Overview This introduces you to the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal and Tellabs 6300 Ex-
tended Craft Terminal. It gives some background information about the Tel-
labs NM2100 Craft Terminal, Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal, and Tellabs 6300
Extended Craft Terminal. It also describes how to physically connect a Tellabs
6300 Craft Terminal to an NE. The following is discussed:
1.1 What is a Craft Terminal? on page 15
1.2 User Access with the Craft Terminal on page 19
1.3 Configuring a PPP Connection on page 21
1.4 Viewing which Version of Craft Terminal Software your Computer is
Running on page 62
1.1 What is a Craft Terminal?
The difference between
craft terminal and
network manager
Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal is composed of both the Tellabs NM2100 Craft
Terminal software and the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal software, which run on
a PC or laptop computer. The craft terminal connects directly to a network el-
ement (NE) in a network, and it is typically used to configure the NE that it is
connected to. You can also use the craft terminal to communicate remotely
with other NEs in a network by specifying the NSAP address of the NE in
question.

Tellabs

6300 Network Manager


Using the Craft Terminal
1 Getting Started with the Craft Terminal
The figure illustrates the difference between a craft terminal and a network
manager, as they relate to the individual network elements in the network.
The craft terminal connects directly to one of the NEs and regards that NE as
the local NE while all of the other NEs in the network are remote NEs. To
the network manager, all NEs in the network are equal (that is, they are all re-
mote).
Note: When you connect to an NE with a craft terminal, tell the Network
Management users that a craft terminal is connected and active, be-
cause the craft terminal overrides configurations that come from the
Network Management.
Tellabs 6300 Extended
Craft Terminal
The Tellabs 6300 Extended Craft Terminal lets you manage multiple NEs at
the same time. It helps manage small networks, with a maximum of 50 NEs.
While the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal connects directly to NEs with a man-
agement cable, the Tellabs 6300 Extended Craft Terminal connects to NEs
through the DCN, using the Ethernet interface. Refer to [15] and [16] for infor-
mation about DCN.
Refer to 7 Managing Multiple NEs with the Tellabs 6300 Extended Craft Ter-
minal on page 181 for information on how to work with the Tellabs 6300 Ex-
tended Craft Terminal.
Possible craft terminals
to use
This table shows which craft terminal to use to manage the various NEs:

1 Getting Started with the Craft Terminal
See Overview and shortcuts to procedures on page 67 to find the correct pro-
cedures for connecting to and communicating with a network element using
the craft terminal.
1.2 User Access with the Craft Terminal
Overview It is possible for the system administrator of the Tellabs 6300 management sys-
tem to restrict the amount of access the individual user has to the NE when
using the craft terminal. The system administrator gives each user an access
level setting, which requires password access. These issues are described in
the topics listed below:
1.2.1 Providing Security in the Craft Terminal on page 19
1.2.2 Changing the User Password on page 20
1.2.1 Providing Security in the Craft Terminal
Built-in Security Each craft terminal installation comes with a built-in security function. This
security function can be either active or inactive. The decision about whether
this security function is active or inactive must be made when the craft termi-
nal software is installed.
Note: If the craft terminal security function is not active but is required at a
later time, then it is necessary to install the craft terminal software
again.
The craft terminal security enables the system administrator to give the users
one of 3 different access levels. These access levels determine what the user
can actually access within the craft terminal application.
When the craft terminal security is active, each user must log in using a user
name and password.

access
When the craft terminal security is active, each user is given an access control
(AC) level. This access control level determines which parts of the craft termi-
nal application the user can access. The access control levels are:
1.2.2 Changing the User Password
To change your
password to log in to the
craft terminal
When the craft terminal security function is enabled, you must type in your
user name and password each time you start the craft terminal. This user
name and password is for the T6300NM system and not for the PC. This pro-
cedure describes how to change your own password.
Access Control Level Description
Administrator Users with this AC level have access to all win-
dows in the craft terminal application. In addi-
tion to this, they are also able to create new users,
edit access levels for existing users and remove
users using the User Manager window. User man-
agement is described in [17].
Manager Users with this AC level have access to all win-
dows in the craft terminal application.
Guest Users with this AC level have read-only access to
certain windows in the craft terminal application.
Note: Users with this AC level cannot start the
NM2100CT application.
Step Action

4.2 Connecting to a Remote Network Element
What is a remote NE? You can communicate with a remote network element through a locally at-
tached network element using the DCN. Such an NE is called a remote NE.
Communicating with a
remote NE
Communication with a remote NE is performed by transporting management
information from the NE that you are physically connected to, through the
network to the remote NE. The remote NE is identified by a unique address
called the NSAP address. See 4.6 NSAP Address on page 112.
Transporting
management information
Tellabs 63xx NEs connect through the OSI DCN. Management traffic travels
between NEs via a channel called the Embedded Control Channel (ECC). The
ECC can be contained in the DCC
R
or DCC
M
bytes of the SDH section over-
head or a 2 Mbit/s tributary unit (TU-12), depending on how the NE is con-
figured. It is important that the ECCs of neighboring NEs are configured sim-
ilarly. The figure shows how a craft terminal communicates with NEs in an
STM-<n> ring via the ECC.
Tellabs 6315 nodes, ETEX mapping NEs and ETEX switching and mapping
NEs connect through the IP DCN. Management traffic (SNMP-based) travels
in the same network as the payload traffic. This means that management traf-
fic and user traffic share the same capacity. Refer to [15] and [16] for more in-
formation about DCN management traffic.
6 Click Finish.
The Equipment View window for the local Tellabs 6315 node, ETEX
mapping NE or ETEX switching and mapping NE appears.
You can now communicate directly with the local NE in question.
Refer to 19 ETEX Equipment View in the Craft Terminal on page
303 for more information.

4.6 NSAP Address
Overview The address of a Tellabs 63xx NE or Tellabs 7200 NE is called an NSAP ad-
dress and must be unique. This address makes it possible for the Tellabs 6300
Craft Terminal to communicate directly with, and therefore manage, the re-
mote NE in question. The following is described:

4.6.2 Changing an NSAP Address on page 113.
4.6.1 Description of the NSAP Address
Structure of the NSAP
address assigned during
production
NEs are assigned the default NSAP address 490001<System/Node ID>01 dur-
ing production. You can change this default value, as described in
4.6.2 Changing an NSAP Address on page 113.

Note: With tellabs equipment, the default Area Address 490001 and the Selec-
tor Field part 01 of the NSAP address are always the same, only the Sys-
tem/Node ID part is different:
Where to find the unique
MAC address of an NE
The central management module for the NE has a label attached to its side. On
this label you can read the unique MAC address (Ethernet address) given to
the module during its production. The MAC address is printed after the letters
"EA=" (which stands for Ethernet address).
4.6.2 Changing an NSAP Address
Changing an NSAP
address
The NSAP address of an NE can be changed by pre-configuring the network
element using the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal. It is important that NSAP ad-
dresses fulfil certain requirements. An NSAP address consists of a number of
bytes, where each byte is written as a pair of hexadecimal digits (0 9, A, B, C,
D, E, F), some of which the user can choose.
To change the NSAP
address of an NE
You can change the NSAP address of an NE as described in this procedure.
For a description of the NSAP address and its format, see 4.6.1 Description of
the NSAP Address on page 112.
Warning: An NSAP address should not be changed unless network planners
have authorized the change. In this case, you should know exactly
which NSAP address to type during the following procedure. You
should be especially aware of the consequences of changing the area
address part of an NEs NSAP address. If the area address part of an
NEs NSAP address is changed, it could render the NE and many
other NEs unreachable from the management center. For example,
Area Ad-
dress
(from 1 - 13
bytes in
length)
System/Node ID
(always 6 bytes in length)
Selector Field
(SEL) (always
of 1 byte in
length)
49 00 01 Tellabs use the NEs MAC address as the Sys-
tem/Node ID of the NE. Each master module is
given its own unique MAC address during pro-
duction (see Where to find the unique MAC ad-
dress of an NE on page 113).
01
Example:
49 00 01 00 A0 82 10 01 0A 01
The first three bytes of
the System/Node ID
are unique to all Tellabs
equipment.
The following three
bytes are unique to the
specific piece of equip-
ment produced by Tel-
labs
All Tellabs

7 Write the new NSAP address in your records.
If this address is not recorded, or if it is recorded incorrectly, it may
be necessary to read it directly from the NE using a local craft termi-
nal.
8 This step is valid only for NEs that support IP DCN management.
For example, Tellabs 6345 FP3.1 or higher and Tellabs 6350 FP3.1 or
higher, only.
If this NE uses CLNS tunnels, contains an ETEX module or you want
to use IP DCN instead of OSI DCN, you must do the following:
a) If you want to manage the NE via IP DCN, select Enable IP Ac-
cess to Node.
b) If IP traffic destined for a CLNS tunnel is arriving on the manage-
ment port, select Enable Management Ethernet Port for IP Traffic.
c) If you have selected one or both of the options in the steps above,
type in the IP address for the management port and the correct
subnet values for the network in the IP Address field and Subnet
Mask field, respectively.
d) If there is a router between your management port and the net-
work management system, in the Default Gateway field type in the
IP address of the gateway to access the management system.
9 This step is valid only for NEs that support IP DCN management.
Decide how you want the network manager and/or extended craft
terminal to communicate with the NE.
In the Registered Address Type in Manager group box, select one of
the following:
NSAP - this address is used by the management system to com-
municate with the NE.
IP - this address is used by the management system to communi-
cate with the NE.
10 Click OK.
Warning: The new NSAP address is sent to the NE. However, a Reset
NE operation must be performed before the new NSAP address re-
places the old one in the NE.

4.7 IP Address
Overview In order that each Tellabs 6315 node, ETEX mapping module or ETEX switch-
ing and mapping module can be uniquely identified, Tellabs 6315 nodes,
ETEX mapping modules and ETEX switching and mapping modules are iden-
tified by their unique IP address. This address makes it possible for the Tellabs
6300 Craft Terminal to communicate directly with, and therefore manage, the
ETEX mapping module or ETEX switching and mapping module in question.
For more information about IP addresses, see [15]. The following is described:
4.7.1 Description of the IP Address on page 117
4.7.2 Configuring an IP Address on page 117
4.7.1 Description of the IP Address
Internet Protocol (IP)
address
The IP address is an identifier that is 4 bytes long. The IP address is written
with dots between each byte, which is in the form a.b.c.d, for example
129.25.4.112. IP addresses are assigned by Internet Service Providers and re-
served on a world-wide basis.
4.7.2 Configuring an IP Address
Introduction The following is described:
To configure the IP address for ETEX mapping modules or ETEX switch-
ing and mapping modules that are installed in Tellabs 6310 nodes or Tel-
labs 6320 nodes on page 117

5.3.3 Assigning New Software to Run in the NE
What happens when a
software file is assigned
to run?
When new software has been downloaded to an NE, it must be assigned to
run before it is taken into use by the NE. Normally the files downloaded to the
NE are .zip files. When a .zip file is selected and set to run, the file is unzipped
and the NE is rebooted before the new file runs in the NE. Rebooting of the NE
always takes place before a new file of any type is taken into use.
Note: When new embedded software has been taken into use by an NE, you
must always make a backup of the NE afterwards See 5.1.1 Making a
Backup of the Configuration of an NE on page 131.

Element group box.
The file(s) are highlighted and the Upload from NE button becomes

5.3.4 Assigning New Firmware to Run in the NE after the Next Reset
What happens when a
firmware file is assigned
to run?
When new firmware has been downloaded to an NE it must be assigned to
run, before it is taken into use by the NE. Normally the files downloaded to
the NE are .zip files. When a .zip file is selected and set to run, the file is un-
zipped and made ready to run, but it is necessary to perform a power reset of
the NE before a new file is taken into use.
8 To make sure that the craft terminal can still communicate with the
NE after the upgrade, do one of the following:
For the Tellabs 6300 Extended Craft Terminal, close all the win-
dows for the NE and then change the NE version, if necessary.
For the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal, close the application and
then reconnect to the NE.
The next time you use the craft terminal to manage the NE, the cor-
rect version of the NE is identified.

Cable trace identifiers
(CTIs)
When the inter-subrack cables between main and tributary subrack NEs are
connected to the equipment, cable trace identifiers (CTIs) can be configured
manually when using a Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal.
CTIs are configured for each end of the cables used to connect the main sub-
rack and the tributary subracks (that is to say, a CTI number is defined for
each iSTM-4 interface). CTIs are used to identify the cable connections and to
protect against misconnections. The usage and the concept of CTIs are very
similar to TTIs (trail trace identifiers). Each iSTM-4 interface transmits a CTI.
This is received by the iSTM-4 interface at the other end of the cable. The re-
ceived CTI is compared to the CTI that the interface expects to receive. Any
mismatch between the expected and the received CTI will result in generation
of an alarm.
To configure and/or view
the inter-subrack cabling
between NEs in a cluster
This procedure describes how you use a Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal to con-
figure and/or view the cabling between the subracks of the NEs in a cluster.
It is a prerequisite that the cables are connected in the physical equipment be-
fore you perform the procedure.
Note: This procedure is not valid for the Tellabs 6300 Extended Craft Termi-
nal. Instead use the Cluster View window, which is described in the rel-
evant NE management documentation.
Note: This procedure must be completed on both the main subrack NE and
the tributary subrack NE before it is operational.

7.5 Copy NE Lists from One Extended Craft Terminal to a Second
Extended Craft Terminal
Purpose It is possible to copy a list of NEs that are already created in one extended craft
terminal to another extended craft terminal. This means that if you want to use
more than one extended craft terminal to manage the NEs, you need only to
type in the NSAP addresses, or IP addresses, of the NEs once.
To copy a list of NEs from an extended craft terminal you are required to ex-
port the information to a text file. This text file is then able to be imported into
another extended craft terminal.
To export NE data from
an extended craft
terminal
When you have created a list of NEs in an extended craft terminal, you can ex-

Showing NE with many
racks
When the Equipment View window is opened initially, all racks and subracks
are visible and no scroll bars are used. If the IDs of the actual and expected
rack or subrack are different, two racks or subracks will be shown, one with
each ID.
If the amount of equipment causes the objects inside the subracks to be too
small to be shown individually, the objects are hidden, and the subracks ap-
pear as single components. To see the details of the equipment, you can use
the zoom function or open separate rack and subrack views.
Showing actual and
expected modules
As illustrated in the figure, the graphical representation of modules allows
you to easily distinguish between actual and expected equipment.
Modules that are both actually present and expected, are shown as lifelike
modules with an indication of module type and slot position.
Tool tips When the cursor floats over a section of the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal, a tool
tip appears. The tool tip gives information about the location and state of a
network element, rack, subrack, cable, protection unit or module. When you
select the particular section, the information that appears in the tool tip also
appears in the status bar.

subrack level or module level). For example, when you are at the module lev-
el, pressing an arrow key moves you from one module to the next. If you use
the arrow keys in combination with Alt, the movement is limited to the parent
of the current object type.
Page Up and Page Down are used to move between levels. For example, when
a module is selected, pressing Page Up will select the subrack that contains the
module.
Scrolling in the
equipment view area
When scroll bars are present in the equipment view area (because of zoom-
ing), the visible area will scroll automatically during selection with the tabu-
lator key or with the arrow keys, to ensure that the selected object is visible.
You can also scroll the view by using the control key (Ctrl) and the arrow keys.

Using the arrows to
select
You can also navigate between the NE, racks, subracks, slots, modules, con-
nectors and protection arrows using the arrow keys (alone or in combination
with Alt) and Page Up and Page Down.
The arrow keys are used to move the selection at a specific level (rack level,
subrack level or module level). For example, when you are at the module lev-
el, pressing an arrow key moves you from one module to the next. If you use
the arrow keys in combination with Alt, the movement is limited to the parent
of the current object type.
Page Up and Page Down are used to move between levels. For example, when
a module is selected, pressing Page Up will select the subrack that contains the
module.
Scrolling in the
equipment view area
When scroll bars are present in the equipment view area (because of zoom-
ing), the visible area will scroll automatically during selection with the tabu-
lator key or with the arrow keys, to ensure that the selected object is visible.
You can also scroll the view by using the control key (Ctrl) and the arrow keys.

modules with an indication of module type and slot position. The alarm state
is also represented in the view. Modules that are actually present but not ex-
pected, are transparent. Modules that are expected but not present send a crit-
ical alarm.
Tool tips When the cursor floats over a section of the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal, a tool
tip appears. The tool tip gives information about the location and state of a
network element, rack, subrack, cable, protection unit or module. When you

Activating a selected
object
When a specific object (NE, rack, subrack, slot module, connector or protec-
tion arrow) is selected in the equipment view area, you can manage the object
either via the relevant main menu, via the objects own pop-up menu, or by
double-clicking on the object or pressing Enter.
When you double-click or press Enter, the default action for the selected object
is activated. The default action is the first enabled action in the objects pop-
up menu.
Using the tabulator to
select
Using the tabulator key (Tab), you can select the objects in the equipment view
area in the following order:
Network element
First rack
First subrack in first rack
Connectors in subrack
Slots/Modules in subrack
Protection arrows in subrack
Next subrack in first rack (and then its contents, as described above)
All following subracks in first rack and their contents
Next rack (and then its contents, as described above)
All following racks and their contents
By using Shift+Tab, you can navigate backwards in the object hierarchy.
Using the arrows to
select
You can also navigate between the NE, racks, subracks, slots, modules, con-
nectors and protection arrows using the arrow keys (alone or in combination
with Alt) and Page Up and Page Down.
The arrow keys are used to move the selection at a specific level (rack level,
subrack level or module level). For example, when you are at the subrack lev-
el, pressing an arrow key moves you from one subrack to the next. If you use
the arrow keys in combination with Alt, the movement is limited to the parent
of the current object type (that is, you will not be able to go across rack bound-
aries when navigating at the subrack level, or go across rack and subrack
boundaries when navigating at the module level).
Page Up and Page Down are used to move between levels. For example, when
a module is selected, pressing Page Up will select the subrack that contains the
module.
Scrolling in the
equipment view area
When scroll bars are present in the equipment view area (because of zoom-
ing), the visible area will scroll automatically during selection with the tabu-
lator key or with the arrow keys, to ensure that the selected object is visible.
You can also scroll the view by using the control key (Ctrl) and the arrow keys.

When the Equipment View window is opened initially, all racks and subracks
are visible and no scroll bars are used. If the IDs of the actual and expected
rack or subrack are different, two racks or subracks will be shown, one with
each ID.
If the amount of equipment causes the objects inside the subracks to be too
small to be shown individually, the objects are hidden, and the subracks ap-
pear as single components. To see the details of the equipment, you can use
the zoom function or open separate rack and subrack views (see 15.4 Rack
and Subrack Views on page 274).

Module and slot pop-up
menus
The pop-up menu for a module or a slot in the Equipment View window con-
tains the same menu items as the Module menu (see Module menu on page
282). However, the pop-up menu for the TIP module contains only the Current
Alarms menu item.
Protection arrow pop-up
menu
The pop-up menu for a protection arrow in the Equipment View window con-
tains the same menu items as the Protection menu (see Protection menu on
page 283).
16.2.4 Inside the Equipment View Area
Showing NE with many
racks
When the Equipment View window is opened initially, all racks and subracks
are visible and no scroll bars are used. If the IDs of the actual and expected
rack or subrack are different, two racks or subracks will be shown, one with
each ID.
If the amount of equipment causes the objects inside the subracks to be too
small to be shown individually, the objects are hidden, and the subracks ap-
pear as single components. To see the details of the equipment, you can use
the zoom function or open separate rack and subrack views (see 16.4 Rack
and Subrack Views on page 288).
Showing actual and
expected modules
As illustrated in the figure, the graphical representation of modules allows
you to easily distinguish between actual and expected equipment.
Modules that are both actually present and expected, are shown as lifelike
modules with an indication of module type and slot position. Modules that
are actually present but not expected, are transparent.
Tool tips When the cursor floats over a section of the Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal, a tool
tip appears. The tool tip gives information about the location and state of a
MA336 Rev. M1 287

network element, rack, subrack, cable, protection unit or module. When you
select the particular section, the information that appears in the tool tip also
appears in the status bar.
16.3 Operating in the Equipment View Window
Activating a selected
object
When a specific object (NE, rack, subrack, slot module, connector or protec-
tion arrow) is selected in the equipment view area, you can manage the object
either via the relevant main menu, via the objects own pop-up menu, or by
double-clicking on the object or pressing Enter.
When you double-click or press Enter, the default action for the selected object
is activated. The default action is the first enabled action in the objects pop-
up menu.
Using the tabulator to
select
Using the tabulator key (Tab), you can select the objects in the equipment view
area in the following order:
Network element
First rack
First subrack in first rack
Connectors in subrack
Slots/Modules in subrack
Protection arrows in subrack
Next subrack in first rack (and then its contents, as described above)
All following subracks in first rack and their contents

All following racks and their contents
By using Shift+Tab, you can navigate backwards in the object hierarchy.
Using the arrows to
select
You can also navigate between the NE, racks, subracks, slots, modules, con-
nectors and protection arrows using the arrow keys (alone or in combination
with Alt) and Page Up and Page Down.
The arrow keys are used to move the selection at a specific level (rack level,
subrack level or module level). For example, when you are at the subrack lev-
el, pressing an arrow key moves you from one subrack to the next. If you use
the arrow keys in combination with Alt, the movement is limited to the parent
of the current object type (that is, you will not be able to go across rack bound-
aries when navigating at the subrack level, or go across rack and subrack
boundaries when navigating at the module level).
Page Up and Page Down are used to move between levels. For example, when
a module is selected, pressing Page Up will select the subrack that contains the
module.
Scrolling in the
equipment view area
When scroll bars are present in the equipment view area (because of zoom-
ing), the visible area will scroll automatically during selection with the tabu-
lator key or with the arrow keys, to ensure that the selected object is visible.
You can also scroll the view by using the control key (Ctrl) and the arrow keys.
16.4 Rack and Subrack Views
Looking at a single rack Instead of looking at the whole NE with all of its racks, subracks and modules,
you can focus on a single rack and its contents. This is done in the rack view,
which is opened via the menu item Rack View in the pop-up menu for the rel-
evant rack
The Rack View window is very similar to the Equipment View window, but
does not contain the menus and so on related to the whole NE.

ues present in the NE are aligned with those values saved on the server. If ac-
cess to a network management server is not present, for example when using
a Tellabs 6300 craft terminal, then the values in the NE are aligned with values
that are saved locally on the PC.

A Quality of Service and AFC Profiles
Overview Tellabs 6300 Extended Craft Terminal uses bandwidth profiles and AFC pro-
files in the management of Ethernet traffic and quality of service (QoS). The
bandwidth profiles define a set of bandwidth classes for the individual AFC
profile. The following topics describe how to configure bandwidth profiles,
AFC profiles and the other elements used for QoS:
Note: Using Tellabs 6300 Craft Terminal, it is only possible to use the Save
and Load functions. Although you are able to view all windows, you
cannot change any of the QoS settings.

guaranteed. The bandwidth classes are grouped according to the following
types:
Note: Different bandwidth classes are already available by default.
Note: CIR classes are used when Fixed is selected in Queue Scheduling. PIR
classes are used when Free is selected. CIR + PIR classes are used when
both Fixed and Free are selected. See A.3 Configuring and Viewing
Queue Scheduling on page 312.
Bandwidth Type Description
CIR This type of bandwidth is always available to the
traffic.
PIR This type of bandwidth is only available when
unused bandwidth (not used by CIR) is available.
CIR + PIR This type of bandwidth guarantees a specified
amount of bandwidth. If additional bandwidth is
required, then the available additional band-
width is shared between the traffic using PIR.

sists of an ID, a label and a priority mapping table. The priority mapping table
contains 8 different priorities each associated with a queue number and a drop
precedence level. When you create an LSP that spans several network ele-
ments, the same AFC profile must be selected in all network elements. This
means that the definition of AFC profiles is a network-wide operation and not
a network element specific issue.
The set of default AFC profiles consists of 6 AFC profiles, where 5 of the pro-
files map to only one queue each and therefore 4 have the same names as the
relevant queue (see Queue scheduling on page 312) and DCN (Data with
Burst) uses Business Data with Burst. The last default AFC profile (Multi Ser-
