The Configuration Menu
In the Main Menu shown in Figure 3-1, the element [C] is selected. The letter “C” is defined in the Key as a CSU. In the case of a card in slot 1 of shelf 1, this would be the NCC 2020 card.
The NCC 2020 contains two completely separate functions, a node controller and a T1 CSU.
The T1 CSU portion of an NCC 2020 is a TAC 2010 card. Once an NCC 2020 is installed in a node, additional T1 CSU requirements can be met by adding TAC 2010 modules.
Each node (group of shelves connected together) must have only one node controller card. This card should be located in slot 1 of shelf 1. If additional CSU cards are needed, use TAC 2010 cards instead of adding more NCC cards.
Therefore, a “C” located in the slot 1, shelf 1 position will represent an NCC 2020 while a “C” located at some other position will usually represent a TAC 2010.
