T3 E3 Transmit and Receive Configuration
Various options have been provided to configure the Tx/Rx parameters for each T3/E3 port. A detailed description of configuration setup for T3/E3 products is given below.
Listed are the possible frame error insertion configurations supported in T3 systems -
- Single F Bits
- Single M Bits
- Four F Bits
- Four M Bits
Frequency Offset for T3 ranges from +2236 to -2236 in Hertz (Hz) or from +50 to -50 in ppm. This option is available when the clock source is set to Internal.
T3 Frame Error Counting
Count F & M Bits
Setting this option will result in counting both F and M bit errors when reporting frame errors.
Count F Bits
Setting this option will result in counting F bit errors alone when reporting frame errors.
Count M Bits
The M-Bits (multiframing bits) form the multiframe alignment signal. The Receive DS3 Framer will use these bits to acquire and maintain frame synchronization. Setting this option will result in counting M bit errors alone when reporting frame errors.
FEAC Message (only for T3 Systems with C-Bit Parity Farming Format)
The third C-bit in subframe 1 is used as a FEAC channel. Using the FEAC channel, alarm or status information from the far-end terminal can be sent back to the near-end terminal. The Monitor T3 Line indicates the incoming FEAC message as shown in the figure below:
The actual message that is to be sent, via the FEAC channel, consists of six (6) bits. As a consequence, there are 64 possible FEAC message values that can be sent. The following predefined codes are supported by GL's T3 Analyzer. In addition, any arbitrary code entered by the user is also supported. For this the user can directly enter the value on the text field labeled as Binary.

- User Defined
This is used to send information regarding any particular T1 channel within T3 during the data transmission with the appropriate FEAC messages.
Burst option is used to send the required FEAC message to the end terminal a single time (single shot).
Continuous option is used to continuously send the FEAC messages to the end terminal.
Binary - Allows the user to enter any arbitrary code in binary format which will be transmitted as user-defined FEAC code.
