Sect ion 2

Over view
This section provides a brief overview of the GX2 system and a complete description of the
features and functions of the GX2-CM100B.
OmniStar GX2 equipment provides increased rack density, reliability, ease of operation, and
computer-aided troubleshooting through status monitoring. All OmniStar GX2 modules are
accessible and replaceable from the front of the GX2-HSG* equipment shelf, resulting in low
time-to-repair. An installed module mates with the equipment-shelf connectors for signal
interfacing and power. Fiber connections are made at the front of a module.
The GX2 design incorporates blind-mate RF connectors that enable all option modules to be hot
swapped with power applied to the equipment shelf without removing any RF cables. When
modules that receive or transmit laser signals are replaced with power applied to the equipment
shelf, ensure that all laser hazard warnings are strictly enforced.
You can install GX2 application modules in any of the sixteen universal slots in the GX2-HSG*.
The narrow slot on the far right is reserved for the GX2-CM100B control module.
The GX2-HSG* can have a mix of different GX2 application modules. Figure 2-1 illustrates an
equipment shelf populated with several different GX2* modules and the GX2-CM100B.

Module Description
The primary function of the GX2-CM100B control module is to monitor and control all of the
application modules located in the same chassis and report any alarms to the network
management system (NMS). Alarms are also reported through a text error message on the
optional SDU with optional display, if installed. You can control application modules through
the SDU or NMS. The GX2-CM100B also detects the addition or deletion of modules.
The GX2-CM100B provides a Quick-Swap Auto-Configure mode. In this mode, the
GX2-CM100B saves all previous settings for the application modules and then automatically
downloads those settings to a replacement module.
Other functions performed by the GX2-CM100B include:

Quick summary indication of application module status and the status of the power supplies
through three front-panel mounted tri-color LEDs

Self-diagnostics and identification of faults

Storage of the firmware upgrades, module identities, and other system information

External Communications
The GX2-CM100B enables you to communicate with any application module installed in the
same GX2-HSG*. It also enables you to view status information and send control commands.
There are three methods by which you can communicate with the other modules: the local
Ethernet port, the network Ethernet port, and the SDU.

The local 10Base-T Ethernet port is a front-panel RJ-45 connector for communication to a
local PC. Through this port, you can monitor and control all parameters for installed
modules using the provided SNMP interface. This connector has a reverse pin-out that
enables you to connect a computer with a straight-through cable. No cross-over cable is
required. This port is equipped with a DHCP server. There is no configuration necessary to
activate this server.

The network 10Base-T Ethernet port is a rear-panel RJ-45 jack that you can connect to a
network with a straight-through cable. Using an Ethernet hub, you can connect any number
of GX2 shelves to a PC or network.

GX2-CM100B Installation and Operation Manual

Overview

2-3

The local and network Ethernet ports enable you to use a web browser to monitor and
control the modules in the GX2-HSG*. The ports also support communication with an
SNMP management station. You can use both ports at the same time. A green LED is
provided at both connectors to indicate communications activity.

The GX2-CM100B also provides an interface to the optional SDU. To use the SDU, connect
the SDU cable to the mini-DIN connector on the GX2-CM100B front panel, as illustrated in
Figure 2-3 (Key 3). The GX2-CM100B controls the SDU operation and enables you to

Internal Communications
The GX2-CM100B module communicates with each of the application modules and the two
power supplies mounted in the rear of the GX2-HSG*. It recognizes each module and
acknowledges the insertion or deletion of modules in the same shelf. It monitors the alarm
status of each module and indicates the most serious alarm state present in the shelf on the
front-panel CM, PS1, or PS2 status LEDs.
The GX2-CM100B also communicates with each application module to relay commands or
gather data in response to user inputs. In addition, it can download new versions of firmware to
selected modules. There may be a brief interruption of service when the module reboots prior to
using the new firmware. You can elect to postpone the reboot immediately after the download is
complete and initiate it later during a maintenance window.

GX2-CM100B Installation and Operation Manual

Section 4

Operation
This section provides information on how to operate, configure, and use the various features of
the GX2-CM100B control module. The following topics are covered: Ethernet port IP Address
setup, GX2-CM100B MIBs, Quick Swap, Security Modes, Password setup, SDU menu
navigation and operation, downloading firmware, ISDN modem support setup, GX2 Lite
chassis, Web interface, and trap setup.

Ethernet Port IP Address Setup


The GX2-CM100B provides two Ethernet ports: a local port located on the front panel, and a
network port located at the rear of the device. The local port is intended to communicate directly
with a single user. The network port is designed to connect to a network of equipment. Each of
these two Ethernet ports must have a unique IP address and must be on separate subnets.
Before you connect multiple GX2-CM100B modules to a network, you must set the network IP
addresses to a unique setting. The following subsection provides default settings for IP
addresses, subnet masks, and gateway addresses for both the local and network ports.

Ethernet Port Default Settings:

Local Ethernet Port Address 192.000.000.001

Local Ethernet Subnet Mask 255.255.255.000

Network Ethernet Port Address 168.84.213.132

Network Ethernet Subnet Mask 255.255.000.000

Default Gateway Address 168.84.213.129

You can configure these fields using the SDU or the embedded web interface (See Appendix B,
Configuration and Embedded Web Page Access, for operation of the SDU or web interface).
After you configure the Ethernet ports, you must reset the GX2-CM100B for the new settings to
take effect. You can do this through the front-panel RESET button illustrated in Figure 2-3,
Key 4 or by using the remote command via the SNMP interface.

GX2-CM100B MIB
The GX2-CM100B management information base (MIB) documents are a set of documents used
by the developer to create an SNMP interface for the device. This interface is used by other
SNMP devices to communicate with the GX2-CM100B. These MIBs define each data object that
you can monitor and control with the GX2-CM100B.
The GX2-CM100B MIBs for all GX2 devices are available from Motorola. Contact your Motorola
CHS account representative for more information.

Operation

Using Quick Swap


The OmniStar GX2 products offer a quick-swap capability that auto-configures new modules
being inserted into the chassis with the setting of the old device that was in that slot. You can
control the quick swap feature using the SDU interface or through the SNMP interface. The
SNMP interface includes both the embedded web interface and network management software.
When this feature is activated for a given slot, the GX2-CM100B verifies that a module is
present in the selected slot, identifies the type of device, and retrieves and stores the current
settings of the selected module. As the GX2-CM100B detects that a module with quick swap
active has been replaced, it downloads the stored settings back into the replacement module. If
the new module being inserted into the chassis is not the same type as the existing module, the
quick swap operation will not take place. If a GX2-CM100B is removed from one chassis and
inserted into a different chassis, the quick swap operation is disabled for that control module.
This prevents accidentally transferring settings to the wrong module.
The GX2-CM100B ships from the factory with the quick-swap feature deactivated. The quick
swap feature is activated and deactivated on each slot independently. You can activate or
deactivate all slots at once using the all slots submenu under the Quick Swap Control on the
SDU. This all slots feature is not available through the Web Browser interface, but simple
drop-down boxes make the activation and deactivation of each slot quick and easy. You can also
activate the timer feature, which automatically activates quick-swap for all occupied slots.

Data Objects Used to Configure the Quick-Swap Feature


When using the Web Browser interface:

Enable By sending the Enable command, the GX2-CM100B will turn on the quick swap
feature and upload the given slots setting into its memory.

Disable Turns the quick swap feature off for the selected slot.

Force By sending the Force command, the GX2-CM100B will initiate the transfer of the
stored settings from the GX2-CM100Bs memory back into the given device.

When using the SDU:

SLOT X >ON the GX2-CM100B turns on the quick swap feature and uploads the given
slots setting into its memory.

SLOT X >OFF Turns the quick swap feature off for the selected slot.

SLOT X >FORCE The GX2-CM100B will initiate transfer of the stored settings from the
GX2-CM100Bs memory back into the given device. This feature is only available when
quick-swap is turned on for the given slot. (Note: the module will reset when using this
command.)

UPLOAD the module initiates transfer of its current settings to the GX2-CM100Bs
memory. This feature is only available when quick-swap is turned on for the given slot.

ALL SLOTS >QS ON the GX2-CM100B turns the quick-swap feature ON for all occupied
slots and uploads all occupied slots settings into its memory.

ALL SLOTS >QS OFF turns the quick-swap feature OFF for all slots.

An additional data object is used to set a time interval for updating the GX2-CM100Bs memory
with device settings. This update is applied to all devices/slots in which the quick swap feature
is currently enabled. You can set this object as follows.

ISDN Mode controls when the ISDN mode is on or off. The default setting is off.

ISDN Modem IP Address needs to be set to the IP address of a remote ISDN modem.
The value is defaulted to 0.0.0.0.

ISDN Trap Timeout configures the maximum connection time that the GX2-CM100B
can send traps to the remote modem IP address. This time starts when the first trap is
sent. This timer prevents any one GX2-CM100B from tying up the ISDN link for
indeterminate periods of time. The default setting is 120 seconds. The range for this
object is 0-3600.

ISDN Ping Timeout sets the timeout value of the Ping command. This ping
determines if an EMS is currently connected through the remote ISDN modem. The
default setting is 500 ms.

ISDN Backoff timer the time that the GX2-CM100B waits after the connection time
timer has expired. This provides time for other devices on the PBX network to
communicate with the EMS. The default setting is 120 seconds. The range for this object
is 0-3600.

You can modify each of the above data objects by entering the preferred setting in the
corresponding entry field and applying the change.

GX2 Lite Chassis


The GX2 Lite chassis must run revision K firmware or greater in the GX2-CM100B. All
features mentioned in this document are supported in the Lite chassis as described.
The Lite chassis accommodates three replaceable GX2 application modules and a GX2-CM100B.
The power supply is not a replaceable unit in this chassis.

Web Interface
The GX2-CM100B contains a web server that will serve up embedded web pages. You can use
these pages for controlling and monitoring all modules in the GX2 chassis. For a complete
description of configuration and operation of the web interface refer to Appendix B,
Configuration and Embedded Web Page Access.

Trap setup
The GX2-CM100B firmware detects faults for each application module installed in the chassis.
These faults are converted into SNMP traps and can be sent to a trap viewer or EMS. The
GX2-CM100B firmware enables you to configure up to five different trap locations. This is
accomplished by entering the IP address of a machine currently running trap viewing software
into one of the five trap destination fields located in the control modules network table.

Configuration and Embedded Web Page Access


The OmniStar GX2 web browser configuration tool enables you to monitor and control device
parameters using a standard web browser. This interface also enables you to configure the quick
swap feature and facilitate firmware upgrades, ISDN operation, security modes, and network IP
addresses and masks. Note, that this tool is not an Element/Network Management System.
Each GX2-CM100B in the system contains its own web server. When you connect into one of the
two Ethernet ports and enter the appropriate IP address, java applets are uploaded to the users
computer to provide a GUI interface. From this interface you can monitor and control each GX2
application module that is currently plugged into the chassis.

System Requirements
To successfully use the web browser configuration tool you must have:

An Ethernet connection

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher, or Netscape 5.0 or higher, with Java Runtime
Plug-in

GX2-CM100B with firmware revision G or later

Select J2SE 1.3.1_X for GX2-CM100B firmware versions L or earlier.

Select J2SE 1.5_X for GX2-CM100B firmware versions M or later.

To ensure that you can properly communicate between the GX2-CM100B and a host computer
using the front panel, you must set up the GX2-CM100B IP address and the host computers IP
address to be on the subnet. The subnet for the default front panel IP address (192.0.0.1) is
contained in the first three numbers of the IP address. We recommend that you change the host
computers IP address to 192.0.0.5 if the front panels IP address is at its default value.
If the host computer is connected to a network and, depending on the GX2-CM100Bs assigned
IP address, the network Ethernet port IP address, and the network Ethernet port mask, you
may have to modify the Gateway IP address. The system administrator should be able to
provide you with these parameters. To ensure that the changes made to the computers IP
address are incorporated successfully, you should reboot the computer.
To change the IP address using Windows 2000:
