IPCLK1000
User Guide 1 Overview of the IPCLK1000

1.1 Introduction to Clock over IP


With the development of IP networks, IP transport is applied to most communications
networks. The IP network, however, is an asynchronous transport network. The equipment on
an IP network fails to extract clock signals from the physical links. Therefore, a new way of
clock acquisition is required for the network equipment.
As a low-cost IP clock solution, clock over IP serves mainly the base stations that do not
require strict time synchronization. These base stations can be the NodeB or Access Point (AP)
in a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) network, the Base Transceiver
Station (BTS) in a Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) network or Access Poin
(AP) in a UMTS Boardband (uBro) network.
Clock over IP is implemented by the IP clock server and IP clock client. The IP clock server
obtains clock signals from a clock device, such as a Global Positioning System (GPS) or
Building Integrated Timing Supply System (BITS) device. After local phase lock and hold,
the server transmits IP packets through an IP network to the IP clock client, that is, a NodeB
or an AP in a WCDMA network, a BTS in a GSM network or an AP in an uBro network. In
this way, the server provides the client with a synchronization clock that has the hold
characteristics.

1.2 Introduction to the IPCLK1000


1.2.1 Position of the IPCLK1000 in the Network
The IPCLK1000 is developed by Huawei. It mainly acts as the IP clock server for IP transport
in a WCDMA, GSM or uBro network. The IPCLK1000 provides a clock for the base stations
to which clock sources are unavailable. The introduction of the IPCLK1000 does not affect
the architecture of the network.
IPCLK1000 V200R002 supports both Huawei private protocol and the IEEE1588 V protocol.
This section takes the IPCLK1000 in a WCDMA network for example. Figure 1-1 shows the
position of the IPCLK1000 in the WCDMA network.

IPCLK1000

When some equipment in an IP network is unable to extract IP clock packets, the IPCLK1000
can also serve as the IP clock client on that equipment side.

Unless otherwise stated, this document assumes that the IPCLK1000 acts as the IP clock server.

1.2.2 Network Security


To provide clock to the AP, the IPCLK1000 sends the clock to the AP through the IPSec
tunnel. The IPSec tunnel applies security policies to the communication between the
IPCLK1000 and the AP. To relieve the load in the IPSec tunnel, IEEE1588 V2 control
messages and signaling messages are transmitted over the IPSec tunnel while the event
messages are transmitted over the public network. Thus, the AP must be configured with two
IP addresses corresponding to the IPCLK1000, that is, a private IP address at the mobile core
network and a public IP address. The private IP address is used by the AP and the IPCLC1000
to transmit signaling and control messages in the IPSec tunnel, and the public IP address is
used by the AP and the IPCLK1000 to transmit the event messages over the public network.

The communication between the IPCLK1000 and the NodeB does not have specific requirement on the
network security.

1.2.3 Features of the IPCLK1000


The IPCLK1000 has the following features:
z Supports multiple clock source inputs.
z Provides clock source outputs for other devices.
z Supports multiple clock source switching methods.
z Sends IP packets as scheduled to IP clock clients for time synchronization.

1-2 Huawei Technologies Proprietary Issue 04 (2009-09-20)


IPCLK1000
User Guide 1 Overview of the IPCLK1000

z Is able to act as the IP clock client as required.


z Supports Operation and Maintenance (OM) on the Local Maintenance Terminal (LMT)
or M2000.
z Supports clock packet capture
z Supports clock packet statistics

1.3 Clock Signal Processing


1.3.1 Input and Output of Clock Signals
Clock Source Input
The IPCLK1000 supports the following types of clock source:
z BITS clock
z External 8 kHz clock, which is a standard 8 kHz clock provided by an external device
z External 1 Pulse Per Second (PPS) clock
z GPS or Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) clock

The IPCLK1000 can use its built-in satellite card to obtain synchronization clock signals.

The BITS clock is categorized into the following types:


z Two 2.048 MHz or 1.544 MHz unbalanced clock inputs
z Two 2.048 Mbit/s or 1.544 Mbit/s unbalanced clock inputs
z Two 2.048 MHz or 1.544 MHz balanced clock inputs
z Two 2.048 Mbit/s or 1.544 Mbit/s balanced clock inputs

Clock Signal Output


The IPCLK1000 can provide lower-level devices with clock signals whose frequency
variation is less than 50 parts per billion (ppb). The output clock can be configured to be
10 MHz or 2.048 MHz.
In addition, for easy recognition of whether the 2.048 Mbit/s or 1.544 Mbit/s clock source is
compatible with the IPCLK1000, the 2.048 Mbit/s or 1.544 Mbit/s clock signals can be
converted into 2.048 MHz or 1.544 MHz clock signals inside the IPCLK1000. The converted
clock signals are further exported to the output ports, so as to facilitate verification of the
clock sources.

1.3.2 Switching Between Clock Sources


After clock sources are set, the IPCLK1000 can use one clock source as the current clock
source input. The IPCLK1000 supports three modes for clock source switching: free, manual,
and auto.
z Free: The IPCLK1000 uses the free-run clock signals generated by the internal oscillator
as the clock source input.
z Manual: The input clock signals at a specific port are manually set to be the clock source
input.

Issue 04 (2009-09-20) Huawei Technologies Proprietary 1-3


IPCLK1000
User Guide 1 Overview of the IPCLK1000

z Auto: Based on the priorities of the clock sources, the IPCLK1000 automatically selects
the clock signals imported to a specific port as the clock source input. If the clock source
is faulty, the IPCLK1000 then automatically switches to the clock source that takes
priority over any other available clock source.

1.3.3 Working Principles of the IPCLK1000 as an IP Clock Client


The IPCLK1000 can be configured to be an IP clock client and serve the device that is
incapable of the IP packet resolution functionality.
The IPCLK1000 in Slave mode parses the clock packets sent from the IP clock server,
extracts clock signals from the packets, and then provides the clock signals to the required
device such as a base station.

1.3.4 Clock Synchronization


The IPCLK1000 in Master mode sends IP clock packets to an IP clock client before the client
extracts clock signals from the packet.
The IPCLK1000 frequency of sending the packets can be controlled as follows:
z For Huawei private protocol, you can set the packet sending frequency to 1, 10, 20, 30,
40, or 50 packets per second. Usually, keep the bandwidth for sending the IP clock
packets at 30 kbit/s for each client. Ensure that the bandwidth does not exceed 50 kbit/s
in a poor network environment.
z For the IEEE1588 V2 protocol, you can set the packet sending frequency to 1 packet
every two seconds or 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, or 128 packets per second. Usually, keep the
bandwidth for sending the IP clock packets at 20 kbit/s for each client. Ensure that the
bandwidth does not exceed 40 kbit/s in a poor network environment.
The IPCLK1000 can send the IP clock packets to a maximum of 10,240 clients at a frequency
smaller than or equal to 32 packets per second. The total number of clients supported is
decreased when the frequency is increased over 32 packets per second.

1.3.5 Clock Packet Capture


The IPCLK1000 can capture the clock packets in real time. The real-time capture of the clock
packets enables the user to observe the message interaction on the M2000 or LMT client.
Thus, the user can maintain the clock system by tracing the messages sent from the
IPCLK1000.

1.3.6 Clock Packet Statistics


The IPCLK1000 provides statistics of the clock packets, including the number of
sent/received and abnormal IP clock packets at the application layer.

The following consoles are available for the OM of the IPCLK1000:


z LMT
The LMT is applicable to local and remote maintenance. It is used to maintain a single
IPCLK1000 from aspects such as software upgrade, data loading, alarm data collection,
and equipment maintenance.
z M2000
The M2000 is applicable to remote maintenance. It is used to maintain multiple
IPCLK1000s from aspects such as software upgrade, data loading, alarm data collection,
and equipment maintenance.

Local maintenance: refers to the OM process where a user logs in to the IPCLK1000 by directly
connecting an LMT to the local Ethernet port on the IPCLK1000.
Remote maintenance: refers to the OM process where a user in an equipment room or at a network
maintenance center configures IP routes on the LMT or M2000 to log in to the IPCLK1000 remotely.

1.4.2 Introduction to OM Functions


The IPCLK1000 provides the following main OM functions:
z Security Management
z Configuration Management
z Software Management
z Fault Management
z Log Management

Issue 04 (2009-09-20) Huawei Technologies Proprietary 1-5


IPCLK1000
User Guide 1 Overview of the IPCLK1000

1.4.3 Security Management


For security management, the IPCLK1000 can protect the operator information by
automatically locking the LMT application if no operation is performed during a period of
time.
Socket security layer (SSL) is added in the transmission link between the IPCLK1000 and the
M2000/LMT. Thus, all MML and BIN instructions and messages can be encrypted during the
transmission.

1.4.4 Configuration Management


Configuration management is mainly applied to equipment maintenance and data
configuration. For configuration management, the IPCLK1000 performs consistency check on
configuration data.
Two data configuration modes are available. They are dynamic data configuration and static
data configuration. In dynamic data configuration mode, the modified data takes effect
immediately. In static data configuration mode, the modified data takes effect only after the
IPCLK1000 is reset.
The following commands are applicable only to static data configuration:
z SET CLOCKID
z SET CLIENTMODE
z SET ETHIP
z SET PTPFILE
z SET PTPPARA
z SET WORKSTATUS
All the other commands are applicable to dynamic data configuration.

1.4.5 Software Management


For software management, the IPCLK1000 has functions such as software version
management and software upgrade. You can query the software for its version. You can also
upgrade the non-compliant versions to compliant versions.

1.4.6 Fault Management


The alarm management system detects and reports information about faults in real time. The
LMT or M2000 then displays the alarm information and provides appropriate handling
suggestions.

1.4.7 Log Management


The IPCLK1000 records the information about operations in real time. For example, when
you perform operations and commissioning on the IPCLK1000 or alarms are generated on the
IPCLK1000, the system saves the records. The size of the log file is limited to 1 Mbits, and
the extra data overwrites the original one when the size exceeds the limit. You can run the
ULD FILE command to upload the OM log to the FTP server. The log can be retained as
long as you expect. In addition, you should specify the save path for the OM log, and thus you
can easily find the log, which helps locate and solve system problems effectively.

3.6.5 Changing the Clock Source Switching Mode


The following modes are available for clock source switching:
z Free: The IPCLK1000 uses the free-run clock signals generated by the internal oscillator
as the clock source input.
z Manual: The input clock signals at a specific port are manually set to be the clock source
input.
z Auto: Based on the priorities of the clock sources, the IPCLK1000 automatically selects
the clock signals imported to a specific port as the clock source input. If the clock source
is faulty, the IPCLK1000 then automatically switches to the clock source that takes
priority over any other available clock source.
At a time, the IPCLK1000 can use only one clock source.
To change the clock source switching mode, do as follows:
Step 1 On the MML client, run the LST SRVCLKMODE command to check the clock source
switching mode.

3.6.7 Changing the Output Clock Frequency


When the IPCLK1000 needs to provide a clock for other equipment, you need to set the
output clock frequency. This clock frequency refers to the frequency of the clock exported
from the port labeled OUT-CLK on the panel of the IPCLK1000.
For the IPCLK1000, the server-oriented task is the same as the client-oriented task in terms of
the principles and procedure. The difference lies in the commands to be run.

Setting the Output Frequency of the IPCLK1000 in Master Mode


To set the output clock frequency of the IPCLK1000 in Master mode, do as follows:
Step 1 On the MML client, run the LST SRVCLKOUT command to check the initial setting of the
output clock frequency.

If the result and the planning are Then...

3.8 Configuring the IPCLK1000 to Be Under the M2000


You can configure the IPCLK1000 to be under the centralized management of the M2000.
The prerequisites for this task are as follows:
z The IPCLK1000 passes local office verification.
z The OM network passes commissioning. The M2000 is operational.
z The version of the M2000 is compatible with the version of the IPCLK1000.

z When the IPCLK1000 and the M2000 are located on the same network segment, no route needs to be
configured before this task.
z When the IPCLK1000 and the M2000 are located on different network segments, the route from the
IPCLK1000 to the M2000 needs to be configured before this task.

To configure the IPCLK1000 to be under the management of the M2000, do as follows:


Step 1 Connect the IPCLK1000 to the OM network by connecting one end of the straight-through
cable to the hub connected to the IPCLK1000 and connecting the other end to the device such
as a hub or router.
Step 2 On the MML client, run the LST IPRT command to check whether any route from the
IPCLK1000 to the M2000 is configured on the IPCLK1000.

Status of the IPCLK1000
The IPCLK1000 in Master mode works properly and has passed the commissioning.

Status of the IP Clock Client


The IP clock client can be an AP, a NodeB, a BTS, or an IPCLK1000. The IP clock client
works properly and has passed the commissioning.

4.1.2 Preparing Tools, Instruments, and Devices


The IPCLK1000 is already connected to the LMT or M2000. They work properly. You need
to prepare cables, routers, hubs, and other tools and instruments.

4.1.3 Praparing Data for the Interconnection

IPCLK1000
User Guide 4 Interconnection between the IPCLK1000 and an IP Clock Client

4.2 Performing Operations at the IP Clock Server


4.2.1 Physical Connection
Install the cable according to the field capacity and networking requirements. Connect the
service port on the IPCLK1000 to the associated network equipment.

At a time, either the service FE port or the GE optical port, not both, is available for interconnection. For
details about how to install the cable, refer to section 3.3.3 "Installing Cables."

4.2.2 Data Configuration


The purpose of data configuration is to interconnect the IPCLK1000 and the client, that is, to
enable them to communicate with each other properly.

Before you perform each step, you can use the associated query command to check the default settings
of the IPCLK1000. The only difference between the query command and the command used in a step is
that the query command begins with LST while the command used in the step begins with ADD or SET.
If the queried settings are consistent with the required settings, that step is unnecessary.

To configure data at the server for interconnection, do as follows:


Step 1 On the MML client, run the SET WORKSTATUS command to set the working mode of the
IPCLK1000 to Master.
Step 2 On the MML client, run the SET CLIENTMODE command to set the type of the IP clock
client and the type of port for services. The IPCLK1000 supports only one clock client type
and one service port type at a time.
Step 3 (Optional; required when the IP clock server and the IP clock client are located on different
network segments) On the MML client, run the ADD IPRT command to configure a route for
the service port, through which the IPCLK1000 is connected to the IP clock client.
Step 4 On the MML client, run the SET ETHPORT command to set the parameters for the service
port. The parameters include the duplex mode and the speed.
Step 5 (For Huawei private protocol) On the MML client, run the SET PKTSENDPARA command
to set the transmission frequency and transmission time. You are advised to set the
transmission frequency to 50 packets per second but not to set the transmission time.
(For the IEEE1588 V2 protocol) On the MML client, run the SET PTPPARA command to set
the transmission frequency. You are advised to set the transmission frequency to 512 packets
per second.
Step 6 On the MML client, run the SET DSCPPRIORITY command to set the DSCP priorities of
packets.

After you run the SET WORKSTATUS, SET CLIENTMODE, or SET ETHPORT
command, you need to reset the IPCLK1000 to validate the configuration.

IPCLK1000 4 Interconnection between the IPCLK1000
User Guide and an IP Clock Client

4.3 Performing Operations at the IP Clock Client


4.3.1 Configuring a Common IP Clock Client
Physical Connection
Connect the service cable of the IP clock client to the network. In addition, ensure that the
software of the IP clock client supports the client functionality.

The host software of the IPCLK1000 in Slave mode does not have to be upgraded. That is because the
host software already supports the client functionality.

Data Configuration
Configure the service IP address of the IPCLK1000 and the route on the IP clock client, so as
to ensure that the client can be connected to the server.

4.3.2 Configuring an IPCLK1000 as an IP Clock Client


When the peer equipment is a NodeB, a BTS, or an AP, an IPCLK1000 can be installed on the
peer side, if the peer equipment fails to extract IP clock packets. The IPCLK1000 can work as
an IP clock client, which restores clock signals for the NodeB, BTS, or AP. To achieve that,
you need to configure the IPCLK1000 to be a client that is connected to the IPCLK1000
server.

Physical Connection
Connect one end of the service cable to the service FE port on the panel of the IPCLK1000 in
Slave mode, and connect the other end to the network.

If the IPCLK1000 is in Slave mode, only the service FE port can be used as the service port.

In addition, connect the port labeled OUT-CLK on the panel of the IPCLK1000 to the input
clock port on the device that the IPCLK1000 serves.

Data Configuration
One IP clock client can be connected to a maximum of two IPCLK1000 servers at the same
time. Typically, the IP clock client is connected two IPCLK1000 servers for the sake of
redundancy. If one of the two IP clock servers becomes faulty, the IP clock client turns to the
other server for source clock.

Before you perform each step, you can use the associated query command to check the default settings
of the IPCLK1000. The only difference between the query command and the command used in a step is
that the query command begins with LST while the command used in the step begins with ADD or SET.
If the queried settings are consistent with the required settings, that step is unnecessary.

To configure data for the IPCLK1000 in Slave mode, do as follows:


Step 1 On the MML client, run the SET WORKSTATUS command to set the working mode of the
IPCLK1000 to Slave.

4-4 Huawei Technologies Proprietary Issue 04 (2009-09-20)


IPCLK1000
User Guide 4 Interconnection between the IPCLK1000 and an IP Clock Client

Step 2 On the MML client, run the ADD CLTCLKSRC command to add the IP address of the clock
server to the client. For redundancy, you can add the IP addresses of two servers to one client
in this step.
Step 3 (Optional; required when the IP clock server and the IP clock client are located on different
network segments) On the MML client, run the ADD IPRT command to configure a route for
the service port, through which the client is connected to the IPCLK1000 server.
Step 4 Set the output clock frequency as required. For details, refer to section 3.6.6 "Reconfiguring
the GPS Data."

After you run the SET WORKSTATUS command, you need to reset the IPCLK1000 to
validate the configuration.

----End

4.4 Verifying the Interconnection


After you configure data for interconnection between the IPCLK1000 and the IP clock client,
you need to verify the interconnection.
To verify the interconnection against Huawei private protocol, do as follows:
Step 1 On the server side, run the DSP CLINETINFO command on the MML client to check
whether the client works properly.
Step 2 If the IP clock client is an IPCLK1000, run the DSP LINKTRANSSTATISTIC command
on the MML client on the IP clock client side.
You can check whether the packet reception works properly by checking the statistics of the
clock packets received by the clock client from the clock server.

Before you run the DSP LINKTRANSSTATISTIC command, you should run the STR
LINKTRANSSTATISTIC command to start a packet analysis and run the STP
LINKTRANSSTATISTIC command to stop the analysis.

Step 3 If the IP clock client is a NodeB, a BTS, or an AP, run the associated command on the clock
client side to check the packet reception statistics.
For details about the command to be run at the clock client, refer to the associated MML help.
----End

To verify the interconnection against the IEEE1588 V2 protocol, do as follows:

Step 1 Run the MML command LST CLINETINFO to check whether the client works properly.
Step 4 Run the LST SRVCLKSRC command to check the received clock packets.

Issue 04 (2009-09-20) Huawei Technologies Proprietary 4-5


IPCLK1000 4 Interconnection between the IPCLK1000
User Guide and an IP Clock Client

Run the STR LINKTRANSSTATISTICPUB command to start collecting the statistics of the sent and
received packets before you run the DSP LINKTRANSSTATISTICPUB command.

Step 5 (Optional) You can query the detailed information about the sent and received clock packets
as follows. Log in to the LMT. On the Maintenance tab page, choose Service > Trace
Management > Interface Trace Task > IPCLK_TRACE to start the tracing of the IPCLK
messages. The tracing result is displayed in the right pane.

For details, see section 3.4.4 "Starting the LMT Application."

Step 6 If the IP clock client is a NodeB, a BTS, or an AP, run the corresponding command at the
client side to check the packet reception statistics. For details, see the relevant descriptions in
the MML help.
