(1)  The TX GBIC transceiver does not comply with the Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS) electrostatic discharge (ESD) requirement.



 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. The intrabuilding ports of the line cards are suitable for connection to intrabuilding or unexposed wiring or cabling only. The intrabuilding ports of the line cards must not be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the outside plant (OSP) or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use with intrabuilding interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 4) and require isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The addition of primary protectors is not sufficient protection to connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.
Note:  
The SmartEdge 800 is suitable for installation in Network Telecommunication Facilities and as part of the Common Bonding Network (CBN).

(1)  The low-voltage alarm on the chassis is raised when the input voltage drops below -33Vdc. The power monitoring circuit has a wide tolerance of -33Vdc to -38Vdc, so input voltage within this range may not raise the low-voltage alarm.


Each DC power connection must be able to supply a minimum of 40 amperes. DC power connections require copper wire of a size suitable for the installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code (in the United States) or applicable local jurisdiction (outside the United States) installation requirements. An external fuse panel, either a standalone unit or incorporated in a DC power supply system, or a circuit breaker panel, is required for power on and power off control.


 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. A DC-powered system uses –48 VDC power, is powered from a fuse panel, and can be damaged by overloaded circuits. To reduce the risk, ensure that the fuses in the external fuse panel are suitably rated for the installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code (in the United States) or applicable local jurisdiction (outside the United States) installation requirements.

(1)  Inrush current occurs during power on or during the installation of a component in a powered-on chassis. Unless noted, maximum duration is 4 ms.

(2)  Because the TX SFP is larger than a standard SFP, you cannot insert two TX SFPs side by side on the 20-port GE1020 line card.



 Caution! 
XCRP4 Controller cards require more power than earlier controller cards, and as a result, can limit the number of line cards that you can install in a SmartEdge 800 chassis. The maximum power required for all components, including line cards and chassis components, must not exceed 1,920 watts (40 amperes@–48 VDC).

(1)  ATM DS-3 cards are limited to slots 3 and 4.

(2)  The SC connectors on optical cards are type SC/PC; cable and card connectors must match.

(3)  Because the TX SFP is larger than a standard SFP, you cannot insert two TX SFPs side by side on the 20-port GE1020 line card.

(4)  The front panel has 5 MRJ21 connectors, each supporting 12 FE ports; a breakout cable, which uses RJ-45 connectors for the individual ports, is available from Ericsson.

(5)  Connector type is determined by the gigabit interface converter (GBIC) version installed in the port.

(6)  These line cards are limited to slots 3 and 4.

(7)  The SmartEdge OS does not support this connection.


1.5   Select the Rack

You can mount the SmartEdge 800 chassis in a standard 19- or 23-inch rack. If you use a standard 7-foot 45 rack unit (RU) rack, you can install four SmartEdge 800 chassis in a single rack for maximum density.

The SmartEdge 800 chassis requires nine RUs (an RU is 1.75 inches [4.50 cm]); each air ramp requires two RUs; a standalone external fuse panel requires one RU.

Note:  
Ericsson does not supply fuse panels.

If density is not a consideration, you can mount the chassis in a standard 42 RU rack. In either rack, the lowermost air ramp is not required, but enough space for ventilation and air filter maintenance must be left between the lowermost chassis and the floor, approximately 4.0 inches (10.2 cm).


 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. Never install the chassis in a rack that has not been stabilized by being bolted to the floor and to the ceiling and always select a mounting position that is suitable to the type of rack in which the chassis is being installed.

You must install a lower air ramp below the chassis when you install the chassis at the bottom of the rack or when you install other equipment below the chassis.

Figure 1   Fully Loaded 45 RU Rack Configuration

1.6   Equipment and Personal Safety Warnings


 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. Always remove the fuses in the fuse panel for all power sources to the chassis power zones (A1 and A2, B1 and B2) before connecting the power cables to the chassis. After the power cables are connected to the chassis and the fuse panel, the system is fully powered on; there is no power chassis.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. This equipment must be connected to a protective ground in accordance with the instructions provided in this guide. Improper grounding can result in an electrical shock.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. Only qualified personnel are allowed to service the system. There are mechanical and electrical shock hazards present throughout the system if one or more of the cards is removed.

 Caution! 
Risk of severe damage to your eyes. Do not stare into the connector or directly view the laser beam emerging from the connector. Keep the connectors covered until you are ready to connect the fiber-optic cables. All versions of the optical cards are Class 1 products, which use lasers to convert electrical signals to optical signals that can damage your eyes.

 Warning! 
Risk of personal injury. Disconnect the telecommunications network cables before removing the card to which they are connected. This equipment does not provide safety isolation between any port that is connected to a digital network termination point and any other port to which terminal equipment may be connected.

1.7   DC Power Source Warnings


 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. A readily accessible disconnection device, such as a fuse in a fuse panel, must be provided in the fixed wiring for each DC power source. It must be suitable for the rated voltage and current specified. Because a system is fully powered on after all power connections are made, it can cause shock if a power cable is disconnected from the chassis.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. Disconnect all telecommunications network lines before disconnecting the unit from the ground point. Safe operation of this equipment requires connection to a ground point.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. DC power sources can cause severe injury. The DC power sources must be installed only in restricted access areas (dedicated equipment rooms, equipment closets, or the like) in accordance with Articles 110-17, 110-26, and 110-27 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. Connect the chassis to a –48 VDC source that is reliably connected to earth.

1.8   Access During the Initial Startup and Reload Operations

During the initial startup, only the console port (labeled CRAFT on the XCRP4 and CRAFT 2 on the CRP3 Controller card) is operable until you have configured the Ethernet management port (labeled ENET MGMT on the XCRP4 Controller card). During a reload operation, the management port is disabled until the initial stage of the reload is complete; all messages displayed during the reload are sent to the console port.

You access the SmartEdge 800 router with a terminal connected to the console port, either directly or through a terminal server.

For more information about configuring cards, ports, and circuits; see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

1.9   Access During Normal Operations

After you have configured the Ethernet management port, you can use one or more of the following options to provide management access:

For redundancy, we recommend using two different methods (for example, a remote workstation and a remote console terminal with a connection to a terminal server). Further, if the configuration of the SmartEdge 800 router includes redundant controller cards, you should use the same means of access to connect each controller card, so that consistent management access, despite a failure, is guaranteed.

1.10   Management Access Options

The XCRP4 Controller card can receive timing data only. However, the SmartEdge OS does not support the transmission of timing data to another SmartEdge router or any other external equipment.

The nominal impedance of the DS-1 wire pairs is 100 ohms; that of the E1 wire pairs is 120 ohms.

One end of the cable is terminated with a DB-9 male connector; the other end of the cable is left unterminated for attachment to the wire wrap posts of the external equipment. Both of the DB-9 connectors (PRIMARY and SECONDARY) on the rear panel of a SmartEdge chassis have identical pin assignments.

Note:  
An adapter, available as an option, provides wirewrap pins to allow you to attach a cable without a connector.

To bring a signal from external equipment into a SmartEdge system:

2   Installing the Hardware


 Stop! 
The SmartEdge 800 is to be installed in a restricted access area (dedicated equipment rooms, equipment closets, or other restricted-access area) and in accordance with Articles 110-26 and 110-27 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, or in accordance with the applicable code in the country of installation.

Figure 2   Fully Loaded 45 RU Rack Configuration

To install system hardware:

  1. Install an external fuse panel.
  2. Use either a stand-alone unit or one incorporated in a DC power supply system, or use a circuit breaker panel. We recommend that the panel provide separate connectors for all power zones (A1, A2, B1, B2).
  3. Select the chassis position in the rack:
  4. The SmartEdge 800 chassis requires nine rack units (RUs). (An RU is 1.75 inches [4.50 cm].)
  5. Each chassis requires two air ramps, one above and one below the chassis. An air ramp requires two RUs.
  6. A standalone external fuse panel requires one RU.
  7. The lowermost chassis (a chassis with no equipment beneath it) does not require an air ramp beneath it, but enough space for ventilation and air filter maintenance must be left between the lowermost chassis and the floor (approximately 4.0 inches [10.2 cm]). Do not install any other equipment below the lowermost chassis if you do not install an air ramp beneath it.

     Caution! 
    Risk of equipment damage. In a rack that has not been stabilized, the chassis can cause a rack to overbalance. To reduce the risk, never install the chassis in a rack that has not been stabilized by being bolted to the floor and to the ceiling and always select a mounting position that is suitable to the type of rack in which the chassis is being installed.
  8. Determine alignment and install the chassis mounting brackets:
  9. Flush mount—The front of the chassis extends approximately 5.2 inches (13.2 cm) beyond the front of the rack.
  10. Extended mount—The front of the chassis extends approximately 6.3 inches (16.0 cm) beyond the front of the rack.
  11. Centered mount—The chassis extends approximately 9.6 inches (24.4 cm) beyond the front of the rack.
    Note:  
    Because the chassis extends beyond the front of the rack in all mounting positions, a rack with a front door might not be suitable for the installation unless the door is removed.

2.1   Installing the Chassis Mounting Brackets

A pair of chassis mounting brackets for a 19-inch rack are shipped with the chassis. Each bracket requires four 10-32 x 0.25-inch flat-head screws.

Note:  
Brackets for the 23-inch rack are not shipped with the chassis but are available in the bracket spares kit.

Figure 3   Options for Mounting the Chassis


 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. Always use the number and type of screws specified in the instructions. Failure to use the proper screws to attach the mounting brackets to the SmartEdge 800 chassis and the brackets to the rack can damage the chassis.

To install either type of bracket:

  1. Position a mounting bracket against one side of the chassis, lining up four of the screw holes in the bracket with four of the screw holes in the side of the chassis, according to the mounting option you have selected. The proper orientation for installing the brackets in Figure 3.
  2. Using a Phillips screwdriver, attach the bracket to the chassis with four of the screws provided with the mounting bracket; tighten each screw to a maximum torque of 15.0 inch-lbs (1.7 Newton-meters).
  3. Repeat Step 1 and Step 2 to attach the second bracket to the other side of the chassis.

2.2   Installing the Chassis


 Warning! 
Risk of personal injury. A fully loaded chassis weighs almost 50 lb (23 kg) and can cause injury if one person attempts to lift or move it. To reduce the risk, do not lift or move the chassis without the aid of another trained person; always follow the procedures at this installation site for safely lifting heavy objects.

 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. Do not grasp the power safety cover, the cable tray, the opening for the fan tray, or any slot opening as a handhold when lifting or lowering the chassis. None of these components nor any opening can bear the strain induced by the chassis weight. Always grasp the chassis by its underside edges and not by the covers or the interior partition.

Perform the following steps when only two installers are available to install the chassis. In this scenario, the two installers lift the chassis into the rack; then one installer steadies it from the rear while the second installer inserts and tightens the rack mounting screws.

To install the SmartEdge 800 chassis in the rack:

  1. Before you begin, you need six 12-24 or equivalent screws.
  2. Move the heavy-duty cart so that the rear of the chassis is closest to the rack.
  3. Remove the fan tray:
  4. Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the captive screw on the front of the unit.
  5. Gently slide it from the chassis and set it aside.
  6. With one engineer holding the chassis in place, use a Phillips screwdriver to secure the chassis to the rack with six 12-24 or equivalent screws; tighten each screw to a maximum torque of 30.0 inch-lbs (3.4 Newton-meters).

2.3   Mounting an Air Ramp

Figure 4   Positioning an Air Ramp

You must install a lower air ramp below the chassis when you install the chassis at the bottom of the rack or when you install other equipment below the chassis. This additional air ramp is needed for proper ventilation; see Figure 2.


 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. Always mount the air ramp at the same mounting depth as the SmartEdge 800 chassis above it. Improper installation of the lower air ramp can cause loss of cooling and damage the SmartEdge 800 chassis.

2.4   Install Air Ramp Mounting Brackets

Figure 5   Installing Air Ramp Brackets for the Flush Mount Position

Figure 6   Installing Air Ramp Brackets for the Extended Mount Position

Figure 7   Installing Air Ramp Brackets for the Centered Mount Position

To install the air ramp mounting brackets:

  1. Position a mounting bracket against one side of the first air ramp, lining up two of the screw holes in the bracket with two of the screw holes in the side of the air ramp. Ensure that the bracket position corresponds to the position of the chassis mounting brackets. Refer to the proper orientation for installing the brackets in Figure 8, Figure 9, and Figure 10.
  2. Using a Phillips screwdriver, secure the bracket to the air ramp with two of the 10-32 x 0.25-inch screws provided with the brackets; tighten each screw to a maximum torque of 15.0 inch-lbs (1.7 Newton-meters).
  3. Repeat Step 1 and Step 2 to install the second bracket on the other side of the air ramp.

2.5   Install Air Ramp

To install the air ramps:

  1. Before installing an air ramp, you need four 12-24 or equivalent screws
  2. Position an air ramp just above or resting directly on the SmartEdge 800 chassis so that the screw holes in the air ramp mounting brackets are aligned with the screw holes in the rack just above the chassis; see Figure 4.
  3. Using a Phillips screwdriver, secure the air ramp to the rack or extension hardware with four 12-24 or equivalent screws; tighten each screw to a maximum torque of 15.0 inch-lbs (1.7 Newton-meters).
  4. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to install the other air ramp just below the SmartEdge 800 chassis; however, the lower air ramp is not required if and only if there is no equipment installed below the chassis in the rack.

2.6   Connecting the Power Cables

Figure 8   Connecting Power

Note:  
Use only copper American wire gauge (AWG) cables for power and ground connections.

The SmartEdge 800 chassis has terminal studs for A-side and B-side power cables for full power redundancy; these terminal studs are located on a pair of power filters that are mounted on the rear of the chassis. The A- and B-side power cables are connected to separate A-side and B-side connectors on the external fuse panel or circuit breaker panel. There are two connectors, also located on the rear of the chassis, either of which can be used to attach the chassis ground cable. Figure 8 shows the location of the power and chassis ground connectors. A safety cover, secured to the chassis by tabs and captive Phillips screws, prevents the cables from being deliberately disconnected and the connectors from being accidentally touched.

Note:  
In Figure 2-7, the SmartEdge 800 has isolated DC return (DC-I). The –48V return terminal for each power source is not connected to either frame ground (A-side or B-side).

The chassis requires AWG #4 wire for power and chassis ground cables, but AWG #6 might be acceptable; follow the National Electrical Code (NEC) (in the United States) or local codes (outside the United States) that apply. Compression lugs, washers, locking washers, and hex-head nuts are shipped with the chassis; the compression lugs are intended for AWG #4 cables only.

2.6.1   Connect Chassis Ground Cable

The back panel of the SmartEdge 800 chassis has two connectors for a chassis ground cable. Each connector consists of a pair of 1/4-20 UNC terminal studs, which are labeled “FRAME GND”. These are located at the top rear of the chassis. The distance between the terminal studs in each pair is 0.625 in (1.588 cm).

The chassis ground cable must be AWG #4 and installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code (in the United States) or applicable local jurisdiction (outside the United States) installation requirements.

Note:  
The size of the ground cable, if installed in a Central Office, must be 6 - 8 AWG, or greater. If the connector cannot handle this, the ground cable must be the same AWG as the power conductors.

Perform the following steps to connect and route the chassis ground cable:

  1. Attach a compression lug to one end of the chassis ground cable:
    1. Insert one end of the chassis ground cable in the lug.
      Note:  
      Bare connectors and all grounding surfaces must be brought to a bright finish and coated with an antioxidant before crimp connections are made.

    2. Slip the tool over the compression lug and squeeze the handles several times to grip the connector.
    3. Continue to squeeze the handles until the automatic tool release indicates a completed compression.
  2. Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the captive screws on the power safety cover; then lift the cover up and away from the chassis to disengage the tabs on the top edge of the cover from the slots in the chassis.
  3. Place the connector over the studs labeled “FRAME GND” on either side of the chassis; choose the side that is most convenient for the installation site; see Figure 8.
  4. Secure the connection with a pair of locking washer nuts; with a 7/16-inch torque wrench, tighten the locking washer nuts to a maximum torque of 25.0 inch-lbs (2.8 Newton-meters).
  5. Tie and route the chassis ground cable to a convenient location on the rack.
  6. Ensure that the other end of the cable is connected to an appropriate ground point.
  7. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for a redundant frame ground connection.
Note:  
To properly secure power and ground connections, use star washers for anti-rotation and thread-forming screws with paint-piercing washers, where applicable.

2.6.2   Connect Power Cables

The SmartEdge 800 chassis has two power filters mounted on the back panel of the chassis: one filter for each of the two power sources. Each filter has two connectors, labeled “–48V” and “RETURN” for a pair of power cables. Each power cable must be AWG #4 and installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code (in the United States) or applicable local jurisdiction (outside the United States) installation requirements. The following DC power source warnings and cautions apply when connecting DC power sources:


 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. The system uses DC power sources, which can cause severe injury. To reduce the risk, the DC power sources must be installed only in restricted access areas (dedicated equipment rooms, equipment closets, or the like) in accordance with Articles 110-17, 110-26, and 110-27 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. Connect the chassis to a –48 VDC source that is reliably connected to earth.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. Because a system is fully powered on after all power connections are made, it can cause shock if a power cable is disconnected from the chassis. To reduce the risk, a readily accessible disconnect device, such as a fuse in a fuse panel, must be provided in the fixed wiring for each DC power source. It must be suitable for the rated voltage and current specified.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. Safe operation of this equipment requires connection to a ground point. To reduce the risk of possible injury from voltages on the telecommunications network, disconnect all telecommunications network lines before disconnecting the unit from the ground point.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. This equipment uses –48 VDC power, which can cause shock if inadequate power sources are connected to it. To reduce the risk, verify that the power sources for the SmartEdge router meet the power specifications provided in Chapter 1, “Site Preparation,” and ensure that DC power cables meet the specifications provided in the “Physical Specifications” section in the same chapter before connecting the power cables.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. After the power cables are connected to the chassis and the fuse panel, the system is fully powered on; there is no power switch. To reduce the risk, always remove the fuses for both the A-side and B-side power sources in the fuse panel before connecting the power cables to the chassis.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. Improper grounding can result in an electrical shock. To reduce the risk, this equipment must be connected to a protective ground in accordance with the instructions provided in this guide.

 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. A DC-powered system uses –48 VDC power, is powered from a fuse panel, and can be damaged by overloaded circuits. To reduce the risk, ensure that the fuses in the external fuse panel are suitably rated for the installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code (in the United States) or applicable local jurisdiction (outside the United States) installation requirements.

To connect the power cables:

  1. Attach a compression lug to one end of a power cable:
    1. Insert one end of the power cable in the lug.
    2. Slip the tool over the compression lug and squeeze the handles several times to grip the connector.
    3. Continue to squeeze the handles until the automatic tool release indicates a completed compression.
  2. Connect a power cable as follows; see Figure 8
    1. Place the connector over the terminal studs labeled “–48V” on the power filter on the right side (the A-side) of the chassis and secure it with the pair of locking washer nuts.
    2. With a 7/16-inch torque wrench, tighten the locking washer nuts to a maximum torque of 25.0 inch-lbs (2.8 Newton-meters).
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to connect the second power cable to the terminal stud labeled “RETURN”.
  4. If you are installing redundant power, repeat steps 1 to 3 to connect the power cables to the power filter on the left side (the B-side) of the chassis.
  5. Install the safety cover; see Figure 9
    1. Insert the tabs on the top edge of the safety cover into the slots on the rear of the chassis.
    2. Push on the lower edge of the cover so that the captive screws are inserted in the screw holes.
    3. Thumb tighten the captive screws; then, using a Phillips screwdriver, secure the safety cover to the rear of the chassis, to a maximum torque of 5.0 inch-lbs (0.6 Newton-meters).
  6. Tie and route the A-side and B-side power cables to convenient locations on the rack.

Figure 9   Installing the Power Safety Cover

2.7   Completing the Installation

After the chassis ground and power cables have been connected to the chassis, you are ready to install the controller and line cards. If you need help identifying the cards, see the card illustrations provided in Card Descriptions You then install blank cards in any remaining empty slots.

2.7.1   Select the Slots

Card slots in the SmartEdge 800 chassis are numbered sequentially from left to right as you face the front of the chassis.

Figure 10   SmartEdge 800 Card Slots

Observe the following configuration rules when installing the cards:

1 to 6 or 9 to 14


 Caution! 
Risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. To reduce the risk of ESD damage, always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling the card. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface. Avoid touching the card, components, or any connector pins.
  1. Put on an ESD wrist strap, and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface.
  2. Loosen the captive screws and remove the current traffic or blank card that is installed in the slot for the new card.
  3. Align the card with the card guides; these are located at the top and bottom of the card slot in the chassis.

     Caution! 
    Risk of equipment damage. When you insert the card, the underside of the card might rub against the electromagnetic interference (EMI) gasket of the adjacent card and potentially damage the card. If the card does not slide smoothly without effort, or if the card touches the components on the adjacent card, do not force the card into the slot. Shift the left edge of the front panel slightly to the right until the card slides easily into the slot.
  4. Position the ejector levers away from the front panel and then carefully slide the card into the slot. The ejector levers rotate as the latching mechanisms engage the walls of the slot and the connectors on the card are inserted into the connectors on the backplane.
  5. Fully seats the connectors with the backplane by pushing on the ejector levers until they are parallel with the front panel.
  6. Tighten the screw on the front panel. Then with the Phillips screwdriver, tighten each screw to a maximum torque of 5.0 inch-lbs (0.6 Newton-meters).
  7. Verify the operational status as described in Hardware Control and Troubleshooting
  8. Connect and route the cables using the procedures in Cable Management.
  9. Repeat step 2 to step 7 for each card to be installed.

2.7.3   Install Blank Cards

When all cards have been installed, insert a blank card into every empty slot.


 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. SmartEdge 800 cards can be damaged by the lack of cooling. To reduce this risk, always insert blank cards in each empty slot to ensure proper airflow through the chassis.

2.7.4   Install Transceivers

Figure 12   Installing a GBIC Transceiver

Figure 13   Installing an SFP Transceiver

Figure 14   Installing an XFP Transceiver

Ports on Gigabit Ethernet cards require a gigabit interface converter (GBIC), a small form-factor pluggable (SFP), or a 10-Gbps SFP (XFP) transceiver installed in each port; the port on an OC-192c/STM-64c card also requires an XFP transceiver.

(1)  If the transceiver has not been qualified for use in the line card, the system displays a warning message.

(2)  Because the TX SFP is larger than a standard SFP, you cannot insert two TX SFPs side by side on the 20-port GE1020 line card.



 Caution! 
Risk of data loss. You can corrupt the system if you attempt to install transceivers have not been tested with SmartEdge line cards. To reduce the risk, install only the transceivers approved by Ericsson.

To install a transceiver of any type:

  1. Put on an antistatic wrist strap and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface; an ESD convenience jack is located on the front of the fan and alarm unit.

     Caution! 
    Risk of ESD damage. Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling any transceiver. Avoid touching its connector pins.
  2. Ensure that the latching mechanism is closed.
  3. With the transceiver connectors aligned with the RX and TX labels on the front panel of the line card (as shown in Figure 12, Figure 13, or Figure 14), slide the transceiver into the opening for the port until the rear connector is seated and the locking mechanism snaps into place.

    The labels for the TX and RX connectors vary by vendor. An arrow, which can be incised on the case, usually indicates the traffic direction.

  4. Remove the dust cover if you are installing an optical transceiver.

2.7.5   Install CF Cards

Figure 15   Installing an CF Card

Each controller card has an external slot on the front panel in which you can install an optional Type I or Type II external storage device.

If you install an external storage device in the active controller card, the standby controller card, if installed, must also have an external storage device installed; however, the device types (Type I or Type II) need not match. The XCRP4 Controller card supports Type I devices only.


 Caution! 

Risk of equipment damage. Do not force the CF card into its slot. If the card does not slide in easily, one of the following conditions is possible:

The card does not engage the connectors because it is mispositioned. Check the position and alignment. The card does not engage the connectors because it is upside down. Remove the card and rotate it 180°; then try again. The card has been previously damaged so that it cannot align correctly with the slot connectors; remove the card and discard it. Do not use it in any other equipment. The slot connectors have been bent or otherwise damaged by a previous card insertion; you must replace the controller card.

To install a CF card:

  1. If you are installing the device in an XCRP4 Controller card, open the door that covers the CF Type 1 slot until it “snaps” open.
  2. Hold the device so that its pin-hole side faces the slot in the controller front panel.
  3. Vertically align the device as close to the left edge of the slot as possible and perpendicular to it; see Figure 15.
  4. Slowly insert the device in the slot. If the device does not engage the connectors with approximately 0.50 inches (1.27 cm) of the device outside the slot, do not continue. Remove the device and repeat this step.
  5. If you are installing the device in an XCRP4 Controller card, close the door.

After insertion, the system automatically recognizes the CF card and begins to mount it. The CF Active LED begins to blink. When the CF Active LED is off, you can begin using the CF card.

If the system cannot successfully mount the file system on the CF card (for example, the file system is damaged or the card is unformatted), the CF Active LED stops blinking, becomes off, and the system displays an error message on the console. You must enter the format media-device command (in exec mode) to format the CF card and the mount command (in exec mode) to mount it.

For more information about the format media-device and mount commands, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

2.8   Cable Management

Cable management is implemented at the front of the chassis to accommodate both fiber-optic and nonfiber cables; at the rear of the chassis, it is intended for the DS-3 and E3 cables attached to the BNC connectors (if they are present).

There are two different cable trays for the front of the chassis: adjustable and extended. Both trays have 14 slots, one for each card slot.

The adjustable cable tray has 14 cable guides and 4 brackets:

To adjust a partitioner, use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen or remove the screws that secure the partitioner to the bracket, slide or rotate the partitioner to the desired position, and then tighten the screws.

Figure 16   Adjust the Partitioner for a Front Cable Bracket

The extended cable tray has 14 fixed cable guides; no adjustments are needed. Fiber and nonfiber cables share the space provided between the guides for each card.

Figure 17   Extended Cable Tray

The rear of the chassis has cable management brackets that are permanently installed along the lower portion of the rear panel; see Figure 18. No configuration is needed. You route the cables attached to the BNC connectors to the nearest cable bracket, keeping the cables for any one line card (in any vertical row) together.

Figure 18   Rear Cable Management Brackets

2.9   Connections for Management Access

Connecting a console terminal or management workstation to the SmartEdge 800 router is often a two-stage process. Initially the console terminal is connected to the Craft 2 port (also referred to as the console port) to configure the Ethernet port (also referred to as the management port); configuring the management port and modifying the configuration of the console port is described in the related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net. When the configuration is complete, you might need to alter the connections for normal operations.

2.9.1   Management Workstation

Figure 19   Connections for a Management Workstation

A management workstation is connected to the SmartEdge 800 router using the Ethernet port on the front of a controller card. This type of connection provides access to the SmartEdge OS command-line interface (CLI) after you have configured the port. Figure 19 shows the connections to the Ethernet ports on a pair of controller cards.

Two types of connections are supported:

Neither type of connection is suitable during a reload operation, because the Ethernet port is disabled until the reload is complete.

2.9.2   Local or Remote Console Terminal

Figure 20   Connections for a Local or Remote Console

A local or remote console terminal is connected to the SmartEdge 800 router using the Craft 2 port on the front of a controller card. This type of connection provides access to the SmartEdge OS CLI, either directly or through a terminal server. Figure 20 shows the connection to the Craft 2 port.

A null modem is needed when connecting this cable to a modem; it is not needed when connecting it to a PC or terminal server.

This port is always available; all system messages are directed to this port during a power on or reload operation.

Note:  
When you first power on the system, the active controller card is in slot 7. Thereafter, the slot changes whenever a switchover occurs.

2.10   Connections for External Timing Cables

Figure 21   Connections for the External Timing Cables

An adapter, available as an option, provides wire wrap pins to allow you to attach a cable without a connector.

Note:  
The SmartEdge OS does not support the alarm, status, and RS-232 dial-up modem ports.

An external timing cable provides a connection from an external synchronization source, such as a building integrated timing supply (BITS) or synchronization supply unit (SSU), to a SmartEdge 800 system. Each cable consists of two individually shielded, twisted wire pairs: one pair for the synchronization input and another pair for the synchronization output.

The XCRP4 Controller card can receive timing data only. The SmartEdge OS does not support the transmission of timing data to another SmartEdge router or any other external equipment.

Two connections are possible: one from a primary source and one from a secondary source. Either connection can provide timing for the entire chassis (input), regardless of the configuration of the controller cards. See Figure 21 for the location of the connectors for these cables.

2.11   Connections for Line Card Cables

You connect all line card cables, except the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) DS-3, DS-3, and E-3 cables, to the front panels of the cards; ATM DS_3, DS-3, and E-3 cables are connected to the rear of the chassis. Not all ports are enabled on a low-density version of a line card. Low density line cards are identified by the label on the lower ejector lever.

(1)  Support for the low-density version of a line card depends on the release of the SmartEdge OS.

(2)  Because the TX SFP is larger than a standard SFP, you cannot insert two TX SFPs side by side on the 20-port GE1020 line card.


2.12   Connect and Route Cables with the Adjustable Cable Tray

Figure 22   Cable Routing at the Front of the SmartEdge 800 Chassis

Figure 23   FE–GE Breakout Cable

Figure 24   Routing an FE–GE Breakout Cable

Using the adjustable cable tray, you connect and route the copper cables, with the exception of the FE–GE breakout cables, from the outer slots first, working inward, placing them in the inner partition. After all copper cables are routed, you can connect and route the fiber-optic cables in similar fashion, but placing them in the outer partition; see Figure 22. You then connect and route the management access cables and finally the FE–GE breakout cables. Cable connections are made with standard cables.


 Caution! 
Risk of damage to fiber-optic cables. These cables are fragile and are easily damaged when bent. To reduce the risk, never step on a cable; never twist it when connecting it to or disconnecting it from a line card.

Perform the following steps to connect and route the cables at the front of the chassis:

  1. Connect and route the copper cables; see Figure 22
    1. Insert each cable in the appropriate connector on the card.
    2. Starting with the cards installed in the outer slots (1 to 3, 12 to 14), loosely bundle the cables for a card between the cable guides for that card.
    3. Insert the bundle into the inner area of each bracket on that side of the chassis.
    4. Tie-wrap the bundled cables from each card to the outside edge of the rack.
    5. Continue routing all nonfiber cables, working toward the inner slots (4 to 6 and 9 to 11).
  2. Connect and route the fiber-optic cables; see Figure 22
    1. Insert each cable in the appropriate connector on the card.
    2. Starting with the line cards installed in the outer slots (1 to 3, 12 to 14), loosely bundle the cables for a card between the cable guides for that card.
    3. Insert the bundle into the outer area of each bracket on that side of the chassis.
    4. Continue routing all fiber-optic cables, working toward the inner slots (4 to 6 and 9 to 11).
  3. Connect and route the management access cables, depending on the type of management access you have selected; see Figure 19 for connecting a management workstation and Figure 20 for connecting a local or remote console.

    Perform the following steps to connect and route the cables:

    1. Insert each cable in the appropriate connector on the card.
    2. Loosely bundle the cables between the cable guides for a controller card and insert them in outer partition in each bracket on that side of the chassis.
    3. Tie-wrap the cables from each card to form a bundle, and then tie each bundle to the outside edge of the rack.
  4. Connect and route the breakout cables for the FE–GE line cards:
    1. Starting with the outer slots on the left side of the chassis, attach a breakout cable to the lowest connector to be cabled on the FE–GE line cards. Position the connector so that the incised label “KEY” on the connector is on the left side of the connector as you face the chassis; see Figure 23.

       Caution! 
      Risk of equipment damage. The cable connector is keyed to ensure that you insert it with the correct orientation into the front panel connector. However, it is possible to force an incorrectly positioned cable connector into the connector on the front panel. To reduce the risk of overriding the key, ensure that the incised “KEY” label is on the left side of the connector.
    2. Tighten the captive screws without letting the front panel support the weight of the cable.

       Caution! 
      Risk of equipment damage. A breakout cable for the 60 10/100 ports on the FE–GE line cards is made of AWG #24 wire and includes individual cables for 12 ports; when connected to the FE–GE front panel, the cable weight can cause the front panel to be separated from the FE–GE printed circuit board. To reduce the risk, never allow the front panel to support the weight of the cable; support the cable and immediately route it before you connect another cable.
    3. Place the cable on top of the cable tray, and route the cable to the left, regardless of the slot in which you have installed the FE–GE line card; see Figure 24. This routing direction is compatible with the construction of the cable (the attachment of the MRJ21 connector to the cable itself).

       Caution! 
      Risk of equipment damage. Routing the cable to the right side of the chassis puts additional strain on the front panel. To reduce the risk, never route the cable to the right.
    4. Bundle and tie-wrap the breakout cables from the card and then tie-wrap the bundle to the rack.
    5. Continue connecting and routing the breakout cables from the other FE–GE cards.

2.13   Connect and Route Cables with the Extended Cable Tray

With the extended cable tray, you connect and route the fiber-optic cables from the inner slots first, working outward, placing the cables for each card in its partition as described in step 2. After you have routed all fiber-optic cables, you can connect and route the copper cables in similar fashion as described in step 1; and the management access cables as described in step 3. Finally, you connect and route the breakout cables for the FE–GE line card as described in step 4.

2.15   Connect and Route the Cables at the Rear of the Chassis

Cable connections for the ATM DS-3, DS-3, and E3 ports and to external timing equipment are made with standard cables. Slots and ports for the ATM DS-3, DS-3, and E3 cards are labeled on the rear panel of the chassis.

Figure 25   Port Assignments for Connectors at the Rear of the Chassis

Note:  
This task is not applicable to the SmartEdge 800s chassis, which has no BNC connectors.

Perform the following steps to connect and route the BNC and external timing cables at the rear of the chassis:

  1. For ATM DS-3, DS-3, and E3 cards installed in slots 1 to 5 and 10 to 14, attach the cables to the BNC connectors at the rear of the chassis. Because of the close proximity of the connectors, a Trompeter tool (to insert or extract BNC cables) can help you make the connections; see Figure 26. To use the tool to connect a cable:
    1. Place the tool over the end of the cable so that it grips the cable connector.
    2. Use the tool to position the cable connector on the appropriate connector on the chassis.
    3. Rotate the tool in a clockwise direction to lock the cable connector in place.

Figure 26   Using a Trompeter Tool

  1. Route the BNC cables at the rear of the chassis; see Figure 27
    1. Gather the BNC cables from each column of connectors (cables for a single card) and tie-wrap them; each bundle will contain both the transmit and receive cables for each port in that column.
    2. Tie each bundle to a cable bracket.

      Working from the outer slots, tie the bundle of cables for each slot to a cable bracket, depending on the proximity of the bracket to the bundle. Direct the bundles for slots 10 though 14 toward the brackets on the left side of the chassis; bundles for slots 1 to 5 are directed toward the brackets on the right side of the chassis.

  2. Optional. Connect and route the external timing cables; see Figure 28:

    Attach the DB-9 ends of the external timing cables to the primary and secondary connectors, labeled “PRIMARY” and “SECONDARY”, at the center rear of the SmartEdge 800 chassis; tie the cables to the rack.

    If your cables do not have a connector on the system end, you can install an adapter, available as an option, in each chassis connector and then wirewrap the cable pins to the adapter.

Figure 28   External Timing Cable Routing at the Rear of the Chassis

2.16   Connect the Cables from the Front of the Chassis

Perform the following steps to connect the cables from the front of the chassis:

  1. Connect the line card cables to their networks.
  2. Ensure that the management access equipment is configured properly according to the specifications given in the “ Management Access Options” section in Site Preparation
  3. Connect the management access cables to the equipment or their networks; perform this step for one or more of these options, depending on the cables you have connected to the system:
    1. Management workstation; see Figure 19.
    2. Console terminal; see Figure 20.

2.17   Connect the Cables from the Rear of the Chassis

Perform the following steps to connect the cables from the rear of the chassis:

  1. If you have installed any ATM DS-3, DS-3, or E3 cables, connect the female end of each BNC cable to its network.
  2. If you have installed external timing cables, attach the unterminated ends of the cables to the wire wrap posts of the external equipment.
  3. Complete the power connections to the external fuse panel or circuit breaker panel. The procedure for the circuit breaker panel is beyond the scope of this book; to complete the connections to a fuse panel, perform the following steps:
    1. Remove the fuses for the A-side and B-side connectors on the external fuse panel.
    2. Connect the A-side power cables to the A-side –48V and RTN connectors on the external fuse panel.
    3. If you are installing redundant power, connect the B-side power cables to the B-side –48V and RTN connectors on the external fuse panel.

     Warning! 
    Risk of electrical shock. After the power cables are connected to the chassis and the fuse panel, the system is fully powered on; there is no power switch. To reduce the risk, always remove the fuses from the fuse panel or if there is a circuit breaker, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, before connecting or disconnecting a power cable.

2.18   Connections for Equipment and Network Ends Cables

To connect the cables from the front of the chassis:

  1. Connect the line card cables to their networks.
  2. Ensure that the management access equipment is configured properly.
  3. Connect the management access cables to the equipment or their networks; perform this step for one or more of these options, depending on the cables you have connected to the system.

To connect the cables from the rear of the chassis:

  1. If you have installed external timing cables, attach the unterminated ends of the cables to the wire-wrap posts of the external equipment.
  2. Complete the power connection to the external fuse panel or circuit breaker panel. The procedure for the circuit breaker panel is beyond the scope of this book.
  3. Connect the management access cables to the equipment or their networks; perform this step for one or more of these options, depending on the cables you have connected to the system.

To connect to a fuse panel:

  1. Remove the fuses for the connectors on the external fuse panel that you intend to use for the four pairs of the power cables.
  2. Connect the primary power zone 1 cables (A1) to their –48V and RTN connectors on the external fuse panel.
  3. Connect the primary power zone 2 cables (A2) to their –48V and RTN connectors on the external fuse panel.
  4. If you are installing redundant power, connect the backup power zone 1 and power zone 2 cables (B1 and B2) to their –48V and RTN connectors on the external fuse panel.

 Warning! 
Risk of electrical shock. After the power cables are connected to the chassis and the fuse panel, the system is fully powered on; there is no power switch. To reduce the risk, always remove the fuses from the fuse panel or if there is a circuit breaker, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, before connecting or disconnecting a power cable.

2.19   Powering On and Powering Off the System


 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. A DC-powered system uses –48 VDC power, is powered from a fuse panel, and can be damaged by overloaded circuits. To reduce the risk, ensure that the fuses in the external fuse panel are suitably rated for the installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code (in the United States) or applicable local jurisdiction (outside the United States) installation requirements.

You power on a SmartEdge 800 router by inserting the fuses in the external fuse panel. The PWR A and PWR B LEDs on the front of the chassis should light, depending on the power connections you have made, to signify that power is being supplied.

Figure 29   SmartEdge 800 Status LEDs

During the power-on sequence for a SmartEdge router, the line cards are held in low-power mode until the SmartEdge OS determines which slot has the active controller card. After the active controller card (and the standby controller card, if it is installed) are initialized, the SmartEdge OS initializes the configured line cards starting with the lowest-numbered slot. If a line card is not configured, no power is allocated to it.

If the chassis power capacity is exceeded before all configured cards are initialized, the remaining cards are left in low-power mode. You must manually unconfigure one of the initialized line cards (using the no form of the card command in global configuration mode) before the SmartEdge OS can initialize these power-denied cards. Because the power capacity check is always performed when line cards are configured from the CLI (using the card command or the port command in global configuration mode), no cards are denied power during the power-on sequence unless mismatched controller cards are installed.

If the active and standby controller versions are different, the SmartEdge OS allocates power for both controller cards, initializes them, and issues a controller mismatch alarm.

The SmartEdge OS always reserves enough power during system configuration so that if the system has only a single controller card installed, a standby controller card of the same type can be installed at a later time.

To power off the system, remove the fuses on both the A- and B-sides in the fuse panel.

2.20   Power-On Diagnostics

Power-on diagnostics verify the correct operation of the controller cards, the backplane, fan and alarm unit (referred to as the fantray), and each installed line card during a power-on or reload sequence of the SmartEdge router. These tests also run whenever a controller or line card is installed in a running system. The power-on diagnostics for each component consist of a series of tests, each of which can indicate a component failure.

Note:  
A description of each test is beyond the scope of this guide.

During each test, the power-on diagnostics display results and status; if an error occurs during the testing of a card, the test lights the FAIL LED on the failing card, but does not stop the loading of the SmartEdge OS. A failure on the backplane, fan and alarm unit causes the FAN LED on the fan and alarm unit to light.

The maximum test time is 130 seconds: 60 seconds for a controller card, 10 seconds for the backplane and fan and alarm unit, and 5 seconds for each installed line card. If the system has two controller cards, the controller tests run in parallel.

To display results from power-on diagnostics, enter one of the following commands in any mode:

show diag pod component

show diag podcomponentdetail

Line card

card n (slot number 1 to 6 or 9 to 14)

The detail keyword allows you to determine which test the component has failed.

In general, if a component fails to pass its power-on diagnostic tests, you need to replace it or make arrangements for its replacement. Contact your local technical support representative for more information about the results of a failed test.

Power-on diagnostics are enabled by default in the SmartEdge OS; if they have been disabled, you can enable them with the following command in global configuration mode:

diag pod

3   Hardware Control and Troubleshooting

The operating system command-line interface (CLI) includes commands that display hardware configuration and status information, allow hardware troubleshooting, and provide hardware control and recovery. You enter all commands through the management port or the console port on the active controller card. When the system is powered on or reloaded, the active controller card is in slot 7.

The mode in which you enter a command is as follows:

3.1   Hardware Status

The CLI commands that display status information, such as power, temperature, ports, alarms, and bit error rate tests (BERTs), for the fan and alarm unit and individual cards and ports.

Table 46    Definitions of Temperature Conditions

Condition

Description

COLD

Expected when the system first powers up in a cool or well air-conditioned environment.

NORMAL

Normal operating temperature.

HOT

The card is running above normal operating temperature. The lifespan of the card will likely be reduced if this condition persists. The ambient temperature of the room could be too hot, or the chassis air filter or fans might need cleaning or replacing.


When the card temperature is greater than TEMP_HOT for longer than 5 minutes, the system generates a minor alarm; if the condition persists longer than one hour, it generates a major alarm.

EXTREME

The card is running well above normal operating temperature. The lifespan of the card will be reduced if this condition persists. The ambient temperature of the room is likely too hot, or the chassis air filter or fans might need cleaning or replacing.


When the card temperature reaches TEMP_EXTREME, the system generates a major alarm.

N/A

Temperature does not apply to this unit, or this unit does not have a built-in temperature sensor.

3.11   Troubleshoot with System Power and Alarm LEDs

In most cases, the overall status of a SmartEdge 800 system is indicated by the two sets of LEDs located on the front of the fan and alarm unit. If you are experiencing hardware problems, check the LEDs to determine the possible cause and solution.

Table 57    Problems Indicated by Power and Alarm LEDs

Problem

Solution

FAN (red) is on; one or more fans are not operating.

Replace the fan and alarm unit.

PWR A or PWR B (green) is off.

No power is present at the A-side or B-side power input; perform the following checks or actions:


  • Remove and check the fuse for the A-side or B-side DC power source at the external fuse panel. Replace the fuse, if necessary.

  • Remove the fuse for the A-side or B-side power source at the external fuse panel; then check the connections for the A-side or B-side power source at the external fuse panel. Correct any loose connections, and replace the fuse.

  • Remove the fuses for both power sources at the external fuse panel; then remove the cover that shields the power filters and check the connections for the power cables at the A- or B-side power filter. Correct any loose connections, replace the cover, and then replace the fuses.

MAJOR (red) is on; one or more line cards are not operable (in low-power mode), resulting from a mismatched pair of controller cards (the standby controller card is not the same version as the active controller card).

Remove the standby controller card; if available, install a standby controller card of the same version as the active controller card.

3.11.4   Optical Port Alarms

The tables in this section apply to ports on the ATM OC and Packet over SONET/SDH (POS) line cards.

Note:  
If a major or critical alarm occurs on an ATM or a POS port and that port is a member of an Automatic Protection Switching (APS) group, either as a protected or a working port, the alarm is downgraded to a minor alarm because the service is protected by the redundant port. For configuration and management information for APS ports and groups, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net. The severity levels in the table are the default levels, not the degraded levels.

3.12   Troubleshooting with Card Status LEDs

The equipment and facility LEDs on each card display the status of individual cards and their ports. See Card Descriptions for definitions of equipment and facility LEDs.

If you are experiencing hardware problems, check the LEDs to determine the possible problem and solution.

Table 78    Problems Indicated by Card Status LEDs

Problem

Solution

FAIL (red) is on.

The card has failed. Replace the card.

ACTIVE (green) is off.

Perform the following checks or actions:


Check the STDBY LED:


  • If the STDBY LED is on, this is a normal condition.

  • If the STDBY LED is off, check the FAIL LED.

 

Check the FAIL LED:


  • If the FAIL LED is on, replace the card.

  • If the FAIL LED is off, check the FAIL LED.

LOS (yellow) is on.

The port is experiencing a loss of signal. Check the cable connections and correct them if necessary.

SYNC (green) is off.

This condition is normal if no external timing cable is installed. Otherwise, all external timing signals have failed; the system is running with the onboard controller clock. Check the cable connections and correct them if necessary.

EXTERNAL TIMING LOS PRI (yellow) is on.

The signal is not present or an external timing source has not been configured. Check the cable connection; to check the configuration, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

EXTERNAL TIMING LOS SEC (yellow) is on.

The signal is not present or an external timing source has not been configured. Check the cable connection; to check the configuration, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

Note:  
Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet cards do not have STDBY LEDs.

3.13   Troubleshooting with On-Demand Diagnostics

You initiate an on-demand diagnostic (ODD) session (one or more tests) from the SmartEdge OS command-line interface (CLI). These tests diagnose the standby controller card and line cards. You can also run tests on more than one card simultaneously. The following guidelines apply to the on-demand testing of traffic and controller cards:

Four levels of tests are supported; not all cards support all levels of tests.

Table 79    ODD Tests

Level

Components

Tests

1

All

Duplicates the tests of the power-on diagnostics; runs in 5 to 10 seconds.

2

Standby controller card, line cards only

Includes level 1 tests; tests a8,0.ll onboard active components in the line interface module (LIM) of the board, including memory, registers, PPA DIMMs and SRAM, PPA and other onboard processors; runs in 5 to 10 minutes.

3

Line cards only

Includes level 2 tests; tests and verifies the card data paths for the entire card with internal loopbacks; runs in 10 to 15 minutes.

4

Line cards only

Includes level 3 tests; tests the entire card using external loopbacks; must be run on site with external loopback cables installed; runs in 10 to 15 minutes.

A session log stores the latest results for each card in main memory and also on the internal-storage device for low-level software; a history file stores the results for each session for the last 100 sessions on that internal-storage device.

You can display partial test results while the tests are in progress; a notification message is displayed when the session is completed. To view the results, use the show diag command with the on-demand keyword in any mode. You can display the latest results for a card from the log or the results for one or more sessions from the history file.

If you are connected to the system using the Ethernet management port, you must enter the terminal monitor command (in exec mode) before you start the test session so that the system displays the completion message. For more information about the terminal monitor command, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

Remove and install DS-3 or E-3 cables.

4.1   Servicing Line Cards


 Stop! 
Risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling the card. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface. Avoid touching the card, components, or any connector pins.

Figure 30   Removing a Card

Figure 31   Replacing a Card


 Stop! 
Risk of equipment malfunction. If you install or replace a card in a running system and the system is not fully operational, you can cause the system to malfunction.

After you replace a line card or change its physical configuration, you must enter SmartEdge OS commands from the command-line interface (CLI) to restore the card to normal operations.

Make sure the system is fully operational before proceeding with the installation or replacement procedure:

4.2   Servicing Controller Cards

The second controller card must be the same type and have the same memory size as the current controller card; you can check the Common Language Equipment Identifier (CLEI) codes to ensure that they are identical.


 Stop! 
Risk of ESD damage. A controller card contains electrostatic-sensitive devices. To reduce the risk of ESD damage, always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling any card. Avoid touching its printed circuit board, components, or any connector pins.

4.2.1   Adding a Second Controller Card

Perform the following steps to add a second controller card to a configuration:

  1. Prepare for the addition:
    1. Optional. Upgrade the active controller to run the latest release of the system software.

      For instructions to display the release information and to upgrade the active controller to a new software release, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

    2. Put on an antistatic wrist strap and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface; an ESD convenience jack is located on the front of the fan and alarm unit.
    3. Loosen the captive screws and remove the blank card that is installed in slot 7 or 8.

      If the software release on the controller card that you are installing is different from the release on the active controller, the active controller overwrites the release on the second controller card after you complete the installation procedure.


       Caution! 
      Risk of ESD damage. A controller card contains electrostatic sensitive devices. To reduce the risk of ESD damage, always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling any card. Avoid touching its printed circuit board, components, or any connector pins.
  2. Install the card.

    The second controller card must have the same memory size as the current controller card; check the Common Language Equipment Identifier (CLEI) codes to ensure that they are identical.


     Caution! 

    Risk of data loss. If the controller cards are not the same type with the same main memory configuration, the system might need to shut down one or more line cards to free enough available power for the standby controller card. The SmartEdge OS always reserves enough power during system configuration so that if the system has only a single controller card installed, a standby controller card of the same type can be installed at a later time.

    If the controller cards are mismatched, the system issues an alarm for mismatched controllers, allocates power for the second controller card, and recalculates available power. If the available power is not sufficient to power all the installed line cards, the SmartEdge OS begins putting installed line cards into low-power mode, starting with the highest-numbered slot, until enough power is available to initialize the standby controller card. To reduce the risk of line card shutdown, always ensure that the controller cards are identical before you install a second controller card.
  3. If the first controller card includes an external storage device, install an external storage device in the controller card you have just installed.
  4. Verify the operational status: the FAIL LED must not be on.
  5. Generally, duplicate the cable connections of the active controller card on the standby controller card and route the cables accordingly.

After you have installed the card, the system ensures that both controller cards are running the same release of the system software, and downloads the release on the active controller card to the new standby controller card, if necessary.

4.2.2   Replacing a Controller Card

If the system configuration includes a single controller card, you will disrupt traffic when you remove the card.

Do not use this procedure to upgrade a controller card with a later version; instead, perform one of the upgrade procedures described in Upgrading a Controller Card.

If the software release on the controller card that you are installing is different from the release on the active controller, the active controller overwrites the release on the replacement controller card after you complete the replacement procedure.


 Caution! 
Risk of data loss. Controller cards are hot swappable, but if the system configuration includes redundant controller cards, you can disrupt traffic if you remove the active controller card. To reduce the risk, verify that the card being removed is not the active controller (that is, the STDBY LED is on).

Perform the following steps to replace a controller card:

  1. Prepare for replacement:
    1. Optional. If you are replacing one of a pair of controller cards, upgrade the active controller to run the latest release of the system software.

      For procedures to display the release information and to upgrade the active controller to a new software release, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

    2. If possible, in a system with dual controller cards, ensure that the system is fully operational: the standby controller must be fully synchronized with the active controller card. Use the show redundancy command to display the status of the standby controller.
    3. If there is an external storage device installed in the controller card, dismount the device; enter the following command in exec mode:

      unmount /md

  2. Put on an antistatic wrist strap and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface; an ESD convenience jack is located on the front of the fan and alarm unit.
  3. Label and disconnect any cables from the front of the controller card being removed.

     Caution! 
    Risk of equipment failure. Removing the controller card with its external storage device without first entering the unmount /md command (in exec mode) can permanently damage the device and cause the kernel to crash. To reduce the risk, always enter the unmount /md command before removing a controller card.

     Caution! 
    Risk of data loss. You can lose data that is being transferred to the external storage device if you enter the unmount /md command (in exec mode) before the data transfer operation is complete. To reduce the risk, do not enter the unmount /md command while the CF ACTIVE LED is blinking. When the operation is complete, the LED is turned off.

     Caution! 
    Risk of ESD damage. A controller card contains electrostatic sensitive devices. To reduce the risk of ESD damage, always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling any card. Avoid touching its printed circuit board, components, or any connector pins.
  4. Remove the current card.
  5. Install the card.

    If you are replacing one of a pair of controller cards, the replacement controller card must have the same memory size as the current controller card; check the CLEI codes to ensure that they are identical.


     Caution! 

    Risk of data loss. If the controller cards are not the same type with the same main memory configuration, the system might need to shut down one or more line cards to free enough available power for the standby controller card. The SmartEdge OS always reserves enough power during system configuration so that if the system has only a single controller card installed, a standby controller card of the same type can be installed at a later time.

    If the controller cards are mismatched, the system issues an alarm for mismatched controllers, allocates power for the second controller card, and recalculates available power. If the available power is not sufficient to power all the installed line cards, the SmartEdge OS begins putting installed line cards into low-power mode, starting with the highest-numbered slot, until enough power is available to initialize the standby controller card. To reduce the risk of line card shutdown, always ensure that the controller cards are identical before you install a second controller card
  6. If an external storage device was installed in the previous controller card, remove the device from its slot and install it in the new controller card; perform the procedure in the “ Removing a CF Card” section.
  7. Verify the operational status: the FAIL LED must not be on.
  8. Reconnect the cables you previously disconnected.

If you have replaced one of a pair of controller cards, the system ensures that both controller cards are running the same release of the system software and downloads the release on the active controller to the new standby controller, if necessary.

4.2.3   Upgrading a Controller Card

Later versions of the controller card (XCRP4) provide more processing power and more memory than the XCRP version of the controller card.

In a dual-controller system, you must upgrade both controller cards. You cannot mix controller types in the same chassis.


 Caution! 
XCRP4 Controller cards require more power than earlier Controller cards and, as a result, can limit the number of line cards that you can install in a SmartEdge 800 chassis. The maximum power required for all components, including line cards and chassis components, must not exceed 1,920 watts (40 amperes@–48 VDC).

To upgrade any controller card in a system to a later version, perform the following steps:

  1. Power down the SmartEdge router. You cannot upgrade the controller cards in a running system.
  2. Replace each controller card currently installed in the chassis. In a dual-controller system, you must replace both controller cards. To replace a controller card, perform steps 1 to 4 in the procedure described in Replacing a Controller Card.
    Note:  
    Both replacement controller cards must be the same version with the same amount of memory. You cannot mix controller types or memory configurations in the same chassis.

  3. Power on the SmartEdge router.
  4. Verify the operational status of both controller cards: the FAIL LED must not be on.
  5. Reconnect the cables you previously disconnected.
  6. Determine if you need to upgrade the SmartEdge OS that is shipped on the card.

    Enter the show version command in exec mode. If the displayed release version is not 2.5.3 or later, you must upgrade the SmartEdge OS to Release 2.5.3 or later before upgrading to the Controller card. If the displayed release version is not 6.1.3 or later, you must upgrade the SmartEdge OS to Release 6.1.3 or later before upgrading to the XCRP4 Controller card. The procedure to upgrade the SmartEdge OS to a later release is described in the release notes for that release.

4.2.4   Removing a CF Card

Removing the CF card without first entering the unmount /md command can permanently damage the CF card and cause the kernel to crash. To reduce the risk, always enter the unmount /md command before removing a CF card.

For more information about the unmount command, see the command list located at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.


 Stop! 
Risk of data loss. Do not enter the unmount /md command while the CF ACTIVE LED is blinking. You can lose data that is being transferred to the CF card if you enter the unmount /md command before the data transfer operation is complete. When the operation is complete, the LED is turned off.

To remove a CF card:

  1. Enter the following command in exec mode: unmount /md.
  2. If you are removing the CF card in an XCRP4 Controller card, perform the following steps:
    1. Open the door that covers the CF Type 1 slot until it “snaps” open. This action begins unmounting the file system on the CF card. The CF Active LED blinks during the unmounting process.
    2. Wait until the CF Active LED stops blinking. It is now safe to remove the CF card.
    Note:  
    If the system cannot successfully unmount the file system on the CF card, the CF Active LED stops blinking and is off. You must enter the unmount command (in exec mode) to unmount the file system on the card.

  3. Press the ejection button that is inside the CF slot twice (first to cause the button to protrude from within its recess and second to disengage the CF card from its connectors.)

  4. Grasp the CF card and pull gently and slowly until the CF card is disengaged from the internal pins.
  5. Close the door.

4.2.5   Installing a CF Card

Figure 32   Installing a CF Card

Each controller card has an external slot on the front panel in which you can install an optional Type I CF card.

Note:  
The XCRP4 Controller card supports Type I CF cards only.

If a CF card is installed in the active controller card, the standby controller card, if installed, must also have a CF card installed.

For detailed instructions on how to install a CF card, see Install CF Cards.

4.3   Replacing a Transceiver

Transceivers are hot-swappable; you can replace any transceiver without removing the Gigabit Ethernet card. However, you must shut down the port before performing the replacement procedure.

Figure 33   GBIC Transceivers

Figure 34   SFP Transceivers

Figure 35   XFP Transceivers

To remove a transceiver of any type:

  1. Shut down all activities on the port with the transceiver you want to replace. see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.
  2. Put on an antistatic wrist strap and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface; an ESD convenience jack is located on the front of the fan tray.

     Caution! 
    Risk of damage to fiber-optic cables. Never stop on a cable; never twist it when connecting it to or disconnecting it from a line card.
  3. Label and disconnect any cables attached to the transceiver you want to replace.

    Release the latching mechanism:

    1. If the transceiver has a wire handle, unlatch it, and rotate it 90° to 180°.
    2. If the transceiver has latching tabs, squeeze and hold the tabs.
  4. Withdraw the transceiver from its port and insert a dust cover over the optical connectors.

4.4   Cleaning Optical Connectors

Clean fiber-optic components are a requirement for quality connections between fiber-optic equipment. For more information, see Inspection and Cleaning Procedures for Fiber-Optic Connections.

For more information, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

4.5   Servicing the Advanced Services Engine


 Caution! 
Risk of ESD damage. A services card contains electrostatic-sensitive devices. To reduce the risk of ESD damage, always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling any card. Avoid touching its printed circuit board, components, or any connector pins.

4.5.1   Adding an ASE Card

To add an ASE card to an operational system:

  1. Ensure that the system is fully operational:
    1. In a system with dual controller cards, the standby controller must be fully synchronized with the active controller card. Use the show redundancy command (in any mode) to display the status of the standby controller.
    2. In a system with a single controller card, ensure that you have the CLI prompt on the console.
  2. Select the proper slot for a services card.
  3. Put on an antistatic wrist strap and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface; an ESD convenience jack is located on the front of the fan tray.
  4. Loosen the captive screws and remove the blank card that is installed in the slot for the new card.
  5. Install the card.
  6. After the card has been installed, verify the operational status.
  7. Connect and route the cables.

    If you are having difficulty installing a new card, perform the following checks or actions:

    1. Ensure that you are not attempting to install a controller card in any slot other than slot 7 or 8.
    2. If you are attempting to install a services card in slot 7 or 8, select a different slot; services cards can be installed in slots 1 to 6 and 9 to 14 only.
    3. Ensure that the card is properly aligned with the slot guides.
    Note:  
    If you have already configured the slot by using the card command (in global configuration mode) and the services card is not the same type as the services card that you configured for the slot, the system does not initialize the new services card; instead, it is held in low-power mode with its components in reset mode. If the type of services card is the same as the slot configuration, the system initializes the card.

4.5.2   Replacing an ASE Card

Perform the following steps to remove an existing services card and replace it with a new card:

  1. Ensure that the system is fully operational:
    1. In a system with dual controller cards, the standby controller must be fully synchronized with the active controller card. Use the show redundancy command to display the status of the standby controller.
    2. In a system with a single controller card, ensure that you have the CLI prompt on the console.
  2. Prepare for replacement:
    1. Put on an antistatic wrist strap and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface; an ESD convenience jack is located on the front of the fan tray.
    2. Label and disconnect any cables from the front of the card being removed.
    3. If the card has optical ports, install rubber covers over the connectors.

       Caution! 
      Risk of ESD damage. A services card contains electrostatic-sensitive devices. To reduce the risk of ESD damage, always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling any card. Avoid touching its printed circuit board, components, or any connector pins.
  3. Remove the current card.
  4. Install the new card.
  5. Check the LEDs on the new card to ensure proper operational status.
  6. Reconnect the cables you previously disconnected.
  7. Use the SmartEdge OS CLI software to restore the card to normal operations.

4.6   Replacing the Fan Tray and Alarm Unit

Figure 36   Replacing the Fan and Alarm Unit

You do not have to power off the system to remove the fan and alarm unit, because the SmartEdge 800 router can operate without the fans for a short period of time.

If you are replacing the fan and alarm unit in a SmartEdge 800s or the SmartEdge Network Equipment Building Standards (NEBS)-compliant chassis, you must install a NEBS-compliant fan and alarm unit; only the SmartEdge 800e chassis supports either an enhanced or a NEBS-compliant fan and alarm unit. Figure 36 illustrates the SmartEdge 800 chassis with the NEBS-compliant fan and alarm unit.


 Caution! 
Risk of ESD damage. The fan and alarm unit contains electrostatic sensitive devices. To reduce the risk of ESD damage, always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap when handling it. Avoid touching its printed circuit board, components, or any connector pins.

Perform the following steps to replace the fan and alarm unit:

  1. Put on an antistatic wrist strap and attach it to an appropriate grounded surface. Do not attach the wrist strap to a painted surface; an ESD convenience jack is located on the front of the fan and alarm unit.
  2. Remove the unit; see Figure 36
    1. Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the captive screws on the front of the unit. These screws are behind the front cover of the unit; you do not need to remove the cover to loosen the screws.

      If you are removing the NEBS-compliant fan and alarm unit, you can view the screw location from below the fan and alarm unit; the bottom panel of the NEBS version of the unit is recessed.

    2. Gently slide it out of the chassis and set it aside.
  3. Install the new unit:
    1. Insert the unit into the chassis.
    2. With a Phillips screwdriver, tighten the screws on the front of the unit to a maximum torque of 5.0 inch-lbs (0.6 Newton-meters).
  4. Check the LEDs on the front of the unit; the FAN LED must not be on.
  5. Replace the air filter and update the service date; see Replacing the Air Filter.

    If you do not replace the air filter and then update the service date, the service date stored in the fan and alarm unit will not be valid for the air filter.

4.7   Replacing the Air Filter

The SmartEdge 800 chassis has a built-in air filter that is used in conjunction with the fan and alarm unit to cool the system. The filter is mounted at the bottom of the chassis, below the fan and alarm unit. A label on the filter allows you to record the date when the filter should be replaced. We recommend that you change this filter every six months (or more often, if required) to ensure the correct airflow through the chassis.


 Caution! 
Risk of equipment damage. A working fan and alarm unit and air filter are required by the SmartEdge 800 chassis for it to operate without causing an over temperature condition that can damage the system components. To reduce the risk, always replace the fan and alarm unit or the air filter within three minutes of its removal.

Perform the following steps to replace the air filter:

  1. On the label of the replacement filter, record the date that it should be replaced.
  2. Remove the current filter: standing at the front of the chassis, reach under the chassis to the filter, and grasp the tab at the front of the filter; then push the filter back toward the rear of the chassis and at the same time, pull down on the tab. You will feel the spring at the rear of the chassis give, and the filter will clear the restraining lip at the front of the chassis.
  3. Insert the replacement filter: insert the filter under the chassis and press it into the spring at the rear of the chassis to clear the restraining lip of the chassis; then lift the front of the filter and let it snap into place behind the restraining lip.
  4. Update the service date for the air filter; either enter the following command in exec mode, or ask the system administrator to do so:

    service air-filter

The system updates the service date in the EEPROM of the fan and alarm unit, according to the service interval configured by the system administrator.

5   System Description

The SmartEdge800 router is a carrier-class product with an architecture that supports packetized traffic. The SmartEdge 800 router can be used as an edge aggregation router and simultaneously as a broadband remote-access server (BRAS) to directly connect customers to the network. It supports a variety of interfaces and vital services, such as routing protocols, quality of service (QoS), and inbound and outbound access control lists (ACLs). New services can easily be added with software upgrades.

Because of the optimized packet-forwarding capabilities and support of high bandwidth uplink interfaces, the SmartEdge 800 router can also be used in the metropolitan core to aggregate traffic from other routers into the long-haul transit core.

(1)  On optical cards, each port has separate connectors for the transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) circuits.

(2)  The low-density version of a card provides a limited number of ports that are enabled through software entitlement.

(3)  Protection features for various types of cards and ports are dependent on the release of the SmartEdge OS; the system supports a mix of protected and unprotected ports.

(4)  The SmartEdge 800s chassis does not support ATM DS-3 line cards; they are restricted to slots 1 to 5 and 10 to 15 in any other SmartEdge 800 chassis.

(5)  Because the TX SFP is larger than a standard SFP, you cannot insert two TX SFPs side by side on the 20-port GE1020 line card.

(6)  The SmartEdge 800s chassis does not support DS-3 and E3 line cards.

(1)  The SmartEdge OS does not support these ports directly.

(2)  These ports are not used for control or data traffic.


5.5   Packet Mesh Architecture

The SmartEdge 800 router implements a grid of cross connections in its backplane that allows any line card to communicate directly to any other line card in the chassis. The feature allows incoming packets to be directly routed from the receiving line card to the line card that will transmit them to the network. Each line card uses a combination of a Packet Mesh ASIC (PMA) and Packet Processing ASICs (PPAs) to perform this function.

5.6   Redundancy

The architecture of the system is fully redundant for all traffic-affecting components. Redundancy features include:

5.7   Alarms

System alarms include:

Pressing the ACO button silences an audible alarm and lights the ACO LED; pressing the button again turns off the ACO LED. Support for the ACO button depends on the release of the operating system.

Access to mounting screws from front (enclosed side panels). Provides improved control and monitoring of the fan speed; maintains fan speed even when there are power fluctuations and provides increased airflow for improved cooling.

5.10.1   Chassis Card Cage

The SmartEdge 800 chassis has 14 slots with 2 slots dedicated to the controller cards and 12 slots available for a flexible combination of line cards. A separate area of the chassis has fans for forced-air cooling. The SmartEdge 800 chassis is designed for mounting in a standard 19- or 23-inch rack.

All cards are installed at the front of the chassis. With the exception of the line cards that use BNC connectors, the cards have port connectors on their front panels. Connectors for the cards that use BNC connectors are installed in slots 1 to 5 and 10 to 14. These BNC connectors are not available on the SmartEdge 800s chassis.

5.10.2   Cable Tray

A cable tray is located below the card slots. This unit provides the means to route the cables from the front of the chassis to the external equipment. The adjustable cable tray provides separators that separate the copper from the fiber-optic cables; the separators are adjustable to allow different mixes of cable types. The extended cable tray requires no adjustments regardless of the number and types of installed cables.

The extended cable tray requires no adjustments regardless of the number and types of installed cables.

5.10.3   Chassis Cooling

The fan and alarm unit has the system LEDs mounted on it at the front of the chassis; system LEDs include power status (A and B sources), alarm status (critical, major, minor), a failure LED for the fan and alarm unit itself, and an alarm cutoff (ACO) button and its associated LED.

The ACO button provides one means of silencing an audible alarm; pressing the ACO button silences an audible alarm and lights the ACO LED; pressing the button again turns off the ACO LED and, if the alarm condition has not been corrected, sounds the alarm.

Note:  
Support for the ACO button depends on the release of the SmartEdge OS.

Cable brackets at the rear of the chassis provide the means for routing BNC cables and keeping them orderly.

The chassis is cooled with six fans contained in the fan and alarm unit. A single fan failure does not impact the operation of the system; however, to prevent overheating, the unit must be replaced as soon as possible. To maintain the airflow through the chassis, empty slots have blank cards installed.

The rear of the chassis has connectors for power (A and B sides), alarm outputs, status inputs, dual external timing inputs for synchronization, and dual RS-232 ports for local connections.

Note:  
The SmartEdge OS does not support the alarm, status, and RS-232 dial-up modem ports.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) jacks are conveniently located on both the front and the rear of the chassis.

6.1   Controller Card

The SmartEdge 800 router supports the XCRP4 Controller card. This controller card supports applications that require high volumes of traffic; it also supports more subscribers than the other controller cards. The interface to BITS or SSU equipment does not support the transmission of timing data to the external equipment.

The controller card is responsible for:

This controller card is either the active controller for the system (the ACTIVE LED is on) or has failed (the FAIL LED is on).

CF

On

Green

  • The slot is empty, and it is safe to insert a CF card.

  • The file system on the installed CF card is not mounted, and it is safe to remove the CF card.

Blinking

Green

A CF card is installed in the slot, and the SmartEdge OS is mounting or unmounting the file system.

Off

None

A CF card is installed, the file system is mounted, and the SmartEdge OS might be transferring data to or from the CF card.

(1)  A failure can be total, partial, or forced. Failure on any part of the card, including failure of any of its ports, results in the FAIL LED being on.

(2)  The synchronization process is not affected by line card installation and removal; the active controller, and hence the system, continues to be responsive to traffic forwarding and continues to detect and notify the administrator of any faults that occur while the standby controller is being synchronized.


When you first power on the system, the active controller card is in slot 7. Thereafter, the slot changes whenever a switchover occurs. Check the status of the ACTIVE LED or use the show chassis command (in any mode) to determine the slot number.


 Caution! 
Risk of data loss. Do not remove an external storage device from its slot while the CF ACTIVE LED is blinking; you can lose data that is being transferred to the device if you enter the unmount /md command (in exec mode) before the data transfer operation is complete. To reduce the risk, you must wait until the CF ACTIVE LED is off; then enter the unmount /md command to prepare the device for removal.

 Caution! 
Risk of equipment failure. Removing the external storage device from its slot without first entering the unmount /md command (in exec mode) can permanently damage the device and cause the kernel to crash. To reduce the risk, always enter the unmount /md command before removing an external storage device.

6.1.2   Supporting Information

The following sections provide information about functional components of the XCRP4 Controller card.

6.1.2.1   Processors

The XCRP4 Controller card has four processors: one processor runs the low-level software and the other three processors run the BRAS and routing software.

Support for more than one processor to run the BRAS and routing software depends on the release of the SmartEdge OS.

6.1.2.2   Main Memory

Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM) is used by the SmartEdge OS shared databases that are accessed by the line cards. In a chassis with two controller cards, both cards must have the same memory configuration.

6.1.2.3   NVRAM with Battery

Each of the XCRP4 Controller cards include 512 KB of non-volatile RAM (NVRAM), which stores the current state of the system; because NVRAM is not affected by power failures or system shutdown, the system can restore operations after such events. The NVRAM battery on the XCRP4 Controller card is rechargeable; it is recharged from the power supplied to the SmartEdge router during normal operations. The battery typically lasts more than two years when fully charged and without benefit of being recharged by being powered on. Support for NVRAM depends on the release of the SmartEdge OS.

6.1.2.4   System Clock

The internal clock on an XCRP4 Controller card is a SONET minimum clock (SMC) at ±20.0 ppm in free-run and normal modes only. The system clock performs timing functions for system hardware, regardless of the source of its timing data. Using the SmartEdge OS, you can specify external equipment (external timing mode), the received clock of a line card (line timing mode), or the internal clock on the controller card (internal mode) as the source for the system clock. The real-time clock (RTC) on the XCRP4 Controller card is initialized before the system is shipped. It is not affected by power failures, system shutdown, or reload. The RTC uses the NVRAM battery. By default, the source of the transmit clock for the ports on a line card is its onboard clock. Depending on the type of line card, the transmit clock for a port on a line card can use instead the receive clock derived from an incoming signal to the port or system clock. Because a port does not interface to the source of the system clock directly, line card synchronization is independent of the type of external timing equipment and the version of the controller card installed in the chassis. The time-of-day clock (TDC) for a SmartEdge router is implemented in software. When a system with an XCRP4 Controller card is powered on, the RTC sets the TDC; otherwise, the TDC is undefined until it is configured and set using the SmartEdge OS. The TDC can be maintained by synchronization with a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server. Periodically, the SmartEdge OS updates the RTC based on the current value of the TDC.

6.1.2.5   External Timing Connection

Figure 40   External Timing Cables Connections

An external timing cable provides a connection from an external synchronization source, such as a building integrated timing supply (BITS) or synchronization supply unit (SSU), to the SmartEdge router. Each cable consists of two individually shielded, twisted wire pairs: one pair for the synchronization input and another pair for the synchronization output.

Note:  
For the XCRP4 Controller card, the type of interface is software selectable. The SmartEdge OS does not support transmission of data to another SmartEdge router or any other external equipment.

All controller cards support a BITS (DS-1) or SSU (E1) interface as a source for the system clock. For the XCRP4 Controller cards, the type of interface is software selectable. The SmartEdge OS does not support transmission of data to external equipment. The external timing interfaces allow operation of the system clock to be independent of the type of external equipment and the framing of the external line.

6.1.2.6   Internal Storage for SmartEdge OS files

A controller card has one or two CF cards (Type I), which store SmartEdge OS images and files.SmartEdge OS storage is organized into three partitions: p0, p1, and /flash. The p0 and p1 partitions each store a system image and its files; the memory on a controller card can be loaded from either partition. The third partition, /flash, stores SmartEdge OS configuration files and other system- and user-created data files. The capacity of the CF cards can vary; the CF cards installed in the active and standby controller cards need not have the same capacity.

6.1.2.7   Optional CF Card


 Caution! 
Risk of data loss. You can corrupt the system if you attempt to install a CF card not obtained from Ericsson because these items have not been tested with the SmartEdge router. To reduce the risk, use only the CF cards provided by Ericsson.

A controller card has an external slot on the front panel in which you can install an optional Type I or Type II CF card. The XCRP4 Controller card supports Type I CF cards only. When installed (the system is shipped with the slot empty), the CF card captures crash dumps and provides an alternate source for loading SmartEdge OS software, if it is not possible to download it over the network. If a CF card is installed in the active controller card, the standby controller card, if installed, must also have a CF card installed.

6.1.2.8   Ports for System Management Access

The XCRP4 Controller card has a single Craft port, labeled CRAFT. Each port has a DB-9 connector and provides an RS-232 connection to a local console terminal, a terminal server, or a modem. The Craft port provides access to the SmartEdge OS CLI for configuring and monitoring tasks; it is enabled on both the active and standby controller cards. All controller cards have a single Ethernet port with an RJ-45 connector that runs at 100 Mbps and provides a connection to an Ethernet device such as a switch or hub. This port provides access to the SmartEdge OS CLI from either a local or remote management workstation for configuring and monitoring tasks. Using this port, the system can also communicate with a remote workstation that is running the NetOp EMS software. Support for 1-Gbps speed of the port on the XCRP4 Controller card depends on the release of the SmartEdge OS. The Ethernet management port on the standby controller card is disabled unless the card becomes the active controller card.

6.1.2.9   Monitoring Temperature and Voltage

Temperature is monitored at both air inlet and air outlet locations on a controller card; an over-temperature interrupt signals the SmartEdge OS when the temperature rises above safe operating conditions. Voltages are also monitored and reported to the SmartEdge OS. Administrators can display both temperature and voltage data using commands in the SmartEdge OS CLI.

6.1.2.10   Fully Redundant Configuration

When two controller cards are installed in the SmartEdge 800 chassis, one functions as the active controller and the other card functions as the standby controller, providing full redundancy for high-reliability networking requirements. If a controller card fails, the redundant card automatically becomes the active controller, thereby avoiding any unnecessary service disruption in the network. If you upgrade the active controller card with a new software release, the active controller upgrades the standby controller. Redundancy extends to the console connections on the controller cards: the console ports can each be connected to a terminal server, and the Ethernet management ports can be connected to the same Ethernet hub with individual cables. The software automatically switches to the external timing secondary source should the primary source fail. If both sources fail, the active controller card uses an internal timing source.

6.2   8-Port ATM OC-3c/STM-1c Card

The 8-port ATM OC-3c/STM-1c card is designed as a subscriber-facing module and a network uplink module.

This PPA2-based, third-generation ATM OC-3c/STM-1c card has an increased minimum memory capacity of 1 GB. It also has increased circuit density of 24K with eight CoS queues, or 32K with two or four CoS queues. The 2-port card provides improved performance and supports more ATM VPs and PVCs than the 4-port card.

For information about ATM VPs and PVC support, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

This card uses the vc-fair and hsvc-fair SAR images. The vc-fair SAR image provides functionality consistent with PPA1-based ATM cards, but at a higher scale and without VC sparseness issues. The hsvc-fair image supports hierarchical and nonhierarchical shaping, port rate limiting, and VC fairness under congestion. Both vc-fair and hsvc-fair SAR images support statistics.

The SAR devices support two, four, or eight distinct CoS queues for each ATM PVC, allowing a mix of priority- and class-based queuing for each ATM PVC.

When configuring the EPD threshold in hsvc-fair mode, the value used should not exceed 500.

Note:  
The number configured for the threshold has an acceptable range of 2 to 10000; however, in the case of hsvc-fair mode, it should not be configured greater than 500. If it is configured above 500, poor performance can result.

This card occupies a single slot in the chassis and requires a separate SFP transceiver for each port.

The following SFP optical transceivers are supported on any of the ports:

Note:  
Use part number RDH90159/1 (SFP-ATM-OC3-SR-IR) when ordering the SFP transceivers with OC-3 SR-0 or OC-3 IR-1 functionality.

This second-generation ATM OC-3c/STM1-1c card has an increased memory for each port and offers higher performance and support for more ATM virtual paths (VPs) and PVCs than an earlier version of the card.

The card uses two SAR devices, which perform the reassembly function on the incoming ATM cell stream from the physical device and the segmentation function to create the corresponding outgoing ATM cell stream. The SAR devices support two, four, or eight distinct CoS queues for each ATM PVC, allowing a mix of priority- and class-based queuing for each PVC.

For information about ATM VPs and PVC support, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

The hardware provides HEC framing for each port; the transmit clock can be derived either from the active controller card or from the onboard local oscillator.

This card occupies a single slot in the chassis and has an SFF transceiver soldered in each port.

6.4   1-Port ATM OC-12c/STM-4c Card

The 1-port ATM OC-12c/STM-4c Intermediate Reach (IR) card supports one Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) or Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) single-mode fiber (SMF) port, which operates at 622 Mbps, and can be used either as an optical line or optical trunk interface.

This first-generation ATM OC-12 card uses two segmentation and reassembly (SAR) devices. The ingress SAR performs the reassembly function on the incoming Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) cell stream from the physical device. The egress SAR performs the segmentation function to create the corresponding outgoing ATM cell stream.

The hardware provides header error control (HEC) framing for the port. The transmit clock can be derived either from the active controller card or from the onboard local oscillator.

This card supports up to 8,000 ATM permanent virtual circuits (PVCs).

The SAR devices also support enhanced queuing and shaping functions for more granular control over traffic management with two, four, or eight distinct class of service (CoS) queues for each ATM PVC and allow a mix of priority- and class-based queuing for each PVC. These additional capabilities allow the card to support subscriber circuits.

For information about ATM PVC and traffic management support, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

This card occupies a single slot in the chassis and has an SFF transceiver soldered in the port.

6.6   2-Port ATM OC-12c/STM-4c Card

The 2-port ATM OC-12c/STM-4c card is designed as a subscriber-facing module and a network uplink module.

This PPA2-based, third-generation ATM OC-12c/STM-4c card has an increased minimum memory capacity of 1 GB. It also has increased circuit density of 24K with eight CoS queues, or 32K with two or four CoS queues. The 2-port card provides improved performance and supports more ATM VPs and PVCs than the 1-port card.

For information about ATM VPs and PVC support, see related documentation at https://ebusiness.ericsson.net.

This card uses the vc-fair and hsvc-fair SAR images. The vc-fair SAR image provides functionality consistent with PPA1-based ATM cards, but at a higher scale and without VC sparseness issues. The hsvc-fair image supports hierarchical and nonhierarchical shaping, port rate limiting, and VC fairness under congestion. Both vc-fair and hsvc-fair SAR images support statistics.

The SAR devices support two, four, or eight distinct CoS queues for each ATM PVC, allowing a mix of priority- and class-based queuing for each PVC.

When configuring the EPD threshold in hsvc-fair mode, the value used should not exceed 500.

Note:  
The number configured for the threshold has an acceptable range of 2 to 10000; however, in the case of hsvc-fair mode, it should not be configured greater than 500. If it is configured above 500, poor performance can result.

This card occupies a single slot in the chassis and requires a separate SFP transceiver for each port.

The following SFP transceivers are supported on the card ports:

6.7   12-Port ATM DS-3 Card

The 12-port ATM DS-3 card supports 12 Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) ports, each of which operates at 44.736 Mbps. Each port has two BNC connectors, located on the back of the SmartEdge chassis, for incoming and outgoing traffic. Incoming packet streams on the ATM DS-3 ports are terminated, and the traffic is selectively routed or switched to its destination.

The 12-port ATM DS-3 card uses a SAR device to perform segmentation and reassembly functions. At ingress, the SAR device performs the reassembly function on the incoming ATM cell stream from the physical device; at egress, the SAR device performs the segmentation function to create the corresponding outgoing ATM cell stream. The SAR device supports two, four, or eight distinct CoS queues for each ATM PVC, allowing a mix of priority- and class-based queuing for each ATM PVC. The hardware provides either Direct Mapped (DM) or Physical Layer Convergence Protocol (PLCP) ATM framing. The transmit clock can be derived from the receive clock, local oscillator, or active controller card.

This card is the same size as all other SmartEdge line cards and occupies a single slot in the chassis.

Hardware features, most of which are software configurable, include:

6.21   20-Port Gigabit Ethernet 1020 Card

The 20-port Gigabit Ethernet 1020 (GE1020) card is designed for traffic management. This PPA2-based card has an increased minimum memory capacity of 1 GB and can process data internally to match the speed of the ports.

This card is bigger than all other SmartEdge line cards and occupies two adjacent slots in the chassis.

The following SFP optical transceivers are supported on the card ports:


 Caution! 
Risk of data loss. You can corrupt the system if you attempt to install transceivers (GBICs, SFPs, or XFPs) not purchased from Ericsson; these transceivers have not been tested with the SmartEdge router. To reduce the risk, install only approved transceivers.
