1 Network Configuration Toolj


The Network Configuration Toolj (NetCfgToolj) is an optional application tool for the Pasolink
Network Management System, which provides an easy to use graphical interface in building
NEC PASOLINK networks. It is a powerful tool used to generate configuration files for the
Pasolink Management Cards (PMC) and network connection data files for the Pasolink Network
Management System (PNMS).

1.1 Purpose
This document illustrates the use of the NetCfgToolj. The explanation focuses on the common
functions of the NetCfgToolj and therefore is for general-purpose operational use. Moreover, the
NEC PNMS is also briefly described to provide users with an overall understanding of the NEC
PASOLINK NMS.

2.7 Network Properties: Naming the Individual Networks in a Workspace


Since one workspace can contain a number of networks, the NetCfgToolj allows you to provide
useful names to each of the networks. By default, Network-x, where x is the network number, is
assigned.
To set the network name:

1. Click on Network Æ
Properties from the main
menu or right click anywhere
in the current Network
window to open the
Network Properties window.
2. Enter the desired name for
this workspace/network in
the Network Name box.
3. Click on [OK] button to save
the new setting.

2.8 Network Properties: Network Address and Subnet Setting


The IP addresses assigned by the NetCfgToolj to selected network depend on the assigned
Network Address and Subnet Mask in the Network Properties window.
To set the subnet of the selected network:
1. Click on Network Æ
Properties from the main
menu or right click
anywhere in the current
Network window to open
the Network Properties
window.

2. Click on Subnet category in


the Network Properties
window.
3. By default the NetCfgToolj
will utilize the private
network address 172.18.0.0 with subnet mask 255.255.254.0. This subnet allocates 512
IP addresses to the selected network. You can modify this subnet by selecting the default
subnet and clicking the [Modify] button.
Where the network was initially assigned a smaller subnet, you can add another subnet
when the IP address runs out. Click on [Add] button to assign a new subnet to the
selected network. (NOTE: A maximum number of five network addresses and subnet
mask settings is possible)
** For example, network address 10.10.10.0 with subnet mask 255.255.255.192 was initially
assigned to the selected network. This means only 64 addresses are initially allocated. If
the number of NE’s exceeds 62, a new subnet must be assigned to the network to
allocate new IP addresses for the new NE’s

-8-
ROI-S06695

NOTE: *The maximum number of NE’s per CPMC network is 416 NE’s regardless to
whether more than 416 IP addresses are assigned to the network.
* The maximum number of NE’s per Root NE network is 500.
This number is calculated by following formula.
Maximum number of NE’s per Root NE network
=[Maximum number of subnet per Root NE network] X [Maximum number of
NE’s per subnet]

The ensuing window, Network Address window, allows you to modify the default subnet
by either changing the Network Address or the Subnet mask to be used by the selected
network. You can increase or decrease the allocated IP address on the selected network
by modifying the subnet mask and the network address in this window. (Refer to
Appendix B: Subnets to see the available subnets in the managed network.)
In the example shown below, where the network
address is 172.18.0.64 with subnet mask
255.255.255.192 given to the selected network,
NetCfgToolj will allocate the IP address
172.18.0.65-126 to this network. Note that in this
example 62 IP addresses were assigned.
Another as the network address (172.18.0.64)
and another as the broadcast address
(172.18.0.127). Click on [OK] to save the new subnet.
When the [Add] button was clicked in step.3, the
ensuing window enables you to define another
subnet that will be added to the existing subnet.
Click on [Add] button to save the new subnet.
(NOTE: The maximum number of network
addresses and subnet mask settings that can be
regstered is 5.)

4. Click on [OK] button to save the new settings.


NOTE: Network sizing rule

2.9.4 Back-to-Back Line Color Codes

The NMS back-to-back connection between NE’s varies according to the type of NE’s
connected, speed, synchronization, the port used and the type of protocol used. The
NetCfgToolj uses color-coded lines to allow the network designer to distinguish the various
types of connection.

The following lists the color codes used by the NetCfgToolj to represent the different back-to-
back connection types.
‰ Black: represents the common RS-485/RS-232C/9600bps/ASYNC multi-drop line
between Pasolink, Line Concentrator, MIU and Pasolink-S NE’s.
‰ Red: represents the 64kbps/RS-422/SYNC connections between NE1 and NE1 of
Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+/Pasolink Mx (Bridge NE)/Pasolink+ STM-1 (Bridge NE) /Pasolink+
PDH (Bridge NE) NE’s.
‰ Violet: represents the RS485/19200bps/ASYNC connections NE2 and NE1 of Pasolink

Appendix A: MIU Settings


To view the NE Properties for the individual MIU you have to double click on the CPMC folder of
the MIU Property Tree. This appendix will explain the naming conventions used in the PMC
setting catalogue shown below.
(2)
(1)

The name of the PMC button is comprised of two distinct parts: (1) PMC type, (2) PMC Usage.
The PMC type can either be RPMC, CPMC or SCPMC depending on the role of the PMC in the
HLDC polling.
The PMC Usage depends on the order of the PMC in the MIU and the redundancy. The table
below illustrates the PMC usage convention used in the MIU.

Total PMC Redundant System PMC Type/PMC Usage


Total PMC = 1 1+0/1+1 RPMC Normal
(Line concentrator/other CPMC Normal
equipment with no redundancy).
SCPMC Normal
N+1 RPMC Protection CH
CPMC Protection CH
SCPMC Protection CH
Line Concentrator/ Other RPMC Normal
Equipment CPMC Normal
SCPMC Normal
Total PMC >= 2 1+0/1+1 RPMC Additional PMC
N+1 RPMC Regular CH
For N+1 configuration, the default value of the PMC Usage is
Regular CH. When adding new PMC’s the user must
individually alter the PMC usage for any additional PMC’s
individually in the MIU properties window.
When changing the PMC Usage a warning message will
appear. (i.e. when adding a new PMC on the existing system
the new PMC should be labeled: Additional PMC.)
Line Concentrator RPMC Additional PMC
The additional PMC’s are in a fixed sequence. When deleting a PMC, the NetCfgToolj will first
delete the last PMC to have been added . This means you cannot add an additional PMC without
deleting the PMC’s below it first.

Appendix C: Configuration of Dual Master MIU


At MIU (Line Concentrator) two ports, NMS port and DPU port are available. By default
NetCfgToolj assigns NMS port for the line connection, when the Back-to-Back (BB) line is added.
Please use the Line Properties dialog box to change the port selection. Note that in the dual
master configuration, only 1 port can be assigned to NMS and 1 other port needs to be
assigned to DPU. Otherwise, errors may occur when you run Create Configuration.
Configuration of dual master MIU is described (as illustrated in the example):
DPU NMS

1. As illustrated in the figure below, place all


the NE symbols in the workspace first,
connect them with MIU using BB line.

2. As shown in the figure above the


connections from No.002 and No.007
to No.001 are both assigned to NMS
port. You need to use the Line
Properties dialog box to convert one
of the NMS ports into a DPU port as
illustrated in the figure below.

3. After the line properties are modified, MIU


(No.001) will be assigned with 1 NMS port
and 1 DPU port. Configuring (Create
Configuration) will then be possible.

Appendix D: Incorrect Configuration of MIU (Line Concentrator)


Setting up MIU (Line Concentrator) in a Multi-Drop configuration, please use DPU port on the
Master side of the Multi-Drop connection. This is due to the MIU hardware limitations.
1. As illustrated in the figure below, since DPU port is assigned on the Master side of the
Multi-Drop, this is a correct configuration and configuring (Create Configuration) would
be possible.

Appendix E: Incorrect Configuration of Pasolink Mx / Pasolink+


The following configuration is not possible in a mixed network of Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ and
PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU NE’s, when Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+ NE’s are placed close to
the PNMS, and are followed by PasolinkV3/PasolinkV4/Paso-S/MIU.
1. Otherwise errors may occur during configuring (Create Configuration) due to the
ASYNC (19.2kbps) IC limitation of the Pasolink Mx/Pasolink+.

As illustrated in the example below, No.007 (Pasolink+) is connected to No.009 (Pasolink


V3). No.009 becomes CPM, and its connection with No.007 (Pasolink+) is assigned to
use PPP Protocol (19.2 kbps); however, the Pasolink+, No.005 and No.007 connection
uses HDLC Protocol (19.2 kbps). As a result, in the No.007, a ASYNC (19.2kbps) IC is
required to serve two different protocols, which is not possible.

Instead, SYNC (64kbps) IC is used for the connection.

Appendix F: NMS Port Setting of MIU (Line Concentrator / Hop)


If an MIU (Line Concentrator or Hop type) is included in your system configuration, please confirm
the following points related to MIU setting.

1. When the MIU (Line Concentrator or Hop type) is connected as a PASOLINK+ or


PASOLINK Mx multi-drop connection, please confirm that the NMS port is set for each
MIU, for example, the connection of No.003 and No.004 in Pattern 1 or No.003 and

NE2 <Pattern 2> NE2


<Pattern 1>

NMS
NMS

No.005 in Pattern2.

2. Confirm that “Connect Port” of each MIU is set to “NMS” by opening “Line Properties”
between No.003 and No.004 in Pattern 1 or between No.003 and No.005 in Pattern 2.

- 173 -
ROI-S06695

3. In the above example, please confirm that both MIU’s do not have the same “NMS Port”
setting, by opening the “Port” category in “NE Properties”. If they are set to the same
mode please reset the “NMS Port” mode for the CPM by selecting the “Manual” mode in
the “Mode Auto Assign” setting from the “Port” category in “NE Properties”, so that the
“NMS Ports” of both MIUs can communicate by connecting them with a straight cable.

Note: When a 2 system (NE) type MIU is used in the above configuration, please be sure that
the “Connect Port” setting for both NEs is “NMS” and that the “Mode” setting of one
“NMS Port” is “RS485_TX” and the other is “RS485_RX” or vice versa. If the same
mode is set to both NMS Ports, the NMS Ports cannot communicate, because the NMS
Ports for both NEs are internally connected by straight cable.

Appendix G: Incorrect Configuration of Pasolink NEO / Pasolink Mx (Bridge NE) /


Pasolink+ STM-1 (Bridge NE) / Pasolink+ PDH (Bridge NE) (No.1)
A hub must be used when Pasolink NEO is to be connected to two (or more) NE(Bridge NE) in
a network configuration where both Pasolink NEO and Pasolink Mx(Bridge NE)/Pasolink+STM-
1(Bridge NE)/Pasolink+PDH(Bridge NE) coexist.
1. Without a hub link between Pasolink NEO and Pasolink+ NE, the Create Configuration
feature cannot function properly.

The following diagram shows such a case: No.005 (Pasolink NEO) is connected to No.003
(Pasolink Mx [Bridge NE]), and No.007 (Pasolink Mx [Bridge NE]). Since No. 003 is
connected to No. 005 via the EM1 connecting port and No. 007 is connected via the EM2,
if a hub were not used, a LAN connection with cross-cables would be necessary. Since,
this is not technically possible there is no other alternative to using a hub.

When a hub is used for the Back-to-Back connection of NE, it is necessary to extend two or
more connected lines from NE on the side near PNMS, and to connect it with other NE.
1. Otherwise, the Create Configuration feature cannot function properly.

When a hub is used as in the following example linking No.002, (Pasolink NEO), No.004,

Appendix I: Incorrect Configuration of Pasolink NEO


When Pasolink NEO is connected with PNMS, it is not possible to have a network configuration
where NE are connected via the “EM1” port to others (e.g. Pasolink NEO or Pasolink+).
No.001
1. Otherwise, (due to the Pasolink NEO connecting port “EM1” connecting port:
being used) the Create Configuration feature cannot EM1
function properly.

As can be seen from the example below, No.001


(Pasolink NEO) being connected to PNMS would be the
Root NE, and also No.001 being connected to No.003
(Pasolink NEO) via its EM1 port. This would require
that No.001which be connected to PNMS and No.003
via one and the same port (“EM1”), which is technically
impossible. Therefore, it would be necessary to use a
different connecting port (“EM2”).

2. Use the Line Properties dialog box to change the port via which No.001 is connected with
No.003. Please change the port of No.001 from (“EM1") to ("EM2").

3. After changing the line setting, configuring (Create No.001


Configuration) will be possible (however, the display connecting port:
