Remote equipment list (info)

Each equipment has a remote equipment list stored in its own controller.

With remote equipment list we mean a list containing all the network remote equipment which you wish
to connect to.

For a better vision of the equipment during the setting of the list, it is possible to subdivide the equipment
into stations, in such a way that, at the selection of a station, the application will display only the detail of
the equipment associated with such a specific station. The station does not have any particular meaning;
it has been simply introduced to help the user during the localization of the equipment.

Into each remote equipment list, it is possible to create a maximum of 100 equipment and 30 station.

The remote equipment list can be used to connect, at the same time, to more equipment only if the pro-
gram WEB LCT is available.

When the user requests the connection to a generic equipment present into the network (local equipment),
at the connection of such equipment, the WEB LCT program reads its remote equipment list and automat-
ically forwards the connection command to all pieces of equipment present into the list.

In such a way, the application displays, into the Station List area of the WEB LCT window, all the stations
that group the equipment and, into the Equipment List area (selecting the relevant station), it displays the
functional status of the local equipment (that results in connected/login status) and the functional status
of all the remote equipment present into the list. The equipment that have answered to the connection
request of the application will result in connected/monitor status.

The application will cyclically forward the connection command, to the equipment that have not answered
to the connection request, until to:
It is deactivated the connection with the local equipment.
The user disables the equipment.
The equipment is deleted from the remote equipment list of the local equipment.

More information concerning the WEB LCT program are reported into the relevant manuals.

(3) List of the PM measures. The measures are subdivided in groups.


Selecting a group, the list of the measures associated to the group can be expanded.
Selecting one measure, the options pointing out the measurement units of the parameters associ-
ated to the measure are displayed. This subdivision is necessary because it is not possible to graph-
ically represent the results of the control parameters by means of different measurement units.
Selecting one measurement unit in the right part of the window (see note 4), the result of the con-
trol parameters and the threshold exceeding alarms are displayed. If the measure has never been
activated, the graph and the table will be empty.

The symbol:
identifies an expanded group or measure.
identifies a compressed group or measure.
identifies a measuring unit.

To every measure, the status is displayed:


(Stop.). The measure is not on progress.
(Run.). The measure is on progress.

The group and the relevant measures (group > measure) available are the following:
G828 > ODU <radio branch>, checks the quality of the received signal at radio side.
The results of the control parameters are shown subdivided into the following measuring units:
seconds. Seconds: ES, SES, SEP, UAS.
blocks. Blocks: BBE.
RxPwr > ODU <radio branch>, checks the power of the signal at reception.
The results of the control parameters are shown subdivided into the following measuring units:
Rlts. Seconds: Rlts1, Rlts2, Rlts3, Rlts4, Rlts5.
TM. dBm: TMMax, TMMin, Average Lev.
TxPwr > ODU <radio branch>, checks the power of the signal at transmission.
The results of the control parameters are shown subdivided into the following measuring units:
Tlts. Seconds: Tlts1, Tlts2, Tlts3, Tlts4.
TM. dBm: TMMax, TMMin, Average Lev.
ACM > <Radio Link name>, traces the trend of the ACM profiles in the time.
The results of the control parameters are shown subdivided into the following counters:

Press to hide the list of measures. Press to display the list again.

(4) Graphical representation of the measure results. This area displays, in graphical format, the
results of the control parameters of the selected measure/measurement unit.
Every bar represents the result of the measure of one parameter in a given observation period (daily
or primary record).
The position of the bar on the x-axis indicates the daily or primary record which it is referred to:
C.D. Current daily record (24 hours). The X100 suffix indicates that the value must be mul-
tiplied by 100 to obtain the real measured value.
L. D. Preceding daily record. The displayed value must be multiplied by 100 to obtain the
real measured value.
Curr. 15 Min. Current primary record (15 minutes).
15 Min. 4 Hours. 16 preceding primary records (each record is of 15 minutes).

Moreover, for every record the relevant status is displayed: (ML), (MF), (IN), (LO), (RE). The de-
scription of every single status is reported in the following note. If the status indication is not pre-
sent, the record is not available, because the measure was not active during the considered
observation period.

WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002 51


The colour of the bar indicates the control parameter that corresponds to the value. The key of the
parameters and their colours is always pointed out above the graph. The displayed control param-
eters changes according to the selected measure/measuring unit (see note 3).

The position on the y-axis indicates the value achieved by the parameter during the specific obser-
vation period (record). The measurement unit on the y-axis changes depending on the type of pa-
rameter represented in the graph. Moreover the y-scale dynamically changes depending on the
entity of the represented values.
The results relevant to a given parameter can be hidden selecting the parameter label located in
the top part of the area (for example ). To display the parameter results again, select the
label again.

(5) Table representation of the measure results. This area displays, in table format, the results of
the control parameters of the selected measure/measurement unit.
For every parameter, the result of the measure is pointed out relevant to a given observation period
(daily or primary record):
Type. According to the selected measure this field indicates:
G828, RxPwr and TxPwr measures: Control parameters (see PM measures availa-
ble).
ACM measure: Counters. One counter is foreseen for every ACM profile (see PM
measures available).
For every counter, the column of the specific observation period indicates (expressed
in seconds) the number of times the counter is increased. Besides one counter per
modulation, the following counters are foreseen:
Unavailable. Number of seconds, within the specific observation period, for
which the count has not been possible because the current ACM profile was
not connected to the radio.
DownShift. Number of times the profile, during the specific observation period,
has changed assuming a profile lower than the previous one.
UpShift. Number of times the profile, during the specific observation period,
has changed assuming a profile higher than the previous one.
Into the table, the system does not point out the results relevant to all the counters. Such
results have been subdivided according to the selected measure/measuring unit (see note
3).
Curr. Day. Current daily record (24 hours).
Last Day. Preceding daily record.
Curr. 15 Min. Current primary record (15 minutes).
15 Min. 4 Hours. 16 preceding primary records (each record is of 15 minutes).

What just said is valid from the second row of the table on, because the first row indicates the status
of the records (Count. Status):
Meaningless (ML) (green). The record has been completely acquired and the measure is not
affected by errors.
Meaningful (MF) (green). The record has been completely acquired and it detected some per-
formance errors.
If one or more alarms are active (see note 6) means that the counter(s) have exceeded their
threshold value.
Incomplete (IN) (yellow). The record has not been completely acquired during the corre-
sponding observation period.
The measure starting record is always in this status. The daily record gets this status also
when only one primary record of the corresponding day is in incomplete status.
The daily record of the current date will be always an incomplete one because the daily re-
cords are acquired at 23.59 of each day.
Lost (LO) (red). The record has not reached the main controller of the equipment for instance
because the corresponding peripheral card has been physically extracted before it could have
forwarded the record itself or for generic hardware/software troubles.
Restarted (RE) (red). The record has been lost after a reset of the equipment.
When the equipment has a software restart and checks that the measure is activated for a
certain measure point, all the record coupled with such a measure point will result in this
status.

PM measures (info)

A PM measure consists of recording, during a pre-defined time range (observation period), the values of
specific parameters.
Some threshold limits have been assigned to such control parameters (the setting of the thresholds can
be changed).
The exceeding of the threshold limit indicates a more or less serious degradation of the signal. This condi-
tion generates an alarm.
The alarms relevant to the threshold exceeding are treated by the equipment and by the application as
normal alarms. The only exception is that the alarm is not automatically reset at the return into the thresh-
old limit but the user has to execute the reset of this kind of alarms.
The control parameters under examination change according to the equipment type and to the measure
type supported by that type of equipment. Usually, all the executed measures refer to ITU-T Recommen-
dations (eg. G.828, etc.).

The activation (and the deactivation) of the PM measures can be executed by the user.
When it has been activated a PM measure, the equipment starts the storing of the values relevant to the
control parameters.
The results of the measures are sub-divided into records. Each record contains the values recorded into a
specific time range (observation period).
If at the end of the observation period, the measure has not yet been deactivated the system starts another
observation period and so on until when the operator stops the measure.
The equipment group the results of the PM measures into observation period of 15 minutes (primary re-
cords) and of 24 hours (daily records).

The observation periods can not be synchronized with the instant when the measure is activated but such
records refer, for the primary records, to the quarter of an hour (00.00, 00.15, 00.30, etc.) and, for the
daily records, to the time 00.00 UTC (Universal Time, Coordinated).
For instance, if a measure starts at 11.40, the first primary record will have as observation period the time
11.4011.45 (corresponding to the time range 11.3011.45), while the first daily record will have as ob-
servation period 11.4000.00.

When the user requires the display of the results of the PM measures, the daily and primary records rele-
vant to the running PM measures are displayed in the WEB LCT page of the equipment.

For each type of measure, the equipment keeps stored the current records and also the last 16 primary
records (corresponding to the last 4 hours) and the last daily one (corresponding to the preceding day).
The preceding records are overwritten.
When the operator stops a measure, the system stores the uncompleted current record.

If the operator activates and deactivates the measure more times during the same observation period, the
system will store the record that contains the results of the last executed measure.
For instance if the measure has been activated at 9.02 and deactivated at 9.07, then it has been newly
activated at 9.09, the record relevant to the observation period 9.009.15 will contain the results of the
measures relevant to the period 9.099.15, while the ones relevant to the period 9.029.07 will not be
stored.

If equipment has some PM measures on progress and it is re-started up or turned off, when it will succes-
sively restarted or turned on the measures activated before the turning off will be automatically re-started.
The records (primary and daily), relevant to the period when measure has been stopped, will result empty
and when it has been reached the limit of 16 primary records and 1 daily one, they will overwrite the pre-
ceding records.

Wake Up functionality (info)

The Wake Up functionality allows the user enabling the spontaneous forward, from the equipment to a re-
mote server, of a SNMP trap for the notification of the equipment commissioning (Wake Up trap).

Auto Discovery
This functionality has been implemented as help to the Auto Discovery modality available in the
supervision systems NMS5UX-B and NMS5LX.
The Auto Discovery mode has the purpose to point out new equipment in the network, not man-
aged by the supervision system yet. More information about the Auto Discovery modality is re-
ported in the relevant documentation.
This chapter shows only the management of the Wake Up trap by the equipment. The imple-
mentation of the Wake Up functionality is the following.

WEB LCT
Via WEB LCT application, it is possible:
Define the IP address of the server where the supervision system, which the trap must
be sent to (NMS IP Address option) is installed.
Define the time interval for which the trap must be sent, after which the sending of the
trap is automatically disabled (Timeout option).
If the value 0 is set for the Timeout option, the Wake Up trap will be sent until when the
user manually disables it or the NMS server automatically disables it when intercepts it.
Activate and deactivate the sending of the trap.
To activate the Wake Up functionality, it is necessary to set a valid value (different from
0.0.0.0) as IP address of the server (NMS IP Address option) and select the Enable op-
tion.
To deactivate the functionality, it is necessary to select the Disable option or reset the
NMS IP Address option (value 0.0.0.0).

When the Wake Up functionality is activated, the equipment starts sending the Wake Up trap
every minute for the time interval defined by the user (Timeout option). For example, if the val-
ue 60 has been set as timeout, the trap is sent each 60 minutes. At the end of 60 minutes, the
sending of the trap is automatically disabled.
If, in the period when the sending of the trap is enabled, the supervision system intercepts the
Wake Up notification records the presence of the new equipment in its database and disables
the sending of the Wake Up trap by the equipment (trap switch-off).

3. In the box Download file path, type the path/name of the file you wish to use for update.

66 WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002


The file must be on the local PC (PC where the browser used for the display of WEB LCT is running).
If the equipment uses the:
FTP protocol and the FTP Server activated at start-up of WLC, it is necessary to enter the full
path (c:\..). Otherwise, if you use own FTP Server, it is necessary to enter the partial path (only
the sub-folder and the filename of the Shared Folder).
SFTP protocol you must set the path defined during the configuration of the SSH server (see
Installation and configuration of SSH server - SFTP tab).

4. Set, in the FTP Server IP Addr. box, the IP address of the FTP Server or the SSH Server (if not differently
set at the configuration of FTP Server, it corresponds to IP address of PC).

5. Set the download type to be executed, selecting the option:


Forced, if you are updating the software/firmware of main controller of the equipment.
Only difference or not present / peripheral, if you are updating the software/firmware of periph-
eral units (FPGA file and/or application code).

6. Activate the Bench Switch? box, if at the end of the download, the system has automatically to execute
a switching of the memory bench in such a way to use the bench with the software/firmware that has
been updated.

7. Press Start and confirm.


Before executing the updating, the system executes a compatibility check between the file to be for-
warded to the equipment and the one present on the terminal.
The check consists of comparing the technology type of the equipment.
If the parameters are incompatible, the application does not executes the update: the wording Inter-
rupted is displayed in the Download Status box of the bench whose software/firmware you are updat-
ing.
If the parameters are compatible, the operation is started and the Download Status box of the bench
whose software/firmware you are updating dynamically updates the progress of the operation, which
requires some minutes:
Downloading. The operation is running.
The Abort push-button, present in the Download Status box during the software/firmware up-
date, can be used to stop the operation. Its selection requires the confirmation.
During the updating, the system deletes the software/firmware present into the bench memory
and it updates the software/firmware of the equipment one component at a time.
If the operation is stopped, into the memory bench there will be only the already updated com-
ponents. In this case, the new version can result unusable because it is not an integral one (the
bench will be in Not Loaded status).
In this case, the controller keeps the minimum functions necessary to allow a new updating of
the software/firmware.
Complete. The update operation is ended.
The Software Version box shows the new software/firmware version.

Factory Default of the equipment (info)

Through the WEB LCT application, the Factory Default settings of equipment can be restored (see Restore
Factory Default of the equipment).
At the restart or at the new switch-on of the equipment, the Factory Default configuration will be applied.
All the settings executed until then by the user will be deleted (for example, user list, remote equipment
list, etc.).
In order to login to the equipment, the default user must be used. Username: admin - Password: admin.
The communication ports of the equipment will be restored to the addresses pointed out in Tab.2.
These addresses differ depending on the type (High or Low) of ODU. The equipment keeps always in mem-
ory the type (High or Low) of the last connected ODU. If no ODU has never been connected to the IDU,
the addresses of ODU Low must be used. If an ODU of High type is connected to equipment configured
with ODU of Low type (and vice versa), the equipment automatically changes its own default addresses.

Backup/restore of the equipment configuration (info)

Backup
The WEB LCT program allows save the whole equipment configuration (backup configuration).
The saved file is in binary format and can be saved on PC or external support according to the
user needs.

Restore
In any moment, the user can restore the equipment configuration saved to file transferring the
data of the file to the same equipment (configuration restore).
Before restoring the configuration, the equipment saves its own current configuration and keeps
it available until the successive restore operation.

Revert
In any moment, the user can retrieve the equipment configuration automatically saved by the
program before the last operation of configuration restore (revert configuration).
In this way, two backup versions will be always available for equipment: one executed by the
user and the other automatically executed by the program before the last restore operation.

Alarms management (info)

The term alarm defines the fault signal generated by an error or malfunction of the equipment or of any
component that composes it.
The signals referring to any event that does not indicates a malfunction but a status change, an operation
in progress or an operating indication are defined status signals.
The term event defines every signal of status, detected alarm and cleared alarm.
A maximum of 500 events are recorded in the equipment controller. When this limit is exceeded, each new
event will overwrite the oldest event.

Displaying alarms
The list of the current alarms is indicates in the Equipment status area.

Enabling/disabling alarms
The equipment alarms can be disabled and re-enabled by the user according to the needs.
Disabling an alarm means that, on the detection of the alarm itself, this is not registered in the
equipment controller and, as consequence, is not communicated to a possible management pro-
gram: as the alarm had never occurred.
On the contrary, enabling an alarm (default condition) means that, when the alarm is detected,
this is registered in the equipment controller and, if the forwarding of the relevant trap is ena-
bled (see next item), the alarm is communicated to the management system and displayed in
the current alarms and the history alarms.
WARNING The enabling/disabling of the alarm is independent for each alarm and local to the
equipment which the operation is executed for. This means that the setting must be executed
for each alarm of each equipment.

Enabling/disabling traps
The trap is a message (in this case of detection or clearing of an alarm) spontaneously sent by
the equipment to a possible external management system, for example NMS5UX-B/NMS5LX.

The forwarding of the trap of each alarm can be disabled and re-enabled by the user according
to his own needs.

Disabling a trap means that, on the detection of the alarm, this is not registered in the equip-
ment controller and, as consequence, is not communicated to a possible management program.

On the contrary, enabling a trap (default condition) means that, on the detection of the alarm,
this is registered in the equipment controller and communicated to the management system,
which displays it in the current alarms and the history alarms.

WARNING The enabling/disabling of the forwarding of the trap is independent for each alarm
and local to the equipment which the operation is executed for. This means that the setting must
be executed for each alarm of each equipment.

Alarm severity
Each alarm acknowledged and managed by the local management program has an associated
severity which determinates the importance of the alarm.
This severity is not fixed, but can be changed by the user as he likes.

Alarms log
With log of the equipment alarms we mean the list of the status and alarm signals currently ac-
tive on the equipment (current alarms) and the signals memorized in the equipment controller
(alarm history).
WEB LCT allows to Save the log of the equipment alarms and to Delete the log of the equipment
alarms.

HTTP/HTTPS protocol (info)

HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) is used to transfer hypertext pages within WEB.
All HTTP traffic takes place via the TCP/IP protocol on port 80 of PC.

HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol over SSL) is a variation of HTTP and uses, besides TCP/IP protocol,
SSL layer (Secure Sockets Layer) which implements the encryption and the authentication of the transmit-
ted data. All HTTPS traffic takes place on port 443 of PC.
In web browsers, URI which refers to this technology is named https.
For more information about RFC 2818 specification (HTTP Over TLS).

AGS-20
Equipment can operate with HTTP protocol or HTTPS protocol.
Protocols are implemented in exclusive mode in such a way that, when a user connects via HTT-
PS, HTTP requests will be re-addressed to HTTPS and vice versa.

The use of the protocol HTTP and/or HTTPS at equipment level can be enabled in any moment
(see Enable/disable the operating of a communication protocol).
If the operator enables both the HTTP protocol and the HTTPS protocol, the system will auto-
matically use the more secure protocol (HTTPS).

The utilization of a protocol during a WEB LCT session depends even on the enabling state of the
user, who has opened the session, in relation to the use of this protocol. The protocols enabled
for one user depend on the group associated to the user (see Group/User Management).
Example. If the user XY is associated to a group not enabled to the use of HTTPS protocol but
only HTTP, this user can open the WEB LCT session only in HTTP mode even if the HTTPS pro-
tocol is enabled in the Services Status Config contextual area. In the same way, if the user XY
is associated to a group enabled to the use of HTTPS and HTTP protocol, but the HTTPS protocol
is disabled in the Services Status Config contextual area, the user XY can open the WEB LCT
session in HTTP mode.
As general rule, for the correct use of one protocol, it is necessary that the protocol is enabled
to the use and that the user who opens the WEB LCT session is associated to a group enabled
to the use of the same protocol.

First time equipment is switched-on or after the restore of the Factory Default, equipment uses
HTTP protocol.
The protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) used to open the WEB CT page is defined at level of NMS system.

HTTPS (AGS-20) - SSL certificate


Enabling HTTPS protocol is possible only if you have a digital certificate SSL for WEB Server.
Main aim of this certificate is to authenticate the server (for example, AGS-20 equipment) at the
customers (e.g., user PC where the WEB LCT page relevant to equipment is opened).
SSL foresees that, on connection, the server provides its certificate; if the certificate is signed
by a recognised certification Authority (Trusted certificates), then a secure communication can
be started.
From the physical point of view, the certificate is a file containing the information relevant to the
issuing authority, to the subject of certificate and additional information indicating the use which
the certificate has been released for.

WARNING AGS-20 equipment is not provided with SSL certificates when it is put in field. More-
over, the restore of Factory Default deletes possible certificates already loaded on equipment.

How to get a SSL Trusted certificate


You can get a SSL certificate requiring it to a recognised certification authority (Certification Au-
thority - CA), that is a public authority enable to the univocal emission of certificates.
The Certification Authority ensures the identity of the owner of the certificate signing the public
and private keys by its own private key.

The procedure to request the certificate can change from CA to CA depending on the required
information and on the procedure for the generation and the communication of the pair of key
(see documentation of specific CA).

88 WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002


Generally, all CAs will require to provide a CSR (Certificate Signing Request), that is a request
containing the data which shall be certificated. To generate the CSR of an equipment see Gen-
erate the Certificate Signing Request for an equipment.
The generation of CSR includes also the generation of a Private Key, which will not be included
in CSR itself will be used only to sign the request of certificate.
The information to include in CSR changes depending on the context for which you request the
certification. CA will define which information is useful.
In any case the name/address of server (Common Name), which you require the certificate for,
will be required.
For the generation of SSL certificates relevant to AGS-20 equipment, the Common Name of the
certificate must correspond to the IP address of the equipment for which you wish to use the
certificate (for more information, see Certificate license - AGS-20 hereinafter in the chapter).
With IP address we mean the address entered in the URL of the browser to open the page WEB
LCT.

As result of the certification request, CA will provide the file relevant to final SSL certificate. This
file must be loaded on the equipment (see Download the SSL certificate in an equipment).

SSL UnTrusted certificates - AGS-20


It is possible to create, and load on the equipment, certificates self-generated by the user (e.g.
via OpenSSL).
The self-signed certificates (UnTrusted certificates) are not generally considered trustworthy by
browsers. They are useful for verification purpose, but the standard use of them does not ensure
the security of server-client connection.
To ensure the security within an equipment network, it is necessary to use certificates signed
by a certification authority (Trusted certificates).

Certificate license - AGS-20


The certificate license is valid for only one piece of equipment, because SSL certificates are spe-
cific with respect to the Common Name for which they are required and released.
During the authentication of a server (equipment) at a client (user PC), one of the first executed
check consists in comparing the value of the field Common Name present in the certificate with
the URL of the web page you are opening.
The equipment WEB LCT page is opened at URL //<equipment IP address>. This involves that
the Common Name of the certificate must correspond to the equipment IP address.
So, if you wish to migrate a whole network of AGS-20 equipment from HTTP protocol to HTTPS
protocol, it is necessary to have a SSL certificate for every equipment where the relevant Com-
mon Name corresponds to the equipment IP address.

Certificate expiry - AGS-20


Generally, SSL certificates have a quite long expiry.
When the certificates on the equipment expiry, they must be replaced with new valid certificates
by means of the procedures Generate the Certificate Signing Request for an equipment and
Download the SSL certificate in an equipment.

How to implement the protocol HTTPS - AGS-20


In summary, the operations to perform in order to implement the use of the protocol HTTPS on
AGS-20 equipment are the following:
Open the WEB LCT page of the equipment for which you wish to generate the request
of the certificate (CSR).
Generate the Certificate Signing Request for an equipment.
During this operation, set the IP address of the equipment indicated in the URL of the
WEB page to Common Name.
The system, besides generating the CSR, will send the private RSA key to the equip-
ment.
Copy the CSR and paste it to a text file.
Send the CST to the chosen CA.
When CA will send the file containing the SSL certificate signed, load it to the equip-
ment (see Download the SSL certificate in an equipment).

WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002 89


Verify that the group, which the user used to open the HTTPS session with the equip-
ment is associated to, is enabled. Otherwise, it is necessary to enabled him (see
Groups contextual area/Users contextual area).
Verify that the protocol HTTPS at equipment level is enabled, otherwise it is necessary
to enable it (see Services Status Config contextual area).

SSL and TLS protocol


The protocols SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) are encryption pro-
tocols which allow a secure communication in TCP/IP networks.
As indicated at the beginning of the chapter, the protocol HTTPS is a variation of HTTP which
uses the SSL level for the encryption and the authentication of the transmitted data.
In order to do this, the protocols SSL/TLS use three main functionalities:
Authentication. The authentication of the identity in the connections can be executed
using the encryption with public key (e.g., RSA, DSS etc.).
Security. In order to ensure a secure connection between two users involved in a
communication, the data are protected using encryption algorithms with symmetric
key (e.g., DES, RC4, etc.).
Reliability. The transport level includes a check on the integrity of the message based
on a proper MAC (Message Authentication Code) which uses secure hash functions
(e.g., SHA, MD5 etc.). In this way, you can verify that the data transmitted between
client and server have not been altered during the transmission.

SSL and TLS protocol - AGS-20


AGS-20 equipment uses the protocol TLS version 1.
The user can choose, from the list of CipherSuite, the combination of encryption algorithms sup-
ported by the client, sorted according his preferences.
In detail, the list of CipherSuite indicates:
The algorithm for the Key Exchange.
The CipherSpec containing the data encryption algorithm (Cipher) with the possible
implementation characteristics and the algorithm for the Message Authentication
Code (Hash).
AGS-20 equipment manages the following CipherSuite.

CipherSuite Key Exchange Cipher Hash


RSA-3DES-SHA RSA 3DES SHA
RSA-WITH-AES-128-CBC-SHA RSA AES-128-CBC SHA
RSA-WITH-AES-256-CBC-SHA RSA AES-256-CBC SHA

SNMP protocol (info)

The SNMP protocol is available in 3 versions: SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3.


The main differences between SNMPv1/v2c and SNMPv3 are the management of message security and the
control of the accesses.

SNMPv1/v2c
The versions 1 and 2 of SNMP have the security model based on the community: messages are
passed not-encrypted and can be copied or modified.

SNMPv3
The version 3 of SNMP, instead, foresees a security model based on the user for the protection
of the messages and the control of the access.
In SMNMPv3, every user has his own authentication password and encryption password for the
packets.
In order to authenticate the packets, SNMPv3 utilizes the HMAC-MD5 or HMAC-SHA1 algorithm.
The secret key used to calculate the HMAC code is the user password; in order to be authenti-
cated, the packet must contain even the user name besides the HMAC code.
Moreover, the SNMPv3 protocol foresees the possibility to cipher the part of the packet contain-
ing the OID of the MIB objects and the relevant values using the cipher algorithm DES56; the
key used for the cipher procedure is different from the key used for HMAC authentication.
This allows defining if allowing the user an access:
Without authentication (noAuthNoPriv).
With authentication (AuthNoPriv).
With authentication and encryption (AuthPriv).
For more information, refer to RFC 3410, 3411, 3412, 3413, 3414, 3415, 3584 specifications.

AGS-20
The equipment can work with SNMPv1/v2c protocol and with SNMPv3 protocol.
In order to preserve the security, SNMPv3 protocol must be used.

The use of the protocol SNMPv1/v2c and/or SNMPv3 can be enabled at equipment level in any
moment (see Enable/disable the operating of a communication protocol).
The use of a protocol during a WEB LCT session, however, depends on the enabling state of the
use of this protocol by the user who has opened the session. The protocols enabled for a user
depend on the group associated to the user (see Backup/Restore Config.).
Example. If the user XY is associated to a group enabled to the use of the protocol SNMPv3, a
WEB LCT session opened by the user XY will accept and process only SNMPv3 packets; the re-
ceived SNMPv1/v2c packets will be dropped.
In analogous way, if the user YZ is associated to a group enabled to the use of the protocol
SNMPv2c, a WEB LCT session opened by the user YZ will accept and process only SNMPv1/v2c
packets.
As general rule, for the correct use of one protocol, it is necessary that the protocol is enabled
to the use and that the user who opens the WEB LCT session is associated to a group enabled
to the use of the same protocol.

First time equipment is switched-on or after the restore of the Factory Default, equipment uses
SNMPv1/v2c protocol.

Tab.3 displays, for every SNMP version, the security levels (noAuthNoPriv, AuthNoPriv, Auth-
Priv) supported by the equipment and the description of the provided security mechanisms.

FTP/SFTP protocol (info)

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) are two protocols for the file transfer
based on TCP.
Main difference between FTP and SFTP is the management of security.
The FTP protocol does not foresee the data encryption, while the SFTP protocol is based on SSH protocol
for the data encryption and the secure file transfer.

AGS-20
The equipment can be used for the file transfer (download/upload) the FTP protocol or the SFTP
protocol.
The use of the protocol FTP and/or SFTP can be enabled in any moment (see Enable/disable the
FTP and/or SFTP protocol).
If the operator enables the protocols FTP and SFTP at the same time, the system will automat-
ically use the most secure protocols (SFTP).

The utilization of a protocol during a WEB LCT session depends even on the enabling state of the
user, who has opened the session, in relation to the use of this protocol. The protocols enabled
for one user depend on the group associated to the user (see Group/User Management).
Example. If the user XY is associated to a group not enabled to the use of the protocol SFTP,
even if the protocol SFTP is enabled in the Ftp/Sftp contextual area, the file transfer between PC
and equipment during a WEB LCT session opened by XY will take place via FTP. In the same way,
if the user XY is associated to a group not enabled to the use of the protocol SFTP, but the pro-
tocol SFTP is not enabled in the context area Ftp/Sftp, the file transfer between PC and equip-
ment during a WEB LCT session opened by XY will take place via FTP.
As general rule, for the correct use of one protocol, it is necessary that the protocol is enabled
to the use and that the user who opens the WEB LCT session is associated to a group enabled
to the use of the same protocol.
When the equipment is switched-on for the first time after the restore of the Factory Default
setting or after the recovery of the whole equipment configuration from file (see Backup/Restore
Config.), the equipment uses the FTP protocol.
The management of the protocol for the file transfer (FTP or SFTP) between NMS and equipment
is defined at NMS level and, for the current system version, is always FTP.

FTP protocol- AGS-20


The default FTP credentials of the equipment are: user Anonymous, no password.
The FTP credentials can be changed at ones wish (see Modify the FTP access credentials).
The change of FTP credentials is valid only for the current WEB LCT session. When the WEB LCT
page will be re-opened, the default credentials will be used.

The program SCT/LMT or WEB Lct Console must be used as help for the WEB LCT application,
in order to manage the FTP protocol.
The instructions for the installation and use of the SCT/LMT and Web Lct Console are reported
in the relevant manuals.

To manage the FTP protocol, as tool auxiliary to WEB LCT application, it is necessary to install
and run one of the following programs:
Web Lct Console version 1.2.0 or later.
When the program is started, the FTP server provided with the program itself is automat-
ically started.
The server does not perform any check on the credentials.
For the download operations, it is sufficient to enter the complete path where the file re-
sides.
At start-up of WLC, if a FTP Server is already active, the FTP server available with the
program is not started. This condition is signalled by a message.
Standard FTP Server (e.g., free FTP Server FileZilla).
If you use your own FTP Server, it must be installed and configured if not already present
on the PC.
The configuration consists in defining the users and the path (Shared Folder) used later
for the file transfer.

WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002 93


USERS. For a correct management of the data transfer, the credential used to access to
WEB LCT page must be the same configured for the FTP Server.
For this reason, it is suggested to configure, for the FTP Server, the users present in the
equipment user list with whom the download/upload operations are executed.
PATH. Define the path of Shared Folder for the file transfer.
The path will be used to save the files in the upload operations and shall be the path
(even partial) where are present the files for the download operations.
It is suggested not to save the files in C:\, but to create a sub-folder and set it for the
file saving (e.g. C:\ftp or C:\backup). This allows saving the backup files without being
Administrator users (some Windows versions require to be Administrator user to save the
file in C:\).

SFTP protocol - AGS-20


The default SFTP credentials are the same used by the user to access to the WEB LCT page.
The SFTP credentials can be changed at ones wish (see Modify the SFTP access credentials.
For a correct management of the data transfer, the SFTP credentials shall correspond to the user
(or to one of the users) defined during the installation of the SSH server.
The change of credentials is valid only for the current WEB LCT session. When the WEB LCT page
will be re-opened, the default credentials will be used.

As help for the WEB LCT application in order to manage the protocol SFTP, it is necessary to
install and configure a SSH server (see Installation and configuration of SSH server).

SSH protocol (info)

SSH (Secure SHell) protocol allows implementing secure connections between two system, using a client/
server architecture.
SSH protocol is available in two versions: version 1 (SSH1) and version 2 (SSH2).
Documents defining the protocol can be found at http://www.ietf.org.

AGS-20
The equipment can operate with protocol SSH1 and/or SSH2.
Besides the selection of the protocol version, it is possible to define the authentication and en-
cryption algorithms managed by the equipment. These configurations can be executed by CLI
(application SM-OS): refer to CLI for more information.
By means of WEB LCT, the use of the protocol SSH can be enabled/disabled (see Enable/disable
the operating of a communication protocol).
For the correct use of the protocol SSH, it is necessary that the user, who opens the WEB LCT
session, is associated to a group enabled to the use of the protocol itself (see Group/User Man-
agement).

When the equipment is switched-on for the first time after the restore of the Factory Default
setting or after the recovery of the whole equipment configuration from file (see Backup/Restore
Config.), the SSH protocol is disabled (SSH2 version).

Users management (info)

Users list
The user list is a list of the users who can connect and require to login to the equipment by the
WEB LCT application (WEB user) or the NMS5UX-B/NMS5LX program (SNMP user).
If an user is not present in the list stored in the equipment controller, that user cannot connect
and/or login to the that equipment.

Users are subdivided into groups (for details, see successive paragraphs).
Before creating an user, it is necessary to create the group which the user must be associated
to. One group can contain more users, but one specific user can belong to only one group.
A maximum of 10 groups and 10 users can be created in the equipment user list.

At the first connection with the equipment or after a Factory Default operation, a default group
and a default user are available. Then, through WEB LCT application, new users and groups can
be created, modified and deleted.
The management of the user list can be performed even by NMS5UX-B/NMS5LX system.

Groups
The users belonging to the list are organized in groups for which it is possible to define a profile
and the enabling to the use of HTTP, HTTPS, SNMP, FTP, SFTP e SSH protocols.
The profile and the authorization of a group will be automatically assigned to the user who is
associated to that group.
The characteristics of a group are:
Name of the group. The name of the group must be unique within an user list.
The name of the group, once assigned, cannot be changed.
Profile which will be automatically assigned to the users associated to the group:
Administrator. The user with this profile can both verify the parameters and send
commands or change the equipment configuration with no exception.
Moreover, every user belonging to a group with profile Administrator, besides be-
ing a WEB user, is even a CLI user because a user with profile Administrator is
automatically enabled by the system to access to the equipment even by the ap-
plication SM-OS (Siae Microelettronica - Operating System).
Read/Write. The user with this profile can as check the parameters as send com-
mands or execute changes to the equipment configuration except for the following
operations: modifying the user list, aligning the date/time of the equipment, force
the logout of a user and all those operations available only to the Admin. user.
Maintenance. The user with this profile can check the parameters and execute
only maintenance operations (MAN OP) in the Manual Operations contextual area.
Read Only. The user with this profile can only check the parameters.
Protocols which will be available to the users assigned to the group:
Protocol HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol), used to transfer hypertext pages on
the WEB.
Protocol HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol over SSL): variation of HTTP proto-
col and uses, besides TCP/IP protocol, SSL layer (Secure Sockets Layer) which im-
plements the encryption and the authentication of the transmitted data.
Protocol SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), which allows monitoring
and controlling the network device. The user can activate the use of the first ver-
sion (SNMPv1), the second version (SNMPv2c) or the third version (SNMPv3) of
the protocol.
Protocol FTP (File Transfer Protocol), for the file transfer based on TCP.
Protocol SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol): protocol for the secure file transfer.
Protocol SSH (Secure SHell Protocol): protocol for the secure and encrypted ac-
cess.
More options can be enabled at the same time.

At the first connection with the equipment or after a Factory Default operation, a default group
is available with the following characteristics:
Name: Admin.
Profile: Administrator.

102 WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002


Enabled protocols: HTTP, FTP and SNMPv1.
The default group can be changed but not deleted.

Via WEB LCT application, the user can Verify the user groups and only one user with Adminis-
trator profile can Add a user group, Modify a user group or Delete a user group.

Users
The users belonging to the list are organized in groups for which a profile and the enabling to
the use of the HTTP, HTTPS, SNMP, FTP, SFTP and SSH protocols can be defined.
The profile and the authorization of a group will be automatically assigned to the user who is
associated to that group.
The characteristics of an user are:
Name/Password. Name and access password, which allow the program recognizing the
user as authorized.
The same user can open more WEB LCT page relevant to different equipment.
The name of an user must be unique within an user list.
The name of an user, once assigned, cannot be changed.
Group which the user is associated to and from which the user inherits the profile and
the enabling to the use of HTTP, HTTPS, SNMP, FTP, SFTP and SSH protocols.
Every user belonging to a group with profile Administrator, besides being a WEB user, is
even a CLI user because a user with profile Administrator is automatically enabled by the
system to access to the equipment even by the application SM-OS SM-OS (Siae Micro-
elettronica - Operating System).
Timeout of the WEB LCT session opened by the user. It is possible to:
Disable the timeout: the WEB LCT session opened by the user (even if disconnect-
ed) will be preserved for an indefinite period of time.
Enable the timeout: the WEB LCT session opened by the user, if disconnected, will
be automatically terminated once the set time period is reached.
With disconnected session we mean a WEB LCT session for which the relevant
WEB LCT page has been closed, but the disconnection from the equipment has not
been performed (user logout).

At the first connection with the equipment or after a Factory Default operation, a default user
is available with the following characteristics:
User: admin
Password: admin
Group: Admin. (default group - see characteristics in previous paragraph).
Profile: Administrator.
Timeout: 300 sec.

WARNING At the first access, it is suggested to immediately change the password of the default
user in order to limit the risk of intrusion via this account.
The default user can be modified or deleted. The only condition is that there must be at least
one other user with Administrator profile in the user list.

Through WEB LCT application, the user can Verify the user list and, only an user with Adminis-
trator profile, Add a user, Modify a user or Delete a user.

NMS5UX user
If the equipment is managed even by NMS5UX-B/NMS5LX supervision system, it is necessary
to create the user used by the supervision system for the connection to the equipment.
This user must be associated to a group with profile Administrator and all the protocols enabled.
More information about the NMS5UX-B/NMS5LX supervision system is reported in the relevant
documentation.

Radio Link (info)

AGS-20 equipment manages different types of Radio Links.


With Radio Link we mean a connection between one or more ports (IF) of the indoor unit (AGS-20) and
one or more outdoor units (ODU) which are considered one or more integral parts of AGS-20 network
equipment.

A Radio Link can have different configurations: 1+0, 1+1 HSB, 1+1 FD and 2+0 XPIC.
Two Radio Links in configuration 1+0 can be oriented to two different sites (configuration 2x(1+0) E-W)
or to a single site (configuration 2x(1+0). In the latter case, the Ethernet traffic of the two Radio Links has
to be necessarily aggregated.
Even in case of configuration 2+0 XPIC, the Ethernet traffic has to be necessarily aggregated.

In all the configurations, the ODUs are always connected to the IDUs through a dedicated channel avail-
able via IF cables.
The management programs access to the ODUs only through the IDU controller, this means that IDU and
ODU are always seen as a single network element.

The creation of the Radio Link must be executed by the operator via WEB LCT (see Create a Radio Link).
Once created, a Radio Link can be changed or deleted (see Modify a Radio Link and Delete a Radio Link).

Tab.4 shows, for each configuration of the Radio Link (native or system), the types of AGS-20 for which it
is available.

1+0
The Radio Link in configuration 1+0 uses a single ODU.
In this configuration, the radio offers no protection against the hardware failures.

1+1 HSB - 1+1 FD


The Radio Link in configuration 1+1 uses two ODUs.
In this configuration, the radio module offers protection against the hardware failures.
The protection logic supports two protection architectures:
Frequency Diversity (FD). Two parallel Tx-Rx connections using two different fre-
quencies. Both Tx branches are working; in Rx the best of the received signals is
used.
Hot Stand-By (HB). Two parallel Tx-Rx connections. One Tx is operating while the
second Tx is "mute"; in Rx the best of the received signals is used.

2x(1+0)
The equipment in radio configuration 2x(1+0) uses two ODUs connected to the same site.
In this configuration, two different Radio Links in configuration 1+0 have to be defined, which
use two different frequencies.
The two Radio Links have to be necessarily aggregated by means of the functionality Physical
Layer Aggregation in such a way to create a single Bundle routed into the same direction (see
Aggregate the Radio ports of a Link).
The radio parameters can be independent and the TDM traffic can be managed separately on
both the radio links.

2x(1+0) E-W
The equipment in radio configuration 2x(1+0) E-W uses two ODUs connected with two different
sites.
In this configuration, two different Radio Links in configuration 1+0 must be defined.
The radio signal is forwarded in two different directions named, by convention, East and West.
The radio parameters (modulation, bandwidth, channel frequency) are completely independent
and the traffic (TDM and Ethernet) is managed separately on both the radio links.

WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002 123


2+0 XPIC
The Radio Link in configuration 2+0 XPIC uses two ODUs connected to the same site which
transmit on two polarizations of one antenna using the same frequency (functionality XPIC -
Cross Polarization Interference Cancellation).
In this configuration, one Radio Link in configuration 2+0 XPIC.
The two ODUs have to be necessarily aggregated by means of the functionality Physical Layer
Aggregation in such a way to create a single Bundle routed into the same direction (see Aggre-
gate the Radio ports of a Link).

XPIC function (info)

XPIC function
The function XPIC (Crosspolar Interference Canceller) is a modem functionality which allows us-
ing the double polarization (vertical and horizontal) in the transmission system.
In this way, exploiting two polarizations, the transmission capacity of the Radio Link can be dou-
ble using a single frequency.

WEB LCT
In relation to XPIC function, through GUI it is possible:
To disable temporarily the function XPIC for every single ODU (Disable temporarily
the function XPIC for a single ODU) and then to re-enable it (Restore the XPIC func-
tion of the single ODU).
Disabling the function XPIC is a manual operation (MAN. OP). Remember that, if the
timeout of the manual operations is inactive, the function XPIC remains disabled until
when it is restored by the user.
To enable and disable XPIC fault management procedure (FMP) (see Enable/disable
XPIC fault management procedure (FMP).
In case of detection and signalling of a fault, the function XPIC can be restored (see
Restore the function XPIC after a fault detection).

FMP procedure
Purpose of the FMP (Fault Management Procedure) procedure is to identify a malfunction caused
by equipment faults and by equipment faults and to preserve the horizontal or vertical branch
where there are not problems
The procedure differentiates the alarms due to external causes (e.g., fading) from those due to
equipment faults.
The activation of the FMP procedure involves the switch-off of a transmitter and the disabling of
the Xpic inputs.
The condition is permanent and only an operator by means of WEB LCT or NMS5UX-B/
NMS5LX can restore the normal operating condition.

Header Compression (info)

Packets belonging to the same stream have a great part of their header (up to 90%) that does not change
in time (IP and MAC addresses, TAG Ethernet, MPLS labels, etc).

The Header Compression hop-by-hop functionality allows storing, at the ends of a Radio Link, all the infor-
mation which repeats identical packet after packet and transmitting only the variable fields (Sequence
Number, TimeStamp, etc).

This allows achieving good gains in terms of throughput in presence of long communication streams char-
acterized by a great number of packets (for example, real-time communication). In order to achieve this
result, it is necessary to support a lot of streams at the same time, so to maximise the gain.

The set of static information of the packets belonging to the same stream is stored by the compression/
decompression module and is defined context.

The compression function will operate in the direction from LAN to Radio, while the decompression function
will operate in the opposite direction.

STP/RSTP Protocol (info)

Spanning Tree Protocol (STP)


Spanning Tree is a protocol for the management of the connections, which supports the redun-
dancy of the path avoiding the creation of unwished loops in the network. In order that an Ether-
net network operates correctly, only an active path must exist between two stations. Multiple
active paths cause loops in the network and, as consequence, the possible replication of the
messages to infinity.
The Spanning Tree protocol constitutes a tree logic network which pass through all the bridges
into a complex physical network forcing the possible duplicated paths (possible loops) into a
stand-by status.
If a network segment becomes unreachable or if the cost of a path changes, the algorithm of
Spanning Tree reconfigures the topology of the network activating an alternative path.
To make this possible, STP needs to know the whole network. The Bridges have to define the
main Bridge (Bridge Root) and calculate the role of the ports (Root, Designated, etc.) using the
known information. To ensure that every bridge has the information, the Bridges use special
packets called Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDU) for the exchange of information on the IDs of
the Bridges and on the cost of the path from the Root element.
The BPDU packets are periodically exchanged and allow the Switch keeping trace of the network
changes to start and stop the transmission of the ports, on demand.
A Bridge sends a BPDU packet using the univocal MAC address of the port as source address and
the STP multicast address 01:80:C2:00:00:00 as destination address.
For more information, refer to the standard IEEE 802.1d (Spanning Tree Protocol).

Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP)


The protocol Rapid STP decreases, with respect to STP, the time necessary for the re-configu-
ration of the active network when the physical topology or the network configuration parameters
are changed.
The RSTP protocol has been designed to be compatible with the STP protocol.
For more information, refer to the standard IEEE 802.1D-2004 (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol).

AGS-20
The equipment can be configured to work with the STP protocol or the RSTP protocol (see Verify/
modify the version of the protocol (STP/RSTP)).
The use of the protocol must be enabled at Switch level and at single port level (see Enable/
disable the use of STP/RSTP protocol for the equipment).
Before enabling the protocol, it is suggested to set the relevant configuration parameters. By
WEB LCT, it is possible to configure:

Bidirectional LLF (info)

The bidirectional LLF functionality allows interrupting the connection with the remote equipment (in both
directions) as consequence of the disabling of the LANs of the local equipment due to Link Loss Forwarding.

For the correct configuration of the bidirectional LLF functionality for a radio connection, it is necessary to
perform the operations described in the following example.
Suppose you wish to disable the LAN-1 ports (on local and remote equipment) as consequence of LLF de-
tected by the local LAN-1 port. The Radio Link is in 1+0 configuration.

Operations to perform for the LOCAL equipment via the GUI:

a. Select Base Band > Ethernet > LLF.

b. Configure a port for the management of LLF functionality setting the following values:
Port: LAN 1
LLF Status: Enable
Alarm to Circuit: Enable
Delay Time: any value

c. Configure the radio circuit for the forwarding of the LOS alarm present on LAN selecting LAN 1
in the Ports area and setting the following values:
Circuit: #1 Link ID: ODU-A
LOS to Circuit: Enable

d. Press Apply and continue.

Operations to perform for the REMOTE equipment via the GUI:

a. Select Base Band > Ethernet > LLF.

b. Configure a port for the management of LLF functionality setting the following values:
Port: LAN 1
LLF Status: Enable
Alarm to Circuit: Enable
Delay Time: any value

c. Press Apply and continue.

With this configuration, an alarm in reception on the remote terminal causes the activation of LLF alarm
and the consequent disabling of the associated LAN-1 port on both the terminals.

Queue Depth contextual area

The contextual area displays the policy for the management of the depth of the queues in output (8 queues
per port).
The Switch can insert a limited number of packets into every queue. This limit, indicated as depth, can be
configured by the user. During the period of high traffic, a queue is filled by packets waiting for the trans-
mission. When a queue reaches its limit, by default the Switch discards the packets until when the queue
is not full longer.

Parameters
Profile. Available profiles of the output queues:
Full dynamic memory. This configuration, identical for every queue, allows the dy-
namic allocation of memory per queue up to 1/8 of the total memory available in eve-
ry moment.
Priority based memory allocation.... This configuration is based on the principle for
which the lower priority traffic needs longer queues. The proper forwarding of the
traffic at the different priorities (and queue) allows achieving the wished length.
Uniform memory allocation.... This configuration provides queues with constant
length, independently from the traffic priority. The use of WRED algorithms allows
changing the method used to store the different traffic types, obtaining different
depths.
Line ports dynamic memory (no radio port). This configuration, identical for every
queue of the line ports, allows the dynamic allocation of memory per queue up to 1/
8 of the total memory available in every moment. The radio ports are not used.

Management of synchronisation

AGS-20 equipment can be configured to operate with synchronisation enabled or disabled.


When the synchronisation is disable, the synchronisation is not managed: the clocks are generated by the
local internal reference.
When the synchronisation is enabled, the synchronism source, enabled with the highest priority, is used
to synchronise the equipment (if a forcing or a preferential is not active).
The user can enable or disable the management of synchronisation as he wishes (see Verify/modify the
management of synchronisation).

Synchronism sources

The equipment has more synchronism sources:


Internal. Source extracted from an its own internal reference (25MHz STRATUM 3e).
T3 SYNC. Source extracted from the synchronism port SYNC (2Mb/s or 2MHz).
TE SyncE A. First source extracted from one of the LAN interface (LAN 1 LAN 6).
TE SyncE B. Second source extracted from one of the LAN interface (LAN 1 LAN 6).
T2 E1. Source extracted from one of the equipment E1 tributaries.
Source available only for equipment with TDM module (see Tab.9).
ODU/LAN A. Source extracted from the Radio A interface.
ODU/LAN B. Source extracted from the Radio B interface.
Source available only for equipment with more ODU (see Tab.4).
ODU/LAN C. Source extracted from the LAN C interface.
ODU/LAN D. Source extracted from the LAN D interface.

Enabling of the synchronism sources

A synchronism source, in order to be used, must be enabled by the user (see Enable/disable the use of a
synchronism source).

232 WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002


Priority of the synchronism source

A priority level can be associated to every synchronism source (see Modify the use priority of a synchronism
source).

The source with the highest priority level and whose signal is valid, is used to synchronize the equipment
(if a forcing or a preferential source is not active).

The priority level of the synchronism source is pointed out by a number between 1 and 9, where 1 indicates
the highest priority and 9 the lowest one.

Generally the equipment takes the synchronism from the source with the highest priority level: if this
source is missing or is degraded, the synchronism is taken from the source with priority level immediately
lower.

When the source with highest priority level returns to be valid, the equipment after the WTR time will au-
tomatically start to use it to take the synchronism. If all the synchronism sources (set by the user) become
unavailable, the equipment automatically takes the synchronism from its own internal reference.

The degradation of the signal is caused by the presence of, at least, one of the following conditions:
The source is not physically present.
The difference between the source frequency and the internal reference source (STRATUM 3e)
is greater than 7 ppm.

If two or more sources with the same priority are activated, these sources will be inserted into a circular
and not Revertive list.

Quality of synchronism source

Every synchronism source is characterized by a quality level.


When the use of quality is enabled, it concurs in the selection of the source to use for the synchronisation
in the following way: the source with higher quality level, and whose signal is valid, is used to synchronize
the equipment (if a forcing is not active).

The quality level of one source is contained in the Synchronisation Status Messages (SSM). These messag-
es are periodically transmitted; the absence of a message is considered as condition of failure of the syn-
chronisation mechanism.
The availability quality levels, from higher to lower level, are listed here below:
PRC (Primary Reference Clock). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-T G.781 with
extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the primary reference
clock.
SSUT (Synchronisation Supply Unit Transit). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-
T G.781 with extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the
transit synchronism units.
SSUL (Synchronisation Supply Unit Local). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-T
G.781 with extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the syn-
chronism local units.
SEC (SDH Equipment Clock). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-T G.781 with
extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the equipment clock.

Depending on the type of synchronism source, the modality used to insert and extract the SSM messages
changes as pointed out here below.

Synchronism sources TE SyncE A and TE SyncE B (Ethernet)


The technology Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) allows converting Ethernet into a synchronous
network through the transmission of the frequency information over the physical level. It allows
a master-slave synchronisation architecture, where the time information is transferred port to
port by the physical level. The selection of the roles of Master and Slave takes place through the
transmission of SSM messages.
The management of the SSM messages can be enabled for every single LAN.
For the synchronism sources TE SyncE A and TE SyncE B, the quality management depends on
the LAN interface and by the management of the SSM messages as indicated here below.

sources

WARNING The quality of the synchronism sources is a feature subjected to enabling (Sync quality man-
agement equipment feature).
If this feature is not enabled, all the parameters relevant to the quality management will not be available
(see Verify the equipment feature).

Forcing of a synchronism source

This function foresees the user can force the selection of one synchronism source (see Force the use of a
synchronism source).
This forcing is made without considering the status and the priority of the source.

This function must not be used for the normal operation of the synchronism. It is a maintenance operation
and remains active until the user disables it or the Timeout period of the manual operations expires (if set).

Function of preferential synchronism source

This function foresees the choice of a source to use as preferential among those enabled (see Set a syn-
chronism source as preferential).

When the function of preferential source is not active, the internal synchronism is taken from the enabled
source with highest priority.

WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002 235


When the function of preferential source is activated for a source, this source will be used (in absence of
alarms causing its degradation or forced sources) to take the internal synchronism independently from its
priority level.

This condition is maintained until when the user disables the function of preferential source or the source
signal becomes degraded.

Internal synchronism T0

The synchronism source, which the internal synchronism T0 is extracted from, is determined by the SETS
of the equipment according to the following order of criteria:
Status of the source (enabled/disabled)
Forcing of the source
Status of the signal (valid/degraded)
Preferential source
Source priority

The internal synchronism T0 can assume one of the following statuses:


Free Running. The status of Free Running is forced (synchronism T0 is generated by the equip-
ment internal reference - Internal Source).
Hold Over. The status of Hold Over is forced.
Locked. The synchronism is locked to an external source.

The user can force the status of the internal synchronism T0 (see Force the status of the T0 synchronisa-
tion).
The forcing of the status Hold Over or Free Running is not the normal operation of the synchronism T0.
These forcings are maintenance operations and remain active until when the user does not disable them
or the Timeout period of the manual operation expires (if set).

Re-timing of the E1s set for the contemporary transport of traffic and synchronisa-
tion

WARNING Function available only for equipment with TDM module (see Tab.9).

The function called Re-timing of E1s allows re-timing the E1s set for the contemporary transport of traffic
and synchronisation, to increase the requirements of jitter and wander even in case of operation with adap-
tive modulation (ACM).

Generally, the tributaries of equipment TDM module transport traffic.

If the user wants to use their frequency for synchronisation purposes in any condition of operation of the
radio transport (ACM enabled), it is necessary to execute the operations described in the following exam-
ple.

Suppose you want to re-timing the tributary 1 used for the contemporary transport of traffic and synchro-
nisation between the local equipment and the remote equipment (see Fig.4).

Test RF Loop (info)

The AGS-20 equipment with ODU of new generation is provided with an internal diagnostics functionality,
based on a loop executed in preset operating condition in such a way to verify the transceiver functionality.
The execution of the test is independent from the type of traffic (TDM, Ethernet, hybrid) and does not need
any external measurement tools.
At the end of the test, the result of the diagnosis is displayed: test executed correctly (ODU operating),
test failed (ODU faulted).

The test is a manual operation (MAN OP), so its execution is subjected to the timeout of the manual oper-
ations.
If the timeout:
Is enabled, at the end of the test the condition of Loop RF is preserved until the expiry of the
duration of the MAN OP unless it is removed immediately at the end of the test, as described in
the specific procedure.
Is not enabled, at the end of the test it is necessary to remove the condition of Loop RF, as de-
scribed in the specific procedure.
If the test is interrupted by the system, a possible reason could be that the set timeout was lower than the
execution time of the test. It is suggested to set the timeout to a value greater than that of execution of
the test.

In case of equipment wit Radio Link in:


1+1 Hot Standby radio configuration systems, the activation of the test on the stand-by branch
involves the loss of the connection of the working branch, because the remote transmitter is
switched off.
1+1 Freq. Div radio configuration systems, the activation of the test on the stand-by branch in-
volves the degradation or the loss of the connection of the working branch, because even on
this one the same modulation is (mandatory) set.

Radio switch (info)

Management of the radio switch


The radio switches (reception and transmission), for the AGS-20 equipment with Radio Link in
protected configuration, generally operate in automatic mode: the equipment executes a switch
when specific alarms raises on the operating radio branch (ODU).
The user can manage the radio switch executing some forcing operations and enabling the pref-
erential branch.

Forcing a radio branch to operate (switch in reception and switch in transmission)


This function foresees the user can force a radio branch to operate independently from alarms
which can be active on Link (see Modify the management of the switching in reception (Rx
Forced Switch)/Modify the management of the switching in transmission (Tx Forced Switch)
This function must not be used for the normal operation of the radio switch in reception and/or
transmission. It is a maintenance operation and remains active until when the user deactivates
it or the timeout period of the manual operation expires (if set).

Preferential radio branch (switch in transmission)


This function provides the choice of a branch to be used in a preferential way in transmission
when there are not alarms that cause the switching on Link (see Modify the preferential branch
for the service at transmission (Tx Preferential).
When the switching is automatically managed by the controller, it executes the switching when
on the branch on service there are present some specific alarms.
When the alarms have been reset, the controller does not execute again the switching. While,
if it has been set a preferential branch when the operator resets the alarms, if the branch on
service is not the preferential one, the controller executes the switching and it uses for the ser-
vice the branch set by the operator as the preferential one (naturally if the branch does not have
any alarms).
Besides a time period can be defined (Wait Time) during which the service is kept on the non-
preferential branch before being restored to the preferential branch, in such a way to avoid the
continue switch between the two branches in case of fleeting alarms.
For instance, suppose that an alarm occurs causing the switch of the service from the preferen-
tial branch to the other branch. When the alarm clears, the preferential branch is not immedi-
ately restored to service but postponed by n seconds (Wait Time period), during which the
controller verifies that the same alarm has not occurred again on the preferential branch. At the
end of the Wait Time period, if the alarm has not occurred again, the service is restored to the
preferential branch. Otherwise, the switch is delayed by other n seconds, during which the con-
troller verifies that the same alarm has not occurred again and so on.
In any moment the user can Force the switch on the preferential branch without waiting for the
Wait Time expiration.

RMon standard (info)

RMon Standard
RMon (Remote Monitoring) is a standard whose function is providing a set of services of statistics
count, monitoring and alarm report with reference to the activity of a LAN network.
These services are defined in terms of MIB (Management Information Base) group described in
the document RFC2819 - Remote Network Monitoring Management Information Base, which
must be read for any further detail.

Outline on the operation


RMon standard is based on two components: an agent (RMon probe) and a client (remote man-
agement station).
The agent saves the data within its own RMon tables present on the network devices (equip-
ment, routers, etc.). The RMon probes can see only the traffic flowing through themselves.
The remote management station communicates with the RMon agent to obtain and correlate the
RMon data. Generally, the station is equipped with an interface (graphic or textual) which allows
the display and the analysis of the collected RMon data.

Management from Web LCT


The Rmon functionality available in WEB LCT allows monitoring the status of the Ethernet Switch
ports in compliance with the RMON standard.
With reference to what depicted in the previous paragraph, the Rmon functionality acts as client
which, through the commands present in the GUI, allows the analysis and the management of
the data collected by the probes.
The probes are present at level of:
Port (line/radio) of the Ethernet Switch (RMon instance per Port). This instance allows
monitoring all the traffic in input/output to/from one port of the Ethernet Switch.
VLAN (RMon instance Port & VLAN). This instance allows monitoring only the traffic in
input/output to/from one Ethernet port with a given VLAN identifier (C-VID or S-VID ac-
cording to the Bridge operating modality).
Priority (RMon instance Port & Priority). This instance allows monitoring only the traffic
in input/output to/from one Ethernet port with a given priority value (Internal Priority).
The probes collect the statistic data, which are stored in the RMon table of the equipment.
Currently, the equipment implements the RMON MIB groups Statistics and History.

RMON MIB group: Statistics


Rmon functionality can display to the user, through the GUI, the current statistics measured by
the RMon probes (see Display the values of the RMon statistic counters (RMon instances per
Port) and Display the values of the RMon statistic counters (RMon instances Port & Priority and
Port & VLAN).
To display the counters of an instance, it is necessary to enable the involved instance (see Set
a RMon instance per Port to the count of the RMon statistics and Set a RMon instance Port &
Priority or Port & VLAN to the count of the RMon statistics) and then activate the counting (see
Activate the count of the RMon statistics).
The count will be active for this instance until the user deactivates it (see Deactivate the count
of the RMon statistics) or deletes the instance (see Delete a RMon instance per Port for the count
of the RMon statistics and Delete a RMon instance Port & Priority or Port & VLAN for the count
of the RMon statistics.

RMON MIB group: History


Rmon functionality can display to the user, through the GUI, the evolution in time (history) of
the statistics relevant to the counters in input/output of every monitored probes (see Display
the history of the RMon statistic (RMon instances per Port) and Display the history of the RMon
statistic (RMon instance Port & Priority and Port & VLAN).
At equipment level, the value of the counters of the RMon probes is stored in the statistics his-
tory every x seconds (sampling interval) for a total number of samples to take programmable
from 1 to 240. The equipment stores these data into a circular buffer where, when full, the new
information replaces the old one.

WEB LCT AGS-20 - Release 1.1 - MN.00327.E - 002 287


In order to memorize in the database and display the statistics history of one instance, it is nec-
essary to activate the instance (see Set a RMon instance per Port to the count of the history of
the RMON statistics and Set a RMon instance Port & Priority or Port & VLAN to the count of the
history of the RMON statistics) and then activate the count (see Activate the count of the RMon
statistics).
The count will be active for this instance until the user deactivates it (see Deactivate the count
of the RMon statistics) or deletes the instance (see Delete a RMon instance per Port for the count
of the history of the RMON statistics and Delete a RMon instance Port & Priority or Port & VLAN
for the count of the history of the RMON statistics).
When an instance is activated, the supervision system starts memorizing the data relevant to
the statistics and makes them available to the user, in table format, subdivided for single RMon
instance.
When an instance is created, it is possible to set if the data must be automatically stored or not
(parameter Persistence). The storing modes are described here below.

WEB LCT page displays a warning window.
The window contains the buttons to continue the script processing or to stop it (see the docu-
mentation relevant to ones browser).
In this case, the use of CLI interface (application SM-OS) to display the counters or the enabling
of the Persistance function (automatic archive of RMon statistics) and the export via FTP of the
results on CSV file are suggested.
