  1. From the CTP Main Menu, select 1) Bundle Operations.
  2. Select 1) CTP.
  3. Select a bundle from the list.

    If you select an active bundle, you are prompted to disable the bundle before configuring it.

  4. Select 3) Port Config.
  5. Select 2) Interface.
  6. Select 1) Type, and set the type to Optional Interface: MultiSvc.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions and configure the options as described in Table 33.

Table 33: CTP Bundle Multiservice Audio Mode Port Parameter Settings in the CTP Menu

FieldFunctionYour Action

Mode

Specifies that the bundle will run in audio mode.

Select AUDIO.

Master/Slave

Specifies whether this end of the circuit provides clocking or uses adaptive clocking.

If the CTP devices at both ends of the circuit are synchronized, you can configure both ends as Master.

Select one:

  • Master—This end of the circuit provides clocking.
  • Slave—This end of the circuit uses adaptive clocking.

Dual Channel

Two channels are supported—channel 0 and channel 1.

Enables or disables the use of both channels.

Select one:

  • Disable—Channel 0 is the only active channel.
  • Enable—Both channel 0 and channel 1 are active.

Audio Sample Rate

Specifies the sample rate for audio circuits in kilohertz. The sample rate determines the audio quality and the network bandwidth needed. Higher sample rates create an IP data flow that requires higher bandwidth.

8 KHz corresponds to standard toll quality voice.

48 KHz corresponds to CD quality audio.

Select one:

  • 8
  • 12
  • 16
  • 24
  • 32
  • 48

μ-law Encoding:

Enables or disables μ-law encoding. Standard audio code samples are 16 bits. If you enable μ-law encoding, the 16-bit samples are converted to 8 bits, consuming half of the bandwidth without significant audio degradation.

Select one:

  • Disable—Generates 16-bit audio samples.
  • Enable—Generates 8-bit audio samples.

Talk Squelch

Enables or disables the active squelch function on the circuit.

If enabled, specifies whether the squelch is active or inactive.

The squelch function gates local audio output when DSR-A (channel 0) or RTS-A (channel 1) inputs are active or inactive.

Select one:

  • Disable—Disables the active squelch function on the circuit (audio output is always enabled).
  • Enable and active—Squelch input is grounded and analog output is disabled.
  • Enable and inactive—No signal is applied to the squelch input. Input is open and analog output is possible.

Ch 0 Output Level: 1.00x (decimal 128)

Specifies the output level for channel 0.

Note the following information about the values:

  • 0—There is no output.
  • 128—Unity gain, which means there is no attenuation or gain.
  • 255—Gain is 2:1.

Enter a number from 0 through 255.

Ch 1 Output Level: 1.00x (decimal 128)

Specifies the output level for channel 1.

Note the following information about the values:

  • 0—There is no output.
  • 128—Unity gain, which means there is no attenuation or gain.
  • 255—Gain is 2:1.

Enter a number from 0 through 255.

Configuring Multiservice IRIG-B Mode Port Parameters for CTP Bundles (CTP Menu)

Before you begin:

  • Disable the bundle before you modify the bundle options.

To configure Multiservice IRIG-B mode port parameters using the CTP Menu:

  1. From the CTP Main Menu, select 1) Bundle Operations.
  2. Select 1) CTP.
  3. Select a bundle from the list.

    If you select an active bundle, you are prompted to disable the bundle before configuring it.

  4. Select 3) Port Config.
  5. Select 2) Interface.
  6. Select 1) Type and set the type to Optional Interface: MultiSvc.
  7. Follow the onscreen instructions and configure the options as described in Table 34.

Table 34: CTP Bundle Multiservice IRIG-B Port Parameter Settings in the CTP Menu

FieldFunctionYour Action

Mode

Specifies that the bundle will run in IRIG-B mode.

Select IRIG.

Src/Dest

Specifies the direction of the circuit. Although the IP circuit connection through the network is full duplex, an IRIG-B circuit is a simplex application, and the interface can operate only in Rx or Tx mode and not both at the same time.

(Although the bundle is by default a full duplex IP connection, you can configure it for simplex to save network bandwidth.)

Specify yes or no to the question: Is this an IRIG-B source end (IRIG-B signal enters CTP)?

  • Yes (y)—Sets direction to Rx. This end of the circuit recovers IRIG-B from the attached cable and generates IP packets toward the network.
  • No (n)—Sets the direction to Tx. This end of the circuit accepts IP packets, extracts the IRIG-B data codes, and transmits IRIG-B signaling output onto the cable.

IRIG Rate

Specifies the data rate on the IP connection.

Note the following about setting the IRIG rate:

  • Unless network bandwidth is at a premium, we do not recommend that you change this value from the default of 16,000 bps.
  • Although the IRIG information can be transported through the network at the minimum configured rate (1000 bps), a CTP bundle running at this rate is subject to high latency.

Enter a number from 1000 through 25,500 bps. The port speed must be a multiple of 100 bps.

Output High Level

This setting applies only if you set the direction of the port to Tx.

Specifies the high output level, which is measured in peak-to-peak voltage. This setting is based on a 50-ohm termination.

Enter a number from 0.00 through 7.85 volts peak-to-peak.

Output Low Level

This setting applies only if you set the direction of the port to Tx.

Specifies the low output level, which is measured in peak-to-peak voltage. This setting is based on a 50-ohm termination.

Enter a number from 0.00 through 7.85 volts peak-to-peak.

NRZ/Rate

Specifies the data rate on the IP connection.

Enter a number from 500 through 5,000,000 bps. The port speed must be a multiple of 500 bps.
