CAUTION

The information in this document is subject to technical developments. SAGEM SA reserves the right to modify product characteristics in the pursuit of improvement. The present manual concerns the FMX cross-connect / multiplexer; it describes all the subassemblies that can be inserted in the FMX12, P3 Subscriber and FMX4 shelves. The composition of the FMX equipment depends on the supplies defined in the contracts. The new functions of the P4.3 release are as follows : Compression of PCM coded speech channels by inclusion of an ADPCM card, Addition of two A2S card channel operating modes (transparent TS0 and I.431).

P4.3 and P4.3B releases are incompatible. Management of FMX equipment via MEGAPAC can only be performed once the box has been checked corresponding to the parameter "Equipment management via MEGAPAC" in the window " - LT configuration -". This window is displayed after clicking on " ? " in the menu bar of the main menu then "LT Options.." in the command and sub-menus list. A command, activated by checking the box in the " - CT configuration -" window, allows inhibition of LT signaling. This window is displayed after clicking on " ? " in the menu bar of the main menu then "LT Options.." in the command and sub-menus list . NOTE: LT (Local Terminal) is also noted as CT (Craft Terminal) in the documentation.

Note 2: The number of Conference card bridges is limited. Depending on the nature and number of participants, it is fixed at a maximum of: • 20 digital participants for: - 8 broadcast and/or sink bridges (with no conference bridge), - 6 bridges with a maximum of 3 conference bridges. In addition, the number of digital conference bridge participants is limited to 10 per conference bridge. • 24 analog participants for: - 12 analog conference bridges. Note: To return to the application’s main window, click on “Exit”.

Procedure:
- Select a bridge then double-click on it; the following window is displayed:

This window is used to create a digital or analog bridge.

Creating a bridge
For this, the operator should specify the bridge characteristics: • the nature of the bridge: digital or analog, • the type of bridge: - "Broadcast with return", "Sink", "Broadcast/sink" and "Digital conference" for a digital bridge. This field is set by default at "Digital conference". - "Analog conference" for an analog bridge.

• the bridge bit rate: - 64 kbit/s for an analog bridge, - 0.6 kbit/s, 1.2 kbit/s, 2.4 kbit/s, 4.8 kbit/s, 9.6 kbit/s, 19.2 kbit/s or 64 kbit/s for a digital bridge. This field is set by default at 0.6 kbit/s. Depending on the nature and type of bridge, the operator proposes the configuration of the bridge parameters: • the Boolean data law: - "AND" or "OR" for a digital bridge not of the "broadcast" type. • the Boolean Bit law for bits SB, SA (inv.), X (inv.): - "AND" or "OR" for a digital bridge. • the Boolean Bit a, b, c, d law: - "AND" or "OR" for an analog bridge or for a 64 kbit/s digital bridge. Important: A bridge can only be created if at least two participants have been created for the bridge (see following paragraph). Bridge creation can only be validated if it is coherent. Operator confirmation is then requested. Note: Once a participant is described for the bridge, the operator can no longer modify the bridge type or bit rate. Checks on the description of the bridge and its participants, detailed in the paragraph "Checks on the description of the bridge and its participants", are carried out by the CT. Once bridge creation is confirmed, the CT creates the bridge with its first two participants. It then creates each of its participants, then each of the connections established by the bridge participants (see following paragraphs). After creating this bridge, click on "Add part." for the following window to be displayed:

This window is used to create a participant.

Creating a participant
To create a participant, the operator must specify the participant parameters. These parameters vary according to the nature and type of bridge: - Low Bit Rate Digital (< 64 kbit/s), - Medium Bit Rate Digital (= 64 kbit/s), - Analog. The default value of the displayed parameters varies according to the nature and type of bridge: Note: The participant bit rate is the bit rate of the bridge to which the participant is associated. Participant creation can only be confirmed if the participant has been associated with a port of a card in the hardware description.

Participant association
Note: The port must be 64 kbit/s and in operation. The TS of the CE/CS datastream of the Conference card must have enough available contiguous bits to allow participant cross-connection. - Select the command "Link" to display the following window:

- Select the command "Select end..." - Select the shelf card port (or channel in the case of a V24/V28 cards).

There are two cases to consider: - analog bridge, - digital bridge. Analog bridge The TS of the CE/CS datastream of the Conference card must be completely free.

The operator must allocate all the bits. This is done by simply selecting bit 1. Note: The CT will select a TS of the Conference card (CONF). Digital bridge The TS of the CE/CS datastream of the Conference card must have: - at least 1 free bit for bit rates: 0.6 kbit/s, 1.2 kbit/s, 2.4 kbit/s and 4.8 kbit/s. - at least 2 consecutive free bits for the 9.6 kbit/s rate: (1,2) or (3,4) or (5,6) or (7,8). - at least 4 consecutive free bits for the 19.2 kbit/s rate: (1,2,3,4) or (5,6,7,8). - For the 64 kbit/s bit rate, the operator must allocate all the bits. This is done by simply selecting bit 1.

4.4.10 - "Date and time..." Command
The date and time serve for timing certain events (particularly alarm events). The date (Day, Month, Year) and time (Hour, Minute, Second) of the CT is automatically synchronized with the date/time of the FMX when the FMX → CT link is initiated. Likewise, any modification to the date/time setting of the FMX modifies the date/time setting of the CT. When the CT is logged on to a DCE MVMD, the CT application keeps the date/time setting of the PC. NOTE: The FMX is set according to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). Before the time is displayed, the CT converts this time into local time with respect to the time difference (hh:mm). This difference can be adjusted using the CT/Time difference option in the "?" menu (cf. § 4.8.1). Notifications sent to the CT, along with consigned data (quality and unavailability registers, events memory) are timed and dated by the FMX. Note: In the event of a break in the link with the managed FMX or closure of the network interface, the application reverts to the PC timing for the timing and dating of internal messages.

4.4.11 - "Equipment password management..." Command
The "Equipment password management..." command allows you to add, modify or delete a log-on password. Three user class levels are available: - the first level gives access to monitoring commands and display of configuration and maintenance data, but does not allow users to change the configuration data; this is the “Monitoring” class. - the second level gives access to certain FMX operating commands; users can modify configuration data except for system data (passwords, management network equipment tables, and general system parameters); this is the “Operation” class. - the third level gives access to all commands. Users can modify all the configuration data and system data, including passwords and the management network equipment tables; they can access FMX restart and reset functions. This is the “Administration” class. Commands accessible for a given user class are also accessible to higher classes. Only users in the “Administration” class can add, modify or delete passwords. If no password is defined, users have “free access” level: all commands are available, except for the reset command. The “Administration” password is always the first password added. Passwords may contain up to 8 characters (at least 4 characters). Deleting the “Administration” password deletes all other passwords that have been defined. Changes made to access rights during a session do not take effect until the next session is opened. For example, a reset is not permitted in a “no password” session, during which the user creates the “Administration” password. The reset command will only be enabled the next time a user logs on in the “Administration” user class. Note: If you forget the “Administration” password, SAGEM intervention is required.

Access:
- Select "Configuration" in the main menu bar then "Equipment password management..." in the list of commands.
