Release Notes for *.dc6 code files - V1.13
1
Overview
This is a maintenance release which corrects an issue in the multi-clock
domain code file ss7mcd.dc6. All other variants of the code file are identical
in functionality to the previous version.
This release is fully backwards compatible with the previous release.
1.1
Applicability
This release is necessary for any users that have multiple clocking domains
and use the ss7mcd.dc6 code file. The release is suitable for all users.
2
Changes
2.1
ss7mcd.dc6 Code File
This release corrects an issue within the ss7mcd.dc6 code file which was
introduced at V1.12 and prevented it from correctly supporting multiple clock
domains.

Dialogic® DSI SS7MD Network Interface Boards Release Notes
Release Notes for *.dc6 code files - V1.12
1
Overview
This is a maintenance release which corrects potential issues which could
cause the board, operating in MTP2 or AAL5 monitoring modes, to lock up in
situations where there are errors on the E1/T1 interface.
This release also includes a correction to operation of MTP2 where an
alignment cycle terminates with Remote Processor Outage.
This is the first full release since V1.10 and is fully backwards compatible with
that release.
1.1
Applicability
This release is necessary for users operating in MTP2 or AAL5 monitoring
modes, and is suitable for all users.
1.2
Resolved Customer Issues
Updates to resolve the following customer issues are included in this release:
IPY00092738.
2
Changes
2.1
LIU errors cause board failure (IPY00092738)
Under certain circumstances, when operating in MTP2 monitoring mode,
reception of over-length frames could cause the board to lock-up. Also when
operating in AAL5 monitoring mode, reception of CRC errors could cause the
board to lock-up. Typically this behavior would have been triggered as a
result of errors or frame slips on the E1/T1 interface. This release corrects
both issues.
2.2
MTP Initial Alignment terminated by RPO
When in the aligned ready state, on receipt of Remote Processor Outage the
link previously transitioned to the In Service state instead of entering the
Processor Outage state. This release corrects the issue.

Release Notes for *.dc6 code files - V1.10
Release Notes for *.dc6 code files - V1.10
1
Overview
This is the first full release of the code file for the Dialogic® DSI SS7MDL4
Network Interface Board since V1.08. It contains an important correction to
prevent the board spontaneously shutting down and new functionality to
provide additional control over LIU clock recovery.
The release is fully backwards compatible with the previous release.
1.1
Applicability
All users are advised to upgrade to this release as it includes enhancements
to prevent occasional board shutdown issues.
To benefit from the enhancements contained within, the code file must be
used in conjunction with either the Dialogic® DSI SS7 Development Package
for Linux 6.2.0 (or later) or the Dialogic® DSI SS7 Development Package for
Solaris 5.0.2 (or later).
1.2
Resolved Customer Issues
Updates to resolve the following customer issues are included in this release:
IPY00091590.
2
New Functionality
2.1
LIU Clock Recovery
This release provides support to optionally exclude individual LIUs from being
considered for clock recovery.
When using s7_mgt, an LIU can be excluded as a source of clock recovery by
setting bit 0 in the <options> parameter in the LIU_CONFIG command.
When using message-based configuration set bit 0 in the ‘clk_opt’ field of the
LIU_MSG_CONFIG message. The ‘clk_opt’ field is a 2 octet parameter
commencing at offset 19.
3
Other Changes
3.1
Board Shutdown (IPY00091590)
Under certain circumstances, the board could spontaneously shutdown,
potentially causing operating system ‘panic’ or ‘confusion’. This code file when
used in conjunction with drivers from the Development Packages listed above
corrects this issue.

Dialogic® DSI SS7MD Network Interface Boards Release Notes
Release Notes for *.dc6 code files - V1.08
1
Overview
This is the first full release of the code file for the Dialogic® DSI SS7MDL4
Network Interface Board since V1.04. It adds support for termination of ATM
Q.SAAL links in accordance with ITU-T Q.2140 and Q.2110, running over T1
or E1 interfaces.
The release also adds precision message time stamping to the monitor mode
of operation ensuring messages received across all links (including multiple
boards) are time stamped and synchronized to the main host clock.
In addition to the new features this release includes a number of
enhancements to the performance to increase the maximum message
throughput of the board.
The release is fully backwards compatible with the previous release.
1.1
Applicability
This code file is for use on the SS7MD Network Interface Board and must be
used in conjunction with either the Dialogic® DSI SS7 Development Package
for Linux V6.03 (or later) or the Dialogic® DSI SS7 Development Package for
Solaris V4.03 (or later).
The ATM functionality introduced by this release is documented in full in the
updated Dialogic® DSI SS7MD Network Interface Boards Programmer's
Manual, Issue 3.
2
New Functionality
2.1
ATM Q.SAAL Operation
This release provides support for the termination of ATM Q.SAAL links in
accordance with ITU-T Q.2140 and Q.2110, running over T1 or E1 interfaces.
The Q.SAAL functionality runs in conjunction with the normal Dialogic® DSI
MTP3 Layer host binary and from an application perspective can be
interchanged with LSL and HSL deployments. Operation in ATM mode
requires the addition of cell stream configuration to the config.txt file and
minor syntax changes in the MTP_LINK command.
Full details of the operation of ATM Q.SAAL links are provided in the Dialogic®
DSI SS7MD Network Interface Boards Programmer’s Manual, Issue 3.
2.2
Precision Time Stamping for Monitored Links
This release supports precision time stamping of all received messages when
operating in monitoring mode. The timestamp in presented as ‘seconds’ and
‘fractional seconds’ using the notion of host time taken from the host
machine.
5
Release Notes for *.dc6 code files - V1.08
Full details of the operation of time stamping are provided in the Dialogic®
DSI SS7MD Network Interface Boards Programmer’s Manual, Issue 3.
2.3
Enhanced Message Throughput Performance
This release includes performance optimizations which have increased the
message throughput to 30,000 MSU/s1 for both Linux and Solaris Operating
Systems.
2.4
Thermal Protection
This release provides support for the on-board thermal sensor which guards
against hardware failure due to inadequate cooling from the host chassis. If
the board gets too hot then it will be automatically shutdown.
Full details of the operation of the thermal sensor are provided in the
Dialogic® DSI SS7MD Network Interface Boards Programmer’s Manual, Issue
3.

Network Interface Board.
1.1
Applicability
This code file is for use on the SS7MD Network Interface Board and must be
used in conjunction with either the Dialogic® DSI SS7 Development Package
for Linux V6.01 (or later) or the Dialogic® DSI SS7 Development Package for
Solaris V4.01 (or later). Previous versions of the Development Package and
code file used during the field trial should be discarded.

New Functionality
2.1
Support for SS7MD Board
This release provides support for the Dialogic® DSI SS7MD Network Interface
Board. There are two code files available for the SS7MD board.
The ss7.dc6 code file should be used for SS7MD boards running the LSL, HSL
or ATM run modes.
The ima.dc6 code file should be used for SS7MD boards running the IMA run
mode.

Advisory
3.1
Board Enumeration
For applications which require consistency between physical and logical board
ids customers are advised to use Geographic Addressing Board Serial Number
Address mode as described in section 8.7.1 of the Dialogic® DSI SS7MD
Network Interface Boards Programmer’s Manual.
3.2
Received Message Timestamping
This release of the SS7MD code file does not support Received Message
Timestamping as described in section 4.9 of the Dialogic® DSI SS7MD
Network Interface Boards Programmer’s Manual. This functionality will be
included in a later release of the code file.
If timestamping is enabled the API_MSG_RX_INDT message ‘seconds’ and
‘fraction_seconds’ parameters are undefined.
