Introduction

1.2

Overview of the multiservice access platform R8B

1.2.1

The UMUX platform


The UMUX platform offers a range of compact, flexible, migration capable and managed systems,
offering unequalled multi-service & multi-transmission capability.
The services supported by UMUX range from traditional telephony, broadband Internet access and
private circuits to new services such as broadband Ethernet Private Lines / LANs, Triple Play and
Voice over Packet.
The UMUX Multiservice Access Platform is composed of the following components:
Network elements (with units)
Desktops (remote units)
Management Systems

1.2.2

Network elements and units


UMUX is available in 3 subrack versions, UMUX 1500, UMUX 1200 and UMUX 900. Each version
is particularly suited for a range of applications and the corresponding installation requirements
while the system features remain the same. Each subrack uses the same units (release of the unit
for the UMUX type provided).

1.2.3

Traffic services and interfaces


The UMUX/ UCST R8B platform with Service Pack 02 supports traffic types as follows:
PDH traffic
The UMUX can multiplex and cross connect both P0-nc and P12x traffic. The cross connect capacity is in total 128 x 2 Mbit/s (for signals with and without signalling) for the UMUX 1500. The
practically used capacity with the UMUX 1200 and especially the UMUX 900 is well below this
capacity because of the reduced number of slots available for traffic units in the UMUX 1200
and UMUX 900 subracks.
The cross-connect handles structured and unstructured P12 traffic signals for transparent cross
connecting. Structured P12s signals with or without signalling are either switched transparently
or de-multiplexed and switched as P0-nc traffic signals.

Release Note UMUX & UCST R8B SP02 and related functions

EN/LZTBU 980 415/512 RA

Introduction
Various traffic units allow the UMUX to connect a big variety of traffic signal types from PSTN,
ISDN-BA and standard data services up to V5 and IP services (IP over PDH).
SDH traffic
The UMUX provides STM-4 and STM-1 interfaces which allow you to groom E12/P12, E31/32
and IP (Ethernet) tributary traffic for SDH transmission. The UMUX provides electrical STM-1
and optical STM-4/1 interfaces for the aggregate traffic. It is possible to directly connect VC-12
and VC-3 traffic between 2 STM-1 aggregate interfaces and up to VC-4 traffic between the
STM-4 interfaces.
The units with STM-4 and STM-1 aggregate interfaces provide the SETS timing function for the
UMUX.
To cope with the tributary traffic, the UMUX provides units with P12 or E12 interfaces for internal and external tributaries and an E31/32 interface for external tributaries. A further unit with an
optical STM-1 tributary interface handles high volume tributary traffic for the STM-1 aggregate
interfaces.
IP traffic
The UMUX provides various units and desktop units with local and remote Ethernet interfaces.
Traffic units with bridging and routing capabilities are available for the processing of IP traffic
between remote interfaces (desktops) and the internal PDH traffic structures.
The processing of IP traffic not only includes routing and bridging but allows for Ethernet over
SDH applications (VLAN) and includes Voice over IP for Access Gateway applications with
NGN.
ATM traffic
With the ABUS traffic units, it is possible to implement an ATM core for various services in the
UMUX. The UMUX supports ATM as follows:

STM-1 optical interface for the transmission of ATM cells (in VC-4) in the ATM network
(ATM-UNI).
The STM-1 (ATM) interface supports
- 149760 kbit/s corresponding to 353207 cells/s.
- Multiplex Section protection
IMA (Inverse Multiplexing of ATM) for the transmission of ATM cells via a set of P12s
(P0-nc) TDM links.
An IMA group supports from 2 up to 16 links, each link with a bandwidth of 1920 kbit/s
(4528 cells/s).
ADSL and SHDSL modem interfaces for the transmission of ATM cells and the access to
remote CPE (IAD) with PSTN and ISDN-BA user ports.
- The ADSL interface supports transmission rates as follows
- Upstream:
32 kbit/s 1024 kbit/s
- Downstream:
32 kbit/s 8064 kbit/s
-

The SHDSL interface supports transmission rates (up-/downstream) as follows


- 1 pair:
200 kbit/s 2320 kbit/s

Introduction
in the ATM network. CES includes various synchronisation modes depending on the connection modes on the PBUS
- Adaptive or SRTS for transparent or monitored P12 cross connection
- Synchronous, SRTS or adaptive for terminated or clock master P12 cross
connection modes
The UMUX builds its ATM core with dedicated ATM traffic units around the ABUS. The ABUS is
physically identical with the SBUS. However, the traffic signal structure of the ABUS uses cells
instead of the SDH frames on the SBUS. The ABUS transports the cells from one connection
point to another connection point.
The transport rate of the ABUS for ATM cells is 1215 kcells/s. This is equivalent to a bit rate of
515160 kbit/s (53 bytes per cell).
Depending on the implemented units, the ATM core uses SETS or PETS for system and unit
timing purposes.
V5.x services
The V5.x options of the UMUX allow you resolve the V5.1 and V5.2 protocol in the UMUX
1500/1200 and to connect local and remote PSTN and ISDN-BA user ports in the UMUX network. The UMUX supports user port access via PDH.
The UCST provides custom parameter sets which allow fast installation and uniform commissioning of new V5 units in the UMUX network. The custom parameter set defines parameters
for the V5.x protocol implementation as well as traffic related parameters.
NGN services
Telephony NGN (New Generation Network) provides telephony services to legacy terminals
such as analogue and ISDN phones that are not NGN capable. With telephony NGN, the telecommunication network has distributed switching functionality which is separated from the control mechanism. The UMUX provides the Access Gateway functionality for telephony NGNs.
The UMUX and its units support functions for NGN as follows:

Processing of the user port signalling and circuit set-up/release and exchanging of corresponding messages via IP traffic with its MGC (Media Gateway Controller). This includes
Conversion of analogue telephone traffic into IP traffic (RTP) and vice versa
POTS: H.248 / MEGACO (ITU-T, H.248.v1) for PSTN signalling conversion from/into
H.248 messages.
POTS and ISDN BA: H.248 / MEGACO for setting up / tearing down the connection between a TDM based voice channel and an IP based channel.

ISDN BA: Signalling gateway for the transport of D-channel frames between the Access
Gateway and the ASP (Application Server Process) using SIGTRAN (IUA/SCTP).

Introduction

Support of Customer Parameter Sets for commissioning of soft switch interoperability

Provisioning of POTS and ISDN-BA user ports (local and remote)

IP DSLAM with real Broadband Triple Play services


The UMUX supports a modular IP DSLAM implementation with the IPLM1/2/4 units which have
24 ADSL/ADSL2(+) and the IPLM6 unit has 24 G:SHDSL/G.SHDSL.bis interfaces and provide
the interworking functions for the termination of the ATM layer and adaptation of the Ethernet
traffic for IP services. IPLM unit versions support ADSL over POTS (IPLM1/2) and ISDN-BA
(IPLM4). With the new IPLM units the UMUX supports triple play services as follows:

Broadband internet access


(TV) Multicasting and video on demand
Voice over IP
Access:
ADSL/ADSL2(+) loop access to the residential gateway (CPE)
G.SHDSL/G.SHDSL.bis loop access to the residential gateway (CPE)
Gbit-Ethernet uplink for the access to the service provider

It is possible to cascade several units for the implementation of IP DSLAMS with n x 24 ADSL /
ADSL2(+) or G.SHDSL / G.SHDSL.bis interfaces with a common uplink. The UCST supports
the management of the basic unit functions and management access of the DSLAM unit. A
dedicated CLI also launched via UCST - allows for the configuration of the DSLAM parameters and the DSLAM fault management.
The high density of the IP DSLAM interfaces on the units and the corresponding power dissipation require imperatively forced ventilation for the UMUX subrack.
1.2.4

Remote units and services


The UMUX Multiservice Access Platform includes a set of desktop units for the remote installation
(customer premises) which allow the deployment of remote traffic interfaces and services. The remote units have electrical (xDSL) interfaces for the data transmission with the UMUX NEs. Some
of the desktop units operate in standalone applications as well.
The desktop units (xDSL transmission) provide remote interfaces for
PDH traffic with various interfaces (G.703, V<xx> , X<xx> interface series)
Ethernet traffic
Desktop units with Ethernet traffic interfaces include additional traffic functions for IP traffic
processing (e.g. bridging, routing).

EN/LZTBU 980 415/512 RA

Introduction
PSTN and ISDN interfaces
Desktop units with PSTN and ISDN interfaces can provide user ports for V5 and NGN applications.
A desktop unit for optical 8 Mbit/s transmission with 4 x 2 Mbit/s G.703 or V.11 traffic interfaces
completes the remotes units of the UMUX multiservice platform.
Remote units connected to the UMUX are fully managed by the UMUX management system.
1.2.5

Management tools and interfaces

1.2.5.1

Management software
The UMUX Multiservice Access Platform has two management toots:
UCST
The UCST is recommended for the management of single UMUXs or small UMUX networks.
The UCST runs on an ordinary PC/notebooks under Windows operating systems as specified
in the paragraph PC / OS requirements on page 80.
UNEM
The UNEM is comprehensive management software managing network elements and networks. It is suited for medium to large sized UMUX networks. The UNEM has a modular architecture which allows distributed and scalable installations. Operation control and NE access
have multi-session capabilities, while the UNEM core manages one central database and all the
north bound interfaces.
The UNEM runs on PCs with Linux (Red Hat Enterprise) and HP workstations with UNIX (HPUX 11i) operating systems as specified in the applicable UNEM release note.

1.2.5.2

Management interfaces
The UMUX features local interfaces for NE management and the ECC (Embedded Communication
Channel) functionality for remote management with the UCST and UNEM:
The ECC is a high performance in-band channel, which allows the implementation of versatile inband MCN (Management Communication Networks) for the management of the UMUX 1500,
UMUX 1200 and UMUX 900 networks. The ECC functionality includes OSPF routing for the UMUX
management traffic in the NEs and the transport of the ECC over SDH (OSI tunnelling) and ATM
(ECC over ATM) networks.
The UMUX supports interfaces for management communication as follows

Page 10 of 129

Release Note UMUX & UCST R8B SP02 and related functions

EN/LZTBU 980 415/512 RA

Introduction
External management interfaces for local NE access
The QX-interface is an Ethernet interface (10BaseT) for management access via LANs.
The F-interface is a serial interface (RS 232) and is functionally compatible to the corresponding interface of the legacy UMUX 1100(E) and UMUX 1300.
The Q1-interfaces is a serial bus interface (RS 485)
All the UMUX support the Q1-(slave) interface which is functionally compatible to the corresponding interface of the legacy UMUX 1100(E) and UMUX 1300.
The UMUX 1500 and UMUX 1200 provide the Q1-master interfaces which allows you to subtend legacy UMUX for NE management via the Q-bus. The Q1-master interface provides a
remote replication of the UCST / UNEM Q-bus access via the ECC DCN.
Internal management interfaces
The router of the control unit supports up to 32 ECC interfaces which internally connect to

ECC transported in standard PDH channels (normally embedded in P12 as P0-nc traffic) in
the PDH network.

ECC transported in the SOH (Section Overhead) of the STM-1 frame in SDH networks. In
open SDH networks these ECC require encapsulation in the OSI stack which is used in SDH
networks for management communication. This functionality is implemented on the control
unit.

ECC transported via ATM networks. This requires the encapsulation of the ECC in ATM cells.
This functionality is implemented on the units with the ATM UNI. (STM-1, IMA).

For compatibility with legacy UMUX, the UMUX 1500 and UMUX 1200 can connect via the SIFOX
unit to the EOC (Embedded Operation Channel). The EOC provides the management communication network for the legacy UMUX 1300 and UMUX 1100(E).
Because of its low throughput and the use of dedicated units, the EOC is not suited for the management communication of the current UMUX systems.

Signal layers
The UCST uses unified names for traffic signal layers according to the ETSI nomenclature (if applicable). The UCST and UNEM use the same terms for the same things.

New content
Functionality

This paragraph describes the new functionality of the UMUX and UMUX units.
For details of hardware, ESW and a short list of features please refer to chapter 4: Summary of units.
2.1.1

R8B SP01
SYN4E
The platform R8B introduces the new SYN4E function unit, which is released with the R8B
SP01 for general deployment.
The SYN4E 610 unit provides 2 STM-4/1 and 2 STM-1 SFP based interfaces. The STM-1 interfaces support SPF modules with optical or electrical STM-1 interfaces. The STM-4 interfaces
support SFP modules for optical transmission. A local cross connect allows for the cross connection of VC-12, VC-3 and VC-4 traffic between the local STM-x interfaces. For the traffic access to other traffic units in the UMUX subrack the SYN4E.provides also access to the SBUS
and to the PBUS for locally terminated SDH traffic. The SYN4E unit implements also the SETS
function for the NE.
Beside the SDH interfaces, SYN4E offers also four electrical 10/100/1000BASE-T interfaces.
The SYN4E handles the encapsulation of the tributary Ethernet traffic into the SDH signals (VC12, VC-3 and VC-4).
Please note that the operation of the SYN4E requires a COBU<X> with R5 ESW (R5H).

2.1.2

R8B SP02

2.1.2.1

NEMSG
The platform R8B with the Service Pack 02 introduces the new NEMSG function unit.

Page 14 of 129

Release Note UMUX & UCST R8B SP02 and related functions

EN/LZTBU 980 415/512 RA

Functions and systems

KEYMILE AG

The NEMSG unit has just like the NEMCA / NEMGE eight E&M voice and signalling interfaces. In
addition to this, the NEMSG provides conference circuits allowing the combination of voice and signalling information of up to 17 participants per conference. The NEMSG also supports P0 data
conferences.
These enhancements make the NEMSG unit even fitter to address multipoint network scenarios in
utilities and private networks. NEMSG is not only able to address new network topologies but offers also an easier user interface to configure these functions. The functionalities of NEMSG include:

8 E&M interfaces with 2-wire or 4-wire voice interface


2 signalling interfaces per voice channel
Support of the E&M signalling interface types I to V
Support of different network topologies (point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, multipoint-tomultipoint)
8 conference circuits with up to 17 participants per conference, maximum 32 participants per
NEMSG unit
Equipment protection with slot switching
Simulation of channel failure for debugging or decoupling of a faulty slave
Unit reset button in GUI
Using the new UCST wizard, point-to-multipoint and multipoint-to-multipoint network topologies
with Shared Protection Ring can be easily configured

The NEMSG is a functional replacement for the NEMCA / NEMGE units and adds with its conference features substantial new functionality to the UMUX.

2.1.2.2

NEBRE
The platform R8B with the Service Pack 02 introduces the new NEBRE function unit.
Ethernet based business services are a growing need for public and private network operators.
The UMUX module NEBRE brings wire-speed switching into the UMUX platform to address high
speed Ethernet services. The NEBRE is ideal for bandwidth intensive applications like corporate
internet access, LAN interconnections and VPNs (Virtual Private Networks). The NEBRE offers six
Ethernet interfaces to connect your customers: 4 x 10/100Base-T and 2 x SFP cages for 100BaseFX or Gigabit Ethernet. When used in conjunction with the STM-4 unit SYN4E in the UMUX, the
NEBRE allows high flexibility in the range of Ethernet services plus the carrier grade reliability of
SDH transport.

Release Note UMUX & UCST R8B SP02 and related functions

EN/LZTBU 980 415/512 RA

Functions and systems

KEYMILE AG

The NEBRE is a functional replacement for the existing ETHUB unit of the UMUX. In addition to a
significantly superior Ethernet switching function, the NEBRE is also a managed solution under the
umbrella of the UCST/UNEM system.
Compatibility of the NEBRE
Control units:
The NEBRE unit requires COBUX R3 at least. If equipment protection for the NEMSG shall be
implemented, both the COBUX ESW and the COBUX template must be R5 or higher.

2.1.2.3

DATA<X> R3
The platform R8B with the Service Pack 02 introduces the R3 of the DATA<X> function units which
provide substantial feature enhancements with respect to the DATA<X> R2. The new features are:
Direct encapsulation of the DATA<X> Ethernet traffic for the transport via HDLC to DTM (without PPP encapsulation)
Point-to-multipoint (P2MP) and multipoint-to-multipoint (MP2MP) connectivity between stations
in linear networks with SPRING (Shared Protection Ring) topology.
The table below gives a synoptical overview of the full DATA<X> R3 feature set and the supported
data rates and interfaces respectively.

Compatibility of the DATA<X> R3


Hardware and features:
The DATA<X> R1A and R1B hardware do not support P2MP/I with subrates. The support of
this feature requires a DATA<X> R3 hardware. All other features are fully supported with the
R1A and R1B DATA<X> hardware.
Hardware and ESW:
The embedded DATA<X> ESW versions R1A, R2A, R2B and R3A support all the DATA<X>
hardware versions R1A (HW key x02), R1B (HW key x02) and R3A (HW key x03) with one exception:
The hardware R3A (HW key x03) and ESW R1A are not compatible.
Control units:
The DATA<X> R3 requires COBUX ESW R5 and COBUX templates R4 at least. If equipment
protection for the DATA<X> shall be implemented, both the COBUX ESW and the COBUX template must be R5 or higher.

DUPI4 dual power unit for the redundant power supply of the UMUX 1500 subrack R2. The
DUPI4 is mechanically integrated into the UMUX 1500 subrack R2 (functional supervision via
the COBU<X> interfaces for external alarms).
FANU5 fan unit for forced subrack ventilation. The FANU5 is mechanically and functionally independent of the UMUX 1500 subrack (functional supervision via the COBU<X> interfaces for
external alarms).
Special Units without or limited access to the UMUX internal traffic bus structures.
Among other units these are the ALCAR, ETHUB, IPLM<x>, LECAF, MAGIC, MAGI8 and
TUNOF.
Simultaneous operation of its 2 ABUS/SBUS Sectors.
The 2 ABUS/SBUS sectors of the UMUX 1500 constitute one logical SETS system (SETS is a
NE level function). The physical SETS systems in the 2 sectors run synchronously. The SETS
system of one of the sectors is the leading Prime SETS Sector and the other sector is the
slave Agent SETS Sector. The Prime SETS Sector provides all the SETS functions and the
ESO-4 signal. The Agent SETS Sector just synchronises to the output signal of the Prime
SETG to create a synchronous signal for its sector.
It is not possible to protect the Prime SETS Sector with the Agent SETS Sector.
The sector with the first configured unit with SETS (SYN4E, SYNUF, SYNI<X>, ATIOP) becomes automatically the Prime SETS Sector.

UMUX 1200

3.2.1

Features

KEYMILE AG

The UMUX 1200 is designed for stand alone installation while still supporting 19-inch and ETSI
rack installations. It operates from standard DC power supply and provides power supply options
for AC mains power supply with battery backup. The UMUX 1200 has a dual subrack power supply
option and fan (internal fan unit) option. Forced ventilation of the UMUX subrack is mandatory for
the operation of some traffic units and for the IP DSLAM functionality. The fan unit is imperatively
required if the UMUX 1200 is operated horizontally (rack installation).
The UMUX 1200 subrack R2 with the FANU2 R2 fan unit (option) has a power capacity of up to
10 A with up to 480 Watt of power dissipation. Please not that the power capacity with the AC powering option is restricted to 2.8 A / 140 Watt.
The UMUX 1200 can be used to interface the UMUX Access Network to a Backbone Network. This
implies the ability to
terminate high capacity aggregate signals (STM-1 ATM, STM-4/1 SDH) down to 64 kbit/s circuits
provide physical user service interfaces (POTS, ISDN, data leased lines, IP traffic)
provide transmission capability to remote systems over optical fibre and copper cables (xDSL
transmission interfaces).
support UMUX CPE for the remote connection of service interfaces including interfaces for IP
traffic.
The UMUX 1200 has a compact subrack and offers 8 standard slots for traffic, control and power
units
The figure below shows the UMUX 1200 architecture and compatible units.

The UNIDA supports PM only for bit rates 64 kbit/s. For bit rates < 64 kbit/s a workaround
(as described in the Letter of Limitations) is available.
Please note that:
Partial inventory data means that the units only provide a part of the standard information for inventory management.
If the UMUX 1500 implementation of a particular function (unit) goes with functional
restrictions compared to the features quoted in the unit description, the table shows
the limitations.
The tables include the version of the Bootloader software. The inventory function of
the EM can read the data (if applicable).

PC / OS requirements

5.1.1

General
The UCST software (32-bit versions) is released for PC/computers running Microsoft Windows
operating systems as follows:

Windows 2000
Windows XP Professional
Windows Vista Enterprise (32-bit version)
Windows Server 2003

The above list of operating systems is definitive.


Principally, it is also possible to operate the UCST R8B SP02 under Windows Vista
Home Basic. However, some operational restriction applies.
When starting the Communication Manager, the check for running UCST instances
fails. Accordingly, no error is reported if there are running instances and the changes
of the RAS/Modem configuration applied via the Communication Manager are lost
when closing the UCST (instances).
5.1.2

Windows 2000
If your PC/computer runs the Windows 2000 operating system, the PC/computer meets the basic requirements (microprocessor type/speed, RAM, hard disk, CD-ROM drive) to run the UCST
(32-bit versions) software.
For your convenience and a reasonable performance, your desktop or laptop PC/computer should
meet the following additional requirements:

Installation of UCST service packs


The installation of the current Service Pack automatically updates the UCST with the contents of
the previously released Service Packs (if applicable). Thus, with your new Service Pack you do not
need any of the previously released Service Packs.
1.

Login to your PC with administrator rights (if applicable).

2.

Ensure that all running UCST programs and instances are closed.

3.

Run UCST_R8B_SPxx.exe on the CD-ROM containing the UCST Service Pack software.

The Service Pack installation utility searches automatically for the appropriate UCST installation
and guides you through the Service Pack installation process.
The current service pack for UNEM R8B is SP02.
Please note that the upgrade procedure for customer specific UCST versions may differ from the above upgrade description.

Compatibility and upgrades


Support of legacy UMUX
The UMUX network element types
UMUX 1300
UMUX 1100
UMUX 1100E
are basically supported with UMUX / UCST R8 and its service packs.
UNEM R8 under HP-UX still offers serial communication ports (RS232) and therefore supports all
existing management communication networks.
In contrast, UNEM R8 under LINUX does not support serial communication. Legacy UMUXs can
still be reached via terminal servers or via a gateway UMUX 1500 / 1200 / 900. Existing management networks to legacy UMUXs may have to be modified.

Configuration

6.2.1

Compatibility with previous configurations

KEYMILE AG

Rules for compatibility:


The new UCST can read configurations created with earlier UCST versions (UCST R3.3a/1 and
higher) if the configuration describes only units (the template number is not relevant) that are
still supported (this includes obsolete function units).
If the configuration contains units that are not supported anymore with the new UCST, the configuration cannot be read and failure is reported.
In such a case you must eliminate these units with the original UCST version and replace the
unit (if available) with a functional substitute that is supported by the new UCST.
KEYMILE strongly recommends upgrading obsolete units in legacy configurations with current preferred units.
6.2.2

Procedures
Before upgrading (UCST, embedded software, unit templates, configuration), it is of ultimate importance to save the configuration of all affected NEs using the existing (old) UCST. Although not
imperative in all cases of upgrades, this measure will prevent any possible loss of configuration
data.
To upgrade an existing configuration to a configuration with more recent templates and ESW proceed as follows:
Install the new UCST on the PC (that you want to use to upgrade NEs)
Upload the configuration from the NE
(refer to comments on compatibility of configurations above)
Save configuration
(refer to comments above)
Only if applicable: Replace hardware with compatible new unit(s)
Deliver and install new ESW, corresponding to the unit to upgrade (download)
Convert unit to the new template (download)
Update the NE configuration if necessary (download)

Compatibility and upgrades

KEYMILE AG

Please note:
If you want to upgrade and the control unit is affected, the COBU<x> unit must be upgraded in a first step before you upgrade the other units and functions.
In systems with redundant COBU<x> units, the ESW must also be installed in the redundant unit (update redundant unit).
Because of enhanced function implementation in the new UCST, legacy configuration can loose
(depending on the upgrade step) particular configuration information when upgrading.
This applies in particular for
Cross connections of the SDH ECCs via the SDH SOH (MS and RS path overhead)
(Flexible SOH byte use with the UCST R5B and higher)
Cross connections of UBUS units with 1+1 protection
(Unified traffic protection for all units with the UCST R5A and higher)
Special upgrade procedure for the PHLC3
If upgrades affect any of the above functions you must recreate the affected cross connections after the upgrade.

Upgrade process
To the upgrade of your control units in the UMUX NEs to R5 you should always use the current
UCST and the most recent released COBUX ESW version currently the COBUX_R5H ESW.
Please note that the upgrade of control units is crucial. To upgrade proceed as follows:

Install the new UCST on your PC/computer.


Connect the EM to the NE that you want to upgrade.
Load the NE configuration from the NE to the EM (upload).
Save the configuration file (strongly recommended).
Deliver the new COBU<X> R5H ESW. Do not remove old APDSW files from the NE!
Configure the installation of the new ESW for the control unit.
Download this configuration (e.g. via a partial download) to the NE.
Check if the new COBUX ESW is running via the Inventory dialogue (the Software Installation
Status dialogue is only available with the COBU<X> R5).
If the NE has a protecting COBU<X>,
Open the COBU<X> status dialogue (Board tab) and make sure, that the redundant control unit
is synchronised with the active control unit.
To achieve synchronism, you must press the button [Update Redundant Control Unit]. The update can take a couple of minutes, depending on the number of ESW files that are stored in the
active COBU<X> MIB.

Convert the templates of the control unit to the new R5 templates if required (via the NE Configuration Convert Units menu)
Download the configuration with the new templates to the NE
(e.g. via a partial download).
The upgrade of control units is crucial
Never upgrade to a new COBU<X> R5 template unless you have checked that a COBUX
R5 ESW is active on master and slave unit!
Please note that it is
not allowed to downgrade a NE (SW installation of COBUX ESW R1 R4 is not accepted if COBUX R5 ESW (or higher) is running).
no longer possible to manage a NE with UNEM/UCST R5<X> if its COBU<X> has
been upgraded to R5 (both COBUX ESW and COBU<X> template).

KEYMILE AG

However, it is possible to upgrade the COBU<X> ESW to R5 and continue to manage


the COBU<X> R4 templates with the UNEM/UCST R5<X>.
The ATM and NGN functionalities have increased requirements on the capacity of the database
(MIB) of the COBU<X> control unit. The use of the COBU<X> with the 16 MBytes PC memory card
option is highly recommended. However, the 16 MBytes PC memory card option is not generally
required to operate the ATM core or NGN functions. Current COBU<X> units are delivered with 16
MBytes PC memory cards (8 Mbytes cards are no longer available).
Converting the control unit to R5 ESW is a good opportunity to upgrade the capacity of the local
PC memory card(s). For other aspects of PC memory card upgrades, refer also to Support of PC
flash memory cards on page 89.

6.4

Support of PC flash memory cards


The UMUX control units support different brands of PC memory cards. To this end, the control unit
is able to detect the type of the memory card and use the appropriate software driver.
The introduction of new PC memory card products requires an upgrade of the corresponding drivers, which are provided with the APDSW software. The most recent APDSW_R1.C03 (introduced
with the UCST R4C) supports all the PC memory card products used with the UMUX control units.
Running COBUX ESW older than COBUX_R3.B32 is not possible with some of the currently used
PC memory card products. Trying to run such an ESW with these memory cards will create a software installation error. To eliminate this failure, the control unit requires the upgrade of its ESW
and APDSW to remain compatible with all the PC memory card products:
Delivery of the APDSW_R1.C03 to the NE.
Delivery of the COBUX_R5.H02 ESW or a more recent ESW (but at least the COBUX_R3.B32
ESW) to the NE.
Configuration of the new ESW installation for the control unit.
Download of the new configuration, which activates the new ESW.
Please note that
It is always preferable to run the most recent control unit ESW.
The COBUX_R5.F02 is currently the most recent ESW available.
The COBU<X> is delivered with a 16 MBytes PC memory card (8 Mbytes cards are
no longer available).

New unit hardware


Over production time some of the components of the unit hardware are no longer available as
standard components and have been replaced by functionally compatible components and circuits.
Such a replacement provides new hardware for the affected units.
The new unit hardware implies a new hardware key and thus an adaptation of the ESW for compatibility with the new hardware (HW key). The new ESW is backward compatible. You can run the
new ESW on old unit hardware. However, it is not possible to run old ESW on the new unit hardware. The new unit hardware imperatively requires the new ESW versions.
Refer to Summary of units on page 38 for the old and new compatible ESW and, if applicable,
for special entries (Ditto with new HW/ESW) concerning functions with new unit hardware.

6.6

IPSMG conversion
The units IPSMG 705 and 706 are handled as ABUS units, while the IPSMG 707 is an SBUS unit.
Adding of an IPSMG 707 to a bus sector with an already equipped IPSMG 705 or 706, is not
possible. The equipped IPSMG 705 or 706 units must first be converted to IPSMG 707 units.
It is not possible to add an IPSMG 707 unit to a bus sector that already contains ABUS units. If
available, use the second bus sector of the subrack to add the IPSMG 707.

6.7

NE traffic
The standard upgrade procedure can disturb the NE traffic. However, if the upgrade requires the
restart of the COBU<X>, the (UBUS) traffic is shortly interrupted. Upgrades with loss of cross connections create interruptions for the traffic signals.

Upon this order, you will receive the ordered unit hardware and a CD-ROM which contains the
complete collection of the most recent unit software (Embedded Software ESW).
The unit hardware together with compatible unit software (ESW) and your UCST unit template
(configuration file) will create the required function unit.
For refer to Summary of units on page 38 in this release note or in previous release notes if required.

6.8.2

Background information
The UCST unit template (e.g. COBUX 212) is specific for the features and functions of a function
unit as described in the UMUX customer documentation (e.g. UMUX Technical Descriptions Units
COBUX 219, 223, 212, 213 & COBUV 220, 224, 217, 218).
Such a function unit is introduced with a particular UCST & UNEM release and is supported by
subsequent releases of the management software for as long as required. Typically, a function unit
is no longer supported when an updated function unit (with a new UCST unit template) with enhanced features and functions is introduced.
Each new release of an ESW supports all earlier UCST unit templates, provided that it is compatible with the unit hardware. Such an incompatibility is only possible if a new modified hardware version for the function unit replaces previous hardware and this new hardware is more recent than
the locally available ESW (Please note that ESW delivered with the unit hardware is always compatible with this hardware).

Compatibility and upgrades

KEYMILE AG

For registered customers, the most recent ESW is also available for download from KEYMILE's Extranet.
Example:
Assumption:

You operate the COBUX 145 in the NEs of your UMUX network.

The COBUX 145 has been initially introduced with the

UCST & UNEM R4C

COBUX R3D ESW

To order a new compatible COBUX for your NEs, just specify the generic function unit
COBUX-FU with the KM ordering code A24A3651.
With this, you will receive the COBUX hardware (unit) and the most recent COBUX ESW.
The configuration of your NE with the COBUX 145 template and any COBUX ESW equal to or
newer than COBUX R3D will create the COBUX 145 functionality in your NE.

Limitations
Overview
This chapter describes known limitations and deviations from specified system behaviour of the
UMUX/UCST R8B SP02 release. In this document both types are handled under the term limitations.
A limitation can have temporary or permanent significance:
Temporary
Limitations are temporary if it is it is possible to fix them. Typically this type of limitation is due to
deficiencies of the system implementation.
For temporary limitations, a release is specified which clears the limitation. Depending on the
impact of the deficiency and its correction, it is not always possible to precisely schedule such a
release.
Permanent
Limitations are permanent if it is not (reasonably) possible to fix them. Typically this type of limitation is inherent to the system implementation or given by the chip sets used.
If available, KEYMILE provides a workaround to eliminate or reduce the impact of a limitation.

In order to enable the


use of two VLAN tags on
the IPLM uplink, the
IPLM Administrator must
enable the port provider
status on the uplink
bridge port (usually
bridge port 193).
If the IPLM is managed
via the uplink this procedure will disrupt management communications to the IPLM.

Enable port provider status on uplink:


$modify bridge port intf portid 193
status disable
$modify gvrp port info portid 193 ppstatus
enable
$modify bridge port intf portid 193 status
enable

There are two workarounds:


Of the three listed commands, the first
command will disable port 193. As port

ing the IPLM un-reachable

IPLMx

R1B

The administrator will


observe a loss of comms
if the port provider status
is enabled on port 193
and 0x9100 is the TPID.

Issue the following commands while the


TPID is set to 0x9100:
$modify bridge port intf portid 193 status
disable
$modify gvrp port info portid 193 ppstatus
enable
$modify bridge port intf portid 193 status
enable

While the TPID value is 0x9100, and the


listed commands are issued, the IPLM will
no longer be reachable by a PC telnet
session which does not use 0x9100 as the
TPID.

Page 106 of 129

Release Note UMUX & UCST R8B SP02 and related functions

To avoid the loss of comms to


the IPLM, the administrator
should modify the TPID in the
IPLM sizing table to the desired value before enabling
the port provider status.
0x8100 is supported for PC
telnet sessions and therefore
recommended. It is recommended that the following
commands are issued:
$modify nbsize svlanprotocolid

IPLMx not manageable
after change of IP address

After reconfiguration the units did not


respond on the new IP address for
Ethernet in-band management. An ECC
management connection was created in
addition to the in-band on all three units.
All units were accessible over ECC now
and showed (cli command "get ip address"), there was still the former IP address stored in the configuration.

This happens if the uplink port belongs to


a VLAN.

Proceed as follows:
- Set up an extra ECC management channel and log in
to the unit
- Restart the unit with reboot
config default and the
IPLMx starts up with the correct IP address, but without
default gateway
- Remove the ECC management channel in the UCST
menu and perform a partial
download
- Login to the IPLMx from a
local node, which is located
in the same IP subnet and
execute another reboot config default
- The IPLMx starts up with the
correct IP and gateway address

For voice conferences with


distributed conference nodes,
the timeslots in the 2 Mbit/s
links that are used to transport
the voice conference traffic
between the nodes must be in
the TS17 to TS 31, if CAS is

If this slot arrangement is not
possible you must disable
CAS in the 2 Mbit/s links.
