E1 Controller problem

I have a E1 controller that keeps bouncing.

I suspect a clocking issue or even a hardware problem, but I'm new to WAN support, so I'm looking for some direction to take fault finding.

1-1#sh controllers e1 2/0 br

E1 2/0 is up.

No alarms detected.

alarm-trigger is not set

Version info Firmware: 20050620, FPGA: 15, spm_count = 0

Framing is UNFRAMED, Line Code is HDB3, Clock Source is Line.

CRC Threshold is 320. Reported from firmware is 320.

Current port master clock: recovered from E1 2/0

Data in current interval (683 seconds elapsed):

0 Line Code Violations, 0 Path Code Violations

0 Slip Secs, 0 Fr Loss Secs, 0 Line Err Secs, 0 Degraded Mins

Total Data (last 24 hours)

39 Line Code Violations, 0 Path Code Violations,

58 Slip Secs, 0 Fr Loss Secs, 0 Line Err Secs, 0 Degraded Mins,

58 Errored Secs, 0 Bursty Err Secs, 0 Severely Err Secs, 280 Unavail Secs

Re: E1 Controller problem

It looks to me that your problem is at the controller level:

1) Double-check the line coding

I'm not sure if you have this command, but try "sh service-module serial 2/0:0 performance-statistics 1 - 4" and look for "Line Code violations" and "Path Code Violations".

Those parameters might give you and idea of problems with the encoding or the line itself.

Also, you may find some additional information at:

Re: E1 Controller problem

Hi William,

first of all this is E1 and no T1, then there in "service module commands" for E1 hardware.

Please specify which router and E1 hardware is this, together with the controller config you have currently.

Re: E1 Controller problem

Hello,

not sure why the low rating to my previous post simply asking for a bit more information.

Considering the attitude is not of fair appreciation to contributions made in good will, I wish you good luck with the issue.

Community Member

Re: E1 Controller problem

I'm extremely sorry paolo, the rating result was a finger slip problem (did not mean to offend), no problem with your response.

But that said, if you are upset over the rating, I'm sorry.

That's life, I'll move on.

Re: E1 Controller problem

Hi, too bad the 'rating' cannot be corrected for mistakes. I take fairness into great consideration, that's all.

Now for the problem, your microwave circuit appears errored. From you side you should:

- check with the circuit provider if you are supposed to provide clock, on one side. If so, configure 'clock internal' under controller E1, unless already configured on the other end.

second, your 3660 might be equipped with a MIX module. If so, heck that you have configured network-clock-participate slot X

network-clock-select E1 X/Y 1 (or other appropraote value).

Failure to get results from the two items above means the circuit is faulty and must be reported as so to the provider.

Re: E1 Controller problem

Thanks,

The current config at both ends is the same (line), I'm new to routers, but I was thinking that one end should at least be internal. (But like you said, depending on what the link should be expecting)

Waiting to hear from microwave system vendors. Will post an update.

Again, your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Community Member

Re: E1 Controller problem

Confirmed with the Vendor, clocking should at least be internal on one end, line the other.

It now appears we have a Degraded Radio Path.

Thanks very much for your assistance.
