1. INSTALLATION

1.1 - INTRODUCTION
This paragraph explains how to install and set up SAGEM-LINK F-H radio links.
The main topics covered are:

Unpacking the Equipment

IDU installation

Antenna installation

ODU installation

IDU to ODU coaxial cable installation

Connecting IDU to external equipment

Powering up the system

1.2 - UNPACKING THE EQUIPMENT


Verify that the items received are compliant with the packing list.
If any part of the equipment is damaged, contact SAGEM Communications for repair or
replacement instructions.
The IDU and ODU are packaged in two separate boxes. In addition, the optional items are
packaged in a separate container.
The IDU box contains the IDU equipped with one or two modems (one for 1+0 systems, two for
1+1 systems), the power supply cable and a CD-ROM including the user manual and the Pilot
software.
The ODU box contains the ODU only.
Whenever possible, save case and shipping material, in case the equipment has to be returned.

1.3 - IDU INSTALLATION


To install the IDU in a 19-inch rack:

Attach the IDU in the 19-inch rack using 6x12 stainless steel hex screws. This attachment grounds
the IDU to the earth.
Faston socket

Figure 1.1 - IDU installation

An additional grounding is possible by the use of a Faston plug (left side of the IDU). Use a 6 mm2
section yellow/green cable (minimum length required).

Note: When more than one IDU are to be mounted in the rack, it is recommended to keep a gap of 1
unit between two IDUs.

1.4 - ANTENNA INSTALLATION


Three types of antenna are available for SAGEM-LINK F-H radios:

Integrated antenna with SAGEM-LINK F-H mechanical interface (0.3 m, 0.6 m, 0.9 m, 1.2 m
or 1.8 m diameter). The ODU is directly attached on the antenna using latches. In 1+1
configuration, a coupler can be attached directly to the integrated antenna, the ODUs being
attached in the same way on the coupler.

External antenna with standard rectangular waveguide interface, which is connected to the
SAGEM-LINK F-H ODU with a flex guide.

External dual polarized antenna (frequency diversity configuration) connected by flex guides to
two ODUs.

Antennas models depend on the frequency bands:


6 GHz (6L) 5.9 - 6.4 GHz
6 GHz (6H) 6.4 - 7.1 GHz
7 GHz 7.1 - 7.7 GHz
8 GHz 7.7 - 8.5 GHz
11 GHz 10.7 - 11.7 GHz
13 GHz 12.75 - 13.25 GHz
15 GHz 14.4 - 15.35 GHz
18 GHz 17.7 - 19.7 GHz
23 GHz 21.2 - 23.6 GHz
26 GHz 24.5 - 26.5 GHz
32 GHz 31.8 - 33.4 GHz
38 GHz 37 - 39.5 GHz

Alternative antennas to those specified by Sagem Communications may be used, but they must meet
the following requirements:

Minimum gain to achieve adequate link margin,


Radiation Pattern Envelope compliant to the network and country regulations
Mechanical characteristics to meet specific site requirements (wind and frost resistance)

Note:

With some antennas, a pressurizing system is required. It is essential to observe the


manufacturer's recommendations:

y installation and connection of a pressurizing system if the antenna is connected to the ODU
with a waveguide;
y

use pressurization windows and seals to protect waveguide connections.

1.4.1 - Antenna mount


In most cases, the antenna mounts consist of tubular poles (diameter 88.9 to 114 mm).
If the antenna is installed on towers using another type of structure (e.g., square-section tower),
special mounting kits must be used for this support.
The following precautions must always be taken:
- Allow enough clearance (10) about the alignment axis. Leave also adequate space around
the ODU to allow easy mounting/dismantling.
- Make sure that nothing obstructs the link between the two antennas, even partially,
- Install a lightning rod (Franklin) and earthing.
Note: If there is an existing lightning rod, make sure that the ODU installation site is covered
by the lightning protection cone.
- Misalignment under extreme weather conditions must not exceed 20 min angle in elevation
and azimuth.

The antenna mount may be secured in different ways depending on the antenna installation site
type and environment:
- Mounting pole secured to the HEA section with back-plates or clips each side of the HRA
section,
- Mounting pole secured to a concrete base plate with threaded rods embedded in the base.
- Wall-mounted staff (attached using dowels or back-plates with threaded rods),
- Antenna mount secured directly to a tower tube (diameter 88.9 or 114 mm).

1.4.2 - Antenna Installation


Refer to the antenna manufacturer's instructions.

1.5 - ODU INSTALLATION


Depending on the configuration and on the antenna type, there are several ODU mounting
possibilities:

1.5.1 - 1+0 Configuration with integrated antenna


The ODU is directly attached to the antenna with 4 latches. It is connected to the IDU by a single
coaxial cable terminated with N connectors.

Figure 1.2 - ODU SAGEM-LINK F-H with integrated antenna

Setting the polarization:


For antennas with a circular waveguide interface (7 GHz, 8 GHz, 32 GHz or 38 GHz), polarization
setting depends only on the ODU position. For vertical polarization, make sure that the arrow on
the ODU cover is vertical, for horizontal polarization, turn the ODU 90 degrees.

Vertical polarization

Horizontal polarization

Page 13/139

If the integrated antenna has a rectangular waveguide interface (6 GHz, 11 GHz, 13 GHz, 15
GHz, 18 GHz, 23 GHz or 26 GHz), then the choice of polarization depends on the antenna
source position. Note that in this case, the large side of the waveguides, antenna side, and the
ODU must coincide.
For vertical polarization, the large side of the waveguide must be in horizontal position. ODU side,
the arrow at the back of the box must be in vertical position.
For horizontal polarization, the large side of the waveguide must be in vertical position and the
arrow on the ODU must be in horizontal position.

1.5.2 - 1+0 Configuration with pole mount and standard antenna


For standard antennas (i.e. large diameter), the ODU is mounted on a pole with a specific
mounting kit and connected to the antenna with a standard rectangular flex guide.
In this case, polarization depends on the antenna source position (vertical polarization is obtained
when the large side of the antenna waveguide is horizontal).

Figure 1.4 - ODU SAGEM-LINK F-H mounted on pole

1.5.3 - "Hot standby" 1+1 configuration with coupler and integrated antenna
In this configuration, the coupler is attached on the integrated antenna with four latches. Two
ODUs are mounted each side of the coupler with four latches. Depending on the type of coupler,
the ODUs are mounted differently. Refer to the instructions marked on the coupler.
Each ODU is connected to its modem by a coaxial cable.
As in most cases the coupler is not symmetrical, it is important to identify which ODU is
connected to the main position, and which ODU is connected to protection (standby) position.
The main and standby ODU positions are indicated on the coupler.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 14/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

Whatever the polarization, the coupler is always mounted in the same position (the ODUs must
be vertical).
The IDU has two modems connected to ODUs operating at the same frequency. The standby
transmitter is configured automatically by the software in "Mute" position.

1.5.4 - 1+1 hot standby configuration with remote mounted coupler and standard
antenna
The coupler is attached on the remote mount and connected to the standard antenna by a
rectangular flex waveguide.
The two ODUs are mounted vertically each side of the coupler, in compliance with the
instructions shown on the coupler. Each ODU is connected to its modem with a coaxial cable.
Polarization setting is done antenna side.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited
Page 15/139

It is also necessary to identify ODU cables (Main or Standby) with labels.


The IDU has two modems connected to ODUs operating at the same frequency. The standby
transmitter is configured automatically by the software in "Mute" position.

1.5.5 - 1+1 space diversity configuration with 2 antennas


This configuration is similar to "hot standby" except that the ODUs are not coupled to the same
antenna: they are located at different positions, each connected to its own antenna.
This configuration is possible with integrated or standard antennas.
The IDU has two modems connected to ODUs operating at the same frequency. The standby
transmitter is configured automatically by the software in "Mute" position.

1.5.6 - 1+1 frequency diversity configuration with remote mounts and dual
polarized antenna
In this configuration, each ODU is remote mounted on a pole and connected to an antenna
access with a flex guide. It is important to identify the cables of the ODU mounted in vertical
polarization (main) and that mounted in horizontal polarization (standby).
The IDU has two modems connected to ODUs operating at the two different frequencies. The two
transmitters transmit permanently.

1.6 - INSTALLING THE IDU TO ODU COAXIAL CABLE


Two types of cable are recommended: RG8/X (1/4") for lengths less than or equal to 80 m, and
RG8/U (3/8") for length less than or equal to 230 m. Andrew LDF4-50A cable can be used for
lengths up to 600 m. Other cables may be used, but must be compatible as regards outdoor use
(resistance to UV), losses, shielding (double or triple braid) and characteristics impedance (50
Ohm, N male straight connectors at each end).
Only connectors recommended by the cable manufacturer should be used. These connectors
must be assembled in compliance with the manufacturer's recommendations.
Since the Modem ODU access is a TNC type connector, an optional RG223/U Type stub cable
equipped with a 50 ohm angled male TNC connector at one end and a 50 ohm straight female N
connector at the other must be inserted between the cable connecting the ODU and the modem;
this cable can be ordered from SAGEM Communications (see Table 1.2 - Cable References for
SAGEM-LINK F-H).
Self-vulcanizing tape is wound around the connectors to make them water-tight.
Note: Cables must be installed in compliance with the national and local regulations of the
installation site.
Special precautions are necessary when installing cables to prevent possible damage by
lightning (regular grounding).
In 1+1 configuration, it is important to distinguish between the cable connected to the main ODU
and that connected to the standby ODU. If the cables are not labelled, it is necessary to perform a
resistance check to identify each cable.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 16/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

Disconnect the cable IDU side and short circuit the connector main ODU side (the standby ODU
connector being in open circuit). Measure the resistance of the two cables IDU side using a
multimeter. The cable to be connected on the main ODU is that with the lower resistance (now
identify the cables ODU and IDU side with a label, sticker, etc.).
Before reconnecting the IDU cables, disconnect the short circuit ODU side. Clean the connectors
if necessary and connect the cables on each ODU.
Cable Grounding
Good lightning protection is provided by grounding the antenna cable at several points. A cable
grounding kit is available on option.
The number of grounding points required mainly depends on the cable length.
Good protection is achieved with:
A grounding kit on the cable as close as possible to the ODU
A grounding kit on the cable at the building entrance
A grounding kit on the cable at the bottom of the pylon
A grounding kit every 50 meters

2.4 - LINK PRELIMINARY CONFIGURATION


2.4.1 - Setting the parameters of each IDU
The preliminary configuration of each IDU must be carried out separately at each end of the link. Once
the link is established, virtually all the parameters can be checked from the local terminal.
The parameters of the local and remote terminals must be compatible.
In order of priority, the first essential parameters to configure before establishing the link are for each
IDU:

Channel transmit frequency

Modulation type, radio channel and capacity

Link ID code

Transmission power; the Automatic Transmit Power Control (ATPC) function must be inhibited
at this stage ("OFF" position on the Pilot screen)

Note: When powering up for the first time (factory output setting), the transmitter is in "MUTE" position,
in order to avoid transmitting signals at a frequency which could disturb neighbouring links.
The transmitter should be kept in mute position until the transmit frequency, modulation and capacity
are properly configured.
When the link is not established, the Pilot screen indicates "NO REMOTE RADIO" on the right side of
the screen (see below).

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited
Page 37/139

IDU Equipment IP address

This screen will display the local terminal parameters on the left of the screen and the remote terminal
parameters on the right when the link is established.
The radio channel, modulation, capacity, Ethernet bandwidth and interleaver status are displayed at
the top of the screen. The confirm/cancel modification request is also displayed in this bar: "Confirm"
or "Cancel".
The IDU part of the screen is used to define the site name, configuration type, link ID code and to
display the bit error rate (BER) for a given counting period (1 min, 15 min or 24 h).
The Channel 1 part indicates the received signal level and the reception BER; it is used to configure
the transmit frequency and transmit power values, ATPC activation and Mute function.
The equipment LEDs and the 3 programmable relays status are also displayed on the Pilot. In
addition, the "Shelf view" button is used to display the front panel of the equipment managed.
If you are logged on as a "Super User", you can change the terminal configuration with the buttons.
Each button provides access to a specific parameter. Note that only one change at a time is allowed.
With the transmitter still in "Mute" and the ATPC "OFF", configure the following parameters:

Channel transmit frequency


Move the cursor along the Tx Freq rule
, or click on the left or right button, then
validate by clicking on "Confirm" in the top toolbar.
Use the arrows to change the frequency in steps of 250 kHz. Moving the cursor in the middle
changes the frequency in steps of 7 MHz.

The "Interleaver" configuration is described in 3.8 -.

Link ID
The link ID code is used to avoid demodulating data from another neighbouring link using the
same frequency which could disturb the receiver. Link ID Codes of the local and remote
terminals must be the same. This code consists of a number from 1 to 255 chosen by the
customer.

Transmit power
The transmitter's "Mute" position is set to "OFF".
Adjust the transmit power value as planned in the design calculation, keeping ATPC "OFF".
, or click on the left or right button, then
Move the cursor along the Tx Power rule
validate.
Use the arrows to change the power in steps of 0.5 dB. Moving the cursor in the middle
changes the power in steps of 2.5 dB.
Important: To avoid saturating the transmitter, the Pilot software automatically prevents
power values greater than the maximum allowed for the current modulation. Refer to the
values in APPENDIX 1 Transmission characteristics .

The local terminal is now correctly configured. Repeat the procedure for the remote terminal in order
to establish the link.

2.4.2 - Antenna alignment


Antenna alignment is performed with both terminals operating, in normal weather conditions. The
received signal level (RSL) can be checked using the voltage available on the ODU BNC
connector.
A typical curve of RSL voltage against RSL at ODU input is given below. The RSL voltage is
directly proportional to the RSL expressed in dBm.

Note: RSL is measured at ODU antenna port. For 1+1 configurations involving a coupler, the
coupler losses must be taken into account to determine the RSL at antenna access.
Optimum alignment is achieved when main antenna lobe is aligned with the remote antenna.
During alignment, it is important to distinguish between the main lobe and the side lobes by
rotating the antenna around the maximum RSL value. Note that there is around 25 dB difference
between side lobes and main lobes (i.e. about 1.5 V on the RSL voltage).

Bad alignment

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 40/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

The expected RSL was determined during the link budget calculation. This level depends on the
power of the remote terminal, the frequency, the antennas gain and the hop length.
Antenna alignment is carried out on each antenna using the following procedure:
1- Check that the remote terminal transmitter is on, with the planned parameters (frequency,
power, speed, modulation). Check that the ATCP is off and that the remote terminal power is
such that the RSL does not exceed 20 dBm.
2- Remove the cap on the ODU BNC connector and connect a voltmeter.
3- Slowly rotate the antenna in the azimuth direction (horizontal) and find the maximum voltage.
If the voltage is around 4.5 V, reduce the remote transmit power to avoid saturation.
4- Slowly rotate the antenna in the elevation direction (vertical) and find the maximum voltage.
Record the measured voltage.
5- When the maximum voltage has been found, tighten all the bolts. Check that the voltage has
not changed after tightening. Replace the protective cap on the BNC connector.
6- Compare the RSL obtained with the expected RSL. If the difference between the two values
exceeds 5 dB, readjust antenna alignment and polarization setting and check that there are
no obstacles on the radio path.
In principle, if the parameters have been entered correctly and if the antennas have been aligned
correctly, the link should be established (no screen with "NO REMOTE RADIO" message) and
the main Pilot screen should display the remote terminal parameters.
In 1+0 and 1+1 configuration, the typical screens are as follows:

Receive signal levels should be similar on both ends of the link (same transmit power).

Figure 2.3 - Main Pilot Screen for a 1+0 configuration

Note: If the parameters of the two terminals are correct, and if the main Pilot screen displays "NO
REMOTE RADIO", the antennas will probably have to be realigned.

Note: There may still be some alarms at this stage.
In case of "GE" or "tributary" alarm, check the access configuration and connections.
If there are other alarms, or if the link does not work, refer to the troubleshooting paragraph ( 5 in this
manual)
Note any discrepancies in the Commissioning Form at the end of paragraph 2.

2.5 - TESTS AND MEASUREMENTS REQUIRED


After installing and setting the link, check correct operation by performing the following tests and
measurements:

Frequency Scan at ODU input


Received Signal Level
Gigabit Ethernet transmission test
2 Mbit/s channel test (optional)
Wayside access test (optional)
Alarm In/Out test (optional)
1+1 switching check (optional)
BER measurement

Measurement equipment required:

Gigabit Ethernet tester


2 Mbit/s bit error rate analyzer (optional)
Digital multimeter

A SAGEM-LINK F-H Commissioning Form is provided at the end of paragraph 2 in order to record
the results of the tests carried out together with any remarks made during installation and
commissioning.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A

Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

2.5.1 - Frequency Scan


The Pilot software can be used to take an automatic measurement of the spectrum around the receive
frequency without the need for external instruments. The measurement must be taken locally,
successively at each end of the link.
Measurement is carried out with the local transmitter off (the Pilot software automatically sets the local
transmitter to "mute", to avoid sending signals which could disturb other receivers.
After acquisition, the spectrum is displayed graphically. This measurement reveals the presence of
any interferers. A record of this measurement is stored in the IDU flash memory and can be consulted
afterwards using the Pilot or via the network management.
In order to check interferer level at the received frequency, the remote transmitter must be switched off
during the test.
The "Frequency scan" procedure is described in 4.23 Note in the commissioning form the presence of any interferers at the received frequency as well as
on the adjacent channels (first adjacent and second adjacent).
Important: do not run a frequency scan from a remote site

2.5.2 - Receive signal level


Under normal weather conditions, the receive signal level depends on the following parameters:

Remote Transmit Power (tolerance: 2 dB)

Local and remote antenna gains (tolerance: 1 dB per antenna)

Free space path attenuation depending on hop length and frequency

Coupling and connection losses for a 1+1 system

Compare the actual received signal level displayed on the main screen of the Pilot software, with the
expected signal level:
The following tolerances must be taken into account:
2 dB for the transmit power
1 dB for the gain of each antenna
3 dB for the received level measurement displayed on the Pilot
0.5 dB for 1+1 coupler losses
We see that in the worst case, for a 1+0 type system, the maximum uncertainty is 7 dB (2 1 1
3): In practice, the typical uncertainty to be considered is 5 dB.
So, if the difference between the receive level displayed by the Pilot and the receive level expected by
the link budget calculation is within the tolerance 5 dB, the installation is considered to be correct.
A difference of more than 5 dB, however, indicates a problem such as incorrect antenna alignment,
a propagation problem or bad polarization on one of the two antennas.
First check the antenna alignment and polarization. If the problem remains, refer to the
troubleshooting guide in paragraph 5 and replace the defective element.
Record the ODU RSL values of the link on the commissioning form.

2.5.3 - Giga Ethernet transmission test


This test is carried out to check for correct transmission of Gigabit Ethernet signals.
The test must be carried out on each port used.
It is used to test Ethernet transmission over the entire link.
A Gigabit Ethernet tester is required to take the measurement. The measurement block diagram is
given below:

Tx / Rx loopback
Gigabit Ethernet
tester

The Gigabit Ethernet tester is connected to a GE port of the local terminal. On the remote terminal, the
corresponding GE output is looped back on the input (by a fibre in case of optical interface or an
"RJ45 plug" in case of electrical interface). The "RJ45 plug" consists in connecting wires 1 and 3
together and wires 2 and 6 together.
The test consists in measuring the throughput according to RFC 2544 for long enough to check the
quality of the link.
The test will be declared positive is no packets are lost and if the throughput measured is not less than
the limit specified. This limit depends mainly on the configuration: modulation, radio band and number
of associated optional E1s.
Choice of transmission configuration

Define the configuration for each end of the link: modulation, radio channel, number of active
E1 tributaries (optional).

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 44/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

On the local IDU:


The tester must be connected to the GE port to be tested. It is configured as follows:

Number of Gigabit Ethernet ports to be considered: 1


The Ethernet tester is connected to GE port #n of the IDU under test, where n = 1 or 2.
GE port #n of the IDU must be configured in "Enable" mode.
Configure the tester so that it takes into account the type of SFP module installed on the
IDU: electrical or optical. If the operator uses optical SFP modules, auto negotiation
must be activated on the tester.

Define a Unicast flow to be transmitted:


Define the size of this flow. Standard RFC2544 recommends the following sizes: 64,
128, 256, 512, 1024, 1280, 1518 bytes. SAGEM-LINK F-H also supports frame sizes of
up to 1760 bytes. Choose one of these sizes.
Define the test duration.
The throughput defined by standard RFC2544 characterizes the maximum data rate that
can be transmitted without losses. This parameter depends on the transmission
configuration (see table in APPENDIX 2) and the associated Ethernet features (e.g. QoS).
Define a throughput (generally called ILOAD on an Ethernet tester) less than or equal to
the throughput specified for the configuration defined.

On the remote IDU:

Make the physical loopback on GE port #n of the remote equipment.

Choice of Ethernet configuration:


Configure each Ethernet port of the equipment as follows:

QoS mode : "Disable"


Port mode: "Enable" for port #n being tested (local and remote equipment).
Jumbo mode: "Disable".
Configure the interface according to the SFP module type.

required, which must be set with the following parameters:

BER test
2 Mbit/s
Internal clock
PRBS: 215-1.
120 Ohm balanced, or 75 Ohm unbalanced interface depending on IDU configuration.

All channels designed to transport traffic must be tested one by one:

Click on one of the "TRIB" connectors Shelf view or use the menu
"Configuration / E1 Tributaries / Local"
Check that the channel under test is configured in normal mode (N), in service (blank
button) and no loopback (blank button).
All other tributaries should be unconnected and configured as inverted (I)

There should be a "tributary" alarm, the "Trib" LED of the equipment and its image on the
Pilot screen must be red.

Connect the transmission analyzer to the 2 Mbit/s input, respecting the impedance selected
in the IDU. The tributary alarm should now be cleared.

Click on the "Loopback" button corresponding to the tributary under test. Select a remote
loopback. See procedure in 3.4 Check on the transmission analyzer that no errors occurred for one minute

When the test is finished, disconnect the cable, change the alarm in invert mode (I) and
remove the remote loopback.

Repeat this test on each 2 Mbit/s channel used on the site.

Record the results on the commissioning form

2.5.5 - Wayside test (optional)


The same procedure is used to test the Wayside access and the main Gigabit Ethernet accesses.
A 10/100BaseT Ethernet tester is required to perform this test. As when testing the GE ports, make a
physical loopback on the remote terminal RJ45 access by connecting pins 1 and 3 together and 2 and
6 together.
The test consists in checking that the transmission has no losses on this access at the specified
throughput.
Note: The throughout is the same irrespective of the configuration (modulation / radio channel).
Tester configuration:

Number of Ethernet ports to be considered: 1


Configure the tester in 10/100 Mbps auto negotiated mode.
Define a unicast flow of size n bytes. (64 n 1760).
Depending on the size of the Ethernet frame to be transmitted, define an ILOAD less than
or equal to the specified throughput in the following table, e.g.:
For a flow of 64 bytes, the maximum throughput is 1.25 Mb/s.
For a flow of 1518 bytes, the maximum throughput is 1 Mb/s

Check that there are no Wayside alarms on the equipment (Wayside LED green)

Start the test (frame loss): check that no frames are lost.

2.5.6 - Alarm relay test (optional)


SAGEM-LINK F-H can manage 5 local external alarms and 5 remote external alarms (image of the
5 external alarms of the remote IDU).
If some external alarms are to be managed, it is necessary first to configure them (see
3.6 -).
SAGEM-LINK F-H includes 3 fully programmable relay outputs. Internal or external alarms can be
assigned to each relay.
If alarm relays and/or external alarm inputs are used on the site, the tests described below must be
carried out to check correct operation.
These tests must be carried out on each terminal. Before starting the tests, check that no faults are
displayed by the equipment.
It is not possible to simulate all possible alarms without opening the equipment: for example,
simulating a Tx frequency alarm would require opening the ODU and disturbing the transmission
synthesizer phase loop.
However some alarms can be simulated simply, without having to carry out any operations on the
equipment.
2.5.6.1 Simulating an IDU Alarm
An IDU alarm can be easily simulated by entering a wrong Link ID code in the local terminal. This
wrong ID Code generates an IDU alarm, but does not affect the radio transmission. Apply the following
procedure:

Switch off the local terminal power supply and disconnect the coaxial cable to the ODU
Power up the IDU (ODU not connected) and change the Link ID Code of the local terminal
Switch off the power supply of the local terminal and connect the ODU to the IDU
Switch on the IDU Once the IDU is properly initialized an IDU alarm should be displayed:
front panel "idu" LED, and its representation on the Pilot screen must be red.

Once the test is finished, do not forget to put back the correct Link ID code using the same procedure.

Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited
Page 49/139

2.5.6.2 Simulating an ODU Alarm


An ODU alarm can be generated by removing the cable to the ODU.
Caution: switch off the power supply before disconnecting the cable.
The equipment "ODU" LED and its image on the Pilot screen must be red.
2.5.6.3 Simulating a Gigabit Ethernet Alarm
Two alarms can be easily obtained:
Take the SFP module out of its housing: an "SFP Presence" alarm is triggered; the equipment "GbE
Lnk/Act" LED goes out, the "GE" LED of the Pilot screen and the "SFP Presence" LED in the alarm
detail becomes red.
Put back the SFP module without the link cable: an "SFP LOS" alarm is triggered; the equipment
"GbE Lnk/Act" LED stays lit green, the "GE" LED of the Pilot screen and the "SFP LOS" LED in the
alarm detail becomes red.
2.5.6.4 Simulating a tributary alarm
A tributary alarm is easily obtained by changing the configuration from normal (N) to invert (I), or vice
versa.
The equipment "trib" LED and its image on the Pilot screen must be red.
When the test is finished, do not forget to restore the initial configuration.
2.5.6.5 Simulating an RSL alarm
First check that the ATPC is OFF.
An RSL alarm can be simulated by reducing the remote terminal power and choosing a suitable RSL
alarm threshold, e.g. -60 dBm.
Decrease the remote transmit power in order to have a receive level below -60 dBm. Take care not to
drop below the link operating threshold, since the link cannot be restored from the local terminal.
The equipment "RSL" LED and its image on the Pilot screen must be red.
When the test is finished, do not forget to restore the initial settings.
2.5.6.6 Testing an external alarm
To simulate a custom alarm, use the Pilot menu Configuration / Alarms / Local - IDU tab.
Depending on the alarm convention, select "N" if a closed loop corresponds to the alarm state, or "I" if
an open loop corresponds to the alarm state.
In order to test a specific external alarm, first disable all other external alarms.
Identify the pin of the 15-pin DB connector corresponding to the alarm input. Assuming that the alarm
is in "N" configuration, connect this pin to ground and observe the changes on the front panel of the
IDU and on the Pilot screens.
The "ext" LED on the IDU front panel and its image on the Pilot screen must be red.
Check that the alarm disappears when the pin is disconnected from the ground.
2.5.6.7 Testing the alarm outputs (relays)
A multimeter is required for this test, to check continuity between the relay contacts.
The 3 contacts of each relay are available on the 15-pin DB connector (see Figure 1.11 and
Figure 1.12)
When the IDU is not powered, NC is connected to the common point of the relay.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 50/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

When the IDU is powered and when there is no alarm:


NO is connected to common
NC is in open circuit
When the IDU is powered up and there is an alarm on the relay under test
NC is connected to Common
NO is in open circuit
Simulate various alarms and test the operation of the relays as explained above.

2.5.7 - Testing 1+1 configuration (optional)


1+1 systems require additional tests compared with unprotected systems. These tests are carried out
to check that all parts are operational and that the switching system operates correctly.
These tests must be carried out on both ends of the link and require the presence of personnel in each
station.
In hot standby mode, only one transmitter is active, the other is muted. In frequency diversity mode,
the two transmitters operate permanently, transmitting at two different frequencies, and only the
receivers are switched.
In 1+1 hot standby configuration, since asymmetric couplers are used (6 dB), the default system
configuration is revertive automatic switching.
In this mode, the transmitter and receiver of the main channel are given priority, operation being
switched over to the standby transmitter or receiver in case of fault. When the fault disappears, the
system switches back to the main transmitter or receiver.
In the figures below, the active transmitter and receiver are written in bold.
When the link is in operation and there are no faults, the configuration is as follows:
(note: L = local, R= remote).

From the local terminal, connect a BER analyzer on one of the 2 Mbit/s channels and make a remote
loopback for this channel (see procedure in section 3.4 -). If there is no E1 installed, make a Gigabit
Ethernet test as specified in section 2.5.3). Check that there are no errors (or no frame loss) for at
least a minute (nominal RSL conditions, ATPC OFF).
From the local terminal, in "Super User" mode, select menu "Maintenance/Tx/Rx Forcing" to access
the manual switching command (refer to 4.21 -).
Select the standby receiver by clicking on the Rx2 box, and validate.

If revertive automatic switching is on, select automatic switching during transmission and reception by
clicking on the "Tx Auto" and "Rx Auto" boxes.
The system should return to the main ODU (transmitter and receiver). Errors are generated in case of
a transmitter switch.
If revertive automatic switching is off, switch on to the main channel manually then click on the "Tx
Auto" and "Rx Auto" boxes.
The system is now in automatic mode, the orange maintenance LED is off.
Use the same procedure from the remote terminal.

2.5.8 - Quality measurement


The link quality can either be measured on a Gigabit Ethernet access or on one or more chained E1
accesses (if the option is installed).
Since the bit error rates on the Gigabit Ethernet train and on the E1s are the same, it is simpler to carry
out this test on an E1 tributary of the option is installed.
The test is either carried out with the arrangement as described in paragraph 2.5.3 - or that described in
paragraph 2.5.4 -.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 52/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

For a 1+1 link, only the quality on the main ODUs in automatic switching mode will be tested.
The duration of the BER test depends on the type of network and the criticality of the links:
Generally:
30 minutes for low capacity links (GSM, Wifi, etc.)
24 hours for medium and high capacity links.
Other durations could be considered upon request, but this will require Sagem approval.

2.5.9 - Recording configuration information


The configuration information can be recorded by the Pilot into files. These files must be attached to
the commissioning form

QoS mode : the user can choose to activate or not the management of the quality of the service
"QoS".
- check "Disable" : authorize the passage of all the Ethernet frames on the radio port without
treatment ; this mode uses the maximum of the radio bandwidth.
This mode makes inaccessible the configuration menus of QoS (grayed menus)
- check "Enable" : it is then necessary to configure the quality of service (see 3.3.2 -) ; in this
mode one activates a mechanism of shaping which results in to reduce the throughput passing by
the radio of 6% maximum (case of frames of 64 bytes).
Port Id: select the port to be configured
Jumbo frame mode: check "Enable" if Ethernet frames are longer than 1760 bytes.
Jumbo frame mode is guaranteed for frames up to 10 000 bytes for 1 active port or 8192 bytes
for 2 active ports.
This mode does not allow to manage the QoS (grayed menu).
At the time of the mode switch-over Jumbo frame, only the frames treated in Very

- User priority: the priority assigned to the frames entering the GE port is based on the priority
field contained in these frames (User priority).
A configurable table gives the mapping between the User priority (UP) field and the priority
used within the S-Vlan (service priority)
For frames which do not contain this information, the priority defined by default in the "Default
QoS" field (Low, Normal, High or Very high) is assigned.
3.3.2.2 Topology mode : EVPLINE
The "EVPLINE" mode allows to offer private services of transport of level 2 between different GE
ports of a network equipment.
SAGEM-LINK F-H equipment can be connected to other transport equipment such as for example
equipment of ADR range. Connection is carried out by GE ports which will have been configured in
NNI (Network to Network Interface).
The GE ports of the customers are configured in UNI (User to Network Interface).
The transport services or S_VLAN allow to use physical shared means.
The assignment of the data flows, resulting from the GE ports, to a specified S_VLAN is
configurable.
The data flows of the customer can be differentiated thanks to tag C_VLAN contained in the
Ethernet frames.

Ethernet Type : defines the value of the Ethernet type field of the S-VLAN tagged frames which
forwards on the transport network ; the default value is 0x88A8.
Port x : defines if the GE interface is connected to a customer (UNI) or to the transport network
(NNI)
VLAN configuration : defines the Ethernet flows and their assignment to one S-VLAN service
Click on "Add" in order to add and define an Ethernet flow ; the nature of informations depends on

Click on the corresponding button to change the settings.

AIS insert on BER: when this button is ON, an AIS is transmitted when the BER is greater than
10-3.

Monitoring:

If the access is not connected, configure it as invert "I". In this case, no alarm is generated
since there is no signal at the input. However, if the access is configured as invert, a
tributary alarm is generated if a signal is present.

If the access is used for traffic, it must be configured as normal "N". In this mode, an alarm
is generated if there are no signals on the access.

Service: In normal operation, select "blank" button (active). If "S" is selected, an AIS is returned
locally on the reception access of the channel concerned. Note that, in this case, no AISs are
transmitted to the remote terminal.

Loopback: click on a button on the loopback line to display the screen providing access to the
various loopbacks: The screen can also be displayed from the "Maintenance / Loopbacks"

on one of the "Relay" LEDs on the Pilot front panel, or by clicking on the "Alarms In/Out" connector
on the Shelf view. Six tabs are available to configure the site alarms, their severity, their assignment
to a relay and their transmission to the manager.
Whenever a box is checked, an "Apply" window is displayed: click to validate the configuration.
A view of each of the six tabs is given for information or to indicate a special configuration. The
meaning of the alarms is described in 5.5.1 -.

3.6.1 - General parameters


On all tabs, each alarm can:
be assigned to one or more relays if the corresponding boxes are checked; the default
assignment of the relays is given in 3.6.8 3 relay outputs are available on the "Alarms IN/OUT" connector. These relays are fully
programmable: Internal local alarms or external (local or remote) alarms can be assigned to each
relay.
Relay operation can be enabled or disabled by checking or unchecking the "Enable relays" box in
"General Parameters"; in the default configuration, the box is checked.
If an alarm is generated the names of the alarm and of the associated relay are written in red.
Click on a Relay box to check or uncheck all boxes in the alarm column in one go.

Define a severity level: "None", "Warning", "Minor", "Major" or "Critical" by checking the
corresponding box.
The default alarm severities are indicated in the tables of 5.5.1 -

Check the corresponding box "Enable Trap", if you want to send the SNMP trap to network
managers. The default configuration is "box checked" for all alarms except for "Link Status"
and "Rx Frame".

The traps sent to the network manager can be filtered according to the severity: check the
"Disable traps with severity" box corresponding to the severity level you do not want to send the
trap to the manager, for all alarms configured at this level; the default configuration is "box
unchecked".
The list of managers authorized to manage the equipment traps can be completed by clicking on
"Trap Managers". The maximum number of authorized managers in a network is 10.

3.6.2 - "IDU" tab

SAGEM-LINK F-H can manage up to 5 external alarm inputs available locally. These signals are
connected to the "Alarms IN/OUT" connector. The pinout of this connector is given in 1.7.2.3.
These five alarms can only be configured locally and named; they will be either:

"D": the alarm is disabled

"N": the alarm is configured as normal; there will be no alarms if the corresponding input
on the connector is in open circuit, and an alarm will be generated if this input is shorted to
the ground.

"I": the alarm is configured as invert; the alarm state corresponds to open circuit.

SAGEM-LINK F-H can also display locally the 5 alarm inputs from the remote terminal by checking
the corresponding box; the "ext" LED of the local IDU will be red.
If the status of any activated external alarm changes, the "Ext" LED on the IDU front panel is lit red.

3.7 - CONFIGURING THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMIT POWER CONTROL (ATPC)


ATPC is used to increase the density of a network by allowing frequency reuse. This process
consists in automatically reducing the transmit power of each transmitter, while keeping good
transmission.
ATPC must not be active during antenna installation and commissioning.
ATPC settings depend on the structure of the network (frequency re-use, radio interferers, link
margin). The operator must define 3 main parameters:

Maximum ATPC transmit power

Minimum ATPC transmit power

ATPC reception threshold

The minimum and maximum powers must be within the transmitter power ranges, and the
difference between maximum and minimum power must not exceed 20 dB.
The ATPC reception threshold must be within the range -50 dBm to -80 dBm.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited
Page 73/139

The ATPC process consists in reducing transmit power as low as possible within the specified range
while ensuring that there are no transmission errors and that the received level on the remote
terminal remains greater than or equal to the specified threshold.
To enable ATPC, click on the ATPC button and set it to "ON".
ATPC parameters are configured via the Configuration / ATPC / Local or Remote / Channel 1 or
Channel 2 menu.

Enter the three values and validate with the Apply button.

Note: Use of ATPC with 1+1 Hot Standby Systems


When ATPC is used in a 1+1 system with coupler, the ATPC parameters are defined at antenna
access. The power values entered in the above dialog box must take into account the coupler loss.
These values are defined only for the main ODU.
Example: If the ODU can deliver +25 dBm and the loss of a 6 dB coupler on the main path is 2 dBm,
the maximum power at antenna access will be +23 dBm for the main ODU.

3.8 - CONFIGURING THE INTERLEAVER


In the default configuration, interleaver is disabled (OFF) in order to minimize data transfer time
(latency).
However, when the network does not require a low latency, error correction is improved with the
interleaver ons.
To configure the interleaver, double click on the parameter bar at the top of the screen
to open the following window.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 74/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

Click on the ON/OFF button to change the interleaver configuration and validate. The interleaver
configuration must be the same on both terminals of the link. So, it is necessary to configure first the
remote terminal, then the local terminal.

3.9 - SPECIFIC CONFIGURATIONS FOR 1+1 SYSTEMS


Revertive Automatic Switching
This option gives priority to the transmitter and receiver of the main channel in 1+1 operation.
When this box is checked "ON", the transmitter and the receiver in traffic are those from the main
ODU. If there is a fault on the main channel, traffic is switched over onto the standby channel. When
the fault on the main channel disappears, the system switches the traffic back to the main channel.
Click on the protection button of the Pilot screen or open the "Configuration / Protection / Local or
Remote" menu to display the following screen:

When the revertive automatic switching option is not selected, transmit switch and receive switch
positions are free. The system stays in the current position until a fault appears.
Note that the transmit and receive switches are independent.

CHANNEL / LOCAL OR REMOTE MENU
4.6.1 - Description of the Management network
SAGEM-LINK F-H equipment can be operated via an SNMP type management network, via the Pilot
software, and an SNMP manager (IONOS NMS).
The equipment can be managed via the integrated network management interface acting as an IP
router:

MGMT1
Ethernet

MGMT2

Switch
L2

Network
management
interface

TSL/PPP (to remote IDU)

The router has two ports:


- The IDU management Ethernet port (MGMT1 or MGMT2), associated with a MAC address.
This MAC address is unique and non modifiable. An IP address is associated with this MAC address.
- The radio port (TSL) communicating with the remote IDU via a PPP type protocol. To make the
management system easier to implement, the IP addresses of these ports are managed internally and
are transparent for the user.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 84/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

To make the terminals easier to identify, a virtual IP address is defined for each terminal (terminal =
IDU+ODU). This address will be used by the Pilot software and the network manager to identify the
terminal. This address is independent of the IDU Ethernet port address and must not belong to the
same subnet.
This address is called the Management IP Address.
The IDU Ethernet port IP address does not operate with SNMP, since the equipment always answers
with the management address.
A SAGEM-LINK F-H equipment can be connected via the IDU Ethernet interface to another
equipment, whether or not SAGEM-LINK F-H.
To route the datagrams on the various network elements, the routes to reach these elements must be
defined.
A route is defined for an IP network; e.g. 135.11 if the network mask is 255.255.0.0.
The network entities can exchange their routes using the RIP and OSPF protocols.
On IDU PPP interfaces, the OSPF protocol is systematically implemented.
On IDU Ethernet interfaces, the user have to define whether or not to involve RIP or OSPF protocols.
Static routes and a default gateway can be also be defined for each IDU.

This menu is described in 3.3 -.

4.9 - CONFIGURATION / PROTECTION / LOCAL OR REMOTE MENU


SAGEM-LINK F-H IDU is common to the 1+0 and 1+1 configurations. The hardware difference is that
the 1+0 IDU uses only one modem while the 1+1 IDU contains two.
There are two ways to establish a 1+1 link:
- On first installation: with the two modems inserted in the IDU each modem being connected its ODU
a cable. Switch on both modems to power up the terminal.
- On a 1+0 link already established: there is no need to disconnect the link; install Modem2/ODU2 and
switch on the second Modem.
Then, to switch from one configuration to the other, use the Pilot software as described below.

Click on the protection button of the Pilot screen or open the "Configuration / Protection /
Local or Remote" menu to display the following screen:

Select the box corresponding to the new configuration and validate.

If the changeover is refused, there may be a hardware problem or the two ODUs may not be
compatible with the required 1+1 mode (e.g. different ODUs in 1+1 HSB, etc.)

Perform these operations on the local and remote equipment.


Note: It is important to have both terminals in the same configuration. Avoid having the two terminals
in different configurations.

5.3 - TROUBLESHOOTING PROCEDURE


The goal is to make a precise diagnostic of the problem, in order to determine the faulty unit quickly
and replace it.

5.3.1 - Describe the symptom


This is generally made by the field technician: common symptoms are "the link is broken", "there are
excessive transmission errors", "there are alarms", etc.
These symptoms may be permanent (failure) or intermittent. The alarm and event data and the
graphic records available in the Pilot can generally be used to improve the diagnostic ( 4.4 -).

5.3.2 - Isolate the problem


Once the symptom has been defined, the faulty unit can be isolated using information supplied by the
LEDs on the IDU front panel and the information available on the Pilot.
SAGEM-LINK F-H replacement units are the ODU, the IDU (without modem and without FAN), the
modem and the FAN drawer.
A 1+0 link is composed of several units. The goal of this step is to determine what the most probable
unit to replace is.
The difficulty is that, in some cases, the problem may be generated by the remote terminal, external
equipments (power supplies, bad interface signal levels, etc.) or the external environment (path
obstruction, radio interferers, severe climatic conditions, etc.).

5.3.3 - Fix the problem


Once the problem has been isolated, it is important to understand its cause and to apply corrective
actions to avoid reoccurrence of the problem.
Some typical problems are described in 5.6 -.

5.4.1 - Description of IDU LEDs

"maint" LED is orange during a maintenance operation (remote loopback, manual control of
1+1 switching). It is off in normal mode.

"idu" LED is red when there is multiplexer or a demultiplexer failure, when receive data is not
recovered (link broken), or if there is no fan drawer installed.

"trib" LED is red if there is no input signal on a tributary configured as normal, or if there is an
input signal on a tributary configured as inverted.

"ext" LED is red if there is a status change on one of the external alarms which have been
associated with this LED (see 3.6 - for a description of this alarm).

"GbE Lnk/Act" LEDs 1 to 4 are dedicated to the Gigabit Ethernet transmission

LED off: link down


Green LED lit permanently: link up
Green LED flashing: traffic indicator, flashes for each GE frame
Orange LED lit: collision

The "FAN" LED is red if the FAN module or one of the fans is faulty.

5.4.2 - Description of the Modem front panel LEDs

The " MODEM" LED is red if there is a problem on the ODU cable, if the modulator, demodulator
or power supply is faulty, or if the link is down (no received data).

The "RSL" LED is red if the level received by the ODU is below the programmed threshold, or if
there is a BER alarm (BER alarm, or BER warning). In most cases, this alarm corresponds to a
propagation or radio interferer problem.

The "ODU" LED is red if there is an ODU alarm or if an ODU is not connected (cable problem).
The LED is also red if the ODU is muted on a 1+0 link or if the two ODU of a 1+1 link are muted.

The "POWER" LED is green when the modem is powered up.

5.5 - ALARMS MANAGED BY THE PILOT


The Pilot software provides more details than the LEDs on the front panel of the equipment.

5.6 - TYPICAL SAGEM-LINK F-H PILOT SCREENS IN CASE OF PROBLEM


The following screens are representative of some typical problems.

5.6.1 - No IDU-Pilot software communication


When connecting the IDU to the PC, the following screen may be displayed:

The Pilot cannot communicate with the IDU. Check the Ethernet cable between IDU and PC and check
that the IP addresses and subnet masks of the PC and the IDU are compatible. From the PC, ping the
IDU Ethernet address. If the ping result is negative, change the IP address of the PC or of the IDU
Ethernet port (see 2.2 -).

5.6.2 - No local equipment, no remote equipment


If the connection between PC and IDU breaks during a Pilot session, the Pilot displays the following
screen:

Check that that the IDU is powered correctly and that the Ethernet cable between the PC and the IDU is
correctly installed.

Page 106/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

5.6.3 - No local radio


The IDU is recognized by the Pilot, but the ODU does not operate: absent, faulty or not answering the
IDU requests. In this case, the typical Pilot screen is as follows:

Check the cable between IDU and ODU. If the problem remains, replace the ODU or the modem.

5.6.4 - No remote radio


The local terminal operates correctly but communication with the remote terminal is down. In this case,
the typical Pilot screen is as follows:

Check the remote terminal configuration (frequency, capacity, modulation, transmit power), correct
antenna alignment and possible presence of obstacles between the two antennas.
In the bottom bar, the software suggests trying to "unmute" the remote equipment, which could be one
of the reasons why it fails to operate. Go to the maintenance menu to access this command.

Page 107/139

5.6.5 - Low RSL


The link is established but the RSL is low. The typical Pilot screen is as follows:

Check antenna alignment, transmit power levels and make sure that the fault is not due to a temporary
propagation problem.

5.6.6 - Low transmit power


The RSL of one of the two terminals is too low with respect to the other terminal. In this case, the typical
Pilot screen is as follows:

Increase the transmit power if possible. If the problem remains, replace the ODU on the site with the
doubtful transmitter.

7. GIGABIT ETHERNET FUNCTION

7.1 - S_VLAN SERVICES


SAGEM-LINK F-H is used to transmit an receive Gigabit Ethernet frames to / from remote equipment.
A GE Switch is implemented in the IDU in order to carry one or more VLAN transport services (S_VLAN).
Each S_VLAN service routes Ethernet frames via an Ethernet bridge.
Frames leaving the radio port are tagged with an S_VLAN tag according to IEE 802.1ad specification.
The Switch is transparent to C_VLAN IDs. It only processes the "User Priority" field.

7.2 - PORTS
7.2.1 - Definition
The "radio port" corresponds to radio transmission between the two terminals. Since the radio
transmission bandwidth is limited, this is the main point of congestion for the Ethernet transmission. The
available bandwidth depends on the radio configuration (modulation, radio channel bandwidth) and the
number of optional E1 channels activated.
GE ports are the Gigabit Ethernet transmission accesses; they can associated with either optical
interfaces (SX or LX), or electrical interfaces (10/100/1000BaseT).
Electrical SFP ports can handle throughputs of 10/100/1000 Mbit/s in Full or Half duplex, except for 1000
Mbit/s which must be in Full duplex.
The throughput and mode can be negotiated automatically (Auto negotiation "enable") with the remote
Ethernet port.

7.2.2 - Jumbo frames


If the Ethernet frames received on the GE ports are larger than 1760 bytes, jumbo frame mode must be
configured.

7.3 - TOPOLOGY
Two modes corresponding to different topologies can be implemented.

7.3.1 - EPLINE mode


In this mode, only one S-VLAN (N1) is implemented on the equipment.
This mode combines the topologies EPLINE (point to point with dedicated transport mean) and EPLAN
(multipoint with dedicated transport mean)
The EPLINE mode implements dedicated transport means.
The emitted frames on the radio port are not tagged S-VLAN.
A mechanism of PVE (Private VLAN Edge) prohibits the communication between the GE ports of same
equipment.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 120/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

7.3.2 - EVPLINE mode


In this mode, one or several S-VLAN are implemented on the equipment.
This mode allows to share resources of transport network.
For this, the emitted frames on the radio port are tagged with a tag S-VLAN including the number of the
used S-VLAN.
By configuration, the tag S-VLAN can be added to the frame or replace the tag C-VLAN of incoming
frames on the transport network.
In case of replacement of tag C-VLAN, only the frames tagged with a particular tag C-VLAN could be
transported in the so configured S-VLAN service.
The transport network can be extended to other network equipment (ADR range for example) ; for this,
some GE ports are configured as network interface NNI (Network to Network Interface).
The GE access ports of customers of transport network are configured as customer interface UNI (User
to Network Interface).
The communication between 2 UNI ports is prohibited ; the flows from 2 GE ports UNI will not be able to
use same S-VLAN service.

7.4 - DATA FLOWS


In the EVPLINE mode, one characterizes the data flows GE entering services S_VLAN :
- flow constituted of all the frames from a GE port (default_all)
- flow constituted of frames including some C-VLAN values (C-VLAN values range or C-VLAN
value)
- flow constituted of all the frames tagged C-VLAN not belonging to flows based on C-VLAN values
(default_tagged)
- flow constituted of all the frames not tagged C-VLAN (default_untagged)
Remark :
Several flows based on C-VLAN values can be assigned to same S-VLAN service.

7.5 - CONGESTION
If the data rate from the GE ports via the radio port is greater than the rate defined by the radio Port,
congestion will occur at the output resulting in data loss.

7.5.1 - Eliminating congestion


To eliminate congestion, the data rate from the GE ports can be limited by implementing a flow control
mechanism.
If the radio port reaches the congestion limit, the switch sends a command (pause) to the GE ports to
stop data transmission; when congestion has been cleared, the switch sends a command to the GE ports
to resume data transmission; the GE ports must be configured to process the pause commands.

Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited
Page 121/139

7.5.2 - Processing congestion


7.5.2.1 Description
Two additional mechanisms are implemented to process the congestion.
- processing of alarms entering the S_VLAN service which controls the traffic according to the rate
- processing of the output frames via queues.
7.5.2.2 Traffic control
To control the traffic, a contractual data rate must be defined for each flow from a GE port entering an
S_VLAN service.
This contractual rate (CIR: Committed Information Rate) defines the rate below which all incoming frames
are guaranteed to be routed on the radio port.
A metering system determines the instantaneous rate of the incoming flows.
- when the instantaneous rate is greater than the CIR, all frames in this flow are said to be "out of profile"
and are coloured yellow internally.
- when the instantaneous flow is less than or equal to the CIR, all frames of this flow are coloured green
internally.
- in case of congestion at output, the yellow frames can be deleted.
This mechanism allows occasional bursts.
The metering mechanism is configurable.
- in EPLINE mode, the CIR is configured per port
- in EVPLINE mode, the CIR is configured per type of flow defined on a GE port (UNI or NNI) ; the whole
flows based on C-VLAN values and assigned to same S-VLAN service will share a common CIR.
The possible maximum rate PIR (Peak Information Rate) is equal to the bandwidth of outgoing ports on
the transport network (radio port or GE port NI)
For flows to which is affected a maximum priority (Very high), the PIR value is limited to that of the CIR
(all the yellow frames are eliminated).
7.5.2.3 Output queues
A queue mechanism is used to sort the frames according to priority criteria, absorb the temporary bursts
and delete the yellow frames in case of saturation.

7.6 - QUALITY OF SERVICE (QOS)


Routing of frames from one port to another takes a certain amount of time on the transport network
(S_VLAN), called latency.
Depending on the data routed, this time may have to be reduced (e.g. telephone data).
To perform quality of service (QoS), each frame is tagged when entering a S_VLAN service.
In EPLINE mode, this priority is either allocated by default to all frames from a GE port and entering an
S_VLAN service, or based on the priority which was already allocated by the equipment of the uplink
customer network (User Priority - UP, contained in the Ethernet frame (802.1d)); the Switch allocates a
default service priority to any frame which does not contain a UP field.

SAGEM-LINK F-H Installation and Operation Manual 253 129 101-A


Page 122/139
Sagem Communications document. Reproduction and disclosure prohibited

In EVPLINE mode, this priority is configured at the time of the definition of a flow entering a S-VLAN
The flows based on C-VLAN values and assigned to same S-VLAN service will have the same priority.
QoS is managed using a mechanism involving 4 output queues (Traffic Class - TC).
- TC 0: "very low" priority;
- TC 1: "low" priority;
- TC 2: "high" priority;
- TC 3: "very high" priority;
Queues TC0, TC1, and TC2 are WRR (Weighted Round Robin) type; these queues are emptied in turn,
queues with the highest priorities first; a maximum of n frames are extracted from a TC before moving to
the next one; n is known as the weight. The weights are respectively 16 (W2), 8 (W1) and 4 (W0) for TCs
2, 1 and 0.
Queue TC3 is SP (Strict Priority) type; it is emptied continuously in proportion to the bandwidth allocated
(very high queue priority radio bandwidth).
The frames are distributed in the various queues depending on the service priority allocated to them in
input.
In EPLINE mode, if the priority is configured globally for the entire data flow from a port and entering an
S_VLAN service (Port Priority), the Switch distributes all the frames of this flow to the TC configured
(Priority).
If the priority used is that of the frames received (User Priority), the allocation rule is as follows:
UP 0 and 3 => TC0,
UP 1 and 2 => TC1,
UP 4 and 5 => TC2,
UP 6 and 7 => TC3,
Frames with no UP field will be directed to the TC configured (Default QoS).
In EVPLINE mode, the Switch ventilates all the frames of a flow towards the configured TC (Priority).
The Switch eliminates frames according to their source or destination MAC address (black list, maximum
16 addresses).
The MAC addresses are independently defined for each GE port UNI.
The Switch can read the statistics counters for the data passing through the port; they are classified as
transmission/reception and with/without errors and can be reset for all ports at the same time.
The Switch can also read the metering statistics counters; the counters record the number of bytes in
green frames (rate less than or equal to the CIR) and the number of bytes in yellow frames (rate greater
than the CIR).

26 GHz ODUs

32 GHz ODUs

38 GHz ODUs

Note 1: the minimum and maximum frequencies in these tables correspond to the ODU diplexer bandwidth
transmission side, not channel frequencies. The channel frequencies available depend on the selected channel
occupied bandwidth.
The frequency of the first channel is equal to the minimum diplexer frequency + half the band corresponding to
the transmitted spectrum. The frequency of the last channel is equal to the maximum diplexer frequency - half
the band corresponding to the transmitted spectrum.
The band corresponding to the transmitted spectrum is 40 MHz for a 56 MHz Tx/Tx spacing, 20 MHz for a 28
MHz Tx/Tx spacing (see also 6.2.5 -).
