Alarm Management

The Alarms menu allows checking the status of the equipment alarms and detecting the cause of a possible wrong operation.

The failure and the failure processing are differentiated in 4 failure classes:

communication problems related to the ports, to the modem and to the Tx power (INTERFACES ALARMS)

synchronization problems (SYNCHRONIZATION ALARMS) problems related to the software (SOFTWARE ALARMS) equipment failures (WHOLE ODU ALARMS)

2.1 Alarms Severity

Five severity levels are foreseen in order to classify the alarms:

Critical Major Minor Warning Indeterminate

Loopbacks

The loopbacks are available only in 1+0 configuration:

LL4: used to test cable connectivity. LL4 can be enabled for a time T (user configurable with granularity in seconds), before being automatically disabled by P.

LL1: RF loopback. LsRL3 (in the local station) and RL3 (in the remote station): these 2 loopbacks can be used to test the radio link.

Measurement Management

The Measurements menu provides the following options:

Port Counters: Measurements on the Ethernet traffic interface

RF & Others: Reading of the RF Tx - Rx power, number of synchronization switch, LLDP summary.

Page29

Port Counters

The Port Counters menu allows to display the statistics information relevant to the 3 ports of the internal Ethernet switch.

Performance Management

Three types of performance are available:

RSPI Performance ACM Performance Ethernet Performance

The system foresees two measuring intervals for the performance data:

interval of quarters of an hour interval of 24 hours.

Page39

RSPI Performance

RSPI (Radio Section Physical Interface) performances are parameters allowing estimates and statistics on the RF transmission.

The parameters are reported in the table.

It is possible to set up to 4 different thresholds for the RF Rx power (RLT Threshold) and 2 threshold for the RF Tx (TLT Threshold).

Page40

Setting of the RSPI Parameters

Open the PM Setting sub-menu in the Performance menu.

The Performance Setting window allows setting the values of the measurement of the RSPI performance:

TLT1 = Tx Level Threshold #1 TLT2 = Tx Level Threshold #2 RLT1 = Rx Level Threshold #1 RLT2 = Rx Level Threshold #2 RLT3 = Rx Level Threshold #3 RLT4 = Rx Level Threshold #4
Page41

Displaying of the RSPI Parameters

Open the PM View. Click on Quarter for the 15 performance and Day for the 24 hours performance.

Software Upgrade

From WebLCT, the build software can be upgraded without any interruption on the operation.

The upgrade procedure uploads the software build on the standby bank; the system keeps running the pre-existing software on the active bank.

To make active the new build software, it is necessary to execute the switching of the banks. The switching operation runs the new version of the software.

7.4 Networking Parameter Change in the Single Cable Configurations

The new parameters can be made available in different ways:

HW Reset of the Direct_connected ODU, Disabling/Enabling of ACCM Timer and Disabling/Enablin MAC Learning in Direct Connected ODU

Topology change (disconnect and reconnect the ODU-ODU cable or connect/disconnect the GbE cable of Co-located ODU)

Page61

Networking Parameter Change in the Single Cable Configurations

Disable the Transfer IP Address to colocated ODU functionality as shown in the figure, before to run the commands on port 23001 and do not re-enable it.

Support for Target ID Swap

Target IDs can be swapped only if:

Hardware is broken and a replacement license key is needed in new HW. A wrong target ID has been used.

Only license type that can be swapped is: license & standard key, if a reason for SWAP is met.

Page69

Support for Target ID Swap

By pressing the LAC/Serial number link . user is directed to Detailed LK information. User can navigate also from there to the SWAP target IDs.
