2.7

Network Properties: Naming the Individual Networks in a Workspace


Since one workspace can contain a number of networks, the NetCfgToolj allows you to provide
useful names to each of the networks. By default, Network-x, where x is the network number, is
assigned.
To set the network name:

1. Click on Network
Properties from the main menu
or right click anywhere in the
current Network window to
open the Network Properties
window.
2. Enter the desired name for this
workspace/network in the
Network Name box.
3. Click on [OK] button to save the
new setting.

2.8

Network Properties: Network Address and Subnet Setting


The IP addresses assigned by the NetCfgToolj to selected network depend on the assigned
Network Address and Subnet Mask in the Network Properties window.
To set the subnet of the selected network:
1. Click on Network
Properties from the main
menu or right click anywhere
in the current Network
window to open the Network
Properties window.

2. Click on Subnet category in


the Network Properties
window.
3. By default the NetCfgToolj
will utilize the private
network address 172.18.0.0 with subnet mask 255.255.254.0. This subnet allocates 512
IP addresses to the selected network. You can modify this subnet by selecting the default
subnet and clicking the [Modify] button.
Where the network was initially assigned a smaller subnet, you can add another subnet
when the IP address runs out. Click on [Add] button to assign a new subnet to the
selected network. (NOTE: A maximum number of thirty two network addresses and subnet
mask settings is possible)
** For example, network address 10.10.10.0 with subnet mask 255.255.255.192 was initially
assigned to the selected network. This means only 64 addresses are initially allocated. If
the number of NEs exceeds 62, a new subnet must be assigned to the network to allocate
new IP addresses for the new NEs

- 8-

NWD-104045

NOTE: *The maximum number of NEs per CPMC network is 416 NEs regardless to whether
more than 416 IP addresses are assigned to the network.
* The maximum number of NEs per Root NE network is 500.
This number is calculated by following formula.
Maximum number of NEs per Root NE network
=[Maximum number of subnet per Root NE network] X [Maximum number of
NEs per subnet]
The ensuing window, Network Address window, allows you to modify the default subnet by
either changing the Network Address or the Subnet mask to be used by the selected
network. You can increase or decrease the allocated IP address on the selected network
by modifying the subnet mask and the network address in this window. (Refer to
Appendix B: Subnets to see the available subnets in the managed network.)
In the example shown below, where the network
address is 172.18.0.64 with subnet mask
255.255.255.192 given to the selected network,
NetCfgToolj will allocate the IP address
172.18.0.65-126 to this network. Note that in this
example 62 IP addresses were assigned. Another
as the network address (172.18.0.64) and
another as the broadcast address (172.18.0.127). Click on [OK] to save the new subnet.
When the [Add] button was clicked in step.3, the
ensuing window enables you to define another
subnet that will be added to the existing subnet.
Click on [Add] button to save the new subnet.
(NOTE: The maximum number of network
addresses and subnet mask settings that can be
registered is 5.)
NOTE: Since IP addresses from 172.17.240.0 thru 172.17.255.255 are internally reserved
IP Addresses, those can not be assigned to any network as its Network Address.
Click on [OK] button to save the new settings.

Back-to-Back Line Color Codes


The NMS back-to-back connection between NEs varies according to the type of NEs connected,
speed, synchronization, the port used and the type of protocol used. The NetCfgToolj uses
color-coded lines to allow the network designer to distinguish the various types of connection.

The following lists the color codes used by the NetCfgToolj to represent the different
back-to-back connection types.

Black: represents the common RS-485/RS-232C/9600bps/ASYNC multi-drop line


between Pasolink, Line Concentrator, MIU and Pasolink-S NEs.

Red: represents the 64kbps/RS-422/SYNC connections between NE1 and NE1 of


Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+/Pasolink Mx (Bridge NE)/Pasolink+ STM-1 (Bridge NE) /Pasolink+
PDH (Bridge NE) NEs.

Violet: represents the RS485/19200bps/ASYNC connections NE2 and NE1 of Pasolink


Mx/Pasolink+ NEs or RS485/9600bps/ASYNC connection between Pasolink
V3/PasolinkV4/Pasolink-S/MIU and PASOLINK NEO/PASOLINK NEO CPV/PASOLINK

module can either be synchronized to a time-server with SNTP in the network or set to
None (no time synchronization). The IP address of the time-server as well as the Refresh
Interval (the time in seconds that elapses before the NE will try to synchronize its internal
clock to a specified time-server) can be set in this window.
NOTE: Please reenter the correct SNTP IP Address, when the CTRL Type in the General
category window is changed from Root NE to Root NE (Bridge) or vice- versa.

Editing IP Restriction Parameters (for Root NE [Bridge] only) of PASOLINK NEO NODAL

In network configurations where the Subnet is not supposed to be disconnected at the Root NE,
IP addresses can be preset for devices connected ahead of the Root NE in the IP Restriction
Category window (for instance: IP addresses for the PNMS computer or the router). When
configuring (Create Configuration) with NetCfgToolj, IP addresses (apart from any preregistered
ones) are automatically assigned to other devices. When Root NE (Bridge) is selected as the
CTRL Type, the IP Restriction category is displayed in the Network overview.

workspace is displayed as Network 1 in the NetCfgToolj window.
To add another CPMC cluster or group
1. Click on Network New. This will open a new workspace in the NetCfgToolj. Note that
each of the newly created workspaces has an asterisk (*) appended to its network name,
for example, Network-1*, Network-2*, etc. the asterisk will disappear once Create
Configuration is executed for this network.

2. Add new workspaces as necessary.

3. You have to separately configure (Create Configuration) each workspace/network. Select
the network that you wish to configure and then click on Tools Create Configuration.
Note: the configuration files cannot be exported until the asterisk (*) in the network name for
all of the network workspaces disappears. Therefore, Export can only be executed after
configuring (Create Configuration) each of the network workspaces.
4. The maximum number of workspaces is 500.

Appendix A: MIU Settings


To view the NE Properties for the individual MIU you have to double click on the CPMC folder of
the MIU Property Tree. This appendix will explain the naming conventions used in the PMC
setting catalogue shown below.
(2)
(1)

The name of the PMC button is comprised of two distinct parts: (1) PMC type, (2) PMC Usage. The
PMC type can either be RPMC, CPMC or SCPMC depending on the role of the PMC in the HLDC
polling.
The PMC Usage depends on the order of the PMC in the MIU and the redundancy. The table
below illustrates the PMC usage convention used in the MIU.
Total PMC
Total PMC = 1
(Line concentrator/other
equipment with no redundancy).

For N+1 configuration, the default value of the PMC Usage is
Regular CH. When adding new PMCs the user must
individually alter the PMC usage for any additional PMCs
individually in the MIU properties window.
When changing the PMC Usage a warning message will
appear. (i.e. when adding a new PMC on the existing system
the new PMC should be labeled: Additional PMC.)
Line Concentrator
RPMC Additional PMC
The additional PMCs are in a fixed sequence. When deleting a PMC, the NetCfgToolj will first delete
the last PMC to have been added. This means you cannot add an additional PMC without deleting the
PMCs below it first.

Appendix C: Configuration of Dual Master MIU


At MIU (Line Concentrator) two ports, NMS port and DPU port are available. By default
NetCfgToolj assigns NMS port for the line connection, when the Back-to-Back (BB) line is added.
Please use the Line Properties dialog box to change the port selection. Note that in the dual
master configuration, only 1 port can be assigned to NMS and 1 other port needs to be assigned
to DPU. Otherwise, errors may occur when you run Create Configuration.
Configuration of dual master MIU is described (as illustrated in the example):
DPU
NMS

1. As illustrated in the figure below, place all the


NE symbols in the workspace first, connect
them with MIU using BB line.

2. As shown in the figure above the


connections from No.002 and No.007
to No.001 are both assigned to NMS
port. You need to use the Line
Properties dialog box to convert one of
the NMS ports into a DPU port as
illustrated in the figure below.

3. After the line properties are modified, MIU


(No.001) will be assigned with 1 NMS port
and 1 DPU port. Configuring (Create
Configuration) will then be possible.

NWD-104045

Appendix D: Incorrect Configuration of MIU (Line Concentrator)


Setting up MIU (Line Concentrator) in a Multi-Drop configuration, please use DPU port on the
Master side of the Multi-Drop connection. This is due to the MIU hardware limitations.
1. As illustrated in the figure below, since DPU port is assigned on the Master side of the
Multi-Drop, this is a correct configuration and configuring (Create Configuration) would
be possible.

Appendix E: Incorrect Configuration of Pasolink Mx / Pasolink+


The following configuration is not possible in a mixed network of Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ and
PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU NEs, when Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ NEs are placed close to
the PNMS, and are followed by PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU.
1. Otherwise errors may occur during configuring (Create Configuration) due to the ASYNC
(19.2kbps) IC limitation of the Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+.
As illustrated in the example below, No.007 (Pasolink+) is connected to No.009 (Pasolink
V3). No.009 becomes CPM, and its connection with No.007 (Pasolink+) is assigned to use
PPP Protocol (19.2 kbps); however, the Pasolink+, No.005 and No.007 connection uses
HDLC Protocol (19.2 kbps). As a result, in the No.007, a ASYNC (19.2kbps) IC is required
to serve two different protocols, which is not possible.
Instead, SYNC (64kbps) IC is used for the connection.

HDLC
19.2 kbps
PPP

3. After the line properties are modified, the configuration will be shown as below and
configuring (Create Configuration) will then be possible.

Appendix F: NMS Port Setting of MIU (Line Concentrator / Hop)


If an MIU (Line Concentrator or Hop type) is included in your system configuration, please confirm
the following points related to MIU setting.
1. When the MIU (Line Concentrator or Hop type) is connected as a PASOLINK+ or
PASOLINK Mx multi-drop connection, please confirm that the NMS port is set for each MIU,
for example, the connection of No.003 and No.004 in Pattern 1 or No.003 and No.005 in
Pattern2.
<Pattern 1>

NE2

<Pattern 2>

NMS

NE2

NMS

2. Confirm that Connect Port of each MIU is set to NMS by opening Line Properties
between No.003 and No.004 in Pattern 1 or between No.003 and No.005 in Pattern 2.

- 196 -

NWD-104045
3. In the above example, please confirm that both MIUs do not have the same NMS Port
setting, by opening the Port category in NE Properties. If they are set to the same mode
please reset the NMS Port mode for the CPM by selecting the Manual mode in the
Mode Auto Assign setting from the Port category in NE Properties, so that the NMS
Ports of both MIUs can communicate by connecting them with a straight cable.

Note: When a 2 system (NE) type MIU is used in the above configuration, please be sure that
the Connect Port setting for both NEs is NMS and that the Mode setting of one NMS
Port is RS485_TX and the other is RS485_RX or vice versa. If the same mode is set
to both NMS Ports, the NMS Ports cannot communicate, because the NMS Ports for
both NEs are internally connected by straight cable.

Appendix G: Incorrect Configuration of Pasolink NEO / Pasolink Mx (Bridge NE) /


Pasolink+ STM-1 (Bridge NE) / Pasolink+ PDH (Bridge NE) (No.1)
A hub must be used when Pasolink NEO is to be connected to two (or more) NE(Bridge NE) in a
network configuration where both Pasolink NEO and Pasolink Mx(Bridge
NE)/Pasolink+STM-1(Bridge NE)/Pasolink+PDH(Bridge NE) coexist.
1.

Without a hub link between Pasolink NEO and Pasolink+ NE, the Create Configuration
feature cannot function properly.
The following diagram shows such a case: No.005 (Pasolink NEO) is connected to No.003
(Pasolink Mx [Bridge NE]), and No.007 (Pasolink Mx [Bridge NE]). Since No. 003 is
connected to No. 005 via the EM1 connecting port and No. 007 is connected via the EM2, if
a hub were not used, a LAN connection with cross-cables would be necessary. Since, this is
not technically possible there is no other alternative to using a hub.

When a hub is used for the Back-to-Back connection of NE, it is necessary to extend two or more
connected lines from NE on the side near PNMS, and to connect it with other NE.
1. Otherwise, the Create Configuration feature cannot function properly.
When a hub is used as in the following example linking No.002, (Pasolink NEO), No.004,
(Pasolink NEO) and No.005 (Pasolink NEO), it is not possible to extend two or more
connected lines from No.002 (Pasolink NEO).

Appendix I: Incorrect Configuration of Pasolink NEO


When Pasolink NEO is connected with PNMS, it is not possible to have a network configuration
where NE are connected via the EM1 port to others (e.g. Pasolink NEO or Pasolink+).
1. Otherwise, (due to the Pasolink NEO connecting port EM1
being used) the Create Configuration feature cannot
function properly.
As can be seen from the example below, No.001
(Pasolink NEO) being connected to PNMS would be the
Root NE, and also No.001 being connected to No.003
(Pasolink NEO) via its EM1 port. This would require that
No.001which be connected to PNMS and No.003 via one
and the same port (EM1), which is technically impossible.
Therefore, it would be necessary to use a different
connecting port (EM2).

No.001

EM1

2. Use the Line Properties dialog box to change the port via which No.001 is connected with
No.003. Please change the port of No.001 from (EM1") to ("EM2").

Rewire the actual connections for each respective actual NE wherever Async cable is
replaced by LAN cable in Tools-Create Configuration of NetConfigToolj.
In the following examples, when changing NEs to Bridge NE mode, the back-to-back
connecting cables between the NEs in the red circle (No.003, No.005, and No.007) are
automatically changed from Async to LAN cable and the connecting port is changed
from NE1/NE2 to LAN.
Proceed to the respective NE locations and change the connecting line from Async to
LAN cable and the connecting port to LAN.
Note: Since the LAN port only has one outlet, a repeater hub should be used for
Back-to-Back connection to two or more NEs.
Since, the Sync cable can be used as is, there is no need to change to LAN cable.

(2) Rewire the actual connections for each respective actual NE wherever Sync cable is
replaced by LAN cable in Tools-Create Configuration of NetConfigToolj.
In the following examples, when changing NEs to NEO, the back-to-back connecting
cables between the NEs in the red circle (No.002 and No.003) are automatically
changed from Sync to LAN cable and the connecting port is changed from NE1 to EM1
(NMS) / EM2 (NE).
Proceed to the respective NE locations and change the connecting line from Sync to
LAN cable and the connecting port to EM1 (NMS) / EM2 (NE).
Note: Use repeater hub connection when the Back-to-Back connecting line from NEO
connects to two or more NEs (i.e. Bridge NE mode NE).

(4) Using the PNMTj Reset feature, reset the CPU for each of the respective NE from step
(3).
Note: When resetting, be sure that the ROM (Program) switching checkbox is checked.

(5)

Using the PNMTj Version display feature, verify that the Pasolink versions of the
downloaded NE are correct.

(6) Using the PNMTj Download feature, download the PMC network configuration file (*.cfg)
that was updated using NetConfigToolj.

Note: Every NE whose file name is displayed in the Changed Configuration file (s)
column of the NetConfigToolj Changed NEs List is subject to said downloading of
Network configuration file (*.cfg).

Appendix L: Restrictions and limitations of PASOLINK NEO NODAL


1. Interconnecting IDUs
- All IDU fixed line interconnections must be EM2 (NE) to EM 1 (NMS).
For instance, in a four IDU configuration, EM1 and EM2 are used for NEO NODAL
Group Interconnections and are thus not available; but, EM1 of the top IDU and EM2 of the
bottom (end) IDU are available to be used.
available

This red line is only for illustration purposes.


(it does not actually appear on the screen)

available

The following example shows intermediate IDU #3 when it is E1-Tributary Only.


E1-Tributary Only IDU does not have Port as Radio. Moreover, no Port is available to
be used, since, both EM1 and EM2 are already in use. Therefore, there is no Port
configuration for IDU3.

In this example, IDU#3 and IDU#4


are E1 Tributary Onlyconfiguration.

2. Connecting PNMS Line to NODAL Group
- The PNMS Line can only be connected to IDU#1for the Create Configuration tool to
function properly (in-feed only possible via top IDU).

3. Ring configuration is not permitted


- The following ring configuration is not permitted.

NWD-104045

4. Connecting to a NODAL Group comprising only a single IDU


Because the PNMS Line would be connected to the NODAL EM2, the Create Configuration
tool will not function properly
