Fault Finding
These procedures describe the most common fault-situations. It is important to find the defective unit in order to minimize time consumption for fault finding and traffic downtime. This is normally done based on alarms, meter readings and looping from Evolution Manager. It is impossible to make a block schematic that covers all possible faults, therefore the following block-diagrams only cover the most common problems. Note! The fault-finding needs to be performed by skilled engineers. It is also important to have system-knowledge and skills in the use of Evolution Manager tools like looping-facilities, alarm and performance logs. Potentional problems are also related to installation of IFU-ODU/XCVR cables and connectors. Water penetration, lightening, or mechanical stress, may give IFU-ODU/XCVR cable-problems. Sometimes it is difficult to find the reason for the problem since a faulty cable, connector, power supply and different XCVR-faults are giving exactly the same alarm-picture in Evolution Manager. Normally when the link connection is lost, the alarm-information from the remote station is also lost. Check if the IFU-ODU/XCVR cable is shorted or open, by measuring the resistance on the IFU-side of the cable. It is also recommended to measure -48 V on the IFU connector as well as on the ODU/ XCVR side of the cable. Whenever unscrewing the connector on the ODU/XCVR, make sure that it is always reconnected properly and protected from water penetration, by using the rubber sleeve or vulcanizing tape.

Front Panel Alarm Diagnostics


This is a simple procedure based on Unit-front LED and alarm status. The alarm status can be monitored from the Evolution Manager, Fault page. No units in the Evolution Series equipment is intended for field repair. A faulty unit is to be replaced with a new unit according to the requirements in the "Unit replacement" chapter. Note! Check all cable connections and that all units are completely seated in the IFU Basic Frame housing before further troubleshooting is performed. A red LED indicates alarm status on the unit. A blinking red LED indicates that the speciffic unit is placed in wrong slot according to "Unit Housekeeping". Complete LED description for each unit is described in section General/System Overview/IFU Overview. The SU LED (on Universal IFU) / Management LED (on Access IFU), will in addition act as a system alarm. If one of the AUX, Plug-in, RIU or FAN units have alarm, this LED will also indicate the alarm situation. The following alarm severities will give alarm indication on the front panel: MINOR MAJOR CRITICAL For a complete alarm lists see Appendices/Alarm Lists

Unit Replacement
The new unit must have exactly the same unit code (Code:) as the unit to be replaced. The unit revision (Rev:) is on the format "R1A" (revision 1A). The new unit must have the same or higher digit (1) on the revision tag to be compatible with the one to be replaced. The letter (A) is not significant for interchangeability. See a typical label below:

The Supervisory Unit stores a copy of the configuration and SW for the different units. If a unit is replaced, the configuration will be automatically downloaded from the Supervisory Unit to the new unit. Note! This equipment contains components which are sensitive to "ESD" (Electro Static Discharge). It is therefore essential that whenever disassembling the equipment and/or handling PC boards, special precautions to avoid ESD are made. These precautions include personnel grounding, grounding of work bench, grounding of tools and instruments as well as transport and storage in special antistatic bags and boxes.

IFU Basic Frame Replacement


Note! When a complete IFU Basic Frame is replaced, the traffic through this IFU will be broken. 1. Unplug the power connector(s) on the RIU unit(s). 2. Disconnect all cables on the IFU front carefully. Mark all cables to ensure that the cables can be reconnected to the correct terminals on the new IFU. 3. IF the IFU is mounted in an equipment rack, unscrew the IFU from the rack (four screws). 4. Pull the IFU out carefully. 5. Remove all plug-in units except the Fan unit (the FAN unit is part of the IFU Basic Frame). Replacement 1. Replace the plug-in units in the spare IFU Basic Frame. 2. Insert the new IFU in the Equipment rack (if rack mounted) carefully. Note! If the IFU is part of a system with more than 2 channels, make sure that the plate, covering the IFU rear connectors, is removed and slide the IFU to enter the corresponding connectors in the IFU shelf, without the use of excessive force. 3. Fasten the four screws. 4. Reconnect the front cables. 5. Reconnect the power cable(s). Note! Evolution Long Haul Systems: If an IFU is removed and reinserted (e.g. for maintenance reasons), the SU must be cold started afterwards to ensure that correct RPS system state is achieved.

IFU Units
Note! If the Radio system is protected (1+1, 2+1 etc.), manually switch the protection switching to the functioning channel (see Configuration/RPS/Manual Switch) before a RIU carrying traffick, is removed from the IFU. Otherwise the traffic can be broken. For SU replacement, see paragraph SU Replacement.

1. Unplug all cables on the unit to be replaced. 2. Unscrew the two "finger" screws that secure the unit to the IFU. A screwdriver may be used if necessary to unscrew the screws. 3. Remove the unit carefully from the IFU by pulling the screws. Replacement 1. Insert the new unit carefully. Ensure that the unit enters the guides inside the IFU and gently press the unit to enter the internal connectors without the use of excessive force. 2. Fasten the two screws with your fingers. Do not use a screwdriver. 3. Reconnect all cables.

SU Replacement
In addition to the steps in the paragraph above, it is important that the correct system configuration is reloaded from a backup file when the SU is replaced by a spare unit. (See Operation Section; Evolution Manager/Feature Description/Configuration/Backup). Replacement procedure 1. If possible, upload the current configuration from the faulty SU, by pressing the Upload button on the Configuration->Backup->Miscellaneous page. 2. Remove the faulty SU and insert the new SU. 3. If required, upgrade the SU Software on the new SU on the Configuration->Software->SW Download page. 4. Go to Configuration->Backup->Replace SU and select the uploaded tar archive from the faulty SU. Press the Download button. 5. Go to the Home page, and set the SU to active by pressing the Set current SU active button.

Note! To avoid traffic errors when replacing a faulty SU with a new SU, the new SU will automatically be set in "not active" state. 6. When the software is downloaded to the SU from the Configuration->Software->SW Download page, a preliminary license is activated for 90 days. To have a permanent license, a new license on the Configuration->Element-> licenses page, must be applied. The new license must be generated by Nera, based on the new SU serial no. and MAC address.

License Upgrade / Change


Features such as transmission capacity, ethernet traffic and ethernet wayside traffic, require a traffic lisence installed on the element.
