| Overview |
+----------+


A Subscriber Loop Carrier (SLC) (often pronounced "slick") is a
multiplexer which allows a large number of analog lines to be provided
over a very small number of digital lines.  A good example is the AT&T
SLC 5, which allows 192 subscriber loops to be provided through two or
four digital lines. SLCs are also referred to as Digital Loop Carriers
(DLCs).

The first SLC was installed in 1971.  As of 1995, between 5 and 10% of
all lines are served by SLCs, as are roughly 50% of all new lines built
each year.  SLCs are available from quite a few vendors.  This article
focuses on the extremely popular SLC-2000 from AT&T.

A SLC usually consists of two separate subsystems, the Central Office
Terminal (COT) and the Remote Terminal (RT).  The COT is connected to
the RT via a DS1 circuit.  The DS1 circuit may be carried over actual T1
lines, or it may be carried over another medium such as lightwave or
digital radio.  The RT is then connected to the subscribers using a
Voice Frequency (VF) circuit.  The VF circuit is what you and I would
recognize as our normal phone line.

This diagram illustrates a subscriber loop constructed using an SLC:

| SLC-2000 Shelves |
+------------------+

The SLC-2000 is divided into a number of shelves, each of which hold
circuit cards that are responsible for specific functions within the
SLC.  Some shelves are found only in COTs, others are found only in
RTs, while most shelves are used in both COTs and RTs.


Access Resource Manager (ARM) Shelf
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The ARM shelf provides feeder interface, bandwidth management and
circuit maintenance features.

The ARM shelf consists of the following functional component groups:

        . User Interface Panel (UIP)
        . Integrated Test Head (ITH)
        . Provisioning Display Controller (PDC)
        . Bandwidth Management Complex
        . DS1 distribution
        . DS1/VT feeder interfaces
        . SONET feeder


The following diagram illustrates the functional components of an ARM shelf:

The User Interface Panel (UIP) represents the highest level of
interaction possible with the SLC-2000 without plugging some other
piece of equipment into it.  Here is a close-up of the User Interface
Panel:

There are many connections on the UIP.  The Electrostatic Discharge
(ESD) ground jack is for a static control wrist strap.  The Craft
Interface Terminal (CIT) connector is a DB-25 for plugging in a CIT or a
PC running terminal emulation software.  The DDS clock connector
provides a clock source for test sets.  The Power Test Points allow you
to monitor the -48v power to the unit.

There are many LED's on the UIP.  The Attention LED is yellow when the
there is something new on the Alphanumeric Message Display (AMD).  The
Panel Fault LED is red when the UIP is in need of repair.  The Power LED
is green when -48v power is present.  The Power Minor LED is yellow when
the system is operating on battery power. The Alarm Cut Off (ACO) LED is
green when the ACO button has been pressed during an alarm.  The
Critical LED is red when a failure has caused a loss of service for 128
or more customers.  The Major LED is red when a failure has caused a
loss of service for 24 or more customers.  The Minor LED is yellow when
an error exists, but is not causing a loss of service to any customers.
The Near End (NE) Activity LED is yellow when the local terminal has
some alarm condition.  The Far End (FE) Activity LED is yellow when the
remote terminal has some alarm condition.  The Abnormal LED is yellow
when the SLC-2000 is not in a mode that provides service, such as a test
mode. The Session LED is yellow when a technician has a CIT connected to
the remote terminal.

The most interesting part of the UIP is the Alphanumeric Message Display
(AMD) and the buttons associated with its use.  The AMD displays a
single 24 character line of text.  The scroll buttons may be pushed to
move forward and backward through various menu choices.  The <Enter> and
<Escape> keys work just as you might imagine.

Three types of messages appear on the User Interface Panel (UIP):

        . Automatic Messages
        . Fault Messages
        . Alarm Messages


        Automatic Messages are triggered by pressing certain buttons,
        UIP or PDC unavailability, and SYSCTL installation.

        Fault Messages are displayed when the RETRIEVE-FAULTS command is
        selected on the UIP.

        Alarm Messages are displayed when the RETRIEVE-ALARMS command is
        selected on the UIP.


The Automatic Messages are:

        . PANEL FAULT
        . MN:NE:pdc unavail
        . UPDATE: In-Progress
        . UPDATE: done
        . SONET SUBSYS UPDATE done
        . SYSCTL INITIALIZATION
        . SYSCTL EXTENDED INITZN
        . SYSCTL EXTND INITZN done
        . STATUS -LOCAL SONET
        . STATUS -LOCAL SONET SITE
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 1
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 2
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 3
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 4
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 5
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 6
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 7
        . STATUS -REMOTE SITE 8


        "PANEL FAULT" indicates that the User Interface Panel (UIP) has
        failed and is unable to communicate with the Provisioning
        Display Controller (PDC).

        "MN:NE:pdc unavail" indicates that the Provisioning Display
        Controller (PDC) is unable to communicate with the User
        Interface Panel (UIP) because it has failed, or because software
        installation on the PDC is in progress.

        "UPDATE: In-Progress" indicates that the UPDATE button has been
        pressed and that an update is in progress.  (See "Update button"
        below.)

        "UPDATE: done" indicates that an Update has been completed in
        response to the use of the UPDATE button.

        "SONET SUBSYS UPDATE done" indicates that an Update has been
        completed in the SONET subsystem in response to the use of the
        UPD/INIT button on the SYSCTL.

        "SYSCTL INITIALIZATION" appears for 10 seconds after a SYSCTL
        with working software has been inserted.  If the UPD/INIT button
        on the SYSCTL is pressed while this message is displayed, the
        SYSCTL will reset all SONET parameters to their factory
        defaults.

        "SYSCTL EXTENDED INITZN" appears after SYSCTL INITIALIZATION has
        been completed.

        "SYSCTL EXTND INITZN done" appears after SYSCTL EXTND INITZN has
        been completed.

        "STATUS -LOCAL SONET" indicates the User Interface Panel (UIP)
        indicators reflect the alarm status of the local system only.
        The letter "L" is displayed in the SYSCTL 7-segment display.
        This occurs when the user toggles the Far-End Select (FE SEL)
        button on the SYSCTL.

        "STATUS -LOCAL SONET SITE" indicates the User Interface Panel
        (UIP) indicators reflect the combined alarm status of all the
        SONET network elements at the local site.  The SITE ID and a '.'
        is displayed in the SYSCTL 7-segment display.  This occurs when
        the user toggles the Far-End Select (FE SEL) button on the
        SYSCTL.

        "STATUS -REMOTE SITE x" indicates the User Interface Panel (UIP)
        indicators reflect the alarm status of REMOTE SITE x.  The
        number "x" is displayed in the SYSCTL 7-segment display.  This
        occurs when the user toggles the Far-End Select (FE SEL) button
        on the SYSCTL.



There are several other miscellaneous buttons on the UIP.  The LED Test
button lights up all of the LED's to allow quick identification of burnt
out LED's. The Alarm Cut Off (ACO) button shuts off the current alarm
condition. The Update button operates much like the "Detect New
Hardware" icon in Windows95, except that on the SLC-2000 it never locks
up your system.




Metallic Distribution Shelf (MDS)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The MDS provides control and distribution for Data Service 0 (DS0) and
Fiber In The Loop (FITL) interfaces.

 +-------------------------------------------------------------------+

Note: An HDOS contains 8 Optical Unit (OU) / Power Conversion Unit (PCU)
packs, not 4 as shown in the ASCII diagram.



Alarm and Test Unit (ATU)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The ATU panel reports alarms and trouble indicators using audible
alarms, visual indicators, and telemetry. In addition, the ATU provides
interfaces to the Pair Gain Test Controller (PGTC) and DC bypass pair
connections.

An ATU panel looks roughly like this:

 +---------------------------------------------------------------------+
 |      |      |      |      |      |      |      |      |      | *  * |
 |      |      |      |      |      |      |      |      |      | *  * |
 |      |      |      |      |      |      |      |      |      | *  * |
 +---------------------------------------------------------------------+

Here is a close-up of the indicator lights on the far right end of the
ATU:

Fan Units and Heat Baffles
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fan units are used in RTs to provide cooling, while COTs use heat
baffles for the same purpose.

The fan unit looks in an RT looks something like this:

+-----------------------------+
| Where might you find an RT? |
+-----------------------------+


RTs are found in quite an interesting variety of enclosures, including
metal and cast concrete.  Some are only large enough to hold the RT,
while others are environmentally controlled and large enough to hold the
equipment and several working technicians.


        . 44A + 44B Cabinets
        . WP-91071 Cabinet
        . 51A cabinet
        . 80D Cabinet (Community Service Vault)
        . 80E Cabinet (Community Service Vault)
        . Mini hut
        . Maxi hut
        . Concrete hut
        . Controlled Environment Vault (CEV)


The 44A Cabinet is a wall mounted cabinet that requires a 44B Cabinet 
to house the powering equipment.

WP-91071 Cabinet is a stand alone cabinet.

The 51A cabinet is 48" high by 29" wide by 20.5" deep.  The 51A cabinet
consists of three sections: the front door, the electronics section,
and the battery section.  The front door is hinged on the left and
opens to reveal the electronics section.  The electronics section is 
also hinged on the left, and opens to reveal the battery section.

The 80D Cabinet (Community Service Vault).

The 80E Cabinet (Community Service Vault).

The Mini hut is a prefabricated 6' by 10' by 8' high enclosure.

The Maxi hut, also known as the Electronic Equipment Enclosure (EEE) is
a prefabricated 10' by 20' by 8' high environmentally controlled
enclosure.

The Concrete Hut is 13' 2" by 7' 7 and 8' 8.5" high.  The walls of the 
Concrete Hut are made of precast concrete and are 4" thick.  The inside 
of the Concrete Hut is ventilated, heated and air conditioned.  The 
Concrete Hut is protected by intrusion alarms, smoke alarms, and high
temperature alarms.  

The Controlled Environment Vault (CEV) is a precast concrete enclosure
designed for installation below ground.  The CEV is cast in three parts:
the bottom half, the top half, and the entrance hatch.  The entrance to
a CEV shows a ladder leading down into the enclosure. The CEV is the
ultimate in environmental control.  In addition to ventilation, heating
and optional air conditioning, the CEV also features a gas monitor that
senses explosive and toxic gasses, a dehumidifier, and a sump pump.  The
CEV is lit by four fluorescent lamps backed up by an emergency lamp. The
CEV is protected by a gas alarm, a high temperature alarm, a
high-humidity alarm, a power-loss alarm, a high-water alarm and an
intrusion alarm.
