Product Description

OM-Online
OM-Online is a software package used to access repeaters and fiberoptic devices.
OM-Online is divided into two software parts; a platform independent Java GUI and a Windows-based
communication server (CommServer). The communication server handles connections to repeaters over a
serial cable or a modem. The Java GUI and the communication server can be run on different computers in a
network. This version of OM-Online may be installed stand alone or installed as part of NWM-Repeater

What's new in OM-Online since release W?


❑ Support for the following TRAC Tickets:
• TRAC 53 : OMO hangs when running a report on the WRH
• TRAC 55 : CDMA repeater reports an invalid output power
• TRAC 59 : Power alarm page: OMO validates unselected fields
• TRAC 61 : OMO - Export/Import function is missing
• TRAC 64 :OMO is not able to stay connected to ISG running 1.3.6
❑ Support for individual GSMR RF Path Configuration

Getting Started OM Online

❑ Better support for repeater networks. We have added a network topology view, details view,
selectable data columns, and batch jobs for all repeaters in a connected network.
❑ Multiple logins within networks (except for SLW remote).
Minor changes:
❑ The book "Connections" has been renamed to "Ports."
❑ There is a user/printouts directory where all printouts and reports are stored.

Getting Started
The following two tutorials provide a quick tour of the basic functionality of OM-Online:
The first tutorial shows how to connect and work with a repeater using the Ports book.
The second tutorial expands on the first and shows how to work with repeaters using the Repeaters book.

Tutorial I
This tutorial shows how to use the Ports book to connect to repeaters.

Preparations
To work through this tutorial you need:
❑ A PC with OM-Online R4 (Rev U) installed.
❑ An SLW repeater.
❑ A serial cable.
Before you begin you need to:
1. Connect the serial cable between a free serial port on the PC and the local connection port on the
repeater.
2. Switch the repeater on.
3. Start OM-Online R4.
A newly installed OM-Online should look like the picture below. Note that if you have upgraded from an earlier
release of OM-Online the Ports book will contain your old Connections.

Create a Port
OM-Online uses Ports to identify communication ports. A Port contains all data needed to establish a
connection to a repeater.
The Ports Book contains your communication ports. A communication port in OM-Online describes the
physical or logical communication port to use, which protocol to use and where the port is located. The port
location is most often your own computer but OM-Online supports remote ports via the CommServer, so the
port might be located on another computer.
Since the repeater in this example is an SLW repeater, and we will be using a cable to connect directly to the
repeater, we'll create a SLW Direct Cable Port, select Insert > New Port to start the New Port Guide.

Figure 1-2 Port Type Screen


In the Port Type page:
1. Select SLWD - SLW Direct Cable.

044-05393 Rev B 1-3


Getting Started OM Online

2. Click Next to open the properties page:

Figure 1-3 Port Properties Screen


In the Port Properties page:
1. Give the Port a meaningful name.
2. Leave the two CommServer fields to their default values.
3. Select the serial port to use.
4. Click Finish.
You now have a port that you can use to connect to SLW repeaters. Other port types are created the same
way, only their properties differ.
To see the new port expand the Ports book. To see all details of the new connection select it and turn on the
details pane. (View > Details on/off).

Connect using the Port


1. Select the Port.
2. Choose Access > Connect and wait until the Network tab shows up.
While OM-Online are connecting to the repeater it displays a progress dialog. From this dialog you can follow
the steps OM-Online takes to connect to the repeater. You can also cancel the the connection if you change
your mind.

Figure 1-5 Connection Progress


When the connection to the repeater is established the dialog closes and the Network tab is opened. In this
particualar case the network tab contains a single BSC but if we had been connected to a network all the
repeaters on the network would have been listed.

the repeater.
In the navigation tree:
1. Expand General Settings.
2. Click Name.
In the Name pane:
1. Edit the Repeater Name.
2. Click set and the new name is written to the repeater.

Disconnect
When you are done you need to disconnect from the repeater. You can do that from any tab.
1. Select Access > Disconnect.
2. Click Yes in the Confirm Disconnect dialog.

Tutorial II
A better alternative than to use Ports is to connect via the Repeaters book. The Repeaters book stores all that
is needed to connect and login to a repeater with a single mouse click, although you still need to have set up a
port, which you learned how to do in Tutorial I.

Create a gateway
If you already have ports defined, the first step is to create a Gateway. A Gateway contains all data that is
needed to connect and optionally login to a repeater. The same gateway can be used for direct and remote
connections.
Furthermore, you can use the same gateway to connect to any repeater using the same connection type (PPP
or SLW) and the same password.
1. Make sure that the Books tab is visible.
2. Select the Repeaters Book.
3. Select Insert > New Gateway to open the Add Gateway dialog:

Figure 1-9 Add Gateway Screen


In the Add Gateway dialog:
1. Give it a meaningful name to reflect its destination or use.
2. Select Type: SLW.
3. Enter the repeater's password in the Password field.
4. Make sure that Auto logon is checked.
5. Let the rest of the setting keep their default values and click OK.
Your new Gateway shows up in the Repeaters Book. To see its details turn on the details view (View >
Details). You can see both the data you entered and the connection path, that is, which logical port OM-Online
will use when connecting to the repeater.

Figure 1-10 New Gateway Screen


As you can see in the picture above the "Remote connect path" is marked as "na", i.e. not available, this is
because we have not yet created a Port for SLW remote connections.

Connect using the gateway


1. Select the gateway you created.
2. Select Access -> Connect
OM-Online will now connect to the repeater and then automatically log you on. You can now continue working
with the repeater as shown in Tutorial I.

The Books Tab OM Online

The Books Tab


This tab gives you a common access point for all your offline data. This is where you manage your ports, your
repeater phone book and other offline data. You can also connect to repeaters using either the Ports or entries
in the Repeaters book.
The Books tab displays the data in a table to give you an overview and allows you to inspect the details in an
optional details pane.

Repeaters Book
The Repeaters book contains your repeater phone book. This is where you keep your repeaters and their
connection settings organized. The repeaters book is actually not only a phone book; you can, and should, use
it for direct cable connections as well.

Entry Types
The Repeaters book is built up with the following entry types:
❑ Gateway, which is the core entry type. Use gateways to identify the repeaters with connection
capability
❑ Folder. Use folders to hierarchically organize your book content.
❑ Network, which is a type of extended folder used for keeping track of repeater networks.
❑ Network Repeater populates a Network and are created by OM-Online.

Gateway
A Gateway entry contains information on how to connect and login to a repeater. This includes which port to
use, PPP user data (if applicable), the phone number to the repeater, the repeater password and the
connection type.
When you are working with remote repeaters there is a one-to-one coupling between a gateway entry and a
physical repeater since the phone number uniquely identifies only one repeater. When you use a direct cable
connection, a single gateway entry can be used to connect to several repeaters as long as the connect and
login data for the repeaters are the same.
It is often convenient to have gateways defined specifically for direct cable connections. For example, when
you set up a new repeater network and you need to connect directly to each repeater to set up repeater
network parameters. Create a gateway directly under the Repeaters book and use that while setting up the
network. When the network is up and running you can remove the gateway or add a phone number and move
the gateway into your folder or network structure.
A Gateway entry can be created directly under the repeaters book, in a folder or in a network. A Gateway that
is part of a network inherits its type from the network, that is, if you create a gateway in an IP repeater network
then the gateway will become an IP gateway. Gateways in networks do not have the auto login ability.

inherit the type from its network.

PPP User The PPP user and password to use


PPP Password

Folder
When you have a lot of entries in your Repeaters book, you can use folders to organize the content to make it
easier to find what you need. You can, for example, use folders to organize your data into geographical
regions.
A folder has a name and nothing else. You can create folders directly under the book, in other folders and in
networks. A folder may contain any other entry type.

Folder properties
Name The name of the Folder

Network
A Network entry is a specialized folder that you can use to keep track of repeaters in repeater networks. Note
that you do not have to use network entries to work with repeater networks. If you use a standalone gateway
and connect to a network, OM-Online will present the nodes in the network and allow you to login to any node
in the network.
Use network entries when you
❑ Want to keep the list of network nodes available after you have disconnected from the repeater
network.
❑ Want to be able to connect and login to network repeaters directly from the Repeaters Book.
To use network entries you:
❑ Create a network entry.
❑ Add at least one Gateway to the network.
❑ Connect to the repeater network to allow OM-Online to populate your network with network
repeaters.
Each time you connect to the repeater network, OM-Online will compare the current repeater network with the
one stored and add the network repeaters that are new. OM-Online will not delete network repeater entries.

Importing OM-Online R1 and R2 phone books


Earlier releases of OM-Online used two simple text files to store the phone books. One file contained phone
numbers to IP repeaters and the other phone numbers to SLW repeaters.
In OM-Online R4 we have added a hierarchical repeater book that stores not only repeater phone numbers but
also lets you organize these numbers into folders and even networks. This means that the old file format is no
longer sufficient.

Importing R2 phone books


1. Select the destination folder in the Repeaters book or select the book itself.
2. Select File > Import Phone book to open the Import Phone Book dialog.

Figure 1-11 Import Phone Book Screen


3. Click the "..." button to browse for the phone book file.
4. Select the repeater type.
5. Click OK.
Remember that since earlier versions of OM-Online used one file for each repeater type you must import each
repeater type separately.

About R1 and R2 phone books


OM-Online R1 used [omo-install-dir]\config\ppp.phb and [omo-install-dir]\slw.phb to store phone numbers to IP
repeaters and SLW repeaters respectively.
In OM-Online R2 we changed the directory structure slightly by introducing the [omo-install-dir]\user\settings
directory to better keep track of user settings. This is where OM-Online R2 kept its phone books.
Both OM-Online R1 and OM-Online R2 used the following file format:
; this is a comment
repeater-name|repeater-phone-number

Creating a new repeater book entry


To create a new repeater book entry you:
1. Select the entry that is to contain the new gateway.
2. Select Insert > New Gateway, Insert > New Folder, or Insert > New Network depending on what type of
entry you want to create.
3. Fill in the appropriate fields.
4. Click OK.

Editing a repeater book entry


To edit a repeater book entry you:
1. Select the entry which properties you want to change.
2. Select Edit > Properties.
3. Edit the appropriate fields.
4. Click OK.

Moving a repeater book entry


There are two ways you can move an entry, cut and paste and drag and drop.
To cut and paste an entry:
1. Select the entry to move.
2. Select Edit > Cut.
3. Select the destination entry.
4. Select Edit > Paste
Use the mouse to drag and drop the entry.
Regardless of the method you use, there are rules concerning where you can move an entry of a certain type.
For example, you can move Network Repeaters within their Networks but not outside of their network. If the
paste command is greyed out or if the mouse pointer shows the cannot drop symbol it means that the
destination doesn't fit the entry you are moving.

Deleting a repeater book entry


To delete a repeater book entry you:
1. Select the entry that you want to delete.
2. Select Edit > Delete.
3. Confirm the deletion in the Confirm Delete dialog.

Using a repeater book entry to connect to a repeater


Connecting to repeaters using the repeaters book is the preferred connect method. You can connect using one
of the following entry types.
❑ Gateway
❑ Network
❑ Network Repeater

Connecting to a repeater

The profiles book contains your saved repeater profiles. You cannot edit the profiles, but you can see which
units they contain by selecting a profile while having the details pane enabled.
To learn how to create and apply profiles see the Profiles section in The RepeaterTtab" on page 1-24.

Ports book
The Ports Book contains your communication ports. A communication port in OM-Online describes the
physical or logical communication port to use, which protocol to use and where the port is located. The port
location is most often your own computer but OM-Online supports remote ports via the CommServer, so the
port might be located on another computer.

Port Types
OM-Online supports the following outgoing port types:
❑ SLW Direct. Use SLW Direct when you are connecting via a cable directly to SLW repeaters.
❑ SLW Remote. Use SLW Remote when you are connecting to SLW repeaters remotely via a
modem.
❑ PPP Direct. Use PPP Direct when you are connecting directly via a cable to IP repeaters.
❑ PPP Remote. Use PPP Remote when you are connecting to IP repeaters remotely via a modem.
The ports have associated Port Properties.

Port properties
Different port types uses different properties. This table describes these properties and which port type they
are relevant to.

Default Ports
OM-Online has one port of each type configured as the default port for each type of connection. The default
port is the port that is used by all gateways in the repeaters book, except for gateways where the port usage
has been overridden.
Default ports are useful when you use different modems in the office and out in the field, as you just have to
change the setting for the default ports to change the port usage system-wide.
If you do not specify which ports to use as default ports, OM-Online picks the first port of each type. If you
delete a default port, OM-Online will use the next port of that type, if one is available.

Configuring default ports


To configure which ports to use as default ports you:
1. Select Access > Default Ports.
2. Change the ports settings.
You can also:
1. Select the Repeaters Book.
2. Select Edit > Properties.
The last method lets you change the OM-Online dialing prefix at the same time.

Creating a port
Most port types use additional hardware and software that must be installed prior to creating a port. The table
below summarizes what the different port types use.

Table 1-7: Port Type Uses

Port Type Uses

SLW Direct Nothing.


SLW Remote A modem.
PPP Direct A RAS dial-up network entry.
PPP Remote A modem and a RAS dial-up netwok entry.

For information about how to install a modem please refer to the modem manufacterer's documentation.
For information about how to create RAS entries please refer to the RAS Configuration guide

Creating a port
To create a port you:
1. Select Insert > New Port to start the Create Port guide.
2. In the Port Type page select the type of port to create and click Next.
In the Port Properties page, give the port a name and fill in the rest of the port properties.

Editing a port
You can change any parameter of a port except the name of the port. The name is used as a key by the
repeaters book when finding default and gateway specific ports and changing the name would confuse this.
To edit a port you
1. Select the port
2. Select Edit > Properties
Make your changes and click OK.

Deleting a port
When deleting a port keep in mind that the port may be in use. It may be one of the OM-Online default ports or
it may be used by specific gateway.
The easiest way of checking port usage is to open the details panel and move through your repeaters book.
The OM-Online default ports are visible when the Repeaters book itself is selected.

Deleting a port
To delete the port
1. Expand the Ports book
2. Select the port to delete
3. Select Edit > Delete
4. Click OK in the Confirm Delete dialog.

Using a port to connect to a repeater


First of all, using ports directly is not recommended. You will most likely be better off using a gateway in the
Repeaters book, see Using a repeater book entry to connect to a repeater" on page 1-14. That being said, this
is how to connect using a port.

Connecting
1. Select the port you want to use
2. Select Access > Connect or Access > Dial depending on how you want to connect.
3. Depending on the type of port OM-Online may ask you for additional information. such as phone numbers
and PPP user data. Fill in the data and click OK
OM-Online establishes a connection to the repeater.

Disadvantages
If you have used earlier versions of OM-Online you may be used to connect using ports (or rather connections
as we called ports then) but there are som distinct disadvantages:
❑ You must manually enter the phone number each time you connect.
❑ You have only one PPP user and password setting per port, if you use the port to connect to
repeaters with different PPP user settings you must manually change the PPP settings.
❑ You will not have the auto login feature since that is only available for repeater book gateways.
❑ You must specify the repeater password each time you logon to a repeater.

The Network tab


When you are connected to a repeater, or a repeater network, the Network tab is available. From this tab you
can select and login to repeaters, you can apply settings to more than one repeater. You can collect and
display data about the repeaters in the network and, when connected to an IP repeater network, view the
network's topology.
The network tab contains an overview panel and an optional details panel. The overview panel can show the
network as a table, this is the default, or as a graph showing the network's topology, the latter only available for
IP networks. The optional details panel shows available details about the currently selected repeater.

The Details Pane


When you work with repeaters, either in a network action or when you are logged in to a repeater, OM-Online
temporarily saves some of the more important data that is retrieved.
Use the detail pane to see all collected data about the currently selected repeater.

The Table View


The table view uses a table to display the current network. The table has a few fixed columns: action marker,
Name, Type and Status. The action marker is used when working with network actions, Status shows at what
level you are logged in and Name and Type displays the name and type of the repeater. In addition to these
fixed columns you can add other columns.

Customizing the table view


The table can be customized with other columns displaying additional data about the repeater. This data may
have been collected explicitly by a network action or implicitly when you have been logged in to that repeater
and looked (or changed) the data in question.
To select which columns to view, use View > Select Columns and check the columns you want to add.

1-18 044-05393 Rev B


The Network tab OM Online

Sorting the table


You can sort the table by clicking the column headers. All columns are sorted alphabetically regardless of
whether the data is text or numbers. Sorting repeaters by type, first groups the repeaters by type and then by
their name making it easier to find a certain repeater.

Printing the table


Use File > Print to print the table to an HTML-file and have it opened in your default browser. The table is
printed as it is shown in OM-Online; sorting and customized columns are preserved.
The file is stored in the printouts directory.

The Topology View


The topology view shows a graph of the current IP network. A small sample network could look like:

Each repeater is drawn as a grey box with two lines of information. On the top line you find the network action
check box, the name of the repeater and the current alarm level. The second line contains the repeater type
and a logged in icon if you are logged in to that repeater.
The first time you change into topology view, OM-Online must collect network data from the FON boards of the
network; this may take several minutes for large networks.

Caveats
There are a couple of things you should be aware of when working with the topology view.
The topology graph shows logical connections, not physical; the lines connecting nodes do not show how the
physical cables are connected, only how nodes are logically connected into subnets.
OM-Online creates the topology view by collecting subnet data and mapping this data to a few standard
network layouts. If the data is incomplete, wrong, or if the current network layout is new to OM-Online, OM-
Online may draw an incorrect graph.

Login
To login to a repeater you:
1. Select the repeater you want to login to. You can do this in either the table or the topology view.

044-05393 Rev B 1-19


The Network tab OM Online

2. Select Access > Login


3. Optionally enter the repeater password, see below
Instead of step 1 and 2 you can double click the repeater to logon to.
OM-Online will ask you for the repeater password when:
❑ You connected using a Port (and not a repeater book entry).
❑ You already are logged on to the repeater. OM-Online asumes you want to change the login level.
❑ The password used last time was incorrect.
In all other cases OM-Online will attempt to use the password provided by the repeater book entry.
If successfully logged on, OM-Online opens a repeater tab to display the settings for the repeater you logged
on to.

Logout
To logout from a repeater
1. Select the repeater you want to logout from. You can do this in either the table or the topology view.
2. Select Access > Logout
OM-Online will logout from the repeater, close all open repeater dialogs and remove the corresponding
repeater tab.

Disconnect
To disconnect from a repeater you:
1. Select Access > Disconnect
2. Confirm that you want to disconnect in the Confirm Disconnect dialog.
NOTE: Disconnecting from a repeater means that the connection will be terminated. If you want login to
another repeater on the same network, use Logout and/or Login instead.
When disconnecting, OM-Online sends a logout signal to all repeaters you currently are logged on to, thus yo\u
do not need to explicitly logout from any repeater.
When the connection is closed all repeater tabs and the network tab is removed.

Network Actions
Network actions are a convenient way of changing and collecting repeater settings for apart of, or the entire
network. The available actions are a subset of what can be done with a single repeater. We have added those
actions we feel will save the most time and are useful when troubleshooting. For example, there is no make-a-
note-in-notepad action, but there is an action to collect the current alarm level.
An action may be lightweight or heavyweight. Heavyweight actions are required to login to the repeater,
lightweight actions are not.
Lightweight actions include:
❑ Collecting alarm levels.
❑ Collecting IP settings.
❑ Pinging nodes.
Heavyweight actions include:
❑ Collecting software revisions.
❑ Collecting alarm call settings.
❑ Resetting alarm levels.
❑ Downloading software.
❑ Clearing event log.
❑ Synchronizing time.

1-20 044-05393 Rev B


The Network tab OM Online

When running heavyweight actions, we recommend that you are not logged on to any of the network's
repeaters.

Running an action
To run an action, mark the repeaters to perform the action on and select the action to run. Actions are selected
from the Action menu.
To include a repeater in a network action, check its action checkbox. The action checkbox is found in the
leftmost column in table view and in the upper left corner of each network node icon in the topology view.
OM-Online provides shortcuts to mark all, clear all, or toggle the checkbox. [EXT] You can also mark all
repeaters of a certain type.

Monitoring a network action


While a network action is running, an action monitor dialog is visible. This dialog shows what action is running,
which repeater that is being accessed and an estimation of the time it will take to complete the action. If the
action completes with no error, the action monitor dialog is closed; if the action fails, the monitor dialog is
replaced with an action result dialog.
From the action result dialog you can clear the action checkbox for the repeaters that the action was
successful on. This is a convenient way to retry the action on nodes where it failed.
Running an action blocks OM-Online from further user input; this is intentional to minimize the risk of network
congestion.

Collecting Alarm Levels


The repeater keeps track of its current alarm level, that is, the level of the most severe active alarm. When you
log on to a repeater, this level is shown in the middle of the Toolbar as None, Warning, Error or Critical.
Use the Collect Alarm Levels action to see the alarm level for all selected network nodes.
You can see the alarm level in both the network table view and the network topology view. To see the level in
network table view, enable the Level column. In the topology view, the level is shown as a colored circle in the
upper right corner of each node. The colors have the following meaning:

Table 1-8: Alarm Level Colors, Alarm Topology View


Symbol Alarm level
Unknown alarm level. The current alarm level has not been collected from this repeat-
er yet.

The repeater has no active alarms, which equals the alarm level None.

The repeater has active alarms, with the highest alarm level being Warning.

The repeater has active alarms, with the highest alarm level being Error.

The repeater has active alarms, with the highest alarm level being Critical.

044-05393 Rev B 1-21


The Network tab OM Online

For a detailed description of the repeater's alarm levels, please see the Alarm Overview.
If you are experiencing network problems the topology view can give you a hint about what part of the network
that needs checking.
Collecting Alarm Levels is a lightweight action.

Collecting Software Revisions


This action collects the bootprom HW version, the and the SW versions of the currently running application,
application 1 and application 2. It also retrieves the hardware version of the CU board. To see the collected
information you need to enable the corresponding columns in the table view.
Use this action to compare the repeater's software setup for example before running a Software Download
action.
Collecting Software Revision is a heavyweight action.

Collecting IP Settings
This action uses functionality only available in more recent IP repeater software to collect IP settings.
For older IP repeaters, almost the same information can be retrieved by logging in and opening the IP Settings
panel.
If a marked repeater does not support this query the query will time out.
Using this action allows you to verify the network's IP settings, for example that the Name Server settings are
correct. As a side effect this action also collects the version of the current software.
The query is the same as when getting topology information, meaning that if you have viewed the topology the
information has already been retrieved for the FON boards of the network.
Collecting IP Settings is a lightweight action.

Collecting Alarm Call Settings


This action collects settings regarding repeater alarm calling. If you are experiencing problems with receiving
alarms, run this action and compare the different repeaters' settings.
The actual data that is collected depends on the network type. For both SLW and IP networks, the following
parameters are collected: call level, primary and secondary phone number and alarm modems. For IP
networks, IP settings are also collected.
To compare the data, make sure that the corresponding columns are visible.
Collecting alarm call settings is a heavyweight action.

Resetting Alarm Levels


Use this action to reset the alarm levels on the selected repeaters to None; if if there is still an active alarm on
the repeater, the alarm level will be raised again by the repeater. For more details on this operation, please see
the Event Log.
The resetting of the alarm level is mainly used to clear the repeater of alarms that does not have a ceasing
state or alarm. For a detailed description of the repeater's alarm levels, please see the Alarm Overview.
Resetting Alarm Levels is a heavyweight action.

Downloading Software
This action downloads software to the marked repeaters.
You can only download software to repeaters of the same type; if you are upgrading more than one type you
need to run a Download Software action for each type.

1-22 044-05393 Rev B


The Network tab OM Online

In the Software Download dialog, specify which file to download and its destination and click OK. The default
destination is the secondary application which is generally the safest option. If your download fails, the primary
software will be left unchanged. Specifying application 1 or 2 gives you control of which software bank to
update, but it might mean that the primary software is damaged if the download fails. Downloading software to
the primary application is not recommended other than when setting up a new network. Finally, if the repeater
has only one application loaded, don't overwrite it.
In the Confirm Software Download dialog, make sure that the software version and its destination are correct
and click OK.
For each repeater, OM-Online makes additional checks to verify that the given software can run on that
repeater.
Note that the Software Download action does not reboot the repeater; you must manually reboot each
repeater. When rebooting repeaters in an IP network the topology view can help you decide the reboot order.
Downloading Software is a very heavyweight action; it is a lot of data to transfer over the repeater network.

Clearing Event Log


Setting up a repeater network, connecting, rebooting and perhaps disconnecting nodes generates a lot of not
very interesting events in the event log. There is usually no need to keep these collected events during a
network setup or network rebuild.
Use the Clear Event Log action to clear the event logs after a major network change; this will make it easier to
spot remaining and/or new issues.
We suggest that you run the operation Reset Alarm Levels after you have cleared the event logs. Resetting the
alarm level generates an event to the event log, making it easier to remember when the log was last cleared.
Clearing Event Log is a heavyweight action.

Synchronizing Time
Synchronize time sets the repeater real-time clock to the current PC clock value. The PC clock is re-read for
each repeater.
Synchronize time is a heavyweight action.

Pinging nodes
Use this action to test the transmission delays within the network. For each selected repeater, OM-Online
requests a test point value and measures the time it takes for this value to arrive. The more jumps that are
needed, the longer it takes. A ping to the gateway should take about 0.2 - 0.4 seconds. Pings requiring jumps
usually takes about 1-2 seconds. If the ping time consistently exceeds three seconds it could indicate a
problem. Ping times are also dependent on what other traffic there is on the network. If, for example, someone
is downloading software to a repeater, e.g. with another OM-Online, the ping times will increase.
We suggest that you run the ping action several times to see if the same nodes are slow all the time.
Use the Topology View, with the details panel enabled, to see if it is a certain part of the network that seems to
be slow.
Pinging nodes is a lightweight action.

044-05393 Rev B 1-23


The RepeaterTtab OM Online

The Repeater Tab


When you are connected and logged on to a repeater, OM-Online displays the repeater's settings in a
Repeater tab. OM-Online uses one tab for each repeater you are logged in to, where the tab's name matches
the repeater's name, making it easy to switch between repeaters.

Changing the login level


If you are already logged on to a repeater, you can change your login level to access more functionality. To do
so:
1. Select Access > Login.
2. Enter the password for the new login level.
3. Click OK.

Logout
To logout from a repeater you:
Select Access > Logout.
This will log you out from the current repeater.

Reports
A settings report can be generated for the current repeater. The report can contain full settings, or be
customized as described below.
See also The Table View" on page 1-18 for printing of the network table and customized columns.

Full Settings Report


1. Select File > Create Report... to start the report guide.
2. Choose if you want to write to a browser only (Browser) or to a file. If you choose to write to a file, then the
file can be automatically opened by checking the Open When Done box.
3. If you choose to write to a file, enter or select a file name with the file browser button "...". The extension
'.htm' will be added to the file name, unless it is already present.
4. When you are ready, click Next >.
5. Wait until all setting information has been transferred and prepared for report display; this may take quite a
while.
6. The report is completed either when OM-Online shows the report or when Done is displayed in the dialog
box.

Customized Settings Report


Customize the report template as follows:
1. Copy the file full.rd, found in the templates folder under the OM-Online program folder (keep it in the same
folder).
2. Rename this file (it is called 'MyTemplate.rd' in this example).
3. Open the file 'MyTemplate.rd'.
4. In the <sections> part, delete those entries you do not want to be reported.
5. In the <HTML> part, change the report name from Full report to something else (it is called MyTemplate
report in this example). In the <HTML> part, you can also change the entry order in the report by moving
the sections in a new order.
6. Create a new report and select the customized template.
7. When you are ready, click Next >.

Printing
You can print most repeater settings from OM-Online by clicking on the Print button. OM-Online does not print
directly to a printer, but to an HTML-file that you can either pass on to a printer or use for other purposes.
From release 3, OM-Online puts all printouts in the printout directory, making it possible to go back and look at
any older printouts. This of course also means that you may need to clean up the printouts directory once in a
while.

Customizing printouts.
The print system of OM-Online works with a combination of template files and a CSS style sheet found in the
templates directory. Advanced users may customize how a printout looks by changing these files. The
following gives some hints on how to do this:
❑ If you want to change the structure of the printout's heading, make your changes in the file print.tpl.
❑ If you want to change global formatting, e.g. select another font size for all printouts, make your
changes in the file omonline.css.
❑ If you want to change the structure of a specific printout, change the template file for those
settings. For example, to change which columns to print when printing the event log, edit the file
EventLog.tpl.
Note that the changes that you do will not only affect printouts, but also reports.

Profiles
A profile is a collection of repeater units' settings saved in a file on disk. A profile may contain all available unit
data or only a subset of the data. Most repeater units' data can be read from the repeater and stored in a
profile. However, there are a few exceptions, for example PPP and alarm users and password settings cannot
be read for security reasons. Units whose data cannot be read can still be part of a profile; when the profile is
applied, OM-Online can ask you to enter the relevant data.
Profiles are useful for many things. You can create a profile containing most repeater settings, a clone, for
example when a major hardware update takes place. Or you can create profiles containing only a minor part of
the repeater's settings; this type of profile is useful when the same settings are used in many repeaters, or
simply as a checklist in order not to forget setting a parameter when setting up new repeaters.
Profiles are repeater type independent, i.e. you can use a CSEL repeater to create a profile and apply the
profile to a BSEL repeater. Common settings will be used, while type specific data will be ignored.

Creating a Profile
This is how you create a repeater profile:
1. Log in to the repeater from where you want to create the profile.
2. Start the Create Profile Wizard by selecting File > Create Profile...
In the Profile Name page
1. Give the profile a meaningful name.
2. Select what to save, a clone or just some of the values.
3. Click Next >.
If you selected to specify the details, the Profile Details pages is shown:
1. Specify the details of the profile, by checking the units that are to be part of the profile and how the units
are to be handled when applying the profile.When specifying the details of a profile, you can select which
unit's data to include and if the data must be confirmed when the profile is applied. Note that some units
must be confirmed, these units have write-only data for example passwords and software revisions.
2. Click Next >.
OM-Online will now upload the requested data and create the profile. To view the profile , expand the Profiles
Book in the Books Tab.

044-05393 Rev B 1-25


The RepeaterTtab OM Online

Applying a Profile
This is how you apply a profile:
1. Log in to the repeater where you want to apply the profile.
2. Start the Apply Profile Wizard by selecting File > Apply Profile...

In the Profile Name page


1. Select the profile to apply.
2. Click Next >
3. Wait while OM-Online uploads the current values.
4. Wait while OM-Online writes the new values.
If the profile contains data that must be confirmed, use the Confirm Pages to Confirm the new values.

Importing Profiles
At startup, OM-Online reads the profiles in the profiles directory into the Profiles book. To import a profile into
OM-Online, copy the profile's file into the profiles directory and restart OM-Online.

Command Line Interface


The Command Line Interface (CLI) is provided for accessing special functions normally not provided in
repeater panels. The CLI window has two panes; an upper pane for output and a lower pane for command
input.
The actual set of available commands may vary with current status and user settings.
Quick help is provided by entering ? in the input field.

Password for login to a repeater or FON may be assigned for three different login levels:
Full is the highest password level with no limitations.
Write is a mid password level with some restrictions for network settings.
Read is a read-only level where no changes except password and callback for read access are
allowed.
For each level there is a Change box and three password fields:
Current - field to enter current password in.
New - desired new password.
Confirm - field for confirmation of the new password.

044-05393 Rev B 2-5


Repeater Access OM Online

To create new passwords when there is no password set, start with the level Full. Check the change box.
Enter the new password in the fields Full - New and Full - Confirm. Press Set to make the changes take effect
or optionally continue with the lower access levels. After pressing Set or Get the presence of a password is
indicated with asterisks (********) regardless of the password's length. An empty password field indicates that
no password has been set for the corresponding login level.
It is possible to have a password set on some levels and no password on other levels. However, if a password
is set on one level, all the higher levels should also have a password set, otherwise the lower-level password
will have no effect, as OM-Online always tries to log on with the highest possible access level.
To change a password, check the change box, enter the old password in the field Current and the new
password in the two fields New and Confirm for the corresponding login level, then press Set. It is possible to
change the password for one or more levels at the same time. No old password is required for unchanged
levels.
To delete a password, start with the lowest login level containing a password. Enter the old password in the
field Current, but leave the fields New and Confirm empty, then press Set.
The check box callback applies to remote SLW modem connections only. When checked, the repeater must
call you back prior to a remote login to a repeater. Your modem's phone number must be stored in the
repeater's callback list, see Repeater Callback Numbers. This is not applicable for IP-repeaters, where
callback is decided by the PPP-user (See “Repeater PPP User” on page 2-7).

Login Registry
The Login Registry shows the last 20 log ins to the repeater.

The following data is shown for each login:
Connection time.
Connection port (OMT/OM-Online Local/Remote and OMSRemote).
Phone number of connecting OMT/OM-Online/NetWay Vision (only for a remote connection).
Login level (Read, Read Write, or Full).

Modem Init Strings


The modem requires an init-string to work properly. The default parameters for different modems vary, and
may also be pre-set. The CU sends default init-strings to the modem, but some modems may need more and
newer versions of modems may need changes to the parameters.
The general requirements for the repeater modem is as follows:
Table 2-12 Repeater Modem Requirements

Echo off E0

Verbose response V1

Quiet off Q0

DSR active &S0 for most modems

No auto-answer S0=0, see below

DCD follows carrier &C1, normally not needed

Hardware flow control &K3, normally not needed

Disconnect for DTR=OFF &D2, recommended but often default

Full text response X4

Fix DCE-DTE speed see modem manual

If you experience problems, try adding a long init-string such as ATE0X4&S0S0=0&C1&D2&K3.


In most modems the current setting may be checked using command ATZ in the Modem Debug Dialog.
The CU automatically sends Q0V1E0X4S0=0 (SA10202/1 R2A and later, older versions Q0V1).

Notes:
Characters before AT cannot be used for SW-versions SA10201/2, SA10202/1 <=R2E and
SA10202/2 R1A
CU-SW SA10202/1 R2A-E does not handle lower-case p; AT+CFUN=1 is used by default. For
modems having problems with that, an exclamation mark, '!' suppresses.
CU-SW SA10202/1 R1B requires an additional X4 in the init-string.
CU-SW SA10202/1 R1A requires an additional X4S0=1 in the init-string.
CU-SW SA10201/2 R2D and later requires an additional E0X4S0=0 in the init-string,
CU-SW SA10201/2 R2A-R2C also requires E0X4S0=1 in the init-string,
CU-SW SA10201/2 and SA10202/1 R1x with Siemens M1 with PIN-code require +CPIN=xxxx
where xxxx is the pin-code. For M1 V2.x the syntax is +CXXPIN=xxxx. Avoid using PIN-code in
these SW-versions.
CU-SW SA10201/2 <=R2C and SA10202/1 <=R1B wants auto-answer from modem (S0=1). Later
versions expects S0=0, but may handle S0=1. All OMT versions requires S0=0.
If the operator wants that the modem shall answer by itself (not recommended for CU-SW
SA10202/1), add S0=1
Most modems has tone dialling as default, but some are happier with a T at the end of the init-
string.
Ericsson DC23 recognizes AT or at, but not At or aT. May be fixed in later versions of DC23
(contact your nearest Ericsson distributor for upgrades).
Siemens M1 V2.x and V3.x handle only 19200bps.

This page defines the modems to use, the order in which they are to be used, and the number of modems to
try when the repeater makes an alarm call.

Figure 2-10 Alarm Modem List


When informing the operation and maintenance central of alarms, repeaters in a network can use modems
connected to themselves (local modems) or modems connected to other nodes in the same network in any
combination. This is useful both as a means to have a reliable alarm transmission, if one modem doesn't work
another can be used instead, and as a way of decreasing the number of modems on a site.
The default behavior if no modem list has been set up is to use the local modem once.

This list contains the available repeaters.
For IP-networks, the repeaters that have reported a modem to the Name Server are displayed first in the list

Address Wire / Fiber interface


The repeater or FON units address in wire or fiber network as seen by other units.
Enter the address in decimal-dot notation w.x.y.z like 172.30.1.65
Address 0.0.0.0 indicates wire or fiber network not used.
All nonzero addresses should normally be selected in the address ranges for private networks:
10.0.0.0 – 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 – 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.255

Mask Wire / Fiber interface


Sub net bit mask defining address space for units connected to one network.
Masks are displayed in decimal-dot notation.
w.x.y.z / m like 255.255.255.224 / 27, where m denotes the mask width or number of binary ones
(255.255.255.224 = 11111111. 11111111. 11111111. 11100000)
It is sufficient to enter the mask width only.
The number of zeros (32 - m) in the mask determines the maximum number of units in one subnet.
With five zeros the maximum number of usable addresses are 2^5 - 2 = 30 corresponding to a maximum of 6
units assuming each unit consumes 5 consecutive addresses.

Gateway Wire / Fiber interface


Address of connected neighbor to reach rest of network (towards NS) or zero if no gateway.

Primary / Secondary NS
Addresses of units responsible for Name Services at the network backbone. A valid NS address is required for
access to other units in the network.

Alarm Server
The Alarm Server address is the NetWay Vision or alarm receiver's CommServer IP address. The
CommServer address and OM Alarm LE when running on the same computer has, in most cases, identical IP
address. Type “ipconfig” command at a DOS prompt to retrieve the CommServer address. Alarm Server
address 0.0.0.0 indicates that the CommServer and the alarm modem are running on the same computer, and
can in most cases be used.
N.B Computer is in this context a simplification, as it is the Network adapter or IP interface on the remote
computer that needs to be the same. Normally, has a computer one (1) IP interface (and one IP address), but
in situations when a computer has more than one IP interface, the Alarm Server address needs to match the IP
address of the IP interface used.

Modem Setup
No modem No modem connected to unit (wire side consumes 3 addresses).
Modem with default address Modem allocated address = wire address + 3 (5 addresses consumed).
Modem with address Enter address for modem.

This button is visible only if the configuration tool is installed.

Note about consumed ip-addresses


The number of consumed pre-allocated ip-addresses at the wire network is 3 if no modem is used and 5 if a
modem is used. The FON fiber network consumes one address.

MIMO Id / Enable MIMO


The MIMO Id and Enable MIMO fields will be visible only for MIMO capable repeaters (FON and WRH) from
the following software versions:
FON: 631-14787-001 version H
WRH: 631-18072-007
MIMO Id: The MIMO id is used to identify nodes that belong to the same MIMO unit. For Nexus FT MIMO units,
both FON boards and the CU must have the same MIMO ID in order for them to be recognized and grouped
together as a MIMO unit. The primary and secondary FON in the FBU also need to have the same MIMO ID so
that they can be recognized and grouped together to be part of the same MIMO unit.
Please note that the MIMO ID used in the Nexus FT and the MIMO ID used in the donor side FON boards do
not need to be the same, although they may be. No two Nexus FT MIMO units on the same network may have
the same MIMO ID. Likewise, no two pairs of donor side FON boards may have the same MIMO ID.

Enable MIMO: This flag needs to be enabled before you can assign a MIMO ID. If disabled, the node will be
considered to be part of a SISO device and will not be considered for MIMO grouping.

Fiber opti- When enabled this setting increases the operating time during external power
cal power failure using the FON internal backup batteries. It is recommended to uncheck
save en- this box for master FON units making it possible for connected slave units to
able transmit alarms during supply power loss.

Receiver

Type Text or number identifying the type of the optical detector diode.

Attenuation Adjustable RF attenuation in receiver part.

Warning Optical signal strength warning level. If not suppressed, a warning alarm is is-
level sued when the received optical power falls below this level.
Error level Optical signal strength error level. If not suppressed, an error alarm is issued
when the received optical power falls below this level. The error level should
be below (more negative than) the warning level.The valid range for both
warning and error receiver levels are hardware dependant. The typical range
is -20 to 0 dBm optical power.
Suppress If checked alarms due to low received optical signal strength will be sup-
alarms pressed.

Transmitter

Attenuation Adjustable RF attenuation in transmitter part.

Fixed att Fixed RF attenuation in transmitter part.

Wave- Wavelength in nanometers of laser diode. This information may be of impor-


length tance when two or more transmitters share the same optical fiber. If two laser
diodes are transmitting on the same wavelength there is a slight risk for optical
signal interference.
Low power When checked operates the optical transmitter laser diode in low power
mode. The low power mode may be used when the optical path loss is low.
When this mode is set a warning text will be displayed: Reduced laser power.

Adaptive Power Control


APC compensates for loss of input signal. With the APC function enabled, the repeater
continuously measures DL RSSI on the BCCH and compares the value to the previously stored
reference value. The difference, delta (Δ) value, is then added to the gain on all DL and UL
channels in the repeater. The maximum delta (Δ) value is 10 dB.

LNA/Voltage Standing Wave Ratio Alarms


OM Online detects LNA alarms triggered by the LNA Alarm Module. The module measures the
current consumption and triggers an assigned external alarm if the current consumption is
above or below normal operation. The alarm levels are adjusted for the normal temperature
variation and attenuator settings of the LNA in order to minimize the risk of false alarms or
missed LNA failures. The VSWR Alarm occurs if the repeater antenna load exceeds a certain
ratio between forward and reflected power.
The VSWR alarm module has two versions: DONOR side and SERVICE side. The DONOR
side module frequency range is 876–880 MHz and the SERVICE side frequency range is
921– 925 MHz.

(forward link). The result is presented in a graph and a spectrum with a span of 2Mhz can be monitored when
amplitude resolution is 1dB and frequency resolution is 25 kHz.
The operator can set the reference level for the graph.
The MRX only measures signals amplified by the repeater and if the operator wants to measure signals
outside the current channels then the channels of the repeater must be changed.
The time from starting a measurement to the updating of the graph can take a while. This time can be reduced
by a temporary stop of the antenna isolation supervision. (See "MRX Antenna Supervision" on page 2-62.)

The MRX can, when activated, continuously supervises both donor and service antennas. An ALARM
WARNING is sent when return loss is below a certain alarm level set by operator. When conditions have
changed and return loss is above the alarm level an ALARM CEASING is sent.
The supervision follows active channels and return loss is measured from the center frequency of the channel
minus 500kHz to the center frequency plus 500kHz.

RAS Configuration
OM-Online uses Dial-Up Networking for communication with new IP-repeaters and FON units.
Dial-Up Networking utilizes PPP (Point to Point Protocol) and RAS (Remote Access Server).
RAS and PPP are accessed from the CommServer. If OM-Online and CommServer are operated on different
computers in a network the settings refers to the CommServer computer.
The settings are identified from OM-Online with a Network Connection or RAS entry name.
To set up a RAS entry some preparations are required.

Preparations of for local cable connection:

NT 4.0 Win 98 Win 2000 Win XP

Preparations of for remote modem connection:

NT 4.0 Win 98 Win 2000 Win XP

After preparations a valid RAS entry should exist.


See "Manage Connections" on page 3-70 for how to access it from OM-Online.

Connection name - RAS Entry


Connection or RAS entry names are used by OM-Online to identify the settings used when connecting to a
repeater using the PPP protocol.
Any descriptive text string may be used as RAS entry name. Letter case is of no significance. (For backward
compatibility with OMT32 the names AiLocalPPP and AiRemotePPP may be preferred.) If OM-Online and
CommServer are operated on different computers in a network the RAS entry name refers to settings in the
CommServer computer. However the RAS entry name is used by OM-Online connections.
See "Manage Connections" on page 3-70 for OM-Online connections.

Repeater Alarms
This part of the help contains an overview of repeater alarms and an alarm reference table that describes the
different alarms the repeater can issue.

Alarm Overview
All repeater alarms are classified in the following levels depending on how serious the causing events are to
the repeater operation.

Alarm Levels
Table 3-2 Repeater Alarm Levels
None is initiated by an event that has no effect to the repeater operation.
None None can be considered as event information. If no alarm is active, None can be indicated as
alarm status in various windows
Warning is initiated by an event that decreases the repeater performance.
Warning Warning is not a serious alarm. It can, for instance, be caused by poor antenna isolation or
low traffic activity.
Error is initiated by an event that makes a part of the repeater not functioning.
Error Error is a serious alarm. It can, for instance, be caused by a synthesizer fault or an external
alarm.
Critical is initiated by an event that makes the entire repeater out of operation.
Critical Critical is a fatal alarm. It can, for instance, be caused by a mains breakdown or an external
alarm such as fire.
Ceasing is initiated by an event that eliminates the cause of an alarm.
Ceasing Ceasing is, for instance, applicable to an antenna isolation alarm when poor antenna isolation
is no longer detected.

Alarm Indication
Alarms are indicated with a LED on the repeater front and can be polled to NetWay Vision or OM-Online.
Combined repeaters indicate alarms for both the repeater units if an alarm has been activated in either of the
units.

Internal and External Alarms


There are a number of internal alarms and four external alarm inputs.
The internal alarms have fixed alarm levels. They are initiated by the CU, BSC or FON software and are listed
in the repeater manual.
The external alarm inputs, EAL1 – EAL4, can be configured for various alarm levels and alarm purposes in the
External Alarm window (described on page 8-4). The external alarm inputs can, instead of being external alarm
inputs, be used for the purposes described below.

044-05393 Rev B 3-71


Repeater Alarms OM Online

Table 3-3 External Alarm Inputs


EAL1 The EAL1 external alarm input can also be used for mains breakdown alarm. The
mains breakdown device is described in the repeater manual
EAL2 The EAL2 external alarm input can also be used for battery backup alarm
EAL3 The EAL3 external alarm input can also be used for fiber-optics alarm, provided a
FON or FOT board is used.
EAL4 The EAL4 external alarm input can also be used for an alarm which is activated if
the repeater door is open.

External Alarm Ceasing


The external alarm inputs can be selected with or without Ceasing.
❑ With ceasing, for instance Warning w ceasing, means that activated alarms as well as ceased
alarms are reported to NetWay Vision or OM-Online. Ceased alarms are reported as Ceasing.
❑ Without Ceasing, for instance Warning w/o ceasing, means that an activated alarm will be
reported to NetWay Vision or OM-Online. When the cause of the alarm has ceased, the event is
assigned the None level.

Alarm Reference List


This alarm reference list includes all alarms recognized by OM-Online.
Additional alarms may have been added to the system after issuing this list.
Remarks for the alarms are found after the table.

supply A sum signal from the PSU1 indicates that at least one voltage
output has dropped. If no mains breakdown relay is used, then
the alarm will also be sent at mains breakdown.
Ceasing PSU1 in the cabinet works properly again.
Ceasing is sent if the PSU1 works at start-up, and there is a cor-
responding critical PSU1 alarm logged in the Events log. The re-
peater will restart when the power is back and this alarm will be
sent.
PSU 2 Critical PSU2 in the cover does not work properly.
A sum signal from the PSU2 indicates that at least one voltage
output has dropped. If no mains breakdown relay is used, then
the alarm will also be sent at mains breakdown.
Ceasing PSU2 in the cover works properly again.
Ceasing is sent if the PSU2 works at start-up, and there is a cor-
responding critical PSU2 alarm logged in the Events Log. The
repeater will restart when the power is back and this alarm will

Alarm configuration guide


Configuration for alarm reception from repeaters is somewhat complicated since it requires setting of
parameters in a number of different softwares. The parameters and softwares involved varies dependent on
whether standalone or networked repeaters are used and whether SLW or IP repeater are used. There is also
different softwares available for alarm reception; NetWay Vision or alarm receiver.

Creating the alarmserver user


How to create an alarmserver user entry depends on the operating system used. This guide assumes
Microsoft Windows XP Professional.
1. Determine a name for the new alarmserver user. This user name will be used both in the computer
receiving alarms and in the repeater's Alarmserver PPP User.
2. In the computer receiving the call (having both an installed modem and CommServer software), select:
Start > Settings > Network Connections > New Connection Wizard
3. In the Welcome to the New Connection Wizard, press Next.
4. Select Set up an advanced connection. Press Next.
5. Select Accept incoming connections. Press Next.

3-82 044-05393 Rev B


OM Online

6. In the Devices for Incoming Connections dialog, checkmark the modem that is to be used to receive
repeater alarm calls. Press Next.
7. In the Incoming Virtual Private Network (VPN) Connection select Do not allow virtual private connec-
tions. Press Next.
8. In the User Permissions dialog, press Add...
9. In the New User dialog, enter the new alarmserver's username (1-32 characters) and password (0-16
characters). Press OK.
10. In the User Permissions dialog, press Next.
11. In the Networking Software dialog, make sure that Internet Protocol is checked. Press Next.
12. In the Completing the New Connection Wizard, press Finish. A network connection named Incoming
Connections should now exist. This name is fixed in Windows XP Professional.

Note: The Powerwave alarm recieving software can reside on a computer other than the one running the
CommServer and receciving the alarm call, as long as there is a network connection between the
machines. Therefore, the next step might be needed:

13. On the computer hosting the Powerwave alarm receiving software, determine the computer's IP
Address by opening a command prompt (Start > Program > Accessories > Command Prompt) and
enter ipconfig. This IP address (or 0.0.0.0 if this machine hosts the CommServer and the modems
receiving the alarm calls), should be used as alarmserver address for the repeaters and FON units.

Network
This section contains separate descriptions of the following Powerwave repeater networks:

IP network
IP (Internet Protocol) network is the latest Powerwave repeater network type with UDP/IP protocol and many
features, such as wire or fiber connection, PPP, routing capabilities for many sub networks, etc.
The IP network description is found on page IP Network Description.

R2R network
R2R (Repeater to Repeater) network is an older Powerwave specific repeater network type with SLW protocol
for wire connection.
The R2R network description is found on page R2R Network Description.
These two network types are completely separate networks that cannot communicate to each other.
Most of the descriptions in this section are focused on remote connection to repeaters. All features described
are, however, applicable also to local connection.

IP Network Description
Powerwave IP network utilizes the latest network technology for communication in repeater networks. The
network communication includes communication between repeaters as well as communication between an
OM-Online or NetWay Vision station and repeaters.
Communication can be initiated either by an OM-Online or NetWay Vision station or by a repeater.
When initiated by an OM-Online or NetWay Vision station, an operator connects to a repeater network and
logs on to a desired repeater. The NetWay Vision station can also initiate communication by means of a
scheduled activity that automatically connects to a repeater network and logs on to a repeater.
A repeater initiates communication when an alarm is to be transferred, normally to a NetWay Vision station. It
also initiates communication if callback is included in a logon session.

About this description


This description comprises the IP network characteristics, the IP protocol and addressing, and contains also
two examples of subnet addressing.
The description is divided into the following main parts:
❑ Requirements for IP networks.
❑ Characteristics for IP network.
❑ Units in IP networks.
❑ Active subunits in IP networks.
❑ Network overview.
❑ The IP protocol and communication flow.
❑ IP addresses and server assigned PPP addresses.
❑ Network masks.
❑ IP network planning.
❑ Address consumption.
❑ An example of subnet addressing.
❑ IP network configuration with OM-Online.
Figures in this chapter contain only communication paths, not RF paths.
NOTE: This manual is not intended to be a textbook for IP networks in general. It only describes how
Powerwave repeaters utilize common IP network technology. You need basic knowledge about IP
network technology to fully understand all the features mentioned in this chapter and to be able to
configure Powerwave repeater networks.

Requirements
To be able to use an IP network, the repeater hardware and software listed below is required. Hardware and
software that does not meet the requirements below can be upgraded in all Powerwave repeaters.
An OM-Online station intended to be used for an IP network has to be configured as described below.

Repeater hardware
DIA board K105/1 version R2A or higher.
CU board K103/3 version R1A or higher.
BSC board K304 or K308.

OM-Online configuration
To be able to access repeaters with IP protocol, the RAS service has to be installed and a phonebook
entry be set up in the communication workstation. This applies to all workstations that are to be used
for cable or modem connection to repeaters. These workstations require also the CommServer soft-
ware.
Refer to the operative system manual or "RAS Configuration" on page 3-1 for information about how to
install the RAS service and set up a phonebook enty.

IP Network Characteristics
The characteristics listed below is applicable to the Powerwave IP network. First, supported network fea-
tures are listed, then not supported features.

Supported network features


❑ Uses UDP/IP (User Datagram Protocol/Internet Protocol version 4).
❑ Routing protocol with capabilities for many subnets.
• Internal routing protocol.
• Powerwave specific RIP version 1 substitute protocol.
• No configuration needed.
• 10 minutes repeater removal delay time per subnet.
• Powerwave specific Name Server.
❑ ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) is used.
❑ Local and remote external connection with PPP (Point to Point Protocol).
• Meets RFC 1661 (except for callback that is Microsoft specific).
• LCP, IPCP, PAP and CBCP.
• MRU 1500 bytes.
• No compression.
• Watchdog: 20 minutes / 2 hours.
• NAPT (Network Address and Port Translation) used for remote connection.
❑ One or more network nodes can communicate simultaneously.
❑ One user only can be logged on to a node.
❑ Two or more users can be logged on to different nodes in a network.
❑ Wire and optical fiber links with ANSI X3.28 control protocol.
❑ W-link characteristics:

3-86 044-05393 Rev B


Network OM Online

• Twisted pair RS-485 bus.


• Bi-directional communication.
• IP carrier.
❑ F-link characteristics:
• Separate TX and RX fibers.
• Multi-drop link communication.
• Transfer rate is 66kBit per second.
• Sub carrier below the RF frequency.

Not supported network features


❑ The SLW (Sliding Window) protocol used by the R2R network cannot be used in any node.
❑ TCP is not supported.
❑ IGMP is not supported.
❑ Multicast is not supported.
❑ Microsoft MS-CHAP is not supported.
❑ DNS is not supported. An Powerwave specific Name Server is used instead.

W-Net Characteristics
A W-net uses a twisted pair of RS-485 bi-directional bus with a master unit and slave units.
An example of a W-net with four repeater nodes is shown in Figure W-net with four repeater nodes.

Figure 3-5 W-net with four repeater nodes


A W-net can contain maximum 13 nodes.
One or several of the W-net nodes can be gateway nodes, containing an RCC or RCU and thus be able to
communicate with an OM-Online or NetWay Vision station via modem.
The W-net in Figure W-net with four repeater nodes contains two gateway nodes (PSTN).
All repeaters in a W-net should be assigned Control Station Capability, which means that it can be the master
unit if the current master unit ceases to work.

F-Net Characteristics
An F-net uses separate TX and RX fibers and multi-drop link communication with a dedicated master unit and
slave units.
The communication transfer rate is 66KBit per second and the F-net has a sub carrier below the RF frequency.
Figure F-net with four receiving nodes shows a simplified schematic view of an F-net with a single fiber
communication path (or an F-net with WDM, one DL wavelength and four different UL wavelengths).

044-05393 Rev B 3-87


Network OM Online

Figure 3-6 F-net with four receiving nodes


An F-net can contain one root node (the left repeater in the figure) and up to approximately four receiving
nodes (the right repeaters in the figure) due to the signal power sharing in the splitters. In this example there
are three 50/50 percent splitters that reduce a signal from the root node to 25% of the generated signal power
to each of the four receiving nodes.
The root node is a gateway node (PSTN). It contains an RCC or RCU and can communicate with an OM-
Online or NetWay Vision station via modem.
The root node only shall have Control Station Capability and thus be the master unit. None of the other nodes
are allowed to have Control Station Capability. The reason is that this is a master/slave communication on
separate RX/TX links. Only one node can speak at the same time.

Node Units
This section describes some configuration examples for different repeater types that can be used in IP
networks. It also shows some examples of communication between an OM-Online station and repeater
networks.
The following repeater units can communicate in IP repeater networks (provided they meet the requirements
listed on page Requirements):
❑ All types of Powerwave repeater units containing a CU, BSC or FON unit.
❑ OM-Online
❑ NetWay Vision

Repeater configuration

A Powerwave repeater can be configured with the following repeater subunits for communication
and RF functionality:
❑ RF circuitry for the repeater radio functionality with donor/service antennas or RF
ports.
❑ BSC/CU controls the repeater and the communication in a W-net. Compact
repeaters have a BSC board, standard repeaters have a CU board.
❑ RIA is an optional board that previously was required for standard repeaters in
R2R networks. The RIA board is not required in IP networks. It can, however,
remain in the repeater making it possible to use the old wires when upgrading
from R2R network to IP network.
❑ FON is a fiber-optic node unit that can communicate both in an F-net and in a W-
net.
❑ RCC (Remote Communication Control) unit is a combined RF and wire modem.
Old standard repeaters may have an RCU modem for RF communication only.

Basic repeater

A basic repeater or remote hub has a BSC or CU board and RF circuitry. It can communicate
with other nodes in a W-net.

Gateway repeater

A gateway repeater or remote hub has an optional RCC or RCU in


addition to the basic repeater. It can communicate with other nodes
in a W-net.

RMU – Repeater Master Unit

An RMU has a donor antenna but no service antenna. Instead, it has


a FON unit that can receive and transmit optical signals via fiber on
the service side, normally to a FOR (Fiber Optic Repeater) connect-
ed to the other end of the fiber.
An RMU can communicate with other repeaters both in the F-net and
in a W-net. It can be configured as a gateway repeater with an RCC
or RCU.

FOR – Fiber-Optic Repeater

A FOR has a service antenna but no donor antenna.


Instead, it has a FON unit that can receive and trans-
mit optical signals via fiber on the donor side, nor-
mally to a BMU (Base station Master Unit) or to an
RMU.
A FOR can communicate with other repeaters both in the
F-net and in a W-net. It can be configured as a gate-
way repeater with an RCC or RCU.

RH – Remote Hub
A remote hub for LinDAS is very similar to the FOR unit and it has the same network functions as the FOR unit.

044-05393 Rev B 3-89


Network OM Online

BMU – Base station Master Unit


A BMU has one or more FON units that can convert RF signals, nor-
mally from a base station, to optical signals and vice versa. The unit
can receive and transmit optical signals via fiber to the connected re-
peaters, normally to FOR units. If there are more than one FON unit
in the BMU, these are normally interconnected via an internal W-net
(that also can include other nodes).
A BMU can communicate with other repeaters both in the F-net and
in a W-net. It can be configured as a gateway BMU with an RCC or
RCU.

OCM – Optical Converter Module


An OCM unit for LinDAS is, functionally, similar to the BMU and it has the same network functions as the BMU.
The OCM has, however, a different cabinet (for 19" rack).

OM-Online/NetWay Vision
OM-Online is a PC workstation loaded with the OM-Online software
and configured with a modem. It can be connected to all repeaters
that have an RCC or RCU and communicate with all repeaters in
connected W-nets and F-nets.
This is applicable also to a NetWay Vision station, which is described
in the User’s Manual.

OM-Online connected to a stand-alone repeater


Figure OM-Online connected to a stand-alone repeater shows the simplest case of communication between an
OM-Online station and a repeater.

Figure 3-7 OM-Online connected to a stand-alone repeater


The OM-Online station is, in this case, connected remotely to a stand-alone repeater. A stand-alone repeater
with IP protocol is treated as an IP network with only one node.

Figure OM-Online connected to an F/W-net shows an OM-Online station connected to an F-net, which is also
connected to two W-nets.

Figure 3-9 OM-Online connected to an F/W-net


The fibers between the BMU and the FOR units are used for both RF transmission and repeater
communication.
An internal W-net in the BMU interconnects the FON units for communication.
The two FOR units are also included in two W-nets together with two additional basic repeaters in each of
these W-nets.
The OM-Online station in Figure OM-Online connected to an F/W-net can communicate with any of the seven
repeaters included in the F-net and W-nets.
For LinDAS, there is an OCM unit instead of the BMU, and RH units instead of the FOR units. Also, for LinDAS
it is not relevant to use the W-net for further units as shown in Figure OM-Online connected to an F/W-net.

Node Subunits – BSC/CU and FON


This section describes the most important subunits needed for repeater networks. These subunits, BSC/CU
and FON, are here described as blocks with network interfaces.

044-05393 Rev B 3-91


Network OM Online

BSC/CU unit
BSC stands for 'Band Selective Compact repeater board' and it is the main board in compact repeaters.
CU stands for 'Control Unit' and it is the repeater control board in standard repeaters.
The BSC/CU unit controls the entire repeater, including the network communication. The unit contains all
software and protocols required for W-net communication.
Figure BSC/CU with communication interfaces shows the BSC board in the compact repeater or the CU board
in the standard repeater with the communication interfaces pointed out.

Figure 3-10 BSC/CU with communication interfaces


Local is the port used for cable connection between the repeater and an OM-Online station. PPP is used for
communication via this port.
Remote is the port used for remote connection via modem between the repeater and an OM-Online or NetWay
Vision station. PPP is used for communication via this port.
WLI is the communication port for W-net.

FON
FON means 'Fiber-Optic Node' and the FON board can be used in all the Powerwave repeater types.
The FON board contains all software and protocols required for both W-net and F-net communication, routing
included. A sole FON board can be a complete node in an F-net as well as in a W-net.
Figure FON with communication interfaces shows the FON board with the communication interfaces pointed
out. The figure shows also some of the most important function blocks on the FON board. The small figure is a
simplified block of the FON board.

Figure 3-11 FON with communication interfaces


The CPU unit and the software (SW) controls the FON unit including the network communication. The FON
unit has the same functionality as an entire repeater, except for the RF part. The RF block in Figure FON with
communication interfaces converts electrical signals to optical signals and vice versa.
The local port is used for cable connection between the repeater and an OM-Online station. PPP is used for
communication via this port.
The remote port is used for remote connection via modem between the repeater and an OM-Online or NetWay
Vision station. PPP is used for communication via this port.

WLI is the communication port for W-net.


FLI is the communication port for F-net. In Figure FON with communication interfaces, this part of the FON
board is marked to indicate an optical part.
The W-net and F-net are interconnected in the FON board, which makes it possible to interconnect several F-
nets via a W-net, see below:

Network Overview
An example of a repeater network is shown in Figure Repeater network overview.

Figure 3-12 Repeater network overview


This network has a BMU with three FON units as F-net root nodes. Two of which are gateway units. A
backbone W-net interconnects the three FON units.
The three F-subnets (FLI) are connected to a number of other FON nodes. These are connected to compact
repeaters (BSC) and standard repeaters (CU) via W-subnets (WLI).
In this network there are four gateway units connected to an RCC or RCU unit.
For LinDAS, there is an OCM unit instead of the BMU. Also, there are only BSC boards in the remote hubs (no
CU boards).

IP Protocol
The IP protocol is the latest Powerwave repeater communication protocol that includes routing functionality for
both wire and fiber nets and IP addressed nodes.
The most important characteristics for the repeater IP network are listed on page IP Network Characteristics.
To be able to use the IP protocol, the BSC and CU software and the FON software in each node included in
the network has to support the IP protocol. Contact your Powerwave sales representative if in doubt about the
software support for the IP protocol version.

Network Mask Characteristics


❑ Repeater nodes connected to each other must be within the same network.
❑ There are no gaps allowed in the mask.
❑ To avoid IP address collision the remote modem repeater port can use an IP address from any
class regardless of the repeater IP network class.

Subnet Characteristics
❑ The maximum mask size is 30 bits.
❑ There are two reserved addresses in every subnet:
• Zero is the address of the subnet itself.
• Max is the broadcast address.
❑ There are two types of broadcast:
• Network broadcast for the entire A, B or C net.
• Subnet broadcast within the subnet.

IP Network Planning
This section describes IP network planning with two examples. The step order in these examples should be
kept when planning real networks.
Before starting the network planning, a few words about address consumption and default numbering of node
interfaces.

Address Consumption and Default Numbering


The addresses for the BSC, CU and FON units are shown in Figure BSC, CU and FON addresses.

Figure 3-17 BSC, CU and FON addresses

BSC and CU units


Five IP addresses (#1 – #5 in Figure BSC, CU and FON addresses) are required for a BSC/CU with a modem
for remote connection. Three IP addresses (#1 – #3) are required for a BSC/CU without a modem.
Address #1 is the WLI interface to BSC/CU in a W-net.
Address #2 is the PPP interface to BSC/CU for local connection.
Address #3 is the PPP interface to an OM-Online/NetWay Vision for local connection.
Address #4 is the PPP interface to BSC/CU for remote connection.
Address #5 is the PPP interface to the modem for remote connection.
These addresses belong to the same subnet.
The interfaces are, by default, assigned the address numbers above. If a subnet has the last IP address bit 0,
then the WLI interface address is 1, the local BSC/CU address 2, and so on.

3-96 044-05393 Rev B


Network OM Online

FON unit
The FON unit has five WLI and PPP addresses identical to the addresses for the BSC/CU unit.
An additional address #1 is the FLI interface to the FON unit in an F-net. This address is, by default, assigned
the next number after the subnet number (address 1 if the subnet address is 0).
The WLI interfaces and the FLI interface belong to different subnets.

Subnetting Example
This section describes how to find an adequate mask for the subnets in a network, and how to create the IP
addresses for these.
The subnetting is performed in the following steps:
❑ Determining the number of subnets.
❑ Finding the subnet with the most host addresses.
❑ Determining network class (A, B or C).
❑ Selecting subnet addresses.
1. Determining the number of subnets
Figure Number of subnets shows an example of a triple-band repeater network with a BMU/OCM gateway
containing two modem gateways and a backbone subnet.

W-Link

Figure 3-18 Number of subnets


The number of subnets in this network is 17. Four of which are F-nets and the rest are W-nets.
2. Finding the subnet with the most host addresses
Figure Most number of subnet addresses shows one of each subnet type with the addresses indicated as dots.

044-05393 Rev B 3-97


Network OM Online

Figure 3-19 Most number of subnet addresses


The BMU/OCM backbone W-subnet contains 16 addresses, which is the highest number of addresses in any
of the subnets.
3. Determining network class (A, B or C)
In this example there are:
❑ 17 subnets.
❑ 16 host addresses at the most in a subnet.
First, try with class C network (255.255.255.0).
For the 17 subnets, a mask with five subnet bits (25= 32) is required.
This gives: 255.255.255.ssshhhhh where sss = subnet bits.
Three bits remain for the host addresses, which give 23 – 2 = 6 host addresses (two addresses are required for
1 subnet ID address and 1 subnet broadcast address).
The class C network is not enough for this example.
A class B network has to be used (255.255.0.0).
The 17 subnets require a mask with five subnet bits (25 = 32) and the 16 host addresses require a mask with
four host bits (24 = 16).
The following 21 bit subnet mask will perhaps match this example:
(11111111.11111111.11111000.00000000)2 = 255.255.248.0 (/21).
It gives 32 subnets with 2048 host addresses, which is an avoidable number of host addresses.
The subnet mask can be changed to:
(11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000)2 = 255.255.255.0 (/24).
It gives 256 subnets with 256 – 2 = 254 host addresses, which will do.
4. Selecting subnet addresses
The private network address ranges are:
Class A 10.0.0.0
Class B 172.16.0.0 – 172.31.0.0 (16)
Class C 192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.0 (256)
To avoid interference with commonly used private IP addresses, we recommend to use the following class B
and class C address ranges:
Class B 172.17.x.x – 172.30.x.x

3-98 044-05393 Rev B


Network OM Online

Class C 192.168.10.x – 192.168.250.x


If the customer's network address is known, then select another network address.
The remote port can use an IP address from any class, see page Network Mask Characteristics.
In this example a class B network address is required.
Start with subnet ID 172.17.0.0 and select addresses from the following subnet address list for mask
255.255.255.0 (/24).
Table 3-13 Subnet Addresses
IP address mask 255.255.255.0 (/24)

It is recommended to use an IP subnet calculator when planning IP network addresses. An example of such a
tool is a freeware calculator that can be downloaded from www.wildpackets.com.

IP Network Configuration
When configuring a node to be part of an IP-network there are settings that must be set, settings that should be
set and settings that may be set.
You must:
❑ Configure the node's network role from the WLI/FLI Node Configuration panel.
❑ Set up the node's IP-addresses, masks, name servers etc from the IP Parameters panel.
You should:
❑ Add an alarm server user from the Alarm Server PPP User page. (There are other parameters that
needs to be set in order to enable alarm delivery, please refer to the Alarm Configuration Guide for
details).
❑ If the node is a gateway, that is, has a modem, add a PPP user from the PPP User panel.
You may:
❑ Change the W-link speed from the Link Speed panel. This is typically only done for large W-nets.
To verify that the node works as expected you can use:
❑ The Network Overview panel to see if the node and its neighbours works as expected.
❑ The Network Statistics panel to check transmission statistics.
Tip
You can get a good overview of the network from the Network tab.

R2R Network Description


This section describes the R2R (Repeater to Repeater) network and node configuration for R2R networks.

Figure 3-24 R2R network with four nodes


The R2R network is an Powerwave specific repeater network that can handle up to 13 nodes, one or several of
which can be gateway repeaters for communication with an OM-Online or NetWay Vision station via modem.
All new Powerwave repeaters have the R2R functionality. Old repeaters can be upgraded with an R2R network
kit, provided the repeaters meet the below described requirements.

Requirements
To be able to use an R2R network, the following hardware and software is required.
Hardware
DIA board K105/1 version R2A or higher.
RIA board The RIA board is required if the K105/1 DIA board has a version lower than R3A.
CU board K103/2 version R1A or higher.
Software
CU SA102 02/1 version R3A or higher.
Information for upgrading old repeaters with the R2R network is found in an R2R installation guide
(Powerwave part # VD202 91/EN).
Protocol
SLW (Sliding Window) is an Powerwave specific protocol developed for the R2R network.
The SLW protocol and the IP protocol do not support each other and they can, consequently, not be mixed in
any node.

Tools

Introduction
This section contains descriptions of OM-Online tools. The following tools are described:
❑ CommServer
❑ Channel Calculator
❑ IP-Planner

CommServer
The CommServer is a communications server that is used by OM-Online to handle all low level
communication. This includes
❑ Serial port handling
❑ RAS connections
❑ Tapi modems

Configuring the CommServer


By editing ./user/settings/cs.cfg you can change some of the parameters that the CommServer use. You can
change:
❑ The port it listens for OM-Online calls on.
❑ How long to wait before using a PPP-connection when RAS signals it has been established.
❑ RAS initialization bypass.

Changing the client port


By default, CommServer listens for its clients on port 8000 and 8001. Port 8000 is used by OM-Online R1 and
is available mainly of historical reasons, and port 8001 by later versions of OM-Online and by other
CommServer clients.
If port 8000 and/or 8001 is used by other applications you can change these values by adding a ctrlport
statement into cs.cfg. For example:
ctrlport = 7442
makes the CommServer use port 7442 and 7443.
Note that you specify the first port to use and that CommServer uses that port + 1 as it's second. Furthermore,
if you change the port numbers used by the CommServer your changes must be reflected in the clients.

Making CommServer wait for RAS


There are times when a PPP-connection is signaled as established by RAS but is not yet ready for traffic. This
can happen when using VPN or when using antivirus programs. By adding a ras.wait statement into cs.cfg you
can make CommServer wait the given number of seconds before telling its client that the connection is
established. For example
ras.wait = 3
makes CommServer wait for three seconds. Three seconds is usually enough but you may need to experiment
a bit.

044-05393 Rev B 4-1


CommServer OM Online

RAS Initialization bypass


CommServer initializes the RAS service at startup. If you don't use the RAS service and want to skip this step
you can add:
ras.initialize = false
This setting is mainly useful for Windows NT. Furthermore, you must not bypass the RAS initialization when
running Windows XP SP2.

Distributed CommServer
Most of the time you will run the CommServer locally, or rather, OM-Online will run the CommServer locally for
you since the first thing it does when started is to start a local CommServer. But sometimes you may want to
run the CommServer on one machine and OM-Online on another.
❑ For example:
❑ When you want to run the CommServer outside a fire wall.
❑ When you have LAN acces at a BMU site and want to run a local CommServer on site.
❑ When you have a server room with phone lines you want to use.
Installing a distributed CommServer
Run the OM-Online installation program and make sure you select only CommServer.

Channel Calculator
Use the channel calculater to calculate channel number from frequencies and the other way round.

Calculating channel numbers


1. Chose the type of system
2. Enter the frequency in the uplink or downlink cell, to make the cell editable double click in it.
3. Press enter.

Calculating frequencies
1. Chose the type of system
2. Enter the channel number in the Channel field
3. Press enter
You can also select the channel number by dragging the slider.

IP-Planner
This is an auxiliary tool for configuration of repeater network ip addresses.
The program (iprepnet.jar) may be used stand-alone or to together with OM-Online, see import and export. Ip
address data may transferred between this program and other programs e.g. MS Excel using files or clipboard,
see working with files.
To install iprepnet.jar on Windows platform run installer iprepnet.exe

All repeater networks starts with a wire subnet (WLI) as root node. This is the case even if two FON-units are
connected with fiber only.
To create a new network select menu Node > Add > WLI Subnet
This will create the root subnet node:

Export ip addresses to OM-Online


Clipboard is used for data export from iprepnet to OM-Online. For successful data transfer it is necessary to
keep clipboard contents unchanged between copy from iprepnet and paste into OM-Online. Data export is
performed from repeater or FON-nodes only. Make sure the name of node exported from matches name of
repeater or FON accessed by OM-Online.
To copy data from iprepnet select the node of interest. Make sure all address fields to be transferred to OM-
Online are filled in. Empty address fields will not be transferred. Select menu Address > Copy for export.
In OM-Online panel Internet Protocol Parameters press button Import.
If successfull affected addresses will change. To make changes take effect press Set. Some address changes
also require repeater reboot in order to propagate changes to other repeaters.
If clipboard data is corrupt an error message will be displayed.
If unit names in iprepnet and OM-Online do not match a warning message will be displayed.
The clipboard format used for data transfer make it possible to bypass iprepnet completely for ip address
management.

Import repeater network from OM-Online


To operate successfully the repeater and FON software must support signals R2R_QUERY_LINK /
R2R_SUB_DBGINFO
In OM-Online panel Explore Network press button Export
A file open dialog will be displayed. Select a new filename with extension xml
This should start the IP Repeater Network Configuration Tool from this file.

Working with files


IP address data may transferred between iprepnet and other programs using a number of file formats or using
clipboard.

Figure 4-6 IP Address Data Transfer


Two slightly different XML formats are used.
CSV (Comma Separated Value) format may be used for data exchange with MS Excel and other programs
e.g. Notepad.
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) may be used for graphical presentation.
Clipboard is used for export of ip addresses to OM-Online. The dashed arrow indicates the possibility direct
data transfer from Excel to OM-Online.

CSV format
CSV (Comma Separated Value) format may be used for data exchange with MS Excel and other programs.

Figure 4-7 CSV Format


If successful, csv files may be opened with MS Excel. However there is a small problem with
internationalization depending on list separator used. csv-files from iprepnet uses ; (semicolon) as list
separator. Depending on national settings Excel may sometimes use, (comma) as separtor.
The cvs format is also used for data transfer of ip addresses via clipboard to OM-Online.

Output using SVG


To create SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), select menu File > Display svg
If successful, a graphical presentation of the repeater network will displayed in the default browser.

In order to view svg files, a plugin like Adobe SVG Viewer is normally required.

Clipboard format for data transfer to OM-Online


The clipboard format used for data transfer is simple semicolon separated list like
"Hawk-
1";true;172.30.254.51;none;255.255.255.0;0.0.0.0;172.30.1.1;255.255.255.0;0.0.0.0;172.30.254.51;172.3
0.254.56;...;...

This format corresponds to one table row in a csv file created with iprepnet.
Using this format it is possible to bypass iprepnet and export addresses directly from MS Excel to OM-Online.
To copy addresses from excel mark one table row and copy it to clipboard. Then, import it to OM-Online using
panel Internet Protocol Parameters and button Import.

Note the use of ... for empty ip addresses. If an address field is replaced with three dots it will not overwrite the
corresponding value in OM-Online. This may be helpful for selective address changes.
