Configuring T1 and E1 Port Parameters for CTP Bundles (CTPView)
This topic describes how to configure port parameters for T1/E1 interfaces.
Before you begin:
Log in to the CTPView software at least at the Net_Admin level.
Connect the CTPView server to the CTP device for which you want to configure bundles.
To configure T1 and E1 port parameters for CTP bundles using CTPView:
- In the side pane, select Bundle > Configuration.
- Run your mouse over the Display and Select an Existing Bundle bar.
- In the table of bundles, select the bundle that you want to modify.
- Under Port Options, configure
the parameters as described in Table 1.
The options vary depending on whether the bundle is T1 or E1 and whether fractional T1 or E1 is configured.
- Click Click to Submit Bundle AND Port Changes.
Table 1: CTP Bundle T1 and E1 Port Parameter Settings in CTPView
Specifies a description for the port.
Enter a description of up to 64 alphanumeric characters. Do not use the following characters:
( ; ' " ) ]
Specifies the daughter card as the interface type.
Specifies the type of interface.
Specifies whether the card is fractional.
T1 Line Coding
For T1 interfaces, specifies the T1 encoding method used on this bundle.
For fractional T1, ESF is the only option supported.
With ESF framing, the frame synchronization, data link, and CRC framing bits are passed across the IP network untouched.
Fractional Frame Transport
For fractional T1, enable or disable fractional frame transport.
E1 Connector Type
For E1 interfaces, configure the termination to work with either coaxial or RJ-48.
Number of Channels
Specifies the number of fractional T1 or E1 channels to transport.
For T1, select a number from 1 through 24.
For E1, select a number from 1 through 31.
Specifies the signaling method used for fractional E1.
Specifies the type of clocking for the port. The default value for Clock Cfg is CTP is Loop Timed.
