Framing Format: C-bit vs. M13
Today a customer called in and had a WBDCS ds3 circuit. I see the circuit is down. He says he wants C-bit Parity. I say it should be M13 because it's channelized for 28 T1's. He changes his end to M13 and I say see there you fixed it. He says he has another circuit and it is C-bit Parity and he wants C-bit Parity on this one. I check his other circuit and sure enough it's set for C-bit Parity. So we change both ends to C-bit Parity and it comes up and he says he's happy and that's how he wants to leave it and use it like that. So I had always thought if you had a ds3 with a WBDCS on it and it was channelized for 28 T1's you had to have M13. I'll have to talk with the guys at work about this one.
And I think I figured out why Larry doesn't like to use the SMS GUI for WBDCS work and instead prefers to use the QuickPad cut-through. Because the SMS WBDCS GUI doesn't work for sh*t.
