Map95 v2.11 Release Notes 9/10/2018

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds support for the O9400R-CC4.
The following Trib cards are supported:

E1/T1
E3/T3including T3-M13 mode.
B155/622

Other Trib cards may work, but have not been tested.

This release adds support for the E3/T3 card on the O9400R-CC16. This includes T3-M13 mode.

Potential issues:
Firmware upgrade for the controllers and cards have not been tested. Map95 bug fix:

This release corrects a bug when manipulating granularity on the O9400R-CC16.When a user configures a cross-connect, Map95 needs to prevent the user from modifying the granularity that effects the cross-connected path. However, Map95 was incorrectly blocking the user from modifying granularity on adjacent paths that are not cross-connected.

Map95 does not correctly detect the 16 and 32 port versions of the E1/T1 card. This problem has been corrected for the O9400R-CC4 and O9400R-CC16, but not for the O9500.

Additional Feature:
Added a button to the "Select Device" dialog to launch a serial console. This is to allow easy access for initial configuration.

Map95 v2.10 Release Notes 8/15/2018

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds support for the O9400R, with CC16 controllers. It does not support the CC4 or PTN controllers.
The following Trib cards are supported:

Other Trib cards may support mapping, but have not been tested.

Potential issues:
- Firmware upgrade for the controllers and cards have not been tested.

Map95 problem fix:
- This release corrects a problem with the "select device" dialog. If the user manually entered the configuration file name instead of using the file browser, it would not open correct file.

Additional Features:
- A larger font display option was added. Under the "View" Menu there is a click box for "Large Font". When checked, the Map display will use a larger font size making the map easier to see on a modern high-resolution screen. If combined with SNCP View, the Map95 view will be 1325 x 803, so the user will need a wide-screen monitor with a resolution greater than this.

Map59 could not handle a space character in the path or filename for the comment file.

----------

Map95 v2.05 Release Notes 6/3/2016

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

When storing user-defined endpoints to the endpoint comment file, there was an error in the index field used to identify the controller card and also the in-band interface. This would cause the comments for these cards to get lost.

Endpoint comments would be lost if the user added/modified a comment, then performed a "Rescan Device" operation or "Select Device" operation.

This release adds the following modification:

Empty comments will be purged from the comment file. Previously, if a user added a comment, then later removed it, there would be an empty record left in the comment file. Now, the empty record will be removed.

Map95 v2.03 Release Notes 2/10/2016

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following feature:

This release modifies Map95v2 support for the o9550. At some point around the O-9550 v1.09.02 firmware release, Loop changed the way in-band channel cross-connects are reported. Map95v2 was modified to work with the new mechanism.

----------

Map95 v2.02 Release Notes 11/16/2015

1.0 INTRODUCTION

Loop's firmware release, v3.04.01 (0082) for the O-9500, changed the underlying SNMP mechanism for reading the low-speed card cross-connect map. As a result, Map95 and Map95v2 were not compatible with the O-9500 running v3.04.01 or later. This release modifies Map95v2 to support the new mechanism.

This software release supports the following low-speed cards on the o9500:

Q-T1 (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
8RT-B (tested)
8-EM (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
12FXS (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
12FXO (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
EIA530-A (tested)
RS232-8 (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
TDMoE (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
LS-Optical (tested - also supports right-click configuration)
V.35-A (not tested, but similar to EIA530-A)
V.21-A (not tested, but similar to EIA530-A)
V.36-A (not tested, but similar to EIA530-A)
Magneto (not tested, but similar to FXS)

This release drops support for the following cards on the o9500:
V.35 Q-E1
G.703
GSHDSL-2
GSHDSL-4
RS422-A
Dry-Contact
8DBRA

There was no change to the cards supported on the o9550.

Note: This Map95 version is not backward compatible with previous versions of the o9500 firmware.

----------

Map95 v2.0 Release Notes 9/17/2015

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This is the initial release of Map95 Version 2, which supports both the 9500 and the 9550. We are temporarily treating Map95v2 as a separate product from Map95 until we have more customer feedback. This is because Map95v2 works differently from Map95 and current 9500 customers may prefer to continue using Map95 Version 1. Both versions can be installed at the same time, and Map95v2 can use Map95 Version 1 configuration files.

The biggest difference between Map95v2 and Map95 is with regard to pre-reading the cross-connect map. Map95 pre-reads the entire map on program start. Map95v2 reads the map on-demand, as the customer navigates through the cards. The change is due to the large number of cross-connects that the 9550 supports. Pre-reading the 9550's cross-connect map can take a very long time, on the order of 10s of minutes, which would be frustrating when the user simply wants to view or make a small mapping change.

Map95v2 uses the same controller keys as Map95.

----------

Map95 v1.04 Release Notes 1/15/2014

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following feature:

A copy of PuTTYtel is included in the install package and will co-install with Map95. PuTTYtel is both a terminal emulator and a telnet client. Map95 has been modified to launch PuTTYtel directly from the tools menu, giving the user a quick and easy way to open a console session with the O9500.

----------

An integrated TFTP server was added to Map95 that allows the user to easily send and receive configuration files and to send firmware images to the O9500. Access to this feature can be found under the "File - Transfer" menu.

----------
