WEB LCT APPLICATION

WEB LCT application allows an user connecting to an equipment via his own machine (PC, Workstation,
etc.) using the operating system and the Web browser at his disposal.

WEB LCT is an application resident in the equipment controller. It does not require any additional module
installed on the user PC (see Installation).

At start-up of WEB LCT application, the browser displays the WEB Local Craft Terminal (WEB LCT) page.

The WEB LCT page can be opened directly from browser or from SCT/LMT program (see Open/close the
WEB LCT page).
In the first case, the WEB LCT interface of the equipment, whose IP is entered in the address bar of the
browser, is opened (see Fig.1).
In the second case, the WEB LCT interface of the equipment selected in SCT/LMT application is opened
(see Fig.2).

Through WEB LCT application, the user can check the equipment operating status and directly intervene
to manage it, verifying/modifying the configuration parameters (see Functionalities and Menu and com-
mands (Equipment Menu).

Remote equipment list (more info)

Every equipment has a remote equipment list stored in its own controller.

With remote equipment list we mean a list containing all the network remote equipment which you wish
to connect to.
For a better vision of the equipment during the setting of the list, the equipment can be subdivided into
stations in such a way that, when a station is selected, the application will display only the detail of the
equipment associated with this specific station. The station does not have any particular meaning: it has
been simply introduced to help the user during the localization of the equipment.

In every remote equipment list, a maximum of 100 equipment and 30 stations can be created.

The remote equipment list can be used to connect, at the same time, to more equipment only if the pro-
gram SCT/LMT is available.

When the user requests the connection to a generic equipment present into the network (local equipment),
at the connection of this equipment, SCT/LMT program reads its remote equipment list and automatically
forwards the connection command to all the equipment present into the list.

In this way, the application displays, in the Station List area of SCT/LMT graphical interface, all the stations
that group the equipment and, in the Equipment List area (selecting the relevant station), it displays the
functional status of the local equipment (that results in connected/login status) and the functional status
of all the remote equipment present in the list. The equipment which have answered to the connection
request of the application will result in connected/monitor status.

The application will cyclically forward the connection command, to the equipment which have not answered
to the connection request, until to:
• The connection with the local equipment is deactivated.
• The user disables the equipment.
• The equipment is deleted from the remote equipment list of the local equipment.

More details about SCT/LMT program are reported into the relevant manuals.

Contextual area

The contextual area is the part of the WEB LCT page where the equipment parameters are displayed.
Its content changes accordingly to the selected command in the Equipment Menu area.

In the top part of the contextual area, there are push-buttons used to confirm or update the data present
in the area itself. Usually, there are:
Apply. Selecting it makes the changes, executed on the parameters present in the contextual area,
effective.
Its selection opens a confirmation window. The confirmation windows are timed. When this period
is elapsed (pointed out by the progress bar), if the user has not confirmed the operation, the window
is closed and the operation cancelled.
If the push-button is not available:
• It is not possible to execute changes because the user profile does not allow this or the
equipment is in connected/monitor status.
• No parameter present in the window has been modified. In this case, the push-button be-
comes available when the value of a parameter is changed.
• Another push-button is present in the contextual area for the confirmation of the operation
or the change of the parameters.

Refresh. Force the reading of the data from equipment.


If the push-button is not available, the connection with the equipment is not active.

Help. Open the help on-line.

For some commands, other push-buttons are displayed relevant only to the context which contains them.
These push-buttons are described in the paragraph relevant to the specific command.

Besides the push-buttons, the top part of the contextual area dynamically displays the group and the com-
mand selected in Equipment Menu area and which the displayed parameters refer to.

For some commands, the parameters are subdivided in tabs. The selection of a tab dynamically changes
the content of the contextual area.

The parameters present in the contextual area can be read-only or set or modified.
The description of the single commands (see Menu and commands (Equipment Menu) indicates the param-
eters which can be modified and modalities to do that.
Generally, for the parameter setting, the following rules are valid:
• Entering a value (alphanumeric string) in a text box.
If a red line is displayed below the text box, the entered value is not allowed because, for ex-
ample, a number of characters greater than the allowed one or an invalid value has been entered
(for example, entering of value 172.18.70.334 as IP address).
• Box with possible values displayed in a drop-down menu.
When the value is changed, a red triangle is displayed in the top left edge of the box. It signals
that the value has been changed, but the change has not been communicated yet to the equip-

ing Table. For every item, is pointed out in the column:

Destination. IP address of the IP network or of the destination element.

Net Mask. IP NetMask of the IP network or of the destination element.

Hop. IP address of the equipment that acts as Gateway.

Interface. Supervision port of the local equipment which the Gateway equipment is connected to:
• Lan. Communication port with the LAN network.
• <no wording>. Inner port (internal loopback).

Protocol. Modality of connection (direct or indirect) between specific port (Interface) and destination
IP network:
• Local. The IP network or the element are directly connected to the equipment interface. The
IP network or the element are automatically inserted by the equipment software.
• NetMgmt. The IP network or the element are not directly reachable from the equipment in-
terfaces. The IP network or the element have been manually inserted by the user (static el-
ement).

Routing Table and Default Gateway (more info)

WARNING When all the equipment belongs to the same IP network and sending packets to other networks
is not necessary, the Routing Table and the address of the Gateway equipment must not be necessarily
defined because the network can manage its own internal traffic.
Setting these parameter is necessary when equipment must send packets between two different networks,
then the traffic must be re-routed from a network to another one (routing functionality of the equipment).

Routing Table

The function of the Routing Table is the one to check the routing of the supervisory messages exchanged
among the elements (PCs, equipment, etc.), that use the TCP/IP protocol, from one network to the other
one.

Routing Table (Running)

Each equipment at its initialisation (start-up operation) automatically sets the elements of the Routing Ta-
ble that identify the supervisory ports of the equipment (communication ports provided with the equipment
for the input/output of the supervisory signal).
These elements are set according to the IP addresses assigned to each port.
If the user changes the IP address of a supervisory port, the system does not dynamically change it into
the equipment Routing Table. The equipment must be reset, because the elements of the Routing Table
are set at the equipment start-up.
If necessary, the user can add some other elements to these ones (automatically set).
The system records each new element (manually set) into the currently used Routing Table (Running Rout-
ing Table) and into the backup memory of the equipment controller (Stored Routing Table); the system
does not record the elements (automatically set) into the backup memory of the controller because they
are newly set at every equipment start-up.
The Running Routing Table is a static. The system updates this table, with the elements present in the
Stored Routing Table, at every equipment start-up.

Stored Routing Table

The equipment does not currently use the Stored Routing Table. This table becomes operative on the
equipment restart.
In fact, in this case, the system inserts the elements of the Stored Routing Table into the Routing Table
used by the equipment (Running Routing Table). What just said is valid only for the elements whose router
equipment (Hop) is associated to an active interface.
The setting of the Stored Routing Table id necessary, for instance, when the user wants to change an ad-
dress of the equipment supervisory ports.
In this case, the currently used Routing Table (Running Routing Table) cannot be changed.
The changes have to be inserted into the Stored Routing Table. At the next equipment start-up, the system
inserts the elements of the Stored Routing Table into the Routing Table used by the equipment.

Default Gateway

The system forwards to the equipment with the Default Gateway function the data that have a receiver
unreachable through the routes present into the Routing Table.

of the records (Counters Status). In detail, the wording:
• Meaningless. The record has been completely acquired and the measure is not affected by er-
rors.
• Meaningful. The record has been completely acquired and the measured control parameters
have not exceeded their threshold value.
• Incomplete. The record has not been completely acquired during the corresponding observation
period.
The measure starting record is always in this status. The daily record gets this status also when
only one primary record of the corresponding day is in incomplete status.
The daily record of the current date will be always an incomplete one because the daily records
are acquired at 23.59 of each day.
• Lost. The record has not reached the main controller of the equipment for instance because the
corresponding peripheral card has been physically extracted before it could have forwarded the
record itself or for generic hardware/software troubles.
• Restarted. The record has been lost after a reset of the NE.
When the NE has a software restart and checks that the measure is activated for a certain meas-
ure point, all the record coupled with this measure point will result in this status.
• ---. The record is not an available one because, during the observation period under examina-
tion, the measure was not activated.

The window contains a table which lists the measure counters. For every counter, the result of the
measure is pointed out relevant to a given observation period (daily or primary record). In detail, the
column:
• Type. Counters. One counter is foreseen for every ACM profile: 4QAM Str, 4QAM, 16QAM Str,
16QAM, 32QAM, 64QAM, 128QAM, 256QAM, 512QAM, 1024QAM.
For every counter, the column of the specific observation period indicates (expressed in sec-
onds) the number of times the counter is increased.
The rule used to increased a counter changes according to the currently active modality (see
Policy parameter).
Besides one counter per modulation, two further counters are foreseen:
• DownShift. Number of times the profile, during the specific observation period, has
changed assuming a profile lower than the previous one.
• UpShift. Number of times the profile, during the specific observation period, has changed
assuming a profile higher than the previous one.
Into the table, the system does not point out the results relevant to all the control parameters.
These results have been subdivided according to the counter type (see Seconds or UpDownShift
label).
• Curr. Day. Current daily record (24 hours).
• Last Day. Preceding daily record.
• Curr. 15m. Current primary record (15 minutes).
• 15m... 4h. 16 preceding primary records (each record is of 15 minutes).

What just said is valid from the second row of the table on, because the first row indicates the status
of the records (Counters Status). In detail, the wording:
• Meaningless. The record has been completely acquired and the measure is not affected by er-
rors.
• Meaningful. The record has been completely acquired and the measured control parameters
have not exceeded their threshold value.
• Incomplete. The record has not been completely acquired during the corresponding observation
period.

The measure starting record is always in this status. The daily record gets this status also when
only one primary record of the corresponding day is in incomplete status.
The daily record of the current date will be always an incomplete one because the daily records
are acquired at 23.59 of each day.
• Lost. The record has not reached the main controller of the equipment for instance because the
corresponding peripheral card has been physically extracted before it could have forwarded the
record itself or for generic hardware/software troubles.
• Restarted. The record has been lost after a reset of the NE.
When the NE has a software restart and checks that the measure is activated for a certain meas-
ure point, all the record coupled with this measure point will result in this status.
• ---. The record is not an available one because, during the observation period under examina-
tion, the measure was not activated.

The left side of the window displays the threshold exceeding alarms.
Each box represents an alarm. Box:
• 15M <counter>. Threshold exceeding alarm of the specific counter into one of the primary ob-
servation periods (15 minutes) present into the window.
• 24H <counter>. Threshold exceeding alarm of the specific counter into one of the daily obser-
vation periods (24 hours) present into the window.

The colour of the boxes represents the alarm status and severity:
• Red, Orange, Yellow, Light blue. Alarm activated coupled respectively with the Critical, Major,
Minor, Warning severity.
• Green. Alarm activated coupled with the Status severity level.
• Grey. Alarm deactivated.

The Policy box indicates the modality used to increase the counters:
• Active Mod. The counter is increased each second if the corresponding ACM profile is equal to
the one currently active.
• Not Avail. Mod. The counter is increased each second if the corresponding ACM profile is higher
than the current one and lower than or equal to the upper modulation threshold (Upper Modu-
lation).
Example. Suppose the ACM profile 128 QAM has been defined as Upper Modulation and the current
modulation is 16 QAM. If the active modality is:
• Active Mod, each second only the counter 16QAM is increased.
• Not Avail. Mod, each second the counters 32QAM, 64QAM, 128QAM are increased.

RxPwr Radio <radio branch> measure

The RxPwr Radio <radio branch> measure checks the power of the signal at reception.
The check consists of measuring the RLTS, RLTM quality parameters specified by the Standard EN 301 129
of the ETSI (see Quality parameters description (PM measures).

In the Performance Monitoring contextual area, press Show at the side of the measure. The RXPwr Radio
<radio branch> window opens where it is possible:

2. Press Show next to the RxPwr Radio <radio branch> measure (RxPwr group).
The RxPwr Radio <radio branch> window displays the results of the measures and the status of the
alarms relevant to the exceeding of the threshold limits.

The window contains a table which lists the measure control parameters. For every parameter, the re-
sult of the measure is pointed out relevant to a given observation period (daily or primary record). In
detail, the column:
• Type. Control parameters: TMMax, TMMin, Average Level, Rlts.
Into the table, the system does not point out the results relevant to all the control parameters.
These results have been subdivided according to the used measuring unit: seconds or dBm. See
labels Rlts and TM.
• Curr. Day. Current daily record (24 hours).
• Last Day. Preceding daily record.
• Curr. 15m. Current primary record (15 minutes).
• 15m... 4h. 16 preceding primary records (each record is of 15 minutes).
What just said is valid from the second row of the table on, because the first row indicates the status
of the records (Counters Status). In detail, the wording:
• Meaningless. The record has been completely acquired and the measure is not affected by er-
rors.
• Meaningful. The record has been completely acquired and the measured control parameters
have not exceeded their threshold value.
• Incomplete. The record has not been completely acquired during the corresponding observation
period.
The measure starting record is always in this status. The daily record gets this status also when
only one primary record of the corresponding day is in incomplete status.
The daily record of the current date will be always an incomplete one because the daily records
are acquired at 23.59 of each day.
• Lost. The record has not reached the main controller of the equipment for instance because the
corresponding peripheral card has been physically extracted before it could have forwarded the
record itself or for generic hardware/software troubles.
• Restarted. The record has been lost after a reset of the NE.
When the NE has a software restart and checks that the measure is activated for a certain meas-
ure point, all the record coupled with this measure point will result in this status.
• ---. The record is not an available one because, during the observation period under examina-
tion, the measure was not activated.

The left side of the window displays the threshold exceeding alarms.
Each box represents an alarm. Box:

PM measures (more info)

A PM measure consists of recording, during a pre-defined time range (observation period), the values of
specific parameters.
Some threshold limits have been assigned to these control parameters (the setting of the thresholds can
be changed).
The exceeding of the threshold limit indicates a more or less serious degradation of the signal. This condi-
tion generates an alarm.
The alarms relevant to the threshold exceeding are treated by the equipment and by the application as
normal alarms. The only exception is that the alarm is not automatically reset at the return into the thresh-
old limit but the user has to execute the reset of this kind of alarms.
The control parameters under examination change according to the equipment type and to the measure
type supported by that type of equipment. Usually, all the executed measures refer to ITU-T Recommen-
dations (for instance G.828, G.826, etc.).

The activation (and the deactivation) of the PM measures can be executed only after a command forwarded
by the user.
When it has been activated a PM measure, the main controller of the equipment starts the storing of the
values relevant to the control parameters. The results of the measures are sub-divided into records. Each
record contains the values recorded into a specific time range (observation period).
If at the end of the observation period, the measure has not yet been deactivated the system starts another
observation period and so on until when the operator stops the measure.
The equipment group the results of the PM measures into observation period of 15 minutes (primary re-
cords) and of 24 hours (daily records).

The observation periods cannot be synchronized with the instant when the measure is activated, but this
records refer, for the primary records, to the quarter of an hour (00.00, 00.15, 00.30, etc.) and, for the
daily records, to the time 00.00 UTC (Universal Time, Coordinated).
For instance, if a measure starts at 11.40, the first primary record will have as observation period the time
11.40...11.45 (corresponding to the time range 11.30...11.45), while the first daily record will have as ob-
servation period 11.40...00.00.

When the user requires the display of the results of the PM measures, the daily and primary records rele-
vant to the running PM measures are displayed in the WEB LCT page of the equipment.

For each type of measure, the equipment keeps stored the current records and also the last 16 primary
records (corresponding to the last 4 hours) and the last daily one (corresponding to the preceding day).
The preceding records are overwritten.
When the operator stops a measure, the system stores the uncompleted current record.

If the operator activates and deactivates the measure more times during the same observation period, the
system will store the record that contains the results of the last executed measure.
For instance if the measure has been activated at 9.02 and deactivated at 9.07, then it has been newly
activated at 9.09, the record relevant to the observation period 9.00...9.15 will contain the results of the
measures relevant to the period 9.09...9.15, while the ones relevant to the period 9.02...9.07 will not be
stored.

If some PM measures are in progress on an equipment and this is restarted or turned off, at the next re-
start/start-up the measures active before the turn-off will be automatically restarted.
The records (primary and daily), relevant to the period when the measure has been stopped, will result
empty and when the limit of 16 primary records and 1 daily one is reached, they will overwrite the previous
records.

SNTP functionality (more info)

ALFOplus equipment, via SNTP (Simple Network Time Protocol) protocol, can update its date/time using
an element within the network as reference (SNTP functionality).

Via WEB LCT (or SCT/LMT) application, a maximum of two elements can be defined, one main (set in the
Main Server IP Address box) and one secondary (set in the Reserve Server IP Addr box), from which the
equipment automatically gets the reference date/time each n seconds (set in the Polling Interval box). En-
tering a valid value for the main and/or secondary element activates the functionality.

If the main element does not answer to the request of updating of the equipment reference date/time, this
request is sent for n times (set in the Polling Retries box) each t seconds (set in the Polling Timeout box).
At the end of this requests, if the main element does not answer, the equipment requires the updating of
the date/time to the secondary element.

If the secondary element does not answer to the request of updating of the equipment reference date/
time, this request is sent for n times each t seconds. At the end of this request, if the secondary element
does not answer the equipment, the system activates the SNTP servers lost Alarm and requires the update
of the date/time of the main element and so on.
If no network element set can be reached, the reference date/time of the equipment is not updated. This
condition is signalled by the activation of NTP Server Lost Alarm (SNTP tab).

To deactivate the automatic acquisition of the reference date/time, the IP address of the main and second-
ary elements must be reset.

Wake Up functionality (more info)

The Wake Up functionality allows the user enabling the spontaneous forward, from the equipment to a re-
mote server, of a SNMP trap for the notification of the equipment commissioning (Wake Up trap).

This functionality has been implemented as help to the Auto Discovery modality available in the supervision
systems NMS5UX, NMS5UX-B and NMS5LX.

The Auto Discovery mode has the purpose to point out new equipment in the network, not managed by
the supervision system yet. More information about the Auto Discovery modality is reported in the relevant
documentation.

This chapter shows only the management of the Wake Up trap by the equipment. In detail, the implemen-
tation of the Wake Up functionality is the following.

Via WEB LCT (or SCT/LMT) application, it is possible:


• Define the IP address of the server where the supervision system, which the trap must be sent
to (NMS IP Address option - Wake Up tab) is installed.
• Define the time interval for which the trap must be sent, after which the sending of the trap is
automatically disabled (Timeout option).
If the value 0 is set for the Timeout option, the Wake Up trap will be sent until when the user
manually disables it or the NMS server automatically disables it when intercepts it.
• Activate and deactivate the sending of the trap.
To activate the Wake Up functionality, it is necessary to set a valid value (different from 0.0.0.0)
for the IP address of the server (NMS IP Address option) and select the Enable option.
To deactivate the functionality, it is necessary to select the Disable option or reset the NMS IP
Address option (value 0.0.0.0).

When the Wake Up functionality is activated, the equipment starts sending the Wake Up trap every minute
for the time interval defined by the user (Timeout option). For example, if the value 60 has been set as
timeout, the trap is sent each 60 minutes. At the end of 60 minutes, the sending of the trap is automatically
disabled.

If, in the period when the sending of the trap is enabled, the supervision system intercepts the Wake Up
notification records the presence of the new equipment in its database and disables the sending of the
Wake Up trap by the equipment (trap switch-off).

Interrupted is displayed in the Download Status box of the branch whose firmware you are updating.
If the parameters are compatible, the operation is started and the Download Status box of the branch
whose firmware you are updating dynamically updates the progress of the operation, which requires
some minutes:
• Downloading. The operation is running.
The Abort push-button, present in the Download Status box during the firmware update, can
be used to stop the operation. Its selection requires the confirmation.
During the updating, the system deletes the firmware present into the bench memory and it up-
dates the firmware of the equipment one component at a time.
If the operation is stopped, into the memory bench there will be only the already updated com-
ponents. In this case, the new version can result unusable because not integral (the bench will
be in Not Loaded status).
In this case, the controller keeps the minimum functions necessary to allow a new firmware up-
date.
• Complete. The update operation is ended.
The Software Version box indicates the new firmware version.

Equipment firmware (more info)

The firmware of the equipment is the assembly of all the firmware necessary for the management of the
entire equipment (firmware of the main controller and firmware of the peripheral units).

The firmware of the equipment is present into the main controller that is provided with two memory bench-
es (bench) the first one on service and the other one in waiting status.

Each bench can contain one firmware version (also different from the other one) of the equipment.

It is possible to update the equipment sw/fw relevant to one memory bench only at a time. The application
automatically updates the firmware of the memory bench not running or not present (Bench Status pa-
rameter - Loaded or Not Loaded value).

Factory Default of the equipment (more info)

Through the graphical interface WEB LCT, the Factory Default settings of an equipment can be restored.

At the restart or at the new switch-on of the equipment, the Factory Default configuration will be applied.

All the settings executed until then by the user will be deleted (for example, user list, remote equipment
list, etc.).

In Factory Default status, the connection to the equipment and to the link takes place by means of the
Ethernet port AUX and using the connection modality Out of Band.
In order to login to the equipment, the default user must be used. Username: SYSTEM - Password: siae-
micr.

The communication ports of the equipment will be restored to the addresses pointed out in Tab.2.
These addresses differ depending on the type (High or Low) of ODU. The equipment keeps always in mem-
ory the type (High or Low) of the last connected ODU.

Tab.2 Factory Default - ALFOplus

Default Gateway null - Low

null - High

Agent IP Address Local Ethernet address

Rescue connection (more info)

If the user has lost the connection with the equipment because of a wrong configuration of the connection
parameters, the recovery procedure can be used (rescue connection).

At switch-on, the equipment opens a time window of 20 seconds during which it makes itself reachable on
the ports LAN 1 and LAN 2 using the rescue connection address and accepts the user login through the
correct username and password. In this modality, the port LAN 1 and LAN 2 accepts only frames without
VLAN tag.
The rescue connection IP address is: 172.20.253.13.

Once logged in, the user can configure the equipment and possible, restore the Factory Default condition.

The detection of the time window during which the rescue connection can be attempted is managed by an
external software application.

Enabling/forwarding/severity of an alarm (more info)

WARNING The enabling/disabling of the alarm and of the forwarding of the trap is independent for each
alarm and local to the equipment which the operation is executed for. This means that the setting must be
executed for each single alarm of each single equipment.

Enabling/disabling the alarms

The term alarm means the fault signal generated by an error or by a wrong operation of the equipment or
of any element that compose it.

The equipment alarms can be disabled and re-enabled by the user according to the needs.

Disabling an alarm means that, on the detection of the alarm itself, this is not registered in the equipment
controller and, as consequence, is not communicated to a possible management program: as the alarm
had never occurred.

On the contrary, enabling an alarm (default condition) means that, when the alarm is detected, this is reg-
istered in the equipment controller and, if the forwarding of the relevant trap is enabled (see next item),
the alarm is communicated to the management system and displayed in the current alarms and the history
alarms.

Enabling/disabling the forwarding of the alarm traps

The trap is a message (in this case of detection or clearing of an alarm) spontaneously sent by the equip-
ment to a possible external management system, for example SCT/LMT and/or NMS5UX/NMS5UX-B/
NMS5LX.

The forwarding of the trap of each alarm can be disabled and re-enabled by the user according to his own
needs.
Disabling a trap means that, on the detection of the alarm, this is not registered in the equipment controller
and, as consequence, is not communicated to a possible management program.

On the contrary, enabling a trap (default condition) means that, on the detection of the alarm, this is reg-
istered in the equipment controller and communicated to the management system, which displays it in the
current alarms and the history alarms.

Alarm severity

Each alarm acknowledged and managed by the management program has an associated severity level
which determinates the importance of the alarm.

This severity is not fixed, but can be changed by the user as he likes.

The users list is a list of users that can be connected and ask for the login to the equipment.
If a user is not present in the users list memorized in the equipment controller, this user will not be able
to connect and/or to execute the login to that equipment.
Each equipment, that can be managed by the WEB LCT or SCT/LMT application, is equipped with two preset
users:
• SYSTEM. User of WEB LCT application or SCT/LMT program with the following features:
• User name: System (unchangeable parameter).
• Timeout: No Timeout (changeable parameter).
• Profile: System (unchangeable parameter).
• Password: Siaemicr (default) (changeable parameter - see Change the password and the
timeout of the System user).

The System user is single one for every equipment and he can not be deleted.
Only this user has the possibility to create, modify and delete users in the user list.
The user with System profile can as to check the parameters (reading operation) as to forward
commands or to execute changing (writing operation) to the equipment configuration.
• NMS5UX. User of the NMS5UX/NMS5UX-B/NMS5LX system, with the following features:
• User name: NMS5UX (unchangeable parameter).
• Timeout: No Timeout (changeable parameter).
• Profile: System (unchangeable parameter).
• Password: Predefined (changeable parameter - see Change the password and the time-

Multiple ACM profiles per modulation

When more than one ACM profile (different FEC redundancy) is available at the selected reference modu-
lation (i.e.: 4 QAM and 4 QAM strong), the maximum throughput profile will be automatically selected (i.e.:
4 QAM).

When more than one ACM profile (different FEC redundancy) is available at the selected lower modulation
(i.e.: 4 QAM and 4 QAM strong), the minimum throughput profile will be automatically included (i.e.: 4
QAM strong).

When more than one ACM profile (different FEC redundancy) is available at the selected upper modulation
(i.e.: 4 QAM and 4 QAM strong), the maximum throughput profile will be automatically included (i.e.: 4
QAM).

Reference modulation and power profile of the transmitter

The choice of the reference modulation and of the power profile depends on the license type owned by the
network operator.
The reference modulation determines the emission spectrum to be in compliance with the current laws.
The power profile increasing when the modulation decreases can be enabled according to the standard
ETSI EN 302 217-2-2: the power as function of the modulation can be only lower then or equal to the power
of the reference modulation.
More information is reported in the equipment manual ALFOplus.

Management of synchronisation (more info)

ALFOplus equipment can be configured to operate with synchronisation enabled or disabled.


When the synchronisation is disable, the synchronisation is not managed: the clocks are generated by the
local internal reference.
When the synchronisation is enabled, the synchronism source, enabled with the highest priority, is used
to synchronise the equipment (if a forcing or a preferential is not active).
If the quality is active as criterion for the selection of the synchronism, the enabled source with highest
quality is used to synchronize the equipment (if no forcing is active).
The user can enable or disable the management of synchronisation as he wishes (see Synchronisation)and
enable/disable the use of the source quality as criterion to select the synchronism.

Here below the following topics are described:


Synchronism sources
Enabling of the synchronism sources
Priority of the synchronism source
Quality of synchronism source
Forcing of a synchronism source
Function of preferential synchronism source
Internal synchronism T0

Synchronism sources

The equipment has more synchronism sources.


TE LAN-1. Source extracted from the LAN 1 of Ethernet Switch (electrical or optical interface).
TE LAN-2. Source extracted from the LAN 2 of Ethernet Switch (electrical interface).
T2 Radio. Source extracted from the Radio 1A.
Internal. Source extracted from an its own internal reference (12,8MHz STRATUM 3).

WARNING If the TE LAN-1 and TE LAN-2 sources are not available, this means that the SyncE & G.8264
functionality is not enabled for the equipment (see Verify the functionalities enabled for the equipment).

Enabling of the synchronism sources

A synchronism source, in order to be used, must be enabled by the user (see Enable/disable the use of a
synchronism source).

Priority of the synchronism source

A priority level can be associated to every synchronism source (see Modify the use priority of a synchronism
source).

When the quality is not active as criterion for the selection of the synchronism, the source with the highest
priority level and whose signal is valid, is used to synchronize the equipment (if a forcing or a preferential
source is not active).

The priority level of the synchronism source is pointed out by a number between 1 and 9, where 1 indicates
the highest priority and 9 the lowest one.

Generally the equipment takes the synchronism from the source with the highest priority level: if this
source is missing or is degraded, the synchronism is taken from the source with priority level immediately
lower.

WEB LCT ALFOplus - Release 1.2 - MN.00281.E - 004 119


When the source with highest priority level returns to be valid, the equipment after the WTR time will au-
tomatically start to use it to take the synchronism. If all the synchronism sources (set by the user) become
unavailable, the equipment automatically takes the synchronism from its own internal reference.

The degradation of the signal is caused by the presence of, at least, one of the following conditions:
• The source is not physically present.
• The difference between the source frequency and the internal reference source (STRATUM 3) is
greater than ± 7 ppm.

If two or more sources with the same priority are activated, these sources will be inserted into a circular
and not Revertive list.

Quality of synchronism source

Every synchronism source is characterized by a quality level.


Through WEB LCT page, it is possible Enable/disable the use of the source quality as criterion for the syn-
chronism selection.

When the use of quality is enabled, it concurs in the selection of the source to use for the synchronisation
in the following way: the source with higher quality level, and whose signal is valid, is used to synchronize
the equipment (if a forcing is not active).
The source quality level is given by the synchronisation status messages (SSM - Synchronisation Status
Message).
The availability quality levels, from higher to lower level, are listed here below:
• PRC (Primary Reference Clock). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-T G.781 with
extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the primary reference
clock.
• SSUT (Synchronisation Supply Unit Transit). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-
T G.781 with extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the
transit synchronism units.
• SSUL (Synchronisation Supply Unit Local). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-T
G.781 with extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the syn-
chronism local units.
• SEC (SDH Equipment Clock). The source quality is in compliance with Recc. ITU-T G.781 with
extension to G.8264 for Ethernet streams which defines the parameters of the equipment clock.

The management of the SSM messages can be enabled for every single LAN port.
This setting affects the transmission and the reception of the SSM messages as displayed here below.

management (Rx) (Tx)

Enable Quality value (SSM) is extracted from Quality value of T0 is inserted in the transmitted
the received packet packet (value equivalent to DNU if T0 is derived
from the considered tributary)

Disable Quality value is DNU SSM messages are not transmitted

As regards the quality management via the WEB LCT page, it is possible:
Enable/disable the use of the source quality as criterion for the synchronism selection
Force the quality level in input and/or output of a synchronism source
Verify/modify the modality to assign the role of the LAN ports (1000Base-T) used as synchronism

Verify/modify the management of SSM protocol for every single LAN

WARNING The quality of the synchronism sources is a feature subjected to enabling (SSM G8264 (quality
sync) equipment feature).
If this feature is not enabled, all the parameters relevant to the quality management will not be available
(see Verify the functionalities enabled for the equipment).

120 WEB LCT ALFOplus - Release 1.2 - MN.00281.E - 004


Forcing of a synchronism source

This function foresees the user can force the selection of one synchronism source (see Force the use of a
synchronism source).

This forcing is made without considering the status, the quality level and the priority of the source.

This function must not be used for the normal operation of the synchronism. It is a maintenance operation
and remains active until the user disables it or the Timeout period of the manual operations expires (if set).

Function of preferential synchronism source

This function foresees the choice of a source to use as preferential among those enabled (see Set a syn-
chronism source as preferential).

When the function of preferential source is not active, the internal synchronism is taken from the enabled
source with highest quality level or highest priority (if the quality is not active).

When the function of preferential source is activated for a source, this source will be used (in absence of
alarms causing its degradation or forced sources) to take the internal synchronism independently from its
priority level.

This condition is maintained until when the user disables the function of preferential source or the source
signal becomes degraded.
This applies only if the quality is not enabled as criterion for the selection of the synchronism.

Internal synchronism T0

The synchronism source, which the internal synchronism T0 is extracted from, is determined by the SETS
of the equipment according to the following order of criteria:
• Status of the source (enabled/disabled)
• Forcing of the source
• Status of the signal (valid/degraded)
• Quality level of the source (if the quality management is enabled)
• Preferential source
• Source priority
The internal synchronism T0 can assume one of the following statuses:
• Free Running. The status of Free Running is forced (synchronism T0 is generated by the equip-
ment internal reference - Internal Source).
• Hold Over. The status of Hold Over is forced.
• Locked. The synchronism is locked to an external source.

The user can force the status of the internal synchronism T0 (see Force the status of T0 synchronisation).
The forcing of the status Hold Over or Free Running is not the normal operation of the synchronism T0.
These forcings are maintenance operations and remain active until when the user does not disable them
or the Timeout period of the manual operation expires (if set).

Replacement of C-TAG in a packet with original C-TAG

This functionality allows replacing a default TAG, in output on the basis of the values of the port in input,
to an already tagged packet in input.
To implement this function, the operator has to associate, in the row present in VLAN Table Unit (VTU)
relevant to port default, Untagged on the LAN port in input and Tagged on the Lan port in output.
Necessary conditions are:
• The ports in input and in output is configured to Fallback or Secure.

134 WEB LCT ALFOplus - Release 1.2 - MN.00281.E - 004


• In VLAN table, a VLAN is configured equal to the parameter Default Vid of the port in input (value
of VID which will be written), defined as unmodified for the port in input and tagged for the port
in output

The TAG replaced in the packet in output from the switch will be composed by:
• Default VID of the input port which the packet comes from
• Default Pbit of the input port which the packet comes from, if 802.1p is disabled
• Origin Pbit (possibly re-mapped) of the packet in input, if 802.1p is enabled (or remapping is
enable)

Addition of S-TAG (QinQ – Double Tag) in a packet with C-TAG

This functionality allows adding a second TAG (S-TAG) in output to an already tagged packet in input, on
the basis of the values of the port in input.
Necessary conditions are:
• The input ports of the local switch are configured in Fallback and the output ports of remote
switch in Secure Provider.
• In VLAN table, is configured a VLAN equal to the parameter Default Vid of the port in input, de-
fined as Unmodified for the input port and Tagged for the port in output
The S-TAG added to the packet in output from the switch will be composed by:
• Ethernet Type defined in Ethernet Switch QinQ Eth type (default 0x9100)
• Default VID of the input port which the packet comes from.
• Default Pbit of the input port which the packet comes from, if 802.1p is disabled
• Origin Pbit (possibly re-mapped) of the packet in input if 802.1p is enabled (or remapping is
enable)
Notes:
• When the Switch works at S-TAG level, C-TAG is left unchanged.

Analysing the priority

The equipment allows analysing the priority at level 2, according to the standard 802.1p (values 0…7), or
at level 3 (PTOS/DSCP field). In direction “LAN ports -> Radio port” (internal port of Ethernet Switch) the
priority of MPLS is analysed too.
The priority standard can be modified by the user and can be different for each Ethernet port.

MAC Table

The MAC Table is a table created by the Ethernet Switch to keep trace of the reachability of the equipment
present in the network.
For the editing of the MAC Table, the Switch uses the MAC address (source) of the packets in input and the
number of the port through which a packet enters in the Switch as information source.
The source MAC of a packet in input to the Switch is subjected to Learning operation and possibly registered
in MAC Table.
The destination MAC of a packet in input to the Switch is subjected to search operation. If it is found in
MAC Table as source MAC of another user, the port associated to it is used as destination of the considered
traffic.
If the destination MAC Address is not present in the MAC Table, the Switch transmits the frame on all its
own interfaces, excluding only that where the frame itself has been received.
A MAC address stored in the table is automatically deleted from the table itself if not used within a given
time period (Aging Time).

The address learning in MAC Table is usually automatic.


ALFOplus equipment allow enabling/disabling the learning of Source MAC Addresses according to different
criteria select able by the user:

WEB LCT ALFOplus - Release 1.2 - MN.00281.E - 004 135


1.Automatic learning on a single MAC Table.
2.Automatic learning on different MAC Tables indicized by:
a. Native VID of a VLAN 802.1Q, if the input port is in Fallback or Secure and the considered VLAN
is registered in VLAN Table Unit (VTU).
b. Port default VID, if the incoming traffic is Untagged or, if tagged, the option 802.1Q is disabled
on the considered port or if the native VID of the incoming traffic is NOT registered in VTU. In
practice, in this condition the partition of MAC Table is made on port basis.
3.Learning disabled; in this condition MAC Table is not used.

The learning on VID basis is common to all the ports and the option is select able at global level.
The learning on port basis can be selected independently for every different LAN port.
The automatic learning on a single MAC Table and the possible disabling of Learning can be selected on the
single external ports (LAN) and internal port (Radio).

If options a. and b. are selected at the same time, option a. has priority.

Via application, it is possible:


• Delete the content of the MAC Table on the equipment.
• Define the validity period of the addresses stored in the MAC Table of the equipment (parameter
MAC Addr. Aging Time).
• Define if the learning of the Source Addresses must be made on a common MAC Table or on
specific partitions for every single VID registered in VLAN Table Unit (VTU) (parameter MAC
Learning Vid basis).
• Enable/disable the automatic learning of MAC Address within the VTU for every single port of
the Ethernet Switch and, if enabled, to define if this learning must be made on a single MAC
Table common to the whole Switch or on a partition specific for the port (parameter MAC Learn-
ing).

port

User Profile | Verify: Monitor, Read Only, Read & Write. Modify: Station Operator, System

WARNING In ALFOplus equipment, the option Fallback set for the internal port (Radio port) automatically
inserts, in every packets in output from the Radio port, a proprietary Tag which identifies the source LAN
port, so that all the advanced operation foreseen for ALFOplus can be executed in selective mode.
The considered Tag will be automatically removed by the corresponding remote Radio port.

WEB LCT ALFOplus - Release 1.2 - MN.00281.E - 004 181


The proprietary Tag which identifies the LAN port is not inserted if the modality Secure is set, because the
traffic source is implicitly known observing the VLAN’s enabled in VTU Table.

1. Select Base Band > Port A (Enh.).

2. Select the 802.1Q Management tab.


The Ingress Filtering Check parameter indicates, if active, the control of Tag Vlan Id on the messages
in input from the port:
• Fallback (Provider Enable). Packets are not discarded if the VLAN, which the packets belong to,
is not registered in VLAN Table Unit (VTU).
If VID of incoming packet is registered in VTU, it can be forwarded only on the ports belonging
to the VLAN’s registered in VTU and included in VLAN on port basis.
If VID of incoming packet is NOT registered in VTU, it can be forwarded only on the ports includ-
ed in VLAN on port basis.
• Secure (Provider Disable). VID must be contained in VLAN Table Unit (VTU) and the input pot
must be member of this VLAN, otherwise the packet is discarded.
A packet can exit from the ports belonging to the VLAN registered in VTU and are included in
VLAN on port basis.
For each configuration (selection of the value Fallback and Secure) the table of Port Based VLAN must
be ALWAYS configured even if the traffic management is executed only on Tag base (see Verify/modify
the ports through which the messages in input from the internal port).
If you wish to obtain a bidirectional traffic routed according the Vlan table, the control of the Tag 802.1Q
(Fallback or Secure) must be activated on all the ports.

of a transmitted good packet.
• Frame Sent. Number of transmitted frames. This counter is increased once for every trans-
mitted good packet.
• Dropped Frame (or Event). Total number of events (frames) in which packets were dropped
by the probe due to lack of resources. This value is not necessarily the absolute number of
discarded packets, as it represents only the number of times that this condition occurred af-
ter the exhaustion of the memory resources; the packets can be discarded also for other
causes.
• CRC Err. (CRC Align Errors). Total number of packets received that had a length of between
64 and n (parameter Max Packet Size, it can be set to 1522 or 2048) octets with bad Frame

The meaning of Internal Priority refers to its association with the possible manageable priorities
(802.1p, TOS/DSCP...) and the corresponding selected queue.
If the Select Group parameter cannot be changed, this means that the supervision system NMS5UX/
NMS5UX-B/NMS5LX has activated the RMon count at service level.

If one of the external port is selected, the following counters are displayed in the Counters column:
• Dropped Frame. Total number of frames in which packets were dropped by the probe due to lack
of resources. This value is not necessarily the absolute number of discarded packets, as it rep-
resents only the number of times that this condition occurred after the exhaustion of the mem-
ory resources; the packets can be discarded also for other causes.
• Received Frame. Number of received correct frames. This counter is increased once for every
good packet (Unicast + Multicast + Broadcast) received.
• Received Byte. Total number of received bytes relevant to correct packets. This counter is in-
creased once for every data octet of good packets (Unicast + Multicast + Broadcast) received.
• 64 (Rx) Byte. Total number of packets received that were 64 octets in length.
• 65 to 127 (Rx) Byte. Total number of packets received that were between 65 and 127 octets in
length inclusive.

the specific priority.
The value of the each counter refers to the moment when the relevant port is selected or the context
is updated. To update the data, press Refresh.

The counter:
• Total Dropped Frames indicates the total number of frames in which packets were dropped by
the probe due to lack of resources. This value is not necessarily the absolute number of discard-
ed packets, as it represents only the number of times that this condition occurred after the ex-
haustion of the memory resources; the packets can be discarded also for other causes. Press
Refresh Dropped Frame to update the value.
Parameter available only for the LANs of the Switch.
• Total Transmitted Frames indicates the total number of transmitted frames. Press Refresh

Implementation of the RMon standard in the equipment managed by WEB LCT

ALFOplus80 equipment implements the RMon standard with the modalities described here below:
RMon Standard
Outline on the operation of RMon standard
Management from Web LCT of the statistics counters foreseen by RMON standard
Ethernet counters (RMon)

RMon Standard

RMon (Remote Monitoring) is a standard whose function is providing a set of services of statistics count,
monitoring and alarm report with reference to the activity of a LAN network.
These services are defined in terms of MIB (Management Information Base) group described in the docu-
ment RFC2819 - Remote Network Monitoring Management Information Base, which must be read for any
further detail.

Outline on the operation of RMon standard

The RMon standard is based on two components: an agent (RMon probe) and a client (remote management
station).
The agent saves the data within its own RMon tables present on the network devices (equipment, routers,
etc.). The RMon probes can see only the traffic flowing through themselves and therefore are located on
each (internal/external) port of the Ethernet Switch of the device to monitor.
The remote management station communicates with the RMon agent to obtain and correlate the RMon da-
ta. Generally, the station is equipped with an interface (graphic or textual) which allows the display and
the analysis of the collected RMon data.

Management from Web LCT of the statistics counters foreseen by RMON standard

With reference to what depicted in the previous paragraph, the RMon functionality allows the analysis of
the data collected by the probes present on each (internal/external) port of the Ethernet Switch of the
equipment in compliance with the RMon standard (RMon MIB group: History).
In order to store in the equipment and display the statistics history of a port, it is necessary to activate the
measure on the port (see Activate the collection of the statistic counters for an Ethernet port). The collec-
tion of the statistic counters on this port will remain active until when an user (WEB LCT or SCT/LMT) does
not deactivate it (see Deactivate the collection of the statistic counters for an Ethernet port).
Once the measure is activated, the probes collect the statistic data, which are stored in the RMon table of
the equipment. The storing takes place each 60 seconds (sampling range).
The equipment stores these data into a rotation buffer where, when full, the new information overwrites
the old ones (value set to 240 samples which allow storing 4 hours in the equipment).
The data relevant to the statistics are available to the user and displayed, in form of table, subdivided by
single Ethernet port (see Display the values of statistical counters of an Ethernet port).
WEB LCT displays the history of the last two hours with intervals of 1 minute.
During the count, the display of the data in the Remote Monitoring <porta Ethernet> window can be inter-
rupted. This operation does not interrupt the count, but freezes only the data present in the window. In
fact, when the data update is re-activated, the window displays the values of all the sampling ranges (up
to a maximum of 120), even those stored in the equipment while the window was freezed.

Ethernet counters (RMon)

212 WEB LCT ALFOplus - Release 1.2 - MN.00281.E - 004


The description of the counters is the same reported for the counters of the packets/bytes in input/output
from an Ethernet port (see Lan Statistics).
The only difference is the name of the counter which, in some cases, change from the RMon counters with
respect to the Lan Statistics counters.
Ethernet counters denomination (RMon) reports the correspondence of the names for the Ethernet RMon
counters.

The counter Utilization is meaningful only as RMon counter and has the following definition: estimate of
the average utilization of the port in the sampling interval expressed as hundredths of percentage.

The percentage of usage of the radio port refers to the bit rate of the port at the Switch (1Gbit/s) and not
to the available radio band.

The percentage of usage of the LAN ports instead refers to the real bit rate of the port (10Mbit/s, 100Mbit/
s or 1Gbit/s).
