About the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch
Overview
What is the
PathBuilder S24x,
26x, and 27x
switch?
The PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch is a multi-protocol LAN/WAN
PathBuilder S200 series switch featuring a high-speed processor and coprocessor
coupled with 12 Mbytes of on-board memory (standard). Designed to address the
needs of large branch offices with higher throughput needs and regional
concentration sites, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch is available in rackmount configurations.
The PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch’s high performance capabilities are
uniquely matched to branch applications with high traffic requirements.
As a regional concentrator, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch accepts traffic
from many branch locations into a single site and transfers the traffic to other devices
at the regional or central site.
The PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch supports both Frame Relay and X.25.

Meshed Cluster
Application
Support
A unique feature of the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch is its ability to
support full meshed cluster applications. This functionality provides host site
resiliency, port count extension, and multiple LAN connectivity.
Examples of how the features of the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch function
in specific applications can be found the “Applications” section on page 1-3.
Figure 1-1 shows a PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch.

Introduction
This section briefly describes several application examples for the PathBuilder S24x,
26x, and 27x switch.
Performance
Branch Nodes
Because of its high performance capabilities, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x
switch can be employed in a variety of branch node applications. For example, the
PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch can support a mix of voice and data types,
traditional legacy (SDLC, X.25, Bisync, Async, etc.), and LAN. Because of its high
throughput, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch can be used in situations
where large file transfers, fast response time, and high numbers of users are the
norm. Figure 1-2 is an example of a typical branch node application.
Furthermore, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch is designed to meet the
needs of an expanding network. With its large RAM capacity and high-speed
processor, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch can easily adapt to a growing
network with little or no additional hardware.

Applications
Regional
Concentrator
In Figure 1-3, the public network (Frame Relay/X.25) is performing the branch
concentration function with the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch routing the
traffic to the appropriate end point. In Figure 1-4, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and
27x switch acts as the regional concentrators, receiving traffic from dozens and even
thousands of remote sites, and concentrating the traffic before forwarding it to the
correct location. In this case, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch is the
regional site.
In both examples, the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch could be either a single
node or a group of nodes networked together as a cluster. The PathBuilder S24x, 26x,
and 27x switch’s cluster feature is described below.

Cluster Application An important new feature available with the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch
is its use in a cluster. This allows as many as four PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x
switches to act a single unit for the purposes of connectivity. Though configured and
managed as individual nodes, when the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switches are
clustered together, devices attached to access ports on one node can have calls routed
out the network port of one of the other nodes.
The three high-speed ports on the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch
motherboard provide networking channels between the nodes to pass traffic from
network ports to access ports. The PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch cluster
allows for high port count and throughput primarily in support of the regional
concentrator applications.
The example in Figure 1-5 is a full mesh cluster which means that any access link
can reach any host connection. If a PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch node
within the cluster fails, only those links and host connections directly connected to
that node go down. Placement of host equipment, and use of redundant host
equipment can minimize the impact of any individual node failure. Furthermore,
Link Back Up features in the remotes can limit the degree of remote isolation if part
of the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch cluster fails.

Telecommunications Regulations
In the United States, FCC rules Part 68 require that the following user instructions
are provided:
The telephone company has the right to ask you for registration information about
your equipment that is connected to the telephone line. When requested, you
should provide your equipment’s FCC registration number and ringer equivalence
number (REN), if applicable.
The user instructions shall include the FCC registration number and a detailed list
of all ports that connect to the network. The information provided must also
include USOC connector jacks, the facility interface codes (FOC), service order
codes, (SOCs), and REN, as applicable.
REN is used to determine the number of devices that can be connected to an analog
telephone line, but is generally not applicable to digital service equipment.
Excessive RENs on the line may result in the devices’ not ringing in response to an
incoming call. Contact the telephone company to determine the maximum REN
sum for the calling area; in general, it should not exceed five.
The telephone company may change its equipment, operations, or procedures.
If these changes affect your equipment or service, the telephone company will
provide written notice so you may make the necessary changes with uninterrupted

DSU Input and Output Signaling
DSU Input and Output Signaling
Introduction
Input and output signaling information is useful as a debugging tool and replaces the
EIA summary information associated with other DIM types.
Input Signals
This table describes the input signals.
NIS
Not In Service
This signal is normally low (L). If no signal is received, or the DSU
option is in DSU Loopback mode, or if idle codes are received, NIS is
listed as high (H). This signal is used to determine if the other end of the
connection is available.
BPV
Bipolar Violation
This signal is “H” during normal operation. When the signal is “L,” it
indicates that some type of bipolar violation was received by the DSU
option. The signal toggles during a DSU loopback condition.
DL
DSU Loopback
This signal is normally “H.” An “L” indicates that a DSU loopback
mode is entered.
C+
Positive Sealing Current*
This signal is “H” if the DC current on the telephone company interface
is not in the positive direction.
C-
Negative Sealing Current*
This signal is “H” if the DC current on the telephone company interface
is not in the negative direction. An “L” indicates that the DSU option
has detected a negative “sealing” current and is therefore performing a
CSU loopback.
Note
When both C+ and C- are “H”, it indicates that no sealing current exists. This is
often the case when connected to other DSU type hardware. Normally, the signal
for C+ is “L” when connected to central office equipment (OCU hardware).
Output Signals
Although you cannot directly access the output signals, they are manipulated by the
DSU option software and may be useful for informational purposes. The following
table describes the output signals.
Signal
3-8
Description
RS
Reset
This output resets the DSU option hardware. Its normal operating state
is “H”.
LL
Local Loopback
When this signal is “L”, the DSU hardware is locally looping data back
to the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch hardware by way of the
EIM.
PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x Switch Hardware Installation
DSU Input and Output Signaling
Signal
Description (continued)
CL
CSU Loopback
When this signal is “L”, the DSU hardware is looping the remote
connection's receive to transmit.
IDL
Idle
An “H” on this signal tells the DSU hardware to send idle bipolar
violations to the remote system.
CLK
Clock Mode
The signal “H” denotes the use of the network clock. The DSU option
provides the clock when this signal is “L”.
You can view these signals using the control terminal Monitor menu item on the
Main menu.

DSU Internal Loopback
This loopback mode does not affect the external
interface but it does loop the local transmit data back to
the receive data within the EIM. This test is useful for
verifying that the EIM is connected and is working
properly from a digital integrity perspective.
DSU Internal and
External loopback
This loopback mode performs the internal loopback
mentioned above along with looping the external
transmit to the external receive to allow manual testing
of the remote interface.

CTP
Troubleshooting
If Problems Arise
Installing the DSU
Improper port connection of the EIM.
Improper telephone company interface connection.
The DSU DIM is not connected in DTE configuration.
The motherboard switches are not in the proper positions.
The DSU option Software is not operational.
The DSU port clock source option is not correct.
No signal from the telephone company interface.
The following information, available from the control terminal, can help you
troubleshoot.
Node Statistics
Used to verify that the software version contains the DSU
option modifications. It also indicates if the DSU DIM is
recognized by the software.
Port Statistics
Used to verify that data is sent without error. Error counts
may denote an error in clocking mode configuration. Port
statistics also indicate if the software recognizes the DSU
DIM.
Monitor
Input and output signals determine if the DSU option is in
a loopback mode requested by the remote end. This would
explain the inability to send data. Continuous bipolar
violations also indicate that the remote system is out of
service.
DSU Internal
Loopback
Failure of this loopback mode indicates that the EIM
module is not connected.
If any of your equipment is operating incorrectly, immediately remove it from the
telephone line before it harms your network. If the telephone company notes the
problem, they may temporarily disconnect your service. They will notify you in
advance of the disconnection, when possible. If advance notification is not feasible,
you will be notified as soon as possible. When you are notified, you will be given the
chance to correct the problem and be informed of your right to file a complaint with
the FCC.
If the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch Integral DSU needs repair, 3Com or an
authorized representative of 3Com can repair it. For information, contact 3Com

PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switches in a full mesh cluster configuration.
Usage
A full mesh application uses standard networking ports on the PathBuilder S24x,
26x, and 27x switch (ports 1, 2, and 3) and standard networking protocols
appropriate for your application (X.25, Voice Relay, etc.). All networking services
are available to the circuits between the clustered nodes.
Configuring
When configuring a full mesh application, remember that each node must be
configured individually. Ports 1, 2, and 3 on each PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x
switch will appear normally on the Port Record. The parameter Clock Speed and the
appropriate clock mode (Int, Ext, etc.) should be set depending on the DIM position
and speed. Clock speeds up to 2.048 Mbps are supported.
Cables
When cabling PathBuilder S200 series switch in a mesh application, use DB25 male
to DB25 male straight-through cables.
Ports
To use your PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch in a full mesh cluster, note that:
• Ports 1, 2, and 3 on all four nodes are for the mesh connections.
• Port 3 is always a DTE port (V.36 electrical).
• Ports 1 and 2 can be either DCE or DTE ports. This is determined by the way
you set the V.36 DIMs on the motherboard. Refer to the “Installing DIMs”
section earlier in this chapter.

Channelized Data
Overview
What Is It?
The Channelized Data option provides an alternative to using Serial Data Boards
(SDB) to concentrate data traffic from remote nodes attached to the PathBuilder
S24x, 26x, and 27x switch through a multiplexer.
Using one T1 or E1 card installed in a PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch,
Channelized Data supports a greater number of port connections between the
PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch and remote nodes than allowed is by SDBs.
For example, eight SDB cards installed in the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch
plus three motherboard ports allow a maximum of 19 connections per node, or two
ports per SDB card. With Channelized Data you can make up to 30 connections
using a T1 card or E1 card.
Note
Each E1 or T1 card contains two ports. However, the Channelized Data option
only supports up to 30 configured virtual ports for data traffic. The remaining
virtual ports available on the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch are reserved
for uncompressed voice traffic.
The Channelized Data option is configurable from the Control Terminal Port. See the
“Configuring Channelized Data” section on page 5-3 for details on how to configure
a PathBuilder S200 series switch for channelized data operation.
Statistics and
Alarms
The Channelized Data option uses the standard X.25 and Frame Relay statistics
available for the PathBuilder S200 series switch products family. Refer to the X.25
Configuration Basics Guide for information on statistics.
For details on alarms and reports, refer to the Alarms and Reports manual.

Channelized Data
Configuring Channelized Data
Configuring Channelized Data
Overview
Before you can use the Channelized Data option on your PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and
27x switch, you must configure the node for Channelized Data operation. This
section describes how to set up your PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch for
Channelized Data operation.
Before You Begin
Refer to the following list to make sure you have everything you need before you
begin to configure the Channelized Data option:
• Install a T1/E1 card in slot 8 on your PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch.
• If you want to pass both voice and data traffic, or just data traffic, make sure a
2 Mbps T1/E1 card is installed properly in slot 8 on your PathBuilder S24x,
26x, and 27x switch. If you want to pass voice traffic only, you can use a 512
kbps T1/E1 card.
• Obtain the timeslot information from your network service provider. The
timeslot information is needed to configure virtual ports for all your remote
connections.
• Install the software release containing the Channelized Data option in your
PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch.
• Make a CTP connection to the CTP port on your PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and
27x switch and begin to configure the Channelized Data option.
Frame Relay
Applications
For Frame Relay applications, you must configure a port and a station for every
timeslot with a unique destination.
What You Have to
Configure
You need to configure the following records and tables in your PathBuilder S24x,
26x, and 27x switch to perform Channelized Data operation:
Configure this Record/Table

This sets up the physical T1/E1 ports on
the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x
switch performing Channelized Data.
See the “Configuring T1 and E1 Physical Ports” section on page 5-5.
Virtual Port Record (for each remote
connection)
This sets up a Virtual Port Record entry
for each connection between the PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch and a
remote node. See the “Configuring Virtual Ports on the PathBuilder S24x, 26x,
and 27x Switch” section on page 5-18.
Virtual Port Mapping Table
This sets up a timeslot for each
connection between the PathBuilder
S24x, 26x, and 27x switch and the
remote nodes. Refer to the “Configuring

Channelized Data
Range:
1 to 255
Default:
1
Description:
Specifies the number of errors that must occur within a fixed
15- minute window before an alarm is declared. This is based on
the threshold value for Unavailable Seconds. The DS1 interface is
unavailable from the onset of 10 contiguous SESs or any condition
leading to a failure;
• once unavailable and if no failure is present, the DS1 interface
becomes available at the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with
no SESs
• once unavailable and if a failure is present, the DS1 interface
becomes available at the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with
no SESs if the failure clearing time is less than or equal to 10
seconds
• once unavailable and if a failure is present, the DS1 interface
becomes available at
– the onset of 10 contiguous seconds with no SESs if the
failure clearing time is more than 10 seconds
– or the onset period leading to the successful clearing
condition, whichever occurs later

From the CTP Main menu, select
Configure -> Ports.
The Ports menu appears, as shown
in Figure 5-3 on page 5-19.
2
The Port Type: parameter appears.
Enter the Port Number. This value
should be 100 or above to configure a
virtual port.
3
Enter X25 for an X.25 connection or
FR for a Frame Relay connection.
The standard port parameters for
X.25 or Frame Relay appear in
sequence. Refer to the appropriate
manuals for details.

Fill in the remaining parameters, and
enter a semicolon <;>. Press Return
when you are finished.
This saves the record in CMEM.
5
Perform a Node boot.
This implements the configuration
changes you made.
Boot a virtual port by entering the virtual port number and issuing a port boot
command. Booting a virtual port brings down SVCs associated with that virtual port,
but does not affect the operation of the T1 or E1 port, or of any other virtual ports.
Enabling/ Disabling Enabling or disabling a virtual port has no effect on a T1 or E1 port or other virtual
Virtual Ports
ports. However, disabling a T1 or E1 port makes all associated virtual ports unusable.
Enabling a T1 or E1 port makes all associated virtual ports usable; their SVCs can be
established. Virtual ports previously disabled via the disable port command remain
disabled.
Port Speed
5-18
Port speed for virtual ports is set from the DS0 Rate parameter in the Virtual Ports
Mapping Table. You can set the rate of speed for traffic at 56k or 64k. See the
“Configuring Virtual Port Mapping Table” section on page 5-20 for more details.

Configuring Virtual Port Mapping Table
Introduction
A T1 or E1 digital port comprises multiple logical data channels. These channels,
known as virtual ports, are not associated with any physical slot number and have no
physical I/O of their own.
Before You Begin
Obtain the timeslot assignments for all the remote nodes connecting to the
PathBuilder S24x, 26x, and 27x switch from your network services provider. You
need this information to complete the virtual ports configuration.
Function
By configuring the Virtual Port Mapping Table, a timeslot channel on a specific T1
or E1 line is mapped to a virtual port. Virtual ports are numbered from 100 to 254,
whereas ports with actual physical connections are numbered from 1 to 54.
Configuration
Guidelines
The Virtual Port Mapping Table must be configured in conjunction with other
records as follows.
• Configure the physical port record as either T1 or E1 and all virtual ports
before you configure the Virtual Port Mapping Table.
• Configure a Virtual Port Mapping Record to assign a timeslot number per
T1/E1 channel for the application.
