3 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
3.1 SRAL XD system
In this Training Manual is described the SRAL XD system operating at 7 GHz, 8 GHz, 13 GHz,
15 GHz, 18 GHz, 23 GHz, 26 GHz, 28 GHz and 38 GHz with the plug-in IDU only with the fol-
lowing traffic capacity:
G 2E1
G 4E1
G 8E1
G 16E1
G 32xE1
G 1xE3 + 1WST
G 4xEthernet Interfaces (10/100 BaseT) + 8xE1
The 2 Mbit/s capacity, having the channel arrangement like the one of 2x2 Mbit/s capacity, is
derived from 2x2 Mbit/s option.
3.2 System building
Fig. 3.1 shows the SRAL XD (with 16xE1 IDU) equipment block diagram while Fig. 3.3 shows
the SRAL XD (with 32xE1 IDU) equipment block diagram, Fig. 3.3 shows the SRAL XD (with
1xE3 IDU) equipment block diagram, Fig. 3.4 shows the SRAL XD (with the 4 Ethernet + 8xE1
IDU) equipment block diagram.
The equipment has been realized by physically subdividing it into two assemblies: one for out-
door installation (ODU) and one for indoor installation (IDU).
This subdivision allows:
G the RF losses, due to the interconnection between ODU and the antenna, to be minimized
G a common IDU, for all the applications to be realized.
According to the configurations, one or two ODUs can be equipped.
The connection between IDU and ODU is made through a single coaxial cable.
It is possible to use antennas with diameter dependently of the hop lenght to be realized.
The ODU is available in two versions:

The interconnection between the IDU (with 32x2 BB unit) and the ODU consists of only one
two-way line transporting one composite signal comprising the 155.520 Mbit/s IDU-ODU
stream and of the ODU power supply voltage.
3.5.1 51.84 Mbit/s or 155.520 Mbit/s signal
With regard to the transmission/reception of the 51.84 or 155.520 Mbit/s stream, the IDU-ODU
link consists of an active hybrid.
The active hybrid on the transmission path allows to forward the 51.84 or 155.520 Mbit/s
stream to the output i.e., either towards the ODU or towards the IDU. Afterwards, by means of
the properly connected operational amplifiers the cited signal will be suppressed on the receive
side (i.e., towards the unit proper).
The signal that has been received from the ODU (or from the IDU) is sent to the Receive Cir-
cuits via the active hybrid.
A 128 kbit/s auxiliary channel is present on the 51.84 or 155.520 Mbit/s stream connecting the
IDU and the ODU. The channel also transports all the data necessary for the equipment to ope-
rate properly (alarms, data channel, etc.).
3.5.2 ODU Power Supply
The IDU-ODU interconnection cable also transports the auxiliary DC voltage, required to power
the ODU, which is supplied by the corresponding BB 16xE1/32xE1/1xE3 unit of the IDU. In this
unit are also present the soft-start circuits, the current limitation circuit and the generation of
the open cable alarm or short-circuited cable alarm.
3.6 Supporting frame
3.6.1 1+0 supporting frame
The 1+0 supporting frame (Fig. 3.15) consists of a mechanical structure, and relevant wavegui-
de accessories, suitable for pole or wall mounting of the Outdoor Unit in 1+0 configuration.
From an electrical point of view the frame is a passive device (i.e. waveguide section) that pro-
vides interconnection between its two ports with negligible insertion loss.
The 1+0 supporting frame is used (quantity: 2) also in 1+1 and 2x(1+0) configurations with 2
antennas.

3.6.2 1+1 Supporting frame for frequency diversity
The 1+1 supporting frame from frequency diversity (Fig. 3.16) consists of a mechanical struc-
ture, and relevant waveguide accessories, suitable for pole or wall mounting of the Outdoor Unit
in 1+1 Frequency Diversity configuration.
The two ODU parts are interconnected to the antenna port through a circulator. Both the ODUs
transmit at the same time, delivering the signal on two RF channels at different frequecies on
the same polarisation.
3.6.3 1+1 Supporting frame for Hot stand-by with integrated antenna
The 1+1 supporting frame for Hot Stand-by (Fig. 3.17) consists of a mechanical structure, and
relevant waveguide accessories, suitable for pole or wall mounting of the Outdoor Unit in 1+1
HSBY (Hot Stand-by) unbalanced or balanced configuration.
From an electrical point of view the 1+1 frame is a balanced or unbalanced coupler. The signal
incoming from the antenna port is split unbalanced-wise the two ODUs.
3.6.4 1+1 Supporting frame for Hot stand-by with independent antenna
The 1+1 supporting frame for Hot Stand-by (Fig. 3.18) consists of a mechanical structure, and
relevant waveguide accessories, suitable for pole or wall mounting of the Outdoor Unit in 1+1
HSBY (Hot Stand-by) unbalanced or balanced configuration.
From an electrical point of view the 1+1 frame is a balanced or unbalanced coupler. The signal
incoming from the antenna port is split unbalanced-wise the two ODUs.

4 PHYSICAL INTERFACES
Refer to Fig. 4.1 for the 16xE1 IDU unit, refer to Fig. 4.3 for the 32xE1 IDU, refer to Fig. 4.4 1xE3
IDU and refer to Fig. 4.5 for the ETH IDU.
4.1 Power supply
The IDU makes available, at the outside, a redundant input line for the connection of the power
supply batteries to the equipment.
4.2 E1 Tributary signals
G IDU 16xE1
The IDU makes available at the outside (on the front panel of the 16xE1 IDU) 8 or 16 I/O
lines for the 2 Mbit/s tributaries as per G.703, with 75 Ohm unbalanced or 120 Ohm balan-
ced interface.
G IDU 32xE1
The IDU makes available at the outside (on the front panel of the 32xE1 IDU) 32 I/O lines
for the 2 Mbit/s tributaries as per G.703, with 75 Ohm unbalanced or 120 Ohm balanced
interface.
4.3 Ethernet (10/100 baseT) tributary signals

net (10/100 baseT).
4.4 E3 tributary signal
The IDU makes available at the outside (on the front panel of the 1xE3 IDU) one I/O line for the
34 Mbit/s tributary as per G.703, with 75 Ohm unbalanced interface.
4.5 WST signal

4.6 User channel
The IDU makes available, at the outside, a 64 kbit/s synchronous data channel (V.11) (on the
front panel of the 16xE1/32xE1/ETH or 1xE3 IDUs) for applications defined by the user (examp-
le the use of External EOW).
The SRAL XD system only executes a point-to-point channel carrying and it is absolutely trans-
parent to the channel contents.
The user channel can be configured in two different modes:
G Contradirectional: clock associated with the input data stream originated by BB unit and it
is delivered to an external equipment
G Co-directional: clock associated with the input data stream originated by an external equip-
ment and delivered to BB unit.
The user channel configuration is an action controlled through software, carried out by the Con-
troller unit.
4.7 Alarm and remote control external lines
The IDU is provided with an alarm interface delivering to the outside some signal lines asso-
ciated with the two main functions:
G transparent carrying, through the radio link, of up to 4 alarm/command lines delivered to
the outside (e.g., alarm of open door, smoke alarm, switching commands, etc.)
G sending of 7 output alarms relevant to the equipment status.
4.8 Monitoring of received RF power on the ODU

IMC 0031METD
Issue 1, June 2006

4-3
G F interface
The F interface is used to allow SRAL XD <--> LCT connection, i.e. the connection
among the SRAL XD type NE and the PC, which can be locally connected to the equip-
ment in order to perform supervision and configuration of the local node. An example of F
interface usage is shown in Fig. 4.5.
G R interface
The R interface is used to allow SRAL XD <--> SRAL XD when the NEs are not located
in the same station and are the terminals of one radio link (i. e., only radio connection is
available among the NEs). The R interface is internal to the equipment, and is not acces-
sible to the user. An example of R interface usage is shown in Fig. 4.5
G V-BUS interface (with P/N 634-001/74 Controller only)
The IDU makes available a 128 kbit/s data bus with burst mode (HDLC frame) to connect
the Controller unit to other Controller units belonging to other equipment installed in the
same station.
G V-LAN interface
The V-LAN interface is used to allow SRAL XD <--> SRAL XD/SRAL XD networking
for supervision purposes, when the NEs are placed in the same location and they are not
terminals of the same radio link (i. e. only cable connection is available among the NEs).
Examples of V-LAN interface usage are shown in Fig. 4.5.
G Q-LAN interface
The Q-LAN interface:
G is used to allow SRAL XD <--> SRAL XD/SRAL XD networking for supervision
purposes, when the NEs are placed in the same location and they are not terminals of
the same radio link (i. e. only cable connection is available among the NEs) and V-
LAN interface is not available (i.e., Q-LAN and V-LAN permit daisy chaining of the
TMN supervision channel);
G is used to allow SRAL XD <--> TMN Operation Support System OSS direct connec-
tion for supervision purposes.
Examples of Q-LAN interface usage are shown in Fig. 4.5.
The F interface can also be used to extend a SRAL network with SRAL XD NE
as shown in station C in Fig. 4.5.
If the V-BUS interface is used in the 32xE1/1xE3/ETH IDU, the V-LAN interface
will be not available.

G D interface
The D interface is used to connect two NEs, which belong to disjoined radio networks. An
example of D interface usage is shown in Fig. 4.5. The D interface is internal to the
equipment, and is not accessible to the user.
The D channel of SRAL XD equipment is transmitted using a 64 kbit/s slot selected
among those of E1 tributary number #1 or transmitted in alternative to the 64 kbit/s user
channel.

6 FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
6.1 IDU ARCHITECTURE
6.1.1 IDU (16xE1)
Fig. 6.1 reports the block diagram of the IDU.
The basic version (1+0) of the IDU consists of:
G a 16xE1 Tributary unit (75 Ohm unbal. or 120 Ohm bal.), that represents the physical ac-
cess of the equipment for the 2 Mbit/s (E1) Tributary streams of the public network
G a Controller unit that includes all the control and supervisory functions.
G a BB 16xE1 (162 Mbit/s) unit, that includes all the base band processing, cable protection
and IDU-ODU auxiliary service channel management
The 16xE1 Tributary unit also includes all the alarm and remote commands interfacing to/from
the remote terminal.
All the other configurations of the IDU (2(1+0), A/D-RPT, (1+1) FD, PD and H/S) are obtained
by duplicating only the BB 16xE1 unit.
The IDU is provided with an EEPROM memory fitted on the Controller unit and of a KEY to
insert onto the Tributary unit containing all the configuration parameters.
6.2 2 Mbit/s (16xE1) Tributary Unit
The 16x2 Mbit/s Tributary unit (16xE1) consists of 2 sub-units connected together through a
flat cable.
With regard to the 16xE1 tributary unit 75 ohm (coax) the following are the sub-units:
G common unit
G E1 interface unit (75 ohm)
With regard to the 16xE1tributary unit 120 ohm the following are the sub-units:
G common unit
G E1 interface unit E1 (120 ohm)
The unit carries out the following functions:
G impedance matching of the 2 Mbit/s I/O tributaries

G input tributary branching towards the two BB units should the equipment have been set to
the protected configuration.
The unit therefore consists of all the circuitry required to produce a non-Hitless switching
between the two aggregate signals when the equipment has been set to the protected
configuration. In this manner the BB 16xE1 card is protected against failure.

the BB 32xE1 unit.
The IDU is provided with an EEPROM memory fitted on the Controller unit and of a KEY to
insert onto the Tributary unit containing all the configuration parameters.
6.5.1 2 Mbit/s (32xE1) Tributary Unit
The unit carries out the following functions:
G 32xE1 external tributary interfaces (public interface) are available on the 32xE1 board front
panel. They carry 32xE1 tributary signals. E1 interface is compliant with ITU-T G.703 re-
commendation. The impedance is both 120 ohm and 75 ohm, with a unique hardware ver-
sion using four mini RJ21 connectors. The different impedances are provided via different
cabling on the same connector. Each E1 uses six pins (three for Tx signals and 3 for Rx
signals: in each direction a pin is used for both impedances and the other two pins are mu-
tually exclusive).
G Physical interface management, which is in charge of auxiliary channels (User/D exter-
nal/Alarms) interfacing. Concerning 32xE1 management, a clock recovery function of input
tributaries is available. Each tributary can be enabled or disabled. When a tributary is
disabled, an AIS signal is transmitted at output port. When a tributary is enabled, hardware
provides fault monitoring associated to each tributary, including AIS IN, LOS, Code error
and AIS OUT detection. An interface towards the control section for configuration setting
and alarm reporting are provided. For test and maintenance purposes, local loopback are
available on each tributary signal, to verify interface and cabling integrity. Lightening pro-
tection is provided. For test and maintenance, Access Board allows local and remote loop-
back for each tributary signal.
G Cross connect function allows to cross-connect up to 32xE1 signals. Each local E1 input
port can be switched to any E1 tributary output port, at the other side of the link. Cross con-
nect E1 configuration is set by using of suitable software commands, issued via LCT or
EMS.
G E1 tributary path protection is used only in Ring system type and it allows selecting the E1
signal between the two received signals according to the proper selection criteria. Only in
(1+1) system types, E1 HW protection criteria is used to select the whole set of extracted
E1 signals between the E1 signals received from the first or the second baseband unit.
Both path and HW protection use the same selector block, but with different selector logic
criteria. Path protection uses AIS criteria; HW protection uses only Baseband HW failure
criteria, and it forces all E1 switches to select signals coming from the same Baseband
board.

G A Stuffing/ destuffing mechanism is present for each tributary signal, in order to multiplex
them into an aggregate signal.
G Multiplexing of 32xE1 tributary signals (after the stuffing block) into an aggregate frame al-
lows backplane connection. De-multiplexing of the same signals implemented in the oppo-
site direction on the aggregate received from BaseBand boards.The overall functionalities
associated to the access board are described in the following picture.
G Some other Auxiliary functions are available. A SEEP (i.e a Serial EEPROM) for remote
inventory (PID) is provided to record Factory Inventory data, and user data associated to
Access board. This board holds the memory key receptacle, in order to allow memory key
insertion and usage, and provide communication between Memory key interface and con-
troller. Parallel Alarm connector allows collecting local Station alarms, to provide Remote
Station controls and to provide summarized alarms associated to the local Radio Unit. In-
terfacing toward the controller board, using internal communication channels. A mechani-
cal ON/OFF locking lever switch for power supply control is provided.
6.5.2 BB (32xE1) Unit
The unit carries out the following functions:
G A part of "Baseband" management. BaseBand board multiplexes net payload, service
channel (64 kbit/s channel) and a TMN channel in order to build up the digital radio frame
(aggregate signal) to be transmitted through the radio link. De-multiplexing of the same si-
gnals, in Rx side. The radio frame is completely generated by Baseband. The multiplexed
signal is FEC coded (Tx side) and Decoded (Rx side) for error correction purposes. FEC
analysis of received signal is supported to allow hitless switch in protected system types
and a proper CRC code is used for performance monitoring of the radio link. Signal is then
Interleaved (Tx side) and de-interleaved (Rx side). Finally signal is scrambled (Tx side) to
allow better RF spectrum shaping and de-scrambled (Rx side). FEC, Interleaver and
Scrambler blocks can be enabled or disabled (by-passed) through a proper configuration
setting.
G Baseband board supports Protection logic and switch controls, in order to manage protec-
ted 'System Types'. In particular for FD system types, a Hitless protection mechanism has
been implemented, with delay compensation between the two RF channels. Compensati-
on circuitry can compensate delays up to 16 bit (static portion) plus 16 bit (dynamic porti-
on). Finally interfacing toward the control section for configuration setting and alarm repor-
ting is required. The output of the Baseband management is the radio frame, i.e. the
aggregate frame transmitted on the radio interface. The overall functionalities associated
to baseband board processing are described in the following picture.
G "Cable interface" management : IDU-ODU interface. The 32xE1 BB supports only the
155.520 Mbit/s interface.

6.8.1.1 Data interface unit description
A block diagram of the Data Interface Unit is shown in Fig. 6.7.
A) LAN ports and Trunk port
LAN Port Configuration
The following configurations are available for each one of the four LAN ports:
G Enabling to enable/disable a port (enabling a LAN port means setting it in forwarding mo-
de); default values = enabled for LAN1, disabled for LAN2, LAN3 and LAN4 ports. When
the port is disabled the associated alarms are masked (i.e. forced to normal state) and the
frames received from or directed to the port are discarded.
G Auto-negotiation to enable/disable the auto-negotiation of the port Bit rate and Duplex
mode (other parameters are not subject to auto-negotiation); default value = enabled.
G Bit rate to select the bit rate between the two possible values: 10 Mbit/s and 100
Mbit/s.This configuration is available only if auto-negotiation is disabled; default = 10
Mbit/s.
SRAL XD (plug-in IDU) Siemens

G Duplex mode to select the half duplex working mode or the full duplex one. This configu-
ration is available only if auto-negotiation is disabled; default = half duplex.
G Tx/Rx crossover to select the transmit/receive scheme of SRAL XD: Auto / LAN card /
Switch; default = Auto. The first option allows the LAN port to automatically configure its
transmit/receive scheme in order to proper interwork with the remote appliance connected
to it, not depending on the cable used to connect them. For troubleshooting reason it is pos-
sible to select LAN card and therefore LAN port will behave like a LAN card, thus it will
expect to be connected with a 1:1 direct cable to a Switch (or via a cross-cable to a LAN
Card). Switch setting will behave like a Switch port.
G Long cable to enable the use of a LAN cable longer than 100 m. This configuration is
meaningful only when the bit rate is equal to 10 Mbit/s; default = disabled.
Trunk Port Configuration
The Trunk port state cannot be changed (always enabled).
All the other working modes are preset according to hardware design.
B) Filtering, VLAN tagging and forwarding
Filtering
Source MAC addresses received from the different ports (Trunk and LAN) are stored, along
with the corresponding port the frame was received from. This data-base, called MAC DB in
the following, is used both for filtering and for selective forwarding purposes.
Each frame containing a destination address written in the MAC DB is filtered (discarded) if the
destination address is associated to the same port the frame entered the switch.
Also frames received from a disabled port or that should exit the switch from a disabled port
shall be discarded. Entries are stored in the MAC DB for a given time amount (aging time), then
they are deleted. Each time a frame is received, if the source MAC address matches one of the
entries, the residual survival time of that entry is reset to the configured aging time. If it doesnt
match any of the entries, it is added to the database.
A command to reset the MAC DB is available.
Aging time can be configurable in the range 16...4080 s (4080 s = 68 min), with 16 second
resolution; default value = 896 s (about 15 min).
It is possible to disable the MAC DB updating (no more entries will be added and no entries will
be deleted) in debug mode only.

Forwarding modes
Ethernet frames may contain some optional fields. VLAN tag field (see Fig. 6.8) is one of these
optional fields and it may used by Ethernet bridges to selectively forward frames.
Common Ethernet frames (without additional fields) have a length included in the range
between 64 and 1518 octets. If a VLAN tag is present, maximum length rises to 1522 octets.
Ethernet frames with a length up to 1536 bytes shall be supported on LAN ports. This allows
to support some proprietary frames used by particular appliances.
Four different behaviours are foreseen for the bridge contained in the SRAL XD Data Interface
access unit.
They are briefly explained hereafter.
1. Normal bridging fully connected LAN ports
Frames are forwarded only taking into account the destination MAC address. The presence or
absence of a VLAN tag does not affect the behaviour of the bridge.
LAN ports are fully connected, i.e. frames entering the appliance from one of the LAN ports can
be transmitted on all the other ports (LAN and Trunk), without any restriction.
An uplink frame (a frame entered from a LAN port) will be:
G discarded, if filtering rule is fulfilled;
G forwarded towards one LAN port only, if the destination MAC address matches one of the
MAC addresses stored in the MAC DB and the entry port is a LAN port different from the
one stored in the MAC DB;
G forwarded towards the Trunk port only, if the destination MAC address matches one of the
MAC addresses stored in the MAC DB and the corresponding port in the MAC DB is the
Trunk port;
G flooded toward the Trunk port and all the other enabled LAN ports, if the destination MAC
address is unknown.
A downlink frame (a frame entered from the Trunk port) will be:
G discarded if filtering rule is fulfilled;
G forwarded towards one LAN port only in case the destination MAC address matches one
of the stored MAC addresses;
G flooded towards all the enabled LAN ports in other cases.

6-12
2. Normal bridging isolated LAN ports
Frames are forwarded only taking into account the destination MAC address. The presence or
absence of a VLAN tag does not affect the behaviour of the bridge.
LAN ports are isolated, i.e. frames entering the appliance from one of the LAN ports can be
transmitted only towards the Trunk port and not toward one of the other LAN ports.
An uplink frame will be:
G discarded if the destination MAC address matches one of the MAC addresses contained
in the MAC DB and the corresponding port in the MAC DB is one of the LAN ports;
G forwarded toward the Trunk port in other cases.
Downlink frames are managed as in Normal bridging fully connected LAN ports mode.
3. VLAN bridging selective VLAN forwarding
Only frames containing a VLAN tag containing some VLAN ID values when entering the
appliance are allowed to pass through it.
User can configure up to 64 different VLAN identifiers and the corresponding LAN ports
belonging to each VLAN; Trunk port must always belong to all the configured VLANs (this is set
by embedded software without user configuration).
Each received frame will be discarded if:
G filtering rule is fulfilled;
G it does not contain a VLAN tag;
G it contains a VLAN ID not matching the list of VLAN IDs associated to the ingress port;
G if the destination MAC address is written in the MAC DB and the associated port does not
belong to the VLAN.
Each received frame, containing a VLAN ID matching one of the values contained in the VLAN
table, will be forwarded to:
G only one of the other ports belonging to the VLAN if the destination MAC address is written
in the MAC DB and the associated port belongs to the VLAN;
G all the other ports belonging to the VLAN if the destination MAC address is unknown.
4. VLAN bridging uplink VLAN tagging & replacing
A VLAN ID is associated to each LAN port. If a frame without a VLAN tag enters the switch from
a LAN port it undergoes a VLAN tag insertion; if a frame containing a VLAN tag enters the
switch from a LAN port it undergoes a VLAN ID replacement. Frames entering the switch from
the Trunk port must contain a VLAN tag, otherwise they will be discarded.
SRAL XD (plug-in IDU) Siemens
IMC 0031METD
Issue 1, June 2006

6-13
Frames are internally forwarded according to the same rules explained for the VLAN bridging
selective VLAN forwarding mode (the aforementioned VLAN table shall be automatically filled
in with the VLAN ID values assigned to the LAN ports, this is done by embedded software).
VLAN tag is removed from Ethernet frames exiting from LAN ports, whereas frames exiting
from Trunk port keep their VLAN tag.
Using this forwarding mode on both sides of the link provides a more secure transport than the
Normal bridging isolated LAN ports mode because traffic in both directions is always
restricted to only configured ports (isolated LAN ports forwarding mode floods downlink traffic
to all ports when destination MAC address is not present in the MAC DB).

Fig. 6.17 Summary of the front panel LEDs
a) In 1+1 configuration there are in total 4 LEDs: two LEDs (CH A and CH B) on the BB unit 1 and two LEDs (CH A and
CH B) on the BB unit 2. Only one of the four LEDs is ON. The LED is ON on the active BB unit.
In 1+0 configuration LED CH A is always ON (green) and LED CH B is always OFF.
b) In 1+1 configuration if the BB unit is not active, both LEDs (CH A and CH B) are OFF.
In 1+1 hot standby configuration the active BB unit is connected to the active RF Transmitter.
c) On the RJ-45 connector of Q-LAN and V-LAN interfaces are present two LEDs (green): LED1 (on the left of front view)
signals the receiving status and LED2 signals the connection status of the interface.

7 PROTECTION SYSTEM
ARCHITECTURE
The system protection in 1+1 configuration can be split in two functional blocks:
G tributary section
G service channels section
7.1 Tributary Protection
The Fig. 7.1 shows the tributary protections general block diagram.
Two protection modes have been realized:
G Hardware protection: that performs the system protection from hardware failures (e.g. pa-
rameters degradation or failure of electronic devices, connection lines interruptions etc.).
This mode can't avoid errors burst during the protection because it is a hardware swit-
ching controlled throughout the rising of alarms connected to failures that, in the instants
preceding the switching, brought the equipment to operate in strongly deteriorated condi-
tions (LOS, LOF etc.).
G Hitless protection: that performs the system protection from selective and temporary link
quality degradation e.g. the propagation fadings. This mode, based on memory buffers that
guarantee the bit to bit alignment, can operate an errors free protection when fadings less
of 100 dB/sec occur.
The protection modes of SRAL XD System follow these main rules:
G Each HW failure happening in Tx chain (IDU + ODU) is protected actuating the available
hardware switches as per the chosen Frequency Diversity or Hot Standby mode.
G Each HW failure happening in Rx chain (ODU + IDU), upstream the 'switch hitless', is pro-
tected actuating the hitless switch (in this case the hitless switch works like a hardware
switch i.e. it does not perform the error free protection).
G Each HW failure happening in Rx chain of IDU, downstream the hitless switch, is protec-
ted actuating the available hardware switches".
G In case of 1+1 Frequency Diversity protection, the degradation of the 'active' radio channel
is protected actuating the hitless switch which, in this case, can perform the error free
protection if the degradation is caused by a selective fading not faster than 100 dB/sec.
The protection rules above detailed produce the enabling/disabling of the HW alarms compo-
sing the summarized hardware alarm used by each one of the protection logics.

Note that:
G When the protection system actuates the hardware switches, both the chains, Tx (IDU +
ODU) and Rx (ODU + IDU), are switched at the same time for the following reasons:
G any failure of the active transmission chain
G failure of the active Rx chain downstream the switch hitless
G CARD FAIL of the active BB 16xE1 unit or 1xE3 unit
G extraction of the active BB 16xE1 unit or 1xE3 unit
G LINK ID CODE error, detected via Sw, on the active BB unit
G The operating mode of the protection system minimizes the number of Tx hardware swit-
chings, in the case of Rx chain failure of the relevant transmission active ODU, and there-
fore reduces the events of tributary traffic loss in the opposite direction to which the Rx fai-
lure has happened.
7.2 Rx tributary Protection
The tributary protection diagram (see Fig. 7.2) concerning Rx section:
G the hitless switch position inside the Band Base unit. A and B blocks summarize generic
hardware functions, explained later.
G the Rx switches, sited inside the Common Accesses unit, are controlled by a command
which comes from the protection logic (detailed in the following).
The hitless switches receive the 16xE1, ETH or 1xE3 tributary at both inputs. The switching is
operated by the logic circuitry described later. It is based on the detected alarms: the hitless
switches protect against alarm of the RF section and 'A' sub-units; the final switches only pro-
tect against hardware failures.
7.2.1 Tx tributary Protection
Two different modes of Tx protection architecture, due to the equipment system type, are avai-
lable:
G 1+1 Frequency Diversity configuration
G 1+1 Hot Standby configuration
Note: The following symbols are used:
G PRF: RF power value of the signal outgoing from antenna;
G P1: power value set via SW for the main ODU;
G P2: power value set via SW for the secondary ODU;

7-3
G Pmin, Pmax: Minimum and maximum allowed power values.
Mode a): 1+1 Frequency Diversity configuration
The Fig. 7.3 shows a tributary protection diagram concerning the Tx section.
Note that transmission switches send the same aggregate signal to the RF sections.
This configuration has not a priority unit. When alarms occur the system switches from a unit
to the other and the new working unit keeps on working even after alarms or failures have been
resolved (unrevertive mode).
Mode b): 1+1 Hot-Standby configuration without RF switches (one antenna).
In this configuration secondary ODU is only coupled with the main ODU with a coupler CL as
shown in the Fig. 7.4. The direct unit is priority and it is preferably chosen when no alarms or
equivalent alarms occur (revertive mode) but it is also possible the unrevertive mode throug-
hout the presetting set by LCT or by the remote management system.
The main ODU can be squelched if hardware failure conditions occur in the Tx chain. The
squelch commands are controlled via SW depending on the status of command generated by
Tx protection logic but can also locally generated in the ODU if the communication channel bet-
ween IDU and ODU is not working.
The controller manages the Tx Power value of main and standby channels in order to guaran-
tee a (C/I)min.
In Hot-Standby (1+1) configuration when an alarm occurs the system switches from main unit
to the secondary. Before switching the power transmitter fail alarm (Tx_PWR_ALM) is latched.
Two cases are possible:
1. If Tx_PWR_ALM is active system behaves in unrevertive mode, that is: the secondary unit
keeps on working until the operator forces manually the main unit (after the failure has been
resolved).
2. If the active alarm is not Tx_PWR_ALM, the secondary unit keeps on working until the
alarms of main unit is active. When alarms expires the system automatically switches again
to the main unit
7.2.2 Protection Structures
The various protection architectures are realized as shown in Fig. 7.5 (Tx section, Hot Standby
configuration), Fig. 7.6 (Tx section, Frequency Diversity configuration) and Fig. 7.7 (Rx sec-
tion).
The figures also show the switching commands listed below:
G HW SW CMD generated by hardware (Tx/Rx) protection logic housed in the BB unit;
SRAL XD (plug-in IDU) Siemens
IMC 0031METD
Issue 1, June 2006
2006 Siemens AG
7-4
G RF SW CMD generated by hardware (Tx) protection logic housed in the BB unit and ma-
naged in the ODU;
G HL SW CMD generated by hitless Rx protection logic.
The switching commands shown in the figures above are generated by the protection logics,
which are implemented on both BB units. These logics use the following inputs:
G alarms and status signals coming from radio units.
G presetting set by local operator interface (PC) or by the remote management system.
The operation of the switch, actuated via software, allows the forcing of the active radio channel
at the receiver side, regardless of the status of alarms and external commands. This switch
overrides hitless protection logic.
When the power supply of a card containing a switch fails, the switch automatically goes in a
disabled status, in order to avoid interference with the signal passing through the other way.
7.2.3 Hardware protection logic
This logic, shown in Fig. 7.8, protects the system from hardware failures of IDUs and ODUs.
The hardware protection logic allows the transmission to the antenna of the signal coming from
the unit with no alarm (Tx side protection) and the transmission to public connectors of the tri-
butary coming from the unit with no alarm (Rx side protection).
The hardware protection logic, split in Tx section and in Rx section, generates the following
commands:
G HW SW CMD that controls Tx and Rx switches at the same time;
G RF SW CMD in case of Hot Standby configuration.
In Hot-Standby configuration, the switch command RF SW CMD is generated on both the BB
units and sent to the correspondent ODU through the communication channel between IDU
and ODU, managed by the BB unit.
HW SW CMD is not used for Tx switches but only for Rx switches.
In Frequency Diversity configuration, the ODU ignores the RF SW CMD and only HW SW CMD
is used.
In all cases, when the communication channel is not working or is disconnected, the correspon-
dent ODU guarantees an open switch to avoid unwilling conditions. The open switch status is
automatically maintained also during the power-up time.
Fig. 7.8 shows the alarms used by hardware protection logic.

When working automatically, the switching logic on IDU generates the switch command using
the following signals:
G A summarized Tx local failure alarm (local Tx HW ALM): this alarm is set for failures on the
Tx Section of BB unit and ODU of the radio controlled by the local protection logic.
G A summarized Tx remote failure alarm (remote Tx HW ALM): this alarm is set for failures
on the Tx Section of BB unit and ODU of the radio not controlled by the local protection
logic.
G A summarized Rx local failure alarm (local Rx HW ALM): this alarm is set for failures on
the Rx Section of ODU and BB unit.
G A summarized Rx remote failure alarm (remote Rx HW ALM): this alarm is set for failures
on the Rx Section of ODU and BB unit.
G A local system status signal (local HW SW CMD): this signal comes from the local system
switching logic and it is necessary to avoid useless switching in Frequency Diversity confi-
guration.
G A remote system status signal (remote HW SW CMD): this signal comes from the remote
system switching logic and it is necessary to avoid useless switching in Frequency Diver-
sity configuration.
G A priority signal: this signal is based on the physical place held by the BB unit (identified by
a "Slot Sense" pin) and defined the priority level of the unit in case of conflicts.
The automatic protection logic is overridden by the following settings from local operator inter-
face (PC) or from remote supervision system:
G HW FM1: service forced for BB #1 unit
G HW FM2: service forced for BB #2 unit
The "Slot Sense" signal identifies the physical position of the BB unit and sets a priority criterion
when both cards have no alarm or when forced status conflict each other.

7.2.4 Hitless protection logic
This logic protects the system from link quality degradation.
The hitless protection logic generates the HL SW CMD command in consequence of the alarms
of the local radio channel and the remote radio channel that the hitless protection logic, on both
the BB units, receives as inputs.
Fig. 7.10 goes in detail about the structure of the hitless switch protection logic and Fig. 7.9
shows where the alarms, used by the logic and below listed, arise.
G Loc ODU Alm a summarized failure alarm coming from the correspondent ODU
unit. This alarm is sent through the communication channel
between IDU and ODU and managed by the switching logic
housed in the local BB unit.
G Loc DEM Alm a summarized failure alarm coming from the local IF-DEM
section. This alarm is sent through the communication channel
between IDU and ODU and managed by the switching logic
housed in the local BB unit.
G Loc HL Alm a summarized failure alarm coming from the local Rx hitless
section.
G Loc H-EW a High Early Warning alarm coming from the local FEC.
G Loc L-EW a Low Early Warning alarm coming from the local FEC.
G Rem HIGH Alm a summarized failure alarm coming from the remote system. This
alarm is the sum of the remote ODU, DEM and HL alarms.
G Rem H-EW a High Early Warning alarm coming from the remote FEC.
G Rem L-EW a Low Early Warning alarm coming from the remote FEC.
All these alarms are divided in three categories: all the up mentioned alarms except H-EW and
L-EW belong to the more serious category (HIGH Alm). The protection logic allows the passa-
ge of the less serious alarmed channel, when no signal is forced.

8 SERVICE CHANNELS
MANAGEMENT AND
PROTECTION
The radio service channels are:
G USR 64 kbit/s, V.11, synchronous co-directional or contra-directional
channel, reserved for the user and available on a public
connector of Accesses unit.
G R 64 kbit/s synchronous contra-directional embedded channel,
reserved to transmit radio network supervision messages.
G D 64 kbit/s, synchronous contra-directional channel, reserved to
transmit radio supervision messages, using a time slot of the
2 Mbit/s tributary. The channel is managed throughout the
Controller unit in mixed radio/cable links. The Qtcp protocol is
used.
G Dext 64 kbit/s, V.11, synchronous contra-directional channel,
managed by the Controller unit, in alternative to the 2Mbit/s
embedded D channel, to connect different equipment (e.g.
SDH) to the TMN supervision center. In this case the Qtcp
protocol is also used. The channel, available on a public
connector of Accesses unit, doesn't have protection.
Service channels are controlled throughout the functional blocks identified as "Services Insert"
and "Services Drop" as shown in the following figures.
In (1+1) Hot-Standby configurations, the same tributary is transmitted on both aggregated radio
channels. Service channel protection thus follows the same rule of the tributary.

They are made up of the following signals:
The Fig. 8.1, Fig. 8.2 and Fig. 8.3 show the logical structures the allow the management of the
USER channels in the various configurations.
8.1.1 Radio Embedded Communication Channel (R)
The R channels are managed throughout the Services Drop/Insert functional blocks of Base
Band unit and they are directly connected to the Controller unit.
In the 1+1 configuration, the status of HW SW CMD commands determine which of the two
channels is active whereas the CONFIG signal, setting by local operator interface (PC), carries
the active channel towards the SCC1 port of the Controller unit .
In the other configurations, the CONFIG signal enables the passage of both channels, available
in consideration of the fixed ON status of HW SW CMD commands, to the relevant SCC ports
of Controller unit.

8.1.2 Tributary Embedded Communication Channel (D)
The D channels are connected to Controller via Accesses unit.
In the 1+1 configuration, the status of HW SW CMD commands determine which of the two
channels is active whereas the CONFIG signal, setting by local operator interface (PC), carries
the active channel towards the HDLC1 port of the Controller unit (see Fig. 8.6).
In this case the second HDLC port of the Controller is available for the Dext channel.
In the other configurations, the CONFIG signal enables the passage of both channels, available
in consideration of the fixed ON status of HW SW CMD commands, to the relevant HDLC ports
of Controller unit (see Fig. 8.7).
If the embedded D channels are disable (separately setting by local operator interface (PC) or
by the remote management system) the HDLC ports are available for two Dext channels.

slots or, in the case the wiring is running under the raised floor, they are made to ascend like-
wise.
9.1 16xE1 IDU
9.1.1 Primary supply voltage connection
The outdoor assembly (ODU) is remotely power supplied by the indoor IDU (P/N 732-101/61)
by means of 1 coaxial connection cable (2 in the 1+1 configuration).
The indoor assembly BB units are fed by DC/DC converters, which transform the delivered
-48 V voltage.
The primary supply voltage, delivered by 48 V battery, has to be applied to the 3-poles male
connector MAIN POWER INPUT. See Fig. 9.1.
9.1.2 Connector functions
Fig. 9.2 to Fig. 9.16 show the positions and functions of the connectors.

10.2 ACTIVATION
This paragraph includes the procedures for checkings that can be carried out during the instal-
lation while activating the equipment.
10.2.1 Local checks
All the units comprising the equipment are tested and adjusted at the factory in order to optimi-
ze the characteristics: usually, checks on these unit are not required while installed.
Therefore, the procedures here below described have to be utilized only in case of problems
arising in the system, due to equipment malfunction.
The checks are:
G make sure the equipment is correctly equipped as per indications in the Chp. 6.
G check the connection cables (or cable) between the indoor assembly and the outdoor as-
semblies (or assembly) are connected and IDU/ODU connection have been made as per
indications in the par. 13.2 "IDU/ODU CONNECTION WITH BRAIDED COAXIAL CA-
BLE" or par. 13.3 "IDU/ODU CONNECTION WITH 1/4 COAXIAL CABLE".
G check the equipment is connected to the primary supply voltage as described in the
par. 9.1.1, par. 9.2.1, par. 9.3.1 and par. 9.4.1.
10.2.2 IDU first installation
G Insert the KEY into the right connector on the 16xE1 Tributary unit (see Fig. 10.1) or 1xE3
tributary unit (see Fig. 10.2) or ETH Tributary unit (see Fig. 10.3) or 32xE1 Tributary unit
(see Fig. 10.4).
G Switch ON the IDU by turning the switch situated on the front cover of the 16xE1/32xE1/
ETH/1xE3 Tributary unit.
G At this point the Controller reads the S/N and the type of license of the KEY and stores it
internally.
G The LCT shall now be able to complete the equipment configuration. (Based on the type
of license memorised a basic default configuration will be memorised on the KEY).
G When configuring the equipment through the LCT, the configuration will be automatically
memorised both on the Controller unit and on the KEY.
The KEY must always be inserted during regular equipment configuration.
Should it be removed, the "Memory key disconnected" alarm will be activated.

The following are the alarms associated to the KEY:
10.2.3 Alignment
To make easy the aiming operation, the ODU is equipped with a BNC connector that makes
available the AGC voltage as function of the received field.
10.2.4 Local checks on the equipment
10.2.4.1 Control of the system configuration
Control, by means of the supplied SW (LCT), that the system configuration is according to what
required for the connection in object. In particular, it is necessary to set on both terminals the
configuration, the operating frequency and the ATPC enabling, according to what foreseen by
the specifications related to the interested link.
Eventually, configure the equipment according to what specified in Guide to use of the control
software, in the Operator Manual (OMN).
If a KEY other than that used during the first installation is inserted while the
equipment is ON, the Controller compares the S/N and the type of license
memorized (and that corresponds to the first installation KEY) with that of the
KEY inserted. A data misalignment is detected and the "No setting mode" alarm
is activated which will prevent modifying the configuration through the LCT.

It is necessary to execute the alignment of the antennas to ensure the correct
operation of the equipment and to make reliable the radio link to the remote
terminal.
For the procedures of adjustment and aiming of the antennas, refer to the
documentation annexed to the antennas themselves.

10.2.4.2 Configuration of IP address
On the first installation, the IDU has a default IP address (192.168.255.3) and then the user can
access the NE, set the network IP address and build the map containing the IP address itself.
For this purpose, refer to the guide to use of the management program, of the OMN manual.
If the network planning was not available, it is necessary to insert, in the two terminals, addres-
ses belonging to two different IP subnetwork (for example: site A = 100.100.100.6; site B =
150.150.150.6), Netmask 255.255.255.0, to be able to control both the Network Elements
10.2.5 Link checks
10.2.5.1 Final checks
After all the local checks and the alignment operation have been executed, check that the levels
of the received power in both the terminals are in compliance to the project specification.
10.2.5.2 Switching test
In presence of protected configurations (1+1 Frequency Diversity or 1+1 Hot Standby), proceed
to the check of the switching functionality.
With the aid of a PDH (2 Mbit/s) frame analyzer, connected to the tributary access points, check
that, after the different switching operations, the service stays active.
10.2.5.3 Restore of the operating conditions
Once the checks on the connection have been executed, restore the operating conditions of the
system (removing the possible manual forcing).
For a correct execution of the switching operations, refer to the guide of use of
the management program, in OMN manual.
