Chapter

Traditional SDH Service Networking Configuration


This chapter describes the configuration flow of establishing a transmission network with the ZXONM E300. In addition, an example of SDH service networking is included to describe the operation steps and methods.

Configuration Flow
The networking configuration with ZXONM E300 has two typical flows according to whether the NEs are online or offline.
Note: Online status indicates that the NE configuration commands are sent at realtime to the NCP card, and then are forwarded to the corresponding card by NCP card. Offline status indicates that the NE configuration commands are only saved in the EMS database and are not sent to the NCP card, since the NE is offline.

Networking flow of online NEs The networking flow of online NEs is listed in Table 4.

Note: Some other configurations may need to be performed in the EMS according to actual networking requirement and equipment type: If the network needs MS protection, configure MS protection before configuring timeslots. If the network needs Ethernet or ATM service, configure them. For detailed configuration, refer to Chapter 3 and Chapter 4. If the equipment has special requirement for configuration, e.g. the ZXMP S330 needs 1:N protection for card, make corresponding configurations in EMS.

Flow Control

Flow control and QoS are two methods to handle network congestion. They have opposite principles and cannot be used at the same time. If the system port bandwidth is less than the corresponding user port traffic, flow control is recommended for user port and system port. If multiple user ports share one system port, QoS should be enabled.

The flow control should also be enabled for the port of user equipment which connects to this user port. The flow control should be enabled for the corresponding system port simultaneously. If a user port employs the WFQ mode of QoS, QoS priority should be selected. Each QoS priority corresponds to a bandwidth ratio, and the bandwidth is configured in the system port configuration. It is recommended to enable this function.

QoS Priority

Self MAC

Study

Set if the user port supports self-study of MAC address. If this function is disabled, the port has to obtain the destination address via the static MAC address configuration. Limit the rate of data frames sent by the user port. There is no limit by default. Bind all the ports with the same physical type to one logical port so as to increase bandwidth capacity of link, evenly distribute data into multiple physical links, and protect links using redundant routes.

Parameter Port State Use

Description The type and quantity of system port is determined by the card type Includes the access mode and the trunk mode: Refer to Table 30. In access mode, the port will add VLAN ID to the received data frame. Flow control and QoS are two methods to handle network congestion. They have opposite principles and cannot be used at the same time. If the system port bandwidth is less than the corresponding user port traffic, flow control is recommended for user port and system port.

Remarks The port configuration will not take effect until the port is enabled. The trunk mode is recommended for system port. Value range: 1 to 4095 Once the flow control of a system port is enabled, the flow control should be enabled for the corresponding user port simultaneously. If a system port employs the WFQ mode of QoS, the relationship between the QoS priority and the bandwidth must be configured. The system ports at both ends of Ethernet traffic must have the same transmission capacity. Otherwise, the traffic is blocked.

VLAN Mode Pvid

Flow Control

QoS Priority

If multiple user ports share one system port, QoS should be enabled. Configure VC12 virtual concatenation group. Assign path groups to system ports. LCAS refers to the Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme. When the user bandwidth changes, LCAS can adjust the number of VC paths in a virtual concatenation group to prevent traffic interruption or only cause transient interruption.

Path Group Config Set Port Capacity

LCAS Config

When the LCAS is enabled, if a VC in a path group fails, the system will automatically delete the invalid VC, and the remaining normal VCs can keep transmitting traffic. When the invalid VC recovers, the system will add the VC into the virtual concatenation group.

The LCAS function is recommended for system ports.

iii. Configure the card property In the Data Card Property page, set the running mode and MAC address of the card. Refer to Table 32 for parameter descriptions and configuration principles.

TABLE 32 P ARAMETERS OF SFE/SGE CARD PROPERTY

Running Mode Option Description The port forwards data packets by searching the MAC address table, thus implements the arbitrary switching between user ports and system ports. Remarks Enabling two or more ports in this mode on a card may result in broadcast storm, and finally result in traffic failure It is similar to the transparent transmission by physical channel, and can transparently transmit various protocol frames including 802.1x frames. If a card employs the transparent mode, the VLAN mode configuration of the user port becomes invalid. It can ensure the traffic security. However, when the traffic contains a large number of VLANs, each VLAN needs to be configured independently, which requires a lot of work.

Default Mode

Transparent Mode

The MAC address and VLAN are shielded. The point-to-point transparent transmission path is provided. Data frames can be forwarded only between the user port and the system port that are bound to each other.

VLAN Mode

Data frames are forwarded by the assigned VLAN and by searching the MAC address table. Traffic between different VLANs is blocked for the sake of isolation and security. The MAC address is shielded when forwarding data packets according to the assigned VLAN. This mode allows receiving packets with the same source address from different ports. It supports the transparent transmission of all kinds of protocol packets and the convergence of traffic based on VLANs.

Virtual Mode

Channel

MAC Address Description Input the MAC address of the card in HEX format. Remarks The MAC addresses should be unique to avoid broadcast storm.

3. Configure VLAN and STP If the running mode of the Ethernet card is Default Mode or Transparent Mode, go to step 4 directly. Otherwise, follow the flowchart shown in Figure 36 to configure VLAN and STP (Spanning Tree Protocol). The parameters are described in Table 33.

Parameter

Description Choose the LCAS configuration mode for port, including directional, unidirectional, and un-LCAS.

Remarks

The bidirectional LCAS is recommended. The VC4 virtual concatenation path group does not support LCAS since there is only one VC4 in each group.

LCAS Config

If the unidirectional is selected, it is necessary to enable LCAS for members that are responsible for the receive direction and the send direction respectively. If the LCAS function is enabled, the delay time of LCAS protection can be configured to prevent LCAS protection from happening with SDH protection simultaneously. In this way, the LCAS protocol will not perform protection immediately upon alarm detection; instead, if alarm still exists after the delay time, it shall perform protection.

Delay Time

The SE card of current version does not support this function.

Note: The VCG port capacity config dialog box can be entered in another way: In the Card Management dialog box of the NE, right-click the SE card to pop up the shortcut menu of SE card. Then click the VCG port capacity config menu item.

Select the node and the menu item Device Config -> Ethernet Management -> RPR Ethernet Service Attribute, to set the attribute of RPR service for the VLAN classified in step 3 in the popup dialog box. The RPR traffic is classified into three types depending on the QoS: type A, B, and C, with priorities of A>B>C. Type A Auxiliary parameters: Max BW and Reserved BW, where BW refers to bandwidth. The traffic of type A shares the reserved bandwidth in RPR ring. Even in case of idleness, this bandwidth cannot be occupied by traffic of other types. If type A traffic exceeds the upper limit of the bandwidth, all of them will be discarded. It is not controlled by the fairness algorithm, and has invariable rates. The delay and jitter effect on them is the smallest. It is applicable to analog Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) traffic. Type B Auxiliary parameters: Max BW and Min BW, where BW refers to bandwidth. Type B traffic is classified into B-type CIR traffic and B-type EIR traffic. The B-type CIR traffic occupies guaranteed bandwidth and are not controlled by the fairness algorithm. When the bandwidth is idle, it can be occupied by other traffic. The B-type EIR traffic occupies bandwidth between the limited bandwidth and the guaranteed bandwidth, which can be shared with other nodes, and it is controlled by the fairness algorithm. It is applicable to traffic which is insensitive to delay but requires bandwidth guarantee. For example, some data traffic with high requirement can occupy more bandwidth when there is idle bandwidth. Type C Auxiliary parameters: Max BW, where BW refers to bandwidth. The traffic of type C is processed in an attempt, which has no bandwidth guarantee and is controlled by the fairness algorithm. When the traffic exceeds the bandwidth limit, it will be discarded completely. It has a large delay and jitter. It is applicable to data services with lower requirements.

Note: One VLAN can only have one traffic type, and different VLANs can have identical traffic type.

APS Byte Setting


The Automatic Protection Switching (APS) byte serves for transmitting the MSP switching information. Only when the APS byte is transmitted correctly, can the multiplex section protection switching work normally. The value of APS byte can range from 0 to 3, and the default value is 0. An NE can be included in multiple MSP groups, when it has been configured into a logical subnet. The ZXONM E300 supports the setting of APS byte in the unit of port, thus guaranteeing normal working of each MSP group. The principles to set the APS byte are described as follows. The APS byte of two ports physically connected in the same MS ring must be the same, to guarantee correct transmission of APS byte between two nodes. If one port belongs to different MSP groups, the APS byte of each MSP group must be unique. The ZXMP S320 and ZXMP S360 do not support the setting of APS byte, and their default APS byte is 0. Therefore, the APS byte must be set to zero for the optical ports connected with the ZXMP S320 or ZXMP S360 equipment.

Applicable NE and Card All SDH NEs Optical cards of ZXMP S380, ZXMP S390, ZXMP S330, ZXMP S325, and ZXMP S385; and optical cards and ET1 card of ZXMP S200.

Through configuring the DCC use and changing the DCC byte of the port, the following functions can be provided: The communication rate of NEs will be improved with the DCC configuration of DCCr + DCCm. As long as the DCC byte of the abutting optical interfaces keeps the same, any line port can use DCCr or DCCm to carry the communication data separately. When the DCC is not used for optical interfaces, non-communication data can be transmitted through the pass-through connection between DCCr and DCCm among different ports with the overhead crossconnect function of the EMS. The DCC byte can be configured separately and differently in the receiving direction and the transmitting direction.

Caution: The DCC must be configured as DCCr for the optical card used for regeneration. If the DCC is used to transmit communication data, the DCC setting must be the same for the abutting optical interfaces to guarantee the communication data transmission.

Performance Management
This chapter describes the operation method and process for performance configuration and performance query in the ZXONM E300.

Performance Configuration
Setting Digital Performance Threshold
Digital performance refers to parameters that reflect the transmission and traffic quality, such as channels, interfaces. In the operation of the equipment, the digital performance is detected by the MCU of cards, which also performs statistics on the performance values. The performance statistical period can be 15 minutes or 24 hours. In the ZXONM E300, each performance threshold has a default value, which is downloaded to the NCP card of the NE while the system downloads the database at the first time. The 15 minutes or 24 hours performance threshold of the performance items can be modified and then downloaded to the NCP with commands. [Applicable NEs] All the SDH NEs

Take NE D in the networking instance in Chapter 1 as an example.

To modify the 15-minute performance UAS high threshold of NE D RS to 900:


1. Select NE D in the client operation window, and then select the menu item Performance -> Performance Config -> Parameter Performance Threshold to pop up the Digital Threshold dialog box; 2. Select the detection cycle to 15 Minutes;

[Result Verification]

When the MCU of NE D detects the 15 minutes performance value of UAS is greater than or equals to 1000, the NE D will report the UAS over threshold alarm.

Setting Analog Performance Threshold


The analog performance refers to parameters that embody the working conditions of physical components or circuits, such as the receiving and transmitting optical power of a laser. Generally, there is an higher threshold and a lower threshold for each analog parameter. As the quantity of analog parameters can not be accumulated during a period, the difference between the analog value and reference is taken as the criterion to judge whether it is normal. The thresholds of analog performance items of a specific card can be modified through the analog performance threshold command. [Applicable NEs] ZXMP S330, ZXMP S325, ZXMP S360, ZXMP S380, ZXMP S390, ZXMP S385, and ZXMP S200 NEs that are online and can communicate with the EMS normally

This chapter introduces maintenance operations of SDH NEs.

Note: Attention please! Any misoperation of maintenance may cause service interruption or equipment malfunction. Please Read this chapter carefully before performing maintenance operations.

Setting Loopback
Through the loopback of an optical channel or tributary, the traffic is transmitted from the transmitting port and received at the receiving port of the NE. In the case of separating the communication links, the loopback can be used to confirm the fault point of NEs and detect the working status of nodes and transmission lines in the network.

Note: The loopback operation may result in traffic interruption, therefore be careful while performing the loopback operation. The operation principle of loopback is that keep the influences on traffic as little as possible. For example, if a fault can be located through a tributary unit loopback, the AU loopback should be avoided.

Loopback type The loopback is divided into line loopback and terminal loopback depending on the flow direction of signals between transmitting and receiving ports. The loopback from an optical line card to an optical port of it is the line loopback, while the loopback in the opposite direction is the terminal loopback. The loopback from an electrical tributary card to an electrical tributary port of it is the terminal loopback, while the loopback in the opposite direction is the line loopback, as shown in Figure 108.

T A B L E 7 0 M E A N I N G S O F AP S P A R A M E T E R S

Parameter APS start

Meaning In the case that the APS protocol is working properly, the MP protection ring is working in APS state. When the MSP group is configured, the APS should be started. The APS protocol stops working and keeps the data before stopping. For instance, if MSP switching happens at a site, the original MSP switching operation will be kept after the APS stops, and the new data will not be processed. The APS data is cleared completely and the NE data is initialized. After reset, the working status of system recovers. The system waits for new data, and performs automatic protection switching.
