Dual PRI Installation
(Large System)

NT5D97 - Dual PRI Card

The following applies to EUROPEAN EURO-ISDN PRI's.
For Small Systems (option 11), see PRI programming.
Universal Digital Trunk (UDT) card, see UDT E1 PRI Example.

Hardware:

Always use the ENB/DIS switch when inserting/removing cards.

Cables:

External connectors:

DDCHRed/GrnNTBK51 status: Red/Grn, ENB/DIS. Off: not fitted.

Dip Switch Settings:

MSDL Settings: Choose a Port, all DCE to ON, all DTE to OFF (Use 422-A DCE)

DDP2 Settings: If using a Dual D-Channel daughter Board (NTBK51), you must set the MSDL device address.

Trunk 0: S12_1- OFF-120 ohms (ON-75 ohms is used if using coax cable)
S12_2- Spare
S12_3- Spare
S12_4- ON for PRI2/Off for DTI2
 
Trunk 1: S7_1- OFF-120 ohms (ON-75 ohms is used if using coax cable)
S7_2- Spare
S7_3- Spare
S7_4- ON for PRI2/Off for DTI2

Refer to the Circuit Card Reference NTP for full details.

Trunk Pinouts:

DB-9 (E1) (NT8D7217E6)DB-15 (T1)CSU/DSU * (RJ48/RJ45) (T-568B)
2 - Black/Transmit1 - White/Transmit1 - Transmit (R1)
3 - Red/Transmit9 - Black/Transmit (could be 8)2 - Transmit (T1)
6 - Black/Receive3 - Red/Receive4 - Receive (R)
7 - White/Receive11 - Black/Receive (could be Yellow)5 - Receive (T)

* DSU/CSU = Data Service Unit/Channel Service Unit, eg, the PTT modem.

Pinning a RJ45 to DB-9F Adapter:

Use the following adapter configuration with an E1, DB-9 end on the PBX (to NTCK45AA on J5).
You may need to reverse the TX / RX pairs - or swap orange & blue with T-568B (568A or 568B).

Note: Most RJ45 to DB-9F Adapters use this colour
scheme, but yours may not! Always check it first!

Loopback Adaptors:

RJ-48 Loopback

Note: An RJ45 connector will fit an RJ48 jack, but the key on an
RJ48 connector will prevent it from plugging into an RJ45 jack.

Remember, the D channel will not establish on a loop test.

Software:

Step 1. CEQU

LD 17

REQ CHG
TYPE CEQU
PRI2  (New PRI Loop number)

Step 2. Build D- Channel

LD 17

REQ: CHG
TYPE: ADAN
ADAN: NEW DCH X
CTYP: MSDL
DNUM: X (0-15) (DNUM is the physical MSDL card address)
PORT: X (0-3)  (physical PORT on MSDL card)
DES:
USR: PRI
IFC: EURO (try EURO first- APAC may work in Asia)
DCHL: X   (PRI Loop Number)
DRAT:
SIDE: USR (If setting up TIE, one side is USR the other is NET)
RLS: 25   (If not connecting to a Nortel CO switch-enter through)
RCAP: MSL?

Step 3. Build Route

LD 16

CUST 0
ROUT X
DES: PRI1
TKTP: DID
RCLS EXT
VTRK NO
DTRK YES
DGTP PRI2

IDC (YES - only if using Incoming Digit Conversion)
CDR YES

LAST YES
OAL YES
AIA YES
MUS YES
MRT 21

Step 4. Build Trunks

LD 14

REQ: NEW 30 (build all 30 channels at once)
TYPE: DID
TN X 1 (LOOP AND CHANNEL)
DES (eg: PRI1)
CUST 0
TRK PRI2
PCML A (Note: A = overseas / MU = the US)
NCOS
RTMB X 1 (Route number and first member)
CLS DTN

Step 5. LPTI (Loop Timers)

Set CRC on/off. If you get Frame-slip errors, try changing this.

LD 73

REQ: NEW
TYPE PRI2
FEAT LPTI
LOOP L  (Loop)
MFF CRC (CRC or sometimes AFF)

Step 6. SYTI (Clocking)

LD 73

REQ: NEW
TYPE PRI2
FEAT SYTI
CCO
PREF L (Loop for CC0 primary clock reference)
SREF L (Loop for CC0 secondary clock reference)
CC1
PREF L (Loop for CC1 primary clock reference)
SREF L (Loop for CC1 secondary clock reference)

Step 7. CLID

(NET_DATA)

LD 15

REQ: CHG
TYPE NET (NET_DATA)
CUST 0
ISDN YES
ENTRY 0
HLCL (Digits to be inserted before DN on CLID)
DIDN (Set to No so DN is not sent out/ Set to Yes so DN is sent out)

Note: LDN0 must be defined (LD 15) for ISDN PRI DID service. The length of LDN0 determines the number of trailing digits translated as the dialed DN on PRI DID routes.

Step 8. Clock Tracking

LD 60

.TRCK (PCK = Primary clock / SCLK = Secondary clock / FRUN = Freerun)

Step 9. PRI Startup

The MSDL / DCH will need a forced download (FDL) the first time its brought into service.
