AVAILABLE TOOLS
The following is an overview of the tools that are used in the TRuepoint
system and software.
System Configuration/Management
Web-CIT
The TRuepoint Web-CIT provides for configuration, control, and
administration of the radio as well as a display for alarms via an embedded web
interface. The Web-CIT is available with a direct connection or remotely
through the customers TCP/IP network, and displays the current status of
both the local and remote units.
The Web-CIT has five main sections:
Fault Management
Configuration
Administration
Performance
Security
TRuepoint 4000 Operators Interface March 2006
2-2 Available Tools
Harris Keypad or VT-100 Terminal
The Harris Keypad/Hand Held Terminal (HHT) provides for the configuration
of the radio as well as a display for alarms. The same functionality is available
using VT-100 emulation on a standard PC terminal.
You can use the Keypad or a VT-100 terminal to:
Configure and control the system
Review system status
Review system alarms
Implement password control
Netcom
The Netcom protocol carries information inside a Harris equipment network.
Its capacity (or bandwidth) allocated in the overhead of the radio is 512 kbit/s
(depending on the capacity of the radio).
This protocol encapsulates all the functions such as SCAN (System Control and
Alarm Network), Network Management, and O/W. The payload or bandwidth
is dynamically allocated to any of these services; this means that if the O/W is
not used this capacity is then allocated to Netcom to assign to the remaining
services such as NMS or SCAN. This will increase the speed of the Network
Management System and SCAN.
Netcom is carried in the auxiliary channel of the RF link (radio overhead). On
that link, it is encapsulated in HDLC-like frames.
The physical interface of Netcom is available on the two Ethernet (repeater) 10
Base-T ports to connect to other Harris equipment. The two connectors allow
for daisy chain and NMS connections.
The Netcom is available over HDLC links (HDLC Port) as well to connect to
MicroStar

equipment and supports the following applications:


Local and remote login
SCAN
IP and ARP
Network topology
Asynchronous data
The asynchronous data channel is a networking interface intended to transport
foreign network management protocols through a Harris Microwave network.

The following assumptions are made about the foreign network management
protocol:
Only one piece of equipment can send data on the data channel at any
given moment for the broadcast configuration.
The protocol used is RS-232, 1 start bit, 1 stop bit and up to 8 bits per
character.
No hardware handshake is needed.
The data channel is not intended to carry synchronous or isochronous
data.
The data channel can be configured for two types of virtual circuits:
Point-to-point (1:1)
Broadcast (1:N)
When a point to point (or 1:1) virtual circuit is established between two
Network Elements (NEs) on a network, the data channel ports of both NEs are
connected together. When this method is used, the data that enters the data
port of a NE goes out of the data port of the other and vice versa. There can be
many point to point virtual circuits in a Harris network. The network
administrator must take care to avoid bottlenecks when designing these virtual
circuits.
When a broadcast (or 1:N) virtual circuit is established in a Harris network,
all the data channel ports that do not already participate in a point to point
virtual circuit are connected together. When this method is used, the data that
enters in the data port of a NE goes to the data port of all the NEs in the
network. The NEs that participate in a point to point virtual circuit are
excluded from the broadcast virtual circuit. There can be only one
broadcast virtual circuit in a Harris network.
The data channel traffic is carried to other NEs over the NETCOM service
channel utilizing all available NETCOM ports and in accordance with NETCOM
routing protocols.

As shown in Figure 3-2, the HHT has an 11-key keypad, four function keys, and
a 4-line by 20-column alphanumeric readout (display).
The numeric keys (keys 0 through 9) are used for keying in numeric values.
They are also used for the following functions:
The 2, 4, 6, and 8 numeric keys are also used as arrow keys and are used
to scroll up (8 key), down (2 key), page-up (4 key), and page-down (6
key) through the menus. Page-up and page-down move the display four
lines up and down respectively.
The 5 numeric key is used as a HOME key, which closes the existing
menu and returns to the MAIN menu.
The ENTER key is used to initiate the execution of a selected menu function or
register a numeric value.
The function keys (F1, F2, F3, and F4) are used to execute menu functions that
appear as soft keys on the last line in applicable menus. Function key F1
corresponds to the first soft key selection, F2 to the second, F3 to the third,
and F4 to the fourth. Refer to Figure 3-2 for the location of the soft keys in
the display.

3-4 Configuring and Operating the Radio
VT-100 Terminal or PC
Connect the VT-100 terminal or PC to Port 2 on the IDU as shown in Figure 3-
1. You will need an RJ-45 to RS-232 cable or a RJ-45 cable with a RS-232
adapter. For pinout information, refer to Appendix A in the Radio
Installation manual, IMN-904007-Exx.
Port 1 or Port 2 can be used with a standard VT-100 terminal or a PC with
software that emulates a VT-100; Port 2 is pre-configured at 9600 baud. All
Windows PCs have HyperTerminal which will allow you to emulate a VT-100
terminal. To use HyperTerminal, go to Programs > Accessories >
Communication > HyperTerminal from the Windows Start menu.
The VT-100 or PC communications port must be configured as follows:
The layout of a typical PC keyboard is shown in Figure 3-3. You will need to use
the numeric keys for entering numeric values and the arrow keys to scroll up
and down.
The RETURN key is used to initiate the execution of a selected menu function
or to register a numeric value.
The period key (.) is used as the HOME key.
The F1, F2, F3, and F4 keys serve as the four function keys that represent the
soft keys in the display. The soft key EXIT will return the display back to the
previous menu.

Moving from Menu to Menu
Once a terminal is connected the operator simply uses certain keys to move
from menu to menu. The starting point is the main menu as seen in Figure 3-4
when using a VT-100 terminal or a PC emulation. If you are using the hand-
held keypad, only three lines will appear at a time so you will need to use the
arrow keys to scroll down. To access the sub-menus, use the arrow-key to scroll

For more information on menus, please refer to Chapter 6 and Chapter 7. The
entire menu tree is listed in Chapter 6; Chapter 7 contains explanations of all
the menu items arranged in alphabetical order.
Path Notation
This manual uses a short-form notation convention to designate menu items.
To designate a particular item, the item name is given plus the names of all the
menus between the MAIN menu and the item. For example, ALARM > PATH
> RSL LOW designates the RSL LOW menu item in the ALARM branch.
Selecting menu options
Many of the menus provide a number of optional operations. For example the
CONTROL > TRANSMIT > TX MUTE item provides two options: ON
(normal) and OFF.
In the CONTROL branch these options are shown on the display. Also shown
on the display is the standard EXIT option as a soft key position on the bottom
line of the screen. To select a soft key option, press the F key that corresponds
to the option (see Figure 3-2 or Figure 3-3).
In the CONFIGURATION branch, options appear in the NEW VAL field of a
selection screen (see Figure 3-5) that appears when the corresponding
parameter is selected from the menu. The operator uses the PREV and NEXT
keys to bring the required value into the NEW VAL field, then presses EXEC to
select it as the new configuration value.
Figure 3-5: Configuration Option Selection Screen
User Authorization
The TRuepoint radio has a user authorization feature that limits access to
multiple features including the control and configuration menus.
In order to restrict access to the menus in the HHT, you will need to go to
CONFIGURATION > ENABLE LOGIN and turn it ON. You will then need to
logout of the system. Once ENABLE LOGIN is turned ON, when you go to use
the HHT a new screen will appear asking for your user name and password.

When you receive your radio, the default user name is
admin and the default password is 12345.
If you want to limit access to the control and configuration menus for a
particular user account, go to the CONFIGURATION > USER
AUTHORIZATION menu item, create or select the appropriate user, and then
select NO under CONTROL ACCESS and CONFIG ACCESS.
If you forget or lose your password you can use the FORGOT PASSWORD?
feature on the main menu. In order to access the FORGOT PASSWORD?
menu, when the screen appears asking for your user name and password you
will need to select VIEW in the bottom right hand corner (F4). Selecting VIEW
will allow you into the system as a guest. Once you have logged in as a guest,
FORGOT PASSWORD? will appear in the menu after CONFIGURATION.
Select it, and an access code will appear. You must then call Customer Service
with this access code. Customer Service will give you a 1 time use only password
that will allow you to login to the system and fix your password.
The NE address
The network element (NE) address is unique to each radio in the network and
corresponds to an IP address. The embedded control software uses the NE
ADDRESS item in the main menu to enter the address of the remote radio to
be operated. The NE ADDRESS item in the configuration menu is used to set
the NE ADDRESS of the local radio.The selection screen for configuring the
NE address is similar to the one shown in Figure 3-5, with the difference that
it allows the operator to enter an NE address value in the NEW VAL field before
pressing EXEC.
TRuepoint 4000 Operators Interface March 2006
3-8 Configuring and Operating the Radio
Using the Web-CIT
The Web-CIT is an embedded Web based CIT providing the ability to configure,
control, and administer the system. This tool utilizes web technology to control
and monitor the radio system through a direct connect, or remotely through the
customers TCP/IP network. Radio pairs, both local and remote, are visible to
the operator from the same screen.
On the TRuepoint SPU, either of the network management ports allows you
to connect a PC to the radio in order to access the Web-CIT. The Web-CIT will
work with either Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 and higher or Netscape
Navigator 7.0 and higher.
The Web-CIT is powered by the GoAhead Web Server.
Security Considerations
Depending on the security measures at a given site, a customer may need to
adjust their security permissions in order to use the Web-CIT. If this is the case,
users should be aware that configuring a web browser to run the Web-CIT could
create a security breach when accessing the Internet if the security settings are
lowered. Users should reset their security levels back to the higher levels before
using the same computer to access the Internet for usage other than the
Web-CIT.
In no event shall HARRIS CORPORATION, its staff
and/or partners be liable to the user for any
special, consequential, indirect or similar
damages, including any lost profits or lost data
arising out of such a security breach. The user is
solely responsible for taking all protection
measures necessary for achieving a secure
connection before, during, and after the use of the
Web-CIT software.

Connecting to the Radio: TRuepoint Web-CIT
There are two ways to connect to the radio with TRuepoint Web-CIT.
Option 1:
1. Connect a PC to a network management port on the IDU as shown in
Figure 3-1. You will need a standard ethernet cable. In Windows XP, the
DHCP client must be active and you use Obtain an IP address
automatically.
2. Go to your internet browser and type in the IP address that corresponds to
the NE address; the default NE address of a new radio is 999 so the IP
address will be 10.9.99.1.
3. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password. If this is the
first time you are connecting to the system, the default user name is
admin and the default password is 12345. If you have both a local and a
remote site, you will need to login to both sites.
4. Once you have entered your user name and password, Figure 3-6 will
appear. Note that the local radio is on the left side of the main frame and
the remote radio is on the right side.
5. Go to CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM and enter a new NE address. Make
sure you click the APPLY button. Once you have done this, you will need to
reboot the Controller.
6. Once this is done and the system has rebooted, go to your internet browser
and type in the IP address that corresponds to the number you entered as
the NE address. If you entered 111 as the NE address, for example, then
your IP address should be 10.1.11.1; if you entered 232 then your IP address
should be 10.2.32.1.
Option 2:
1. Using the Harris Keypad or another VT-100 compatible terminal, enter the
NE ADDRESS in the CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT
menu. The NE ADDRESS must be a number from 001 to 999.
2. Still using the Keypad or VT-100 compatible terminal, go to CONTROL >
REBOOT SYSTEM.
3. Connect a PC to a network management port on the IDU as shown in
Figure 3-1. You will need a standard ethernet cable.
4. Once this is done and the system has rebooted, go to your internet browser
and type in the IP address that corresponds to the number you entered as
the NE address. If you entered 111 as the NE address, for example, then
your IP address should be 10.1.11.1; if you entered 232 then your IP address
should be 10.2.32.1.

5. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password. If this is the
first time you are connecting to the system, the default user name is
admin and the default password is 12345. If you have both a local and a
remote site, you will need to login to both sites.
6. Once you have entered your user name and password, Figure 3-6 will
appear. Note that the local radio is on the left side of the main frame and
the remote radio is on the right side.
Figure 3-6: TRuepoint CIT main page
No matter which option you choose, if you use the
PC you are using to connect to the radio for other
purposes, you should release and renew your IP
connection before entering the IP address of the
Web-CIT. To do this, go to the DOS command
window and type in ipconfig /release and then
ipconfig /renew.

2. A graphical representation of the LEDs that are on the physical units
appears at the top of the main frame for both the Local and Remote site.
See Figure 3-8, Item 2. Note that if the computer icon next to the word
Local or Remote is flashing blue, the connection is up. If the computer
icon is red, the connection has been lost.
3. On the main page, when you first log in to the system, a graphical
representation of the hardware for both the local and remote site appears.
See Figure 3-8, Item 3.
4. To change the color scheme, go to ADMINISTRATION > COLOR
SCHEME. As seen in Figure 3-9, you have three choices: red, blue and
green. Blue is the default. When you change the color on the local side, it
changes the color on the local window and the navigation bars. When you
change the color on the remote side, it changes the remote window. See
Figure 3-8 and Figure 3-9 for examples of using two different color
schemes.
5. When you select an item from the menu bar such as ADMINISTRATION
> COLOR SCHEME as seen in Figure 3-9, a HELP button appears at the
bottom of the page. If you want help for this particular screen, clicking on
the HELP button will take you directly to that information in the HELP

Configuration Details
Once you have connected to the radio you will need to configure the system.
The following instructions are for using the Web-CIT to configure the system;
the menu path in the HHT will be listed at the end of each section.
NE Address
If you have not entered a unique IP address for the radio, do so at this time. See
Connecting to the Radio: TRuepoint Web-CIT on page 3-9.
System Information
The first three entries on the CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM page are NAME,
LOCATION, and CONTACT. Please note that these fields can contain up to 126
characters only.
Tx & RX Frequencies
Go to CONFIGURATION > RADIO > FREQUENCY and set your Tx and Rx
frequencies. The default frequency for both Tx and Rx is 0 kHz so it is
important that you enter a correct frequency in the appropriate box. Entries
should be made in kHz.
The following frequencies are available for the existing RFU bands:

Used Capacity
Go to CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM.
For every system, the software will detect the maximum available capacity of
the system. This number is displayed as a non-editable entry in
CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM as SYSTEM CAPABILITY.
If you so choose, you can reduce the number of tributaries that will be used by
the system. This is available in the USED CAPACITY drop-down menu.
If you set the USED CAPACITY to a lower number than the SYSTEM
CAPABILITY, then the actual capacity of the system will be equal to the lower
number. For example, if you have a maximum capacity of 16E1, but you only
want to use 8 tributaries at this time, then you would set your USED
CAPACITY at 8 E1. Your SYSTEM CAPABILITY will still appear as 16E1.
If you would like to upgrade your maximum capacity, please call your local
Technical Assistance Center.

TPC Mode
Transmit Power Control (TPC) allows you to adjust the TX output power to the
necessary level in order to provide reliable signal reception at the remote end
of the RF link.
Go to CONFIGURATION > RADIO > TPC and select the TPC mode: Manual
Control, ATPC, or DTPC. The configuration points mentioned below can be
entered on this page as well.
HHT: CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM > OUTPUT POWER > TPC MODE.
Manual Control is the default mode, and allows you to adjust the Tx output
power to the desired level, by setting the Tx Static Attenuation. The range is
from 0-30 dB, in 0.5 dB increments.
ATPC mode allows the radio to operate at a low output power that is enough to
provide reliable signal reception at the remote end of the RF link. However,
when a fading condition occurs and the RSL at the remote end is approaching
the system threshold, the Tx output power increases to a predetermined high
output power level. When the fading condition is over and the RSL at the
remote end is far enough below the system threshold, the Tx output power
returns to the low level.
To set up ATPC, you must set the nominal power level using Tx Static
Attenuation. Then you define the Remote ATPC Low Threshold Offset (0-
25 dB) and the Boost Step (0-15 dB). When the RSL level drops below the
system threshold plus the ATPC low threshold, the receiver will set the boost
request flag and send it to the transmitter. If allowed, the transmitter will
increase the Tx output power by the number set in the Boost Step. When the
RSL at the receiver increases above the system threshold plus the ATPC high
threshold, the receiver clears the boost request flag and sends it back to the
transmitter, which in turn returns Tx output power bock to the nominal power
level.
Figure 3-11 illustrates various parameters related to ATPC mode; the dashed
line shows that without ATPC, the RSL would go below the system threshold.
TRuepoint 4000 Operators Interface March 2006
3-18 Configuring and Operating the Radio
Figure 3-11: ATPC Parameters
DTPC mode allows you to specify a target remote end RSL value that provides
reliable signal reception. Tx output power is automatically adjusted to maintain
this specified target remote end RSL, by comparing the received remote RSL
with the Remote Nominal RSL value and adjusting accordingly.
The nominal power level set via Tx Static Attenuation serves as a starting
point. Tx output power can be decreased if nominal power is not needed to
maintain the Remote Nominal RSL value, but the Tx output power will never
go above the nominal power level.
Figure 3-12 illustrates various parameters related to DTPC mode; the dashed
line shows RSL as it would be without DTPC.

Network Management
Harris point-to-point equipment is designed to work with standard protocols
over standard media and with Harris legacy products using the proprietary
SCAN and Netcom protocols. TRuepoint supports an IP network (the Web-CIT,
SNMP, FTP), a Netcom network, and a SCAN network.
You can connect a TRuepoint radio to other Harris point-to-point radios via the
Ethernet port to another Ethernet port, via the HDLC serial port to a RPTR_IN
serial port, or via the serial Port 1 to a SPUR (AUX) port.
Figure 3-14: Example of a network with Netcom connections
to other Harris radios
Figure 3-15: Connection Points from Figure 3-17
The Netcom protocol uses an addressing scheme based upon the NE address.
Each radio in the network should have its own NE address and messages can
be sent to any node in the network by using that NE address. Each radio also
needs an IP address which can be assigned manually or automatically based on
the NE address.

Each radio has an Ethernet IP interface as well that has an IP address which can
be assigned manually, automatically based on the Netcom NE address, or
automatically using a DHCP Server.
Network Configuration
For Network configuration, go to CONFIGURATION > IP ROUTING >
NETWORK INTERFACES in the Web-CIT. The NETCOM IP INTERFACE
should be set to ENABLE. Under MODE, select Auto or Manual. Auto is the
default and will automatically generate the Netcom IP address and subnet
mask for each radio based on the NE address. For example, if the radios NE
address is 333, then the Netcom IP address will be 172.23.33.1. If you select
Manual, you will need to enter a Netcom IP address and subnet mask in the
appropriate boxes.
Still in CONFIGURATION > IP ROUTING > NETWORK INTERFACE, the
ETHERNET IP INTERFACE should be set to ENABLE as well. Under MODE,
select Auto, Manual, or DHCP Client.
Auto is the default and will automatically generate the Ethernet IP address and
subnet mask for each radio based on the NE address. For example, if the radios
NE address is 333, then the Ethernet IP address will be 10.3.33.1. See Figure 3-
16.
You also can elect to use the DHCP Server in the radio in order to configure
other equipment such as a laptop or NMS. The DHCP Server will generate an IP
address that in turn will grant a lease to a laptop (or other equipment) plugged
into the Ethernet port on the radio. To use this option, select Auto for MODE,
and then ENABLE the DHCP SERVER.
If you select Manual, you will need to enter a Ethernet IP address and subnet
mask in the appropriate boxes.
If you select DHCP Client, the radio becomes a DHCP client on your pre-
existing network and the Ethernet IP interface will request an IP address from
a DHCP server. You will need to have a DHCP server on your network to use this
option.
If you reconfigure the IP settings (change from Auto to
DHCP Client for example), it is recommended that you
perform a software boot.

Routing
Each TRuepoint radio can be viewed as an IP router with two interfaces: Ethernet
and Netcom.
In order to configure the router, the user has three options. The first option is
to disable routing altogether and use a piece of third party equipment at each
site to connect to each radios Ethernet interface for management.
The second option is to define the network with a user-defined static routing
table on each radio. This is applicable to very small networks only since there
are 10 maximum static routes that can be defined. To use this option, go to

STATIC ROUTES.
The third option involves dynamic routing. The TRuepoint radio supports the
RIP dynamic routing protocol which is a simple dynamic routing protocol that
will broadcast all of its known routes periodically to the rest of the network.
Each router receiving these updates can update their own routing tables with
this information. The RIP daemon on the TRuepoint radio is configured to
supply routes when more than one interface is enabled on the TRuepoint radio.
The routes can be selectively broadcast on either or both of the Netcom or
Ethernet interfaces. When enabled, routing updates will be sent every 30
seconds. Any received route that is not updated within 180 seconds will expire
and be removed from the routing table. The RIP daemon can be configured in
two different modes: disabled or Version 2. Version 1 is not supported. The
disabled mode disables all RIP operations. Version 2 sends and receives only
RIPv2 updates which support classless addressing and variable length subnet
masks.

SNMP
Each TRuepoint radio has an embedded SNMP agent on board allowing the
user to configure, control and monitor the system using a remote station that
supports SNMP Network Management.
To set up SNMP managers, go to SECURITY > SNMP MANAGERS. To set up
trap destinations go to SECURITY > TRAP DESTINATIONS. You may enter
up to 10 SNMP managers and up to 10 trap destinations. For a complete list of
traps, please see Figure 6-9.
HHT: CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT > SNMP.
If you would like to change the SNMP community names from the default, you
will need to use the HHT or PC/VT-100 terminal. The TRAP community name
can be changed from either the HHT or the Web-CIT.
To change the SNMP read community name from its default, public, go to
CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT > SNMP >
COMMUNITY STRINGS > GET COMMUNITY. Enter the new name.
To change the SNMP read-write community name from its default, private,
go to CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT > SNMP >
COMMUNITY STRINGS > SET COMMUNITY. Enter the new name.
To change the TRAP community name from its default, truepoint, go to
CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT > SNMP > TRAP
PARAMETERS> TRAP COMMUNITY. Enter the new name. If using the
Web-CIT, go to CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT > TRAP
PARAMETERS.

Single-host Upgrade
The Single-host Upgrade allows you to upgrade the software and firmware in a
specific Harris radio. See Figure 4-2.
The IP address of your PC must be configured as an SNMP MANAGER in the
system in order to upgrade.
1. Click on the ... box and select the appropriate Upgrade Pack file. This will
be a .zip file. Click on the Detail button for the contents of the Upgrade
Pack file.
2. Enter the IP Address and SNMP Set Community name of the target radio.
3. Press the Connect button to get a SNMP connection to the target radio.
Once the connection is established, the software and firmware information
will be retrieved from that radio and the Primary Bank Release version and
Alternate Bank Release versions will appear. Click on the Detail button for
more information on the Primary Bank content and the Alternate Bank
content.
4. Enter your user name and password for the target radio. You must be an
authorized user with FTP access allowed. See User Authorization on
page 3-19 for more information.
5. Click Download to remove all of the files in the Alternate Bank and replace
with all new files; click Upgrade to replace only the files that have changed.
When the process is done a new window should appear stating that the
download/upgrade process was successful.
6. To switch memory banks (restart the radio with the alternate memory
bank) select Alternate System or Alternate Software and then press the
Execute button. A warning message will pop up; click Yes to continue the
process.
The Alternate System option will download the firmware
files as well as switching the Primary and Alternate
banks. This option will interrupt traffic. The Alternate
Software option only switches the Primary and Alternate
banks and thus does not affect traffic.
7. If you only want to download the firmware files to the cards but do not
want to switch the software banks, select Upgrade Firmware. This will
upgrade the cards from the firmware contained in the Primary Bank.
TRuepoint 4000 Operators Interface March 2006
4-4 Software & Firmware Upgrades
The Upgrade Firmware option cannot be accessed
unless the Alternate Software option has already been
executed.
8. Once the restart process has finished, the Equipment, Primary Bank
content, and Alternate Bank content boxes under Detail will be updated.
Capacity Upgrade
A capacity upgrade is available if you want to upgrade to 4, 8, or 16 E1 from a
lower capacity.
To order an upgrade, or to activate an upgrade previously purchased, please
call Customer Service at 1-514-421-8333, option 2 or email cs-order
@harris.com.
You will need to provide your Upgrade Information number and Upgrade kit
number. The available Upgrade kit part numbers are listed in Table 4-1.

Relays & External Alarms
The SPU provides four relay contacts. These relays can be programmed to
indicate an alarm status or to control local site equipment. In addition, the SPU
can be ordered with an orderwire installed.
The following relay inputs are available: MANU CTL, MAJOR ALARM,
MINOR ALARM, SIGNAL DEGRADED, CONTROL ACTIVE, SYNC LOSS,
TRIB INPUT LOSS, RSL LOW, ERR SEC ALM, BER ALM, CABLE, RFU,
SPU, ATPC HIGH POWER, TPC TIME LIMIT and OPT OW RING
1
.
The SPU also provides two digital inputs for local site alarm monitoring. These
alarms are reported in the Web-CIT or HHT the same way that the radio alarms
are reported.
Web-CIT
If the pages in the Web-CIT do not look correct, or pages are partially loaded
only, you should clear your internet cache and reboot your browser.
You also may need to clear your internet cache after a software upgrade.
Glossary of Alarms
1. If you assign OPT OW RING as an alarm relay, this alarm will appear when the phone set at the site is

GLOSSARY
This chapter provides an expanded description
(as appropriate) of most of the acronyms used in the
TRuepoint 4000 user documentation.
AGC Automatic Gain Control
ATPC
Automatic Transmit Power Control A feature of digital microwave radio
equipment that adjusts the transmitter output power based on path fading
detected at the receiver.
DHCP Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DTPC
Dynamic Transmit Power Control A feature enabling the regulation of a target
receive signal level by remotely and proportionally controlling the corresponding
transmitter output power level.
FTP File Transfer Protocol
HDLC
High-level Data Link Control A bit-oriented synchronous data link layer
protocol developed by ISO. HDLC specifies a data encapsulation method on
synchronous serial links using frame characters and checksums.
HHT
Handheld terminal A Harris user interface device (also known as a display
keypad). It allows the user to configure and monitor the radio when not using
CIT or Web-CIT.
IF Intermediate Frequency
IP
Internet Protocol A method or protocol by which data is sent from one
computer to another on the Internet.

MSUU
Microwave Software Upgrade Utility A Harris proprietary software utility for
upgrading the software and firmware of the TRuepoint radios. Uses Microsoft
Windows 2000

Service Pack 4 or later.


MUX
Multiplexer A circuitry that combines two or more information-carrying
channels for transmission over one channel, by using frequency division or time
division techniques
NMS Network Management System such as Harris StarView.
QAM
Quadrature Amplitude Modulation A method of combining two amplitude-
modulated signals into a single channel, thereby doubling the effective
bandwidth.
QPSK
Quadrature Phase Shift Keying A digital frequency modulation technique used
for sending data over coaxial cable networks.
Restricted
Area
A location qualified in accordance with IEC Standard 60950-1 as providing an
access that can only be gained by Skilled Persons or users who have been
instructed about the reasons for the restriction applied to the location and
about any precautions to be taken; and
access achieved through the use of a Tool, lock and key, or other means of
security, and is controlled by the authority responsible for the location.
RFU Radio Frequency Unit The radio unit that is installed mainly outdoors.
RIP Routing Information Protocol
RMS Rack Mounting Space
RPC Radio Processing Card
RSL Received Signal Level
RSSI
Received Signal Strength Indicator A parameter returned from a transceiver
that gives a measure of the RF signal strength, either uplink or downlink.
RTPC Remote Transmit Power Control A feature that allows an operator to access a
remote transmitter and insert an attenuation in the transmitted signal. This is
done through the HHT or Web-CIT. The RTPC tolerance is +/- 2 dB.
Skilled
Person
A skilled person is considered to have the necessary knowledge and practical
experience of electrical and radio engineering to appreciate the various hazards
that can arise from working on radio transceivers, and takes appropriate
precautions to ensure the safety of personnel.
This individual is considered to be a skilled person only if he/she is competent
to take responsibility for both his/her safety and for that of unskilled personnel
under his/her immediate supervision, when working on the transceiver.
Training requirements for a skilled person should not only be confined to
technical matters and, preferably, should include first-aid treatment, especially
methods of artificial resuscitation: respiration and cardiac compression (heart
massage).

management by exchanging information between equipment on a network.
SPU
Signal Processing Unit (Also referred to as IDU) The indoor rack-mounted unit
that contains plug-in modules for handling and processing the signal received
from the RFU.
TCP/IP
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol A standard that provides
connectivity across computer platforms ranging from mainframes to
Macintoshes. These computers can exchange data when connected over a
compatible network scheme, such as Ethernet or X.25. Originally developed by
the Department of Defense in the 70s, these protocols are now a de facto
industry standard.
Web-CIT
Web-Craft Interface Tool A Harris proprietary software utility for monitoring
and controlling the operation and configuration of the TRuepoint radios.
Located on the TRuepoint Controller, any of the two RPTR/NMS ports allows
for connecting a PC running the Web-CIT server that is embedded in the radio.
This web server stores HTML pages and applets that provide a user interface for
monitoring and controlling any TRuepoint Network Element, using the
Microsoft

Internet Explorer, version 5.5 and later.
