I want to enable CPSS on a E1 link between two newbridge nodes. The ports are configured ok but it doesn't seem to work. We use TS0 for CPSS. If CPSS works on that link I should see this in the Highlight CPSS mode? I hope you understand my problem and you will help me solve it...

If you log on to SP1 using VT100 and you get garbage the port is properly set for CPSS and you will have to use a craft interface to log on talking CPSS to the node. The S1 switch on the control card is to reset the database on the node, but you can also use this to reset the SP1 port back to VT100...be very careful doing the following procedure as you can delete the database. Power down the node and press and hold in S1 then power up the node still pressing in S1, look at the the display it will after going trough it's start up process display a "0" ...release S1 and press S1 again....this will reset your SP1 to VT100 and you will be able to log on again. "0" reset SP1 and if it display a "1" and you carry on you will delete the database. As I warned you the "1" will delete the database, if for some reason you are stuck on "1" just power done the node without pressing S1 and it will restore as previous setting....good luck!!!
You don’t need to configure SP1 for CPSS, log on to the node via you NMS and change it to VT100, then log in using a hyper terminal session on you laptop. If the SP1 port is setup for CPSS you will have to install a dongle and you will need to set your ANM up for networking meaning that you will have to speak to the node via CPSS. The only time you need to communicate using CPSS on SP1 is when you want to backup the database.
There are 4 Dedicated CPSS recourses on the control card, namely CPSS-1, CPSS-2, CPSS-3 and CPSS-4. These CPSS recourses are configurable at 64K 16K etc. Each CPSS recourses are dedicated to a specific node and can only be used once.
A shared CPSS recourse is exactly what it means, it a sheared recourse. This means you can connect as many recourses using a shared CPSS recourse.
Be very careful connecting to many shared CPSS recourses as this can over load the control card if too many is connected.
Use the four dedicated first and if more recourses is needed install a DCP card which house 31 more dedicated recourses
The problem come up or happened because the link (E1/T1...) problem or 3600 series going down e.g power down etc. The effect of it sometimes influenced the circuits mainly the circuits made by nmti software via hyperterminal, 4601A even 5620 NM (integrated NMTI).
To solve the problem first you have to clear or de-configure the configuration/cross-connect via nmti and than you connect again the circuits. Please using Alcatel 5620 NM GUI to make cross-connection or circuits (Circuits Switch Data).
