The Telco Docs Thread

16 posts in this topic

...aka the Fuck Scribd thread. For some reason, people have uploaded a ton of hard to find documentation to this site, so I'm sticking it here where it belongs. I don't have a very permanent place for these documents at the moment, but you're more then welcome to do whatever you want with them. Here's an index of the documents:

 

- Verizon Central Office Concepts: Introduction to Telephony Basics (2002)

- CCITT7 in the 5ESS Switch

- 5ESS Cable Guidelines Handbook

- Switch-Basics-5ESS.doc (despite the name, it also talks a bit about the Alcatel E10/OCB-283 and EWSD)

- BSNL-5-ESS.pdf (there's a few of these. Sorry, some of the Indian intro documents are a bit redundant)

- Innovative Systems Applications Peripheral Administration Center software manual

- 5ESS-2000 V5 Student Guide

- Taqua/Tekelec/Genband/whoever the hell owns it now T7000 Command Line Interface Manual

- 5ESS Switch Circuit Pack Compatibility Guide

- DMS-300 International Gateway Feature Planning Guide 1998

- 5ESS Switch Input Messages: Volume 3: BKUP - END

- 5ESS Switch Input Messages: Volume 8: STP:M - WRT

- Alcatel 1000 S12 Functional Description

- Cognitronics McIAS 1610 (aka Expanded Announcement System) manuals

- EWSD Overview in One Day (Powerpoint with lots of annoying transition effects, but does a good job explaining the switch's architecture)

- AT&T Ask Yourself Handbook, Issue 42, 11/15/11

- Lahore Telecom College Alcatel Exchange Book - 1

- Alcatel 1000 E10 MTNL Training Report

- DMS Supernode XA Core Product Brief

 

And if manuals aren't your thing, there's some logs! So for some reason, someone uploaded Mexican switch logs to the site with a lot of trunk group printouts. Not only does the guy log into several DMS-100s and CS-2000s, one time his password gets echoed back in plain text!

 

Incidentally, if you look at some of the DMS-100 banners, you'll see that some of them have '88k' or 'XAC' next to the software version. These seem to be processor architectures; in the early life of the DMS-100, it was using what Nortel called the NT40 card. From what Wikipedia says, apparently it was composed mostly of discrete logic chips. Then the DMS Supernode Computing Module was based on a pair of Motorola 68k processors. By the early nineties, they were rolling out 88k processors. And by 2000, well, I have no idea. There's new CM cards Nortel made based on what they vaguely call "XA Core", or, well, Extended Architecture Core. Pretty specific, hm?

 

Anyway, on some of these CS-2000 will have something labeled 'PPC3' in their place. Kinda makes you wonder. Did they start using PowerPC chips?

You want me to mirror them? I have unlimited transfer on one of my webhosts, and plenty of space.

Sure, that'd be great! I hate when you're looking at a thread from like, five years ago and none of the links work.

Think I'll pin this thread so it doesn't get buried! Keep it up, guys.

I did PDF conversions of the proprietary DOC files in the package you linked; should I post them?

Sure! I don't particularly like .doc files, but I thought it'd be good to give people the original instead of a conversion. If they look all good though, there's definitely no reason not to.

 

Anyway, here's an internal Nortel document describing DMS-100 and CS-2000 hardware in good detail. Apparently they use (used?) the same processor as XA Core DMSes. It says XA Core processors are based on PowerPC 604 chips, so I guess that'd explain a lot.

Here's a complete set of DMS-10 documentation for generic 602.20! Sorry for the weird file formatting. 297-3601-0000.07.01.pdf is an index of all the documents in there. The General Description and the Input/Output System documents are good if you're looking for a place to start. The maintenance manuals talk about some of the test numbers, though.

Aaaand another. Someone was nice enough to send me some documents for posting; the Wiley Signaling book, some official AXE-10 command documentation, and a rather outside in look at how to identify and administer a DMS-100.

 

I also caught some GTD-5 documentation from Oracle of all people. Apparently Hawaiian Telcom hired them to make some sort of centralized administration system, so they talk about a lot of the switch commands they use in there. I think that's the only GTD-5 documentation out there on the internet. Or at least the indexable part of it.

 

So have we covered most major switch types? I'm still not finding a whole lot of useful Redcom or Siemens documentation.

Here's a few new docs; http://thoughtphreaker.omghax.ca/files/PDFs/87297653-Puncte-Sem-internationale-ITU-Point-Codes.pdf

 

So this, well, it's just an ITU list of point codes for international switching centers. Not much value unless you like international routing stuff, but it documents the switch types of quite a few gateways, and also most of the non-black/grey routes out of a country. Definitely a good thing to have if you find a place with C5 trunks. Well, if you ignore the fact that a switch with *only* C5 trunks won't have a point code.

 

Here's also some Polish Alcatel S12 logs, courtesy of some guy on Pastebin; http://pastebin.com/rb1dFdvp

There's a Russian Wikia page on the command line interface for a few digital switches in their network, complete with directory numbers sitting on them. The AXE-10 one is by far the most interesting; there's what looks to be name listings for a bunch of companies that have a PRI from it. Thankfully not in Cyrillic writing either!

Hey again.

Attached is a directory of some kind of test numbers.

Not sure what they are or why they're out on the web under AT&T's domain, but here they are.

If you're wondering I just found them using the site:att.com parameter and I believe "test number".

I'm looking for a user manual for an American Reliance Telesense 2000. Anyone know of a repo with Amrel pubs?
