Configuring RPR Services on a Per-NE Basis

About This Chapter
When configuring RPR services on a per-NE basis, you can specify the timeslot and route for services on an individual NE basis. But, this method is of low efficiency. If the T2000 has the license for the end-to-end configuration function, it is recommended to use the end-to-end configuration function to configure services. 16.1 RPR Ring Network Resilient packet ring (RPR) is a MAC layer technology designed for a two-fiber ring topology. RPR is used to transmit data services in an effective and reliable manner. 16.2 Configuring RPR Ring You can configure RPR. 16.3 Configuring RPR EVPL Services You can configure EVPL services in an RPR ring network. 16.4 Configuring RPR EVPLAN Services You can configure EVPLAN services in an RPR ring network.

Currently. and the thin line indicates the protection route. which lessens frame loss when a fault occurs. wrapping is automatically performed on the node near the failure point. Wrapping has a short response time. The 16-2 Huawei Technologies Proprietary Issue 01 (2007-09-15) . Figure 16-1 Traffic flow before a fibre cut Figure 16-2 Traffic flow after a fibre cut Steering When a fault occurs somewhere on the ring. That is. The thick line indicates the normal route. the three protection modes for an RPR ring network are as follows: l l l Wrapping Steering Wrapping and steering Wrapping When a fault occurs on the ring.1 RPR Ring Network Resilient packet ring (RPR) is a MAC layer technology designed for a two-fiber ring topology. RPR is used to transmit data services in an effective and reliable manner. Ring 0 and Ring 1 are connected. the protection information including the failure point and fault type is sent to each node.16 Configuring RPR Services on a Per-NE Basis OptiX iManager T2000 Operation Guide for SDH 16. but occupies more bandwidth. and the topology also changes correspondingly. Figure 16-1 and Figure 16-2 illustrate the situations before a fiber cut and after wrapping is performed.

it takes a longer time to trigger the switching process. Figure 16-3 and Figure 16-4 illustrate the situations before a fiber cut and after steering is performed. Figure 16-3 Traffic flow before a fibre cut Figure 16-4 Traffic flow after a fibre cut Wrapping and Steering Wrapping triggers the switching process in a short time. and the thin line indicates the protection route. However. 16. Hence. the time during which services are interrupted is less than or equal to 50ms. wrapping is first performed to avoid loss of packets. more ring bandwidth is required for this protection mode. In this way. However. Issue 01 (2007-09-15) Huawei Technologies Proprietary 16-3 . and a new route needs to be decided according to the new topology after the topology becomes stable. The thick line indicates the normal route. But. and steering is then performed after the topology becomes stable. In this process. and a new route needs to be decided according to the new topology after the topology becomes stable.2 Configuring RPR Ring You can configure RPR. loss of frame can be effectively prevented after a fault occurs. it takes a longer time to trigger the switching process.OptiX iManager T2000 Operation Guide for SDH 16 Configuring RPR Services on a Per-NE Basis source node only needs to send data to the destination node according to the new topology. The small part of data that has been sent is discarded at the failure point. Steering effectively improves the utilization of ring bandwidth and allows signals to be transmitted on the best route. Steering effectively improves utilization of ring bandwidth and allows signals to be transmitted on the best route.
