Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 5 -

SFP internal temperature

E1 Failure detection and AIS insertion to TU-12 header Wrong E1 frames (or those with alarm indication) must be AIS indicated and AIS is inserted to the corresponding TU-12 header in STM-1 frame when the E1 frames are handed off over STM-1 interface to SDH network.

n x 64kbps grooming to E1 o n x 64kbps timeslots from multiple E1 CES services are groomed to one E1 interface on the mainboard, and E1 on the mainboard is de-groomed to multiple E1 CES services.

"Tagged" Mapping Rule o o A mapping rule that can map all the "tagged" frames to an Ethernet service

Dynamic addition/deletion/change of mapping rules Adding or deleting or changing the mapping rules configured on an UNI without traffic hit

Hitless addition/removal of port for E-LAN service Per-service Bandwidth Profile o o Bandwidth profile is applied to an Ethernet service with multiple mapping rules.

Remote UNI Port Shutdown When the local UNI of a port-mapping E-Line fails, the remote UNI of the E-Line service can be brought down if it is the only service on that UNI port.

Security Enhancements Working and protection path of CESoP linear protection and G.8031 protection can be on one NNI port (before they must be on two different NNI ports of the system) Removal of CVLAN range limitation (1-50)

4. Operation Considerations and Hints


4.1. License Management
Software licenses are managed by a web-based tool called CLicS. Operators need to log into CLicS via the following URL and generate licenses according to the equipment serial number. CLicS URL: https://online.portal.nokiasiemensnetworks.com

4.2. Security Software Package


All the licensed software features except the security features are embedded in the basic software packages and license is required in order to activate the feature. Security features are not in the basic software package but in a separate software package (product number T555800SE.20 for security package on e-media, and T555800SC.20 for security package on CDROM). If security software package on e-media is ordered, it can be downloaded from the software list of FPH800 on NOLS. Note that security software license is required in any case to activate the security features.

4.3. OOB Interface


A local terminal can be directly connected to the OOB interface of the IDU with the IP address 192.168.254.100/24. This IP address is not configurable.

4.4. Public IP Address of DCN Interface


DCN Port System IP address is user-configurable via WebLCT. Default IP address: 192.168.255.100/24 The management VLAN ID must be set (permitted values 51 ~ 4094) in order to use In-Band Management. Default management VLAN ID is 127.
G.8031 and Ethernet OAM License

It is important to note that G.8031 requires Ethernet OAM license to be installed because G.8031 detects the failure on the working path and triggers switchover by using Ethernet OAM tools.

4.5. The Number of Services


A limited number of services, T1/E1 CESoP and Ethernet, are supported with and without linear protection and their numbers can be calculated by the following formula.

Total Number of T1/E1 CESoP Services:


Unprotected CESoP * 2 + protected CESoP * 4 <= (58 * 4) AND The total number of E1's is no more than 111.

Total Number of Ethernet Services:


Unprotected E_LAN + Unprotected E_Line + Protected E_Line * 2 <= (256-14) Note 1: unprotected and protected refer to Linear Protection only (CES and Ethernet G.8031) Note 2: The system resources are partitioned for CES and Ethernet services, so the number of CES is independent from the number of Ethernet services.

4.6. Service VLAN ID Range for E-LAN and E-Line Service


E-LAN Service and E-LINE Service need to use value 51~4094 for Service VLAN Tag. WebLCT can be used to create E-LAN and E-Line service.

4.7. Network with Loops Must Run STP (Spanning Tree Protocol)
Ref. FR_0000012505 Network with loops but not running STP may cause Management unreachable and services interrupted Description: Network with loops but not running STP will make ODU MAC table confused and thus Ethernet and CES service may be interrupted and Management VLAN unreachable. It is mandatory to run STP over the network with loops.

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 7 -

4.8. CES over Ethernet Service


CES Service (both CESoP and SAToP) needs to use either an E-LAN or an E-Line service as the underlying transmit vehicle (a.k.a. pseudo-wire or PW). So when setting up a CES service, either an E-LAN or an ELine service must be created firstly, and then CES parameters are added to the E-LAN or E-Line service so that the CES service is established. Note that G.8031 cannot be applied to the Ethernet service that carries CES. Instead, CES linear protection can be applied.

4.9. CES TDM Mode Switching


Changing TDM Mode between E1/T1 will make system reboot. Note that all the TDM configurations in the system will be automatically deleted after rebooting if the TDM Mode in the configuration file is not consistent with that of the system.

4.10.

1+1 Hot-Standby ODU Function

When a LPG (Link Protection Group, used for 1+1 ODU) is created, a dedicated service will also be created for P-CCM between two ODUs (P-CCM is the OAM mechanism used by 1+1 ODU for detecting the failure of the active ODU). P-CCM can be enabled via the Bridge Configuration and Port Configuration.

4.11.

Deploying Power-plus-Ethernet (P+E)

1. Due to the attribute of the circuitry of P+E interface, it is harmful to plug and unplug the UTP cable to and from the P+E interface very frequently with short intervals. It is strongly suggested to leave at least 5 seconds between plugging and unplugging (and vice versa) the cable. 2. When using P+E ports of IDU to feed DC power to ODUs, please keep the P+E cable length and the DC input voltage to IDU within the following safe border and the overall current to all the ODUs should be lower than 6A:
2 x ODU P+E on Mainboard 100m 40.5V ~ 53V 80m 40.5V ~ 53V 80m 43V ~ 53V 4 x ODU

Power Injector Card

Important Notice: The P+E solution is not compatible with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) defined by IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at since P+E intends to provide higher power (watts) than that provided by the two standards. Thus, it is harmful to connect FPH800 P+E interfaces to other devices than NSNs FlexiPacket ODUs. Warning: It is forbidden to connect other P+E ports (for example, the P+E ports of the external Power Injector) to the P+E ports of FPH800 whether the P+E function of FPH800 is disabled or enabled. It is also highly risky to connect SPD (Surge Protection Device) to P+E ports of FPH800. FPH800 and its Power Injector Card have surge protection on P+E ports. External SPD will not help protecting FPH800 but may damage it.

5. Solved Issues in R2.0EP2


5.1. System
Ref. No.: FR_0000009702 Restore to Factory Default will force the system to warm-reboot Description: Sometimes, Restore to Factory Default makes the system to warm reboot, but the correct process should be cold reboot. Suggestion: to make sure that the system will cold-reboot after the configuration is restored to factory default, it is better to run hardware reboot in WebLCT. Now it cold reboots after the configuration is restored to factory default.

5.2. CES
Ref. No.:FR_0000013173 E1 port is admin down but still raises alarms Description: All the alarms on the E1 port that is admin down should be masked (e.g., AIS can come from the other end of E1 link but should be masked). Ref. No.:FR_0000013185 Occasionally, some T1 CES service cannot recover after radio link deep fading

Description: after the radio link resumes from deep fading, occasionally 2 to 3 T1 CES services among many others on the link cannot recover. Now all the T1 CES services can recover. Ref. No.:FR_0000012678 CESoP service on FlexBus card cannot resume when 19E PIU reboots

Description: When the 19E PIU connecting with the FlexBus card of FPH800 cold reboots, the E1 CESoP services on the FlexBus card cannot come back again. Workaround: By unplugging and plugging again the FlexBus card, CESoP on this card can be recovered. Now FB card can resume working after 19E PIU reboots. Ref. No.:FR_0000012616 CESoP traffic on 16 x E1 card does not come back after the card is plugged out and plugged in again.

Workaround: if this problem happens, just unplug and plug the card once more. Now CES traffic on 16xE1 card can come back after the card is plugged back in.

5.3. Clock Synchronization


Ref. No.:FR_0000003607 Wrong clock status when a failed clock source is added Description: When a failed clock source is added to a system whose clock is in free-run state, the systems clock is changed to holdover status. According to Synchronous Ethernet standard, its state should be free-run. This issue has no practical impact on normal operation because the system is holding over its clock onto its own free-run clock, i.e., same as in free-run state. Now the clock remains in free-run when a failed clock source is added.

5.4. Protection
Ref. No.:FR_0000007342 CIST Port state is not uniform before and after cold reboot

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 9 -

Description: After xSTP is enabled and then disabled, the status of the ports in CIST list becomes forwarding. However, after cold-reboot, the ports status shows disabled. This issue does not affect the traffic. It is just that the port status is not consistently shown before and after cold-reboot. When the port status is disabled, the port is actually still forwarding. Now the port status remains in forwarding state after cold-reboot.

5.5. Management and WebLCT


Ref. No.:FR_0000013212 Static local trap receiver IP address gets lost after cold-reboot Workaround: after cold-reboot, please remember to re-configure the static local trap IP address in WebLCT. Note that by default the IP address of trap receiver is automatically set to be the IP address of NetViewer. Now the static IP address of trap receiver is kept after cold-reboot. Ref. No.:FR_0000012717 The tab title of PW Performance History in WebLCT is PM 1x 24H

Description: the correct tab title should be PM 4 x 24 Hours. Now the tab title is 4 x 24 Hours. Ref. No.:FR_0000012605 The initial status of Current Data of the current Ethernet Service Performance is false

Description: In fact, it should be true. The initial Current Data cannot be false (it becomes false only after the measured port is brought down for some while). Now the initial status is true. Ref. No.:FR_0000009693 WebLCT shows Mismatch but not Disconnected on a slot from which an interface card is pulled out and the slot is unequipped

Description: After an interface card is pulled out from its slot and then the slot is unequipped, WebLCT should show disconnected but it shows not mismatch. Now the slot status is disconnected in this case. Ref. No.:FR_0000006509 Excessive LLDP information change reports in the log

Description: In WebLCT Log Management, "LLDP information change" report is repeatedly generated, which results in excessive LLDP Information Change reports in the log.

6. Solved Limitations in R2.0EP2


Ref. No.:FR_0000013036 The current release supports up to 4 LPG and 4 x LAG groups Description: with two 4-port GE cards, the system should be able to support up to 6 LPG groups and 7 LAG groups but currently it supports 4 x LPG, or 4 x LAG. Now the system supports up to 6 x LPG, or up to 7 x LAG groups. Ref. No.:FR_0000012748 Ethernet and CESoP traffic get hit by change of role of 2+0 ODU

Description: Warm rebooting the active ODU of 2+0 XPIC will change the role of ODUs (master/slave) which will hit the Ethernet and CES traffic until LPG switch-over ends. This is because that ODU sends PCCM and E-CCM by CPU, so warm-rebooting one ODU will make IDU switch traffic to another ODU. Now change of 2+0 ODU roles will not hit traffic.

10

Ref. No.: FR_0000010100 Mapping rule precedence can only use odd index number when creating service with G.8031 protection

Description: Mapping rule precedence can only use odd number. The even index numbers are reserved for G.8031 protection service. Now both odd and even number can be used. Ref. No.:FR_0000007167 Lack of notice when configuration is restored successfully from USB memory

Description: When configuration is restored from the configuration file on the USB memory key, there is not a notice on WebLCT telling the result of the restoration. Now there is a trap on the result of configuration restoration.

7. Issues Newly Found in Previous Release but Fixed in R2.0EP2


Some new issues were found in previous releases (until R2.0EP1 PU7), but are fixed by this release (R2.0EP2).

7.1. System
Ref. No.: ID_11585 Frequently cold-rebooting system may cause 4xGE card to stop forwarding packets.

Ref. No.: ID_11573 Changing SFP port mode (GE vs. STM-1) does not turn down SFP component Description: After changing the mode of a SFP port (GE vs. STM-1), the admin status of the SFP port and the SFP component in the SFP port is turned down by default. However, the SFP component is not turned down correctly in this case. As a result, the operation status of both ends of the link remains up (because the SFP component on both sides is still up) even though the admin and operation status of the end that changed the port mode are shown as down on WebLCT. Ref. No.: ID_11376 ALS is not enabled on optical SFP as expected when ALS was disabled before on an electrical SFP in the same port

Description: Disable ALS on an electrical SFP, then ALS will not be enabled on an optical SFP inserted to the same port. The right behavior is that ALS is enabled by default on optical SFP. Ref. No.: ID_11305 ALS and Laser Shutdown configuration are not reset to default after the slot with 4xGE optical card is unequipped and then assigned to 4xGE optical card again

Description: After the slot is unequipped while with 4xGE optical card in the slot, it is re-assigned to 4xGE optical card, ALS and Laser Shutdown configuration are supposed to be initialized. However, their configuration remains unchanged. Workaround: ALS and Laser Shutdown can be re-configured.

7.2. Ethernet Service


Ref. No.: ID_11416 NNI port of E-LAN service of source IP mapping forwards untagged packets Description: all the packets on NNI port are supposed to carry S-Tag, all the untagged packets are dropped at NNI port. However, when NNI has E-LAN services using source IP mapping, it forwards untagged frames. In reality, NNI ports will never receive untagged frames, so this issue will not arise.

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 11 -

11

Ref. No.: FR_0000012908 (ID_11053) IP mapping should not take effect when netmask is 0.0.0.0.

Description: Net mask of 0.0.0.0 for IP mapping means that all the packets are sent to this service. This mapping rule should not take effect.

7.3. CESoP and Clock Synchronization


Ref. No.: ID_11443 T1 AMI line coding is not supported anymore but still appears in WebLCT Ref. No.: ID_11404 Deleting the Ethernet PW of E1 CESoP will be denied after pulling out the 16xE1 card and deleting CES services

Description: When there are E1 CESoP services on the 16xE1 card, deleting the underlying Ethernet PW of the E1 CESoP services after the CESoP services are deleted and the card is pulled out will be denied. Workaround: deleting CESoP service and Ethernet PW before pulling out the 16xE1 card. Ref. No.: FR_0000010443 (ID_7473) The status of FB port whose admin status is down will turn red after warm-reboot

Description: When the admin status is down, the FB (FlexBus) port LED is off. However, after warm-reboot, the LED becomes red (Red LED = link down), which is wrong. Ref. No.: FR_0000010464 (ID_7325) Index of CES service on FB card in alarm table is not clear

Description: The service ID of CES on FB card is confusing. For example, alarm of CES service #15 on FB port 1 is displayed as FB1 and PW2/15, but it should be FB2/1 and PW15 (i.e., slot number should be in FB port index, not in PW index).

7.4. Protection
Ref. No.: ID_11660 Revertive G.8031 protected service wont switch back to working path Description: if 1+1 or 2+0 ODU is switching roles (hot <-> standby) during IDU warm rebooting, revertive G.8031 protected services wont switch back to working path and will stay on protection path.

7.5. OAM
Ref. No.: ID_11564 Enabling PM on a large number of G.8031 protected services, then deleting the services may cause system warm-reboot. Ref. No.: ID_11498 SLA PM counter for NNI port is not removed (null items) Ref. No.: ID_11493 The loopback state becomes unknown after IDU warm-reboot

Workaround: disable PM before deleting the service.

Description: While loopback is still in the status in progress (before release time expires), warm-reboot will make its status known. The right status should be in progress. Ref. No.: ID_11461 OAM DM interval in WebLCT is automatically modified from 10s to 1 second.

Description: the interval of Delay Measurement (DM) is either 1s or 10s. When 10s is configured, it will always become 1s. Ref. No.: ID_11411 MEP Radio Link Down" alarm is not cleared after E-CCM is disabled

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 12 -

12

Description: in 1+1 hot-standby system type, the standby ODU may generate MEP Radio Link Down alarm (because it turns off its radio port) but this alarm should have been masked or cleared automatically. It is expected that disabling E-CCM could mask this alarm. However, this is not the case. Ref. No.: ID_11333 Inconsistent PW index in PW performance table and in alarm table

Description: In PW performance table, PW Index is given by system when creating the CESoP service. In Alarm table, source is expected to be PW index but it uses VC-12 index (in the format of SFP1 PW x/y, x/y in Alarm table is not the same as in PW index, where x is slot number and y is port number). Ref. No.: ID_11233 RMON counters count both sent and received packets Ref. No.: ID_11168 Oversized frames are counted as dropped frames

Description: RMON counters should count sent and received packets separately.

Description: There is a dedicated counter for oversized frames. Oversized frames should not be counted as dropped frames. Frames shorter than MTU, which is configurable per-port (default is 1632, max. is 9600), are not dropped and so should not be counted as dropped frames. Ref. No.: FR_0000010841 (ID_7719) A GE port used to be in LAG does not send OAM CCM

Description: For example, two ports are in LAG. Port 1 is used in LAG to send CCM. When LAG is deleted, port 2 as an independent port now cannot send CCM. Workaround: cold reboot the system. Ref. No.: FR_0000010747 (ID_7692) MD with level 0 should not be in G.8031 MD list Description: MD level 0 is for link layer OAM. For Ethernet OAM, valid value of MD level should be 1 7. Note that OAM frame with MD=0 is sent untagged on NNI port and thus is dropped by intermediate node. Ref. No.: FR_0000010705 (ID_7565) The MD and MA for G. 8031 can be deleted

Description: When configuring G.8031, MD and MA is automatically added (which can be seen in OAM function in WebLCT) but they can be deleted, which should not be allowed. Ref. No.: FR_0000010594 (ID_7474) the traffic class of OAM CCM message is not the same as the priority of its associated Ethernet service

Description: The priority of G.8031 CCM message is not configurable and is fixed to 7 in R2.0EP1. In R2.0EP2, it is configurable and the default is the same as the priority of its associated service.

7.6. Management and WebLCT


Ref. No.: ID_11574 System may lose management when SynchE module sends a large number of traps

Description: When SynchE timing module sends a large number of traps, management may get lost but services are still up and running. Ref. No.: ID_11570 Downloading large event log may fail

Description: When flash memory does not have enough space to store large event logs, saving such log file will make the file defective. When WebLCT tries to get the event log file using FTP, it fails. Workaround: download the log file in time and delete it before it becomes too large Ref. No.: ID_11546 FTP server of the system hangs after more than 6 FTP sessions are opened Ref. No.: ID_11550 The sequence order of LAG member ports on WebLCT is not right

Description: port 1/2/3/4 is displayed as port 3/1/2/4. Ref. No.: ID_11524 Inserting a new type of card in the slot already assigned to another type of card may make system lose management and traffic interrupted

Description: for example, assign the slot to 16xE1 card, then insert 4xGE optical card without re-assigning, the system and all the services will be interrupted. Network management gets lost. Workaround: assign the slot to the new type of card before inserting the new card. Ref. No.: ID_11517 WebLCT displays a string instead of a MAC address in OAM MEP database Ref. No.: ID_11457 The card name in WebLCT in slot status is not the same as that in assign menu. Ref. No.: ID_11256 3rd party device not shown in Remote System table of LLDP Ref. No.: ID_11255 DCN port forwards LLDP PDU over the management VLAN

Description: In Slot Inventory, card name is not consistent with that in assign menu. Description: 3rd party devices cannot be shown in remote system table of LLDP.

Description: If the DCN port is connected with a device that runs LLDP, it forwards LLDP PDUs over the management VLAN. The right behavior is that DCN port drops LLDP PDUs. Ref. No.: ID_11236 Power injector card can be unequipped directly while P+E is enabled

Description: P+E should be disabled before the power injector card is unequipped. In release R2.0EP2, there is a message on WebLCT asking to disable P+E first. Ref. No.: ID_11199 The ODU LED status on WebLCT is not in synch with the status on IDU Ref. No.: ID_11182 No prompt for Ethernet OAM license when G.8031 license is activated

Description: The actual ODU LED status on IDU is not the same as that on WebLCT.

Description: G.8031 uses Ethernet OAM tools to detect failures. When it is activated, it assumes that Ethernet OAM license is also installed. However, the system does not check this and there is no warning message on WebLCT reminding users to activate Ethernet OAM as well. Ref. No.: FR_0000013722 (ID_11076) Packets with Management VID are sent over E-Line service.

Description: Adding UNI to Management VLAN, creating E-Line with mapping rule of any, the packet with Management VID will be sent over the E-Line service. This is due to wrong configuration of mapping rules. However, the system should never send Management frames over Ethernet services.

8. Issues Solved in R2.0_1.7.0 (a.k.a. R2.0EP1 PU7)


8.1. System
Ref. No.: FR_0000013137 Electrical GE SFP cannot be turned up automatically when auto-neg is enabled

Description: when electrical GE SFP is inserted to the SFP port on the mainboard, it cannot become up after it is set to GE mode, auto-negotiation enabled and admin status is turned up.

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 14 -

14

Workaround was to set manually the auto-negotiation parameters (Auto-Negotiation Capability Advertized Bits) of the SFP in WebLCT, and then it can be turned up. This issue is solved. Now the electrical SFP can be turned up automatically after it is inserted.

8.2. LPG
Ref. No.: FR_0000013132 Wrong default priority of E-CCM Description: the traffic priority of E-CCM is 0. The right priority of E-CCM should be 7. This issue is solved. Now the priority of E-CCM frames is fixed to 7 (the highest). Ref. No.: FR_0000013072 E-CCM of LPG is not sent to the port which used to be in LAG

Description: The GE ports used to be in LAG that was removed later on are now configured in LPG, but ECCM is sent only to one of the ports. Workaround: cold- reboot after removing LAG, then configure LPG. This issue is solved. Now E-CCM is sent to all the ports in LPG.

8.3. LAG
Ref. No.: FR_0000009999 SFP port cannot be added to LAG when the ports admin status is down Description: LAG requires its member ports to be Full-Duplex. When Auto-negotiation is disabled on SFP port, its default duplex type is sometimes null when admin is down, so LAG cannot be established with this port. Workaround solution: Setting admin status of the port up, the default duplex type will become non-null, and LAG can be established. Another way around is to disable auto-negotiation and set port duplex to FullDuplex. This issue is solved in R2.0EP1 PU7. Now the default port type of SFP port is not null and it can be added to LAG even when the ports admin status is down.

8.4. CES
Ref. No.: FR_0000013039 CESoP traffic is blocked occasionally in one direction when 2+0 becomes 1+1

Description: When a 2+0 link is configured to become 1+1 link, the CES traffic on the link may be blocked occasionally in one direction. Workaround: disable and then enable the CES service, it will resume. In this release, CES traffic will not be blocked. Ref. No.: FR_0000012707/13046 some CESoP will recover about 1 min after 1+1/2+0 link resumes

Description: with 1+1 or 2+0 installation type, for whatever the reason the physical link either goes down or change its status rapidly (due to multi-path signal fading, e.g.) which brings down CES services. After the physical link for the CES services has recovered (either when 1+1/2+0 ODUs switch traffic to the one that is available, or the whole link recovers from deep fading), it takes some (but not all) of the CES services about 1min to come back. Note that 1+0 does not have this problem, i.e., the problem may arise only with LPG on IDU.

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 15 -

15

This is solved. In this release, CESoP service will come back right after the physical link recovers. T1 bit rate accuracy does not meet the standard specification

Description: the T1 bit rate accuracy of T1 CESoP service is required to be 1544 kbps 3ppm, which does not meet G.703 specifications (1544 kbps 50 bits/s or 32ppm). In this release, T1 line rate accuracy can be 1544 kbps 100ppm and T1 CESoP still works normally.

8.5. Management
Ref. No.: FR_0000012646 The default priority value of Management VLAN is not consistent with that of ODU

Description: the traffic class for the management frames is priority 6 by default, but it should be 5. In this release, default priority of the Management VLAN is set to 5. Ref. No.: FR_0000012940 VLAN ID 4091-4094 cannot be set for the Management VLAN Ref. No.: FR_0000012936 The priority of the management frames is changed after passing from one NNI port to another In this release, VLAN ID 4091 4094 can be used for Management VLAN.

Description: The frames tagged with the Management VLAN ID (i.e. the management frames) will be tagged with the traffic class priority configured on the port for the Management VLAN. If this configuration is different from port to port, the priority of the management frames will also change accordingly. In this release, the priority of Management frames will be kept unchanged when they pass through NNI port. Ref. No.: FR_0000006212 Refreshing Account Log raises Cross Threshold alarm

Description: Refreshing account log should not raise Cross Threshold alarm. This issue is solved. Now the Cross Threshold alarm is not raised.

9. Issues Solved since R2.0_1.13.0 (a.k.a. R2.0 EP1 PU6)


9.1. System
Ref. No.: FR_0000009215 4 x GE optical card cannot receive any packets in rare cases

Description: 4 x GE Optical card does not send and receive packets after it is plugged and unplugged many times or the system is cold/warm rebooted many times. Ref. No.: FR_0000008124 ODU Alarm LED is not supported on 4 x GE and Power Injector card

Description: this LED is always off. In this release, the ODU Alarm LED can be turned on.

9.2. Ethernet Services


Ref. No.: FR_0000009998 Changing the management VLAN ID to a C-VLAN ID will make the C-VLAN disappear in the mapping rules of an E-LAN service

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 16 -

16

Description: Modifying the Management VLAN ID to one of the C-VLANs used in the mapping rules for an E-LAN service will generate an error message but the modification succeeds. However, the modification makes the C-VLAN disappear from the mapping rules.

9.3. CES Services


Ref. No.: FR_0000007901 CES will stop working during system warm-reboot

Description: Using Reset command in WebLCT (i.e., warm-reboot) causes CES to stop working for a short period of time and errors are generated. Note that Ethernet services are not impacted by warm-reboot. Ref. No.: FR_0000007767 Warm resetting the systems at the same time on both ends of a CES service interrupts CESoP traffic.

This issue is fixed in this release. Now CESoP traffic wont be interrupted by warm-rebooting on both ends of the service. Ref. No.: FR_0000007350 CESoP service over E-LAN with LAG port cannot be configured or deleted

Description: In the previous releases, it is not allowed to establish CES service over E-LAN PW that has LAG port. In this release, it is allowed to establish E-LAN PW with LAG port for CES. However, operator must disable xSTP on the LAG as xSTP cannot run over LAG port in this release. Moreover, operator must make sure that the E-LAN PW with LAG is established without any loops. Ref. No.: FR_0000006985 long MSTP convergence time for CES over E-LAN PW with LPG port

Description: CES service runs on top of an Ethernet Pseudo-Wire (PW) that can be either an E-Line or an ELAN service. If this Ethernet PW is an E-LAN service that has LPG port on it and MSTP is run over the E_LAN PW, the convergence time of MSTP can be as long as 20 seconds. This issue is solved. Now the convergence time is less than 500ms in most cases.

9.4. CES Linear Protection


Ref. No.: FR_0000009966 LOF alarm on working path of CES Linear Protection brings down service

Description: When LOF alarm is inserted to E1 CES traffic on the working path, it will cause traffic switchover to the protection path which is a correct behavior, but the service will go down abnormally. This issue is solved. Now the service will not go down. Ref. No.: FR_0000009889/9802 CES Linear Protection switch-over time may be more than 50ms when CES traffic is between an interface card and the mainboard and between two interface cards

Description: In this case, the switch-over time is occasionally (not always) around 60-80ms. Smaller CES jitter buffer size and frame size has better switching performance. This issue is solved. Now regardless of where the two interfaces are (on the mainboard and/or on the interface card), the switchover time is the same.

9.5. Clock Synchronization


Ref. No.: FR_0000003303 no SSM when external clock is not configured Ref. No.: FR_000004520 & FR_000007324 wrong clock status when switching clock source

Description: There is no SSM packet when no external timing source is configured.

Description: when two clock sources (Line Clock and Synch Ethernet) are configured, switching the clock source makes the synchronization state enter free run. According to the Synch Ethernet standard, the state should be Locked -> Hold-Over (optional) Locked. Note that services are not affected during clock source switching, which usually takes about 1 minute. Ref. No.: FR_0000009253 IEEE 1588v2 clock synchronization fails when 1588v2 is disabled by any of the upstream devices towards the clock source.

Description: For example, in the scenario below, two network devices (NE1 and NE2) are connected to 1588v2 clock source, 1588v2 clock source ------ NE1----- NE2 Note that the fix of this issue results in another minor issue with reference number of FR_0000012602 in the next chapter. Ref. No.: FR_0000012490: FPH800R2.0: Frequent cold reboot causes 1588 status to be always -in No Master status

Description: ToP status becomes No Master after frequent IDU cold reboot, and it cant lock again. Workaround: Cold reboot the system again. Ref. No.: FR_0000013508: Control protocol packets are counted into In Dropped Pkt in Ethernet PM

Description: The packets of some control protocols (e.g., those of xSTP, 1588v2, LLDP, OAM, etc.) that are supposed to go to CPU are counted as dropped packets in In-Dropped-Packet statistics in Ethernet Performance Management. This issue is solved. The packets of control protocols will not be counted as dropped packets by In-DroppedPacket statistics.

9.6. Ethernet Service Protection


Ref. No.: FR_0000010008 G.8031 APS messages cannot be sent over LPG or LAG port to remote system

Description: if there is LPG or LAG port on the working path of the E-Line service on the local system, APS messages cannot go through the LPG/LAG port. Ref. No.: FR_0000009764 G.8031 commands of lower precedence can be applied but will not cause problems

Description: G.8031 protection switching can be triggered manually by multiple commands but these commands have their pre-defined precedence (or privilege). In the current release, command of lower precedence is allowed to apply when the current command has higher precedence, which should be forbidden, even though the command of lower precedence will not take effect.

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 18 -

18

Command precedence from high to low is Lockout > SF to Protection > Manual Switch to Protection. SF stands for Signaled Failure, meaning that the path in SF status is made unavailable and thus switch-over should take place. This issue is solved. Now WebLCT does not allow the command with lower precedence than the current command to be applied. Ref. No.: FR_0000009657 G.8031 Protection status shows WTR which should be On Protection

Description: WTR (wait-to-restore) status means that the traffic is on protection path but the working path has recovered and is waiting for the traffic to switch back after WTR timer expires (5min by default). During this period, G.8031 APS (auto-protection switching) status in WebLCT should show On Protection instead of WTR. Signaled APS status is WTR, though, which is correct. Ref. No.: FR_0000009530 No alarm is raised when both the working and protection path fail Ref. No.: FR_0000009339 Lack of Response alarm is wrongly raised when switch-over happens to a large number of services

Description: System should raise APS_SWITCH_FAIL alarm in this case but it does not.

Description: When a large number of E-Line services on the same path are configured with G.8031 protection and protection switching takes place as a result of any failure on their working path, Lack of Response critical alarm may show up in the system randomly. In fact, these services are not impacted, and this alarm should be ignored. Ref. No.:FR_0000006640 Performance Statistics of a port in LAG stops when the LAG is deleted before disabled

Description: When a LAG is deleted before it is administratively disabled, the Ethernet ports in this LAG will not have Ethernet Port performance statistics anymore. Recreating LAG on these ports does not address the issue.

9.7. OAM
Ref. No.: FR_0000007407 System crashes when UTP cable is unplugged and plugged on the GE port with a large number of OAM MEPs configured

Description: Unplugging/plugging cable generates an interrupt to CPU for each MEP and so a large number of MEPs. Now the issue is solved and the system wont crash in this case.

9.8. WebLCT and Management


Ref. No.: FR_0000012757 the IP fragmentation bug in VxWorks may make FPH800 crash when NetViewer is trying to repeatedly get some MIB nodes of the FPH800

Description: VxWorks is the operating system of FPH800 and this release has fixed the IP fragmentation bug in VxWorks. Ref. No.: FR_0000011822 System crash after rounds of PM data collection by NetViewer

Description: After a number of collections of performance measurement data (i.e., statistics) by NetViewer, the system may crash. This issue is fixed by this release. Ref. No.: FR_0000009209 Sometimes two login windows pop up

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 19 -

19

Description: After launching WebLCT, the user login window may pop up twice. Anyone of them can be used for login, though. Ref. No.: FR_0000009187 C-VLAN for CESoP service can be configured but will not be brought into effect

Description: When creating CESoP service, WebLCT allows users to select a new C-VLAN, but it will be ignored and the default C-VLAN will always be used for this CESoP service. As C-VLAN for CESoP is only for internal use, this issue has no effect on the service.

Known Limitations in R2.0EP2


CES and Clock Synchronization

Ref. No.: ID_11113 Cold-reboot of system brings clock status to hold-over but not free-run

Description: When FPH800 cold reboots after it locks its clock to an IEEE1588v2 master clock, it starts from hold-over state to locked state. The right behavior should be that it starts from free-run state after coldreboot. Ref. No.: ID_11094 An E-Line service cannot have two IEEE1588 master clocks

Description: two IEEE1588v2 master clocks cannot be on one E-Line service. Workaround: if two masters need to be on the same service, the service can be an E-LAN.

Ref. No.: FR_0000012352 (ID_9378) CESoP traffic will get hit when it's MAC address learning mode is changed

Description: Changing MAC Address Learning Mode (automatic/manual) of a CES service will interrupt CES traffic for a short while but will resume normal. 10.1.2. OAM

Ref. No.: FR_0000013508 (ID_10755) Control protocol packets are counted as In Dropped Packets

Description: The control packets of the following protocols are counted as dropped packets in Performance Monitoring (PM): Link OAM, G.8031, Y.1731 Loss and Delay Measurement, Loopback, SSM ECCM, xSTP BPDU, LLDP etc. 10.1.3. Management and WebLCT

Ref. No.: FR_0000013734 (ID_11192) Standard community names are accepted even if they were previously disabled

Description: Even though it is disabled to use public and private as community names, the existing community names can be changed to public or private. It is better not to allow changing existing community names to public and private.

Ref. No.: FR_0000012646 The default priority value of Management VLAN is not consistent with that of ODU Ref. No.: FR_0000012940 VLAN ID 4091-4094 cannot be set for the Management VLAN Ref. No.: FR_0000012936 The priority of the management frames is changed after passing from one NNI port to another

Description: the traffic class for the management frames is priority 6 by default, but it should be 5.

Description: The frames tagged with the Management VLAN ID (i.e. the management frames) will be tagged with the traffic class priority configured on the port for the Management VLAN. If this configuration is different from port to port, the priority of the management frames will also change accordingly. 10.2.2. Protection

Ref. No.: FR_0000012748 Ethernet and CESoP traffic get hit by change of role of 2+0 ODU

Description: Warm rebooting the active ODU of 2+0 XPIC will change the role of ODUs (master/slave) which will hit the Ethernet and CES traffic until LPG switch-over ends. This is because that ODU sends PCCM and E-CCM by CPU, so warm-rebooting one ODU will make IDU switch traffic to another ODU. Ref. No.: FR_0000013036 The current release supports up to 4 LPG groups

Description: with two 4-port GE cards, the system should be able to support up to 6 LPG groups but currently it supports 4. Ref. No.: FR_0000008874 Long LAG switchover time between FPH800 and Cisco7609 router

Description: LAG convergence time is more than 3 seconds when SrcMAC-XOR-DestMAC is used between FPH800 and Cisco 7600 as load sharing algorithm. xSTP does not support LAG

Description: even though all the physical ports are in xSTP port list in WebLCT by default, operator must disable xSTP on the ports when they are configured as LAG. 10.2.3. Clock Synchronization

Ref. No.: FR_0000012602 IEEE1588v2 clock synch has unexpected intermediate states when IEEE1588v2 function is disabled at the system with the master clock

Description: when IEEE1588v2 function is disabled in the FPH800 that is connected with the IEEE1588 clock source (master clock), the other FPH800 systems sharing this master clock can lock to this clock after going through some intermediate status changes (i.e., status changes from Locking No Master Locking Locked). The intermediate states are not expected but they do not pose any practical impact on the normal IEEE1588 functions, also because that it happens only when the IEEE1588 function is disabled shortly after the FPH800 connected with the master clock is powered up. E1 cross-connect function and IEEE1588v2 cannot be used at the same time

Description: Cross-connect and IEEE1588v2 cannot be used at the same time. However, there is no prompt in WebLCT when the two functions are both configured (which should have been forbidden). In this case, TDM traffic will not pass through the cross-connect. Note: Cross-connect is used for the local E1 and STM-1 ports to talk to each other and it is not relevant to CES.

Ref. No.:FR_0000001740 WRR not accurate for large frames

Description: WRR scheduling is not always accurate when frame MTU is larger than 1000 bytes, in which case, queue 7 and queue 6 (i.e., the two highest priority queues) demonstrate the same weight regardless of the actual weight configured for them. Ref. No.:FR_0000001741 DDR not accurate for large frames Ref. No.:FR_0000003490 Odd DRR weight becomes even Description: DRR scheduling is not always accurate same phenomenon as FR_0000001740.

Description: When DRR weight is configured with an odd number, the system will set the actual value as odd +1. Suggestion: operators can use even numbers for weights. For example, instead of 1, 3, and 5, operators can use 2, 6, and 10. Ref. No.:FR_0000004848 Rate limiting not accurate when Whole Traffic and BC/MC/Unknown Traffic policing are both applied on the same port

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 22 -

22

Description: Rate limiting is not accurate when both Whole Traffic Policer and BC/MC/Unknown Policer are applied at the same time. Note: Whole Traffic Policer is an independent traffic policer that can be applied to a port and limit the rate of all the traffic on this port. BC/MC/Unknown Policer is the traffic policer that limits all the Broadcast, Multicast and Unknown-Address traffic rate on a port for all the E-LAN services on this port. Workaround solution: In most cases, Whole Traffic Policer is not used because each service has its own traffic policer. In this case, Whole Traffic Policer can be disabled and this problem will not appear. 10.6.3. Protection

Ref. No.:FR_0000003311 xSTP does not work while system is warm rebooting

Description: When the system is warm rebooting, temporary loops may exist in the network until xSTP is up and running. 10.6.4. OAM

Notes on CCM (Continuity Check Messages ) Scalability

Description: FPH800 supports 3.33ms CCM interval for up to 256 services. However, there should be no more than 32 CCM of 3.33ms flows on one GE port. Other configurable CCM intervals are 10ms, 100ms, 1sec. For these intervals, the number of CCM flows per port is not restricted. Notes on Performance Measurement Scalability

Description: In the current release, service-level performance measurement (including Loss Measurement and Delay Measurement) must be triggered manually on WebLCT. When triggered, performance measurement function will send 32 messages continuously and there should be no more than 8 MEPs sending these messages at the same time. 10.6.5. CES

Ref. No.:FR_0000004032 SSRC range not fully supported

Description: SSRC (Synchronization Source) range does not fully comply with the standard CESoPSN (RFC5086) and SAToP (RFC4553). The supported range is 0x00000000~0x7FFFFFFF. Range 0x80000000 ~ 0xFFFFFFFF is not supported. Ref. No.: FR_0000005647 Non-interoperability with FM200 in UDP port range 63488 to 65535

Description: Because UDP ports 63488 to 65535 are reserved by FPH800 for TDM cross-connect which FM200 does not support, FPH800 does not interoperate with FM200 in this UDP port range. 10.6.6. Clock Synchronization

Ref. No.:FR_000006917 Clock cant be locked when SFP port with electrical SFP is set as timing source

Description: when the SFP port of the system is configured as GE port and electrical SFP is inserted in this port, this port cannot be used as Synchronous Ethernet clock source. Ref. No.: FR_0000007335 Warm reboot stops SSM

Description: In Alarm list, the source ID of STM-1 HP (High Path) alarm uses port ID instead of VC-4 ID, for example, SFP 0/1 instead of VC4/1. Still, it can be seen that the alarm comes from the SFP port 0/1 on the mainboard of the system. Ref. No.: ID_11555 Occasionally one of TDM CC services cannot recover after cold-reboot Ref. No.: FR_0000011864 (ID_10792) Restoring configurations on different card (e.g., configuration of FB card restored to 16xE1 card) does not resume CES traffic when the original card is plugged back in.

Description: One of the CC (cross-connect) services cannot recover after cold-reboot.

Workaround: Re-plug the original card and the configuration will be set in it again, and CES traffic will resume. Suggestion: do not download configuration file to a new hardware environment. WebLCT does not check the consistency between the hardware configurations and the software configurations. Ref. No.: ID_11110 RS-TIM alarm on working path of 1+1 MSP generates HP-RDI while traffic is on the protection path

Description: In 1+1 MSP mode, when STM-1 traffic is on the protection link and the working link has RSTIM alarm, the local system sends both MS-RDI and HP-RDI alarm to the remote system. In fact, it should only send MS-RDI. HP-RDI should be ignored in this case. Ref. No.: FR_0000013692 (ID_11039) Enabling TU-AIS function on STM-1 port should not send out TU-AIS alarm when the VC channel has no CC configured

Description: TU-AIS function refers to E1 AIS replicated in TU-12 header. TU-AIS is raised only when STM-1 port has E1 CES or E1 CC associated with it and the E1 has AIS. However, TU-AIS alarm is generated on STM-1 port even when it has no cross-connect or CES service with any E1 ports. In this case, TU-AIS should be ignored. Ref. No.: FR_0000013627 (ID_10948) Adding timing frequency offset of 100ppm, the downstream device becomes timing-unlocked, and clock synch state goes to free-run

Description: Adding 100ppm offset to E1 on IDU that synchronizes its clock to the E1 port and propagates the clock via Synchronous Ethernet to other devices, the downstream device such as ODU may enter freerun, and in some cases even hang up, which is the normal result. The right behavior is that IDU does not send this clock to the downstream devices. In the current release, IDU does not impose any restrictions on the clock offset of its clock source.

11.1.2.

Protection

Ref. No.: ID_11665 In 1+1 mode, MEP Radio Link Down alarm may arise randomly

Description: this alarm should arise only when the radio link is down, but in 1+1 hot-standby mode, the standby ODU shuts down its radio port and so generates radio link down alarm that should have been masked. Ref. No.: ID_11635 B-bit alarm and R-bit alarm raised at the same time

Description: In G.8031 linear protection, FPH800 supports 1:1 protection only (B-bit is always 1) and revertive mode is configurable (R-bit can be either 0 or 1). In pure NSN environment, there should never be B-bit alarm. However, when connecting with 3rd party device, FPH800 may generate both R-bit and B-bit alarms. In this case, operators should check G.8031 configurations on both FPH800 and the 3rd party device to see whether 1:1 is configured on the 3rd party device and whether revertive/non-reviertive mode is configured consistently in both devices. 11.1.3. OAM

Ref. No.: ID_11632 One record of 15min PM date is split into two records (1s and 899s)

Description: 15 minutes equal to 900 seconds. 15 minutes of Ethernet Service PM data is somehow split into two parts, one for 1 second and one for 899 seconds. 11.1.4. Management and WebLCT

Ref. No.: FR_0000012786 (ID_9797) The SFP port with STM-1 mode should not be in Ethernet port list.

Description: The SFP ports when configured as STM-1 show up in the port list of LLDP, or MSTP, or CCM. Note that this issue exists in previous release as well (similar to FR_0000009148).

Known Issues in R2.0_1.13.0 (build 2.7.30 for R2.0EP1 PU6)


System

Ref. No.: FR_0000012593 The IP address of SNTP server is not set to default after the configuration is set to factory default

Description: After set to factory default is operated, the IP address of the SNTP server does not go back to factory default (0.0.0.0). Ref. No.: FR_0000013137 Electrical GE SFP cannot be turned up automatically

Description: when electrical GE SFP is inserted to the SFP port on the mainboard, it cannot be turned up automatically. Workaround is to set manually the auto-negotiation parameters of the SFP in WebLCT, and then it can be turned up. 11.2.2. Protection

Ref. No.: FR_0000013072 ECCM of LPG is not sent to the port which used to be in LAG

Description: The GE ports used to be in LAG that was removed later on are now configured in LPG, but ECCM is sent only to one of the ports.

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 25 -

25

Workaround: cold- reboot after removing LAG, then configure LPG. Ref. No.: FR_0000013132 Wrong default priority of E-CCM

Description: the default E-CCM priority is 0. The right default priority of E-CCM should be 7. Suggestion: it is better to change the priority of E-CCM in WebLCT to 7. Ref. No.: FR_0000009999 SFP port cannot be added to LAG when the ports admin status is down

Description: LAG requires its member ports to be Full-Duplex. When Auto-negotiation is disabled on SFP port, its default duplex type is sometimes null when admin is down, so LAG cannot be established with this port. Workaround solution: Setting admin status of the port up, the default duplex type will become non-null, and LAG can be established. Another way around is to disable auto-negotiation and set port duplex to FullDuplex. 11.2.3. CES

Ref. FR_0000012707/13046 some CESoP will recover about 1 min after 1+1/2+0 link resumes

Description: with 1+1 or 2+0 installation type, for whatever the reason the physical link either goes down or change its status rapidly (due to multi-path signal fading, e.g.) which brings down CES services. After the physical link for the CES services has recovered (either when 1+1/2+0 ODUs switch traffic to the one that is available, or the whole link recovers from deep fading), it takes some (but not all) of the CES services about 1min to come back. Note that 1+0 does not have this problem, i.e., the problem may arise only with LPG on IDU. Ref. No.: FR_0000013039 CESoP traffic is blocked occasionally in one direction when 2+0 becomes 1+1

Description: When a 2+0 link is configured to become 1+1 link, the CES traffic on the link may be blocked occasionally in one direction. Workaround: disable and then enable the CES service, it will resume. Ref. No.: FR_0000013173 E1 port is admin down but still raises alarms

Description: All the alarms on the E1 port that is admin down should be masked (e.g., AIS can come from the other end of E1 link but should be masked) Ref. No.: FR_0000012678 CESoP service on FlexBus card cannot resume when 19E PIU reboots

Description: When the 19E PIU connecting with the FlexBus card of FPH800 cold reboots, the E1 CESoP services on the FlexBus card cannot come back again. Workaround: By unplugging and plugging again the FlexBus card, CESoP on this card can be recovered. Ref. No.: FR_0000012616 CESoP traffic on 16 x E1 card does not come back after the card is plugged out and plugged in again. Ref. No.: FR_0000008067 slow fading between ODUs makes IDU E1frequency shift more than 4ppm

Workaround: if this problem happens, just unplug and plug the card once more.

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 26 -

26

Description: The E1 frequency shift of 4ppm is as compared with the clock source. There is no impact on the E1 CES traffic, though, and Unlock alarm will be raised. T1 bit rate accuracy does not meet the standard specification

Description: the T1 bit rate accuracy of T1 CESoP service is required to be 1544 kbps 3ppm, which does not meet G.703 specifications (1544 kbps 50 bits/s or 32ppm). Ref. No.: FR_0000013185 Occasionally, some T1 CES service cannot recover after radio link deep fading

Description: after the radio link resumes from deep fading, occasionally 2 to 3 T1 CES services among many others on the link cannot recover. 11.2.4. Clock Synchronization

Ref. No.: FR_0000012697 Synch type of E1 port is not PW Recovery when E1 is the timing source

Description: Synchronization Type of E1 port must be PW Recovery when E1 port is configured as the timing source. In the current release, users can configure other synch types, which should have been forbidden. 11.2.5. STM-1

Ref. No.: FR_0000009148 STM-1 SFP Port appears in MSTP table

Description: when the SFP ports on the mainboard of FPH800 are configured as STM-1 ports, they still appear in MSTP table, which is wrong. Ref. No.: FR_0000006372 External commands are saved in MIB and not cleared when there is line SF or SD

Description: When the two SFP ports on the mainboard are configured as STM-1 1+1 MSP ports, external commands trying to switch traffic to the working path that has SF (Signal Fail) and SD (Signal Degradation) still present as current command and are saved in MIB. The right behavior in this case is that all the external commands be cleared and not saved in the MIB. 11.2.6. G.8031

Ref. No.: FR_0000010063 G.8031-protected E-Line service enters wrong status after the working channel has recovered

Description: When the failed G.8031 working path becomes available again, both ends of the G.8031 protected service should enter WTR (wait-to-restore) state when revertive mode is enabled for G.8031 protection. However, one of the ends of the service enters hold-off status but it can switch traffic back to the working path after WTR timer expires. Ref. No.: FR_0000009981 Far-end has wrong APS status when there is G.8031 Signal Fail on the working path

Description: when there is Signal Fail (SF) alarm on the working path, the near end has the right signaled APS status (which is SF on Working), but the far end has no request on protection, which is wrong. 11.2.7. OAM in WebLCT

Ref. No.: FR_0000012717 the tab title of PW Performance History in WebLCT is PM 1x 24H

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 27 -

27

Description: the correct tab title should be PM 4 x 24 Hours. Ref. No.: FR_0000012605 The initial status of Current Data of the current Ethernet Service Performance is false

Description: In fact, it should be true. The initial Current Data cannot be false (it becomes false only after the measured port is brought down for some while). Ref. No.: FR_0000006707 Malformed Packets counters are reset after Payload Type Mismatch alarm is removed.

Description: the right behavior should be that the Malformed Packet counters are intact when Payload Type Mismatch alarm is removed. Ref. No.: FR_0000012589 The Error Frame counter is not correct for FlexBus (FB) card performance

Description: Error Frame counter does not count the right value of wrong FB frames, thus should be ignored. This will be fixed in the next release. 11.2.8. WebLCT and Management

Ref. No.: FR_0000009693 Card Name and Slot Mismatch

Description: In WebLCT, interface card name does not match the display on the slot location after the card is pulled out from the slot and unequipped in WebLCT. Ref. No.: FR_0000006212 Refreshing Account Log raises Cross Threshold alarm Ref. No.: FR_0000013212 Static local trap IP address gets lost after cold-reboot

Description: Refreshing account log should not raise Cross Threshold alarm.

Workaround: after cold-reboot, please remember to re-configure the static local trap IP address in WebLCT. Note that by default the IP address of trap receiver is automatically set to be the IP address of NetViewer.

System

Ref. No.: FR_0000009702 Restore to Factory Default will force the system to warm-reboot

Description: Sometimes, Restore to Factory Default makes the system to warm reboot, but the correct process should be cold reboot. Suggestion: to make sure that the system will cold-reboot after the configuration is restored to factory default, it is better to run hardware reboot in WebLCT.

Ref. No.: FR_0000009149 Status LED on Power Injector card does not work when surge occurs

Description: When electricity surge appears, the status LED on Power Injector card goes off. 11.3.2. Ethernet Service Protection

Ref. No.: FR_0000009761 Cold-reboot will clear G.8031 command

Description: cold-reboot will clear the latest G.8031 command (e.g., Manual Switch) that was run before the cold-reboot.

Ref. No.: FR_0000009648 G.8031 APS R-Bit Mismatch alarm does not disappear when system cannot receive APS messages

Description: After backup path is disconnected, G.8031 APS R-Bit mismatch alarm does not disappear. Same behavior is for A-bit, B-bit, and D-bit in APS messages. These alarms can be ignored if they are raised in this case. Ref. No.: FR_0000009336 Card Absent alarm does not override CCM-LOS and Channel Fail alarm

Description: As a rule of thumb, alarm on lower network layer should override alarm on higher network layer so that the root cause is better suggested and excessive but unnecessary alarms can be avoided. When G.8031 APS is configured on an interface card and this card is pulled out from the system, CCM-LOS and Channel Fail alarm (both are on service layer) are also raised together with Card Absent alarm. 11.3.3. Clock Synchronization

Ref. No.: FR_0000009466 Warm reboot of local system causes the IEEE1588 module of the remote system to reboot

Description: When IEEE1588 clock synchronization is working over an E-LAN service, warm rebooting a local system of the IEEE1588 service will make a remote system (the slave of IEEE1588 clock) to reboot its IEEE1588 module and it has to relock to the clock after the local system comes back again, which may take about 15 minutes. The right behavior of the remote system should be entering lock status without rebooting its IEEE 1588 module. This issue will not arise when IEEE1588 runs over E-Line service.

Ref. No.:FR_0000001582 Wrong MAC address aging time

Description: Actual MAC address aging time exceeds the configured aging time. For example, When the configured aging time is 300sec, the actual aging time is 400sec. When the configured aging time is 1000sec, the actual aging time is 1600sec. When the configured aging time is 5000sec, the actual aging time is 9000sec. 11.5.3. Protection

Ref. No.:FR_0000007342 CIST Port state is not uniform before and after cold reboot

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 29 -

29

Description: After xSTP is enabled and then disabled, the status of the ports in CIST list becomes forwarding. However, after cold-reboot, the ports status shows disabled. This issue does not affect the traffic. It is just that the port status is not consistently shown before and after cold-reboot. When the port status is disabled, the port is actually still forwarding. Ref. No.:FR_0000007085 ECCM includes SFP ports when configured as STM-1

Description: When the two SFP ports on the base system are configured to STM-1, they still appear in ECCM configuration table. In fact, in this case, the two SFP ports are not relevant to ECCM and should not appear in ECCM configuration table. Ref. No.:FR_0000005356 STM-1 1+1 MSP has wrong switch-over priority

Description: Manual Switch has higher priority level than SF (Signaled Failure). The right behavior is that SF has higher priority level than Manual Switch. 11.5.4. CES

Ref. No.: FR_0000006902 LP_DEG alarm is raised when STM-1 1+1 MSP is switching over

Description: VC-12 LP_DEG may be generated during STM-1 1+1 MSP switch-over. While this is a normal behavior, it can be annoying sometimes. In the future release, alarm suppression will be added so that LPDEG can be suppressed if configured so. Ref. No.: FR_0000007106 TU-LOM cant be displayed in HP PM Ref. No.: FR_0000007078 There is no status for RS-TIM and TU-LOM

Description: TU-LOM can't be displayed in current status of HP-PM, and HP-UAS does not count for it.

Description: The "Current Status" of RS-TIM and TU-LOM is NoDefect, which does not mean anything because these two alarms do not have counters in the system. RS-TIM and TU-LOM counter will be added in the future release. Ref. No.: FR_0000007687/9153 T1 port counters do not count the FAS or CRC errors injected to T1 traffic coming into T1 ports on the mainboard of the system

Description: when FAS or CRC error is inserted to T1 CES service, the T1 port counter cannot count the errors. 11.5.5. Clock Synchronization

Ref. No.:FR_0000003607 wrong clock status when a failed clock source is added

Description: When a failed clock source is added to a system whose clock is in free-run state, the systems clock is changed to holdover status. According to Synchronous Ethernet standard, its state should be free-run. This issue has no practical impact on normal operation because the system is holding over its clock onto its own free-run clock, i.e., same as in free-run state. Ref. No.: FR_0000007867 Wrong clock synchronization status after active ODU is cold-rebooted

Description: In the case of 1+1 ODU hot-standby, after the active ODU is cold-rebooted, the IDU synchronization status becomes free-run. The right status should be hold-over. There is no practical impact on clock synchronization. Ref. No.: FR_0000008055 Two IEEE1588v2 masters cannot use two different E-LAN services

Nokia Siemens NetworksCompany Confidential- 30 -

30

Description: If there are two clock masters, they cannot use two different E-LAN services. They can use either one E-LAN service or two different E-Line services. Ref. No.: FR_0000008054 Two IEEE1588v2 masters cannot share one E-Line service

Description: It is not possible to configure two IEEE1588v2 masters on the same E-Line service. Two masters can be on two different E-Line services, or on one E-LAN service. Ref. No.: FR_0000007793 timing interface down alarm

Description: When SSM is enabled and no clock source is configured, adding an Ethernet clock source will generate timing interface down alarm for 5 seconds. This is the normal behavior. 11.5.6. Management and WebLCT

Ref. No.: FR_0000005994 SLA statistics does not run if service PM is not enabled

Description: In WebLCT, menu item Statistics -> SLA (which shows the statistics of Green Packets and Total Packets of each service) does not work if Service Performance Measurement (i.e., Service PM) is not enabled. To enable service PM, operators can go to menu item Performance -> Ethernet Service -> Switch and enable Service PM for the selected services. Ref. No.:FR_0000006509 Excessive LLDP information change reports in the log

Description: In WebLCT Log Management, "LLDP information change" report is repeatedly generates, which results in excessive LLDP Information Change reports in the log.
