Voice and signaling data are sent and received over DS-30X loops and maintenance data is sent over a separate asynchronous communications link called the card LAN link. Signaling data is information directly related to the operation of the telephone line. Signaling commands include, but are not limited to: off hook/on hook ringing signal on/off message waiting lamp on/off Maintenance data is data relating to the setup and operation of the IPE card, and is carried on the card LAN link. Maintenance data includes, but is not limited to: polling reporting of self-test status CPU initiated card reset reporting of card ID (card type and hardware vintage) reporting of firmware version downloading trunk interface unit configuration reporting of trunk interface unit configuration enabling/disabling of the DS-30X network loop bus reporting of card status Trunk cards Page 18 of 140 DS-30X loops The interfaces provided by the line and trunk cards connect to conventional 2-wire (tip and ring) line facilities. IPE analog line and trunk cards convert the incoming analog voice and signaling information to digital form and route it to the Meridian 1 common equipment (CE) CPU over DS-30X network loops. Conversely, digital voice and signaling information from the CPU is sent over DS-30X network loops to the analog line and trunk cards where it is converted to analog form and applied to the line or trunk facility. IPE digital line cards receive the data from the digital phone terminal as 512 khz time compressed multiplexed (TCM) data. The digital line card converts that data to a format compatible with the DS-30X loop, and transmits it in the next available timeslot. When a word is received from the DS-30X loop, the digital line card converts it to the TCM format and transmits it to the digital phone terminal over the digital line facility. A separate dedicated DS-30X network loop is extended between each IPE line/trunk card and the controller cards within an IPE module (or the controller circuits on a network/dtr card in a CE/PE module). A DS-30X network loop is composed of two synchronous serial data buses. One bus transports in the transmit (Tx) direction toward the line facility and the other in the receive (Rx) direction toward the Meridian 1 common equipment. Each bus has 32 channels for pulse code modulated (PCM) voice data. Each channel consists of a 10-bit word (see Figure 4). Eight of the 10 bits are for PCM data, one bit is the call signaling bit, and the last bit is a data valid bit. The 8-bit PCM portion of a channel is called a timeslot. The DS-30X loop is clocked at 2.56 Mbps (one-half the 5.12 MHz clock frequency supplied by the controller card). Thus, the timeslot repetition rate for a single channel is 8 khz. The controller card also supplies a locally generated 1 khz frame sync signal for channel synchronization. Signaling data is transmitted to and from the line cards using the call signaling bit within the 10-bit channel. When the line card detects a condition that the Meridian 1 switch needs to know about, it creates a 24-bit signaling word. This word is shifted out on the signaling bit for the associated channel one bit at a time during 24 successive DS-30X frames. Conversely, when the Meridian 1 switch sends signaling data to the line card, it is sent as a 24-bit word divided among 24 successive DS-30X frames Standard 6.00 April 2000 Page 19 of 140 Figure 4 DS-30X loop data format DS-30X loop data words Frame sync MHz 2.56 MHz Frame sync DS-30X loop data bits W31DV W0B7 W0B6 W0B5 W0B4 W0B3 W0B2 W0B1 W0B0 W0SB W0DV W1B7 SB = SIGNALING BIT DV = DATA VALID DS-30Y network loops extend between controller cards and superloop network cards in the common equipment, and function in a manner similar to DS-30X loops (see Figure 2). Essentially, a DS-30Y loop carries the PCM timeslot traffic of a DS-30X loop. Four DS-30Y network loops form a superloop with a capacity of 128 channels (120 usable timeslots). See System Engineering ( ) for more information on superloops. Card LAN link Maintenance communications is the exchange of control and status data between IPE line or trunk cards and the CE CPU by way of the NT8D01 Controller Card. Maintenance data is transported via the card LAN link. This link is composed of two asynchronous serial buses (called the Async card LAN link in Figure 3). The output bus is used by the Meridian 1 controller for output of control data to the trunk card. The input bus is used by the Meridian 1 controller for input of trunk card status data. Trunk cards Page 20 of 140 A card LAN link bus is common to all of the line/trunk card slots within an IPE module (or IPE section of a CE/PE module). This bus is arranged in a master/slave configuration where the controller card is the master and all other cards are slaves. The module backplane provides each line/trunk card slot with a unique hardwired slot address. This slot address enables a slave card to respond when addressed by the controller card. The controller card communicates with only one slave at a time. In normal operation, the controller card continually scans (polls) all of the slave cards connected to the card LAN to monitor their presence and operational status. The slave card sends replies to the controller on the input bus along with its card slot address for identification. In this reply, the slave informs the controller if any change in card status has taken place. The controller can then prompt the slave for specific information. Slaves only respond when prompted by the controller; they do not initiate exchange of control or status data on their own. When an IPE line or trunk card is first plugged into the backplane, it runs a self-test. When the self test is completed, a properly functioning card responds to the next controller card poll with the self-test status. The controller then queries for card identification and other status information. The controller then downloads all applicable configuration data to the line/trunk card, initializes it, and puts it into an operational mode. The network card regularly polls the PE cards during TS0 to see if any of them has a message to be sent. When a PE card has a message waiting it responds to the poll by sending a series of 1s during the next five successive timeslot 0s. The network card responds by sending a message send enable message (all 1s). The PE card replies by sending 1, 1, 1, 0, and then the message in successive timeslot 0s. Trunk interface unit Once the 8-bit digital voice signal has been received by the trunk card, it must be converted back into an analog signal, filtered, and driven onto the analog trunk line through an impedance matching and balance network. The trunk interface also includes the logic necessary to place outgoing call signaling onto the trunk, or the logic to connect to special services such as recorded announcement and paging equipment. Figure 5 shows a typical example of the logic that performs these functions. Each part of the trunk interface unit is discussed in the following section Standard 6.00 April 2000 Page 21 of 140 Figure 5 Typical trunk interface unit block diagram DS-30X or SL-1 Network loop CODEC Variable gain filters 2-wire to 4-wire conversion and balance network Isolation transformer Interface (protection) Tip Ring TS0 Signaling logic Signaling leads (E&M, DX, etc.) Coder/Decoder circuit The Coder/Decoder (codec) performs analog to digital (A/D) and digital to analog (D/A) conversion of the line analog voiceband signal to and from a digital PCM signal. This signal can be coded and decoded using either the A-Law or the µ-law companding algorithm. On some trunk cards the decoding algorithm depends of the type of codec installed when the board is built. On others, it is an option selected using a software overlay. Trunk cards Page 22 of 140 Variable gain filters Audio signals received from the analog phone trunk are passed through a low-pass analog to digital (A/D) monolithic filter that limits the frequency spread of the input signal to a nominal Hz bandwidth. The audio signal is then applied to the input of the codec. Audio signals coming from the codec are passed through a low-pass A/D monolithic filter that integrates the amplitude modulated pulses coming from the codec, and then filters and amplifies the result. On some of the trunk cards, the gain of these filters can be programmed by the system controller. This allows the system to make up for line
