Small System 5.5 Upgrade

Slots:

The SSC and Fibre receivers are replaced with MGC cards in slot 0.
Call Processor (CP) and Signaling Server (SS) cards can go in any slot as they only draw power from the back-plane. It might be convenient to free slots 1 and 2 for them. You can use any cabinet for the CP and SS leader, and a different cabinet for the SS follower.

After this upgrade, there are no more "Expansion Cabinets". TN's will change from small system format: Card-Unit (CU), to large system format: Loop-Shelf-Card-Unit (LSCU). For example:

CabinetSlotsLoop/Shelf
Main cabinet (SSC)0-100 - 0
Expansion cabinet 111-190 - 1
Expansion cabinet 220-294 - 0
Expansion cabinet 330-394 - 1

If this is an upgrade, you will need a LD 43: EDD/BKO backup on a compact flash from the old SSC card. The installer will auto-magically convert the TN's to the new format. Note: the old SSC may not support CF cards larger than 64Meg.

Before you start, check existing hardware vintages are compatibile with the upgrade.
If this is an upgrade, you will lose Meridian Mail (no legacy AML support), so hope they have CallPilot, or you will be installing one of those too. Try to establish this ahead of time to allow for extra time if necessary. CallPilot Agents may require an MGATE card.

Prepare the cards:

Usually, you'll use 3 CPPM cards (plus spares):
Designate one a the Call Server, and two as Signaling Servers: a leader and a follower.

Each cabinet needs an MGC card in card slot 0, and each MGC card requires DSP daughter board(s) - which come in three flavors: 32, 96, and 128 port.

Give some thought to traffic levels and trunking. Spread the Digital trunk cards around if necessary. A 32 port DSP is probably OK for low capacity shelves, but shelves with high capacity cards (E1, T1, CallPilot MGATE) will require 96 ports or more, if available.

Cabling:

Prepare the network cables, but DO NOT connect them at this stage. Shown right is green for ELAN, yellow for TLAN. Color coding is prudent, don't mix up E and TLAN connections!

An Ethernet switch (Baystack) must have already been provisioned with two VLAN's: one each for E and TLAN - if not, do this now. All network connections are made to the switch.

Cards, cabinets and MGC's are generally hooked up AFTER they've been loaded and configured. The exception is loading a SS-Follower which requires access to the Leader.

Note: IF this is an upgrade, the CPPM card(s) can be put into ANY SLOT (with no ELAN or TLAN connections) to load the software - and then moved later. The card only draws power from the back plane and will not affect a running system. Pre-loading the cards in this way will significantly reduce down-time at cut-over. MGC cards can ONLY go in Slot 0.

Load firmware in the Call Server:

You must load the firmware from the front panel flash card slot. The CF card to insert in the front is the Communications Server 1000. NTM443CA. This firmware says release 5.00W I-29 P-104. We will boot from this CF card, and load/run the Install Tool.

Use a 2x 25way-D to Amphenol TTY communications cable. Attach the 50 pin Amphenol end to the appropriate backplane slot connector, the other to a PC serial port. Open a terminal session (PuTTY, Serial, etc.) with the usual 9600 8N1 settings.

Power on the shelf and/or seat the CPPM card.
Watch the terminal window as the card boots up.

You will see some text go by that includes an indication to use control C to enter setup. ignore this, and wait for:

NOTE: A new Compact Flash card will always fail the partition tests. This is normal as the drive needs to be partitioned and formated before the install process can continue. When you see the "Unable to validate parition" messages, simply hit <CR> to continue. The Install Tool will then prompt to partition and format the CF. Accept the default options, and continue.
When complete, re-boot from the faceplate and start the install process again. This time it should pass the patition tests...

>Rebooting system ...

This completes the Call Processor software install. Easy!

If the card is not in its final deployment slot (ie, if you're pre-loading for an upgrade), you can safely remove it and insert the Signalling Server (which uses the same TTY cable) for loading.

Now continue to install the operating system software on the Signalling Server card(s).

Load firmware in the Signaling Server:

Follow pretty much the same steps as you did for the Call Server.
The hard drive may be pre installed from Avaya, and it will boot straight into the MAIN MEUN.
In this case obviously an install flash card is NOT supplied or required.

Check the superloops

Remove the conference loop 0 0 if the loop and shelf configuration started out as Loop 0 shelf 0.

Configure the Voice Gateways

Use Element Manager to configure the voice gateways.
This is a bit burried uder the element manager screens. Peel back three layers and you will be there. IP network / media gateway / select the underlined loop.

Click NEXT

Go to the very bottom and click VGW Channels

Click ADD - Remember to come back and do all the loops.

  Add VGW channels 
  Retrieving VGW Channels information... 
  
Number of VGW Channels:  96 
Trunk data block:   VGW
Terminal Number:    <default>  000 0 11 0 

The 32 channel cards are going to start at L S 0 0. This is slot 0.
The 96 version has three slots: Slot 11, 12, and 13. So the 96 DSP add on card has three sets of 32 slots.
96 Channel DSP card Superloop numbers are going to be: L S 11: 0 - 31, L S 12: 0 - 31, & L S 13: 0 - 31

Designator field for trunk: whatever
Extended Trunk: DSP DB 32 (DB32) or DSP DB 96 (DB96)

Adding a card.

It is useful to id the card to make sure you have the correct loop number.
Example: ID the card

>ld 20

REQ: idc 0 0 7

 => NT8D09AK  08 NNTM1831DUG7 0000  

ID the unit (phone) when trouble shooting individual phones. Someone may have moved a phone and replaced with a different model phone without notifying telephone support.

This example returns results from an IP phone.

The IP phone will not ring to an analog phone untill you set up the voice gateway.

You also must configure the DDB in ld 73.

The alarm will be this Error: Configuration cannot be saved. 1.5 Mb/s DTI/PRI pad category table does not exist. Create a pad category table using LD 73.

TRSH You will need this value. We selected the number 1. Make sure to put in a TRSH value from 0 to 15 to get the DDB to actually install. Enter this TRSH value in ld 17 when defining a DTI/PRI loop. ICS
