1 INTRODUCTION

VCM Data Unit

The VCM interface unit is an


unframed data interface unit for the
Tellabs 8100 nodes.
The VCM-10T-A/VCM-5T-A unit
accesses unframed user signals at
rates 0.68448 kbit/s.
Difference between 10T and 5T unit
is in interface module support.
VCM supports point-to-point and
point-to-multipoint circuits.

VCM-5T-A

There are two variations of the VCM interface unit, the VCM-5T-A and
VCM-10T-A. The difference between these units is in interface module
support. Two interface modules can be installed on one VCM, supporting two
channel interfaces each, thus one VCM unit can have four physical interfaces.
The unit accesses unframed user signals at rates 0.68448 kbit/s. VCM
supports end-to-end Tellabs proprietary CRC supervision of the user signals
when there are VCMs at the both ends of the circuit.
The VCM-5T-A and VCM-10T-A can be installed in Tellabs 8140 midi nodes,
Tellabs 8150 basic nodes and Tellabs 8160 accelerator nodes A111.

Typical applications for the VCM are termination of point-to-point circuits in


a data processing center, or building links for data multiplexers, PADs,
bridges and routers. VCM is typically used in V.24/V.28, X.21, 64 kbit/s
G.703, V.35, V.36/V.11 interfaces for data connections.

1.2 Interface Modules of VCM Units

VCM Interfaces

The VCM-5T-A version supports V.36-IEC, V.35-IEC,


V.24, X.21, G.703-64, HSSI and LAN interface
modules.
The VCM-10T-A version supports V.35 and V.36
interface modules.
User signals at bit rates below 64 kbps are
rate-adapted according to the V.110/X.30 frame
structure.

The available interface types allow for cable lengths of a few meters. With a
G703-64 interface the cable length can be up to a few hundred meters.

1.3 Interface Parameter Templates

Interface Parameter Templates

The interface parameters for VCM unit are more complicated compared to the
parameters of GMH unit. The easiest way to define the parameters for an
interface is to use templates. The Interface Parameter Templates dialog can be
opened from the Interface Parameters dialog in any unit. The correct template is
selected from the drop-down menu, the template is read and the interface
window is updated. New templates are created using the Create New button in
the Interface Parameter Templates dialog.
