Campus-REXRS Interface Card User Manual

ABOUT THEPRODUCT1

The Campus® Remote Ethernet eXpress(Campus-REX)RS Interface Card installs into a:

Campus-Star® chassis, along with aCampus-RS (Rate Selectable) Line Unit

Standalone Campus-RSDesktop Unit

This comprises half of a High-bit-rateDigital Subscriber Line (HDSL) transmission system. When connected to anotherCampus-RS,Campus-T1® ,Campus-768® ,orCampus-E1® Desktop Unit or Line Unit, theCampus-RSsystem can transport digitized voice, data, and video signals over existing copper wire at a number of different HDSL rates.

This version of the Campus-REXmust be installed in aCampus-RSorCampus-HRSDesktop Unit or with aCampus-RSorCampus-HRSLine Unit. It cannot be installed in an older Campus Desktop Unit or with an older Campus Line Unit.

The Campus HDSL system provides a connection between geographically distributed Ethernet Local Area Networks (LANs) in a campus environment. To provide the connection, the Campus-REXperforms transparent 802.3 MAC bridging or static IP routing over an HDSL line. You can use existingtelephone-gradecopper wiring as the HDSL transmission medium.

About the Product

PRODUCTFEATURES

The Campus-REXprovides complete main bridging tasks such as dynamic address learning, forwarding, filtering, and hashing/buffer management. Other features include:

embedded Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent

IEEE 802.1d transparent MAC level bridging with Spanning Tree protocol support

static IP Routing

BOOTP for configuration of IP parameters

HDLC (High-levelData Link Control) or PPP(Point-to-PointProtocol) frame encapsulation options

10BASE-Tport for connection to an 802.3 LAN

console port for maintenance and management

COMPATIBILITY WITHEARLIERCAMPUS

PRODUCTS

When mated with a Campus-RSDesktop Unit orCampus-RSLine Unit, theCampus-REXRS Interface Card is compatible, over the HDSL link, with earlier versions of Campus products, such as theCampus-T1,Campus-E1,andCampus-768,as shown in the following illustration.Campus-RSunits are not currently compatible withCampus-384products.

Campus-REXRS Interface Card User Manual

About the Product

All earlier versions of Campus products are manufactured to operate at a single HDSL transmission rate, while the Campus-RStransmission rate isuser-selectable.To support compatibility with earlier Campus Products, the following configuration options must be set on theCampus-REX:

Set the HDSL Operating Mode to Standard Mode.

Set the Standard Mode HDSL Rate to T1, E1, or 768, to match the rate of the earlier product.

If a Campus-RSunit is connected over an HDSL link to an earlier Campus product, and if either unit has the HDSL Transceiver (XCVR) Mode set to AUTO, the HDSL link may not operate properly.

When operating the Campus-RSproduct with an earlier version of the Campus products, to avoid any problems with link startup or operation, it is recommended that the Transceiver Mode be set as follows:

Campus-RS=MASTER

Campus E1/T1/768 = SLAVE

If one or both units are already set to AUTO and the HDSL link is active, disconnect the HDSL link, change the settings as recommended, and reconnect the link. This will assure the link integrity on any subsequent startups.

This situation does not apply to a circuit with two Campus-RSunits. You may leave the units set to their default setting of AUTO, and they will operate properly.

For information on setting these options, see “Set the HDSL Operating Mode” on page 3-7.

When connecting to another Campus-RSDesktop Unit or Line Unit, Standard Mode is still supported, providing access to HDSL transmission rates of T1, E1 and 768 kbps. In addition, theCampus-RSsystem can be configured to support an extended set of HDSL transmission rates, over either one or two HDSL loops.

To support these additional transmission rates, set the following options on the Campus-REX:

Set the HDSL Operating Mode to Extended Mode or AutoSync Mode.

Set the Extended Mode Loop Configuration to 1 Loop or 2 Loops, depending on the physical layout of your HDSL network.

Set the Extended Mode HDSL Rate to the desired setting.

1-4

Campus-REXRS Interface Card User Manual

About the Product

The range of rates available for the HDSL Rate depends on the setting of the Extended Mode Loop Configuration:

1 Loop HDSL Rate settings are between 128 kbps and 1.152 Mbps, in 64 kbps increments

2 Loop HDSL Rate settings are between 256 kbps and 2.304 Mbps, in 128 kbps increments

Not all of these modes and rates are available if the remote Campus-RSsystem does not support them. Refer to the remote interface card User Manual to see the HDSL modes and rates supported by the card.

For information on setting these options, see “Set the HDSL Operating Mode” on page 3-7.

ESTABLISHING ANHDSL LINK

Before an HDSL link can be established in Standard or Extended Mode, the HDSL parameters for both the local and remote units must be set identically.

Using AutoSync Mode allows one unit to determine the HDSL parameters. In AutoSync Mode, one unit is configured as a master and the other as a slave. Upon startup, the HDSL parameters of the master unit are used to establish the HDSL link. No further configuration of the slave unit is required.

If the remote unit is not configured as an AutoSync slave, an AutoSync connection will not be established and the system generates an AutoSync minor alarm. After several failed attempts, the master enters Fallback Mode and attempts to establish a normal HDSL link with the same HDSL parameters. If this is unsuccessful, for example, if the slave unit is configured to a different HDSL Rate, the master unit reverts to attempting to establish an AutoSync connection.
