The system clock supports various work modes including the internal clock, line (or tributary) clock, and external clock. The system can be configured with ten channels of line (or tributary) clock sources and two channels of external clock sources simultaneously. The system can perform protection switching among the clock sources according to the alarm and synchronization status information of the clock sources. It provides the boards in various slots with system clock signal, system frame head signal, and system clock enabling signal. Employs the software-controlled phase-locking circuit to achieve four work modes as follows: i. Fast capture mode ii. Tracing mode iii. Hold mode iv. Free-oscillation mode Implements network-wide clock synchronization via the SSM byte. Provides the clock for tributary board retiming. Two OCS16 boards can work in 1+1 hot backup mode in order to ensure the synchronization and timing reliability of clock unit. The standby clock unit traces the frequency and phase of the active clock unit, so that the frequency and phase of the output clock will have no jump when the EMS switches between the active and standby clock unit. One OCS16 board can also work alone. Can input two channels of external clock reference and output two channels of clock reference to the outside. The interfaces of these clock references are provided by the SAI board. The OCS16 board can cross-connect 92 AU-4s at the higher-order path, and 32 AU-4s at the lower-order path. When ZXMP S325 is equipped with OCS16 board, the capacity distribution of motherboard is shown in Figure 23.

OA Board
Functions

OA board amplifies one channel of optical signal. Its amplification function is independent of optical signal rate. By amplifying the optical power of light with 1550 nm wavelength, OA board can improve the non-regenerator transmission distance and provide transparent transmission channel for optical signals. The data rate can be 2.5 Gbit/s, 622 Mbit/s, or 155 Mbit/s. OA board supports query of four parameters: optical launched power, optical received power, module temperature, and laser working current.

Connection Relations

Figure 38 shows the connection relations among OA board and other optical line boards. The east optical line board sends optical signals to the OA board. The OA board receives the signals, then amplifies the optical signals, and sends them to the west optical line board. Finally, the west optical line board receives the amplified optical signals.
FIGURE 38. CONNECTION RELATIONS AM ONG O A BOARD AND OTHER BOARDS

OA Board Categories

In practice, OA boards are classified into Optical Booster Amplifier (OBA), Optical Pre-Amplifier (OPA), or Optical Line Amplifier (OLA) according to the position and effect of EDFA. Refer to Appendix A Terminologies for the illustrations of EDFA.

OBA locates at the transmitting end of the system. It boosts the optical launched power of the system, and extends the distance of the regenerator. OPA locates at the receiving end of the system. It amplifies the weak transmitted signals, and boosts the input power of the system receiver. OLA locates in the middle of the optical fiber line of the system. It replaces the optical regenerator.

EPE1x21/EPT1x21/EPE1B Boards
Functions These boards are (electrical) tributary boards.

EPE1x21 or EPT1x21 board has the following functions:


Maps and demaps E1 or T1 electrical signals. Each board can process at most 21 channels of electrical signals. The timeslots to add service and the timeslots to drop service can be different. Implements the path protection for VC-12/VC-11 between two groups of AU buses. The two paths protecting each other can be in different timeslots of two groups of AU buses. Processes two groups of AU buses sent by the OCS4 board according to the concurrent transmitting and preferred receiving principle. The "preferred receiving" is implemented by detecting alarm and performance data in different timeslots, and then selecting the relatively normal timeslots for demapping. The "concurrent transmitting" is implemented by sending data to different AU bus timeslots concurrently. Extracts and overheads. inserts higher-order/lower-order path

ZXMP S325 (V2.00) Hardware Descriptions

Supports tributary retiming of at most four tributaries (the first to the fourth E1/T1 tributaries). Works with BIE1x21 and ESE1x21 boards to implement the 1:N (N6) protection for EPE1x21/EPT1x21/EPE1B board.

EPE1B board has all the functions of EPE1x21 and EPT1x21 boards. In addition, its E1/T1 interface supports the unframing and framing methods:

Unframing method: The board only detects the LOS alarm at E1/T1 interface, AIS alarm, and the CV performance count. Framing method: Besides all the information detected in the unframing method, the board also detects the LOF and RAI framing alarm of received E1/T1 signal, and displays them on the EMS. User can judge if the fault lies in the opposite-end equipment or the terminal equipment according to the EMS framing alarm information, and then solve the fault on site.

RSEB Board
Functions

Supports the Q in Q identification; uses the outmost 802.1Q identifier as the VLAN identifier to isolate users; participates in learning, searching, and isolating traffic on the ring network. Supports different users by identifying them with VID (VLAN ID). Every user can have multiple VLAN IDs, so that he can be completely isolated not only at local site but also between different sites, and thus satisfies the requirement of different user for data security. Every user can have traffic of different priorities (including class A, B, and C). And VLAN ID varies with the traffic class. The bandwidth and peak-value rate of traffic with a certain priority can be configured. Supports the fairness algorithm. Supports the topology discovery and protection function, and passthrough mode. Supports the configuration of EMS, query of alarm and performance, and other queries (including port running status and RPR ring topology relation diagram). The RPR ring bandwidth can be configure; supports VC4-xv and VC3-xv virtual concatenation; supports the bandwidthadjustable RPR ring with granularity of VC-4. Supports the Bypass RPR MAC function: traffic is only switched by Ethernet and is not switched by RPR MAC. There are two kinds of RSEB board: RSEB-RPR and RSEBEOS.

RSEB-RPR board is the ordinary RSEB board. It provides the RPR networking function. RSEB-EOS board implements the pure EOS function with two GE interfaces (RPR system ports) by using Bypass RPR MAC switching.

Terminologies
1. EDFA If an ordinary optical fiber is doped with some other element such as erbium or praseodymium, it would be able to amplify the laser at a certain waveband. The full name of EDFA is Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier. At the heart of the EDFA, the fiber is doped with erbium, a rare earth element that happens to have the appropriate energy levels in its atomic structure for amplifying light at 1550 nm. When light at 1550 nm travels through the erbium doped fiber, it causes stimulated emission. In this way, the 1550 nm optical input signal gains strength. The basic components of EDFA include the gain medium (erbium doped fiber of various types), pump source, optical passive components (optical isolator, optical multiplexer, optical demultiplexer, optical fiber connector), control unit and control interface. Among which the optical isolator prevents reverse light from influencing the EDFA; the optical fiber connector facilitates the connections among EDFA, communication system, and optical lines; the optical coupler separates part of signals from the input and output optical lines, and sends these signals to the optical monitor. 2. RPR system port It is also known as RPR port. For user data frames, the RPR ring network only has one entrance/exit. The RPR system port is actually a channel for RPR ring network to add/drop the user traffic. The traffic received at the RPR system port and sent to the user port is called the dropped traffic; while the traffic received at the user port and sent to the RPR system port is called the added traffic. 3. RPR Span port It is also known as VCG (RPR Span) port. It refers to the port that supports reception/transmission of RPR frames from the 802.17 network. RPR has a dual-ring structure, which is similar to the topology of SDH bidirectional MS ring. It consists of two ringlets with opposite directions, among which the clockwise ringlet is called ring 0 and the counterclockwise ringlet is called ringlet 1. Each RPR ringlet

Confidential and Proprietary Information of ZTE CORPORATION

ZXMP S325 (V2.00) Hardware Descriptions

must provide two Span ports: Span1 port and Span2 port. The Span ports implement the encapsulation/unencapsulation and mapping/demapping between RPR frames and SDH VCG. Each Span port corresponds to one VCG, with the maximum bandwidth tunable and the granularity being VC-3 or VC-4. The Span1 port of every equipment is connected with the Span2 port of its adjacent equipment to build the RPR ring network. The relationship between the boards Span ports and the ring network is shown in Figure 68.

4. EOS system port It is also known as VCG (EOS) port. It refers to the port that supports the reception/transmission of Ethernet frames from the 802.3 network, This port is similar to the system port on the EOS board of SFE series. It receives the Ethernet frames and encapsulates them, then maps them to the VCG. Each system port corresponds to one VCG, with the maximum bandwidth of FE. In networking, the EOS system ports can connect with each other or connect with the system port on EOS board of SFE series. 5. 802.1Q identifier In Ethernet, the 802.1Q identifier is an ID to isolate users. It is supported by data equipment with relatively powerful function such as switches and routers. This ID includes a 3-bit QoS ID (also called 802.1p priority) and a 12-bit VID. QoS ID is used to assign the frame priority (totally there are 8 priorities), so that the frame can be transferred prior to other frame with less priority during switching. The 12-bit VID is used to isolate users. Users with different VIDs belong to different broadcast areas and cannot directly communicate with each other unless transited by the third layer equipment.

6. Q in Q It is 802.1Q in 802.1Q. It refers to adding one layer of 802.1Q ID in front of the existed user 802.1Q ID, and isolating users of the same operator without modifying the original user ID, thus implementing the two-layer isolation (the user uses one isolation layer, and the operator uses the other one). This method is also called the Vlan Stack or Double Vlan.
