When we have fiber interconnected systems (frames), can we have a Party-Line created in system A, used by system B with resources from system B, as if the party-line was created locally in system B? I.e. If the resource is manipulated by Dynam-EC. Is there a difference between creating the local or remote Party-Line?

 Answer: When two linked sets matrices are merged together into one linked project, regardless of the number of fiber rings, they become one system

i.e. all matrices share the same 399 PLs etc. One thing to note however is that there are 1304 fiber timeslots on a fiber ring. If there are multiple fiber rings in a linked set then each fiber ring has its own 1304 timeslots i.e. it is 1304 timeslots per fiber ring. There is however a system wide limit of 2048 trunks. This is across trunk types.system limit.

Each PL is given a unique global number therefore to make it easier to understand where the PL is hosted we recommend for networked systems that you allocate PLs per matrix


matrix #1  allocated  PL 1-20

matrix #2  allocated  PL 21-40

matrix #3  allocated  PL 41-60



*Even if you do not create (or use)  all 20 PLs on a matrix from an Admin point of view it is easier to manage

**if importing a map into an existing config , be aware that you will need to manage the global numbers of the new config , to ensure they do not conflict with existing PLs

Because the Partylines are a global resource when adding or deleting members of a PL – ensure to download to the Matrix where the added /deleted members come from


PL#1 is hosted in Matrix #1

Port 5, 6 from matrix # 4 are added to the PL #1

You need to ensure that a download (apply map) is made to matrix #4
