XPIC Feature and 1+1 Protection

Configuration
One XPIC group cannot form a 1+1 HSB/FD/SD protection group, but two XPIC groups can
form two 1+1 HSB/FD/SD protection groups in one polarization direction.
XPIC Group with 1+1 Protection Configured on Single-IF Boards
Figure 1 shows an example wherein two XPIC groups form two 1+1 HSB protection groups
respectively in the horizontal and vertical polarization directions.
 The service channels of the XPIC IF boards in slots 3 and 4 form one XPIC group,
and the service channels of the XPIC IF boards in slots 5 and 6 form another.
 The service channels of the XPIC IF boards in slots 3 and 5 form one 1+1 HSB
protection group, and the service channels of the XPIC IF boards in slots 4 and 6 form
another.
 The service channels of the XPIC IF boards in slots 3 and 4 are the main channels of
the two 1+1 HSB protection groups. In normal cases, the two main channels in the
horizontal and vertical polarization directions transmit services.
 The service channels of the XPIC IF boards in slots 5 and 6 are the standby channels
of the two 1+1 HSB protection groups.

 NOTE:
If the radio links in the vertical polarization direction of two XPIC groups form a 1+1 HSB
protection group and the radio links in the horizontal polarization direction of the two XPIC
groups form another 1+1 HSB protection group, you can create a manual load-sharing
LAG or EPLA using the two 1+1 HSB protection groups. The main and slave ports in the
LAG or EPLA must be the Integrated IP microwave ports on the main IF boards in the 1+1
HSB protection groups. As shown in Figure 1, the Integrated IP microwave port on the IF
board in slot 3 is configured as the main port in the LAG or EPLA, and the Integrated IP
microwave port on the IF board in slot 4 is configured as the slave port in the LAG or EPLA.

 NOTE:
An OMT must be installed on a direct-mount dual-polarized antenna.

In the receive direction, if the XPIC IF board in slot 3 is faulty or its connected ODU is faulty,
HSB switching occurs on the equipment and services are switched to the channel of the XPIC
IF board in slot 5. The fault also causes loss of the XPIC cancellation signal sent from the
XPIC IF board in slot 3 to the XPIC IF board in slot 4. As a result, HSB switching occurs on the
XPIC IF board in slot 4 and services are switched to the channel of the XPIC IF board in slot 6.
Therefore, services are switched from one XPIC group to another.
In the transmit direction, if signal transmission in the polarization direction (vertically, for
example) corresponding to the XPIC IF board in slot 3 is faulty (for example, a transmitter of
the ODU fails), switching occurs at the local end. That is, services are switched from the XPIC
IF board in slot 3 to the XPIC IF board in slot 5. Meanwhile, switching occurs in the horizontal
polarization direction. That is, services are switched from the XPIC IF board in slot 4 to the
XPIC IF board in slot 6.

XPIC Group with 1+1 Protection Configured on dual-channel IF


board
Figure 2 shows an example wherein two XPIC groups form two 1+1 HSB protection groups
respectively in the horizontal and vertical polarization directions.
 The service channels of port 1 and port 2 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3
form one XPIC group, and the service channels of port 1 and port 2 on the dual-channel
IF board in slot 5 form another.
 The service channels on the two ports (port 1) on the dual-channel IF board in slots
3 and slot 5 form one 1+1 HSB protection group, and the service channels on the two
ports (port 2) on the dual-channel IF board in slots 3 and slot 5 form another.
 The service channels of ports 1 and 2 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3 are
both the main channels of the two 1+1 HSB protection groups.
 The service channels of ports 1 and 2 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 5 are
both the standby channels of the two 1+1 HSB protection groups.

 NOTE:
If the radio links in the vertical polarization direction of two XPIC groups form a 1+1 HSB
protection group and the radio links in the horizontal polarization direction of the two XPIC
groups form another 1+1 HSB protection group, you can create a manual load-sharing
LAG or EPLA using the two 1+1 HSB protection groups. The main and slave ports in the
LAG or EPLA must be the Integrated IP microwave ports on the main IF boards in the 1+1
HSB protection groups. As shown in Figure 2, port 1 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3 is
configured as the main port in the LAG or EPLA, and port 2 on the dual-channel IF board in
slot 3 is configured as the slave port in the LAG or EPLA.

 NOTE:
An OMT must be installed on a direct-mount dual-polarized antenna.
In the receive direction, if HSB switching occurs on port 1 on the dual-channel IF board in
slot 3, services are switched to port 1 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 5. The fault also
causes loss of the XPIC signal sent from port 1 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3 to port
2 on it. As a result, 1+1 HSB switching occurs port 2 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3
and services are switched to port 2 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 5. Thus, services are
switched from one XPIC workgroup to another.
In the transmit direction, if signal transmission in the polarization direction (vertically, for
example) corresponding to port 1 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3 is faulty (for
example, a transmitter of the ODU fails), switching occurs at the local end. That is, services
are switched from port 1 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3 to port 1 on the dual-channel
IF board in slot 5. Meanwhile, switching occurs in the horizontal polarization direction. That
is, services are switched from port 2 on the dual-channel IF board in slot 3 to port 2 on the
dual-channel IF board in slot 5.
