Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
The ADC® Campus-Flex® RS (HDSL Rate-Selectable) Interface Card
provides a connection between a High-bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line
(HDSL) and a network or other digital equipment.
The product’s unique ability to accept data streams through one DSX-1 and
two high-speed serial interfaces allows you to split 24 channels of voice, data,
or video signals among one or more of the ports.
The HDSL line always operates at a constant T-1 (1.544 Mbps) rate. The data
ports of the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card are not limited to this rate.
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card installs into one of the following to
create a Campus-RS system:
•
Campus-Star chassis, along with a Campus-RS® Line Unit
•
Campus-RS Desktop Unit
This comprises half of the HDSL transmission system. When connected to
another Campus-RS or to a Campus-T1® Desktop Unit or Line Unit, the
Campus-RS system can transport digitized voice, data, and video signals over
existing copper wire at T1 rate.
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card must be installed in a
Campus-RS Desktop Unit or with a Campus-RS Line Unit. It
cannot be installed in an older Campus desktop unit or with an
older Campus line unit.

About the Product
INTERFACES SUPPORTED
For maximum flexibility, the two data ports of the Campus-Flex RS Interface
Card support the following interfaces:
•
V.35
•
RS-530
•
RS-232
•
RS-530A
•
RS-449
•
X.21
A separate adapter is available for each interface. This adapter converts
signals from each of the two serial data ports of the Campus-Flex RS Interface
Card into the interface format. Select the adapter(s) according to the network
equipment to which you are connecting the card. See “Pinouts” on page A-3
for a listing of each type of interface.
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card converts incoming data, control signals,
and timing into the card’s internal format. Then the desktop unit or line unit
converts this format to an HDSL/SDSL line format for high-speed
transmission over a local telephone-grade copper network.

About the Product
CAMPUS-FLEX ARCHITECTURE
An HDSL transmission line connects two Campus-RS units. The
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card provides a link between the system HDSL
transceiver and the local communication equipment. The figure below shows
a simplified system architecture.

Video
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card provides full-duplex transmission at a
maximum rate of 1.544 Mbps (T1 rate). During normal operation, the local
site data communication equipment supplies digitized data streams to the
local Campus unit DSX-1 and data ports. The local unit multiplexes DS0
channels from the DSX-1 port and digital data from the data ports to channels
in the HDSL frame. Then the remote Campus unit demultiplexes the data
from each timeslot of the HDSL frame, routes it to the appropriate port, and
transmits the data to the remote equipment.

Unlike other Campus-RS products, the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card
supports only a Standard Mode T1 rate. To connect the Campus-Flex RS
Interface Card to a different Campus-RS product, you must set the following
configuration options on the remote interface card:
•
Set the HDSL Operating Mode to Standard Mode
•
Set the Standard Mode HDSL Rate to T1.
See the remote interface card user manual to set these configuration options.
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card is also compatible, over the HDSL link,
with the Campus-T1, as in the following illustration.

SETTING THE PORT TYPE CONFIGURATION
If you have mapped one or more timeslots (channels) to a data port, you must
configure the data port to support the interface type required by your
equipment. Data port type options are: Disabled, V.35, RS-449, RS-530,
RS-530A, X.21, or RS-232.
Before configuring the port type, make sure that the adapter
cables are attached to the appropriate port (Data Port 1 or
Data Port 2) and that the cables are properly attached to the
host equipment. Verify the physical port type (V.35, RS-449,
etc.) of the host equipment. Equipment damage could occur
if the ports are incorrectly configured.
To configure the data port to support the required interface type:
1

CONFIGURING THE PRIMARY TIMING SOURCE
The primary timing source determines the timing for the entire HDSL system.
Timing can come from any one of five parts of the Campus system:
•
DSX receives timing from the device connected to the DSX-1 port
(default setting)
•
PT1 receives timing from the device connected to Data Port 1
•
PT2 receives timing from the device connected to Data Port 2
•
Internal receives timing from the internal oscillator of the Campus-RS
desktop or line unit
•
HDSL receives timing over the HDSL line
Observe the following guidelines when configuring the primary timing
source:
•
If the DSX-1 port on a unit is enabled, the Primary Timing Source must
be set to DSX-1. This means that if the DSX-1 port is enabled on both the
local and remote ports, both units must have the Primary Timing Source
set to DSX-1.
•
The DSX-1 ports support independent transmit and receive timing.
Therefore, if only the DSX-1 ports are used on both units (that is, the Data
ports are disabled), the host devices connected to the DSX-1 ports may
both be configured as timing sources. This configuration will work only if
the host equipment also supports independent transmit and receive timing.
If the devices do not support independent timing, one of them must be
configured as the circuit timing source and the other one must be
configured for receive (interface) timing.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
3-7
Setting Up the Campus-RS System
If the DSX-1 port and either Data port on a unit are enabled,
the circuit must have only one timing source. That is, only
one of the host devices connected to the DSX-1 ports may be
configured as the circuit timing source; the other DSX-1
device must be configured for receive (interface) timing.
For the case where only the data ports are used and the DSX-1 ports on both
the local and remote units are disabled, see Chapter 9, Clock and Timing
Source Options. Chapter 9 also provides reference material with examples of
timing configurations.
Internal backup timing provides timing if the primary timing source is lost
and if the DSX-1 port, Data Port 1, or Data Port 2 is selected as the primary
timing source. If internal backup timing is disabled, the primary timing source
retains its current setting.
If the primary timing source is lost and internal backup timing
is enabled, the card does not return to its original primary
timing source when the source is reacquired. You must
reconfigure the primary timing source manually if it is ever
lost.
To set the primary timing source:
1
Press Escape until CAMPUS RS I/F: FLEX displays.
2
Press Next until DATA PORT CONFIG & STATUS displays, then press
Enter to display the DS-0s menu.
3

SETTING THE TRANSMIT CLOCK
If either Data Port 1 or Data Port 2 is configured for operation, you must
verify the setting of the Transmit Clock option for each active port. The
Transmit Clock option determines how the Send Data (SD) signal is sampled
if the Timing Source is set to Internal or HDSL.
The Transmit Clock option has two settings: External or Internal.
•
With the External setting, SD is sampled based on the clock transitions
on the Terminal Timing (TT) input. This is the recommended setting if
the terminal equipment attached to the port provides a TT input.
•
With the Internal setting, SD is sampled based on the clock transitions on
the Serial Clock Transmit (SCT) output. This option must be selected if
the terminal equipment does not provide a TT input.

Setting the Rate Multiplier to 64 kbps or 56 kbps
The HDSL line always operates at a constant rate. The data ports of the
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card are not limited to this rate. Their rate equals
the number of channels assigned to the data port multiplied by either 56 kbps
or 64 kbps. The default is 64 kbps, but your selection depends on the
requirements of your local equipment.
If you need assign timeslots (map channels) to one or both of the data ports,
see “Assigning Timeslots to Ports” on page 3-3.
The Rate Multiplier determines the size of each data packet that is transmitted

Setting the Transmit Clock to External or Internal
If either Data Port 1 or Data Port 2 is configured for operation, you must
verify the setting of the Transmit Clock option for each active port. The
Transmit Clock option determines how the Send Data (SD) signal is sampled
if the Timing Source is set to Internal or HDSL.
The Transmit Clock option has two settings: External or Internal.
•
With the External setting, SD is sampled based on the clock transitions
on the Terminal Timing (TT) input. This is the recommended setting if
the terminal equipment attached to the port provides a TT input.
•
With the Internal setting, SD is sampled based on the clock transitions on
the Serial Clock Transmit (SCT) output. This option must be selected if
the terminal equipment does not provide a TT input.
For reference material about the Transmit Clock option, see “Transmit Clock
Option” on page 9-6.
If Data Port 1 or Data Port 2 is selected as the timing source, the Transmit
clock setting for that port is automatically set to External, but the Transmit
Clock option for the other port must be set. If you set the timing source option
to DSX-1, HDSL, or Internal, you must set the Transmit Clock option for any

INVERTING THE TRANSMIT CLOCK
Some circumstances make inverting one or more of the following clock
signals either desirable or necessary:
•
Terminal Timing (TT) - Input Clock
•
Serial Clock Transmit (SCT) - Output Transmit (TX) Clock
•
Serial Clock Receive (SCR) - Output Receive (RX) Clock
This could be true if the host equipment provides inverted clock signals, if the
differential clock signals are switched in the data cable, or if there is excessive
clock delay. The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card allows you to invert any of
these clock signals for one or both data ports by changing the appropriate
Invert Clock option.
For physical-layer protocols that have unbalanced (single-ended) clock
signals, the Invert Clock option has the effect of simply inverting the clock
signal. This appears as a 180° phase delay. For physical-layer protocols that
have balanced (two-wire) clock signals, the Invert Clock option has the effect
of switching the inverting and non-inverting contacts.
Each Invert Clock option has the following two settings:
OFF leaves the output clock in its normal, non-inverted, state
ON inverts the clock signal or, for the TT input, inverts the input signal
internally

CONFIGURING OUTPUT CONTROL SIGNALS
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card provides the following four standard
output control signals:
•
Clear to Send (CTS or CS)
•
Data Set Ready (DSR), also called Data Mode (DM) and DCE Ready
•
Receive Line Signal Detect (RLSD), also called Receiver Ready (RR)
•
Loopback Test (LT), also called Test Mode (TM)
The operation of each control signal depends upon the specific operating
mode selected.
Each control signal can be individually configured, on one or both data ports,
for one of the following three modes (ON, OFF, or Standard). The default is
Standard.
4-14
•
ON forces the control signal to remain on permanently, regardless of any
other control signal activity or changes in unit status.
•
OFF forces the control signal to remain off permanently, regardless of
any other control signal activity or changes in unit status.
•
Standard (STD, default) sets the signal according to the standard rules for
control signal operation found in RS-449 and RS-530 interfaces, as
follows:
–
CTS follows the state of the Request to Send (RTS) input signal.
When the RTS input is turned on, the CTS output is also turned on.
When the RTS input is turned off, the CTS output is turned off. This
type of operation is consistent with standard operation for
non-switched communications equipment operating on a dedicated
private channel, such as HDSL.
–
Data Set Ready (DSR) follows the state of the Data Terminal Ready
(DTR) input signal. When the DTR input is turned on, the DSR
output is also turned on. When the DTR input is turned off, the DSR
output is turned off. This type of operation is consistent with
standard operation for non-switched communications equipment
operating on a dedicated private channel, such as HDSL.

CONFIGURING AS A MASTER OR SLAVE UNIT
The Transceiver Mode option determines the hierarchy of the two
Campus-RS units when they are attempting to establish an HDSL link.
The Transceiver Mode option has three settings: Auto, Master, and Slave.
The default is Auto.
•
If the local unit is set to Master, it initiates the HDSL link. The remote
unit must then be set to Slave or Auto.
•
If the local unit is set to Slave, it waits for the remote unit to initiate the
HDSL link. The remote unit must then be set to Master or Auto.
•
If a unit is set to Auto (default), it automatically switches between
Master and Slave until the HDSL link is established. The setting of the
other Campus unit is irrelevant.
Unless you have an important reason for doing otherwise,
ADC recommends leaving the Transceiver Mode option set to
Auto.

Configuring Alarm Thresholds
Alarm thresholds determine the level at which an alarm condition is reached.
HDSL alarm thresholds have the following two types:
•
Link ES threshold determines the number of errored seconds (ES) that
must occur within a 15-minute period to trigger an alarm. You can set
this threshold to 17 or 170 errored seconds or you can disable this alarm.
•
Margin threshold determines the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) margin, in
dB, that triggers an alarm on the HDSL link that, if reached, triggers the
alarm.You can set this threshold anywhere between 1 dB and 25 dB, in
1 dB increments, or you can disable this alarm.

SETTING THE PRIMARY TIMING SOURCE
The primary timing source determines the timing for the entire HDSL system.
Timing can come from any one of five parts of the Campus system:
•
Internal receives timing from the internal oscillator of the Campus unit.
•
HDSL receives timing over the HDSL line.
•
DSX-1 receives timing through the Campus-Flex DSX-1 port (default).
•
Port 1 receives timing through the first data port.
•
Port 2 receives timing through the second data port.
Observe the following guidelines when configuring the primary timing
source:
•
If the DSX-1 port on a unit is enabled, the Primary Timing Source must
be set to DSX-1. This means that if the DSX-1 port is enabled on both the
local and remote ports, both units must have the Primary Timing Source
set to DSX-1.
•
The DSX-1 ports support independent transmit and receive timing.
Therefore, if only the DSX-1 ports are used on both units (that is, the Data
ports are disabled), the host devices connected to the DSX-1 ports may
both be configured as timing sources. This configuration will work only if
the host equipment also supports independent transmit and receive timing.
If the devices do not support independent timing, one of them must be
configured as the circuit timing source and the other one must be
configured for receive (interface) timing.
If the DSX-1 port and either Data port on a unit are enabled,
the circuit must have only one timing source. That is, only
one of the host devices connected to the DSX-1 ports may be
configured as the circuit timing source; the other DSX-1
device must be configured for receive (interface) timing.
For the case where only the data ports are used and the DSX-1 ports on both
the local and remote units are disabled, see Chapter 9, Clock and Timing
Source Options. Chapter 9 also provides reference material with examples of
timing configurations.

Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual

Internal backup timing provides timing if the primary source is lost. If backup
timing is enabled and the primary timing source is lost, the Campus-Flex RS
Interface Card switches to internal timing.
If the primary timing source is lost and internal backup timing
is enabled, the card does not return to its original primary
timing source when the source is reacquired. You must
reconfigure the primary timing source manually if it is lost.

Setting the Rate Multiplier to 64 kbps or 56 kbps
The HDSL line always operates at a constant rate. The data ports of the
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card are not limited to this rate. Their rate equals
the number of channels assigned to the data port multiplied by either 64 kbps
or 56 kbps. The default is 64 kbps, but your selection depends on the
requirements of your local equipment.
See “Assigning Timeslots to Ports” on page 3-3 to assign timeslots (map
channels) to one or both of the data ports. The Rate Multiplier determines the
size of each data packet that is transmitted or received through the data ports.
It must be set individually for each data port to which channels are mapped.
Use the following procedure to set the Rate Multiplier to either 64 kbps or 56
kbps:

Setting the Transmit Clock to External or Internal
If either Data Port 1 or Data Port 2 is configured for operation, you must
verify the setting of the Transmit Clock option for each active port. The
Transmit Clock option determines how the Send Data (SD) signal is sampled
if the Timing Source is set to Internal or HDSL.
The Transmit Clock option has two settings: External or Internal.
•
With the External setting, SD is sampled based on the clock transitions
on the Terminal Timing (TT) input. This is the recommended setting if
the terminal equipment attached to the port provides a TT input.
•
With the Internal setting, SD is sampled based on the clock transitions on
the Serial Clock Transmit (SCT) output. This option must be selected if
the terminal equipment does not provide a TT input.
If Data Port 1 or Data Port 2 is selected as the timing source, the Transmit
clock setting for that port is automatically set to External, but the Transmit
Clock option for the other port must be set. If you set the timing source option
to DSX-1, HDSL, or Internal, you must set the Transmit Clock option for any
active port.
To set the Transmit Clock option:
1
At the Port 1 Configuration menu (shown on page 5-26) or Port 2
Configuration menu, type 3 , then press ENTER . The Transmit Clock
option changes to the next available setting, one of the following:
External (default)
Internal
2
Repeat Step 1 until the Port 1 Configuration menu or Port 2
Configuration menu displays the desired Transmit Clock setting.
For details about the Transmit Clock option, see “Transmit Clock Option” on
page 9-6.

Inverting the Transmit Clock
There may be circumstances in which it is either desirable or necessary to
invert one or more of the following clocks:
•
Terminal Timing (TT) - Input Clock
•
Serial Clock Transmit (SCT) - Output Transmit (TX) Clock
•
Serial Clock Receive (SCR) - Output Receive (RX) Clock
This could be true if the host equipment provides inverted clock signals, if the
differential clock signals are switched in the data cable, or if there is excessive
clock delay. The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card allows you to invert any of
these clock signals for one or both data ports by changing the appropriate
Invert Clock option.
For physical-layer protocols that have unbalanced (single-ended) clock
signals, the Invert Clock option has the effect of simply inverting the clock
signal. This appears as a 180° phase delay. For physical-layer protocols that
have balanced (two-wire) clock signals, the Invert Clock option has the effect
of switching the inverting and non-inverting contacts.
Each Invert Clock option has the following two settings:
•
OFF (default) leaves the clock in its normal, non-inverted, state.
•
ON inverts the clock signal.
To invert a Transmit Clock for a data port:
1
At the Port 1 Configuration menu (shown on page 5-26) or Port 2
Configuration menu, type 4 , then press ENTER . The Invert Input Clock
option changes to the next available setting (OFF or ON).

Inverting Data Signals
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card allows you to invert the Send Data (SD)
and Receive Data (RD) signals for one or both data ports. Some protocols,
such as X.25, use this data inversion to satisfy the ones density requirement
of T1 lines operating with the line code option set to Alternate Mark Inversion
(AMI).
Unless specifically required by a protocol, do not use data
inversion.
The Data Inversion option has the following two settings:
•
OFF (default) leaves the Send Data (SD) and Receive Data (RD) signals
in their normal, non-inverted, state.
•
ON inverts the SD and RD signals.
To invert the SD and RD signals:
1
At the Port Configuration menu (shown on page 5-26), type 7 , then
press ENTER . The Invert Data option changes to the next available
setting (OFF or ON).
2
Repeat Step 1 until the Port Configuration Settings menu displays the
desired Invert Data setting.

Configuring the Output Control Signals
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card provides the following four standard
output control signals:
•
Clear to Send (CTS or CS)
•
Data Set Ready (DSR), also called Data Mode (DM) and DCE Ready
•
Receive Line Signal Detect (RLSD), also called Receiver Ready (RR)
•
Line Test (LT), also called Test Mode (TM)
The operation of each control signal depends upon the specific operating
mode selected.
Each output control signal can be individually configured, on one or both data
ports, for one of the following three modes (ON, OFF, or Standard). The
default is Standard (STD) for all four output control signals.
5-32
•
ON forces the control signal to remain on permanently, regardless of any
other control signal activity or changes in unit status.
•
OFF forces the control signal to remain off permanently, regardless of
any other control signal activity or change in unit status.
•
Standard (STD, default) sets the signal according to the standard rules for
control signal operation found in RS-449 and RS-530 interfaces, as
follows:
–
Clear to Send (CTS) follows the state of the Request to Send (RTS)
input signal. When the Request to Send (RTS) input is turned on, the
CTS output is turned on. When the RTS input is turned off, the CTS
output is turned off. This type of operation is consistent with
standard operation for non-switched communications equipment
operating on a dedicated private channel, such as HDSL.
–
Data Set Ready (DSR) follows the state of the Data Terminal Ready
(DTR) input signal. When the DTR input is turned on, the DSR
output is turned on. When the DTR input is turned off, the DSR
output is turned off. This type of operation is consistent with
standard operation for non-switched communications equipment
operating on a dedicated private channel, such as HDSL.
–
Receive Line Signal Detect (RLSD) is on as long as the HDSL link
is synchronized. If the HDSL link is not synchronized, then RLSD
is off.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
Configuring through an ASCII Terminal
–
Line Test (LT) is on whenever a loopback function is active at either
the local or remote unit. The LT signal is affected by both V.54
loopbacks and loopbacks that are initiated through the LCD or
terminal menus.
To configure the output control signal options, at the Port 1 Configuration
menu (shown on page 5-26) or Port 2 Configuration menu, do one of the
following:
•
for CTS, type 8 , then press ENTER to toggle among the three
modes: STD (default), ON, or OFF.
•
for DSR, type 9 , then press ENTER to toggle among the three
modes: STD (default), ON, or OFF.
•
for RLSD, type 1 0 , then press ENTER to toggle among the three
modes: STD (default), ON, or OFF.
•
for LT, type 1 1 , then press ENTER to toggle among the three
modes: STD (default), ON, or OFF.
If no output control signal settings display, the port is
disabled. See “Setting the Port Type Configuration” on page
4-8.
The selected control signal option changes to the next available setting.

CONFIGURING AS A MASTER OR SLAVE UNIT
The Transceiver Mode option determines the hierarchy of the two
Campus-RS units when they are attempting to establish an HDSL link.
The Transceiver Mode option has three settings: Auto, Master, and Slave.
•
If a unit is set to Auto (default), it automatically switches between
Master and Slave until the HDSL link is established. The setting of the
other Campus unit is irrelevant.
Unless you have an important reason for doing otherwise,
ADC recommends leaving the Transceiver Mode option set to
Auto.
•
If a unit is set to Master, it initiates the HDSL link. The other Campus
unit must be set to Slave or Auto.
•
If a unit is set to Slave, it waits for the other Campus unit to initiate the
HDSL link. The other unit must be set to Master or Auto.

Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
TESTING THE SYSTEM
(LOOPBACK TESTS)
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card supports a complete set of loopback
functions that allow you to test the data communication path between the host
equipment, the Campus unit, and the remote unit. You can use either the LCD
and menu buttons or an ASCII terminal to initiate loopback tests.
To use an LCD to initiate a loopback, see page “Initiating a Loopback
Condition” on page 4-27. To use an ASCII terminal to initiate a loopback, see
page “Configuring Loopbacks” on page 5-45.
Initiating a loopback test interrupts normal system operation, which causes
the Test LED on the Campus RS Desktop Unit or Line Unit front panel to turn
on. When the loopback is cancelled, the system automatically returns to
normal operation.
TYPES OF LOOPBACKS
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card supports the following loopback tests:
•
Local to Local on the DSX-1 Port, Data Port 1, or Data Port 2
•
Remote to Local on the remote DSX-1 Port, Data Port 1, or Data Port 2
Each loopback tests a different portion of the communication path, which lets
you isolate communication problems. For each test, the terms “local” and
“remote” are relative to the Campus unit from which you initiate the loopback
test.
Local to Local Loopbacks
The Local to Local loopback verifies that the local host equipment, local data
cable, and local interface card are installed and configured properly. The
remote host equipment is not involved in this type of loopback.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
7-1
Testing the System (Loopback Tests)
Remote to Local Loopbacks
The Remote to Local loopback tests the selected remote data port, the entire
data path inside the local and remote Campus units, the HDSL line, and the
HDSL transceiver of both units. Use this loopback to verify that the HDSL
line is operational and that the HDSL transceiver of the remote unit is
operational.
If the remote unit is not a Campus-Flex RS unit, not all the
remote loopback options are available. The remote loopbacks
available are determined by the remote interface card.
7-2
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
Testing the System (Loopback Tests)
CLEARING LOOPBACKS
You can clear a loopback test in the following two ways:
•
cancel the loopback manually from either the LCD or an ASCII terminal
•
set the Loopback Timeout option to cancel the loopback automatically
after a set period of time
Clearing Loopbacks Manually
You can clear a loopback from either the LCD or an ASCII terminal. To use
the LCD, see page “Clearing a Loopback” on page 4-29. To use an ASCII
terminal, see page “Terminating All Loopbacks” on page 5-47.
Loopback Timeout
When a loopback is in use, there is a possibility that it will be forgotten. If a
loopback is forgotten, the communication link remains down. To prevent this
from happening, you can set the Loopback Timeout configuration option. The
Loopback Timeout configuration option determines how long a loopback
remains active.
If you set the loopback timeout to None, loopbacks run until
you clear them manually or turn the unit off.
When the Loopback Timeout configuration option is set to 20, 60, or 120
minutes, the loopback is cancelled and normal communication resumes when
the set time has elapsed. When the option is set to None, the loopback remains
in effect until you cancel it manually.
To set the Loopback Timeout through the LCD, see page “Setting a Loopback
Timeout” on page 4-28. To set the Loopback Timeout through an ASCII
terminal, refer to page “Setting a Loopback Timeout” on page 5-48.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
7-3
Testing the System (Loopback Tests)
V.54 LOOPBACK SUPPORT
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card supports V.54-compliant loopbacks.
This lets you initiate loopback tests from a V.54-capable host device. Before
you can use V.54 loopbacks, you must enable V.54 loopback support. To do
so through the LCD menu, see page “Enabling or Disabling V.54 Loopback
Support” on page 4-30. To do so through an ASCII terminal, see page
“Enabling or Disabling V.54 Loopback Support” on page 5-48.
The V.54 support function is implemented through the following control
signals on the data port:
•
Local Loopback (LL) Signal (input)
•
Remote Loopback (RL) Signal (input)
•
Test Mode (TM) Signal (output), also called Line Test (LT)
Signal
Description
Local
When the host device activates the LL input, the Campus-Flex RS
Loopback Interface Card initiates a Local to Local loopback, as described on “Local
(LL)
to Local Loopbacks” on page 7-1. The card also turns on the TM output
signal to provide confirmation of the loopback. The TM signal and Local
to Local loopback remain active until the LL signal is turned off.
Remote
When the host device activates the RL input, the Campus-Flex RS
Loopback Interface Card initiates a Remote to Local loopback, as described on page
(RL)
7-2. The card also turns on the TM output signal to provide confirmation
of the loopback. The TM signal and Remote to Local loopback remain
active until the RL signal is turned off.
Test
Mode
(TM)
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card activates the TM signal in response
to activation of an LL or RL signal. The TM signal is also activated when
any other loopback is initiated from the LCD, ASCII terminal, or V.54
control signal from the remote unit. The TM signal indicates to the local
host device that a loopback test is active, regardless of how the test was
initiated.
During normal operation, when no loopback is active, all three signals are off.
When a V.54 loopback is in effect, the LL and RL input signals cannot be on
at the same time. For example, when the RL signal is active, the LL signal is
ignored.

TIMESLOT ASSIGNMENT
(CHANNEL MAPPING)
The 24 timeslots (channels) of the HDSL link carry voice, data, and/or video
signals from all three ports of the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card. You must
decide how to allocate the 24 timeslots among the three ports to suit your
needs. To map the channels, assign timeslots and ports on the Campus-Flex
RS Interface Card to individual HDSL channels. You can assign the 24
timeslots using either straight mapping or cross mapping.
You can assign timeslots through the LCD menus on the Desktop unit or
through an ASCII terminal connected to the Desktop unit or line unit installed
in the Campus-Star chassis.
•
To use the LCD menus to assign timeslots, see page “Assigning
Timeslots to Ports” on page 3-3.
•
To use an ASCII terminal to assign timeslots, see page “Assigning
Timeslots to Ports” on page 5-12.
STRAIGHT MAPPING
In straight mapping (straight timeslot assignment), channels and ports on the
local Campus-Flex RS Interface Card map directly to the corresponding
channels and ports on the remote Campus-Flex RS Interface Card.
The following illustration shows an example of a straight-mapped system:
•
Channels 1 through 12 on the local Campus-Flex RS Interface Card map
to the same channels on the remote Campus-Flex RS Interface Card over
the DSX-1 port.
•
Channels 13 through 19 on the local Campus-Flex RS Interface Card
map to the same channels on the remote card over Data Port 1 to transfer
392 kbps (56 x 7) or 448 kbps (64 x 7), depending on the rate multiplier.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
8-1
Timeslot Assignment (Channel Mapping)
•
Channels 20 through 24 on the local Campus-Flex RS Interface Card
map to the same channels on the remote card over Data Port 2 to transfer

of channels and lets you cross-map any port. For example, you can map local
channels and ports to remote channels and ports in any order, as long as the
total number of channels does not exceed 24.

Timeslot Assignment (Channel Mapping)
The following illustration shows an example of cross mapping ports:
•
Channels 1 through 12 on the local DSX-1 port and channels 13 through
19 on the local Data Port 1 all map to channels 1 through 19 on the
remote DSX-1 port.
•
Channels 20 through 24 on the local Data Port 2 map straight to channels
20 through 24 on the remote Data Port 2.
For the following two examples, the Insert Framing option
must be turned on for both the local and remote units.
See“Inserting Framing” on page 4-6 for configuring with the
LCD and “Inserting Framing” on page 5-23 for configuring
with an ASCII terminal.

Timeslot Assignment (Channel Mapping)
The previous illustration is similar to the mapping if the remote unit is not a
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card (for example, a DSX-1 or V.35 unit). In that
case, all three ports on a Campus-Flex RS Interface Card map to a single
remote port.

To use the LCD menus to assign timeslots, see page 3-3.
•
To use an ASCII terminal to assign timeslots, see page 5-12.
DATA PORT FAILURE
If both the DSX-1 and one or more of the data ports are mapped to HDSL
timeslots, do not turn off the DSX-1 input while power is applied to the
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card. Doing so causes the data port(s) to fail.
You can fix this by reinstalling the card as follows:
1
Turn off the power to the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card by:
•
pressing the Power button on the desktop unit, and
•
removing the line unit mated to the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card
2
Remove the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card from the desktop unit or
Campus-Star chassis.
3
Reinstall the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card into the desktop unit or
Campus-Star chassis.
4
Turn on the power.

CLOCK AND TIMING
SOURCE OPTIONS
This chapter discusses the issues that determine the correct settings for the
clock and timing source options of the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card.
DSX-1 TIMING
If the DSX-1 port on a unit is enabled, the Primary Timing Source must be set
to DSX-1. This means that if the DSX-1 port is enabled on both the local and
remote ports, both units must have the Primary Timing Source set to DSX-1.
The DSX-1 ports support independent transmit and receive timing.
Therefore, if only the DSX-1 ports are used on both units (that is, the Data
ports are disabled), the host devices connected to the DSX-1 ports may both
be configured as timing sources. This configuration will work only if the host
equipment also supports independent transmit and receive timing. If the
devices do not support independent timing, one of them must be configured
as the circuit timing source and the other one must be configured for receive
(interface) timing.
If the DSX-1 port and either Data port on a unit are enabled,
the circuit must have only one timing source. That is, only
one of the host devices connected to the DSX-1 ports may be
configured as the circuit timing source; the other DSX-1
device must be configured for receive (interface) timing.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual

Clock and Timing Source Options
DATA PORT TIMING
The following sections provide guidance for configuring the timing options
if only the Data ports are used and the DSX-1 ports on both the local and
remote units are disabled.
For normal operation, communications networks normally require that
communicating elements be separated into data circuit-terminating
equipment (DCE) and data terminal equipment (DTE). DCEs normally
provide timing information for the DTEs.
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card can operate in either the standard timing
configuration or port timing configuration. In the standard timing
configuration, both the local and remote Campus-Flex RS Interface Cards are
connected to DTE hosts. In the port timing configuration, one of the
Campus-Flex RS Interface Cards (either the local or the remote) is connected
to a DTE host and the other is connected to a DCE host.
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card is currently not capable of operating in
a configuration where both hosts are DCE, and both Campus-Flex RS
Interface Card are configured for port timing.
Standard Timing Configuration
In the standard timing configuration, the internal oscillator of one unit
functions as a frequency reference for all clocks in the system. Since the
Campus-Flex RS Interface Cards are designed as DCE, they are expected to
provide both Serial Clock Transmit (SCT) and Serial Clock Receive (SCR)
output signals.
9-2
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
Clock and Timing Source Options
Within a Campus system, set the Timing Source option for one of the
Campus-Flex RS Interface Cards to Internal timing. Connect all other
Campus-Flex RS Interface Cards to HDSL timing, as shown in the following
figure.

** Set to HDSL Timing
The connected host devices then use the SCT and SCR timing signals in order
to derive transmit and receive timing for the Send Data (SD) and Receive
Data (RD) signals.
The Terminal Timing (TT) signal shown in the figure compensates for clock
and data delays associated with long cables, or delays that may be inherent to
the connected host equipment. Although it is highly recommended, the TT
signal is optional in this timing configuration. If the TT signal is used, the host
equipment must derive the TT signal from the SCT signal.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
9-3
Clock and Timing Source Options
Port Timing Configuration
If one of the Campus-Flex RS Interface Cards needs to accept primary timing
from the connected host equipment, set its Timing Source option to Port
Timing. Set the Timing Source option for any connected Campus units to
HDSL timing.
The TT input of the “port-timed” unit is used as a frequency reference for all
clocks in the system, as shown in the following figure. A phase lock loop
(PLL) keeps the Campus system in phase with the host timing.
In this configuration, the Transmit Clock option becomes irrelevant and the
TT input of the “port-timed” unit serves a different purpose than in the figure
on page 9-3. The TT input is used as a means of establishing the primary
timing reference for both the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card and the HDSL
link. Because the TT input is used to synchronize all clocks, excessive jitter
and poor frequency stability at the TT input can cause degraded link
performance.

The timing configuration shown in the previous figure reverses the data
circuit-terminating equipment (DCE) / data terminal equipment (DTE) roles
on one of the Campus-Flex RS Interface Cards. This forces the card to act as
DTE instead of DCE. With this timing configuration, and with a DTE/DCE
“cross-over” cable, you could connect one of the Campus-Flex RS Interface
Cards to a standard DCE host, as shown in the following figure.

Port Timing
The Serial Clock Transmit (SCT) signal on the Campus-Flex RS Interface
Card cannot be configured as an input. In a standard DCE host, the SCT
signal is also an output. This creates the following two critical implications
for the configuration shown above:
•
The Campus-Flex RS Interface Card accepts only one clock input (TT).
This clock is assumed to provide a timing reference for both the transmit
and receive data paths. The card uses the TT input to clock-in the Send
Data (SD) input, and to clock-out the Receive Data (RD) output. For
proper operation, the DCE host must generate SCT and Serial Clock
Receive (SCR) from the same primary timing source. SCT and SCR can
have a constant phase delay relative to each other, but they must be
generated from the same timing source.
•
Because the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card synchronizes the RD output
to the SCR clock output pin, the DCE host must be configured to sample
the SD input based upon the TT clock input.
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
9-5
Clock and Timing Source Options
Transmit Clock Option
Set the Transmit Clock option only if the Timing Source is set to either
Internal or HDSL. When the Timing Source option is set to Port timing, the
Transmit Clock option does not need to be set because TT is equivalent to
SCT.
The Transmit Clock option can be set to either External or Internal. It
determines how the SD signal is sampled. If the Transmit Clock option is set
to External, the SD is sampled based upon the clock transitions on the TT
input. If the Transmit Clock option is set to Internal, the SD is sampled based
upon the clock transitions on the SCT output.
One of the functions of the TT signal is to compensate for potential problems
with clock and data delays associated with long cables, or delays that may be
inherent to the connected host equipment. Potential delay problems exist
when the SD signal arriving at the input of the Campus-Flex RS Interface
Card experiences phase delays relative to the SCT clock provided at the
output of the card (shown in the following figure).
These delays occur in either of the following two situations:
•
when the data cable causes a significant delay on the SCT and SD signals
•
when the host equipment delays the transmission of the SD signal
relative to the transitions on the received SCT signal, causing the SCT
and SD signals to lose synchronization

or Line Unit
Host Equipment

To circumvent this potential problem, set the Transmit Clock
option on the Campus-Flex RS Interface Card to External.
Thus the transmit clock is taken from the TT input instead of
the SCT output. With this approach, the TT and SD signals
experience the same delay as they propagate through the
data cable, and they remain synchronized to each other.
9-6
Campus-Flex RS Interface Card User Manual
Clock and Timing Source Options
When the Timing Source is set to either Internal or HDSL, the Campus-Flex
RS Interface Card uses the SCT signal to establish the frequency of the
transmit data path. The SCT signal does not necessarily indicate exactly
where the transitions on SD should occur. SD typically has a constant phase
delay from SCT.
The TT signal, on the other hand, indicates the exact location of the binary
transitions on SD. Any phase delay from the SCT output to the TT input must
be constant. Furthermore, the TT signal cannot be from a different frequency
source than SCT and it should not insert any jitter.
