Chapter 1
NE Initialization
NE initialization is to implement the NE management procedure through configuring the
SNP, SOSC, or SOSCB boards. The SNP board is the core board of the NE monitoring
system, providing NE management, protection control, data forwarding, and channel
maintenance. Figure 1-1 shows the front panel of the M2SNP board.

1.1 NE Initialization Procedure


Figure 1-2 shows the procedure for NE initialization.

Figure 1-2 NE Initialization Procedure

1.2 Querying the Temporary External IP Address of the


M2SNP Board
The IP address used for communication between NEs is called an external address. A
temporary external IP address has been allocated for the SNP board before equipment
delivery. The temporary external IP must be replaced by the planned external IP address
on site. The external temporary address of the M2SNP board is used as the IP address
of the new NE.

Prerequisite
The IP address of the EMS server and the temporary external IP address of the SNP board
belong to the same network segment.

Chapter 1 NE Initialization

Context
The EIC board is the external interface board of a shelf. Only after the EMS server is
connected to the NX41 or DX41 shelf through the ETH1 or ETH2 port of the EIC board,
can the EMS query the temporary external IP address of the SNP board.

Steps
1. Press the TST button of the EIC board for 5 seconds. When the NOM indicator of the
EIC board quickly flashes, release the TST button.

Note:
If the NOM and ALM indicators of the M2SNP board flash at the same time, and
the internal IP address 192.168.1.4 of the M2SNP board can be pinged successfully,
VLANs are converged successfully.

2. On the EMS server, select Start > Run. A dialog box is displayed. Enter cmd and
press Enter. The DOS command window is displayed.
3. In the DOS command window, enter the telnet 192.168.1.4 9023 command, see Figure
1-3. Press Enter, and you can log in to the M2SNP board.

Figure 1-3 Logging into the M2SNP Board

4. On the login window, enter user name ZTE and password ZTE. Press Enter.

5. After you log in to the board successfully, enter the :ifconfig command. Press Enter.
The external IP address of the M2SNP board 192.100.10.1 is displayed under eth0:1,
see Figure 1-4.

1.3 Creating an NE
After the temporary external IP address is queried, you need to create an NE on the EMS
and set up management relationship between the EMS and the NE.

Prerequisite
The IP address of the EMS server and the temporary external IP address of the SNP board
belong to the same network segment.

Parameter Description

NE Type Select the NE type in accordance with the location of the NE in the
network. The NE types are as follows:
l OADM: It is located at an intermediate station. It adds and drops
services.
l OXC: It provides the wavelength-based connection function and
implements cross-connection for optical channels.
l OTM: It is located at the end station of a linear network. It
multiplexes client signals into DWDM signals, or it demultiplexes
DWDM signals into client signals.
l OLA: It is located at an intermediate station in a network. It is used
to extend transmission distance but cannot add or drop services.

Rate Level It is the designed capacity of the system. It is configured as required.

IP Address Temporary external IP address of the SNP board of the main shelf.

Subnet Mask It should be configured as required.

Gate IP It should be configured as required.

User Default: admin. The maximum length is 32 bytes.

Password Authorization password that the administrator uses for access to the
NE, default: null. The maximum length is 16 bytes. If the password is
configured for the NE on an EMS server, you must enter this password
on other EMS servers to manage the NE.

Hardware Version V3.00

Software Version It matches the AGENT software version of the SNP board.

3. Click the Rack/Shelf Configuration button on the bottom-right corner. The


Rack/Shelf Configuration dialog box is displayed.

Note:
The shelf type selected on the EMS must be the same with the shelf installed in the
cabinet.

Note:
There is an 8-digit DIP switch (marked as SI) on the shelf backplane. It is used to set
the shelf ID, see Figure 1-7. For a description of the parameters, refer to Table 1-3.
The EMS distinguishes shelves in an NE by using the shelf IDs.

requires some time.

15. Press the TST button of the EIC board for 5 seconds. When the NOM indicator of
the EIC board slowly flashes, release the TST button. The EMS can manage NEs
properly.

Note:
If the NOM and ALM indicators of the SNP board flash at the same time, or the
internal IP address 192.168.1.4 of the SNP board cannot be pinged through, the
VLAN converge is cancelled.

Easy Provisioning
If a remote NE cannot be managed, you can use the easy provisioning function to manage
the remote NE through the physical links between NEs. By using the easy provisioning
function, you can query and set the port IP address and NE IP address of the remote NE,
query the board information, set and query static routes, and reset the monitoring board
of the remote NE.

Prerequisite
l The NE has been configured with an SOSCB board.
l The monitoring system operates properly.
