Important safety instructions
The following safety instructions apply to the MAX:
1
Product installation should be performed by trained service personnel only.
2
Read and follow all warning notices and instructions marked on the product or included in
the manual.
3
The maximum recommended ambient temperature for MAX models is 104° Fahrenheit
(40° Celsius). Take care to allow sufficient air circulation or space between units when the
MAX is installed in a closed or multirack assembly, because the operating ambient
temperature of the rack environment might be greater than room ambient.
4
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation
of the product and to protect it from overheating, these slots and openings must not be
blocked or covered.
5
Installation of the MAX in a rack without sufficient air flow can be unsafe.
6
If installed in a rack, the rack should safely support the combined weight of all equipment
it supports. A fully loaded MAX weighs 15 lbs (6.8 kg).
7
The connections and equipment that supply power to the MAX should be capable of
operating safely with the maximum power requirements of the MAX. In the event of a
power overload, the supply circuits and supply wiring should not become hazardous. The
input rating of the MAX is printed on its nameplate.
8
Models with ac power inputs are intended for use with a three-wire grounding type
plug—a plug which has a grounding pin. This is a safety feature. Equipment grounding is
vital to ensure safe operation. Do not defeat the purpose of the grounding type plug by
modifying the plug or using an adapter.
9
Before installation, use an outlet tester or a voltmeter to check the ac receptacle for the
presence of earth ground. If the receptacle is not properly grounded, the installation must
not continue until a qualified electrician has corrected the problem. Similarly, in the case
of dc input power, check the dc ground(s).
10 If a three-wire grounding type power source is not available, consult a qualified electrician
to determine another method of grounding the equipment.
11 Models with dc power inputs must be connected to an earth ground through the terminal
block Earth/Chassis Ground connectors. This is a safety feature. Equipment grounding is
vital to ensure safe operation.
MAX 1800 Series Hardware Installation Guide
v
12 Before installing wires to the MAX unit’s dc power terminal block, verify that these wires
are not connected to any power source. Installing live wires (that is, wires connected to a
power source) is hazardous.
13 If using dc power, connect the equipment to a 48 Vdc supply source that is electrically
isolated from the ac source. The 48 Vdc source should be reliably connected to earth
ground.
14 Install only in restricted-access areas in accordance with Articles 110-16, 110-17, and
110-18 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.
15 Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord, and do not locate the product where
persons will walk on the power cord.
16 Do not attempt to service this product yourself. Opening or removing covers can expose
you to dangerous high voltage points or other risks. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
17 General purpose cables are provided with this product. Special cables, which might be
required by the regulatory inspection authority for the installation site, are the
responsibility of the customer.
18 When installed in the final configuration, the product must comply with the applicable
safety standards and regulatory requirements of the country in which it is installed. If
necessary, consult with the appropriate regulatory agencies and inspection authorities to
ensure compliance.
19 A rare phenomenon can create a voltage potential between the earth grounds of two or
more buildings. If products installed in separate buildings are interconnected, the voltage
potential might cause a hazardous condition. Consult a qualified electrical consultant to
determine whether or not this phenomenon exists and, if necessary, implement corrective
action before interconnecting the products.
In addition, if the equipment is to be used with telecommunications circuits, take the following
precautions:
vi
•
Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
•
Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for
wet locations.
•
Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been
disconnected at the network interface.
•
Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
Avoid using equipment connected to telephone lines (other than a cordless telephone)
during an electrical storm. There is a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
•
Do not use a telephone or other equipment connected to telephone lines to report a gas
leak in the vicinity of the leak.
!
Caution: The power supply cord plug serves as the main disconnect for the product. The
socket outlet must be installed near the product and be readily accessible.
!
Achtung: Das Gerät kann durch Herausziehen des Netzsteckers von der Stromquelle
getrennt werden. Die Steckdose muß sich in der Nähe des Geräts befinden und leicht zu
erreichen sein.
MAX 1800 Series Hardware Installation Guide
!
Attention: Le câble d’alimentation électrique permet de déconnecter l’appareil. La prise de
courant doit être installée à proximité de l’appareil et doit être facilement accessible.
Warning: To reduce the risk of fire, communication cable conductors must be 26 AWG or
larger.
Avertissement: Afin de reduire les risques d'incendie, les fils conducteurs du cable de
communication doivent etre d'un calibre minimum de 26 AWG (American Wire Gauge),
cest-a-dire d'un minimum de 0,404 mm.
Warnung: Um Feuerrisiken zu reduzieren, müssen die Kommunikationskabel-Anschlüße 26
AWG oder größer sein.

Planning the hardware installation
Before you begin installation of the MAX hardware, make sure that you have the items you
need and that you are aware of the requirements regarding installation of digital modems and
installation of MAX units in a rack.
What you need before you start
Before you install the MAX, make sure that you have the following items:
•
A suitable location in which to install the MAX hardware. (If installing the hardware in a
rack, see “Guidelines for installing MAX units in a rack” on page 2-2.)
•
One or more active BRI line(s), with at least one line set for bidirectional calling.
(Bidirectional calling allows you to test the MAX hardware by having the MAX dial out
on one channel and answer on another channel.)
•
An Ethernet interface. Also, if the MAX connects to an Ethernet LAN, you need the
appropriate cables and connectors to set up an Ethernet interface.
•
A locally connected host or workstation that can Telnet or Ping to the MAX.
•
A VT100 terminal or a workstation with a communications program that supports VT100
emulation.
•
Or, alternatively, a hand-held palmtop terminal and associated cable less than 10 feet (3
meters) in length.
•
A remote Ascend or compatible unit to which you can telnet or which you can Ping over a
dial-up Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) connection.
•
Any expansion modules that were shipped separately.
MAX 1800 Series Hardware Installation Guide
Preliminary November 4, 1998 2-1
Setting Up and Testing the MAX Hardware
Planning the hardware installation
Guidelines for installing digital modems
•
The Series56 architecture requires that all modem modules within a MAX chassis be
homogeneous. That is, Series56 modules must not be mixed with non-Series56 digital
modem modules.
•
The Series56 architecture also requires that the modem density be homogeneous. Modem
modules with mixed densities (for example, 8-port, or 16 port modem modules) must not
be combined in a single chassis.
•
The MAX can support a total of 96 digital modems.
Guidelines for installing MAX units in a rack
Figure 2-1 shows an example of MAX units installed in a rack.
Figure 2-1. MAX units installed in a rack.
•
Leave approximately four inches of vertical space between MAX units to allow adequate
air flow and leave room for handling the units if they need to be removed.
•
Leave approximately one foot between the racks of MAX units for adequate air flow.
•
Stair-step MAX units in adjacent open racks, so that hot air from one unit is not being
blown into an adjacent unit. The intake fans are on the right (as viewed from the front),
and the exhaust fans are on the left.
•
Ensure adequate cooling in the room.
•
Install racks with open sides, if possible, because the MAX fans vent on the side of the
unit. If you use enclosed racks:
–
Make sure that there are openings to the air conditioning system in the floor beneath
each cabinet.
–
Preferably use exhaust fans at the top of the cabinet. At a minimum, however, the
cabinets must be ventilated at the top.

Inserting an expansion card
If you ordered MAX expansion cards separately, continue with the next section. If all of your
expansion cards are preinstalled, skip to “Setting up the hardware” on page 2-4.
Inserting an expansion card
!
Caution: When installing any expansion card, be sure to follow proper procedures (such as
using a grounding mat and a wrist strap) to prevent buildup of static electricity.
If your MAX package includes expansion modules that are not already installed in your MAX,
insert the modules now. Perform the following steps:
1
Make sure the MAX power is off and the power cord is unplugged.
Warning: Failure to turn off the MAX power and unplug the power cord could result in
bodily injury.
2
Hold the expansion card with the network ports facing you, and insert the card into a back
panel slot as shown in Figure 2-2. Do not handle the slot cards from both ends. Be sure to
insert the card into guides that are in the same plane.
Figure 2-2. Inserting an expansion card into a MAX slot
3
Push the card along the internal guides until it is secure. The face plate of the expansion
card should touch the back-panel of the MAX.
Caution: Do not force the expansion card into the slot. Doing so can damage the card or
slot connector.
!
4
Tighten the screws on either side of the expansion cards. Now you are ready to set up the
hardware.

Setting up the hardware
Setting up the hardware
Before you set up the MAX hardware, you need to make sure you have the appropriate space.
You can install the MAX in a 19-inch or 23-inch rack. The dimensions of the MAX is 1.75" x
17" x 12”.
To set up the MAX hardware, proceed as follows:
1
Either place the MAX in a rack and secure it, or place the unit where you can have full
access to the front- and back-panels.
2
Use the null-modem cable provided in your package to connect your VT100 terminal, or
your workstation with VT100 terminal-emulation software, to the MAX control port.
3
If applicable, connect your hand-held palmtop terminal to the palmtop port.
Connecting to input power
You plug the ac source into an outlet. Attach the power cable to the connector at the back of the
unit.
(For power requirements, see Appendix B, “MAX Technical Specifications.”)
Connecting to the LAN
To connect the MAX to the LAN, connect your Ethernet LAN cable to the Ethernet interface
on the MAX. The MAX 1800 has two Ethernet ports:a 10/100Base-T and an AUI. You will
need an adapter if you have a different type of Ethernet LAN.
Before you start up the MAX, familiarize yourself with the indicator lights (LEDS).
(See“Interpreting the MAX LEDs” on page 2-5.)

to the SPID.
Note: The MAX can receive multichannel calls using Combinet or MP encapsulation only if
all channels of the call share a common phone number (namely, a hunt group). You can request
that your service provider supply you with a hunt group.
Information required from the ISDN BRI provider
If a Net/BRI module (MX-SL-8BRIN) is installed, your ISDN BRI provider must provide you
with the following information:
•
The phone number assigned to your ISDN BRI line.
•
The SPIDs assigned to your ISDN BRI line (for lines running in any mode other than
AT&T Point-to-Point). In countries outside the United States, SPIDs might or might not
be required. Check with your carrier.
•
Which channels are nailed up or unused, if any.
SPIDs for AT&T 5ESS switches
If your ISDN BRI line comes from an AT&T 5ESS switch operating in Multi-Point (MP) or
National ISDN-1 (NI-1) mode, each SPID has the following format:
01 NNNNNNN 0 TT
where:
•
NNNNNNN is the 7-digit phone number of the ISDN BRI line.
•
TT is the 2-digit TID (required only for NI-1).
A-2 Preliminary November 4, 1998
MAX 1800 Series Hardware Installation Guide
Provisioning the Switch
Information required from the ISDN BRI provider
The TID can be a value from 00 to 62. It is assigned by your carrier. Ascend recommends
that you use 00 as the TID for all SPIDs.
For example, suppose that 555-1212 is the 7-digit phone number of an ISDN BRI line using
Multi-Point mode. The telephone company gives you the following SPID:
0155512120
Note: Because Multi-Point mode is not an NI-1-compliant, no 2-digit TID is required.
Now, suppose that 555-6001 and 555-6002 are the 7-digit phone numbers of an ISDN BRI line
using NI-1 mode. You choose TID=00 for both numbers and the telephone company gives you
the following SPIDs:
015556001000
015556002000
If your ISDN BRI line operates in Point-to-Point (PTP) mode, SPIDs are not required.
SPIDs for Northern Telecom DMS-100 switches
If your ISDN BRI line comes from a Northern Telecom (NTI DMS-100) switch, each SPID
has the following format:
AAANNNNNNN SS TT
where:
•
AAA is the 3-digit area code of your ISDN BRI line.
•
NNNNNNN is the 7-digit phone number of your ISDN BRI line.
•
SS is the SPID suffix, which can contain zero, one, or two digits as follows:
•
–
Empty
–
1 and 2 for each ISDN BRI line
–
01 and 02 for each ISDN BRI line
TT is the 2-digit TID (required only for NI-1 [PVC=2]).
The TID can be a value from 00 to 62. It is assigned by your carrier. Ascend recommends
that you use 00 as the TID for all SPIDs.
For example, suppose you are using Northern Telecom in NTI Custom mode [PVC=1]). The
phone number of your ISDN BRI line, including the area code, is 415-555-1212. The
telephone company gives you the following SPID:
415555121201
Now suppose you are using Northern Telecom in NI-1 mode [PVC=2]). 510-555-6001 and
510-555-6002 are the phone numbers of your ISDN BRI line. You choose TID=00 for both
numbers and the telephone company gives you the following SPIDs:

Table C-14 specifies the recommended maximum length of the cable between the MAX and
the serial host equipment. Longer distances at the specified data rates are possible when you
use terminal timing. If you require still longer distances you can install the Ascend RPM, a
hardware device that provides an extended-distance high-speed link between the MAX and the
serial host equipment.

Serial WAN cabling specifications
The MAX unit’s serial WAN interface supports nailed-up connections to the WAN. Data
packets from the MAX unit’s bridge/router module can use this interface, but bit streams from
devices connected to the MAX unit’s serial host ports cannot.
The MAX unit’s serial WAN port is compatible with the following two electrical standards:
V.35
RS-449/422
In the cable wiring tables that follow, the MAX is the Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) that
connects to a Data Circuit-Terminating Equipment (DCE) device through its serial WAN port.
The MAX receives the Send Timing and Receive Timing clocks from the DCE device.
V.35 cable to WAN
You can connect a V.35 cable to the V.35 port of a DCE device. Table C-15 describes the V.35
cable pinouts.
