1.1 Description of reload and initial load directory
For description, see operational directions forSTART OF PABX.
The existing system is required to have an initial load directory that will be used to load the addedLIM.When the activity addition of LIM is taking place the exchange data must not be changed in thesystem. This is applicable from the time when the initial load directory has been created to the timewhen the new LIM has been started.Necessary exchange data should be known, i.e. the LIM disposition table for every LIM, number of LIMs, extension data, route data, abbreviated numbers, which LIM is defined as the master LIM, etc.Furthermore, all installations and all prevailing equipment should be completed.If the added LIM is to be equipped with a duplicated control system, it is advisable to add theduplicated control system after the LIM has been added and dumped with a single control system.The activity should be performed during low-traffic.It should be noted that the size of the inter LIM signal packets is determined by the hardware(GJUG, GJUL, LSU, DSU, and LIM backplane) configuration of each signalling path. If a system isequipped with new revision level R-state of HW which supports 2 Mbit/s signalling, the system (orsignalling paths in the system) will have 90 bytes for inter LIM signal packet size. This means thatthe system performance will be degraded if added LIM cannot support 2 Mbit/s signalling.One way to find out if the system (or path) has 2 Mbit signalling is to read out the inter LIM signalpacket length by the commandILSSP. If the existing system supports 2 Mbit/s signalling, thenewly added LIM should also be equipped with the same revision level of the hardware.
A form for exchange data and LPU display for fault locating.I/O board includes NIU2 or NIU.
A standard bus on the I/O board. Typically the storage device is connected to theI/O bus.
The LIM that provides the system backup functionality.
A port on the I/O board. The I/O port includes V.24 and Ethernet ports. The I/Odevices such as terminal, modem, and other computers are connected to the I/Oport.
A hard disk unit or compact flash.Page 2of 11Addition of LIM11/5/2010file://D:\Alex\Alex_tmp\ALEX_TMP\1002\alex0342.htm
