WPIM-E1 LOCAL MANAGEMENT GUIDE
THE WAN PHYSICAL CONFIGURATION SCREEN
2.1.3
The WPIM Timeslot Configuration Table
The WPIM Timeslot Configuration Table allows the user to configure the
way in which the Cabletron WAN module uses the E-1 line. The
configuration table consists of 32 Timeslots. Only 31 of the Timeslots are
available for use because the first Timeslot is used by the device to
transmit framing data. N/A (Not Available) always appears in Timeslot
#1. You must assign each of the remaining 31 Timeslots an Interface
number (for example, 002 for an active Interface number or 000 if the
Timeslot is not used). When you lease an entire E-1 line, you can use all
31 Timeslots (the full E-1 bandwidth). If you lease only a fraction of the
E-1, the service provider tells you which Timeslots to use.
The WPIM-E1 always uses the first Timeslot (Timeslot #1) to
transmit framing data. A full E-1 line with 32 Timeslots has
31 customer-usable Timeslots.
NOTE
You can utilize Timeslots any way you choose. The WPIM-E1 supports
Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) allowing channelization of circuits
(Timeslots) within the public network. For example, if your BRIM-W6
has access to a full E-1 (31 customer-usable Timeslots), and you want to
communicate with two other sites, your configuration might look like
Figure 2-2.

CHAPTER 2: LOCAL MANAGEMENT
Figure 2-3 shows a sample configuration for three sites. Of the 32
Timeslots, Site #1 uses the first Timeslot for transmitting framing data, 23
Timeslots to communicate with Site #2 and the remaining 8 Timeslots to
communicate with Site #3. This configuration varies tremendously
depending on how the service provider maps out the E-1 Timeslots. Your
service provider will tell you which Timeslots are active and where they
go in the cloud.

available or required.
WPIM-E1 LOCAL MANAGEMENT GUIDE
THE WAN INTERFACE CONFIGURATION SCREEN
If NO LMI is selected, the following fields are displayed:
DLCI Address:
This field can be set to values from 0-1023. The
values 0-15 and 1008-1022 are reserved DLCI
addresses.
Circuit State:
Toggles between Active, Inactive and Invalid.
PT#
Displays the application ports (bridge ports) available from the host
platform to the WAN. If the active protocol is PPP, Local Management
assigns only one application port per interface number (IF#). If the active
protocol is Frame Relay, Local Management assigns the available WAN
bridge ports from the host platform, one per DLCI.
You can assign WAN application ports to the 31 interfaces for the PPP
configuration that suits your needs. In a Frame Relay configuration, you
can assign all WAN application ports to one interface. In this example, the
remaining 30 interfaces would not have WAN application ports available.
The quantity of application ports for a Frame Relay network is
determined by the quantity of DLCIs (Data Link Connection Identifiers)
assigned to that Interface. This is determined either manually or by the
LMP (Link Management Protocol).
IF#
Displays the Interface that is associated with the application port.
LID
Displays the Link Identifier. If the active protocol is Frame Relay, the
Data Link Connection Identifier is displayed. If the active protocol for
this interface is PPP, then PPP appears in this field.
STATE
Displays the status of the application port. If the active protocol is Frame
Relay, this field displays the status as Active, Inactive, or Disabled (for No
LMI). If the active protocol is PPP, this field displays UP (for active) or
DOWN (for inactive).

allowing 64 Kbps clear data per channel.This encoding method
is not supported by some Telcos.
BRI
Basic Rate Interface, minimum rate ISDN subscriber interface,
provides 2 B + 1 D channels (two 64 Kbps “B” (Bearer) channels and one 16 Kbps “D” (Data) signaling channel for a total
of 144 Kbps).
BRIM
Cabletron Systems Bridge Router Interface Module. Expands
the physical connectivity of a host device.
CRC
Cyclic Redundancy Check, an algorithm or process used to
identify corrupted packets in the transmission link.
CSU
Channel Service Unit, a device that terminates the local
loop/digital channel on a customer’s (DSU) premises. The
CSU connects to a DSX-1 interface on the CPE.

that connects the communications circuit with the end device
(see DTE).
Data (D)
Channel
A 16 Kbps channel used with BRI and PRI services for
signaling and control.
D4
D4 Framing, a popular framing format in T-1. Uses 12 T-1
Frames to identify both the channel and the signaling bit.
DLCI
Data Link Connection Identifier, a unique virtual circuit identifier used in Frame Relay. Identifies a given frame as being
from a particular logical link. The DLCI has only local significance.
DSU
Digital Service Unit, converts RS-232 or other terminal
interfaces to DSX-1 (T-1) interface.
DS-0
Digital Signal, level 0, a standard 64,000 bit/second channel.
