2.2.4.1 Colours of The Network Element Icons
According to its operational state, the NE icon inner box can be represented with
one of the colours below. The colour definition is compliant with ITU/T
recommendations Z.323 and Z 322.
Magenta
The system is discarding alarms from the NE, thus the NE icon colour
does not match the real equipment alarm state.
Red
The communication between EM and NE is active. One or more critical
alarms are currently active on the NE.
Orange
The communication between EM and NE is active. One or more major
alarms are currently active on the NE.
Yellow
The NE is communicating with the EM. One or more Minor alarms are
currently active on the NE.
Blue
The NE is communicating with the EM. One or more Warning alarms
are currently active on the NE.
Green
In Service state. The NE is communicating with the EM. No active
alarms are present.
Sea Green
The NE is communicating with the EM. The Parking State has been set
in the NE.
Grey
Isolated.The NE is not communicating with the EM.
Brown (white icon foreground)
The NE Family is unavailable (stopped). A user has manually stopped
the processes relevant to that plug-in.
Black (white icon foreground)
The NE is unavailable (stopped). A user has manually stopped the
relevant NE communication processes.
White
The communication to the NE is being started. The duration of this state
can depends on the performance of the network. At the system start-up
the NEs get this state.
Note (*) For MHC, MTN and MSI, once started a NE, there are three situations for
which such NE becames white:
There is an authentication error (i.e. the SNMP password is not the right
one)
The ne type is not right.
There are communication errors with the NE.
When a NE becames white, the following events take place:
Comms Begin

Comms End Mode: Normal (Restart)
the cause field contains the three possible errors below:
SNMP Authentication error
Wrong NE type
Communication Error
Dark Brown (white icon foreground)
The NE Type is in "orphan" state. It means that its EM has been
unplugged.
NOTICE The NEs with the white foreground in their inner box are considered in
maintenance state. In this state, the NE GUI starting-up is prevented.

When a MINI-LINK E, E-Micro or SAU NE is selected in the tree, its
Configuration data are shown in the grid on the right side of the form. The first
column of the grid contains Configuration parameter names and the second one
contains Values.

When a MINI-LINK Traffic Node NE is selected in the tree, five tabs appear in
the right side of the form, showing the following data:

General Data
PPP Configuration
Static Routing Configuration
OSPF Area Configuration
Ethernet Configuration


When a MINI-LINK Traffic Node NE is expanded in the tree, a list of Radio
Terminal is showed. The Radio Terminal name is built in the following way:

Near end terminal:
1+0: 1/P+, where P =MMU slot position.
For example MMU in slot 2 ->1/2+
1+1 (2 board): P =x+y where x =the slot position of the first MMU and y =the
slot position of the second MMU.
For example MMU in slot 2 and 3 ->1/2+3
1+1 (3 board): P =x+y+z where x =the slot position of the first MMU and y =
the slot position of the second MMU and z 0 the slot position of the SMU.
For example MMU in slot 2 and 3 and SMU in slot 4 ->1/2+3+4

Far end terminal:
1+0: Fx/1+
1+1 (2 board): Fx/1+2
1+1 (3 board): Fx/1+2+3

Depending on terminal protection in the near end, x above is the slot for:

Near end MMU (Unprotected)
Near end MMU in lowest slot of the terminal (2 board protection)
Near end SMU (3 board protection)

Selecting a Radio Terminal in the tree, its configuration data are shown in the
grid on the right side of the window.
The first column of the grid contains Configuration parameter names and the
second one contains Values. The list of Configuration parameter will be different
depending from the type of MMU2 being in the Traffic Node: classic MMU2 or
MMU2 B/C.

The configuration parameters contain also the field Validity that can be 1 if the
collection has finished correctly or 0 if some error occurred during the last
collection.

In particular the Validity field can be 0 either on all the elements, if the whole
collection has failed, or only on Radio Terminal if some errors occurred during
the collection on such elements.

Figure 15 Configuration Differences view

In the grid there is a column for data belonging to last collection and another one
for data belonging to previous collection. In the tree, the NE icons are modified
in order to distinguish visualization of added and deleted NEs. The icons of
deleted NE (Custom and not) show a red cross, while the icons of added NE
(Custom and not) show a green check symbol.

NOTICE The NE Configuration Differences view reports the data collection aligned
with the SOM server real data up to previous 4 hours (in the worst case).

For MINI-LINK Traffic Node data (General Data, PPP, Static Routing, OSPF
Area and Ethernet) the current value and the previous value will appear in two
distinct rows of the data grid: the current value will have the character l in the
field Status, while the previous the character p.

3.2.2.5 Configuration Data Refresh
Selecting Refresh item in View menu, or F5 key, the operator can reload
collection data from database. This allows user to realign the displayed
hierarchy with the content of the database

Common References
4.1.1 Performance Values
See Also:
Meaning of the Fields
4.1.1.1 BBE
Background Block Errors.
A cumulative count indicating the number of errored blocks of a performance
data reporting period.
4.1.1.2 BBER
Background Block Error Ratio.
The EM calculates the ratio in the following way:
BBER =BBE/(p - SES)
where 'p' value is:
(900 - UAS) for 15m performance
(86400 - UAS) for 24H performance
If the (p - SES) value is equal to 0 the division is indeterminate and in this case
for the BBER value is displayed:
"Unavailable (UAS =full period)"
4.1.1.3 CSES
Consecutive Severely Errored Seconds.
When the number of consecutive SES exceeds the CSES threshold then CSES
is increased. Value range is from 2 to 9.
4.1.1.4 EFS
Error Free Seconds.
4.1.1.5 ES
Errored Seconds.
A cumulative count indicating the number of seconds during which block errors
have been detected.
4.1.1.6 ESR
Errored Seconds Ratio.
The EM calculates the ratio in the following way:
ESR =ES/p
where 'p' value is:
(900 - UAS) for 15m performance
(86400 - UAS) for 24H performance

Like the BBER value, if the 'p' value is equal to 0, the division is indeterminate
and in this case for the ESR value is displayed: "Unavailable (UAS =full period)"
4.1.1.7 FEBBE
Far End Background Block Errors.
4.1.1.8 FEES
Far End Errored Seconds.
4.1.1.9 FESES
Far End Severely Errored Seconds.
4.1.1.10 OFS
Out-of-Frame Seconds.
A cumulative count indicating the number of seconds during which Out-of-
Frame alignments have been detected.
4.1.1.11 PJE
Pointer J ustification Events.
It is an indication that a pointer justification event has occurred on AU/TU.
4.1.1.12 PJC
Pointer J ustification Counter.
4.1.1.13 PSC
Protection Switching Counter.
4.1.1.14 PSD
Protection Switching Duration.
4.1.1.15 SES
Severely Errored Seconds.
A cumulative count indicating the number of seconds of a performance data
period during which the preset threshold has been exceeded for a performance
entity.
4.1.1.16 SESR
Severely Errored Seconds Ratio.
The EM calculates the ratio in the following way:
SESR =SES/p
where 'p' value is:
(900 - UAS) for 15m performance
(86400 - UAS) for 24H performance
If the 'p' value is equal to 0 the division is indeterminate and in this case for the
SESR value is displayed:
"Unavailable (UAS =full period)"

4.1.1.17 SUE
Start of Unavailability Event.
When the number of consecutive SES exceeds the SUE threshold, then UAS is
increased.
4.1.1.18 TUE
Termination of Unavailability Events.
When the number of consecutive EFS (Error Free Second) exceeds the TUE
threshold, the increasing of the UAS is stopped.
4.1.1.19 UAS
UnAvailable Seconds.
A cumulative count indicating the unavailability of the related entity. It means
that the SUE threshold has been exceeded.
4.1.2 Performance Entity Types
