"Yellow Alarm" with a Digium TE121 card

Hi all,

I try to connect my Asterisk server to a PRI line through a Digium TE121 card.

Type of switch used by KPN is "5ES" (brand KPN) Framing: CCS Coding: HDB3 Signalling: CMCRC

The zttool software show me a “Yellow Alarm”:

Current Alarms: Yellow Alarm Sync Source: Internally clocked IRQ Misses: 2 Bipolar Viol: 0 Tx/Rx Levels: 0/ 0 Total/Conf/Act: 31/ 31/ 0

The driver is loaded:

[code]# dmesg | grep Wildcard
wcte12xp: Found a Wildcard TE121

lspci -n | grep d161

04:08.0 0200: d161:8000 (rev 11)

lsmod | grep wc

wcte12xp 65764 31
zaptel 190852 65 wcte12xp
[/code]

Here are my configuration files and logs:

# cat /etc/zaptel.conf loadzone=nl defaultzone=nl span=1,1,0,ccs,hdb3 bchan=1-15,17-31 dchan=16

And finally the Asterisk status:

Any idea to have a green line :frowning: ???

Hi

2 things.

In europe on a pri I would have expected crc4 and also are you 100% sure the switchtype is 5ess and not euroisdn ?

Ian

Thanks, it work now with the crc4 parameter :smile:

kpn uses crc4 in NL, but all other providers in NL does not, just some extra information. i don’t use KPN in NL they are way to expensive :smile:
