5 Configure HiperMAX ATCA


Configure a HiperMAX-ATCA base station using the built in web based interface. This prepares the equipment ready to be discovered by Netspan.

This procedure has the prerequisites that the shelf manager has been correctly inserted and seated, and the blue hot-swap LED should be off.

5.1 Set Initial Configuration on the Shelf Manager


Access the ATCA Shelf Manager in the following ways: Chassis Data Module (CDM) serial connection (LAT-local access terminal) by the Shelf Alarm Panel (SAP) or a CDM if fitted. Ethernet by a local IP address on the Shelf Manager Ethernet network access.

LAT connection offers access to all Shelf Manager configuration tools except the web interface, and the Ethernet connection offers access to all Shelf Manager configuration tools except boot prompt environment variables. For a new Shelf or if the IP address has been forgotten the IP address is set using a local access terminal (LAT) in the ARM Boot environment. A serial interface can be used to provide a LAT connection. This allows manipulation of the shelf manager at all levels including the boot prompt, Linux command line and the shelf manager command line interface. The LAT Serial PC to Shelf manager RJ45 connection is shown below:

Figure 3 HiperMAX LAT Serial PC to Shelf manager RJ45 connection


The serial console default configuration is: 115200 baud rate 8 data bits no parity

Page 19

Commercial in Confidence

UGD-D00090 Rev A.1

HiperMAX ATCA Commissioning Guide

1 stop bit.

5.1.1 Check the IP Address for IP Access


The shelf manager IP address will probably have a default IP address of 192.168.0.2. This can be confirmed using a LAT cable to access the Linux command line of the shelf manager and executing the ifconfig command. If using local network access this default address may be used. To configure a shelf address, refer to the subtopic Configure the Shelf Address in this guide. Further commands may be given using LAT through a local IP connection.

5.1.2 Connect to Shelf Manager on Local IP Connection


An Ethernet connection may be used to provide access to the Linux command line, shelf manager application command line interface and the shelf manager web interface. This Ethernet connection may be either local or across a network (assuming the IP address, netmask and gateway have been configured appropriately using the LAT connection). A local IP connection to the shelf manager will differ depending on whether the commissioning/maintenance laptop is a Windows or Linux platform. If using Windows, configure the laptop IP address to 192.168.0.xxx and a network mask of 255.255.255.0 by the control panel network setting, and connect the laptop and shelf manager with an Ethernet cross-over cable. Then it should be possible to web browse from the shelf manager. To use the web interface, enter http://192.168.0.2 on the command line of a browser.

If it is not possible to establish an Ethernet connection it may be that there is a physical configuration problem.

The shelf manager has a set of four jumpers that direct whether Ethernet traffic routes to the front panel or the back plane of the shelf manager. These jumpers should be set correctly as shown in the figure below. Use the Board Removal procedure for removing the card. For front panel communications, the jumpers should be connected on the pin pairs (1:2) nearest the face plate of the card.

Figure 5 HiperMAX-ATCA Shelf Manager/ jumper pair (2:3) for back plane communications

5.1.3 Configure Single Shelf Manager


This procedure can be performed entirely from the LAT or partly from the LAT and partly with a local Ethernet connection.

This procedure has the prerequisites that the shelf manager has been correctly inserted and seated and the blue hot-swap LED should be off.

To configure a single shelf manager, perform the following steps: 1. Connect to the Shelf Manager. See Connect to Shelf Manager. 2. Configure the shelf address by LAT. See Configure the Shelf Address. 3. Configure the root user password by LAT. See Set Password by LAT. 4. Configure the date/time by the LAT. See Set Date / Time by LAT. 5. Configure the IP network definitions by LAT. See Set the IP Address for Network Access by LAT.

5.1.4 Configure Dual Redundant Shelf Manager


This procedure can be performed entirely from the LAT or partly from the LAT and partly with a local Ethernet connection.

This procedure has the prerequisites that the shelf manager has been correctly inserted and seated and the blue hot-swap LED should be off. In addition, the active shelf manager status LED should be on and green, the other should be blinking.

To configure a single shelf manager, perform the following steps: 1. Configure the primary (top) shelf manager as described in Configure Single Shelf Manager above. Page 21 Commercial in Confidence UGD-D00090 Rev A.1

HiperMAX ATCA Commissioning Guide

2. Configure the secondary (bottom) shelf manager as described in Configure Single Shelf Manager above. 3. Switchover from the active to the backup shelf manager. See Check Dual Redundant Operation. 4. Repeat Switchover (to ensure it works in both directions).

5.1.5 Set the IP Address for Network Access by LAT


In order to gain network access to the Shelf Manager values are required for the IP address to be assigned, the subnet mask and the default gateway IP address. To set a new IP address: 1. Login to the shelf manager as root sentry login: root Password: default password, either leave blank or use password as set. Welcome to Clinux BusyBox v0.60.5 (2004.10.20-19:22+0000) Built-in shell (msh) # 2. Reboot the shelf manager. Interrupt the boot sequence (simply hit any key) to get the ARM boot prompt. Then to set IP address at the boot level: # reboot > setenv ipaddr <allocated IP address> > setenv netmask <subnet mask> > setenv gateway <default gateway IP address> > saveenv > reset The shelf manager will then boot up and arrive back at the login prompt. sentry login: 3. Login to the shelf manager as root and complete the configuration and set IP address at the application level. sentry login: root Password: (default password leave blank or use password as set in Password Setting) Welcome to Clinux

At this point the shelf manager can now be physically attached to the network by Ethernet cable to the port on the shelf manager front panel. The final step of the above instructions is simply a placeholder for the upgrade image and upgrade utility later in the overall procedure. These instructions on Shelf Manager Configuration, Configure the Shelf Address, Password Setting, Date / Time setting, Setting the IP Address for Network Access should all be repeated for a second shelf manager if provided.

5.1.6 Configure the Shelf Address


Before commencing this action, a value is required for the 30 character string used to identify this shelf. It should be noted that the string will be converted into 6 bit packed ASCII and, as such, only the following characters may be used: Uppercase alphabetic characters (although any lower case characters are converted automatically) Numbers 0 to 9 Characters <space> ! # $ % & ( ) * + , - . / : ; < = > ? [ \ ] ^ _

1. Login to the shelf manager as root. sentry login: root Password: default password leave blank or use password as set 2. Enter the shelf manager command line interface. # clia Page 23 Commercial in Confidence UGD-D00090 Rev A.1

HiperMAX ATCA Commissioning Guide

CLI> 3. Assign the shelf address with the corresponding command CLI> shelfaddress Assigned Shelf Address Shelf Address Info set successfully 4. Re-read the shelf address. CLI> shelfaddress Shelf Address Info: ASSIGNED SHELF ADDRESS CLI> 5. Exit the CLI application and log off. CLI> exit (exits out of command prompt) # exit (exits out of Linux)

5.1.7 Set Password by LAT


1. Login to the shelf manager as root sentry login: root Password:(there is no default password, leave blank) 2. Use Linux to set the password using the passwd command # passwd Changing password for root Enter the new password (minimum of 5, maximum of 8 characters) Please use a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers. Enter new password: Re-enter new password: Password changed. # # exit (exits out of Linux)

5.1.8 Set Date / Time by LAT


1. Login to the shelf manager as root. sentry login: root Page 24 Commercial in Confidence UGD-D00090 Rev A.1

HiperMAX ATCA Commissioning Guide

Password: (default password leave blank or use password as set in Password Setting) 2. Use the Linux date command to set the date / time. The date command takes the following form: date MMDDHHMMSSYYYY So, for example # date 03051159002008 Wed Mar 5 11:59:00 UTC 2008 3. Validate it has been set correctly. # date Wed Mar 5 11:59:05 UTC 2008 # 4. Log off the shelf manager. # exit

5.1.9 Check Dual Redundant Operation


To check the operation of dual redundancy, perform a switchover as follows:

For a complete check the switchover should be in both directions.

5.1.9.1

Switchover by LAT

1. Login to the shelf manager as root. sentry login: root Password: (if there is no default password, leave blank) 2. Enter the shelf manager command line interface. # clia CLI> 3. Initiate the switchover using the switchover command.

HiperMAX ATCA Commissioning Guide

This procedure initiates the switchover from the active shelf manager in this instance, but this is one of the few CLI commands that will work on the backup shelf manager.

CLI> switchover 4. This Shelf Manager is now active but is shutting down to trigger a switchover. CLI> 5.1.9.2 Switchover by web interface (network connection in place)

To perform the Shelf Manager switchover from the BS Web Page, perform the following steps: 1. Bring up a web browser and enter the local or network IP address of the active Shelf Manager. The following web page will be displayed.

Figure 6 HiperMAX Web Shelf Manager Main Page


2. Select the Switchover link then submit the request. The response will indicate that the active manager is shutting down.

5.2 Configure Ethernet Switch


The switch can be managed on an exclusive connection or over the same Ethernet as the traffic. The advantage of using an exclusive connection is that the switch can still be managed if the network Ethernet is down.

8.2 Download / Upgrade Software


When upgrading both Netspan and Hardware, the Netspan upgrade should be done prior to doing a software upgrade to BS or SS.

8.2.1 Order Of upgrade


1. Base Stations 2. Subscriber Stations.

8.2.2 Process Overview


On-line software download is supported and operates while network traffic is running. The BS and SS can store the previous loaded software so that in the event of software corruption the last known good software can be recovered. The progress of the SW upgrade can be monitored individually on the Software tab of the BS/SS management page by clicking on reload. Currently, Netspan does not support the software download feature to 3rd party CPEs. Software upgrade is performed with help of Software Image Files and Software Image File Suites. Software Image Files define the file, the file server and how the file can be found by the TFTP/FTP server. Software Image File Suite defines a set of images required by a particular BS/SS as defined by Software Category (OS, Application etc.). Software Categories enable the software operations to be carried out on all the hardware of a particular type on a network-wide basis.

In order to do software upgrades on individual base stations, use the Software Tab on the Base Station Management page then select Use this BS Config. When performing a global network wide upgrade, however, any Hardware set to Use this BS Config will not be upgraded.

8.2.2.1

Client Operations for Network Wide BS Upgrade

All BSs should be set to Use Global Config. Any BSs set to use BS Specific Configuration will not be upgraded in this process.

It is possible to have mixture of option 1 and option 2, to allow network-wide upgrade with some equipment specific upgrade (where overridden individually on Manage/Software tab on individual BS or SS).

8.3 Manage Profiles


Service Flows are assigned to a Subscriber Station by defining a Service Product. Each Subscriber Station has a single Service Product to define the capacity and capability associated with the service delivered to each customer. Within the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard a Service Product can define up to sixteen Service Flows which provisions the types of service (web browsing, VoIP, FTP, etc) delivered by each Subscriber Station. Detailed QoS specification is defined within the Service Class and the filters which tag a level of QoS to a particular flag or packet type is defined within the Classifier Rules. A single QoS rule defined within the Service Class can be associated with one or more Classifier Rule(s).

Procedural content for this procedure is located in the Netspan Operations Guide.

10 Appendix A
10.1 Commission GPS Receiver
This procedure is optional. Enter this procedure only if a GPS Receiver is to be part of the BS TRx equipment.

Set up requirements for commissioning are detailed in the Job Specification.

10.1.1 Modes of Operation


Depending on the conditions, the module can work in one of the following modes: Initialisation: After a power-up, the initialisation mode assures the configuration of the system. The typical time to perform the configuration of the system is up to 10 seconds. Warm-up: In this mode, the system is waiting for the GPS initialisation (Satellites acquisition, tracking algorithms...) and for stabilisation. Tracking Fast: After the warm-up phase, the oscillator is ready to be tracked but with a short time constant to assure that the system is able to compensate for the deviation of the phase during the retrace phase of the oscillator. The duration of this phase depends of the status of the oscillator regarding the following process: During WARM-UP phase, the system continuously monitors the slope of the phase variation versus time between the oscillator signal and the frequency reference (GPS). - The system stays in WARM-UP mode (cold oscillator or unavailable reference) -The system enters in long time TRACKING FAST mode (1 hour) - The system enters in short time TRACKING FAST mode (10 minutes) - The systems enters directly in NORMAL TRACKED mode. Normal Tracked: This is the normal mode of working. The system uses the time constant defined by the user (2000s by default) Holdover: If no input is available, the module enters in holdover mode. The tracking function is blocked and the oscillator delivers its own frequency for the outputs.

10.1.2 Power-up GPS Receiver


The step-by-step procedure to power up the GPS Receiver is as follows: 1. Plug the supply cable into the GPS receiver. Page 59 Commercial in Confidence UGD-D00090 Rev A.1

HiperMAX ATCA Commissioning Guide

2. A few seconds after power-up, the status of the system must be: Green LED blinking. This indicates that one or more unmasked alarm conditions are active on the module (INIT/WARMUP, GPS, Oscillator alarm conditions). If the Red LED is blinking, it indicates a connection problem between the module and the antenna (antenna over-current or undercurrent ). This indication may appear for a few minutes after power-up. 3. After approximately 12 minutes: 4. Red LED on: GPS reference unavailable and the module is in HOLDOVER mode 5. Green LED blinking: GPS reference is available and the module is operating in TRACKING FAST mode. Depending on the status of the oscillator, the TRACKING FAST mode duration can be either 10 minutes or 1 hour. 6. Green LED on: Means that the module is working in NORMAL TRACKED mode.

10.1.3 Configure GPS management


1. Click on GPS Config. 2. Click on Edit Row. 3. This step may require guidance from the Job Specification. With the row index set to 1, select whether the GPS module should be managed from the Primary Master or the Secondary Master. 4. Click Save.

10.2 Maintain Shelf Manager


These procedures address maintenance of the shelf manager: Addition of Shelf Manager Achieving Dual Redundancy Removal of Redundant Shelf Manager Replacement of Non-Active Shelf Manager from Dual Redundant Pair Replacement of Active Shelf Manager Switchover by LAT Switchover by web interface.
