2.3 Subrack

The main parts of an unequipped ASM subrack are the card cage and the
backplane.

All timeslot speech and AU-V5.1 control communication between the AUS2
switch and the AU boards takes place in the subrack backplane in E1 frames.

O&M communication between the AXE host and the TAU2 is transferred
between the AUS2 switch and the TAU2 board in the subrack backplane in an
E1 frame. From the TAU2, the test and administration communication takes
place in the buses (ACOM and LCOM) connecting the TAU2, TAU-C2, AUS-C2
and the AU boards in the backplane.

-48 V DC power, subscriber line feeding voltages (VB1 and VB2), ring signal
(RG) and PRM signal are distributed in the backplane to all relevant slots from
the TAU-C2 board.

The backplane is also prepared for Ethernet communication between the


boards with the hub located at the AUS2 board.

2.4 ET port disposition at AUS2

AUS2 has 28 ET ports configured as E1s. They are arranged as in Table 1.

3.1.1 Power distribution

Table 2 shows the power supply structure within the ASM subrack.

The subrack is power supplied by -48V DC connected to the TAU-C2 board


front. After filtering at the TAU-C2, the -48V is distributed in the backplane to all
other board positions (Slot no 1-20).

At the TAU-C2, two voltages VB1 and VB2 are generated from the incoming
-48V for distribution in the backplane to the AU boards to be used for subscriber
line feeding.

+5V is distributed in the backplane from the TAU-C2 board to the AUS-C2
board at slot position 1. This voltage is used to supply the AUS-C2 HW identity
and board position reading logic.

For future use, if an I2C bus is introduced between AUS2 and AUS-C2, the
backplane is prepared for supplying the AUS-C2 board from the AUS2 board
with +3,3V instead of the present +5V supply from the TAU-C2 board.

3.1.2 Traffic links (E1s) and synchronization

There are 28 E1 ports at the AUS2 board. 18 of them (AUS2 port no. 5-22) are
routed in the backplane in a star configuration to each AU board position. 5 E1
(AUS2 port no. 23-27) are connected in the backplane from the AUS2 to the
AUS-C2 board for AXE host connection or ISDN/PRA accesses.

For external synchronization, the OSI and ISI interfaces to the AUS2 are routed
in the backplane to the AUS-C2 board to be accessible at the front of this board.

3.1.3 Ring-Generator (RG) and PRM

The Ring-Generator and the PRM generator are centralized at the TAU-C2
board. These analogue signals, together with their synchronization signals, are
routed in the backplane to all AU board positions.

3.1.4 O&M Communication buses

3.1.4.1 General

There are one ACOM and one LCOM bus in the ASM backplane. The buses
are available at all board positions but not used by all boards.

Via the TAU-C2 board, the buses are connected with cables to the other
subracks in a node. This makes it possible for one TAU2 to control and
supervise boards in other subracks within a node.

The buses are serial according to the RS-485 standard.

3.1.4.2 ACOM

The ACOM bus is the communication link between the TAU2 and the AU
boards.

3.1.4.3 LCOM

The LCOM bus is the communication link between the TAU2 and the AUS-C2
and the TAU-C2 boards.

3.1.5 Test access bus

This is the analogue test access connection. The buses connects the
measurement equipment on the TAU2 or external test equipment with the AU
boards.

The test access bus consists of a Line Test Access (LTA) pair and a Circuit Test
Access (CTA) pair. The bus is routed in the backplane from the TAU-C2
position and is available at all AU slot positions in the subrack.

Via the TAU-C2 board, the bus is connected with cables to the other subracks
in the node. This makes it possible for one TAU2 to control and supervise also
boards in other subracks.

3.1.6 PULSI

A synchronous interface called PULSI is handling the test access bus relays at
the TAU-C2 board in an ASM subrack equipped with a TAU2 board. The TAU2
is the PULSI interface master and controls relays at the TAU-C2 to make
requested test access bus connections.

3.1.7 Failure / Service Indications

The failure/service indication LEDs (MIA) placed on each plug in units are
connected in the backplane with a star structure from the TAU-C2. The control
of the LED function is done by the TAU2 which sends the LED information over
the LCOM bus to the TAU-C2 units in each subrack.

3.1.8 Ethernet and I2C interfaces

For future use, each board in the ASM subrack can be connected to an Ethernet
network. An Ethernet switch/hub is proposed to be placed at the AUS2. Each
board position will be given access in the backplane to this Ethernet switch. The
Ethernet can in future rationalization steps replace the internal communication
between boards that today is done over the ACOM and LCOM buses.

For future communication between AUS2 and AUS-C2, an I2C interface is


prepared for in the ASM backplane to be used if the LCOM bus is removed from
the system.

3.1.9 Addressing

3.1.9.1 Subrack ID (SUBID)

The 4 bit subrack address (SUBID) in a MACCG is set with a DIP switch in the
backplane. This information is available at all board positions in the backplane.

Note 1 - Some boards may only decode the three least significant bits of the
SUBID thus limiting the number of subracks in a node to 8.

Note 2 - Backplane definitions:


• Logical “0”: Signal pin connected to ground
• Logical “1”: Signal pin not connected

3.2.3 Fan

One fan unit can be power supplied with -48V from the ASM subrack by a cable
connected to the TAU-C2 board front. This interface also handles alarms from
the fan unit.

3.2.4 External E1s

5 E1 (AUS2 port no. 23-27) for connection to the AXE host are available at the
AUS-C2 board front to be connected to the DDF. Both 75 ohm unbalanced and
120 ohm balanced interfaces are available according to ITU-T Rec. G.703.

If the subrack handles the STR-STC control link to the AXE host, this link is
carried in timeslot 16 within external E1 number 1 (AUS2 port 27).

Some of the five E1s can alternatively be used as ISDN/PRA or external V5


accesses.

3.2.5 OSI/ISI (External synch)

An external (input and output) synch interface according to ITU-T Rec. G.703 is
available at the AUS-C2 board front.

The ISI input is intended for incoming 2048 kHz external synchronization signal
to be used as an alternative synchronization source for the node instead of
synchronizing to one of the E1 from the AXE host.

The OSI output delivers a 2048 kHz synchronized clock signal to be used by
other equipment at the site or equipment downstream in the network (e.g. PBX)
that needs a clock signal locked to the AXE host clock.

3.2.6 Monitor

The MONITOR output located at the AUS-C2 board front can be used to
monitor one or more of the 5 external E1s at the AUS-C2 board for maintenance
purposes.

3.2.7 Node internal E1s and node synchronization

Interconnection of the AUSs between ASM subracks in the same node for the
EMRP-ring, the mesh-network and synchronization (SYNC-ring) is performed
by front cabling at the AUS2 board. 5 E1s (AUS2 port no. 0-4) and the SYNC-
ring signals are included in this network.

3.2.8 Subscriber lines to MDF

From the MDF, the subscriber lines are connected with cables to the ASM
subrack at the AU boards with 30 lines to each board for the PSTN case. For
ISDN/BA, 15 lines are connected to each AU board.

4.2 Cabinets

The ASM subrack is intended for BYB 501 (both 300 mm and 400 mm depth)
or BYB 502 cabinets. By use of suitable mounting brackets, it may be mounted
in 19 inch racks or cabinets or in ETS 300 119-3 cabinets like BYB 311. It can
also be mounted in outdoor cabinets.

When not mounted in BYB 501 or BYB 502, thermal and other properties have
to be verified to ensure reliable operation.

4.3 Weight

Depending on configuration, an ASM weighs up to 23 kg.

4.4 Traffic Capacity

4.4.1 PSTN and ISDN/BA

Depending on number of E1 connections to the AXE host, PSTN traffic can be


offered up to 0,25 E/line or for ISDN/BA up to 0,25 E/B-channel.

Other factors, like special AU boards with high power dissipation due to high
line current feeding characteristics in combination with high ambient
temperature, can also limit the allowed traffic capacity.

4.4.2 PSTN and PRA

With lower requirement on PSTN traffic capacity, the ASM subrack can be
configured to offer both PSTN and ISDN/PRA traffic.

4.5 Power Consumption

The values in Table 3 for the power dissipation of the specific boards are
provided as a guideline. For accurate dimensioning of the node power supply,
please refer to the information in PRIM for the particular BFE product.
