Overview

This chapter describes the one-portPA-E3andtwo-portPA-2E3E3 serial port adapters. This chapter contains the following sections:

Port Adapter Overview

The PA-E3is asingle-width,one-portortwo-portmodule that integrates data service unit (DSU) functionality into the Cisco router (see Figure1-1and Figure1-2).The module provides one or twohigh-speedserial E3 interfaces on:

Cisco 7100 series routers

Cisco 7200 series routers

Cisco uBR7200 series routers

Second-generationVersatile Interface Processors (VIP2) in all Cisco 7000 series and Cisco 7500 series routers

Catalyst RSM/VIP2 in the Catalyst 5000 family switches

Note Port adapters have a handle attached, but this handle is occasionally not shown in figures in this publication to allow a full view of detail on the port adapter’s faceplate.

The one-portPA-E3provides two network interfaces per VIP2 for Cisco 7000 series and

Cisco 7500 series routers and the Catalyst RSM/VIP2 for Catalyst 5000 family switches, and one high-speedinterface on the Cisco 7100 series, Cisco 7200 series, and Cisco uBR7200 series routers.

The two-portPA-2E3provides four network interfaces per VIP2 for Cisco 7000 series and

Cisco 7500 series routers and the Catalyst RSM/VIP2 for Catalyst 5000 family switches, and two high-speedinterfaces on the Cisco 7100 series, Cisco 7200 series, and Cisco uBR7200 series routers.

Serial network interfaces reside on modular port adapters, which provide a direct connection between the high-speedbus in the router and the external networks. ThePA-E3provides afull-duplexsynchronous serial E3 interface for transmitting and receiving data at rates of up to 34 megabits per second (Mbps).

The port adapter supports both 16and 32-bitcyclic redundancy checks (CRCs). The default is16-bitCRCs; to enable32-bitCRCs, you use a configuration command. For a description of the CRC function, see the “Configuring Cyclic Redundancy Checks” section on page8-10.

Note Although the VIP2 and Catalyst RSM/VIP2 supports online insertion and removal (OIR), individual port adapters do not. To replace port adapters, you must first remove the VIP2 and Catalyst RSM/VIP2 from the chassis, and then replace port adapters as required.

The Cisco 7100 series, Cisco 7200 series, and Cisco uBR7200 series routers support the OIR of all port adapter types.

Support for 16and 32-bitcyclic redundancy checks (CRCs)

Support for G.751 framing or bypass framing

Support for ATM-DXI,Frame Relay, HDLC, SMDS, and PPP serial encapsulations

Support for national service bits

Support for E3 MIB (RFC 1407)

Support for remote and local loopback

HDB3 line coding

Scrambling and bandwidth reduction

Online insertion and removal (OIR)

Management Information Base

Management Information Base (MIB) attributes are readable and writable across the Interim Local Management Interface (ILMI) through use of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

The one-portPA-E3supportsMIB-II(RFC 1213) and the E3 interface MIB (RFC 1407).

The two-portPA-2E3supportsMIB-II(RFC 1213) and the E3 interface MIB (RFC 1407).

PA-E3Port Adapter LEDs

The one-portPA-E3port adapter has one status LED and six uplink port status LEDs (RCLK, FERF, OOF, AIS, RL, and LL) for the serial E3 port. (See Figure1-3.)

LEDs

After system initialization, the ENABLED LED goes on, indicating that the port adapter has been enabled for operation.

The following conditions must be met before the PA-E3port adapter is enabled:

The port adapter contains a valid microcode version that has been downloaded successfully.

For Cisco 7000 and 7500 series routers, the port adapter is correctly connected to the VIP2 and the midplane and is receiving power in the Cisco router.

For the Catalyst 5000 family switches, the port adapter is correctly connected to the Catalyst RSM/VIP2 and is receiving power in the switch.

The bus recognizes the port adapter.

If any of these conditions are not met, or if the initialization fails for other reasons, the ENABLED LED does not go on.

Table 1-1describes thePA-E3LEDs.
