1 Installing and Starting the Terminal

1.2 Install the Windows BSC Terminal Software


You must install the terminal software according to requirements from the
Windows BSC Terminal (CD-ROM).
Installation under Windows 2000/XP.
The Windows BSC Terminal software must be installed by a logon identity that
has either the administrator or power user access rights. No other type of
user is able to install this software under Windows 2000/XP.
Every user of the BSC Terminal has his own entry.

Installation

To install the Windows BSC Terminal software:


1. Power on the PC and log on.
2. Copy the BSC Terminal software from the installation diskettes or CD-ROM
to your hard disk.
3. Double-click on del_bsxwxxyy.tar to extract bscwxxyy.zip, where:

1.3 Connect the Terminal to the BSC


The BSC terminal support Ethernet link connection:
When you open the front door of the BSC cabinet, put on the anti-static wrist
strap and connect the crocodile clip to a grounded metallic object, such as a
cabinet casing.
Ethernet Link: Open the cabinet front door and connect the Ethernet cable as
shown in the figure below.

Figure 1: Ethernet BSC Terminal Connection.

1.4 Start the Terminal Software


You do not need to connect the BSC terminal PC to the BSC before starting the
terminal software. However, once it is connected, you must exit and restart the
software to initialize the link.
There are two ways to connect the PC to the BSC, using the BSC terminal:
For a direct connection, the PC internal IP address must be set between
172.17.y.201 and 172.17.y.253 (e.g. 172.17.y.219). The subnetmask
is 255.255.0.0
Where y is:
3 if the BSC is in the lower ATCA Shelf
4 if the BSC is in the upper ATCA Shelf
For a remote connection, the PC internal IP address must be set in the
same IP class as the BSC.

2.4 Handle Reports


The BSC sends reports to the BSC terminal to acknowledge commands, and
to convey information in response to commands.
Reports can be viewed in two formats:
Compressed Report View, which provides selected information about the
event which has occurred
Full Report View, which provides full information about the event which
has occurred.
By default, reports received from the BSC are displayed in the Compressed
Report View window as they arrive. When the Realtime function is activated,
reports are displayed in the Full View Report window when received from
the BSC.
A number of full view report windows can be simultaneously displayed by
double-clicking on the compressed report. This allows comparisons to be made
between different reports.

2.4.1 Compressed View


When you first start the BSC terminal software, the Compressed Report View
window is empty, as shown in Figure 2 . As reports are received, they are
displayed in the window in summary form, as shown in the figure below.

To view a compressed report in full view, double-click on the report.


This window can be minimized or maximized, as required. It cannot be closed.

2.4.1.1 General Information


Compressed view reports comprise the following generic fields:
Number of the report
Date
Time
Report Type
Job Result.
In addition to these five fields, up to 15 Extra Info fields can be added to a report.
You can determine the type of information contained in an extra information
field by positioning the cursor on or near the field. A screen tip box indicates
the type of information in the field.

2.4.1.2 Add Extra Info Fields


To add Extra Info fields to a compressed report:
1. From the BSC Terminal menu bar, follow the menu path View -> Extra
Information
The Extra Info Settings window is displayed, as shown in the figure below.

2. Click on the Report field drop-down menu and select the required report
from the list.
Any extra information which has already been added to the report is
displayed in the appropriate Extra Info fields.

Info field to display a list of the extra information which can be added to that
particular report. Select the extra information you want to add.
4. Repeat step 3 for any other extra information you want to add to the report.

[ Use defaults ] button is enabled. To revert to the default values, click on
[ Use defaults ] .

2.4.1.4 Sort Reports


Sort the reports in the Compressed Report View window in the required order
by clicking on the column title of the appropriate field. An arrow shows in which
order and on which column the reports are sorted.
In the Extra Info columns, the sort is text based. Sorts based on date, time and
numbers are not possible in these columns. This is because of the variety of
parameter types being displayed in a particular column.

2.4.2 Full Report View


The figure below gives an example of the Report Window. It contains both the
full report view and the compressed report view in a top-bottom window split.

If a field in a report is grey, this indicates that no information for that field
was received from the BSC.

Success or failure is reported in the Job Result field of the test report. In the
case of tests applied to SBLs CPR, DTC, TCU, Link, Switch and N7, additional
Test Result information is provided at the bottom of the report.
This consists of:
Segment

Table 8: Test Raw Data Results for Link/Switch


* Test Raw Data Bytes 5 to 20 are only relevant for Test Segment Results 12
and 13 (failed TDM bus tests; see Table 6 ). The tests try to set up paths from
the tested link (Link NA) to all the ports of the switch (Switch NA). Connections
towards not-equipped or OBCI ports are not attempted.

Table 10: Test Results Format for N7
A successful job result is accompanied by the Test Segment and Test Fault
Type values shown in the above table. This means that the tests executed.
The results of the individual tests performed is indicated by the Test Raw Data
information. If all these bytes have the value HFF, there are no failures.
In the example in the above table, some bytes do not have the value HFF. This
information is decoded using Table 12 .
The decode of the example Test Raw Data information in Table 10 is shown in
the following table.
An unsuccessful job result means that the tests did not execute. In this case, all
the Test Raw Data information is set to the default value of H00.
