My organisation currently has a wide area network configured as a ring, using our own microwave equipment. The network runs two seperate DS3 circuits. At each location, there is a Lucent AP-1000 with LMC 5245 DS3 Wan Adapter which converts to Ethernet and provide each lan with ethernet service. This network works fine. I am now attempting to add another site using a cisco 3800 router with two (2) NM-1T3 interface cards. My challenge is that the circuit has a numerous amount of errors. The section below highlights the configurations and errors.
All AP-1000 routers Interface: t3 MTU: 4470 Clocking: Internal Crc mode: crc16 Type mode: ds3 Line type:dsx3Cbit Parity Line length: 100 Line coding: dsx3B3ZS SendCode: dsx3SendNoCode Clock source: internal ScramblingMOde: dsx3Cisco

My Microwave manual provides the following Information on DS3 interface
Data Rate - Asynchronous 44.736Mb/s +- 20ppm Line Code - B3ZS Input - +5.7 to -1.8 dBm at DSX-3 Cross connect attenuated by up to450ft of cable Output - +1 to +4 dBm, LBO out , 0 to +3 dBm, LBO in (measured all-1s unframed) Pulse Shape - TR-TSY-000499 complaint Impedence - 75 ohms, nominal (10 to 50 MHz)
These are my challenges:-1 - Am I using the right interface card and router? 2 - Am I missing a configuration somewhere? 3 - Are there compatability issues between the two routers?
I tried the following(individually, not all at once:-1 - Changing the modes of the dsu - result - line protocol switch to down 2 - Changing scrambling - result - line protocol switch to down 3 - Changing CLock source to line - result - no change in errors 4 - Changed the parity - line protocol switch to down
I am at a complete loss.
Look forward to your responses. Thank You
