This Hands-On ISDN Basic Rate Interface (BRI) Provisioning and Maintenance course begins by presenting the theory and structure of ISDN BRI services. This includes ISDN Components, ISDN Connections, Basic Rate Interface versus Primary Rate Interface (PRI), Custom ISDN Versus NationalStandard ISDN, ISDN Services and ISDN Features.
From this point the course presents the different 5ESS Switch Modules and Peripheral Units that provide ISDN BRI service. The Peripheral Units covered are the Integrated Services Line Unit (ISLU), Integrated Services Line Unit 2 (ISLU2), Access Interface Unit (AIU), Packet Switch Unit (PSU) and Packet Switch Unit 2 (PSU2). From here the course presents the translation Recent Change Views and fields required to provision ISDN BRI services. Next, the course presents ISDN voice and data call flow identifying the Recent Change Views used to perform call processing and control the call routing.
This is followed with a lesson presenting 5ESS Switch maintenance messages (Input and Output) used to test and verify ISDN BRI service. This includes examples of the messages and analysis of output messages from the 5ESS Switch. The course presents ISDN Protocol (Q.921 and Q.931) and their Information Elements.
The last lesson addresses ISDN BRI Protocol. This includes instruction covering the different layers, messages and elements of ISDN Protocol, how to correctly run a protocol session and how to interpret its results. 5ESS documents are extensively used and referenced through this course.
This course also provides procedures, tables, charts, case work, information on the resolution of 5ESS Switch ISDN BRI service problems and recommendations of what to do next.
The objective of ISDN Basic Rate Interface Provisioning and Maintenance is to train provisioning and maintenance personnel to build and translate ISDN BRI services along with correcting ISDN BRI service problems in a 5ESS Switch.
