Chapter 1

Traditional SDH Service
Networking Configuration

This chapter describes the configuration flow of establishing a transmission
network with ZXONM E300. In addition, an example of SDH service
networking is included to describe the operation steps and methods.

Configuration Flow
The networking configuration with ZXONM E300 has two typical flows
according to whether the NEs are online or offline.

Note:
S Online status indicates that the NE configuration commands are sent at real-
time to the NCP board, and then are forwarded to the corresponding board by NCP
board.
S Offline status indicates that the NE configuration commands are only saved in
the EMS database and are not sent to the NCP board, since the NE is offline.

S Networking flow of online NEs
The networking flow of online NEs is listed in Table 4.

Note: Some other configurations may need to be performed in the EMS
according to actual networking requirement and equipment type:
S If the network needs MS protection, configure MS protection before configuring
timeslots.
S If the network needs Ethernet or ATM service, configure them. For detailed
configuration, refer to Chapter 3 and Chapter 4.
S If the equipment has special requirement for configuration, e.g. ZXMP S330
needs 1:N protection for boards, make corresponding configurations in EMS via
selecting Maintenance -> Diagnosis -> Setting 1:N Card Switching.

6 Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION
Chapter 1 - Traditional SDH Service Networking Configuration

S If EMS manages the transmission equipment by Data Communication Network
(DCN), the gateway NE can be employed to establish the communication
relationship between EMS and the managed equipment. For detailed operations,
refer to Configure Gateway NE in Chapter 5.

Configuration Example
In this section, you will learn about the configuration of traditional SDH
services with a networking example for offline network elements.

Ethernet Service
Configuration

This chapter introduces the configuration flow of ZXONM E300 for the
transmission of Ethernet services through SDH equipment. In addition, the
detailed configuration procedures of VLAN services are described based on
a network example composed of ZXMP S320 equipment with SFE4 boards.

Configuration of Ethernet Service
Transparent Transmission
The transparent transmission of Ethernet service is performed by the
transparent transmission Ethernet boards. These boards provide paths for
point-to-point transparent transmission, and bind user ports with VCG
(EOS) ports (i.e. system ports) in a one-to-one way. Data frames are only
forwarded between the user port and the VCG port bound together.

The equipment and boards that support transparent transmission of
Ethernet service are described in Table 29.

TFE board of ZXMP S200 is responsible for managing the Ethernet function
of physical board SMB and the Ethernet plug-in boards. The physical board
SMB can process 8 Ethernet services which can be performed by 4x10/100
M transparent transmission Ethernet electrical ports on the SMB board and
another 4 Ethernet ports on SEC board, TFEX4 board or TFEX4B board.
Among these boards,

SEC provides 4x10/100 M Ethernet electrical ports (layer 2 switching
supported). TFEx4 provides 4 10/100 M transparent transmission Ethernet
electrical ports. TFEx4B provides 4 100 M transparent transmission
Ethernet optical ports.

TFEx4 and TFEx4B are set in the slot of subrack (slot No. is 11 on EMS).
However, it is no necessary to configure the board on the EMS manually
because the EMS can set the “TFE INTERFACE” board in slot 11
automatically based on the version of software and hardware of TFE.

The user ports of SFE series boards are 10/100 M Ethernet interfaces, and
those of SGE series boards are 1000 M Ethernet optical interfaces. Except
the SFE board of ZXMP S330, “B” in the board ID indicates that the user
ports are optical; otherwise, the user ports are electrical.

The user ports of SFE board in ZXMP S330 and ZXMP S325 support both
10/100 M Ethernet optical interfaces and 10/100 M Ethernet electrical
interfaces. In EMS, these two kinds of Ethernet interfaces are identified by
the software and hardware version, where “0310” represents for SFE
electrical interface board, and “1310” represents for SFE optical interface
board.

The system ports of SFE/SGE series boards adopt the TU12 virtual
concatenation. Each system port has the minimum granularity of 2 M and
the maximum granularity of 100 M.

Currently, SFE/SGE series boards go out of production

attribute of RPR service for the VLAN classified in step 3 in the pop-
up dialog box.
The RPR traffic is classified into three types depending on the QoS:
type A, B, and C, with priorities of A>B>C.
¾ Type A
Auxiliary parameters: Max BW and Reserved BW, where BW
refers to bandwidth.
The traffic of type A shares the reserved bandwidth in RPR ring.
Even in case of idleness, this bandwidth cannot be occupied by
traffic of other types. If type A traffic exceeds the upper limit of the
bandwidth, all of them will be discarded. It is not controlled by the
fairness algorithm, and has invariable rates. The delay and jitter
effect on them is the smallest.
It is applicable to analog Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) traffic.
¾ Type B
Auxiliary parameters: Max BW and Min BW, where BW refers to
bandwidth.
Type B traffic is classified into B-type CIR traffic and B-type EIR
traffic.
The B-type CIR traffic occupies guaranteed bandwidth and are not
controlled by the fairness algorithm. When the bandwidth is idle, it
can be occupied by other traffic.
The B-type EIR traffic occupies bandwidth between the limited
bandwidth and the guaranteed bandwidth, which can be shared
with other nodes, and it is controlled by the fairness algorithm.
It is applicable to traffic which is insensitive to delay but requires
bandwidth guarantee. For example, some data traffic with high
requirement can occupy more bandwidth when there is idle
bandwidth.
¾ Type C
Auxiliary parameters: Max BW, where BW refers to bandwidth.
The traffic of type C is processed in an attempt, which has no
bandwidth guarantee and is controlled by the fairness algorithm.
When the traffic exceeds the bandwidth limit, it will be discarded
completely. It has a large delay and jitter.
It is applicable to data services with lower requirements.

Note: One VLAN can only have one traffic type, and different VLANs can
have identical traffic type.

ii. Select a node in the RPR ring and the menu item Device Config ->

forcedly.
Generally, the manual selection mode is applied to the traffic of
type C which has no requirement for the guarantee bandwidth, so
as to obtain the maximum network bandwidth.

Note: When steering protection occurs in the RPR ring network, manual
selection is disabled automatically to avoid traffic interruption.

iv. Set the MAC address of a static destination site
By default, the RSEB board learns RPR address and MAC address
automatically.

Note: With the static MAC address adopted, RPR traffic can only be
transmitted among the designated MAC addresses in the RPR ring network without
RPR exchange. It is usually applicable to the point-to-point traffic.

Configuring MPLS Ethernet
Service
[Introduction]

MPLS Ethernet processing board is employed in access layer or
convergence layer of Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). The Ethernet
message is processed via the flow method. The board supports multi
switch method including MPLS, VLAN, etc., meanwhile, provides virtual
bridge function and guarantees the quality of point to point service. Hence,
it is one of the important boards to construct virtual private line (VPL) and
virtual private network (VPN). The SE boards are listed in Table 51.

S MSE board divides into MSEA and MSEB. MSEA supports Ethernet
Virtual Private LAN (EVPLAN) but MSEB does not support EVPLAN. In
EMS, select software/hardware version to differentiate MSE and FE
interface types whose configurations are similar.

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION 105
ZXM10 5.2 Operation Guide

S User port can be configured as user Ethernet port or MPLS Ethernet
port via EMS. User Ethernet port of this board, which is same with
those of other boards, is used to access Ethernet service; MPLS
Ethernet port is used to access Ethernet service carrying with MPLS
label.
S VCG port can be configured as VCG (EOS) port or VCG (GFP MPLS)
port. VCG (EOS) port, which is same with those of other boards, is
used to connect with SDH side; VCG (GFP MPLS) port is used to
connect with the Ethernet service carrying with MPLS label. The service
path is VCG path, and the message format is GFP+MPLS label+ Normal
Ethernet Message.
MPLS Ethernet processing board accesses or converges the distributed
service to the trunk network or backbone network, then classifies the
service by flow, identifies the object address, controls the speed,
schedules and shapes the service. Following, transports the service by
Ethernet port or by the SONET/SDH ports after encapsulated via
GFP/HDLC/X.86 protocol.

MSEA board supports EVPLAN, Ethernet Private Line (EPL) and Ethernet
Virtual Private Line (EVPL). MSEB board supports EPL and EVPL.
Hereinafter, MSE represents MSEA and MSEB.

Configuring EPL Service
EPL is a point to point service which transparently transports Ethernet
service from point to point, does not perform layer 2 switch and self-study
MAC address. EPL service of each user is carried via private SDH path,
which indicates the user occupies the bandwidth of its SDH path alone.

EPL service is configured on MSE board by configuring the two ports of
MSE board in pair; therefore, the service is transparently transported
between the two ports.

[Steps]

1. Installing the board

Double-click the NE icon in the client operation window to open the
Card Management dialog box. Then, install necessary functional
boards, optical line board and MSE board which can add/drop Ethernet
traffic.

Note:
S The software/hardware version cannot be modified in the Card property
dialog box unless the Presetting has been selected. Therefore, make sure to
check the Presetting check box.
S The version of software/hardware should be consistent; the corresponding
relations with the actual board are listed in Table 51.

Configuring EVPL Service
EVPL is a point to point service. The difference from EPL is that different
users can share the link bandwidth. MSE board adopts MPLS L2 VPN to
achieve the EVPL service which means to establish a simulative service
between different MSE boards in one VPN. Each MSE board which is also
called Virtual Forwarded Instance (VFI) is a node in the VPN. The VFI does
not support L2 switch and self-study MAC address, that is, the Ethernet
service enters into the Label Switched Path (LSP) directly.
