1.4TR-08

The TR-TSY-000008 BellcoreTM standard (commonly referred to as TR-08) describes the generic requirements for interfacing between local digital switches and remote digital terminals via the SLCR 96 digital loop carrier system.

TR-08 has three operational modes. The Z-Plex supports Mode I:

Mode I is a non-concentrated, non-blocking configuration where each channel is assigned a dedicated DS0 time slot.

Mode II is a concentrated configuration (allows blocking) with 48 channels sharing

24 DS0 time slots. Time slots are assigned on a demand basis for the duration of the call.

Mode III is a non-concentrated mode used for coin and D4 single-circuit channel banks.

The RT channel numbering scheme supported by the product is described in Bellcore publication TR-TSY-0000008.

1-2 \ Zhone Technologies

Introduction

Managing the Z-Plex

When a T1 port is configured for TR-08 format, the voice channels assigned to this port are identified by channel number (according to the TR-TSY-000008 document), which may be different from the T1 time slot number. The product supports only Shelf A. The relation between a channel number and corresponding slot number for TR-08 is shown in the following table.

1.5Managing the Z-Plex

The Z-Plex provides the following interfaces to configure the unit:

Serial (craft)—An out-of-band RS232 serial interface.

DS0—The DS0 management channel encapsulates IP traffic in HDLC frames using DS0 24.

Ethernet —You can telnet to the Z-Plex over the Ethernet to manage the unit.

IP over FDL —The Z-Plex unit supports IP over FDL as a way to configure the system via the CLI. The IP over FDL connection is different than the standard FDL interface which provides error checking for T1 interfaces. The two FDL interfaces cannot be used at the same time.

You can configure the Z-Plex using any of the following methods:

SNMP

CLI

TFTP

1.5.1SNMP

The Z-Plex supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) version 1 and version 2 for system management. Network object variables are management information base II (MIB-II) compliant.

SNMP can be accessed over a number of IP interfaces, including IP over FDL, the DS0 24 management channel, or the Ethernet interface. The SNMP agent on the Z-Plex uses to port 161 of UDP for management traffic and UDP port 162 for error events and SNMP traps.

The MIBs for the Z-Plex control the following:

Locating the product on a desktop

Installing the Z-Plex

2.5Locating the product on a desktop

Each unit can be easily set on top of a desk or table. A stable environment is necessary for peak performance of each unit. The chassis should be placed on a flat, smooth surface, such as a table, that is free of contaminants. This surface should be capable of supporting a fully equipped chassis. Be sure to allow enough clearance above and below the chassis for proper air circulation. The metal brackets and feet furnished with the chassis must be used for this purpose.

2.6Wall mounting

Prior to wall mounting check to see if the environment is stable and free from any extreme temperatures, humidity or vibrations of any sort. The unit should be mounted with the fan to the top with at least 2 inches of clear space on the sides, above, and below for adequate air flow. Allow at least 6 inches for cable clearance.

When attaching unit(s) to a wall make sure that appropriate fasteners such as masonry anchors, heavy duty wood screws or expansion bolts are used for heavy objects.

Note: Additional support hardware may be necessary (not included with unit) to secure the unit properly to the wall. If the surface is not solid enough to hold the unit and attached cabling, it is recommended that a small piece of 3/4” plywood be fastened to the wall before attaching the unit. This will help ensure a more stable environment.
