TA 900 with CRC errors on a PRI customer also have another T1 in a different TA900 on same PBX

Customer want to have redundancy and wanted to have 2 different Adtrans, but one of the T1 keeps dropping with CRC ES errors.  Could it be the clock settings?

The 47 Controlled Slip Seconds are a strong indicator that there is not a proper clock on this circuit, both sides are trying to slave off of the other side.

Change the clock setting on your end. It should clear up your issue.

How?

I tried to remove the line "Clock source is system" of the T1 configuration and it did not remove it with the no command.

Get into the router GUI and choose Current System Clock Source from the System Summary Tab and choose your timing source there,

jlvega, if T1 0/3 is the only T1 connected, it should be your timing source.

Re: TA 900 with CRC errors on a PRI customer also have another T1 in a different TA900 on same PBX

The problem is that they have one T1 in Adtran A and one T1 in Adtran B on the same PBX.  So the PBX has 2 T1 trying to be the timing source.  Is it possible to make that work (2 Atrans going into one PBX)?

Ahhh, I see that now. So they want router redundancy? I'd rather have the two T1s as 0/1 and 0/x without bonding them, and set it up on a failover. Unfortunately, I don't know of a way to disable the time source of a 900. (series)

Re: TA 900 with CRC errors on a PRI customer also have another T1 in a different TA900 on same PBX

This setup gets tricky because each device wants to have a single timing source and each T-1 must have a single timing source. Normally, the network side is the clock and the user side syncs from the network.

What you can do here is to make the PBX the clocking source. Set its clock to internal. Exact syntax depends on the PBX documentation. Then, on each of the two TA900 routers, configure timing-source T1 0/3 so that they clock from the PBX.

Telco normally want to be the timing source for PRIs. A similar setup was done here using two NV6250s. If you have free T1 ports on the e900 you can try the following as this:

First NV6250

interface t1 0/4

  description connected to unit2 0/4 for timing reference

  tdm-group 1 timeslots 1-24 speed 64

  no shutdown

Second NV6250

interface t1 0/4

  description connected to unit1 0/4 for timing reference

  tdm-group 1 timeslots 1-24 speed 64

  no shutdown

Also Add to second and third nv6250:

timing-source t1 0/4

Crossover T1 cable needed.
