AVAILABLE TOOLS
AVAILABLE TOOLS
The following is an overview of the tools that are used in the TRuepoint™
system and software.

System Configuration/Management

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

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 customer’s TCP/IP network, and displays the current status of
both the local and remote units.

Harris Corporation TRuepoint™ 5000 Operator’s Interface


2-2 Available Tools

The Web-CIT has five main sections:


• Fault Management
• Configuration
• Administration
• Performance
• Security

Netcom

The Netcom protocol carries information inside a Harris equipment network.


Its minimum capacity (or bandwidth) allocated in the overhead of the radio is
6 x 64 kbit/s = 384 kbit/s (depending on the capacity of the radio) up to 8 x 64
kbit/s + 20 kbit/s = 532 kbit/s for higher bit rates (3DS3).
This protocol encapsulates all the functions such as SCAN (System Control and
Alarm Network), Network Management, O/W, and Data Channel. The payload
or bandwidth is dynamically allocated to any of these services; this means that
if the O/W and 19.2 kbit/s data channels are 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,
except in the case of SONET and SDH). 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
• Data Channel
• Service channel digital bridge
• Object exchange
• Orderwire signalling
• Network topology

TRuepoint™ 5000 Operator’s Interface September 2004


System Configuration/Management 2-3

StarView™

The StarViewTM Element Management System provides tools to manage your


Harris radio networks from a single-operator Windows NT or Windows 2000
workstation. StarView allows you to communicate directly with legacy Harris
radio equipment by means of an SNMP proxy agent and with newer Harris
radio equipment by means of embedded SNMP agents. StarView’s features
include:
• A graphical interface

AVAILABLE TOOLS
• Network status that allows up to the minute feedback on network
performance
• Alarm status that allows immediate feedback on your network's health
• Local and remote connectivity with Harris radio equipment
• Online help for easy access to StarView operation information

FarScan™

FarScan™ is a user-friendly Windows® based SCAN/SNMP proxy which


monitors and controls Harris microwave radio alarms directly via a standard
serial communications port using Harris' proprietary SCAN (System Control
and Alarm Network) protocol or SNMP protocol.
SNMP protocol allows remote connectivity through use of IP Networking to an
SNMP based network management system. The SNMP module is optionally
available and can be co-hosted on the same computer as FarScan.
FarScan performs the following primary functions:
• Manual commands
• Polling (AutoPoll and SelectPoll)
• Reporting
• FarScan networking
• Paging

Harris Corporation TRuepoint™ 5000 Operator’s Interface


2-4 Available Tools

Paperless Chart Recorder (PCR)

Paperless Chart Recorder (PCR) is a software-based diagnostic tool that


permits remote access to the operational data that is stored on the radio. The
radio’s computer is capable of storing selected alarms and events as well as
tracing the received signal power level (RSL) of the radio for set periods of time.
PCR provides the ability to upload and view this history of alarms, events and
RSL activity using FTP protocol.

History Viewer

The history feature provides the ability to monitor and log events for further
analysis. History information can be uploaded through the SCAN protocol and
stored in a specific record format. Each record contains alarms, analog values,
and a time stamp (100 ms resolution from the boot time).

A reboot or a power-off of the Controller erases


the history information.

This feature is available through the Paperless Chart Recorder (PCR).

Software Download/Upgrade

Microwave Software Upgrade Utility

The Microwave Software Upgrade Utility (MSUU) allows customers to upgrade


the radio with a software upgrade pack. The MSUU provides a user-friendly
interface for connecting to the radio and initiating the upgrade process. It
provides the ability to do a direct upgrade to an individual radio, a direct flash
upgrade through a MMC card reader, or an upgrade utilizing the radio’s ESCAN
interface.
The MSUU is designed to work with a PC running Microsoft Windows® 2000,
Service Pack 4 or later.

3-2 Configuring and Operating the Radio

Using the hand-held/VT-100 terminal

The hand-held terminal/Harris keypad or any other VT-100 compatible


terminal interacts with the embedded control software in the radio and
connects to the radio through Port 2 on the Controller module. Once
connected, a user will see a number of menus and managed object screens that
are linked together in a tree. The operator uses key strokes to move from menu
to menu and to change parameters. To order a Harris keypad, see the part list
in the SPU Installation manual, IMN-903002-Exx.

Connecting to the Radio: Hand-Held or PC/VT-


100 Terminal

Hand-Held Terminal Unit (HHT)


Connect the HHT to Port 2 on the IDU as shown in Figure 3-1.
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.

Configuring and Operating the Radio: Hand-Held


or PC/VT-100 Terminal

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
through the menu until the desired sub-menu is aligned with the cursor. Then
press the return or enter key to display the selected menu. Repeat this
procedure on the item that you wish to view or change. To return to the
previous menu press F4 (EXIT). To return to the MAIN menu press HOME (.).

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 A LOW designates the RSL A 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

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. The
embedded control software and FarScan™ network control software use this
address to select remote radios for control and monitoring operations. 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.

Using the Web-CIT 3-7

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 10 Base-T ports on the Controller
module 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.

3-8 Configuring and Operating the Radio

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 10 Base-T port on the IDU as shown in Figure 3-1. You
will need a standard ethernet cable.
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 10 Base-T 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.

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. In this example, the picture shows a Local site with
a Main unit that has a T1/E1 Mux, a Modem, and a Controller, an Option
Card, plus a Protection Unit while the Remote site just has a Main Unit.
4. When you select an item from the menu bar such as CONFIGURATION >
SYSTEM as seen in Figure 3-7, 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 database.
5. 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

Used Capacity

Go to CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM.


For every system, the software will detect from the MUX the maximum capacity
of the system. This number is displayed as a non-editable entry in
CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM as MUX Maximum Capacity (System
Capability in the HHT).
If you have a T1 or E1 system, however, 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 MUX with a hardware key of 16T1, but you
only want to use 8 tributaries at this time, then you would set your USED
CAPACITY at 8 T1. Your SYSTEM CAPABILITY will still appear as 16T1.

When you change the USED CAPACITY, the system


treats it as a soft boot, thus clearing all controls. You will
need to reset your controls any time you change the
USED CAPCITY or perform a software reboot.

HHT: CONFIGURATION > SYSTEM > OUTPUT POWER > TPC MODE.
The
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 for RFU A and
RFU B. The range is from 0-30 dB, in 0.5 dB increments.

TRuepoint™ 5000 Operator’s Interface September 2004


Configuration Details 3-19

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

AND OPERATING
CONFIGURING
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.

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.

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.

Harris Corporation TRuepoint™ 5000 Operator’s Interface


3-24 Configuring and Operating the Radio

Network Configuration

For Network configuration, go to CONFIGURATION > NETWORK


MANAGEMENT in the Web-CIT. The NETCOM INTERFACE should be
ENABLED. 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 radio’s 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.
Figure 3-14: Example showing the Netcom addresses using
the Automatic configuration

Still in CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT, the ETHERNET


INTERFACE should be ENABLED as well. Under MODE, select Auto,
Manual, or DHCP.
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 radio’s
NE address is 333, then the Ethernet IP address will be 10.3.33.1. See Figure 3-
15.

TRuepoint™ 5000 Operator’s Interface September 2004


Network Management 3-25

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, you will need to have a DHCP server on your network. With
this option, 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.

AND OPERATING
CONFIGURING
THE RADIO
If you reconfigure the IP settings (change from Auto to
DHCP for example), it is recommended that you
perform a software boot.

Harris Corporation TRuepoint™ 5000 Operator’s Interface


3-26 Configuring and Operating the Radio

Routing

Each TRuepoint radio can be viewed as an IP router with three interfaces:


Ethernet, Netcom, and PPP.

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 radio’s 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
CONFIGURATION > IP ROUTING > STATIC ROUTING. Enter the IP address,
mask, and next IP router for each static route that you want to use.
HHT: CONFIGURATION > NETWORK MANAGEMENT > IP ROUTING >
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
four different modes: disabled, Version 1,Version 2, and Version 1 & 2. The
disabled mode disables all RIP operations. Version 1 sends and receives RIP
updates in RIPv1 format, which does not support classless addressing or
variable length subnet masks. Version 2 sends and receives only RIPv2 updates
which support classless addressing and variable length subnet masks. Version
1 & 2 supports sending RIPv2 updates and receiving RIPv1 or RIPv2 updates.

Network Management 3-27

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, trap destinations, or trap parameters, go to
SECURITY > SNMP. You may enter up to 10 SNMP managers and up to 10
trap destinations. For a complete list of traps, please see Figure 6-10.

Locks & Switches 5-7

Locks & Switches

In a protected system, the operator has the ability to lock or switch traffic to a
selected side which can be useful for isolating problems.
A lock switches traffic to a selected side and locks it there regardless of the
alarm condition. There are three lock controls:
• Lock TX
• Lock RxRFU/Decoder
• Lock RxDADE/Demux
A switch switches traffic only if it is safe to do so (no alarms are present). Traffic
is not locked on a selected side and switching is allowed. Traffic will switch back
automatically if any problem occurs. There are three manual switch controls:
• Switch TX
• Switch RxRFU/Decoder
• Switch RxDADE/Demux

Relays & External Alarms

TROUBLESHOOTING
The SPU controller provides four relay contacts. In addition, an Orderwire card
or an AlarmRelay card can be placed in the option slots. The optional
AlarmRelay card provides either 6 or 12 additional relay contacts. These relays
can be programmed to indicate an alarm status or to control local site
equipment.
The following relay inputs are available: RFU ALARM, SPU ALARM, ATPC
HIGH POWER, TPC TIME LIMIT, RX/DECDR, DMUX/DMD, TX SWITCH,
OPT 1 OW RING1, OPT 2 OW RING, MANU CTL, MAJOR ALARM, MINOR

The SPU controller 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. The optional AlarmRelay card provides
either 12 or 30 digital inputs.

1. If you assign OPT 1 OW RING as an alarm relay, this alarm will appear when the phone set at the site

between in-phase and quadrature symbols, while four-dimensional (4D) TCM
introduces dependency between symbols of two successive intervals.
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
TCP/IP
compatible network scheme, such as Ethernet or X.25. Originally developed by
