The following configuration is not possible in a mixed network of Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ and PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU NE’s, when Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ NE’s are placed close to the PNMS, and are followed by PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU. 1. Otherwise an error will occur during configuring (Create Configuration). It is because of the hardware limitation of 19.2 kbps IC in 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 ASYNC (19.2 kbps). As a result, in the No.007, a 19.2K IC is required to serve two different protocols, which is not possible. Instead, SYNC (64K) IC is used for the connection.
