Port4 Ext Alarm: Disable
Nxt Disable EnableLow EnableHigh
This configuration option only appears when MUX Mode is configured for TDM/MSD.
Port 4 External Alarm Monitor. Determines if Port 4 can be used to transmit user data. When enabled, this configuration
option prevents Port 4 of the modem from being used to transmit user data. Instead, inputs on Pins 18 (external
Alarm B) and 21 (External Alarm A) on Port 4 are used to monitor an external device for alarms (such as a power supply
that can generate alarm status signals that are compatible with RS-232 levels). Once this configuration option is
enabled and saved, all Port 4 configuration options become inaccessible. Also, all Port 4 rate configuration options are
automatically disabled, and the DTE RL (CT140) and DTE LL (CT 141) configuration options are automatically set to
Disabled.
Disable – Port 4 of the TDM can be used for user data.
EnableLow – Port 4 of the TDM can only be used to monitor for external alarms. Low input signals are alarms, and high
input signals are normal.
EnableHigh – Port 4 of the TDM can only be used to monitor for external alarms. High input signals are alarms, and low
input signals are normal.
Port Async Sub-Group (One for Each Port)
Async/Sync Mode: Sync
Nxt Sync Async
Asynchronous/Synchronous Mode. Determines whether the port operates in Asynchronous mode or Synchronous
mode.
NOTE: When using the TMp or Sync factory templates and MUX Mode is disabled, Port 1 is set to Sync mode.

This configuration option only appears when V.34 is enabled.
V.34 Symbol Rate. Selects the symbol (or baud) rate to be used when operating with V.34 modulation on either dial or
leased lines.
Automatic – The modem automatically determines the top symbol rate that can be supported by the current line
conditions. This is the only setting that is compliant with the V.34 specification, and should not be changed unless
unusual line conditions exist.
3429L, 3200L, 3000L, 2800L, 2743L, 2400L – Fixed symbol rate with low carrier signal.
3429H, 3200H, 3000H, 2800H, 2743H, 2400H – Fixed symbol rate with high carrier signal (100 Hz above low carrier
signal).
V.34 Precoder: Disable
Nxt Disable Enable
This configuration option only appears when V.34 is enabled.
V.34 Precoder. Determines whether the V.34 Precoder is used when operating with V.34 family modulation on either dial
or leased lines. The V.34 Precoder improves performance under certain unusual line conditions, i.e., low harmonic
distortion, single frequency interference.
Disable – Do not use the V.34 Precoder.
Enable – Use the V.34 Precoder.
Asymmetric Rate: Disabled
End Enable Disable
This configuration option only appears when V.34 is enabled.
Asymmetric Rate. Controls rate symmetry when running V.34 modulation by enabling or disabling the V.34 modulation
from using equal transmit and receive rates.
Enable – The modem operates in asymmetric rate mode (the transmit and receive rates can be different) when running
V.34 modulation. The Asymmetric Rate configuration option must be enabled in both modems.
Disable – The modem operates in symmetric rate mode (the transmit and receive rates are identical) when running V.34
modulation. Either modem can force symmetric mode by disabling the Asymmetric Rate configuration option.
NOTE: This configuration option is typically disabled when the MUX is in use, and it is enabled when the MUX is disabled.
If you are using a factory template that has the MUX enabled, and then you manually disable the MUX, you must
verify that this configuration option is set to the correct value.

Leased-Line Rate. Determines the modem’s data rate and modulation scheme for operation on leased lines. These
modulation schemes are available on 2-wire or 4-wire lease.
NOTE: Certain changes to this configuration option will cause the modem to reset.
33600, 28800(V.34), 24000(V34), 19200(V34), 16800(V34), 14400(V34), 12000(V34), 9600(V34), 7200(V34),
4800(V34), 2400(V34) – The modem operates using V.34 modulation at the data rate selected.
NOTE: Make sure that the Backup Line Check configuration option is disabled before attempting to change from V.32 to
V.34 modulation. Otherwise, the Invalid Strap message appears.
19200(V32t), 16800(V32t), 14400(V32b), 12000(V32b), 9600(V32b), 7200(V32b), 4800(V32b) – The modem operates
using V.32bis or V.32 terbo modulation at the data rate selected.
19200(TMp), 14400(TMp), 9600(TMp), 7200(TMp), 4800(TMp), 2400(TMp) – The modem operates in Trellis Multipoint
mode at the data rate selected. These modulation schemes are available on 4-wire leased lines. The 19200(TMp)
modulation does not appear on tributary modems.
NOTE: TMp control modems can accept mixed inbound rates from tributary modems. For example, one inbound link
may be configured for 14.4 kbps while another link experiencing line impairments may be configured for
9.6 kbps. The following control/tributary rate combinations are allowed: control at 19.2 kbps, tributaries at 14.4
or 9.6 kbps; control at 14.4 kbps, tributaries at 14.4 or 9.6 kbps; control at 9.6 kbps, tributaries at 9.6 or
7.2 kbps; control at 7.2 kbps, tributaries at 7.2 or 4.8 kbps; control at 4.8 kbps, tributaries at 4.8 or 2.4 kbps;
control at 2.4 kbps, tributaries at 2.4 kbps. Tributary rates will never exceed control rates. If tributary and
control rates are equal, reducing the control rate will automatically reduce the tributary rate.

Misc – Multiport
The following information is new in Table 4-6, Miscellaneous Configuration Options – Multiport Mode,
beginning on page 4-28.
SpecialSecurity: Disable
Nxt Disable RemAccsPswd CallbkDir#
This configuration option only appears when the modem is in Dial Only mode or Lease Answer Mode, and
Answer Security Mode is configured for No_Answ_Sec.
Special Security. Provides two types of security that are not as rigorous as the standard security described in Chapter 6,
Dial Access Security. Special Security is not restricted to Asynchronous or Singleport Mode.
Disable – No callback directory number or remote access password reception are required to answer a call. The
Dir#1_Callback configuration option can be used, or no callback security can be used.
RemAccsPswd – The modem uses its remote access password. A matching remote access password must be
transmitted as an 8-digit tone from the originating modem (like a VF password) before the answering modem will accept
the call. The answering modem will disconnect the call if no password is received within the entry wait timeout or the
received password does not match the remote access password.
CallbkDir# – When selected, the remote callback directory number must be transmitted as a 2-digit tone from the
originating modem (like a VF password) before the answering modem will accept the call. The answering modem will
disconnect the call after receiving the callback directory number or when the entry wait timeout expires. If the received
directory number is valid, the answering modem uses it to locate the phone number of the originating modem for
callback.
NOTE: This selection only appears when Dir#1_Callback configuration option is set to Enable.
EntryWait_Time: 20 sec
Nxt 20 sec 10 sec 40 sec 60 sec
This configuration option only appears when the Special Security configuration option is set to RemAccsPswd
or CallbkDir#.
Entry Wait Timeout. Determines how long the answering modem waits for the originating modem to enter a VF-side
password.

VF_Prompt_Type: 2nd_DialTone
Nxt 2nd_DialTone Quiet_Answer
This configuration option only appears when the Special Security configuration option is set to RemAccsPswd
or CallbkDir#.
VF Prompt Type. Determines how the answering modem requests a valid password from the originating modem for the
valid password. This configuration option is only used for VF-side password entry and Special Security.
2nd_DialTone – Once the answering modem is off-hook, it generates a dial tone to the originating modem as a prompt
for that modem’s VF-side password. (Second dial tone is represented by a W in the dial command string.)
Quiet_Answer – Once the answering modem is off-hook, it does not send an answer tone to the originating modem.
The originating modem enters its VF-side password after detecting a ring back signal followed by five seconds of
silence. For this to work correctly, the Auto Answer Ring # configuration option in the answering modem must be set to
2 rings or greater. (Quiet answer is represented by an @ in the dial command string.)

SpecialSecurity: Disable
Nxt Disable RemAccsPswd CallbkDir#
This configuration option only appears when the modem is in Dial Only mode or Lease Answer Mode, and
Answer Security Mode is configured for No_Answ_Sec.
Special Security. Provides two types of security that are not as rigorous as the standard security described in Chapter 6,
Dial Access Security. Special Security is not restricted to Asynchronous or Singleport Mode.
Disable – No callback directory number or remote access password reception are required to answer a call. The
Dir#1_Callback configuration option can be used, or no callback security can be used.
RemAccsPswd – The modem uses its remote access password. A matching remote access password must be
transmitted as an 8-digit tone from the originating modem (like a VF password) before the answering modem will accept
the call. The answering modem will disconnect the call if no password is received within the entry wait timeout or the
received password does not match the remote access password.
CallbkDir# – When selected, the remote callback directory number must be transmitted as a 2-digit tone from the
originating modem (like a VF password) before the answering modem will accept the call. The answering modem will
disconnect the call after receiving the callback directory number or when the entry wait timeout expires. If the received
directory number is valid, the answering modem uses it to locate the phone number of the originating modem for
callback.
NOTE: This selection only appears when the Dir#1_Callback configuration option is set to Enable.
The AT command is S-Register S25 = n, where n is 0 for Disable, 1 for Remote Access Password, and 2 for Callback
Directory Number.
EntryWait_Time: 20 sec
Nxt 20 sec 10 sec 40 sec 60 sec
This configuration option only appears when the Special Security configuration option is set to RemAccsPswd
or CallbkDir#.
Entry Wait Timeout. Determines how long the answering modem waits for the originating modem to enter a VF-side
password.
VF_Prompt_Type: 2nd_DialTone
Nxt 2nd_DialTone Quiet_Answer
This configuration option only appears when the Special Security configuration option is set to RemAccsPswd
or CallbkDir#.
VF Prompt Type. Determines how the answering modem requests a valid password from the originating modem for the
valid password. This configuration option is only used for VF-side password entry and Special Security.
2nd_DialTone – Once the answering modem is off-hook, it generates a dial tone to the originating modem as a prompt
for that modem’s VF-side password. (Second dial tone is represented by a W in the dial command string.)
Quiet_Answer – Once the answering modem is off-hook, it does not send an answer tone to the originating modem.
The originating modem enters its VF-side password after detecting a ringback signal followed by five seconds of silence.
For this to work correctly, the Auto Answer Ring # configuration option in the answering modem must be set to
2 rings or greater. (Quiet answer is represented by an @ in the dial command string.)

The following information is new or changed in Appendix H, Synchronous Data Compression, beginning on
page H-1.
Synchronous Data Format
A 392xPlus modem with the SDC feature supports DTE frame sizes up to 4300 bytes. This conforms to the X.25
recommendation which defines a maximum size of data packets as equal to 4096 bytes.
If the modem has the SDC Delay Min configuration option set to Rx_Clock, there is no limitation on the DTE
frame size for the DTE frames transmitted from the remote modem to the local modem, since the whole frame
need not be buffered.
The Sync DTE CRC configuration option determines whether the CRC of the DTE frame (the FCS field) is
transmitted. If the CRC type is known to be the 16-bit CRC for HDLC frames as defined by ITU-T (generator
polynomial x16 + x12 + x5 + 1), the CRC can be removed by the local modem and added to the DTE frame by the
remote modem.
SDC User Interface
Two new configuration options affect the SDC user interface:
• Sync DTE CRC
• SDC Delay Min
Data Synchronization
When the transmit clock is provided by the modem, the transmit and receive clocks are locked on the same clock
source internal to the modem. In this configuration, you can select rates on the DTE-DCE line (or clock
frequencies) in the range from 1.2 kHz to 128 kHz.

Flow Control Method
The data transmitted from the DTE is sent to the DCE at a rate determined by the transmit clock frequency. When
SDC is active, this data is then compressed in the DCE and sent to the remote DCE at the line rate less than the
the rate between the DTE and DCE (usually twice, three, or four times less). If the data sent by the DTE is not
compressible, or bad line conditions cause retransmissions between the two DCEs, then the transmitting DCE
must indicate to the transmitting DTE its temporary inability to accept supplementary data; this is flow control.
Flow control is also required in Buffer mode since the DTE rate and the line rate can be different. Three methods
are used to control the DTE flow:
• Hardware signal CTS (circuit 106/Pin 5).
• Transmit clock (circuit 114/Pin 15). If the transmit clock is clamped, then the DTE stops sending data. This
method only works when the transmit clock is provided by the modem (transmit clock source is internal to
the modem).
• Natural flow control. Some DTEs can only send a limited number of information frames without any
acknowledgement from the remote DTE. This number is the acknowledgment window size. If the DCE
buffers this number of DTE frames, it will not receive another DTE frame. This is equivalent to the
SyncFlowControl configuration option being set to None.
Tuning SDC Efficiency
SDC efficiency is dependent on the configuration parameters of the DTE and the modem.
DTE Configuration
The way DTE parameters are changed, and whether they can be changed, depends on your DTE. See the
documentation that came with your DTE.
DTE rate configuration parameter. The nominal DTE rate (the Tx/Rx clock’s frequency at the DTE/DCE
interface) can be a bottleneck. Increase the nominal DTE rate if the:
• DTE rate measurement reported by your modem is close to the nominal DTE rate.
• Line Efficiency measurement reported by your modem is substantially less than 100 percent.
• Ratio between the nominal DTE rate and the line rate is less than the Compression Ratio.
DTE acknowledgment window size configuration parameter. This is the number of information frames the
DTE will send without awaiting positive acknowledgment. Increase the DTE acknowledgment window size if
your modem reports a low DTE rate and a comparatively high Compression Ratio (and therefore a Line
Efficiency measurement substantially less than 100 percent). Set it to the maximum possible value.
DTE frame size configuration parameter. If SDC modems are used between synchronous DTEs, then the DCE
frame size (and not the DTE frame size) must take into account the line error rate. Set the DTE frame size to as
large a value as your DTE and your DTE application can handle. This reduces the significance of DTE frame
overhead, and reduces the delay (expressed in number of DTE frames) for positive acknowledgment.

Modem Configuration
There are also configuration options in the V42/MNP/Buffer branch of the 392xPlus modem which affect SDC
efficiency.
(LAPM) Max Frame Size. Except in environments where line impairments are known to be unusually high, set
this to the maximum (256).
Sync DTE CRC. If the CRC type of the DTE frame is the 16-bit CRC for HDLC frames as defined by ITU-T, set
this to CRC16.
SDC Delay Min. If clamping of the receive clock (circuit 115/Pin 17) is accepted by your DTE, then set this to
Rx_Clock.
Sync Flow Cntrl. The Tx_Clock selection is suitable for most synchronous DTEs. If your DTE interprets
transmit clock clamping or a drop in CTS as a problem (resulting in an aborted frame), set Sync Flow Cntl to
None. Selecting None should not be a problem if the entire acknowledgment window of DTE frames does not
exceed 5 kilobytes, so that it can be buffered by the modem.
