Introduction
The Unit is a flexible platform consisting of a base unit or chassis into which between one
and six Media Processing Modules (MPMs) can be plugged. The base unit provides an
Ethernet control interface, and Ethernet data interfaces, it also provides transport stream
processing functionality. Other functionality such as video / audio transcoding, or other
input or output interfaces are provided by the media processing modules.
License Keys
License Keys control the availability of some of the features accessible from the unit and are
issued to a specific chassis, not a module, and are held within the chassis.
Base Chassis
This section introduces the chassis and describes the functions associated with the host
controller.
Media Processing Module (MPM)
The following media processing module is available:
MPM1 HD/SD Transcoder
This provides high quality MPEG-2 and H.264 Video transcoding, and multi-standard
audio transcoding.

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Introduction > License Keys
License Keys
Overview
License Keys control the availability of some features and are issued to a specific base unit
not a media processing module, even if the functionality being enabled is provided by a
module.
Features
License Keys consist of a feature, and the number of instances of this feature that are
allowed within the chassis.
License Keys are allocated on a ‘first configured first served’ basis within the chassis. If an
attempt is made to enable a feature, but the required license key is not available then the
feature is not enabled, and a log message is generated.
When a function that has a license associated with it is disabled, the license key is released
within 1 second, and therefore available to be re-allocated .
Verifying which licenses are present in the Unit
Access to the transcoder web pages is necessary to verify the licenses that are enabled on
the unit.
Navigate to Configure > Licenses. This page displays the marketing code, number of
each license and a description of the feature enabled by the license.
Ordering Additional Licenses.
N.B. License keys are unit-specific. They cannot be loaded onto a different unit.
When ordering additional licenses for existing units the following information is needed:
1. Unique Chip ID of the unit is required to generate the key.
This is retrieved by navigating to the following web page :
Configure > System > Base Unit > Advanced
The Chip ID value is displayed just beneath the diagram of the transcoder.
2. The TOTAL FINAL number of ALL types of license required (including licenses already
2.
enabled on the unit) needs to be provided.
The above information is used to generate a new license key file, which then needs to be
loaded onto the appropriate unit.
Entering License Keys
The keys are saved in an XML file (newlicensedetail.xml) ready to be entered onto the unit
via the web page
Browse to: Configure > Licenses
In the license box enter the license filename and select upload.
NOTE:
The front panel CANNOT be used to enter license keys!

1U Base Chassis (Dual AC)
Overview
The Ericsson SPR1100 consists of a base chassis, dual AC inputs and up to four modules.
The base chassis is a 1 ‘RU’ 19" rack mount chassis that provides the control interfaces, and
two pairs of dual redundant Ethernet ports for data input and output.
The modules provide the video, audio and data processing functionality and can be ‘Hot
Swapped’, i.e. inserted or removed whilst the chassis is powered.
Why Have Two Mains Connectors
Many broadcasting sites have two power supply chains, either from the master switchboard
or, for major sites, from different points on the supply grid. As the most common cause of
system failure is loss of power, feeding the chassis from the separate chains ensures
reliability of supply and, therefore, continuity of service.

Manual Configuration via the Web Pages
The Ericsson SPR1100 has been designed to be configured and controlled by its own web
interface, which is described here.
The main Transcode Configuration page can be found by the following navigation :
Configure > Services
1) Configure Input Streams
The left-hand panel of the Transcode page defines the input Transport Streams to be
processed by the unit.
Transport Streams are grouped by Physical Interface. Each Transport Stream is defined by
its IP address and port number. Multiple services can reside within each transport stream,
with multiple components within each service.
The tree of input streams is navigated by expanding and contracting items using the and
buttons alongside. All entries within an item can be expanded by right-clicking on that
item and selecting Expand All .
Selecting an item (by clicking on it) causes the relevant properties for that item to be
displayed in the "Properties" panel. Properties that cannot be edited will be "greyed out".
Transport streams may be added to a Data Interface by right-clicking on the interface entry
and selecting Add transport stream .
2) Configure Output Streams
The second panel from the left defines the output Transport Streams that will be produced
by the unit.
Transport Streams are again grouped by Physical Interface. Each transport Stream has an
IP address and port number, and can contain multiple services, with multiple components in
each service.
Transport Streams may be added in several ways:
Right-clicking the Output Interface and selecting Add transport stream .
Dragging streams or services from the Inputs panel and dropping them onto an
appropriate place in the heirarchy of the Outputs panel.
NOTE:
Each input service may be used in up to two independent (and different)
transcode operations. This is achieved by dragging the same input service to
multiple output multicasts. Each transcode will require a separate license.
Output services can be duplicated up to four times, so that the same transcode operation
can be included in up to four output Transport Streams. This is achieved by right-clicking on
the output service and selecting "Duplicate Selected on output".
3) Configure the Transcode Operations
Each item in the Outputs panel can be configured at its position in the heirarchy. This allows
the operator to configure all dependent items together; for example, selecting a transport
stream would allow all services within that transport stream to be configured together.
Individual components can also be altered if a common configuration is not desired.
For each item selected, a number of panes will appear in theProperties panel. These
include:
Transport Stream
Service
Video Component
Video PIP Component
Audio Component
Not all of these will be available for every component.
Each pane of the configuration may have several sets of parameters that may be
configured. These are arranged in a tabbed interface within the pane.
4) Warnings, Errors and History
At the bottom of the Services Configuration page is an "Information" panel. This can show
Warnings, Errors, or Change History according to the tab selection on the left hand side
5) Allocation Status
With the very dense transcode configurations possible with the Ericsson SPR1100, it is all
too easy to lose track of exactly how much of the unit's resource has been used.
To assist the operator in managing the total allocation usage, the Services Configuration
page has an Allocation pane to show the amount of resource allocated or available with the
configuration currently set up on the page.
If more detail is required, the panel has a "Details" tab which will show the
allocated/available breakdown for each transcode type.
6) Apply Configuration
All configuration changes initially only occur in the User Interface. The Ericsson SPR1100
does not change its behaviour until the operator presses the "Apply All" button.
Once the configuration is applied, the unit is updated with the new configuration.
NOTE:
Changing the configuration may cause output glitching. This is kept to a
minimum; transcoder units which do not need reconfiguration will not be
interrupted. Additionally, changing the output bit rate willnot cause a glitch.

Transport Stream Output Overview
MPEG-2 Compliancy
The encapsulated transport stream packets (video, audio, VBI/ANC data and PCR - 188
bytes), are fully compliant MPEG-2 transport streams (all relevant fields completed,
continuity counters, PTS/DTS, adaptation fields etc.).
Transport Streams
The system can form up to 128 output transport streams, with each stream mirrored on the
two physical output interfaces.
Transport Streams are encapsulated in either a UDP or a UDP and RTP packet and can have
added Pro-MPEG FEC packets before being transmitted out of the assigned Data Ethernet
port(s).
ProMPEG FEC
ProMPEG FEC (Forward Error Correction) as per SMPTE 2022 1/2 can be added to the
MPEG-2 Transport Stream to improve the reliability over IP networks if the relevant license
(SPR/SWO/PROFEC) has been purchased. One license instance is required per Transport
Stream.
NOTE:
The ProMPEG FEC functionality is not yet available on this product. Please
contact Customer Services for more details.

Constraints on FEC Parameters
To promote interoperability and simplify implementation, limits are specified for values of
the L (number of columns) and D (number of rows) parameters. ProMPEG FEC requires
equipment manufacturers to support all combinations of values of L and D within these
limits. The specified limits are:
Columns Only: (L*D <= 100) and (1 <= L <= 20) and (4 <= D <= 20)
Rows and Columns: (L*D <= 100) and (4 <= L <= 20) and (4 <= D <= 20)
Background
Forward Error Correction or FEC, enables packets lost during transmission over IP networks
to be recovered by adding extra information to the transmitted data. The particular type of
FEC used on the unit is that specified by SMPTE 2022 1/2.
The key features of ProMPEG FEC are:
• Open standard FEC scheme.
• Increased robustness of transmission.
• Increases network reach through FEC on high loss links.
• Highly configurable depending on bandwidth vs. robustness.
• FEC transmitted separately to media stream.
• Independent of video compression standard (MPEG-2, MPEG-4).
ProMPEG FEC can help to solve the problems caused by missing packets. It is an open
standard for protection of contribution broadcast real-time transmissions over IP networks
by facilitating real-time lost packet recovery at the receive units. It permits flexible
configurations for optimisation requirements. The scheme uses an RTP layer which adds
timing information for sequence correction. FEC packets are transmitted in separate IP
packets. It uses a matrix of media packets to calculate the FEC packets. The matrix size
defined by columns (L) and rows (D). FEC packets are calculated along columns and rows
using the XOR function. FEC can be 1D (Column Only) or 2D (Column and Row). Media and
FEC packets are transmitted on separate IP streams with the Column FEC stream offset
from media stream and has a UDP port number which is the media port number +2. The
Row FEC stream is offset from Media stream and has UDP port number which is the media
port number +4. This arrangement means that non-enabled FEC receivers can simply ignore
FEC streams and decode the media packets. The FEC data stream is off-set from the media
stream to protect against burst error loss and jitter. At the receiver, lost packets recovered
using the FEC data packets. The Column FEC protects against burst errors and the Row FEC
protects against random errors. ProMPEG FEC recovers lost packets using column and
(optionally) row FEC packets using the XOR function on the remaining packets. Depending
on the distribution and severity of the pack loss not all errors are recoverable.
The overhead which results from ProMPEG FEC transmitting extra packets depends on
whether column or column and row FEC is selected and how many columns and rows there
are. (Note that L = number of columns, D = number of rows.)
Column FEC: 1D FEC Overhead = (L+(D*L))/(D*L) = 1/D + 1
Worst case, 4 rows = 25%
Best case, 20 rows = 5%
Column and Row FEC: 2D FEC Overhead = (D+L+(D*L))/(D*L)
Worst case, 4 x 4 = 50%
Best case, 10 x 10 = 20%
FEC offers two methods of block alignment (also referred to as FEC linearisation) for use
when generating FEC packets: Non Block Aligned and Block Aligned. Both are guaranteed of
being able to correct L errors, sometimes more. The Block Aligned method can however
correct 2L+2 errors; this never happens with Non-Block Aligned.
Non-Block Aligned can in theory have a lower latency at the decoder if it can be guaranteed
that the mode of operation will never change.
Block Aligned linearisation is dealt with in Annex B of the ProMPEG Code of Practice. In
Block Aligned column FEC packets are sent every D’th frame and the L Column FEC packets
are played out every D slots. They are therefore evenly spread over the D*L matrix period.
Non Block Aligned linearisation is dealt with in Annex A of the ProMPEG Code of Practice. In
Non Block Aligned the matrix is ‘skewed’ for the column calculation. The L column FEC
packets are played out at the end of every column plus a constant. For ‘square’ matrices
(diamonds) where L=D then these column packets will emerge at regular intervals. For
‘rectangular’ diamonds they will not. In the case of a 4 column by 20 row matrix the 4 FEC
packets will emerge within 16 slots, followed by a gap of 64 slots before the next 4. It
therefore produces a less linear spread of packets.
Receivers which do not have FEC capability can simply ignore the FEC packets and just
make use of the media packets.

Services
Overview
The system is capable of forming up to 72 services divided between the output transport
streams.
Each service can contain a maximum of 18 elementary streams, consisting of a maximum of
8 data components, 8 audio components, one main video and one PIP video component.
An elementary stream can be included in up to four services. Only one main video
elementary stream can be assigned to a service, and the audio delay will be matched to the
video. A PIP Video stream may also be added. Only one PCR can be associated with a
service.
Service Information Tables
The SI tables that the system generates for each individual output transport stream can be
selected. The following table shows the available levels.
SI Level
Description
Off
On (PAT/PMT Only)
Elementary streams only
PAT/PMT are generated
On (PAT/PMT/SDT/CAT)
The listed tables are generated. The CAT will
be empty as Conditional Access is not
supported in this release.
Some users may not require ETR 290 compliance, so it is possible to set thePMT repetition
rate to either 100 ms (default) or 500 ms.
Formation of SI
SI packet formation and play out is the responsibility of the host card. However it is the
Media Processing Module's responsibility to provide SI data fields related to the stream that
it is generating.
Repetition Rate
The repetition rate of SI packets must take into account the output transport stream rate,
otherwise the jitter introduced by the multiplexing of packets to form the transport stream
can lead to the SI repetition rate being too long.

Overview
The compressed output streams from the module are in the form of MPEG-2 transport
packets that have been encapsulated into a transport stream packet.

Output Bit Rate
The output rate of the transport packets is derived from the 27 MHz reference clock and is
accurate to within 1 kbps of the configured transport bit rate.
The output video bit rate of the MPM is configurable within ranges dictated by the operating
mode. These ranges are listed in the MPM1 Feature Summary page. The configured video
rate means the transport stream rate.
The module supports bit-stuffing to maintain configured bit rate if the operating mode
requires it.
The output of a module never exceeds the configured bit rate (or bit rate ceiling).
PCR
The MPM will insert a PCR in each video stream header. See Appendices > Clock and Timing
> Program Clock Reference (PCR).
Transport Packets
The MPM supports adaptation field stuffing of transport packets for the alignment of PES
packets to transport packet boundaries. Valid continuity counter values are inserted into the
transport packet headers.

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Transport Stream Output > Transport Stream > Audio Output
Audio Output
Transcoding
The audio transcoder supports transcoding at 48 kHz only.
The audio output is formed of fully compliant MPEG-2 transport packets encapsulated into a
transport stream packet. The module runs in aligned mode where there are an integer
number of audio frames fitted into a PES packet, therefore a PES packet will be the start of
an audio packet.
The audio output rate is derived from the 27MHz reference clock.
Lip Sync
The Video Transcoder ensures that lip sync is maintained between the limits of audio leading
video by 10 ms to video leading audio by 30 ms.
PID Assignment
The module enables a PID to be assigned to each audio channel separately, which includes
the ability to assign separate PID’s to every mono channel. The PID value is configurable.
PCR Placeholders
The module enables a PCR placeholder to be put in the adaptation field of every audio PID
stream. See Appendices > Clock and Timing > Program Clock Reference (PCR)

Ethernet: Control
Overview
The Base Chassis has two Ethernet control ports that support IEEE 802.3 100BASE-TX and
1000BASE-T protocols. The control ports are accessible via RJ-45 connectors mounted on
the rear panel of the unit.
Ethernet Control Port Numbering
The Ethernet control ports are used to connect the unit to a web browser or the control
system (nCompass Control [V6.5 onwards]).
Ethernet Control Port Parameters
NOTE:
Control via the Data input ethernet ports is not supported.
A single IP port is defined for all ethernet control of the chassis. The physical ports used for
ethernet control are by default the control ethernet ports. The control ports can raise an
alarm during abnormal operational conditions, (see Looking After the Unit > Troubleshooting

Importing Transport Stream Information from a
Spreadsheet
For rapid import of input Transport Stream information, the Ericsson SPR1100 provides a
mechanism to import from a spreadsheet or text file
The process is available by right-clicking on the "Host Inputs" line in the Inputs panel, and
then selecting "Import Transport Streams"
A window will then pop up offering the user the ability to download a template, either as a
spreadsheet (.xls) or a text file (.txt).
This template can be edited on the operator's computer to incorporate the streams desired.
Once editing is complete, the data can be pasted back into the popup window. Be careful to
preserve TAB characters in the data during this process.
Pressing the "OK" button will transfer the data to the Inputs panel, and pressing "Cancel"
will cancel the operation.
If the "Auto Save" box is checked, the Ericsson SPR1100 will be updated immediately on
import.

Once the Ericsson SPR1100 has been configured, the current state of the unit can be
determined from the Config Report page
The initial view shows each component of each service. The report indicates all known data
about the component, and also to which card and encode engine the component has been
allocated.
The drop-down boxes towards the top of the form enable the user to filter which elements
he wishes to see. In this way, particular components can be found rapidly and accurately,
enabling stream faults to be found with ease.

Cards / Forced Reallocation
Excluding Encoder Cards / Forced Reallocation
Each Encoder Card may be manually excluded from the encode process. This will cause
services to be allocated to other cards, enabling the removal of the card in question. In this
way, essential maintenance can be carried out with minimum disruption.
To use the automatic reallocation system, it must first be turned on. This action is
performed with a checkbox in the "Action" drop-down menu in the "Modules" panel:
To change the exclusion settings for a card, right-click that card in the "Modules" panel or
select the card by clicking on it and use the "Action" drop-down menu again..
Checking the box excludes the card, unchecking it re-enables that card.

Transcode Input Redundancy
The Ericsson SPR1100 has three modes of redundancy which apply to input Transcode
Streams:
Same Multicast. Each Physical Data Interface carries the same multicast(s). Each
service can have a "Primary" and a "Secondary" source. In the event of the Primary
failing, the secondary will be selected automatically.
Different Multicast, Same Network. One Physical Data Interface can carry several
multicast streams, some of which will be marked as "Secondary" to the "Primary"
multicasts. In the event that the Primary multicast fails, the secondary will
automatically be selected to take over.
Different Multicast, Different Network. One Physical Data Interface will carry the
"Primary" multicasts, with the other Physical Data Interface carrying the "Secondary"
ones. Again, the Secondary multicasts will be selected if the Primaries fail.
Multicasts can be added as "Secondary" in the Properties panel for a Physical Data
Interface. Select the "Select" checkbox for the multicast to be the Secondary, then rightclick on the Primary multicast. A popup menu will allow the operator to make the checkboxselected multicast into a Secondary :
A new Multicast Transport Stream can be created from the same menu, if that is desired.
Manual redundancy
A manual switch can be selected by right clicking on the secondary stream, and selecting
"Activate". Secondaries may only be activated if they contain services used in current
transcode operations.
NOTE:
This function, unlike almost everything else in the interface, takes effect
immediately. The "Apply All" button is not required.
Similarly, the Primary/Secondary roles can be swapped over by right-clocking either
multicast and selecting "Swap".
Automatic redundancy
Automatic redundancy is triggered by loss of transport stream lock.
Once a switch to the backup has taken place, a manual revert is possible by right clicking on
the primary stream and clicking "Activate".

transmits the same multicasts.
If the IP address, or subnet mask of a secondary port is set to 0.0.0.0, then it will be
assumed that it is operating in a mirrored redundancy mode with the primary port, and
therefore has the same IP address and subnet mask.

This topic describes how an MPEG-2 transport stream is carried over an IP link.
1 to 7 MPEG Transport Stream Packets
RTP Header (optional)
UDP (User Datagram Protocol)
IP (Internet Protocol)
Ethernet (IEEE 802)
Between one and seven MPEG transport stream packets are carried in a UDP packet. The
UDP packet may optionally also contain an Real Time Protocol (RTP) header, which adds
additional information such as a sequence number and a timestamp, which can help in the
detection of packet loss across a network.
The UDP header is 8 bytes long, and the RTP header is 12 bytes long.
The network layer protocol is IPV4, which adds a 20 byte header to every packet.
The physical link layer is then Ethernet at either 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps.

Current Configuration
The Host Controller maintains a copy of the current system configuration in flash memory.
On system re-start, this current system configuration is restored, so the system returns to
its previous state.
The parameters associated with each transcoder module slot are stored, so that if a
transcoder module is removed, and then a module of the same type is plugged in to the
slot, the system will attempt to apply the previous configuration for the module in that slot.
The current configuration of the unit can be extracted from the chassis in the form of an
XML file.

Temperature Monitoring
Overview
Temperatures are reported to the user in degrees Celcius (° C) and degrees Fahrenheit (°
F).
Host Card Monitoring
The die temperature of the main components on the Host card are monitored, and reported
to an accuracy of ±2 ° C.
A host card temperature alarm threshold can be set that, if exceeded, causes a ‘System
Over Temperature’ Alarm to be generated.
Transcoder Module Monitoring
General
Transcoder modules monitor the die temperature of their main components, and report
these temperatures to an accuracy of ±2 ° C. If a transcoder module reports die
temperatures, it allows an alarm threshold to be defined for each temperature, which if
exceeded causes an alarm to be generated.
MPMs
The controlling processor monitors the core temperatures of the main components and
passes this information back to the host card via the back plane for monitoring.
Temperature thresholds can be set to cause a warning or an alarm. The warning level is
configurable by the user, whereas the alarm level is hard coded.
Fans
The fans fitted to the chassis are speed controllable, and are a user configurable parameter

SNTP
Overview
The unit can obtain the current time from a network time server using SNTPv4 (RFC 4330)
and is capable of working with Microsoft Windows Time, (SNTP as defined in RFC 1767).
SNTP Time Server
If an SNTP Time Server is selected, and communications are established with it, then the
unit uses the time obtained to correct the system’s real time clock, and the user cannot set
the clock.
If a time server has been configured, but it fails to respond, then an ‘SNTP Server Failed To
Respond’ alarm is generated.

Troubleshooting - Philosophy
It is the objective of this section is to provide sufficient information to enable the operator to
rectify apparent faults or else to identify the suspect module, where possible. Some basic
procedures are provided to follow in the event of a suspected Encoder failure. It is assumed
that fault-finding has already been performed at a system level and that other equipment
units have been eliminated as the possible cause of the failure (see the relevant System
Manual).
WARNING!
Do not remove the covers of this equipment. Hazardous voltages are present within this
equipment and may be exposed if the covers are removed. Only Ericsson Television trained
and approved service engineers are permitted to service this equipment.
CAUTION!
Do not remove the covers of this equipment. Unauthorised maintenance or the use of nonapproved replacements amy affect the equipment specification and invalidate any
warranties.
This handbook does not include any maintenance information or procedures which would
require the removal of covers.
If the following information fails to clear the abnormal condition, call a Service Engineer or
contact Ericsson Customer Services.
© Ericsson AB 2011. All rights reserved
Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Looking After The Unit > Troubleshooting > Preliminary Checks
Troubleshooting Preliminary Checks
Always investigate the failure symptoms fully, prior to taking remedial action. Fault
diagnosis for the equipment operator is limited to the following tasks, since the operator
should NOT remove the covers of the equipment:
1. Check the front panel alarm/status LED. If this is not lit:
a) Replace the fuse in the power connector at the rear panel (see AC User Accessible Fuse
Replacement).
NOTE:
Only replace the fuse once. If it blows again contact Ericsson Customer
Services.
b) Replace external equipment, power source and cables by substitution to check their
performance.
2. Confirm that the equipment hardware configuration is suitable for the purpose and has
been correctly installed and connected (see Installing the Equipment).
3. Confirm that inappropriate operator action is not causing the problem, and that the
equipment software set-up is capable of performing the task being asked of it. If the validity
of the configuration, set-up or operation is in doubt, check it (seeOperation and Control).
4. Check that the fans are unobstructed and working correctly.
When the failure condition has been fully investigated, and the symptoms are known,
proceed with fault-finding according to the observed symptoms. If the fault persists, and
cannot be rectified using the instructions given in this handbook, contactEricsson Customer
Services. Switch off the equipment if it becomes unusable, or to protect it from further
damage.

Replacement
AC User Accessible Fuse Replacement
The fuse(s) are held in integral fuse carriers in the AC power inlet(s) on the rear panel. In
the case of dual power supply chassiss, there are two fuses.
NOTE:
Refer to Technical Specification > Power Supplies for information about the
fuse.
WARNING!
Before replacing the rear panel fuse, disconnect the unit from the supply. Failure to do so
may expose hazardous voltages. Unplug the unit from the local supply socket.
To replace the AC power fuse:
1. Ensure that power is turned off and the power cable is disconnected from the AC power
inlet.
2. Ease out the fuse carrier by placing a small, flat-bladed screwdriver in the notch at the
top of the carrier.
CAUTION!
When replacing the power input fuse, always ensure that a fuse of the correct type and
rating is fitted. Failure to do so results in inadequate protection.
3. Replace the fuse in the carrier.
4. Insert the fuse carrier back in the AC power inlet.
Position of AC Fuse Carrier
If the replacement fuse also blows, do not continue. Disconnect the equipment and contact
Ericsson Television Limited Limited Customer Servicesfor advice.

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Looking After The Unit > Troubleshooting > Managing Alarms > Alarms
Alarms
The chassis can report any error condition by generating an alarm event. Alarms are
reported on the web page of the chassis, and can also be reported by the generation of
SNMP traps.
Every alarm event type is assigned a severity level, the possible alarm severity levels are:
masked, warning, minor, major, and critical.
If an alarm is masked, the alarm event causes no action.
The highest severity level of any active alarm is indicated by the Alarm LED on the front
panel of the chassis. This is red if there are any active critical alarm, orange if the highest
severity active alarm is major, or green if there are no active alarms, or active alarms or
warnings are masked.
Alarm Levels
The health of the system will be signalled by alarm events. An alarm event can be set to one
of the following possible levels by the operator for each of the cards fitted to the chassis.
Alarm
Front
Panel
Status
LED
Description
Masked
Green
Any change of state of the alarm is logged, but no further
action is taken.
Warning
Amber
Any change of state of the alarm is logged. When active, the
alarm is reported on the Alarm Status menu. An SNMP trap
may optionally be generated for Warnings.
Minor
Amber
Any change of state of the alarm is logged.
When active, the alarm is reported on the Alarm Status menu.
An SNMP trap may optionally be generated for Minor alarms.
Major
Amber
Any change of state of the alarm is logged.
When active, the alarm is reported on the Alarm Status menu.
An SNMP trap is generated.
Critical
Red
Any change of state of the alarm is logged.
When active, the alarm is reported on the Alarm Status menu.
An SNMP trap is generated.
A control system will assume that the associated transcoder
module has failed, and will perform a card level redundancy
switch.
Alarm Treatment
Alarms are associated with either a Transcoder Module or the Host. A Transcoder Module
informs the Host of the alarms that it can generate as part of its capabilitiesxml file. The
Host reads this file when the Transcoder Module is detected.
Alarms are treated as parameters, and are thus stored in the Parameter Store.
If the state of an alarm changes, the source of the alarm, i.e. the Transcoder Module, or the
Host System Manager generates a broadcast message to the systems internal Alarm IP Port
to notify all interested applications of the new state of the alarm. It will also generate a
syslog message so that the event is recorded in the system log file.
Alarm Manager
The Alarm Manager application listens on the Alarm Port, and maintains a history of all
changes of alarm states, which it can provide to the web page manager if the alarm history
is requested to be displayed.
The Alarm Manager also controls the overall alarm state of the chassis. This is used by both
the TTv Health MIB, and the front panel driver. The overall alarm state can be either, no
alarms, warning, or alarm.
SNMP Trap
The SNMP Handler application also listens on the Alarm Port, and if SNMP Trap messages on
alarms have been enabled, it will generate the required trap messages for any change in
alarm states.
The IP address to send SNMP trap messages to can be configured by the operator (see
Operation and Control: SNMP).
The list of currently active alarms can also be accessed via the front panel.

The MPM1 endeavours to self monitor itself for correct operation and correct any
inconsistencies it finds. This includes the resetting of malfunctioning sub-systems or the
whole card if necessary. The module attempts to maintain correct operation to minimise the
effects of faults. All such actions are reported through the alarms/status/logging back to the
host card.
Module Responses
The Host card monitors all responses back from the module and resets the module if
appropriate. This includes initiating redundancy switches if this results in limiting the error
period. All actions are logged by the Host card.
Manual Response to Alarms
Certain alarm conditions will require manual intervention from the user. This may
occasionally mean the need to know which MPM1 encoder card is performing the transcode
of any particular service.
To assist the user, the Ericsson SPR1100 has a Configuration Report page. This allows the
user to see the mapping of services to cards.

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Looking After The Unit > Troubleshooting > Log Files
Log Files
Overview
The unit stores a log of events such as power-on, alarm assertion and de-assertion etc.
Every event in the log has a UTC time and date stamp attached to it to a resolution of 1
second.
Log Operation
The event log is stored on the Host Controller Card (HCC). A log file is generated with a file
format as defined by RFC3164. Once the log has filled the space allocated to it, the oldest
entries in the log file are over-written.
Events that are logged include power-on, power on self test (POST) results, warning and
alarm assertions and de-assertions, user log ins and log outs. Each event has a UTC time
and date stamp appended to it, with a time resolution of one second.
The various system log files are accessible from the web pages. The system log can be
exported as a comma separated list, so that it is easy to import it in to a spreadsheet,
where it can be easily filtered or sorted.
Time and Date
Any changes to the time and date are recorded in the system log.

A Brief Introduction to Audio Coding Standards
Where appropriate, the output transport stream can be made compliant with ATSC A53(E)
ATSC Digital Television Standard and DVB 101-154 v1.7.7.
MPEG
The Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) was formed in 1988 to generate compression
techniques for audio and video. In the first version, ISO/IEC 11172-3 MPEG-1 audio, has a
selection of two separate algorithms. MPEG-1 Layer I and II were implementations of the
MUSICAM algorithm and MPEG-1 Layer III (mp3) was an implementation of the ASPEC
algorithm. The algorithms have since been improved and extended with other versions of
MPEG.
MPEG-1 Layer I/II
This algorithm is similar to MUSICAM and only really differs in the structure of the frame
headers. Layer I is a restricted version of the full algorithm to allow a reduced decoder to be
developed. Hence, over time as the processing power of decoders have increased by orders
of magnitude, Layer I is no longer used for broadcast.
The algorithm creates 3 frames of 384 samples. Each small frame is divided into subbands
and these subbands can be coded for each frame or for all 3. There is limited ability to
allocate bits to different bands and there is no entropy coding of the encoded samples so a
relatively high bit rate is required to obtain a reasonable quality.
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is an algorithm from Dolby that forms part of both the ATSC and DVB standard
for digital broadcasting. It is marketed under the name of Dolby Digital.
The encoder includes a psychoacoustic model to improve the quality. The signal is divided
into 32 multiple subbands, which correspond to the critical bands of the human ear. The
number of bits is fixed for each subband but there are additional bits that can be allocated
to any subband where encoding quality has suffered. Dolby recommends stereo signals may
be coded at 192 kbit/s, and 5.1 at 448 kbit/s, but other rates can be used if required.
The encoders have the ability to encode stereo and equivalent modes, and will also pass
through pre-compressed Dolby Digital (both stereo and multi-channel).
When in Dolby Digital Pass-through mode, glitch suppression is supported, where the
coding module monitors the encoded bitstream and if the framing structure is incorrect, a
valid silence frame or the last good frame is inserted in its place. If this state occurs for
more than a second, the encoder signals that the Dolby Digital bitstream is corrupted.
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby Digital Plus offers enhanced performance over Dolby Digital. Some of the algorithm
improvements are:
Transient pre-noise processing - to reduce "pre-noise" artifacts before sharp transients.
Enhanced channel coupling – which maintains phase relationships between channels, and
improves performance of matrix decoders.
Adaptive hybrid transform processing – an improved bit allocation and quantization
algorithm
SMPTE 302M: Mapping of AES3 Data into an MPEG-2 Transport
Stream
Though not specifically a coding standard, this does define a method of carrying AES3
uncompressed audio streams in an MPEG-2 transport stream. The AES stream can contain
non-audio data as well as uncompressed audio. This mechanism can be used to carry
Linear PCM audio, or Dolby E data.
Dolby E
Dolby E was developed by Dolby Laboratories. It allows up to 8 channels of Dolby E
compressed audio to be distributed over an existing 2 channel digital infrastructure. The
compression applied is less than that for consumer codecs (i.e. Dolby Digital), so is better
quality and the audio can be decompressed and re-compressed several times. The Dolby E
stream can also include metadata and timecode.
Dolby E frame duration is either equal to or double the duration of a video frame. For
interlaced formats the duration matches a video frame, but is double the frame duration for
progressive formats. This facilitates easier editing of video and audio in the digital domain.
Dolby E frames are generally aligned to video frames.

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Appendices > Dolby Metadata Presets
Dolby Metadata Presets
Eight Dolby Metadata Presets can be configured.
By default, presets 1 - 4 have the same configuration recommended by Ericsson.
Presets 5 - 8 are by default configured to the Dolby defaults for "Stereo Film", "Stereo
Music", "Surround Film" and "Surround Music" respectively.
To configure the presets, please navigate through the GUI as follows :System Tab -> Slots -> Slot 1 -> Audio Module -> Dolby Metadata Presets
Then select the desired preset number.
Note:
Navigating away from the main Services Configuration page will lose any
changes that have not yet been saved/applied.
All of the parameters in the presets can changed to the users requirements. Any of these
presets can then be applied to any audio channel encoding audio in the Dolby Digital format.

Removing the DC component can lead to more efficient encoding,
but there is a risk that signals that do not reach 100% PCM may
exceed this after filtering and therefore must be clipped.
Bandwidth low-pass

Physical Handling
WARNING!
CARE MUST BE TAKEN IN INSERTING OR WITHDRAWING ANY OPTION CARD.
UNDERSIDE COMPONENTS MAY BE PHYSICALLY DAMAGED BY CARELESS HANDLING.
Cards must be inserted and withdrawn slowly whilst ensuring that the card is kept
orthogonal (at 90 degrees to the rear of the unit):
WARNING!
OPTION CARDS SHOULD NOT BE PLUGGED IN WITH EXCESSIVE FORCE.
IF ANY SIGNIFICANT RESISTANCE TO INSERTING A CARD IS FELT, THE OPERATOR
SHOULD WITHDRAW THE CARD SLIGHTLY AND CHECK FOR ANY OBSTRUCTIONS.
Electrostatic Discharge
WARNING!
Static electricity can damage electronic components. To avoid damage, keep option cards in
their static-protective package until you are ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following precautions:
Where possible ensure that antistatic protection is worn by the user (for example an
earthed antistatic wrist strap, an ankle or heel strap).
Handle the Option Card carefully, holding it by its edges or its rear panel.
Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
Do not leave the Option Card where others can handle and possibly damage it.
While the Option Card is still in its anti-static package, touch it to an unpainted
metal part of the system unit for at least two seconds. (This drains static electricity
from the package and from your body.)
Remove the Option Card from its package and install it directly into your base
chassis without setting it down. If it is necessary to set the Option Card down, place
it in its static-protective package.
Take additional care when handling components during cold weather, because
heating reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Adding an Option Card
Overview
A new card can be inserted when the chassis is off or on.
Once inserted and powered the chassis will determine the option card capabilities
and make it available for configuration.
- Initially a default set of parameters will be in place.
As long as there are licenses available for the features required, the option card can
then be configured and used immediately.
WARNING!
Refer to "HANDLING OPTION CARDS" to miniise risk of damage to option cards or base
chasis.
Procedure
An option card can be added to a unit with the base chassis either powered or un-powered.
The procedure is as follows:
1. Remove the blanking plate from the option card slot in which the new card is to be fitted.
2. Carefully remove the new option card from its anti-static package, and insert it in to the
base chassis, slotting the card edges in to the card guides.
3. Push the card home, so that the rear panel is flush with the rear of the base chassis.
4. Tighten the two captive retaining screws.
5. Connect any external cables to the new option card.
6. When the chassis detects a new card fitted, it will be displayed on the option slots web
page, and an alarm will be raised. If all options are reported correctly, the “accept option
slot configuration” needs to be applied. This will accept the new hardware configuration
and clear the alarm.

Removing an Option Card
WARNING!
Refer to "HANDLING OPTION CARDS" to minimise risk of damage to option cards or base
chasis.
An option card can be removed, and does not need to be replaced.
1. Disconnect any cables from the option card to be replaced.
2. Loosen the two captive screws that retain the option card in the base chassis.
3. Holding the captive screws, pull the option card from the unit and place it in suitable
anti-static packaging, (observe the handling precautions).
4. Fit a blanking panel in place of the removed option card.
5. When the unit detects a card is no longer present, it will be displayed on the option
slots web page, and an alarm will be raised. If all options are reported correctly, the
“accept option slot configuration” needs to be applied. This will accept the new
hardware configuration and clear the alarm.

Replacing an Option Card
A failed option card can be replaced without powering down the base chassis, i.e. can be
‘hot-swapped’.
1.
To perform a hot-swap the option cards should only be unplugged or inserted when the
chassis is fully booted and configured.
2.
Only ONE option card should be plugged in at a time, to prevent problems due to inrush
current, and to ensure that the host recognises and configures the new card.
3.
If more than one option card is being fitted, a wait time of approximately 10s should be
allowed between inserting each option card.
WARNING!
Refer to "HANDLING OPTION CARDS" to minimise risk of damage to option cards or base
chasis.
The process to replace an option card is as follows:
1. Disconnect any cables from the option card to be replaced.
2. Loosen the two captive screws that retain the option card in the base chassis.
3. Holding the captive screws, pull the option card from the unit, (observe the handling
precautions).
4. Carefully remove the replacement option card from its anti-static package, and insert
it in to the base chassis, slotting the card edges in to the card guides.
5. Push the card home, so that the rear panel is flush with the rear of the base chassis.
6. Tighten the two captive retaining screws.
7. Connect any external cables to the replacement option card.
NOTE:
If the replacement card is of the same type as the failed card, then it will be
automatically configured to the same settings as the failed card.
If the replacement card is of a different type then an alarm will be generated.

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Appendices > Option Cards > Option Card Hot Swap
Option Card Hot Swap
The unit regularly monitors to verify option card presence and to detect if a card has been
removed or added.
When a new card is inserted it will start-up and attempt to link to the host controller. When
this link has been established the process of identifying the card and its capabilities begins.
Once this is established, the card will be configured with the same configuration as the card
that has been replaced (assuming that the replacement card has the same capabilities).

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Appendices > Option Cards > Option Card Plug and Play
Transcoder Module Plug and Play
The unit is designed around a ‘Plug and Play’ concept to make it as easy as possible to add
new transcoder modules and functionality. This means that the chassis and Host controller
card provide a base level of functionality, while any specific functionality associated with a
transcoder module is contained on the transcoder module itself.
A good example of this is MPEG SI generation. The Host controller provides the functionality
to generate and play out the SI required by a transport stream. However a MPM is required
to provide any descriptors required for any elementary stream types that it generates.

Materials Declarations
Ericsson products are designed and manufactured in keeping with good environmental
practise. Our component and materials selection policy prohibits the use of a range of
potentially hazardous materials. In addition, we comply with relevant environmental
legislation.
For the European Union
For product sold into the EU after 1st July 2006, we comply with the EU RoHS Directive. We
also comply with the WEEE Directive.
For China
For product sold into China after 1st March 2007, we comply with the “Administrative
Measure on the Control of Pollution by Electronic Information Products”. In the first stage of
this legislation, content of six hazardous materials has to be declared together with a
statement of the “Environmentally Friendly Use Period (EFUP)”: the time the product can be
used in normal service life without leaking the hazardous materials. Ericsson expects the
normal use environment to be in an equipment room at controlled temperatures (around
22°C) with moderate humidity (around 60%) and clean air, near sea level, not subject to
vibration or shock.
Where Ericsson product contains potentially hazardous materials, this is indicated on the
product by the appropriate symbol containing the EFUP. For Ericsson products, the
hazardous material content is limited to lead (Pb) in some solders. This is extremely stable
in normal use and the EFUP is taken as 50 years, by comparison with the EFUP given for
Digital Exchange/Switching Platform in equipment in Appendix A of “General Rule of
Environment-Friendly Use Period of Electronic Information Products”. This is indicated by
the product marking:
It is assumed that while the product is in normal use, any batteries associated with realtime clocks or battery-backed RAM will be replaced at the regular intervals.
The EFUP relates only to the environmental impact of the product in normal use, it does not
imply that the product will continue to be supported for 50 years.

Real Time Clock
Overview
The Host Controller card has a real time clock, which is battery powered when the chassis is
unpowered, so that the time and date is maintained. This clock is designed to be accurate to
±1 minute per month. The battery is capable of powering the clock for over two years.
User Configurable Parameters

SNTP Server
An SNTP server can be configured to update the clock and calendar or else the user can
update the time and date. Any changes to the time and date are recorded in the system log.
The real time clock is used to set the time and date when the unit is started, but then its
own time and date is maintained, unless a change to the time and date parameters occur,
when it will be updated to the new settings.
The system can set or correct its system clock from information received from an SNTP
Time Server. More specifically it supports SNTP V4 and also Microsoft Windows Time
(W32Time), which means that it supports NTP V3.
The user can enter the IP address of the SNTP server to be used, the default address is
000.000.000.000, which indicates to the system that no SNTP server has been defined,
and therefore SNTP is disabled.
If an SNTP server is defined, and it fails to respond, then an SNTP Server Timeout alarm
will be raised. This alarm will be de-asserted either when an SNTP response is received, or
the SNTP functionality is disabled.

Control Network Redundancy
Overview
The control network is assigned to the physical Ethernet ports Ctrl1 and Ctrl2. The lower
number port of the pair is considered to be the primary port, and the other the spare.
Operation
If both ports have a link up, and the Control Port Selection is set toAutomatic
Redundant, then the primary port will respond to network traffic, but the spare port will
not.
However, if the link goes down on the primary port, then the spare port will start to respond
to network traffic.
Automatic Redundancy Mode
In automatic redundancy mode the primary port is used as default. If the primary port
link fails, control passes to the secondary port. However, if the primary port link is restored
then control passes back to the primary after the Auto-Revert delay period.
The behavior of the system when the primary link is re-established depends on the Control
Port Auto-Revert Time setting.
If the Control Port Auto-Revert Time is set to 0, then the spare port remains the active
control port until its link goes down.
Otherwise, after the primary port has had a link present for the defined period of time, it will
resume being the active control port, and the spare port will cease responding to network
traffic.

Home > SPR1100 Handbook > Appendices > Redundancy Modes > Control Network Redundancy > Auto Revert
Mode
Auto Revert Delay
If the control port selection = Automatic, then the Auto-Revert Delay defines the period for
which the primary port must have resumed a link up state before it automatically becomes
the active port.
The Auto-Revert Delay period is set in the range 0 to 999 seconds, with 2 seconds being the
default value.
If this is set to 0 then there is no automatic switch back to the primary port

Data Network Redundancy
Redundancy
The Ericsson SPR1100 has two Ethernet data ports operating as paired outputs. These are
designated Ge3 and Ge4.
Each port may have a different IP address, MAC address, subnet mask and default gateway,
providing output network redundancy. Only one port is active at any time, with the other
port in "standby" mode. If the "active" interface should fail, the "standby" interface takes
over.
If both ports are configured to be on the same subnet, only one port will respond to ICMP
messages.
The data ports can raise an alarm during abnormal operational conditions, (see Looking
After the Unit > Troubleshooting > Handling Alarms > Alarms - Data Port).

1 + 1 Redundancy Introduction
Overview
1 + 1 Redundancy allows a second unit to be configured as a redundant spare. A 1 + 1
Redundancy Group consists of a "Primary" unit and a "Secondary" unit. The configuration
settings of each unit is automatically replicated to its peer. Each unit is expected to be
connected to the same input and output networks. Each unit will be performing the same
transcodes, however only one unit will be "Active", meaning only one unit will be outputting
multicast packets.
Terminology
Primary
The main unit within a 1 + 1 Redundancy group. This
unit is normally expected to be Active (broadcasting).
Secondary
The backup unit within a 1 + 1 Redundancy group. This
unit is normally expected to be Passive (not
broadcasting), but will go Active (start broadcasting) if
the Primary unit fails.
Standalone
The "Primary" unit can also operate in a Standalone
role. In this case the Primary will always be Active.
Active
The Active unit is the one that is currently broadcasting.
There will normally be exactly one Active unit (although
both units can become active under certain
circumstances). In this case, the MGP protocol should
suppress once of the units output.
Passive
The Passive unit is the unit that is performing
transcodes, but not broadcasting. The unit is in a state
where it is ready to take over broadcasting.
Pairing
Pairing is the process of the units in the redundancy group checking that the configuration
forms a valid redundancy group, synchronising state and configuration. On entering the
paring process a unit signals to its peer to also enter the paring process. The following are
checked:
The role of both units (the roles must be "Primary" or "Secondary" and must not be
the same on both units).
The IP address that the peer has configured for "Peer IP Address". For a valid
configuration the "Peer IP Address" setting on the other unit should refer to this unit's
control IP address.
Hardware configuration and software version numbers are also compared. If these do not
match an alarm is raised, although the units continue to pair.
If during the pairing process the peer unit cannot be successfully pinged for 30 seconds,
then it is assumed that the peer is not available. In this case the unit will become Active.
Once a successful configuration has been established, the Active unit will be determined. For
this the current Active state and the previous Active state are used. If the unit has just been
powered up, the current active state will be Passive.
If one of the units is Active and the other is Passive then the Active unit remains Active
and the Passive unit remains Passive. The configuration of the Active unit is copied to
the Passive unit.
If both of the units are Active then the "Conflicting Status" alarm is raised, and both
units remain Active. A "Configuration Mismatch" alarm is also raised to indicate that
the configuration of the 2 units could not be synchronised automatically.
If both of the units are Passive then the previous state is examined.
If one unit was previously Active and the other unit was previously Passive, then
the previously Active unit becomes Active, the previously Passive unit remains
Passive, and the configuration is copied from the previously Active unit to the
previously Passive unit.
If both units were previously Active or both units were previously Passive, then
the "Conflicting Status" alarm is raised, and both units remain Passive. A
"Configuration Mismatch" alarm is also raised to indicate that the configuration of
the 2 units could not be synchronised automatically.
Automatic Redundancy Switching
Under certain circumstances an automatic redundancy switch will take place. Normally
automatic redundancy switches will only occur if the Primary unit is Active (i.e. there is no
auto-revert back from Secondary the Primary). The exception to this is when the timed
license on the Secondary unit expires.
When the Primary is Active an automatic redundancy switch will occur when:
A critical alarm is present on the Primary and no critical alarm is present on the
Secondary for more than the time specified by "Alarm Primary to Secondary Delay"
The Secondary is unable to ping the Primary for more than the time specified by "Ping
Primary to Secondary Delay"
When the Secondary is Active an automatic redundancy switch will occur when:
The Secondary timed license expires
Configuration Synchronisation
When configuration changes are made to one unit in a redundancy group they are
automatically replicated to the other unit. The GUI of the other unit should be reloaded to
see any changes made. This occurs for most parameters, although a few so called "Box
Parameters" are unique to a unit and are not replicated. Examples of parameters that are
not replicated are IP address settings and 1 + 1 Redundancy configuration settings.
It is recommended that the Primary unit web GUI is used the majority of the time, with the
Secondary unit web GUI only used to configure settings unique to the Secondary unit. This
includes using the Secondary unit web GUI to configure the 1 + 1 Redundancy settings.
If a configuration change cannot be replicated on the peer (e.g. due to control network
failure), then a "Configuration Mismatch" alarm will be raised on the unit on which the
change was made. Once the network problem has been rectified, a manual configuration
copy should be performed so that both units are correctly configured.
ICMP and RPC Ping
There are 2 levels of network ping that are used to determine whether the peer device can
be contacted. Firstly, ICMP ping is used to determine whether low level network
communication can be achieved. The second level is RPC ping, where an RPC is executed on
the peer. This gives a higher level of confidence that the peer is operating correctly than the
ICMP ping.
The current ping result is shown on the 1 + 1 Redundancy GUI. It is also used to determine
when certain configuration and status information can be pushed to or retrieved from the
peer. Ping failure could indicate that the peer has failed, so is also used to trigger an
automatic redundancy switch.
Manual Controls
There are a number of manual controls available. These allow configurations to be copied
between units and also allow manual redundancy switches between Primary and Secondary
units. The manual control are intended to be used to resolve conflicts (e.g. configuration
changes that were made when the control network connection was lost, or to allow the user
to select the active unit in case the pairing process cannot). The manual control is the only
way to switch from Secondary to Primary unit (the exception to this is that if the Secondary
license expires and automatic revert to the primary is attempted).
Secondary Timed License
A Secondary unit should be delivered with a 30 day timed license. This license is split into 2
sections, a 3 day temporary section and a 27 day permanent section. The 3 day section is
used first and will be reset when the Secondary unit goes Passive. The 27 day section is
remembered and does not get reset when the Secondary goes Passive. This mechanism
allows the Secondary unit to be used multiple times for up to 3 days each time without any
permanent license erosion. If the secondary is used for more than 3 days then the
permanent license will be eroded.
If this value reaches 0, then the multicast output of the Secondary will be disabled and an
automatic revert to the Primary will be attempted. In this case contact support to renew
your Secondary timed license.
An alarm will be raised when there are less than 7 days of timed license remaining. Another
alarm will be raised when the license expires.
Multicast Guard Protocol (MGP)
If both units become Active, they will both be broadcasting the same multicast to the
downstream equipment. This can happen if the control connection between the units is lost
(the Secondary thinks the Primary has failed, so goes Active). To prevent this the MGP
protection mechanism should be employed. It is recommended that MGP is always enabled
when 1 + 1 Redundancy is in use to protect against this scenario.
MGP will prevent one unit broadcasting when another MGP enabled unit is already
broadcasting on the same multicast. In the scenario outlined above, MGP will prevent the
Secondary broadcasting. The 1 + 1 Redundancy state of the Secondary will still be Active,
however the multicast output is suppressed.

1 + 1 Redundancy Configuration
Overview
The 1 + 1 Redundancy configuration GUI allows configuration and control of a 1 + 1
Redundancy group. It can be accessed by opening the web GUI, selecting "Configure",
selecting "System", then selecting "Standalone 1 + 1 Redundancy"
The GUI comprises of the following:
Standard Buttons ("Back", "Up", "Refresh", "Apply Changes")
Actions Buttons ("Manual Configuration Copy" x 2, "Set Primary Active", "Set
Secondary Active")
"1 + 1 Redundancy" Configuration Settings
"Primary Device" Status
"Secondary Device" Status
Standard Buttons
These behave as elsewhere in the GUI.
Action Buttons
Action buttons fall into 2 categories.
Manual configuration copy buttons perform a copy of all configuration settings from
one unit to another unit. Any configurations on the unit that is being copied to will be
overwritten and permanently lost. Box specific parameters, such as IP addresses and 1
+ 1 Redundancy configuration settings are not copied. Care should always be taken to
ensure that the copy is performed in the correct direction. It may be worthwhile using
the "Save Configuration to File" option on the "Save-Load" configuration tab to make a
backup copy of the settings of both units before using this feature.
"Set Primary Active" and "Set Secondary Active" buttons will set the relevant unit into
the "Active" state, meaning it will try to broadcast. The other unit will be set to
"Passive".
"1 + 1 Redundancy" Configuration Settings
These settings configure the 1 + 1 Redundancy group.
The "Device Role" setting can be either "Standalone", "Primary" or "Secondary". Depending
on the type of the unit a subset of these options will be available. On a Primary unit,
"Standalone" and "Primary" are available. On a Secondary unit, this setting is fixed to
"Secondary". A "Standalone" unit is not operating as part of a redundancy group. It will not
push configuration to a peer. It will always be Active. "Primary" and "Secondary" units will
attempt to join a 1 + 1 redundancy group.
The "Peer IP Address" setting should be set to the control IP address of the peer unit in this
redundancy group. On the peer unit this field should hold the control IP address of this unit.
The "ICMP Ping Period" and "RPC Ping Period" settings allow the time between consecutive
pings to be altered.
The "Availability" setting allows the operator to declare that a unit is not available as part of
the 1 + 1 redundancy group. This raises a critical alarm, which prevents the 1 + 1
Redundancy system from automatically switching to that unit.
On a Secondary device there are 2 additional settings. These are "Alarm Primary to
Secondary Delay" and "Ping Primary to Secondary Delay". These settings specify the delay
when performing a redundancy switch. A redundancy switch will result in a few seconds
disruption to the outputs. At least 5 seconds delay is recommended to avoid switching on
spurious trigger conditions, although smaller number can be used.
"Primary Device" Status and "Secondary Device" Status
These areas show status information relating to each of the devices in the 1 + 1
Redundancy group. Most of the fields are self-explanatory.
NOTE:
The last update time can be set by either unit. If the clocks of the 2 units are
not synchronised this could cause a time difference to show in this information.
It is recommended that an SNTP server is used to synchronise the clocks on
the 2 units.

Secondary
Adding a Secondary to an existing Standalone
configuration
Overview
This page describes the process that should be followed to add a Secondary backup unit to
an existing Standalone system.
1. Create a backup of the Primary configuration settings just in case anything goes
wrong. This can be done by clicking on "Configure", then "Save-Load", then right click
on the link to save the configuration.
2. Ensure that the secondary is disconnected from the network, and apply power to the
secondary unit.
3. Configure the control IP address for the secondary unit using the front panel.
4. Connect the secondary to the control network. Do not connect the data networks at
this point.
5. Open the web GUI for the Secondary unit and configure the remaining network
settings (control, data input and data output).
6. On the Secondary web GUI click "Configure", then "System", then "Standalone 1 + 1
Redundancy". Enter the control IP address of the Primary in the "Peer IP Address"
setting and click "Apply Changes", then OK on the popup dialog.
7. Open the web GUI for the Primary unit and click "Configure", then "System", then
"Standalone 1 + 1 Redundancy". Enter the control IP address of the Secondary in the
"Peer IP Address" setting, select "Primary" as the "Device Role" and click "Apply
Changes", then OK on the popup dialog.
8. On the Primary unit web GUI click "Set Primary Active", then OK on the popup dialog.
9. On the Primary unit web GUI click "Manual Configuration Copy From Primary to
Secondary" (ensure you click the correct button!), then OK on the popup dialog.
10. On the Primary unit web GUI click "Configure", then "System", then "MGP Support".
Set "MGP Mode" to "On", click "Apply Changes", then OK on the popup dialog.
11. Wait for 60 seconds for the units to stabilise.
12. As a final check, click on the "Configure" on the Secondary web GUI. The services
configuration will be displayed. Compare this with the services configuration of the
primary and make sure they are the same.
13. Connect the data networks to the Secondary unit.

1 + 1 Redundancy Hints and Tips
This page provides a few hints and tips for using 1 + 1 redundancy.
Enable MGP
It is possible for the 1 + 1 Redundancy system to have both units Active. This can happen if
the control connection between the units fails. In this case the secondary thinks the primary
has failed, and becomes Active. This could cause duplicate multicast packets on the output
data network. To prevent this it is recommended that MGP is always enabled in a 1 + 1
Redundancy system.
To enable MGP, open the web GUI and click "Configure", then "System", then "MGP
Support". Set "MGP Mode" to "On", click "Apply Changes", then OK on the popup dialog.
Use SNTP to Synchronise Time
It is recommended that SNTP is used to ensure that the system clock on each unit reports
the same time. This can be configured from the web GUI by clicking "Configure" then
"Device Info" and setting the "SNTP Server" setting.
Beware of changing the "Device State (setmode)"
When a redundancy switch is performed (either manual or automatic), the "Device State
(setmode)" may be changed, overriding any manual change to this configuration.
If you need to manually adjust this setting it is recommended that you set the 1 + 1
Redundancy "Availability" setting to "Unavailable" on both units prior to making any change.
This will prevent the 1 + 1 Redundancy system from performing an automatic redundancy
switch.
Power down unused secondaries
If a Secondary unit is not being used, but is connected to power it will attempt to contact its
peer. After 30 seconds of not being able to, it will go Active. At this point the 30 day timed
license will start being consumed. If the unit is left in this state for 30 days, it will be
rendered useless until the license is renewed. For this reason a secondary unit that is not
being used should be disconnected from the power supply.
Resolving "Configuration Mismatch" alarm
The configuration mismatch alarm indicates that the configuration on the 2 units may not be
identical. This alarm is triggered if a configuration change is made on one unit whilst the
other unit is not contactable. It is also triggered if the pairing process is unable to work out
which unit should be Active. In this situation the user should manually decide which unit has
the most up to date configuration. The "Last Updated" value may be useful to determine
this, however since communication was lost, this may not reflect the correct value for the
other unit. You should check the Primary "Last Updated" time using the Primary web GUI
and the Secondary "Last Updated" time on the Secondary web GUI.
Once you have decided which unit has the correct configuration, you should use the
corresponding button on the GUI to copy the configuration from that unit to the other unit.
This will clear the alarm.
Resolving "Conflicting Status" alarm
This alarm indicates that the pairing process was not able to determine which unit should be
active and which unit should be passive. When this alarm is raised either both units will be
Active or both units will be Passive.
Firstly you should resolve the "Configuration Mismatch" alarm (this will always accompany
the "Conflicting Status" alarm).
If both units are Passive:
if are no problems with the Primary unit, you should use the web GUI to make the
Primary unit active
else use the web GUI to make the Secondary unit active. Repair the Primary and
switch back to is as soon as possible.
If both units are Active, and assuming that you have MGP enabled, MGP will decide which
unit is actually broadcasting and suppress the data output of the other unit. You should
determine which unit is actually broadcasting and make that the Active unit. To do this,
open the web GUI for each unit (in separate browser tabs/windows) and click "Configure",
then "System", then "MGP Support" on each web GUI. Observe the value of "Unit Level MGP
State" on each unit. One of the units will show "R1 On air". Use the web GUI to make this
unit the Active unit. If you have just made the Secondary the Active unit, you should switch
back to the Primary when it will cause the least disruption to your broadcasting services.
License Remaining is Rounded Up
The reported value for "License Remaining" is rounded up when displayed in the GUI. When
the value reported shows 1 day you have between 0 and 24 hours until the license expires.
The Secondary unit will go offline immediately when the value reaches zero.

IP Encapsulation of Transport Streams
Mapping of MPEG-2 TS Packets
The mapping of MPEG-2 TS packets into IP data frames is done according to the protocol
stack shown in the following illustration.
MPEG Layer
The MPEG-2/DVB layer is specified in ISO/IEC IS 13818 “Generic Coding of Moving Pictures
and Associated Audio”. The main functionality of this layer is to transform MPTS (MultiProgram Transport Streams) into a number of SPTS (Single-Program Transport Streams). A
transport stream carrying multiple programs is in this way split into a number of ‘mini’
transport streams, each carrying a single program. This ensures that the video can be
passed through limited bandwidth links such as ADSL further down the transmission path.
RTP Layer
The RTP layer is optional, and will add an 8-byte RTP header to the new packet. This header
contains a sequence number and a time stamp.
UDP Layer
The UDP layer is according to RFC768 “User Datagram Protocol”. The user can control the
target UDP port number for the MPEG-2 stream. A configurable number of 188-byte long
MPEG-2 TS packets are mapped straight into an UDP frame with no additional overhead.
The MTU for Ethernet is usually 1500 bytes. This limits the number of MPEG-2 TS packets
per UDP frame to lie within 1 to 7. The following illustration shows the mapping of MPEG-2
transport streams into UDP packets.
IP Layer
The IP layer is according to RFC791 “Internet Protocol Specification”. The user is allowed
access to the following IP header fields: IP source address, IP destination address, Time-ToLive field, Type-Of-Service field. Performing static mapping between class-D IP addresses
and the corresponding Ethernet multicast MAC addresses supports limited IP Multicasting
(Type 1).
Ethernet Layer
The data link layer is Ethernet according to IEEE 802.3/802.3u (auto sensing 10/100 Mbps,
Twisted Pair, RJ-45 connector).
IP Overhead
The IP overhead calculation when mapping MPEG-2 TS packets into IP frames is shown in
the following table.
Overhead factor
MPEG-2 TS
1.0
Comments
Overhead factor
Comments
UDP
1324/1316 = 1.006
UDP header=8 bytes
IP
1344/1324 = 1.015
IP header=20 bytes
Ethernet
1358/1344 = 1.010
Eth header=14 bytes
Total overhead factor becomes: 1.006 x 1.015 x 1.010 = 1.031 or 3.1% overhead.
NOTE:
The number of MPEG-2 TS packets one can map down into each UDP frame is
variable (between 1 and 7). Usually 7 is used for minimum overhead. This is
also used in the above calculation.
