Trails

TDM Trails This page is used to configure the FibeAir IP-10 Cross Connect (XC) system for operation. FibeAir IP-10 Cross Connect system serves as a node in a microwave radio network. The system is designed to comply with requirements of a node in a network that aggregates several sites (downlinks) into a radio pipe (uplink). It can also be deployed in a mesh network configuration. The system consists of up to six IDUs placed together in a single chassis, for TDM traffic cross connect.

Up to Six IP-10 IDUs Installed in a Nodal Enclosure Once the IDUs are linked through the common backplane (as shown in the photo above), the XC system is constructed by building trails. To configure the trails for Cross-Connect operation: 1. Start the IP-10 Web Management application. The following web page is an example of the IP-10 IDUs that appear in a nodal configuration.

Note: Trail building is only done via the Main IDU (Slot 1 at the bottom). However, you can select any other IDU to set other configuration parameters for all the othe IDUs in the shelf. 2. On the left side of the main window, select Configuration, Trails, TDM Trails. Initially, the page that appears is empty. 3. Click Add, to create a new trail. The Add New Trail window appears. 4. To select the E1/T1 ports for the trail, in the Add New Trail window, click the E1/T1 interface in any IDU, and select the E1/T1, as shown in the example below.

To select the VC number you want to assign to the trail, click the RF interface in any IDU, as shown in the example page above. 5. Continue the trail configuration using the following options in the Add New Trail window: Protected - Select Yes if you want a secondary trail to cover for the main trail if it fails. If you chose Yes for Protected, a second interface will appear in the Add New Trail window, as follows:

Trail ID - Enter the ID of the trail. This ID is used to ensure that the flow of data over the link matches the trail designations. Trail Description - Enter a textual description of the trail for further identification purposes. ACM Priority - Adaptive Coding & Modulation employs the highest possible modulation during changing environmental conditions, which may be from QPSK to 256 QAM. If you select High for priority, the system will ensure that this trail is used to pass traffic when throughput for other trails is less efficient. Active/Reserved - Set the trail to Active, to enable its operation. If you want to define the trail, but keep it inactive for the time being, select Reserved.

Important Notes For the trail to function properly, it must be configured accordingly on both sides of the link. If a unit (IDU) is disconnected from the nodal enclosure and ceases to function as part of the shelf configuration, the removal will be acknowledged as an alarm. The IDU can then function as a stand-alone unit, using a "default" E1/T1 configuration. You can configure E1/T1 ports in the E1/T1 Ports page:

However, note that you do not enable the ports in this page. The ports are enabled only in accordance with the trails that you configure, as described in this guide.
