1.2.1.3 Check Downloaded Software Packages by Using MD5 Software


Question

How do I check downloaded software packages by using MD5 software?

Answer

1. Download the MD5_LCT(English) file from http://support.huawei.com. The MD5_LCT(English) file contains MD5 code information after all software and document
packages are decompressed.

NOTE:
Perform the following operations to obtain the MD5_LCT(English) file:

a. Access http://support.huawei.com.
b. Choose Software Center > Version Software > Network OSS&Service > iManager U2000 > iManager U2000 > iManager U2000 > desired U2000
version.
c. Download the MD5_LCT(English) file in the Release Document column.

2. Navigate to http://www.winmd5.com and download the WinMD5.

3. Double-click WinMD5 1.2.exe to run the WinMD5.

4. Drag the downloaded software package to the window for running the WinMD5. The WinMD5 automatically generates MD5 code information about the downloaded
software package and then compares the information with the counterpart in the MD5_LCT(English) file.

The downloaded software package is correct if the information about the software package is consistent with the counterpart in the MD5_LCT(English) file.

The software package must be re-downloaded if the information about the software package is inconsistent with the counterpart in the MD5_LCT(English) file.

HEEX Startpage Pgina 24 de 90

The links to the corresponding descriptions of alarms in the Online Help are added in the detailed information of alarms.

Besides the preceding functions, the U2000 LCT provides various customized functions, as listed in Table 1.

Table 1 Description of alarm functions


Function Description

Alarm browsing The alarm browsing function helps to browse current alarms, history alarms, and events.
Through the alarm browse function, you can query alarms by object where an alarm occurs, function, alarm
status, and alarm severity. In addition, you can save and print the query result.

Alarm sequence Through the sequence customizing function, you can sort alarms by field in the alarm list and customize the
alarm display. In addition, you can save alarms and print the required alarm records.

Dynamic alarm panel Through the alarm panel, you can customize alarm conditions in an alarm template flexibly and display
alarms dynamically. This helps to classify alarms quickly and acknowledge the concerned alarms.

Alarm handling mean Through the shortcut menu, you can perform various operations on each alarm.

Alarm cause and repair suggestion Through this function, you can learn the cause of a selected alarm and the repair suggestion. In addition, you
can click Details to display the alarm reference of the online help for detailed alarm causes and handling
procedures.

Alarm filtering Through the alarm filtering function, you can learn the running status of an NE in real time. In addition, you
can query the alarm status, refresh the status in real time, and query the details of an alarm in the alarm
activation window. You can also print the alarm records that are received recently and meet the print
conditions.

Alarm color display The severity of each alarm in the alarm list is displayed with a corresponding color. The color can be
customized. You can specify a certain alarm and jump to its corresponding NE node in the topology view.

Alarm Statistics

You can learn the alarm status through alarm statistics and alarm analysis.
U2000 LCT can collect alarm statistics based on user-defined conditions. The alarm conditions include the alarm name, alarm severity, alarm function type, alarm rising time, alarm
status, or a combination of any preceding items.

Alarm Acknowledging

Alarm acknowledgment helps to identify whether an alarm is processed.


Alarm acknowledgment helps you to identify a processed alarm. You can then take proper measures by checking whether the alarm is in the acknowledged state.

Alarm Synchronization

The U2000 LCT supports the ability to synchronize NE alarms automatically and manually. You can manually synchronize NE alarms by performing operations through GUI or set an
automatic synchronization policy. When the U2000 LCT restarts or the communication with an NE recovers, the NE sends an alarm to the U2000 LCT. This implements the automatic
alarm synchronization on the U2000 LCT, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 Alarm Synchronization

The U2000 LCT supports the ability to synchronize NE alarm.

Manual synchronization
You can manually synchronize NE alarms by performing operations through GUI.

Automatic synchronization
You can set an automatic synchronization policy. After the U2000 LCT restarts, its communication with an NE recovers, the NE sends an alarm to the U2000 LCT. This
implements the automatic alarm synchronization on the U2000 LCT.

Alarms are synchronized according to the following rules:

If an alarm is cleared on the NE but uncleared on the v, the alarm on the U2000 LCT is cleared.

If an alarm exists on the NE but does not exist on the U2000 LCT, the alarm is added to the U2000 LCT.

NE Alarm Suppression

U2000 LCT supports the ability to suppress NE alarms. If you set the status of an alarm to Suppressed, the NE does not report the alarm.
The difference between NE alarm suppression and NMS alarm masking is as follows: If you enable alarm masking, an NE still reports an alarm but the U2000 LCT does not receive
the alarm. If you enable NE alarm suppression, the NE does not report an alarm, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2 NE Alarm Suppression

Alarm Jumping

The U2000 LCT supports the alarm locating function. This function helps to jump to the topology object that generates the required alarm. In addition, this function helps to quickly
locate a network fault, which improves the efficiency of alarm locating.
The alarm handling link is provided for the alarm jumping function. You can click Details to display the alarm reference of the online help for detailed alarm causes and handling
procedures

Alarm Time Localization

U2000 LCT can display the time when an alarm is generated, acknowledged, cleared, or received as the local time. The U2000 LCT can display the time based on the server time.
The NE that reports an alarm and the current U2000 LCT, however, may be in different time zones. To learn the correct alarm generation time, the U2000 LCT automatically converts
the alarm generation time (NE time) into the local time of the client.

Optical Power Adjustment

You can perform the following operations on the U2000 LCT:

Manage the optical power: Query the input power, output power, and power thresholds of each WDM board.

Perform intelligent power adjustment (IPA): In the case of a fiber cut, the optical amplifier board detects signal loss at the local station. The local station reports an event to
the U2000 LCT. After the event is confirmed, the optical amplifier boards at the upstream and downstream stations reduce their output power to a safe value to protect fiber
maintenance engineers from being injured by the laser emitted from the cut fiber. After the fiber is reconnected, the optical signals are restored and the optical power of
each optical amplifier board automatically returns to a normal value.

Perform automatic power equilibrium (APE). If the optical power of channels detected by the MCA board at the receive end is abnormal, an event is reported to the U2000
LCT. After the event is confirmed, a command is issued to the optical attenuation adjustment board at the upstream station to adjust the optical power of the corresponding
channels. In this manner, the optical signal noise ratio (OSNR) of each channel at the receive end is equalized.

Perform ROADM optical power equalization. After ROADM is enabled for dynamically configuring WDM services, the WDM equipment outputs multiplexed wavelengths.
The optical power between each channel, however, may be greatly different, especially for new add wavelengths. To avoid negative impacts on transmission performance,
the ROADM optical power equalization mechanism is provided. This mechanism first determines whether the wavelengths are pass-through wavelengths or add
wavelengths. Then, optical power adjustment starts. The DWC/WSS adjusts the optical power of pass-through wavelengths, and the optical attenuation adjustment board
adjusts the optical power of add wavelengths based on wavelength labels.

Configure pre-alerts for optical power at ports.

Dispersion Compensation

Perform dispersion compensation with DCM board configured on optical NEs for each band to achieve dispersion equalization.

Use the tunable dispersion compensator (TDC) to adjust dispersion precisely.

In the submarine system, use a separate dispersion compensation board, such as the TDC1 or TDC2, to perform dispersion compensation for signals on the line side of an
OTU board.

Wavelength Monitoring

On the U2000 LCT, you can perform wavelength monitoring management for the OptiX BWS 1600G.

WDM PRBS

On the U2000 LCT, you can perform pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) tests on boards to check the path quality. You can also check whether a WDM link functions properly
before service provisioning.

Submarine Cable Line Management

To perform submarine line management on the U2000 LCT, you need to create a line group for actual submarine lines as the managed objects. In this way, you can easily measure
submarine lines, analyze line data, and monitor the working status of submarine lines. The following operations can be performed on the U2000 LCT:

Perform intelligent power adjustment (IPA): In the case of a fiber cut, the optical amplifier board detects signal loss at the local station. The local station reports an event to
the U2000 LCT. After the event is confirmed, the optical amplifier boards at the upstream and downstream stations reduce their output power to a safe value to protect fiber
maintenance engineers from being injured by the laser emitted from the cut fiber. After the fiber is reconnected, the optical signals are restored and the optical power of
each optical amplifier board automatically returns to a normal value.

HEEX Startpage Pgina 41 de 90

Perform automatic power equilibrium (APE). If the optical power of channels detected by the MCA board at the receive end is abnormal, an event is reported to the U2000
LCT. After the event is confirmed, a command is issued to the optical attenuation adjustment board at the upstream station to adjust the optical power of the corresponding
channels. In this manner, the optical signal noise ratio (OSNR) of each channel at the receive end is equalized.
Configure pre-alerts for optical power at ports.

Dispersion Compensation

The G.652 and G.655 fibers have positive dispersion coefficients and positive dispersion slopes in 1550 nm window. After an optical signal is transmitted over a certain
distance, the accumulation of positive dispersion broadens the optical signal pulse and seriously affects the transmission performance. To minimize this effect, a negative
DCM is used on networks. It uses negative dispersion to compensate the positive dispersion of fibers, so as to maintain the original signal pulse.

The OEQ NE can apply dispersion compensation to each band to reach dispersion equalization.

Wavelength Monitoring

Wavelength monitoring uses the wavelength supervisory unit to monitor the wavelengths that are transmitted from the WDM-side optical interface of the OTU board (including the
service convergence unit) and to control the wavelength drift. This function ensures stable wavelengths.

which session between the two systems is created. If a system does not receive any detection packet from the opposite end in a specific time, the system regards that a failure occurs
in some part of the bidirectional channel to the adjacent system.
The U2000 LCT supports the functions of performing the BFD detection on IP/GRE tunnels and the inter gateway protocol (IGP).

HEEX Startpage Pgina 45 de 90

LPT Configuration

LPT is used to return the remote-end link status to the near end. The near-end equipment performs operations depending on the remote-end link status. When the intermediate
transmission network of the services becomes faulty, the LPT informs the access equipment at both ends of the transmission network to enable the backup network. That ensures the
normal transmission of the important data.

Synchronization Protocol Configuration

In the application scenario of dual-homing, the status of the peer equipment needs to be obtained either for the MC LAG or for the cross-MC LMSP. Meanwhile, the actions on both
sides need to be negotiated based on different fault cases. With the method of adding information of the peer end, a channel is established for control status synchronization with the
peer end. In this manner, the control packets can be transmitted and received through the channel and link fault detection can be performed.

LMSP/MC LMSP Configuration

Linear MSP protection contains 1+1 linear MSP and 1:N linear MSP. They use the protection channel to protect services that are transmitted on the working channel. When the
working channel fails, services are switched to the protection channel. The linear MSP applies to the POS interface and structured STM interface.
The multi-chassis (MC) LMSP can implement the LMSP among NEs.
The U2000 LCT supports the following functions of LMSP/MC LMSP configuration:

Create a linear MSP.

Check the linear MSP switching status.


Perform linear MSP switching.

QoS Configuration

QoS indicates the performance of the data flow that travels through a network. The QoS is used to ensure end-to-end service quality. The QoS cannot increase the bandwidth, but it
can minimize the delay and jitter in the network by reasonably allocating and monitoring network resources. In this way, the quality of important services is ensured.
The DiffServ (DS) domain consists of a group of network nodes that enable the DiffServ function, that is, DS nodes. In a DS domain, all DS nodes use the same service provision
policy to realize the same per-hop behavior (PHB). The DS nodes are classified into edge DS nodes and internal DS nodes. The edge DS nodes usually perform complex flow
classification on the traffic that enters the DS domain. Traffic of different types is marked with different PHB service types. For internal DS nodes, you need to perform only simple flow
classification based on PHB service type.
The U2000 LCT supports the following QoS functions:

Configure QoS profile.

Configure DiffServ domains.

Configure ATM CoS mapping.

Configure SVLAN DEI used flag.

Configure simple flow classification and complex flow classification.

Configure CAR and Shaping.

Configure the color blindness mode.

Configure the WFQ schedule policy.

To simplify the operation and share some common QoS configuration parameters, the U2000 LCT supports creating QoS function point policy. The function point policies
are as follows: port policy, ATM policy, V-UNI ingress policy, V-UNI egress policy, PW policy and QinQ policy. By using these function point policies, you can bind the CAR
configuration attribute, shaping configuration attribute, flow classification configuration attributes, WFQ schedule policy, WRED policy and color blindness mode attributes.

Configure CoS queue mapping.

Supports the application of the QoS policy to multiple NEs.

MPLS Tunnel Configuration

The MPLS tunnel is the tunnel defined in the MPLS protocol. Independent from the service, the MPLS tunnel realizes end-to-end transmission and carries the PWs related to the
service.
See Figure 1. Unicast MPLS tunnel is mainly used to transparently transmit point-to-point PWE3 services.

MS PW Configuration

By creating multi step (MS)-PW to transmit services, you can save tunnel resources and transmit services over different networks.

PW APS/MC PW APS Configuration

As a network protection mechanism, PW automatic protection switching (APS) is intended to protect the services on the working PW with a protection PW. That is, when the working
PW is faulty, the services on the working PW are switched to the protection PW. In this manner, the services on the working PW are protected.
By using the MC PW APS function, you can implement the PW APS protection among NEs.

You can perform the following PW APS/MC PW APS functions on a per-NE basis:

Create a protection group.

Bind the master and slave protection pairs.

IP Tunnel and GRE Tunnel Configuration

If the equipment at the two ends of an IP network does not support MPLS tunnel, PWE3 services can pass through the IP network by using the IP tunnel or GRE tunnel.
IP tunnel and GRE tunnel mainly applies to the Offload scenarios of mobile communication.
The U2000 LCT supports configuring bidirectional IP tunnels and GRE Tunnels on a per-NE basis.

CES Service Configuration

CES is mainly used for service transparent transmission of TDM trail switching data in the PTN network.
See Figure 2. The 2G/3G stations or Intranet line accesses the PTN equipment by using the E1/ channelized STM-1 line. The equipment divides the E1 signals into pieces,
encapsulates the pieces into the Ethernet, and transmits the E1 signals to the opposite end by using the PW.

The E-Aggr service is a multipoint-to-point Ethernet service. The equipment uses several ports to access services from the V-UNI side, and converges the services into one PW at the
network side for transmission. In this way, user data from multiple points can be converged into one point.
See Figure 5 and Figure 6. One carrier wants to construct a 3G network. Services of each Node B are converged and transported to the RNC. The data between each Node B and RNC
is regarded as one service. At the convergence point, the QoS parameters such as the overall bandwidth are specified.

The E-LAN is a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service. It connects to multiple V-UNI and NNI access points. It realizes packet forwarding and interconnection by using the MAC
address self-learning scheme of layer 2.
See Figure 7. The HQ of Company A is in City 3. Company A has Branch A in City 1, City 2, and City 3, and has Branch B in City 1 and City 2. Branch A and Branch B do not have
business with each other. Hence, the data should be isolated between the two branches. The HQ has requirements of communicating with each branch and accessing the Internet.

Figure 7 E-LAN service

Different VLANs are used to identify service data of different branches by using the E-LAN service. In this way, data is shared within a branch and is isolated from other branches. The

Precautions for Using the U2000 LCT Safely


This topic describes the precautions for using the U2000 LCT safely. Take the following precautions to ensure correct operations:
Starting or Shutting Down the U2000 LCT
The U2000 LCT uses the standard client/server architecture and single user mode. So, you are recommended to start or shut down the U2000 LCT by strictly observing the
following procedure.
Setting the Character Set of an NE
To meet global requirements, the U2000 LCT provides the function of setting or modifying NE character sets to prevent garbled characters caused by language change.
Main Windows and Common Operations of the U2000 LCT
This topic describes the main windows of the U2000 LCT client. Learning about the main windows helps you locate entrances to operations quickly, which increase your
operation efficiency.
How to Obtain Version Information About the U2000 LCT
This topic describes how to obtain version information about the U2000 LCT.
Customizing the Client GUI Effect
You can customize the GUI effect of the U2000 LCT client as required.
Setting the Alert at Network Disconnection
After you set the disconnection alert on the U2000 LCT client, the sound box connected to the client plays the sound if the U2000 LCT client is disconnected from the
server.
Locking the Client
You can lock the client to prevent unauthorized operations.
Unlocking the Client
After a client is locked by the current login user or by the system automatically, only this user or user admin can unlock the client.
GUI Input and Display Conventions
The topic describes the input conventions for the text boxes and display conventions for GUI elements on the U2000 LCT. These rules specify the typing requirements for
the text boxes in the U2000 LCT operation interface. These text boxes are used to enter character strings, file names, IP addresses, MAC addresses, numerals,
passwords, dates, time, and so on.

1.4.1 Precautions for Using the U2000 LCT Safely


This topic describes the precautions for using the U2000 LCT safely. Take the following precautions to ensure correct operations:

Do not modify the system time when the U2000 LCT is running. Set the time before installing the U2000 LCT.

To modify the system time of the server, exit the U2000 LCT server and restart it after the modification.

To modify the system time of the client, exit the U2000 LCT client and restart it after the modification.

Avoid modifying the name and IP address of the U2000 LCT server computer. During installation, you need to change the IP address to 127.0.0.1. Otherwise, the U2000
LCT fails to be started if you modify the system IP address of the server after installation. You can change the IP address as follows: Select the server and click Modify
Server. In the dialog box that is displayed, change the IP address to 127.0.0.1.
On Windows, you must log in to the U2000 LCT server as the user you have chosen during U2000 LCT installation. Do not change the user name of Windows.

The data created on the NE is consistent with that on the U2000 LCT. After an NE is configured and runs properly, ensure data consistency between the NE and the U2000
LCT by means of manual or automatic synchronization.
Synchronize the NE configuration data to the NMS and query the latest NE data before setting the parameters.

When a potentially service-affecting operation is performed, the U2000 LCT asks the user for confirmation. For example, the U2000 LCT displays a message indicating that
services will be interrupted when you download the U2000 LCT data to the NE.

The installation directory of the U2000 LCT must contain only letters, digits and underscores. Otherwise, the U2000 LCT Online Help cannot be used.

If you select a non-English language for an NE when maintaining it, garbled characters are returned after you query information about the NE.
Ensure that no other data communication or transmission process is running on the OS of the U2000 LCT server.
The default passwords for the default U2000 LCT client user, server OS user, and database user are all Changeme_123. To ensure the security of the U2000 LCT, change
the default passwords after the first login and change the non-default passwords regularly. Meanwhile, the passwords must be complex enough. For example, a password
must contain six or more characters of different types. The allowed character types are digits, letters, and special characters.

If the character set that an NE transfers to the U2000 LCT is different from the character set of the internal data (NE source file) on the U2000 LCT, the data transferred to
the U2000 LCT is displayed as garbled characters. The data that the U2000 LCT applies to the NE is also displayed as garbled characters, resulting in failure in reading the
NE. The U2000 LCT provides the function of querying or modifying character sets of NEs to help users manage the NE data.

Parent topic: Getting Started

1.4.3.1 Character Set


This topic describes the GBK, ISO-8859-1, and UTF-8 character sets of the U2000 LCT and the precautions for setting character sets.

If the character set that an NE transfers to the U2000 LCT is different from the character set of the internal data (NE source file) on the U2000 LCT, the data transferred to the U2000
LCT is displayed as garbled characters. The data that the U2000 LCT applies to the NE is also displayed as garbled characters, resulting in failure in reading the NE.

Introduction of Character Set on the U2000 LCT

Character Set Description

GBK Chinese character set which indicates that the NEs support only Chinese
characters.

ISO-8859-1 Latin character set which indicates that the NEs support only western-
Europe characters.

UTF-8 Unicode encoding mode which indicates that the NEs support Chinese,
English, Spanish, Russian, German, Portuguese, Italian, French, and
Arabic characters.

Description of Character Sets on the U2000 LCT

Modifying character sets is not allowed. Character sets are set only when garbled characters are displayed. The setting rules are as follows:

U2000 LCT Language Character Set

Chinese GBK

English ISO-8859-1

Spanish UTF-8

HEEX Startpage Pgina 55 de 90

If the character sets on an NE are changed, the U2000 LCT refreshes the character sets in real time so that the character sets on the U2000 LCT are the same as those of
the NE. At the same time, the U2000 LCT notifies the user that the NE character sets are changed by means of an event.

In the case of a new NE, if the data on the U2000 LCT is displayed as garbled characters or the language changes, you can query and modify the character set attribute of a
single NE or NEs in batches in the NE Character Set Management window.

In the case of an old NE, the character set cannot be modified because an old NE does not have the character set attribute interface. In the NE Character Set
Management window, if the queried NE is an old NE, the related record is dimmed.

NOTE:
Modifying character sets is not a commonly performed operation. Generally, it is not allowed to modify character sets. If there is a definite multi-language requirement and the
character set needs to be changed to UTF-8, convert the original character sets according to the guide for related NEs to ensure that the original data is normally displayed.

Relationship Between Characters and Bytes

Generally, in user manuals, the description of the restrictions on entering characters in text boxes is specific to English characters. For the restrictions on other languages, see the
following table and calculate the occupied bytes of each language.

Language Bytes occupied by a character

Chinese 3

English 1

Spanish 3

Russian 3

German 3

This topic describes the user interface for viewing the current and historical alarms and Alarm Logs. In this user interface, buttons are provided, such as Filter, Synchronize, Refresh,
and Acknowledge, to help you quickly locate the alarm cause.

Context

Current alarm is the display of merged current alarm logs. The rules for merging alarms are as follows:

The alarm logs whose alarm ID, alarm location information, and alarm source are the same, and maintenance status is Maintenance are merged into a current
alarm record.

The alarm logs whose alarm ID, alarm location information, and alarm source are the same, and maintenance status is not Maintenance are merged into a

HEEX Startpage Pgina 63 de 90

For a newly reported alarm log, if the current alarm contains the record that meets the alarm merging rule, the alarm log is merged into the previous record in the current
alarm regardless of the acknowledgment and clearance status of the record. After mergence, the frequency of the record is added by 1. The displayed acknowledgment
and clearance status of the record is subject to that of the latest alarm log. After the alarm log reaches the life cycle (for details, see Setting the Lifecycle of the Current Alarm),
the frequency recorded by the current alarm is reduced by 1.

You can query details of each alarm log in the Browse Alarm Logs window.
Alarm log records all the alarms received by the U2000 LCT. In the alarm log, each alarm is displayed as a record.
Acknowledged and cleared alarms become historical alarms after you set the lifecycle. All non-historical alarms are called current alarms. For details on how to set the
lifecycle, see Setting the Lifecycle of the Current Alarm.

1.5 Service Ports Description


This appendix describes service ports of the U2000 LCT, related precautions, and how to query the service ports.

Background
This section describes the service ports used by management systems.
Notes and Precautions
In the practical communication process, the source (the server) and the sink (the client) use relevant ports. Usually you only need to specify the source port, and the sink
port is dynamically created.
U2000 LCT Service Port Overview
This topic describes the U2000 LCT, service ports to be filtered and the method to query service ports.
Ports Between the U2000 LCT Server and the NEs
This topic describes the ports used between the U2000 LCT server and the NEs.
Ports Between the U2000 LCT Server and the Clients
This topic describes the ports used between the U2000 LCT server and the clients.
How to Query Service Ports
This section describes how to query the service ports.

1.5.1 Background
This section describes the service ports used by management systems.
To ensure the network security, you can take measures on the customer's network. The following are the two cases that affect the network security:

Security filtering settings such as routers or firewalls are configured in the network environment where the NMS runs. When carrying out the project, avoid the service ports
used by the NMS being filtered by those security filtering settings.
Some service ports providing system services are closed to prevent network or virus attacks. Note that the service ports used by the NMS should not be closed, and
otherwise the NMS will not run properly.

Parent topic: Service Ports Description

1.5.2 Notes and Precautions


In the practical communication process, the source (the server) and the sink (the client) use relevant ports. Usually you only need to specify the source port, and the sink port is
dynamically created.
Note the following during the project implementation:

The service ports used by the NMS should not be closed.

1.5.3 U2000 LCT Service Port Overview


This topic describes the U2000 LCT, service ports to be filtered and the method to query service ports.
Overview of U2000 LCT service ports
In the security policy of the firewall, you must filter the traffic according to the IP address and the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port number.
The TCP/UDP port number is used to split a datagram, and transfer the datagram to the proper applications.
The TCP/UDP port range is 0~65535, which is divided into three segments:

0~1023: Identifies some standard services, such as FTP, Telnet, and Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP).
1024~49151: Assigned by Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA) to the registered applications.

32768~65535: Private port numbers, which are dynamically assigned to any applications.

U2000 LCT service ports are classified into the following types:

Ports on the U2000 LCT server for connecting NEs

Ports on NEs for connecting the U2000 LCT server


Ports on the U2000 LCT server for connecting clients

Ports on the U2000 LCT server for connecting the OSS


Ports on the OSS for connecting the U2000 LCT server

Ports on primary and secondary sites of the Veritas HA system

Ports for internal processes of the U2000 LCT server

Ports for remote maintenance

Ports for other connections

Diagram of U2000 LCT service ports


The diagram of U2000 LCT service ports shows the relationships between the U2000 LCT server and peripherals, and the position and direction of firewalls.

Figure 1 Relationship between the U2000 LCT server and peripherals

Method of using the port list generation tool

Usage scenario
As diversified U2000 LCT installation schemes are available, the port list to be opened varies according to components selected for installing the U2000 LCT. The complete
U2000 LCT port list is provided here. You can use the port list customization tool to generate a proper port list for the deployment package. Only mandatory ports need to
be configured for firewalls.
After the U2000 LCT server is installed and deployed, you can run the port list generation tool to generate an accurate port list to determine the ports to be opened for
configuring firewalls.

1.6 Glossary

Alarm hold-off time Alarm delay includes start delay and end delay. An alarm is not regarded
as being generated until the NE has been detecting it for a period of time,
and this period of time is the alarm start hold-off time. An alarm is not
regarded as being cleared until the NE has been detecting the ending of it
for a period of time, and this period of time is the alarm end hold-off time.
Setting the hold-off time can avoid the generation of unnecessary alarms
due to misreport or jitter.

Alarm severity According to ITU-T recommendations, the alarm is classified into four
severities: Critical, Major, Minor, Warning.

Alarm A visible or an audible indication to notify the person concerned that a


failure or an emergency has occurred. See also Event.

Attribute Property of an object.

Binding In virtual concatenated payload configuration, designating one binding


number to identify the VC4s of the same virtual concatenated payload is
called "bind". If a fault occurs to one of the bound services, all bound
services will switch as a whole.

Board View The Board View displays the ports and the paths in different colors
depending on their current status, with legend and description illustrated
aside.

Bound path The VC Trunk refers to the 2 M paths which are bound together to transmit
Ethernet data. The VC Trunk is an entity between the Ethernet port and
the 2 M path.

Configuration data The data that configures the NE hardware for coordination between this
NE and other NEs in the entire network and operation of specified
services. Configuration data is the instruction file of NEs, and it is the key
for efficient network running. The typical configuration data includes board
configuration, clock configuration and protection relationship.

Configure To set the basic parameters of an operation object.

Connection point A reference point where the output of a trail termination source or a
connection is bound to the input of another connection, or where the
output of a connection is bound to the input of a trail termination sink or
another connection. The connection point is characterized by the
information which passes across it. A bidirectional connection point is
formed by the association of a contradirectional pair.

Connection A "transport entity" which consists of an associated pair of "unidirectional


connections" capable of simultaneously transferring information in opposite
directions between their respective inputs and outputs.

Cross-connect slot To perform GE ADM, an OTU board with that function has to be in a cross-
connect slot. Several successive cross-connect slots form a cross-connect
unit group. You can only configure cross-connections within a cross-
connect unit group.

Current alarms Alarms that do not clear, or has cleared but is not acknowledged.

Current performance data The performance data stored in the current register is called current
performance data. The current 15-minute or 24-hour register (only one for
each) is applied to collect the performance data in the current monitoring
period. It changed within the monitor period.

DCC Within an STM-N signal there are two DCC channels, one is the 192 kbit/s
DCC-R channel composed of bytes D1-D3, and the other is the 576 kbit/s
DCC-M channel composed of bytes D4-D12. All NEs can communicate
with one another through the DCC-R. The DCC-M is not the regenerator

section overhead and does not support communications among


regenerators, and it is used to support communication channels of more
universal purpose. For example, it supports TMN as a physical channel of
ECC.

ECC Embedded Control Channel. An ECC provides a logical operations


channel between SDH NEs, utilizing a data communications channel
(DCC) as its physical layer.

Failure The fault cause persisted long enough to consider the ability of an item to
perform a required function to be terminated. The item may be considered
as failed; a fault has now been detected.

Fault A fault is the inability of a function to perform a required action. This does
not include an inability due to preventive maintenance, lack of external
resources, or planned actions.

History alarms Alarms that have cleared and been acknowledged.

History performance data The performance data stored in the history register and the auto-report
performance data stored on the Web LCT are called history performance
data in a unified way.

IP address In the TCP/IP protocol, it is used to uniquely identify the address of the
communication port, which consists of four bytes in decimal digits, for
example, 129.9.161.55.

Label A mark on a cable, a subrack, or a cabinet for identification.

Layer A concept used to allow the transport network functionality to be described


hierarchically as successive levels; each layer being solely concerned with
the generation and transfer of its characteristic information.

LCT Local Craft Terminal. The LCT provides the user with single-layer
management network solutions to the transmission network of up to five
NEs to realize integrated management of multi-service transmission
network. Usually it uses the cross-over cable or serial port cable to
connect one NE, so as to configure and maintain a single NE. See also
Web LCT.

NE Explorer NE Explorer is the main operation interface of the Web LCT. For easy
navigation, the NE Explorer window presents an expandable directory tree
(Function Tree) in the lower left pane. The configuration, management and
maintenance of the equipment are accessed here.

NE Panel NE Panel displays subracks, boards, and ports in different colours


depending on their status. In the Web LCT, most equipment configuration,
monitoring, and maintenance are performed in the NE Panel window.

NE Network Element. NE includes the hardware unit and the software running
on it. Usually, one NE has at least an SCC (system control and
communication) board which responsible for the management and
monitoring of the NE. The NE software runs on the SCC board.

NM Network Management. In the telecommunication network management


architecture, the Web LCT is an element management system that
supports all functions at the element management layer. See also Web
LCT.

Non-revertive In non-revertive switching, there is a working and protection line, board


and so on. Services remain on the protection line or board if the switch
requests are terminated; that is, when the fault that caused them to switch
to the protection line or board is cleared.

Online help An indexed collection of information on all aspects of the Web LCT. They
can be accessed at any time from the Help menu or by pressing the F1
key.

Pane A major separate area of a window or dialog box, usually used for display
rather than data entry.

Path A trail in a path layer.

Performance register Performance register is the memory space for performance event counts,
including 15-min current performance register, 24-hour current
performance register, 15-min history performance register, 24-hour history
performance register, UAT register and CSES register.

Performance threshold Performance events usually have upper and lower thresholds. When the
performance event count value exceeds the upper threshold, a
performance threshold-crossing event is generated; when the performance
event count value is below the upper threshold for a period of time, the
performance threshold-crossing event is ended. In this way, performance
jitter caused by some sudden events can be shielded.

Private line Both communication parties are connected permanently.

Procedure A generic term for an action.

Process A generic term for a collection of actions.

Protection service A specific service that is part of a protection group and is labelled
protection.

Route The IP route selection is in table driving mode. In each host and each
router of the Internet, there is a routing table that contains information
about how the service is transmitted from the source to the sink, providing
a basis for route selection. Ethernet static routing in ET1 refers to the
mapping relationship between the Ethernet port and the bound path. Its
routing type includes port routing and VLAN routing. Port routing: It means
configuring a route between the Ethernet port and the bound path port,
which is usually used for point-to-point networking communication; VLAN
routing: It means configuring a route between the Ethernet port and the
bound path port based on the VLAN service. It can be used flexibly in
point-to-point, point-to-multipoint or multipoint-to-multipoint communication.
The implementation is to divide and converge the data stream according to
the VLAN flag of the packet. As a VLAN flag can be added to the Ethernet
port, the equipment can be applied more flexibly.

Settings Parameters of an operation that can be selected by the user.

Severity See Alarm Severity.

SF Signal Fail. A signal indicating the associated data has failed in the sense
that a near-end defect condition (not being the degraded defect) is active.

Shortcut menu A menu that is displayed when right-clicking an object' s name or icon.
Also called a context menu.

Subnet mask Also referred to as the network mask off code, it is used to define network
segments, so that only the computers in the same network segment can
communicate with one another, thus suppressing broadcast storm
between different network segments.

Subnet number Subnetwork numder is used to differentiate the different network sections
in the sub-network conference. Actually it is the first several digits (one or
two) of the user phone number. An orderwire phone number is composed
of the sub-network number and the user number.

Subnet Sub-network is the logical entity in the transmission network and


comprises a group of network management objects. A sub-network can
contain NEs and other sub-networks. A sub-network planning can better
the organization of a network view.

Support The frame on the bottom of a cabinet, when installing the cabinet on the
antistatic floor.

TMN Telecommunications Management Network. The entity which provides the


means used to transport and process information related to management
functions for the telecommunications network.

Tributary loopback A fault can be located for each service path by performing loopback to
each path of the tributary board. There are three kinds of loopback modes:
No loopback, Outloop and Inloop.

UAT Unavailable Time. A UAT event is reported when the monitored object
generates 10 consecutive severely errored seconds (SES) and the SESs
begin to be included in the unavailable time. The event will end when the

bit error ratio per second is better than 10-3 within 10 consecutive
seconds.

VC4 loopback The fault of each VC4 path on the optical fiber can be located by setting
loopback for each VC4 path of the line. There are three kinds of loopback
modes: No loopback, Outloop, Inloop.

VLAN ID Namely, it is the virtual LAN identifier. One Ethernet port can support 4K
VLAN routes, and one NE can support up to 8K VLAN routes.

Wavelength protection group The wavelength protection group is important to describe the wavelength
protection structure. Its function is similar to that of the protection sub-
network in the SDH NE. The wavelength path protection can only work
with the correct configuration of the wavelength protection group.

WDM cross-connection Internal GE cross-connections for OTU boards with GE ADM function, the
source and sink of which are optical ports at the WDM side and the client
side. The level for WDM cross-connection is channel.

WDM service The WDM service is accessed at the client side of the OTU board that can
access SAN services.

Web LCT It is an element level management system for the optical transmission
network. It can manage RTN and NG WDM serial optical transmission
equipment. See also LCT.

Working path A specific path that is part of a protection group and is labelled working.

Working service A specific service that is part of a protection group and is labelled working.

WTR time A period of time that must elapse before a - from a fault recovered -
trail/connection can be used again to transport the normal traffic signal
and/or to select the normal traffic signal from.

WTR Wait to Restore. This command is issued when working channels meet the
restoral threshold after an SD or SF condition. It is used to maintain the
state during the WTR period unless it is pre-empted by a higher priority
bridge request.
