  38. 38. 3-3 3 Setup of Terminals3 Setup of Terminals This chapter describes step by step how to set up MINI-LINK terminals. Examples of setup for different MINI-LINK configurations are given in section 3.5. For the supervision to work, the MINI-LINK equipment must be interconnected via the different communication channels (see section 4.1.2), and every terminal within the sub-network must have a unique ID (identity). Each terminal must also know the IDs of other terminals connected to its own communication channels. 3 For further information on cabling, see the cabling section in MINI-LINK E Installation Manual, MINI-LINK E Micro Installation Manual and in the user’s manuals for MINI-LINK C and MkII equipment.3.1 IDs Within a network, every terminal must have a unique ID (identity) for the message router to work properly. A MINI-LINK E terminal is one side of a hop (consisting of the indoor parts (MMUs and SMUs) and outdoor parts (RAUs)) or an SAU. A MINI-LINK E Micro terminal is one side of a hop (a MINI-LINK E Micro radio). A MINI-LINK C or MkII terminal is a radio or an SMM.

Example of MINI-LINK E, E Micro, C and MkII terminal IDs. An ID consists of a combination of four characters; digits (0-9), capital letters (A-Z) or small letters (a-z). The first three characters can, for example, be used to define the site, and the last character to define the terminal on the site. The own ID of a terminal can only be set or changed with the PC connected to the terminal or, for MINI-LINK E a terminal in the same access module. This is for safety reasons, so as not to lose supervision contact by mistake.3.1.1 Restricted IDs The following IDs are restricted IDs that must not be used: TRMA, TRMB, SMMA, SMMB and AAAA. BBBB is reserved for non-existing equipment. EN/LZT 110 5057 R2A

  59. 59. 3 Setup of Terminals 3-243.6 Example of Traffic Setup with Routing Note: Traffic routing is guaranteed only for a configuration verified according to the MINI-LINK E Planning and Engineering manual and when you consider the prerequisites below and follow the instructions in section 3.2.3. The following prerequisites apply to traffic routing: - The MMUs and SMUs must have software version > R4. - The back-plane in the AMM is optimized for a net with tree structure. To fully use an AMM, the terminal with the highest traffic capacity should be placed in the position with highest pos number in the AMM. - Always route on the highest possible traffic rate level (on 8 Mbit/s level instead of 2 Mbit/s level, for example). - The traffic can be routed between the terminals on a 2, 8 and 34 Mbit/s level. - The terminal configuration is based on the alternatives provided in AM Setup. - The MUXes are defined in the AM Setup. In the Traffic Setup it is possible to connect or disconnect the MUXes - this can only be done for SMU MUXes. - 8 Mbit/s can be connected to the 2 Mbit/s connector on the front. Below is an example on how to set the traffic routing in the Traffic Setup window. Traffic in to the node: 34+2 Mbit/s, 1+1 Traffic out from the node: 2x8 Mbit/s, 1+1 6x2 Mbit/s on the front EN/LZT 110 5057 R2A

  66. 66. 4-3 4 Network Management4 Network Management4.1 Network Supervision The Control and Supervision System (CSS) in the MINI-LINK equipment makes it possible to supervise a sub-network from any point in the sub- network. Each MINI-LINK unit (except the MINI-LINK E RAU) is provided with an RS-232 communication port, which gives access to the full range of CSS utilities. With a PC connected to this port (the O&M port on MINI-LINK E equipment and the TERM port on MINI-LINK C and MkII equipment), you can read any alarm and status signal in the sub-network. For the supervision to work, the MINI-LINK equipment must be interconnected via the different communication channels (see section 4.1.2), and every terminal within the sub-network must have a unique ID. Each 4 terminal must also know the ID of the remote terminal and the IDs of other terminals connected to its own communication channels. The ID of a near-end terminal can only be set or changed with the PC connected to a terminal in the same access module. This is for safety reasons, so as not to lose supervision contact by mistake. It is possible to supervise several clusters connected to one sub-network. This requires an RAC port (MINI-LINK E SAU). MINI-LINK Service Manager 502B 503A Sub-network Figure 4-1. The supervised network list in the Network window consists of MINI-LINK equipment in the MINI-LINK sub-networks. EN/LZT 110 5057 R2A
