2.7

Network Properties: Naming the Individual Networks in a Workspace


Since one workspace can contain a number of networks, the NetCfg Toolj allows you to provide useful names to each of the networks. By default, Network-x, where x is the network number, is assigned. To set the network name:

1. Click on Network
Properties from the main menu or right click anywhere in the current Network window to open the Network Properties window. 2. Enter the desired name for this workspace/network in the Network Name box. 3. Click on [OK] button to save the new setting.

2.8

Network Properties: Network Address and Subnet Setting


The IP addresses assigned by the NetCfg Toolj to selected network depend on the assigned Network Address and Subnet Mask in the Network Properties window. (Please refer to the PNMS Engineering Manual for the network-sizing rule and IP addressing scheme.) To set the subnet of the selected network: 1. Click on Network Properties from the main menu or right click anywhere in the current Network window to open the Network Properties window.

2. Click on Subnet category in


the Network Properties window. 3. By default the NetCfg Toolj will utilize the private network address 172.18.0.0 with subnet mask 255.255.254.0. This subnet allocates 512 IP addresses to the selected network. You can modify this subnet by selecting the default subnet and clicking the [Modify] button. Where the network was initially assigned a smaller subnet, you can add another subnet when the IP address runs out. Click on [Add] button to assign a new subnet to the selected network. (NOTE: A maximum number of five network addresses and subnet mask settings is possible) ** For example, network address 10.10.10.0 with subnet mask 255.255.255.192 was initially assigned to the selected network. This means only 64 addresses are initially allocated. If the number of NEs exceeds 62, a new subnet must be assigned to the network to allocate new IP addresses for the new NEs NOTE: The maximum number of NEs per CPMC network is 416 NEs regardless to whether more than 416 IP addresses are assigned to the network. (See PNMS Engineering Manual)

-8-

ROI-S05945

The ensuing window, Network Address window, allows you to modify the default subnet by either changing the Network Address or the Subnet mask to be used by the selected network. You can increase or decrease the allocated IP address on the selected network by modifying the subnet mask and the network address in this window. (Refer to Appendix B: Subnets to see the available subnets in the managed network.) In the example shown below, where the network address is 172.18.0.64 with subnet mask 255.255.255.192 given to the selected network, NetCfg Toolj will allocate the IP address 172.18.0.65-126 to this network. Note that in this example 62 IP addresses were assigned. Another as the network address (172.18.0.64) and another as the broadcast address (172.18.0.127). Click on [OK] to save the new subnet. When the [Add] button was clicked in step.3, the ensuing window enables you to define another subnet that will be added to the existing subnet. Click on [Add] button to save the new subnet. (NOTE: The maximum number of network addresses and subnet mask settings that can be regstered is 5.) 4. Click on [OK] button to save the new settings.

Editing Workspace
Adding a New Network Element (NE) The NetCfg Toolj supports Pasolink V3, Pasolink V4, Pasolink-S, MIU, Pasolink Mx , Pasolink+ and PASOLINK NEO network configurations. Therefore a network element can either be a Pasolink V3, Pasolink V4, Pasolink S, MIU or Pasolink Mx, Pasolink+., PASOLINK NEO. Note that the configuration is the same for Pasolink-S, Pasolink V3 and Pasolink V4 or Pasolink Mx and Pasolink+. To add a new NE: icon in the tool bar or click on Edit Network Element Type from the 1. Click on main menu to add a network element. Select the type of NE that you would like to add from the pull-down list. Pasolink V3 is selected by default.

2. Click on the spot in the current workspace where you wish to add the NE. 3. Arrange the newly added hop according to desired position in the workspace. The NEs can be moved around the workspace by clicking on it and dragging it to the desired location in the workspace 2.9.2 Adding Back-to-back Line (cable) To add a back-to-back line (cable): 1. Click on the icon in the tool bar or click on Edit Add BB Line from the main menu.

2. Click on one of the NE to be connected. Then click on the other NE to be connected by back-to-back line (cable) to the previously selected NE. Refer to the example given below. Example: Connecting Pasolink No.002 with Pasolink No.008 Step 1. Click on icon. Click on Pasolink No. 002.

Step 2. Click on Pasolink No. 008. Step 3. Set the line properties. (Refer to 2.8.10 Setting Line (cable) Properties.) Note: Multi-drop or branch lines (B-B) cannot be connected to the output or the NMS signal source -No.001 in this example. PMC NMS port splits only the input signal but not the output signal. This is a limitation of the PMC hardware. - 10 -

2.9.3

Back-to-Back Line Color Codes The NMS back-to-back connection between NEs varies according to the type of NEs connected, speed, synchronization, the port used and the type of protocol used. The NetCfg Toolj uses color-coded lines to allow the network designer to distinguish the various types of connection.

The following lists the color codes used by the NetCfg Toolj to represent the different back-toback connection types.

Black: represents the common RS-485/RS-232C/9600bps/ASYNC multi-drop line between Pasolink, Line Concentrator, MIU and Pasolink-S NEs. Red: represents the 64kbps/RS-422/SYNC connections between NE1 and NE1 of Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ NEs. Violet: represents the RS485/19200bps/ASYNC connections NE2 and NE1 of Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ NEs or RS485/9600bps/ASYNC connection between Pasolink V3/PasolinkV4/Pasolink-S/MIU and PASOLINK NEO/Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ NEs or RS485/19200bps/ASYNC connection between PASOLINK NEO/Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ and Pasolink V3/PasolinkV4/Pasolink-S/MIU NEs.

The following configuration is not possible in a mixed network of Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ and PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU NEs, when Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ NEs are placed close to the PNMS, and are followed by PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU. 1. Otherwise errors may occur during configuring (Create Configuration) due to the 19.2kbps IC limitation of 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.

ASYNC 19.2 kbps PPP 19.2 kbps

2. To change the connection of No.005 and No.007 from ASYNC to SYNC, please use the Line Properties dialog box. Please change the port for No.005 from NE2 to NE1.

3. After the line properties are modified, the configuration will be shown as below and configuring (Create Configuration) will then be possible.

SYNC 64 kbps PPP 19.2 kbps

Appendix F: NMS Port Setting of MIU (Line Concentrator / Hop)


If an MIU (Line Concentrator or Hop type) is included in your system configuration, please confirm the following points related to MIU setting. 1. When the MIU (Line Concentrator or Hop type) is connected as a PASOLINK+ or PASOLINK Mx multi-drop connection, please confirm that the NMS port is set for each MIU, for example, the connection of No.003 and No.004 in Pattern 1 or No.003 and No.005 in Pattern2. <Pattern 1>
NE2

<Pattern 2>

2. Confirm that Connect Port of each MIU is set to NMS by opening Line Properties between No.003 and No.004 in Pattern 1 or between No.003 and No.005 in Pattern 2.

3. In the above example, please confirm that both MIUs do not have the same NMS Port setting, by opening the Port category in NE Properties. If they are set to the same mode please reset the NMS Port mode for the CPM by selecting the Manual mode in the Mode Auto Assign setting from the Port category in NE Properties, so that the NMS Ports of both MIUs can communicate by connecting them with a straight cable.

Note: When a 2 system (NE) type MIU is used in the above configuration, please be sure that the Connect Port setting for both NEs is NMS and that the Mode setting of one NMS Port is RS485_TX and the other is RS485_RX or vice versa. If the same mode is set to both NMS Ports, the NMS Ports cannot communicate, because the NMS Ports for both NEs are internally connected by straight cable.
