TDM Span 10.5.x (Signaling or Bearer)Description:

In software 10.5.0 the procedure on how to create and configure a Span/DS-1 on the Bearer and Signaling interfaces was modified. In software versions previous to 10.5.0, a span profile was created under each individual DS-1. Starting in software version 10.5.0 the span profile is created first under the Profiles global object. Once the profile has been created, it can then be linked to the DS-1 through a drop down menu within the object pane. The information below explains how to create and configure the TDM Span. The procedure is the same when creating either a Signaling or Bearer Span.

 

Accessing this Pane

Dialogic IMG EMS -> Logical IMG -> Physical IMG -> Facility -> New TDM Spans

 

Maximum Objects

1 TDM Spans object configured to utilize the Bearer Span interfaces can be created under the Facility object -and-

1 TDM Spans object configured to utilize the Signaling Span interfaces can be created under the Facility object.

Notes: (IMG 1010)

Each T1 Bearer Span object pane will have 28 Offsets corresponding to the Bearer interfaces 0-27 on the rear of the IMG 1010.

Each T1 Signaling Span object pane will have 4 Offsets corresponding to the Signaling interfaces 0-3 on the rear of the IMG 1010.

Each E1 Bearer Span object pane will have 21 Offsets corresponding to Bearer interfaces 0-20 on the rear of the IMG 1010.

Each E1 Signaling Span object pane will have 4 Offsets corresponding to Signaling interfaces 0-3 on the rear of the IMG 1010.

Important: The maximum number of E1 Offsets/Spans that can be configured is 24 (24 Offsets * 32 Channels = 768 Offsets/DS-0's). If all 4 Signaling Offsets (0-3) are being utilized, only 20 Bearer Offsets (0-19) can be configured.

 

Notes: (IMG 1004)

Each T1 Signaling Span Pane will have 4 Offsets corresponding to Signaling interfaces 0-3 on the rear of the IMG 1004.

Each E1 Signaling Span Pane will have 4 Offsets corresponding to Signaling interfaces 0-3 on the rear of the IMG 1004.

Field Descriptions:

Interface:  (IMG 1010)

When creating the TDM Spans object, there is a choice of whether to use the Bearer or Signaling interfaces located on the rear of the system. Select from drop down menu one of the following choices

Signaling - Create spans using the IMG Signaling Interfaces or Offsets located on the rear of the system.

Bearer - Create spans using the IMG Bearer Interfaces or Offsets located on the rear of the system.

Interface:  (IMG 1004)

When creating the TDM Spans object on the IMG 1004, the selection will be Signaling Only.

Signaling - Create spans on the Signaling Interfaces or Offsets located on the rear of the IMG 1004.

 

Offset - x Configuration:

Select from drop down menu one of the choices below.

Not Used - The Span/DS-1 will not be used

Profile - All the TDM profiles previously created under the Profiles object are added to this drop down menu. A total of 64 profiles can be added. Select the profile that will be used for each Span/Offset. Refer to the links in the Related Topics section above for more information.

Local Loop-back - Loops back transmit and receive on that individual Span/Offset so that a far end piece of equipment can send a test such as a BERT test towards the local IMG. The Span/Offset LED on the front panel of IMG 1010 will blink orange when the offset is in local loop-back mode. Remote loopback is NOT supported on T1/E1 spans.

Note: When a Span/Offset is placed into loop-back mode, the Span Status in the Object Table Tab will indicate the Span/Offset is Out Of Service. Following the test you must manually put the span back in service. Select the Span/Offset from the Object Table Tab that is Out Of Service. Once selected, right-click and select In Service from drop down menu. This will bring span back into service. Refer to the Loopback Testing topic for more information on this process.
