In my previous Tutorial on Frame Relay, I stated that of all the technologies one must master to become an expert, Frame Relay is the most important because an understanding of Frame Relay can lead to mastery of other technologies such as the nonbroadcast multiple access (NBMA) nature of ATM and Frame Relay and the circuit-switched nature of ISDN.

In terms of preparing for the CCIE lab, I feel that ISDN is probably the second most important topic to master because a significant number of points on the lab exam can come from ISDN- and DDR-related topics. It's worth remembering that ATM, ISDN, and Frame Relay were all developed as part of the same standards process, a process that followed and drew from the OSI model development.

This Tutorial will cover the knowledge needed for both the written and the lab portion of the CCIE exam. Does this mean that material outside of this paper related to ISDN cannot appear on either the written or the lab exams? Of course not! CCIE candidates are responsible for anything that can appear in IOS, ANYTHING! Let's start by taking a look at the requirements for the written exam according to the Routing and Switching Exam Blueprint published on Cisco's web site.

Section 8.1 of the blueprint covers the following material:

ISDN: Link Access Procedure on the D channel (LAPD), Basic Rate Interface (BRI) / Primary Rate Interface (PRI) framing, signaling, mapping, dialer map, interface types, B/D channels, PPP Multilink

Although Section 8.6 of the blueprint covers the following material, we will only discuss the Point to Point Protocol or PPP portion:

Leased Line Protocols: High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC), Point to Point Protocol (PPP), async & modems, compression.

Finally, Section 8.7 of the blueprint covers the following material:

Dial on Demand Routing (DDR): dial backup.

The remainder of the paper will cover topics essential for the CCIE lab portion of the exam.

ISDN Overview

ISDN was developed as a digital solution to carry data, voice, and video traffic over a circuit-switched connection using the existing PSTN infrastructure. ISDN is commonly used in the home and small office market for Internet access and telecommuting and for backing up dedicated WAN circuits such as Frame Relay or T-1 circuits. ISDN comes with three different types of channels, although only the first two are commonly seen. The three types of channels are as follows:

B Channel64 Kbps
D Channel16 Kbps (BRI) or 64 Kbps (PRI)
H0 Channel384 Kbps (PRI Only)

A single D channel is used for control and signaling information to set up and tear down B and H channels, although a D channel can also support user data transmission under certain circumstances. B channels are used for end user voice, video, and data traffic. H channels are only used by PRI interfaces for high bandwidth services such as videoconferencing and are equivalent to 6 B channels. You should also note that a single D channel can carry signaling for multiple B channels at the same time allowing end users a full 64 Kbps clear channel unlike the overhead associated with ATM. These channels are combined to form Basic Rate Interfaces (BRI) and Primary Rate Interfaces (PRI) circuits.

BRI2 B Channels + 1 16 Kbps D Channel
PRI (US & Japan)23 B Channels + 1 64 Kbps D Channel
PRI (Europe & Australia)30 B Channels + 1 64 Kbps D Channel

The BRI Physical Layer specification is International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) (formerly the Consultative Committee for International Telegraph and Telephone [CCITT]) I.430.

ISDN Primary Rate Interface (PRI) service offers 23 B channels and one D channel in North America and Japan, yielding a total bit rate of 1.544 Mbps (the PRI D channel runs at 64 Kbps). ISDN PRI in Europe, Australia, and other parts of the world provides 30 B channels plus one 64-Kbps D channel and a total interface rate of 2.048 Mbps. The PRI Physical Layer specification is ITU-T I.431.

ISDN Physical Layer (Layer 1) frame formats differ depending on whether the frame is outbound (from terminal to network) or inbound (from network to terminal). Both Physical Layer interfaces are shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1.

The frames are 48 bits long, of which 36 bits represent data. The bits of an ISDN Physical Layer frame are used as follows:

F - Framing Bit - Provides synchronization

L - Load balancing - Adjusts the average bit value

E - Echo of previous D Bit - Ensures contention resolution when several terminals on a passive bus contend for a channel

A - Activation bit - Activates devices

S - Spare Bit - Unassigned

B1, B2, and D - B1 Channel Bits, B2 Channel Bits, and D Channel (4 bits * 4000 frames/sec = 16 Kbps) - Handle user data.

ISDN Architecture

The ISDN architecture was developed after the basic OSI model work was done, and it supplements it. ISDN architecture reflects the strong service provider orientation of its designers, with greater initial emphasis on management and control.

Functional Model

In contrast to OSI, the ISDN reference model defines not just protocols and services, but functional groups that define sets of common capabilities, and reference points that define the interactions of different kinds of functional groups.

Figure 2.

ISDN components include terminal equipment, terminal adapters, and terminating equipment. ISDN terminal equipment comes in two types: TE1 and TE2. Equipment that meets the ISDN standard, such as ISDN terminals and ISDN phones, is known as terminal equipment type 1 (TE1). Equipment that does not meet ISDN standards is referred to as terminal equipment type 2 (TE2). TE1s use a four-wire, twisted-pair digital link to connect to the ISDN network. TE2s connect to the ISDN network through a terminal adapter or TA. An ISDN TA can be either a standalone device or a daughter card inside the TE2. If the TE2 is implemented as a standalone device, it connects to the TA via a standard Physical Layer interface such as the EIA/TIA-232-C (formerly RS-232-C), V.24, or V.35.

After the TE1 and TE2 devices, the next functional group in the ISDN network is the network termination type 1 (NT1) or network termination type 2 (NT2) device. In the US, the NT1 is a customer premises equipment (CPE) device. In most other parts of the world, the NT1 is part of the network provided by the carrier. The NT2 is typically found in digital private branch exchanges (PBXs). An NT1/2 device can also be found as a single device that combines the functions of an NT1 and an NT2.

Reference Points

ISDN specifies a number of reference points that define logical interfaces between functional groupings, such as TAs and NT1s. ISDN reference points include the following as seen in Figure 2:

  1. The reference point between a TE2 device and a TA
  2. The reference point between the CPE and the NT2
  3. The reference point between the NT1 and NT2 devices. (Note: When no NT2 device is used as is normally the case for BRIs, the CPE-to-carrier interface is called the S/T interface.)
  4. The reference point between NT1 devices and line-termination equipment in the carrier network. (Note: The U reference point is relevant only in North America, where the carrier network does not provide the NT1 function.)

ISDN Protocol Model

OSI tends to emphasize the user protocols at each layer, which often makes it difficult to explain the roles of such things as routing protocols, ARP, etc. ISDN's protocol model allows for User (U), Control (C), and Management (M) "plane" protocols at each layer, which is a concept that retrofits nicely into OSI.

D channels use a number of different protocols in a layered format similar to the OSI model. The two protocols you need to be familiar with as a CCIE are the Q.921 and Q.931 protocols. Like HDLC, Q.921 is a Data Link Layer protocol that provides communication between the ISDN switch and the end device. These communications are primarily for control, with the Q.921 frames carrying the Q.931 protocol.

Q.921, however, can also carry X.25 packets for low-speed shared data applications, such as automatic teller machines.

Q.931 is a layer three protocol used for call setup and tear down that uses Q.921 for transport. Debug ISDN q931 is an extremely useful debugging command for the CCIE because you can watch the call setup and tear down as it takes place and troubleshoot your connection. Debug ISDN q921 is another useful troubleshooting command, but I find it more useful for working with real ISDN switches than ISDN simulators.

CCIE Lab Tip: If you are only used to working with an ISDN simulator instead of an actual ISDN switch, you will probably find that the response time from a simulator is much faster than an actual ISDN switch, so wait a couple of extra seconds when you are working with a real ISDN switch before you decide you are having a problem communicating with the switch.

Howard's View of ISDN Architecture

Excerpt from the WAN Survival Guide, by Howard Berkowitz's (to be published in November 2000 by Wiley)

ISDN, which included both narrowband and broadband (B-ISDN) services, was intended as an advanced service interface to the public carrier network. The ISDN effort broke new ground in architectural specification, building on the OSI experience.

For effective deployment, ISDN required two key components to be present inside carrier networks: digital transmission and internal control, using Signaling System #7 (SS7). Both of these components were valuable for the carriers, whether or not ISDN existed.

When approaching WAN services, readers with a pure data background -- especially a pure LAN background -- need to take care not to fall into one trap that interferes with understanding. The trap is trying to force the specifics of the OSI Reference Model onto WAN technologies that were not designed in strict adherence to that model. While the basic idea of reference models and the principle of layering are universal with respect to modern protocols, the specific seven layers of the original OSI model simply do not apply to many technologies. It can be frustrating and futile to try to force a given ATM, SONET, ISDN, etc., WAN technology into a specific OSI layer.

Classic telecommunications technical standards are architected to allow distinctions between bearer services and value-added services, between customer premises equipment (CPE) and provider equipment, and between local carrier and interexchange carrier responsibility.
