    System Manager System Maintenance System Planner System Information The user classes (protection with a passwords is possible) allow you to con-trol the management access and to assign functional responsibilities. An ad-ditional asset of the user classes is the protection of the NEs and the net-work from unintentional interventions, which might create disturbances and service interruptions. The UNEM is a workstation-based element and network manager for me-dium size to big UMUX networks. The UNEM supports distributed manage-ment functions in a multi-user environment.

    The UCST functionality is also implemented with the UNEM.

    Configuration Inventory management Performance control and monitoring Fault management Test functions and diagnostics The access to each UMUX is password protected (passwords are optional).

    The UCST and UNEM provide each an appropriate GUI (Graphical User In-terface) for the configuration, control and monitoring of the above functions. Local functions on the units prepare and provide the local data for the UCST / UNEM.

    Both managers can configure and manage the full range of the UMUX and DSL equipment.

    1-4 Technical Description Systems EN/LZTBU 220 104/2 RC

    Management interfaces

    The management access of the UCST and UNEM to the UMUX relies on 3 physical interfaces and, in UMUX networks, on the ECC which implements the Management Communication Network for UMUX.

    Depending on the type of intervention and management infrastructure one of the 3 physical interfaces is used:

    F-interface for point-to-point access: Mainly used for local commissioning of the UMUX or for on site fault de-bugging via UCST. The F-interface allows bit-rates up to 115200 bit/s for local access (The speed available depends on the driver section of the PC/computer and the length of the signal cables).

    The UCST / UNEM can also access the F-interface of the UMUX re-motely via a modem.

    To connect to the UMUX via the F-interface, the NE node address (IP address) is required.

    If required the F-interface can provide access to the EOC management communication channel. The bit-rate for EOC access is 9600 bit/s.

    QX-interface for Ethernet LAN access: The QX-interface is normally used for remote management access. How-ever, local commissioning via the QX-interface is possible, provided that your PC/computer features an Ethernet interface.

    The UCST / UNEM addresses NEs (UMUX) that are connected with their QX-interface to a LAN. The UCST / UNEM can also access the ECC via the QX-interface. The QX-interface offers high bit-rates (10BaseT).

    To connect to the NE, the UCST / UNEM needs to know the IP address of the QX-interface.

    Q1-interface for local clustering of the management access: The Q1-interfaces of several local NEs are connected in parallel to the 4-wires of the local Q-BUS. The Q-BUS is a serial bus and terminated to the UCST / UNEM or to the Q1-master interface of a UMUX.

    The Q1-master interface directly drives the Q-BUS while the UCST / UNEM interface uses an external conversion box, which converts the Q-BUS to the standard RS-232C interface.

    The UCST / UNEM accesses the NEs via its serial interface using HDLC addressing to select the NE on the Q-BUS, while the NE node address (IP address) is required for the connection.

    The ECC structure implements the MCN (Management Communication Network) for UMUX in the network. The ECCs are transported in PDH, SDH and ATM based networks. COBUX and COBUV controlled UMUX have in-ternal interfaces for the ECC which are not directly accessible to the UCST and UNEM. The UCST and UNEM access the ECC via a UMUX which pro-vides the gateway to the ECC MCN (Management Communication Network) of the UMUX.

    The COBUL and COBUQ control unit do not support the ECC functionality.

    For a description of the UMUX management, refer to [209].

    Print services

    The UCST / UNEM provide several print services to print out formatted lists of the UMUX configuration and specific information on the performance of its traffic. The access to the print services depends on the type of information:

    A dedicated menu provides the print service for data based on configura-tion data (including alarm condition). This service allows you to print out formatted lists or to store the informa-tion to a file (*.CSV) for further processing.

    The print services for information based on dynamic data are directly ac-cessible in the dialogues providing the corresponding information. The in-formation is typically loaded with a GET command to the NE.

    The UCST / UNEM allow you to print the following lists and data:

    Configuration based data Units (slot, unit, short description of functions) Unit parameters Subunits Alarm configuration Cross connections Timing sources

    Data based on dynamic processes Logbook Performance data Inventory data Alarm list (if NE polling is active)

    Please note that any list like information presented in UCST dia-logues can be selected (via cursor) and copied to a text processing tool using the copy/paste function of Windows. This feature can be used to print the current "NE Fault List".

    Software download 2 Scope

    The service of a unit (with respect to traffic signals and the system) is called a FUNCTION and is defined by the unit hardware and the ESW.

    Units with software download only feature bootloader software for the local microprocessor system in their on-board PROMs. All functionality specific software has to be downloaded to the local EPROM or RAM (the unit func-tion is only identified then!).

    Units with SW download allow you to implement new Functions at any time by installing new unit software (ESW) on the unit if the existing hardware is compatible with the new ESW. Since the SW download uses the data com-munication network, it is possible to remotely update Functions.

    The UMUX uses 2 basic types of software download for its units and sub-systems:

    PC card based SW download Most of the UMUX units and subsystems use this type of SW download. The SW download is fully UCST controlled and uses only resources of the UCST and UMUX. In the NE, all the ESW is intermediately stored in the PC memory card of the control unit for the subsequent distribution to the individual units and subsystems.

    FTP server based SW download The new generation of remote systems such as the MUSIC 700 use complex software systems that create huge amounts of program code (> 10 MB).

    PC card based SW download is not suited to economically provide the required resources for the SW download to these CPEs. The SW is di-rectly downloaded from the FTP server to the CPE without immediate storage in the PC memory card of the control unit.

    PC card based SW download

    The PC card based SW download is available for all the UMUX control units, the PBUS and the ABUS/PBUS units and some of the recently released UBUS units.

    The PC card based SW download consists of 2 phases each phase with its own typical process:

    The unit software (ESW) is stored in 3 software systems:

    The EM(S) holds a "master copy" of each brand of ESW which is pres-ently used or could be used in the NEs. This incarnation of the ESW is compressed code and stored as non-executable program code. Each ESW has its own file with a unique file name, which allows the iden-tification within the SW download process.

    The PCMCIA memory cards of the control units hold at least a copy of the ESW required to operate the units installed in the NE. The files on the PCMCIA card are identical to the files stored in the EM.

    The program memory of each unit (or remote unit), which holds a copy of its current ESW (as executable program code). 2 types of program memories are used with UMUX units:

    Principles

  • Software download KEYMILE AG

    EN/LZTBU 220 104/2 RC Technical Description Systems 2-3

    Non-volatile memories (Flash-Memories) The units with non-volatile program memories do not loose their ESW at power down. The configuration of the SW installation defines the appropriate ESW for the unit service.

    Volatile memories (RAMs) The units with volatile program memories lose their ESW at power down and require the re-installation of their ESW after each power up. The configuration of the SW installation guarantees this installation.

    The COBU features a flash memory for its own executable program code, which is downloaded from the PCMCIA card.

    SW download for remote units (CPEs) requires corresponding units (host unit in the UMUX subrack and remote unit) and a control unit release R4.

    With the UCST & UNEM R8 the following units support PC card based SW download for remote units

    LESI8 - MUSIC 200 SLID1/2 - MUSIC 200 New CPEs are announced and will be introduced.

    The download of ESW is handled by 2 different system processes:

    SW delivery The SW delivery is the process, which transfers the compressed unit software from the EM to the PC memory card of the COBU control unit. The software is stored as compressed program code in the PC memory card of the control unit.

    The ESW can be provided via a local management interface or via a re-mote management channel. The delivery process is directly controlled by the EM and is not part of the configuration data of the NE.

    SW installation The SW installation is the local process in the NE, which decompresses the ESW on the PC memory card and copies the code to the individual units.

    The ESW for remote units (CPEs) is decompressed and loaded into a temporary buffer of the host UMUX unit. At the time of SW installation, the ESW is loaded to the remote unit and installed in the remote unit.

    You can define the SW installation independently for the local and the remote units (providing they are compatible).

    It is possible to assign different versions of ESW to identical units (as-suming compatibility between hardware and software).

    The SW installation is a part of the NE configuration. The installation of software is successful only, if the required ESW is locally available on the PC memory card. To satisfy this requirement you have to deliver the cor-responding ESW before you configure the installation of the ESW.

    A unit without ESW does not operate. It will be signalled as a unit hardware failure! In any case, the PC memory card has to hold copies of at least one ESW for control units and the application download SW. A control unit with-out this minimum SW cannot operate or load ESW and will be seen as "unit failure". This state is indicated by a permanently active red unit LED.

    FTP server based SW download

    The FTP server based SW download uses an external FTP server and is available for CPEs with large program codes such as the MUSIC 700 family products.

    The ESW for the CPE is stored on the FTP server. The new SW is downloaded from the FTP server to the CPE via any of the following 2 ways (refer to the figure above):

    A From the FTP server via the IP network (if applicable) and the local LAN (10/100BaseT) the SW is downloaded through the Ethernet inter-face of the unit to the CPE.

    B From the FTP server via the IP network (if applicable) and a LAN in-terface of the UMUX (e.g. LAWA4) the SW is routed into the UMUX network. The SW is downloaded from the UMUX with the hosting DSL line interface unit via the DSL link to the CPE.

    With the UCST, you must route the path for the SW download from the FTP server through the UMUX network to the CPE.

    For both methods, the UCST configures the CPE for the SW download and controls the SW download. It is possible to configure the SW download for immediate application or schedule the application of the new SW for a later time.

    You need a high capacity data communication channel between your FTP server and the CPE to keep the download time reasonably short. Accord-

    CPEs Principles

  • Software download KEYMILE AG

    EN/LZTBU 220 104/2 RC Technical Description Systems 2-5

    ingly, the UMUX management communication network is not suited for FTP server based SW download.

    If you want to download the SW via the DSL link to the CPE, you must con-figure the corresponding data path from the FTP server to the CPE. Depend-ing on the complexity of your access network, this task requires some con-figuration effort and uses capacity in your access network.

    With the UCST & UNEM R8 and the release R4/5 control units the following units/CPE systems support FTP server based SW download for CPE!

    LESI8 - MUSIC 703 / 710 / 711 SLID1/2 - MUSIC 703 / 710 / 711

    Delivery and installation of the ESW is CPE specific. The description of these processes is beyond the scope of this document.

    For detailed information on the process for the delivery and installation of new ESW for CPEs, refer to the User Guide of the corresponding unit For selected units, the software download for the unit software (ESW) is not integrated into the standard management concept for UMUX ESW. This applies for traffic units with particularly bulk ESW where the download via the COBU exceeds the capacity of the local resources.

    The figure below shows the download path for ESW to the IPLM units.

    UMUX configuration 3 Principles

    The UMUX uses the UCST and UNEM for the configuration of the NE and its functionality. The UCST and UNEM use a functionally structured menu driven technique with pull-down dialogues and graphical presentations for the configuration of the UMUX system and unit parameters.

    Figure 3-1: UMUX NE configuration dialogue (sample UMUX 1500)

    For UMUX configuration, the UCST / UNEM provides separate menus for NE (refer to figure above) and unit configuration (refer to figure below. For each supported unit type (function unit) templates are available which de-scribe the parameter set of the unit and a default value (if applicable) for each parameter.

    The UCST uses these unit templates for the configuration of the individual units in the UMUX subrack. It is possible to save a fully configured unit tem-

  • UMUX configuration KEYMILE AG

    3-2 Technical Description Systems EN/LZTBU 220 104/2 RC

    plate as an application (customer) specific unit template for the fast configu-ration for this unit type.

    Figure 3-2: UMUX Unit Configuration dialogue (sample UMUX 1500)

    With the UCST / UNEM, generic principles apply for configuration which al-lows for an easy and coherent configuration of the various traffic units and interfaces. Two of these principles are that the

    Parameters are grouped on Functional Layers (tabs) for configuration (refer to sample below).

    Functional Layers for the same function are identical for all units.

  • UMUX configuration KEYMILE AG

    EN/LZTBU 220 104/2 RC Technical Description Systems 3-3

    Figure 3-3: COBUX functional layers

    For configuration, the unit parameters are adapted as required and stored in a UCST configuration file for configuration backup. The same configuration is downloaded to the NE where the control unit of the NE provides the local configuration of the units.

    Commissioning support

    To support the frequent configuration of a (function) unit type with identical or very similar parameters it is possible to save a fully configured unit template as a new type of (function) unit. To allow a fast and reliable commissioning of the UMUX for frequent applica-tions with high volumes of UMUX Access Systems, it is possible to create custom parameter sets for several of the functions of the UMUX.

    The custom parameters are integrated as sets of parameters into a corre-sponding database of the UCST / UNEM software. Each set has its unique identifier. You cannot subsequently modify individual parameters of a set. The selection of the appropriate custom parameter set from the database al-lows you e.g. to pre-set fast and reliably several hundreds of parameters that are required for the operation of the V5.x interface.

    The UCST R8 defines several parameters sets for the following functions:

    V5.x application Telephony NGN application (H.248/MEGACO and RTP protocol imple-

    mentation and traffic related parameters) SUBH, PHLC PSTN and line test functions The UCST / UNEM uses the custom parameters to properly initialise the templates of the units implied with the corresponding function. Today both functions mentioned above are integrated within one type of sets. The prin-ciple of custom parameter sets will be expanded as required with new sets, new functions and new types of sets. Profiles are introduced to simplify the procedure for configuring many sub-units (generally speaking: configuration entities) with an identical set of pa-rameters across an entire UMUX network.

    Profiles are typically used for service configuration in networks. The profiles contain all the parameters that are required to configure corresponding units for a service. A typical example for such service configuration is the ADSL profile.

    Profiles are predefined structures with a defined subset of parameters for functions of units. The UNEM / UCST can offer profile types for different con-figuration entities with given structures. The operator cannot create or mod-ify the profile structure. Only the values of the parameters the profile con-tains can be selected. Each profile type has its default profile (shaded grey in the diagram below, e.g. 1st line).

    Profiles are handled on 2 levels

    EM (UCST and UNEM) A profile can be created via the UNEM and is then stored in its database. It can be called upon when configuring any configuration entity of this type (e.g. any ADSL port) in any UMUX controlled by that UNEM.

    A profile can also be created using the UCST in a local connection to a UMUX. In that case it will be stored locally in the file system of UCST.

    NE (UMUX) Application of the profile parameters in the NE (UMUX units)

    With the UCST R8, only profiles of the type ADSL are available. The profiles are used with the ADACA and ADACB are available.

    It is panned to expand the profile concept for new parameters. New profiles will be provided with Service Packs and new UCST releases. The UCST provides an efficient means to continuously check your unit con-figuration in the UMUX subrack.

    The UCST "knows" most of the rules of unit implementation and helps you to avoid illegal configurations. The UCST also provides information on the con-verted power available and the requirements for converted power in the subrack.

    Design the configuration of units in your subrack with the UCST/UNEM (e.g. in a standalone session) before you implement the units in the subrack. This helps to avoid problems of configuration coming up during commissioning.

    The UCST/UNEM supports network wide configurations with

    Customer created configuration templates for units These configurations are saved under customer defined names and are used for the rapid configuration of units with identical parameters.

    Profiles Profiles are predefined structures with a defined subset of parameters for functions of units. The UCST/UNEM can offer profile types for different configuration entities with given structures. A typical example for such service configuration is the ADSL profile.

    Several iterations might be necessary to find the most appropriate configura-tion for given requirements.

    The UMUX NEs allow the flexible implementation of traffic interfaces. Due to this flexibility the UMUX NE is implemented following the present require-ments for traffic and transmission units rather than building up standard con-figurations.

    Control units not yet configured use 2 default IP addresses

    IP address for management access via the serial interfaces (here F-interface)

    IP address for the access via the QX-interface. A subnet mask is speci-fied for the QX-interface.

    The default IP addresses provided with the UMUX are in accordance with the rules for addresses used in closed private networks without Internet ac-cess.

    For detailed information on IP addresses and rules for the use of IP ad-dresses, refer to [902] UMUX Network Functions, chapter 5: "Addressing schemes".

    Depending on size an access network built with the UMUX Access Systems might require several hundred addresses. To ease the implementation of a management communication network it is preferable that the IP addresses are structured.

    While the theoretical maximum power dissipation in a subrack is straightfor-ward to calculate, it is not easy to estimate the mean power dissipated in a UMUX subrack. The power dissipation depends heavily on the type of units implemented and the traffic load. There are 2 ways to approach the mean power dissipation of the UMUX, via the theoretical maximum power dissipation or via summing the power dissi-pation of units under real traffic load.

    Theoretical maximum power dissipation The theoretical maximum dissipation is evaluated by summing the maxi-mum power consumption at the external power supply interface of the UMUX. It is assumed that all energy is dissipated within the subrack. This value is easy to calculate but provides a worst case value which is, depending on units and traffic, far above the real mean power dissipation. The evaluation of the mean power dissipation according to this

    method however provides reasonable results for the mean power dissipation if the UMUX operates as - Cross connect - Access System for data interfaces

    (no remote data units) Channel banks with exchange line interfaces

    (no ground keys)

    The method is not suited to estimating the mean power dissipation if a considerable part of the energy provided via the power interface of the UMUX is dissipated in equipment external to the NE. This applies for the following applications: Access System for data interfaces with remote data units

    including ISDN (remote powering)

    - applications with V5.x/NGN User Ports including ISDN (remote powering)

    - applications with SUBLA and SUBH/PHLC units (subscriber loops)

    channel banks with subscriber line interfaces In the latter cases, you can estimate the mean power dissipation as de-scribed below.

    Estimated mean power dissipation The estimated mean power dissipation is calculated in 2 steps:

    Evaluation of the theoretical maximum power dissipation for - Control units - Power supply units - Transmission units etc.

    Summing of the power dissipation of the remaining units for a speci-fied operation mode and traffic load. Values depending on traffic load and the mode of operation are pro-vided with the technical specifications in the unit technical descriptions (e.g. for the SUBH and PHLC).

    The estimated mean power dissipation in the subrack is the total sum of all units.

    Operation control and monitoring 4 General

    Performance control and monitoring is the enveloping process for all the control of system performance and monitoring of traffic performance.

    According to this definition, the UMUX provides the following functions and subsystems for performance control and monitoring:

    Alarm system The alarm system is an important function of the UMUX and is described with its alarm interfaces in a separate paragraph in this chapter.

    Test functions and diagnostics Separate paragraphs in this chapter are dedicated to the test and diag-nostic functions provided with the UMUX.

    Traffic signal performance monitoring Performance monitoring for traffic signals is a generic function for all types of traffic processed in the UMUX. A paragraph at the end of this chapter provides a short overview of this functionality.

    Alarm system and fault management

    The UMUX fault management detects equipment, function and transmission failures, or more generally, monitors the availability of the equipment and transmission paths. This includes an alarm system with various interfaces for the indication of faults and failures. These interfaces include local alarm indication and, depending on configured options, entries in the alarm list and/or the logbook.

    Please note that the following description relies on the terms fail-ure, defect, degradation, fault etc. to distinguish between the dif-ferent levels in the alarm processing.

    Each unit of the UMUX is able to detect equipment and/or traffic related de-fects and anomalies. For further processing, these defects or anomalies are transformed into fault causes. For each of the fault causes you can set a re-porting option (via the UCST / UNEM) which enable (MON) or block (NMON) the further processing of the fault causes. Only fault causes with the report-ing option set to MON will be considered for further processing. Faults with the option set to NMON will not be considered.

    Setting the reporting option to NMON is useful for interfaces without traffic and prevents the generation of useless alarms during commissioning and maintenance.

    A fault cause is declared a failure if the fault cause persists for a certain time, called the persistence time. The failure is cleared if the fault cause is absent for a certain time, called the absent time. You can set persistence time and absence time individually per fault cause. Based on detected defects (AIS, LOS and LOF), the NE can initiate other consequent actions, such as 1+1 protection switching. The UMUX is able to store time stamped information on events, failures and notifications in a log-book. The COBU control unit creates the logbook locally. It is possible to transfer the contents of the logbook and the pending alarms of the NE to the UCST / UNEM for display and inspection.

    Alarms are generated based on failures. For each fault cause one out of the three severities can be assigned:

    logbook only non urgent alarm (NA) urgent alarm (UA) An alarm or entry to the logbook is created only if the MON option is on. If the severity is set to non urgent or urgent alarm, the alarm indicator LEDs on the front panel of the control unit are activated/deactivated and the alarm relay contacts are switched over correspondingly. A yellow LED is used to indicate a non urgent alarm, and a red LED is used to indicate an urgent alarm. If the severity is set to logbook only, an entry to logbook is created but no alarm is generated.

    All unit failures and anomalies are signalled via the local fault indication LED on the front panel of the affected unit(s).

  • Operation control and monitoring KEYMILE AG

    EN/LZTBU 220 104/2 RC Technical Description Systems 4-3

    Traffic related fault causes are processed similarly. The traffic failure LED on each unit is activated for all traffic failures set to MON. The generation of alarms and logbook entries are handled the same way as unit faults.

    The actual alarm condition and the logbook can be loaded for display and inspection to the UCST / UNEM at any time. The Alarm List available with the UNEM and UCST polling (for up to 30 NEs only) shows the current alarm state for the polled NEs i.e. the access network. A dedicated LED indicator signals faults of unit hardware or failures of func-tions on each unit. This fault signalling is independent of the generation of alarms.

    Units with interfaces for traffic signals provide an second LED indicator which signals a degradation of the quality of the traffic signals connected to the unit.

    Additional alarm indicator LEDs implemented on the control unit show the pre-sent state of alarms (UA, NA) on the NE level. Simultaneously 2 changeover re-lay contacts signal the alarm state for external alarm state processing. Optical fault indications are implemented on both "system" and "unit" level. Alarms are concentrated on system level to "Urgent alarms" (UA) and "Non-urgent Alarms" (NUA). The present system alarm state is optically indicated with corresponding LEDs implemented on the COBU unit.

    Fault indications are available with all units. Standard (traffic) units feature 2 fault indicator LEDs:

    Red "Unit" LED (position 1 in figure below): All units: Indicates a hardware failure or a general non-availability of the unit (due to missing software, configuration etc.). The COBU features a multi-functional red/green LED indicator at this position. The green colour is used to indicate the active state of the software system of the COBU.

    Red "Traffic" LED (position 2 in figure below): All units but the POSUS and POSUM: Indicates failures or defects due to the subunits or traffic functions.

    The COBU control unit provides the standard LED fault indicators (1, 2) and additional indicators for alarms. It therefore features additional LEDs (positions 3 and 4 in figure above) to indicate urgent and non urgent alarms.

    Traffic units and special units can provide additional indicators to indicate specific operational states.

    Such indicators are arranged below the generic indicators on the front panel (refer to position 5 in the figure above).

    SUBH/PHLC: 1 additional LED indicator LAWA4: 2 additional LED indicators LEMU6: 2 x 4 additional LED indicators The electrical alarm indication is also part of the fault management system. The electrical interfaces are implemented as 2 solid-state "changeover relay contacts" on the COBU control unit:

    1 output indicates the NE alarm status Urgent Alarm (UA). 1 output indicates the NE alarm status Non-urgent Alarm (NA). The contacts are switched synchronously to the optical indicators for UA and NA (position 3 and 4 in figure above). The relay contacts are connected via the front panel connector of the COBU. Since alarms are initiated by a failure of a function or traffic signal, the alarms are assigned to the unit, which carries or controls the function or traffic signal.

    Entries to the alarm list are thus sorted by unit. Alarms create an entry to the alarm list and to the logbook of the NE. Alarm texts are defined when the corresponding unit is provisioned. Important system functions and some unit processes can generate notifica-tions.

    The (alarm) notification function helps you to find out the relationship be-tween NE internal events and possible failures associated with these events.

    Notifications

  • Operation control and monitoring KEYMILE AG

    EN/LZTBU 220 104/2 RC Technical Description Systems 4-5

    Notifications create an entry in the logbook of the NE. The NE fault list is a structured list of pending faults (generating alarms) sorted by units and subunits. Each fault entry contains a short fault (alarm) description. The alarm status at system level is indicated as well.

    The list of faults (alarm list) can be loaded to the UCST / UNEM for detailed inspection and printed for documentation. The logbook is an internal buffer of the COBU containing a log of inci-dents with time stamps (the term incident is used here instead of event to distinguish incidents from incidents of the event type). In addition to the time stamps, the logbook shows the information and state for each incident. The following incidents create entries in the logbook:

    State change to active failure for fault causes monitored for alarms (MON = alarms) or for entries to the logbook only (MON = logbook only).

    The state change to inactive failure for fault causes monitored for alarms (MON = alarms) or for entries to the logbook only (MON = logbook only).

    Events Entries of the type "Event" are incidents which do not create alarms, but are logged for debugging and tracing important manipulations (incidents) on the NE. An important source for Event type incidents is the software system of the NE.

    The logbook can be loaded to the UCST / UNEM for detailed inspection and printed for documentation. The Alarm List is available with the UNEM and is a new feature for UCST releases R5B which support NE polling. While the number of polled NEs is almost open for the UNEM, the UCST allows you to poll a network of up to 30 NEs and generate the collective Alarm List for these NEs.

    The Alarm List shows coloured alarms and corresponding state information to indicate the current alarm states. It is possible to acknowledge alarms in the alarm list.

    Test functions and diagnostics

    The UMUX provides diagnostics and test functions, which allow active test-ing of functional blocks, important functions, selected hardware items and traffic signals.

    Test functions and diagnostics provided are available on the

    Network level System level Functional level Unit and subunits (traffic level) Central diagnostics You can control the diagnostic and test functions with the UCST / UNEM via the menus Status/Maintenance and Diagnostics Parameters respectively, depending on the level (system, function, unit) and the type of diagnostics. For some of the functions the dialogues for the function's configuration pro-vide Diagnostic buttons to verify the configuration.

    The diagnostic and test functions do not generally belong to the configura-tion management. The corresponding settings are therefore not part of the configuration data. The functions can be controlled only when the UCST / UNEM is connected to the NE. All test settings get lost with the loss of power or a system reset. In addition to the test and diagnostic functions on the system level (refer to the paragraph below) the UNEM provides the

    Alarm List with Filters The alarm list shows coloured alarms and corresponding state informa-tion to indicate the current alarm states. Filters allow you to select alarm categories and sources.

    Synchronisation Map The synchronisation map function shows the flow of synchronisation sig-nals and helps you to identify synchronisation loops.

    Activity List and Event Log History The activity list records all management related activities of the UNEM and stores the events in the event log history file. This allows you among other to identify NEs with management communication problems.

    for diagnostics on the network level.

    The UCST polling function (UCST releases R5B) can create the NE Alarm List for small networks with up to 30 NEs. However, filters are not available with the UCST polling. On the system level, test and diagnostic functions are provided as follows:

    Alarm indicators LED indicators for urgent and non urgent alarms including associated switchover relay contacts.

    Logbook The logbook is a list with chronological time stamps and descriptive text for each alarm. The logbook contains an entry for the time the alarm comes up and the time the alarm disappears. Events and notifications create additional entries.

    Inventory management Inventory provides access to the inventory data of each unit and the re-lated information on the MIB of the NE. Inventory is particularly powerful, for trouble shooting and questions of compatibility.

    Dedicated dialogues provide the access for the UCST / UNEM to the differ-ent lists, the logbook and the inventory data. On the functional level, test and diagnostic functions are provided as follows:

    Diagnostics for PETS, SETS and ESO SDH informs you of the availability of the configured timing sources. For diag-nostic purposes, the UCST provides the dedicated status menu. The status menu allows the analysis of the timing system of the NE. Control functions allow you to force the system to synchronise to selected timing sources, overriding the automatic source selection. It is also possible to lock out a particular timing source from the selection process.

    Diagnostic function for protected cross connections informs you of your presently active signal path and the quality of the cor-responding tributary signal.

    Information on the usage of UBUS and PBUS informs you of your present use of the UBUS and PBUS. The diagnostic provides details of the connection points on the UBUS and the remaining capacity on the UBUS and PBUS.

    State indication and diagnostics for unit equipment protection System control (COBU)

    informs you of your presently active control unit and the state of the MIB of the standby unit. Switching to the inactive control unit can be forced (if unit available).

    N+1 equipment protection of traffic units informs you of the presently active traffic units and the standby unit in the equipment protection group. Switching to the standby traffic unit can be forced.

    N+1 equipment protection is only available for selected traffic units. N+1 equipment protection is only available for units without front inter-faces und homogeneous bus access.

    State indication and diagnostics for software download and installa-tion allows you to control the parameters of your NE software installation and to monitor the SW installation process for the units of the NE.

    Access to all functions is with the UCST / UNEM. Most of these functions (exceptions are diagnostics of synchronisation and cross connections, equipment protection for units) are accessed via the Status menu of the COBU control unit. On the unit and subunit (traffic signal) level test and diagnostic functions are provided as follows:

    Fault indicators of units Optical indicators for the physical localisation of unit and traffic failures.

    Test loops Most of the traffic units feature points within the traffic signal path for the application of test loops. Test loops might be set as front end (towards the traffic interface) or back end (towards the cross connect) loops. Test loops are helpful tools for the detection of equipment and/or transmission faults.

    State indication for traffic signals Read back of signalling and TS 0 Sa-bit information. If applicable the trail identifier received is displayed as well.

    Central diagnostics for traffic signal channels For details, refer to paragraphs below.

    Performance monitoring A description of performance monitoring for traffic signals is provided in the paragraphs on Redundancy and protection in the chapter 3 Func-tional Descriptions.

    Subscriber line test The PBUS units with PSTN subscriber line interfaces feature built-in test facilities to test subscriber lines (SUBH, PHLC). The test can be programmed for automatic execution.

    Most of these functions (exceptions are optical indicators) are accessed with the UCST / UNEM via Status or Diagnostic menus.

    For details, refer to the respective unit descriptions. The COBUV and COBUX control units provide versatile diagnostic functions for the analysis of the performance of data channels set up between two access points. The access points are defined as the interfaces to a test sig-nal generator and a signal analyser. Both functions (the test signal generator and analyser) are implemented on the control unit.

    For more information on this function, refer to the corresponding paragraphs in the COBUX / COBUV technical description [215].

    Performance monitoring for traffic signals

    The UMUX traffic units support depending on the units performance monitor-ing according to

    ITU-T G.821 for traffic signals n x 64 kbit/s (n = 1 31) ITU-T G.826 for traffic signals 2 Mbit/s and other traffic categories. The performance monitoring supports filtered and unfiltered PM.

    Filtered PM means that the monitored events are processed for PM accord-ing to the respective standard (mainly ITU-T G.826).

    The unfiltered PM provides the count of monitored events. The events are specific for the corresponding traffic signal interface (ATM, Ethernet etc.).

    Inventory management 5 Equipment Identification

    All equipment and parts that are relevant for system function and unit com-patibility, such as plug-in units and the subrack, carry inventory data. This is to enable a unique identification of the equipment on the hardware and func-tional level. This identification is accomplished via two subsystems:

    Product label attached to the front panel of each plug-in unit The paragraphs "System labelling" in chapter 6: "Documentation and training" describe the different UMUX equipment labels.

    Inventory data stored (electronically) on the unit Legacy UBUS units (without SW download) do not provide the complete set of inventory data. However they provide the control data and information on the unit firmware.

    Inventory

    The UMUX provides inventory management that allows the registration of hardware and software data, the control of unit functions and compatibility checks as well as customer configuration registration (CCR).

    Inventory data includes part numbers and identifiers for versions of hard-ware and software, date of manufacturing and identification of manufacturer and customer (optional).

    A write-protected serial EEPROM on the unit stores the corresponding in-ventory data. Only the PBUS, SBUS and new UBUS units (e.g. ISBU) provide this type memory for inventory data. To prevent inventory data from faults or loss, the data is stored in several copies and protected with CRC.

    The inventory data stored is split into 2 types of data

    Control data controls the function of the unit and ensures compatibility between sys-tem, hardware and software. This type of data is created during the manufacturing process.

    Inventory information contains unit name, manufacturer identification and ordering information. The customer related part of the inventory data is also referred to as "provisioning data", since the data is created during provisioning.

    The inventory data is factory-programmed during manufacturing and provi-sioning. You can read back the inventory data for information and identifica-tion of the units at any time by means of the UCST / UNEM.

    Maintenance 6 Upgrading

    The verification of the compatibility of the new hardware with the system before the upgrade is essential!

    Upgraded or new units can be plugged into the powered subrack. Units with SW download require a suitable ESW.

    The inventory data and the identification label on the front panel of upgraded hardware have to be adapted accordingly. To comply with this requirement all hardware has to be upgraded as instructed by the manufacturer. Such a procedure ensures correct CCR processing for the upgraded hardware. Cor-rect CCR (Customer Configuration Registration) is a prerequisite for rapid and efficient after sales service. The verification of the compatibility of the hardware providing protection with the system and units before the upgrade is essential!

    You can implement the protection of the power supply and the system con-trol at any time without interrupting traffic signals (payload). You must follow the rules provided for the implementation of units. For some signals (man-agement communication, timing sources, alarm signals etc.) you may need to install additional cabling, in order to provide full functional protection. The verification of the compatibility of the new ESW with the unit hardware and the UCST / UNEM version before the upgrade is essential!

    Upgrading the ESW requires management access of the UCST / UNEM to the NE with the units to upgrade. The ESW is upgraded as follows:

    The new ESW is first delivered to the NE (to the MIB of the COBU). Afterwards the installation of the new ESW has to be configured by

    means of the corresponding menus of the UCST / UNEM for all the units affected. You can program the installation for immediate application or for sched-uled installation at a defined date and time. This last feature allows the simultaneous installation (and application) of new ESW throughout the whole access network.

    The identification label on the front panel is not affected.

    The verification of the compatibility of the upgraded function with the unit hardware and the UCST /UNEM before the upgrade is essential!

    For units without SW download, you can upgrade the unit SW by changing the corresponding FW PROM. A functional upgrade for units without SW download corresponds to an upgrade of the hardware.

    The inventory data and the identification label on the front panel of function-ally upgraded units have to be adapted accordingly. To comply with this re-quirement you have to upgrade all hardware as instructed by the manufac-turer. This ensures correct CCR (Customer Configuration Registration) processing for the upgraded hardware. Correct CCR is a prerequisite for rapid and efficient after sales service. When upgrading the UCST / UNEM, the new UCST / UNEM is generally able to handle the legacy NE configuration files.

    The release notes and user guides provide corresponding upgrade proce-dures and information on limitations.

    UMUX spare units

    The UMUX system and its units feature high MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) values.

    Low MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) values are feasible because of

    of the operational parameters for the substitute unit. SW download (new units only) reconfiguring the unit SW (ESW) for

    the configured unit function independently of the former unit history.

    Functional protection of the power supply If the NE features equipment protection for the power converter units, single or multiple unit failures (depending on the degree of protection) will not affect the system operation.

    Functional protection of the control unit If the NE features equipment protection for the control units, the failure of a control unit will not affect system operation (excepted for some bit er-rors in the traffic signals connected via the UBUS and via the PBUS).

    It is essential that you dispose of spare units to re-establish or maintain the original degree of the quality of service after a failure:

    For units without functional protection (traffic, transmission units): a minimum of 1 unit of each type, or 2 4% for each type of unit in service

    For units with functional protection (power supply, control units) a minimum of 1 unit of each type, or 1 2% for each type of unit in service

    Please note that the above figures are valid considering that:

    The failed units are immediately sent to the manufacturer for repair.

    The reduced number of reserve units for power supply and con-trol units as indicated above only apply if the corresponding protection has been implemented for a large majority of the NEs.

    Manipulation of the equipment

    All units can be plugged into / removed from the powered UMUX subrack.

    If a unit is extracted, the traffic and functions affected by the respective unit are interrupted.

    Traffic and functions are not affected, if the control and/or power units with protecting units in hot standby mode are removed.

    Plugging a unit into the wrong slot position does not cause damage to the unit nor to the surrounding equipment. For the system to operate successfully take care to adhere to the rules for correct unit to slot assignment in the slot ar-rangement of the subrack. This applies in particular for the control units.

    The UMUX units contain components which are sensitive to discharges of static electricity. To avoid damages, precautions must be followed as de-scribed in [033] when handling UMUX units. The UMUX subrack is usually mounted in a 19-inch or an ETSI rack suited to miscellaneous types of equipment. The installation of the UMUX subrack into an ETSI rack requires the ETSI rack mounting kit with corresponding adapters.

    During operation, install the front cover of the subrack and ground the cables as instructed to provide the specified ESD and EMC characteristics.

    All UMUX units are plug-in units with front access for traffic and infrastruc-ture signals. They are usually plugged in and connected during installation. For upgrade and maintenance purposes, units can be plugged in and taken out while powered. Configured units will create alarms as specified by the unit configuration. Some of the UMUX units support the optical transmission of data signals with optical laser systems. Inexpert operation and handling of laser based transmission systems can provoke injuries.

    For details of safety aspects and precautions, refer to [033]. Some UMUX equipment operates from mains. Inexpert handling of equip-ment connected to the mains can provoke danger to life.

    For details of safety aspects and precautions, refer to [033]. For safety reasons and to economically achieve a high degree of quality of service with UMUX and its components, KEYMILE strongly recommends that network operators train their staff for the installation and operation of UMUX components. Only persons who have been trained and authorised by the network operator can be permitted to work with UMUX.

    The responsibility for fulfilling the above obligations lies with the network op-erators and their management staff. KEYMILE does not keep records of exter-nal staff who have been trained and authorised, and therefore accepts no re-sponsibility in case of accidents and/or low quality of service in the network.

    For details of the currently available training units, refer to the current KEYMILE technical training program.

    Technical customer training

    The UMUX is a highly complex technical system with user friendly manage-ment systems for system configuration and operation control. The UCST and UNEM support the staff with performance control and diagnostic func-tions for the UMUX equipment to implement and maintain a high level of service quality in the UMUX network.

    The complexity of the traffic functions supported by UMUX and the proper application of the UMUX functions require that staff must be trained for UMUX operation and maintenance. Although the customer documentation specifies and describes all the details of installation, operation and mainte-nance of the UMUX Multiservice platform only theoretical and practical train-ing in conjunction with the customer documentation can provide the skills required for successful and economic equipment operation.

    KEYMILE provides adequate technical training for staff with a modular train-ing program. The training program consists of courses which train

    Fundamentals of UMUX operation & maintenance UMUX management communication (MCN) commissioning and opera-

    tion

    Traffic functions and applications (courses per traffic function) such as ATM traffic functions SDH traffic functions V5.x traffic functions Access router functions

    UNEM operation and administration MCN engineering The training program is updated for each platform release and new traffic functions.

    For details of the currently available courses, refer to the current KEYMILE training program.

    System labelling

    Each system and unit with active components carries an identification label on the front. The label is an integral part of the unit and must never be re-moved.

    Depending on the functional level of the unit, the layout of the label is slightly dif-ferent. The main types (functional levels) of labels (used with the UMUX) are

    Unit hardware for units with SW download

    Unit function for units without SW units with FW

    Subrack and CE brand Detailed information on labels and their contents is provided in the following paragraphs. The label specifies hardware only. To create a FUNCTION, requires a unit hardware and an ESW (Embedded SW).

    This type of label is typical for units with SW download. The label identifies the unit and provides detailed information on the build and change status of the unit.

    Please note that:

    It is essential to replace or updated the identification label if the hardware is modified.

    Due to the hardware designation of such units, you cannot read the name of the UCST template (*.cdu, *.ocu, *.cox etc.) from the label.

    The label specifies the function. For most units the function is defined by the unit hardware and the unit firmware, which is then a part of the hardware.

    This type of label is typical for legacy UMUX units without SW download or for units without SW at all (such as power supplies).

    The label identifies the unit and provides detailed information on the build and change status of the unit.
