CHAPTER 1: OVERVIEW
Device Management
You can use the CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch Local
Management Application (LMA) or Transcend® Enterprise Manager (or
other SNMP-based network management application) to manage your
CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch.
The CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch LMA is a
character-oriented, menu-driven user interface for performing
system-level administration. You operate this console from a terminal (or
terminal emulation software) or through a remote terminal protocol, such
as Telnet or Remote Login.
For more complete network management, use an external SNMP-based
application such as Transcend Enterprise Manager. Transcend provides
logical views and control for your network. In addition, it extends the
SNMP capabilities of the ATM Enterprise Switch with a common user
interface and easy-to-use administrative features that optimize network
configuration, oversight, and troubleshooting.
Traffic Management
Traffic management in the CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch is
done at two levels:
Preventing congestion
Handling congestion
Mechanisms for Preventing Congestion
The following flow control mechanisms for automatic management in
the CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch Fabric Module work to
prevent cell and frame loss under intense loads:
Explicit Forward Congestion Indication (EFCI) Marking
Call Admission Control
Flow Control
CLP bit tagging support
Priorities
Scheduling
CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch Characteristics
29
Mechanisms for Handling Congestion
The following mechanisms are used to manage congestion in the
CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch Fabric Module:
ATM Networks
Back Pressure
Partial Packet Drop (PPD) (Hardware ready)
Early Packet Drop (EPD) (Hardware ready)
Call Admission
CLP-based Cell Discard.
The CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch supports the following
types of ATM networks:
Classical IP (CLIP) ATM
The CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch is transparent to CLIP and
allows you to use CLIP over the ATM network. For a view of the
CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch when CLIP is used over ATM
within a network, see Chapter 3, ATM Network Basics in the Operations
Guide.
Virtual Networks
The CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch handles virtual networks
across the enterprise using ATM and LAN Emulation (LANE). Segments in
a virtual network can incorporate legacy LANs and ATM devices using
LANE, allowing you to organize network users into logical groups,
regardless of their physical location. Using this feature, you can set up
workgroups comprised of members from various departments or business
units around the enterprise, and centralize servers into server farms for
better administration. For more information about virtual networks, see

a hierarchical, top-down fashion. Figure 3 shows the menu structure.
Each command menu contains a numbered list of menu items. Each
menu item has a three-letter mnemonic identifier and a short description
of the item. There are two kinds of menu items: commands that display
another, lower-level, command menu (submenu) and commands that
perform a specific administrative task. The submenu command is
distinguished by the arrow (->) on the right.
The Main Menu is at the top of the hierarchy. Through it, you access the
submenus for the main topics of management such as Platform
Configuration, LAN Emulation, and Connections. Figure 3 shows the
Main Menu and some of its successive submenus.

To select a menu option, you enter its number or its mnemonic identifier
at the prompt symbol (>) that is displayed below the menu item list. You
need to enter the first unique characters of the mnemonic identifier.
The hierarchical path from the Main Menu down to the currently
displayed submenu option is displayed in front of the angle bracket
prompt. This convention helps you orient yourself in the menu hierarchy.
Example — Changing
a Password
To illustrate how to work with the menu system, the example in this
section changes the read-access password. This example is shown in
Figure 3. The following command description guides you through the
execution of the command. It specifies the menu sequence to enter, the
parameters to enter and their format, the command results, and any
system messages. A similar command description format is provided for
each command in this manual.
Entering the Menu Sequence
First, enter the menu sequence in the order shown in section A of the
“Command Description” on page 18 in the About This Guide section. In
this example, you enter the menu item numbers, but you can enter the
three-letter mnemonic code instead.
1 At the Main Menu prompt, enter 1.
The Platform Configuration Menu is displayed (the second screen in
Figure 3), followed by the path (1) SYS: and the (>) prompt.
2 At the Platform Configuration Menu prompt, enter 1.
The Switch Setup Menu submenu is displayed (the third screen in
Figure 3), followed by the path (1)SYS\(1)SET and the (>) prompt.
3 At the Switch Setup Menu prompt, enter 1.
46
CHAPTER 4: USING THE LOCAL MANAGEMENT APPLICATION
The Password Setup Menu is displayed as follows, followed by the path
(1)SYS\(1)SET\(1)PAS and the (>) prompt. These menu items are all
configuration commands; none of them have arrows to the right.

section explains which parameters to enter and the format to use.
5 At the Enter the new read password: prompt, enter the new
password in a format of up to eight alphanumeric characters.
6 At the Enter the new read password again: prompt, enter the new
password again exactly as before.
Command Results
After the command executes successfully, a system message is displayed:
The password has been changed.
The command results and systems messages are shown in section D in
“Command Description” on page 18 in the About This Guide section.
Direct Access to
Submenus
You can display a submenu or execute a command directly without
having to step down through the hierarchy as in the previous example. At
the Main Menu prompt, type the required sequence of menu item
numbers or menu item mnemonic followed by the command parameters
all on one line, separated by spacebar strokes. For example, to display the
password prompt directly from the Main Menu, just enter 1 1 1 1 at the
Main Menu prompt.
The LMA Menu System
Entering Multiple
Parameters
47
When a command has more than one parameter, you can enter them all
on the same command line with blanks in between or you can enter
some or all of them on separate command lines. If you do not enter them
all on one line, you are repeatedly prompted for the remaining
parameters.
If you enter an illegal character or string (such as an out-of-range
parameter), the LMA display responds with an error message which is
indicated by a three-asterisk (***) prefix.

ATM addresses were received from end stations or edge devices attached
to the port and registered using ILMI in the MIB address table. (For more
information, see “UNI Address Registration” on page 52 in the
Operations Guide.)
Addresses defined through LMA are not displayed.
For easy reference, each ATM address registered at a port is assigned a
member ID. The member ID is made up of the port number followed by a
two-digit number of the form 0n, where 0 corresponds to the first ATM
address registered. For example, the member ID for the first ATM address
registered at port 3.1.3 is 31301.
The member ID is useful for displaying information about calls that are
associated with the ATM address. For example, the switched virtual
channels (SVC) are established to the LEC, whose ATM address is
registered at the port. You can use the member ID to get information for
the specific port attached to that ATM address.

Display Call Routing
You can display call routing to an ATM address.
For information about routing, see “Routing — Internal Links” on page
109 in the Operations Guide.
Display Call Routed
to ATM Address
Display information for a call routed through a port to a specified ATM
address registered at the port. Use this command, for example, to get
information about a call routed through a specific port of the
CoreBuilder® 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch to the ATM address of a
specific LEC in an edge device attached to another port of the
CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch.
To specify the ATM address at a port: for an SVC, specify the member
number; for a PVC, specify the port number (slot.group.port).
Calls routed to an ATM address are differentiated by their Call number.
The Call number is allocated by the CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise
Switch during the time the call is initiated and uniquely identifies the call
in the CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch.
More than one call can be routed to a single ATM address at one time.
For example, when a bridged Ethernet LAN is attached to a single LEC, all
calls to the stations on the LAN are transmitted to that LEC’s ATM
address.
If you do not know the Call number of the call whose information you
want to display, enter 0 for the Call number and a list of calls routed to
the ATM address are displayed together with their Call IDs. You can read
the desired Call number from this list according to the VPI/VCI number,
for example.

For information about signaling timers, see “Signaling Timers” on page
96 in the Operations Guide.
Display Protocol
Timer Resolution
Display the current timer resolution in milliseconds for the signaling
protocol timers.
Each signaling protocol comes with a set of timers, one for each type of
message in the protocol. These timers determine when an expected
response to a message is overdue. They are set to the expected response
time when the message is sent and decrement towards zero. If they reach
zero before the response is received the system is notified that the
response is overdue.
All the timers in the Q93B and QSAAL protocol are based on a common
timer tick-length called the timer resolution. When the timer resolution is
changed, all of the signaling timers are affected.
The CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch is shipped with a default
timer resolution of 500 msec (0.5 secs). To change the value of an
individual timer, change the timer resolution proportionally. For example,
if you want to lower the “no response” timer from 50 secs to 25 secs,
reduce the timer resolution from 500 msec to 250 msec. Then the “no
response” timer, together with all the other timers, are reduced by one
half. For more information, see “Timer Resolution” on page 98 in the
Operations Guide.

SONET loss of signal state (LOS)
Loss of signal. The loss of signal defect is declared when no
transitions are detected on the incoming signal (before
descrambling). The LOS defect is detected upon observing 2.3
to 100 microseconds of no transitions. The defect is cleared
after a 125 microsecond interval (one frame) during which no
LOS defect is detected.
SONET loss of frame state (LOF)
Loss of frame. A loss of frame defect is declared when an
OOF/SEF defect persists for a period of 3 milliseconds. The
LOF defect is terminated when the incoming signal remains
continuously in-frame for a period of 1 ms to 3 ms.
SONET loss of pointer state (LOP)
Loss of pointer. A loss of pointer defect is declared when
either a valid pointer is not detected in eight consecutive
frames, or when eight consecutive frames are detected with
the New Data Flag (NDF) set to “1001” without a valid
concatenation indicator. A LOP defect is terminated when
either a valid pointer with a normal NDF set to “0110”, or a
valid concatenation indicator is detected for three contiguous
frames.
SONET out of cell delineation state (OCD)
SONET path alarm indication signal state (Path AIS)
SONET line alarm indication signal state (Line AIS)
The AIS is an all-ONES characteristic or adapted information
signal. It is generated to replace the normal traffic signal
when it contains a defect condition in order to prevent
consequential downstream failures being declared or alarms
being raised.
AIS can also be identified as:
- AIS-L (Line Alarm Indication Signal)
- SP-AIS (STS Path Alarm Indication Signal)
- VP-AIS (VT Path Alarm Indication Signal)
SONET line remote defect indication state (Line RDI) A signal returned to the transmitting Terminating Equipment
SONET path remote defect indication state (Path RDI) upon detecting a Loss of Signal, Loss of Frame, or AIS defect.
RDI was previously known as FERF.
RDI can also be identified as:
- RDI-L (Line Remote Defect Indication)
- RDI-P (STS Path Remote Defect Indication)
- RDI-V (VT Path Remote Defect Indication)

Table 30 MPOA Client Configuration Parameters
Variable
Name
Description
MPC-p1
shortcut-setup frame time
If an MPC forwards at least MPC-p2 frames to the same target
within any period MPC-p1 via the default forwarding path, it should
initiate the procedure to establish a shortcut. The MPC-p1 and
MPC-p2 parameters specify a default mechanism for automatically
detecting flows in the absence of other information. Other
mechanisms (e.g. RSVP) may be used in specific cases to override
this default.
(Minimum = 1 sec., default = 1 sec., maximum = 60 sec.)
MPC-p2
shortcut-setup frame count
See MPC-p1.
(Minimum = 1 sec., default = 10 sec., maximum = 65535 sec.)
MPC-p3
flow detection protocols
A set of protocols on which to perform flow detection.
Default = ().
MPC-p4
MPC initial retry time
Initial retry time used by the MPOA retry mechanism.
(Minimum = 1 sec., default = 5sec., maximum = 300 sec.)
MPC-p5
MPC retry time maximum
Maximum retry time used by the MPOA retry mechanism.
(Minimum = 10 sec., default = 40 sec., maximum = 300 sec.)
MPC-p6
hold down time
Minimum time to wait before reinitiating a failed resolution
attempt. This is usually set to a value greater than MPC-p5.
(Minimum = 30 sec., default = MPC-p%*4, maximum = 120 sec.)

Policy
You can configure the LECS search policy.
Display the search policy of the resident LECS, according to which a LES
address is assigned to a LEC that requests to join an ELAN.
When a LEC applies to the LECS to join an ELAN, it can supply the
following information to assist the LECS:
The ATM address of the LES with which it wants to communicate over
an ELAN
The MAC address of the LES with which it wants to communicate over
an ELAN
The name of the ELAN it wants to join
Accordingly, there are three possible search policies that the LECS can
execute:
1 The LECS searches for an ELAN whose LES has the required ATM address.
2 The LECS searches for an ELAN that contains the LES with the required
MAC address.
3 The LECS searches for an ELAN with the required name.
These three policies are tried by the LECS in order. If one does not
succeed, the next is tried.

LECS ELAN Database Operations
Add ELAN
259
Add an ELAN to the LECS database, that is, add a new LES. Specify the
ELAN name and LES ATM address.
You can use any legal ELAN name. The names of the ELANs on a
particular switch all have the form elan_<XXXX>_<n> where <XXXX>
is a number unique to the switch and <n> is the sequential number of
the ELAN between 0 and 15. This is the form to use for ELANs that you
enter in this section.
If the requested LES ATM address already exists in the LECS database, this
command defines a new alias ELAN with the same LAN type and frame
size. If the LES ATM address does not match any ATM address in the LECS
database, a new ELAN is created with the LAN type and max frame size
set to the default values (Ethernet, 1516).
You can define up to 380 ELANs in the LECS database of a
CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch. Each CoreBuilder 9000 ATM
Enterprise Switch LECS database has 16 default ELAN names and default
ATM addresses corresponding to the LESs in the same switch.

CHAPTER 9: MANAGING LAN EMULATION
Configure Segment
ID
Configure a local segment ID for a token ring ELAN in the LECS database.
Specify the ELAN name.
Each token ring segment in a token ring network that uses source routing
must be assigned a unique segment ID by the network administrator. You
assign the segment ID to the ATM ELAN, which simulates the token ring,
by this command. Then, when a LEC joins the ELAN, it gets the segment
ID from the LECS. Alternatively, instead of using this command, you can
configure the segment ID manually in each individual LEC in the ELAN.
You cannot assign a segment ID to a non-token ring ELAN.

Display LE_ARP
Response Policy for
Route Descriptor
Display the additional policy for handling LE_ARP requests for a specified
ELAN when the LAN destination is a route descriptor (Token Ring ELAN).
This policy is used in conjunction with the LE_ARP response policy. (For
more information, see “Display LE_ARP Response Policy” on page 291.)
The policy is applicable only when the “Respond” option is selected in
that policy. (See Table 43.)
When the Respond policy is selected, the address table of the LES in the
CoreBuilder 9000 ATM Enterprise Switch is searched for the LAN
destination. If the LAN destination is not found and is a Route Descriptor,
this policy gives the you the option of rejecting the LE_ARP request. You
can select between the options:
Reject the LE_ARP request
Forward the LE_ARP request to all LECs in accordance with the LE_ARP
response policy
All route descriptors are required by the LANE specification to be
registered at the LES. (No proxy LECs are allowed for route descriptors.)
This command essentially handles those cases for which the LAN
destination exists but was not registered at the LES – in contradiction to
the LANE specification.

peer group to which it belongs. For more information, see “Organizing a
Network Hierarchy” on page 183 in the Operations Guide. A change to
the node level takes place after the next reboot.
It is important not to split ELANs between groups when constructing the
network hierarchy.
There are several PNNI operations in the LMA that can only be performed
when the node administrative status is set to DOWN, and that take effect
immediately after the status is reset to UP. These include updating the
ATM address, updating the PNNI node id and updating the node level.For

GLOSSARY
ASIC
Application Specific Integrated Circuit, a chip designed for a particular
application. ASICs are built by connecting existing circuit building blocks
in new ways. Because the building blocks already exist in a library, it is
much easier to produce a new ASIC than to design a new chip from
scratch.
ATM
Asynchronous Transfer Mode. A transfer method used for LAN and
WAN. ATM carries voice, video and data at speeds up to 2.2 Gbps and
can integrate geographically distant disparate networks. Also called cell
relay.
ATM Interface

OBTAINING WARRANTY
SERVICE
Customer must contact a 3Com Corporate Service Center or an Authorized 3Com Service Center within the
applicable warranty period to obtain warranty service authorization. Dated proof of purchase from 3Com or
its authorized reseller may be required. Products returned to 3Com's Corporate Service Center must be
pre-authorized by 3Com with a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number marked on the outside of the
package, and sent prepaid and packaged appropriately for safe shipment, and it is recommended that they
be insured or sent by a method that provides for tracking of the package. The repaired or replaced item will
be shipped to Customer, at 3Com's expense, not later than thirty (30) days after 3Com receives the defective
product.
Dead- or Defective-on-Arrival. In the event a product completely fails to function or exhibits a defect in
materials or workmanship within the first forty-eight (48) hours of installation but no later than thirty (30)
days after the date of purchase, and this is verified by 3Com, it will be considered dead- or
defective-on-arrival (DOA) and a replacement shall be provided by advance replacement. The replacement
product will normally be shipped not later than three (3) business days after 3Com’s verification of the DOA
product, but may be delayed due to export or import procedures. When an advance replacement is provided
and Customer fails to return the original product to 3Com within fifteen (15) days after shipment of the
replacement, 3Com will charge Customer for the replacement product, at list price.
3Com shall not be responsible for any software, firmware, information, or memory data of Customer
contained in, stored on, or integrated with any products returned to 3Com for repair, whether under
warranty or not.
