaults are stored in nonvolatile storage and are retained when power is turned off.
One use for the restore defaults command is to re-configure the Wide Bank when the working
configuration is lost or corrupted and there is no temporary copy to restore.
To restore the configuration to the factory default settings, enter the following command.
(A:Active)> restore defaults
Factory default settings are now restored.
Validating Equipment
Validate that all the required interfaces are present. The equipment command lists all the low-speed
and DS3 cards and shows their status. If the LS mode does not match the card type that is installed,
comments in the low-speed status will say “Wrong card for LS mode.”

Setting System Security, Users, and Login Passwords
(Basic Security)
All configurations of the Wide Bank support a multiple-level user and password security system for
the CLI. With this basic security system, each user is assigned an access level and, optionally, a
password. The access level limits the user to operate with a specific set of commands. Enhanced
security, available as the "Security Upgrade" option, provides additional security features. If your
Wide Bank has the Security Upgrade option, see Setting System Security, Users, and Login
Passwords (Security Upgrade Option) on page 6-10.

Access Levels (Basic Security)
With basic security, there are three access levels available for CLI users:
admin – The admin user has access to all commands and has the sole authority to grant
others access to the system by adding and deleting user names and passwords. There can
be only one admin user (always named "admin") within the system.
rw (read/write) – An rw user has access to all commands except those for adding users,
deleting users, and setting user levels. The rw users are typically responsible for the dayto-day operation of the system.
ro (read only) – An ro user is limited to commands that display status and reports. The
ro access level permits technicians to monitor system operation and performance, but
prevents them from altering settings.
Password Protection (Basic Security)
The Wide Bank is shipped with password protection disabled (security off). You may choose to
enable password protection (security on) and set passwords for users to prevent unauthorized
system access.
With security off, login is accomplished simply by pressing the Enter key. No password is
required, and the user is considered to be at the admin level.
If security is on, and passwords have been assigned, login requires that you type a user name
and password when prompted. Users are permitted to modify their own passwords, if desired.
If passwords have not been assigned for users, a user name is required but no password is
requested.
NOTE: With basic security, user names must include from 1 to 10 alphanumeric
characters and must not contain spaces. User names are not case-sensitive when
defined; however, users must log in using lower-case characters.
Passwords can be from 1 to 10 alphanumeric characters and are case-sensitive. Spaces
and special characters are not allowed. Up to 32 characters may be entered but only the
first 10 will be used. Passwords can also be blank (not requested at login).
NOTE:
When security is on and the user admin is logged in, turning security off logs off
the user admin. Similarly, turning security on automatically logs in the user admin.
Security integrity is provided by denying access if a user name or password is entered
incorrectly. After three consecutive unsuccessful login attempts, the login prompt will not
appear for 10 seconds, and an SNMP trap (cliLoginFailureTrap) is sent to the Network
Management System (NMS). After the 10-second delay, the prompt wll reappear and another
login attempt can be made. This three-attempt rule applies to both RS-232 and Telnet sessions
but a Telnet session will be disconnected after three unsuccessful attempts, requiring
reconnection after a 10-second delay.

Setting System Security, Users, and Login Passwords
(Security Upgrade Option)
If the Wide Bank is configured with the Security Upgrade option, enhanced security features are
available, including an additional user access level and the ability to disable user interfaces. As with
basic security (described in the previous section), each user can be assigned a user level. Passwords
are required for each user.
With the Security Upgrade option, the Wide Bank supports the following enhanced security
features:
Four levels of users – secu, admin, rw, and ro
Restrictions on the number and types of characters allowed in user names and passwords
The ability to set a time-out value for CLI sessions
The ability to individually disable the user interface ports: Ethernet port, 9-pin RS-232 CLI
port, and 25-pin RS-232 TL1 port
The ability to disable SNMP management
The ability to disable TL1 management

Configuration
Basic Configuration
Access Levels (Security Upgrade Option)
With the Security Upgrade option, there are four access levels available for CLI users:
secu – The secu user has access to all commands and has the sole authority to grant others
access to the system by adding and deleting user names and passwords. The secu user
also has sole authority to perform such functions as clearing all statistics and logs,
configuring IP settings, restoring factory default or previously saved configurations, and
configuring the TL1 interface. There can be only one secu user (always named
"security") within the system.
admin – An admin user has access to all commands except those assigned exclusively to
the secu user. Functions available to the admin user that are not available to lower-level
users include clearing DS1 and DS3 statistics, copying a configuration from the active to
standby Controller, setting the system time and date, programming the flash memory,
saving a configuration to a TFTP server file, setting various security functions,
configuring SNMP, and copying the current configuration to temporary storage.
rw (read/write) – An rw user has access to all commands except those assigned
exclusively to the secu and admin users. The rw users are typically responsible for the
day-to-day operation of the system.
ro (read only) – An ro user is limited to commands that display status and reports. The
ro access level permits technicians to monitor system operation and performance, but
prevents them from altering settings.
Password Protection (Security Upgrade Option)
Wide Banks equipped with the Security Upgrade option are shipped with password protection
disabled (security off). You may choose to enable password protection (security on) and set
passwords for users to prevent unauthorized system access.
With security off, login is accomplished simply by pressing the Enter key. No password is
required, and the user is considered to be secu.
If security is on, login requires that you type a user name and password when prompted. Only
the secu user may modify passwords.
NOTE:
With the Security Upgrade option, user names must include from 8 to 10
alphanumeric characters and must not contain spaces. User names are case-sensitive.
Passwords must be from 8 to 10 characters and are case-sensitive. Passwords must
contain at least one each of the following types of characters: upper-case alphabetic,
lower-case alphabetic, numeric, and special characters. The permitted special characters
are listed with the user command (see USER on page 8-82).
If you are upgrading firmware in an existing Wide Bank, previously defined user names
and passwords that contain fewer than 8 characters will be preserved. Blank passwords
are also preserved.

Configuration
Basic Configuration
NOTE:
When security is on and the user secu is logged in, turning security off logs off
the user secu. Similarly, turning security on automatically logs in the user secu.
Security integrity is provided by denying access if a user name or password is entered
incorrectly. After three consecutive unsuccessful login attempts, the login prompt will not
appear for 10 seconds, and an SNMP trap (cliLoginFailureTrap) is sent to the Network
Management System (NMS). After the 10-second delay, the prompt wll reappear and another
login attempt can be made. This three-attempt rule applies to both RS-232 and Telnet sessions
but a Telnet session will be disconnected after three unsuccessful attempts, requiring
reconnection after a 10-second delay.
NOTE:
Whenever a user logs in or out of the CLI interface or the TL1 interface, an event
is recorded in the event log. The log entry indicates the name of the user that logged in or
out.
User Interface Access (Security Upgrade Option)
With the Wide Bank’s Security Upgrade option, you can selectively disable the following user
interfaces to prevent unauthorized access:
Ethernet port – Prevents SNMP, TCP/IP TL1, and Telnet sessions over the Ethernet
port.
9-pin RS-232 CLI port – Prevents CLI sessions over the RS-232 CLI port.
25-pin RS-232 TL1 port – Prevents TL1 sessions over the RS-232 TL1 port.
SNMP management – Prevents SNMP sessions over the Ethernet port and over the DS3
C-bit PPP data link.
TL1 management – Prevents TL1 sessions over the 25-pin RS-232 TL1 port, over the
Ethernet port, and over the DS3 C-bit PPP data link.
The Ethernet port and RS-232 CLI port cannot both be disabled. One of these ports must
remain active to provide CLI management access. If you disable the RS-232 port, you must
first assign a valid IP address to the Wide Bank for Ethernet access (cannot be null, 0.0.0.0, or
255.255.255.255). For information about setting the IP address, see Configuring IP and PPP
Addresses on page 6-15.
If you disable SNMP management, SNMP sessions are disabled over the Ethernet port and the
DS3 C-bit PPP data link. If you disable TL1 management, TL1 is disabled over the 25-pin RS232 TL1 port, the Ethernet port, and the DS3 C-bit PPP data link. In a PPP remote management
configuration, a local Wide Bank is connected via DS3 to a remote Wide Bank. The local Wide
Bank can route messages originating from the Ethernet channel to the remote Wide Bank over
the C-bit link. The remote Wide Bank responds over the C-bit link to the local Wide Bank
which then routes the responses back over its Ethernet channel. Disabling SNMP or TL1 in the
local Wide Bank does not prevent SNMP or TL1 sessions over the C-bit link to the remote Wide
Bank. To prevent SNMP or TL1 sessions to the remote Wide Bank via the C-bit link, these
interfaces must be disabled for the remote Wide Bank as well.

IP Routing With Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)
PPP routing provides an IP connection over the DS3 C-bit data link that can be used for
management instead of the Ethernet port. For example, a local (near end) Wide Bank
configured with an IP PPP setting will route any IP packets destined for the PPP
address along the C-bit PPP data link to the remote (far end) Wide Bank 28 DS3. The
near-end Wide Bank will also handle routing of upstream IP traffic from the far-end
Wide Bank 28 DS3.

These IP applications will function over the PPP link:
TFTP
SNMP

Configuring DS3
The following command (the ds3 command without parameters) displays the DS3
configuration settings. For details and parameters for the ds3 command, see Chapter 8. The
following examples show the difference between M23 framing and C-bit framing.
CAUTION! IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT THE DS3 CLOCK SOURCE
BE SET TO "INTERNAL" TIMING. THE WIDE BANK 28 DS3 IS AN ASYNCHRONOUS
MULTIPLEXER. ASYNCHRONOUS COMMUNICATIONS DO NOT REQUIRE A COMMON
CLOCK BETWEEN THE COMMUNICATING DEVICES. CHANGING THE CLOCK
SOURCE TO "LINE" CAN DISRUPT SERVICE AND CAUSE DS1 TIMING SLIPS.

Verifying Autocopy to Secondary Controller
With a secondary Controller card installed, and the autocopy feature on (default), the secondary
Controller will automatically reflect the same configuration as the primary Controller. The only
way to verify that autocopy worked is to switch Controllers and check configurations. If
autocopy is off (autocopy off), or if you choose to manually copy the configuration, the
configuration can be copied to the secondary Controller with a copy command. There may be
some cases (in protected DS3 installations) when the primary and secondary Controller/DS3
interfaces will not have the same configuration. In these cases, autocopy should be turned off
(use the command autocopy off).
NOTE:
The security configuration (user names, access levels, passwords) is always
autocopied between Controllers.
Turning Off Unused or Unterminated Low-Speed Channels
For continued FCC Part 15A and NEBS compliance, unused and unterminated low-speed channels
must be turned off by issuing the CLI ds1 or ls command:
(A:Active)> ds1 [n|range|all] disable
or
(A:Active)> ls [n|range|all] disable

Downloading to a Redundant Wide Bank 28 DS3 ... 6-26
Downloading to a Non-Redundant Wide Bank 28 DS3 ... 6-32
If your Wide Bank 28 DS3 Controller cards are equipped with FLASH memory, you can download a
new level of firmware to your Wide Bank. Usually, units with a serial number of 01898491000 or higher
have FLASH capability. The firmware can reside on any TFTP server to which you can connect through
the Ethernet, or it can reside on the PC you are using to manage the download. You must know the file
name of the new firmware, and if you are downloading through the Ethernet you must know the IP
address of the TFTP server on which the firmware resides.
Configurations for Downloading Firmware
A Wide Bank can be physically configured either with one Controller card (non-redundant), or with
two Controller cards (redundant). How your Wide Bank is configured will affect the downloading
process, as well as the continuous processing of traffic.
Downloading Firmware to a non-redundant Wide Bank will cause a short interruption of service (up
to 90 seconds) when the system resets after FLASH is re-programmed. Downloading firmware to
a redundant Wide Bank, when successful, will cause no interruption of service.
The effects to the downloading process are explained in the following procedures.
Management Connections for Downloading Firmware
The options for managing the download are:
Figure 6-3A: A PC, running terminal emulation (HyperTerminal, for example), connected to the
RS-232 port on the Wide Bank. The settings are 9600, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit.
Figure 6-3B: A VT100 terminal connected to the RS-232 port on the Wide Bank to control a
download over an Ethernet connection, and the Ethernet port on the Wide Bank connected to the

Protocol Options for Downloading Firmware
The protocol options for downloading software are:
Xmodem protocol: This protocol can be used when the management PC is connected to the
RS-232 port of the unit (Figure 6-3A) and the new control code resides on the same
(management) PC.
Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP): This protocol can be used when the management PC
is connected to either the RS-232 port in which file transfer occurs over the Ethernet port
(Figure 6-3B) or is connected with a Telnet session through the Ethernet port (Figure 6-3C).
There must be a TFTP server that can store and transfer the new control code. The TFTP
protocol is usually faster than the Xmodem protocol.

Alarm Cutoff (ACO) LED and Pushbutton
There is one alarm cutoff LED and pushbutton switch for each Controller card. Each alarm severity
(critical, major, and minor) has its own ACO function, though major and minor alarms share the
same relay contacts. When an alarm condition occurs, the active Controller energizes the alarm
relays for that alarm severity, providing open or closed contacts on the alarm output connector on
the rear connector panel, depending on the alarmout command setting. The connectors can be wired
to the facility alarm system to provide audible and visual alarm indications for each alarm severity.
See Alarm Contacts on page A-3.
You can silence or suppress the current alarm outputs by pressing the ACO pushbutton on the active
Controller (the Controller with lit alarm LEDs). This deactivates the currently active alarm relay
contacts and lights the ACO LED. However, if a new alarm condition occurs, the ACO function for
that alarm severity will be reset and that alarm output will resume. ACO operation is also reset when
the alarm condition is cleared.

DS3 Far-End Statistics
DS3 far-end statistics are available only when the Wide Bank 28 DS3 is configured for C-bit
framing.
The commands that display DS3 far-end statistics, in conformance with RFC 1407 DS3 MIB:
hour ds3far – Provides hour statistics for the far-end DS3. Statistics are calculated for
Unavailable Seconds, Severely Errored Seconds, Errored Seconds, and Parity Error Count.
day ds3far – Provides day statistics for the far-end DS3. Statistics are calculated for
Unavailable Seconds, Severely Errored Seconds, Errored Seconds, and Parity Error Count.
status ds3far – Provides status information for the far-end DS3, including alarm conditions
and characteristic DS3 ID strings. The alarm code can be one of the 11 codes specified in
ANSI T1.107.
DS3 Path Maintenance Data Link
DS3 Path Maintenance Data Link is available only when the Wide Bank 28 DS3 is configured for
C-bit framing.
The Path Maintenance Data Link is a 28.2-kbps terminal-to-terminal data link embedded in the
C-bits. The signal format on this data link comprises messages using a link access procedure on the
D-channel (LAPD). The LAPD messages carry DS3 Path Identification, DS3 Idle Signal
Identification, and DS3 Test Signal Identification. The specific message formats are as defined in
ANSI T1.107. The DS3 Path Identification is the most common message and is sent when the DS3
is carrying traffic, the DS3 Idle Signal Identification is sent when an IDLE signal is sent, and the
DS3 Test Signal Identification is sent when a PRBS test signal is sent. The appropriate LAPD
message is sent at least once per second. Because these messages consume minimal bandwidth, the
unused bandwidth is available for proprietary messaging.
Functional Description of DS3 Path Maintenance Data Link
The three identification messages all contain the following information, which can be set using
the ds3 command:
Equipment Identification Code – Describes a specific piece of equipment
Location Identification Code – Describes a specific location

Thermal Shut-Down
Thermal Shut-Down
The Wide Bank is designed for continuous operation at ambient temperatures up to 104 ºF (40 ºC) and
for short-term operation at ambient temperatures up to 131 º F (55 º C).
At higher ambient temperatures, the Wide Bank uses internal thermal protectors to automatically shut
down operation before any damage occurs. Prior to shutdown, the Wide Bank will issue an over
temperature alarm to notify the network of an impending thermal shutdown. The Wide Bank will remain
shutdown until the temperature inside the unit falls below 158 ºF (70 ºC), then it will automatically reset
and resume normal operation.
If thermal shutdown occurs, do the following:
Ensure that –48 VDC power is supplied to both the A and B power inputs when redundant
Controller cards are installed. (With only one input, the powered Controller must deliver twice as
much power, making its power converter operate at a higher temperature.)
Verify that the Wide Bank is properly ventilated to allow for heat dissipation. (Non-FFO equipped
units require free air space between units for ventilation.)
Reduce the ambient temperature if necessary.

FFO Test and Monitoring
Fan Faceplate Option (FFO) operation is automatically tested 30 seconds after installation. Also,
the FFO can be manually tested with the test fan [a|b|all] command. The FFO test applies power to
the fans for 30 seconds (there is a five-second delay after power is applied to the first fan until power
is applied to the second fan). During the 30-second test the rotation speed of each fan is monitored.
If either fan does not rotate at the correct speed, an error is logged, a Fan A and/or Fan B failure
alarm is enabled, and the Controller Status LED blinks red. Once a fan failure is detected, the
malfunctioning fan remains disabled until a new faceplate is installed.
If the speed of the fans is sufficient to cool the Wide Bank, they pass the self-test and they remain
enabled. Each Controller continually monitors the speed of its fan. If either fan is too slow for 30
consecutive seconds, the malfunctioning fan is disabled and a major alarm (Fan A, Fan B, or all
Failure) is generated. The alarm remains active until the malfunctioning FFO faceplate is removed.
If the configuration for ffo present is on when the faceplate is removed, and power is on, another
major alarm (Fan Faceplate Not Installed) becomes active. Alarms will clear when the faceplate is
re-installed.
To prevent the Fan Faceplate Not Installed alarm, issue the ffo present off command in the command
line interface before removing the faceplate.
NOTE: The test all command includes the fan test for both fans, only if the Controller is
a version that supports the Fan Faceplate Option and only if the FFO is installed. If the
Controller is an older version, or if the fans are not present, the fan tests are omitted.

See Chapter 8 for lsmode description.
The command ds1 [n|range|all] setting allows you to select one or more DS1 or E1 circuits
for use with most loopback tests. The n can be a range (ds1 1-6), an individual circuit (ds1 1), a
group of individual circuits (ds1 1-4,7,12,15), or a combination of ranges and individual
circuits (ds1 1-4,5,7,13-16). One exception is the metallic loopback, which is limited to four
circuits.
A test set should be used on the low-speed side to send patterns and perform loopback tests on each
of the available low-speed circuits, as indicated in the following procedure.

NOTE:
Special rules exist for metallic loopback because there is only one spare quad
card (four DS1 circuits or three E1 circuits).
• No more than four DS1 or three E1 circuits can be issued a metallic loopback at one
time (the commands ds1 all metallic and ls all metallic are not valid).
• Circuits selected for metallic loopback must all be from different protection groups.
For example, the range 1-5 is not valid because 1 and 5 are in the same group.

When the Wide Bank is configured for M23 framing, the following low-speed far-end loopup
and loopdown commands are available:
ds1 [n|range|list|all] send [niu|csu]
[loopup|loopdown] [network|drop]
Sends a loop up or loop down code to the specified far-end for loop mode control.

Testing the Network to the Far-End Through a Low-Speed Drop
This test uses a Wide Bank at one end of the network to provide an NIU loopup of a low-speed
drop at the far end. In the example below, a Wide Bank is used at both ends of the DS3 network,
providing a simple illustration of how the far-end loopup works.
NOTE: This test works with range and all parameters of the ds1 (ls) command but
usually is just as effective using only the n parameter (testing only one ls circuit), which
leaves all the other low-speed circuits operational. This test’s best purpose is to test the
DS3 network, beginning at a near-end low-speed drop and ending at a far-end low-speed
drop.
Once an equipment loopback is established to the far-end with the ds1 [n|range|all] send loopup
or ds1 [n|range|all] send cbit loopup command, a ds1 [n|range|all] send prbs network command
will send a prbs pattern over the selected low-speed tributaries within the DS3 network. This
pattern will be looped back from the far-end. Note that the unselected low-speed circuits will
maintain normal traffic during this test.
To stop the test, issue a ds1 [n|range|all] send off command, then issue the appropriate
loopdown command to disconnect the equipment loopback at the far end.
To read the results of the test, issue an hour ds1 n command.

Testing the DS3 Far-End with Loopback Tests
When the Wide Bank is configured for C-bit framing, the following DS3 far-end loopup and
loopdown control is available.
The command that controls the far-end DS3 loop mode sends either a loop up code or a loop down
code:
ds3 send [loopup|loopdown]
When a DS3 Activate Loopback command is received, the DS3 is set to a LINE loopback mode.
The loopback status can be observed by the ds3 and status ds3 commands. Also, the Controller
Status LED is set to YELLOW.
Far-End Loop Codes
When a far-end loop command is issued at the near-end, the selected Line Loopback Activate
or Deactivate code word is transmitted ten times to the far-end, followed immediately by the
selected low-speed or DS3 Line code word (also transmitted 10 times). See Table 2-1. The total
message to the far-end is 40 octets long (each code word is two octets).
NOTE: The labels for the loopback code words are determined by ANSI T1.107, so the
following chart refers to DS1 exclusively. However, the same loopback functions and code
words apply to E1 as well, with the exception that every fourth low-speed circuit is not used
with E1.
The DS1 code words use bits 3 - 7 to indicate which line is to be looped back.

Management Interfaces
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 has four management interfaces (see Figure 8-1):
Command Line Interface (CLI). An ASCII language, communicated over an RS-232 data
port or via Ethernet through a Telnet session. The Command Line Interface is a scrolling
interface. It is operated only from a dumb terminal (VT100) or a terminal emulation program
such as ProComm or HyperTerminal.
SNMP Agent. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), an industry standard
management interface, communicated through IP over a 10Base-T Ethernet data port. The
Wide Bank’s embedded SNMP Agent attaches to an Ethernet connection. It is operated by an
SNMP Manager application such as SunConnect SunNet Manager, HP OpenView, or Castle
Rock SNMPc, and the Carrier Access NetworkValet.
Transaction Language One (TL1). TL1 compliant automatic outbound alarming through
either a 25-pin RS-232 port or over TCP/IP. The Wide Bank also supports TL1 commands
over these same interfaces (see Chapter 9).
PPP over DS3. Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) can be used to support TFTP, SNMP, Telnet,
Ping, and TL1 over the DS3 link between two Wide Banks using C-bit framing. Management
commands are sent through the Ethernet port of the local Wide Bank for routing over the DS3
C-bit data link to a remote Wide Bank. To use this mode, the local Wide Bank must be
configured with the IP PPP Address of the remote Wide Bank and the IP Route is set to
Ethernet. The remote Wide Bank’s IP Route is set to PPP.
Management interfaces access the same configuration and data structures for low-speed DS1 and
E1 and high-speed DS3 interfaces. CLI has more maintenance and monitoring features than the
SNMP Agent. In other words, CLI manages a superset of the SNMP Agent. However, SNMP can
monitor status (traps), which CLI cannot.

Management Overview
Redundant DS3 Network Interfaces
The Wide Bank can have two Controller cards. To provide electronic and/or network redundancy,
each Controller card has a DS3 network interface. The secondary card (B) provides electronics and
route protection against faults that occur on the primary Controller card (A) and its interface.

Telnet Interface
You can use Telnet to remotely access the Wide Bank after setting up the IP address of the Ethernet
port (see IP on page 8-48). The Telnet interface is identical to the VT100 interface except that it
uses the TCP/IP protocol for data transport and is accessed through the 10Base-T Ethernet
connection.
You can open a Telnet session using the IP address. After pressing the Enter key to initiate the
connection, you can then log in as usual. When finished, log out using the exit command before
disconnecting the Telnet session.
If you do not exit the session, it will continue for 16 minutes, and any attempt to login through
Telnet or the RS-232 port will fail. If this occurs, type Ctrl k on the terminal connected to the Wide
Bank RS-232 port to end the one-sided Telnet session. If the Telnet session is idle for five minutes,
you will be automatically logged out.

CLI Commands and Messages
Management Overview
Security Levels
To prevent unauthorized access to the network, users can be assigned security levels. The levels
available depend on whether you use the Wide Bank’s basic security feature or whether the Wide
Bank is equipped with the Security Upgrade option. See Security on page 1-5 for an overview of
basic security and the Security Upgrade option.
Basic Security
With basic security, there are three security levels:
admin – The admin user has access to all commands and has the sole authority to grant
others access to the system by adding and deleting user names and passwords. There can
be only one admin user (always named “admin”) within the system.
rw (read/write) – An rw user has access to all commands except those for adding users,
deleting users, and setting user levels. The rw users are typically responsible for the dayto-day operation of the system.
ro (read only) – An ro user is limited to commands that display status and reports. The
ro access level permits technicians to monitor system operation and performance, but
prevents them from altering settings.
Security Upgrade Option
With the Security Upgrade option, there are four security levels:
secu – The secu user has access to all commands and has the sole authority to grant others
access to the system by adding and deleting user names and passwords. The secu user
also has sole authority to perform such functions as clearing all statistics and logs,
configuring IP settings, restoring factory default or previously saved configurations, and
configuring the TL1 interface. There can be only one secu user (always named
“security”) within the system.
admin – An admin user has access to all commands except those assigned exclusively to
the secu user. Functions available to the admin user that are not available to lower-level
users include clearing DS1 and DS3 statistics, copying a configuration from the active to
standby Controller, setting the system time and date, programming the flash memory,
saving a configuration to a TFTP server file, setting various security functions,
configuring SNMP, and copying the current configuration to temporary storage.
rw (read/write) – An rw user has access to all commands except those assigned
exclusively to the secu and admin users. The rw users are typically responsible for the
day-to-day operation of the system.
ro (read only) – An ro user is limited to commands that display status and reports. The
ro access level permits technicians to monitor system operation and performance, but
prevents them from altering settings.

CLI Commands and Messages
Management Overview
Security Integrity
The Wide Bank will deny access if a user name or password is entered incorrectly. After three
consecutive unsuccessful login attempts, the login prompt does not appear for 10 seconds, and an
SNMP trap (cliLoginFailureTrap) is sent. After the 10 second delay, the prompt reappears and
another login attempt can be made. The three-attempt rule is effective for both RS-232 and Telnet
sessions; however, a Telnet session is disconnected after three unsuccessful attempts, requiring
reconnection after a 10 second delay.
SNMP Traps
All supported SNMP MIB traps are turned on by default. The first three traps are supported by the
Wide Bank 28 DS3 with RFC 1213 MIB II. The remaining are equipment status traps provided by
the Carrier Access enterprise MIB (ds3am.mib). For detailed descriptions, see SNMP Traps
Supported by Wide Bank 28 DS3 on page 11-6.
warmStartTrap – occurs when the Wide Bank is powered off and on, or when all Controller
cards are removed and replaced
linkDownTrap – occurs when a communication facility fails or is removed
linkUpTrap – occurs when a communication facility is removed, then restored
cliLoginFailureTrap – occurs after three failed CLI login attempts
ds3ControllerStateTrap – occurs when a DS3 Controller experiences an alarm state change
ds1CardStateTrap – occurs when a DS1 card experiences an alarm state change
ext48VPowerStatusTrap – occurs when an external 48V power source fails or when the
failure is cleared
ds1ProtectSwitchTrapTrap – occurs when a DS1 facility is moved to the spare card
ds1MoveHomeTrap – occurs when a DS1 facility is moved from the spare card to its home
card
ds1InternalHardwareFailureTrap – occurs when a DS1 facility experiences an internal
hardware failure
ds1InternalHdwFailureClearTrap – occurs when a DS1 facility experienced an internal
hardware failure and it is now clearing
ds1InternalHdwFailureSpareTrap – occurs when a DS1 facility experienced an internal

CLI Commands and Messages
CLI Command List
CLI Command Syntax
The command syntax uses the following conventions:
Courier Font is used for command words
Italic Font indicates a variable for which you must substitute a value or word
Curly Brackets { } enclose required parameters
Square Brackets [ ] enclose optional items
Vertical Rules | | | separate items in a list for which you must select only one item
NOTE:
The Wide Bank ships with all configuration parameters set to factory default
values unless otherwise specified. Default values appear in bold type in the tables
following the CLI command syntax. The Wide Bank can be restored to these default values
at any time RESTORE on page 8-63.
CLI Shortcuts (Recall and Edit)
To simplify entering repetitive commands, CLI allows you to “recall” the previous three commands
entered by typing Ctrl+R (hold the Ctrl key down and press the R key). To go “forward,” type
Ctrl+F.
CLI also allows you to edit commands by using the Backspace key to delete mistakes and retyping
characters. This also allows you to easily recall and edit a previous command to change characters,
and then press the Enter key to enter the modified command.

CLI Commands and Messages
CLI Command List
ACO
Name: Alarm Cut Off
Purpose: Activates the Alarm Cut Off, which deactivates the alarm relay contacts to suppress the
alarm.
Security: rw and above
Syntax: aco
ALARMS
Name: Alarms
Purpose: Display the currently active alarms.
Security: ro and above
Syntax: alarms
Example: alarms
Sev

-----------DS3 A Loss Of Signal
Syntax: aco
ALARMS STANDBY
Name: Alarms Standby
Purpose: Set the severity of failure conditions for the standby DS3 Controller when logging and
reporting alarms (REPT ALM) and events (REPT EVT). The severity of many other
failure conditions can be set by the TL1 command SET-ATTR-<AIDType> on
page 9-75.
The “standby self-test” is only run when the standby Controller is initialized. Other CLI
commands (test all, test ds3) and TL1 commands (dgn-t3-all, dgn-all) only run a selftest on the active Controller card.
The “other controller bad” condition occurs if the active Controller loses
communications with the standby Controller. Both conditions cause a CONTEQPT,
“Control Equipment Failure”, STANDBY.
Note: The Wide Bank restricts standby Controller condition severities to values that
are equal to or less than the corresponding active Controller settings. You can still set
a standby condition severity to a greater value but the actual reported value will be
restricted by the active Controller setting, as shown in the following examples.

Active DS3 Controller lost communications with the
standby Controller
critical
Set alarm condition level to Critical
major
Set alarm condition level to Major
minor
Set alarm condition level to Minor
na
Not Alarmed. Condition is logged and reported as an
event (REPT EVT) instead of an alarm (REPT ALM).
nr
Not Reported. Condition is logged but not reported.
Example: alarms standby ds3_selftest
Set to Not Reported
Indicates that standby Controller self-test failure alarm severity is currently set to Not
Reported (nr).
Example: alarms standby ds3_selftest minor
Set to Minor
Sets standby Controller self-test failure alarm severity to Minor.
Example: alarms standby ds3_selftest major
Notice: Limited to Minor by Active Setting
Set to Major
Sets standby Controller self-test failure alarm severity to Major. However, the
accompanying “Notice” indicates that this alarm severity will be limited to Minor
because the active Controller alarm severity is currently set to Minor. The standby
Controller alarm severity can be no higher than the active Controller setting.

DS1
Name: DS1 Configuration Settings
Purpose: Show the DS1 or E1 low-speed interface configuration. The command followed by the
interface number displays the current configuration. (See following ds1 commands
with settings used to set the interface configuration.)
Note: When the LSMODE is set to DS1, you must use the DS1 commands. When the
LSMODE is set to either DS1LS or E1LS, you must use the LS commands. The LS
command operates just like the DS1 command, except that the responses are specific
to the DS1 or E1 interface type. In the DS1LS mode, the low-speed references in
command responses are the same as for the DS1 mode. In E1LS mode, the low-speed
references in command responses are for E1 (each E1 card has only three active
circuits; the fourth, unused, circuit on an E1 card is called CIR). See LSMODE on
page 8-58 and LS on page 8-50.

DS1 AINS
Name: DS1 Automatic In-Service Detection
Purpose: Set low-speed alarm mode for automatic detection of new service connections. This
command allows service providers to configure low-speed drops before connections or
facilities are available. When automatic in-service detection is enabled, a disabled lowspeed channel can be enabled (set in service) while a Loss of Signal (LOS) condition
is present, and the Wide Bank will inhibit LOS alarm reporting for that channel until a
new service connection has been established for the specified delay time.
Note: Following a DC power interruption, the LOS inhibit will be disabled on all
channels, causing an LOS alarm on any DS1 that is enabled but not in service.
Note: A channel’s LOS inhibit will also be disabled immediately if any of the
following events occur:
• the channel is disabled (set out of service)
• a hardware failure occurs on the channel
• a metallic loopback is run on the channel
• the channel is manually moved to a spare
• the channel’s card is removed
However, if a channel is disabled and then re-enabled while an LOS condition is
present, the automatic in-service detection will again inhibit the LOS alarm.
Auto in-service detection is applied on a channel-by-channel basis. If service is
discontinued on a channel, automatic in-service detection can be reapplied to that
channel by simply placing it out of service and then back in service (see DS1 ENABLE/
DISABLE on page 8-23).
To quickly provision automatic in-service detection when turning up a new Wide Bank,
first turn on automatic in-service detection and then place all DS1s or E1s out of service
and then back in service.

Error
Description
cvp_p
Code Violations - Path P-bit. The definition of CVP-P depends on the
particular DS3 application:
• For M23 applications, CVP-P is the number of P-bit parity check
Code Violations (CVs). The receipt of non-identical P-bits
corresponding to the same DS3 M-Frame also constitutes a parity
check CV.
• For C-bit applications, both CP-bit parity Code Violations (CVCPP) counts and CVP-P counts are defined and may be supported
because they can convey different information.
esp_p
Errored Seconds - Path P-bit. The definition of CVP-P depends on the
particular DS3 application:
• For M23 applications, ESP-P is the number of one-second intervals
containing one or more P-bit parity errors, one or more Severely
Errored Frames (SEFs), or one or more AIS defects.
• For C-bit Parity applications, SSP-P is the number of one-second
intervals containing one or more ESP-P errors or ESCP-P errors.
ESCP-P is the number of seconds containing one or more CP-bit
parity violations, one or more Severely Errored Frames (ESFs), or
one or more AIS defects.
loss_l
Loss of Signal Seconds - Line. The number of one-second intervals
containing one or more Loss of Signal (LOS) defects.
sesl
Severely Errored Seconds - Line. The number of one-second intervals
in which Bipolar Violations (BPVs) plus Excessive Zeros (EXZs), or
one or more Loss of Signal (LOS) defects occur.
sescp_p
Severely Errored Seconds - Path CP-bit. The number of one-second

Purpose: Configure DS3 network protection when using two DS3 lines. When DS3 protection is
enabled, the Wide Bank will switch to the standby Controller if the DS3 interface on
the active Controller has an alarm condition. The Wide Bank will not revert back to the
active Controller unless revertive switching is enabled (see REVERTIVE on
page 8-67).
Security: rw and above
Syntax: ds3 protect [off|on]
Field
Description
protect
DS3 network protection
off
Disable network protection (default). This setting will provide
electronics-only protection if there are two Controllers and only one
DS3 line.
on
Enable network protection when there are two DS3 lines

DS3 SEND
Name: DS3 Send Code
Purpose: Configure DS3 interface to send a code toward the network. This command permits a
variety of bit pattern codes to be sent toward the low-speed or network side. Each lowspeed channel includes a pseudo-random bit sequence (PRBS) code generator and
detector (see chapter 7).
Note: Because the codes are unframed, external test equipment may indicate a loss of
framing.
Note: When ds3 protect is turned on, this command will transmit codes over both
primary and secondary DS3s.
Security: rw and above
Syntax: ds3 send {off|ais|idle|loopup|loopdown|prbs}
Field
Description
send

LS
Name: LS Configuration Settings
Purpose: Show the DS1 or E1 low-speed interface settings. The command followed by the
interface number displays the current configuration. The command, with a move
option, gives control of a low-speed interface to a spare circuit for maintenance or when
a low-speed card is to be removed.
Note: When the LSMODE is set to DS1, you must use the DS1 commands. When the
LSMODE is set to either DS1LS or E1LS, you must use the LS commands. The LS
command operates just like the DS1 command, except that the responses are specific
to the DS1 or E1 interface type. In the DS1LS mode, the low-speed references in
command responses are the same as for the DS1 mode. In E1LS mode, the low-speed
references in command responses are for E1 (each E1 card has only three active
circuits; the fourth, unused, circuit on an E1 card is called CIR). See LSMODE on
page 8-58 and DS1 on page 8-21.

LS AINS
Name: LS Automatic In-Service Detection
Purpose: Set low-speed alarm mode for automatic detection of new service connections. This
command allows service providers to configure low-speed drops before connections or
facilities are available. When automatic in-service detection is enabled, a disabled lowspeed channel can be enabled (set in service) while a Loss of Signal (LOS) condition
is present, and the Wide Bank will inhibit LOS alarm reporting for that channel until a
new service connection has been established for the specified delay time.
Note: Following a DC power interruption, the LOS inhibit will be disabled on all
channels, causing an LOS alarm on any DS1 or E1 that is enabled but not in service.
Wide Bank 28 DS3 - Release 2.4
July 2004
8-51
CLI Commands and Messages
CLI Command List
Note: A channel’s LOS inhibit will also be disabled immediately if any of the
following events occur:
• the channel is disabled (set out of service)
• a hardware failure occurs on the channel
• a metallic loopback is run on the channel
• the channel is manually moved to a spare
• the channel’s card is removed.
However, if a channel is disabled and then re-enabled while an LOS condition is
present, the automatic in-service detection will again inhibit the LOS alarm.
Auto in-service detection is applied on a channel-by-channel basis. If service is
discontinued on a channel, automatic in-service detection can be reapplied to that
channel by placing it out of service and then back in service (see LS ENABLE/DISABLE
on page 8-53).
To quickly provision automatic in-service detection when turning up a new Wide Bank,
first turn on automatic in-service detection and then place all DS1s or E1s out of service
and then back in service.

Note: When the LSMODE is set to DS1, you must use the DS1 commands. When the
LSMODE is set to either DS1LS or E1LS, you must use the LS commands. The LS
command operates just like the DS1 command, except that the responses are specific
to the DS1 or E1 interface type. In the DS1LS mode, the low-speed references in

SAVE
Name: Save Configuration
Purpose: Save the current Wide Bank configuration to a TFTP server file. To restore a
configuration file, see RESTORE on page 8-63.
This command generates a configuration file organized into sections, with an
appropriate comment preceding each section. Configuration items that regard security
are NOT included (for example, security and user commands). However, configuration
files can be manually edited using a text editor, and items such as security and users
can be added to the file.
The configuration file contains a list of valid Wide Bank commands and settings.
Comments within this file use the # character. Any text between a # and end-of-line is
not processed as a configuration item. If errors are encountered while parsing the
configuration file, the line numbers on which the errors occurred will be displayed.
Also, if privilege restrictions are encountered (a command exists in the configuration
that the current user does not have privilege to execute), those errors will be displayed
as well.

TL1
Name: TL1 Configuration
Purpose: Set or show TL1 setup configuration, including the TL1 network identification,
administrator password, and TCP port number. It can also be used to send a simulated
alarm to test the TL1 interface.
This command can be used to embed TL1 commands in quotes and pass them over the
CLI channel to the Wide Bank, rather than initiating a separate TL1 session. (See
Chapter 9.) This feature permits easy verification and testing of the TL1 configuration.
The networkid serves as the unit identifier in multi-unit networks. It is also the string
that appears at the beginning of the command prompt and as the source identifier in
TL1 messages.
Note: The TL1 password can be set but is never displayed to any user.

Purpose: Add and delete users, assign security levels, and set passwords.
Basic Security – With basic security (see Security on page 1-5), only the admin user
can add and delete users and assign security levels. Users can change their own
passwords with the user “username” password command.
For convenience in new installations, the security on command (see SECURITY on
page 8-69) automatically logs in the admin user (always named “admin”). While
security is on, subsequent logins require a username and an associated password (if the
password is not blank). The security off command disables multiple-user security
protection and logs off the admin user.
The maximum number of CLI user names is 10, including the admin user. The admin
user cannot be deleted and no other user can have admin access.
Security Upgrade – With the Security Upgrade (see Security on page 1-5), only the
secu user can use this command. Users are not permitted to change their own
passwords.
For convenience in new installations, the security on command (see SECURITY on
page 8-69) automatically logs in the secu user (always named “security”). While

The Wide Bank 28 DS3 supports remote management using Transaction Language One (TL1)
commands and responses described in Telcordia GR-833-CORE, Issue 2, November 1996, and in GR199-CORE, Issue 2, November 1996, and TR-NWT-000835, Issue 3, January 1993.
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 also supports TL1 automatic messages that are used to automatically report
alarms and other events detected by the Wide Bank. The Wide Bank supports the reporting of alarmed
and non-alarmed events using the message formats defined by Telcordia GR-833-CORE, 1996. OSS’s
such as Telcordia’s NMA system are able to use these messages to provide trouble reports to the
network operations center.

NOTE:
The Wide Bank ships with all configuration parameters set to factory default
values unless otherwise specified. Default values appear in bold type in the tables
following the TL1 command syntax. The Wide Bank can be restored to these default
values at any time (see STA-LOCL-RST on page 9-80).
The parts of the command shown between square brackets are optional but some of these
options may be required to successfully complete specific commands.
In the Wide Bank system, the access identifier <aid>, correlation tag <ctag>, and target
identifier <tid> are optional.
If desired, you can insert the <ctag> in the command so that commands and their associated
responses can be correlated.

TL1 Commands and Messages
TL1 Overview
For example, consider the Retrieve-Header command syntax:
RTRV-HDR:tid::ctag;
In the Wide Bank system, the default target identifier <tid> is MULTIPLEXER-1. Using a
<ctag> value of 35 as an example, the resulting command would be:
RTRV-HDR:MULTIPLEXER-1::35;
In this example, the command parts are:
verb
modifier
tid
ctag
RTRV
HDR
MULTIPLEXER-1
35
NOTE:
For simplicity, examples and responses in this document will represent the tid
and ctag values by the lower-case letters tid and ctag.
Grouping Values as Lists and Ranges
Most Access IDs (aids) can be grouped together when sending commands:
Lists – use & to enter lists, as in DS1-1&DS1-3&DS1-5
Ranges – use && to specify a range of values, as in DS1-1&&DS1-5
Response Syntax
The general format of a command response is shown below:
<cr><lf><lf>
^^^<sid>^<YYYY-MM-DD>^<HH:MM:SS><cr><lf>
M^^<ctag>^<Completion_Code><cr><lf>
[Text_Block<cr><lf>]*;
The symbol <cr> represents a carriage return, and <lf> a line feed. A space is represented by
the “^” symbol. The correlation tag will be the same as the one provided in the command. If the
correlation tag was omitted from the command, then the correlation tag in the response will be
zero (0). Completion codes are described in Completion Codes on page 9-87.
Finally, there may be zero or more Text_Blocks with each block containing a <cr><lf> at the
end of the response. The example below is the normal response without a text block. It is used
to signify that the command was received and executed.

Security Levels
To prevent unauthorized access to the network, the administrator assigns security levels to each user
account. TL1 commands have the following three security levels.
RWA (Read-Write-Administration) for administrators (admins) with full privileges
RW (Read-Write) for operators that need to monitor and edit data
R (Read Only) for users that need only to monitor data
TL1 Shortcuts (Recall and Edit)
To simplify entering repetitive commands, the Wide Bank allows you to “recall” the previous ten
commands entered by pressing the up and down arrow keys. Press the up arrow to recall the
previous command (go backwards), and the down arrow key to go forward.
The Wide Bank also allows you to edit TL1 commands by using the backspace key to delete
mistakes and retyping characters. This also allows you to easily recall and edit a previous command
to change characters, and then press the semicolon key to enter the modified command.

TL1 Setup and Configuration
Establishing a TL1 Session Via the RS-232 TL1 Port
Connect the Wide Bank’s asynchronous RS-232 TL1 port to a terminal multiplexer. If an X.25
interface is desired, use an external X.25 pad to provide asynchronous RS-232 to X.25
conversion.
Establishing a TL1 Session Using Terminal-to-Terminal Link
In a point-to-point application with another Wide Bank 28 DS3 running in C-bit framing mode,
the DS3 terminal-to-terminal data link can be used to remotely manage the far-end terminal.
See Configuring IP and PPP Addresses on page 6-15.
Setting the Network/Prompt/Source/Target Identifier
It is recommended that each Wide Bank 28 DS3 be assigned a network identifier for management
and identification purposes. This is particularly important when many units are being managed over
TCP/IP from a single server. In large networks a unique network identifier can be used to identify
each unit for domain name IP address lookup.
Depending on the managment interface, the network identifier is referred to as the:
Command Line Prompt in CLI sessions
Network Identifier in CLI commands and responses
Target Identifier (TID) in TL1 commands and responses
Source Identifier (SID) in TL1 autonomous event messages
NOTE:
Restoring factory defaults will not change the network identifier, IP address, or
security settings because that would disrupt management communications with the unit.
Using CLI to Set the Network Identifier
The network identifier is normally set during initial installation and basic configuration. After
logging on through a craft terminal or Telnet session, use the following CLI command to enter
or change the network ID.
tl1 networkid "string"
There can be no spaces in the string, only alphanumeric characters or hyphens.
Example: (A:Active)> tl1 networkid "MULTIPLEXER-1"
tl1 networkid "MULTIPLEXER-1"
MULTIPLEXER-1 (A:Active)>
Using TL1 to Set the Identifier
The identifier can also be set through the TL1 interface. After logging on, use the TL1
command SET-SID on page 9-78.

TL1 Commands and Messages
TL1 Setup and Configuration
Setting the Initial TL1 Admin Password
A new Wide Bank has no TL1 users in the TL1 user database. So before you can log into the TL1
interface the first time, you must set an initial TL1 administrator Password ID (pid) through the CLI
interface.
Enter the initial password with the following CLI command:
TL1 password "password"
This password is valid only with the user name “admin,” which is automatically assigned to the first
user to log in after installation. Logging into the TL1 interface with the user name “admin” and the
initial TL1 password will start a TL1 session with administrator privileges to add other users.
Activating a TL1 User Session
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 can accommodate up to five TL1 user sessions simultaneously:
1. One session through the 25-pin RS-232 (TL1) port.
(9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no flow control)
This interface has no session timeout.
2. Three TCP/IP sessions through the Ethernet port using a port address.
(Example: telnet 192.168.2.247 9999)
The default session timeout for this interface port is 31 minutes, which is configurable using the
command SET-ATTR-SECUDFLT on page 9-77.
NOTE:
Address 9999 is the default TL1 port address. The TL1 port address can be set
to any number between 1024 and 65535, inclusive. This value must be set using the CLI
tl1 portnumber command (see TL1 on page 8-81). When using the Windows Telnet
program, the TCP/IP port address must be entered through a separate dialog box.
NOTE:
“Local Echo” must be turned on for TL1 sessions using the TL1 port number.
3. One CLI session issuing TL1 commands.
TL1 commands are entered using double-quotes following the TL1 field.
Example:
(A:Active)> tl1 "ACT-USER:tid:UserName:ctag::password;"
TL1 Commands and Response Messages
NOTE: For simplicity, examples and responses in this document use the lower-case
letters tid and ctag to represent the optional Target Identifier and Correlation Tag. The
target identifier is optional but if it is included in a command, must be correct or the
command will be denied. The correlation tag is optional and is an alphanumeric string,
which if entered in a command, will be echoed in the corresponding response message.

TL1 Setup and Configuration
Activating Users
Use the act-user command is the login command. Use it to start a TL1 session.
ACT-USER:tid:UserName:ctag::password;
For the first login to a newly installed Wide Bank, the UserName field must be “admin” and the
password must be the initial TL1 password entered through the CLI. Other users, added by the
admin session, must use the correct UserName and password assigned by the admin.
As soon as at least one administrator-level user is added to the TL1 user database, the initial
TL1 "admin" user name will no longer be valid and the TL1 password entered through the CLI
will also no longer be valid. Subsequently, all users must log in using the correct user name and
password as entered in the TL1 user database.
NOTE:
If you add one or more administrator level users to the TL1 user database, the
“admin” user name will be deleted at the end of the current session and the TL1 password
entered through the CLI will no longer be valid. All users must then log in using the user
names and passwords in the TL1 user database.
Normal Response to Activate User Command
When the first activate user command is accepted, the Wide Bank will respond with a normal
completion response followed by an automatic retrieve equipment response showing the
current equipment configuration:

NOTE:
Whenever a user logs in or out of the TL1 interface, an event is recorded in the
TL1 security log and in the event log. The event log entry indicates the name of the user
that logged in or out.
Adding Users
Users can be added only from an administrator session. The maximum number of TL1 user names
is 10, including the administrator. Use the ent-user-secu command:
ENT-USER-SECU:MULTIPLEXER-1:NewUser:ctag::password,,uap;
MULTIPLEXER-1 is the default Target ID (tid) of the network element. This field is optional.
NEWUSER is the new users UserName, a string of up to 10 characters.
The password is a string of up to 10 characters with at least two non-alpha characters, of which
one must be non-alphanumeric. An example is PW-1.
TL1 formatting characters (such as a colon or comma) can not be used in the user name or
password.
UAP is the user access privilege field. Valid options are: R-Read Only; RW-Read and Write;
RWA-Read, Write, and Administration.
NOTE:
The default "admin" user name will be deleted after entering another user with
RWA privilege. It is advisable to have at least two RWA users.
Deleting Users
Users can be deleted only from an administrator session. Use the dlt-user-secu command:
DLT-USER-SECU:MULTIPLEXER-1:UserName:1;
NOTE:
If there is only one administrator in the user database, that user cannot be
deleted.

release automatic in-service detection on all DS1 or E1 channels, see RLS-ARC<LSType> on page 9-44.
Note: Following a DC power interruption, the LOS inhibit will be disabled on all
channels, causing an LOS alarm on any DS1 or E1 that is enabled but not in service.
Wide Bank 28 DS3 - Release 2.4

TL1 Commands and Messages
TL1 Command List
Note: A channel’s LOS inhibit will also be disabled immediately if any of the
following events occur:
• the channel is disabled (set out of service)
• a hardware failure occurs on the channel
• a metallic loopback is run on the channel
• the channel is manually moved to a spare
• the channel’s card is removed.
However, if a channel is disabled and then re-enabled while an LOS condition is
present, the automatic in-service detection will again inhibit the LOS alarm.
Automatic in-service detection is applied on a channel-by-channel basis. If service is
discontinued on a channel, automatic in-service detection can be reapplied to that
channel by placing it out of service (see RMV-<AIDType> on page 9-46) and then back
in service (see ENT-<LSType> on page 9-33).
To quickly provision automatic in-service detection when turning up a new Wide Bank,
first turn on automatic in-service detection and then place all (aid = ALL) T1s or E1s
out of service and then back in service.

RTRV-ATTR-<AIDType>
Name: Retrieve Attribute
Purpose: Instructs the Wide Bank to return the notification code associated with the specified
alarm or event. The notification code determines whether an event is alarmed and the
severity assigned to the alarm or event. All alarm and event conditions (condtype) have
default severities for notification conditions (ntfcnde) but most severities can be
changed by the user. The assigned severities apply to alarms and events reported in the
CLI and TL1 alarm messages and by the alarm LED indicators and alarm output
contacts on the unit.
This command does not retrieve environment (ENV) conditions.
Severities can be assigned by the command SET-ATTR-<AIDType> on page 9-75.
Critical (CR), Major (MJ), and Minor (MN) alarms are reported by REPT ALM
messages (see TL1 Automatic Messages on page 9-101).
Not Alarmed (NA) events are reported by REPT EVT messages (see TL1 Automatic
Messages on page 9-101).
Not Reported (NR) events can be retrieved by the RTRV-COND command (see

TL1 Command List
SET-ATTR-SECUDFLT
Name: Set Attribute Security Default Time-out
Purpose: Set the number of minutes before session inactivity times out the TL1 TCP/IP port.
When the command is issued, any active sessions will be updated with the new session
time-out period. Setting the tmout parameter to zero will turn off session inactivity
time-outs so that sessions will never time out. The system default time-out is 31
minutes.
Note: This command applies only to TL1 sessions using the TCP/IP port on that Wide
Bank. It does not affect TL1 sessions using the TL1 RS-232 port or any CLI sessions
using TCP/IP or RS-232.

TL1 Parameter Descriptions
Access Identifier <aid>
The Access Identifier determines which entity in the Wide Bank is addressed. The Access ID is
represented by <aid>.
NOTE:
For commands specifying DS1 and E1 circuits, you can often use the singleampersand notation (&) to enter lists and the double-ampersand notation (&&) to specify
a range of DS1s or E1s. For example, to enter DS1 #1, #3, and #5, enter DS1-1&DS13&DS1-5. To specify a range from DS1 #1 through #6, enter DS1-1&&DS1-6. The & and
&& notation can normally be used whenever the equivalent CLI command allows you to
enter a list or range.

This field is represented by <ctag>. The correlation tag is used to match commands and responses.
It is sent out as part of the command, and the Wide Bank returns it as part of the response. The
correlation tag is assigned by the user issuing the command and can be arbitrarily chosen. Each
command issued should be assigned a different correlation tag to prevent confusing commands and
responses.
Correlation tags are optional in TL1 commands. The correlation tag can contain between zero and
six alphanumeric characters. If the correlation tag is not issued with the command, the responses to
that command will have a correlation tag with a value of zero.
An invalid ctag will produce the following error response.

Service affecting Condition
Service Effect Codes are used in automatic messages and are not supported in TL1 commands.
When a service effect is specified in a command, the following error response is returned:
M

/* Service effect (srveff) not supported */
;
Target Identifier <tid> and Source Identifier <sid>
NOTE:
For simplicity, examples and responses in this document will represent the
target id and source identifiers by the lower-case letters tid and sid.
The target identifier <tid> specifies the network element to which the command is sent. The source
identifier <sid> is part of the response, and specifies which network element transmitted the
response. Both tid and sid are alphanumeric or hyphen characters.
The target identifier is optional in TL1 commands. However, if a value is entered that does not
match the target identifier stored on the network element, the following error response is returned.
M
tid 2001-08-05 00:43:22
ctag DENY
IITA
/* Input, Invalid Target Indentifier */
;
The target identifier or source identifier is set by the command tl1 networkid “networkid” issued
from the CLI of the network element to which the target identifier belongs. Any commands issued
to that network element must contain its target identifier. That same target identifier will become
the source identifier in any response that specific network element sends back.
Threshold Level <thlev>
This parameter specifies the threshold level. If this level is exceeded, the Wide Bank will send an
event report for the associated parameter.

The Wide Bank 28 DS3 automatically reports alarms and events to the network management system.
The Wide Bank provides default values for the severities assigned to these alarms and events. However,
you can change the notification code (ntfcncde) of many alarm and events in order to alter their severity
or to prevent them from being automatically reported (see SET-ATTR-<AIDType> on page 9-75).
NOTE:
Notification codes can only be changed through the TL1 interface.

Card Maintenance
The Wide Bank is equipped with one or two Controller cards for processing and high-speed
connections. For Low-Speed (LS) connections the Wide Bank can have from one to seven active lowspeed cards and one spare low-speed card. These cards contain all the Wide Bank circuits, and can be
removed and replaced with power on (hot-swapped).
WARNING! SEE PROPER ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE (ESD)
PROCEDURES WHEN REMOVING AND HANDLING THE LOW-SPEED AND
CONTROLLER CARDS. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU WEAR A RESISTANCE-STYLE
WRIST STRAP TO GROUND YOURSELF THROUGH THE EQUIPMENT CHASSIS. SEE
STATIC-SENSITIVE EQUIPMENT HANDLING PROCEDURES ON page 5-3 FOR
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE A WRIST STRAP.
Card Locations
The following figure shows card slot and circuit locations. The Controller cards occupy the two wide
slots at the top left of the chassis. Any low-speed card slot, including the spare slot, can contain either
a standard LS card or an MSO card. The figure below shows both low-speed card types for purposes
of identification but it is recommended that all cards be the same type.

Removing and Installing Faceplates
Removing and Installing Faceplates
DANGER! FIRE HAZARD. STANDARD UL 1950 REQUIRES THAT ALL ACCESS
COVERS BE REPLACED TO PREVENT FIRES FROM SPREADING TO NEARBY EQUIPMENT.
Wide Banks come either with a standard (no-fan) faceplate or with the fan faceplate option (FFO). The
faceplate must be removed and re-installed when replacing a circuit card. If a fan fails on a fan faceplate,
the entire fan faceplate must be replaced because individual fans are not replaceable.
Standard Faceplates
1. Remove the faceplate with a Phillips-head screw driver. Loosen the two captive screws on each
end of the faceplate that secure the faceplate to the Wide Bank chassis.
2. When installiing the faceplate, do not overtighten the captive screws. Carrier Access
recommends a maximum torque of 8 to 10 inch-pounds.
Fan Faceplates
CAUTION! IN HIGH-DENSITY RACKS WITH THE POWER TURNED ON, A FAN
FACEPLATE MUST BE RE-INSTALLED WITHIN 5 MINUTES TO PREVENT THE
FROM OVERHEATING AND INTERRUPTING SERVICE.
WIDE BANK
NOTE:
Fan faceplates can only be installed on FFO-capable Controller cards equipped
with fan power connectors.
Fan faceplates have two fans that provide extra cooling for high-density installations. Power for the
fans is derived from connections between the faceplate and the two Controller cards. These
connections also include a tachometer lead that allows the fans to be monitored and tested.
Therefore, proper alignment of the power connectors is essential when installing a fan faceplate.

Maintenance
Removing and Installing Faceplates
1. Remove the fan faceplate with a Phillips-head screw driver. Loosen the two captive screws on
each end of the faceplate that secure the faceplate to the Wide Bank chassis. A little force may
be required to disconnect the two fan power connectors.
2. When installiing the fan faceplate, use care to ensure correct alignment of the two power
connectors before tightening the fastening screws at each end of the faceplate. Do not
overtighten the captive screws. Carrier Access recommends a maximum torque of 8 to 10 inchpounds.
NOTE:
When a fan faceplate is installed with the Wide Bank power turned on, there is
a 30-second delay before the fans are turned on.

Replacing Low-Speed Cards
Replacing Low-Speed Cards
WARNING! SEE PROPER ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE (ESD)
PROCEDURES WHEN REMOVING AND HANDLING THE LOW-SPEED AND
CONTROLLER CARDS. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU WEAR A RESISTANCE-STYLE
WRIST STRAP TO GROUND YOURSELF THROUGH THE EQUIPMENT CHASSIS. SEE
STATIC-SENSITIVE EQUIPMENT HANDLING PROCEDURES ON page 5-3 FOR
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE A WRIST STRAP.
Low-speed cards come in two styles: the standard card and the Maintenance Service Option (MSO)
card. The procedures for swapping these cards are different, as described below. The Maintenance
Service Option includes not only a different style of card but also a specific minimum level of firmware
(1.47 or higher).
Maintenance Practices for Low-Speed Cards
There are two maintenance practices that you should follow when replacing low-speed cards to
minimize the effects on traffic. One practice is used for standard low-speed cards and the other is
used for MSO low-speed cards.
Standard Low-Speed Card Maintenance Practice
1. Plan to replace a failed low-speed card during a low-traffic period or when the circuits on the
card will not be carrying traffic. Removing a low-speed card disrupts service on all four circuits
on the card because there are no relays to maintain service through the spare card. So, replacing
cards during off-peak traffic times will minimize service disruptions.
2. Replace a failed low-speed card at the first opportunity. This will reduce the risk that other
failed circuits will be dropped because there are no spare circuits available.
3. Do not remove more than one low-speed card at the same time. Each card that is removed will
disrupt traffic on four circuits.
MSO Low-Speed Maintenance Practice
1. Replace a failed low-speed MSO Electronics card at the first opportunity. This will reduce the
risk that other failed circuits will be dropped because there are no spare circuits available.
2. Do not remove or replace more than one MSO Electronics card at a time. If one low-speed card
is removed, all four circuits on that card will move to the spare card. But when a second lowspeed card is removed, the resulting resource conflict will cause all circuits on all removed
cards to be dropped.

DROPPED UNTIL A CARD IS INSERTED INTO THE SLOT.
1. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the two fastening screws on the front
faceplate of the Wide Bank and remove the faceplate. See Figure 10-3.
2. Locate the low-speed card you want to remove. See Figure 10-1 for low-speed
card and circuit locations.
3. Pull the card ejector latch to release the card from its internal connector.
4. Carefully slide the card out of the Wide Bank.
5. Ensure that the replacement card is positioned correctly in the guide rails, then
carefully slide the card into the slot.
6. Press the card ejector latch in toward the card until the connector on the card mates with the
matching connector on the backplane.
NOTE:
When replacing a fan faceplate, ensure that the fan power connectors are
aligned and seated on the Controller board power connectors.
7. Replace the faceplate and tighten the fastening screws. Do not overtighten. Carrier Access
recommends a maximum torque of 8 to 10 inch-pounds.

Replacing Low-Speed Cards
Replacing an MSO Low-Speed Card
The Maintenance Service Option allows hot-swapping a low-speed card
without dropping the circuits carried by that card. This is accomplished by
removing only the electronics section of the two-section MSO card, leaving
the relay section of the MSO card fully seated and latched in the card slot,
as shown in Figure 10-4. Removing the relay section of the MSO card will
drop the circuits carried by the card, just like removing a standard low-speed
card.
With MSO Relay section
installed in chassis, the
MSO Electronics section
can be removed without
interrupting service.
MSO card assembly,
comprising MSO Electronics
section and MSO Relay
section, replaces standard

ALWAYS FOLLOW THE STATIC-SENSITIVE EQUIPMENT HANDLING PROCEDURES
ON page 5-3 WHEN OPENING EQUIPMENT COVERS AND HANDLING PLUG-IN
CARDS.
There can be one DS3 Controller Cards installed in the Wide Bank, or there can be two. When two DS3
cards are installed, one of them can be hot-swapped without losing the DS3 connection if both power
connectors A and B are supplied with –48 VDC. When only one DS3 card is installed, or when only one
power connector is supplied with –48 VDC, hot-swapping will interrupt service on the DS3 interface.
With two Controller cards, and both power connectors supplied with –48 VDC, use the switch command
to switch control away from the card to be replaced (if it has not already switched). If possible, always
replace the standby Controller.
NOTE:
If a fan faceplate is installed, the replacement Controller card must be a version

Configuration for SNMP
Configuration for SNMP
Several basic settings are required before you can use the SNMP facilities provided by the Wide Bank
28 DS3. Basic settings must be initially configured through the Command Line Interface (CLI). These
settings are the Wide Bank IP address, Subnet mask, Default gateway, NMS IP Address, system name,
location, and contact. The default get, set, and trap community strings are “public” and can be changed
by the SNMP manager after completing the basic configuration.
The Wide Bank 28 DS3 contains an SNMP MIB agent that supports RFC 1213 (general), RFC 1406
(DS1 and E1), and RFC 1407 (DS3).
The Wide Bank also contains Enterprise MIBs that enhances the SNMP operation of the Wide Bank
(see Carrier Access DS3 Multiplexer Enterprise MIBs on page 11-5).
In a point-to-point application with another Wide Bank 28 DS3 running in C-bit framing mode, the DS3
terminal-to-terminal data link can be used to remotely manage the far-end terminal. See Configuring IP
and PPP Addresses on page 6-15 for information on how to use PPP over the DS3 data link to establish
an SNMP session with a remote Wide Bank 28 DS3.
Basic Configuration Parameters
Wide Bank IP Address
The Internet address identifies the Wide Bank on a TCP/IP based network. This field is
required. Each Wide Bank on the network must have a unique IP address.
Subnet Mask
Networks that require further partitioning use subnet masks to perform subnet routing. These
values indicate which part of your IP address is a network address and which part is a node
address.
Default Gateway
This is the IP address of a default gateway on your logical network. A TCP/IP gateway (router)
allows you to communicate outside your local network (subnet) by forwarding information to
another network. The gateway must be on your logical network, and the network portion of the
address should be the same as the network portion of your IP address.
Network Management Station (NMS) IP Address
This is the address of the Network Management Station (NMS) that is used to manage the
SNMP sessions. This address is required by Wide Bank for reporting of trap events. There can
be as many as 3 NMS addresses configured.
System Name
The system Name is a string of up to 255 characters that is the assigned administrative name
for this managed node.

Configuration for SNMP
Location
This is a string of up to 255 characters that describes the physical location of this node.
Contact
This is a string of up to 255 characters that identifies the contact person for this managed node,
together with information on how to contact this person.
Basic Configuration from the CLI
1. Configure the Wide Bank network IP interface values. For example:
(A:Active)> ip address 192.168.20.10
(A:Active)> ip mask 255.255.255.0
(A:Active)> ip gateway 192.168.20.1
2. Configure the IP Addresses of up to three NMS systems that the Wide Bank will report traps
to. For example:
(A:Active)> ip nms1 192.168.20.3
(A:Active)> ip nms2 192.168.20.4
(A:Active)> ip nms3 192.168.20.5
3. Configure SNMP system group information contained in RFC-1213. Enter values for the name,
location, and contact. For example:
(A:Active)> SNMP name "Wide Bank 28 DS3"
(A:Active)> SNMP location "Acme Corp: telephone closet"
(A:Active)> SNMP contact "John Doe, Acme Corp (303)555-5678"

Figure 11-1 SNMP Link
1. Verify that the IP cable is connected to the LAN.
2. From your computer or Network Management Station (NMS), send a Ping request toward the
Wide Bank. For example:
ping 192.168.20.10
Pinging 192.168.20.10 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 192.168.20.10: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128
3. Verify that the Wide Bank replies to the Ping request, as in the example above.
4. Now validate that your management station can be seen by the Wide Bank. Use the Wide Bank
CLI ping command to send a Ping request toward the NMS. For example:
(A:Active)> ping 192.168.20.30
Pinging 192.168.20.30 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 192.168.20.30: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128

Standard Traps
Authentication Failure Trap
An authenticationFailure trap indicates that the sending protocol entity is the addressee of a
protocol message that is not properly authenticated. While implementations of the SNMP must
be capable of generating this trap, they must also be capable of suppressing the emission of such
traps via an implementation-specific mechanism.
Events that cause an authenticationFailure Trap:
Change node object definition that is not supported by SNMP.
For example, at the SNMP Manager Edit object's community parameters for “get” function
from “public” to “private” (if WB is set to getcomm = “public”). This will generate an
authenticationFailure trap message.

Alarm Reporting
Overview
Overview
The Wide Bank reports alarms in several ways. First, there are LEDs that indicate that alarm events have
occurred. Second, the alarm events that occur are entered into an event log. Third, certain SNMP traps
are generated when alarms occur. Finally, the Wide Bank reports alarms via the Transaction Language
One (TL1) messaging system, in compliance with:
Telcordia GR-474, Network Maintenance: Alarm and Control for Network Elements
Telcordia GR-820, Generic Digital Transmission Surveillance
The Wide Bank alarms are categorized as either Critical, Major, or Minor. Critical alarms are those that
will adversely affect traffic at the DS3 level. Major alarms are those that adversely affect traffic at the
low-speed (DS1 or E1) level. Minor alarms do not affect traffic but do affect standby circuits.
Critical, Major and Minor Alarms
NOTE:
The following information and charts are based on the default values assigned
to the alarm severities. Many of the alarm conditions can be assigned a different alarm
severity by using the TL1 command SET-ATTR-<AIDType> on page 9-75.
The chart on the following page shows the alarm conditions that generate critical and major/minor
alarms.
Critical Alarms. Critical alarm events cause the Critical Alarm LED to light red, the critical
alarm relay contacts to activate, and the appropriate log entries to be recorded.
Major and Minor Alarms. Major/ minor alarm events cause the Major/Minor Alarm LED to
light red (major) or yellow (minor), the major/minor alarm relay contacts to activate, and
appropriate log entries to be recorded.
Alarm Cleared. When the alarm condition no longer exists, the LED and the relay contacts will
deactivate.
Alarm Cutoff (ACO). You can override the alarm condition, turn off the LED, and deactivate the
relay contacts by pressing the ACO switch on the front control panel, or by issuing the aco
command from the Command Line Interface. ACO is a momentary action, and does not affect
subsequent alarm reporting.

Alarm Reporting
DS3 Far-End Alarms and Control (FEAC)
DS3 Far-End Alarms and Control (FEAC)
Far-end alarms are events that occur at a remote location and are reported to the Wide Bank 28 DS3
over the DS3 link. This feature and the associated commands require the DS3 to be set for C-bit framing.
Far-End Alarm Transmission
When there is a far-end alarm condition, code words are transmitted continuously for the duration
of the alarm, or for a minimum of 10 code words, whichever is longer. Only the highest priority
alarm is transmitted. If a high priority alarm occurs while a low priority alarm is active, only the
higher priority alarm will be sent. When no alarm is being transmitted, the far-end alarm signal
contains all ones. Absence of a far-end alarm signal implies no far-end alarm exists.
Far-End Alarm Reporting
The 11 far-end alarms are treated as MINOR alarms but are reported as events in TL1 (see Alarm
and Event Message Parameters on page 9-107). Thus, when an alarm occurs the non-critical alarm
LED goes to YELLOW, the non-critical alarm contact is activated, an automatic TL1 message is
generated, and the alarm is entered in the Event Log. The current far-end alarm will also be
displayed by the alarms and status ds3far commands for DS3 far-end alarms.
TL1 Alarm Reporting
Transaction Language One (TL1) automatic outbound alarm messaging is a standards-based ASCII
management language defined for TL1-based operations and support systems such as the Telcordia
NMA™ network monitoring and fault management system.With this feature, the Wide Bank will
integrate into TL1 alarm-managed networks to provide notification of network and equipment
conditions. See TL1 Automatic Messages on page 9-101.
TL1 Automatic Messages
TL1 automatic messages are used to automatically report alarms and other events detected by the Wide
Bank 28 DS3. The Wide Bank supports the reporting of alarmed and non-alarmed events using the
message formats defined by Telcordia GR-833-CORE, 1996. OSS’s such as Telcordia’s NMA system
are able to use these messages to provide trouble reports to the network operations center. For a detailed
description of the Wide Bank messages, see TL1 Automatic Messages on page 9-101.
You can establish a TL1 session through a TCP connection through TCP port, the Asynchronous RS232 TL1 port, or a terminal-to-terminal session when running in C-bit framing mode. See Connecting
and Configuring for TL1 on page 9-9.

Definitions
10Base-T
An IEEE standard for operating Ethernet local area networks (LANs) on twisted-pair
cabling using the home run method of wiring (the same as the phone company uses) and a
wiring hub that contains electronics performing similar functions to a central telephone
switch. The full name for the standard is IEEE 802.3 10Base-T.
Add/Drop
The process where a part of the information carried in a transmission system is
demultiplexed (dropped) at an intermediate point and different information is multiplexed
(added) for subsequent transmission. The remaining traffic passes straight through the
multiplexer without additional processing.
Add/Drop
Multiplexer
ADM. A multiplexer, like a terminal multiplexer, capable of extracting and inserting
lower-rate signals from a higher-rate multiplexed signal without completely
demultiplexing the signal.
Address Resolution
Protocol
ARP. A protocol used to map IP addresses to Ethernet addresses.
Alarm Indication
Signal
AIS. The DS3 AIS is framed with “stuck stuffing.” This implies that it has a valid
Msubframe alignments bits, M-frame alignment bits, and P bits. The information bits are
set to a 1010 sequence, starting with a one (1) after each M-subframe alignment bit, Mframe alignment bit, X bit, P bit, and C bit. The C bits are all set to zero giving what is called
“stuck stuffing.” The X bits are set to one. The DS3 AIS defect is declared after DS3 AIS
is present in contiguous M-frames for a time equal to or greater than T, where
0.2 ms ≤ T ≤ 100 ms. The DS3 AIS defect is terminated after AIS is absent in contiguous
M-frames for a time equal to or greater than T.
Alternate Mark
Inversion
AMI. An AMI encoded signal is a bipolar pseudo-ternary signal conveying binary digits
(bits) in which successive “marks” are normally of alternating, positive and negative,
polarity. This is the traditional method of line encoding used with bipolar DS1 (T1) signals.
However, use of AMI does not preclude long strings of zeros being sent in the signal
entering the public network from the DTE in violation of the pulse density requirements
mandated in FCC Rules Part 68 and AT&T Publication 62411.
Asynchronous
A network where transmission system payloads are not synchronized and each network
terminal runs on its own clock.
Asynchronous
Transfer Mode
ATM. A multiplexing/switching technique in which information is organized into fixedlength cells with each cell consisting of an identification header field and an information
field. The transfer mode is asynchronous in the sense that the use of the cells depends on
the required or instantaneous bit rate.
Attenuation
Reduction of signal magnitude or increased signal loss, usually expressed in decibels (dB).
Authentication
Process whereby a received message is associated with a specific originating entity.
Wide Bank 28 DS3 - Release 2.4
July 2004
Glossary-5
Glossary
Authorization
Process whereby an access policy determines if an entity is permitted to perform an
operation.
Automatic
Protection Switching
APS. The ability of a network element to detect a failed working line and switch the service
to a spare (protection ) line. 1+1 APS pairs a protection line with each working line. 1:n
APS provides one protection line for every n working lines.
Bandwidth
Information-carrying capacity of a communication channel expressed in bits or bytes per
second. Analog bandwidth is the range of signal frequencies that can be transmitted by a
communication channel or network.
Bidirectional
Operating in both directions. Bidirectional APS allows protection switching to be initiated
by either end of the line.
Bipolar Violation
BPV. A violation of the T1 bipolar AMI transmission pattern in which succeeding “ones”
(pluses) are sent at opposite polarities. A BPV normally indicates a transmission error.
However, B8ZS patterns contain bipolar violations, which are not counted as errors. For
B3ZS (or HDB3) coded signals, a bipolar violation error event is the occurrence of a pulse
of the same polarity as the previous pulse without being part of the zero substitution code.
For B3ZS (or HDB3) coded signals, a bipolar violation error event may also include other
error patterns such as three (four) or more consecutive zeros and incorrect polarity.
Bipolar with 3-Zero
Substitution
B3ZS. An AMI line code with the substitution of a unique code to replace occurrences of
three consecutive zero signal elements. Each block of three successive zeros is replaced by
00V or B0V, where B represents an inserted non-zero signal element conforming to the
AMI rule, and V represents a non-zero signal element that is a bipolar violation. The choice
of 00V or B0V is made so that the polarity of successive V elements alternatives to avoid
introducing a DC component to the signal. An equivalent specification is that the number
of B pulses between consecutive V pulses is odd.
Bipolar with 8-Zero
Substitution
B8ZS. A line coding scheme used to avoid long strings of zeros in a bipolar DS1 signal
entering the network from the DTE. Every string of eight zeros is replaced by a special code
(token) for transmission over networks that are sensitive to long strings of zeros. The code
contains a pattern of bipolar violations that is identified by the recipient and then removed
in the decoding process to recreate the original string of zeros.
Bit Error Rate
BER. The number of coding violations detected in a unit of time, usually one second. BER
is the ratio of errored bits received to the total bits transmitted. Bits Per Second The
transmission rate for digital information.
Building Integrated
Timing Supply
BITS. A master timing supply for a network in a building or office. The BITS receives
timing from a source outside the building and provides DS1 and DS0 synchronization
throughout the building’s network.
C-bit Coding
Violation
CCV. For C-bit Parity and Syntran DS3 applications, this is the count of coding violations
reported via the C-bits. For C-bit Parity, it is a count of CP-bit parity errors occurring in the
accumulation interval. For SYNTRAN, it is a count of CRC-9 errors occurring in the
accumulation interval.

applications. This gauge is not incremented when UASs are counted.
C-bit Parity Framing
A DS3 frame format with overhead communications bits. Unlike M23 framing, C-bit parity
framing does not require a stuffing indicator (stuffing is always present), so the C-bits are
used to carry alarms, data, and status information. See Stuffing.
C-bit Severely

CRC-6
A six-bit Cyclical Redundancy Check code embedded in the ESF frame and used to verify
data transmission. If the transmitted and received CRC-6 codes match, it is highly probable
that the ESF field arrived without error; however, if the CRC-6s do not match, one or more
errors have occurred during the transmission of that particular ESF field. CRC-6 error
events are logged into internal pairs of registers within the CSU and may be recalled
through the 4 Kbps Facility Data Link (FDL) by the customer and the carrier.

Line Terminating
Equipment
LTE. Network elements such as add/drop multiplexers or digital cross-connect systems
which can access, generate, and process Line Overhead.
Loss of Signal
LOS. The DS3 LOS defect is declared upon observing 175 ± 75 contiguous pulse positions
with no pulses of either positive or negative polarity. The DS3 LOS defect is terminated
upon observing an average pulse density of at least 33% over a period of 175 ± 75
contiguous pulse positions starting with the receipt of pulse.
M23 Framing
A DS3 frame format that uses the overhead C-bits to indicate stuffing. All three Cbits in a
subframe are set to one (1) if stuffing occurs, or to zero (0) if stuffing does not occur. See
Stuffing.
Megabits per second
Mbps. one million of bits per second.
Multiplex
MUX. To transmit two or more signals over a single channel.
Multiplexer
A device for combining several channels to be carried by one line or fiber.

OSI Seven-Layer
Model
An Open System Interconnection (OSI) standard architecture for data communications.
Layers define hardware and software required for multi-vendor information processing
equipment to be mutually compatible. The seven layers from lowest to highest are:
physical, link, network, transport, session, presentation, and application.
Out of Frame
OOF. A DS3 defect that is detected when any three or more errors in sixteen or fewer
consecutive F-bits occur within a DS3 M-frame. An OOF defect may also be called a
Severely Errored Frame (SEF) defect. An OOF defect is cleared when reframe occurs. A
DS3 Loss of Frame (LOF) failure is declared when the DS3 OOF defect is consistent for 2
to 10 seconds. The DS3 OOF defect ends when reframe occurs. The DS3 LOF failure is
cleared when the DS3 OOF defect is absent for 10 to 20 seconds.
Overhead
Extra bits in a digital stream used to carry information besides traffic signals. Orderwire,
for example, would be considered overhead information.
P-bit Coding
Violation
PCV. For all DS3 applications, a coding violation error event is a P-bit Parity Error event.
A P-bit Parity Error event is the occurrence of a received P-bit code on the DS3 M-frame
that is not identical to the corresponding locally-calculated code.
P-bit Errored
Seconds
A second with one or more PCVs OR one or more Out of Frame defects OR a detected
incoming AIS. This gauge is not incremented when UASs are counted.

Packet Switching
An efficient method for breaking down and handling high-volume traffic in a network. A
transmission technique that segments and routes information into discrete units. Packet
switching allows for efficient sharing of network resources as packets from different
sources can all be sent over the same channel in the same bit stream.
Parity Check
An error-checking scheme which examines the number of transmitted bits in a block which
hold the value one. For even parity, an overhead parity bit is set to either one or zero to
make the total number of transmitted ONES an even number. For odd parity, the parity bit
is set to make the total number of ONES transmitted an odd number.
Path
A logical connection between two points in a network, which may follow many physical
paths.
Payload
The portion of the digital signal, excluding overhead, that is available to carry voice and
data services to the subscriber.
Ping
An Internet application used to test IP-level connectivity. Ping sends packets toward an
Internet device address and then measures the round-trip delay time required for the device
to reply.
Point of Presence
POP. A point in the network where inter-exchange carrier facilities like DS3 or OC-N meet
with access facilities managed by telephone companies or other service providers.
Poll
An individual control message from a central controller to an individual station on a
multipoint network inviting that station to send.
Remote Alarm
Indication
RAI. A code sent upstream in a DSn network as a notification that a failure condition has
been declared downstream. (RAI signals were previously referred to as Yellow signals.)
Remote Defect
Indication
RDI. A signal returned to the transmitting Terminating Equipment upon detecting a Loss
of Signal, Loss of Frame, or AIS defect. RDI was previously known as FERF.
Remote Error
Indication
REI. An indication returned to a transmitting node (source) that an errored block has been
detected at the receiving node (sink). This indication was formerly known as Far End Block
Error (FEBE).
Remote Failure
Indication
RFI. A failure is a defect that persists beyond the maximum time allocated to the
transmission system protection mechanisms. When this situation occurs, an RFI is sent to
the far end and will initiate a protection switch if this function has been enabled.
Severely Errored
Framing Seconds
A second with one or more Out of Frame defects OR a detected incoming AIS.
Simple Network
Management
Protocol
SNMP. An application layer providing connection-less protocol and running over UDP
(User Datagram Protocol), that functions as TCP’s stack network management protocol
between a management station and a SNMP agent resident in a managed device. For
managing TCP/IP-based networks, SNMP is the de facto standard. SNMP is designed to
implement an automated network-management system for controlling and performance

Slip
An overflow (deletion) or underflow (repetition) of one frame of a signal in a receiving
buffer.
Stratum
Stratum or Stratum Level refers to the accuracy of the clock source used to synchronize
SONET communications systems. Accuracy is important in maintaining communications
across a network. During local network failures, a backup clock source is used to maintain
network timing. But when the backup clock becomes temporarily isolated because of an
equipment or line failure, the clock phase will drift slowly until the communications link
eventually falls out of synchronization. Stratum 1 is the primary SONET clock source
obtained from a Cesium beam time standard located in Paris, France. Stratum 2 is less
accurate but can keep a network synchronized for 3 to 5 days. Stratum 3 and Stratum 4 are
each less accurate (and less expensive) and can provide backups for shorter time periods.
STS-1
Synchronous Transport Signal level 1. The basic SONET building block signal transmitted
at 51.84 Mb/s data rate.
STS-N
Synchronous Transport Signal level N. The signal obtained by multiplexing integer
multiples (N) of STS-1 signals together.
Stuffing
M13 multiplexing uses bit stuffing to bring each asynchronous DS1/DS2 up to a common
data rate for transmission. M13 multiplexing forces the seven DS2s to be synchronous to
each other at a rate that causes 100-percent pulse stuffing in the M23 frame. This allows the
“stuff” indicator bits in the M23 frame to be used as a maintenance link between the end
points. The C-bit frame does not have a “stuff” indicator because stuffing is always present.
Subnet Mask
A bit-mapped number, in xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format, indicating which bits in an IP address
identify the physical network and which bits should be ignored.
Superframe
SF. Any structure made of multiple lower-rate frames. A DS1 frame format (also called
D4) comprising 193 bit positions used to multiplex 24 DS0 channels.
Synchronous
A network where transmission system payloads are synchronized to a master (network)
clock and traced to a reference clock.
Synchronous Digital
Hierarchy
SDH. The ITU-T defined world standard of transmission whose base transmission rate is
52 Mb/s (STM-0) and is equivalent to SONET's STS-1 or OC-1 transmission rate. SDH
standards were published in 1989 to address interworking between the ITU-T and ANSI
transmission hierarchies.
Synchronous Optical
Network
SONET. A standard for optical transport that defines optical carrier levels and their
electrically equivalent synchronous transport signals. SONET allows for a multi-vendor
environment and positions the network for transport of new services, synchronous
networking, and enhanced OAM&P.
Syntran
Synchronous Transmission of restructured DS3 signals in North American format at
44.736 Mbps.
Telnet
A telecommunications network application protocol providing virtual terminal service
within the Internet protocol suite.

Terminal
Multiplexer
Terminal Multiplexers provide simple add/drop multiplexing of SONET and standard DS1/
DS3 channels onto a single SONET bearer.
Trap
A system event that results in a message being sent to a Network Management System.
Unavailable Seconds
UAS. The number of seconds that an interface is unavailable. The DS3 interface is said to
be unavailable from the onset of 10 contiguous PSESs, or the onset of the condition leading
to a failure. If the condition leading to the failure was immediately preceded by one or more
contiguous PSESs, then the DS3 interface unavailability starts from the onset of these
PSESs. Once unavailable, and if no failure is present, the DS3 interface becomes available
at the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with no PSESs. Once unavailable, and if a failure is
present, the DS3 interface becomes available at the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with no
PSESs, if the failure clearing time is less than or equal to 10 seconds. If the failure clearing
time is more than 10 seconds, the DS3 interface becomes available at the onset of 10
contiguous seconds with no Press, on the onset period leading to the successful clearing
condition, whichever occurs later. With respect to the DS3 error counts, all counters are
incremented while the DS3 interface is deemed available. While the interface is deemed
unavailable, the only count that is incremented is UASs.
User Datagram
Protocol
UDP. A transport protocol offering connectionless-mode service within the Internet
protocol suite.
Wideband
Services requiring 1.5 to 50 Mb/s transport capacity.
