ATM Terms and Acronyms ATM Terms and Acronyms The following are common ATM terms and acronyms for your reference: AAL—ATM Adaptation Layer. An AAL deﬁnes the conversion of user information into cells. AAL1 and AAL2 handle isochronous trafﬁc, such as voice and video; AAL3/4 and AAL5 pertain to data communications through the segmentation and reassembly of packets.
An AAL deﬁnes the conversion of user information into cells. The AAL segments upper-layer information into cells at the transmitter and reassembles them at the receiver. AAL3/4 and AAL5 support data communications. AAL3/4 is supported as of Cisco IOS Release 10.2 and later. 4 Asynchronous Transfer Mode Interface Processor (AIP) Installation and Conﬁguration...
ATM Interface Processor (AIP) U111, microcode ROM The AIP provides a direct connection between the high-speed Cisco Extended Bus (CxBus and CyBus) and external ATM networks. A physical layer interface module (PLIM) on the AIP determines the type of ATM connection. There are no restrictions on slot locations or sequence; you can install an AIP in any available interface processor slot.
AIP Interface Types • Both AAL5 and AAL3/4. AAL3/4 is supported as of Cisco IOS Release 10.2 and later. Note • Exception queue, which is used for event reporting. Events such as CRC errors are reported to the exception queue.
Software Requirements The AIP is compatible with any Cisco 7000 series router that is operating with the following system software: Cisco IOS Release 10.0 or later. To ensure correct operation of the E3, DS3, and TAXI AIPs, Hardware Revision 1.3 (shipped from March 1995), the following minimum Cisco IOS release levels are required: 10.0(9), 10.2(5),...
AIP Installation Prerequisites Hardware Requirements To ensure correct operation of the E3, DS3, and TAXI AIPs, Hardware Revision 1.3 (shipped from March 1995), the following minimum Cisco IOS release levels are required: 10.0(9), 10.2(5), 10.3(1), or later. Caution To ensure compliance with EMI standards, the E3 PLIM connection requires an EMI ﬁlter clip (CLIP-E3-EMI) on the receive port (RCVR).
AIP Installation Prerequisites Attenuation is signiﬁcantly lower for optical ﬁber than for other media. For multimode transmission, chromatic and modal dispersion reduce the available power of the system by the combined dispersion penalty (dB). The power lost over the data link is the sum of the component, dispersion, and modal losses.

AIP Installation Prerequisites Figure 6 Cisco 7513 Interface Processor Slots Blower module Cable-management bracket Card cage and processor modules Interface processor slots 9 10 11 12 Guidelines for Interface Processor Removal and Installation This section describes the mechanical functions of system components and emphasizes the importance of following correct procedures to avoid unnecessary board failures.
Interface Processor Replacement Procedures Typically, your interface processors arrive preinstalled in your Cisco 7000 series and Cisco 7500 series routers (with the exception of the Cisco 7513); however, occasionally you might have to remove and replace interface processors for maintenance.
Interface Processor Replacement Procedures If you install or remove other interface processors in a Cisco 7000 series or Cisco 7500 series Note router with a CT3IP installed, you might have to reboot the system after the removal and replacement of that interface processor. (In general, and to prevent system problems, we recommend you follow the procedures described in this section and the guidelines described in the preceding section “Guidelines for Interface Processor Removal and Installation.”)
Cisco 7507 and Cisco 7513, we recommend that you install interface processors starting with the slots closest to the RSPs and work out concentrically from there. This will help prevent electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Interface Processor Replacement Procedures Interface processors and interface processor ﬁllers are secured with two captive Step 3 installation screws. (See Figure 8a.) Use a ﬂat-blade screwdriver to loosen the captive installation screws and remove the interface processor ﬁller (or the existing interface processor) from the slot.
ATM Interface Cables Place the back of the interface processor in the slot and align the notch on the bottom of Step 5 the carrier with the groove in the slot. (See Figure 8a.) While keeping the interface processor parallel to the backplane, carefully slide the Step 6 interface processor into the slot until the back of the faceplate makes contact with the ejector levers, then stop.
ATM Interface Cables Following are descriptions of the network interface cables used with the AIP. • For TAXI 4B/5B trafﬁc over multimode ﬁber, use the multimode MIC interface cable to connect the AIP with the external ATM switch. (See Figure 9.) Figure 9 Multimode Network Interface Connector (MIC Type) •...
Note To ensure correct operation of the TAXI, E3, and DS3 AIPs, Hardware Revision 1.3 (shipped from March 1995), the following minimum Cisco IOS release levels are required: Release 10.0(9), 10.2(5), 10.3(1) or later. Asynchronous Transfer Mode Interface Processor (AIP) Installation and Configuration...
ATM Interface Cables • For multimode SONET connections, connect the multimode cable to the SC connector on the PLIM. (See Figure 15.) Figure 15 SONET Multimode SC Duplex PLIM The SONET multimode SC-duplex connector is shipped with a dust plug. (See Figure 16.) Remove it by pulling on the plug as you squeeze its sides.
PLIM connectors, as shown in Figure 18. To ensure correct operation of the E3, DS3, and TAXI AIPs, Hardware Revision 1.3 (shipped from March 1995), the following minimum Cisco IOS release levels are required: 10.0(9), 10.2(5), 10.3(1), or later.
ATM Interface Cables Attaching Network Interface Cables to the AIP All AIP interfaces are full duplex. You must use the appropriate ATM interface cable to connect the AIP to an external ATM network. The AIP provides an interface to an ATM switching fabric for transmitting and receiving data at up to 155 megabits per second (Mbps) bidirectionally.
ATM Interface Cables Use the following procedure to install a CAB-ATM-DS3/E3 cable and EMI ﬁlter clip: Attach the CAB-ATM-DS3/E3 cable to the transmit (XMTR) and receive (RCVR) ports Step 1 on the E3 PLIM, as shown in Figure 21A. One portion of the cable has a white insulator on both ends to ensure that the receive-to-transmit and transmit-to-receive relationship is maintained between the E3 PLIM and your ATM switch.
Using LEDs to Check AIP Status Figure 21 Attaching CAB-ATM-DS3/E3 and EMI Filter Clip to E3 or DS3 PLIMs White insulator White insulator To RX of switch To TX of switch EMI filter clip Using LEDs to Check AIP Status Each AIP model has three status LEDs on its faceplate.
Using LEDs to Check AIP Status AIP LEDs function as follows: • Enabled—When on, this LED indicates that the AIP is enabled for operation; however, the interface ports might not be functional or enabled. • RX cells —When on, indicates that the AIP has received an ATM cell. This LED will ﬂicker in normal operation, indicating trafﬁc.
Conﬁguring the AIP Use the show interfaces or show controllers cbus command to verify the status of the Step 5 ATM interface. (If the ATM interface is not conﬁgured, you must use the procedures in the section “Conﬁguring the AIP” to conﬁgure the interface.) If an error message displays on the console terminal, refer to the appropriate reference publication for error message deﬁnitions.
IP address, MTU size, AAL mode, and desired rate queues. Interface Port Numbering for the ATM Interface The Cisco 7000 series and Cisco 7500 series routers identify an interface address by its interface processor slot number and port number in the format slot/port. Because each AIP contains a single ATM interface, the port number is always 0.
Conﬁguring the AIP At the prompt, specify the new ATM interface to conﬁgure by entering the interface Step 2 command, followed by the type (atm) and slot/port (interface processor slot number/port number). The example that follows is for an AIP in interface processor slot 1: Router(config)# interface atm 1/0 If IP routing is enabled on the system, you can assign an IP address and subnet mask to...
Configuring the AIP Virtual circuits get the entire bandwidth of the associated rate queue. If over subscription occurs, the other rate queues in bank A will miss the service opportunities. In the worst case, a 10-Mbps rate queue will take 100 Mbps if there are 10 VCs attached to it and all of them have packets to send at the same time.
Conﬁguring the AIP Setting the MTU Size To set the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size, use the following command: Router(config-if)# mtu bytes where bytes is in the range of 64 through 9188 bytes; the default is 4470 bytes. (4470 bytes exactly matches FDDI and HSSI interfaces for autonomous switching.) The no form of the command restores the default: Router(config-if)# no mtu...
AIP. These PVCs are writable into the nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) as part of the conﬁguration and are used when the Cisco IOS image is reloaded. Some ATM switches have point-to-multipoint PVCs that do the equivalent of broadcasting. If a point-to-multipoint PVC exists, then that PVC can be used as the sole broadcast PVC for all multicast requests.
Conﬁguring the AIP To create a PVC on the AIP interface, you use the atm pvc command as follows: Router(config-if)# atm pvc vcd vpi vci aal-encap protocol-type-for-mux [ peak-rate ] [ average-rate ] [ cell-quota ] where: • vcd is a per-AIP unique index value describing this VC in the range of 1 to MAXVC. •...
AAL5 processing. Mapping a Protocol Address to a PVC The Cisco IOS software supports a mapping scheme that identiﬁes the ATM address of remote hosts/routers. This address can be speciﬁed either as a virtual circuit descriptor (VCD) for a PVC or a network service access point (NSAP) address for SVC operation.
Conﬁguring the AIP AIP Statistics The AIP will maintain a count of certain errors. In addition to keeping a count of these errors, the AIP will also take a snapshot of the last VCI/VPI that caused an error. Each AIP error counter is 16 bits.
Configuring the AIP Using show Commands to Check the Conﬁguration Following are descriptions and examples of the show commands that display AIP conﬁguration information: • Use the show controllers cbus command to display the internal status of the system processor and each interface processor, including the interface processor slot location, the card hardware version, and the currently-running microcode version.
Conﬁguring the AIP • Use the show atm vc command to display statistics for all PVCs, as follows: Router# show atm vc Intfc. Input Output AAL/Encaps Peak Avg. Burst ATM0/0.1 1 AAL3/4-SMDS ATM0/0 AAL5-SNAP ATM0/0 AAL5-SNAP ATM0/0 AAL5-MUX ATM0/0 2722 AAL5-SNAP ATM0/0 AAL5-SNAP...
