1 Introduction

The object of this document is to define a procedure to upgrade ALC plus radio links from system versions PRALPI10
01.00.01 or PRALPI11 01.01.00 to system version 01.02.02
1
The upgrade is traffic affecting: this procedure minimizes
the duration of traffic interruption. The upgrade procedure covers also the WebLCT upgrade from versions 01.00.0x
2
or
01.01.00 to version 01.01.01
This procedure is applicable to each ALC plus equipment of the network: it is presented as a procedure applicable using
the SCT/LCT, both from a local connection or from a remote one, or the WebLCT. All the download durations reported
in this document refers to a LAN connection between PC and equipment.

4 Preliminary check
Before starting the upgrade procedure be sure of the status of the equipment to be downloaded. In the SCT window
Current alarms verify the absence of internal alarms, i.e. alarms related to:
hardware module failures
software module failure
hardware or software mismatch
units not responding.

If the download is performed on a terminal connected to the SCT via the PPP radio, verify also the absence of any alarm
related to the radio connection, i.e.:
RX power low
TX power low
HBER, LBER or EWL.

The presence of any other kind of alarm must in any case be justified and its cause known before proceeding with the
download procedure.

We suggest not to perform the upgrade in presence of alarms.

In any case, even if no alarm is present, save the Fault Report (generated via the SCT or the WebLCT) as a reference, to
verify after the upgrade that no further alarms appeared and to have a reference about the inventory.

To assure the possibility to perform a downgrade back from 01.02.02 to 01.00.01/01.01.00 versions, or in any case to
recover the equipment if something goes wrong during the upgrade, before performing the download of version
01.02.02 you must save all the configuration data (using the SCT Configuration Wizard or the Backup/Restore function
of WebLCT).

Note: Saving the configuration before proceeding with the download of a new version is always recommended, even if
no downgrade is foreseen.

5 SW upgrade with SCT
In the following chapters a list of the necessary downloads is provided. Please, be sure to have read previous chapter 4
before performing the upgrade. To perform the SW upgrade with the WebLCT please refer to chapter 6.

5.1 Preliminary set-up
All downloads must be performed with the SCT connected as System. The local equipment (the one the SCT is
physically connected to) is usually connected as System during the SCT connection procedure, while if you need to
download remote equipment, you must perform a Login. After clicking on the equipment in the Alarm Summary /
ManOP / Station section of the SCT window, click on the Login button in the toolbar (see Figure 1)


Figure 1

The Remote Login window shall pop-up (see Figure 2). Insert SYSTEM as User, SIAEMICR as Password and click on
the OK button: the selected equipment shall be connected as System.


Figure 2

To perform a download you have to open the SCT window Version. Right-click with your mouse on the relevant
equipment, in the Alarm Summary / ManOP / Station section of the SCT window, and select the Version item in
the pop-up menu that shall appear, as shown in Figure 3.

8 Final check
After the upgrade procedure is finished, verify the status of the equipment by opening the SCT window Current
alarms or looking at the WebLCT Event list and verifying the absence of alarms.

If before starting the upgrade procedure some alarms were present, compare the list of the current alarms with the
previously saved ones.

If any new alarm is present, perform the download of the previously saved configuration, using the SCT Configuration
Wizard, in the Tools menu, or the Backup/Restore Configuration function of the WebLCT and then verify again the
alarm status.
