CANADIAN EQUIPMENT LIMITATIONS
The Industry Canada Certification label identifies certified equipment. This certification
means that the equipment meets certain telecommunications network protective, operational, and safety requirements. The Department does not guarantee the equipment will
operate to the user's satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed using an acceptable method of connection. In some cases, the company's inside wiring associated with a single line
individual service may be extended by means of a certified connector assembly (telephone extension
cord). The customer should be aware that compliance with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or equipment
malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect the
equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic waterpipe system, if present, are connected together. This
precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact the appropriate electric inspection authority, or an electrician, as appropriate.
The Load Number (LN) assigned to each terminal device denotes the percentage of the total load to be
connected to a telephone loop which is used by the device, to prevent overloading. The termination
on a loop may consist of any combination of devices subject only to the equipment that the total of the
LNs of all devices does not exceed 100.
The ringer equivalence number (REN) assigned to each terminal adapter is used to determine the total
number of devices that may be connected to each circuit. The sum of the RENs from all devices in the
circuit should not exceed a total of 5.0.

Frame Relay
Frame relay is a packet-switched service that allows efficient transfer of bursty
traffic in a WAN environment. It offers lower-cost data transfer when compared
to typical point-to-point applications. Using virtual connections within the frame
relay network and combining those into a single physical connection at each location results in lower cost. Frame relay providers use a frame relay switch to route
the data on each virtual circuit to the appropriate destination. Figures 1-1 and 1-2
illustrate a conversion from a typical point-to-point application to a frame relay
application.

The Frame Relay/Router upgrade option adds the capability for the ATLAS series
of Integrated Access Devices to act as a voice/data FRAD, a frame relay switch,
and an IP router in addition to the current available bandwidth manager and
switch applications.
Dedicated and Switched Connection Maps in a Single Platform
The ATLAS_800PLUS allocates dedicated bandwidth according to any of up to five
unique connection maps. Any DS0 on any T1 circuit can be mapped to any other
DS0 on up to 34 T1 circuits in the system. Dedicated Connection Maps can be
invoked manually or implemented automatically based on the time of day and
day of the week.
Additionally, the ATLAS_800PLUS can be configured to switch dialup calls to specific ports or DS0s based on the number that is dialed. Switched connection mapping is supported for dial calls placed over basic rate ISDN, primary rate ISDN, or
channelized T1.
Signaling Conversion for Maximum Interoperability
The ATLAS_800PLUS can convert between Robbed Bit Signaling and ISDN
D channel signaling, giving you the flexibility to get the speed and reliability of
ISDN, while preserving your investment in non-ISDN equipment. ATLAS can
also convert between D4 and ESF frame formats as well as AMI and B8ZS line
coding, providing interoperability with legacy equipment.

Chapter 1. Introduction
Flexible Network Management and Maintainability
Several network management methods are available for the ATLAS_800PLUS,
including SNMP support. VT 100 and Telnet are also offered, providing detailed
system configuration through an easy-to-use menu system. The terminal interface
is secured by six levels of password protection with varying degrees of management privileges. The terminal interface is accessed locally or remotely using either
the EIA-232 Chain In port on the rear of the unit or the Telnet interface. The
10BaseT interface on the Base Unit provides an Ethernet connection for SNMP
and Telnet connections.
Additionally, T-Watch PRO, ADTRAN’s Microsoft® Windows®-based GUI management system can allow end-to-end management with downstream ADTRAN
T1 products. User configurations can be preserved in non-volatile memory and
duplicated for managing multiple ATLAS implementations. ATLAS also supports
FLASH upgrades for future enhancements. You can remotely download software
using TFTP or XMODEM.
The front panel contains a 2x16 character backlit LCD display and an extensive
array of LEDs for alarm and status information pertaining to the system and the
individual modules. A front panel keypad allows navigation through the menu
system and access to system testing.
Several test capabilities allow you to diagnose the health of your T1, PRI, or BRI
circuits without additional test equipment. Standard Bantam test jacks located on
the rear panel also allow you to use external test equipment to monitor traffic.
Tests include local, remote, and V.54 loopbacks utilizing the 511, QRSS, all zeros,
and all ones test patterns.
Digital Access Cross-Connect System (DACS)
Inherent in the ATLAS_800PLUS architecture is the ability to cross connect, or
DACS, up to thirty-four T1 circuits. DACSing allows the assignment and redistribution, or grooming, of any DS0 on any T1 circuit to any other DS0 on any of the
thirty-four T1 circuits in the system. For optimizing network resources, any of
five dedicated connection maps can be invoked manually or automatically, based
on the time of day and day of the week (see Figure 1-3).

Chapter 1. Introduction
T1 Bandwidth Manager
As a T1 Bandwidth Manager, ATLAS_800PLUS combines the functions of a T1
CSU/DSU, an intelligent channel bank, a T1 Multiplexer, and DACS into a single
platform. The Bandwidth Manager supports a wide range of data applications
including T1 “drop and insert,” channel grooming, and wide area data transport.
ATLAS is ideal for point-to-point configurations or access to public networks. For
optimization of existing equipment and network resources, ATLAS can be paired
with ADTRAN’s TSU product offerings to support a variety of data and analog
voice applications (see Figure 1-4).
Figure 1-4. T1 Bandwidth Management
ISDN Access Switch
The ATLAS_800PLUS includes an advanced access architecture for switching dialup calls to specific ports or DS0s. As an access switch functioning in a user-to-user
network and user-to-user mode, ATLAS consolidates multiple basic rate ISDN
(BRI) connections onto T1/PRI access lines. Additionally, BRI-to-BRI, BRI-to-PRI,
and PRI-to-PRI switching are supported. ATLAS also converts between ISDN D
channel (PRI or BRI) and T1 robbed bit signaling, allowing a non-ISDN PBX to
access a more efficient ISDN facility. For network optimization, when bandwidth
is not being used for switched applications such as video conferencing, switched
connection mapping dynamically allocates bandwidth to the PB for voice traffic.
Call Filtering allows you to program the call types that will be answered and/or
originated on a per-user basis.
WAN Overbooking
The WAN Overbooking feature of ATLAS_800PLUS allows you to oversubscribe
switched bandwidth for situations where simultaneous access to the network by
every subscriber is not required. WAN Overbooking reduces telecommunications
expenses while still giving your subscriber base the connectivity they require.
Local subscriber-to-subscriber connections are made without accessing the network at all, resulting in even more efficient use of wide area bandwidth (see Figure 1-5 on page 1-6).

Microsoft Telnet version 1.0 does not implement full VT-100 emulation. However, many commercial Telnet clients for Microsoft Windows exist which fully
implement VT-100. In addition, a freeware client which is recommended for optimum performance is delivered with the ATLAS_800PLUS. See “VT-100” on
page 10-3 for details.
For detailed information on the commands available during a Telnet session, refer
to Chapter 5, “Using the Terminal Menu” on page 5-1.
VT-100 Operation
An EIA-232 serial connection is available via the chain-in port on the rear panel of
the ATLAS_800PLUS. The ATLAS_800PLUS provides the front panel menus to a
VT-100 type terminal. Follow these steps to set up the ATLAS_800PLUS for VT-100
terminal mode:
1.
Set the baud rate on the VT-100 terminal to 9600 baud (8/N/1).
2.
Use the front panel to set the ATLAS_800PLUS baud rate to match the terminal
baud rate. Select 2) CONFIG, S0) SYSTEM, 2) CHAIN PORT, then 1) BAUD
RATE.
3.
Use the ADTRAN-provided VT-100 terminal adapter to connect the COM
port of a VT-100 compatible terminal, or equivalent, to the eight-pin modular
jack labeled CONTROL on the rear of the unit. This connection provides both
local and remote configuration.
4.
Repeatedly press Enter on the front panel until the Login Menu appears.
After connecting a VT-100 terminal or a computer running VT-100 terminal-emulation software to this port, you may need to press Ctrl-R to refresh the display.
Refer to “Using the Terminal Menu” on page 5-1 for detailed information on
using the terminal menus.
When you begin the VT-100 session, you will be prompted for a password. The
default password is password (which is a Level 0 superuser password). You can
change this password using the Access Passwords option, which is only accessible
through the terminal menu. See “Access Passwords” on page 5-16 for details.
For detailed information on the commands available during a VT-100 session,
refer to Chapter 5, “Using the Terminal Menu” on page 5-1.

backup file. You can then use the same configuration with multiple ATLAS_
800PLUS units.
You can also use Config Transfer to retrieve a configuration file from a TFTP server.
ADTRAN delivers a TFTP program with ATLAS_ 800PLUS called TFTP Server. You
can configure any PC running Microsoft Windows with this software to store the
configuration file. See “TFTP Server” on page 10-4 for details on how to use the
TFTP Server software with these menu items to transfer configuration files.
Before using this command, the ATLAS 800 PLUS should have a valid IP address,
subnet mask, and default gateway (if required), and should be connected to an
Ethernet network.
Only one configuration transfer session (upload or download) can be active at a
time. The TCP/IP parameters are not saved or overwritten as part of an ATLAS

Trunk Conditioning
Trunk conditioning is a process which sets known values in the signaling bits and the data field for outgoing DS0s which are cross connected to a T1 port which is experiencing alarms (see Figure 5-9). The
trunk conditioning process consists of a 2.5-second transmission
(indicating call termination), followed by a continuous transmission
signaling the final condition (Seized or Idle) as chosen by the user.
Trunk conditioning only applies to RBS T1s in the dedicated map.
PBX
ATLAS 800
T1-A
T1-B
Figure 5-9. Trunk Conditioning
Example:
Voice traffic received on T1-A, and T1-B is groomed onto T1-C to the
PBX. If T1-A fails, the DS0s which were cross connected to T1-C
would receive trunk conditioning.
Trunk conditioning includes Fault Signaling (setting the state of the
signaling bits) and Fault Data Code (setting the state of the data bits).
Trunk conditioning can be set for each end of each T1 to T1 connection in a dedicated map. This is simplified by using the copy command (pressing C). The state of the signaling bits will be different for
connections to the Network versus connections to user equipment
(PBX).

Fault State
Final fault signaling state (Trunk Idle or Seized).
Idle would normally be used for one-way trunks
(only used for outgoing or incoming calls—not
both). Seized would normally be used for twoway trunks. This would prevent the PBX from
attempting to use a failed trunk for an outgoing
call.
Custom
This permits the user to define the Fault
signaling to use in the form of A/B set to 1/0.
Fault signaling is only visible when RBS is on.

Dial Plan includes menus for setting global ATLAS switch parameters and for setting individual parameters for each port in ATLAS that handles a switched call
(see Figure 5-10). The individual ports are separated into two groups—network
ports which terminate a connection from the Network and User ports which terminate incoming calls and in turn may be connected to user equipment.
Figure 5-10. Dial Plan Menu
In the menus described in the following sections, Incoming Calls refers to calls
coming to ATLAS from the Network (PSTN) and Outgoing Calls refers to calls
directed toward the Network (PSTN).
Network Term (Terminations)
This menu allows the user to define option parameters for ports which terminate
a connection from the Network (PSTN).
In applications where two ATLAS units are used in a point-to-point configuration, a port in the ATLAS at one end would act as the Network (User Termination), while the ATLAS at the opposite end would be terminating a “Network”
connection.
This menu includes a submenu (Interface Configuration) which varies with port
type. The section “Interface Configuration” on page 5-41 reflects the options for
port types which existed at the release of this manual. This information will also
be reflected in the manuals for individual option module types. If the option mod-

Slot/Port
Write security: 3; Read security: 5
These fields are used to select the ATLAS port that terminates a Network connection.
There may be more than one “end point” associated with a particular port. If a
T1 is connected to the PSTN, some DS0s may be used for long distance, while others are used for local calls. These would constitute two “end points” (trunks) over
a single physical port.
Sig (Signalling)
Write security: 3; Read security: 5
Defines the type of signaling being used for this connection (end point). RBS
would be for a T1 using Robbed Bit Signaling while PRI designates a Primary
Rate ISDN interface. This selection is only necessary if a T1/PRI is selected as
the Slot/Port type.
Outgoing#Accept
Write security: 3; Read security: 5
This submenu defines the parameters for the outgoing calls that ATLAS sends
to the Network.
Source ID
Write Security: 3 Read Security: 5
This field identifies the ID of the call sources that this endpoint will accept
calls from. The Source ID field is used to simplify the creation of a Dial Plan
in applications where the criterion for switching calls to a certain endpoint is
a function of which endpoint originated the call.
Source ID may be entered with the usual wild card entries (except $)
X = any digit 0—9
[1,3,5] = any of these digits
Default value = 0. The default ID for all Source endpoint is 0 and all accept #'s
is 0. This results in all calls being routed based on the dialed number.

Accept Numbers
This field designates which numbers this end point will pass on toward the
Network (PSTN). The accept list may consist of multiple entries. The numbers are defined using “wild cards”:
X =
Any single digit
N = Any single digit 2—9
$ = Any number of digits of any value
9 = This specific number
[1,2,3...] = A single digit in this group
Example: 1-800-$ would only permit toll free long distance calls to 1-800. If
this were used, then a second accept # would need to be specified - NXXXXXX. This would permit local numbers to be dialed.
Any specific entry will take precedence over a wild card. For example, if end point
“A” was designated as $ while end point “B” accepted 963-800X, then an incoming call to 963-800X would only be accepted by end point “B”.
Data 64 kbps, Analog, Speech, and Treat Call As
These options reflect the bearer capability the Network has provisioned for this line. If the ISDN lines were purchased with different
services provisioned, then ATLAS would send the call out of the port
which supports the type of service the call requires.
Example: The Network Termination is on a pair of BRIs (with the
same phone number) with one provisioned for data and the other for
voice. By enabling data in one and not the other, ATLAS ensures that
calls bearing data will be sent out the right BRI interface.
Search
Write Security: 3 Read Security: 5
Primary Search
The Search parameter instructs ATLAS which order to search for an
accept number match. Normally all searches are set to Primary. The
Secondary search selection would be used to force ATLAS to only
accept a call at this end point if all Primary end points were unavailable.
Example: All long distance calls should go out a PRI directly to
an IXC (MCI, ATT, etc.) and local calls should go out a T1 to the
LEC. It may be desirable to place long distance calls on the local
exchange if all of the IXC trunks are unavailable (busy or in
alarm). In this case, the primary accept number for the local
exchange would be N$, and the secondary accept would be 1$.

entries. The reject list may be used to more easily specify the call filtering desired. The “wild cards” are identical as in Outgoing Call
Accept.
The Reject list takes precedence over the Accept list.
Examples:
1- 900-$ would reject all 1-900 long distance calls.
1-$ would reject all long distance calls.
Data 64 Kbps, Analog, Speech, and Treat Call As.
These items allow ATLAS to reject outgoing calls based on call type.
Example:
A “$” for the Reject Number and Digital 56/64 enabled and
Audio & Speech Disabled would reject all digital calls while not
rejecting analog calls.
This list may remain blank if the Accept list meets desired filtering.

This menu sets configuration parameters for the end point. These parameters
will vary by the type of port selected. For detailed information on the interface configuration for all of the available modules, refer to “Interface Configuration” on page 5-41.
User Terminations
This menu allows you to define option parameters for ports which terminate a
connection from user equipment. In this case, ATLAS_ 800PLUS is acting like the
Network.
In applications where two ATLAS units are used in a point-to-point configuration, a port in the ATLAS at one end would act as the Network (set up as a User
Termination), while the ATLAS at the opposite end would be terminating a Network connection.

Example:
963-8000 would be a specific incoming number that would be
accepted by this end point. If this end point consisted of a T1 with
multiple DS0s, a “hunt” group for 963-8000 would be formed. The
entry $ would accept any call.
Any specific entry will take precedence over a wild card. For example, if end point
“A” was designated as $ while end point “B” accepted 963-800X, then an incoming call to 963-800X would only be accepted by end point “B.”

This submenu is used to define the parameters for outgoing calls that
ATLAS_ 800PLUS will not send to the Network.
Reject Numbers
This field designates which numbers this particular end point will

outgoing call filter is different for different users. The “wild cards”
are identical as in Outgoing Call Accept.
Example:
If desired, each user termination port can be set to reject different
numbers.
[0,1]-$ would reject all long distance calls, but only for this user termination. If
permitted in the Network Termination end point, this user could not dial long distance numbers while other users could.

The local area code. This is used for sending caller ID to the Network.
Number Complete Template
Write security: 1; Read security: 5
For any outgoing call, ATLAS must be able to recognize when the phone number
is complete. For example, a local number will be seven digits long while a long
distance (1+ #) will be 11 digits long. The ATLAS defaults will cover almost any
installation, and these templates should not require any additional user input
except for unusual circumstances. The template allows the use of “wildcard”
inputs to define numbers:
X = Any single digit
N = Any single digit 2—9
911 = This specific number
[1,2,3...] = A single digit in this group
Example:
1+(NXX) NXX - XXXX would be a pattern for a normal long distance call. Note
that the symbols ( ), +, - and space are not required and are only used to improve
readability.
Number Type Templates
Write security: 1; Read security: 5
ISDN interfaces require that a number type be sent over the D channel when a call
is sent or received. A normal RBS trunk does not send a type designator, but uses
prefixes instead. For example, “1 +” prefix is national long distance call type
while a “011 +” prefix would be an international long distance call type. These
templates form a table to permit ATLAS to translate the RBS prefix into a call type
for ISDN and vice- versa. The ATLAS default templates should cover all applications and should not need to be added to by the user except for very rare circumstances.
Automatic Routeback Rejection
Write security: 1; Read security: 5
Use extreme caution when disabling this option!
When enabled, Automatic Routeback Rejection prevents calls which enter through
network termination interfaces from being forwarded out another network interface. Such an event could happen if an incoming call specifies a number that has
no endpoint configured to accept it and another network interface has a call
acceptance entry which could accept it (such as $). Without automatic rejection,
such a call would be forwarded back to the Network. The Network would in turn
resend the call to the unit until all incoming resources are consumed.

Strip MSD
Write Security: 3 Read Security: 5
This option allows a selected quantity of the Most Significant Digits (MSD) of
a dialed number for ATLAS to be stripped prior to being forwarded out of the
port.
Example:
A Network port could be set to accept all calls beginning with 9 (9$), and then
with Strip MSD set to 1, all digits would be sent toward the Network except
the leading 9.
The Strip MSD parameter does not affect the Call Accept criteria. All of
the digits (including the MSDs that are subsequently stripped) are used as
accept criteria.
Network Specific Facility Voice

Called Digits Transferred
Write security: 2; Read security: 5
Some PRI switches may be provisioned to only send a portion of the called number (like DID). This menu item allows ATLAS to know how many digits to expect
(choose from None, Three, Four, and All). The default is All and would almost
always be correct. If less than All digits are sent, then the prefix is defined below.
Outgoing Caller ID
Write Security: 3 Read Security: 5
This item allows the user to insert a called ID based on selection. If set to Send as
Provided, then ATLAS will forward whatever ID it receives (including none). If
set to Substitute if not present, then ATLAS will insert a User defined ID value if
no value is received. If set to Substitute Always, then ATLAS will always insert
the user-defined ID in place of the value received.

(Presentation Allowed; Presentation Restricted; Number Not Available.)
ID Number
Value for Caller ID to be sent to the Network( i.e. 256 963 8020).
Source ID
The Source ID field simplifies the creation of a Dial Plan in applications where the
criteria for switching calls to a certain end point is a function of which end point
originated the call.
•
Default value = 0. The default ID for all end points is 0 and for all accept # s is
0. With default values, all calls are routed based only on dialed number.
•
Multiple end points can have the same Source ID
•
When creating the Call Accept list, specify a Source ID(s) as well as a dialed
number or range of dialed numbers to accept.
Example:
An application requires that all calls originating from Port 1 of the Quad T1/PRI
module in Slot 1 be switched to Port 4 of that same module. Assign a unique
Source ID (e.g., 7) to Port 1 of the module, and then configure Port 4 to only accept
calls from that unique Source ID (7).
Swap ANI/DNIS
This option swaps the ANI and DNIS numbers received from the Network. ANI
(Automatic Number Identification), is the billing number of the calling party, and
DNIS (Dialed Number Identification Service), is the called party number.
This swap will cause the ATLAS switchboard to use ANI to route the call.
The accept # in the dial plan must use the ANI number, not the DNIS number.
Quad T1/PRI Module (Network Termination/RBS)
When you are working in the Network Termination section of the Dial Plan menu,
the Slot is defined as a T1/PRI module, and Sig is set to RBS, the following interface configuration options are available:
First DS0
Write security: 2; Read security: 5
Defines to ATLAS the DS0s which will be used for this endpoint. These are the
DS0s which ATLAS will use to send and receive calls to and from the Network

DID Prefix
Write security: 3; Read security: 5
Defines to ATLAS the prefix digits which are not received as a part of the DID
number. ATLAS uses the combination of prefix and DID number to determine the User end point that should receive the incoming call.
This option only displays if Direct Inward Dialing (DID) is set to Enabled. If
DID is Disabled, then you must define the trunk number.
Trunk Number
Write security: 3; Read security: 5
When the Network connection does not provide DID digits, then ATLAS must be
given a number to use to determine which user end point should receive the
incoming call. This field only displays when Direct Inward Dialing is set to Disabled.
The trunk number must be specific (i.e., no “wild cards”).
Example: If a certain incoming DS0 (trunk) is meant to connect to an end point
with the accept number of 963-8615, the trunk number would be set to 963-8615.
Strip MSD
Write Security: 3 Read Security: 5
This option allows a selected quantity of the Most Significant Digits (MSD) of a
dialed number to be stripped prior to being forwarded out of the port.
Example:
A Network port could be set to accept all calls beginning with 9 (9$), and then
with Strip MSD set to 1, all digits would be sent toward the Network except

Creating a Dedicated Map
OVERVIEW
A Dedicated Map defines connections for dedicated bandwidth between ports
and grooms and cross-connects bandwidth between T1 ports. Any ATLAS port
supporting dedicated bandwidth can be mapped to any other port capable of supporting dedicated bandwidth.
Figure 6-1 shows an example of a dedicated map:

Figure 6-1. Dedicated Map Overview Example
For this example, there are three T1s (T1-A, T1-B, T1-C) with dedicated bandwidth from three remote sites. Each includes DS0s for data and for voice. At the
central site, each incoming DS0 for data must be mapped to a separate V.35 port
for connection to the router, while the voice connections must be collected
together (groomed) and sent to the PBX over a single T1 (T1-D).
Dedicated Map Design
Connections
The first step is to determine what connections need to be made and which ports
are involved. For the T1 ports, you also need to decide which DS0s will be used.

Creating a Dial Plan
Chapter 7
OVERVIEW
The ATLAS Dial Plan acts as the numbering plan for switched connections. This
menu defines to ATLAS the phone numbers and features associated with dial-up
ports. ATLAS supports Robbed Bit Signaling (RBS) T1 interfaces using DTMF
dialing, Primary Rate ISDN (PRI) and Basic Rate ISDN (BRI). In order to operate
as a switch, ATLAS must be able to terminate network connections (Network Terminations) and emulate the Network into other termination equipment (User Terminations).
Understanding the Application
In order to create a switched Dial Plan successfully, the topology of the configuration must be understood. First you have to understand which of the connections
are acting as Network Terminations and which are acting as User Terminations.
The examples provided in Figure 7-1 and Figure 7-2 are used to clarify these definitions:

Understanding the Dial Plan
The Dial Plan menus are subdivided into three separate menus. These include
menus to enter the numbering plan for Network Terminations and User Terminations, and a menu to set global parameters.
A corporate office has T1 RBS service for voice, but wants to add a PRI for video
conferencing and remote access. They would like to use the PRI for all functions
but still want to use the incoming BRI to supply added bandwidth. They want to
provide BRI lines to the video equipment, provide a PRI to the remote access
server (RAS) and send an RBS T1 to the PBX. (see Figure 7-3).

Figure 7-3. Remote Access and Video Conferencing Setup
For this example, the User Termination BRI lines (D, E, F) each have a specific
phone number. The PRI serving the RAS has an 8 number hunt group, and the T1
to the PBX uses DID.
Assume that all calls originating from the PBX to 1-900 numbers are to be
restricted.
Also assume that the Network Termination BRI lines (BRI A, B, C) should only
allow outgoing calls to other local corporate offices for Video conferencing. The
numbers fall in the range of 888-0100 to 888-0120
Configure the Ports
Follow the steps described in the “Creating a Dedicated Map” on page 6-1 to configure the Controller T1/PRI interfaces. This configuration action only brings up
the T1 transport.
The BRI configuration (SPID and phone number) is part of the Dial Plan.

FIRMWARE UPDATING
To provide feature enhancements in the future, the ATLAS supports firmware
updating by field personnel. Two transfer methods are available for use in updating any modules that contain Flash memory, including the system controller of
the ATLAS. The first transfer method provided is via the ATLAS Chain-In port
using XMODEM protocol. The second transfer method provided by ATLAS is via
the ATLAS built-in Ethernet port using TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol). To
simplify the update procedure, a common menu interface is available for use in
updating any upgradable module within ATLAS. The following sections describe
the procedure for updating using either transfer method.
Please consult the appropriate ATLAS module manual to determine if the module
supports flash upgrading.
XMODEM FIRMWARE UPDATING
The ATLAS_800PLUS supports firmware updating to any upgradable module
using XMODEM transfer protocol via the base unit’s Chain-In port. This transfer
protocol can be found in most PC communications software packages. To configure the Chain-In port’s data rate and other communication parameters, consult
the Chain Port Configuration section in the chapter “Installation” on page 2-1.
Ensure the communications software package being used has flow control turned
off.

SNMP Management
Chapter 9
UNDERSTANDING SNMP
As local area network (LAN) environments became standardized over the past
ten years, multi-vendor equipment grew with competition. It became necessary
to manage the various vendor equipment from a single control console. Thus,
SNMP emerged as the standard for managing commercial TCP/IP networks.
The term SNMP broadly refers to the message protocols used to exchange information between the network management station and the managed devices, as
well as to the structure of network management databases.
Basic Components
SNMP has three basic components: Network Manager, Agent, and MIB (Management Information Base).
Network Manager
The network manager is a control program that collects, controls, and presents
data pertinent to the operation of the network devices. It resides on a network
management station.
Agent
The agent is a control program that responds to queries and commands from the
network manager and returns requested information or invokes configuration
changes initiated by the manager. It resides in each network device.
MIB
The MIB is an index to the organized data within a network device. It defines the
operating parameters that can be controlled or monitored. When requesting the
network manager to retrieve or modify a particular piece of information about a
network device, the network manager transmits the request to that network
device. The agent in that device interprets the incoming request, performs the
requested task, and sends its response to the network manager. The network
manager collects all the data from the various network devices and presents it in a
consistent form.

Chapter 9. SNMP Management
TRAPS
An SNMP trap is a message sent by a Network Device, such as the ATLAS, to
report an operational anomaly or alarm condition.
DEFINING A TRAP DESTINATION LIST
For each trap event, a trap message will be sent to each member of the Trap Destination List. You can configure this list via Telnet session or VT100 menu.The
ATLAS will support up to four trap destinations. By default, the destination list is
empty.
To configure the trap destination list, select SNMP/TRAP DESTINATION from
the terminal menu (see Table 9-1). Options similar to the following will be displayed.

IP Address is the address of the network management station to which the
ATLAS will send the trap. Community is the trap community name used for the
selected Network Device. Trap Filtering is a record allowing you to assign thresholds to each category of the ATLAS events.
FILTERING TRAPS
You may disable the generation of trap events in three different ways. First, from
the user menu, you can select SNMP/TRAP TRANSMISSION to DISABLED. If
DISABLED, the ATLAS will not generate any trap messages. Second, trap thresholds can be defined to disable specific trap events. Each trap event has a severity
level (DISABLED, INFORMATIONAL, NORMAL, WARNING,MINOR, MAJOR,
CRITICAL) associated with it. Consider the example of the coldStart trap, a System Controller event. If you defined for destination 0 a trap filtering threshold of
WARNING for the System Controller, the coldStart trap would not be generated
to that destination because the coldStart severity level is defined as NORMAL.
Refer to the ATLAS MIB in Appendix X for a description of each enterprise trap
event supported by the ATLAS. Finally, certain traps can be controlled though
SNMP management of specific MIB variables supported by the ATLAS. These
variables will be outlined in the following sections.
STANDARD TRAPS

you set this value to ‘2,’ the generation of the authenticationFailure trap is disabled. This trap is enabled by setting snmpEnableAuthenTraps to ‘1’. One possible reason for an authentication failure would be an invalid community name in
the received protocol message.
DS1 TRAPS
The ATLAS will support RFC1406, the DS1 standard MIB, as well as the ADTRAN DS1 MIB, an extension to RFC1406. The ADTRAN DS1 groups provide the
capability to send traps for DS1 Alarm failures and Performance Threshold Crossing Alerts. The DS1 Alarm Table, defined in the ADTRAN DS1 extension MIB,
contains entries for enabling the status bits to send an Alarm Trap message. Each
Alarm Table row entry corresponds to a DS1 interface managed by the device. The
DS1 Alert Table, also defined in the ADTRAN DS1 MIB, contains similar entries
for controlling the Alert Traps.
DS1 ALARM TRAPS
DS1 Line status is reported in the bit-encoded dsx1LineStatus object variable.
Each trap represents a bit value = 1 change in dsx1LineStatus. Table 9-3 describes
the DS1 Alarm Traps supported by the ATLAS.

change sets an event bit = 1 in the adDS1LineEvent variable in the DS1 Alarm
Table. If you have previously set the corresponding enable bit = 1 in the
adDS1LineArm variable and adDS1AlarmEnable = On, then the ATLAS will send
an Alarm Trap message. A single Alarm Trap message may report multiple event
changes. The ATLAS clears the event bits after sending the Trap message or sending the response to a Get request for the adDS1LineEvent variable.

When one of the Total Alert thresholds is exceeded, the corresponding event bit is
set to 1 in the adDS1TotalAlert variable in the DS1 Alert Table. When enabled, the
ATLAS will send Alert Traps to each member of the Trap Destination List upon
detecting status bit changes in adDS1TotalAlert. If you have previously set the
corresponding enable bit = 1 in the adDS1TotalArm variable and
adDS1AlertEnable = On, then the ATLAS will send an Alarm Trap message. A
single Alert Trap message may report multiple event changes. The ATLAS clears
the event bits after sending the Trap message or sending the response to a Get
request for the adDS1TotalAlert variable.
The Current and Total Alerts described above are Near End events. The ATLAS
will also support Current and Total Alerts for the Far End. Far End Alert Traps are
generated upon status bit changes in adDS1FarCurrentAlert for Current Alerts
and adDS1FarTotalAlert for Total Alerts. Current and Total Far End Alerts can be
disabled by setting the corresponding enable bit = 0 in the adDS1FarCurrentArm
and adDS1FarTotalArm variables, respectively. Far End Alert Traps can also be
disabled by setting adDS1AlertEnable = Off.

UTILITIES DELIVERED WITH THE ATLAS_800PLUS
ADTRAN delivers several software utilities on three diskettes with the
ATLAS_800PLUS to make it easier for you to interface with the terminal menus
and to transfer configuration files to and from TFTP servers. The diskettes also
include the ATLAS_800PLUS MIB for use with SNMP (located in the MIB directory). The utilities all run on Microsoft Windows 3.1 or higher. The following sections describe the Telnet, VT-100, and TFTP Server utilities.
Telnet
The Telnet utility delivered with ATLAS_800PLUS provides enhancements from
standard Telnet programs that make it easier to work with ATLAS_800PLUS
options. Access theTelnet program remotely through the 10BaseT Ethernet port.
For a detailed description of how to work with the Telnet program, refer to “Navigating the Terminal Menu” on page 5-2, and for a detailed description of the Telnet interface, see Figure 5-1 on page 5-4.
If you need help setting up the ATLAS_800PLUS for a Telnet session, refer to “Telnet” on page 3-6.
Menu Options
The Telnet utility provides several extra options. This section describes some of
the features that you may find useful.
Session Menu
Connect
This option establishes a Telnet session. Either select an existing Host Name
from the list, or click the Add New button to add a new host name. Click Connect to establish the session (see Figure 10-1).

TFTP Server
The TFTP Server utility transfers ATLAS_800PLUS configuration files to and from
a TFTP server. You can install this program on a PC running any version of
Microsoft Windows. The configuration of an ATLAS 800 can be saved offline as a
backup file. The saved file may also be used to send the same configuration to
multiple ATLAS 800 units. Configuration file transfers are accomplished using the
TFTP protocol (a TCP/IP user protocol) through the 10BaseT Ethernet port. The
ATLAS 800 must have a valid IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway (if
required), and must be connected to an Ethernet network before proceeding. Figure 10-4 shows the TFTP Server interface.

Only one configuration transfer session (upload or download) may be active at a
time. The TCP/IP parameters are not saved or overwritten as part of an ATLAS
800 unit’s transferred configuration to allow sending identical configurations to
multiple units.
When you start this program, a port is automatically opened.

Saving the Current Configuration to a TFTP Server
1.
Make sure the TFTP server is running on a remote machine. If you are using
the ADTRAN TFTP Server program, just start the program and the server is
automatically enabled.
2.
Log in using Telnet to the ATLAS 800 for which you want to save the
configuration file.
A Level 3 or better password is required for performing a configuration download,
the same level required to modify most configuration parameters. Please consult
the ATLAS administrator if level 3 access is not available.
3.
Select the System Utility menu, then the Config Transfer menu.
4.
Set TFTP Server IP Address to the IP address of the machine running the
TFTP server program.
If you are using the ADTRAN TFTP server, the IP address displays in the Status
field.
5.
Change TFTP Server Filename to a unique filename. This will be the name of
the configuration file to save to the remote server.
You must enter the entire directory path to the file name.
Some TFTP servers constrain the format of the filename depending on the operating system of the server. For example, a TFTP server running on a PC under Windows 3.1 may only permit 8.3 format filenames (8 characters, period,
and three extension characters).
6.
10-6
Move to the Save Config Remotely activator button and press Enter to
proceed with the transfer. Respond with Y to the confirmation request.
7.
The Current Transfer Status field indicates the progress of the transfer.
8.
Once complete, the Previous Transfer Status field indicates success or
failure of the transfer. If successful, it will indicate TFTP Download
ATLAS_800PLUS User Manual
61200226L1-1
Chapter 10. ADTRAN Utilities
Complete, and the Current Transfer Status field displays Idle. The file is
now present on the TFTP server. (For the ADTRAN TFTP Server, it is stored in
the installation directory or the directory you specified.)
TFTP is not secure. No passwords are required for client access. Anyone can access files through the IP port on the server machine if they know the target file’s
name.
There are various reasons why a configuration download may fail, and a specific
error message is displayed in this case. The server may not allow the specific filename to be created or overwritten, the specified directory path may not be valid,
or there may not be sufficient disk space on the remote server for the file
(although configuration files are not normally large). A TFTP server may not be
available at the configured IP address. If the TFTP server cannot be contacted, the
download attempt will timeout in approximately 20 seconds.
To retrieve the configuration from a TFTP server
1.
Make sure a TFTP server is running on a remote machine. If you are running
the ADTRAN TFTP Server program, just start the program and the server is
automatically enabled.
2.
Log in using Telnet to the ATLAS 800 to which you want to upload a
configuration file.
A level 3 or better password is required for performing a configuration upload.
Please consult the ATLAS administrator if level 3 access is not available.
3.
Select the System Utility menu, then the Config Transfer menu.
4.
Set TFTP Server IP Address to the IP address of the machine running the
TFTP server program.
f you are using the ADTRAN TFTP server, the IP address displays in the Status
field.
5.
Change TFTP Server Filename to the filename of a previously saved
configuration you wish to load. Enter the complete directory path to the file.
6.
Move to the Load And Use Config activator button and press Enter to
proceed with the transfer. Respond with Y to the confirmation request.
The ATLAS 800 is rebooted immediately after a configuration is successfully loaded. No additional confirmation is requested, and any online sessions will be terminated.
7.

If the upload completes successfully, the unit reboots automatically and runs
using the new configuration. If the upload fails, an error message is present in
the Previous Transfer Status field. If the TFTP server cannot be contacted,
the attempt takes approximately 20 seconds to timeout.

System Event Logging
Appendix A
This section describes the entries that may be logged by the system event log. Of
particular importance is the log event’s Category – this is the minimum severity
level that must be set in order that the event be logged.
Use caution when changing Categories from their default levels. If too many
sources have their Category values set too low, the number of messages being
logged in a given period can be very large. If too many messages are being
logged too rapidly, system performance can be adversely affected.
Most of the events shown in Tables A-1 through A-11 are of use primarily during
troubleshooting and should be turned off in normal operation.

SYMPTOM
POSSIBLE CAUSES
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
Power-up Self-Test
Fails
Modules seated improperly, module failure
Remove all modules and cycle power to the unit.
If self-test still fails, call Technical Support and
report the results. If the self-test now passes, reinsert modules one at a time, running the self test
after installing each module. When an installed
module causes the self-test to fail, note it and
report results to tech support.
System Timing
Source Unlocked
(displayed on Terminal Interface,
“System Status”)
Selected Timing Source is
not present or clock is out
of tolerance
• Verify that system timing is correctly configured
for the desired clock.
• Verify that the interface cable to clock source is
present.
• Temporarily configure the system to operate off
of internal timing. Verify that the system can lock
to this clock.
Cannot pass data
from T1 interface
to V.35 port
Misconfiguration, improper
cabling
• Verify that the T1 signal is being received. If not,
check that the cabling is correct.
• Verify that the T1 is being received without errors. If not, double-check that framing and coding are set properly.
• Verify that desired dedicated map is active.
• Verify that bandwidth is mapped to the correct
V.35 port.
• Verify that the V.35 port is set to the correct data
rate (terminal interface).
• Check T1 performance using the terminal interface; if excessive errors, report fault to the Telco.
• Verify proper state of DTE signals via the terminal interface or the LCD front panel.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
Switched calls are
not working
Misconfiguration
• Verify that the end point has proper call accept/
reject criteria. For RBS applications, check signaling bit status on the terminal interface for
proper operation.
• Verify that the end point is set up for correct signaling.
Cannot communicate with ATLAS
with VT 100 connected to the Control/Chain In Port
Misconfiguration, improper
cabling
• Verify that ATLAS is receiving commands (press
keys on terminal and verify that the received byte
count in the front panel increments).
• Check cabling, verify that the chain port rate
matches that of the attached terminal; check
chain port status leads on the front panel.
Cannot establish
Telnet session with
ATLAS
Max Telnet sessions set to
0, IP address of ATLAS
does not match remote host
IP address
• Verify that the ethernet connection is in place,
check IP addresses programmed in ATLAS and
in the Telnet client, verify that session time-out
value is not set too low.
• Check for ethernet port activity on the front panel. Make sure the link is up, and data is being
transmitted and received.
