WCS LAPD Server over T1 E1


Overview

LAPD Server is GL's WCS based server module which runs as a special task under the GL Server. The WCS LAPD Server provides Layer 3 LAPD protocol services over GL's T1 E1 boards. It permits to create multiple LAPD links of various bandwidths (time-slots, sub-channels) and provides UDP interface to the client applications for generating & receiving LAPD payload over these created LAPD streams.

LAPD is the protocol used on ISDN's (Integrated Services Digital Network) D channel. Link Access Procedures on the D channel (LAPD), specified in ITU-T Q.920 and ITU-T Q.921, is the second layer protocol on the ISDN protocol stack in the D channel. The LAPD Server provides LAPD protocol services over GL's T1/E1 boards. It permits to create multiple LAPD links of various bandwidths (time-slots, and sub-channels) and provides UDP interface to the client applications for generating and receiving LAPD payload over these created LAPD streams.

LAPD is also used in GL’s MAPS™-ISDN to modify LAPD call parameters and message contents to ensure MAPS™-ISDN communicates with the system under test.


Main Features

  • Provides multiple data link connections on a single physical link
  • Ability to detect errors and recover from lost, erred or duplicated information
  • Releases data link connections
  • Maintains flow control of transfer of data
  • Supports Automatic TEI Assignment Procedures
  • Upon detection of an error it re-initializes data link connections
  • Supports both User and Network end

Syntax

Start LAPD Server Module
run task "LapdServerT[E]1:StartLapD”;
This command invokes the LAPD Server as a special task under GL Server.

Creation of LAPD Links
inform task n "NEW_LAPD_LINK LINKID i TEI j SAPI k USER[NETWORK] STREAM TS|HC|SC LinkSpec";
Provides 2 byte integer number as unique Link ID for all the added links. Assign TEI and SAPI values for the LAPD link. Provides options to select link operation modes, can be either User or Network operation modes and stream configurations to select Hyper Channel, One time-slot, or Sub channels.

Link Statistics
inform task n "GET_STATS LINKID x";
Display statistics for the requested Link ID “x”.

Establishing LAPD links & UDP Transport
inform task n "STARTTRAFFIC ServerPortNumber ClientPortNumber ClientIpAddress";
This command will start the LAPD protocol negotiation [SABME, UA & RR messages] with the DUT on all the added LAPD links. Configures the server with the UDP transport parameters and informs the server to get started for the data [user payload] Tx/Rx over the configured UDP transport.


Example Scripts

run task "LapdServerE1:StartLapD";
inform task 1 "ADDLINK LINKID 1 TEI 0 SAPI 0 NETWORK STREAM TS #1:16";
inform task 1 "STARTTRAFFIC 22000 33000 192.168.1.23";
inform task 1 "GET_STATS LINKID 1";
inform task 1 "STOP";
