PRODUCT OVERVIEW
Wolf 2MS is a state-of-the-art monitoring system, designed to supervise FM air signals. The accuracy of the onboard
twin tuners allows a very rigorous frequencies scan, high performances in FM reception, MPX audio encoding and RDS
data streaming. This cutting-edge equipment features three main operating modes: continuously reception, bandscan
and smart bandscan.
The FM static modality allows to focus on a single channel, selected and monitored exclusively. Scan mode implies
that up to 32 channels for each tuner can be scanned and supervised in a single analysis. Receiving up to 64 memories
in total, Wolf 2MS allows a complete and accurate scrutiny of RF, MPX, RDS, Audio and RDS data dynamic services. In
smart mode the channel scan time is adjusted automatically according to instantaneous measurements requirements.
Outstanding quality of Wolf 2MS is the integration into a Network Management System. Supporting SNMP protocol,
all data and information captured during FM monitoring are graphically displayed on any kind of web interface. For
simplest configurations not requiring NMS software, Wolf 2MS can send via email a daily report of the 24 hours
events. Wolf 2MS provides a database sheet to manage this information.
Two built-in audio streamers are an essential feature of Wolf 2MS; audio channels can be streamed to a remote
logging system that records both audio and data coming from the transmitter site. The audio stream can also be sent
to a remote player for audio-on-demand purposes. From any site users can listen to each single FM tuner and
streamed audio, using any Internet browser.
Two onboard network interfaces provide maximum flexibility in streaming and connectivity processes. From PCs,
tablets and smartphones broadcasters can control completely Wolf 2MS and access all data and alarms. When an
alarm rises, it is the NMS system that sends notifications via SMS or email or takes an action to fix any possible issue.
External input sources are available: analog Left+Right and digital AES/EBU inputs. Users can connect audio to the
external input sources that should be under control. These audio inputs are constantly monitored: silence detection,
and audio presence. Thorough tests, performed also by end users, showed that Wolf 2MS circuits are extremely safe
and completely unaffected by any kind of radiofrequency interferences
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
Wolf 1MS and Wolf 2MS are FM monitoring systems designed for FM Off Air signal monitoring purpose. Wolf 1MS is
provided with one high quality FM tuner, while Wolf 2MS allows the broadcaster to receive up to two frequencies
thanks to internal double tuner. Tuners are each other independents and they can operate in three ways: Continuous
reception, bandscan and SmartScan.
Internal tuner assures strong performances in FM reception, RF and MPX audio analysis and RDS data stream output.
The monitoring made on FM channels can be a basic RF analysis or an advanced RF, MPX and AUDIO measurement.
-
-
Continuous reception: a single carrier is selected and under monitoring.
Bandscan mode: a total of 32 FM Channels can be scanned and monitored in Wolf 1MS and 64 FM Channels
for Wolf 2MS. The bandscan time is also user definable, in a range from 1 second up to 10 seconds for each
channel.
SmartScan mode allows an intelligent and variable scan time that is adjusted automatically to fit the
instantaneous measurement requirements. This is to avoid false-positive rising errors.
During continuous reception mode, each single tuner checks and completely decodes the multiplexed signal:
Mono level, Pilot level, Audio and RDS levels are measured and kept always under control. All captured datas during
FM Channel monitoring can be sent to a Network Management System (such as Axel Technology’s Ranger) or showed
in a common password protected web page. Communication between Wolf 2MS and Ranger NMS is SNMP v2C
protocol. For all single parameter under monitoring, a threshold can be set. If one or more values go out of range,
alarms are delivered.

Tuners modules are with extended RF input range from 11dBuV to over 120dBuV through an internal programmable
attenuator. FM monitor will be able to work nominally at its best with strong RF levels from 80dbuV to over 120dBuV
coming from an RF combiner. RF sensitivity of 20-30dBuV will be still available for the use as audio and RDS-UECP rebroadcaster.
Once the RF signal is received, audio should be streamed from the transmitter site back to a remote logging system.
The streamer input allows an internal selection between all inputs available: Tuners, External Analog In, External
AES/EBU In.
Wolf 1MS and Wolf 2MS are completed with “External Input” source: analog Left+Right input and Digital Left+Right in
AES/EBU format. This audio input is continuously monitored: silence detection (Threshold/time and level), left and
right presence, peak left, peak right. Rear-panel audio output always presents the audio decoded from Tuner-1 or
Tuner-2 and this setting is user definable while audio is available on Analog or AES/EBU format.
Wolf 1MS and Wolf 2MS provide a large variety of connection: double Ethernet port, USB and front panel headphone
output, 4x GPIn opto coupled and 4x GPOut over relays. Rs232 serial port for RDS-UECP bridging and rebroadcasting
purposes, and rear panel placed SD card to store or recall the complete equipment configuration.
RF antenna inputs are over BNC connectors, a XLR balanced stereo analog input and output, AES/EBU input and
output. OS and datas are loaded and stored over solid state memory as SD and flash RAM. Universal switching power
supply to operate worldwide, 1 rack unit space in fan-less configuration.

13.1.7 The Alternative Channel and the Adjacent Channel
The Adjacent Channel is the measure of the level closer to -100kHz and +100 kHz respect the fundamental carrier
frequency measured. This measure could indicate that at +100 kHz or -100kHz there is a carrier (or another kind of
disturb) which could affect the measurement of the fundamental frequency.
The Alternative Channel instead is exactly the same extent as set out above, but measured and +200 kHz-200 kHz. It is
shown, however, only the worst value, that is the most high and thus may cause more noise than our fundamental
frequency.

13.1.8 Tuner-1 Data – AF01-32 AF33-64
Before any explanation about how does Wolf 1MS/2MS decode and show AF frequency, some information on how does
AF Lists are encoded by RDS Encoders.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------There are two ways to transmit lists of alternative frequencies: Method A and Method B.
In both cases the lists should include only those frequencies for the nearest transmitters and repeaters (with overlapping
coverage areas). Generally speaking, Method A is used when the list contains no more than 25 frequencies, and
Method B when the list is longer (for a maximum of 24 lists). Method B is recommended when splitting areas or when
different programs are broadcast.
NOTE: use of encoding method A or B is not explicitly assigned by a dedicated signal to the receiver, as the latter is
capable of identifying which method is used by analyzing the transmitted data structure (whether or not they are
organized in pairs).
METHOD A
Compile the AF1 list assigning the tuning frequency (i.e. the frequency carrying the list of alternative frequencies) in the
first position, and then continue in strictly increasing order with the alternative frequencies transmitting exactly the same
program.
We recommend recording the alternative frequencies (those of adjacent transmitters and repeaters with overlapping
coverage areas) on each transmitter, being careful that the first position indicates the frequency carrying the list of
alternative frequencies.
METHOD B
As mentioned earlier, Method B is used with high numbers of alternative frequencies and/or when the transmitter also
has frequencies that broadcast different radio program at various times of day (splitting, local programming, etc.).
In the latter instance, the mobile receiver should check whether the AF is broadcasting the same content before selecting
another frequency.
Each list begins with the tuning frequency (for which the list is valid) and then contains up to 12 pairs of frequencies in
sequence, each containing the tuning frequency and an alternate. If there are more than 12 possible alternative
frequencies, the list continues in other lists in the same manner.
The order of the frequencies in each pair follow the rules below:
- If the order is increasing, the alternative frequency broadcasts the same programming as the tuning frequency.
- If the order is decreasing, the two frequencies have different programming
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WOLF 2MS WEB PAGE
By pressing AF01-32 it is possible to see all the decoded value by the RDS data Stream from Wolf 2MS. The maximum
number of AF are up to 64 with EON service (reported next chapter).
The AF lists can be ordered and see nearby each single AF some letters as reported in the picture. The letters between
brackets represents different insertion method.
(A) The AF list has been inserted as Method A. Respect the main AF frequency the AF are in increasing order with
alternative frequency transmitting exactly the same program.
(B) The AF list has been inserted as Method B. In particular List 2 has been inserted in Method B with increasing order,
that means that the AF is broadcasting the same program.
(R) This indication means that the order of the AF is not increasing but decreasing. In this case it means that the AF is
broadcasting for a part of the day a different program, and sometimes should have different program. The example is in
List-4
(?) This question mark means that the AF list has been inserted in a wrong way. It is not Method A increasing mode, it is
not Method B increasing/decreasing mode. So it means that the AF list has been
inserted in a wrong mode.
NOTE: The refresh of lists AF can be done manually by pressing the "Reset AF List" or
whenever a change is detected by PI Code lists are placed in AF mode growing.

13.2.3 Note about NTP Settings and behavior
To activate the NTP auto synchronization set a not zero value in AutoRequest Time. After a modification of this
parameter or a modification of the NTP IP address, the Wolf2MS will try to synchronize the system clock. After the first
synchronization, the server will be contacted automatically with the selected period in minutes.
After a system reboot or restart, if AutoRequestTime is activated, in the first operative minute the NTP-V3 server will be
contacted, as well as after the selected period.
The NtpSynch status starts as OK (synchronized) at the system startup, but after the first synchronization attempt it will
show the real status. Every NtpSync status variation is signaled (if enabled) with the NtpFailureNotificationTrap.
An NTP synchronization failure will be indicated with a red alarm line under the Date/Time field. Moreover, Date and time
will blink in the display panel in case of synchronization failure.
Starting from Fw release 1.0.4 the NTP behavior has been modified. Wolf 2MS tries for 3 minutes a replies from the NTP
server before reporting an error. In previous release Wolf 2MS replies immediately about the NTP loss. In case of alarm,
Wolf 2MS tries each single minute until Wolf 2MS gets a reply from NTP server.
With this new feature, random errors caused by NTP loss are no longer reported. No more parameters have been added
to mask this kind of alarm.

13.2.4 Note about Activity Heart Signal
This trap will be sent periodically to indicate that the system is OK and the Wolf2MS host process is able to communicate
with all its interfaces without apparent problems. One trap will be sent at every change of the time parameter or at the
system start-up (few seconds after the cold start SNMP trap), as well as according to the period selected. This Trap will
not be replayed.
The value “0” means function disabled. A different value indicates the period in minutes of the signal trap.
In the example tested the period is 10 minutes.

14.5 DATA EXPORT AND IMPORT
A new feature still under development, is related to data import and export on Wolf 2MS‘s SD Card and PC.
14.5.1 On SD Card
The Export allows the user to save the complete Wolf 2MS configuration in a SD Card. Moreover, also MAC Address is
exported and saved, so this function allows the user to create a complete “clone” of the Wolf 2MS. This can be useful,
once a Wolf 2MS is completely configured to store data on the SD Card, so in case of fault the SD Card can be removed
and inserted in a new Wolf 2MS equipment and using the Import function all data can be retrieved and get a complete
clone of the faulty equipment. To achieve this function the user must access via front panel, “SECURE DIGITAL CARD
MANAGER” and select IMPORT – EXPORT – FORMAT
14.5.2 Using web browser
Via Web browser it is possible to download or upload a configuration, save and store in a PC as a common Json file .
Same for Access Log in TXT and same for Trap Event Log as TXT log

Address, Subnet mark, and Gateway for each network card. Once the modifying has been done, press “Change ETH1 &
Reboot” or “Change ETH2 and Reboot”. The equipment will be rebooted and after restart modifying will be applied.
System Reboot button restart the device
14.6 SETTINGS – TUNER 1
This page allows the user to manage all the parameters and alarms managed by Wolf 2MS. The MAIN page shows and
give the users the capability to set the general parameters as GLOBAL SETTINGS and RECEIVER DEMODULATION
SETTINGS of the Wolf 2MS.
|
72
14.6.1 Tuner-1 – Main
In this page it is possible to set the behavior of the Tuner-1 and each single parameter it is reported below:
14.6.2 Tuning Mode
By using this parameter it is possible to change the tuning mode that should be OFF – Static – Scan – Smart Scan.
OFF
In OFF the tuner is unavailable
STATIC
in Static the tuner remain fixed on a single frequency that is depending by
the parameter Static Channel Index
SCAN
In Scan mode the tuner starts to scan the FM band, from channel 1 up to
the <Last Channel Scanning Index>
SMART SCAN
In smart mode the channel scan time is adjusted automatically according
to instantaneous measurements requirements.
14.6.3 Smart Scan
The smart scan is an scan evolution method and “smart” mode to check each single parameter of the checked
frequency: if during a scan, a single parameter of the scanned frequency is out-of-range the Wolf 2MS should decide to
remain more time (in seconds) on the checked frequency, in order to get the correct value, or exclude a false-positive
alarm.
Practical example: a typical case should be the decoding of the ODA service in RDS, or a PI Code, or any value
checked. If the decoding gives an “error” the Wolf 2MS can stay more seconds on this frequency, and wait in order to get
the correct value, and don’t generate an error (via snmp trap) that can overload the NMS system. In the real fact the
checked valued is correct, but sometimes due to a lot of unpredictable situation, this value should be considered as an
error.
|
73
14.6.4 Deemphasys
The internal tuner-1 Deemphasis value can be set between 50uS or 75uS accordingly to the country/region where the
Wolf 2MS has been installed.
14.6.5 External Attenuator
In order to provide to Wolf 2MS a correct RF input level, in case an external RF attenuator is required, it is necessary to
insert here the same attenuation level introduced by the external RF attenuator.
14.6.6 Global Tuner Mask Mode
By using this settings it is possible to set the behavior of the errors, if these should be masked or not.
Masked
Mask all alarms with priority over any individual configuration. Mask an alarm means
“NO errors are reported and NO errors are visible on the webpage”
Unmasked
Unmasks all alarms with priority over any individual configuration. Unmask an alarm
means that “the alarms are reported and visible on the webpage”
Severity-1
Mask all alarms with severity equal to 1
(The others errors are not masked)
Severity-2
Mask all alarms with severity less than or equal to 2
(The others errors are not masked)
Severity-3
Mask all alarms with severity less than or equal to 3.
Individual
Masking
This parameter allows the user to set for each single parameter under control if the
parameter must be masked or not.
|
74
It is possible to set for each single parameter under control the Masked or unmasked and the Severity Level on these
value:
RFL2 – RFL1 / RFH1 – RFH2 – DEV – PILOT Low – PILOT – RDS Low – RDS – AUDIO Dev - AUDIO Left – AUDIO
Right –AUDIO Ms - AUDIO Si - PI – PS – TP - TA – CT – RT – AF – EON – IH - TMC – RT+ - ODA1 – ODA2 – BLER
in the column MASK.
14.6.7 The meaning of “Mask” on each single parameter under control
On each single parameter under control it is also possible to set the if the single parameter can be Masked, unmasked,
Severity1 – Severity2 – Severity3 or RFL2. In this case each single parameter follow an Individual Masking.
The severity level is generally assigned in order to have a relation between the parameter under control and the priority.
All the parameters involved in Severity1 – Severity2 – Severity3 can be masked or not.
Masked
Alarm IS masked (if Global Tuner Mask Mode is set in individual masking)
Unmasked
Alarm IS NOT masked (if Global Tuner Mask Mode is set in individual masking)
Severity-1
The Alarm is masked only if Global Tuner Mask Mode is set on a Severity < or equal
to 1 (it means always not masked)
Severity-2
The Alarm is masked only if Global Tuner Mask Mode is set on a Severity < or equal
to 2
Severity-3
The Alarm is masked only if Global Tuner Mask Mode is set on a Severity < or equal
to 3 (it means always masked)
RFL2 Mask
Masked if the Alarm RFL2 Mask is active. (see Note2 below)
Note1: it is not possible to mix the (Severity1-Severity2-Severity3) with Individual Masking
Note2: in order to work properly the RFL2 Mask requires that validation is less of RFL2 and Hold time is greater than the
individual alarms that use this type of mask.

75
Example 1: Masked, Unmasked and Individual Masking.
This schemes shows from left to right the flow of each single Alarm.
In the first row the example is the PI Code. Once it is reported an error (PI) if the Parameter Mask in the single
Parameter under control is MASKED but the Global Tuner Mask Mode is INDIVIDUAL MASKING = NO error report

An example: PI Ref: 5*** matches with PI values from 5000 up to 5FFF.
Example:
The PI Code can be Ref1 or Ref2. If a PI Code is different from Ref1 and Ref2 and alarm is generated.
This setting is usefull to broadcaster that change the PI Code during regional broadcasting.
Note2
It is possible to replace any of the four digits of PI fields with a wildcard (represented with an asterisk).
So, for example, a PI Ref. 5*00 will match with 5000, 5100, 5200, etc.
It is possible to replace more than one field at a time (up to all!).
An example: PI Ref: 5*** matches with PI values from 5000 up to 5FFF.
Please focus on comparison mechanism: received PI will be compared first with RefMask1 and then with RefMask2, so
this case:
Ref1=5*02
Ref2=54*2
PI=5712
raise an alarm, but
Ref1=5**2
Ref2=1234
PI=5712
matches.
Note3
The PI Code can be compared with Ref1 or Ref2. If a PI Code is different from Ref1 and Ref2 and alarm is generated.
This setting is useful to broadcaster that change the PI Code during regional broadcasting.
Note4
If a Reference is empty no comparison with received PI occurs but only other RefMask is taken into account for a match.
If each Reference Mask are empty no comparison with PI occurs at all.

Note 2: PS Settings
As already specified for the alarms driven by an missing truth condition, the invalid condition is often not related to a
precise timing. In this case if at the end of the timeout all conditions required aren’t verified the alarm is raised and the
start of the failure is placed the second after the last valid condition has been verified. The Ps in the varibind is sampled
in this moment and so can be even a PS valid. Please consider this behavior definitive. About the alarm triggering rules,
please read again the matching criteria for rising an alarm.
Wolf2MS can perform various type of checks on received PS. As can be seen in fig. below, there are four Reference
Masks (set by default to ‘********’), a CharRef (an asterisk by default), a Timeout field and an Hold field.
System can compare received PS with UP TO four PS Reference Masks. If a Ref Mask is empty no check is performed
for that field. CharRef field specify a character (that can be chosen and modified by user) that can be used into PS Ref
Masks as a WILDCARD. So, for example, if CharRef=’*’ and PS Ref 1 = “RADIO***” both received PS = “RADIOABC”
that “RADIO123” match with Ref 1. Please pay attention to PS Ref field length. It can be from 1 up to 8 chars long.
Further inserted chars will be ignored. If a 8-chars long PS Ref is specified, the system check for a precise match with
received PS (of course taking into account any wildcard occurrence), otherwise PS Ref is considered as a sub-string to
be searched for into received PS (wildcard rules are still true). There are four types of operative scenario:
1. At least one PS Ref not empty. Timeout > 0.
System compares received PS with all not empty PS and it search for at least a match with ALL not empty Ref mask in a
time under Timeout value. Example: Ref1=”RADIO1”, Ref2=”RADIO2”, Ref3=”RADIO3”, Ref4=”” (empty), Timeout=45
sec.
Received PS must change in time and should contain “RADIO1”, “RADIO2” and “RADIO3” (not necessarily in this 3/3
order). System should recognize at least an occurrence of all three values in 45 seconds or an alarm condition raises up.
2. At least one PS Ref not empty. Timeout=0.
System compares received PS with all not empty PS Ref (sub)string. If a match with anyone of them is found, no alarm
condition is set, otherwise alarm rises up instantaneously.
3. ALL Ps Ref empty. Timeout > 0.
System checks only for PS content variations (in a time not exceeding Timeout). This is useful for PS scrolling monitor.
4. ALL Ps Ref empty. Timeout=0.
No check is performed by system. This is not a ‘real’ operative mode. NOTE: Ref Mask formed by 8 wildcards will match
anyway.

Particular case for RDS CT - Real Time Clock
For the Real Time Clock there is a double check:
Case1 – NO INFORMATION RECEIVED/Timeout: if no time information are received from 4A group (CT) for a period
greater than Timeout value an error is reported.
Case2 – Max Offset: if the received time (inside the 4A group CT) is different than the local Wolf 2MS time for a
MaxOffset value, an error is reported.
Note
A Timeout value lower than 60 has no sense, due to the fact that the group 4A is automatically encoded by RDS Encoder.

NAME
DESCRIPTION
Chan
Channel Number
Chan Label
Mnemonic name that can be applied to the Channel / Frequency
Frequency
Frequency corresponding to the Channel, expressed in MHz
Preset
String used by the configurator
NOTE
Foreword: How does generic RDS Data filter works.
Block Masks Mask Ref consist of 16 symbols, each referring to a bit of the data block of information
The symbols allowed are 0, 1, X, V.
|
122
If we set the mask to a specific bit to 0 or 1, it means that we expect the fixed value in the block (see eg. PI in Block1). If
even one or more of these masks do not match after Timeout + Validation Time, an alarm is generated.
If you specify an X for a bit generic, it means that this bit it’s masked and its value is not considered.
Finally, if you specify a V for a bit, we expect that, in the time specified by the timeout, there has been a change of state .
The length of the mask must be 16 characters. If the length is less will not be accepted if the items are cut higher than
16.
It’s possible to associated with one or more filters to a specific channel, simply by associating the index of the channel to
the Channel Ref required. For example, here the filters tuned to the channel (the no. 2) are the n. 4 and n. 7:
7
You can then bind up to 32 filters to a specific channel, or distribute it freely.
IMPORTANT NOTE
In the following examples the ChanRef = 4 because the tuned station is in this specific case on channel 4.
Where it is different, this has to be changed congruently.
In all the examples that follow for generality do not check a specific PI, clearly programming the block 1 for a specific PI,
the filter also considers the IP than simply the service.
|
123
14.6.40
Example 1 - PI with regional variations
Let's see how to set a filter on the data received in order to check for the presence of regional variations.
Then it sets a filter (eg. number 1):
ChanRef = 4
Block1Ref = XXXXVVVVXXXXXXXX (we want to verify the change of the IP assigned to regional variations, ignoring the
rest)
Block2Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (do not take care of the group: the PI is always transmitted)
Block3Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (we do not treat)
Block4Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (we do not treat)
Timeout = 43200s (time window (1 day) in which I expect the change in the PI)
Validation= 10s Hold = 10s Mask = Unmasked Trap = Enabled
This test allows to verify if at least once a day the PI regional variable changes
With PI = 5124
After the set time, if the IP does not vary (or varies incorrectly), you have an alarm on the filter:
|
124
Logger can also be seen on the trap with the index of the filter that has tripped:
By changing the regional variant, the alarm will cease.
And the logger also show a status (OK)
|
125
14.6.41
Example 2 - Control TA / TP
Let's see how to set a filter on the data received in order to check the status of bits TA and TP.
For example if we want an alarm to the radio (which supports the service TA) has the TA = On for a period longer than
10 minutes.
We set the filter:
ChanRef = 4
Block1Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (we do not care this time of the IP)
Block2Ref = 000001XXXXX0XXXX (group 0A - TP = 1 - TA = 0)
Block3Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (we do not treat)
Block4Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (we do not treat)
Timeout = 1200s
Validation=10s Hold =10s Mask=Unmasked Trap=Enabled
An alarm is generated if TA remains unchanged equal to 0 for 20 min
Starting from TP=1 and TA=0
When TA = 1, after the set time, the filter goes into alarm:
|
126
14.6.42
Example 3 - Control EON AF presence of specific IP
Let's see how to set a filter on the data received in order to check the presence of Mapped Frequencies of EON on a
given IP.
Both EON PI = 5201 and there is a list of Eon AF as follows:
TF = 103.3 = 103.5 AF1 AF2 AF3 = 103.6 = 105.2 Method (B): Mapped FM Freq. 1
Let's make sure that the radio transmits the group 14A.
We set the filter:
ChanRef = 4
Block1Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (we do not care this time of the IP)
Block2Ref = 11100XXXXXXX0101 (group 14A - Variant 5)
Block3Ref = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (they vary)
Block4Ref = 0101001000000001 (EON PI = 5201)
Timeout = 60s
Validation=10s Hold=10s Mask=Unmasked Trap=Enabled
If data are correct, the filter will not rise an alarm. For example, removing the EON AF (or changing the freq. Map),
eliminating the EON from the list, removing or changing the group 14A or changing the EON PI filter an alarm is
generated.
|
127
14.6.43
Example 4 - Control of the toggle A / B flag
Let's see how to set a filter on the data in order to check that it managed the A / B flag in the transmission of RadioText.
Attune on a radio that transmits RT with the use of A / B flag (eg. Rai).
We set the filter:
ChanRef = 4
Block1Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (we do not care this time of the IP)
Block2Ref = 00100XXXXXXVXXXX (group 2A - Change in A / B flag)
Block3Ref = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (must vary: they are the characters of the text RT)
Block4Ref = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (must vary: they are the characters of the text RT)
Timeout = 80s
Validation=10s Hold=10s Mask=Unmasked Trap=Enabled
In this way it 'possible to check the correct reception of the RadioText.
|
128
14.6.44
Example 5 - Transparent Data Channel
Let's see how to set a filter on the data in order to check that data is received on channel 1 TDC.
First, we check to be tuned to a radio that transmits data TDC:
After you set the filter for channel 1:
ChanRef = 4
Block1Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (do not take care of the IP)
Block2Ref = 01010XXXXXX00001 (Group 5A - channel 1)
Block3Ref = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (TDC data must vary)
Block4Ref = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (TDC data must vary)
Timeout = 120s (time window within which the data must vary)
Validation=10s Hold=10s Mask=Unmasked
If the channel over which data is sent is not the # 1 or if the data does not vary (eg.), The filter goes into alarm.

Example 6 - Recording TMC
Let's see how to set a filter on the data in order to check that data is received registration TMC
Let the typical case in which the TMC is transported on groups 8A and is recorded with two different messages (Msg1 =
0068, Msg2 = 6040) alternated. Recall that for the TMC AID = CD46.

Example 7 - Alert C on TMC
Let's see how to set a filter on the data in order to check that data is received TMC properly. Head if the bit X4 Alert-C is
equal to 0 for more than the timeout and / or no data block 3-4 is varied in time out. If X4 = 0 (bit 5 Block2) data traffic are
transmitted, X4 = 1 if the data are ancillary information not directly related to the service then X4 = 1 for a longer time
than expected and 'alarm condition.
We set the filter:
Filter 1:
ChanRef = 4
Block1Ref = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (do not take care of the IP)
Block2Ref = 10000XXXXXX0XXXX (group 8A - bit X4)
Block3Ref = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (TMC data: they vary)
Block4Ref = VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV (TMC data: they vary)
Timeout = 3600s (the time window within which the data must vary)
Validation=10s Hold=10s Mask= Unmasked
NOTE: Alarms Filter type not supported in SMART-SCAN mode. Then an alarm of this type does not block the scan. We
recommend that you use this feature to scan just to test repetitive conditions.

16.7 APPENDIX G – WOLF 2MS CONSIDERATION ON FW REL 1.2.1
In latest Wolf 2MS Firmware Release 1.2.1 has been improved and fixed the following features.
-
1. Highlights
Bug fix about issue concerning reboot and related issues
Bug fix about audio parameter saving
During NMS parameter change operation a bug was blocking the SNMP
Label correction of NMS-3
Has been added the information that trap-timeout and trap-retry work only in informV2 mode
Improved the trap retry from 100 to 1000
Tested Trap behavior with no Ethernet connection
2.
a.
b.
Information about new firmware rel.
Only if has been selected InformV2, traps are automatically managed and repeated until an acknowledgement
has been received by NMS system.
Informv2 protocol provides as reported below: informV2 this protocol provides:
The agent, in this case wolf2ms should try again with a certain time period defined trap-timeout and return
to N times (trap-Retry) the same trap if it does not receive an ACK (acknowledgement) from the NMS.
Scenario -1 example:
if we set (Trap-Type:informV2, Trap-Timeout:10, Trap-Retry:360) we are going to set Wolf 2MS to retry for about 1 hour
to find an ACK from NMS server. All the traps are queued waiting for a response
with the above example by disconnecting the network cable for a time below 1 hour, and creating events, as soon as
cable has been reconnected (or Server has been closed and the opened again) all the traps queued are delivered.
If the timing in sec is exceeded (Trap-timeout*Trap-Retry) all the traps will be lost.
c. Trap order is not granted as mentioned in the protocol, because it’s a delivery retry. The traps arriving is
determined by the Ethernet link come back, each trap contains all the timing information of the events so the
information can pass with no problem.
d. We have done some test by disconnecting the network until 30 minutes and all the workflow is perfectly
granted.
e. Using v1 or V2simple mode there is a simple trap delivery
3. Trap replay:
Wolf 2MS also supports trap-replay features replay (iTrapReplayEnabledTrapsReq). The server knows that the
synchronization could be lost and can ask to the agent (Wolf 2MS) all the variation that has been happened about issue
and alarms on the trap enabled. So a trap comes resend for each status variations that has been happened
Scenario -2 example:
The system works this way: the informV2 mode must plug gaps and short causal connection. Long connection
interruptions should be managed by the NMS server with a trapReplay request. Now the maximum time is 60 * 1000
seconds. So it could be managed until almost a day's lack of linkage.
Note:
If you change the parameters of the NMS pages, these become active 20-30 seconds later.

TECHNICAL APPENDIX
16.8 APPENDIX H – WOLF 2MS TEST PROCEDURE AND CONSIDERATION
Scope of the test proposal is to verify and test all Wolf2MS functionalities in order to check in detail the behavior of all
equipment. We will split all Wolf2MS functions in three Groups and test every function, checking and comparing the
results with the expected ones in all interfaces available (WEB PAGES, SNMP, Front Panel display and Leds).
For every function an example configuration will be described in a nominal situation, as well as what happens when an
alarm rises up. The expected timing will be indicated with the related measurements and in brief the effects on all
interfaces.
All the tests will be done and the variations explained on all the three possible situations (Static, Scan, SmartScan).
For every function will be indicated if an improvement is planned in the next releases or must considered definitive.
The scope of this test isn't a strict measure sequence, but scan all functionalities together for finding bugs, unexpected
behaviors on one or more interfaces, for enhancing weak and strong point of the system .
So, the test configuration proposed is only an example to follow, the important thing will be for every functionality have a
report about the test results. Every buggy behavior found will be fixed in the next release, every improvement suggested
will be discussed and every limitation found will be defined.

16.9 SYNCH TO PC TIME
By pressing the “Synch to PC Time” button, the WOLF2MS will be synchronized with the PC Clock
| TECHNICAL APPENDIX
145
TECHNICAL APPENDIX
16.10
NTP
To activate the NTP auto synchronization set a not zero value in AutoRequest Time.
After a modification of this parameter or a modification of the NTP IP address, the Wolf2MS will try to synchronize the
system clock. After the first synchronization, the server will be contacted automatically with the selected period in
minutes.
After a system reboot or restart, if AutoRequestTime is activated, in the first operative minute the NTP-V3 server will be
contacted, as well as after the selected period.
The NtpSynch status starts as OK(synchronized) at the system startup, but after the first synchronization attempt it will
show the real status. Every NtpSync status variation is signaled (if enabled) with the NtpFailureNotificationTrap.
An NTP synchronization failure will be indicated with a red alarm line under the Date/Time field.
Modified the behavior of the NTP client in the release 0.6.5. Peer Polling interval is set now as 4 (16 sec) in place of 3 (8
sec). If the timing adjustment is less than 5 seconds the sysclock will be adjusted in a slow continuous way (about 2
sec/hour) avoiding sysclocks jumps (very important for the streaming, will be documented in the manual) and the
recommended synch period should be at least one per day
| TECHNICAL APPENDIX
146
TECHNICAL APPENDIX
16.11
NORMAL ACTIVITY TRAP
This trap will be sent periodically to indicate that the system is OK and the Wolf2MS host process is able to communicate
with all its interfaces without apparent problems.
One trap will be sent at every change of the time parameter or at the system start-up (few seconds after the cold start
SNMP trap), as well as according to the period selected.
This Trap will not be replayed.
The value “0” means function disabled. A different value indicates the period in minutes of the signal trap.
In the example tested the period is 10 minutes.

RF-L2 Monitor test (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
An RF signal combined with one or more frequencies is applied to the tuner1 and/or tuner2 RF inputs. One carrier RF
level will be varied to test the alarms the other ones will be used to fill the scanning list (for the scanning test only) .
Frequencies of 100.80MHz (RF sweeping) and 100.50MHz (RF stable) will be used.
By slowly changing the RF levels (compatibly with the chosen Validation and Hold time) around the test zone, wait for the
alarms and go back up to the starting point.
Tested is in Static mode first.
In static mode the alarm rises up after the validation time. When the status variable changes, a trap will be sent with time
and RF values of the first sample out of the range. When the RF level is greater or equal to THR+ Hysteresis, the status
alarm after the hold time comes back to the (ok) state and another trap will be sent with the RF value and time of the first
valid sample.
The following values have been tested in static mode:
Thr: +30dBuV, Hyst: +3dBuV, Validation:2sec, Hold:2Sec
Thr: +30dBuV, Hyst: +3dBuV, Validation:20sec, Hold:10Sec
Thr: +30dBuV, Hyst: +3dBuV, Validation:180sec, Hold:60Sec
The observed behavior resulted to be compatible with the specifications with an accuracy error on the measure of about
1 dBuV and timing errors of about 1-2 seconds
Typical Accuracy and Precision expected in general:
Min RF value readable : -6 dBuV, Max RF value readable: +123 dBuV
Accuracy: +-3 dBuV, Precision +-2 dBuV (Range -6 dBuV to +19 dBuV)
Accuracy: +-2 dBuV, Precision +-1 dBuV (Range +20 dBuV to +79 dBuV)

The observed behavior resulted compatible with the specifications with an accuracy error on the measure of about 1
dBuV and timing errors of about 1-2 seconds
In scanning mode all traps will be sent in the same way but the validation and hold time must be calculated on the time
the scanner is observing the channel.

channel list) and by clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RF error will be displayed.
In case of more errors on the related channel, they will rotate for about 30 seconds in a sequence carousel.
In SmartScan Mode the behavior expected is the same of the normal Scanning mode because this parameter is
continuous and always available on the channel.

RF-H2 Monitor test (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
An RF combined signal with one or more frequencies are applied to the tuner1 and/or tuner2 RF inputs. One carrier RF
level will be varied to test the alarms the other ones will be used to fill the scanning list. We have used 100.80MHz (RF
sweeping) and 100.50MHz(RF stable).
By slowly changing the the RF levels (in compatible way with the Validation and Hold time chosen) around the test zone,
wait for the alarms and go back up to the starting point.
Tested in Static mode first.
In static mode the alarm rises up after the validation time, a trap will be sent when the status variable changes but with
the time and the RF value of the first sample out of the range. When the RF level is lower or equal to THR- Hysteresis,
the status alarm after the hold time comes back to the (ok) state and another trap will be sent with the RF value and the
time of the first valid sample.
We have tested in static mode with the following values:
Thr: +110dBuV, Hyst: +3dBuV, Validation:2sec, Hold:2Sec
Thr: +110dBuV, Hyst: +3dBuV, Validation:20sec, Hold:10Sec
Thr: +110dBuV, Hyst: +3dBuV, Validation:180sec, Hold:60Sec
The behavior observed has been compatible with the definition with an accuracy error on the measure of about 2 dBuV
and timing errors of about 1-2 seconds
Typical Accuracy and Precision expected in general:
Min RF value readable : -6 dBuV, Max RF value readable: +123 dBuV
Accuracy: +-3 dBuV, Precision +-2 dBuV (Range -6 dBuV to +19 dBuV)
Accuracy: +-2 dBuV, Precision +-1 dBuV (Range +20 dBuV to +79 dBuV)

Settings 75kHz (TDF setup) as dBr references and testing with a typical Mpx stereo signal (6.5kHz pilot deviation,

Settings 20kHz (MB setup) as dBr reference and testing with a typical Mpx stereo signal (6.5kHz pilot deviation, 2.0kHz

The traps will be sent in the instant the alarm rises up, but Left/Right and the time in the var-binds will be related to the
first sample out of the range.
Under the alarm condition the MPX alarm led on the panel must be on (flashing if the alarms are more than one on the
channel list) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the MPX error will be displayed.
In case of more errors on the related channel, they will rotate for about 30 seconds in a sequence carousel.
In SmartScan Mode the behavior expected is the same of the normal Scanning mode because this parameter is
continuous and always available on the channel.
REPLAY ENABLED TRAPS
The LEFT/RIGHT audio silence alarm trap are replayed with their original status, time and value. Trap Counter is
normally incremented.
All data and parameters are available in the MIB L3-5 to set and test this configuration.
NOTES
After some problems found in the release 0.62 (levels alignment , peaks in the separation, requests to set silence
threshold as lower as possible) we have modified some things.
1) The source silence alarm signal is now the RMS value in place of the PEAK (this choice allows to gain 3-5 dB in the
absolute level of the threshold). The average RMS signal in the muted channel is about -50 dBr (TDF reference) or 38dBr (MB reference)
2) Modified the attack time (now slower) of the audio measurement in the level zone from -50dBr to -30dBr to filter
separation peaks in some situations. This modification allows even to stabilize the muted channel separation, slightly
increasing the max measured separation. The behavior in the nominal level zone (-20dBr to +10dBr) is exactly the
same. This solution filters an unexpected receiver behavior in the particular case of high channel level unbalance (one
channel muted) and dynamic changes from very low to high levels. This seems to depend by a dynamic module (stereo
blend engine) that continues to act on the separation even in disabled mode. We are asking to Silicon Labs to find a
solution even on the receiver audio signal.

Smart Scan General Description
The SMART-SCAN mode has been strongly modified and tested in the last release. Here a little general description for
understanding and testing the definitive behavior .
In general the SMART-SCAN mode locks the scanning sequence before rising an alarm and it waits a defined time
(actually fixed for every service). In general with all services having the "Timeout" parameter in place of the "Validation"
in SMART-SCAN the behavior is different. The "Timeout" (as name and notation) is used because we intended that the
service is complex or non always available on the channel and instead of a validated error condition, we are searching
a valid condition before "Timeout" expires. This condition generates trouble in scanning situations, so doesn't exist a
sampled out of range data, but a waited event missing in the defined timing.
SMART-SCAN is able to wait up to six services at the same time (concurrently) handling the scanning sequencer and
masking the alarms under verification. At first it tries to sample the event in the scanning time, but at the end of the
timeout, before rising the alarm, waits a time (about the double of the normal period expected for the kind of service) and
decides to rise the alarm or not.
Example: CT service test inside a scanning list of 4 frequencies.
The 4A group will be searched for 600 seconds in every frequency. At the end of the 600seconds per stations (that's
means 2400 seconds) we are lucky and on three frequencies and we have found the 4A group, but in one them we have
not been able to sample a 4A group.
At the end of the "Timeout" in normal SCAN-MODE the CT alarm is raised for the unlucky station, the one in which the
random scanning routine failed.
In SMART-SCAN mode instead, the scanner will lock on the unlucky frequency and it will wait up to 130 seconds
(defined Smart Wait time for the CT service) to verify if really the service isn't available. If the waiting stage has success,
the scanner restarts, and it will try again to catch another 4A in the next 600 seconds with a normal scanning sequence.
If the waiting stage fails the alarm is raised and the scanner restarts to loop.
In the previous releases in the next loop (failed SmartWait case), the SMART-SCAN locks again trying to solve the
alarm, instead in the last release for the next 30 minutes (only for the frequency and the service with the alarm raised)
the loop will continue like a normal scan mode avoiding to lock the normal scanning sequence and trying to sample a
valid 4A .
So, in the last release the SMART-WAIT will try only one time every "RETRY SMART WAIT" time to lock the sequence
and verify an alarm after the previous one failed. This behavior will allow to avoid locking situations for the other stations
in the scanning list and with a one or more fails in a scanning list, the average looping will be guaranteed.
Please test it and give us suggestions to improve it (if necessary) or report buggy behaviors .
The SMART-WAIT state is visible on the web page as a red line under the Channel Number. The service/services with
the problem will be displayed inside the brackets. In the current release max 2 services are displayed at the same time,
in the final one will be 3.

RDS PI Data test (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on a Radio with PI=5215 tuned on frequency 100.5MHz.
The test was carried out on both tuners.
In Static mode we have set a PI Ref Mask to 5000 with Validation time and Hold time equal to 10 sec. (see fig. below)
The system checks for a match between any not empty Ref Masks and received PI. If at least one of them matches OK
condition is true, otherwise an alarm condition raises.
In this case there is an alarm condition (received PI=5215 won’t match with PI Ref1=5000).
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led (we have associated the PI alarm to the panel led Rds error) on the panel
must be on (not flashing) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed
(“RDS DATA”).
Tested in Scan mode with 3 frequencies:
F1: 100.5 MHz
F2: 95.3 MHz
F3: 96.7 MHz
and two Pi Ref Mask: 5000 and 51** (we have used wildcards) as depicted below.
Validation Time = 15 sec. Hold Time = 10 sec.
For this test we’ve added PI Ref Mask2=51**. Now system search for a PI=5000 or a PI from 5100 up to 51FF.
Received PI=5215 don’t match any PI Ref so an alarm condition raises.
| TECHNICAL APPENDIX
177
TECHNICAL APPENDIX
The traps will be sent in the instant the alarm rises up, but PI and the time in the var-binds will be related to the first failed
check.
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led on the panel must be on (flashing if the alarms are more than one on the
channel list) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed (“RDS
DATA”).
In case of more errors on the related channel, they will rotate for about 30 seconds in a sequence carousel.
In SmartScan Mode the behavior expected is the same of the normal Scanning mode because this parameter is
continuous and always available on the channel.
REPLAY ENABLED TRAPS
The Rds PI alarm trap are replayed with its original status, time and value. Trap Counter is normally incremented.
All data and parameters are available in the MIB L3-5 to set and test this configuration.

RDS PS Data test (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on a Radio with PS=”ABCRADIO” tuned on frequency 100.5MHz.
The test was carried out on both tuners.
In static mode we have set PS Ref Mask1 to “KRADIO” and we leave default values on Ref Mask2 up to Ref Mask4
(********) and CharRef=*, a Timeout of 30 sec and an Hold Time of 20 sec as in fig. above.
The system need to find a match between received PS and ALL of not empty Ref Masks no later than Timeout,
otherwise an alarm condition raises.
PS Ref Masks (like PI) accepts wildcards and wildcard character is shown by CharRef field. Of course this character can
be modified by user. Note that Ref Masks can be 1 to 8 chars long. If a Ref Mask is shorter than 8 chars a sub-string
search is performed on received PS. Also note that a Ref Mask formed by 8 wildcards will match anyway.
Instead if the Timeout is equal to zero only PS variations will be searched for having a valid condition
In this case an alarm condition raises up because system search a match for Ref1 substring (KRADIO) into PS.
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led (we have associated the PS alarm to the panel led Rds error) on the panel
must be on (not flashing) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed
(“RDS DATA”).
| TECHNICAL APPENDIX
179
TECHNICAL APPENDIX
Tested in Scan mode with 3 frequencies:
F1: 100.5 MHz
F2: 95.3 MHz
F3: 96.7 MHz
and two PS Ref Mask: “KRADIO” and “ABC” as depicted below.
Timeout = 30 sec. Hold Time = 10 sec.
In Scan Mode system perform a time-division cyclical check on selected radios (see Settings->Tuner1->Last Channel
Scanning Index or alter ego for Tuner 2). It starts from Chan 1 and rests for the setted Scan Time related to channel
before pass away. If an alarm condition (or more of them) is found, it will be signaled (and – if enabled – a trap is
launched).
Now system search a match on Chan1 PS (ABCRADIO) with two Refs (substring “KRADIO” and substring “ABC”).
PS Ref Mask2 content will match (“ABC” is a substring of “ABCRADIO”) but Ref Mask1 will not, so an error condition will
raises up.
The traps will be sent in the instant the alarm rises up, but PS and the time in the var-binds will be related to the moment
the Timeout is expired.
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led on the panel must be on (flashing if the alarms are more than one on the
channel list) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed (“RDS
DATA”).
In case of more errors on the related channel, they will rotate for about 30 seconds in a sequence carousel.
Tested in SmartScan with the same setup depicted above for ‘normal’ Scan Mode.
Scan Mode is an evolution of normal Scan Mode that rigidly cycles between selected Channels.
If an alarm condition is found on a channel, instead of state an alarm condition, system stops on channel for a period
(depending on tested service that cause alarm condition) collecting more data. In this state no alarm or Trap was
reported. The Channel Memory index reports the cause(s) of the stop (see below: “1 of 3 (PS)”).
| TECHNICAL APPENDIX
180
TECHNICAL APPENDIX
If a valid (no alarm) condition is found in this time, system unlocks and normal scan reprises.
If a new alarm condition raises up, system stops again for another observation step.
If no valid condition is found (as in this test case), system unlocks, normal scan reprises and an alarm condition and/or a
trap is reported:
Note that Channel Memory reports normal index display (“1 of 3”).
If alarm condition persists, after a while the system stops again on channel and the procedure restarts (note that now the
alarm condition status ON persists).

RDS TP Data test (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on a Radio with TP=ON tuned on frequency 100.5MHz.
The test was carried out on both tuners.
System checks received TP and compares it with TP Ref. If a match is found an alarm condition raises up.
In Static mode we have set a TP Ref Mask to OFF with Validation time of 15 sec. and Hold time equal to 25 sec. (see fig.
below)
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led (we have associated the TP alarm to the panel led Rds error) on the panel
must be on (not flashing) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed
(“RDS DATA”).
Tested in Scan mode with 3 frequencies:

RDS TA Data test (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on a Radio with TA=ON tuned on frequency 100.5MHz.
The test was carried out on both tuners.
System can check TA status and raise an alarm after a period of TA=ON (MaxOnTimeout) as can monitor TA status
invariance in time (alarm can be signaled after NoVarTimeout).
In Static mode we have set a TA MaxOnTimeout to 60 sec. and NoVarTimeout to 1440 min. (see fig. below)
Tuned radio TA=ON will raise up an alarm after MaxOnTimeout.
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led (we have associated the TA alarm to the panel led Rds error) on the panel
must be on (not flashing) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed
(“RDS DATA”).
Tested in Scan mode with 3 frequencies:
F1: 100.5 MHz
F2: 95.3 MHz
F3: 96.7 MHz
and MaxOnTimeout=60 sec. – NoVarTimeout=1440 min. as depicted below.
In Scan Mode an alarm condition raises up after MaxOnTimeout time passed on channel 1.

A second branch of test is performed with MaxOnTimeout=0 and NoVarTimeout=2 min. on each tuner in Static mode as
depicted below:
In this case we don’t care of TA=ON condition, but we look for TA status invariance in time.
After NoVarTimeout time (if TA status remains untouched) an alarm condition raises up.
And then in Scan Mode and SmartScan Mode with three frequencies

RDS CT Data test (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on a Radio tuned on frequency 100.5MHz that carries CT service.
The test was carried out on both tuners.
The system can check CT service signal presence and time offset between internal system clock and CT carried time.
First, we have set Radio CT=ON with an offset about 10 min.
When system receives first CT data, displays it and calculate time difference:
Then we have tested in Static Mode with Timeout=360 sec. and Offset Time = 60 sec.
Timeout field indicates max time the system wait for a new CT group before raise up an alarm.
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led (we have associated the CT alarm to the panel led Rds error) on the panel
must be on (not flashing) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed

encoder has a strong VBR characterization (for example at 28Kbit/sec the instant bit rate sweep from 8 to 40 Kbits/sec,
with an average always less or equal 28kbytes. With a muted or simple audio (like a test tone or silence) the bit rate
drops down to 8 Kbits/sec, instead with voice or music we have an average value of 28Kbit.
The IceCast server have a 48Kbytes buffer for every stream and instead every client player (VLC and so on) have a
different and programmable buffer size (some time expressed in second, but often expressed in Kbytes).
In the instant of the connection, the delay line is expressed in Kbytes, so the same 48Kbytes of buffer can be 14 sec with
normal music or 48 seconds in an extreme case of silenced signal.
With a 128 Kbit/sec (a more classic bit rate) we have a delay between 3 to 5 sec. The player creates another buffer
locally (usually 64 Kbytes, so the final delay is a complex mixed situation about 20 seconds in the 28Kbit/s example and
about 4 seconds in a 128kbits/s case).
So with a real time player is very difficult to estimate the buffer delay, but a recorder can (partially) compensate it.
The Home page players are quite simple and are intended only for occasional check tests . The behavior can be little
different in Firefox or Chrome. The peak meters will be visible again in future.
In the next months will be available the OPUS codec and the VORBIS codec will be improved for the bit rates over 48
Kbits/s (full sample rate mode). The VORBIS quality at very low bit rates (under 48 Kbits/s) instead must be considered
definitive. By the way the OPUS codec will give better performance only in the middle rate zone (40Kbits/s-96kbits/s) ,
over 96Kbits the audio quality will be comparable.

Note about event failure sampling
We have a logical problem related to a group of alarms (in general all ones with the "Timeout" in place of the
"Validation").
I saw in the TDF report (read too late to take an action on the release) that has been considered wrong the behavior of
the timing reported in the PS trap varbinds.
TDF asked that the trap must report the time of the first event out of range and the value in that instant.
The problem is that, with some kind of alarms the failure instant (as well as the wrong sampled value) doesn't exist.
So we have only a moment in which a valid situation or condition isn't happened and that a timer is expired.
Missing this information we decided for this group of alarms to consider the old logic the only one applicable, the same
one you are actually considered "KO".
So in the release 0.6.4. you'll find the same situation for "PS","CT","RT","EON" and in the next step "TMC", "RT+",
"ODA1" ,"ODA2".
The question is:
If I'm rising an alarm because I waited 70 seconds for a 4A block, or a I waited 50 seconds for a PS sequence and my
timer expired, I have only the timeout error as reference, no other values or timings. So the alarm trap time is the same of
the failed timeout event .
So, or this logic is accepted or we have to define how a failure past condition (not sampled) happens. I only have the last
valid event sampled and the timeout instant (nothing more between them).
For example in the CT case , I have the last valid 4A received, or for the PS the last valid completed sequence.
I can't locate future events easily because I have to consider a scanning complex situation.
------------------------------In the release 0.6.5 We have modified the logic to sample the failure event in the “Timeout case”. The trap will be sent at
the timeout expiration but the failure time will be considered some seconds after the last valid event seen with the
meaning of “After this time the service stopped to work properly”. This new logic will affect the following alarms
(PS,CT,RT,EON,TMC,RT+,ODA1,ODA2,IH)

RDS InHouse (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on IH service of a Radio tuned on frequency 100.5MHz.
The test was carried out on both tuners.
The system can monitor IH (6A) groups presence on tuned radio.
It can also monitor IH data flow (by monitoring content variations).
When 6A groups are not received for a certain time (selectable by Group Timeout) an error condition raises up.
If carried data don’t change for a certain time (selectable by Data Timeout) an error condition raises up.
On web client IH field shows the service status:
If 6A groups are correctly received and data content changes (in respect of timeouts) IH field print is “OK”.
When no IH service is broadcasted or the time between 6A groups exceeds Timeout, IH field print is “NO SERV”.
When IH data content don’t change before Timeout, IH field print is “NO DATA”.
For the Static Mode test we set Data Timeout=20 sec. Group Timeout=30 sec. and Hold Time=15 sec.
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led on (we have associated the IH alarm to the panel led Rds error) on the
panel must be on (not flashing) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be
displayed (“RDS DATA”).
Tested in Scan mode with 3 frequencies:
F1: 100.5 MHz

Note that Channel Memory reports normal index display (“1 of 3”).
If alarm condition persists, after a while the system stops again on channel and the procedure restarts (note that now the
alarm condition status ON persists).
The traps will be sent in the instant the alarm rises up, but IH and the time in the var-binds will be related to the first failed
check.
Under the alarm condition the RDS alarm led on the panel must be on (flashing if the alarms are more than one on the
channel list) and clicking on the channel number of the correspondent tuner the RDS error will be displayed (“RDS

RDS TMC (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on Trafic Message Channel service of a Radio tuned on frequency 100.5MHz.
The test was carried out on both tuners.
The system can monitor TMC registered groups presence on tuned radio.
It can also monitor TMC data flow (by monitoring associated data group presence) and TMC service registration (3A
groups with specific TMC AID).
When TMC data groups (usually 8A) are not received for a certain time (selectable by Timeout Data) an error condition
raises up.
Similarly when TMC registration groups (3A) are not received for a certain time (selectable by Timeout Reg.) an error
condition raises up.
On web client TMC field shows the service status:
If TMC service data is correctly received (in respect of timeouts) TMC field print is “OK”.
When no TMC service is broadcasted, TMC field print is “NO SERV”.
When no TMC groups data are received but 3A TMC service registration groups are broadcasted, TMC field print is “NO

RDS ODA-1 ODA-2 (Tuner-1 Tuner-2)
This test checks alarms and traps on ODA services of a Radio tuned on frequency 100.5MHz.
The test was carried out on both tuners and performed on each ODA service.
The system can monitor either two user specific registered ODA services on tuned radio.
Control parameters are similar to those one of TMC and RT+. In addition we found an input mask for the Application ID
(AID) related to each ODA service (a four digit hexadecimal field).
Alarm conditions raise up as we’ve seen in TMC and RT+ tests. Moreover, like as for TMC and RT+, data prints (e.g.
“NO DATA”, “NO REG”, etc.) follow the same rules.
For the test in Static Mode we have tuned on 100.5 MHz a radio that broadcast an ODA1 service with AID=5A14.
We set Data Timeout=20 sec. Group Timeout=30 sec. and Hold Time=40 sec.
Tested in Scan mode with 3 frequencies:
F1: 100.5 MHz
F2: 95.3 MHz
F3: 96.7 MHz
AID=5A14 - Data Timeout=20 sec. – Reg. Timeout=30 sec. - Hold Time=40 sec. as depicted below.

SMTP
If an SMTP server Is specified and at least one valid email is available, the wolf2ms SMTP client will try to send a group
of notification to the addresses.
All alarms enabled and with the email parameter enabled will be collected with the following logic:
After the first notification, before compiling the email the client waits from 30 to 120 seconds to get more notification
possible.
After 30 seconds without any other notification or a max of 120 second with sporadic notifications it tries to send the
email.
Actually only SMPT connection without authentication are supported.
To disable the service write 000.000.000.000 in the SMTP server Ip address field. Only a server with the standard
