Note: A3T3:45Mb/s Access Card
4 In case of 45Mb/s interface, a further configuration is needed, compared with 34Mb/s
interface, due to the fact that a different approach is specified for DS3 in the American
standard.
4 In fact, in case of DS3, the central Office cable must be equalized at transmit side, by doing
the appropriate pre-setting, through the Craft Terminal, in order to maintain constant
reference level at the Distribution Frame.
4 The Port card P3E3/T3 is the same for 34 and 45 Mb/s.
T3-63
4 The Access card (A3E3 or A3T3) is different for 34 Mb/s (E3) and 45 Mb/s (T3), due to this
fact the DS3 (45) interface must be equalized at transmit side by inserting the appropriate
LBON (Line Built Out Network).

The Network Address of the NE: this address must be selected in agreement with Alcatel, or in any case, with the
responsible Authority for the DCN.
Intermediate System type : L1 or L2 are selected according to the network partitioning into areas. Select L2 only
for a Gateway NE which communicates with OS located in a different Network Area. All NEs inside the same
area are L1. This configuration is not mandatory. It is only useful to speed-up the OSI protocol routing.
OSI Stack Selectors keys (Presentation, Session and Transport Selectors) : these are usually fixed and they are
only used by protocol specialists, to optimize OSI protocol processing in complex network.
Notes:
Up to 3 different Network Addresses can be assigned to the same NE.

interested by the command
T3-148
ALCATEL
1660SM
Notes: Protection State & Commands
The protection events can be equipment/signal failure, signal degrade or external command or a
combination of them.
The "Events" will be served if some actions (B/S=bridges and switches) are executed and the network
has been updated.
The "Events" will be signaled if the K1/K2 protocol communicates to the network nodes what has
happened, without execute actions.
A single ring failure is completely restored but not two ring failures. When are present multiple ring
failures the automatic B/S protection will try to maintain on all the possible connections.
T3-149
The K1/K2 communication protocol MS-SPRing is generated from the two nodes adjacent to
"Event" via the protection communication channels.
A node is defined tail-end when it firstly receives the "Event", the second node is defined head-
end when it receives back the protocol answer.
ALCATEL
1660SM
Protection State & Commands:lockout
If the node is tail-end,
the lockout working ring command disable the protection MS-SPRing mechanisms,
if the node is head-end,
the lockout working ring serves the request node protection (protection not disable).
the lockout working ring command failure and a ring failure along a different section, the ring protection is served
(protection not disable).

The Force command executes a forced protection. The Force Ring command substitutes the working channels (AU4 1
to 8) with the opposite direction protection channels (AU4 9 to 16) between two adjacent nodes.
NOTE:The Force Span command is not operative in 2 fiber MS-SPring.
The Manual command is similar to Force command but it is at a lower priority level with respect to automatic MS-
SPRing. The general priority scale (if you give the command on the same port):
lockout Protecting Span.

Notes:forced & manual
When a force ring command is applied a next working failure is not able to modify the forced configuration applied.
That is because force ring command has a higher priority respect to the "Automatic" working protection. In this
condition the ring can be split according the location of command and event.
Vice versa the "Manual" protection is exceeded by the "Automatic" protection. FS-R is for "Force Switching

4 The described rules have to be remembered by heart, to avoid waste of time.
Remember that: the matrix has 96 ports, referred to bulk Au4s (HPC) and 64 ports referred to
structured VC4s (LPC).Only the LPC ports are displayed in the CxC Management window; e.g.:
no matrix port is displayed when cross/connecting Au4 to Au4.
The Matrix automatically selects the VC4 port to be connected to an Au4, when the AU4 is
Terminated:
1 port is occupied when a P63E1(or P3E3) is configured (warning!: this is the port #1
only at the beginning, if it is the first time the equipment is configured)
T3-183
1 port is occupied when a P3E3 is configured
The other ports are occupied in sequence while implementing CxCs...
4 When an Au4 (or a VC4) is Terminated, it means that it is structured till Tu3: this is
represented as a cross-connection between Au4 and VC4.
4 But!: if the Au4 was previously configured with VC12: then Terminate TP means also
Structure TP ! (make some trials to understand!)

Notes:Terminating AU4
The Objective of this procedure is: to connect a 2 Mb/s port to an STM16 interface. This is the
operation which is usually done to drop/insert a PDH signal from an SDH stream.
In this example it is assumed that the cross-connection is bidirectional and not protected.
Procedure is quite similar in case of monodirectional or protected cross-connection and it is carried out
in two steps:
Configure a Tu12 held into an Au4 as cross-connection input;
Configure a VC12 as cross-connection output (or viceversa)

Warning! The first time that an Au4 is terminated, it is structured till Tug3 ( and till Tu3) only . It is
then necessary to Structure TP to get Tu12.
If VC4 was previously structured till Tu12 in the NE, the EC remembers this configuration and the
VC4 is automatically structured till Tu12 when selecting Terminate TP. To eliminate Tu12 structure:

Notes: Alarms on Cross-connections
Typical situations with a wrong cross-connection are:
SSF at Vc-n level
AIS detected on an external instrument.
Typical alarm when a Cross-connection is not correctly working is SSF, in Port View: this alarm is
usually caused by a wrong cross-connection or, unlikely, by HW failure. This alarm is also active if
Unequipped is received in the Signal Label from the remote Node.
SSF causes AIS on the PDH port. Note: this AIS is usually detected by an external instrument only; it is
detected in the port view only for framed 2Mb/s incoming signal.
The example shows the Transmission View window in case of cross-connection from VC12 to AU4;
T3-233
Warning!: to display the alarm, the correct alarm severity table must be setup for the AU4 block .
Some severity tables do not display the alarm for AU-AIS.
The example shows the Transmission View window in case of cross-connection from VC12 to AU4;
the window is opened from Port View window by selecting: Navigate to Transmission View, after
selecting a VC4;
In the example:the cross-connection is not operating due to a failure alarm at AU4 server layer: this
alarm should cause also SSF at VC4 and at VC12 (in the Port view windows).
Further details on alarms can be displayed by selecting a TP an then selecting Port /Navigate to Port

OH Cross Connection: general
4 The following sequence of operations has to be done in order to configure the cross-
connections for OH channels:
41.st step: Create the OH TPs on which you want to operate. The OH TP are the OH
byes used to transmit the auxiliary channels. Use Overhaed / OH TP Creation menu
option for that and find the desired OH bytes in the TP Search window, with the title:
Search OH TP to be created
T3-262
42.nd step: configure the EOW, if it is used. Use Overhead /OH Phone Parameters
menu option for that.Configuration consists in enabling /disabling the EOW extension
and in defining the phone number.
43.rd step: create the cross/connections between two OH TPs or between an OH TP and
the EOWconnector.
ALCATEL
1660SM
Notes:OH Cross Connection
4 An auxiliary channel can be transmitted on any of the available OH bytes, that are displayed
in the TP Search window, opened by Create /Choose commands.
4 After executing the cross-connection between the EOW external connector and an OH byte,
the call is setup by the following operations:
4Connect the handset in the front of SERVICE;
4Do the Attach, by switching on the handset: a green lamp is switched on (on bottom-left
in the front panel of the SERVICE) both on local and distant station;

OVERHEAD MANAGEMENT
4 OH Cross Connection menu option allows to handle the operations on the Overhead (OH)
bytes of the NE.
4 The possible operations are:
Overhead crossconnection,i.e.:
Crossconnection between 2 or more OH bytes,
T3-265
Crossconnection between 2 or more OH bytes,
Termination of an OH byte onto an auxiliary port or vocal channel,
Total Passthrough of the MSOH bytes for some cards,
Definition of the Phone Parameters
4 There is a TP associated to every OH byte and to every auxiliary port, so TP could be used
instead of OH bytes or auxiliary port, depending on the context.
