Web LCT User Guide 2 Product Description

The Web LCT provides the users with single-layer management network solutions to the
transmission networks of up to 32 NEs. The Web LCT accesses a local NE through a LAN or a
serial port, and accesses a remote NE through data communications channel (DCC). The Web
LCT can be integrated with the U2000.

Data Management
The Web LCT has no NM database, All operations are directly applies to NEs. Hence, the Web
LCT does not support the ability to preconfigure an NE, upload and download the NE
configuration data, and acknowledge and synchronize alarms.

2.1.2 Function Comparison Between Web LCT and U2000 LCT


The Web LCT and the U2000 LCT are EMS. They provide the ability to configure and maintain
Huawei OptiX series products, and the ability to manage alarms, configuration, performance
data, security and communication.

The main difference between the Web LCT and the U2000 LCT is as follows:

Manageable Equipment
The Web LCT manages Huawei NG WDM series, OptiX OSN 9560, RTN series, WDM (NA)
series and submarine line monitor products. The U2000 LCT manages SDH series, PTN series,
MSTP series, OSN series, Metro WDM series, LH WDM series and submarine line monitor
products.

GUI Style
The Web LCT uses the browser/server architecture that the user configures and maintains NEs
by using a browser. The Web LCT implements a web-based graphic user interface. The U2000
LCT implements a Java-based graphic user interface.

Data Management
The Web LCT has no NM database, All operations are directly applies to NEs. Hence, the Web
LCT does not support the ability to preconfigure an NE, upload and download the NE
configuration data, and acknowledge and synchronize alarms.

2.1.3 Manageable Equipment


The U2000 Web LCT can uniformly manage OptiX series optical transmission equipment from
Huawei, such as OSN 9560, NG WDM, NG WDM (NA), RTN and submarine equipment.

Synchronization Protocol Configuration


In the application scenario of dual-homing, the status of the peer equipment needs to be obtained
for the MC LAG. Meanwhile, the actions on both sides need to be negotiated based on different
fault cases. With the method of adding information of the peer end, a channel is established for
control status synchronization with the peer end. In this manner, the control packets can be
transmitted and received through the channel and link fault detection can be performed.

LAG/MC LAG Configuration


A LAG aggregates multiple Ethernet physical links to form a logical link of faster rate for
transmitting data. This function improves the link availability and increases link capacity.

The MC LAG supports the ability to share load between aggregation group equipment.

LMSP Configuration
Linear MSP protection contains 1+1 linear MSP and 1:N linear MSP. They use the protection
channel to protect services that are transmitted on the working channel. When the working
channel fails, services are switched to the protection channel. The linear MSP applies to the POS
interface and structured STM interface.

The U2000 Web LCT supports the following functions of LMSP configuration:

l Creates a linear MSP.


l Checks the linear MSP switching status.
l Performs linear MSP switching.

MSTP Configuration
The multiple spanning tree protocol (MSTP) can be used to clear loops on a network. Using an
algorithm, the MSTP blocks redundant trails so that the loop network can be trimmed as a non-
loop tree network. In this case, broadcast storms caused by the proliferation and endless cycling
of packets on the loop network do not occur. Different from the STP and RSTP that use only
one spanning tree to correspond to all VLANs, the MSTP introduces the mapping between
VLANs and multiple spanning trees, and therefore can forward data according to VLAN packets
and achieve load balance of VLAN data.

You can perform the following operations on the U2000 Web LCT:

l Configure parameters of port groups and network bridges.


l Configure CIST and MSTI parameters.
l Query CIST status and MSTI status.

IGMP Snooping Configuration


The Internet group management protocol snooping (IGMP snooping) is a scheme of multicast
constraints on Layer 2 equipment, and is used to manage and control multicast groups.

The U2000 Web LCT supports the configuration of IGMP snooping for E-LAN services, and
provides the following operations:
l Configure IGMP Snooping protocol parameters.
l Configure quick leaving ports.
l Manage routes.
l Configure route member ports.
l Query statistics of IGMP protocol packets.

LPT Configuration
LPT is used to return the remote-end link status to the near end. The near-end equipment performs
operations depending on the remote-end link status. When the intermediate transmission network
of the services becomes faulty, the LPT informs the access equipment at both ends of the
transmission network to enable the backup network. This ensures the normal transmission of
the important data.

The Hybrid MSTP NEs support configuring point-to-point LPT and point-to-multipoint LPT.

QoS Configuration
QoS indicates the performance of the data flow that travels through a network. The QoS is used
to ensure end-to-end service quality. The QoS cannot increase the bandwidth, but it can minimize
the delay and jitter in the network by appropriately allocating and monitoring network resources.
In this way, the quality of important services is ensured.

The DiffServ (DS) domain consists of a group of network nodes that enable the DiffServ
function, that is, DS nodes. In a DS domain, all DS nodes use the same service provision policy
to realize the same per-hop behavior (PHB). The DS nodes are classified into edge DS nodes
and internal DS nodes. The edge DS nodes usually perform complex flow classification on the
traffic that enters the DS domain. Traffic of different types is marked with different PHB service
types. For internal DS nodes, you need to perform only simple flow classification based on PHB
service type.

The U2000 Web LCT supports the following QoS functions:

l Configures QoS profiles.


l Configures DiffServ domains.
l Configures ATM CoS mapping.
l Configures simple flow classification and complex flow classification.
l Configures CAR and Shaping.
l Configures the WFQ scheduling policy.
l Configures the port WRED policy.
l Configures the service WRED policy.
l Configures WRR scheduling policy.
l To simplify the operation and share some common QoS configuration parameters, the
U2000 Web LCT supports creating QoS function point policies as follows: port policy,
ATM policy, V-UNI ingress policy, V-UNI egress policy, PW policy and QinQ policy. By
using these function point policies, you can bind the CAR configuration attribute, shaping
configuration attribute, flow classification configuration attributes, WFQ Schedule policy,
WRED policy and WRR scheduling policy.
l Configure CoS queue mapping.
l Supports the application of the QoS policy to multiple NEs by configuring QoS profile.

MPLS Tunnel Configuration


MPLS is a type of transmission technology used to transparently transmit data packets between
users. The MPLS tunnel is the tunnel defined in the MPLS protocol. Independent from the
service, the MPLS tunnel realizes end-to-end transmission and carries the PWs related to the
service.

The U2000 Web LCT supports configuring the following functions of the MPLS tunnel on a
per-NE basis:

l Configures general attributes of the MPLS.


l Configures static unicast MPLS tunnels.
l Creates forward and backward MPLS tunnels at the same time.
l Creates static and bidirectional MPLS tunnels.

MS-PW Configuration
By creating multi-segment pseudo wires (MS-PWs) to transmit services, you can transmit
services over different networks while saving tunnel resources.

PW APS Configuration
As a network protection mechanism, PW automatic protection switching (APS) is intended to
protect the services on the working PW with a protection PW. That is, when the working PW is
faulty, the services on the working PW are switched to the protection PW. In this manner, the
services on the working PW are protected.

You can perform the following PW APS operations on a per-NE basis:


l Create a protection group.
l Bind the master and slave protection pairs.

CES Configuration
CES configuration is mainly used for transparent transmission of TDM circuit switching data
on the PSN network.

You can perform the following operations on the U2000 Web LCT:

l Create PWs for a CES service.


l Create UNI-UNI and UNI-NNI CES services.
l Create CES services with the following two modes:
– Structure-aware TDM circuit emulation service over packet switched network
(CESoPSN)
– Structure-agnostic TDM over packet (SAToP)
l Configure QoS for CES services.
l Configure transparent transmission for CES service alarms.

can be transparently transmitted in a point-to-point manner.

See Figure 2-2. Company A has branches in City 1 and City 3. Company C has branches in City
1 and City 2. Branches of Company A or Company C that are in different cities have data
communication requirements. The Hybrid MSTP equipment can provide E-line services for
Company A and Company C, to meet their communication requirements. In addition, the service
data can be completely isolated.

E-AGGR Service Configuration


E-AGGR services are multipoint-to-point Ethernet services. The equipment uses several ports
to access services from the V-UNI side, and converges the services into one PW at the network
side for transmission. In this way, service data from multiple points can be converged into one
point.

See Figure 2-3 and Figure 2-4. One carrier wants to construct a 3G network. Services of each
Node B are converged and transported to the RNC. The data between each Node B and RNC is
regarded as one service. At the convergence point, the QoS parameters such as the overall
bandwidth are specified.

To quickly check whether the communication between the created NE and the gateway NE is
normal during deployment in the scenario where hybrid MSTP NEs use in-band DCN protocol
for communication.

Setting PCM Interfaces


The SDH equipment on a transport network integrates some pulse code modulation (PCM)
interfaces, including FXO and FXS ports and 2-wire/4-wire AF EM interfaces. The main service
scenarios are as follows:
l Z interface extension service: FXO and FXS ports work in pairs to implement transparent
telephone transmission. Common telephones can connect directly to a private branch
exchange (PBX) which extends to NEs with the FXO and FXS ports. Each telephone port
occupies a 64 kbit/s E1 channel.
l Hotline service: FXO and FXS ports work in pairs to implement E-Line telephone services.
It mainly completes the end-to-end voice communication between stations. Users can
communicate with each other by just picking up the phone, that is, no dialing is required.
l 2-wire/4-wire AF EM regeneration: The PBXs are connected to transport NEs through the
2-wire/4-wire + EM interfaces. The EM interfaces transmit signaling and the 2-wire/4-wire
ports transmit voice data. The transport NEs act as the regenerators of signaling and voice
data.
l End-to-end control signal transmission: EM ports are used independently to transmit
connection and disconnection signals through only one channel. In this manner, switch
signals are transmitted remotely to implement remote control.

network resources. In this way, the service quality is ensured.
The DiffServ (DS) domain consists of a group of network nodes with the DiffServ function.
Nodes of this type are also called DS nodes. In a DS domain, all DS nodes adopt the same service
provisioning policy to achieve the same per-hop behavior (PHB). DS nodes are classified into
edge DS nodes and internal DS nodes. Edge DS nodes usually perform complex flow
classification on the traffic that enters the DS domain. Traffic of different types is marked with

QoS Configuration
Quality of service (QoS) refers to the performance of the data flow transmission in a network.
The QoS is used to ensure end-to-end service quality. The QoS cannot enhance the bandwidth,
but it can minimize the delay and jitter in a network by properly allocating and monitoring
network resources. In this way, the service quality is ensured.

The DiffServ (DS) domain consists of a group of network nodes with the DiffServ function.
Nodes of this type are also called DS nodes. In a DS domain, all DS nodes adopt the same service
provisioning policy to achieve the same per-hop behavior (PHB). DS nodes are classified into
edge DS nodes and internal DS nodes. Edge DS nodes usually perform complex flow
classification on the traffic that enters the DS domain. Traffic of different types is marked with
different PHB service types. Internal DS nodes only need to perform simple flow classification
based on PHB service types.

The U2000 Web LCT supports the following QoS configurations:


l Configure Diffserv domains.
l Configure ATM CoS mapping.
l Configure simple flow classification and complex flow classification.

faulty, the services on the working PW are switched to the protection PW. In this manner, the
services on the working PW are protected.

As a network protection mechanism, PW fast protection switching (FPS) is intended to protect


the services on the working PW with a protection PW. That is , when the working PW, core
equipment or link between core equipment and RNC(Radio Network Controller) is faulty, the
node core equipment switches services to the protection PW. In this manner, services are
protected.

PWs with UDP Encapsulation


The U2000 Web LCT supports PWs with UDP encapsulations that are carried in IP tunnels.

E-LAN Service Configuration


The E-LAN is a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service. It connects to multiple V-UNI and
NNI access points. It realizes packet forwarding and interconnection by using the MAC address
self-learning scheme of layer 2.

Different VLANs are used to identify service data of different branches by using the E-LAN
service. In this way, data is shared within a branch and is isolated from other branches. The
Internet data of the HQ is also isolated from the internal service data by using the VLAN.

The U2000 Web LCT supports the following functions of configuring E-LAN services on a per-
NE basis:

l Create E-LAN services that are carried on port.


l Create E-LAN services that are carried on QinQ links.
l Create E-LAN services that are carried on PW.
l Configure V-UNI and NNI interfaces for an E-LAN service.
l Configure the split horizon group of an E-LAN service.
l Configure V-UNI groups.
l Configure MAC address learning parameters.
l Configure the unknown frame processing mode.
l Configure the static MAC address.
l Configure the disabled MAC address.
l Configure the self-learning MAC address.
l Support the automatic loopback test for Ethernet services.
l Allow users to enable Ethernet services manually.

E-AGGR Service Configuration


E-AGGR services are a multipoint-to-point Ethernet service. The equipment uses several ports
to access services from the V-UNI side and then converges the services into one PW at the
network side for transmission. Service data from multiple points can be converged into one point.

The U2000 Web LCT supports the following configurations for E-AGGR services on a per-NE
basis:
l Configure VLAN forwarding table items of an E-AGGR service.

Issue 02 (2014-12-10) Huawei Proprietary and Confidential 74


Copyright © Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
iManager U2000 LCT
Web LCT User Guide 2 Product Description

l Configure QoS for the PWs of an E-AGGR service.


l Configure V-UNI groups.

IGMP Snooping Configuration


The Internet group management protocol snooping (IGMP snooping) is a scheme of multicast
constraints on Layer 2 equipment, and is used to manage and control multicast groups.

The U2000 Web LCT supports the configuration of IGMP snooping for E-LAN services, and
provides the following operations:
l Configure IGMP Snooping protocol parameters.
l Configure quick leaving ports.
l Manage routes.
l Configure route member ports.
l Query statistics of IGMP protocol packets.

Setting SNMP NMS Parameters


When the OSS obtains alarm and performance data from NE over SNMP, you need to configure
IP address and permission control parameters of OSS on the U2000 Web LCT.

Setting Control Plane DCN Packet Priority and Bandwidth


In a DCN that packets travels on the control plane, DCN and service packets share the same
forward channels. Therefore, you need to set the control plane DCN packet priority and
bandwidth.

Configuring Layer 2 DCN


In the Layer 2 data communication network (DCN) solution, the U2000 Web LCT implements
NE management through Layer 2 forwarding. DCN data is encapsulated into Ethernet frames
and forwarded at Layer 2 between NEs.

Configuring PLA
Physical link aggregation (PLA) allows all Ethernet transmission paths in several Integrated IP
radio links connected to the same equipment to be aggregated as a PLA. For MAC users, a PLA
works as a single link.

MPLS-TP OAM Configuration


Complying with MPLS-TP standards, MPLS-TP OAM provides the following OAM functions
for MPLS-TP networks:

l Checking, discovering, and locating a defect inside the network at the MPLS layer.
l Reporting and handling the defect.
l Triggering protection switching when a fault occurs.

This feature provides the following functions for tunnels and PWs:

Web LCT User Guide 4 Creating NEs

4 Creating NEs

About This Chapter

Each actual OptiX series equipment is represented as an NE on the Web LCT. Before the Web
LCT manages the actual equipment, you need to create the corresponding NEs on the Web LCT.
There are two ways of creating NEs: creating an NE (searching for the NEs) and creating an NE
manually. When you need to create a large number of NEs, for example, during deployment, it
is recommended to search for NEs . When you need to create just a few NEs, it is recommended
to create the NEs manually. In special situations, for example, when the communication between
the Web LCT and the NE is interrupted, you can only choose the mode of create the NEs
manually.

Context
The Web LCT allows a maximum of 32 online NEs to be added.

4.1 Creating an NE (Searching for the NE)


When the Web LCT communicates with the GNE properly, you can create NEs in batches by
searching for all NEs that communicate with the GNE, through the IP address of the GNE or
the network segment the IP address is associated to. This method is quicker and more accurate
than manual creation.

4.2 Creating an NE Manually


Creating NEs manually is not as quick and precise as the searching creation. However, creating
NEs manually is applicable no matter what way of communication an NE adopts. The NEs that
use serial ports to communicate do not support the NE search function and you must create them
one by one.

4.3 Creating a USB-Connected NE


After NEs are connected to the U2000 Web LCT through USB ports, users can access the NEs
directly through USB ports without searching for the NE IP addresses. The U2000 Web LCT
can manage and configure NEs through USB ports.

4.4 Creating an NE Connected by Wi-Fi


The U2000 Web LCT is able to manage RTN NEs using Wi-Fi. After being connected to the

4.1 Creating an NE (Searching for the NE)


When the Web LCT communicates with the GNE properly, you can create NEs in batches by
searching for all NEs that communicate with the GNE, through the IP address of the GNE or
the network segment the IP address is associated to. This method is quicker and more accurate
than manual creation.

Prerequisites
l The network communication between the U2000 Web LCT and the NE must be normal.
l The U2000 Web LCT needs to carry VLAN IDs when communicating with OptiX RTN
310 NEs. Therefore, the computer where the U2000 Web LCT is installed must be
configured before OptiX RTN 310 NEs are created. If the NIC supports VLAN IDs in the
transmitted packets, enable the desired network service. If the NIC does not support VLAN
IDs in the transmitted packets, use the driver provided by the U2000 Web LCT for
configuration. For details, see 4.5 Configuring the U2000 Web LCT to Carry VLAN
IDs in the Transmitted Packets.

Context
You can create an NE by searching for the NE and the adding NE on the U2000 Web LCT. In
addition, you can create an NE by adding the NE manually. Generally, the NE ID is not known
during the initial NE configuration. Hence, the searching method is used to create an NE in most
cases.

You can search for the NE by quick search and advanced search.

l Quick search: The NEs that have been searched out are added to the NE list and logged in
to automatically You can switch to the NE Explorer directly from the Search NE dialog
box, which facilitates NE management.
l Advanced search: The NEs that have been searched out are added and logged in to manually.
NOTE

Before searching for NEs, add the corresponding gateway NEs to the U2000 Web LCT. Otherwise, logging
in to the searched NEs may fail.

Procedure
l Quick search:
1. In the NE List, click NE Search > NE Search. The Search NE dialog box is
displayed.

2. Click NMS Port or User Port to start an automatic search.

l If you click NMS Port, you will search out the NEs in the same network segment as the
local IP address will be searched out.
l If you click User Port, NEs whose service ports are directly connected to the U2000 Web
LCT will be searched out. It is generally used to search for OptiX RTN 310 NEs.
3. The IP addresses of the searched out NEs are displayed in the NE IP Address drop-
down list. In the NE IP Address drop-down list, select the desired IP address for NE
creation and click Apply. The NE Explorer is displayed. The NE list shows that the
NE has been added and logged in to automatically.
l Advanced search:
1. Click NE Search > Advanced Search in the NE List. The Search NE dialog box is
displayed.
2. Click Manage Domain. The Manage Domain Search dialog box is displayed.
3. Click Add, and the New Domain dialog box is displayed.

l The NE user is invalid or the NE user is already logged in. Change to use a valid NE user.

4.2 Creating an NE Manually


Creating NEs manually is not as quick and precise as the searching creation. However, creating
NEs manually is applicable no matter what way of communication an NE adopts. The NEs that
use serial ports to communicate do not support the NE search function and you must create them
one by one.

Prerequisites
l The communication between the Web LCT and the NEs must be normal.
l The NE ID must be known.
l The U2000 Web LCT needs to carry VLAN IDs when communicating with OptiX RTN
310 NEs. Therefore, the computer where the U2000 Web LCT is installed must be
configured before OptiX RTN 310 NEs are created. If the NIC supports VLAN IDs in the
transmitted packets, enable the desired network service. If the NIC does not support VLAN
IDs in the transmitted packets, use the driver provided by the U2000 Web LCT for
configuration. For details, see 4.5 Configuring the U2000 Web LCT to Carry VLAN
IDs in the Transmitted Packets.

Context
l You can create an NE by adding the NE manually. In addition, you can create an NE by
searching for the NE. If the NE ID is not known during the initial NE configuration, you
can create the NE by searching for the NE and adding the NE.
l SSL Gateway is recommended when creating an NE because of its higher security than
other gateway types.

Web LCT User Guide A Service Ports Description

A.1 Background
This section describes the service ports used by management systems.

To ensure the network security, you can take measures on the customer's network. The following
are the two cases that affect the network security:

l Security filtering settings such as routers or firewalls are configured in the network
environment where the NMS runs. When carrying out the project, avoid the service ports
used by the NMS being filtered by those security filtering settings.
l Some service ports providing system services are closed to prevent network or virus attacks.
Note that the service ports used by the NMS should not be closed, and otherwise the NMS
will not run properly.

A.2 Notes and Precautions


In the practical communication process, the source (the server) and the sink (the client) use
relevant ports. Usually you only need to specify the source port, and the sink port is dynamically
created.

Note the following during the project implementation:

l The service ports used by the NMS should not be closed.


l If there are routers or firewalls between the source and the sink, then check all ports used
by the source and the sink to make sure that they can be opened, and the source can
communicate with the sink.

Alarm hold-off time Alarm delay includes start delay and end
delay. An alarm is not regarded as being
generated until the NE has been detecting it
for a period of time, and this period of time is
the alarm start hold-off time. An alarm is not
regarded as being cleared until the NE has
been detecting the ending of it for a period of
time, and this period of time is the alarm end
hold-off time. Setting the hold-off time can
avoid the generation of unnecessary alarms
due to misreport or jitter.

Alarm severity According to ITU-T recommendations, the


alarm is classified into four severities:
Critical, Major, Minor, Warning.

Alarm A visible or an audible indication to notify the


person concerned that a failure or an
emergency has occurred. See also Event.

Attribute Property of an object.

Binding In virtual concatenated payload


configuration, designating one binding
number to identify the VC4s of the same
virtual concatenated payload is called "bind".
If a fault occurs to one of the bound services,
all bound services will switch as a whole.

Board View The Board View displays the ports and the
paths in different colors depending on their
current status, with legend and description
illustrated aside.

Bound path The VC Trunk refers to the 2 M paths which


are bound together to transmit Ethernet data.
The VC Trunk is an entity between the
Ethernet port and the 2 M path.

Configuration data The data that configures the NE hardware for


coordination between this NE and other NEs
in the entire network and operation of
specified services. Configuration data is the
instruction file of NEs, and it is the key for
efficient network running. The typical
configuration data includes board
configuration, clock configuration and
protection relationship.

Configure To set the basic parameters of an operation


object.

Connection point A reference point where the output of a trail


termination source or a connection is bound
to the input of another connection, or where
the output of a connection is bound to the
input of a trail termination sink or another
connection. The connection point is
characterized by the information which
passes across it. A bidirectional connection
point is formed by the association of a
contradirectional pair.

Connection A "transport entity" which consists of an


associated pair of "unidirectional
connections" capable of simultaneously
transferring information in opposite
directions between their respective inputs and
outputs.

Cross-connect slot To perform GE ADM, an OTU board with


that function has to be in a cross-connect slot.
Several successive cross-connect slots form a
cross-connect unit group. You can only
configure cross-connections within a cross-
connect unit group.

Current alarms Alarms that do not clear, or has cleared but is


not acknowledged.

Current performance data The performance data stored in the current


register is called current performance data.
The current 15-minute or 24-hour register
(only one for each) is applied to collect the
performance data in the current monitoring
period. It changed within the monitor period.

DCC Within an STM-N signal there are two DCC


channels, one is the 192 kbit/s DCC-R
channel composed of bytes D1-D3, and the
other is the 576 kbit/s DCC-M channel
composed of bytes D4-D12. All NEs can
communicate with one another through the
DCC-R. The DCC-M is not the regenerator
section overhead and does not support
communications among regenerators, and it
is used to support communication channels of
more universal purpose. For example, it
supports TMN as a physical channel of ECC.

ECC Embedded Control Channel. An ECC


provides a logical operations channel
between SDH NEs, utilizing a data
communications channel (DCC) as its
physical layer.

Failure The fault cause persisted long enough to


consider the ability of an item to perform a
required function to be terminated. The item
may be considered as failed; a fault has now
been detected.

Fault A fault is the inability of a function to perform


a required action. This does not include an
inability due to preventive maintenance, lack
of external resources, or planned actions.

History alarms Alarms that have cleared and been


acknowledged.

History performance data The performance data stored in the history


register and the auto-report performance data
stored on the Web LCT are called history
performance data in a unified way.

IP address In the TCP/IP protocol, it is used to uniquely


identify the address of the communication
port, which consists of four bytes in decimal
digits, for example, 10.9.161.55.

Label A mark on a cable, a subrack, or a cabinet for


identification.

Layer A concept used to allow the transport network


functionality to be described hierarchically as
successive levels; each layer being solely
concerned with the generation and transfer of
its characteristic information.

LCT Local Craft Terminal. The LCT provides the


user with single-layer management network
solutions to the transmission network of up to
five NEs to realize integrated management of
multi-service transmission network. Usually
it uses the cross-over cable or serial port cable
to connect one NE, so as to configure and
maintain a single NE. See also Web LCT.

NE Explorer NE Explorer is the main operation interface


of the Web LCT. For easy navigation, the NE
Explorer window presents an expandable
directory tree (Function Tree) in the lower left
pane. The configuration, management and
maintenance of the equipment are accessed
here.

NE Panel NE Panel displays subracks, boards, and ports


in different colours depending on their status.
In the Web LCT, most equipment
configuration, monitoring, and maintenance
are performed in the NE Panel window.

NE Network Element. NE includes the hardware


unit and the software running on it. Usually,
one NE has at least an SCC (system control
and communication) board which responsible
for the management and monitoring of the
NE. The NE software runs on the SCC board.

NM Network Management. In the


telecommunication network management
architecture, the Web LCT is an element
management system that supports all
functions at the element management layer.
See also Web LCT.

Non-revertive In non-revertive switching, there is a working


and protection line, board and so on. Services
remain on the protection line or board if the
switch requests are terminated; that is, when
the fault that caused them to switch to the
protection line or board is cleared.

Online help An indexed collection of information on all


aspects of the Web LCT. They can be
accessed at any time from the Help menu or
by pressing the F1 key.

Pane A major separate area of a window or dialog


box, usually used for display rather than data
entry.

Path A trail in a path layer.

Performance register Performance register is the memory space for


performance event counts, including 15-min
current performance register, 24-hour current
performance register, 15-min history
performance register, 24-hour history
performance register, UAT register and CSES
register.

Performance threshold Performance events usually have upper and


lower thresholds. When the performance
event count value exceeds the upper
threshold, a performance threshold-crossing
event is generated; when the performance
event count value is below the upper threshold
for a period of time, the performance
threshold-crossing event is ended. In this
way, performance jitter caused by some
sudden events can be shielded.

Private line Both communication parties are connected


permanently.

Procedure A generic term for an action.

Process A generic term for a collection of actions.

Protection service A specific service that is part of a protection


group and is labelled protection.

Route The IP route selection is in table driving


mode. In each host and each router of the
Internet, there is a routing table that contains
information about how the service is
transmitted from the source to the sink,
providing a basis for route selection. Ethernet
static routing in ET1 refers to the mapping
relationship between the Ethernet port and the
bound path. Its routing type includes port
routing and VLAN routing. Port routing: It
means configuring a route between the
Ethernet port and the bound path port, which
is usually used for point-to-point networking
communication; VLAN routing: It means
configuring a route between the Ethernet port
and the bound path port based on the VLAN
service. It can be used flexibly in point-to-
point, point-to-multipoint or multipoint-to-
multipoint communication. The
implementation is to divide and converge the
data stream according to the VLAN flag of the
packet. As a VLAN flag can be added to the
Ethernet port, the equipment can be applied
more flexibly.

Settings Parameters of an operation that can be


selected by the user.

Severity See Alarm Severity.

SF Signal Fail. A signal indicating the associated


data has failed in the sense that a near-end
defect condition (not being the degraded
defect) is active.

Shortcut menu A menu that is displayed when right-clicking


an object' s name or icon. Also called a context
menu.

Subnet mask Also referred to as the network mask off code,


it is used to define network segments, so that
only the computers in the same network
segment can communicate with one another,
thus suppressing broadcast storm between
different network segments.

Subnet number Subnetwork numder is used to differentiate


the different network sections in the sub-
network conference. Actually it is the first
several digits (one or two) of the user phone
number. An orderwire phone number is
composed of the sub-network number and the
user number.

Subnet Sub-network is the logical entity in the


transmission network and comprises a group
of network management objects. A sub-
network can contain NEs and other sub-
networks. A sub-network planning can better
the organization of a network view.

Support The frame on the bottom of a cabinet, when


installing the cabinet on the antistatic floor.

TMN Telecommunications Management Network.


The entity which provides the means used to
transport and process information related to
management functions for the
telecommunications network.

Tributary loopback A fault can be located for each service path


by performing loopback to each path of the
tributary board. There are three kinds of
loopback modes: No loopback, Outloop and
Inloop.

UAT Unavailable Time. A UAT event is reported


when the monitored object generates 10
consecutive severely errored seconds (SES)
and the SESs begin to be included in the
unavailable time. The event will end when the
bit error ratio per second is better than 10-3
within 10 consecutive seconds.

VC4 loopback The fault of each VC4 path on the optical fiber
can be located by setting loopback for each
VC4 path of the line. There are three kinds of
loopback modes: No loopback, Outloop,
Inloop.

VLAN ID Namely, it is the virtual LAN identifier. One


Ethernet port can support 4K VLAN routes,
and one NE can support up to 8K VLAN
routes.

to describe the wavelength protection
structure. Its function is similar to that of the
protection sub-network in the SDH NE. The
wavelength path protection can only work
with the correct configuration of the
wavelength protection group.

WDM cross-connection Internal GE cross-connections for OTU


boards with GE ADM function, the source
and sink of which are optical ports at the

from a fault recovered - trail/connection can
be used again to transport the normal traffic
signal and/or to select the normal traffic signal
from.

WTR Wait to Restore. This command is issued


when working channels meet the restoral
threshold after an SD or SF condition. It is
used to maintain the state during the WTR
period unless it is pre-empted by a higher
priority bridge request.
